From a wedding in Birmingham, Alabama

When you book a band on the internet, it’s a little scary. There is so much unknown. First of all, Don was so sweet to patiently answer our many questions. Then the wedding came. It was so. Much. Fun!! We knew we had made an excellent decision!! The Black Sedan Band was awesome to work with! They were so friendly! The music seemed to never stop. Their energy was contagious! I loved how they interacted with the audience! They even came out into the crowd. People danced from the very beginning and everyone seemed to have a wonderful time! It ended up being a great decision and for that, I am beyond thankful. Words cannot express my appreciation to the Black Sedan Band for making a special evening even that much more fun and memorable. 

I mean every word. Thank you so, so much! You were the icing on the cake to a fabulous evening!


From a wedding in Auburn, Alabama

"Wow, where do I begin? If you are in search of the perfect, fun, professional, TALENTED, band for your event-BOOK THEM. You won't regret it, in fact you will thank me. Your guests will thank you. You won't leave the dance floor the whole evening and you won't regret it. From start to finish they were a pleasure to communicate with, and I am self admittedly hard to get in touch with. We did ask them to learn Free/Into the Mystic by Zac Brown Band for our first dance and OH. MY. GOODNESS. Did they kill it!!!!!! To top it off, they were KIND and you knew performing brings them incredible JOY. Guys, you are such a gift! Hope to come see a show soon! Best Wishes!"

I cannot recommend the Black Sedan Band enough! We knew we wanted a band for entertainment for our afternoon wedding and after the first time seeing the Black Sedan Band perform we knew it had to be them! Leading up to the wedding, Don was great at communicating and helping us get everything ready to go for wedding day. The band absolutely made our wedding day! We spent the entire reception with ALL of our guests dancing and singing! The highlight of our day was when Hoss Carl sang “Shout” in the middle of the dance floor with all of our family and friends! Every single guest from age two to seventy-two was on the dance floor! I am still getting messages from our guests asking who the band was and where they can see them perform next! We love the Black Sedan Band!! 


From a wedding in Gadsden, Alabama

 My primary responsibility in planning our wedding, as the groom, was to find a band for our wedding reception. I went to the standard wedding websites and listened to those listed on each site. I listened to maybe 6 or 7 different band’s sample music. They were perfectly fine wedding bands, but I just wasn’t getting excited over them. I then got to the Black Sedan Band. I went to their website and started listening to what they had available. My then fiancé was in the living room with me, and she will likely forever make fun of my initial reaction. My jaw was on the floor. Carl’s voice really needs no introduction and jumps out at you from the jump. But as I listened, I noticed how incredibly talented every member of the band was. The cohesive way in which they all play is far beyond anything you’re ever going to hear from any other band that you can go see at a local bar or private party. Even with my expectations sky high walking in to our reception, they somehow easily exceeded those expectations in person. If you want people to actually get up and have fun at your wedding, you’d be crazy not to get these guys. In addition to being insanely talented musicians, they are total showmen that know how to give your guests no choice but to have a blast. I’m writing this 4 days after our wedding reception, and I’m still getting texts and calls about how incredible our wedding band was. This is on top of all the comments I heard at the reception itself. The icing on the cake is how easy they are to work with, Don took all of the stress out of organizing and planning as we approached our big day. The rest of the band is genuinely kind and humble as well. It was obvious that they all wanted to make sure our reception was memorable for both us and all of our guests. I assure you that you will have the same experience if you book this band for your wedding reception or private function. You too will be blown away.


From a wedding in Shelby County, Alabama

 The Black Sedan Band was absolutely the life of the party at our wedding. Their song list is full of great tunes and they even took the time to learn a couple of new songs for our special dances. The band manager also made it a point to stay in touch consistently through the planning process which I was very thankful for.  I cannot recommend the Black Sedan Band enough. They will make your wedding extremely fun and special.
