"Our reception was everything we could've dreamed of and more all thanks to Follow the Sun! While we were exploring our options for a live band we got a recommendation to check out FtS, so we went to see them perform live and we knew right away they were the band for us. They are incredibly talented musicians and the band has great chemistry. They bring great energy and get the crowd going. And that was all just from observing before we even spoke with them regarding booking! FtS goes above and beyond to provide a customized experience. Once we inquired about booking they made the whole process so easy and fun for us. We met to discuss our vision for our day, and they were so accommodating as well as provided great insight for us from their experience with other weddings. They have an amazing set list of songs to choose from. Over the weeks leading up to the wedding, any questions we had they were quick to respond and so kind. We had custom requests with family traditions/songs and FtS were able make it all fit seamlessly into the evening. Our dancefloor was packed all night because of the incredible job the band did. We are so thankful and would highly recommend them to any couple interested in live music for their big day. Special shoutout to Sophie for being so attentive and answering all of our questions, and to Richie for being an INCREDIBLE master of ceremonies handling bridal party introductions and announcements throughout the evening. We didn't have to worry about a thing, you made our night so special and fun. Thank you for everything!'

"Sophie and Ricky and the whole band went above and beyond to prepare for our wedding. The punctuality was always there and we knew during the planning phase that a quick answer was never more than an email away. From the first time we made contact, we knew we were making a good decision by hiring them. Then before we knew it it was the wedding day. The band was there early setting up multiple sounds systems for both the live set and the ceremony/cocktail hour as we had discussed multiple times by that point. Ricky was a lively and fun MC for the formalities. And then it was time for the live set and it all broke loose. I don't know whether it was the crowd we had invited or what but I have NEVER seen a wedding dance floor get so lit up like it did at our event. The stage presence, the musicianship, and the setlist we made from their massive catalog of songs received the highest marks not just from us, but ALL of our guests. Shirts were coming off. High heel shoes were flying across the room from all directions. Old folks were dancing like they were 30 years younger. It was 4 hours of bedlam out there and we were loving every second of it. After the event was over and everyone was cleaning up, our event coordinator for the venue pulled us aside and mentioned that she was so impressed with how professional, fun, and easy to work with Follow The Sun was, especially since it was their first time MC-ing an event at the venue. If you are planning a wedding and want it to get LIVE at your event, we cannot recommend Follow the Sun any more. If you want your wedding that you've worked so hard for to be the biggest party of the year, compromise elsewhere and hire this band over a DJ. Seriously, just do it."

"Follow the Sun is awesome. We have them at all our events. They keep the dance floor packed. Would highly recommend to any."
"Follow the Sun played at our New Year's Eve wedding. The trio performed for the ceremony and the band played for the reception. They took the time to learn a few special songs for my husband and I. They were amazing! We stumbled upon them at Jerzees one night and became groupies! From beginning to end, they were great to work with, unbelievably professional and made our wedding night so special. Our guests loved the group and had a blast dancing well into the new year. We couldn't have picked a better group of people to have play at our wedding. I would highly recommend them for weddings, parties or large celebrations. My husband and I will continue to follow the band. Hope to see them at the plaza this summer! Thanks, Follow the Sun, you rock!"

"We had Follow the Sun at our Wedding, and I must say, they beyond exceeded expectations. I previously saw them live at a bar and I was already very impressed. But, the attentiveness they gave us for our wedding planning and the day of was unbelievable. They made it completely worry free in the planning stages, allowed us to request songs, and communicated very well. As for the show. They performed as good if not better than I remember at the bar I saw them. They had the crowd on the dance floor the entire time. The entire band is a group of really fun people. We were lucky enough to hangout with them after the wedding. My wife and I couldn’t be happier about the entire experience!"

"Where to begin! We could NOT have been happier with our pick of Follow the Sun for our wedding band. Wedding planning is obvi such a stressful process, but they took time out of their day to make sure everything was perfect from start to finish and boy did they deliver. We still get compliments to the day about how great our wedding band was. Their range of being able to perform acoustic stuff to today's hits to our personal faves (such as Wobble), they knocked it out of the park with every song. I can't wait until it's summertime again so we can see them hit the local concert circuit and be able to reminisce about the best day ever. You won't be disappointed! Forever grateful to Follow the Sun"

"Follow the Sun was a dream to work with from beginning to end. We knew we really wanted a live band for our wedding, but the pricing was scary and we were worried about having a smaller variety of music than what a DJ can provide. But we took the plunge with FtS and we're so glad we did!Their rate was so reasonable for what they provide and the quality of music was excellent. You just can't beat live music!
The planning process with them was so easy. They were super attentive, checking in with us every other month leading up to our wedding and they even took the time to meet with us in person and have a sit down meeting to go over final details and timeline for the day. They really cared about getting to know us as a couple and learning what our vibe and musical style as a couple is and our wedding playlist ended up being totally catered to what we wanted for our day! They play a huge variety of music so there was something for every single guest, from the kiddos to the grandparents. They made sure the songs they selected were a great mix of their whole song list but focused on what we really wanted. They provided a song list for us to pick songs from and nix sons we didn't want played and they even let us request a handful of songs we wanted them to play and they nailed them! They had an iPad playlist made to play music for their break and even let our guests come up and request songs they wanted to hear. If they weren't able to play them live, they added them to the break playlist so the music never stopped, it was perfect!
They were interactive, fun and kept everyone on the dance floor all night. I talked to Sophie and Laura when we first decided to have Follow the Sun at our wedding. I have had a song picked out for 10 years prior to my wedding (yes, I'm that girl), and was nervous to ask them to learn it because I knew most people had never heard of it. They were so happy to learn it and it was priceless to have them sing our first dance. Three of the members of the band also do an acoustic act. This was something that we added on to our cocktail hour and ceremony. They played prior to the ceremony starting, as we walked down the aisle, as people left to go to cocktail hour and they played for the entire cocktail hour, as well. We can't wait to see Follow the Sun live again soon and are so grateful for the amazing memories they helped provide on our wedding day! We are lifetime groupies now!"

"Love love love Follow the Sun! We hired them to play our wedding, which was a nerve wracking experience (so much pressure when you have to find and hire live music!), but so worth it in the end because they truly MADE our reception. Not only was the music perfect and their voices amazing (seriously amazing), but they brought great energy and got everyone moving. Perfect addition to our big day"
