IDT is a band that performs at quite a few weddings, but it would feel strange to call them a wedding band. What comes to mind when you hear the term "wedding band"? For them, it's corny matching outfits, groan-inducing jokes, and unholy "traditions" with cute little names like "The Chicken Dance" and "Macarena".
If we're going by stereotypes, IDT would fail conclusively as a wedding band. So why have they become one of the most in-demand entertainment acts in North Texas after only existing for a year? Because IDT knows the difference between cool and lame. Comprised of five "kids" (all of average marrying age), they have a good idea of what appeals to their generation, and they have perfected a show that makes the guests WANT to stay, and unable to stop dancing. Every couple wants the same thing for their wedding reception, and it's never for it be a litany of traditional events while guests stand around and clap politely. What they want is a party that they and everyone in attendance will remember as one of the greatest nights of their lives. Join IDT in the quest to make weddings cool again.
If you'd love to hire Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, or Flo Rida for your event then look no further…
Because we've ripped them all off.
IDT is the only band in Dallas that functions like a DJ. That means you will hear the newest, most popular songs on today's charts. We monitor real-time DJ polls monthly to make sure we are playing the most requested songs. This means that you'll probably always hear Brick House and Journey, but you will also hear the new Usher song that came out last week, you'll hear live mash-ups, you'll hear inhuman voice effects, you'll bounce to 808 kick drums and walls of synthesizers. Every member of IDT is a knowledgeable programmer or producer, which means you get live looping, choreographed lighting, and a band that can literally reproduce any song.
"I'm totally giving credit to IDT for making our 20th High School Reunion an off the charts success.
I listened to countless classmates worry that a band would not sound 'exactly like' various bands and artists. Wow did IDT prove them wrong! They were off the charts. Smoke machines, a disco ball, perfectly played songs dropped to groovy beats and a dance floor full of almost (not quite) 40 year olds reliving their youth via Journey with a dash of Black Eyed Peas; that's an awesome party. They played everything, we danced and sang along to everything. We had some crazy fun and I give all credit for said funness to the band that started and ended the party. At 12:30 when the (4 hour) set was over, we wanted more!!"
"I awoke Saturday morning, to snowfall and a fear that IDT would not be able to make the trek from Big-D to Norman to help me and all my wonderful friends and family ring in my 30th birthday! THANK GOD this group will risk life and limb to help people have …a great time regardless of the road conditions.
I would like to say a very, very, very special thank you to all of you guys for making this one of the greatest nights of my life! It would not have been the same experience without your amazing musical talents but more importantly your fantastic interaction with all of the guests. You have no idea how many people came to me the next morning to let me know how amazing you all were!
From the bottom of my heart I thank you all! You made this day one for the ages! Ummmm hopefully I didn't ruin any equipment in the process?! Keep on rockin!"

"I know a lot of people knock IDT because their careers are basically centered around copying other bands and getting drunk people to dance, but I know deep down in my heart, that IDT is about the children. And probably world peace too."

"My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for five years with no luck. One of our friends told us about IDT, so we went to their show and immediately were impregnated by the rock. We have never been happier!"

You guys did an AWESOME job last night. You made our special day and night to remember. Amarillo loves you! Hope to see you back up here soon!

IDT worked with us to get the perfect song list. Thanks in part to them; our guests had a great time at the wedding. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone sang along to the songs. They are the perfect band for a wedding group that likes to dance. On a side note, several of our friends said they were sore from dancing the next day!
