  • Southern City Lights were by far the most professional and responsive group out of all vendors at our wedding. They didn't just provide a great show throughout the reception, they also communicated throughout the process and put us both at ease when it came to the entertainment part of the night. Our guests still talk about the band! I strongly encourage anyone looking for a great band to reach out to David and Southern City Lights, you will not regret it!

    Hey Josh, Thank you so much! That really means a lot to us. We've talked about your wedding several times since as well. For us, it was truly one of the best we have played. There was just such a nice atmosphere that allowed the night to really come to life naturally. I sincerely enjoyed meeting everyone and for the opportunity to play a small part of that amazing day! I wish y'all a Happy "First" Thanksgiving as a married couple and many more indeed! Very Sincerely, David Winkles.

  • If you want to have THE BEST TIME at your wedding, Southern City Lights is your band!!! Our dance floor was packed for the entire reception, everyone had a blast and wanted to know where we found David and his band! Being a musician, I was thoroughly impressed by their sound and their ability to sound consistently great in every different genre they played (not an easy feat!). David was very kind and responsive as we went over plans for the big picture down to all the important, little details. Despite the fact that my husband's and my song was not in their repertoire, they took the time to learn it and totally rocked it, which officially made the night for us, it was absolutely wonderful.

  • David Winkles was very professional in all aspects of working with us to schedule performances for our Friday night Welcome Party and Saturday evening Wedding. I can not explain the delight of having David perform solo at our outdoor Welcome Party where he entertained everyone during the dinner and afterwards. The next evening, he and his band were set up in the wedding pavilion where they played before and after the ceremony. Then they really rocked out and got everyone up and dancing for the rest of the evening! This made our wedding so special and fun that we can't thank them enough. From the ease of scheduling the band to coordinating our playlist and then to the final note, Southern City Lights was the perfect band for our wedding and will be for yours as well. Thank you, David & Southern City Lights!

  • Southern City Lights Band was right on target for our wedding. Communication was easy, always responsive and David helped us create a timeline to fit our plans for the evening. The band was engaging and fun for everyone. Their music and performance was exactly what we wanted. They also assisted another fire performer by pulling out a mobile speaker and hooking her music up for her show. Truly a great decision on our part to hire Southern City Lights for our daughter’s wedding reception.

  • BEST BAND EVER! They made our wedding one big party and played exactly the kind of music we loved! DEFINITELY will use them again hopefully in the future! 100/100 recommend. If you don’t have Southern City Lights to play at your wedding or special event you aren’t doing it right!

  • My guests are still complimenting us on the band a month after our wedding. They had an amazing time rocking out to them all night! They can play any genre you need and they performed our ceremony too. It was beautiful!

  • Southern City Lights was the BEST wedding band! The most important characteristic I valued in all of my vendors was communication and David Winkles was a great communicator! I think only ten minutes must have gone by from when I inquired about their availability and when I got a response! He was always so fast to respond to emails, dumb questions, texts, and calls! Other bands we had talked with charged extra fees for emceeing the wedding (literally just for saying “here’s the first dance, now there’s cake cutting, let’s throw the bouquet, it’s last call”), for DJing between breaks, for special requests, for providing sound for the ceremony.. David so eagerly helped us do all of this at no extra cost! We had Southern City Lights do our ceremony music (guitar and violin) and reception (we got the 5 piece band) and it was amazing! The ceremony music was the perfect, volume, was clear, and was exactly what I had hoped! We asked David and the violinist to learn “let it... Read more

  • My husband and I could not speak more highly of David and his team! From the very beginning, he was on the ball and attentive to our style and song preference. He helped us plan a detailed outline of the music and made the time to do a run-through over the phone before the big day as well. He even changed up ALL the words to the Mother/Son first dance to accommodate us! We used only three band pieces but they made it sound like so much more, I can't even imagine how great their full set would be! David also played instrumental for our ceremony and learned all new songs to play while we walked down the aisle! Our friends and family had the BEST time and I've already gotten so many requests for his contact information from our guests! You can't go wrong with Southern City Lights!

  • Absolutely amazing!! We were so happy with Southern City Lights and would choose them again a million times. They kept everyone on the dance floor and always chose the perfect song to fit the mood. They can play an incredible variety of songs, and if they don't know it, they will attempt to learn it for you! My husband and I wanted a song that wasn't on their normal list. They took the time to learn it, and it sounded perfect. We wanted a live band and we are so happy with our decision. Our guest couldn't get over how wonderful they were, and neither could we! Not to mention, we had to change our wedding date several time (my husband is in the Army) and they were so amazing with working with us and our coordinator. Hands down would recommend for any event!!

    Thank you so much Caitlin! We truly enjoyed being a part of your special day. Your wedding was absolutely beautiful and your friends and family were so much fun. Your father’s speech was one of our favorite parts. So genuinely original. We hope you do choose us again in the future for another special event. We would be delighted. Thank you again and we wish you both the very best!

  • Absolutely incredible! This band made my wedding- so many guests commented on how fabulous they were! David was wonderful to work with- learned any and every song I wanted played that they didn’t know (which wasn’t many) and he even played acoustic and sang in the woods for my woodland wedding during the ceremony- which I hear brought many to tears. Couldn’t have gotten a better band and I’m so thrilled to be able to recommend them wholeheartedly!

    Megan, I would literally play your wedding wedding again next week! Too many genuinely special moments to count. Weddings like yours are a musician’s dream! From the intimate ceremony in the woods with nothing but an acoustic guitar, to rocking out with y’all and all of your amazing guests at the reception. Your wedding truly encompassed the word “perfect”. Please keep us in mind for any event you may have in the future. We wish you all the very best!

  • Hire this band for your next event! David was wonderful to work with - very flexible with all the details. They have a huge song list to choose from and played great selections during dinner and then kept everyone dancing for hours. I highly recommend adding the saxophone! They made our daughter’s wedding extra special!

    Thank you so much Anita! One of my favorite things about doing what we do is working closely with our clients ahead of time to not just get every detail perfectly planned, but to build a relationship and fully understand the vision and personality of the wedding. We would be thrilled to work with you again and be a part of any event you may have in the future! Your family was also super sweet and it was truly a pleasure to be in their company. I wish you all blessings. Thanks again!

  • I had a somewhat unique request for my reception music, as the reception was in a church with some musical restrictions I knew I was going to forego dancing but still want live, elegant, jazzy, music without a vocalist except for maybe one song for us to enter to, and no opinion or idea on what types of musicians I needed. Luckily I stumbled accross Southen City Lights on The Knot, contacted David, and despite my somewhat odd request, were able to surpass all my expectations. He guided me through what type and how many musicians I probably needed, sent me a song list prior to the event, and I had multiple guests tell me how wonderful the reception music was. Totally recommended!
