My friends and family suggested DownCity for our wedding band and boy, am I happy they did! The months prior to the wedding Dave was amazing to work with and answered any questions I had! At the wedding, DownCity showed out in every way! They prioritized playing songs we chose as “must plays” and kept the party going! If they didn’t know a song, they were able to play the recording easily. Their ability to interact with the guests is top notch; they even came and danced with us! I can’t say enough good things about DownCity and highly recommend them for your wedding or event!!

DownCity was the perfect band for our wedding. They were very accommodating to all of our needs and had everyone dancing from the moment they started to the end of the night. I'd highly recommend them and their amazing, versatile group of musicians and singers.

Great vibe, great band!
Band was great. For a wedding you need people who have some life and charisma, which they have. They are flexible and do a good job playing off the crowd. Mixed in a good balance of classics along with more modern music. Would recommend them to anyone.

I highly recommend DownCity Band. They were so great to work with and made sure they sang our "must have" songs. If it was a song that they normally do not play, they took time to practice and perfect it. The entire band had such a positive energy and really puts on a show and interacts with the crowd. My guests kept telling me how much they loved the band. DownCity Band Is Family friendly and just overall good hearted people that truly love what they do. I will most definitely work with them again!

Best Wedding Band Ever!
Down City Band was absolutely perfect. Communication was easy and David was super responsive and helpful with any questions leading up to the day. Day of they showed up early to be sure everything was perfect. The dance floor was full ALL NIGHT. People are still raving about how wonderful Down City Band was. I couldn't have imagined the day being so perfect without them!

Best band ever!
Dave and the band were the best! Dave was so helpful leading up to the event and they were a HUGE hit at the wedding! We are almost two months out since the wedding and I am still hearing from guests about how much they loved Down City Band! Would definitely recommend them for all future weddings! :)

Amazing experience with DownCity Band!
What a great band! We had planned our wedding back in 2020 before the pandemic put a halt on our plans, and needed to push off our party until summer of 2021. That said, David was incredibly responsive, supportive, and flexible in helping us to pivot. Even up to a couple of weeks prior to our event, we were sending requests for the ceremony music and they were incredibly accommodating. The reception was stellar and hands down to the singers for charging up the energy! We had an incredible time dancing the night away, and months later I am still receiving compliments on the band from family and friends. You can't go wrong with this great group of musicians, and there's nothing quite like the experience of live music!

Downcity is the best wedding band in america
From the moment we heard DownCity we knew they were the only band wanted at our wedding. If you've seen them play or perused their website, you know that few bands can hold a compete. We contacted Dave deep in the uncertainty of 2020 and more than once had to put the conversation on hold while we waited to see how June 2021 would shake out. Dave and the band were always cautiously optimistic and extremely professional, keeping themselves and us up to date on the latest state regulations as they changed almost daily. In the end, the stars aligned and we got the non-stop dance party wedding we'd always dreamed of with DownCity keeping the dance floor full all night. They were able to accomodate all our weird requests (like a motown/soul/disco/funk only setlist, though I'm sure they do a mean rendition of Don't Stop Believing) and answer all our neurotic questions (including a very last minute ceremony music change, which included learning two new songs) to ultimately helping us figure out what would make the day feel special to us. Dave is a true pro and from the first time we spoke on the phone I knew we DownCity was going to make the reception special. We would recommend them to anyone for any event. DownCity was everything we wanted and more for our wedding and they were a dream to work with.

We fell in love with Down City Band after seeing them perform in Newport! They were so helpful and responsive leading up to the wedding (especially in a pandemic world). They were willing to try new things and they knocked it out of the park with the songs we asked them to learn for our special dances. They kept the energy up the whole wedding and guests are still talking about how great they were! I would highly recommend them to any other couple, especially for a dancing crowd.
Jessica K. · married on 10/10/2020 Best Decision I Made!
Hiring the Down City Band was the best decision that I made for my wedding. They have an extensive song list and learned three songs for me that were not previously on it. They covered the ceremony music, cocktail music and dance music all with great talent and excellent professionalism. Despite the Covid atmosphere, everyone had an amazing time and loved the band. I would recommend them to anyone who wants to up their wedding game!
Jennifer P. Married on 09/12/2020 Phenomenal Wedding Band
I cannot say enough good things about this band. They were absolutely amazing and so beyond our expectations for how great a wedding band could be!! If the band was playing, the dance floor was packed and they did a great job at making sure they had all the details and name pronunciations correct. They learned every song we asked them to perfectly and were the easiest to work with - very professional and kind. The band and the food were the 2 most important things to us and we couldn’t be happier that we went with Down City Band! Lastly, the value of this band is pretty phenomenal given competition in the area is often double and they played for ceremony, cocktail and reception-HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! If you guys read this review, thank you SO much :)

Have a Party with DownCity
If you want to create a party, DownCity Band delivers. They have it all: horns, strings, drums, vocals, choreography, enthusiasm... In terms of preparation, it was very easy to work with DownCity so no need to stress. Their professionalism was outstanding, as was the hoppin' dance floor their music helped to create.

Amazing band above and beyond our expectations!
Down City Band were absolutely amazing at our wedding on 10/5/19! Dave was so easy to work with and really helped create our vision and the band was flexible and accommodating with our requests. Jessica even jumped right in and straightened out my dress and veil before I went down the aisle! They kept the energy up all night and I still have people asking where we found such an incredible band. Thanks so much to Jessica, Maceo, Dave and the rest of the band for their outstanding hard work and enthusiasm. You made our day so very special.
