  • We saw the Jon Bates Band perform at our friends' wedding in Vermont a number of years ago. My now-husband and I knew (before we were even engaged!) that we wanted these guys to play our wedding, should we get to that point together. Fortunately, they travel all over and were happy to come to Delaware for our 10/5/2019 wedding. Communication was smooth throughout the entire process, and they were completely open to working with us on our song list and catering to what we really love most. Their rendition of our first dance song was spot-on to what we hoped it would be. They played a consistently strong set all night and had everyone - and I mean everyone! - up and dancing. I can honestly say that it could not have gone better, nor could we have enjoyed it more. I highly recommend this group of talented musicians.

  • Incredibly talented, wonderful band! Everyone agreed they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen. We only had 46 guests and they were fantastic, getting every single person dancing and singing along, sure they would be just as amazing with hundreds of guests - we felt so lucky to have them as a huge part of our big day. Also so lovely to work with, and played every one of our requests! Thank you!

  • Hiring the Jon Bates band was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding day. Jon and the rest of the band put SO much love and heart into each and every song. They kept our guests dancing all night long. Jon met with us before the big day to make sure that they would give us everything we wanted. They did that and More. We even asked for them to learn a few special songs and again. They were quick to make sure that they knew every song we wanted played. The best thing was that we asked Jon and the band to learn a special edited version of a song for my Father / Daughter dance. They did an INCREDIBLE job. The way they made the song their own made that moment even more special for us. If you are looking for a wedding band that will do more then just, Play the music. Then you have found them.

  • Jon Bates Band are a blast, they were professional, on time, great performers, and did a great job turning my wedding into a dance party for the whole night. I gave them songs to learn and they nailed it all with a fluid performance that kept people dancing and having a good time. Anyone getting married in the Tri-State area, get this band!

  • The Jon Bates Band was incredible - super responsive and easy to work with leading up to our wedding, and then amazing on the day. We still have people commenting on how great the band was almost 9 months later !

  • The Jon Bates Band was hands down one of our FAVORITE parts of our wedding day. From the very beginning of the process, they were so easy to work with, so friendly and we were excited to have them as a part of our day. They were able to play such a wide variety of music which made the night even more fun (oldies to modern music). They came with so much energy and passion and you can truly tell how much they love their jobs. Lastly, they were so accommodating and made some last minute adjustments and played a special dance song for my grandmother and me. A couple of months have passed since the wedding, but my wife and I still have such great memories of the Jon Bates Band and would highly recommend them to anyone considering them. We are big fans! Thanks again for helping make our day so special!

  • Simply put, The Jon Bates band is the most talented group of artists imaginable. One of the most memorable parts of my wedding was dancing the night away with all my friends and family. Their energy is AMAZING and they had even the most reserved guests on the dance floor. They kept the party going all night! We picked various types of music to satisfy our eclectic guest list and they nailed every single song. I was overwhelmed by their talent and professionalism. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish and surpassed all of our expectations . To this day, my husband and I get compliments about our choice in wedding band and they are all so well deserved. BOOK THIS BAND!!!!

  • I want to take a moment to thank Jon Bates and the Band for an incredible performance! As musicians, it was important for me and my husband to have a live band for our wedding, and The Jon Bates Band met every expectation, and more! I had first heard them perform at my sisters wedding a few years ago, so after booking my wedding date I reached out to Jon immediately. From our first conversation he was friendly, professional, and accommodating of all of our requests. The wedding was a hit, and the dance floor was packed all night long. We received so many compliments on the bands performance and were even told that their versions of every song were “as good as the originals, if not better!” I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a classy band at a fair price. Jon, thank you for taking the stress out of wedding planning, and for making our wedding day perfect!

  • After a long search for a lively and affordable band, we came across the Jon Bates band for our wedding last summer. I was a little nervous about hiring people I had never met before or seen permor, however from our first phone call with Jon, I knew that they were a serious band that liked to have people party and get on the dance floor. And that was exactly what they did. People danced all night long and we kept getting comments about how wonderful the music was. They were very flexible with what we wanted to hear and definitely read the room for song choices. Thank you so much!

  • Jon Bates Band was fantastic at my wedding. Jon and his band knew what we wanted to hear and were excellent the day of. They have strong relationships on Martha's Vineyard that made it easy logistically. All of my wedding guests (some of who were professional musicians) raved about the Jon Bates Band. They were fantastic and great to work with!

  • Hiring the Jon Bates Band for our wedding was the best decision that we could have made. My husband and I love dancing and wanted our wedding to feel like one continuous dance party. Jon Bates Band worked closely with us to make sure that happened by helping us schedule the flow of the night, integrating songs that we wanted into their playlist, selecting songs that all generations enjoyed, and sticking to ones that would keep people from wanting to sit down! Our dance floor was packed for the ENTIRE night with people from 16 to 90 years old. We heard comments from our guests and workers at our venue that they had never seen so many guests up and dancing for the whole night. The band is incredibly talented - their sound is wonderful, they have many pieces available, and they can play a wide range of music types. They made our night SO much fun and memorable! They are a must-have!

  • Jon and the group are terrific! The planning and execution process was so easy and so flexible, rather than other music vendors we spoke with who very much wanted to execute "their way". Most importantly, their music is phenomenal, we had a packed dance floor, and have continued to receive compliments in the months since about how awesome they were! If you want terrific music, professional staff, who don't nickel and dime and make you feel inexperienced, book with Jon Bates Band!!

  • The Jon Bates Band rocked my wedding!! The variety of music they played and enthusiasm had all of our guests dancing the entire evening. Not only were they amazing during the reception, but the guitarist was spot on for our ceremony music - a ceremony that took place outside, at the top of a mountain. He even rode the chairlift up and back just as our guests did. Our wedding took place in rural New Hampshire and the band booked themselves an AirBNB so they could stay the night. When their first BNB had to cancel, Jon contacted us and told us that no matter what they'd be there. Luckily they were able to find a different place to stay and all went smoothly. I've now seen the Jon Bates Band perform at two weddings (they performed on Martha's Vineyard for my best friend's wedding several years ago) and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a group that will keep your crowd dancing!

  • My wife and I first heard The Jon Bates Band a year before we got engaged when they played my sister's wedding. When we were planning our own wedding, we thought we had a slim-to-none chance of finding a band as good - and we were right. After researching what felt like a hundred bands, we decided to reach out to The Jon Bates Band on the off chance that they would be able to travel to a different state for our wedding. When we found out they were available, there was no question that they were the band for us. What stands out about The Jon Bates Band? Musically speaking, they are hands down the highest energy wedding band I've ever seen perform. These musicians are working hard every minute they're on stage, and the guests at our wedding (and my sister's) responded by hitting the dance floor in force. The band members are not only very talented individually, but they are tight as a group - a rare thing in a wedding band (as anyone who's sat through a dozen YouTube audition videos c... Read more
