What do our clients think?

“Great Family Reunion absolutely ROCKED our wedding! We are big live music fans, and hiring a great band was top priority for us. There guys exceeded every expectation that we had. Everyone could not stop raving about how great they were. Bryan and his team were so accommodating to all of our requests, from specific songs for their strings trio to play for our ceremony, to wacky requests from my crazy Italian family for the reception. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars for flexibility. They really made the entire process from start to finish so easy and FUN. I’d recommend them to anybody looking for a band in a heartbeat. Best in the business.”

“GFR was absolutely amazing. They far surpassed any expectations we had and had the entire party dancing all night long. My grandma was even on the dance floor the whole time. There was never a moment when people weren’t dancing despite the competing sunset and views. We were SO impressed with each and every musician.

They had put together a smaller band for weddings during the pandemic and we were stunned at the enormous and energizing sound that came from these 5 artists. It was better than any 10 piece band I’ve heard and was the perfect match for our 85 person wedding. We could’ve had 300 people there and they would’ve had everyone going just the same.

GFR hit the nail on the head at every step in the process. During the planning process, calls with them got us hyped every time. We felt like they just got us and knew exactly what we were looking for. They crushed it with the vibes we wanted from ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception. It was perfection!

That was the best night of our lives and it wouldn’t have been the same without GFR!!! You guys are the best. I hope that we have another excuse someday to hire GFR again!!”

“An online review really can’t adequately express how incredible this band was to work with and have play at our wedding. From the beginning, they were personable and made every effort to get to know us and our music preferences so they could ensure the song list they put together would be exactly what we wanted to dance to. And we knew the band was going to play an awesome set at our actual wedding but they were just SO GOOD! The band has awesome energy and talent, and the dance floor was consistently packed. Our friends were sore the next day from dancing. We just really appreciated everything the band did to make the night SO FUN and special and we wish it had lasted 4 hours longer!”

“I do not even know where to start! Great Family Reunion was amazing from the start with the planning all the way until the actual event. They helped us decide on the best songs for us and the vibe we wanted for the event including the ceremony and reception. They were always available for quick questions and ideas along the way. I could not have asked for better support during the planning stages.

Even more important then that, they were ABSOLUTELY AMAZING on the day of! They nailed the ceremony and cocktail music and the reception was somehow even better. I cannot tell you how many people told us how great the band was and how much fun they had. People were on the dance floor all night and having the BEST time, this includes our older family members all the way down to the youngest guests in their 20’s. It was the perfect mix of oldies and more recent music to keep everyone engaged and the pipes on both vocalists were out of this world. If you are thinking about booking them, just do it. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding and we cannot thank them enough for making it such a special evening!”

“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.”

“Great Family Reunion made our wedding! The music was so amazing and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. The next day we heard so many compliments about the band and how much fun our guests had dancing. I would highly recommend GFR for your wedding or special event! Best band ever!!!!”

“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!
