I can't begin to tell you how amazing the band was Friday.  It has been years since we had guests still dancing and distracted staff that late and until the very end.  I had not had the opportunity to listen to The Rivertown Band thoroughly and was so excited when I did.

We would so appreciate the opportunity to book with The Rivertown Band again for next year's party.  Please thank the band and thank you for helping make the evening memorable and fun for our members.

This Band Is Awesome

This was without a doubt, the best wedding band that I have ever seen. Not only were they all great musicians, but they looked the part too; very professional but very cool. I have had more friends and family call me during this last week to tell me how great the whole wedding was but then go on and on about how great the band was. They completely nailed all three songs for the Father/Bride, Mother/Groom and First Dance which ranged from Country - Heartland's 'I Loved You First' , Jazz - Louis Armstrong's What a Wonderful World', and Soft Rock - Ed Sheeran 'Thinking Out Loud'. Their main set of songs was an awesome combination of the songs that we picked and a few mashups of songs in the same genre and era's. They seemed to really have taken the time to look at the song choices that we made and work off that to create just a spectacular show. The dance floor was packed the whole night and it was just a great atmosphere all around. I would strongly, strongly recommend this band for any wedding/event . Thank you so much RiverTown Band. You all really capped an amazing night. Sean

We just wanted to thank you SO much for an absolutely amazing evening. You and your band truly made the night - you definitely kept everyone dancing and having so much fun all night. Your enthusiasm and energy was infectious, and you have such talent. All the guests told me how they loved you guys and I got many comments how it was the best band at a wedding they've ever heard. We totally agree with them - we were blown away with how great you guys were! Every song was so great. Your professionalism was incredibly impressive too.

Thank you for everything (and dealing with my detailed emails/favourite songs!), and we were amazed you went right through the night without a break! Everything you did made our night extra special, so we can't thank you enough.

Steve, hope you're well. Scott and the band were absolutely amazing. This was the first time the venue had a band play, and they were floored about how well everything went!

We could not have asked for a better experience. People kept coming up to us throughout the night asking where I found them, so I was definitely pitching EastCoast! Thank you for making it such a seamless, stress free process.

John and I can not thank you enough for helping create a wedding for us that far exceeded our expectations. I truly could not have dreamt a more beautiful day. Because of your help and dedication, the seventh of November will forever be an incredible memory for the two of us.

I wanted to personally thank you for your part in creating an evening that was unforgettable for both ourselves and our loved ones. Throughout the planning phase, you were the easiest vendor to work with - always responding to emails in a very timely manner and asking all of the right questions to eliminate any problems day of (Leslie was fantastic in addressing our concerns and guiding us through the pre-wedding process).

Because of your expertise and professionalism, both my mother and I were able to rest assured that we had made the right decision and look forward to seeing you on the wedding day.

Wow! You were beyond amazing! I never could have imagined how much fun we would have out on the dance floor with our family and friends as you played song after song from your extensive list. John and I especially loved your interaction with the crowd and your ability to really gauge the atmosphere. On that note - we really appreciate your patience with us and our guests as we joined you on the stage for much of the last set. Your entire team was nothing but professional and pleasant with us from beginning to end. We truly could not have had a better time!

Every person I spoke to that evening (and since for that matter) has commented on how much they loved the band. Your energy and positive attitude was crucial to setting the tone for the evening. There are truly not enough words to describe how much we appreciate and are grateful for the wonderful experience we all had. On behalf of John and my entire family, please know that we could not have been more pleased.

Huge Success.  The wedding out at Birds of Prey was amazing.  

Rivertown was great.  I have given your name and the bands name out to many people.  Scott, as well as the entire band, made the whole process so easy and such a pleasant experience.  I would recommend them hands down.  They are truly a band that you can use with so much confidence that they will perform over and above every expectation you may have.  The night was enjoyed by all!  I will send some pictures when I get them back.

Thanks for the great recommendation.

I just wanted to let you know that the band was terrific.  There were so many people on the dance floor all night that we really should have arranged for a bigger dance floor. Scott Coleman and his fellow musicians were very professional and extremely entertaining.  The vocals and music were beyond belief.  I must have been asked about the band 100 times.  As one person put it, “you could have had this reception in a shed and the band would have made it a wonderful event.”

Bride & Groom

Thank you so much for following up with me. The Rivertown band OVER exceeded our expectations at our wedding. The band members truly made our wedding day so special and the guests could not have raved more about the song choices and how amazing they sounded. My vision for that day was to have the best party people have been to for the year and to not only get married but for everyone to enjoy themselves together. I feel the band is primarily responsible for making this happen and bringing all ages of people together to celebrate on the dance floor. The band adjusted to our timeline perfectly as well, I found out the next day that our dinner time went over and the band accomdated for the time delay and instead of taking their break they played straight through so we wouldn't lose anymore dance time. I would like to thank Scott especially for learning our first dance song and the father daughter song, it was just perfect! Everyone two weeks later are still raving about the band and said it was one of their favorite things about our wedding. From the ceremony music, to the cocktail music, to the reception we wouldn't have changed ANYTHING!! 

Thank you so much for making our day perfect! We will certainly recommend them to anyone and everyone!

We cannot say enough good things about The Rivertown Band! They were an amazing addition to our wedding that I am so incredibly happy we decided to add. They made our wedding. We had multiple guests come up to us and say that was the best wedding they have ever been to and I fully believe it was because of The Rivertown Band. They are worth every penny! The band played all excellent songs, had great dance moves, and kept everyone dancing. We even decided to extend because we didn't want them to leave. Thank you again Rivertown Band! You were awesome!!

BEST BAND EVER!! These guys are AMAZING! If they are available for your date book them - don't even hesitate. All of our guests had a great time and were dancing the entire night. They played all the most popular hits and then did fun 70s, 80s and country sets as well. I didn't want the night to end. They sounded incredible and were so full of energy - I wish I could have them every weekend!!!

Having a band at our wedding was a must!! The planning process was filled with so many trips to bars and festivals to listen to potential bands. We were not satisfied with what we heard and were really discouraged. The RiverTown Band was mentioned and we loved their promo videos and their song list. To be honest, we were very hesitant to book the band without actually watching them. They only book private events and weddings, because they are THAT good!! It's an investment and you want to be sure. I can't even shout this loud enough...BOOK THEM!!! You will not be disappointed and all your guests will be saying "This is the best band ever!" Our guests were on the dance floor all night! We let the band take control of the song list and they played everything! They are seriously so talented and you will be so happy! They were the true highlight to our reception and they kept playing music all night long and were interactive with the crowd. They brought us up on stage and we were ready to sing! Such a wonderful and fun moment, we will never ever forget! It was such a pleasure working with Leslie and Scott through the entire planning process. They were so helpful! I want to thank everyone in the band and tell everyone to book The RiverTown Band for your wedding!!! It's more than worth it!

River Town Bank is the GREATEST  band! They are amazing and their overall performance is outstanding. They are very professional and easy going.  I first saw them at a large Shands charity event and they had everyone dancing. After seeing them at that event, my husband and I set our wedding date on a Friday instead of a Saturday just so they could play at our wedding (based on their availability). It is the best decision we made for our wedding, everyone danced, even people that never dance at weddings. 


Scott did an wonderful job MCing the reception. Our guest said it was the smoothest, best timed reception.

I would not do anything differently. I am glad I spent the money on the 10 piece band.

The band never took a break so that kept everyone dancing and the guest did not leave the reception early.  Also, they learned our favorite song!!!!!!!!!!!!!

During my reception, everyone kept coming up to me asking me where did I find this amazing band????? Rivertown Band absolutely killed it!! I was so impressed by the musicianship and quality vocalists this band has. The room was perfectly balanced! Everyone had the best time and dancing which was my

#1 goal besides getting married. My parents were raving!!! Everyone was raving!! They even let me come on stage and sing with them! They had fun crowd interactions and never slowed down the beat of the party! We had such a wonderful night and Rivertown was instrumental in making it so memorable! Thank you all so much from the bottom of my heart! We also hired their guitarist for our ceremony who was super talented and fun to work with. He knew every song I asked him to play and was fun to work with.

One other major thing to note. During the planning process- Scott was super quick to respond and offer advice or recommendations which I valued a lot. He was super professional and helpful. Everyone about working with this band was seamless. I cannot recommend them enough!

When I started wedding planning, I had very few things that really mattered to me. 1. Getting married 2. There was a great band for our reception! We blew it out of the water with The Rivertown Band!!!! We used a trio that played during our cocktail hour which was held outside. 

Once dinner started, they played music that was a great background and they also played our first dances (my husband and I, Father/Daughter and Mother/Son). Once it was time for some dancing, everyone was ready for an awesome time and the band delivered! Our family and friends don’t really need much coaxing to get out on the dance floor, but the dance floor was absolutely packed as soon as the dancing started and it never stopped until the reception was over. They were great about reading the crowd and overall did a phenomenal job. I had several people ask who they were and where we found them, so hopefully we will be seeing them again at some future weddings!

This band was so AWESOME!!!!! Our guests had such a good time and Tim and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I really wish we could have had the party last all night long, so worth every penny! We also asked the band to learn our first dance for us. The song is actually from a European artist and we decided to do a coordinated dance to it. We were nervous about how everything would fall together, on the day of though, it was amazing!! The song they learned for us was perfect and truly made our day even more special!!


Highly recommend to anyone who is getting married and wants to make sure that their reception is one to be remembered!!!!!!

From the get-go, I knew I wanted a band to play at our wedding…it took Steven a while to get on board, but once we started looking around for one, he was hooked. I soon became discouraged after spending hours looking through pages and pages of bands. Thankfully, Steven had more patience than I did and continued to search for the perfect band. Once he found a few that he liked, we sat down and listened to them. Immediately, I fell in love with The Rivertown Band and we quickly contacted them in the hopes of them being available for our wedding, as well as willing to drive 5+ hours. Thankfully, they were available and more than happy to drive. We were so excited and couldn’t wait to begin working with them. Scott was so easy to work with, and he was always quick to respond to emails. He helped us to stay on top of things in regards to the music part of the reception and wanted to make sure that everything went smoothly from the time we walked in to the time we left. They were AMAZING and were everything we imagined and more! They really out did themselves, and we had so many compliments about them…everyone LOVED y’all! I wish we could throw another wedding just so we could have them come back and play again. I really cannot describe how remarkable this band is…they’re voices are amazing, their song choices were perfect for what we envisioned our reception to be like, and they interacted with the crowd. I love how they came onto the dance floor and joined in with us, while they continued to sing. They also let us come up on stage and sing a couple of songs with them…so much fun!! As mention before, I am more than happy with our choice of band and I could not imagine not having them at our wedding. Thank you again for all y'alls hard work. Y'all were truly amazing to work with and made the experience so fun and exciting. Hope we will get to see y'all again in the future!!

I am so happy to have worked with you at my wedding! You guys were great. I really appreciate the band literally rolling with the punches and setting up in a different location at the last minute to make my outdoor wedding a reality! It worked out perfectly and I'm really glad that I stuck with my gut feeling that it would NOT rain during and after the ceremony. Our guests have been raving about how great you guys sounded and how much fun they had dancing. Even though the dance floor was wet from rain earlier in the day, that did not stop our guests from dancing nonstop! I really enjoyed working with Scott in the months before to make sure everything was just the way we wanted. I will definitely recommend them to everyone I know having any kind of party in the Jacksonville area.

It was SUCH  a pleasure working with you and the rest of the band. I actually took a few business cards because I really enjoyed you all so much. Bands are sometimes the hardest thing for me to refer to brides because I feel like we don't have a ton of good bands locally. I was very impressed with all of your talent and especially how easy it was working with you as well. I am good friends with Ashley and Greg (the photographers) and we kept saying how we hope more brides book you. I will most certainly get your name out there and refer you to any brides I can! Please let me know if you should need anything; look forward to working with you again!

Incredible....the highlight of our wedding in St Augustine. Minus a brief intermission, they played for 2.5 hours without interruption. A great mix of classics and new stuff, they kept the dance floor packed until the last song. Versatile, talented, and energetic. Their version of our first dance, learned specifically for our wedding, was beautiful. Timely with songs used from our iPod. Highly recommended for your wedding or any event. Scott was accomodating, communicative and very helpful with recommendations. These guys know how to entertain and are well-worth the money.


We absolutely LOVED you guys! There are not enough words to describe how much we appreciate everything! It was a dream to work with you and you went above and beyond. Every last guest said that you were one of the best bands they had ever heard playing at a wedding and that you had totally made the evening! The ability to read the crowd was amazing... no micromanagement needed here at all, which is such a great thing when there's so much else going on! I have no complaints at all about you guys... fabulous from first contact to last song! Only wish we could have gone longer!

The Rivertown Band was extremely accommodating for our wedding reception. We met with Scott and he talked with us at length about exactly how we wanted everything to go. The band kept everyone engaged and entertained throughout the evening. They entertained the crowd that was there, and didn't just play a pre-established routine. Most importantly, they sounded GREAT and were a lot of fun! The Rivertown Band were a huge part of a successful reception and everyone complimented us on how good the band was. Our wedding venue even mentioned that they would start recommending the band to future clients!

We thank you for your support of the Rotaract Club of Florida's First Coast's ninth annual Black Tie and Blue Jeans Gala.  Your performance was very much enjoyed by the guests at the Gala.  Thanks to the kindness of our vendors, including you, we were able to give a donation of over $23,000 to the Morning Star School.  We hope to work with your band again in the future.

YOU, OF COURSE, ROCK!  I cannot begin to tell you of the overwhelming 

response we had to The RiverTown Band!   It struck me that the reason 

you get the kind of response you do is because the band entertains 

rather than performs.  There is a big difference.   From audience 

participation to the performance of "Thriller" to some Garth in the house, our guests were blown away!  It is so refreshing to work with consummate professionals.


Saturday morning, I cranked up some Four Seasons "Oh, What a Night" as 

my "music to get ready to work by."   Thanks y'all for helping make our 

campaign kickoff party a success and creating a celebratory atmosphere that will surely be a topic around the water cooler this morning.

The RiverTown Band was everything and more than we could have hoped for.  Their true, raw talent and energy surpassed any expectations we had, but it was their engagement to our group that made them perfect.  They listened to what we wanted for the event and made it happen.  Our group loved them from the minute they started playing and we didn't want the party to end.  I would recommend them to anyone for their talent, kindness, energy and obvious passion for music.  They were a delight to work with and am so very hopeful that we will be able to use them in the future.  The RiverTown Band ROCKS!

Personal Celebration

The Rivertown Band did not "Just" play and sing music, they orchestrated the tone of our event which gave the guests and my husband and I an experience of a lifetime! I'm from Nashville TN so I'm very picky about live music - I really didn't expect to receive a big city performance experience from a local Jacksonville band, these guys could easily go pro-recording to a lable if they wanted too. I can't imagine what else they could have done to top the performance that they gave! Equipment to talent these guys were on their game!

When my wife Brittany and I were looking for a band to perform at our wedding, we were looking for top of the line musicians who understood the importance of the evening. RiverTown was a perfect fit from start to finish. They played a great variety of songs that had the people on there feet and dancing whether it was fast or slow. Our night just wouldn't have been the same without this excellent band!

We hired the RiverTown Band for our wedding two years ago and they were great. They played the songs we wanted, opened with a nice jazzy instrumental for the first 30 minutes so our guests could talk and get food and drinks without dance music happening. Then they played some great dance music. Fun was had by all. I would highly recommend using the RiverTown band for your next party.

Debutante Ball

We had the pleasure of having the River Town Band perform at my daughters debutante party this past December. We began working with them in the fall selecting songs and giving them our requests in which they gladly learned for our party. The band played all types of music for our guest to enjoy. Compliments about the band were positive by those who were there. The girls along with our guest had a wonderful time singing and dancing the night away. I would encourage anyone who is looking to hire a band for their special occasion to look no farther than here.

When my husband and I were planning our wedding, we wanted a band that would fit our personality. The first time we heard The River Town Band, we knew they were perfect for our special day. The River Town Band was amazing to work with, and they catered to our every need. Plus, our guest LOVED them! They were perfect for our guests, and played music that fit every age group. We would highly recommend using The River Town Band at your next event.

I spent quite a bit of time searching for a band to perform at my daughter's wedding.  I was looking for a band that could play music that was familiar to guests from ages 16 to 60.  I wanted a band that could keep the party alive, but also make announcements at the appropriate time (wedding party arrival, cake cutting, etc).  I was not satisfied with the options locally in Tallahassee, and began an Internet search.  After reviewing hours of band clips on the Internet, I selected The Rivertown Band.  I was a bit nervous choosing a band from out of town, and one I had not seen perform live.  However, I could not have made a better selection.


My wife and I drove to Jacksonville and met with Scott Coleman, the band leader.  We were immediately put at ease by his relaxed demeanor and flexibility.  We hired the band on the spot.  Thereafter, I exchanged a few emails with Scott  and had a couple of conversations with him.  He made suggestions along the way that were very helpful.


On the wedding day, my biggest fear was that one of the vendors (bartender, photographer, videographer, band) was not going to show up.  However, everything fell into place.  The band arrived early and began setting up.  They brought all the lights and sound with them.  Each band member was cheerful and happy to be there.  Their professionalism was evident.  Not only were they great musicians, but they were comfortable in the setting.  The band played the right mix of music to keep the party going, interacted with the guests (including getting me on stage with sunglasses and other props), and knew when and how to conduct the traditional portions of the reception (bouquet/garter toss etc) in an exciting manner.   


One of the most emotionally moving portions of the reception was the daddy/daughter dance.  At my request, the band learned a special song ("Stealing Cinderella) and performed it perfectly, bringing many of the guests to happy tears.  The Rivertown Band exceeded my expectations. The band members work well together, were completely in sync, and their enthusiasm was contagious. Guests who attended the reception continue to comment to me about the fun they had with The Rivertown Band.  


I highly recommend The Rivertown Band.  They are reliable, experienced, enthusiastic and great musicians.  They provide a fun time for all ages and make the event a memorable one.  When the next of my remaining three daughters gets married, I will again be calling on The Rivertown Band.

AMAZING! Here is our review from Wedding Wire: We feel SO lucky to have found The RiverTown Band for our wedding! Before hearing about The RiverTown Band we had originally booked a different band for our wedding. We signed the contract with the other band & placed a deposit about 6 months prior to our wedding date. As our wedding got closer & closer we realized we had made a mistake. The band we had previously hired was not returning our emails or our Wedding Planner's emails & up to 3 months before the wedding they still had not provided us with a set list (which we had requested multiple times). At about this time our Wedding Planner gave us our options: Stick with our current band and hope for the best (and keep our fingers crossed they show up & actually play music we like) OR forfeit our deposit to book the RiverTown Band. Our wedding planner HIGHLY recommended The RiverTown Band and advised us to research them online. After checking out their website & reviewing their set list (which was readily available to us & included all of our favorite songs) we decided to make the switch. WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID! BEST DECISION WE MADE! The RiverTown Band were EVERYTHING you would want from a wedding band & more! They were extremely professional, easy going, and SO MUCH FUN! They made the Reception a party- which is exactly what we wanted. Everyone was up & about dancing throughout the night! Our favorite part was the surprise Karaoke session at the end of the night. Such a blast! Thank you RiverTown Band for making our wedding the best night of our lives! 


Thank you again for everything! You truly made our Reception amazing and as my mom said "made the rain go away". We had the BEST time and we had tons of guests tell us you were the best wedding band they had ever seen. We can't thank you enough for making it a party everyone will always remember.
