  • Our experience with EBE and Dream Time was exactly what we had hoped for especially given the circumstances of having a wedding during a pandemic! They were flexible with our 3 venue changes, they put together a schedule that worked for us both, they were on time, they recommended do's/dont's based on their expertise doing this numerous times before, and most important they know how to get the crowd going and perform! We could not have asked for a better night and we highly recommend them!

  • Barcelona had a wide variety of music and amazing voices. Engaged with the audience so guests would get up and dance. They played nonstop for 5 hours with softer music during the meals. Would highly recommend the!!

  • We don't know where to begin to shine praise on Elaine Igoe, our Wedding Planner for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding held at the Chubb Hotel & Conference Center on February 22, 2020. Our Mary came to us saying she thought we should have a wedding planner. I told her, "I got this!" Mary insisted! Elaine came on the scene and I instantly became aware of her importance! Now there are wedding planner's and there are wedding planner's... We hit the jackpot with Elaine! I was straight away put at ease by Elaine's ability to amicably coordinate all the essential components to put together a successful wedding. My head was spinning watching her go; whether is was the venue, band, photographer, guests, the list goes on..., Elaine had all facets covered! Elaine and I got together and whether by email, text, phone calls, or in person, she was always on the scene, putting it all together while making us feel at ease. Several days prior to the wedding day, Elaine told us to all relax a... Read more

  • Our experience with EBE was extremely positive! They were easy to work with. Jon Mulhern, our DJ, was very responsive and on top of things. He really helped make our New Years' Eve wedding a night to remember. I'm older and come from a large family, so we've been to a lot of weddings. Several of my family members remarked that our wedding was they best they had ever attended, and also mentioned that Jon did a wonderful job. Thanks Jon!

  • We found EBE - Paris after they performed at my best friend's wedding a few years ago, and they were just as amazing (if not more so) at ours. Troy made preparation for the wedding day easy, and the band played the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception beautifully. Paris is so talented and had such great energy, our guests never left the dance floor! They played all the songs we wanted, and more importantly, none of the ones we didn't. 10/10 would recommend.

    Love this (and this photo!!)! Thank you so much for choosing Paris and EBE - all the best! (P.S. We'd love to see more photos! 😍)

  • We were SO lucky to get to work with EBE and specifically, Marcia from FIJI. The company is organized and professional and they let you know from the beginning they know what they're doing! Fiji was just tremendous!! Their music is fun and lively and everyone was up and dancing the whole time. Marcia was so fun to work with and get to know in the planning process. She checked and triple checked the order of our wedding, connected with the venue and crafted a set list that was to die for. We are so lucky that they were our band and we got to share our day with them!!

    Thank you so much, Sara! Marcia & Fiji raved about your celebration... so glad the feeling was mutual!! Congrats again!

  • From the first phone call to EBE to the last song played at my daughter's wedding, our experience with EBE personnel was exceptional. They were professional, courteous during the booking process and when we met with Eric, the bandleader, he listened to us and tailored the music to what we liked but also gave great suggestions as to what plays well with guests. Even though we had the wedding in a gorgeous venue, our band, London Bridge, was the highlight of the party. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to host the most awesome party ever.

    Thank you!! This is what we work so hard to achieve. It truly makes our day to hear it and to know we played a part in the success of your wonderful celebration. Thank you again for everything and much continued happiness to you both!!

  • Due to Covid-19, we had to cancel our 150 person wedding. In May when we decided to cancel with 187 days out, it was a state mandate that you are not allowed to be indoor with groups of over 25 people! With the unknown of where the world will be in November, we knew a 25 person indoor wedding would not work which is why we canceled the wedding. Although PA opened again in June, as of July 2020, we are back to only allowing 25 people for an indoor wedding. Again, who knows where the world will be in November. We emailed EBE with over 6 months notice to let them know of our very difficult decision. They very quickly responded with a cite from the contract stating "if for ANY reason you cancel, and they do not find someone to fill the spot of our wedding day...they keep the full deposit" It is a global pandemic.. We handed them a $2000 cash deposit for a band that cost $8000. We emailed them showing our frustration and they simply replied that they are amazing and that they have been arou... Read more

  • We were forced to cancel our wedding over 5 months in advance because the government closed down our venue. They wouldn’t work with us on any level and insisted they deserved all of our deposit money. This relatively new owner only cares about money- not you or your event. Save yourself the aggravation I’m feeling and go to anyone else

  • We hired Amsterdam to be our wedding band. They also provided us 2 musicians to accompany a few singing friends of ours during the ceremony. The band itself was great! They were very talented, super energetic, and stayed far away from being cliche-cheesy, which was our #1 request. Mike (band leader and drummer) was super communicative and really great to work with. The contracting and negotiation did have a hiccup or two though. We dealt with Matt from the EBE office. It all ended up working out in the end, but we we're quoted the wrong price at the onset and as we we're sorting out the details it did get a little frustrating because we had to recall some of the earlier emails to remind the company of what they had quoted us (after the initial price correction). This is the kind of stuff that happens in negotiations anyway, but just wanted to mention it as something to keep an eye on. One of the things that we had in our package was some extra wash lighting for the band. Some... Read more

  • I learned about EBE when I attended a college friend's wedding in Philadelphia, where they did an amazing job customizing the playlist and overall vibe to the bride and groom, creating an amazing party atmosphere. When my husband and I started to plan our Bucks County wedding, we only wanted to work with vendors who we knew or had experienced in the past - and EBE was an obvious choice. We selected John Guarracino as our DJ for our wedding reception, who was great to work with. My husband and I both travel a lot for work, and we also live in Chicago - so we were not able to use "traditional planning" processes or meet with John in person. He was able to flex to our schedule, communicate via email, meet with us via Skype, and plan our wedding reception down to the minute. For context, the wedding coordinator that came with our venue was not responsive or helpful leading up to our big day, and John was able to fill in the gaps and work directly with the planner on the day of (so that we ...
