The music makes the wedding. I believe this strongly. If you pick the wrong band, the tone of the night is lost and your guests are left wanting more. The Crab Shack Band BRINGS the music. They ARE the party. Their mix of songs and energetic front vocalists backed by tight timing and smooth transitions keeps the party moving.

They are professional. On time. Dependable. They look great. They sound even better.
My guests are still talking about them.

Fiesty, Fun, Perfect!

The Crab Shack Band is so amazing! Everyone in the band is extremely talented, the female vocalist is a powerhouse!
They are very accommodating when it comes to the music, they already have a great set list but are more than happy to learn anything you would like to hear! They definitely know how to get a crowd engaged and dance and they have a lot of fun doing it. I would highly recommend The Crab Shack Band to anyone!!

What a night! We narrowed it down to 3 band but picked The Crab Shack Band due to their flexibility and variety. Perfect momentum worked the intensity at the right pace and had an overall natural ability to keep the dance floor packed. Which was great for us as they danced more, drank less!

 WOW just WOW! The Crab Shack Band is amazing! We LOVED working with them from the beginning and then they truly made our wedding a special and incredibly fun event! Chris was wonderful to work with, very professional and an overall nice guy (as is everyone in the band). Their music is FANTASTIC! Amazing set list that all generations can enjoy and REALLY REALLY GREAT sound! Two female vocalist is awesome and they kill it, but the rest of the band is just as good, great drums and guitars (for example music fans out there- Eric can actually play really well the guitar solo in sweet child of mine what!? never expected that!). Everyone at our wedding couldn't stop raving about the band! The music was great but they were also very interactive with our guests, kept everyone dancing and even let our musician friends get up on stage and play with them! I really can't recommend The Crab Shack Band enough! They are a hidden gem that will inevitably be found out and booked every weekend. I would absolutely hire them again!!! Thanks Chris and the Band, you guys were an EXCELLENT addition to our wedding!!.

"Their variety of music, and the band's ability to read the crowd is outstanding! No one could resist getting up on their feet. The Crab Shack Band is a pleasure to work with"!

Chris and the rest of the band are great! ...Our clients absolutely love them, and there was no space on the dance floor at any time! They provide great entertainment and are very professional. I would absolutely recommend them for your event!

They are so much fun! They learned a bunch of new songs for our ceremony, and it was beautiful. You can tell that they are really comfortable with weddings. Then, when the dancing began, they had everyone up on the floor and having a great time. Not too loud, just right. They even help out the wedding planner with emergency changes to the room setup. These guys are great!‚Äč
