** “Almost Famous” band (formerly the “Second Chance” band) played our wedding in June 2016 in West Chester, PA. They are truly a five-star wedding band. We're a (very happy) fifty-something couple, so our guests ranged in age from our parents (80's) to our grandchildren (preschool). They played to everyone's tastes, and all had a memorable time, thanks to their ability to “read” the crowd and get everyone dancing. I'm sure they had to re-varnish the dance floor the next day. They seldom took breaks,and always at the appropriate times. They have an incredibly comprehensive song list for virtually any musical taste.
Manager Bob was very accommodating, almost a second event planner for us. He provided several iterations of itinerary and song lists, customized to our tastes. The band also learned several additional requests for us not on their standard gig repertoire. He even made an hour's trip on a work day to meet with us in person at the wedding venue with our primary event planner to ensure perfect timing for the Big Day.
For a four-piece band they made a LOT of great music. A musician friend of ours said their vocal harmonies were incredibly good , and every song was very polished and well performed. The volume was just right, and they even provided lights.
They're light years beyond what a DJ could provide in terms of great entertainment. We did plenty of due diligence before selecting them,and have absolutely no regrets. 7/26/16

** The Band played at the Susquehanna Ski & Snowboard Club's Get Acquainted Party at Roundtop Mountain Resort. They played a wide variety of music and our group had the dance floor bouncing from the first song to the last. What a great time we all had and the band members are very professional to deal with ! 11/14/15

** We had the Band Band perform at our wedding. They were really on top of communications and always had a fast response time. They put together a plan for the day and accommodated all our special requests. I'm not sure I could have gotten it all together without their help. It was a lot of fun to plan and celebrate with them. My family loved them and everybody was out on the dance floor all night. The father of the groom loved how the band rocked the classic songs and told me to have them play more ! I highly recommend the Second Chance Band ! 10/3/15

**Rachel Rocks in the March, 2015 issue of the Pa Musician Magazine said " It was a great night of music, and I'm glad I got to see them again. They even ended the night with some amazing sing-a-long Journey ! 2nd Chance Band had Woody's packed till even after the last song. I saw three different band members singing lead on completely different songs, so obviously this band is pretty versatile too"

** I just wanted to say thank the band for an amazing wedding ! Everything was just perfect ! We got so many compliments on how good our band was ! The ceremony song was wonderful and the cocktail hour music sounded great ! We were so happy and how much we appreciated everything. Thanks again, Sharon and Eric " 6/13/15

2nd chance band was a pleasure to work with from the start when we hired them for our wedding. Lisa, vocalist was so kind and helpful when planning the main events to make our wedding so special. The band was efficient and professional taking extra time to prepare, including going out to the venue ahead of time to insure that space, hookups, etc were appropriate for the wedding. The night of the wedding was perfect, the band was awesome, got the crowd dancing and I couldn't have been happier with them!
