  • A band is going to cost a pretty penny regardless of who you hire...so we wanted to make sure we picked a great one, and we did! We had seen For the Win in Clarendon and heard they did weddings, and we are SO happy we decided to book them! My husband and I were a bit worried about the first dance & father-daughter songs (we almost didn't even do them) but the band was able to shorten the songs we picked and also made those dances fun and relaxed. The rest of the night was a blast and everyone stuck around until the very end. I can't say enough good things about the entire band. We are excited to continue going to their shows in DC/Arlington.

  • They rock, they've got stage presence, one guest told me he danced more here than at his own wedding, multiple asked where we found them, what suggestions we made that got them to have such a great setlist... etc.

  • This band made our reception EXACTLY what we wanted it to be, an absolute party!! They are top notch vocals, performance and EVERYTHING. Phenomenal to work with and I'm searching for another opportunity to recommend or re-book them. Worth every penny & so much more. You will be hard pressed to find a better wedding band!

  • If you want your wedding to be the best it can be then you need to hire For The Win. The band is awesome. My feeling for music at a wedding is...…."the music either makes it or breaks it". This band definitely made it!!!!!!!! Everyone attending said that it was the best wedding they ever were invited to in years. Just a incredible night of music and fun.

  • Booking For the Win as our wedding band was one of the best choices we made throughout the wedding planning process. They were absolutely incredible! Our guests could not stop raving about how great For the Win was at bringing the energy to help get everyone out on the dance floor. Between Amanda and Ryan, they have the great vocal range to nail any song--and the instrumentals are electric! For the Win was very responsive to our questions and requests for the playlist and made the planning very easy. If you are looking for a band that can light it up with current hits, but also has the ability to play some motown/traditional wedding reception songs, we cannot recommend For the Win highly enough!

  • The most consistent comment guests gave about my wedding was "how fantastic the band was!" Fantastic is not a strong enough adjective to describe how amazing, enthusiastic, and fun For The Win is. They made our wedding. I specifically chose them after hearing them live, because I knew they could pull off oldies for our parents and current hits for everyone else. They keep the party going all night long. I saw empty chairs and a full dance floor, couldn't have ask for a better band. They played everything we requested and even more. I can not highly recommend them enough, see them live and you'll see why!

  • For The Win DC was the BEST decision we made during our wedding planning. We met the band while playing at a local bar and they were so friendly and we instantly fell in love with their talent and crowd interaction. Throughout our wedding planning they checked in and made sure they had all the information they needed from us to make sure our day ran smoothly. Amanda went above and beyond to accommodate us when we asked for our first dance song in advance to practice. She also called me the week before to solidify all of our song requests and information. On the day of the wedding our guests did not leave the dance floor! For The Win interacted with all of our guests and created a fun atmosphere the whole night. We can't even count how many of our guests came up to us during and after our wedding saying it was the best band they've heard and the best wedding they've been to because of the amazing band! They played such an incredible variety of songs that everyone from our grandp... Read more

  • Having a band for the wedding was even better than we had hoped, For The Win made it so much FUN! All our guests mentioned the band and how the songs sounded just like the originals! Everyone was up and dancing all night long, They were flexible with a flash mob dance we wanted to do and so easy to work with! We recommend them very highly!!

  • We booked For the Win for our wedding. They were easy to coordinate with, flexible with song choices, accommodating of our PG audience and special requests. We would book them again in a heartbeat!!! Several family and friends have already reached out to ask about them. They kept the dance floor full of energy and alive all night, and had our guests out there dancing for hours! Super fun, super high energy!!

  • For The Win (FTW) played at my sisters wedding and we knew that we had to have them play ours as well. We worked directly with Amanda their lead singer and she was super responsive and extremely easy to work with. She really wanted to know the type of band that my bride wanted to have on her big day, and they tailored their act to match our expectations. The lead singer Amanda has an incredible voice, and they have an awesome male lead singer as well which opens up their playlist for a lot of fun on stage banter. The rest of the band is so awesome and so cool you can really tell they love what they are doing. The final thing that I would say is that I think they are VERY affordable. Everyone that went to our wedding was talking about the band ever since our big day, they were a 10 out of 10. If you are interested in having a good time for your wedding, and getting your guests out on the dance floor, FTW is perfect for you! We wish we could do it all over again.

  • For the Win rocked out at our wedding. Everyone walked away saying it was literally the best band they had ever heard at a wedding and I had multiple engaged friends grabbing for business cards so they could hire for theirs. Nobody left the dance floor the entire time which is exactly what I wanted :) It was the best energy, best vocals, best instruments ever. I'm so glad I picked them for my wedding because I didn't want a traditional cookie-cutter wedding band that just played oldies all night. This band had everyone from my husband's grandmother to our closest friends on the dance floor and excited all night long. They even did an encore when everyone asked for one! There were a couple hiccups with following timeline and the recorded song my fiance and I walked into the reception to, but honestly only the groom and I noticed (nothing the guests would have ever noticed). I for sure wouldn't think twice about hiring them for your wedding if you want everyone to be on the dance floor a... Read more
