We dealt with Pat Parise in the summer of 2020. We had booked FM band when our original wedding was rescheduled due to covid. Pat had promised that if the wedding was cancelled we would receive our deposit back. For over a year he told us he wa...
s sending the deposit back and then he finally just stopped responding. It is unfortunate because I am sure the band is great and I would imagine that the others do not even know about Pat pocketing the deposit. I recommend not doing business with people like this.

Amazing music! The musicians were extremely talented. Our guests are still talking about how much fun they had! We had a few special requests which they were able to accommodate. They accompanied my nieces for a special wedding song and I (bri...
de) sang as well. At one point, I noticed a small stain on my dress and the lead singer whipped out a tide to go stick on the dance floor.
My only "complaint" was that I sometimes had a hard time getting in contact with the band's manager. He always answered the phone but didn't always follow up on emails which made me nervous. Everything did end up going smoothly on the day of the wedding, but I could have used a little less stress during the planning stage.

y helpful in planning and choosing songs for our wedding day. They even learned our first dance song and a few other songs we had suggested. The variety of music they play is incredible and gets everyone up and dancing the entire night. Guests I would have never expected to dance were up dancing. The FM Band definitely kept the energy up in the room the entire night and I am so thankful we found them. Thank you Pat, Rayna, and the entire FM Band!!!!!!

Hire this band! We initially heard them at another wedding, then went to see them in AC, and they are amazing no matter where they are. There are multiple people in the band (different singers and instruments) which makes them extremely versa...
tile. I mean, not many people can sing like Lady Gaga, but they have a singer who nails ‘Shallow’ every time she sings it. Our guests were on the dance floor having a good time the entire night, which is exactly what you want as a bride/groom. I gave a list of ‘must-have’ songs which they played with no problem. They are extremely easy to work with and always available to take your call. The added bonus is that they play at multiple venues and bars so you can easily go and take a listen. You will not regret hiring this band!

few years ago and I kid you not I called her immediately after getting engaged to book them. What a great group of people. So much fun, they really know how to read the room and they were beyond flexible while we planned our wedding. My 90 year old grandfather wanted to sing Sweet Caroline to kick off the dancing and they made him feel like a total rockstar. I wish I could have them at every party I threw through the end of time. They even came out onto the dance floor with us at one point. Mind BLOWN! Truthfully. Amazing.

I am going to start this off by saying you won't find a band who is better musically. My husband and I went to see them play around town multiple times leading up to our wedding because they are just that good and bragged to everyone about how...
great they are....unfortunately, though, the business side of things is not only lacking, it is non-existent once they get your business. Leading up to our wedding, we couldn't get a hold of them to give them our first dance song or any other details...even with multiple emails, calls and texts. The only reason we got a hold of Pat is that we used a different number than the one we had previously used to contact him. On the night of the wedding, we had to spend the cocktail hour reviewing the details for the night, including confirming that they downloaded the correct song, had the schedule for the night and our wedding party names rather than mingling with our guests. They took breaks that had not been agreed upon, did not have background music prepared for the breaks, ended abruptly after FINALLY getting the guests on the dance floor, yelled at me and even promoted themselves playing at a bar the next night. I knew everyone said some thing will not work out how you planned, but I didn't think it would be as big of a detail as the band. I never expected this to be the review I would write for them, but if you want a worry-free night that goes smoothly, don't use the FM Band. Thankfully every other aspect of our special day went as well or better than we expected to make up for them, but it sucks when the music was one of our top 2 priorities.

advice! The FM Band kicked off our wedding reception and the dance floor was filled before the appetizer was even served. They played a mix of pop music that appealed to our generation (late 20’s/early 30’s) and hits that our parents could sing along to. Guest of ours who have never danced at weddings were boogying with their spouses (much to their surprise!) and I can confidently say that the band was the highlight of our reception. We received so many compliments about how much the singers and the instrumentals “sounded just like the radio”! I can’t say enough good things about the FM Band’s performance on our wedding day – we were thrilled!

My husband and I are huge fans of live music, but the wrong wedding band can ruin your reception. The FM Band is EXACTLY the RIGHT band!
Their repertoire is extensive, from the tried-and-true to Top 40, and they'll focus their set lists on ...
your favorite genres. All the musicians really know their stuff. Their singers ... wow. They engage the crowd (excellent emcee-ing too!), play together seamlessly, and are so talented! And with an 8-piece band, you get a horn section!
Everyone at the reception -- including people working at the venue who see weddings every weekend -- was saying how incredible they were. The dance floor was packed the whole night.
If you book them, I'd recommend that you ask that they DJ during their dessert-time break (they only took two - one during dinner, one during dessert), to keep up the momentum, but otherwise, they were BEYOND perfect, and a joy to work with!
Check out their website for local shows -- they play at Parx Casino and other places -- if you want to check them out. Quality bands are more expensive than DJs, but if you can fit them in your budget, they're well worth it!
