This band was highly recommended to me, and for good reason! I had several guests comment to me during our reception that this was the BEST wedding band they had ever heard. One of the common praises was that during each 20-minute set, the band seamlessly transitioned from one... Read More song to the next without letting the music die.

I'd give In The Fields 10 stars if I could! These guys were amazing!

Highly recommend In The Fields!

I cannot recommend this band enough. In the Fields was a definite highlight for our wedding. I'm a musician and am very picky when it comes to live music. Steve is an incredible singer and the 3 piece band packs a punch playing live. Another plus is that since they're only a... Read More 3 person band, more reception sites can accommodate them because they take up less space than a 7-15 piece band. I personally don't care for wedding bands that only play old school, jazzy tunes. In the Fields has a wide variety of song selections that spans pop, rock and country. They have oldies and newbies spanning Billy Idol's classic 'Mony, Mony' and Walk the Moon's 'Shut up and Dance with Me'. What my guests were amazed by is that when they're playing, they never stop between songs - they go straight into the next song, no break. So when they play a 30-40 minute set, they are playing for 30-40 minutes straight, there is not a single moment of silence between songs. When the band does take a 15 minute break, I recommend letting them do the playlist for the band breaks. One of their band members is essentially acting as a DJ for these 15 minutes and picking songs to play. They do an excellent job picking the songs for the crowd, so let them do their thing and have one less thing to worry about on your wedding day. Steve is very easy to work with and extremely kind - I highly recommend booking In the Fields for your wedding day!

BEST WEDDING BAND! My husband and I searched for a band that we thought would keep our guests dancing all night, and In The Fields did just that! They are truly an amazing, talented group.

We hired In the Fields to play at our reception (7-11pm) and they did an awesome job. Multiple guests commented that they loved the seamless transition between songs. One of my guests also loved that the drums were set up behind a plastic screen of sorts so the drums weren't... Read More overpoweringly loud in our smaller reception space. They rocked on even after the floor wasn't very full, and they were fun to have playing while guests chatted in the adjacent room.

Don’t bother looking for a bad review as there are none … and for good reason. Steve has this down, from running his business to performing. He is very prompt with communication throughout and has a planning template that is very thorough to make planning easy. We hired In... Read More The Fields to play at our son’s wedding on 9/17/16. Steve and crew are extremely talented and play a very wide variety of music. I was on the dance floor all night and I really don’t dance. I wish I could replay the night over and over again. Let Steve do his own thing as far as picking songs. He has a talent to read the crowd and adjust on the fly to keep the dance floor full. I talked to quite a few bands and there was no comparison as far as VALUE! If your date is available now, don’t wait any longer or your date will be gone. Check out their calendar…they are busy!!

We hired In the Fields based on reviews and their website (without seeing them in person). No regrets. The lead singer of In the Fields, Steve, performed acoustic music for our wedding ceremony. His performance was beautiful and exactly what we hoped and asked for. The band... Read More performed for our reception and we received numerous comments from our guests as to how amazing they were. In the Fields sends out a very detailed performance planner prior to the event, which makes the planning process easy. The band learned specific songs that we requested.

All in all, hiring In the Fields was one of the best decisions we made and we would recommend them to anyone.

In the Fields was absolutely incredible for our wedding and we would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, upbeat band. Our big worry going into the wedding was finding a band that could play upbeat music to keep everyone dancing all night. Other bands did a... Read More good job of either getting the adults to dance (with older songs that were too slow for our friends to dance to), or (often DJ’s) played music that our friends liked but that adults couldn’t dance to. In the Fields crushed it and our dance floor was packed from 9pm to 1am with both our friends and parents’ friends. They did such a great job and everyone was so excited to be on the dance floor that they played straight through their final set break because they didn’t want to stop the party. In the Fields was an amazing value relative to the other bands that we checked out and they were very flexible on when we wanted them to play. Steve was extremely responsive in the planning portion of the wedding and sent over a great planning guide ahead of the wedding to make sure we had all of the logistics for the first dance, spotlight dances and open dancing all set. In the Fields did a great job learning our first song and crushed it. One of our favorite parts about In the Fields was the range of music that they can play well, ranging from Pink to Zac Brown Band. They had the most extensive list of more modern songs that we saw and are able to play all of the songs well. If you even think you might be interested in a more upbeat band that can play a good mix of country and pop, I would strongly suggest going to see Steve and In the Fields live as they play around the Twin Cities fairly regularly. Overall we couldn’t be happier with the performance that Steve and In the Fields put on and it has been by far the most complimented part of our wedding.

"One more song! One more song!" This is what our guests were chanting at the end of the night. Need I say more? In the Fields delivered in every possible way.

They transitioned right from one song to the next, always picking the right songs to keep the energy going. Their variety and vocal range is fantastic.

Our guests are still talking about this band, no joke. We wanted to throw a memorable party and these guys made it happen. I would highly recommend In the Fields to anyone, whether for a wedding or just a night out if you're lucky enough to have them playing at a pub near you. (Oh, and they did play "one more song"...or two... because they are AWESOME!)

I would, without a doubt, refer In the Fields to friends and family because they were a huge hit amongst our wedding guests and made our wedding reception a night to remember! A year later we are still getting compliments about the band and how great they were. I heard about... Read More In the Fields from my sister-in-law who was in a wedding that the band played at. She was pregnant and said she never left the dance floor. I knew they were a band worth looking into. The music went from one catchy song to another with no breaks which made you want to stay dancing to see what was coming next. This would explain why the dance floor was still packed at midnight, begging for the band to continue. All songs were catchy and fitting for people of all ages. For those who didn't like dancing, they stayed close by just to watch and listen to the band. Not only did In the Fields produce quality music, they were relaxed and easy to work with. Communication was simple and smooth. Once I returned my completed request sheet, I put trust in the band that they had experience working with events. I let them do their thing and the night went so smooth. It was one less thing I had to think about! The cost was so reasonable. Had it been much higher, we would have resorted to getting a DJ. Dancing our first dance to a live band made the dance even more special. After our wedding, many hesitantly asked how much we had to pay to have In the Fields. They were shocked when we told them. I am happy we chose to spend the extra money to get live music. The price was right and worth every penny! I am very grateful that In the Fields was able to play at our wedding reception.
