Thank you all so much for making our wedding reception epic 🙂 Your music and entertaining skills are truly awesome and our reception would not have been what it was without you guys. We have been getting constant compliments about how much all of our guests loved you guys. We hope you guys had a blast, too! Much Love and Many Thanks, Colleen & Bob
Thank you so much for making our wedding unforgettable! Multiple times throughout the night we said to each other, “OMG! What would we do without Derek!” Everyone has complimented your amazing talent and ability to entertain. You were great to work with! Thank you again and again, Leah & Nick
LOOK NO FURTHER. This is the BEST wedding band in metro Detroit, in Michigan, in the entire United States, maybe even the world – but I haven’t done my research that far to say for sure 🙂 . We’ve been to weddings with bands, djs, etc. and none of them even touch how great the DRB is. Our dance floor was packed from start to end, they executed flawlessly, showed up on time, performed without any technical glitches, and killed it. Derek is the best MC you’ll ever encounter. He pours his heart and soul into everything he does as does the rest of the band. Every single guest at my wedding commented on how amazing they were. I could go on for days, but I’ll stop right there. They’re the best there is. End of story. Thank you so much DRB. You MADE our wedding. Love, Dan & Kristin
My husband and I got married October 4th of last year and I have to say the best part of the wedding (besides getting married of course) was DRB. We had so many compliments from all our guests throughout the whole night and even a few months later! They were worth every penny! We had so much fun with the band and they even learned our song to play for our first dance….definitely a bonus! If you can, book DRB for your wedding. You will not regret it!
I don’t have a single bad thing to say about the Dan Rafferty Band! We couldn’t be more thankful to them for making our reception so much fun. The staff was fantastic to work with leading up to our wedding day. We felt instantly at ease with Derek and he ensured that the whole evening progressed smoothly. Everyone was incredibly kind and accommodating, which made our planning from out of state significantly easier. They had fantastic energy and talent and the dance floor was packed until 1:00 a.m! All of our guests commented on how spectacular the band was (and a month later people are still singing their praises!) and I sincerely think the reception would not have been nearly as fun without the Dan Rafferty Band. Don’t think twice about booking this band, you couldn’t choose a lovelier, friendlier, more talented and professional group.
The Dan Rafferty Band = one great party! They made our wedding. It was the best decision we ever made. They are totally worth it! The positive reviews are accurate! At one point, my 8 year old niece was on stage singing Taylor Swift with them. I think it made her year. We also used them for our ceremony and cocktail hour music. They are very talented musicians with a passion for what they do. Thank you DRB! Keep doing what you’re doing!
Words cannot begin to describe how amazing The Dan Rafferty Band is!! The dance floor was literally packed the entire night, which I’ve never seen at a wedding. Derek went out of his way to come up to my groom and I throughout the night to make sure that everything was going exactly how we’d envisioned it. They played music that EVERYONE enjoys – old, new, playful, fun, upbeat hits. It was literally the most perfect evening because of this band 😉 I can’t even count how many people asked me for the name of the band after the reception. They are worth every penny!! We almost couldn’t even get people off the dance floor to go do the sparkler send off because everyone was having such a great time. Simple the best band ever. Highly recommend.
The Dan Rafferty Band was one of the BEST decisions and vendors of our entire wedding. They truly made our night and took the reception to another level. E3 was so amazing to work with throughout the entire process — very organized and responsive. The band met with us before the wedding to get to us and our music preferences and they really listen. The night of the wedding they seriously brought the house down. So many people came up to me and said this was the best wedding ever because of the band. One friend said she felt like she was at a concert. They are so far beyond your typical wedding band. They are incredibly talented from the singers to the musicians. Not to mention all the MC help (not at all cheesy) to keep the night moving. I would recommend them to anyone! And go for the horns, too 🙂 Can’t thank E3 and the DRF enough for making our special day so much fun.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to the Dan Rafferty Band and all of their support crew for their amazing performance at our wedding! I could not imagine the night without them. They were simply incredible! The jazz trio sounded wonderful and lent to a relaxed and festive atmosphere during the cocktail hour. We knew that we were in good hands with the DJ and Derek as the MC. Derek guided the evening along effortlessly and with so much spirit. We were able to totally relax and enjoy every moment of the reception! As far as the band goes, well……where and how do I begin to review them? This is one of the most fantastically gifted group of musicians/singers you will ever find put together. They made the night, hands down! All of our guests were blown away by how awesome they were and people are still talking about them weeks after. The energy in the room was electric and nobody wanted them to stop! We are so thankful that we decided to hire the Dan Rafferty Band. That was easily one of the best decisions that we made during the wedding planning process! Everyone was such a joy to work with (including staff), from beginning to end. The band was even willing to learn new songs just for the occasion! They helped to guarantee that this most special and magical night would be a truly unforgettable one. For that we thank them and we will always be grateful fans!
Let me tell you how awesome the Dan Rafferty Band is. We had very high expectations for a band, our family and friends are wedding party animals.. So it was hard for me to justify spending money on a band to start the party. It was off the hook! My dad who rarely dances was glued to the dance floor. Flower girls were dan rafferty groupies, Patrick (husband) rapped, my sister was breakdancing, and I’m pretty sure a few people did the worm. I remember looking up at the band and thinking.. Seriously? This is our wedding? How awesome are we?! Do it, spend the money.. People will be talking about your wedding for years to come.
I can’t begin to tell you how much Alan + I loved you and the DRB!! So many of our guests loved you as well – you all truly made the night!! Thank you for the great performance, the energy + all around fun! I hope we can see you all again!!
Thank you all so much for making our wedding amazing! You guys were even more awesome than I could have ever imagined… Thank you for making our night so special! You guys were a hit! It was a night I’ll never forget, in thanks to you all! We’re definitely going to “follow” your performances. Thank you again.
You seriously made our wedding. Take it from a Bride, when you’re approaching your wedding you are so nervous about people having fun and if the party will click. I think it is safe to say both of those things happened and the party and the fun exceeded my expectations. You and your band were so genuine and I really think you have magical powers, and I think you’ve found two new groupies in Pete and I. Hopefully we will see you guys soon at another Toledo wedding!!! Thank you a million times over you made so many people so happy!!!!
[We] just wanted to send a big big thank you to the Dan Rafferty Band for being with us to party on our wedding day! You guys are without a doubt the best band and we are so grateful we found you guys! Seriously – you were amazing and did such an incredible job! We still have guests talking about how amazing the band was. Everything from the ceremony (thank you for the last minute changes) to the intro, the Horah, to the last song of the night. Who would have thought our dance floor would have been too small? You guys are awesome and we just can’t say Thank You enough! You always have an impeccable reference from us!
Thank you for making our wedding night so memorable. It was truly a dream come true. The dance floor was always lively and what more could a bride & groom ask for? We are so glad we chose E3 Detroit! Cheers!
There are just no words to describe how great Derek was as the MC and the entire band…so FANTASTIC! Everyone (and I mean everyone) I have spoken with since the wedding has commented on the band. And don’t worry, I told them all exactly how to reach you. E3 Detroit, in combination with Emerald City Designs, was by far the most outstanding group of professionals we worked with during the course of planning our wedding. I will be forever grateful to David for recommending you, and forever grateful to you for the booking and coordination of the band so that the event went off without a hitch. You went above and beyond our expectations in every way! Thank you, again!
