  • 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!

  • 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 hired Sam Hill to help us find the perfect wedding band, and did they deliver! We hired Downtown Collective that has a great sound and personality that kept the dance floor packed all night. They learned a few extra special songs (for a small fee) and took great care to be able to practice and pronounce our wedding party's names in order to announce them. Amazing band!

  • When we first started planning our reception, we said we wanted a party. Lucky Pocket no doubt delivered!!! People young and old were out on the dance floor all night long. I have had several people tell me they were one of the best bands that they've ever seen. I was also told by my venue that they've never seen so many people stay for the entire reception. I think this is entirely because Lucky Pocket was way too much fun to leave early! Lucky Pocket arrived on time, were professional and courteous, and even picked out great songs to play during their breaks so that the party just continued on! I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Lucky Pocket for making my wedding day so exciting and fun! I hope to see y'all play again in the future!

  • Our families were trying to convince us to do our own music, or hire a DJ to save money but I had been perusing bands and just kept coming back to The Finns. We were soo soo happy that we booked them. They got both of our parents up and dancing as well as our niece and nephew. They learned our first dance song, Leon Bridges, "Beyond," perfectly. We wish the night could have gone on forever. Thank you so much to Sam Hill and The Finns for helping to make our night so perfect. If you are debating about a band, JUST DO IT! It was so worth it, we are still getting compliments about how much fun they were and how good they were. Working with Sam Hill was also great-- they helped narrow down the options for our budget and were very responsive when we had questions.

    Thank YOU Amanda! We are so happy to hear you all had a great time with The Finns! :) Congrats again!

  • 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. Based on your rating though, it looks like you had some concerns where your expectations weren’t fully met. 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. Thank you again, and look forward to hearing from you.

  • We got in contact with Sam Hill entertainment through a recommendation from our photographer, and they were extremely helpful in recommending bands to us within our price range. We chose the Retreat, and we loved having them at our wedding! First, communication with the band (as well as with Sam Hill entertainment) was easy and prompt. The band was also really accommodating—they even learned a new song for the father-daughter dance, and they played for our first dance song and the mother-son dance as well. They put together a really good mix of music, and played whatever songs we had requested as well. People danced the whole time they played (four hours plus breaks during a six hour reception!) right up until the end, so you know it was a good party. We got a lot of compliments about how fun the wedding was, and I know the band played a huge part in that.

  • Sam Hill provided us with a list of band options and ultimately helped us find a great band called Horizon who made the night truly unforgettable. We thank Sam Hill for working with us to ensure we had the music to go with our special day.
