Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 8, 2015From Chesaning, MI

We can't say enough great things about Shotguns and Violins. They were very professional and quick to respond to any questions we had. They even went so far as to learn a song we had requested for our reception. They could have taken the easy way and just played it using their DJ services but instead they went the extra mile. All of the songs they played were all covered so well it was hard to tell between them and the original. Tara was an awesome DJ, while the band took their breaks and she was quick to play any songs we requested. All of our friends and family were very impressed and asked for contact info which we gladly gave! We loved Shotguns and Violins!

WeddingReviewed on October 21, 2014From Windsor, OH

SHOTGUNS AND VIOLINS WAS AWESOME!!! They came all the way from Michigan to play for my Northeastern Ohio wedding and they were FABULOUS! Very easy to work with and to communicate with! They play a great variety of country songs from current popular country artists to some oldies but goodies country artists! THEY KNOW what they are doing so if you want a GREAT country band that will make everyone pack the dance floor HIRE THEM! In addition, they also offered DJing services for when they were taking their breaks! THANK YOU shotguns and violins for making my wedding so memorable and making the dancing non-stop! I got sooo many complements from my guests! - Kelly Winner

FundraiserReviewed on July 30, 2015From Clarkston, MI

Shotguns and Violins is a real crowd pleaser, I saw people dancing and having a good time all night long, they carried the party perfectly. 4 hours they played for us, and Tara did an AMAZING job with our live auction and announcements. They are perfect for our fundraiser and we will be using them every summer for our Denim and Diamonds Gala in Clarkston. They sounded great from the first song to the last, perfect volume in the venue. Talented, professional, handsome, generous, easy to get a long with, they ROCK!!! They genuinely cared about our cause and our guests, it was a dream come true! Thank you Shotguns and Violins!!! We highly recommend them!!

WeddingReviewed on July 8, 2014From Oakley, MI

This band is great to work with and great to listen to. We hired them for our outdoor wedding and did not regret it. They were quick to respond to emails, texts and phone calls. They accommodated all our requests and did a great job announcing us upon arrival and keeping the whole wedding flowing smoothly. When they started to play our dance floor filled up and stayed that way all night! We had so many compliments on them and highly recommend them for any event. Not only do they sound great but they are great performers, and great guys, and fun to watch. Thanks for helping make our special day amazing! We couldn't have been happier. Hope we see you again soon.

We hired them for our wedding on 9/16. They are AMAZING!!!! You couldn't ask for nicer people. They were there for me from day one. Checking in from time to time as year went on to make sure I was all set. If you want a live band, hire them! They keep my wedding smooth and on time. We received some many complents on how well they performed! I would hire them over and over again hands down!

WeddingReviewed on October 6, 2016From Fairgrove, MI

The band was WONDERFUL! The guys went above & beyond to make sure my wedding was a memorable one. We had to make some last minute changes due to weather and they never batted an eye. The dance floor was packed the whole night. I'd highly recommended them for any event!

Corporate FunctionReviewed on July 14, 2016From Saline, MI

Great job! They were set up well before the event, started early, and toughed out a very hot and humid day. Excellent music, and interaction with the crowd. I would highly recommend this group for a variety of settings.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on May 20, 2016From Brighton, MI

We had a great time with Shotguns & Violins! They were more than accommodating with the rainy weather and the size of our party. Everyone LOVED their music and energy!! The kiddos at the party were even excited to get in on the action with the band members, singing themselves!! We were sad to see the night go so quickly as everyone was having a great time! We have already decided to book them again this summer for our neighborhood block party. Thanks again to the band! Your talent is exceptional!
