Amazing! Such a good deal. Really professional and obviously had a lot of experience. Would recommend (and have) to anyone!
We cannot thank Billy and The New Orleans Players enough for an awesome wedding performance! From the start Billy had been incredible to work with, including providing recommendation/advice for planning our destination wedding, helping us build a custom playlist for our big day, and even helping me with advise on a wedding app I am was working on. Even with Hurricane Nate approaching the night of our wedding, Billy helped rally the troops and ensure we had an awesome night with or without Nate. We highly recommend The New Orleans Players for your event as they are definitely a crowd pleaser, know how to party, and our guests cannot stop raving about them! 5 stars!!!!
Billy Franklin and his Krewe ROCK THE CASBAH! The New Orleans Players are a tremendous band with class. As soon as they walked into our Venue to set-up I was thrilled. They provide a relaxed attitude with on-point acoustics. One of things I appreciated most about Billy, was his attention to detail. He and his band really want you to have your own personal vibe throughout your event. We went through songs for our wedding reception that meant something to us. We even wrote a list of "please never ever in the history of ever play this." Thanks for helping to make our night so very special!
This band MADE the reception so much fun! Everyone danced for 3 straight hours! Played music that all our guests loved!
Our guests were blown away. They played Havah Nagilah with powerful energy and joy. The Horah went on and on. They also performed a second line to cap a truly amazing performance. Billy was great at making song recommendations that kept all our guests on the dance floor the entire evening.
You will never regret hiring this band. Energy, musicality, professionalism. Friendly and easy to work with! They were the highlight of the wedding - I still have people ask me about them 6 months later!
Amazing Experience!!! I couldn't believe how good they were. Amazing singers! The wedding bands I've seen have been average at best. This is a REAL band! We went to see them before hand at one of there shows in New Orleans and booked them the next day. They also took care of MC-ing the wedding and worked with the planner to keep everything on schedule. Highly recommended!
BEST wedding band!! Though it's hard to think of them as a wedding band since I've never seen one this good before. The gave us a great deal and obviously love performing with each other. We found out later they are actually a touring band that also does original music. Our planner was said it was the easiest band she has ever worked with!
So so so so good! Thanks to Billy and the team for a great experience. Great musicians and really reasonable prices. Loved the singers and song selection. Also provided a classical string duo for the ceremony and a brass band for the second line - both at a discount!
We were soooo happy with these guys! They really took control of the MC duties and helped everything run really smoothly. Great musicians and singers! Also good choices for set break music (which they provided).
Best wedding band I've seen, period! I put my fiancee (now husband) in charge of the music, and he totally came threw. They blew everybody away!
Great experience! Helped make the whole process easy and smooth. Amazing singers!
Ok so it took me a little while to review because we've just gotten home from summer traveling. WOW! I couldn't have lucked out more. The New Orleans Players were unbelievable. Most wedding bands I've seen leave a lot to be desired. Great choice of material and they learned the songs for the dances. Highly Recommended!
Great communication, musicianship, and professionalism! We had a chance to see them in New Orleans ahead of time so we knew it was going to be great. I've seen the musicians in this group play with multiple bands around New Orleans. They MC'd the entire wedding and really kept things light and fun. I am still get comments from guests. Plus these guys don't work with a corporate wedding company so you can't beat the price!
