Permanent Vacation, Thank y'all for giving us and our guests a night we will never forget!! We had so much fun and had people coming up to us all night to let us know how awesome y'all were!

They ran the music for our ceremony by supplying speakers, provided mics for the officiant and groom and played a play list provided by the bride. They also played a playlist supplied by the bride for the cocktail hour and then played live for our 4 hour reception. They were more amazing than we ever could have imagined and made the groom and I feel so important and that our wedding was one of a kind. We would HIGHLY recommend them to any couple looking for a night full of dancing and good music.

Best of the Best!

What can I say about Permanent Vacation that hasn't already been said?! They are the BEST wedding band in Charleston and really know how to work the crowd! They have been doing this for years and you can absolutely tell through every step of the process. They make the effort to... Read More get to know you beforehand and what it is you are looking for at your wedding. Then they actually make it happen! Whether it's learning your first dance song (which they happily did for us!) or announcing your wedding party, they do it all! And they are seriously the most FUN band around. I had one guest tell me that she typically is skeptical of wedding bands and prefers DJ's, but that Permanent Vacation was the best wedding band she'd ever seen! So if you want your guests to really get down and have a fun and memorable wedding, you won't think twice... go with PV!

Read More Vacation helped turn our wedding reception into my dream reception...I wanted a big party, lots of fun and dancing and that is just what we got! All night long our guests told us what a great band we fact, when I talk with folks who were at the reception, they still mention what a super band we had playing at the wedding reception. I felt as though the band wanted to make my wedding reception just as special as I did! Months before the wedding we were contacted by the band with questions about the types of music we wanted to have well as what we did not want to have played. The band kept in touch with me right up to the wedding was very comforting - I never worried about one of the biggest pieces of the wedding! From now on, any band I hear at a wedding reception or out in the community, will be compared to Permanent Vacation! Thank you again and again Permanent Vacation!!
