DO IT!! Book this band. We are music lovers and the band for our wedding was one of the most important aspects - we spent a lot of time researching and we are SO happy that we booked GFR. Their performance was unbelievable and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. Prior to the wedding we filled out a questionnaire about the music we like/don't like and GFR put together a set-list that was literally tailor made for us - every song was amazing. This is not your typical wedding band, their performance was more like a badass concert - their chemistry with each other and unbelievable talent is so cool to watch. You will not be disappointed!
Wow!! Absolutely incredible band. Hands down stole the show at our wedding on 10/7/18. My husband and I were so thrilled with the song choices and quality of music from start to finish and our guests repeatedly said to us they felt like they attended a concert that night! Jordan was our main point of contact from the beginning and he just gets music, organization, performance and professionalism. We booked with them about a year out and worked closley via phone and Skype to put the finishing touches together a few months before. They have a large variety of songs they know and are also willing to learn anything new if desired. My father and I danced to Where The Stars Go Blue and the lead vocalist added a killer, soulful yet upbeat twist that had us both dancing and more relaxed than we ever imagined. The entire team at Great Family Reunion including Charlie and Bryan were all excellent but Jordan stands out and slayed on guitar all night! Please don’t make the mistake of missing out on the greatest wedding band you could ever dream of. The talent, energy and musical excellence is unparallel. My husband and I will always love our photos but any time we watch one of our wedding videos we cant believe how amazing the music was!! Thank you GFR, you guys are incredible!
If I had to choose the best thing about my wedding (aside from marrying the love of my life of course) it would be Great Family Reunion. The leader of this company, Jonathan (aka Skippy) was incredibly easy to work with and super flexible. They are a group of many professional musicians that play with touring bands. We had a couple conversations about the feel of the event and the type of the music we had in mind for the wedding. He selected which musicians he thought would be appropriate from his roster. Then all I had to do was send him a list of bands we liked. They came with all their own equipment, lighting and set up the sound for the ceremony. They also bring a sound guy with them to make sure everything is perfect, and it was. They slayed. Everyone tore up the dance floor and they even performed the best hora I have ever heard. They are not just a great wedding band, they are a great band, period. I would pay to go see a show. If I could describe their sound it would be summed up with hot hot fire!
I have to start by admitting that I spent a good three months researching bands for our wedding. With just a 10-month engagement, I spent roughly a third of my time searching for a legit band. After reviewing endless suggestions from friends, wedding planners, online testimonials, etc. I just wasn’t impressed with my findings. I knew exactly what I wanted; a REAL band (like the kind I’d drop cash to see at an intimate venue) that just happened to jam at weddings on the weekend. Everyone kept telling me I was living in a fantasy world and needed to be less picky. “It’s just a wedding band, they’re all the same.” I refused to believe that was true and I’m extremely proud to say that my persistence paid off. Great Family Reunion (The Family Band) was absolutely impeccable, to the point where this feedback likely won’t do them justice. Every guest was floored by their performance, asking how we were able to land such a talented band. There wasn’t an occupied chair in the room as we were all drawn to the dance floor for hours on end. Prior to the reception Por La Poz played during our ceremony, mastering a unique song I've dreamt of walking down the aisle to for years. I personally didn’t get to hear much since I was last down the aisle but the little glimpse I got was heavenly. Great Family Reunion (and Jonathan especially) was incredibly easy to work with, detailed oriented and executed the evening flawlessly. Rest assured, you will not regret this decision. Now, go ahead and book GFR so you can move on to selecting napkins, plates, and all the other things you don’t want to care about but secretly obsess over. P.S. You’re welcome for finding you the best band EVER. Thank you for making our wedding one for the books! Pierce & Sarahbeth Bush
