Reality Check is a trio from the L.A. area providing dance cover music from the 60's to the present for weddings, adult birthday parties, and other events. For weddings, we offer a complete DJ/emcee/live band package. We play a wide variety of classic rock, pop, funk, motown, 80's, 90's, and some current hits. We're flexible to play at a small house party for 40 guests or a wedding reception/festival for hundreds of people, as our trio can fit into the smallest backyard patio or banquet room band area, yet fill up a large festival stage as well.

We tailor our setlist for the specific requirements of each gig to ensure optimal satisfaction from you and your guests. We will omit playing certain songs or types of songs to your preference and highlight others. We'll even learn a few special requests before the gig if you don't see them on our current list below, which is not all-inclusive. Some clients have us play an "all 80s", "all 70s", or "all 60s" show and we will even dress in that decade's attire while performing to add to the authenticity of the theme.

The guitarist switches to playing keyboards on several songs. This enables us to play anything from guitar-based songs like "I wanna be sedated" by the Ramones to keyboard-based gems like "Don't you forget about me" by Simple Minds while remaining a trio. We all three sing as well. BOTTOM LINE: YOU CAN HIRE OUR TRIO FOR A LOT LESS THAN A 4- OR 5-PIECE BAND, AND YET YOU WON'T SACRIFICE MUSICAL OR VOCAL QUALITY.

Our band comes fully equipped with the instruments, sound system and even some dance floor lighting. Volume is always kept at a reasonable level. For quieter house parties, the drummer will use brushes instead of sticks to help keep the neighbors down the street happy. We will hook up some background music before we start and on breaks to keep the party atmosphere going at all times. We'll even have an extra mic set up should one of your guests get the urge to sing along with the band.

For wedding receptions, we'll come early to provide the emcee/DJ function from the time the guests arrive to the time the band starts. This includes playing DJ cocktail hour/dinner music from our sound system, then assisting with the toasting and announcements, first dance, cake cutting, throwing of bouquet, etc. We have wireless mics for your use, as well as audio hookup for slide projector audio cables. We can incorporate all styles of songs into the evening's dance music like salsa, disco, big band, hip-hop, etc. by playing it from our sound system when the band takes a break, complementing the mix of pop/rock songs in our band's repertoire. IN SUMMARY, YOU CAN HAVE A LIVE BAND AND A DJ SERVICE FOR YOUR WEDDING RECEPTION FOR ONE AFFORDABLE PRICE.

We'll eagerly communicate with you prior to the event to ensure no detail gets overlooked. We often receive compliments on our timeliness in returning emails and phone calls. We continue to receive repeat bookings from previous GigMasters customers throughout LA and other surrounding areas, and hope we can add you to our list of satisfied clients.

Thank you!

Jeff and the Reality Check band were the best!! We had a small 80 person wedding and the dance floor was full the whole time. They even set up 2 separate sound systems for the ceremony and reception, and not only does their services include the live music, but they played recorded music for the ceremony, cocktail hour and dinner as well. We also used their mics for speeches. I had a few song requests but really they picked all the perfect music to keep the party going, and I got nothing but compliments on how great the band was. Jeff is also super nice and easy to work with. Would highly, HIGHLY recommend. Seriously. These guys are so much better than a DJ!

Jeff Brown and Reality Check were fabulous. Jeff was always very responsive to me as the planning was taking place. I hired Reality check because they were an 80s band, had great ratings, and I liked that one of the band members was also an MC - Jeff. I was beyond pleased. They did some great sets, interacted with the crowd well, got everyone dancing and were truly enjoyed by myself, my husband and our guests. I changed the venue on them and adjusted time, and they rolled with everything. I didn't give them a strict set playlist and they did a great job matching songs (fast/slow) to what my guests seemed to really enjoy and want. I would highly recommend!!

We wanted a "wedding singer" & we got one! We mean that with the utmost respect and charm. Don't hesitate to invite Reality Check to your upcoming wedding. Our family and friends raved about them during the reception & continue to talk about them today. They are incredibly talented musicians & don't lack in professionalism! Jeff provided top notch service & recommendations. He rolled with the punches - never skipping a beat. Not only was the live music amazing, but having Jeff as an emcee was just perfect. He kept things on track, but didn't overpower the event by talking a lot. He let the wedding be all about us. :-) Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
