  • It didn’t take me long to find Sam Hill Entertainment and choose Affirmative Groove for our wedding band. First, the Sam Hill website was extremely to use and broke down all of their bands and what they offered. It was also easy to find clips of the band performing. Overall we decided to go with Affirmative Groove because of their sound and that there was no detectable auto-tuning. The process of booking the band, making payments, and communicating was a simple as it could get short of doing everything in person. On the day of our wedding Affirmative Groove provided an 8 piece live band for the reception and a keyboard accompaniment during the cocktail hour. We would first like to compliment the band on their abilities and sound, we couldn’t have asked for a better band to share in our celebration. They sang our first dance song ‘At Last’ by Etta James flawlessly as well as the song chosen for the father/daughter dance ‘My Girl’ by the Temptations. While we were not... Read more

  • Every girl says they always have imagined their big day. Well for me, I only could picture having navy blue as my color and live music. Sam Hill Entertainment made the search process easy, since they asked my budget, what type of music I wanted, and then provided me a list of bands that were 1) available for my date, 2) within my price range, and 3) my style! With this, I was led to E3 and could not have been happier with their performance. By the end of the wedding, I had 20+ guests come up to me to ask how to hire them. Highly recommend E3 and Sam Hill Entertainment for your wedding!

  • We had the privilege of having Eight Past Midnight play at our wedding on New Year's Eve of 2019. As a wedding photographer, I had heard them at a wedding I was photographing and new immediately I had to have them at my wedding one day. They blew it out of the water and had our guests raving for days!

  • My husband and I knew we wanted a live band at our wedding from the beginning. We decided to book the Radio Sparks with Sam Hill and we could not have had a better band! They were amazing. They answered our every request, played their hearts out, wore glow-sticks, and successfully got and kept our crowd out on the dance floor. We did not have one single "I wish" with The Radio Sparks and for that we are forever grateful! From the older generation, to our newer family members, EVERYONE enjoyed the music! We are so so happy we booked them!

  • 10 spot was absolutely incredible! We had read so many great reviews on them but had never seen them live so weren't sure what to expect. Well all of the reviews were SPOT ON. We got SO many compliments after the wedding about how amazing the band was. They were so accommodating with our song choices and using our own iPod with selected songs during their short breaks. We even requested no slow songs after a certain time but when we requested they do one for my Grandpa they tuned one up, no problem at all. One of my bridesmaids already has them booked for her upcoming wedding so we are excited to be able to see them again!

  • Soul Expressions knocked it out of the park at our wedding! They did a wonderful job at performing our song requests for first dance. We received many compliments on the band, their music, personality, and engagement with the guests. We also appreciate Sam Hill handling the communications ahead of time.

  • We used Sam Hill Entertainment at the recommendation of a friend to find our wedding band. From the beginning, they were incredibly helpful and accommodating. We provided information on our wedding date, location, budget, and music taste and Mike sent us a list of bands that fit our needs. We were able to listen to their song clips online, see videos of them perform, and browse their complete song list. We chose the Adrian Duke Project and we couldn't have made a better decision. They kept all of our friends on the dance floor the entire night! The band was super responsive to email and our requests (even last minute changes) and did an awesome job learning a new song favorite. The sound quality was incredible. Everyone LOVED the band! We are so grateful we used Sam Hill to find them. They truly made the party!

  • We worked with Sam Hill Entertainment to book Gallatin Canyon for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. We love bluegrass music and wanted something a bit more unique for the ceremony and cocktails and Gallatin Canyon was absolutely amazing — I will never forget walking down the aisle to "When the Stars Go Blue". The band was super talented, professional, and responsive. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding and cannot recommend highly enough!

  • We couldn't have asked for a better band then Affirmative Groove and a better company then Sam Hill. Marrell and the rest of the band put on an INCREDIBLE performance and had our guests on their feet dancing all night! They had some choreographed moves which really elevated their performance and they looked and sounded great. Working with Affirmative Groove was so easy; the band was quick to respond to emails and played our first dance songs exactly as we wanted them. Our guests were blown away by the band and are is asking where and how we found Affirmative Groove. Needless to say, we are singing Sam Hill Entertainment and Affirmative Groove's praises! Thank you for making this the wedding of our dreams!

  • Hipshack was perfect for our intimate wedding. They took all of our requests and kept our wedding party dancing all night long. We would recommend them for any party, wedding, or event.

  • I've worked with SHE through weddings and events for years as a coordinator and they've always been great to work with and communicate with. For my own wedding the same was proven true. I really enjoyed working with the band and their booking agent, Andrew because they made the process so easy. They were so great leading up to and on the wedding day. If you're looking for a group to book your entertainment through, Sam Hill Entertainment is the way to go, they'll make the process so seamless for you!

  • We chose to book our wedding band through Sam Hill Entertainment and we are so glad that we decided to go with a band. Justin was great with helping us find the right one and within the amount we wanted to spend. He was also respectful of our busy schedule and allowed us all the time we needed to decide. Seven Til' Sunrise was the band we chose and they know how to entertain!!! They had us and all our guests dancing all evening long. Highly recommend this band!

    Hi Calissa, Thank you for your valuable feedback. We’re happy to hear that Justin helped you find a great band for your wedding and that overall you had a great time.

We and our bands pride ourselves on all of these qualities WeddingWire has listed, and we’re so sorry to find out we didn’t make all high marks in your book. We invite you to please reach out to your Booking Manager ([email protected]/866-SAM-HILL x 107) so he can better understand and address your concerns.
