Cafe Mars is an excellent choice for any event. They arrived as planned and did everything they pomised. Each of the members were very personable and "real" people. In fact, many of my guest commented on how nice, professional and "real" the band was. They are extremely polite, talented, professional and again personable. They were not the typical band e.g. rough or un-kempt, messy, disorganized,etc. They were the opposite. Each member was the type of person one would be proud to call a friend.I WILL be calling to hire them again in the near future, and can't wait to see them again as they are very cool and neat people!
Musically-speaking, this is not a cliche' wedding band . . . not even close. While they are regularly hired for high-end weddings and corporate events, it is because of the quality, versatility and uniqueness of their live sets, . . . not because of stereotypical expectations. If you want a band that can keep 'em on the floor dancing, . . . no problem. If you need them to create a more sophisticated "listening" environment, these guys can even deliver that as well, at a level unmatched by typical cover bands.
While some bands make a "claim" of versatility, it is usually at the expense of the music itself. With BCS Express, "versatility" is delivered at an uncompromising level of musicianship and performance. A brief resume' of each member bears out the quality, experience and professionalism comprising BCS Express. These guys are not only full-time musicians, but they are also music teachers and clinicians:
For wedding ceremonies, they can also provide classical guitar, trumpet and vocal music to make your ceremony music extra special, . . . all part of a total package.
Our clients say it best:
"The guys were amazing; their performance was the highlight of our party. We've had dozens of rave reviews from friends in and out of the music business. The band will DEFINITELY be a part of our next party plan!" --Donna Gregory - MSNBC Correspondent & Anchor
"This band is absolutely incredible! My husband and I got married this past weekend and I could no be happier that we chose BCS Express (6 piece vs 10 piece band) for the music. They played during our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Steve, the manager, MC'd during the wedding, and he was professional and flexible. The ceremony/cocktail hour music was a perfect volume, and the pieces they chose were perfection. The reception was upbeat and fun, and there were always people dancing!! I could not recommend them any higher, I hope to see them at another wedding soon!!" --Bride, via one of our Wedding Wire reviews
"We had BCS Express play our wedding in Wrightsville Beach, NC in September 2012 and they were phenomenal. They were very experienced and professional, and Steve led the wedding announcements great. The music was incredible and we still get compliments on how good the music was two years later! I highly recommend them." Elliot, groom, via one of Wedding Wire reviews
