I'm starting to look into a band for my wedding reception in Charleston, SC. Any great suggestions for a local dance band? I'm interested in oldies/R&B/rock/80's...typical well-rounded wedding mix. I want to make sure our band has great energy and keeps everyone on the dance floor!
We had the band Lundy booked through Other Brother Entertainment and LOVED them. They were more focused on 80s and rock - not so much the wedding standards. In regards to energy - they were awesome, and it was a party our friends STILL talk about. It was our intention to have a formal-ish wedding and beginning of the reception - they dj'd music we requested for that part. But then we wanted a real party - and their live music kept all our friends dancing after our older guests departed. They may not be for you if you are looking for something that appeals to all ages the whole time.
We used Fowl Play (www.fowlplayband.net), best deal in town. They were great, played lots of old stuff and the dance floor was crowded for most of the night. Very easy to work with and I highly recommend!
