I just wanted to THANK YOU SO MUCH for playing for Kurt & I's wedding 01/18/14 @ City Park Arbor Room. It was such an incredible night for us!!! I first heard you play at my cousin's wedding 6 yrs ago, then again at St. Charles Borromeo school fair this year, and my friends... Read More wedding in September... I knew as soon as we got engaged I wanted to book yall to play for our wedding. And it was the best decision ever!!! You guys are amazing and can master any and every song you played!!!! My guest couldn't stop talking about how awesome you guys were. I've never seen a wedding with the dance floor packed the entire night. From the oldest guest to the youngest, everyone rocked the dance floor. Thanks again for making our wedding night perfect and an incredible memory to cherish forever! An even bigger thank you for being so easy to work with and wonderful from the very beginning.

No Idea played at our reception and we really liked them. The groom and myself had never heard them play before - we booked them solely based on recommendations from people we knew, but we are glad we did. It was important to us that we not only got to talk to our guests and... Read More thank them for coming, but that we also got to dance and enjoy the reception. We definitely got to do that! We had a smaller wedding (~130) and I was a little worried with a smaller crowd people would be more hesitant to dance. No Idea got everyone dancing and kept them dancing throughout the night. Enjoyed working with them!

My husband and I just recently got married on June 11, 2016 and we couldn't have picked a better band for our big day. They played a variety of songs and the dance floor was never empty during our 4 hour reception. My husband and I love to dance and my husband had a list of...

I booked No Idea for the band at my wedding and I couldn't have made a better choice. They were wonderful and really got the crowd going.

So Much Fun!

Choosing a band was not easy for me -- music isn't one of my main interests. I went off the the list provided by my reception venue without any real knowledge of selecting a band. Trying to just determine who was available and how much it would cost, I called and spoke to Troy... Read More Marks after looking at their website. He quoted me a price that was $1500 lower than any other band (because we had an afternoon reception), we went with them. No Idea turned out to be absolutely incredible. They made our reception so much fun and played a great mix of music. I am confident that they are the reason so many of my wedding guests told me it was the best wedding they had attended.

Great Band. Had the entire wedding party up and dancing all night long. I had nothing to go on except online music samples and reviews. Very entertaining and affordable. We couldn't have been happier. Highly recommended.

Troy Marks and the No Idea Band were AWESOME! They truly made our wedding a hit! The two things my husband and I really cared about for our wedding was a great band and a good open bar -- Troy and No Idea could not have been better!! They played the best mix of songs that kept...

I can't even begin to count the number of people that came up to us afterwards and said they were the best wedding band they'd ever heard. Having a Jewish/West Virginia wedding we had some special request for the Hora and a rousing sing-a-long to Country Roads, and they made it perfect! Everyone was really sore the next day from 4 hours of dancing, which was exactly what our goal was! If you want a great party, hire this band!!

Hands down, best wedding band...ever!

"Picking the band" was pretty much the one wedding task my husband really had a strong opinion about, so when it came time to pick the band, he interviewed and listened to samples from a number of bands before selecting Troy Marks. We had never heard them in person (we are from... Read More Los Angeles) so we were a bit nervous to see how it would all play out, since in our opinion, the wedding band determines how much fun the party is, but Troy Marks and the No Idea band did not disappoint! They were amazing! Our guests had the best time and our dance floor was packed the entire time- if the band could have kept playing until 3AM, our wedding guests would have been there...dancing! We got so many compliments on how great they were and I can't even tell you how many people told us that Troy and the No Idea Band were easily the best wedding band they had ever heard. I highly recommend using Troy Marks and the No Idea Band!

Wow. Just wow.

Hiring a band, especially considering we don't live in New Orleans, was sort of our "wild card" vendor. We had never heard them perform live and all of our business was conducted via email so we were obviously a bit anxious. However, there was ZERO reason for concern, because... Read More they were one of the best choices we made for our entire wedding! We gave No Idea an idea of which songs to play, but we also have them free reign to play intuitively based on what the crowd seemed to like...they even allowed the groom (guitar) and matron of honor (bass) to play a song, as well as letting some of our cousins rap to the Humpty Dance. They were SO accommodating and energetic. Don't hesitate. They're fun, friendly, & amazing performers...all of our guests were still talking about it the next morning!!!
