The Nu south Players were all that we expected and more!! They put on a great show and the kids had a blast. I was really impressed with how well they did such a wide variety of music.They were great guys and fun to work with. Please convey our thanks to them for making our prom really special.



They were really amazing they kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night!! I got so many compliments on how great they were!!

We would have danced all night if the venue allowed it.  Nu South Players was dynamic from dinner music to spotlight dances and kept the crowd on the floor the entire reception.  There was not a time when the floor was not occupied or for that matter crowded.  Each band member was personable, fun and all around just super nice guys.  The talent of these guys was beyond the norm with their ability to span the music spectrum from Al Greene, to Hank Williams, to Bruno Mars and everything in between. Guests are raving about them weeks later.  When the wedding guests are shouting "one more song", you have the right band playing!  It was one of the best wedding decisions made!!

Please forward this to Will and the other band members and express our gratitude and appreciation for their talents. We could not have picked a better group!

Nu-South Playaz was fabulous!!! Everyone danced their shoes off, and really loved it when some of the band members came down and showed us some new moves! And they were so very nice!

We are very happy with our decision to hire them play for my daughter's wedding. It was such fun and they sounded really good!

Bar Mitzvah

Will and the Nu South Playaz were amazing.  They played for my son's bar mitzvah and customized their songlist for 13 year olds but also knew classics for adults. They were so professional and wonderful to work with.  They went out of their way to learn current songs that my son requested.  They were so fun and engaging.  All of my son's friends have commented that his was the best bar mitzvah they have ever attended!  I would definitely use them again for a future event.

We loved the band!!  We will most likely book them for an event in the future.

Thanks for checking in.

I cannot tell you how many people were absolutely obsessed with NSP!  Just yesterday, I had a guest from the wedding rave about the band, their music, their entertainment quality.  NSP far exceeded expectations; Jay and I were so pleased with the choice to book them.  THEY WERE INCREDIBLE!!! Additionally, I plan to use them again in the future should another event arise.  

Thanks for helping me book them Rick!

Private Party

NSP was the best band ever. We had such a great time! We danced all night. They read the crowd so well. Played music for everyone and when we chanted ONE MORE SONG (Twice - because we did not want it to end), they came up big.

All the guests keep commenting on how great the band was and if they have any other gigs.

Thank you so much for your help. The process was so easy. Thanks again.

As you know, this is the second time we've booked NSP for a wedding - We loved NSP in 2010 and we loved them in 2013. Happily, we've married off our last daughter and won't have to put on another wedding, but this is the first call I'll make when I need a band for a future party!!!

NSP was so impressive that we were getting lots of comments from our guests and inquiries as to "Where did you find the band?" It amazed everyone how much sound they get out of so few people. The woman who manages the Savannah Yacht Club functions, Angie Colquitt, wanted to make sure she had your information so that she could recommend NSP to people booking future receptions. From my standpoint as the host, I love NSP because they are dependable, show up on time, looking great and ready to go, and they are endlessly versatile with their music. They know all the ins and outs of "running" a wedding reception and are happy to do all those corny things that people want at a wedding reception. They assess the crowd and quickly figure out what gets people out on the dance floor and enjoying themselves. They don't take excessive breaks. Will is unfailingly polite and accommodating. And the booking is easy and straightforward. I have nothing but rave reviews for ECE and NSP,

Thanks so much!

Thanks for checking in. Everything about the wedding weekend was absolutely perfect--including the New South Players. They were on time, ready to play and entertain. Felt out the crowd perfectly and played incredible music. Everyone loved them and danced the night away. The finale of "I've Gotta Feeling" was one of the highlights--everyone sang along.

They were above and beyond expectation! I will recommend them to friends and family.

Thank you so so much!

We made the easy decision of selecting NSP from your vast selection of bands after seeing them play at two weddings prior to ours. Both times we saw them perform we were so impressed that we made sure to write down their name for our own wedding! Needless to say we were more than happy with our decision. The band is very professional not only in appearance but in all matters involving arrival times, set up, ect. We had nothing to worry about on our wedding day other than having a good time! We even had a friend play our first dance and the band was more than willing to help with the special set up. The dance floor was packed for almost three and half hours, with the band only taking a short break. They did a great job of reading the crowd and making excellent song selections. They adhered to our "please do not play" list as well as not leaving out any of our favorite songs. We had a "livelier" crowd, and NSP has a great way of playing all of the classic songs as well as newer crowd favorites. We have had many compliments on our band and are more than happy to pass their name on as a much recommended vendor! Thanks for everything,

I just wanted to let you know that NSP was amazing for our wedding. They were extremely professional and made things very easy for everyone on the day of the event. Above and beyond that they made the wedding a truly incredible event for everyone. They were able to read the crowd so well and get everyone involved playing just the right music as the night progressed. I think the best example of this was when I looked out on the dance floor at 10:30 and saw my aunt and uncle on the dance floor where they had been all night and I can honestly say this is the firs time I have ever seen them dance. How good the band was is one of the top comments we keep getting form all of our guests. I would highly recommend them to anyone.


Thanks for your email. NSP did an amazing job at our wedding. They helped us out during the ceremony as the sound system at the quarry broke and they were very accommodating to my Bestman as he had written a song and used some of their equipment to aid his performance. We've already had loads of compliments for choosing the NSP from lots of our guests. If I were to get married again, I'd definitely use the NewSouthPlayaz, let's just hope I don't! But I will recommend them to my friends and family. Please send a Big Thank you to the guys and their team. Best Wishes

Will and the NSP Guys were AWESOME!!! They were wonderful - they had the dance floor jam packed and it was a BIG dance floor. Everyone had a great time. Megan and Matt truly enjoyed their day - the parents were happy and so, once again .... ECE has raised the bar!!!! It was all and more!

Thank you for always providing the BEST entertainment - it's a pleasure working with you and any band you suggest - you are professionals. Having your entertainers in place gives me piece of mind - meaing I don't have to worry about their performance, arriving on time and most importantly - proper manners and conduct - all very important!!! I can focus on the other wedding details.

Thank you for making another wedding reception 'picture perfect!' I'm looking forward to our next occasion. And you're 'the man.'

NSP was fabulous, exactly what we wanted. My only complaint was not booking them for an after party too!

Thanks so much for your help and please thank the guys for me.

NSP did a really great job at our wedding. They definitely kept the crowd involved and put on a really good show. I also saw them a few weeks later at Ashley Leadon and Ryan Smithson's wedding and they were awesome again. This is funny, but I am going to a wedding in October and look forward to seeing them again :)

Thanks for all of your help!
