About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Reality Check is a trio from the L.A. area providing dance cover music from the 60's to the present for weddings, adult birthday parties, and other events. For weddings, we offer a complete DJ/emcee/live band package. We play a wide variety of classic rock, pop, funk, motown, 80's, 90's, and some current hits. We're flexible to play at a small house party for 40 guests or a wedding reception/festival for hundreds of people, as our trio can fit into the smallest backyard patio or banquet room band area, yet fill up a large festival stage as well. We tailor our setlist for the specific requirements of each gig to ensure optimal satisfaction from you and your guests. We will omit playing certain songs or types of songs to your preference and highlight others. We'll even learn a few special requests before the gig if you don't see them on our current list below, which is not all-inclusive. Some clients have us play an "all 80s", "all 70s", or "all 60s" show and we will even dress in that decade's attire while performing to add to the authenticity of the theme. The guitarist switches to playing keyboards on several songs. This enables us to play anything from guitar-based songs like "I wanna be sedated" by the Ramones to keyboard-based gems like "Don't you forget about me" by Simple Minds while remaining a trio. We all three sing as well. BOTTOM LINE: YOU CAN HIRE OUR TRIO FOR A LOT LESS THAN A 4- OR 5-PIECE BAND, AND YET YOU WON'T SACRIFICE MUSICAL OR VOCAL QUALITY. Our band comes fully equipped with the instruments, sound system and even some dance floor lighting. Volume is always kept at a reasonable level. For quieter house parties, the drummer will use brushes instead of sticks to help keep the neighbors down the street happy. We will hook up some background music before we start and on breaks to keep the party atmosphere going at all times. We'll even have an extra mic set up should one of your guests get the urge to sing along with the band. For wedding receptions, we'll come early to provide the emcee/DJ function from the time the guests arrive to the time the band starts. This includes playing DJ cocktail hour/dinner music from our sound system, then assisting with the toasting and announcements, first dance, cake cutting, throwing of bouquet, etc. We have wireless mics for your use, as well as audio hookup for slide projector audio cables. We can incorporate all styles of songs into the evening's dance music like salsa, disco, big band, hip-hop, etc. by playing it from our sound system when the band takes a break, complementing the mix of pop/rock songs in our band's repertoire. IN SUMMARY, YOU CAN HAVE A LIVE BAND AND A DJ SERVICE FOR YOUR WEDDING RECEPTION FOR ONE AFFORDABLE PRICE. We'll eagerly communicate with you prior to the event to ensure no detail gets overlooked. We often receive compliments on our timeliness in returning emails and phone calls. We continue to receive repeat bookings from previous GigMasters customers throughout LA and other surrounding areas, and hope we can add you to our list of satisfied clients. Thank you!

Graduation PartyReviewed on May 16, 2021From Los Angeles, CA

If you like classic rock, and want the people at your event to jam out and dance and fun. Hire this band! Seriously the 3 of them were perfect. Jeff and the rest of the band came early and were setup nearly half an hour before I wanted them to be, so that was so nice not having to worry about that. They handled everything that I asked of them so well; from playing bangers during their break to playing all of the songs we discussed beforehand. They even played for longer than we had planned because everyone was having so much fun. But more importantly, they sounded incredible!! 100% will hire them again.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on February 28, 2021From Los Angeles, CA

Hired Reality Check to play in my backyard for a private concert for my cousin's 56th birthday. My cousin is terminally ill, and he loves rock so we wanted to give him a birthday he would never forget. With covid- taking him to a concert or even anywhere is not an option... we have to be very careful. We relayed that to Reality Check prior to booking and they were very kind and respectful of our situation. They arrived on time, were very professional, and very friendly. played the best list of music and my cousin had a blast. We were very pleased with their performance, and would like to hire them again for another event.
