Hi Andrew,
All I have to say is WOW. I can not even begin to tell you how amazing Attraction was. They seriously made the ENTIRE NIGHT. I knew how amazing they were because I remember my friend had them for her wedding back in 2018, and at that point I KNEW that I had to have them. They absolutely KILLED IT. They seriously made it the best night of my entire life. Everyone was completely mind blown. Even with just 25 people it felt like a large, energetic wedding, like I have dreamed of, and it was because of them. I seriously cannot thank y’all enough. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I just can’t even begin to describe how incredible they were! 
Thank you so so much!

We used Sam Hill Entertainment to book Attraction Band for our daughters wedding. This was the easiest part of the planning. Andy Jaspen made it very clear about how to think about choosing a band but truth be told we had been at two weddings where Attraction Band played and we knew we wanted them. From start to finish Sam Hill Entertainment was great and Attraction Band was by far the highlight of the night (next to my daughter of course)!! There was not a moment that they were playing that the dance floor was not full. Skimp on the food or bar...do not skimp on the band! Fairytale wedding complete!

From the time of our first conversation, this has been the easiest part of the process. I cannot say enough about the band. I have copied below what I sent to Dave Barton and you can count on a top review on the Knot from us. I've already given your name out to a couple people who have asked.
Thanks again for all your help.

 Hi Dave,
Thanks so much for the email. I cannot tell you how happy we were with your performance. I also cannot tell you how many people have told me that was the best wedding they have ever attended and how great you guys were. I don't think there was a moment that you were playing that the dance floor wasn't full. I told Mallory early on in this process that if you give people a good meal, an open bar and a great band it will be the best wedding ever. I think I need to change up that order because today no one remembers what they ate but they will forever remember Attraction Band.  Thanks for helping making the day so special and helping give Mallory the fairytale wedding she has dreamed since she's been a little girl!!

We are en route to our honeymoon, but wanted to drop you a quick not to say thank you for a truly fabulous evening.

Also, thank you for incorporating Margaret not once but twice that certainly made the night even more special for us and we are so grateful for it. We are so appreciative of your patience, flexibility, and willingness to accommodate all of our requests from learning first dance songs to including last minute song asks in the playlist we listened to during your break.
We have you all to thank for making our wedding the most fun and memorable night of our lives you guys still hold your ranking as the #1 most fun band we’ve ever heard! You have been such a pleasure to work with and I so appreciate your responsiveness, flexibility and all of your hard work to make the night so perfectly seamless and FUN. We will always recommend Attraction to anyone getting married or having an event Mrs. Nassar even wants to get you to Memphis!!

The dance floor was packed the entire night. Song after song hit just perfectly and our guests were amazed. We are still hearing about how awesome the wedding band was. People were saying they have never seen a better band anywhere (and we agree)! We are so happy that we found you to to play the soundtrack to our best day ever. You seriously made our day, and we can't wait to see you guys play again in the future!!

We saw Attraction for the first time at a friend's wedding. We knew that they would be the band for ours. Dave Barton was so great to work with. We asked the band to play a Dave Grohl and Nora Jones version Maybe I'm Amazed that we changed the female lyrics to, and the band came through! It was the first dance and extremely special. They allowed me to play Everlong by the Foo Fighters to my bride too. My family and friends could not say enough good things! The set list was amazing, the floor was packed all night, the energy was so high and it was the best wedding ever. So much fun! If you need a band for a wedding, Attraction is the one to book!

Laura Caso:
Best wedding band hands down!
There are not enough positive things I can say about this band. I scoured the internet, Instagram, Facebook, The Knot, Wedding Wire, you name it...to find the ultimate band. I wanted a band that can sing it all they can. Not only can they sing it all they sing it all incredibly well. Our guests absolutely raved about them and my dad (a harsh critic) said it was the best decision I made for our wedding day aside from choosing my husband, of course!
Not only that, the majority of my friends and family traveled from big cities...Boston, New York, Los Angeles and more. ALL of them agreed...this was the best wedding band they'd ever heard and that says A LOT! Of course, especially when they are coming from major cities with all the bands in the world to choose from.
Attraction is incredible easy to work with. Dave...the band manager...is not only talented, but he knows exactly what brides need. I even met with them ahead of time to practice a song that I decided to sing for my husband on our wedding day. They worked with me, they gave the song everything they had and I appreciate it more than they know.
This band sings it all, they get the crowd up and dancing and they know how to keep the party going. Our only regret is that we couldn't dance to them all night long seriously. Also, besides dancing... my friends who are future brides, all walked away with their business card. They are incredible!

Hi Mike,
Thanks so much! Attraction band was incredible and we could not have asked for a better band. All of our guests raved about Attraction band during our wedding and the following day at brunch, and the band was very engaging and their interaction with the audience helped ensure a fun night. Although I will leave public reviews on wedding related websites later in August when we’re back from Australia, I wanted to let you know that Dave and the entire band was easy to work with throughout the entire process, and we will highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good band in the future.
Thanks for all of your help throughout the process as well, Mike! You were great to work with.

It was so easy to work with Dave on all the timing. Band sounded great and certainly did a bangup job on getting everyone on the dance floor! They get an A+ in my book!
Thank you,

Let me give a special shout out to Dave Barton and Attraction. He and the entire band were delightful and he just made my life easier in making sure we kept as close to the time line as possible, making sure that all the toasting was done at the proper time, the cake cut and the sparkler exit facilitated. I wish I could have this band at every wedding here at The Homestead!

To say that we LOVED the band Attraction is an understatement. They could not have been more amazing. Literally every person who came to our wedding was on the dance floor all night. And Sam Hill Entertainment is hands down THE BEST! From the moment we reached out to them about bands for our wedding, they immediately got back to us and answered all of our questions, and they stayed in touch throughout the whole planning process to make sure that we were happy. We had the best time and would highly recommend Sam Hill and Attraction!



5star review posted to The Knot
When planning our wedding we wanted it to not just be a typical affair but we instead wanted an allout dance party. A champagnesoaked, sweaty, raucous good time. Attraction delivered big time. With a very small wedding of 78, each and every one of Attraction's 9 band members interacted with our friends and family. They involved everyone, from my nephews singing on the microphone to having my sister play the tambourine, they kept our night very high energy. With such a small wedding it very easily could have gone the other way but they ensured that wasn't the case. The sister with the tambourine? She flew home with a tambourinerelated injury as she had so much fun she bruised her hand. The nephew with the microphone? He fell asleep that night in the hat the band gave him and has rarely taken it off since. And 8 months later, when I asked the band if they could record a video for said nephews birthday, they gladly agreed and made his day. He feels famous and I feel like the world's greatest aunt. Thank you, Attraction, for making our danceparty wedding wishes come true and for being all around great people.

Dave
Annie and I wanted to thank you and the other members of the Attraction Band for putting on such an exceptional performance at our wedding on September 29th. All three sets were fantastic, and each had such a different feel, it really helped keep the dance party going.
It was evident that you all were having a blast as well, and that really set the tone for the entire wedding. We were really impressed with the level of energy you guys had and how much effort went into keeping the crowd engaged. Mic Fields' dancing and crowd engagement also was awesome. I've attached our favorite video from the night. :)
Everything from the song selection, to attire, to the band's willingness to wear our lightup glasses, made everything so fun for us. The band's ability to keep the party going while maintaining their poise and professionalism was truly a differentiator from other groups we have seen at weddings, and we truly appreciate that.
We had several guests tell us that Attraction Band was the best group they've ever heard at a wedding.
We will share these comments with Andy J. at Sam Hill Entertainment as well, but please let us know if we can be a reference with prospective clients or provide a 5Star review on any other platforms.
Please pass our thanks on to the rest of the band!!!
Thank you again,

Attraction was AMAZING and everything and MORE we could've ever hoped for! They were a blast and we had the best reception and our guests loved them just as much. They had an awesome mix of genres and music and it was just perfect. We want to see them again! Thank you so much, we are so grateful to you all at Sam Hill.

We absolutely loved them as a band....thought they did an exceptional job engaging the crowd and were SO fun! They read the crowd beautifully played such fun songs, and everyone had a blast. While we didn't interact with them that much, the interactions we did have were great! We were also so impressed that they didn't even want to take a break the whole time!
Sam Hill Entertainment was also great the whole time. I felt like once we booked in advance, we didn't have too many interactions because everything was taken care of for us. We were incredibly grateful and feel like the music and band made the whole wedding! :)
Thanks so much!

ATTRACTION IS THE BEST WEDDING BAND, PERIOD!! Two of my bridesmaids had them at their weddings, so when my husband and I got engaged, this was an absolute no brainer once we picked the date, I reached out to Sam Hill Entertainment to see if Attraction was available. We had a large wedding around 240 people and so much going on (hookah bar outside by the fireplace, a Persian DJ to play during band breaks, a tasting room that was separate where many guests were hanging out by the fire). Attraction made sure that the people who were in the ballroom were on the dance floor they played the best music, had phenomenal energy, came out on the dance floor, etc. They even pulled me up on stage to have me help sing (ha) one of the songs I had previously requested. They also obliged a few of my requests to customize some songs, and did everything seamlessly. Do yourself a favor and hire Attraction you won't regret it!! Oh and get the two additional horns to make a full ten piece band!!

Last night was a huge success! Attraction was fantastic and it was such a pleasure meeting Dave Barton. He was especially helpful and attentive in making sure our CEO had time to take the stage to thank our guests. The band played very well – we didn’t have much of a dancing crowd last night but the band’s good energy was felt throughout the venue and they sounded great!

Thank you for helping me with the booking process – I will certainly keep Sam Hill Ent. in mind for future events :)

Many thanks,

Hi Andrew!
Thank you so much for the congratulations and things went absolutely perfect with Attraction!
They were sincerely wonderful and I cannot even begin to tell you how many people came up to me to express how much they enjoyed the band! My wedding planner was extremely complimentary about how easy it was to communicate with the band and how quickly they got back to her. She said that it was actually one of the best bands she has worked with and that she would definitely be recommending them to others. The energy that they provided through their music was astounding and I feel like that they were much of the reason guests stayed around until the end. Buzz and I had the best night and I do not think that we could have asked for anything better than our perfect night! As I told Dave, I hope that we have an excuse to hear, or most importantly use Attraction again. Thank you for everything!

Hi Andrew!
Attraction was AMAZING!!! They brought the party from the very first song and rocked it until we sadly had to shut things down. I have personally never seen a dance floor so packed and so full of happy, energetic dancers. The band killed it and Dave was a pleasure to work with. Not only did they learn our first dance song, but they worked secretly behind the scenes with my dad to learn one of his original songs that he wrote for me. It was a complete shock when my dad and I started our first dance. Those little details of going above and beyond we're definitely noticed.
The wedding and more specifically that band is now the talk of our town! Jason and I are just trying to figure out how we can afford to hire them again and do it all over again! ;) We will definitely be highly recommending the band and the management company to anyone who asks.
Thanks again!

Energetic, engaging, soulful, and extremely talented only begin to describe them! Thanks to Andy as well as Dave and the rest of the band for a wonderful reception.

Terry did all the day of coordinating but it sounds like everything went smoothly on that front too. Thanks again for all of your efforts here. We couldn't be happier with the band. Talk soon.

All went really well with Attraction, Andy, They did a great job and played through their second break which was very kind and generous of them since dinner took longer than we planned. Everyone in the band was super nice and accommodating.

It was said to be hands down the best Winter Bash they've ever had. From our first contact you were so easy and helpful to work with and you provided me complete peace of mind during the planning process. When we got onsite, you were so helpful and wonderful to work with. Attraction was such a huge hit that people were nonstop complimenting me on how great the performance was. The music was perfect, the group read the crowd so well, and it seemed like at every song you saw new people getting excited and joining the dance floor. You all are hands down one of the best bands I've ever experienced at an event. It was really a pleasure working with you and I will absolutely recommend your group to everyone I know!

Thank you so much for your note! We wanted to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for ALL that Dave and Attraction did to make our wedding reception special. Attraction was better than we ever anticipated and did such a phenomenal job to create an exciting dance atmosphere, much to the delight of us and our guests. Dave was willing to let Robby sing with the band as a special surprise for my parents, without hearing Robby sing before Saturday. Dave and our planner, Cody, were able to finagle in a sound check and runthrough during the cocktail hour in order to keep everything a surprise.
Going into this process, we knew that we wanted a live band, but had no idea about the HUGE impact that it would have on the reception atmosphere. We are forever grateful for their performance, graciousness, and contribution to our wedding reception and will wholeheartedly recommend them (as well as Sam Hill Entertainment) to any wedding couples.
When we come back from Hawaii, I will be sure to write a full review on The Knot, as we would be more than happy to do whatever we can in return for all that they did for us.

Dave and the Attraction Band,
We are sorry it has taken a little while for us to reach out to you. We were so busy after the wedding and left quickly for our honeymoon in Kauai.
We wanted to tell you how grateful we are for all that you and the band did to make our wedding reception so special. It was better than we ever could have imagined, not just for us, but for our friends and family as well. We have heard rave reviews from everyone about you guys, how talented everyone is, and how entertaining the band was for the entire night.
To be honest, we knew we wanted to have a live band, but we never considered the tremendous impact that it would have on the entire atmosphere. You all truly did a phenomenal job and we are so grateful.
(ROBBY) I especially appreciate you going out on a limb and letting me join you, though we had never practiced together before that day. I know this was a special moment for Meg's mom (as Meg keeps replaying the video over and over again), and I had a lot of fun with you all.
Please let us know if there's anywhere that we can post reviews for you all to help you in the future. Meg is planning to respond to Andy Jaspen's email with a glowing review, but if there's any other websites where we can share how great you all are, please let us know. It's the very least we can do after you all made the night so special for us.

Attraction has some incredibly talented vocalists. Holy smokes. We heard them rehearsing before our reception started (we were taking some photos there), and got SO excited, because even just warming up, they were spectacular. They blew us away! We had watched their promo video online and were very impressed, but that's nothing compared to how they were in person. They did a wonderful job of picking up on the vibe of the party and keeping it going. They brought so much energy, and really turned our reception into a dance party. They engaged the crowd it was almost like being a concert at our own wedding! They also did music at our cocktail hour which was more instrumental and extremely classy. They're performers, but everyone was so nice! We were bumping into them before the reception started and they were all so sweet. My advice: check out their video, and then book! It's evident how talented they are, but they will exceed expectations.

We were so blessed to have the Attraction band, one of Sam Hill’s fantastic bands, play at our wedding in St. Michaels, MD over Labor Day weekend. It was an absolute pleasure working with Sam Hill and Attraction, particularly the wonderful band manager Dave Barton they were beyond accommodating and made sure to check in every step of the way to ensure we were happy. On the big day, they completely blew it out of the water! Guests were dancing from the first song on and didn’t stop until last call they even had my husband’s 80+ yearold grandmother dancing on stage (as she later told us, the first time she’s danced in 15 years). So many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding band they have every heard and we could not agree more. Thank you Attraction! Side note, we also hired Attraction for our ceremony AV/sound and they did a phenomenal job.

Hi Andy,
We had the absolute best experience with the Attraction band and everyone at Sam Hill. Dave Barton was beyond accommodating and a true pleasure to work with every step of the way. So many of our guests commented that it was the best wedding band they've ever heard and we couldn't agree more they even had JP's 80+ year old grandma dancing on stage. We'll be sure to leave a glowing review on The Knot.

Dave,
We could not have been more pleased with our wedding reception all thanks to you and the Attraction band! From the planning process all the way to the last song, you guys listened to all of our requests and made it the best evening! I still have people asking me, Where did that band come from? and How did you find them? When planning our wedding, the music was really important to us as it has always been a significant part of our relationship since we first met. You guys nailed it and had literally every person on the dance floor all night long which is exactly what we hoped for. Thank you all so much for making our night perfect!
Sincerely,
Lauren and Drew Haverly


I'm not sure I've ever seen a better band. Attraction is my new favorite!

What a great crew you have with “Attraction” and working with Dave is so smooth. They are back at the end of August for the Hensley Wedding and can’t wait for their return. I have emailed Dave to let him know if there is anything we can do for the crew and band, just to let me know. I thought we worked well together and they truly ROCKED the house !!!!

Andrew,
Our experience with Attraction was fantastic. Dave was a great master of ceremonies for the reception, and the band was phenomenal. Kyle and I had high expectations for the band, but they truly blew us out of the water. I spoke to Dave leading up to the wedding and when we discussed the vibe I wanted, I told him I wanted to see everyone on the dance floor, with music that would appeal to more than just the younger crowd at the wedding. The band truly delivered. Almost everyone who attended our wedding was on the dance floor at some point, and I often looked around and saw friends and family on the dance floor together. Dave also told me that the band enjoys an interactive experience, and he coordinated with my best friend to have her join on stage to sing two songs. That was such a treat, especially when she sang Proud Mary with the band. They killed it. My mom (and family members) were very impressed with the band's performance of Louis Armstrong's What a Wonderful World and noted that the singer did a great job with the vocals. We received so many complements about the band from our guests, too.
I couldn't be happier with our choice in entertainment, and cannot wait to relive the night when we get the video back.
Thanks,
Siri

Hi Andy,
Thanks for your email. We had a phenomenal wedding and a lot of that was due to Attraction!
Simply put, the band was excellent. They absolutely know what they are doing. When they started playing, Evan and I hit the dance floor and were anticipating we might have to convince some guests to come up and dance with us. But there was immediately a crowd that formed on the dance floor, which did not disappear all night. My dad thought he'd want to spend a lot of the evening in the separate room that Pippin Hill has (which would be quieter), but he shocked me and everyone else by staying on the dance floor all night! Attraction was extremely interactive, coming off the stage and into the crowd on several occasions and inviting us up to sing onstage. We gave them a few do not play songs but otherwise told them that we wanted them to go with the flow on the night and play what they felt would suit the party well. I was so glad that we trusted them! Every single song was incredible.
Overall, we had a phenomenal experience with the band. We had very high expectations based on other people's reviews on Attraction and we felt the band absolutely lived up to the hype!
Thank you,
Lizzy and Evan

We loved Attraction! They were great and we couldn't be any happier! Dave was so easy to work with, a really nice guy who kept everything running on time and was flexible as well. The musicians and singers were all first rate. They respected our request for quieter music during the dinner hour, and even when everyone was up and dancing and they got LOTS of people going they didn't uncomfortably blow our ears out, as we've seen with other bands at other events. Many of our guests commented on just how great the band was as well. They really helped to make the wedding a great event, and we'll be happy to put our favorable comments on The Knot also.
Many thanks,

Dear Andy,
Our wedding reception featuring Attraction could not have been more perfect. Dave worked with me extensively before the wedding to refine our timeline so that as soon as the toasts were finished, our fabulous party began! I had a vision of a seamless reception without gaps and interruptions. With Dave's guidance, we found the perfect mix of dancing and personal moments. He worked with the bride and groom to select their first dance song and met their wishes completely by playing the kind of music they knew their friends would want to hear. I heard many comments from our guests that it was the best reception ever. We loved the way they dressedthey were a total class act. Most important, the music was incredible. They led us in some really fun numbers, getting down on the dance floor with the guests and bringing the bride and bridesmaids onstage. Watching a roomful of guys do the Gator was one of the funniest things I have ever witnessed.
We also used three members of the band to provide jazz music at our cocktail hour. Seeing the guys in their white dinner jackets as we arrived at the outdoor cocktail hour was just awesome. Dave Barton and Attraction set the tone for a wonderful party from start to finish.
I particularly loved working with Dave. He made me feel confident that he would keep things moving along and keep our guests engaged and dancing. Since it was our goal to have an awesome party, I could not have appreciated his attention to detail more. He even gave me a little shoutout, publicly complimenting me on a beautiful reception and telling all that he had enjoyed working with me. Now that's the way to win the motherofthebride's heart!
Thank you again for all your support. Andy, I remember speaking to you this time last year when I was weighing our options. When my other daughter was married in 2010, we had a fabulous experience with another band (also through Sam Hill) but we wanted to try something different for this event. You assured me that Attraction would not disappoint and you were so right. We truly were in the hands of the pros with Dave Barton and Attraction!

Kristie Smith

We really appreciate your guidance on the timeline, it worked out beautifully and we could not have asked for a better night!
I think my favorite part of the night, right behind my first dance with Austin and my dance with my dad, was at the very end when all the boys were on the floor gatoring. It was a sea of black tuxes. The pictures of this were phenomenal! It was exactly how Austin and I imagined our wedding reception to be, but better!

My favorite was when they played No Diggity and one of the female singers absolutely killed it! They got out in the audience, let our best man play the cow bell (which I think was the highlight of his night), asked for permission from myself or Sam before playing some of the requests they had (and I really appreciate that) and learned a few songs just for us it sounded like!
They were incredible and I will definitely be recommending them in the future. Thank you so much for your help with organizing everything and please pass on our gratitude to Attraction for an amazing night!!

The cooperation, patience, personal attention, flexibility, and assistance were greatly appreciated.
We had potential weather problems, and the Band fully cooperated and worked with us. We had to make a last minute decision as to outdoor, or on the Veranda, and they helped relieve our stress by assuring us they would do whatever necessary and make it work, and they did! They assisted us with their sound system to help us make our announcements and our wedding welcome and toasts so all could hear.
The music was amazing and Attraction had everyone up on the dance floor the entire evening! They can play just about everything, and they respected the wishes of the Bride and Groom as to what they did not want to hear, but otherwise were free to play what they played best, and what the crowd responded to.
They are not only great musicians, but they are also great performance artists! The band feeds off the energy of the people and no one wanted the music to stop and the night to end! A very positive experience and a professional service we highly recommend.

Thanks for the congratulations and well wishes. We had an amazing experience with Attraction; they were very easy to work with (Dave who we spoke with the most was very professional and approachable, as were the other members) and their performance was OUTSTANDING! It really was. I was a bit worried just because I knew they were booked on both Friday and Saturday night, and our wedding would be their third event in three days so I was a little concerned about them being tired. However, they were SO highenergy and everyone loved them. They actually didn't take a break all night (I think some members slipped out for quick rests during songs they weren't involved in, but the music never stopped, which was impressive). We got so many compliments on how great the band was they really were fantastic, both to work with and the quality of their performance. I will definitely pass along your information to any friends looking for a band! I honestly can't say enough good things about them; they really exceeded our expectations!
Thanks for helping us find the perfect band for our wedding day!

I can speak for Erin and I in saying that Attraction was better than our already high expectations! Dave Barton led the band through a highenergy set that had our guests consistently on the dance floor. Their musicianship is top notch, especially their three lead singers. Erin and I are both musicians (as were many of our guests), so the band really delivered for a discerning crowd. Our first dance, All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey, was covered perfectly and was a highlight of our evening.
Finally, our engagement with you and Sam Hill Entertainment has been flawless. Your website, content and variety of bands made it very easy to select the ideal group for our wedding, and Attraction was a fantastic choice!

Both Will and I couldn't not have been happier with the level of service and amazing entertainment that Attraction provided. The night was simply amazing.

My husband and I loved working with Attraction and more specifically Dave Barton. He was easy to work with and very accommodating to our requests for our wedding. The best part about Attraction was we literally danced the entire night as did all of our wedding guests. They had a great selection of music that wowed everyone from Motown to the current hits. The really know how to make your party unforgettable. I would highly recommend Attraction to anyone who needs a great band!

Hi Andy,
Attraction is just the best wedding band out there! They were a breeze to work with leading up to our big day, but I was floored by just how amazing they were during the reception. They had EVERYONE dancing the entire night because they played recent hits as well as some classic older songs. They looked sharp, played our requests, interacted with the crowd (they even let the bride play the cowbell!) and were the highlight of the night. They know how to put on a good party!

To our incredible wedding team,
Alan and I are overwhelmed beyond words at everything each of you did to make this past weekend the most special and amazing of our lives. You will each be receiving formal thankyou notes from us, but I wanted to let you know right away how incredible every single detail was. I honestly cried when I walked into our reception.
To Dave from Attraction and Andy at Sam Hill, y'all are true rockstars. No one could stop talking about the band, and how the flow of the party was the best they've ever been seen at a reception. Y'all kept Alan's parents there until midnight and they usually go to bed at 9pm. The limbo was so fun, and I've never heard a better wedding band performance. The ladies were beautiful. Loved the outfit changes. I heard from multiple people they want to book you NOW for their events. I could go on and on…
I just had to let you all know that this weekend exceeded all expectations and was definitely the best of our lives! I would love to see any pics any of you might have!
Thanks again and much love,
Mrs. Miranda Carney :)


We wanted our wedding to be a mega dance party and this band made it happen! Everyone danced all night and my grandmothers were breaking it down in the middle of the dance floor. One said she hadn't danced like that in ten years since my grandfather passed away!
From the beginning, the communication was exceptional. As our wedding neared, Dave Barton contacted me directly and we chatted for an hour about what I expected, requests for birthday announcements, had to play list and tons of other things. He can offer great advice for anyone nervous about first dances. Just an overall great professional and fun guy!
The entire band blew my guests away. I've had several guests tell me they had never heard/experienced anything like it. People want to hire them from all over. We brought them from VA to GA. They love to travel!!
I am a wedding photographer and have obviously been to many many weddings. Of course I am partial to my own but ATTRACTION was really such an amazing decision that we still rave about months later! My husband is such a music lover and this was a big decision! I have never heard a band this good at a wedding. The added horns section was the bomb!! All singers had amazing voices, dance moves and stage presence. Tasteful and charismatic!!
They know how to get a party started and when it's time to kick it up a notch. One of my favorite things is that besides a couple of must play songs and some information on what we definitely did not want to hear, Dave and the band had free reign of song choices! It really makes for a stress free wedding. No one is saying I didn't hear that song... or I missed this song.. They are so professional that they just keep the night going.
I could go on forever and ever about them but just seriously don't search anymore! They are killer!

Hi Mike,
Despite the horrible weather, the wedding reception was a huge success. Attraction was a big hit I loved them. Everyone danced nonstop and stayed to the end (which I was worried about since it was a Sunday night). Just some bullet points about Attraction:
* preevent they were easy to communicate with and had a can do attitude we knew from our early interaction that is was going to be a good night.
* when they were on stage it was clear that they wanted the guests to have a good time.
* they had the right amount of show that made it fun for the guests but not so much (like some bands) where the guests watched the band vs. dancing
* they also LOVED what they were doing and I think that is what made it so fun for everyone else.
* loved that they used a wireless mic and walked around in the crowd the guests loved it.
* excellent play list they read the guests and kept them moving.
* guests commented numerous times that they were the best dance band they had heard and wanted their name.

So I have married everyone off, but if I ever need to hire a band again (and I work on a lot of fundraisers) Attraction will be at the top of my list.

Thanks for all of your help the past 14 months.

They were so easy to communicate with and went above and beyond to tailor their performance to our wants and expectations. I had the opportunity to speak with a number of the band members during the reception, and they were all so kind just genuine, good people who wanted to make sure my husband and I were having the time of our lives that night. And we did! They really made the night for us, from working to make the music for all of the first dances just right, to strategically taking a break when the cigar bar temporarily stole the dance floor, to having everyone literally on the ground and still dancing. They did an amazing job, and I can't even begin to tell you how many compliments we've received about the best band ever! The night was all that I had hoped it would be, and I think so much of that is thanks to Attraction's energy and talent.

From the moment I heard the trumpet at the ceremony I knew it was going to be a great night! The trumpet was something my dad was so looking forward to and it was absolutely perfect! You guys provided the best energy and I am still thinking of all the fun we had on the dance floor. Friends and family are saying nothing but great things about you guys. You really got the crowd involved and I LOVE that we were able to get on stage. That moment will forever stand out in my mind when I think of our wedding day!!

Dave,
I just wanted you to know how much everyone at the wedding loved Attraction. You have a great band with superb musicians and singers. Susan and Mitchell thought you nailed the First Dance song (and so did I—we all thought Attraction sounded better than Norah Jones), and everything that followed was perfect—thanks very much for the effort you made to learn this song. I really wanted to have a great band at my daughter’s wedding, one which would engage the crowd and get the crowd on the dance floor, and I got my wish. It was a pleasure working with you and with Andy at Sam Hill Entertainment. I especially appreciate how easy you made everything for us and how you delivered on every promise. Thank you for a stellar performance that was much appreciated by me, my wife, my daughter, my soninlaw and all of our guests.
Best regards,
W. Foster Gaillard

To: Attraction

David,
First, I want to apologize for how long this has taken for us to get out. But, Ashley and I want to sincerely and emphatically thank you and your band for an amazing performance at our wedding back on May 19 at the Inn at Perry Cabin. We honestly could not have asked for more. The first dance rendition of Everything was exactly what we wanted. As for the rest of the evening, hopefully the enthusiasm of our guests was enough proof of how good you all were. But if not, we can't tell you how many people have told us how you all were the best band they've ever heard (and danced to) at a wedding. Just last weekend we had dinner with 8 of our guests and we had a long conversation about how much they enjoyed the music.
We cant thank you enough, but hopefully this gushing email, ripe with hyperbole, conveys just how sincerely we enjoyed having you and your band play at our wedding, and we hope that you enjoyed playing there as well. It was a spectacular and memorable evening for us, and thank you for helping it be so.
Best Regards,
Greg Goldman and
Ashley Balaban

Dear Dave,
I want to thank you for helping make my daughter's reception such an incredible night! You and your band did exactly what we wanted which was to keep the energy level up and the dance floor full all night. Your song selections which were all great dance songs appealed to all of our guests. There was no lull or decrease in energy the entire evening which was remarkable.
I also appreciate how responsive you were during the weeks leading up to the wedding. It was apparent to me that you wanted to make sure that all our requests were met.
Thank you also for being so organized and for staying on schedule. We were able to be totally relaxed and enjoy every minute of the reception because you handled everything perfectly!
When Andy at Sam Hill Entertainment said you were easy to work with he was absolutely correct. The band is such a critical part of every wedding and I am so glad we chose Attraction!
Thanks again for everything!

Hi Andy,
I really can't put into word how very pleased we were with Attraction! Just writing you an email is not enough. :) I knew they wouldn't be disappointed with us either, as soon as the sun set, the dance floor was completely full. What a talented group of musicians! I loved how they played relaxing jazz through dinner then..... transformed into a dance band that knocked everyones socks off. I was very impressed how the members engaged our guests. and to finish the night with Don't Stop Believing is a memory I will cherish forever. Please thank the entire band for me only regret of the night was that I didn't get a chance to thank them and shake their hand.

Kindest regards,
Linda


ATTRACTION
Review on The WeddingWire. May 12, 2012 wedding
MurphyStarr Wedding, Clifton Inn, Charlottesville, VA.

We had been to several weddings that fell short in the music and dancing category, and we knew from the very beginning of our wedding planning process that hiring a great band was our top priority. We hate when a great group of guests who are supposed to be happy and celebrating and letting loose just hang around the bar or their dinner tables, and an empty dance floor was not an option for our wedding. We wanted all of our guests, not just the young ones and not just the oldtimers, to have FUN, and we wanted the momentum of the celebration to last throughout our entire reception. Hiring ATTRACTION was the single BEST decision we made in planning our wedding!! This band delivered in every respect!!
The 9 piece band was highenergy from the very start of our reception! Their song list is incredibly extensive, and we had a great time combing through Attracion's long list to send them our musthave and donot play songs about 4 weeks before our wedding. We requested a few songs that were not on their list, and they obliged without hesitation. They even played very current songs that you may not expect a wedding band to have learned already, and Attraction's singers sound exactly like the artists who sing the original songs!
Dave Barton, the band's manager, was a real PLEASURE to deal with throughout the wedding planning process. His responses to our messages/requests were timely, he and the band were very flexible with last minute itinerary changes for the course of the evening, and we were very touched by his constant enthusiasm about our wedding.
When we say that Attraction made our wedding everything we wanted it to be, this is no exaggeration. Our moms, our dads, elderly guests, those guests who never dance at weddings and, of course, our younger set of 30something friends were dancing up a storm during our entire reception! We many guests doing the craziest dance moves and were stunned by what Attraction was able to draw out from our group!! Take a look at some of the photos on our profile the dance moves say it all. Everyone RAVED that ours was the best wedding band they had ever heard! Attraction is worth every penny and we could not recommend this band enough. They will make your celebration unforgettable!!

Dear Dave:

The raves about the Attraction Band still continue! You and your band are the 'talk of the town'. It is not often enough that two professionals in our business can hit it off so well and truly 'understand, get it and come to agreement' from the first conversation and throughout the entire process to its completion!!! Your band truly follow your lead in every way; professional yet warm and friendly, so talented and the ability to please the guests beyond measure. My clients, Robin and Bill Balaban were so delighted and really enjoyed the musical evening along with their guests.

I have no doubt that Attraction will be playing for future celebrations among the guests present. I especially look forward to working with you in the future as well. Biggest Thanks to all on behalf of the Robin and Bill Balaban and of course the bride and groom, Ashley and Greg Goldman.

The dance floor was packed the ENTIRE night. Everyone I have talked to has complimented the band. They really outdid themselves, I couldn't have been happier with their performance. And aside from the performance, they (as well as you), were great to work with. You guys really made the music the easiest part of the wedding :) If you have any more specific questions, please feel free to ask, but I have all positive and wonderful things to say about Attraction.

Hi Andy,
Thanks for checking in. We are just settling back into real life after coming off the high of the wedding week/end. It was definitely a blast and the music played a huge role in that.
Attraction was a huge hit among our family and friends, which I am sure isn't a surprise to you we can totally see why so many clients rave about them. They were true entertainers and did a really nice job of blending different music genres to appeal to guests of all ages. We had a full dance floor which was really our only goal for the reception, so a definite success.
We couldn't be happier and we so appreciate your guidance throughout the process in helping us assemble the music. We'll definitely pass along your name/Sam Hill referrals to anyone who inquires. Selecting the music was one of the easiest parts of the wedding planning process and for that we thank you!

Attraction was *INCREDIBLE*. They are such a fantastic, talented group.

They used the space incredibly, had the entire party dancing, even looked like they were having fun (not just performing) and were true troopers for making it to upstate New York despite the Hurricane. I feel so fortunate that they were able to make it. They really made the party. Thanks for all your help securing them, and please feel free to use me as a referral or quote me.

Hi Andrew!
In my (and my husband's) mind ... the band could not have been better! We had so many positive comments on the band and felt so good about having them there for Beth's wedding. All the band members are so talented and they really put on an energized, professional, and fun show that gets everyone up and dancing. We have been to 9 weddings this year from Philly to DC to Virginia. I felt we had the best entertainment of all the weddings we attended. The interesting thing is that the wedding crowd was what I consider to be mature. This was not a wedding for right out of college age. The band went with the music that seemed to work to get everyone up and dancing, which is truly a skill on their part. Props to Dave Barton! He is fabulous and truly leads the band.
I would book them again in a heartbeat!

Hi Andy,
Dave Barton and the band Attraction did a wonderful job last weekend at White Oak Plantation. They kept the dance floor full for the entire 3 hours of non stop music. With only 68 guests, this says a lot about the performance. The decision to have the non stop music was the best decision it kept everyone there to very end. I know that it wears the musicians out to stay on stage without a break but it needed to be this way for this party.
No question in my mind that Attraction will be on my suggested band list for future clients. They were easy to work with and did everything we asked and more!

Andy,
It is safe for me to say that Attraction was the highlight of the entire wedding! They got everyone on the dance floor and kept them there. I am beyond pleased with their performance and I have already been passing out their information to many friends who are now interested in booking them for their upcoming weddings. The music selection was great. I loved the more recent songs like Black Eyed Peas and Usher. I know my mom loved the motown and older songs. Overall, the mix was perfect and made sure that everyone had a great time. Dave was super nice and everything went so smoothly. I will recommend Attraction to all my friends! Thank you so much for helping to make my wedding day something special.
Kind Regards,
Rebecca


We hired Attraction to play at our June 2010 wedding in Washington, DC and they were phenomenal. We picked them just based on a recommendation from Andy at Sam Hill Entertainment we said we wanted great dance music that would appeal to both our parent's friends and our friends a mix of oldies, motown, and modern. And Attraction came through in every way!
Quality of Service: Excellent! They played oldies/motown in the beginning and everyone was dancing. Then they got a bit more modern and EVERYONE was dancing our friends and family loved them. They nailed the hora too! By the end of the night, our guests literally were shouting one more song. They came out and did Billie Jean and it was such a hit. We took a chance picking a band we'd never seen before
and I couldn't be more relieved and thrilled with how they played.
Responsiveness: Dave Barton is great to work with. We spoke with him on the phone and told him the style we liked, told him songs we didn't want to play, went over first dance, fatherdaughter dance, etc. and he was so agreeable. I emailed him a week before the wedding requesting a song that wasn't on their list, asking about volume, etc and he wrote back: We will get ALL this done for you volume, song list, Alicia Keys He put my mind at ease and he delivered!
Such high quality I would dance to them all night! I would recommend them to anyone.
Thank you for everything,
Elise and Dave

Dave and Andy,
Hope you are well. What a great email to get as soon as I get back! You guys were AWESOME! We could not have asked for a better band for our wedding night! With the exception of the humidity (sorry about that, I ordered a nice breeze, but it failed to show), everything could not have been better. Truly hope you guys had a good time, and didn't get back to Richmond too, too late.
You guys nailed it all, from the first dances (fantastic intro into Shout!!!), to the amount you played, and the energy you brought. As I mentioned before, music is and always will be the most important part of a party to me...and you guys NAILED IT! Couldn't have been a better time!
I've already passed your name on to 2 folks (up here in DC where Abbi and I live), so here's hoping to it turning into something. I am also going to pass along your praises to Andy, as he was instrumental in hooking me up with you guys.
Thanks a million again, and please let me know if you guys are ever playing a public gig, either in DC or on the Shore...ABBI AND I ARE THERE!
Best wishes to many more successful shows for you!

The BS&M band was terrific. Everyone raved about them. They were very personable, easygoing, and responsive to our guests. Mike did a great duet number with our daughter Erin, made her feel special in a fun, not sappy, way. We actually had no major requests but felt that BS&M would have been ready to handle anything. Dave Barton was very sensitive to the theme of the party and the music was so appropriate.
It was a great mix we had a wide range of ages to appeal to and they had it right. We all had a LOT of fun.
Again, everything went really well and we would not hesitate to recommend BS&M or you and your services to anyone. And, when the next party takes place, we know who to call.
Happy New Year and thanks again,
Linda

Thanks for touching base with us about the band and the music. Overall, the band was wonderful! Everything from their outfits to the props to the song selection was professional and great! We had a wide range of guests at the reception and all of our guests enjoyed the music. A number of guests were asking for the band's information at some point during the night. We even had a different first dance with the band playing a few minutes of Al Green and then a few minutes of Usher's Yeah. The band handled it like pros and all the guests loved it!
Dave seemed to genuinely care about our needs for the evening.
Thanks for coordinating everything. We'll be sure to pass Sam Hill Bands along to anyone who may ask.

Hi Andrew,
Thanks for checking in and for the congratulations. The wedding was amazing and BS&M was incredible. They exceeded our expectations, were wonderful to work with and truly made our reception. We got so many compliments! Dave Barton called a few days before the wedding just to check in and let us know that they were ready and looking forward to performing for us, which really was nice piece of mind for Gary and me. They also learned our wedding song and did a fabulous job with it we were so impressed! All night they kept the energy going, jumped off stage to join in on the dance floor, and even came back on stage for an encore! Dave sent me a nice email the next day and we are planning to write in to their website and give them a great review, in addition to sending some pictures.
We are SO glad we decided to go with a band and can't thank you and your team enough for setting us up only a few short months in advance of our wedding date. You did a great job of recommending a band that played the type of music we were looking for I had some family come up and say they were so glad they played classics that they could sing along to in addition to new stuff our friends were excited to hear.
I will certainly not hesitate to recommend Sam Hill or BS&M to any of my friends and I have lots that are engaged!
Thank you again!!!!

Okay, what can we say? You all were FABULOUS! You had us all in the palm of your hands for the entire evening, beginning with Lindsay and Tim's first dance, until the end of the reception. From the gorgeous dinner music to the music that had everyone on the dancefloor, you were consummate professionals. The vocalists were superb, and you read and orchestrated the mood and energy of the crowd from beginning to end. As everyone knows, music is probably one of the biggest influences on the success of an event, and we are fortunate that you were in charge of ours!

The wedding was absolutely perfect. I can honestly say looking back that I don't think there was one snag. BS&M was fantastic and we have heard nothing but wonderful comments & compliments from all of our guests. It was a large wedding with some family travelling from all over the country. For probably the first two weeks after the wedding, guests were calling both my parents and Ed's constantly to tell us how much fun they had. It flew by so fast that I don't even remember most of it. So many people have asked me where I found BS&M. I referred them to your site. The main thing that I conveyed to Dave Barton was that I wanted it to feel like a party and I wanted all of the guests to dance all night, not just to one song. They did exactly as I asked. Everyone was so involved that they didn't want the night to end. Other than the break for dinner, I don't think I left the dance floor the entire time I was there. I couldn't have asked for a better group to perform at the reception. I also spoke to most of the members of the group and really enjoyed talking with them.
Thanks again to you, Justine & BS&M for all that you did to make my wedding day perfect.
Thanks again!!

Dave,
I have been meaning to write you since the day after KT and Andrew's wedding, especially since I was honored by a shout out designation by your band... a first for this 60plus year old!:) It is hard to describe how significant the effect your talented
musicians and vocalists had on the entire spirit of our daughter's wedding reception! All of our guests raved about the music and the amazing quality of each and every performance. You clearly know how to read a crowd... I saw some of our friends, who usually sit on the sidelines, dancing every dance, singing along, and generally having the time of their lives. It says it all when KT told me at some point, Ma, I'm going to forget the garter and bouquet toss and cake cutting... no way I'm going to interrupt this party! That says it all. What a blessing to have our daughter's marriage begin with such joy and jubilance... the memories of that evening will be with our
family forever!
Having heard you at other local events, I think I'll become your newest groupie... if I knew your schedule, I might even become a wedding crasher! Thank you again and again for everything.

Andy,
We are just writing to tell you how unbelievably happy we were with the decision to hire BS&M for our wedding. You were right; they couldn't have been easier or more professional to work with every step of the way. Dave was very accommodating to our unique needs/requests for our reception. It's one thing to have as large of a song list as they do, but to be able to play every song as well as they do is testament to their immense talent and the diversity of music that only a large band can give you. As soon as they started playing to the moment they stopped, the dance floor was energized and packed, which is no small task with my usually reserved family. And when four hours of music just wasn't quite enough for us, they didn't hesitate for a second to keep on playing when asked by Mary. I believe that they finished up around midnight, which is so far and beyond the call of duty. Everyone loved them and many took their card home for future parties.
Sam Hill was incredible to work with, BS&M was incredible to dance to and our wedding day was that much more memorable because of you guys. In the interest of trying not to give you all too large of a head, we'll leave it at that.
Sincerely though, we can't thank you enough.

I truly cannot say enough about BS&M. They were the most amazing band and people are still talking about the wedding 2 weeks out. Everyone loved them and it continues to amaze me how many different songs and types of songs they can play! They had us dancing all night! Dave Barton the band manager was the most hands on, responsive, funny and nice person to work with. He completely put me at ease and I just knew walking into the night it would be great but he and the Band WAY exceeded my expectations. Truly. I have always said, after attending many weddings over the years, that the sign of a good wedding (reception) and of good entertainment is if dance floor is packed all night. My reception, it was packed all night and people had a blast. Everyone was sad when the music stopped!
I will have to send you some of the pictures when we get them back of the band and everyone on the dance floor with a few of the singers. It was so great.
Thanks again for all your help over the past year and for recommending a fabulous band. I would be happy to be a recommendation for Sam Hill and BS&M if ever you need me to be.

I can’t tell you how many compliments we received on the band. You all were able to perform a song from every decade and genre and that kept the dance floor hopping.

I had never heard BS&M before. I was just going on the recommendations of others, so I was a little apprehensive about them. I have to tell you that they were awesome! They were way better than I had even hoped. So many people at the reception told us that BS&M was the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. Everyone danced. People didn't want to leave when the reception was over! I was very worried that I didn't get our first song to Dave in time. I just mailed a CD to him about a week before the reception with no sheet music, no lyrics, no nothing. I figured they wouldn't have time even to learn it, but when they started playing it, it was amazing. They nailed it perfectly. I could not have asked for better music. Everything was just right. I would highly recommend BS&M to anyone having a reception, or party, or any other function requiring music. They were great!

Dear Dave,
What a wonderful job the band did the evening of our wedding. After speaking with you on the telephone I felt confident that BS&M would deliver a quality sound that would have everyone dancing and a great time. We spoke about the first dance and what song to play, then I told you the band was responsible for creating an atmosphere that all would enjoy. You said it was not often you were given free reign to let the band work and I am glad you delivered. You really did it! People were asking about who you were and what a fun time it was. Thank you are the two words that come to mind. You enabled Suzanne and me to not worry about details of the music and to enjoy oursleves as well. I will always recommend you for future parties. I look forward to seeing the band again in the near future.

Hi Hank,
I'm planning to send you a letter probably later this week because I thought the performance was worthy of a more detailed response, and I 'd like to give you something for your files. But the short answer is that BS&M was phenomenal, and the music really helped to make it a wonderful event. I'd be glad to talk to any future brides or grooms about it. Thanks for all your help,

Dear Dave & gang,
Gosh...I feel like a big jerk for not writing sooner. Believe it or not, our wedding festivities just wrapped up this past weekend with another party up in NJ so I am just now starting to breathe again!
I wanted to thank you for the AMAZING performance at our wedding reception on Saturday, September 21st. You guys were incredible and we truly had the time of our lives. As I predicted it would, the night ended way too quickly! However, I must say that I am still impressed with the amount of partying that took place in such a short amount of time. In fact, I was having so much fun I couldn't even tear myself away to go to the bathroom.
The Indian music helped kick the dancing frenzy off, but you guys did a great job of keeping the momentum going. We received so many compliments from our friends and, as promised, I will recommend BS&M any chance I get. Unfortunately, we live in SF now, so it might be a little difficult to get out here but, if anyone back home needs a band, you will be my sole recommendation.
I could go on and on but, I think I've rambled long enough. We just wanted you to know that we greatly appreciate everything you did to make our wedding reception so memorable. Your professionalism & kindness was evident to everyone and we all thank you for a job well done!! Please let me know if I can be a reference for any future brides. I can be reached at this email address forever or, at the following phone numbers: 6503401674 (home) or 6507409486 (cell).
Let us know if you make it out to the Bay area anytime in the near future!
Warm regards,
Amy (Charleston) Mishra

Hey Hank! Sorry for the delayed response. The band was AWESOME!! It was a crazy time everyone danced. I think even the guys in the band had fun! I just saw some pictures from the reception and it looks like a frat party. We had a blast and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding band. So glad we took your advice!! Thanks again for everything.
Regards,
Amy
P.S. I will send you an online album so you can see some of the photos for
yourself. You'll want to breeze through the ceremony shots to get to the
reception pictures!

Hello, Andy!
Greetings from the Vancouver Airport Mike and I are on our way home from the honeymoon (an Alaskan cruise), which was WONDERFUL. Very sad that it's back to reality ...
BS&M was amazing I'm so glad that we chose them, and I really appreciate all of your help with it. I got many compliments on the band from guests at the wedding and thoroughly enjoyed them myself. We even got Mike out on the dance floor!
Take care, and thanks again for everything,
Pamela

Thanks, Che.
Everything was fantastic, and many of our guests were telling us how much they enjoyed BS&M. The best part was that some people we never see dance were breaking it down! The dancing got going a little later than we had anticipated since dinner ran long, so we were very appreciative that they stayed longer b/c the crowd was really into it!! I also had so much fun getting up to sing with the band that was great! I would definitley recommend Sam Hill and BS&M to my friends... they were very fun and very accomodating I really appreciate you and David's help to make our reception so memorable.
Thanks,
Marya

Andy,
BS&M were amazing. The music was greateveryone was dancing all night. In fact, we extended them by one hour because no one wanted it to end. Dave was great to work with and they even a few songs for us. They are great musicians and really seemed to put their hearts and sould into the music. They were very accomodating when we had to mix up the schedule of events (i.e. the best man was gettting nervous and had to give his speech asap). I give them the highest recommendation and would use them again down the road for any big event. You and Katie were great as well, and very easy to work with .
Take care, Jessica

Hi Justin,
Thank you for following up! BS&M did an amazing job at Amy & Dave's wedding (the caterer even told me it's been a while since she's been imprssed with a band at a reception and wanted to know who they were). David Barton was very good to work with; we had a problem with the amount of power supplied to the tent and he and the sound engineer worked right through it, and everytime something needed to be announced or done to make sure our timeline was adhered to, David was right there making sure it happened.
Overall, I was very very happy with the band's performance and so were the bride & groom! I am definitely looking forward to booking future bands through Sam Hill Entertainment!
Happiness always,
