ABOUT THE BAND

The Real Geniuses

The Real Geniuses were formed in August 2000 when 5 musician friends were asked to ‘come up with something fun’ to play at a friend’s birthday party. The Real Geniuses then thought it’d be fun to play a bunch of those old hit songs that everybody knows the words to but nobody ever really hears anymore. Their performance that night was a huge success. What the guys thought would be a one-night performance was quickly changed when several people approached them to play at events they were planning . . .

Not only were they amazing people, my husband said that Elena was really easy to work with. I met her for the first time that night and she was so sweet and nice. I could tell that she genuinely loves what she does. We also like how they kept the music going all night. We had family members throughout the whole night coming up and saying how much they loved the band.
Thank you so much. They did an awesome job learning our song, it was such a memorable and special day and I’m so glad that they were able to be a part of it.

We really want to send you a quick note to let you know how much we thoroughly enjoyed having The Real Geniuses as our band. They were so low maintenance leading up to the day, and they were absolutely fantastic the day off the wedding! We spent so long deciding on a band, and we are so so glad that we picked them. Many people came up the us at the wedding and the next day to also share with us how much they thoroughly enjoyed the band.
They also did a perfect job with the song they learned for our first dance, and it was one of my favorite moments of the entire wedding.
And trust me, I'll definitely be recommending them to people!
Thank you again!!

Honestly we had the best time...we have had a ton of feedback about the event and everyone agrees...the band was amazing they sounded great, were so fun and easy to work with...we've never had that many people on the dance floor and for that long before! We will definitely pass along their information to others and if we need a band again in the future we will definitely keep your info on file to contact! I would also just like to say that you were a pleasure to deal with in the planning/ negotiating stages...I know it was a bit difficult negotiating the contract w/ the school...but I want you to know that you were so responsive, flexible and patient and we really appreciate that so we could make this happen!

I'm happy to let you know that the event was a complete success, and The Real Geniuses were a huge part of that. They were amazing. They had the dance floor crowded all night! We've had some version of this event for about ten years. The last five or six have been kind of stale, but this was incredible. Everyone is still talking about the evening in general and the band in particular. They were very professional, but still a lot of fun. We had some hitches in the schedule, but they rolled with it, no problem.
I will definitely be letting folks know who our band was and who their management company is! Thanks for everything.

​Hi Mike:
I am Shannon's mom and I just had to write to express how extremely happy we were with the Real Geniuses. As all weddings, we had some things that did not go as planned and the worst was we had no real heat at the venue. Our family and friends were real troopers, but the band had them dancing the entire night!!! The dance floor was never empty!! I have to say it made up for the lack of heat and we could not have been happier. They were simply AMAZING!!! If anyone asks for a band reference, I will have their name and number on hand!!
Thank you all again so much!!

The Real Geniuses played at the CroppSacripanti wedding last night, and they really made the evening a roaring success for my daughter and her groom. We had attended a wedding 4 years ago where they played, and my husband got their business card on the spot with this day in mind. They did not disappoint.
They had the crowd on the dance floor the entire night (breaks included), fulfilling the couple’s chief ambition that everyone have a blast at their wedding. The 60 somethings enjoyed it just as much as the 20 somethings. We even chose to forego the sparkler exit in favor of one more song with the band.
The band was especially gracious regarding the bride's request (made ahead of time) to surprise the groom by singing. They backed her up beautifully with no rehearsal, and it was a great moment. The night was everything they wanted it to be, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of band.
Thanks,

Hi Mike!
I wanted to shoot you a quick email about The Real Geniuses at our wedding. I can sum it up in one word...AWESOME!!! They were SO good and had the dance floor packed for the majority of the night!! Plus, multiple people have complimented their performance (including my parents) and still continue to do so when we talk to our wedding guests. Also, leading up to and including our big day, Elena was an absolute pleasure to work with...so sweet and professional!
We absolutely made the right choice in using you all for our wedding day musical entertainment!!! I will write a review for Sam Hill (and The Real Geniuses) on weddingwire and theknot.com! I haven't yet done so because of competing demands, but it's on my todo list so stay tuned. :o)

Mike,
Jason and the gang were fantastic! We are kind of a crazy crew (understatement) and The Real Geniuses handled it all with friendly, fun professionalism. They could not have been more accommodating even when dealing with my Surface Pro hitch up so we could play Joy to the World for my 82yearold dad who just wanted to dance to it with all his granddaughters.
We would definitely recommend this group/ask for them again!

Hi Mike,
Thank you so much for reaching out and the congratulations! It's been a really busy and amazing time.
The Real Geniuses did such a great job! The communication from Jason was proactive and professional but also relaxed, which was great with everything else going on at the same time. They provided us the song list and we selected what we liked (to give him a feel for what we wanted) and they just took it from there. They played from our selections and also played to the crowd. On the day of the reception Jason was very organized but also adjusted on the fly for a few changes/items that we didn't coordinate with him. We received many compliments about the band! In short, we wouldn't want to imagine how our reception would have gone without The Real Geniuses! Money well spent and would absolutely recommend them!
Thank you again for all of your and Sam Hill's help.
Kind Regards,
Erik and Elizabeth

Hi Andrew,
I would like you to know that the Real Geniuses completely rocked it at my wedding. They were so good, I had one friend admit he didn't like bands at weddings at all but this band was really good. Another friend thought the IPod was playing during a break then walked into the ballroom and saw the band playing and couldn't believe how great they were. They played quiet music during dinner and just played so well while we danced. Jason was great to work with, they played all the songs I requested and stayed away from ones I didn't want to hear. Please let them know they were incredible! Thanks!

Hi Andrew!
The Real Geniuses were an amazing band!! We were so, so happy we chose them because they were absolutely perfect. We can't even tell you how many people came up to us after the wedding and said how great the band was, how their sound was perfect and their song choice kept people on the dance floor the whole night. My mom, unfortunately, was sick at the wedding and even she couldn't keep off the dance floor because they were so great. I had people tell me they waited for a bad song or something to go get a drink and they never could go because each song was better than the last. My dad, a former guitarist and somewhat of a music snob, absolutely loved them, especially their rendition of ACDC. Anyway, those are just a few examples of how great they are. Jason and I also feel like their price is too low for how good they are, we both think you could charge more for them.
We wanted a wedding with lots of booze, food, and dancing and The Real Geniuses made the last part happen, we couldn't be happier.
Thank you so much!!

The Real Geniuses band was a huge hit ! So often it seems people decide on a DJ but a live band is the way to go. Everyone is still talking about how great the band was. We will definitely recommend them.
I only had a little dialogue with the band as the people at Bay Woods handle so many of the affairs during the wedding. But I made sure to thank them and tell them what a wonderful job they did.
The song selection was spot on for this crowd. I could tell how they moved from one genre to another and also at the end of the evening they pumped it up even more to get a good send off. What was funny was the dancing started right after the appetizers ! Even before the salads were served....must have been a good sign.
Thank you for being prompt in returning all correspondence for it helped in getting
the plans laid out successfully. Have a great rest of the year.

The guys were very easy to work with leading up to our wedding and put on an incredible performance at the reception. They were able to take the exact pulse of the guests (wide age range) and played songs that appealed to everyone. They also learned two new songs for us. For weeks after the wedding, we and our families received great compliments on the band.

Apologies for the delayed response we've been traveling since the wedding and I'm just now getting settled back into things. Here's our review of the Real Geniuses:
THEY KICKED ASS!
Wow. Where to start?! These guys (and gal) are incredible. After searching for a band for quite a while, we hired the Real Geniuses to play our wedding in Washington, DC through Sam Hill Bands. This was handsdown the best decision we made at our wedding. Their demo video should give you a pretty good idea of what the Real Geniuses sound like and are capableof. Always the skeptics, and knowing that bands often sound very different in the studio than when performing live, we caught one of their live gigs up in Columbia, MD before deciding to book them. We were blown away they sounded just as good live as they did in their online demos. Dozens of our guests commented on how awesome these guys were at our wedding. They had almost all of our guests up and on the dance floor, even the people who don't normally dance. At the end of the night, we didn't want the party to stop. Our ceremony went a little longer than we had planned, so the band played almost nonstop for the last 2.5 hours of our reception. Best of all, the band totally rocked our request for a special firstdance song. We danced to a slow, acoustic version of Huey Lewis's The Power of Love that the band came up with in the weeks before the wedding. After a couple of minutes, as we had requested, they segued into the full, electric version of the song (yes, from Back to the Future) and we called our guests onto the dance floor. The band was great to work with ahead of our wedding to come up with something special for us. Now I just need to find an excuse to throw another huge party and hire these guys again.
Thanks again!
Tad

Hi Andy,
Sorry for such a late response to your email....after the honeymoon it seems to have taken us quite a while to get back in the swing of things! We've been living the dream!
However, I would like to take any and every opportunity to thank and praise The Real Geniuses for a phenomenal performance at our wedding! One reason I had decided on a band over a DJ was because I didn't think we had a dancing crowd and I figured a live show would give people something fun to watch from their chairs. Well, the Geniuses were fun to watch but nobody stayed seated for long! All our guests, from eight year old boys to conservative old ladies, were on the dance floor shaking what their mamas gave them! Seriously, they were not just dancing they were getting down!! I can't even count how many compliments the band got, both for their musical chops and for being sweet, friendly, and accommodating. Jason was very easy to work with and never said no even learning The Jackson Five's I'll Be There for my fatherdaughter dance only one month before the wedding. (They rocked that song, by the way highly suggest they add it to their permanent repertoire!) On the big day, Jason seamlessly emceed introductions, toasts, etc. and even had some funny, friendly banter with some of our more outgoing guests! The music was incredible and they are such spirited performers! All of our old favorites and special requests! I literally could not stop dancing my husband and I skipped several previously planned photo ops to stay on the dance floor. Some of my husbands groomsmen, who had NEVER been spotted dancing before, even at their own weddings, were jamming to Summer of '69 and White Wedding. One of my most heartwarming memories of the wedding was the family of a close friend who had very recently passed away laughing and twirling each other across the dance floor. What a powerful testimony to the joy that The Real Geniuses bring with their music. Of course the biggest testimony was the fact that all of our guests CLAPPED and CHANTED One more song! until the band very graciously played a rousing encore. It felt like the end of a sold out concert rather than a wedding! Doesn't get any better than that.
If there is anything I can do in terms of providing referrals on behalf of The Real Geniuses I will gladly do so. There are many reasons why our wedding was special, and The Real Geniuses are near the top of the list! All my best to them!!
Thanks to Sam Hill as well for all your help.

The band was amazingall of our family and friends could not stop raving about them (we of course already knew how good they were!) We wanted to get everyone on the dance floor and the band was definitely able to fulfill our wishwe had a hard time getting people to leave after they played their last song! Ryan and I could not have asked for anything better and want to thank you and the band for making the music one of the highlights of our reception.
It has been a pleasure working with you and I will certainly recommend Sam Hill and the Real Geniuses to all of my family and friends!
Thanks again.

Do it. Book them. You will not regret it one bit.
A year ago, we were reviewing bands and we fell upon The Real Geniuses when we were out one night. My now husband and I are 36 you and we really were planning on going with something more Motown a mellow vibe. After listening to one set of The Real Geniuses, we started thinking that this could REALLY be a fun band. We totally changed our concept of the wedding after seeing them. Weddings should be fun and vibrant...not mellow. We were still really nervous to book them as we'd only seen them for 20 minutes total. Much like you, they gave me several people to contact as references. Everyone raved. We booked them and haven't looked back.

Start to finish, the entire process was professional. Do not worry even slightly about their ability to Emcee. I gave them a list with names, agendas, when I wanted announcements made etc. As I didn't have a wedding coordinator, I was very specific. They were right on time with everything. When my Maid of honor told the band we were ready to be announced, Jason first came over to ensure everyone was lined up appropriately . We didn't have a wedding planner and this small extra step, was a surprise and impressed me.

The announcements were perfect, everyone clapped etc. We had the band play all of the typical first dances live (instead of IPO). As the bride, the day is a bit of a blur but there will be surprises and moments that stick with you. After my husband and I were announced and we were dancing (The spy who loved me). We were maybe 45 seconds into it.......when I actually noticed the band for the first time. I thought to myself, That's the band playing..... not a tape. Strange I know, but they had NAILED the song and it took a moment to process that it was live music. It was a great moment.

Everyone danced at this wedding. Everyone. About 70 people on the dance floor, and it was a small dance floor. My 81 year old grandmother was dancing. I have NEVER seen her dance at any function. After the event, our guests called us to rave about the band. The wait staff stopped us to say they had never seen a group have more fun at a wedding at that facility. It was brilliant. Everything went smoothly. I have not one bad thing to say.

I said about two things to the band that night....only because I didn't have to. They got every detail right. We had a fairly small facility and the noise level was perfect. Microphones just appeared any time a guest was giving a speech. Breaks between sets were brief. Also, we'd given strict orders to them about requests and what we didn't want them to play. I had several guests that came to me and stated, the band won't play this song or that...... The Real Geniuses had it all under control. We Loved it.

Since pictures speak louder than words, here are a few photos from that night. Our guests were dancing machines. If you book them, your's will be too. Please Please Please, if you have specific questions do not hesitate to ask. And don't hesitate to book them.

Dear Andy:
I am pleased to write this letter for one of the bands that you represent, The Real Geniuses, who performed at the Doubletree Charlottesville for a Wedding Reception on the eve of December 19, 2010.
I had the pleasure of working with Jason prior to the wedding and during the reception. The Real Geniuses gave a stellar performance under extreme circumstances, as our area experienced one of the worst snow storms in over a decade. Simply making this statement doesn’t really indicate what the band was up against and feel that you and others need to know the chain events that awaited them on the night of the 19th.
First of all, the wedding doubled in size and outgrew the original space assigned. It is a problem that most hotels love, but unfortunately has a domino effect. Jason was more than accommodating when we had to reduce the size of his band’s performance area. He was always responsive to my emails and calls, and certainly made my job a lot easier. But most of all, he had the foresight to arrive ahead of the storm to make sure that they would be here to perform as contracted, regardless of the conditions outside. Our city virtually came to a standstill, but not inside our hotel. We were at sellout for two nights, with guests waiting in our Lobby for rooms, not to mention, two weddings and a Holiday party that had been booked previously for months and personnel who could not make it in. Perhaps one of the biggest issues that I faced was the couple that the Geniuses would be performing for could not get married in their church and we were challenged with doing our 2nd wedding of the day in less than ideal situations. Just when I thought we had everything under control, the ceremony had to be postponed not, once, not twice, but 3 times as the Groom anxiously awaited in our lobby for his Bride, whom might I mention, was not a runaway Bride, but a stuck in the snow Bride. Now that the Bride had arrived, Jason and his members would soon be able to do what they came to do 2 days earlier and that was to perform for the newlywed couple and their guests. But as fate would have it, we were faced with yet another problem, in that the Bride’s Father was being delayed as he became stuck in route, and yes the ceremony had to be delayed for the fourth time. Where was Jason and his members….. waiting patiently, being flexible and I am sure wondering whether they would ever actual play. But play they did.. they were AMAZING, adapting to the numerous changes to our timeline, showing the upmost in professionalism in every aspect and performing unbelievably for a wedding that many will never forget.
I can without a doubt recommend this group to anyone that may want not only exceptional music for their event, but a group that goes beyond making the client their number one priority. I would welcome the opportunity to work with them again and please relay my heartfelt gratitude to each of them for everything they did while they were with us in Charlottesville. I only hope they arrived safely back home and did not experience any difficulties along the way.
Gratefully yours,
Linda Winkler
Group Sales and Wedding Manager

Hi Mike,
Thanks for emailing, I had actually planned on dropping you a line about our experience with The Real Geniuses. We absolutely loved them!! They did such a wonderful job, everyone was dancing the whole time they were playing and our only complaint was that they didn't play long enough because we all were having so much fun, in hindsight would have shelled out the extra $ to get another hour or so out of them. If you need anyone to act as a reference for them, we'd be happy to since they really made the wedding so much fun. Please let Jason and the rest of the band know how much we loved them and if they need anything to let us know.
Thanks,
Francie Iliff

Hey Andy,
Omigod, I can't say enough good things about the Real Geniuses. Where should I start? They were AWESOME!
They were all truly professional from ensuring the introductions were done correctly to keeping the flow of the evening on schedule. Their ability to modify where needed by playing towards the end of dinner was very much appreciated. It showed they were willing to work with our time schedule.
The best part is the guys rocked the house! Our friends and family can't stop talking about it! People I thought would never dance at our wedding, were the first ones on the dance floor. I've never seen my father dance so much and towards the end of the evening, he admitted that he couldn't go on any longer, not because he didn't love the music, but because he was just plain too tired!!
Highlights of the evening include some of our more colorful friends doing the Milli Vinilli dance to one of your songs and Bob's interpretive dance to We got the Beat to get everyone back on the dance floor after a break.
They are a fantastic band and we would recommend you to anybody we know looking for a good party band. Kudos to you and the Real Geniuses!
Thanks,
Meghan

ALL of our guests loved the band and hardly anyone sat on their seats. They were on the dance floor the whole time. And thank you Jason for being willing to help Jonah out with his surprise for me. I was totally surprised and I loved every minute of Jonah's song. thank you again so much for that. Several of my friends left saying they hope they can hire the band for one of their events and that they'd definitely recommend them to anyone getting married.
Thank you again and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

Justin,
I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful the band was but I do know that the dance floor was filled the entire night and that our guests chanted one more song when they were finished. They were so energetic and fun and their vocals were even better than on the videos or CD! Jason was so great to work with and not only learned our first song, but helped me to work out a set list and also looked over the special songs I had planned for their breaks. People would laugh at us when we told them we had booked an 80s band for the wedding so we were shocked when most all of the guests would sing along with the band for all the songs. We had a very formal wedding but they really loosened up the place once dinner was over and the wedding reception wouldn't have been nearly as fantastic without them!
Everyone from our youngest cousins (age 2) to our oldest relatives (at 90) were out dancing to the music and my mom said she hadn't danced that much since high school. The kids even skipped their movie to hang out and dance with the grownups! The evening was a complete blast thanks to them! They would get our highest recommendation to anyone looking for an energetic band with great music!
Thanks for all your help with getting us set up!

The Real Geniuses' music was fantastic. Our guests made many positive comments. The band was very flexible played Happy Birthday for two of our guests. Also, the band was very sweet and patient with our younger guests. The little girls think that Abby is just the greatest and are still talking about her. I would recommend Real Geniuses' to our friends and I'm sure that our guests will do the same.

Hi Andrew!
Thanks for writing about the Real Geniuses we just got back from Europe, so it's a good time to sit down and reflect on the wedding.
John and I thought the band was over the top fantastic! They played perfectly, and were so much fun. We had a ton of people ask us for their name after the wedding. Everyone was dancing and signing along. We could not have asked for better. It was perfect that they played older people music for the first set and then played all of our favorite party hits for the duration of the evening.
We got started a little late with the music because dinner took a bit longer than we had planned, so The Real Geniuses were so nice in not taking a second set break and just playing straight through to the end of the night. Everyone definitely could have kept dancing for at least another hour, so we were sorry that the venue time elasped.
The band was also incredibly helpful in getting a sound system ready for the toasts, etc., which really put my father at ease.
Thank you also for all of your help during the band selection process. I really enjoyed working with you, and I think you really pointed us to a fantastic choice! Thank you so much.
Please let us know if you need any other information!

I wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time with the Real Geniuses and they really blew us away at how great they were! Their song selections, set lists and their performance was flawless and really impressive. Even after Mark and I left, we heard that they stayed encore after encore and all of my guests kept asking where we found this band. They were really great and I was hoping you could send this note along to them to let them know we really appreciate them coming so far out for our day and making the evening absolutely perfect. I will certainly highly recommend them in the future. Great job!! Also, if you or the band need any video footage, you can contact Julie from BVideo . She was the videographer that night and was there until almost 1 a.m. and got some great stuff. Thanks!

I have to say that the band was amazing! When they were playing, the dance floor was not empty for a second and was full with guests of all ages. Everyone could not stop talking about how they were not your typical wedding band, and that they were great.
Not only did Jason and his group learn the song for our first dance, but they learned a song that Brian wanted to sing to me.....and they sounded amazing doing both! They were very professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. They were instrumental in making the event run smoothly. Our wedding planner loved them as well and plans to recommend them to clients in the future. I will let Brian give you even more details, as I know that he can not stop talking about how great they were!
Thank you for all of you help, and booking us such a great band!

Hello Andy,
I cannot begin to tell you how much we enjoyed the Real Geniuses at our wedding reception! Although we were searching for an 80's cover band, I was so appreciative that (at our request)they began the night by playing 50's, 60's and 70's songs that got everyone out on the dance floor. In fact, many guests were dancing by the second song of their first set!
The atmosphere of our reception was fun, casual and festive, and I owe that largely to this band. Thank you again for all of your work in helping organize the Real Geniuses for our wedding reception. I would highly recommend them for any occasion!

Hi Andy,
The Real Geniuses are by far the BEST BAND !!!! Wilson, me, or any of our friends have ever seen. I have had so many people tell me that they had the most fun dancing to their music than any other wedding they have been to. The band members were really, really nice. Working with Jason Hughes was an absolute pleasure. He was so easy to work with, and my wedding coordinator liked them so much she will refer them to future brides.
Wilson and I came home and watched their demo video again after the wedding and wanted so badly to be back at our wedding. I hope they play somewhere public in Richmond soon!
Please pass on my thanks to the band. They really went above and beyond and put on an incredible show!

I know it took a while before they finally got a chance to showcase their stuff, but when they did, they WERE AWESOME. The guys were superflexible with the delay in starting and, most importantly, sounded incredible. At least three of our guests (that I remember) came up to me and commented on how cool the band was.
Before I forget, I have to tip my hat to Jason for saving me with his copy of the Bette Midler song. Thanks.
We especially liked the rendition of Up Where we Belong, A++ on that one. The evening truly went by in a flash. The Real Geniuses are real pros. We would GLADLY recommend them to anyone else.

The Real Geniuses' lead singer, Jason, was absolutely fantastic to work with. He really took the time to understand what we wanted for our wedding, including learning a song just for us!
