About
Back on The Bash after a 2 year absence. Hello Again Brides, Grooms and Event Planners! 2020 has been challenging - let's hope the music plays on in 2021!

We're a 3-6 piece cover band (w/ saxophone and based on what you request) specializing in wedding receptions and corporate events. Look no further. Our music is mostly classic rock of the danceable variety - but we're willing to learn a tune for you and we try to learn a few top 40 pop and country tunes as well. We can play all your top 40 favorites on our band breaks through our PA to keep the party rockin.

Our quote generally includes: 4 hours of dance music with two 15 minute band breaks; 45 minutes of free live jazz during the cocktail hour; EmCee your evening; work closely with you on special dances, announcements; use of our wireless mics for speeches, presentations; introductory meeting or call to go over all the things you want/don't want, and to discuss our unique options; music to be played through our PA on our band breaks, and coordination with your event planner.

Our promo video and other videos? That's us - that's how we sound - no lip-sync'ing to a fancy, shmancy unrealistic promo video production. You get what you see and hear - dance music and professional level musicianship from the first email to the last dance.

We show up prepared and on time.

Ceremony Music - Yes (Extra). Cocktail Hour Live Jazz - Yes. Reception Dance music - of course.

THE KNOT REVIEW "Bob and his musicians were absolutely above and beyond amazing! Not only were they amazing performers to listen to they were extremely professional. EVERYTHING they did EVERYTHING we requested of them was done in the grace and class that would be expected from such amazing performers. Thank you so very much Bob and your band for EVERYTHING you did to make our daughter and son-in-laws wedding day so extremely special. The music was loved by ALL ages and Bob was right when he said people may dance during cocktail hour, well he was right, we did!! Thank you again so very much. Absolutely one of our greatest decisions to hire Whoz Playing!!!!!" Review by Judy B. FROM LA CROSSE, WI ON 7/7/2018

REVIEWS:

WEDDING WIRE REVIEW "Energetic, kept us on schedule and so fun! Everyone enjoyed the band, from the young crowd to our parents and grandparents. They were great with communicating with us and learned a few songs from our list just for us! We highly recommend Whoz Playing for any event, especially your wedding! Fun and talented group!" Sent on 08/23/2019 Kara S, married on 08/03/2019. Rating on Wedding Wire 5.0 out of 5.0

THE KNOT REVIEW "Wow. These guys were just wow. I found them online after going through several other band sites who had complex contracts, much higher pricing, etc. I was so pleased with their one page contract, as well as the fact that I could cover my ceremony and reception music all from one place, and their overall sound was so great (only listened to their examples online) I booked them fairly quickly. We never met in person but the band's organizer, Bob, reached out and kept in touch about our special day. We had several thorough phone conversations and lots of emails back and forth with specifics for details and when I explained the song I wished for the processional, he said it would be no trouble for them to re-compose and LEARN a 1951 Disney song from Alice in Wonderland so I could have my perfect day. It was such a magical moment, to hear "A Golden Afternoon" being played on the most beautiful afternoon! They even dressed up to fit our fun theme and looked darn good too! It was the most magical day of my life and these guys helped with that. Thank you SO, SO much, to the gents of Whoz Playing! Love to the guys, thanks again!" Jenn K! Wedding 8/13/18 Iowa
