Amazing band! Amazing to work with!Reviewed on 7/07/2014 Colleen K
We had an amazing experience with The Mixed Nuts! Chuck was fantastic to work with - he responded to our MANY questions in a thorough and timely manner and really helped us make decisions. We had a destination wedding and did all of our planning from Minnesota so we were nervous that we didn't have the opportunity to hear the Nuts play live, but we were relieved of all worries as soon as they got started up! They did our second line and our reception and they rocked them both! Our guests are still talking (over a month later) about how awesome they were and we and our families couldn't have been happier. I highly recommend them (and recommend including the horns and their female lead singer - she was awesome!).
Chuck and the Mixed Nuts were absolutely fabulous at our wedding. They had the dance floor at the Federal Ballroom packed from start to finish. I have been a fan of the Mixed Nuts for well over a decade and they have simply gotten better and better. Gwen did an amazing job getting everyone moving to Proud Mary and the energy stayed up at 100 percent the entire night. Chuck is extremely professional, accommodating by email, phone, etc. and he is full of excellent advice and couldn't be any nicer. We had the extra horns section and they were fantastic, so I would highly recommend adding them too. Our guests could not stop talking about how great the band was. We also had the Mixed Nuts coordinate our second line and the Pocket Aces were out of this world. So many of guests (especially our guests from Europe) were blown away by this tradition. I loved every minute of the Mixed Nuts at our wedding and would hands down recommend them to anyone!
Great BandReviewed on 5/21/2013 Brittany R
We had The Mixed Nuts play for our wedding and are so glad we chose them! We love to dance and it was very important for us to have a fun reception that had music everyone would enjoy dancing to, and The Mixed Nuts sure did deliver! They were so easy to work with. A few months before the wedding, they asked us to go over their song list and pick 10 or so of our favorites so that they could get and idea of what we liked and said that they would take it from there. And they sure did, because my dance floor was packed the whole night! We added the horn section to core group, which made for a really great sound! We also took advantage of The Mixed Nuts DJ, who played the last 30 minutes and during all band breaks. He was great too! Closing with the DJ was a great option!
Working with Chuck Credo and The Mixed Nuts was such a pleasure!! I had many questions and would call, text or email Chuck at any time (great communication is important during your engagement!). I chose The Mixed Nuts based on a friends recommendation as I am not from New Orleans. We had a daytime wedding and I was worried about people not wanting to dance but this was NOT the case. Everyone loved the band as did my husband and I. People were dancing before we even made it out for our introduction- I loved seeing this! I highly recommend booking The Mixed Nuts for your wedding, they are amazing.
We are still getting compliments about how amazing our band was! We can’t say enough how much we loved working with Chuck and the rest of the Nuts. They truly made our day one to remember. Their professionalism was only outweighed by their incredible talent! They made the party a true celebration for all ages. We had a blast and so did our guest!
The Mixed Nuts where absolutely amazing. My husband and I were on the dance for the ENTIRE wedding and everyone had SUCH a blast. People are still telling me how amazing the band was. They really made the night special!!!
After seeing The Mixed Nuts perform one night we knew they had to be our wedding band! They had such a great energy about them and their music is top notch! What I really loved about seeing them perform was their ability to feel the crowd and decide what to play next. They were extremely helpful and professional through the entire process and their performance at our wedding blew everyone away!!! They were amazing and I still continue to get compliments on how much fun our wedding was and how much everyone loved the band!!!
The Mixed Nuts were PHENOMENAL at our wedding in March. Chuck was extremely professional and such a pleasure to work with. He is easy to get in touch with and does everything he can to accommodate our requests. The band made our four hour reception so fun and high energy the entire time! We have been married three months now, and our guests are still raving over the Mixed Nuts, saying that they were the best band they have ever seen at a wedding! I cannot say enough about the band's outstanding performance and their amazing manager/band member Chuck!
Whats not to love!!Reviewed on 2/14/2014 Melissa L
What is not to love about The Mixed Nuts. They are the best band out there. They keep the crowd going. Very nice and timely responses. Even when we added the horns and backup singers last minute they accomodated us!
Best Band in NOLAReviewed on 7/09/2013 allison b
The mixed nuts are well worth the money for a band at your wedding. They sound great and can play a variety of music. Plus they don't sing over music (karoke) like some bands I've seen. My dad who is old school and super hard to please raved about the quality after the wedding. We even had the option to add extra horns. We had people on the dance floor the entire 4 hours. The mixed nuts bring their own lighting which really make an impression. Best band!!
Perfect wedding band!Reviewed on 5/17/2013 Jennifer S
The Mixed Nuts were so easy to work with. We gave them a list of the songs we wanted played and they played them along with others that went well with our playlist. They were the perfect dance songs and even made our favorite songs as background music when they took a break. Everyone complemented us on our band...the dance floor was packed all night!
Everyone guest was on the dance floor!!Reviewed on 4/30/2013 Sarah H
I loved these guys!! They did such an amazing job! My guests were all packed on the dance floor and it was awesome! They were great to work with and did a fabulous job! Definitely recommending them to anyone who needs a band!!!
The Mixed Nuts brought the house down!Reviewed on 3/21/2013 Emily L
After seeing the Mixed Nuts at Endymion and various performances, I knew I wanted them for the wedding reception and they DID NOT disappoint. We added the horn section for a local New Orleans flair, who did our second-line through Champions Square - which everyone loved. They were so entertaining and engaging, coming into the crowd and singing at some points and even inviting others on stage with them. Yes, at some point my husband and I were singing Living on a Prayer to the crowd which was followed by him, his siblings and the priest doing an impromptu dance to Footloose. Great times!!!
Phenomenal!Reviewed on 10/22/2012 Dana D
We had such an amazing time at our wedding. The Mixed Nuts were amazing. Just the right mix of music, and they were the perfect volume. I cannot say enough good things about their part in my wedding
They bring the party!Reviewed on 9/16/2012 Mary-Margaret M
The Mixed Nuts were absolutely amazing at our wedding. We had the opportunity to see them once before hiring them and knew they were going to be great. We did the full 11 piece band. Their playlist for our wedding was absolutely perfect and they just got better and better as the night went on. We had so many of our guests come up to us throughout the night and rave about how fun the band was. The Nuts even did our second line out on the street in the French Quarter at the end of the night and it was absolutely perfect. If you want a band that has a really good range and knows how to entertain a crowd that wants to party, look no further.
AmazingReviewed on 6/12/2012 Laura G
The Mixed Nuts are always a fun time, and the people in the band are really great. They did a fantastic job at our wedding reception. They had everyone dancing the whole time! Definitely one of my favorite vendors.
BEST BAND!!Reviewed on 5/21/2012 Rachel L
We had a daytime wedding and reception so we were a bit nervous that people would not get on the dance floor as easily as an evening reception. Chuck Credo and the Mixed Nuts were so good - everyone was on the dance floor while appetizers were being passed around! We requested Dave Matthews "you and me" as our first dance, and Chuck sounded exactly like him!! The music was incredible - seriously, everyone danced the ENTIRE reception. It was a sit down lunch but it didn't matter. Everyone was up having a great time. I highly recommend all the vendors I worked with for our wedding - I was very lucky to have such an excellent group of people. However, the reception wouldn't have been as amazing as it turned out without the Mixed Nuts. Excellent!

Extremely friendly. Made sure all of my favorite music was played. Band was very interactive and it made the reception a blast.
Fantastic BandReviewed on 4/21/2012 Lisa L
The Mixed Nuts are a fabulous, affordable wedding band! They work with you to make the best selection of music. They are able to play a variety of music from oldies to today's top hits and everything in between. They made our wedding fun and guests were on the dance floor the entire night because they were playing great dance party music. I would recommend this band in an instant. All my guests were commenting on how entertaining they were,
So much FunReviewed on 10/23/2011 Megan M
