FUN, FUN, FUN!!! If you want more than just fantastic musicianship, all your favorite songs and exceptional versatility for your event entertainment, Half Pack LIVE!!! is your answer. They're well known for their outstanding swing shows, but what most people don't know is all the "other" stuff they do: Journey, Stevie Wonder, Maroon 5, Cee Lo Green, Michael Buble--1960's through today! If you want wedding or event entertainment that covers a broad spectrum of music, Half Pack LIVE!!! is the right decision. Everyone loves to hear the classics from Sinatra and his pals early in the event - but later, if your guests want something more "contemporary," The Pack has your back!

The Pack has performed scores of weddings, private parties and corporate events and the focus is to make you shine and YOUR EVENT the best possible. We have already done this a jillion times (this is a technical term, don't get hung up on it...) so you can rely on our experience and you can breathe a sigh of relief.

The band configuration is flexible to fit any size venue or budget. From a trio all the way up to a 8-piece band with horns and anything in between, "The Pack" has just the right answer for whatever your event requires.

Half Pack LIVE!!! knows the ropes well. Their hundreds of performances include scores of weddings of every imaginable kind, and a multitude of corporate and private parties and events. They are true professionals in every way: coordinating details with your venue/facility, gaining a detailed and clear understanding of your hopes and expectations, planning just the right set list specifically for you and your guests... you'll be relieved and confidently assured that they really do consider and handle all the "little" things that make an event - YOUR event - a success.

If you've read their reviews, you already know how happy their past (and repeat) clients are. Professional, prepared, punctual and pleasant, their main goal is to create a very special and memorable experience for you and your guests.

Wow! I am so glad we found Half-Pack Live! Rachael was so easy to work with, and coordinated everything. We ended up going for the eight piece jazz band, which I thought was extremely reasonable for the price we paid. Everyone raved all night about how amazing the band was. They had a great energy and really entertained our guests. Even the guests that weren't dancers just loved listening to them. It was also nice to have something that all generations loved, not just our college aged friends. I would highly recommend Half-Pack live. They were a huge wow factor to our wedding and are worth every penny!

Working with Half-pack live was awesome from the very start. Rachael was very quick to respond and accommodating of all my emails, requests and needs. She even met up with me over lunch to discuss the details of my needs. They were flexible in catering to my request for a 6 piece band, the list of my music wish list, and were very thoughtful with their recommendations and advice for song choices and instruments. The band showed up on time, well dressed, and sounded incredible. All my guests enjoyed them so much. I really am so glad that they were a part of my wedding!! Definitely recommend them for any event. They made me want to get married all over again!

Half Pack Live WAS FANTASTIC! They were hands down the best live band I have heard! My husband and I booked them for our wedding, us and our guests were blown away. They had fantastic song selection and even learned 3 new songs for us. They were super easy to communicate with and were very professional. They showed up on time, got set up no issues, they even were the MCs for the wedding and did a great job. They picked up on the mood of the guests and switched music to accommodate the situation. Everyone danced, and stayed to the end dancing. I was so impressed! I HIGHLY recommend to book Half Pack Live for you wedding/party/event! They are a truly wonderful group!

We held a party for my wife's birthday party and decided to hire a live band for some dancing. My experience with party planning and hiring is _very_ limited but Rachael made everything easy. It was one large piece of the party puzzle that I didn't have to worry about. All I really had to do what tell them which area to setup in and everything else just happened. I hadn't thought about having a singer but I'm glad they have one. He had some amazing vocals. He also helped with some MC work when needed. The whole band pieced together nicely. The short answer is recorded music really has nothing on a live band like Half Pack Live.

Thanks again, HPL! The night of the performance went off without a hitch. The band was promptly set up and started right on time. Our guests were absolutely blown away by the superb musicianship. They had the volume perfect throughout and people were able to talk and mingle. The band’s breaks provided ample time for us to have a few toasts and show some photos, and as the night progressed, the music kept the party fun and lively. We wouldn’t hesitate for a minute to recommend them or book them again for a special occasion.

This was my first time hiring a band for an event but Rachael worked with me to figure out how much time we should have recorded music vs how long the band should play. She helped me to create a set list for the band and completely handled the recorded music, which was very nice. Once the band started playing, it was amazing! These guys really are great! I would absolutely work with them again and would highly recommend them to others.

We hired Half Pack Live for our New Year's Eve Wedding. We love the old standards and Motown. They performed excellently - the guests loved the music and they had them on the floor all night! I had many guests tell me it was the best party they had been to in years and I know this band was a big part of the fun! I would recommend them to anyone.

My husband and I felt that having live music at our wedding reception was a priority, and I am so glad that we found Half-Pack live. Half pack live looks and sounds even better than the videos that are offered through GigMasters website for your viewing. It was very easy to communicate with lead band member Rachael regarding details, and the special requests turned out better than I could have imagined. We had the wedding of our dreams thanks to Half Pack Live!

We presented Half Pack Live with a movie theme for our Christmas party. They took the idea and turned into a mini production that made you feel like you were in the movie. They truly went over and beyond what was expected of them and delivered one of the best performances of the year here. They have a rich sound and great personality to match any environment. Thank you Half Pack Live for making the evening so special and memorable for our residents.
