About
TOP TIER is live music at the highest level! We provide the best of both worlds—a fun, high-energy party band and a smooth, light jazz band all in one! So whether you just want a great dance band, or you also want some relaxing dinner/cocktail music before the party really heats up, look no further. Top Tier has 5 vocalists and an incredible repertoire that spans 7 decades and encompasses almost every genre of music.

Top Tier consists of top notch, experienced musicians with a passion for performing. Our band members have shared the stage with a diverse group of artists, such as Rick Springfield, The Cars, Craig Morgan, Tiffany, Phil Vassar, Ambrosia, and John Ford Coley. We've also written music and recorded with members of Sawyer Brown, Winger, Thompson Square, Giant, and Steve Perry's band. Our music has been in major motion pictures, TV, advertising, and recorded by several artists. Our female singer was a featured contestant on Season 10 of American Idol.

When we do give you a quote, it includes learning two songs of your choice free of charge (first dance, father/daughter, favorite song, etc), PA system, band lighting, dance floor lighting, playing recorded music before we start and on our breaks, serving as emcee, a wireless mic for toasts, any travel costs, liability insurance, and us covering The Bash booking fee. We also offer many ceremony music options. In addition we have wireless lapel microphones and uplights available for rent as well.

**Here are just a few testimonials posted on other sites from Top Tier clients**

"We are from Ohio and when we were looking for a band for our daughter's wedding in Nashville, we were totally at a loss. So I hired Top Tier totally based on recommendations from other brides- and wow were they right! Top Tier far exceeded any expectations I could have possibly had. They had the crowd on the dance floor from the very first song until the very last! They came unto the floor and interacted with the crowd, and they were the nicest people you could ever have asked for. Their professionalism was over the top. I would hire them for another event without even thinking twice! They absolutely made the reception one people won't forget soon. I can't even tell you how many people came to us during and after the reception to tell us that this was the best band they had ever heard. If anyone is looking for a wonderful dance band for any event that is made up of the nicest people ever, don't even give it any other thought- just book Top Tier. We are so thankful we did!!! BTW, we paid extra to have the saxophone player, and very glad we did." - Alina H. (Ironton, OH)

"Top Tier was amazing and exactly what we were looking for in a band for our wedding. My wife and I had met at an 80's cover band concert (popular band on the west coast) and it was important for us to have a band that could play that genre well. Top Tier did that and a whole lot more, playing jazz for the first hour and then playing everything from songs from the 70's to current country. We had asked them to learn a song, which they performed flawlessly, and were also great MC's for the evening. We were somewhat apprehensive hiring a band sight unseen (we live on the west coast and were having our wedding in Little Rock), but Top Tier blew away our expectations and we are so glad they were part of our big day. It was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding." -Tom P. (San Francisco, CA)

“Top Tier was absolutely incredible!!! We would 100% recommend them to anyone and everyone! JD is so awesome to work with - he responds quickly, is very helpful, and very flexible! The band did an awesome job getting our crowd involved... even let us play a little guitar, tambourine, and cowbell! They let our entire bridal party sing on stage and sang happy birthday to two of our special guests! All of our guests were ranting and raving about how fun they were! We are so thankful for Top Tier - they truly made our reception perfect!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!” –McCall G. (Nashville, TN)

Amazing!!!!! First of all, JD's communication was outstanding and I was never once nervous about their music selection and flow of the ceremony and reception. We couldn't have been more pleased with everything they did. Our guests kept complementing them to us all night. They kept the party going and interacted with the guests! If I had to redo my wedding, I would definitely use Top Tier again!!!! We loved, loved, loved them!!!!! Dianna & Jimmy Boyd

When searching for a band for my daughter's reception in Nashville,we were hoping for a band that would keep the party going all night. We hired Top Tier based on their reviews, and we were totally blown away by them!!!! They were AMAZING- the crowd started dancing with their first song and never sat down until the reception was over!! They interacted with the crowd by coming onto the dance floor and inviting crowd participation, and everybody went on and on by how great they were. They were also so accommodating and the nicest people you would want to meet. If you are looking for a fantastic party band, Top Tier is it!

Top Tier was ABSOLUTELY wonderful. They rocked my wedding and kept guests on the dance floor ALL night! The were very interactive, came out on the dance floor and kept everyone involved. JD also acted as the MC for the night and kept things rolling. He was quick whenever I had any questions leading up to our big day and very accomdating. I owe so much (if not all) of the lively, fun atmosphere of my wedding to Top Tier. I highly recommend them to ANYONE. I was concerned that a band may not be as "fun" as a DJ, but I was so wrong. They were SO MUCH BETTER. If anyone hires Top Tier and would like to invite me and my husband to their wedding, We'd love to attend.;)
