From swing to rock to disco tunes and Motown classics, the Andrew Thielen Big Band plays your favorite style of music and gets everyone partying on the dance floor.

This fantastic band has been the band of choice for Planet Hollywood, the House of Blues, Hilton Head, the Greenbrier, Ritz Carlton, Charleston Place, the Kentucky Derby gala, a PBS TV show and other North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, Maryland, Florida, Kentucky, and Tennessey events. Along with being one of the most popular wedding bands in the Southeast, The Andrew Thielen Big Band is perfect for fund raisers, concerts in the park, arts councils or corporate conventions and events.

Did you know 'American Idol' and 'Dancing With The Stars' both use big bands? Why? Because it makes all music sound great. That is why both these shows sound and feel so 'alive and exciting.' The Andrew Thielen Big Band has the same feel. Musicians give dance music energy. We present numerous singers and styles of music to keep everyone jumping, rocking, swinging, ballroom dancing, and getting close with the slow dances too.

Spoleto Festival

Hi Steve,

I cannot tell you how thrilled we were and still are with The Andrew Thielan band. They were wonderful! People were talking about that party for weeks. We asked for a rocking party and they delivered tenfold! I don’t think I’ve ever seen our patrons dance the way they danced that night, and the best part was that they didn’t want to stop (as I’m sure Andrew told you considering we asked him to play longer). The music was fabulous, the ladies/dancers were fabulous, and the audience could not have had a better time. I personally loved seeing the guests of honor, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre, swing dancing to the band and engaging the crowd, too! It was a moment many of us here at Spoleto will never forget! A big “thank you” to you and Andrew for making this all happen!

Mother of the Bride

The Andrew Thielen band was fabulous. Everyone was asking about them and wanted to know where they were from. I almost wish I had another daughter so we can have another wedding!!!!! I would highly recommend them.

Thank you very much for the wonderful job that the band did on the night of the wedding. Jackie Beaumont, the other vocalists, and all of the musicians were fantastic! In addition to our enjoying the performance and dancing, we had many compliments about your band at the end of the evening. 
Thank you for helping to make our daughter's wedding special. .

Wedding Reception

Hello Andrew - Thank you so much for a wonderful performance at our wedding reception! Even without much direction the song selection was perfect. I'm glad I trusted your judgment with that, you really knew how to get our crowd hoppin'! We were worried that people would be shy and slow to start dancing, but the dance floor was immediately packed! One of my personal favorite moments was when the brass section of your band came out onto the stage for their first song after dinner. What an amazing sound!! We loved all the entertainment you added in as well. Everyone absolutely loved when you had the bride and her bridesmaids dancing and singing on the stage! It was so good it looked rehearsed! The band had great energy all night long (thanks for the encore song!), and that's just what we were looking for. Several people have told us that our wedding was one of the best they've ever attended and we feel that we owe that mostly to the Andrew Thielen Big Band! It truly made our event legendary!

We will certainly recommend you to anyone looking for a great band! - Thanks again!

Hi Steve,

The band was wonderful and so nice to work with. Everybody enjoyed their music. I'm sure the cotillion will want to hire them again next year.
