My advice: Book Big Easy Love! The team was fantastic, from discussing my vision for the wedding vibe to learning some special songs - they were amazing. Everyone said it was the best band they'd ever seen at a wedding. We used them for pre- and ceremony music, the reception and... Read More the Second Line. Big Easy Love took the stress out of coordinating all the different musicians, and were very reasonably priced! They performed "We Found Each Other in the Dark" by City and Colour for our first dance; it was magical, and I'll never forget when the saxophone player started his solo. I get teary just thinking about it! Book them - you won't regret it.

We love to dance, and so do our friends and family. Sure enough, Big Easy Love had everyone up on the dance floor from the minute we finished our first dance.
