I can't begin to describe how amazing the band Horizon was at our wedding reception!! Our guests are still raving about them and many actually commented that they thought they were the best band they had heard at any wedding reception. We loved them and the dance floor was... Read More packed all night long! Their song selection was the best and their energy incredible! The band leader, Lawrence was so easy to work with and we genuinely felt he wanted us to have the best reception ever! Choosing the right band was our number one priority from the very beginning. Undoubtedly, we made the very best decision hiring Horizon through Sam Hill Entertainment!! Andy Jaspen at Sam Hill was so helpful in the entire process of making this decision and was always available to answer questions and offer suggestions. A great person to work with! We made the right choice and are so happy we did!

Andrew, Katie, and the rest of the team at Sam Hill were amazing in helping us make our wedding weekend even better than what we were hoping for.

**This review is for E3** We used Sam Hill Entertainment to book E3 band for our wedding day (May 2016). Andrew at SHE was extremely helpful in working with us to narrow down the best band for our wedding. We picked E3 because we could tell from the videos that they had... Read More amazing energy and a really fun vibe. We also added a 4th band member (keyboard player) just because we wanted to make sure there was enough sound and honestly it probably was not even necessary. E3 was just as upbeat and exciting in person as on video and did not disappoint. They play a wide variety of music which got people of all ages on the dance floor. We had multiple people tell us they were one of the best wedding bands they had ever seen. They also played right up until the very end of the night, which we really respected. Most importantly, they pronounced EVERYONE'S names correctly and took the time to specifically go over those kinds of details with me ahead of time. They learned our first dance song for the wedding and played it perfectly. They also stuck to our few "please play" and "please do not play" directives which made the night very enjoyable for us. We cannot say enough good things about them- they are an amazing value!

We worked with Sam Hill to book Affirmative Groove for our wedding last fall. The whole process was easy - Sam Hill provided a list of bands that were available for the date, with links so we could check out details and videos to make our choice easier! We were so happy with... Read More the choice we made - our reception would not have been the same without the energy this band brought! There were more people on the floor than off throughout the entire evening, the band did a wonderful job with our first dance song that they learned for the event, and they were quite accommodating of our play/don't play list. We had a blast, and have had so many guests ask about the band, so they must have done something right! Thanks so much.

Andrew and the team at Sam Hill made it extremely easy to find a band for our wedding. We started the band process a bit late, but they were able to recommend a list of bands in our price range so we could find the perfect group. The Bellevue Rhythmaires played for our reception...

Sam Hill Entertainment took the confusion and complexity out of everything! I found the most amazing wedding band from them.

From the moment we secured our date with Sam Hill Entertainment to having Bent Mountain Trio perform, there was not one moment of stress working with this vendor. Our daughter was married atop a hill, at a beautiful winery. We requested Bent Mountain Trio provide the music component of the ceremony, and then perform at the Cocktail Hour. They easily provided both. The guys in the band were courteous, professional, and did everything we requested. They arrived at the venue well in advance of the ceremony. As the Mother of the Bride, my shoulders relaxed, knowing our music was on the scene. You won't be disappointed, working with the folks at Sam Hill Entertainment, or the guys in Bent Mountain Trio. They honestly strived to ensure this wedding day went perfectly.
