  • This band is incredible! It cannot be emphasized enough, as you will read with other reviews, this band MAKES the party. They are highly professional and trained musicians, and at the same time they know how to get down and have a great time! Their enthusiasm was infectious and had everyone on the dance floor all night, which is just what I was hoping for! We didn’t get to see them live before hiring them like many other reviewers, but the videos on their website are helpful and speaking with Mary, the band’s leader instilled a level of confidence that they can handle just about anything! Seriously the videos on their website don’t do it justice, they ROCKED the house. They put together a perfect mix of classic and new songs that everyone loved. SO many of my guests were coming up to us throughout the night saying “WHERE did you find this band??!!!” We also heard from a lot of people that it was the best wedding they’ve been to in awhile or EVER which is pretty much...

  • Rare Blend is single handedly responsible for the amazing time I had at my wedding. A lot of things went wrong for us that day--our venue was outdoors and not properly heated, guests were freezing, we had 2 power outages, event staff were disorganized and clueless and I was frantic and concerned and not having a good time UNTIL Rare Blend took the stage. They turned it all around. Mary and her band were PROS. They played through a 5 min. power outage with an incredible drum solo, the guitarist had an amazing moment soloing and rocking out with my husband (who was on air guitar haha), the lead vocalist brought down the house SEVERAL TIMES. Every single guest danced at least once, many of us choosing to be out on the dance floor the entire night. And I truly appreciated that they brought their own photographer. It was so cold that I had a sweater on for much of my wedding. The only time my dress was visible was when I was dancing, so I can not WAIT to see photos taken on the dance floor.... Read more

  • Rare Blend was the absolute best choice of our wedding! Mary worked with me in the months leading up to the big day in order to ensure that the night was going to go exactly as I pictured. We worked out the timeline, song choices, and she even worked with the reception venue to make sure everyone was on the same page. On the day of my mind was so much more preoccupied than I'd have ever imagined, and I don't know how anything would have gotten started/done without Mary. She organized the wedding party entrance, got the toasts going, told the venue we were ready to start cake cutting, and so much more. I would say Mary alone is a great asset on your wedding day! But onto the music which is what's really important. I'll start by saying I have never seen a dance floor more full at a wedding. There was never a time throughout the evening that the whole floor wasn't crowded. Even when the band took their breaks, the prerecorded song choices kept everyone on the floor. They played every t... Read more

  • I can't possibly say enough amazing things about Rare Blend Band that would fully articulate how great they are. Rare Blend Band was one of the first things we booked for our wedding, and we are so glad we did. Even before the wedding day, I was in frequent contact with Mary, the band leader, and she not only helped me pick out the music for the night, but she helped with a lot of the planning for the flow of the reception. These guys are wedding experts and can answer so many of your questions. They were completely self-sufficient the day of and I didn't have to worry for a single second about their setup or logistics. From the time we sat down for dinner, guests were already making comments about how great the band was - one of my guests even came up to me during dinner and said "I feel like I'm at the President's Ball!" The dance floor was full all night and my guests had an amazing time. So many people told us it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and that the music wa... Read more

  • Booking Rare Blend for my wedding reception was the BEST decision I could have ever made! I was initially hesitant about the cost but now that my wedding has passed I have no regrets and am 100% happy with my decision to have booked Rare Blend. The band was an ABSOLUTE HIT and had everyone raving about their performance. The band targeted every generation and the dance floor was packed the entire night. Mary, the band’s coordinator was impressive. She is extremely professional, organized, prompt and pleasant in conversation. She is very experienced with weddings and offers many suggestions for the entertainment as well as other reception details. My wedding reception was absolutely perfect and I owe that to Mary. She TRULY cares about your wedding day and works with you to help you plan the wedding of your dreams.

  • From my first email to the last song of the night, my experience with Rare Blend was flawless! I felt like my wedding was as important to the leader, Mary Davis, as it was to me. I wanted to include some special presentations into the reception—Mary worked with me to make them happen. Then there was the music! The band was extraordinary, absolutely unreal! It’s obvious that this band has worked together for years—their sound is so tight! We loved their song choice, energy and ability to work the room. Everybody keeps telling us about how our wedding was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. Because of Rare Blend, it was the best wedding that I’VE ever been to! Bottom Line: This band knows how to throw a party!

  • Mary and the entire Rare Blend Band were beyond amazing to work with. From the moment I spoke with Mary, I knew that we were in really good hands, and that we were in for more than just your typical band. To start, Mary really is an incredibly organized person who dives in much deeper than helping you pick out your wedding music. She also acted as one of my coordinators, and went above and beyond to ensure all the aspects of our big day were planned out absolutely perfectly, even working with my hired coordinators and my venue on a regular basis. This made for an absolutely seamless event. The entire band was full of incredible musicians who were able to play an extremely diverse range of music to keep our guests on their toes (and feet!) the entire evening. We could hardly get them off the dance floor for our sparkler send off at the end of the evening! Every single announcement was extremely well timed and very professional. To top off the band's greatness, Mary took tons of photos ... Read more

  • My husband and I recently got married on June 13th. I had found this band on the Knot and saw that their ratings were high. Curious, I sent their website to my husband and we checked them out together. We loved their energy and excitement. So, we contacted them. Mary was so friendly and outgoing. We loved that she wanted to get to know my husband and I personally. She made it a fun conversation. We ended up booking them, not having heard them live. Just from their website. On the day of our wedding, they rocked it out. They played all sorts of songs to entertain our guests while they ate, talked and hung out. Once the reception really got started, they got the room going. The music was phenomenal! The horns were great, the drums, keys, guitar, vocals. Everything was fantastic! Everyone had so much fun! When my husband and I went around to talk to our guests, they all raved about how great the band was, how they sounded awesome and how lively they were. They wanted to get their number f...

  • We contacted Rare Blend along with some others with some pretty specific requests. The band leader, Mary, was very accommodating and helpful through the process. With all of the other planing going on, Mary took the initiative to align things for our reception. From the first phone call we felt like we were in good hands. Rare Blend facilitated the MC responsibilities and performed live with a 9 piece band for our wedding. Some may think that is a lot, but honestly the investment takes your reception to a different level. You simply do not find many wedding receptions with that quality of entertainment and a DJ simply can't match what a high quality live band can do. On our wedding day, Rare Blend knocked it out of the park. As a musician myself, I can tell you the quality of music and vocals is exceptional. Everyone from our wedding raved about their performance. Some said they have never heard a better band in this type of setting. Some said when they walked in for dinner that ... Read more

  • We echo all of the positive comments about Rare Blend! From the start, Mary was professional to deal with and took the initiative early to coordinate with our venue. She is an excellent wedding planner and from the time we showed up at the cocktail hour until the end of the event, everything ran smoothly and we were glad that Mary had worked with us on a schedule ahead of time. As for the music itself, Rare Blend kept our dance floor full with a great mix of music that kept all generations out there. We would recommend Rare Blend to anyone looking for a top notch wedding band.

  • OMG! This band is amazing! Simply put they are the ABSOLUTE BEST! My husband and I used Rare Blend for our wedding in April. We had a jazz trio play for cocktails and dinner. Then their band--we picked the one with 10 people--got on the stage and the party took off! It was so exciting! People keep telling us that we had the best wedding they've ever been at and how much they loved the band. I am grateful to Rare Blend and their leader, Mary, for listening to what we wanted and making our wedding reception totally perfect!

  • My wedding reception was totally perfect, mostly due to Mary Davis and Rare Blend! I’ve heard the band on a number of occasions—at my sister’s wedding and at my cousin’s wedding—and they are always the highlight of the night! Everyone is still talking about their exceptional performance at my wedding. The energy they brought to the dance floor was amazing; the timing of the reception and the pacing of the music was masterful; the variety and song selection was perfect for our multi-generational crowd; and the musical performance was absolutely unbelievable. I had heard that Mary was an expert wedding planner, but that is an understatement. She’s like a band manager and a wedding planner all in one. She was my go-to person during the whole planning process. Whenever I had a question about the wedding, I could send her an email and know that she would get back to me almost instantly. I have one more sister to get married. She doesn’t have a boyfriend right now, but sh... Read more

  • We had Rare Blend play for our wedding reception. It was the best choice we made for our wedding. Mary was VERY helpful. She answered all questions and gave great suggestions for our special day. Going into this, we did not really know what the timing should be for the reception, Mary helped us with this and the night went more than smoothly. She took photos and share all of them right away, which was really nice to see right after the wedding. The band sounded GREAT. Guests were raving about the band and how wonderful they were, the dance floor was in constant movement. I still have many guests speaking highly of the band. We even had a few song requests and the band learned new material for us. They were very accommodating and very professional. This is a decision that you can easily make and not have any regrets. Just choose them and don't look back. It will be the best choice you make.

  • Wow what a band what a night. My son did not want a live band but preferred a DJ. Boy am I glad he changed his mind. This band was outstanding, from the ceremony music, to the dinner music and then on to the dancing music. They were the talk of the night. Mary made sure ever detail was perfect and it showed throughout the whole night. The dance floor was never empty. I will never forget this band, they made my sons wedding perfect. Thank you Rare Blend.
