Wedding Bands” you may think are pretty typical. They all include instruments, some vocals, perhaps some mc-ing and a few cliché Journey cover songs. Atlanta Wedding Band is not that kind of Wedding Band. They are a band of brothers who encompass so much enthusiasm and talent- they are in a category all of their own. Let me tell you why these guys will forever be some of the greatest, most professional and talented musicians and friends we have had the privilege of knowing. Our wedding story is a little more complicated than most, albeit, with the help of AWB, it is does have a fairytale ending. Let me explain… Brett and I first met John, Travis and Nate when they were playing a gig in the Virginia Highlands in June of 2016. I was immediately impressed with the range of different genres they played and how engaged they were with the crowd. Needless to say, we booked the trio for our big day in February 2017 that next week. We were pretty stoked about it!
In December of 2016, we were in Naples, Florida celebrating our upcoming nuptials with our closest friends and family, when the biggest tragedy of our lives smacked us “head on”, literally. Brett broke his neck while swimming in the Gulf of Mexico. Our entire world turned upside down in a matter of seconds. In the days to follow while Brett was fighting for his life in the ICU, friends and family helped us cancel all of our vendors. When John, found out he personally sent me a text with his condolences and warm thoughts and prayers from the band. The months following Brett’s accidents he continued to check in to see how he was coming along. John even offered to bring his guitar and play some of Brett’s favorites at his Welcome Home Party in April 2017!
As the months went by and Brett got stronger, we decided on date for our “new” Big Day in September 2017. Needless to say, John, Nate and Travis were one of the first phone calls I made and they were just as ecstatic for the re-booking as we were to have them. On September 9th, 2017 these guys played their hearts out for us. Our venue did not allow amplified music, so the guys went old school and rocked out acoustically. John and the band did such and tremendous job reading the crowd. They also managed squeeze in all of the nostalgic 90’s rock we could ever dream of (and put up with my terrible dance moves). All of my guests are still talking about how fantastic the music was that day. They helped make our long-awaited Wedding Day come true in an epic and unforgettable way. Atlanta Wedding Band is so much more than a “Wedding Band”. They are real guys who actually care about the couples they work with and have an undeniable talent and a knack for entertaining. I can guarantee, with 100% certainty, that Atlanta Wedding Band will make your Wedding Day the best day of your life. Thanks guys for going on this journey with us, we love you!
