We had Center Stage Band for our wedding last night and they really knocked it out of the park!! Once we booked them they really took care of us and made sure the whole process was painless. Joe was very easy to get in contact with and responded to any questions quickly. Besides being the least stressful part of our day, they really had people cutting a rug on the dance floor!! I highly recommend this band - you won't be disappointed!!

Our reception was more than I could have ever imagined! Center Stage was so awesome throughout our whole experience. Joe was always responsive and they even learned a song that I really wanted them to play! Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night long and everything was just perfect. Everyone loved Center Stage and I would recommend them to anyone.

What a wonderfully professional band! All of the correspondence prior was handled absolutely in the utmost timely manner and the entertainment the evening of the retirement party was fabulous. They dressed so nice and also interacted with the crowd. What a fun night. They were the best! I’d recommend them to anyone If you’d like your party to be a notch higher. Excellent entertainment!

Center Stage helped make my 50th Birthday Party A NIGHT TO REMEMBER! They were professional, fun and talented. I know 50th only happens once in a life time but anytime I need a band Center Stage will be my choice. Joe was wonderful and easy to work with. Thank you Center Stage!
