Real Proposals with The Heart Bandits

Marta Block


We love hearing from real clients, people who have used GigMasters to help them find the perfect entertainment for their wedding event. The Heart Bandits are "marriage proposal planners." They help guys with everything from coming up with a unique proposal idea to carrying it out. We asked Michelle from The Heart Bandits to tell us about a couple of proposals where they've used GigMasters talent!

Oregon Rooftop Proposal

Darin wanted his proposal to be private, but still elaborate. He proposed to his girlfriend Genessa and then took her to a private rooftop. We used GigMasters to hire Funktastic to play just for them.  Genessa felt like an absolute princess when she walked onto a rooftop and saw a private concert waiting for her.

Washington DC Proposal

Bill wanted to really surprise his girlfriend with an unsuspected proposal when they were in DC.  He hired us to come up with a unique proposal idea and we decided to hire a musician to pose as a street performer.  We used GigMasters to hire Nancy Scimone  and the proposal was a total success!  Bill and Kristen walked around Tidal Basin when they stumbled upon a street performer playing “their song”.  Kristen thought it was such a neat coincidence until she went to put a tip in the guitar case and got a great surprise when she opened it.  Inside was a cute frame that said her nickname “Sunshine” along with roses.  She turned back immediately to Bill who was already on one knee proposing!
