The Golden Band Wedding Band were an outstanding addition to my wedding! Our guests universally loved their music and the overall enthusiasm of their performance. The band graciously accommodated song requests and impressed us with their ability to cover several songs not normally thought of as bluegrass material. Overall, they were a tremendous value and an excellent addition to our party.
Thanks again GBWB & hats off for a job well done!

The band was amazing. They made our event incredibly special and their willingness to learn new songs was great. They were flexible in all respects, even when a rainshower required them to relocate to another area, and were friendly and cordial to everyone. I couldn't speak more highly of the band- they were such a great part of our party!

“Golden Band” played an amazing array of traditional and original Bluegrass music for the wedding. Great musicians who can adapt their music to the situation, and the beauty of live instruments and singing could never be replaced by a recording. Beyond this, the band is outstandingly talented. Before we knew it, people were dancing, and this continued through the evening. This band has recorded albums under another name, are highly appreciated, and I know that they will continue in their successes. David, their contact person is very reliable and we really could not recommend them more!

These guys were easy to work with and provided great entertainment that coincided with the vibe we were going for at my garden wedding. I highly recommend them for your event.

We were planning long-distance, and David was very easy to talk to by email! On the day of, there was a huge (3+ hour) traffic jam that the band (and most of our guests!) were stuck in, but they showed up as soon as possible and played two awesome sets. Our guests danced THE WHOLE TIME and I'm sure would have danced on til morning if the venue had allowed it! The band sounded great, and played a great variety of traditional songs (that my bluegrass-playing dad loved) and bluegrassed-up modern songs (that my friends jammed out to).

I definitely recommend David and the Golden Band! We initially booked them for the reception, but late in the game we had the chance to book a band we'd known much longer, and asked if we could revise our contract to the ceremony and cocktail hour only. David worked with us and was kind and professional through the process. He suggested beautiful music for the processional and recessional (we went with "Ashokan Farewell" and "Cherokee Shuffle") and on the day itself, they lent us their mic for the ceremony, were super reliable, and sounded great. They fit the party perfectly.

Hiring David and his Golden Band Wedding Band was hands-down one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. The whole thing was surprisingly easy - just a few emails and phone calls and we were all set. David sent some music samples, which we loved and knew would be perfect for our rustic lakeside ceremony and reception.
One of the things that really made our experience working with David exceptional was his flexibility. He was totally flexible on the start time, and understanding of our needs for the whole production. Fees for extra time were very reasonable, and so we asked them to extend the time to include some ceremony music and dinner music. We're so glad we made that decision, and honestly he could have charged twice as much as he did.
As with all weddings, some things just didn't go according to plan. For us - the tent heater was broken and dinner wasn't ready on time. Thankfully, the musical entertainment from Golden Band Wedding Band put our guests at ease - and with the help of an open bar, a good time was had by all. Everyone kept telling us how great the band was. Literally everyone. They were so impressed, and it was such a great way to kick off a memorable party.
As I was planning my wedding, I think the things that were most important to me were reliability, taste/style, and value. This band has them all. Trust me - you'll be thankful you hired this band. Your guests will be even more thankful.
"Great group of people - very talented! Contributed so much to the wedding. Unfortunately we hired them for too short a time - party just gearing up when they left. Had many comments on how wonderful they were. Highly recommend"
"The members of Golden Wedding Band were easy to work with and provided two hours of fantastic music that guests enjoyed listening to. They took direction well and were flexible with their set up."

“The Golden Wedding Band were a highlight of our wedding, both for ourselves and our guests. Awesome song selection for cocktail hour and really great during dinner and the reception, with a broad selection of tunes and great renditions of our requests. Professional throughout. When I speak with our guests now, 3 months later, they still mention the Band. Will definitely hire them for my next wedding…oh wait… I’ll find some excuse to cross their paths in the future!”
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding! Your music really added a lot of charm and character to our day! The music was beautiful and a lot of fun as well! Your group was very professional and self directed, and performed perfectly in time with the ceremony. Thanks again!
The Golden Band Wedding Band was the highlight of George and Cindy’s wedding! Everyone was thoroughly delighted by their talent and professionalism. When part of the ceremony didn’t go quite as planned, they stepped right in and knew exactly what to play. The music was a perfect addition to the entire day. The Golden Band was a perfect choice!
As parents of the bride, we were preoccupied with the scheduling of the event. We appreciated that when the bride and groom were later than expected, The Golden Band Wedding Band played on cheerily which entertained our guests so no one else noticed the passing minutes. Appropriate music was provided for the ceremony and livelier tunes were played during drinks and then dinner. We appreciated the Golden Band’s versatility.
We hired the Golden Band Wedding Band to play in the ceremony for our October wedding and we’re still getting compliments on them almost three months later! They were completely flexible and able to customize some special requests that we had and this unique ability was definitely appreciated by both of us as well as our guests. We would recommend them to anyone who needs music for a wedding or other occasion. They’re simply fantastic!
We were so happy with the Golden Band Wedding Band that we’d recommend them to anyone. Their bluegrass sound combined with their versatility and professionalism make them a great alternative to a string quartet. They’re both a little more casual and a lot more fun! They had the kids dancing and our older guests tapping their feet before we walked down the aisle and during the cocktail hour. They even arranged a waltz just for us and played it during the recessional! We couldn’t have been happier.
