Top Rated Wedding Bands in Palm Springs

From November to March, where else if not California’s Coachella Valley? In this neck of the desert, we usually find ourselves performing in La Quinta, Rancho Mirage, Indian Wells, and Palm Springs. Although Palm Springs proper has a noise ordinance that sometimes adds an extra hurdle to planning live entertainment, we’ve brought our top live dance bands to some absolutely killer weddings in this cosmopolitan oasis. 

Beyond the many hotels and resorts that will host our live wedding band for your big day, there’s also a plethora of country and golf clubs that make the perfect backdrop as well. Ben Mallare Events & Entertainment performs many Opening and Closing parties for clubs in the area, and we most recently brought our largest 14-piece band to an exclusive opening party in La Quinta.

When I first set out to find a band for our wedding, I was extremely overwhelmed. There were so many choices, each band had a different vibe, the quotes ranged significantly, and I was worried that in the end, I would be disappointed with my choice. I visited a few of the main wedding planning websites and started looking at their reviews when I came across the Ben Mallare Band. I LOVED their promotional material. It was current, exciting, the vocals and band were impressive but most importantly…everyone looked like they were having a blast (both band and wedding guests)! I reached out to Ben Mallare and heard back within a couple hours (which wasn’t my experience with multiple other bands I reached out to who never got back to me). I could tell he was a pro and he immediately made me feel at ease. My gut said I wouldn’t be disappointed, and my gut couldn’t have been more on point. Ben and his team made the entire process absolutely painless. He catered to special requests, always responded to my emails and calls in a timely manner and was just extremely pleasant to work with overall. Not to mention, I had ZERO wedding planning experience and he helped guide me regarding the timeline, song choices for father/bride & mother/groom dances, things to stay away from, etc. Our wedding day was even more perfect than I ever could have imagined due to the Ben Mallare Band…from the 4-piece jazz ensemble during the cocktail hour to the 16-piece band for the reception. They played a great mix of current hits, dance/pop, some throw backs and of course…those classic wedding songs everyone pretends to hate but secretly loves! Everything from their wardrobe to energy to various vocal styles was perfect. To this day, our friends and families still tell us how impressed they were with the band and that it was the best part of the wedding. I can’t remember a single second when the floor was not packed with people dancing. In a nutshell, you can’t go wrong with this band. Look no further and scratch that part off your wedding to-do list. You will not be disappointed!
