Social Club Event

As President Of the Board of Directors of The Wilmington Island Club, it is my responsibility for entertainment for all our social events. I feel I must give a review of The Reality Show Band. From the moment they entered the building to set up they were friendly, organized, and professional. And when they hit the stage it was pure magic !! The showmanship, song selections, and vocals were absolutely the best we have ever had !!! Very easy to work with. I look forward to their return! I have no reservations recommending them for any function!!
Thank You Mr. Harry for the recommendation!!

Best Regards,

Groom

We first saw Reality Show Band perform at a wedding we attended almost 3 years before ours. We loved their performance so much that we didn't even consider any other band. It was so easy to negotiate the agreement with the band's representation and the price was very reasonable, especially when our wedding was in New York and the band is headquartered in North Carolina.

The communication with the band was fantastic. We had a lot of questions that they answered right away, and the band even agreed to bring extra equipment up to New York for us. The song selection was done by the band--we just had to choose the genre of music and they would take care of the rest. At the wedding, everyone told us over and over how much they loved the songs. Everyone knew the lyrics and everyone had a great time. The band totally set the tone and vibe for the night, and we could tell they were enjoying themselves. Some of the band even came out and danced with us! Also, they MC'd the event for us perfectly in coordination with our planners.

We didn't have to worry about a thing with Reality Show Band. They're amazing performers and they made our reception the most fun it could be. We told our friends that they better book Reality Show Band for their weddings too.


Thanks,

Jeff S.

Fall Bash

Well now the dust has definitely settled. Fall Bash went very well and The Reality Show Band was well received. They put on a great show.. Lots of people on stage dancing, etc.

They were more than accommodating of the challenge of finding them dressing space. Rocketts Landing had told us we could use a building adjacent to the site. We were not given access to the building until Friday (day before) and what we found was unfit for humans. We quickly made alternate plans for a tent, but it was not set up on time, didn't have sides, etc.

Anyway, we came up with a solution for them and they rolled with it...

Thanks for all your help,

The band was great! We received lots of compliments about the music. They were easy to work with and very responsive to emails and my request to play a song with them. We were as pleased as we were with the band you provided last year for my other daughter's wedding. We always recommend you guys when someone asks about entertainment.

High School Event


So sorry this e-mail took so long to send. I just realized I hadn't responded when I was going back through old e-mails. Our semi-formal was awesome and we loved having the Reality Show Band. The students have been very happy the last two years and we hope to book them again in the future!

Thank you!

Lake Tahoma Weekend Show

We could not have asked for a more perfect band!! LaMonte and the band were wonderful!! Under the conditions that they had ( ie heat, rain, and a few of the guests "stalking" the female singers) the Reality Show Band performed a super show sounding as good, if not better than the originals! You and RSB actually made me look good because everyone kept telling me that they were hands down the best band we have ever had at our Lake Tahoma Weekend! Ellie, Thank you for all of your help!! I know that we were not an easy group to work with considering our budget and time constraints!! I will definitely recommend RSB for the group planning next years LTW, not that they need any coaxing!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

Class Reunion

We loved having Reality Showband play at our class reunion! Not only were they an extremely talented band, but they were great at getting the crowd involved. Throughout the night, I received many compliments on what a great band we had booked for our reunion. They were also professional and polite in every way. They are definitely a band I would want to work with again! Thanks for a great time!

Mother of the Bride

The Reality Show Band was FANTASTIC! We all had the best time! Everyone was on the dance floor the entire evening. Even me and my 50+ year old friends were making fools of ourselves! Everyone kept raving on the band and asking who they were. Great job! They even handled all our requests for the songlist even though they were only given a short time to prepare. Thank you so much for arranging the band to play for our daughter's wedding. We will definately use them again. Please give them all our best. Love,

Bride

Hope you are doing well. Now that things are finally starting to settle down after the wedding, I wanted to extend a HUGE thank you to you and Reality Show Band. As you may recall, they played at my wedding in Savannah on Nov. 5. They were absolutely incredible and gave so much life to the party. I had folks coming up to me all evening saying how much they were enjoying the band. Their performances were amazing, they got people of all ages on the dance floor and even let a fried of mine sing on stage with them. And, let me just say the lead female singer who sang Adele - AMAZING. That was certainly a highlight for me!

Please give my upmost thanks to the band members! And best of luck to all of you in the future. We may cross paths again! Sincerely,

Erin T.
