Named both as "Best Band" by Richmond Magazine, and "Best Cover Band" by STYLE Weekly for five years running (2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014, and 2015), Three Sheets to the Wind is America's #1 Tribute to Yacht Rock.

Three Sheets to the Wind pays authentic tribute to AM Gold classics from the '70s and '80s--undoubtedly the smoothest music ever created by mankind. It was an era of high gas prices and oil embargoes that led America back to the simple joys of sailing, pina coladas, moustaches, and love...sweet love.

The heartbeat of the band is short-shorted drummer Danny Marnier. Bass duties fall to steady shipmate Sonny Pockett, Saccharine saxophone sweetnees is provided by Mr. JC Cool, while manly keyboardist Walter Ego, guitarist Captain Max Power, and the ever-dapper multi-instrumentalist Topper Dandy rock you gently with their sincere vocal delivery and sweeter-than-TaB harmonies.

An excellent choice for the discerning event planner who "gets it," Three Sheets to the Wind boasts several wedding-related accolades including being named among the top 5% of wedding professionals from WeddingWire for 2013, 2014, and 2015. Utilizing the best available technology including direct amping, and in-ear monitors, the band is volume-appropriate for every event. The band considers itself to be the "wedding band for people who hate wedding bands," and looks forward to helping you create the greatest night of your life™.

When your party needs a little extra kick, Three Sheets to the Wind will appear with world renowned three-piece brass section, The Rounding Cape Horns. Book at your own risk and hide your daughters, though, because the combined talents of this outrageous octet are smoother than Billy Dee Williams--and rest assured that it works...every time. It's time to weigh anchor and sail away with Three Sheets to the Wind!

Taste of Virginia Festival

Thank you for a job well done! I continue to hear from folks how much they enjoyed Three Sheets to the Wind!  Sadly, I did not get to hear much of your performance but that was only because the event was such a huge success and our team was frenetically busy trying to make sure we were handling all of the details.  

You and your band made our first Innsbrook Taste of Virginia truly special and we appreciate all you did to add class and fun to our event!  I will certainly let you know of other opportunities as they arise.  We are already planning for the next Taste of Virginia and I will keep you posted as we fill in the details.

Three Sheets to the Wind exceeded our expectations as our wedding band. We live in Richmond and have seen them in concert many times before, however having them play during our wedding reception was on another level. They traveled to our wedding location in the Outer Banks and were able to set up all of their equipment in what I considered to be a tight space. They were very interactive with our guests who were dancing literally, all night long. We got so many compliments from our guests on how fun and spectacular the band was. I highly recommend them as a wedding band.



On our wedding day, the weather was awful and morale was low. But when Three Sheets performed, nothing else mattered!!!! They gave one of the best performances ever at my wedding and literally saved the day!

Mother of the Bride

It really doesn't get any better than this. The band is incredible! My daughter told me the most important thing to her concerning her reception is having Three Sheets play. After seeing them at the NorVA, I was sold. The wedding was absolutely amazing. The reception was over the top thanks to Three Sheets. Communication is so important when planning such an important, meaningful event and this band nailed it every step of the way, from start to finish. The process was very easy and stress free. The band was punctual, professional, and more than accommodating. EVERYBODY loved them! It was the perfect evening. People who normally refuse to get near a dance floor proudly danced and had a blast. These guys are super talented, friendly, gracious and a whole lotta fun! I would totally do this again.

Martha P.

Father of the Bride

Holy smokes! Thank you so much for helping to make our dear Brittny's wedding so wonderful. It was absolutely amazing and Three Sheets were a big part of it.

Everyone had a blast. I know you hear that a lot and you certainly deserve to.

You have a great 'crew'. It was super cool hanging out with you all afterwards 

The whole experience made for the perfect night. Our family is slightly obsessed with the band. Can't wait to see you guys again.

We had Three Sheets play at our wedding this past Saturday, every positive review already written is absolutely, 100% true. From our initial request for information through the end of the reception, the band leader, Jack (aka Topper Dandy), was professional, responsive, and seemed genuinely pumped to have us as clients. At the actual wedding, they were incredible. EVERYONE DANCED ALL NIGHT, even the family members that never dance. We've received more compliments on Three Sheets than on anything else at our wedding, by far. 

At our morning after brunch, a friend of ours commented that she drank less than she usually does at weddings, because she was having so much fun on the dance floor she didn't want to leave to go to the bar. And everyone else in the room agreed with her!! I honestly can't think of a nicer compliment than that, and you'd agree with me if you knew how this crew normally reacts to an open bar :) 

Just book them, I promise you won't regret it! Oh, and get a bigger dance floor than the rental company recommends, you're going to need it!!

I greatly enjoyed working with Three Sheets to the Wind! They assisted me in surprising my Groom with his favorite Yacht Rock entertainers which was a multi-month process. We received nothing but compliments from all of our guests both young and old. We could not have asked for better entertainment!

Kate S.


As soon as my husband and I began planning our wedding we knew that one of our utmost priorities would be locking in great music that all of our guests would enjoy. We knew immediately that we HAD to have Three Sheets for our reception and we were so lucky to have booked them! 

I cannot emphasize enough just how much of a hit they were—no matter if it was the grandparents, fratboy college friends or young cousins, Three Sheets had them all yacht-rocking the night away. Our dance floor was completely packed and we could see people singing along with every word of the songs. It was such a relief knowing that we were in expert hands to Emcee the whole evening and keep the reception flowing smoothly. They were also such professionals to learn a specific song we requested for our first dance—and it sounded amazing. We’ll never forget it. We felt like we had our very own concert on our big day—what an honor! If you want a band that will keep all of your guests thoroughly entertained, look no further and book them as soon as you possibly can.

Three Sheets to the Wind was everything my husband and I could have hoped for! They were happy to learn our wedding song and play it for our first dance and also worked on the set list with us! They had the dance floor packed for hours and everyone had a blast! They were professional, flexible, fun, and energetic!

Molly N.


The band is fantastic, funny, and extremely professional. Our wedding was perfect and the band was the best part of our reception. Worth every penny!

Graham - Sorry it has taken me a while to get back to you school is a bit crazy right now. Three Sheets did an unbelievable job at the party. The outfits alone got everyone excited and once they started, the night got crazy. The music was perfect and everyone loved it. The party went all night and we will them back again soon.

Hey Graham, The party was a tremendous success. It was literally the best day party I've been to at UVa. The band was extremely laid back during setup and really flexible given our limited space on the lawn. As soon as the music started we knew we had made a great decision. The band had a a great sound and playlist, not to mention were the most hilarious musicians we've ever had at PIKA. Now that we know what yacht rock actually sounds like, we would definitely recommend them to other groups here. We owe a big thanks to you and East Coast for sending them our way. Three Sheets was the freshest act that's come through PIKA in awhile and we'll certainly get them again! Best,

Social Chair, UVA PiKA

Special Event

Thank you for putting on an incredible show!  I don't think I've ever seen a Maymont crowd happier with a band.  Thanks for bearing with us through the technical difficulties, and for creatively dealing with the challenges. The conga line during our generator troubles was inspired. You guys were a blast to have at the event, and you were a pleasure to work with.  Please feel free to use us as a reference - I'll tell everyone they have to book you for their next big event! - Kristen B.

College Event

It was by far the best party I've been to at Sweet Briar (and I've been to about 95% of them...and I'm not saying that because I was a co-host, either! Having y'all there made the party!!  What really made y'all stand out was how y'all interacted with us.  I LOVED that.  Anyone can hook up their computer and play music, but it takes talent to entertain as well.   I'm sure you'll be back at Sweet Briar soon! -Mary Elizabeth H.

Private Party

Hey Graham - Three Sheets to the Wind was absolutely incredible. I haven't seen our bunker that packed in a while and everyone loved their style and stage presence. They knew how to put on a spectacular show and it was kind of a different genre and feel from what we have gotten recently which was cool. They do yacht rock superbly.

Hey Graham - Sorry for the delay on the report for the band. I just wanted to let you know that they were great. I think that the alumni had a great time and we sure loved listening to the music. The band was very easy to work with and lots of fun. I would certainly book them again for just about any event. - Thanks for setting this up,

Thank you so much for the wonderful job the band did for our Monday night event! It was so great having them and I really appreciate them being flexible and moving indoors due to the weather.

We hope to work with you all again soon!

Thanks so much, Topper! It was a night no one will forget and people are still talking about your stellar performance. The ambience couldn't have been better with the ocean breeze in the background as wedding guests danced their butts off. Some comments we've received since the wedding:

"I realized that after this the only thing you need to have a fun wedding is a great band." - Aunt

"They got someone to dance for hours who normally steers clear of the dance floor." - Guest

"I can't keep my feet still when I hear the smooth sounds of Three Sheets!" - Bride

I think these simple statements prove that you guys know how to take a party to that next level... a level at which we wanted to be! We can't thank you enough for traveling down to the beach and showing our guests one hell of a good time. We look forward to visiting you at the Republic soon and anywhere else you may be.

Please let us know if you need anything else from us. Hope to see you soon!!

Thanks a million times over!

Three Sheets did a phenomenal job playing at our wedding after-party. Even though my feet hurt, I could not stop dancing! This group has amazing energy, perfect sound, and an incredible set list. Our friends and family are STILL raving about this band, months later. Highly recommend!

Natalie S, Bride


I absolutely loved working with Three Sheets to the Wind! They were incredibly fun and made the wedding! All my friends and my family's friends were talking about was the band. They played amazing music and did a great job of keeping the party going! I would use them again in a heart beat!

Julz A, Bride


Three Sheets made the party for us! We were looking to host a celebration of the day, our families and friends who led us to that day and to each other. We wanted a fun time, light and not too stuffy and Three Sheets was perfect! They offered to learn any song for our first dance and even played some beautiful music for us during the ceremony for the prelude and recessional. The following party was great and the band interacted with us and our guests making for a great time by all! The planning process was crisp, the band was on-time and prepared and packed up quickly to allow the space to be cleaned to close out the rental. I would recommend them to anyone who's looking for a fun, light and celebratory reception!

Josh B, Groom


EVERYONE was dancing! I work in the restaurant industry and our wedding of 200 was an eclectic mix of grandparents and older family mixed with young 24 year old tattooed folks with nose rings and EVERYONE DANCED! Three Sheets is fun, energetic, great at reading the crowd and getting people on their feet. The guys were very professional. Punctual on the day of, and very communicative leading up to the day. Would highly recommend!

Jessica B, Bride


Three Sheets to the Wind is the epitome of a dream wedding vendor!! I would give them 6 stars if I could! I can't say enough positive things about working with them. From the beginning when we booked them they were always flexible, responsive, and listened to what we wanted. They learned a new song, at no extra charge, for our first dance and it was one of the highlights of the night for sure. They were never difficult or picky about what was needed from their end. They make it a point to be a fun-loving group of talented guys who simply want to give your guests an unforgettable night. After our wedding my aunt said, "After tonight, I realized that the only thing you need in order to have a fun wedding is an amazing band." Book them if you want the dance floor filled all night long. We can't thank them enough!

Charity Fundraiser

From planning to execution, it's always a pleasure to work with Three Sheets to the Wind on our annual fundraiser, Massey on the River. They are always willing to work with us to make the event entertaining as well as philanthropic. We so appreciate their efforts each year on behalf of Massey. Always great to know in partnering with Three Sheets, your event quickly becomes the must-attend event of the season!

I had a wonderful experience working with Topper in the lead-up to the wedding event itself. He's extremely responsive, accommodating and informative. On the wedding day, Topper was an outstanding MC'er too. The music itself was absolutely fantastic - the genres of music they play appeal to everyone - your parents, your friends, the 30 year old frat stars, your 21 year old hipster cousin from LA, even your great aunt Marge. Their execution is fun, flawless and - not to be overlooked - their audio guy is exceptional too. Your guests will have an amazing time, everyone who interacts with them (your coordinator, your mother-in-law, etc.) will have a positive experience. 100% emphatic recommendation.

Three Sheets to the Wind is amazing, and I can not recommend this band enough! As an event coordinator, Three Sheets is the best band you could ask for... they're accommodating and have great energy, they play songs that will get everyone dancing, and they appeal to all age groups. I recommend this band to all of my event hosts and brides, and enjoy them so much that I go see them locally whenever I can!

I recently coordinated for Three Sheets to play at an event for our members, and we have never received such glowing feedback. Everyone was on the dance floor nonstop, and the consensus was that the band was the highlight of the night. I have seen countless bands in my line of work, and can honestly say that when the time comes for me to get married, I wouldn't want anyone else to play my reception.

40th Birthday Party

I had the best time on Saturday and the reviews have been coming in as "great", "so fun", "perfect", "totally awesome"! That is in part largely to you and your band of merry men! You guys were spectacular and beyond easy to work with!

You are all top of the list of party must haves!

Thank you again for making my 40th beyond bodacious!

Birthday Party

I hired Three Sheets to the Wind to play at a surprise birthday party, and I could not be more pleased. Particularly impressive was their execution of a tricky Beatles song that they learned specifically for the party. Three Sheets went beyond all my expectations and made the event truly unique and memorable. Good luck trying to find a more talented, clever, and ridiculously sexy group of musicians! Rock on (softly) boys.

When it came time to plan our wedding, the first thing we did was book Three Sheets. After having seen them play at local events, they were our one and only choice for wedding entertainment. Topper was incredibly easy to work with! He was very responsive, flexible, and genuinely interested in making sure the event was special to us. There was some skepticism amongst guests about a wedding band: would the music appeal to everyone? would it be too loud? lousy banter? When the big night came, all doubts were cast away! Three Sheets managed to get EVERY SINGLE GUEST (no joke, literally every guest in the room) on the floor and dancing with their great mix of tunes that appeals to everyone, the sound was set perfectly (I could easily hear conversations with guests around me), and Topper's MC-ing was fun and spot on. After the wedding, I still get comments from guests asking if we can get married again just to see Three Sheets play. If you want a truly memorable reception, get these guys and get it turned up to 11!
