We loved so many songs...actually, EVERY song. Not a single song was lackluster. Every selection was perfect. So many people who we didn't expect to dance DANCED! Jack had a tall order as we like an eclectic mix of 1940's-2000's and they nailed it! I also am so impressed with the flow of the wedding. Everything ran smoothly, all of the transitions were flawless. A truly magical experience.

Outstanding Performance! Absolute Talent!

We hired Jack Garrett and The Syndicate for our June wedding in Lexington, KY and could not have been happier! Our wedding reception was truly an amazing party thanks to them, and they had our guests of all ages dancing on the dance floor and having a good time. Their energy... Read More livened the party and we've lost count of how many guests told us during and after the wedding, how much they enjoyed the band, and how it was the best wedding reception they had been to in ages.

Jack also helped us arrange the timeline of events for our wedding which was extremely helpful and much appreciated since we did not hire an actual wedding planner. Our experience was absolutely perfect and we highly recommend Jack and his band for any event!

There is a reason Jack Garrett is so highly rated, this band is great!!! We hired the 12 piece band for our wedding reception in January. Initially, we had a few reservations about hiring Jack and his band: first, they play so many weddings it is difficult to hear them in... Read More person before you book them; second, we’ve heard large “brass bands” in the past that were sometimes difficult to dance to; and third, we thought all of the positive reviews were simply good marketing – almost like it was too good to be true. However, from the moment we heard Jack play our fears disappeared and we knew his band was the real deal. He had the entire dance floor packed all night and played nothing but hit after hit. Weeks later and our guests are still talking about how this was the best wedding band they’ve ever heard and how much they enjoyed their music. They weren’t just good music, they were a good time! While his band isn’t the type that jumps up and down and runs around on stage, they don’t need to be: their music is phenomenal and Jack is a great emcee. Apart from the quality of their music, what sets them apart is that they know exactly what to play and when. If you have a bunch of drunk college friends dancing, they’re going to play something that’s upbeat and easy to dance to. If your aunts and uncles want a chance to slow dance, they’ll dial up a love song. If you’re just looking for someone to play wedding classics like “Shout” and “Sweet Caroline” they’ll play it better than any other wedding band in the tri-state. Plus, Jack knows just the right times to interject his personality and interact with the crowd. He’s also a great guy and was very easy to work with throughout the wedding planning process. He was full of helpful advice regarding what works well and what to stay away from. If you’re a music person and want to control every song that is played, he’d be more than happy to accommodate and the band is good enough to play any type of music you want. On the other hand, if you’ve never thought this much about music in your life, he is full of great suggestions and more than happy to take control of your wedding day playlist. We highly recommend Jack and his band!!!

When my wife tasked me with finding a band for our wedding, I looked at bands from Det, Cle, Indy, Col, and Pit. I'm really big on reading reviews with almost any purchase, and with every band I saw for those cities on the knot, nothing really jumped out at me. They were all... Read More very expensive for what I wanted (10+ piece band with a big horn section). Somehow I forgot to look at Cinci wedding bands and I saw Jack's band pop up. I was already impressed with how they were overwhelmingly the most highly rated band I could find within proximity to Columbus. I called Pam, the band manager, and she immediately scheduled a phone-meeting for me with Jack that night. Not only did I get a great vibe from Jack on that call, but I was honestly shocked when he gave me the quote. It was half of what every other band had already quoted me! Jack also really went into detail about the backgrounds of each of his musicians. He explained to me that this wasn't your ordinary wedding band. He was right, these guys were absolutely amazing. I wanted a band to bring the house down that night and I explained that to him. They didn't disappoint. So many of our friends and family told us after the big night how blown away they were with the band. I can firmly say that you probably won't find a better wedding band out there. They were consummate professionals throughout the entire process and Jack makes little personal touches to the whole experience that made that night so memorable. Thank you again Jack and I would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat.

Start to finish, they were the most engaging and attentive people and the band members went out of their way to speak to us throughout the evening to say what a lovely night it was. They... Read More were gracious and professional and so high energy. Our reception venue had a few slip ups in terms of keeping things rolling smoothly and even though it wasn't their responsibility to keep things on track, Jack and his gang did the best they could to coax the venue along. The music was flawless and all of our guests said it was the best music at a wedding they had ever heard. Better than original versions. My great big Italian family was in heaven with the classics, my mother and aunts and uncles appreciated the songs from their childhood. The best part I would have to say is that for our first dance song, we picked one that they hadn't heard or done. They picked it apart and put it back together in a way that would allow it to sound great played live, and with their instruments. They went in the studio, and they practiced it. It sounded SO wonderful you would have thought they'd done it a zillion times before. Genuinely wonderful individuals. Jack stopped us from making some rookie mistakes when it came to how we organized our reception and the whole experience was worth every penny. Could not recommend them more highly, one of my favorite parts of that day, and it'll always be a huge part of our memories!

Shortly after getting engaged five years later, my husband and I knew we wanted a band and I quickly did an... Read More Internet search for Jack's band. After listening to them again and playing them for my then fiancé and family we knew we were definitely going to hire them for the big day. After booking them, Jack's assistant called up to set up a meeting. We met with Jack in person and quickly knew we had made the perfect choice. His suggestions, advice, and expertise blew us away. He has so many years of experience in this field as well as the entertainment field, which was very obvious and helpful. After the in-person meeting I would receive two more calls from Jack. One a few weeks before the wedding to finalize things, and another the week prior to review everything and make sure I didn't have any other questions. He made us feel so at ease with the whole process and was extremely easy to work with. The reception was absolutely perfect.

So many friends and family members have been telling us how much fun they had and that the band was “the best they’ve ever heard”. We are still getting text messages and emails from friends and family asking us for the band’s name. The whole night went off without a hitch and that was completely due to Jack! He went out of his way to truly make sure the night was perfect.
