The Knot Best of Weddings Reviews: 2021 Wrap
We love being a part of The Knot community, so to start off the New Year of 2022, we would like to express our appreciation for our amazing couples, clients, and fellow vendors who got us through 2021.
We were able to be a part of some incredible events and create amazing memories. The enthusiasm from both vendors and clients helps continue doing what we love doing, and helps boost us into The Knot Hall of Fame (!!) We feel incredibly lucky to kick off the New Year with a pep in our step and hope for many love stories ahead! With that spirit, we’d like to share some of our favorite reviews from the past year.
My husband and I saw Silver Arrow at another wedding before we were even engaged, but we knew at that moment we wanted them for our wedding and it was the best decision we made. Leading up to our day, our coordinator was great to work with. On our wedding day, the band powered through the fact that there was no power at our venue for the first 15 mins of cocktail hour, and they graciously agreed to stay a bit later as the venue was extending our reception. The dance floor was PACKED all night long, the music was amazing, and people cannot stop telling us how much fun they had. And you cannot beat the price!!Amanda A.
Wow. Just wow. We saw Silver Arrow Band at a showcase and knew they were the band for us immediately. We hired a 10-piece band with horn section and did not regret it for a second. Our producer was an amazing communicator throughout and had a few calls with us to pick our brains and find out what kinds of music we liked and didn’t. We were admittedly pretty specific about what we wanted (and didn’t want) and she was all for it. On wedding night, our emcee and one of the lead singers was fantastic! She kept the crowd loose and having fun. She nailed every detail and checked in with us now and then to make sure everything went according to plan, which it did 100% of the time. And then there was the music. Sweet lord, they killed it. The band was the life of the party and the song choices were phenomenal. They read the crowd perfectly and seemed to read our minds as to what songs to play. It’s been almost a month since our wedding and our guests are still talking about how good the band was and how much fun they had on the dance floor. We cannot recommend them enough! They were a huge reason why our wedding was the best night of our lives. Choose them and don’t look back! Thanks, Silver Arrow Band!Kevin R.
Because of the pandemic we hired The Silver Arrow Band sight unseen at the recommendation of our planner. While I would never recommend anyone ever do that, we were so lucky because Silver Arrow Band is AWESOME! Not only did our coordinator provide helpful planning tools but he was super supportive and easy to work with when we had to change our date because the venue double-booked. I originally wanted a DJ to help keep costs down. While I am sure we would still have had a great time, I know that Silver Arrow Band made the night memorable. Repeatedly, our guests came up to me and my partner during the evening to tell us that the band was great; and their performance directly contributed to a truly fun and joyful experience. The band was also very willing to participate in the safety measures that we implemented for the night, even though we were quite strict. I give The Silver Arrow Band a 10/10, Two Thumbs Up, First Place, and all the accolades.Elizabeth S.
Silver Arrow Band are the most fantastic, sweetest, and most talented individuals. We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them for our wedding. Since day one our producer has been extremely accommodating and patient. He never missed a call or email – and there were plenty from us – and always reassured me that our wedding ceremony would go as seamlessly as it did. They played beautifully; our guests are still raving about how wonderfully talented they are. They also went above the ask and entertained our 3-year-old cousin during cocktail hour with Disney music (she’s obsessed with princesses). It’s sweet touches like that reflect how wonderful and big-hearted they are. If you are considering Silver Arrow Band, you most definitely won’t regret it. Of all the decisions we made for our wedding day, hiring them was one of our best ones and we’re sure it will be yours as well.Karen C.
If you’re reading this then stop your search right now, do yourself a favor, and just hire this band. It will be the best decision you make with your event. Working with Silver Arrow Band couldn’t have been better. Our producer was an absolute pleasure and pro to work with – she’ll reduce stress in your planning at every step, she’ll tailor the experience to exactly what you what, and she’ll make sure the event itself is something your guests will not stop raving about. Planning a wedding during the pandemic wasn’t easy – we had to switch venues at the last second, drastically change the guest count, alter the size of the band, reconfigure which rooms were going to have speakers/mics, and so much more. But yet she handled all of it in stride and pulled it off perfectly. Every time we spoke with her was followed by a deep sigh of relief from us as she would just say “no problem at all – let’s make it happen!” We had a prep call a week before and sent a list of requested songs. Honestly I don’t know how any set of humans can be a walking juke box that knows literally every single song we asked them to consider playing. On top of that, here were some of our more obscure requests for the night: 1. Can you add a saxophone last-minute? Oh and can they walk around in the crowd and get everyone really into it? (oh they did…and having a circle of people dancing around a saxophone solo in the middle of the dance floor is highly recommended) 2. I know we’re going for an old-school Frank Sinatra vibe for the night, but can you also somehow throw in some rap songs? (She said they don’t really do rap, but then proceeded to put on a performance that could have ended Eminem’s career) 3. Don’t stick too close to our list – can you read the crowd and just play what you think is best? (HIGHLY recommend letting them do this – don’t pigeonhole them into an exact setlist – give them guidance and let them run with it. They are absolute professionals that can see what the crowd is feeling, and they’ll play the exact right songs at the exact right time while still sticking to the overall feel you want for the night.) The performance itself was beyond flawless. I had guests coming up to me all night saying they had never heard this great of a band at a wedding. And I agree. I can’t say enough good things about Silver Arrow Band. You guys made our night so memorable and perfect.
