    I'm moving from Atlanta to DC in March, and getting married in DC in September. I'm trying to find a band to play the wedding reception at a DC hotel, but most of the bands I've seen and heard through local booking agencies are way too cheesy for my taste. I don't want glorified lounge singers with choreographed dance steps (not that there's anything wrong with either, just not what I'm looking for).

    Anybody play in or know of a good DC area band that plays weddings? I'd love to find a good funk/rock band that can also play a few standards or swing tunes for the old folks. My future bride would like a band with both male and female lead vocalists, and horns are not required but would be a plus. You can PM or email me or just respond in this thread with any ideas. Thanks.

    They played my wedding a year and a half ago, they are incredible. The best wedding band I've ever seen, they are out of this world. I can't recommend them highly enough.

    Tell Mario that Phil Hamm sent you. He even let me get onstage and play bass with the band near the end of the reception.
