The Sidewinders were absolutely fantastic for our wedding- they arrived, set up, and began playing on time. Every one of our guests loved the music and danced their butts off. Chris and the rest of the band were super accommodating and professional throughout the whole experience. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for a fun, professional, and overall awesome band for their wedding or other event.

Loved this band for my corporate event! I would absolutely book them again. They were on time, professional, flexible in terms of having to start a little later than scheduled and most importantly, the music was great!

The Sidewinders performed at our company holiday party last Friday and they were fantastic. Incredibly professional, arrived on time, very friendly. Most importantly, they put on a great show. Everyone I spoke to throughout the evening kept remarking, "wow, this is a great band!" They truly made the night a success.

The Sidewinders truly helped make our wedding- I am so glad that we found them via Gigmasters! I hired them based upon their reviews and audio/video samples. They had the sound, look and musical diversity we were looking for. Zaid, both a band member and the manager, kept in contact with me throughout the process up until the event. I was able to request two songs for them to learn and play, and I cannot convey enough, how much of an AMAZING job they did on those songs. Sidewinders were professional, and and arrived an hour before their scheduled time!

The Sidewinders were wonderful! They were more than willing to work with us to make sure we had the right playlist. Zaid even came to visit me at the office for a brief meeting. They were so versatile! They offered to play different types of music from jazz to motown to salsa. They stayed late when the party was still hopping and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the music. I hope that I have the opportunity to hire them again! Thank you so much for making the Hardesty & Hanover 120th Anniversary Party a great success!

The Sidewinders were extremely professional and talented. They played at the cocktail hour of our wedding. They provided excellent background music for that time period. They met with us before our wedding and discussed our musical tastes. They were able to tailor their set to our tastes and did so very well. We would highly recommend them and will hire them for future events.
