"We worked with In Full. The band was good and their selection of songs was great, but the person we worked with was very snippy with our bridal party when we were lining up. We were there to have fun! They didn't play the one song we asked them to learn, and they turned off our last song half way through."

"We chose E3 for our wedding band and they rocked the night! They played a great mix of oldies and current songs that got everyone on their feet dancing. People still talk about how great the band was that night."

"Soul Expressions was absolutely amazing! They announced our very large wedding party and then played jazz music during our seated dinner. Then they made the night so much fun with the music they played for dancing after dinner. Our guests had a blast and my husband wouldn't stop dancing, which says a lot because I usually have to beg him to dance with me! They brought all of my bridesmaids and myself on stage for several songs, which was so fun! Our wedding definitely wouldn't have been the same without them! A little hard to get in touch with for questions the weeks before the wedding, but respond better to calling the band contact versus emailing. Overall, they were wonderful and made our reception so much fun!"

"We could not have been happier with Sam Hill Entertainment. The staff is quick to respond, organized, and very helpful in band selection decision. They suggested a few bands for us to check out within our price range and did not disappoint. Another Level was absolutely excellent and we cannot rave about them enough! Every wedding guest was on their feet dancing the entire night - including my 87 year old grandpa! Thank you for making our wedding day so much fun!! "

"I absolutely loved our band Horizon (part of Sam Hill Entertainment). We received so many compliments about how fun and upbeat the music was at our wedding. We had guests of all ages dancing the entire night. Their price was extremely reasonable too!"

"Working with Sam Hill was simple, they recommended a great band that worked in our price range. We had Affirmative Groove and everyone raved about how fantastic they were. They had everyone on the dance floor all night and played the perfect blend of slow and fast songs, new and old, everyone from the little kids to the grandparents were up dancing. I very highly recommend them!"

"We hired the Blue Tips Rhythm Review through Sam Hill Entertainment and were thrilled with their talent. The musicians sounded even better live than in their demos. The dance floor was packed the entire night and they played great hits, and no cheesy music. "

"The Deluge is a North Carolina band who made the trip up to Charlottesville for our special day. They learned several special songs for our first dance, mother-son, and father-daughter dances. It really made the whole night. They played southern rock, country, blues, and new alternative rock. Everything from Otis Redding to Alabama. Our guests never stopped dancing."

"We absolutely adored our band Six Stylez. They couldn't have been better and added so much to our wedding. They even learned our wedding song! Sam Hill was organized, professional and responsive. Our only wish is that we have a reason to use them again in the future. "

"The whole group at Sam Hill are total professionals! They were very helpful in recommending bands that fit with the feel we wanted our wedding to have while also keeping within budget. Empty Pocket was an awesome wedding band that kept everyone on the dance floor - folks kept complimenting them during the wedding as well as after. "

"We booked the Jangling Reinharts through Sam Hill. Andy, the agent with whom we worked, recommended them based on what we were looking for and our budget. The Reinharts did a phenomenal job of putting together amazing sets. They have a huge repertoire of several generations of great music. We picked a few favorites from the set list, and they did the rest. The variety kept people of all ages and stages dancing the night away. They were easy to work with, very professional, and tons of fun to be around. Many of our guests gave us rave reviews of this band!"
