“Music is a consistent and loved part of our lives – we enjoy all kinds of music, from new pop and R&B to classic rock and blues. We knew that we needed a band that could handle a range of songs and genres during our big day. When we saw the Matt Winter Band perform at a local venue – we knew we had found or wedding entertainment! Matt Winter is incredibly talented, and a genuinely kind person. His wife Sarah, who coordinates the band bookings, is as sweet as she can be and incredibly easy to work with. Matt played beautiful acoustic guitar through our ceremony, as well as acoustic versions of popular songs for our guests during cocktail hour. Matt was also our wedding emcee – he was very entertaining and kept everything flowing nicely.
My husband and I were slightly concerned that our guests may not dance with a live band – but any trace of concern instantly vanished when the band began performing for the reception. The electric guitarist, bassist, drummer, and sax player each brought their own unique element to the band. Matt’s voice is on point, and never waivers. They kicked it into high gear, and kept our guests dancing late into the night. As their grand finale (at our request), they performed Jimmy Hendrix’s Voodoo Chile, and absolutely stunned the crowd. My husband still talks about how cool it was when the electric guitarist (highly recommended!) broke his guitar string during his solo. To this day, our guests are still raving about “The Band”. The Matt Winter Band will always bring us fond memories of our wedding day. We are so grateful to have found a group of musicians that fit our vision of the perfect day, and even exceeded our expectations. Thank you Matt, Sarah and the Matt Winter Band for everything!”
