Originally from the live music mecca of Austin TX, Four Star Daydream avoids the typical "wedding band" cliche by putting a fresh spin on popular music from the 60s through today. We play the songs you and your guests love, but with subtle elements of bluegrass, jam, reggae, and more. Don't expect stiff, shiny tuxedos, or exact copies of the original music - just the songs you love most and a whole lot of danceable fun!

We'll also work with you on every aspect of the day, performing emcee roles as needed, and making sure everyone can clearly hear your toasts and other special moments. Let us create the perfect backdrop for every aspect of your wedding, from an instrumental string duo for your ceremony, to a pre-recorded playlist for dinner, to high-energy, danceable fun that will last all night long! We'll learn your special first dance song, and we can even work out a surprise with bridal party members to perform with the band for their guests! Get creative - if you can think it, we can make it happen.
All but one of us are music teachers by day, so we're constantly learning new music, and we run a live band karaoke in Charlotte, where we accompany singers on their favorite songs - so our repertoire is huge and growing all the time. Between our five members, we have several available musical lineups, listed below. Feel free to come up with your own combinations to match your event and your budget!
THE FIVE-PIECE PARTY BAND
A five-piece group, consisting of some combination of electric guitar, acoustic guitar, electric bass, banjo, violin, drums, and vocals. Expect the songs you love with a slight Americana twist, featuring multi-part harmonies and gorgeous string solos.
THE FOUR-PIECE PARTY BAND (Guitar, Elec Bass, Drums, Vocals)
A more budget-friendly group, just as danceable, but without the violin.
THE LIVE KARAOKE BAND
We love to get people involved in the show, and we're happy to incorporate the karaoke aspect as much as or as little as you want! Whether it's the main event, or just the last hour of the night, or only a pre-arranged song with a specific guest singer - we'd love to make YOU part of the show!
THE ACOUSTIC DUO
Mike and Amy (lead guitar and lead vocal) have played numerous wedding processions, first dances, and dinner parties. Amy's sweet, sultry vocals and Mike's world-class guitar are a perfect choice to add music to a ceremony or a low-key reception without breaking the budget.
We also do stage lighting and gorgeous event uplighting as well, and we can do package deals on lighting and music. Just ask!
