Bags Howard band gave us the best performance we were expecting, my wife and I have initially wanted to have our wedding in New Orleans, the band brought New Orleans to us, one of the greatest moments was getting from Embassy Suites, where the ceremony was held, to the Acadiana restaurant for the party, Bags Howard played all the way in the streets of DC and all the guests following them, made it a real first line band playing and all are still talking about how magical that moment was, and all of that was thanks to the band. Thnak you for that.

Bags Howard assembled a quartet of musicians to play for our wedding cocktail hour. They were great!! They had people tapping their toes and dancing the entire time and we received so many compliments on them after. The wedding venue even mentioned that they planned to recommend them in the future. The music was perfect for the mood we wanted to create for the wedding. In addition to their musical talent, they were very professional, on time, and wearing appropriate attire (of the type we discussed in advance). I can't recommend them enough!

Bags and his Riverside Carnival Band were absolutely amazing, and the hit of our speakeasy-themed wedding. They are a group of talented and professional musicians who kept everyone's heads nodding and toes tapping all evening. Bags was wonderful to work with in the months leading up to our event and accommodated our specific requests without any trouble at all. They even took a request on-site from my jazz aficionado in-laws, which was great. I would recommend them wholeheartedly to anyone considering jazz at their event. My only regret is that I had to spend most of my time greeting my guests, and couldn't spend more time just enjoying the music!
