Note: This is going to be a long review because these guys deserve it. if you're looking for something short, just take our word for it...they're a 10/10. My wife and I used Business Time Ent. as our wedding band this past July (2017). It was a 200 person wedding in Los... Read More Angeles and majority of our family members and friends were flying in from out of town. Having live music was really important for us. We didn't have the luxury of a wedding planner or referrals for a ton of bands so we found Business Time online through The Knot. We were attracted to their long set list of great music. After corresponding via email/phone/text we met Tim and Mandy for coffee (note: Tim was so easy to communicate and coordinate with). They were a passionate married couple who loved what they did and they were extremely warm and generous with their time. A few weeks later, we were able to see/meet the rest of the band when they performed a showcase. This was very important for us since the band just moved to Los Angeles fairly recently. They blew us away with their talent and it was clear that they had a genuine love for music...so we booked them! Preparation was key for us since our venue only gave us a few hours of live music during the reception. Tim is a fantastic MC and planner so don't worry about the flow of the reception. He had met with us and talked on the phone numerous times over the course of the planning stage, he and Mandy even did a walk thru of the venue to figure out their set up and our needs. Tim's attention to detail and professionalism made us feel very comfortable leading up to the event. Now for the wedding day. The band was everything we wanted them to be. They brought in the brass musicians, extra singers...you name it. We wanted a harpist for our ceremony...they knew one since they're an extremely connected band and know good talent given their education in music. So, if you want a big band or a small band, they have you covered. Everyone was dancing! The music was fantastic and flowed seamlessly. The set list was perfect. They learned music for us too, so if there's a special song you'd like them to play, ask them...they'll learn it and master it. They even threw in a few fun surprises we loved! We cannot recommend these guys/gals enough. They made our day so memorable and special. Our family and friends are still talking about how awesome they are! Thank you, Business Time!

My fiance and I saw Business Time West at a friend's wedding this past summer and they were FANTASTIC! They had so much energy and kept the dance floor packed throughout the evening. I was also really impressed with how they MC'd the event and kept everything running smoothly.

Tim and the band are absolutely amazing. My wife and I saw them perform at a friend's wedding and asked them to play at ours. They are extremely talented and keep the crowd dancing the whole night.

BTW was amazing! So many guests commented on how much fun they had with the band playing their favorite songs. Tim sat down with us and spoke with us multiple times about what we wanted from them and delivered on every request. They also greatly helped out with the set list... Read More because there was no way my wife and I were going to be able to choose the songs to play vs not play. We had so much fun on our special day and you will too if you choose to work with Business Time West!

I can't thank BTW enough for making our daughter and son-in-law's night of love and celebration BEYOND special. As we told Tim, the attentiveness with which he treated every question, request, and concern during the year leading up to May 28 made all the difference to us. We... Read More were confident that BTW was not only going to be there but that they also understood how much all of this meant to us. That is priceless. The band and its music was awesome. They kept everyone on their feet and no one was ready to leave when it was all over! We have gotten many, many compliments about the night, and it was BTW who kept the spirit alive.
