Rivertown were absolutely awesome! I have never seen some of our family members dance and get into the music like that night. Lots of memories! They were the nicest and not to mention coolest band.

Thank you for all your help! It was unforgettable.

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.

Corporate Event

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!

Taylor Maxwell

Groom

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.

Matt Kwartler

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.
