My husband and I were so very grateful to have had the DCMF band play at our Wedding on October 14, 2017 in Cape May, NJ at the Grand Hotel. From the band Director, Billy, who was so very helpful down to every artistic detail, from day 1 of planning to the day of our wedding,... Read More to the band manager with planning and responding to our every question. I could not have been happier! As the bride you have so many details to orchestrate, I did not have to worry or hesitate when it came to the band choice. We received dozens of compliments by all our guests. Everyone was on the dance floor all night long ,from friends and relatives to my 94 year old grandmother. They played variations for all the ages. Our wedding was very memorable and we will never forget how the band tailored the music special for our wedding guests and our choices. We had a blast! I highly recommend the DCMF band if you are looking for LIVE entertaining and beyond talented musicians for your special day!

When Brian and I decided to get married, we wanted to have only the best entertainment for our guests and of course ourselves; it was a difficult decision (because I know so many different bands throughout the tri-state area) but we definitely made the right decision with... Read More choosing The Don’t Call Me Francis Band. The Don’t Call Me Francis Band really made our wedding reception an event to remember. Their performance was exceptional (which I had no doubt that it would not be any other way). They performed all the songs that not only we requested but the songs that our guests requested as well. Even to this day, my friends and family are still talking about the wonderful time that they had at our wedding reception. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Don’t Call Me Francis Band to all my friends and family and to whom ever wants excellent entertainment. Whenever the band is playing locally, Brian and I try to get out to see them; the band members and everyone involved with the Don’t Call Me Francis Band have become a part of our family. You are the BEST band and will always have a special place in our hearts. We love you all.

The Don't Call Me Francis Band was the best wedding band we could have asked for. We got married at Cairnwood Estate in May 2017 and the band went above and beyond to ensure we had the best reception possible. They went out to the venue in advance to check out the space and... Read More ensure we would be ok for AV/technical capabilities. We saw them perform at the shore beforehand and knew we couldn't possibly pick another band. At our reception, everything was perfect. They played our first dance songs via MP3 (per our request) and then kicked off the party with the full band. Our friends and family kept telling us that this was the best wedding band they had ever heard - and we couldn't agree more. At the end of the night, they ended with Call On Me by A-Ha (which they had learned just for our wedding). After the song was over, our guests started chanting "one more song!" Because no one one wanted the music to stop. The band played one more song (Shout - a classic end of the wedding song) and we ended the evening on the best note possible. We truly couldn't have asked for a better experience!!

The DCMF band played at our wedding a few weeks ago. While the music was great and our guests had a fantastic time, there were a few things that looking back that make me wonder whether the expense was worth it. First of all they are incredibly expensive. More than most other... Read More bands we looked at but we thought the number of pieces in the band and their unique sound would make them worth it. Second, they REQUIRE hot meals to be served to all band members and crew which meant an extra $1000 to our budget. We found out the week before our wedding that they were going on vacation until two days before the wedding so we never spoke with them regarding our song list or personal music selections. Lastly and most devastating is that they announced us by the wrong names at our reception. That is a moment that we cannot get back and with a little more attention to detail and some forethought could have been avoided. Maybe their increasing popularity, their customer service is decreasing. I would be extremely careful when booking them, unless you plan to be very diligent in the week leading up to the wedding to make sure they know what you want and who you are.

Best Splurge Ever!

They play every kind of music you would want to hear and they do it extremely well! The dance floor was NEVER empty because of them...even when the food was coming out! Many people told me that they were AMAZING! I especially like that they are a club band and not a wedding... Read More band. They did not play any cheesy music like the YMCA or the electric slide. The price of the band includes a DJ and he will play anything you request. He had a great voice and was an excellent emcee.
