There seems to be a misconception among bands that you are either a wedding band or you're not. Many bands seem to stay on one side of the fence or the other, but this logic never made sense to my band and I. Although we have radio play with our own music and are Nashville songwriters during the week, there is no greater thrill for us than making your wedding day the most memorable and enjoyable day of your lives. It is really the best of both worlds as we get to write for other artists full time and also get to play on the weekends the songs that made us want to do this in the first place. We welcome the chance to play weddings and have as much fun at these events as we do headlining 5000 seat venues. Over the years, we have teamed up with some of the best wedding planners in the business to fill a niche which caters to brides and grooms who want a performance for their special day that feels more like an "event" rather than just a "reception". I always look forward to meeting with brides and grooms beforehand to design a show around their vision. We enjoy getting the party involved, having them do "special guest" appearances and truly having the time of their lives.

Lighting, song selection, break music, first dances and stage design are all factors that we consider in working together to create an unforgettable experience. Sound and lighting production is a big factor that is often overlooked in this process. Many bands get booked without any discussion of this and show up with the bare minimum. In addition to being a songwriter and touring artist, I have also run a production business for the last 10 years and making stages look and sound awesome is a passion of mine. Recent clients include Garth Brooks, James Otto, Earl Thomas Conley and The Nashville Film Festival. Since the use of all this gear is included in our fee, we wind up being more affordable than a lot of bands that have to add these fees later on. If you have any questions or want to inquire about a date, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you!

Chris and his guys were absolutely phenomenal on our wedding night. We couldn't have asked for a better performance on our big night, as well as the communication leading up to it. Chris is always available and is accommodating for all requests. Not only were they entertaining, but Chris did a great job assisting with ceremony music, and announcing the wedding party. The band understood the formal aspect of the wedding, but knew exactly when to take the entertainment to another level. They played a huge part in making our ceremony and reception a memorable one. I would recommend them to anyone!

I could not be happier with my experience with The Speakeasy. They were the entertainment at my wedding reception and it was an absolute BLAST! Not only are they all extremely talented, the band leader Chris was a professional businessman. He stayed in touch with me throughout the whole process and was very responsive with questions. They showed up 4 hours before the ceremony started to make sure the sound and setting was perfect. We danced and partied all night long. They even let my dad play a few songs with them! Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a band for their wedding or any event. Such a great experience... happy guests, happy bride and groom!
