Sucker Punch was wonderful. They arrived early and had everything set-up on time. They played the songs we requested and had the dance floor packed all night. They were professional and very friendly. We were very happy that we went with them!!
I just wanted to tell you that Suckerpunch was great and we could not have asked for anything better! It was exactly the style and kind of music we envisioned and everyone had a blast. They were a lot of fun and I enjoyed talking to Tim and the other members. Great group of people and super nice.
Suckerpunch was fabulous! They were even better than we expected. Everything sounded incredible. They played all the songs we wanted. We could not be happier.
Formal went incredibly well, and people are still coming up to me raving about Suckerpunch. They played a great variety of songs across different genres, all of which were danceable and catchy. They had a lot of energy and were generally just really well received. The only snag we ran into was that they got caught in traffic coming in, and ended up starting at 9 instead of at 8. Tim was really communicative throughout, and they did have music playing starting a little bit before 8 so that people were still able to dance. (The W&L culture of formals is such that most people come after 9 anyway; until 8:30 it was just the officers and sisters who have to be there the whole time.) Overall I really enjoyed working with Suckerpunch and our sorority absolutely loved having them at formal!
We are on our honeymoon, and I definitely plan to write full reviews when I get back. For now, just wanted to let you know that Suckerpunch did an amazing job- we couldn't be happier. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone said great things about them. Apparently Suzi had strep, but you would not have known it from the performance she gave- I had no idea until someone told me the following day. You have been great, and I would definitely recommend East Coast and Suckerpunch! Thanks again!!
Just wanted to shoot you an email and say Suckerpunch was fantastic last night. Everyone was really impressed with them and had a great time. Tim was super helpful and all the members were so nice. Thanks so much for all your help this semester! We really appreciate it and are looking forward to next semester.

Suckerpunch was absolutely amazing! They played a really great mix of songs and had funny little comments that everyone thought were hilarious. We were a little worried at first because Tim told me that their lead singer was sick and in the hospital, but they did have 3 singers alternating in her place, and they were all great! It was really nice of them to find people on such short notice and not cancel last minute because of her sickness. Basically, formal was great- Suckerpunch really made it enjoyable, and without them it would have just been a lame party with a DJ. I'm really glad we were able to work things out with them! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Suckerpunch was awesome. Their setup looked spectacular, they MCd the night perfectly (with all the toasts, first dances, caking cutting, etc), and they sounded awesome. The dance floor was packed from the minute the band started playing until we made our exit. They oozed energy and fun.
I can't say enough good things about the band. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any weddings. Also, thank you for all of your help in helping us land a great wedding band.
Suckerpunch was great. They were very flexible with us given the circumstances -- bands coming and going, alumni everywhere, and a space that they did not know very well. They put on a great show (the first in our new dining hall) and everyone had an absolute blast. I never once though the music they were playing was out of the range, and they pleasantly surprised me with some awesome covers. Overall, an awesome show and I hope we get another opportunity to bring them back to TI.
