‘Words cannot begin to describe how amazing The Dan Rafferty Band is!! The dance floor was literally packed the entire night, which I’ve never seen at a wedding. Derek went out of his way to come up to my groom and I throughout the night to make sure that everything was going exactly how we’d envisioned it. They played music that EVERYONE enjoys – old, new, playful, fun, upbeat hits. It was literally the most perfect evening because of this band 😉 I can’t even count how many people asked me for the name of the band after the reception. They are worth every penny!! We almost couldn’t even get people off the dance floor to go do the sparkler send off because everyone was having such a great time. Simple the best band ever. Highly recommend.’Chrissy and Ethan, 10/3/15
‘The Dan Rafferty Band was one of the BEST decisions and vendors of our entire wedding. They truly made our night and took the reception to another level. E3 was so amazing to work with throughout the entire process — very organized and responsive. They seriously brought the house down. So many people came up to me and said this was the best wedding ever because of the band. One friend said she felt like she was at a concert. They are so far beyond your typical wedding band. And go for the horns, too :)’Kaitlin & Daniel, 9/26/15
“We’ve used E3 Detroit for our company events for the past 4 years. Their creative ideas and support have made the events a huge success! The live bands they’ve provided have absolutely made the party every year.”Karen M, Shift Digital
‘I remember looking up at the band and thinking.. Seriously? This is our wedding? How awesome are we?! Do it, spend the money.. People will be talking about your wedding for years to come.’Lauren & Patrick, 10/18/14
‘The only negative thing I can say about First Call at the two events we’ve done thus far is that they were over way too fast. Both events we’ve had have been just terrific experiences. We’ve had nothing but real positive feedback.’Chuck H, Holzman Corkery, PLLC
