Made me feel at ease

FANTASTIC. Everyone complimented the musicians -- people were loving it. They were very organized in the lead up to the wedding, and made me feel at ease.

The best night ever

I honestly could not have asked for a better band! Working with them was such a dream! The music was perfect! They kept everyone on the dance floor the entire night! It was the best night ever and Emerald Empire Band was a key element in making that happen!!

Sydney A., The Knot, March 2020

The best decision we made

Hands down the best decision we made for our wedding. These guys have such talent and such energy, my whole party was up on their feet dancing all night having the time of our lives. The music and song choices were incredible, every member was so talented!

Alex T., Wedding Wire, March 2020

So many compliments

Amazing!!!! We got so many compliments all night and over the last few weeks since the wedding! The music they played was amazing I would highly recommend them to anyone and everyone looking for an amazing band with high energy that everyone will enjoy!

The crowd went wild!!!

The Crowd went Wild!!! LOVE THIS BAND!!! We went to see Emerald Empire play at a local showcase and instantly knew we wanted them to play at our wedding. Somehow they managed to get EVERY person out onto the dance floor. So many fun memories that we will never forget, all thanks to Emerald Empire!

Rebecca P., Wedding Wire, February 2020

So easy to communicate with

Better than I could have imagined. I knew they were talented, but they really do know how to keep a crowd entertained. Our guests danced the entire night and are still talking about how great they were! Prior to the actual wedding they were so easy to communicate with. I always got quick responses to my questions, and they have a website for planning/preferences that makes the process so easy to use. If you want a great band - look no further. They are worth it.

Renee P., The Knot, March 2020

Incredible

Best money we ever spent! So many people told us it was the best band they've ever heard and the most fun they've ever had at a wedding. They were incredible. Highly recommend to everyone and anyone.

Katelyn D., Wedding Wire, February 2020

What a joy

What a joy it was to have Emerald Empire Band play at our wedding. Leading up to the wedding, it was very easy to communicate and plan the details of our day. The night of our wedding the music was SO fun! Everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for making our reception special!

Mary Fran P., The Knot, January 2020

Flawless from planning to performance

Everything was flawless from planning to performance. Just about every guest at our wedding went out of the way to compliment the band. The dance floor was “lit”. It was unforgettable.

Owen L., The Knot, January 2020

Such a great value

Amazing band in every way! Such a great value and a fun group of musicians! They kept people dancing the entire night! My husband, who is a musician himself, was able to play and sing a couple of songs with the band which made his night! All of our guests loved the band and several friends still comment on how great they were! Booking and organizing EEB was extremely user-friendly! I wish our reception was longer so we could have jammed and danced with them more!

Sarah M., Wedding Wire, October 2020

Fabulous Flexible Band!

Fabulous Flexible Band! It was fabulous working with Emerald Empire Band. They were incredibly helpful setting up for the ceremony, rolled with the punches, and played an amazing set. The guests loved them! I look forward to working with EEB again soon!

Jennifer L., Planner, Wedding Wire, May 2020

The energy was incredible!

Absolutely perfect! The energy was incredible! People are still asking me where I found them, and I am still getting comments about how amazing they were months after the wedding. We would do it all over again in a heartbeat!

Regan J., The Knot, January 2020

Best. Decision. Ever!

Best. Decision. Ever! We adored this band! The entire process was super smooth and easy! The band is very laid back and caters to what you want on your big day. And, they looked like they were having a BLAST while playing, which kept the vibe super upbeat! I don't think any other band could do what they do!

Ellen S., The Knot, May 2019

Incredible talent, epic performers.

Incredible talent, epic performers. We hired Emerald Empire's 11 piece band for my daughter's wedding. Wow! Unbelievable entertainment. Our dance floor was packed from start to the very last song. Working with Richard on coordinating both the band and a string quartet was very smooth. The entire organization is very professional. We continue to hear from guests who thoroughly enjoyed the performance. Thanks so much for taking our wedding over the top!

Mae D., The Knot, June 2019

FABULOUS!!!

This band made my daughter's wedding. THEY ARE FABULOUS!!! If you are looking for a band that gets everyone dancing, having a great time and have the chops to do it, then this is the band for you. Additionally, they were professional, on time and willing to take requests. I can't think of anything they could have done better.

D.C., The Knot, September 2019

They make pre-planning a breeze

As a wedding planner, it is my absolute pleasure to work with Emerald Empire band. They make pre-planning a breeze and are flexible for different timelines. On the day of the wedding, they are on time, check in and go with the flow if we have any last minute changes for the reception. I love working with EEB!

Jen, Planner, Wedding Wire, April 2018
