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!
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!
They were absolutely phenomenal! All of our guests kept talking about how great they were and this band was one of my favorite parts of our wedding day! If you are looking for live music for your wedding reception, book them immediately! You won't regret it!
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.
