Amazing Band, absolutely lived up to their reputation. Derek was able to work up a set list specific to us that included an incredible range of music fulfilling the wide spectrum of our interests and requests we brought up in our pre-wedding meeting. It was obvious he had listened intently, digested our information, and worked hard to create a set of music that would keep our guests dancing. He was great as an MC, but didn’t overuse the mic, keeping the focus very much on the music and the guests. The whole band was incredibly professional and talented. I’m very pleased with our choice to use them, and we continue to get great feedback from our guests.Katie & Joe, 5/5/17
LOOK NO FURTHER. This is the BEST wedding band in metro Detroit, in Michigan, in the entire United States, maybe even the world – but I haven’t done my research that far to say for sure 🙂 . We’ve been to weddings with bands, djs, etc. and none of them even touch how great the DRB is. Our dance floor was packed from start to end, they executed flawlessly, showed up on time, performed without any technical glitches, and killed it. Derek is the best MC you’ll ever encounter. He pours his heart and soul into everything he does as does the rest of the band. Every single guest at my wedding commented on how amazing they were. I could go on for days, but I’ll stop right there. They’re the best there is. End of story. Thank you so much DRB. You MADE our wedding.Dan & Kristin, 9/12/15
We had First Call play our wedding this past spring at Planterra Conservatory. Erin was fantastic as an MC for the reception and the band completely exceeded our expectations. They kept it lively the whole night and knew how to read the crowd. Our guests were very impressed by the two vocalists and the sax – the solos were great – and the band was very versatile and high energy. We received many compliments from both our older and younger guests. We’ve both been to about 30 weddings and First Call gave one of the best performances we’ve seen. We would highly recommend them and can’t say enough good things.Adam & Christina, 4/29/17
Derek and the team went above and beyond to make our wedding incredible. Derek was the perfect MC, and spent time ahead of time making sure he was perfectly prepared. The band is incredible – as a musician and as an inveterate researcher, I can honestly say they were by far the best of the many bands we listened toMichael & Chelsea, 5/13/17
Our guests loved the DRB! We got more compliments on the DRB than any other aspect of our wedding! They were fun and kept the party going! As a bride, I appreciated they way they personalized their performance to our personalities and the “feel” we wanted for our wedding day. They took the time to get to know us in advance and it showed throughout the wedding. I highly recommend the DRB!Dan & Abbie, 12/17/16
The Dan Rafferty Band was super great, and they made a great impression on our guests. A couple guests who were friends of my parents got their contact info in case their kids have a wedding in the area and need a band! The Michael Jackson-Prince compilation was a favorite. They were also great to converse with leading up to the wedding with regards to our preferred songs. I highly recommend DRB for your wedding!Joe & Courtney, 4/22/17
