Here is what some of our customer have to say ...
.... this band was absolutely fantastic. Through the entire process of preparing our wedding, Ron was always available to discuss and requirements or requests we had from them. He always responded in a timely manner and was more than accommodating. They sound fantastic and I heard so many compliments from many of my guests. I met each of the band members and they were all very friendly, professional, and talented. Our wedding was in Illinois and they all travelled from Ohio without a fuss, and they were right on time. I recommend this band to anyone and they were worth every penny! Trevor Savoy, IL 09/27/2016
Different Hats made our 1920's themed event a huge success! Everyone loved their performances and they were great to work with. They were both professional and fun. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great live band! -- Gena L, Columbus, OH, 12/10/2011
I would give Different Hats SIX STARS for everything. It was such pleasure working with them. We only needed a 4-piece outfit and it was no problem for them to scale the band down to meet our room size. They were very flexible in working with us regarding the few unforeseen obstacles that arose and took everything in stride. And oh, the music! Ours was a 1920s party and DH did an excellent job of playing tunes from that era and mixing in tunes from later eras but in a nice jazzland style. The vocalist had the soul and style of a 20s nightclub singer. The two dance instructors got the room up and doing the Charleston in no time. Terrific! -- Rebecca S, Cleveland, OH, 4/21/2012
An outstanding performance. I can easily say Different Hats delivered more than I expected. They played the type of music we requested. The vocalist was excellent. I got many positive comments from those who attended the party. -- Dan K, Cincinnati, OH, 5/26/2012
They were fantastic! They absolutely MADE my wedding reception. Many of the older guests who would have otherwise left early stayed just to hear the band. My new in-laws raved! My guests are still telling me how much they loved my band. They were the best addition to our reception. They played everything I asked them too, their rates are very reasonable, and their sound was superior to any I've heard before. The female vocalist is extremely talented, and she lacked all of the "country/western" influence every other similar band and vocalist seemed to exhibit. Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald would be very proud to hear her singing their songs. They were perfect! -- Carolee A, Tupelo, MS, 6/9/2012
The band was very talented and bent over backward to make our day beautiful-- we had a ton of compliments on the music! One of the most important pieces on my day was having a live band skillfully play music beneath the sunset-- this band made that happen! We would definitely recommend them! -- Shannon D, Madison, IN, 9/1/2012
Great job ! We used the group for the last 2 yrs to do our Mardi Gras party ! Tons of songs that fit the theme. Super nice and professional. Thanks again for another great performance ! -- Daniel S, Cincinnati, OH, 2/19/2010
