Believe the hype, this is the best wedding band, ever. For our wedding we chose a 7 person band with Chance as our MC. These musicians are unbelievably talented and their stage presence is beyond fun to witness. By the time the dinner service concluded, there was not a single guest in their seat the remainder of the night. Their music catalog and choices were perfect. The band performed all of our requested songs to perfection as well and even allowed some surprise performances by the Groom and the Groom’s parents throughout the evening. This is a wedding band that can enhance any wedding event into the greatest live music party ever. We hope to run into members of this band when we are guests at other weddings, this is a vendor for your wedding you do not want to pass up on.

Where to even begin! From start to finish Ben has been absolutely amazing and better than we could have ever imagined! When we got engaged one of the first things we knew we wanted for our wedding was a fun band that brings the energy and gets everyone dancing and having a great time. When we were researching bands and saw Ben’s video we knew instantly they were the band for us. Ben was extremely quick in all of his correspondence and was so nice in making sure he was customizing everything to make it the experience we wanted. Knowing they were the band for us, they were our first booking and we were so beyond excited that they were available for our special day! For our cocktail hour we had beautiful acoustic music and then for the reception we had Ben Mallare Signature Plus Horns. Not only are they an amazing band but Ben was an awesome emcee. One of my favorite moments from the day and what stands out everytime I think of our wedding was his announcements of the wedding party getting introduced and then him introducing us! Ben then sang our first dance song perfectly and learned a new song for the Father Daughter dance that was beyond amazing and meant so much to me and my Dad. It made our day so special! It may sound over the top, but I am 100% serious when I say the Ben and Band truly made our wedding. I had a smile on my face the whole time because they made it such a fun time, were amazing performers, and truly cared about making our day so special. Ben knows how to read the crowd and there was never a dull moment with our guest on the dance floor- it was always packed! Every guest I talked to at our reception was raving about how great they were and that they were the best they have ever seen- and I could not agree more! They made our reception everything we could have asked for and I would say the best decision we made for our wedding was having Ben and Band! I wish I could do it all over again just to relive the night- I can easily say I have never had more fun or danced more! Ben, thank you so much for making our wedding the best day we could have ever imagined!!! I will never forget closing out the night dancing to Shout!

I booked the All-Stars band for my summer wedding in San Diego. I had the pleasure of working with Ben Mallare during my wedding planning, that he ended up being my fave vendor to collaborate with. From the initial contact of requesting for a quote, he was very professional and he always responded to my emails right away. After seeing several video samples of his band and the sample sets listed on his website, I knew I had made the RIGHT DECISION! Ben is very tech-savvy and organized, and about a couple months before your BIG day, he'll send you a Google Word doc to input all your music preferences from the grand entrance, first dance, garter toss, bouquet toss, cake cutting, to "MC Notes" and the "Timetable" for the schedule of events. I wanted something classy, but energetic at the same time. And the Ben Mallare All-Stars Band did just that! I had the "Standard" package, which consisted of 4 people: the lead singer, guitarist, drummer, and bass player. But honestly, it sounded like a 10-piece band! That's how incredible they were! Andy was the lead singer and did such an AMAZING job!!! He was very versatile, as I had instructed for the Standards to be played (Dean Martin, Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra) for the cocktail half-hour and luncheon part of the reception. During open dance, he easily transformed my reception into a dance party, where my dance floor seemed to always be packed, playing the top 40 (Maroon 5, Ed Sheeran, Pharrell) along with some 80's! They do cater to their clients' preferences. They even learned 6 songs for us based on our input. The transition from one song to another was seamless. And I loved how they incorporated my name (the Bride) into the song, "Brown Eyed Girl," as that was an awesome surprise! Practically every guest came up to us saying how GREAT the band was and asked where did I find them. We would definitely hire them again in a heartbeat! It was THE BEST DECISION we made.
