What an amazing experience OpenRoad created for this event! The combination of genres performed reflected the entire audience. The crowd was a combination of teens to grandparents and once the dancefloor was cleared you found EVERYONE enjoying themselves. People were practicing their dance moves while the shy ones sang and got their groove on at the table. The crowd was on the dance floor the minute it was cleared for dancing. The timing of the songs with dinner and dancing was on point. I HIGHLY recommend OpenRoad to anyone looking to add character, class, talent and most importantly FUN to their event!

"Open Road" played at my husband's surprise 65th birthday party. They were terrific. They played all the songs I had requested and went above and beyond my expectations. My guests were thrilled by their sound and my husband couldn't have been happier hearing all his favorite songs. I sent an e-mail to our board at Clayton suggesting they consider "Open Road" to play at our Concerts in the Park. I would love to hear them playing in our town. Thank you to all the members of "Open Road" for their hard work and professionalism in making my husbands party GREAT!!

Open Road did an amazing job at our wedding!! All of our guests were dancing the entire night, and even started chanting, "one more song," when our event was wrapping up. Ed and the other members of Open Road were gracious enough to continue playing. Ed was an absolute pleasure to work with and helped tremendously with the planning process. I highly recommend Open Road to anyone looking for a fantastic night with phenomenal live music!!

Open Road was a blast. They came in and rocked out for 3 hours. Everyone at the party had a real good time. Their music is fun, an amazing blend of different styles, all of which make you want to get up and dance. Hope to have them again sometime.

What an awesome band! Everyone at the wedding loved them! Vocals, timing, instrumental solos, all spot on. They really felt the crowd and got everyone dancing, even my parents who NEVER dance! Even though they are not a swing band, they picked out some great swing/waltz songs to perform for us on our request. My fiancé was initially nervous about letting them perform our first dance live since we were choreographing it, but they really nailed the timing and sounded great! I also requested a married couples dance with only a vague idea of how it should work, and they cleaned up my instructions and pulled it off perfectly. To top it off, their fee was very reasonable!

After hiring Open Road, I understand all the positive feedback/ratings and "Top Band in the East Bay" label. You will want Open Road at any event like you would want a pro athlete on your team. They simply know what they're doing. I'm limited to only 675 characters so on to the highlights: All their recommendations from the schedule, songs, crowd involvement were spot on; They absolutely nailed a surprise rap/hip-hop song after I jokingly complained about not having my favorite music. Everyone loved it!; Couples that had DJs at their wedding told me they regret it after hearing Open Road; I saw people dance who I never thought I'd see dancing! Thank you Open Road!

OpenRoad’s high-energy live music was the highlight of our 2013 corporate crab feed dinner dance scholarship fundraiser. With the dance floor full, guests danced next to their tables. Even our high school student volunteers danced with our guests. This was our first ever scholarship fundraiser co-hosted by three of our Employee Resource Groups. OpenRoad’s “38 friends of the band” bought tickets to see them perform generating over $2,100. After reviewing our net proceeds our ERG's agreed to do this event again on 3-1-14. We booked OpenRoad a year in advance to help us promote next year’s event! I would highly recommend OpenRoad to help make any event a success!

Thank you OpenRoad for a fantastic evening! What a great band, everyone was rocking and just flat out enjoying themselves. We hired OpenRoad for the final night of a customer appreciation meeting. While the group has not had a band or dancing in the past, it didn't take long before people were out on the dance floor having a great time! The band members were so easy to work with and wanted to make sure our needs were met. You won't be disappointed if you go with OpenRoad!
