Private PartyReviewed on April 18, 2021From Hilton Head, SC

Rider was great! All band members were extremely professional from beginning to end. They arrived early to set up and started on time. They were very talented musicians and singers and were charismatic and engaging with our family throughout the evening. I'd highly recommend the band to friends and family visiting the region.

WeddingReviewed on March 13, 2021From Tallahassee, FL

Highly recommend. We hired the group for my daughters wedding. Communication was excellent from the time we made initial contact. There were no music faux pas during the ceremony, they played the songs we requested and the band is very, very good. They had people dancing from the time they started playing and kept music going while they broke down their equipment. At one point they had the bride on stage. A good band can make or break an event and in this case they out performed our expectations. We had many compliments from our guests as to how great they were.
