Sam Hill Entertainment is such a great way to find wedding reception entertainment. Andrew Juge was quick and sent me plenty of band options that were exactly what I told him I was looking for. Once I selected the one I wanted, the contract was issued quickly and everything went... Read More off without a hitch. Affirmative Groove was amazing at the reception and people are still talking about them weeks later. I could not have asked for an easier way to find entertainment (and my job is in the music industry!) and a better band for the reception.

**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!

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...

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 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...

Their bluegrass-feel worked perfectly in our venue space (Castle Hill Cider) and they played all the hits and classics and our requests. We could not have been happier with the band!

Sam Hill Entertainment took the confusion and complexity out of everything! I found the most amazing wedding band from them. A friend had recommended a band and we tried to book them about 6 months before our wedding but they were already booked up. So Sam Hill recommended...

If there were a hundred stars, Sam Hill Entertainment would get that rating from me. We had Bent Mountain Trio perform at our daughter's wedding on Saturday. They are a fun, Blue Grass Jazz band, offering soothing music, including "canon in d" at the ceremony and fun Jazz at the... Read More Cocktail Hour. 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.

I originally planned to play our first dance songs on an I-Pod, but the band told our wedding coordinator that they could play all of our songs, so that was a pleasant surprise! The band was so much fun and we didn't leave the dance floor once since they started playing. Would highly recommend Sam Hill as a booking agency and definitely recommend E3 as a wedding band!
