WEDDINGS

  • Surround Sound was amazing! The band kept everyone on the dance floor until the end.  Well done! Love the choreography. Would definitely recommend using them again. Thanks so much!

  • Just wanted to say thank you again for your fantastic performance this weekend! Our guests won’t stop raving about how amazing your performance was. To say that you helped to make the night magical would be a gross understatement. You guys made our wedding night unforgettable. Not only that, your band members were so gracious and accommodating. One of the girls even came up to my wife and said that she saw a butterfly fly into the room during the performance…she knew that my wife’s father passed away recently and that meant the world to her. We will always remember your performance and what it did for our wedding. Thank you again so much!

  • Susie, as usual with everything you all are involved in, the music was perfect. Party on the Moon...wow! So professional and so talented. Their performance was seamless and they got everyone on the dance floor for their entire set. We thank you with all of our heart, everyone had a lovely time and there have been many comments on how great the music was. Thanks to you and your crew.

  • Jeff and the rest of the band did a phenomenal job. Jeff was very professional and easy to work with - emails were replied to very quickly and every detail was handled perfectly. The band was able to accommodate special song requests graciously, which was much appreciated. We would highly recommend Southside Station and hope to book them again in the future. Could not have asked for a better band for our wedding reception. Huge thank you to Jeff and the rest of the band!

  • I wanted to tell you how ABSOLUTELY AMAZING 20 Ride was. They FAR EXCEEDED our expectations. They were truly one of the highlights of our night and we received so many compliments from all of our guests. I honestly cannot say enough good things about them. They were so professional and so talented. The mix of music was perfect and kept everyone dancing and entertained. We will continue to sing their praises as we look back on our day.

  • I wanted to let you know how incredible Zack and Surround Sound were at the reception. The singlehandedly made the party a HUGE success! I have always been a music lover and concert goer but through my friendship with Eric Church and touring with them I have a new appreciation for the artist and off the stage business side. Hearing stories on the road from tour mangers, promoters, crew and musicians is something you never think about hanging out on the front row listening to a show downing your favorite beverage. I have heard all the “hot’ bands over the years (Simply Irresistible, Party on the Moon etc.) at wedding receptions, NC deb ball, Coral Bay Club and all the country clubs from Charlotte to Wilmington and all the other usual stops they make over the years. Hands down Surround Sound is already every bit as good as any of them. But what I was most impressed with is the way Zack carries himself and the band was a total reflection of that in everything they did from the minute the pulled in the driveway. As they were unloading Saturday morning, two of the Carolina Inn banquet staff made a point to come tell me, "I don’t know how they are gonna sound but they are by far the NICEST people to work with we have ever had here.” And that is the way we felt from the moment we talked to Zack the first time on the phone. His (and the band) professionalism and desire to do anything we wanted to make our reception the best ever was amazing. The entire band and their performance was incredible. I still have people stop me and say it was the best reception they have ever been to and who was the band? And they did it was a smile and nonstop energy. Too many times I see these “big time” bands putting on their show and not engaging the crowd. We all felt like we were part of the show and it was one big happy family. I sure felt like we got and incredible value with Surround Sound based on what I have seen from other bands and I hope they are on their way to bigger paydays soon. Not just because they are a great band but because they do it the right way with integrity and pride and are NICE people!

  • Fabulous, magical...there are not enough adjectives to describe Saturday night. Party on the Moon never lets you down. It was a beautiful, stunning wedding that Catherine and Brent along with their family and friends will never forget. It is a gift of memories... I loved the girls dresses. What a class act!  

    Debbie W.
  • "Wow!!" Just wow!! My husband and I were married in Philadelphia on 9.15.18. We booked Surround Sound after listening to their videos online. They are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! From start to finish, the energy was incredible, they interacted with us and our guests. We are behind pleased with them and our experience!!! We definitely recommend them and will book them again in the future for any events we have! Thank you again to the entire band!!! You are all amazing!!!

  • This band was absolutely phenomenal.  Sooooo talented! They made the wedding a huge success. In fact, everyone was bragging that this was probably the most fun wedding they had ever been too. The talent was incredible. Playing everything! Johnny Cash, Charlie Daniels, Footloose, you name it, they played it, even playing requested rare songs! They are so incredibly talented and fun. Worth every nickel that you pay for them and you can be assured that your event will be a huge success. Would love to hire them again for another event. Great personalities, too! Playing hard and long with huge smiles and making everyone dance, sing and have a fun-filled evening.

  • I wanted to let you know how happy we were with the Surround Sound band. You did a fabulous job at our daughter’s wedding and we can not thank you enough for your energy and professionalism. Thanks again.

  • Simply Irresistible was beyond amazing. My guests from all over the world, told me that this was THE BEST wedding they had ever gone to. The band MADE the night!  I could not be more thrilled with how it went. I will recommend them and your company highly!!!!! Making the world healthier and happier!!!

CORPORATE EVENTS

  • You guys were not only great to work with and flexible all throughout the process but most importantly, you delivered exceptional quality music and flexibility on-site as well. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you all and can’t wait until the next opportunity. Thanks for bending over backwards to accommodate our corporate client’s ever changing show flow. You made what could have been substantial timing challenges into non-issues. The audience feedback I have received since is nothing short of fantastic. You truly hit all demographics ranging from the obvious male & female but from 20 year olds all the way to guests in their 60s.  Everybody loved you.

  • 20 Ride was absolutely awesome! Jeff ( leader ) was just a dream to work with!!!

  • I am sure by now everyone is noticing what a great band Perfect 10 is. Customer service is stellar as well as the band. Thank you Jason and Leslie for another stellar performance for Sonny Williams Productions.

  • One word - amazing! They (Simply Irresistible) were great to work with and we hope to have them again.

  • “It was excellent!  Our best crowd so far and Taylor (lead vocalist ) did a great job!   They were super nice to work with, very professional, showed up on time.  I'm sure the committee will consider repeating them next year when we start planning.” (Testimonial for 20 Ride)

  • As you know, I have been booking bands for over 30 years and I have never been more impressed by a band in my life! We were fortunate to have “Big Swing and the Ballroom Blasters” for our 25th anniversary at the Figure 8 Island Yacht Club last Saturday night. Their music, appearance, attitude and stage presence was better than I’ve ever seen. Jerry Freeman was first class and was responsive to every need and request that was made during the night. There will be lots of requests for this band from all of our members attending and I am looking forward to planning our next party, somewhere, where we can afford the 4 more horns!!! Big Swing has raised the bar and some of our old favorites should all witness the production, energy and class that this new band brings to the stage. Big Swing did it all and I hope we can bring them back soon!

  • Fight Night in January has become the thing to do in Charlotte. A great fundraiser, this event draws the who’s who out. Jessie’s Girls rocked the house this year when they hit the stage. I don’t think I have ever seen so many guys just stop in their tracks!

  • As a passenger handler for Pan American Airways, I put the Beatles on a Pan Am plane in London in 1964 as they set out to the United States for the Ed Sullivan Show. At age 70 I have been around. The Minneapolis performance by Jessie’s Girls on September 21, 2013, ranks up there with the best, the best I have ever seen and heard.

  • Big Swing was a huge success for the Wachovia Championship Block Party. I had several people tell me they liked them better than Chicago.

  • Big Swing and the Ballroom Blasters were a huge hit at the 62nd North Carolina Azalea Festival’s 2009 Patron’s Party Gala. They played a great variety of music and had everyone on their feet on the dance floor. Multiple patrons and corporate sponsors expressed their appreciation and said they thought they were one of, if not, THE best band we have had preform at this event. I am happy to be a reference for them in the future, as I would highly recommend them without reservation to anyone!

  • Simply Irresistible was out of this world at the Heart Ball Saturday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Trump and Andre Leon Tally loved them. Ronnie and his team truly made the evening very special. I will happily recommend them to any of my colleagues around the country.

SPECIAL EVENTS

  • Jessie’s Girls made me look like a hero on a recent event, and I just have to share some sentiments. To start, Jessie’s Girls absolutely CRUSHED a show for 6000 University of Delaware alumni in early June for me, and after years of working on this event, the school board and students have never raved this much about a band. Dainavon was incredibly receptive to allowing me to help with general input about this crowd (which I appreciated), but they hit the nail on the head with absolutely every song they played. The crowd went absolutely wild with each new medley as it started, and this band just has that “IT” factor. They look like stars, they perform like stars, but most importantly they treat everyone around them with the utmost respect. For the amazing talent coming out of that band, they are the so humble and gracious. I was incredibly impressed with the way Dainavon spoke to and worked with his band members, and his leadership skills are reserved and calm, but strong and apparent.  I absolutely LOVE working with this band, and each time I see them I’m more and more impressed with how consistent and genuine their kindness is, and how well they can connect with a crowd. AMAZING band led by a total Pro.

  • Just wanted to reach out and thank you guys for helping get Simply Irresistible up on stage and making everything go so smoothly on all fronts. They killed it in both cities and our client was over the moon. Big thanks to y'all for making us look so good. Have a great rest of spring and hope to work again soon. Thanks again!

    Andy B. Associate Producer
  • Thank YOU for making everything so special for them! I saw a video of the father singing with the band and your drummer was just cracking up! I hope it was a blast and you enjoyed the trip.

    The coordinator Melanie said Surround Sound is the nicest band she has ever worked with and she has already sent me some potential dates for 2020 clients! Can’t wait to work together again soon!

    Olivia M. Senior Account Executive
  • Jessie’s Girls was great! We really enjoyed their energy and they were fabulous performers. They really got everyone dancing! After a while, we told the band to play more songs that would get the younger crowd out on the dance floor, and they responded well. They were really fun, and a nice group to work with.

    Kathryn P.
  • We adored Surround Sound!  They were absolutely fantastic! I will hire them again and recommend to everyone.

  • This past Saturday was our 13th annual Premier Gala, with over 950 people in attendance. I must say our event this year was by far our largest success, largely due to Party on the Moon's performance being way way “over the top”! Fabulous just doesn’t cut it...their energy level, interaction with the crowd and dancing, singing, acting …what a complete package. The next day your band, and our event, was the talk of the town. I have had at least 40 people come up to me after the event and tell me to make sure we book the band again for 2018, so please pencil in the date.

  • It was wonderful!  The whole team was so easy to work with and Jessie’s Girls did a phenomenal job!  Mrs. Barbier-Mueller (client) danced pretty much every dance once the full band started.  Last night she said:  “It’s a great party, isn’t it?” and today she texted me:  “Thanks for the best evening I could have ever imagined!”  So, I’d say it was a smashing success! I also owe you a very late thank you for the wonderful job you and POTM all did on the Hardison Wedding!  It is always such a pleasure to work with you and your teams!  You make our jobs easier and that means A LOT! Thank you!

  • Everything was GREAT!!!!  They ended up staying and hanging out with us afterwards while everyone was breaking down!  People are still raving about them!  If you guys want to do "charity" for a bride and groom, you can always have them play at my wedding for free or a really discounted price!! ha ha!!!  I just got engaged in September and they are the first band or any vendor that finally got me excited to start planning!  They were amazing!! The dance floor was full the whole time and the family was super happy! Anyway, thanks for everything.

  • "I can’t thank you enough for being so great to work with! We have heard so many comments about that weekend, and Jessie’s Girls is definitely a contributing factor to how amazing everything turned out. I look forward to working with you again in the future."

  • There is not a better name for ‘Perfect 10’ band.  I can not even begin to explain to you how UNBELIEVABLE they were. They started out at the cocktail reception with beautiful background jazz music.  Our birthday reception (with 180 guests in attendence) was held in the Grand Ballroom at the Ritz Carlton in South Beach.  They played NONSTOP from 8pm to 12pm and had every guest in the room dancing, singing, etc….. I provided them with a songlist (which included 60s, motown, rock & roll, Michael Jackson, and some hip hop). They revised my list and sent back a list of what they thought would be appropriate.  We all thought the original artists were in the room during every song they played. I am so happy I chose them and so thankful to you for helping me do so.  They will play for us again in the future.

  • Hey Jerry!!…You all are undoubtedly the most impressive and positively charged group of performers we work with. We truly meant that tag-team hug and couldn’t possibly begin to express the appropriate amount of gratitude for how you handled such a crazy situation with such poise… THAT WAS A CRAZY STORM!! So many bands would have refused to play!! And your ability to create a situation where guests hardly were even aware of the storm, b/c they were having such fun, was AMAZING.

  • I just wanted to let you both know how much we all enjoyed Jessie’s Girls at our Down East Deb Party. They were absolutely GREAT !!!! Everyone at the party had a wonderful time. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the band. Many people told us that it was the best party that they had ever been to! You deserve a big ‘Thank you’ for a fabulous evening.
