"We are from Ohio and when we were looking for a band for our daughter's wedding in Nashville, we were totally at a loss. So I hired Top Tier totally based on recommendations from other brides- and wow were they right! Top Tier far exceeded any expectations I could have possibly had. They had the crowd on the dance floor from the very first song until the very last! They came unto the floor and interacted with the crowd, and they were the nicest people you could ever have asked for. Their professionalism was over the top. I would hire them for another event without even thinking twice! They absolutely made the reception one people won't forget soon. I can't even tell you how many people came to us during and after the reception to tell us that this was the best band they had ever heard. If anyone is looking for a wonderful dance band for any event that is made up of the nicest people ever, don't even give it any other thought- just book Top Tier. We are so thankful we did!!! BTW, we paid extra to have the saxophone player, and very glad we did." - Alina H. (Ironton, OH)
“Top Tier was AMAZING! I had so many guests, both elderly and young, rave about how great they were. They really interact with the crowd to make sure everyone has a good time! The band was very easy to work with, always quick to answer emails and questions, and so much fun! Would highly recommend this band to anyone! If you don't have them at your wedding or event, you are truly missing out!” –Allison W. (Memphis, TN)
"Top Tier was amazing and exactly what we were looking for in a band for our wedding. My wife and I had met at an 80's cover band concert (popular band on the west coast) and it was important for us to have a band that could play that genre well. Top Tier did that and a whole lot more, playing jazz for the first hour and then playing everything from songs from the 70's to current country. We had asked them to learn a song, which they performed flawlessly, and were also great MC's for the evening. We were somewhat apprehensive hiring a band sight unseen (we live on the west coast and were having our wedding in Little Rock), but Top Tier blew away our expectations and we are so glad they were part of our big day. It was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding." -Tom P. (San Francisco, CA)
“Top Tier was absolutely incredible!!! We would 100% recommend them to anyone and everyone! JD is so awesome to work with - he responds quickly, is very helpful, and very flexible! The band did an awesome job getting our crowd involved... even let us play a little guitar, tambourine, and cowbell! They let our entire bridal party sing on stage and sang happy birthday to two of our special guests! All of our guests were ranting and raving about how fun they were! We are so thankful for Top Tier - they truly made our reception perfect!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!” –McCall G. (Nashville, TN)
