The Special Edition Band learned our first dance song for us, and it was incredible.

I am honored to provide a reference letter for John Adams and The Special Edition Band. I found them originally on “The Knot” wedding website when I was planning our wedding, which was held on Saturday October 26th, 2019. My now husband and I went to go see them preform after seeing their reviews on “The Knot” at a venue in Addison, and immediately knew The Special Edition Band needed to be the band that we booked for our wedding.
Throughout the entire wedding planning process, John was my main contact for entertainment. He was able to help organize and provide music for all parts of the wedding including pre ceremony seating, the ceremony itself, dinning, and all reception music. Which took a lot of precise timing, organization, patience and it was all executed perfectly.
I would like to elaborate on the “reception” music provided by The Special Edition Band as I still receive compliments on them to this day from the guests at our wedding. Not only was The Special Edition Band impressive in talent and skill but they, without a doubt, know how to work a crowd and make everyone feel special. I will cite three examples of this. First, The Special Edition Band learned our first dance song for us, and it was incredible. It made our dance even more special to have a live band sing while we danced, and it really meant a lot to us that they put in the extra time and effort to learn something so special to us. Second, during the “Shout” rendition one of the vocalists invited one of the groomsmen on stage to sing and dance with the band. He and the rest of the groomsmen thought that was pretty cool and he still talks about “how awesome it was I got to go on stage during y’alls reception.” Lastly, during multiple songs the members of the band came into the audience to interact with the guests that were dancing. Most memorable was when the horns came into the audience and danced with everyone while they were playing- my cousin still tells me how cool and personable that was.
In conclusion, John Adams and The Special Edition Band are an amazing group of talented, kind and professional artists who know how to have a good time and make sure everyone else does too. I cannot stress enough how highly I recommend them to be a preferred vendor and the Band of choice at any venue.
If there is any additional information I can provide or questions I can answer I would be more than happy to talk.
