Hello Matthew - I just wanted to write and tell you what an amazing time we had at Julianna and Spencer's wedding reception with Atlanta Rhythm and Groove! They were INCREDIBLE!!!!!! The singers were cute ~ according to all the men at the wedding ~ and talented! The guys on all of the various instruments were fabulous! People told us they had never danced so much at a wedding! The wedding coordinator at Capital City Club said that she had never seen so many people start dancing at the very beginning of the reception and dance until the last song! Thank you so much for recommending them to me. I can't wait until we have another Rue child getting married so we can use Atlanta Rhythm and Groove again. Please pass along our great appreciation and thanks to Willie and the band! Take care ~ Melinda R.
Atlanta Rhythm and Groove were Fantastic!! They started slow--giving the members time to have dinner and "get a buzz"They took a break --and returned for non stop music until 11:30!! They are great--getting the party on the floor -- and staying there all night long!! It was our best member guest yet!!
What a fabulous Band!!! Candler and I want to thank you all for performing at our wedding reception. You were great! Everyone had so much fun, especially Candler and me. We danced the night away, and everyone was dancing, young and old! I had guests coming up to me all night asking me how I found the band. Choosing a band was very important to us, since we felt that the band helps determine how much fun guests have at the reception. I saw lots of bands before deciding on Atlanta Rhythm & Groove. Friends and family in Savannah, Atlanta, and all over are still telling us what a great time they had. We highly recommend Atlanta Rhythm & Groove. They were so easy to work with, very professional, and looked and sounded great! I loved the zebra hat! Thank you again for making our reception extra special. We wish you continued success!
Kathleen and Candler W.
Willie, I didn't even get to introduce myself last night. I may have spoken to you, but was too preoccupied to even ask which one you were!!
Anyways, thank you for everything last night! We had the best time and as you could tell everyone else did too. We needed a bigger dance floor!
I hope you all had a safe trip home. We will be sure to write amazing reviews and pass your name on!!
Thank you again!

Hey Rick! They were awesome! Everyone was so thrilled. I heard from many guests that they were the "best band they'd heard in a long time." Thank you. I know you are working with my aunt on one for Cotillion, and unfortunately she was not at the wedding, but I thought they were fantastic and could be great for that. They were engaging and played for the crowd, which was exactly what we hoped for! Thanks for everything Rick!
Rad! I give em a nine, great party.

Steve - I just wanted you to know that we were all very happy w ARG last night and they were a terrific hit! Please pass on to the band members how much we liked their show and how impressive they are. They show such enthusiasm for the music they create and each of them project such a personable style! We may ask you about coming to Chicago someday. Thank you again for all your help! Best,

Steve Harry! What an amazing band you recommended!!! Willie Green was a jewel to work with, and what a stage of talent enjoyed by everyone!!! Singers and musicians were splendid!! A great indicator was the dance floor was full when the floor was opened up to Earth, Wind, and Fire's, "Let's Groove Tonight"....They were amazing and wonderful to work with......so accommodating and kind. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!! With only 1 break, the places rocked the whole evening with incredible sounds and talent from the fabulous Atlanta and Groove Band......so aptly named! We will definitely see them again.......and I'm missing Willie already!! Sincerely,
Kaye T. (April 7th, 2012)
I can pretty much sum it up by saying they were absolutely spectacular. They did a great job and we had TONS of comments from our guests about how good they were. The small size of the Mountain City Club actually worked as a bonus--everything was tightly packed (including the dance floor the whole night) with great energy/atmosphere wall to wall. Please pass along the good word to Willie and the rest of his band--they rocked and really helped us put together a kick-ass reception.
The party was fantastic! We received rave reviews on the band, and everyone really loved the old movies – thank you for all of your help!

Corporate Holiday Party
AR&G were GREAT! They are all very talented. Everyone loved them; they made the party a big success. We have never had so many people on the dance floor. They were great at getting everyone out there and they were helpful with our drawings and making announcements. We told them Saturday night how much we enjoyed their performance but please tell them again! I hope they enjoyed it too; we hope we can get them for next year's party!
Thanks for your help. Hope your holidays are happy as well.

The band was truly amazing. I had to deal with my difficult ex wife, relatives I had not seen in ages and the staggering cost of the wedding. The band made all that go away for me and, more importantly, my daughter and my new son in law had a wonderful time. Thank you.

Steve... I just wanted to let you know that Atlanta Rhythm and Groove were a great band and performed well during our daughter's wedding on 12/15. Everyone had a great time!
I would recommend them to anyone. Please be sure to pass that along to the band!

I am sorry for my late "thank you" for helping us celebrate our daughters wedding. Your band was AWESOME and truly made the evening. They were the best band in every way!! You all were a pleasure to work with. Many many thanks!!

Absolutely awesome! Fantastic song list, energy through the roof, professional, and so accommodating - in fact, we got a late start and so they agreed just to play straight through without taking a single break. Honestly I couldn't be happier that we picked them... the kids, my friends, my parents friends, everyone loved them. It was an amazing night and they were a huge contributor.
I will recommend them to friends and would be happy to talk to anyone you send my way.
Arren B. (May 18th, 2013)
That reception was a BLAST! Everyone that I heard from loved it. The videographer said it was the best party he had filmed and someone at the Chatham Club said it was the most fun reception that they had there. You guys were awesome!
I will be sure to give you a great review on the sites. I will be sure to recommend you to any friends as well.
Reid B. (June 29th, 2013)
Just wanted to send a huge thank you to you and every member of the band!!! You all were AMAZING last Saturday and made our wedding so much fun!!! You all are so super talented! Everything was perfect and we will tell everyone we know to book you all ASAP!

Thanks so much for leading us to AR&G. They were fantastic, they made the wedding reception. We are still getting voice mails and emails thanking us for providing such a wonderful band. Our guests loved them.
I know a lot of wedding in our group of friends are still to come, so we will be sure and send them your way for AR&G.
It was a pleasure working with you, Rick.

I just submitted a review on TheKnot.com. Thank you so much for everything, the band was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a strong feeling you all will get a few more bookings as everyone loved them :). I will be sure to pass along your information specifically as well- we’re still a tad bit on the early side of our friends to get married but it’s certainly starting to snowball so I can only assume you’ll get some business from it ;).
Thanks again for everything!!!
Kayln A. (November 9th, 2013)
Will and I had so much fun at our reception and a large part of that was due to the band! I'm pretty sure they kept the dance floor more than packed the whole night. Will and i are not the type to dance on stage and we were probably up there more than we weren't bc they are so fun. After the wedding one of my friends told me she is 100% getting them for her wedding one day. Anyways I could go on and on and on about how fun they were.
We noticed the band took a lot of pictures during the reception. Would we be able to get any of those?
Also thank you for all your help during this process. You were so helpful and responsive and I can't tell you how much I appreciated that.
