The discovery process is your opportunity to learn about E3 and our bands prior to your first contact with us. We’ve provided info via this website and our Facebook, Instagram and YouTube pages. We want you to see us, hear us and learn everything you need to feel comfortable booking with us. You have many choices, and we want to make it as easy as possible to choose us to provide entertainment for your event!!

Once we’ve finalized the agreements, it’s time to become friends and start preparing for your big day. We encourage you to come out to our many public appearances. Check our online calendar for upcoming dates. We’ll get to know you better and learn more about what types of music you like, songs that get you dancing and a few tidbits of info we can use to make your event more unique and of course FUN!

About a month prior to your event, we’ll set up a final meeting to discuss all the details. This meeting is extremely important as it allows us to walk through each element of the event and determine how we’ll handle them. We’ll discuss which songs to play, the flow of events, and anything unique you need us to know. Coming out of this meeting, we’ll have everything we need to come in and do a spectacular job for you!

Obviously the biggest piece to the whole process is the actual performance. Our bands are made up of extremely professional and experienced musicians and performers who take great pride in putting out the best possible show each and every time we take the stage. You will get nothing short of our full, 110% effort from the first note to the last.

After our performance, it is important for us to get feedback from our clients so we can make sure we lived up to the expectations you had for us. If there are any other opportunities to perform for you, we hope there is no hesitation or doubt in your mind about booking us again!


DRB was the best part of our wedding! We had a blast dancing the night away to their music. Our guest talked about them for weeks after the wedding. We would hire them again in a heart beat…worth every penny!Jacob & Jennifer, 9/22/17
I am so happy we chose First Call to run our wedding! I loved how Erin made the effort to learn name pronunciations – things like that are what separate you from other vendors. First Call was a spectacular decision and Wade and I could not be happier with our selection. You handled our crazy energetic crowd perfectly!Wade & Megan, 9/16/17
We spent quite a bit of time looking for the right band for our wedding, we wanted our wedding to be a celebration, we wanted people to enjoy themselves, we wanted energy, we wanted people dancing. The Dan Rafferty Band exceeded our already high expectations. I couldn’t have a higher regard for the bands preparation, professionalism, and for their sheer talent at what they do.Colin & Kristen, 8/26/17
Amazing Band, absolutely lived up to their reputation. It was obvious Derek 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. The whole band was incredibly professional and talented.Katie & Joe, 5/5/17
We had First Call play our wedding this past spring. Erin was fantastic as an MC and the band completely exceeded our expectations. Our guests were very impressed by the two vocalists and the sax and the band was very versatile and high energy. 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
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. 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. They’re the best there is. End of story. Thank you so much DRB. You MADE our wedding.Dan & Kristin, 9/12/15
