  • Though we were married in Indianapolis, we live out of state, and so we booked The Band Etc. and Encore Entertainment for our wedding sight unseen. I am SO glad that we did, because they were incredible. Darren and Larry were friendly and easy to communicate with. They were able to accommodate all our requests, even learning a few songs for our ceremony and reception. And the performance--wow! The piano for our processional was so moving, the jazz standards set the tone for the cocktail hour, and the band killed it during the reception. The dance floor was packed all night and multiple guests said it was the most fun they've ever had at a wedding. The live flute solo during Toto's "Africa" blew everyone away. Definitely hire them for your next event--you won't be disappointed!

  • Band was excellent on so many levels. They were professional and easy to work with and help us with ceremony and dinner music as well as providing sound for officiant and readers during ceremony. Very strong musicians and vocalists and they have a solid songbook for many tastes. If you use the Band Etc., you won't be sorry.

  • The Band Etc was absolutely amazing. They were professional, on time, and cared about all the small details. They sounded fantastic and our guests continue to rave about how great they were. They read the room and kept people on the dance floor. The band was a non-negotiable for my now husband and am so happy we had The Band Etc. Would highly recommend you have them on your big day, you won't be disappointed!

  • This band was top notch! My whole experience was wonderful. Larry was very responsive and easy to get ahold of. Durning the wedding they had the entire place out of their seats and dancing! At the end of the night they had the whole crowd wanting an encore. 10 out of 10 would recommend!

  • There's not enough stars that the Band Etc. can receive from us, we heard so many wonderful compliments from our wedding guests! The Band Etc. was easy to work with and make the reception fun and memorable! They set the mood for the cocktail reception, made announcements throughout the evening, played for dinner and then wowed our guests with the best dancing music! Their energy and song selection kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night. Don't hesitate to add the horns, as they just enhanced the live band experience! The Band Etc. nailed it and we were so thrilled to have them be a part of the wedding day celebration! They helped us give our daughter and her new husband the reception they dreamed of and one that our guests will never forget as well. We are so thankful we selected the Band Etc. for the reception entertainment everything was simply PERFECT!!

  • Larry was great to work with and the band sounded great - great energy, song mix, etc. We changed our timeline a couple of times right up to the event, and Larry incorporated the changes flawlessly. They provided recorded music for the cocktail hour and dinner, made the announcements of the wedding party and speaker intros, introduced the first dance, father/daughter dance, and mother/son dance and then the band played for the balance of the reception. Everything went perfectly. Highly recommend The Band, Etc. for your event. When compared to other bands that we have heard at receptions, The Band, etc. is not only a great band, they are a great value.

  • The Band, Etc. was nothing short of amazing! Larry was always so helpful and easy to work with. They have a great song list and were accommodating with a few special requests we had. The dance floor was packed all night long and our guests are still talking about how good they were! I can't say enough good things about them!

  • Look no further... hire these guys! Great music, packed dance floor ALL night. Guests all commented too on how amazing they were. Wish we could have gone a couple more hours! We also used a couple of the band members for ceremony & cocktail hour music....exactly what we wanted. Low-key, accommodating, super easy to work with. Cannot say enough good things! THANKS the Band, etc.!

  • I've used the Band Etc on three occasions for reunions I've planned. Nothing but rave reviews over the last three years. They sound great. They're always on-time ready to go. Larry is easy to work with leading up to the event. We've been nothing but satisfied - hence the three bookings over the last three years.

  • The Only issue we had was the band was out of tune for the first dance which is kind of a big deal. Not sure what happened or if the sound check was skipped. Once they figured that out, the band rocked!

    responded with the following comments.

    My apologies for the unexpected and unusual hum on the first dance. The first dance was rough, but it wasn't intonation on the bands part. We were experiencing an electronic hum through the electrical system that wasn't present at our soundcheck. Once our soundman figured out the source, all was good. Again, my apologies to the bride and groom.

  • The Band Etc... definitely knew how to bring the party. We hired them for our company's Year End Party and they did a fantastic job. They didn't take any short cuts on the music- even whipping out a couple surprises in some songs that our guests loved. They were very easy to work with and incredibly responsive- keeping in contact when necessary, answering my questions in a very timely manner, and being flexible on set up times the day of our event. We will definitely keep them in mind for future events!
