The Gandhi's did a fabulous job performing at our wedding reception. The mix of music was perfect; they started out with softer jazz for the cocktail hour and dinner, and then when it was time for dancing they got everyone out on the floor. Many of the guests commented on how much the band seemed to enjoy playing together, too; they really love what they do and it shows! They are a highly talented group who are definitely a cut above the average "wedding band"!

The band was flat-out amazing! An incredible range -- from standards to rock to soul to an unbelievable rendition of I Will Survive at the end of the evening (an unexpected exclamation point for our same-sex wedding). They even honored a request for Sweet Home Alabama. Rudy is a great vocalist and performer. Every song was special. Our guests were blown away. My husband and I are in our 50's, but the band managed to please us and our very discerning 20-something nieces and nephews, no easy feat. I also have to say -- the difference between a band and a DJ is the difference between an average wedding and an extraordinary event. Very much worth the investment.

The Gandhi's performed at our wedding on 08/09/14. They were fantastic to work with and amazing performers! Rudy was very responsive and helpful as we tried to figure out what would work for us, and made sure everything ran smoothly day of. The band was extremely talented and played a diverse set that entertained people of all generations. I had people frequently coming up to me during the night and afterwards complementing their performance. I would absolutely recommend the Ghandi's for your event!
