Derek and team are amazing!! Derek was great to work with the entire process, even helping us navigate our postponement due to COVID. DRB rocked the night and made our wedding the most perfect night of our lives! We can never thank you enough!Jeff & Elizabeth, 9/18/20

Still coming down from the high of the wedding! You guys are the absolute BEST! I can’t say enough good things about you. The DRB truly made my wedding the one my dreams were made of. The band was the first thing I booked and really the main thing I cared about and you guys far exceeded my expectations. I can’t thank you guys enough! You made dealing with this pandemic easy and I felt confident things would work out. You relived a lot of pressure.Daniel & Jaimie Thomson, 8/29/20

We were so happy with our experience with the Dan Rafferty Band. They are the absolute best. Derek was so amazing to work with. He was so good with us leading up to the wedding getting all of the details and making sure he knew what we wanted. The day of our wedding was perfect. Everything ran so smooth and the band was incredible. Derek went above and beyond for us and we are so grateful!Robb + Chelsea, 5/4/19

They were above and beyond anything we expected for our daughter’s wedding! Coming into cocktail hour and hearing that lobby rockin’ the way it was – it was TERRIFIC! Everyone out there dancing before dinner was absolutely the greatest. Please thank the band from the bottom of my heart for making our wedding the best! A big thank you to every member of the band – they all played a part in making it perfect!Judi, mother-of-the-bride, 10/19/19

Dan Rafferty Band was amazing!!! They were a one stop shop with Derek handling the sound for our ceremony, the jazz trio for cocktail hour and the band killing it during the reception -- the dance floor was packed all night! Couldn't recommend them more. Derek and Allison were great with answering questions and getting meetings set up. They far exceeded our expectations!Bradley & Megan, 9/14/19

FANTASTIC! Erin was SUPER personable, worked well with us to put together an amazing but flexible playlist and kept the crowd going all night. We used a 3 piece ensemble during cocktail hour and they too were fantastic! Cannot recommend enough. Very reasonably priced, extremely attentive throughout the entire process, and have a full suite of options for all your music and sound needs.Erin + Evan, 5/4/19

We were lucky enough to snag the First Call Crew for our wedding, and Erin and the band were AMAZING! They performed our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception music. With these guys, you're getting so much more than a band - they are pure entertainment, amazing voices, so much fun. People are still telling me how much they loved this band. Even better, during the planning process, Erin was so helpful in crafting the timeline and making sure we enjoyed every minute of their time. We didn't want the night to end! Highly recommended!Kevin + Rebecca, 9/7/19

Having the best band was our #1 priority for our wedding. E3 Detroit kept our dance floor packed all night long and made it a night we will never forget. Our wedding guests are still raving about them. Derek was awesome to work with and a true crowd pleaser! Best night ever!Brett & Stephanie, 8/17/19

I saw The Dan Rafferty Band a few different times as a guest at other weddings and knew we just had to have them! What I love most is I could trust that they knew what to play and that they would keep my guests on the dance floor. I did not have to worry about putting together a list of music. One of my biggest fears on the wedding day was no one being on the dance floor. I knew with them as my band I would not have to worry about this. If you pick The Dan Rafferty Band you will not regret it!Matthew + Amanda, 4/13/19

We want to thank the First Call crew for a fantastic performance at our wedding. We also really appreciate your attention to detail and planning prior to the event to help ensure everything went smoothly. The day was everything we dreamt of and we're thrilled you were a part of it.Rebecca + Robert, 10/19/19

I can not say enough good things about The Dan Rafferty Band. They 100% made our party. Derek is an amazing singer and MC. They kept the night moving and played all the right stuff. For future brides--live music is the key to an amazing wedding!Colin + Lauren, 12/13/18

The Dan Rafferty Band was an absolute must have for our wedding - we actually changed our initial date to ensure we could get them. We have been to a handful of family weddings where the DRB played, and they always do an incredible job. Derek and the whole band are energetic and so talented, they make the time truly unforgettable. We received comments from family and friends for months about how great the band was - truly the BEST.Daniel + Kiley, 10/13/18

Selecting First Call for our wedding was truly the best decision we made. They were so talented, fun and kept the dance floor packed all night long. They interacted so well with the crowd, it made for such an unforgettable experience. Erin was so great to work with -- she made the planning process so fun and stress free. We <3 First Call!David + Kayla, 10/6/18
