What do our client's think?

“After calling several bands, I received several responses from mostly receptionists at “entertainment companies” who immediately rattled off their hourly prices, contract items, number of songs we could request, etc.”

When GFR got back to me, the first thing they asked was about us – our relationship, our story, our passions, interests, careers. They got to know us, our vision, and put together an event for us – one price, no extras.

“What an amazing band with incredibly talented musicians. We used Great Family Reunion’s Por La Paz band for our ceremony and the full band for our reception and they COMPLETELY crushed it.

If you’re considering hiring them, they are absolutely the best in the business. I could not recommend them more!”

“There really aren’t enough superlatives to accurately review this group – as musicians, lighting/sound engineers, emcees, event planners, and individuals. The process leading up to the wedding was perfect. They asked the right questions, listened, made expert recommendations; ultimately, planned and coordinated a flawless event, which our guests are still ranting and raving about over a month later.”

“We have SO much love for this band. We got in contact with them about 1.5 years before the wedding, and they were responsive and helpful through the whole time. They were happy to play pretty much any of the music i requested, and their wedding night reception set list was FREAKIN FIRE.

Anything we needed? They did it, with no complaints. They even voluntarily took video of my serenade and my dads speech, since we didnt have a videographer. So so thankful for this amazing vendor that provided NO stress to me at all, i could trust them with my whole wedding day!
