Absolutely incredible! Saffire Express exceeded ANY expectations we had for keeping our guests dancing at our wedding! From the beginning, they were attentive - quickly responding to emails and phone calls. As the date drew closer, they were extremely prepared - anticipating issues BEFORE they could arise. They set up a day early, ensuring that the day would go smoothly. Furthermore, they took only one break, keeping our guests dancing, dancing, dancing. You should see the pictures! Of the compliments I received for our wedding - Saffire Express got by far the most! I HIGHLY recommend Saffire Express! I would hire them in second for any other event!

I had not heard them in person before our wedding & was a tiny nervous. I had no reason to be! We didn't have alcohol and still everyone was up and dancing all night. They added props like tambourines and hats for the guests to use. One of the kids even was up "playing" an inflatable guitar with them. Sam & Dana are so sweet and professional. They drove up before the event to scope it out even though it is a 1.5-2 hour drive. I was having a problem with my emails going through so we texted instead. They were accommodating and welcoming and made our day so special. I can't believe the service and talent we got for the price! THANK YOU! - Hanna & Dan

Saffire Express Band was the perfect choice for our wedding. They were professional and kept in contact with us making sure all our requests were fulfilled, they even learned our first dance song! At the wedding they took control and not only acted as MC to keep the night moving but once the dancing started they really kept the party going! They have a ton of talent and were the played the perfect mix! They came out into the crowd and brought props to share which was so much fun for everyone! This band is amazing and we would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fantastic wedding band!!

I'm SO happy that I was able to book Saffire Express for our Church festival! They are such an amazingly fun band! The kids loved it, especially with all the 'swag' that was given out. The adults enjoyed it just as much. The dance floor was packed with everyone having a total blast. Thank you Saffire Express! See you next year!!

Best band ever! Everyone tells us "That band rocked!" They took our reception to the next level and our guests will remember it forever. We thought they sounded good in recordings, but WOW they sound even better in person! Great stage presence! Tons of variety! Several great vocalists! Awesome horn section! Rockin drummer! We were blown away. We worried a band might not MC as well as a DJ, but Saffire did this better than we've ever seen a DJ do it. If you can't decide who to hire, choose them for that alone. They went over the top by learning new songs, allowing the bride's father and groom to sing with them and by inviting us to rehearsals. Hire them!

We hired the Saffire Express band to play for our daughter's grad party. Sam, Dana, and the whole band were so great all night. Everyone enjoyed their music so much. They sang all our favorites from their list and Dana interacted with the crowd in such a fun and entertaining way. She had people sing with her and passed out cute gifts to the audience and kids! Everyone had a great time dancing! Overall it was a fun-filled night! Mary

Saffire Express was awesome! They catered their music sets to fit our Reunion and everyone raved about the band! They interacted a lot with the audience and were so much fun! They had a huge variety of music with great vocals! They were very professional and attentive to detail-met with us several times to help organize the event and everything was ready to go when we walked in the door-I had to get some of their cards to hand out because everyone wanted to know who they were!They made our Reunion the best one yet-I would highly recommend them!
