We've had the pleasure of being on a dance floor with Ben Mallare performing twice now - once with a small band at a friend’s wedding and once at our own wedding with 7 members including horns and a female vocalist. We thought Ben handled the wedding of our good friends so well we didn't even have to think about it for our own wedding -- the choice was obvious.

We had Ben's band learn our first dance song, "Safe and Sound" by Capital Cities and it was amazing. We even had them learn and play a shortened 2 minute version to match our dance routine - they were happy to take an mp3 and work off of that. They played it first for just us and again near the end per our request so we could run through our first dance together and again with all of our friends on the dance floor.

At our wedding we had to be careful as the mother of the bride had a hearing sensitivity and we communicated that to Ben during our very first phone call and he was immediately receptive. The band played quietly during dinner and checked on us and her parents throughout the meal. Everything went better than we could have ever expected and the stress of balancing an atmospheric party and the comfort of our guests evaporated.

To summarize - dinner music was soft and quiet, conversation was easy and the atmosphere was wonderful. The first dance -- to a song they didn't know when we booked them -- went perfectly. We were able to hit every beat and the entire band nailed it. The dance floor afterwards was full and fun and everyone had a great time. We got so many compliments on the music throughout the night. One of the best decisions we made for our wedding.

Best decision we ever made was hiring Ben Mallare. My Wife and I were married last month and having a band at our wedding was top on our to do list, finding the right back was the task. I found Ben online and I was very interested. After meeting with him, I knew this is the band we wanted. We knew he would provide us exactly what we were looking for. He and his band are very professional and absolutely amazing. Besides my wife, they were the hit of the wedding. Ben and group brought SO much energy and knew the right songs to sing at the right times. Our dance floor was NEVER empty and everyone had the best time. He fed off the crowd and knew exactly how to make it a memorial event. Ben was also our MC and he couldn't have done a better job. I recommend Ben and group with full confidence you will not be disappointed, trust me, this will take your event to the next level. I cant tell you enough how happy we are we hired Ben Mallare. Stop searching and hire him now! Ben, thank you for making our wedding, the best night of our lives. -Bryan

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME! I saw The Ben Mallare Band perform as a 3-piece band at a private party and they nailed it. I knew they would be perfect for an event I was coordinating with over 550 guests. Ben brought a 7-piece band and again, they were incredible! They provided background music during dinner and then cranked it up and kept the dance floor full of people with their lively performance, expansive play list, and perfect mix of music genres. The Ben Mallare Band was very professional, the perfect touch for the evening, and they received unanimous rave reviews from the guests. Without a doubt, book them now!

The band's music during the ceremony added so much emotion to that special moment when I saw my husband as I walked down the aisle. Ben Mallare was key to making our wedding ceremony and reception one of a kind.
