WE LOVE THIS BAND! Lisa Rene Band recently played our wedding reception in May and it was truly amazing. We had heard them at a friend's wedding reception a few years back before we were even engaged ourselves and I remember leaving that wedding reception and saying how fun it... Read More was and that if we ever got married, we were booking them to play our reception. Fast forward a few years, we got engaged and the first vendor we booked was Lisa Rene Band! Easiest and best decision we made. They were so lovely to work with. Lisa Rene is 100% approachable and willing to answer whatever questions you have. She did a truly amazing job emcee-ing our reception in addition to the outstanding performance of the band. Everyone at our reception was out on the dance floor shaking it...even family members I've never seen dance ever before. We are forever indebted to Lisa Rene and the band for making our wildest dreams come true. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Hire this band...you will not be disappointed!!

Lisa Rene band was absolutely extraordinary at our wedding and wedding reception. My husband and I randomly saw her perform years ago at an outdoor summer show in Chicago. As we began planning our wedding she was one of the first calls we made. Her performance was THAT... Read More memorable. Lisa is kind, accessible, incredibly responsive, and a dream to work with. She kept in close communication with us on scheduling, song choices, and even learned songs that were not on her set list to make our experience exactly what we wanted. Lisa and her band have a wide-ranging set list, and the experience to know what wedding guests really like to hear (and what they don't). She created the most entertaining, get on your feet, sweaty fun dance party we have ever had the joy to participate in. I would recommend the Lisa Rene band over and over and over again for anyone looking for a fun night you will never forget.

The Lisa Rene band helped make our wedding and reception a once-in-a-lifetime celebration. They played tasteful tunes during the ceremony and a broad array of fun, raucous pop and soulful rock that we were allowed to help choose and that got a crowd ranging from teens to... Read More septuagenarians up and on the dance floor. They even learned a song for our dance and worked with my son and a friend on a song they could do a sax duet for. The band was tight and Lisa's got a powerful vocal range that works across genres. I can't tell you how many people told me the band made the event. We would recommend them for any occasion.

The Lisa Rene Band was the backbone of our reception! Can't recommend them enough!! During the planning process, we were so impressed by Lisa's attention to detail and flexibility. She was so patient with us and even met us at the venue (in downtown Chicago) to make sure the... Read More set-up would work (we used a slightly non-traditional venue). Additionally, the band learned 2 new songs for us! We had our hearts set on a Mumford and Sons song which they learned and knocked out of the park! They also learned the song for the mother-son dance. "Little" touches like that made our day that much more special. So while I can't talk enough about how much we appreciate Lisa, I should probably be focusing on how much our guests enjoyed the music!! Everyone was blown away by the band. We love a good dance party, and it couldn't have been better! From aunts and uncles to our college friends, everyone was on the dance floor, loving the music. My 2 priorities for our reception were good food and good music and we couldn't have picked a more perfect band. Thanks Lisa!!!!

I loved this band!! I am the mother of the bride (and the check-writer) and was so happy that this band worked out so well for my daughter's wedding. I have people coming up to me saying that this was the best wedding band they have ever heard. What I really liked was the... Read More ability to get everyone dancing (young and old, alike). They played songs that my daughter requested plus some of their own choice, and it was perfect. They also played during the wedding (violin) and it sounded beautiful. But the very best thing?....Lisa!! She was so friendly and excited to play at our wedding. It made my daughter happy to have a vendor as thrilled as she was about the wedding. You could really tell that the band was happy to be there. And lastly, for all the other check-writers out there...the cost was very reasonable (I did a lot of checking). Bottom line---A BIG THUMBS UP!!

We recently had the Lisa Rene Band at our January 2016 wedding. When we started planning our wedding, we were pretty sure that we wanted a band. I started looking around online and we wound up seeing the Lisa Rene Band play at an outdoor bar in Chicago. We were really impressed... Read More with their performance and decided to hire them for our wedding. Working with Lisa Rene has a breath of fresh air. She is extremely professional and responsive. Anytime I had a question, I would get a response from her within 24 hours, which was very helpful during the planning process. Lisa will learn a few new songs for you if, for example, your first dance or father-daughter dance, aren’t on their song list. But trust me, their song list is very extensive! You will find way too many songs that you will want to hear played at your wedding! About a month out, Lisa sent us some paperwork to fill out that really helped us get organized for the wedding. You pick out all your “special” songs you want to hear, select ten songs on your must play list and pick out any songs you don’t want to hear. The best part of the Lisa Rene band is that they aren’t a tacky wedding band. They aren’t going to be up there singing the Chicken Dance. Going into the wedding, I was very excited for everyone to hear the band and they did not disappoint. The dance floor was packed the entire night! I could not believe how much fun everyone had. I heard multiple people rave about how fun the band was and they honestly made our wedding perfect. If you are on the fence about booking a band in general, trust me, it is worth it. If you have the chance to hear and see the Lisa Rene Band at some point, I think you will definitely be convinced!

As we are coming up on our 1 year anniversary in less than a month we can not help but reminisce on the day we hold so close to our hearts. Every single detail of our wedding day from start to finish resulted in memories that we are forever grateful for. When we relive our... Read More wedding day over and over again in our heads there are specific people that come to mind who played such an integral part in our special day. Today I want to shout from the rooftops as loud as I possibly can in regards to the Lisa Rene Band. We find it hard to express in words how truly thankful we are to have them in our lives. The Lisa Rene Band is more than just a band, they have become a part of our extended family. If you are looking for a band that not only ROCKS IT OUT, but that you know will transform your event from ordinary to extraordinary search no further because they are the band for you! Our family has had the Lisa Rene band play a huge part for my oldest brother and two sisters weddings as well and we would not have had it any other way. Details I as the bride had not even thought of were thought of by Lisa. Lisa truly does it all! For example to show how detail oriented she is: she even sat down with me to ensure that she knew the pronunciation of every single persons' name that she was announcing from the wedding party. We could go on and on and on about the Lisa Rene Band, but please just know that you will be forever grateful for having them a part of your special day.

Your guests won’t remember the food, they might remember the venue, but they will never forget the entertainment. So It can be average, it can be good, but if you want incredible, you want the Lisa Rene Band. Not only did Lisa provide a broad array of songs, by genre, to pick from which was even more extensive than the previous list (I still had the old one from our last wedding) but they learned four or five new songs that my daughter and son-in-law (and I ) really wanted for their special night!!! Lisa came well in advance to our museum reception venue to customize their acoustical and physical set-up to the unique lay out of the venue. The night of the reception Lisa helped smooth out a few anomalies totally unrelated to the Band just to help insure the evening went well. The dance floor was full literally the entire night as the Band mixed up the cadence interspersing our preselected songs with their own selections that blended well and appealed to all ages! No one wanted the evening to end! We received so many positive comments that evening and already today we have received numerous kudos on the how enjoyable it was to have a quality live band! Thanks Lisa and to your whole band! We can’t wait for our last three children to get married!!!
