The Ben Mallare Entertainment group was just excellent for all our wedding ceremony sound and reception entertainment needs! Ben’s group is very professional and responsive through the planning process. They provided us with exactly what we needed for the ceremony including speakers, a microphone stand, and microphones. During the reception, we specifically had the All-Stars group with Rebecca and Gabriel as our lead singers. Because we planned our wedding from the East Coast, we needed to make our wedding band decision based on the Ben’s provided video examples. We were already confident that this group would be awesome from the videos, but on the day of, they well exceeded our expectations. They played such a great selection of background music during the dinner, did a fantastic job MC-ing, and absolutely killed the dancing part of the evening! Many of our guests (and of all ages) came up to us during the reception saying this wedding band was one of the best they had seen/heard. Our guests were extremely impressed by the wide repertoire of songs and music styles they could play. Further, our guests were having so much fun dancing they boo-d the early shuttle back to the hotel which is just a testament to how this group knows how to get your wedding guests wanting to dance and celebrate all night.
