"This band is the real deal. From the beginning, they were very accommodating and flexible with us every step of the way. At the party, they were excellent. They played a wide variety of music and kept the dance floor packed at all times. There were times when they even participated with the crowd. Overall, it was a great experience and we could not have been happier. Book these guys! A+ for the Radio Nation Band."
- Brian C.
in Buffalo, NY
"They were exceptional. They had the guests dancing all night. Made my wedding an amazing success. We had multiple inquiries on who they were. They were very flexible. My only recommendation would be tighter control of the dinner music which included system of a down and avril lavigne which wasn't quite what i was thinking:):)"

in Hamilton, NY
"Radio Nation Band was so much fun to have. We actually hadn't heard them before but we just decided to trust reviews from other people and we were very impressed by how well they did with the music progression from the beginning to the end. We were on the dance floor the entire night and everyone was having the best time!! I was really glad that we had them dancing and interacting with us and I would certainly recommend them! Thank you guys and Rosemarie!"

"Radio Nation Band was a fantastic choice for our wedding. The band is extremely talented and entertaining. They kept our family and friends dancing all night. Even the caterers were having a good time. The variety of music was great and the performers enthusiastic! Every one at the reception kept asking who these guys were because they were so impressed. HIGHLY recommended for a wedding or any other event in need of some great live music. Thanks to the band for a great time!"
- Rachel T.

"The band was great! We had a wonderful time at the wedding and everyone said it was because of the band! These guys are chameleons, able to play anything you need. "

"This band is far and away the best live performance art band that my new husband and I have seen ever! It was an absolute pleasure working with Shimi and the gang and we are desperately trying to think of the next event we might be able to hire them for. The price is right and they will NOT disappoint. They even learned a rather difficult song for our first dance and pulled it off flawlessly, to the point where my girlfriedns were crying tears of joy. Thanks so much gang, we'll remember you always! The McEvily's "

"The Band was AWESOME! They are worth every penny we paid for them and then some. I can't imagine what our wedding would have been like without them. They were very easy to work with as well as VERY entertaining. They're style of music caters to crowds of all ages, from teenagers to people in their 60's & 70's. Everybody was dancing from the time they started playing all the way to the end of the night (and our families & friends normally don't dance). Everyone at the reception had a great time thanks to the Band. I would recommend them to anyone for any kind of function.
- Jason B.

"They were AWESOME! I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone had a great time and danced like crazy. Best band ever."

in Nantucket, MA
"The Band was fabulous. We had a Jack and Jill wedding shower for our son and his bride to be, 300 people attended. Everyone raved about the band and I'm sure they will be back on Nantucket Island again. If they did not have another place to go the next day they would still be here playing, because the guests were ready to pass the hat to keep them here. We can not say enough. Awesome, Awesome, Awesome !! Doris and Charlie Strang

"The band was accomodating to all conditions of the evening entertainment. The music was great as was all members of the band. There was not a guest for the event who did not have a nice thing to say about the band. Everyone was pleased and we were sorry to see the end of the evening. I would recommend them to anyone looking for event entertainment.
Members of the band were also very courteous and friendly.
Good luck with your event."

"In all honestly, this is the greastest wedding band ever! They made my wedding so incredibly fun & lively. Everyone was dancing & having a blast and afterwards, everyone commented on how great they were.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to the band for making my wedding the best night ever! "

"I never give any group or company a perfect score, however, this Band was absolutely perfect for our Christmas party. They were wonderful to work with prior to the engagement and greatly assisted me in the planning process of the party. As far as talent, all I can say is "WOW!". They were unbelievable on instruments as well as vocals. I was concerned to request a bid from them at first since our party was in Chattanooga, TN and they were from Rochester, NY, however the bid was extremely reasonable even though we are a non-profit organization. They are coming with us for all of our parties in the future!

"These guys are simply awesome and are no ordinary "wedding band". If you are searching within their region, and you want a fun band that can handle a variety of sounds -- Motown, Rock, R&B, Oldies, Modern, Soul, etc. - you owe it to yourself to check these guys out and hire them immediately. Many friends and family said it was the best band they've seen/heard at a wedding. They have soul, passion and exceptional skills on each of their instruments, which made for an incredibly entertaining band and truly made our wedding day that much more special and memorable. Everyone in the room - from the older folks to our friends - were dancing the entire show. Thanks fellas!"

"I found you thru this website and I booked you for our Welcome Home Celebration for our Local Troops here in Utica NY, that returned in January from serving almost a year in Iraq. I am so Happy that I booked this band! You Guys were AWESOME! I want to Thank you all so very much for making it a wonderful night for our Troops' Welcome Home Party. I will Highly recommend you to everyone I know. I dont think I could have picked a better Band to help us all celebrate what we have waited so long for. I hope you enjoyed yourselves too. Everyone has commented on what a great time they had and that the Band was awesome. Again, THANK YOU, I cant say it enough. xoxox Christie"

"Working with this Band was a wonderful experience. They're very professional and were willing and able to accomodate my last minute requests for bridal songs. They played them wonderfully. The band is amazing when you listen to them online but that great sound pales in comparison to them live. They play each piece so well that you feel as if the original artist was there singing the songs and playing the music. We give have not stopped recommending you to my friends and acquaintances and people are still talking about how great it was. All our thanks for sponsoring them and allowing us to find such talent for our wedding. Mr. & Mrs. Garcia"

"Shimi and the Band brought to our day great music and great interaction with the kids and the teachers and everyone! We all danced up a storm! They were very accomodating and were even willing to relocate outdoors at a minutes notice since the weather was so nice! They have left good lasting memories for all of us! Fine Musicians! MJ Gunderson/Coordinator of Performing Arts Day"

"These guys were awesome!!! They definitely made our wedding one that will go down in the history books. If you're looking to have a great time and get even the quietest of people up on the dance floor, then these are the guys you're looking for. They play tunes EVERYBODY loves. And if they say something about costume changes, don't ask; just let them do it. You'll be thrilled, believe me. "
- Jen W.
in East Rochester, NY
"I would STRONGLY recommend this Band to anyone who wants a band with a quality sound and genuine love for music, and who isn't able to pay the sometimes outrageous costs of a live band. They were willing to do the show for what we could afford because they have a genuine love of performing and of making people happy with music. Shimi actually learned to play "Time in a Bottle" just for our first dance. They seem to have artistic sensitivity, too. They're also generous about sharing the spotlight, in that they didn't make it a huge plug for their band or talk a blue streak, but instead focused on playing appropriate music well. Hire these guys. Trust me."
