Ross was great to work with. He did a fabulous job performing for my wife's surprise 50th birthday party. He was in tune with the audience in the room. He was personable and great to listen to. His song selection was perfect for the audience and party. I would definitely recommend Ross look forward to working with him again.

I can't thank Side Effect enough for their phenomenal performance at our wedding! From the ceremony, to the cocktail hour, and finally the reception, they were simply fantastic! Guests danced ALL night, including those who I never expected to be on the dance floor for even a minute! Besides the actual event, Side Effect was so accommodating and helpful throughout the entire planning process. They were very quick to respond to any emails or phone calls and always put your needs first. I had several guests come up to me to express how much they loved the band (their talent, professionalism, and music selection). I would highly recommend Side Effect for any event!

If you're looking for a band to play the 'YMCA's', 'Let's Get it Started's', and the 'We are Family's' of the world you're best off looking elsewhere. If you're looking for a consultative, professional & talented band (um, hello: 2 Berkley grads) that'll have everyone from Grandma Gladys to you're second cousins' newest edition Eric dancing you've found the right guys. Booked site unseen, from initial outreach to conclusion of our wedding the Side Effects guys simply impressed. Literally half of our party wanted to know who these guys were, how we found them, and whether they were available for their upcoming event. *Highly recommend*
