Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice Awards

We would like to express our appreciation for our amazing couples, clients, and fellow vendors from WeddingWire. We LOVE being a part of some incredible events and creating amazing memories. Our couples enthusiasm makes us feel incredibly lucky to be doing what we do! Their reviews have allowed us to be recognized by WeddingWire’s Couples’ Choice Awards year after year. According to WeddingWire, the Couples’ Choice Awards “recognize local wedding professionals who demonstrate excellence in quality, service, responsiveness, and professionalism.” And now we’re blushing! We’ve shared a few of our favorite reviews below.

We had an amazing experience working with Silver Arrow Band for our Rhode Island wedding. We greatly appreciated the comprehensive website the band uses, which was easy to use and helped us stay organized for the night. We purchased a 5 piece band and the light kit and loved the way everything looked! They allowed us to play our own playlist during cocktail hour through their speakers and seamlessly transitioned us to a dinner playlist. They did a great job helping our friend emcee the night and filling in on announcements when needed. The band was outstanding and very talented! They played a great selection of music based on our preferences, were kind and easy to work with and kept the party going all night! Very rarely have I seen so many people still on the dance floor at the last song! We received many sincere compliments after our wedding. They were easy and professional to work with. We are so happy we booked this band, they made our reception so fun and memorable.

We first hired the Silver Arrow Band in 2019. Throughout two postponements and a bride (me) that didn’t know the first thing about what it meant to hire musicians/a DJ, they were entirely supportive and accommodating. My contact, was amazing, communicative, and helpful across the TWO YEARS!

We had live music through the Silver Arrow Band for our ceremony and cocktail hour. They were so helpful as she worked with me to choose the best types/number of musicians to achieve my vision. I was so impressed that they were able to learn my chosen songs (maybe this is par for the course — but I just thought it was so cool that I was able to throw songs out there, and they could play them beautifully!).

On the day, the live music was beautiful and the DJ choices were top-notch. We were a small crew, but there was fairly consistent dancing across the age ranges! It was such a wonderful night, and a fun party — in large part due to the music!

I highly recommend the Silver Arrow Band for both live music and MC/DJ services!!!

Hire Silver Arrow and don’t look back.

This band went above and beyond all expectations. We hired them for a ceremony pianist (who everyone raved about, and who brought me to tears with perfect renditions of our very particular song requests), a cocktail jazz trio (which we missed due to photos but heard was incredible), and a seven piece for our 5 hour cocktail (no plated dinner) reception. They also brought lighting for themselves and the dance floor. My dad couldn’t stop interrupting their breaks to compliment them. My husband and I kept pausing during the night and saying “holy crap THEY ARE SO GOOD!!!”

The band was the absolute highlight of our wedding, and the planning leading up made me nervous only because it seemed too good to be true. Everything was so easy and so easy to customize to exactly what we wanted the day and night to be. I thought no way was this going to go as smoothly as it seemed but in the end, from the ceremony music to the cocktail hour to the reception and the hanging out with the band members at our after party, the band was perfect in every way. We would change absolutely nothing about the experience.

They learned six new songs for us and played each perfectly. They read the room and engaged our guests all night. No one wanted to leave the dance floor. The lead singer checked in with me (the bride) and let me know where we were at in my timeline and let me know they could adjust if I needed more or less time for anything like speeches and special dances. THE SAXOPHONE PLAYER HOLY COW! He played two saxophones AT THE SAME TIME and mixed up the dance floor in a brief and fun Love Train conga line, which turns out can be cool if done just right? The lead singer nailed our first dance to a Jennifer Hudson song which we had mentally prepared to be “not as good as the recording” as we practiced a fast paced foxtrot in rehearsals, but dammit if she didn’t make it utter perfection in every way.

The pianist was the gem of the day, making everyone cry during our processional and then jamming out at night. The trombone player brought the brass sound we wanted for our big bandstand cocktail reception. The bass player kept the night grooving and made every song sound even better than the demo CD, and the drummer kept the energy high, and broke a drumstick in the hard core partying. That drumstick is now going to be kept in our wedding keepsakes, as it’s a reminder of our favorite vendor and part of the day. And the lead guitarist/second lead singer…he sang Garth Brooks and Frank Sinatra and everything in between and if you closed your eyes you would’ve thought the original singers were in the room with us.

I could go on and on (as my guests and I all have since our wedding day). Silver Arrow was our biggest expense after food and alcohol, which was a little scary having never seen them live when we booked, but I would pay that money over and over again if it meant I could relive the bliss that was our wedding dance floor.

If you are dancers and have a guest list full of dancers and want to spend the night dancing, Silver Arrow is your must-book. Plan your wedding around them. Have no hesitation, and have an amazing wedding just like we did ❤️

Silver Arrow Band was incredible. I cannot even count how many compliments we received because the band was electric. They learned all music we provided before hand and made it sound effortless. Our producer was so friendly, professional, and reassuring during the planning process. I wish we could plan a whole other wedding to just dance to Silver Arrow Band all night long again. We hired a 9-piece band. The horns were amazing and having two singers definitely allowed us to have more music variety. Our guest were on the dance floor all night. They’re really special.

If you are looking for an incredible night of singing, dancing, and endless joy, book Silver Arrow Band today. Silver Arrow made our wedding a night to remember!

When we were originally planning our wedding, we knew one of the most important aspects of the night was live music and endless dancing. Silver Arrow knocked it out of the park! We worked with our producer throughout our planning – and replanning since we had to postpone due to the pandemic – and he was so incredibly helpful and responsive throughout a difficult time of unknown. It was easy to postpone and rebook and we thank them for being so flexible with us.

In the lead up to our wedding, he helped us create a timeline and schedule of the night that worked within our own vision, and it created the most perfect flow of the evening. Our feet were hurting so much the next day – the most perfect evidence for a night of endless dancing thanks to the most talented group of musicians!

Book Silver Arrow Band today if you are looking for a memorable wedding reception with nonstop dancing!

There are few wedding elements upon which the entire event rests – and the band/music is one of them. We absolutely loved our experience with the Silver Arrow Band and encourage anyone looking for/considering a wedding band to contact them. They are professional, organized, and very good at what they do. The Silver Arrow Band is the silver arrow to a great wedding experience
