From the first chord of the first song to the last note of the last song, the Counterfeiters had the dance floor full and rocking. After seeing them once, we knew they would be supplying the soundtrack to an awesome night. They did not disappoint! Guests have been raving about... Read More them since, and many have asked for their contact information. Their professionalism and openness to collaboration was top notch. They even invited the bride to one of their rehearsals to pull off an unforgettable wedding present for her new husband. They exceeded every expectation and made every one of our visions come to fruition. We could not have asked for a better group of musicians to be with us on our wedding day. We can’t wait to hear them again soon!

The Counterfeiters are phenomenal! They made our wedding day (July 15th) so incredibly fantastic. We have so many wonderful memories! We loved everything the Band played! My husband loves the Rolling Stones - and he is super critical of bands playing Rolling Stones songs -... Read More the Counterfeiters surprised us with 2 Rolling Stones songs and my husband started his rooster strut! My husband absolutely loved the Counterfeiters' singing the Rolling Stones songs! All of our guests loved the Counterfeiters! There was never a moment our dance floor was empty! Our guests could not stop raving about the Counterfeiters. We were constantly asked - Where did you find that band?! One of our guests commented: That Singer (David) was like a parrot! Every song he sang, he sounded like the original! From our initial conversation, David of the Counterfeiters was wonderful! I knew instantaneously that this was the right Band for our wedding. He is super friendly and easy going but super professional. During our first conversation, David said - We like to make this easy so you can focus on the real stuff! David put my mind at ease and he was in touch as we got close to the wedding date to finalize details and ensure we were on the same page. We love the Counterfeiters and are planning to go to one of their shows. We really wish we could have an anniversary party every year and hire the Counterfeiters! Words truly cannot express how we feel!

If you're planning a wedding, you're probably thinking "let's get a DJ, everybody will enjoy listening to the same rehashed generic wedding songs" Wrong. Get a band. It will be the smartest decision you make. And this is the band to get. They played our wedding on June 30th,... Read More 2017 at Doolan's Shore Club and it was literally the best night of both of our lives, in large part to these guys, who provided the soundtrack. They're super professional, have clearly played a bunch of weddings and know how to get the crowd moving. They specialize in 80's rock but don't be fooled, they can bust out 90's stuff, Prince, Stones and are pretty flexible and eclectic. The lead singer is cool, the sound guy is clearlya pro and they are all approachable and accommodating to your requests. But they will play "Jessie's girl" whether you like it or not.

There's more to being a great wedding band than just being a great band. Every wedding is different. No two are the same, thus, the ability to go with whatever the day may bring, and make it look effortless, is truly the mark of a GREAT one. From the bridal party entrance to the cutting of the cake, The Counterfeiters bring the energy! The band's ability to read a crowd and keep both the young kids (and not-so-young kids) on the dance floor from start to finish make The Counterfeiters second to none when it comes to throwing a great party!
