Run, do not walk, to book Ben Mallare and the Complete All-Stars featuring Chance. We had the absolute joy of working with Ben Mallare and his team for our wedding in August, and it was the best decision we made. Having a fantastic wedding band was a top priority for us--we love live music and can be pretty picky, and we wanted the dance floor to be packed. We were absolutely blown away, and so were our guests. They are the best wedding band we have ever heard, and many of our guests came up to us during and after the wedding to say as much! We were so impressed with not only their musical talent—vocal and instrumental—but also the energy and presence they brought to their performance. We so appreciate how professional everyone was, and how seamless it was to work with Ben and Andy in the planning process—they were both so responsive and helpful. Our only regret is that it all flew by so fast—we could have stayed on that dance floor until daylight the next day. They are SUCH a talented group.

They were perfect, literally perfect. Through all our questions, requests, demands, inquiries, concerns, rescheduling, on and on and on, they were nothing but gracious, professional, prompt and courteous. Then they showed up and rocked the hell out of absolutely everyone. My wife and I, and every single one of our guests, give them the highest praise possible. And the cherry on top, they let me get on stage and jam with them. We had Ben and his band, which we clearly highly recommend dishing out the extra money for and locking in. Perfect.

The number one priority my bride and I wanted for our wedding was for a night full of dancing--not people begrudgingly on their feet, but truly having the best time on the dance floor. Ben Mallare absolutely delivered that for us. Since getting back from our honeymoon, the first thing people say to us is "that band you had was the best wedding band we've ever seen". If you are reading this review, don't waste another minute--book Ben Mallare--you'll be so glad you did. PS--they even learned a house/electronic song for us by request--they can truly do it all

The entire wedding, we were (and still are) so proud to share the Ben Mallare name and are thrilled we could share our day with them. We could go on and on about how much fun the dance floor was, how engaging the band was with guests, how great the music was, etc., but you should take all of that as an absolute given. Ben Mallare’s band brings together truly talented, hard working and fun musicians. We knew music was going to be a very important part of our wedding weekend and we wanted the absolute best of the best, and we have only the highest recommendation for everything Ben Mallare.
