Corporate FunctionReviewed on November 4, 2021From Malvern, PA

I can't say enough good things about The Other Side. Gary & Jim were kind, professional, and had a great selection of songs played incredibly well. Both my team and event-goers commented about how good they were. I couldn't be happier with booking The Other Side and look forward to working with them on future events!

The Other Side Band:

Hey Kristyn, Thanks for inviting us to play for your company! What a great experience. Glad that you liked our songs. We created the show just for your event. Looking forward to seeing you all soon! ! Gary and Jim The Other Side Band

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on November 1, 2019From Swedesboro, NJ

Wow! What an amazing band. From the time I booked them (8 months in advance) they were great communicators and wanted to know all about our event. They were easy to keep in contact with. They played great music and sounded awesome. They even helped the evening along by making announcements for us. Even after our event Iam still getting compliments on how great the band was. This was perfect acoustic style music that fit our event and it was songs everyone knew and loved. They rock Neil Young! Thank you Other Side Band for making our night perfect and memorable. You can’t go wrong with hiring this band, they deserve more than 5 stars.

The Other Side Band:

Hi Tracy and Greg, Thank you so much for choosing us. You guys were great to work with and made our job easy! We loved entertaining you, your friends and wonderful family. Thank you for your generous hospitality. Feel free to keep in touch. We’d love to see y’all out at one of our shows! All the best :) Gary and Jim The Other Side Band

Graduation PartyReviewed on July 10, 2021From Moorestown, NJ

Absolutely perfect for our event. Gary and Jim put on a fantastic and talented show, and set exactly the right mood for our son’s graduation party. All ages of attendees commented throughout the night how great the music was and The Other Side Band was absolutely the highlight of the evening. Our fears of our guests being drowned out by overloaded volume were never realized. The set up was exactly right. Loud enough to provide great entertainment but not so loud as to kill conversation. The band was extraordinarily nice and easy to work with. Great communications leading up to the event and 100% professional throughout. Would recommend without reservation!

The Other Side Band:

Hi Scott, Thank you for the great review and your hospitality. It really was our pleasure meeting you all and performing for your party. If we were able to rate clients, we’d give you five stars all day long!! Again, thanks and congratulations to the graduate. Enjoy the rest of your summer:) Best Jim and Gary The Other Side Band

WeddingReviewed on September 7, 2019From Landenberg, PA

We could not have chosen a better band! Gary and Jim were so accommodating and scheduled several calls to check in with us prior to the event to ensure the playlist and to see if anything had changed with timing or song choices.. On the day of the event, they really helped everything to run smoothly. They even played one last set after everyone left just for the bride and groom. We could not have been happier with our choice and would love to use the guys again in the future for another event.

The Other Side Band:

Dear Lisa and Chris, The pleasure was all ours..What beautiful wedding! Thank you for your kind words, your generosity - and the wine! We agree, everything went perfectly :) Our last set was a first time for us and very special. Something we’ll never forget. Our sincere best wishes and looking forward to seeing you both soon. Gary and Jim The Other Side Band

Graduation PartyReviewed on June 27, 2020From Chester Springs, PA

The Other Side Band delivered. Exactly as advertised. They added great atmosphere to our party. All of our guests complimented the band -- set list, interactions with people, volume (loud enough, not too loud). I'm so grateful for Gary & Jim. They were excellent and I would 100% recommend them for any party.

The Other Side Band:

Thanks Mark! It was our pleasure performing for you, your friends and those amazing graduates! They were so thoughtful and surprisingly well versed in classic songs. Best of luck to all of you:) Stay safe and hope to see you soon. Gary and Jim The Other Side Band

MeetingReviewed on November 6, 2020From Philadelphia, PA

The Other Side Band were fantastic and would definitely recommend them to anyone! They were so friendly, professional, and easy to work with for our event. It’s really inspiring to see so many musicians and creatives adapt and pivot in such unique ways when the world turned upside down this year.

The Other Side Band:

Hi Melissa, Thank you so much. You’re so right! This has been a tough year. We’ve had to come up with creative ways to reinvent ourselves and get our show out there. We really appreciate you giving us the opportunity to use our creativity in this new virtual world we’re in. Using new technology like green screen has opened new avenues for performing and The Other Side is ready to go! It was was our pleasure working with you and your team and performing for your conference. You guys rock! Thanks again Gary and Jim The Other Side Band

WeddingReviewed on September 27, 2019From Valley Forge, PA

The Other Side was fantastic! Saw their great reviews so we hired them to do ceremony music, MC the reception and first dance - which was awesome. They're friendly, professional and did a perfect job. Everyone loved them. Couldn't be happier!!! Thanks guys!

The Other Side Band:

Hi Kaitlyn! It was our pleasure being there on your wedding day. Thanks for your great review! We’re working a recording of your first dance song and will share it with you soon. Wishing you all the best. Jim and Gary The Other Side Band

Community EventReviewed on June 8, 2018From Trexlertown, PA

The Other Side added a great vibe to our opening night of racing at Valley Preferred Cycling Center — they played a fun and wide range of music that paired perfectly with cold beer and burritos for pre-race festivities.

The Other Side Band:

Zach, Thanks for taking the time to rating our band. We really appreciate it :) We had a great time watching the races and plan to return a to the track soon. Have a great summer! Gary

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 4, 2018From Hummelstown, PA

This was our first time hiring musicians. These two were great and helped me through the process. They followed up on every aspect and really gave me a peace of mind that this would be a success. They showed up on time and got set up without taking up any of our time (which was vital for this event). They were very professional and courteous to all our guests and they very really fun. We will definitely use them again. I rarely say this but I thought they were underpriced so we actually payed them almost double what they requested. That should some up how happy we were with The Other Side Band!

The Other Side Band:

Hi Jay! Thank you so much for your kind words and nice review. It was our pleasure playing your event:) Hope to see you again soon. Gary and Jim :)

Private PartyReviewed on September 18, 2021From Kennett Square, PA

They were great ! I would have them back anytime! They went out of their way to learn new songs that were requested. They were able to perform on the spot request. The sound system was great! Their interaction with the audience was very professional and friendly. Thanks guys!
