Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 13, 2019From Chicago, IL

They absolutely crushed it! It was the best live band performance I've ever experienced at a wedding and will gladly and willfully recommend them to everyone. Great MCing, fantastic music and a stunning atmosphere. Front to back absolutely amazing

WeddingReviewed on July 9, 2017From Glen Arbor, MI

The Special 20s are absolutely FANTASTIC. Read the room expertly, kept the energy high without wiping everbody out, MCed the announcements with grace (on short notice too!), and and are serious talents. If you aren't sure about the idea of a 50s rock/blues band (nerdy, outdated, etc.) I urge you to reconsider and book this group. All people could talk about after my wedding was the Special 20s. MADE my reception without a shadow of a doubt.
