Top Rated Wedding Bands in Catalina Island

Just a quick ferry ride from Long Beach or Dana Point, Avalon comes as a charming surprise to those who have never made the trip. It takes some extra legwork and a good amount of preparation, but Ben Mallare can bring the party anywhere; even to this small island off the California coast. Working with a local audio/visual supplier that is able to transport the necessary sound equipment, the band will bring only the essentials on the ferry. Catalina Island is unique in that there are no private vehicles, so guests and vendors alike get around on foot or via taxi. 

Ben Mallare will start the evening with beautiful acoustic music to compliment your once-in-a-lifetime wedding ceremony, before beginning to build the energy with an island-vibe cocktail hour. Emcee services are complete with your reception package, which consists of the custom-sized band of your choosing. Our party band’s repertoire is far-reaching, with pop hits from the 70s, 80s, and 90s, not to mention all the latest top 40 hits that will keep your guests dancing until the very last moment.

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.
