  • My husband and I chose The Dapper Gents as our wedding band because of the flexibility of their offering. We knew we wanted a live band because we are pretty big music fans but we also appreciated that some wedding guests just like to dance to pop music. Jake and the Dapper Gents allowed us to have live ceremony music, cocktail hour appropriate music, live band music sets and DJ sets within the reception as a bit of a one stop shop. Jake also learned a custom mash up of Greensky Bluegrass which was amazing. The value of this band is tremendous, we had lots of wedding guests comment on how great they are and they were really a treat. Very talented, very fun over all awesome band!

  • My husband and I picked to have Danny and Jake at our wedding after falling in love with them listening them play regularly in Portland when we first moved here. We hired the Dapper Duo, Danny and Jake to play the music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and then they DJ'd our reception. They did a great job and everyone loved the music all night long. It was so special to have them play an acoustic version of the ceremony music as well as our first dance, and then Jake had the crowd dancing from the time the reception started until the final song. We would highly recommend them as your wedding band!

  • The Dapper Gents are so talented and were perfect for our backyard wedding. Guests are still talking about how much they loved them and how fitting they were with our wedding vibe. They were also VERY accommodating and flexible...I am not a great planner and changed the timeline of our night at least 5 times, and every time Jake just said 'Sure! All manageable!'...They even covered Halo by Beyonce for us (which was a pretty last minute request). Hands down would hire them again.

  • Dapper Gents MADE our wedding. We knew we loved them from attending their shows at Bullfeeney’s, but it was so fun to watch how much our guests loved them. By the end of the night, it felt like a concert and the crowd was chanting for an encore (which the Dap Gents kindly obliged until we actually needed to get people on the shuttles). Do not hesitate to book them! Your guests of all ages will be dancing all night. They also learned by father/daughter dance request with a relatively short turnaround time and did an amazing job. 10 out of 10.

  • We couldn’t imagine our wedding day without The Dapper Gents. We have seen Danny and Jake (The Duo) play in Portland, ME many times, and have always loved their style. When we heard the full band play this fall, we knew they were it! Our guests are still talking about how amazing they were. These guys made the party. We are so happy that they agreed to travel to the middle of nowhere western MA to play at our wedding. Only thing we could have asked for was a longer night! Jake was very professional and great to communicate with throughout the entire planning process. We were so happy with our experience with The Dapper Gents, and can’t recommend them enough! Jake kept us on schedule and the night went seamlessly. He was very helpful with our musical choices, and even learned our first dance song last minute and killed it! Thank you so much for making our day so special!

  • The Dapper Gents were a great addition to the wedding. The acoustic duo during the ceremony and cocktail hour was amazing , and the whole band did a great job during the reception. Lots of guests commented during the wedding and after on how great the music was. Shoutout to Danny crushing Hotel California on the Cello! Jake was great to work with and was always professional. He went out of his way to accommodate any of our needs. He kept the whole experience leading up to the wedding (and during the wedding) stress-free.

  • So wonderful!!! Their presence truly helped set an amazing vibe for the wedding. It is just something about your music that just helps take emotions to another level and makes you feel like you are in this tiny bubble of emotion. Everyone absolutely loved you and said you couldn't have been more perfect throughout the entire time. You guys were so easy to work with and fIexible with our setup. Can't imagine a ceremony or cocktail hour without you playing!! Thank you so much!! Tasha and Craig Binette

  • The Dapper Gents (Danny and Jake) played our wedding and they were a major hit!!! I knew live music was a must for our wedding, but wasn't sure they'd be able to travel all the way to Madison,ME for our small wedding... But they were more than willing and super flexible with song choices and schedules for the big day. I thoroughly enjoyed having such a unique duo play the wedding and it made for an amazing wedding day. Thank you Danny and Jake!!

  • My wife and I hired the Dapper Gents to play our wedding in Searsport, ME. They were well worth the money. Our guests loved the band and danced to every song. They kept the night lively and exciting. I would highly recommend them to anyone!

  • I can’t recommend the Dapper Gents enough! They helped make our wedding day absolutely perfect! They were a joy to work with and took care of everything from music to microphones. The band was amazing and Jake was an excellent emcee throughout the evening. My only worry was how the guests would react to our choice since they have very different musical tastes. Looking back, I don’t know why I ever worried. Our guests loved it and were talking about the Dapper Gents all weekend!

  • The Dapper Gents were a pleasure to work with and made our wedding day so special. We especially loved their versions of songs we chose for dances. All our guests loved their music and we were on our feet dancing all night! Couldn't have asked for a better band to work with, their flexibility and communication was excellent. Thank you!!

  • Do you want your guests to talk about your music? Because the Dapper Gents do just that. Our wedding was hot. The gents rocked it in the 90 degree barn with outdoor speakers. Most of the comments were how good the band was. They are modern and a fantastic addition to any wedding. Danny will impress you right away for his prowess on the chello. Thanks guys, Dan

  • The Dapper Gents had a great setlist for playing at the wedding ceremony and cocktail party. However, when we asked them to learn two more songs, they agreed right away. Easy to work with and very talented....

  • Jake and the Dapper Gents completely killed it at our farm wedding! It was such a fun party, and the Dapper Gents were a big part of that. First, they accompanied our ceremony perfectly. Then, Jake acted as MC for dinner during the reception and was so good--all the speeches, announcements and the audibles that happen at a wedding went off smoothly. Lastly, they put on an awesome show in the barn. They seriously rocked, everyone partied super hard, and so many of our friends commented how much they loved the band. We can't wait to seeing the Dapper Gents next time we're in Portland!
