I LOVED them!! If I can afford them I definitely want them at my own wedding which will hopefully be sometime in the next year or so ;)
Charlotte Country Club
If words could even begin to describe the first rate show that Jim and the Voltage Brothers put on for us this past Saturday night in Southport, NC, we might crash the internet.
Sometimes, delivering an simple, "Thank you" says it all. I hope that our humble gratitude will be accepted in this way for the unbelievably high energy of the band, the truly professional quality of their music, the inclusive nature of their delivery, their flexibility in catering to the crowd throughout the entire evening and as I came to find out on Sunday, the high class handling of a party goer who thought he was part of the band (my apologies to you and the band Jim.).
We received more compliments and high praises on our choice of the band throughout the night and for the few days that followed. These guys (and lady) successfully kept 150 people on the dance floor for every bit of the four hours they played! Believe me when I tell you that if you knew the personalities of the crowd like Amy and I do, this was no small feat. It is a true testament to how Jim and his team have mastered their craft, not only of being incredibly gifted musicians and singers but as importantly - entertainers.
There was plenty going on all around them that would have distracted lesser professionals - but not the Voltage Brothers. Jim and his group did exactly what he said they were going to do....They slayed it! Sure, we had a good crowd on hand, but The Voltage Brothers made this event a hit beyond our wildest expectations. From Amy and my first dance, Ingrid Michaelson's, "The Way I Am" (The Voltage Brothers learned this song especially for us.) to special dances with parents (Perfect selections for those involved), the rhythmic roller coaster that the band led us through for the majority of the evening and concluding with "Blue Eyed Girl" where the wedding party sang along and Last Dance - we had an absolute blast! I have a feeling massage spas and physical therapists in parts across the U.S. are recipients of unexpected clients this week as those who danced the night away look to speed their recovery!
Jim, thank you also for taking the time to get to know Amy and I in the months leading up to the wedding. Your desire to get to know us beyond the information contained in the contract are genuinely appreciated. As we sped through the night (those four hours felt like only a few minutes), Amy and I realized that while there may be many bands out there, the first and only that people should be looking to for a truly one of a kind experience is the Voltage Brothers.
Thank you many times over for helping to make our wedding night truly unique and memorable!
We look forward to seeing you again in the future....
Dave & Amy
Bride and Groom
Words cannot explain just how fabulous our PICOR 2009, "Oh, What a Night" Holiday was. Jerry and Johnny were absolutely hilarious, as well as, kind. It was the perfect way to begin the evening. The Voltage Brothers..... are simply the best....The hotel just called and said that was, without a doubt, the best band that had ever performed at The Carnegie. The music, the horns, the voices, the professionalism.....Tony and I, along with the staff danced the night away. Every song they played was 100% perfect. The Voltage Brothers are one talented group of musicians. We were honored to have them perform and look forward to our next event. Ellie, thank-you for your recommendation....Our party lived up to its title, "Oh, What a Night"..... This remarkable talent made for a memorable evening that will be cherish always!! Kindest Regards,
Donna & Tony W.
Everything went great with the 4th of July. The crew did a great job, and I would recommend them anytime. The Voltage Brothers was the perfect band for our event. The crowd really loved them, and they played a great variety of music for the diverse crowd. If anyone ever wants to talk to someone that has used the Voltage Brothers feel free to give them my contact. I will give them praise and tell them about the exceptional job. Jim Kelly was very professional and was great to work with.
City of Reidsville
The Voltage Brothers were absolutely wonderful! They haven't lost any of their talent over the years! Their attitudes were excellent and they were wonderful to work with. They played a great variety of music for our students, and we were very happy with them!
Student Services, Glenville State College
To be real honest with you they were GREAT!!!!!! I talked to them earlier in the week as they called me. We confirmed everything for the party and that was a first for me. They were there as they said. The nicest people you would want to work with and be around. They conformed to our needs and impressed our members by going around and talking with them about there program and how they were doing. You don't get that very often and it was very refreshing. I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone for performance,quality and being nice professional people. Thank you and The Voltage Bros. for making our function great. Send to me suggestion list for entertainment for Christmas function on December 3, 2010 at Pinehurst.
Viola, it was incredible!!! Thank you for all of your hard work with us, everyone LOVED them!!!
I cannot wait to work with you again.
Cory W. (1/12/13)
Steve, they were amazing. Everything we wanted and more. Everyone was on the dance floor from start to end and for so many folks coming from New Orleans who are real music lovers, they could not believe how great they were. We could not have been happier. Thanks so much and will definitely keep in mind for future events however, they will be in New Orleans so not sure what it costs for them to come here. But I can tell you everyone of our friends and family asked where we found them so you were one popular guy!!!
Carol A. (April 27th, 2013)
I just got back to work, and YES, everything was fantastic from my perspective!!!! It was AMAZING!!! They did such a wonderful job - I couldn't have asked for a better or more fun band! They kept the crowd engaged and entertained all evening. My husband was so disappointed when they announced the last song and he looked at his watch and realized that the evening was over!
Many friends asked about who you were and how we got your name, so I anticipate a few more bookings in the Raleigh area shortly! Some of our guests recognized you all from a wedding the weekend before and they were so excited to be having you again.
I met Jim and your husband Ray, just sorry you weren't there as well - I would have loved to have met you.
Be sure to tell the band - other than the awesome music, one of my favorite memories of the night was when they confused my son with the groom. It was hilarious - and please assure them they were not the only ones to do it! (I hope they weren't embarrassed by it - we all got such a kick out of it, especially since everyone comments on how much they look alike!)
We had a fabulous evening and really appreciated how much fun you all made our reception.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The band could not have been better! Viola was a pleasure to work with and the band did a fabulous job. There were rave reviews all around from ALL age groups! The dance floor was packed for the entire reception! Most frequently asked question was Where in the world did you find these guys?
We could not be more pleased with the band and the experience with EastCoast.
Thank you for helping make this wedding such a memorable event!

A belated thank you for your help in booking The Voltage Brothers for our wedding in Raleigh on July 6. They were exactly what we were looking for. Very easy to work with and definitely made the evening a success.
Randy C. (July 6th, 2013)
Thank you for checking in with me! We had the most amazing wedding and The Voltage Brothers exceeded all of our expectations. They were very flexible as we made some adjustments to the schedule due to weather and I can't say enough positive things about their performance. Thank you and please pass along our feedback!
Catie K. (August 31st, 2013)
I hope that this e-mail finds you well! I would like to praise the Voltage Brothers on not only their performance, but also on the overall attitude and demeanor. You may know, the reception got rained out about 45 minutes into the bands set- we were prepared and had trash bags ready, but I was not prepared for how AMAZING they were to work with, and their ability to reset and get the energy back up and moving for the guests in a matter of about 20 minutes. I know that this attitude is very rare, and I was so thankful for their efforts! I would love to work with them again, and I hope that they had a good experience as welI! I heard comments throughout the crowd that this was the best reception they had ever been too- and that has a lot to do with the band!!
Please let everyone know that I was so very pleased to have worked with them, and I look forward to doing so again in the future!
Maren W. (September 21st, 2013)
The band was the talk of the party! You all were fabulous. Hope you arrived safely home and can enjoy Christmas with your family. Then on to the next party!!! Thanks again, you made it so easy and it was a pleasure working with you. Happy and Healthy New Year to all the Voltage Brothers.
