Hey Lauren,
The Finns did an absolutely amazing job! I can’t tell you how many people I walked past during the event and overheard comments like “I really like this band” or something of the sort. I personally enjoyed their style immensely and they were all so nice and easy to work with.
But thank you so incredibly much for recommending this band. I’ve never been disappointed with a Sam Hill Band and certainly not this one. The Finns were the perfect fit for that event.
Thanks for everything!

Hey Andrew,
Annemarie and I just wanted to thank you and the rest of The Finns for making our wedding celebration so special. We were blown away with your performance. All of our guests were raving about you guys. Even my 85 year old grandma was on the dance floor all night. Your renditions of Forever and You'll Be in My Heart for the first dances were perfect. We can't thank you enough.
The Finns were really incredible. You're really taking a chance when you've only heard studio recordings, but their sound and energy were the same live. Way more than a wedding band, just a really solid cover band. You could tell they have been playing together for a long time.
Also comms with the band were seamless. Kenya reached out to us a couple weeks before the wedding to introduce herself. We asked for a quick Zoom call with Mark beforehand to discuss first dance songs and he was willing to do so. Overall they made our wedding feel extra special, particularly since they learned our first dance song and absolutely crushed it!
Hope this helps!
All the best,

We couldn't have asked for anything better; no doubt the highlight of the wedding.
They were very easy to work with and were very accommodating to our requests. If I could be unbiased, I'd say they were the best band I've heard at a wedding. Many of our guests had the same opinion. They're remarkably talented musicians/vocalists, and their sound was incredible as well (in a venue that's not particularly built for good acoustics).
They fed off the crowd and had literally almost everyone on the dance floor the entire night in a room split primarily between 30 and 60 year olds not an easy ask! I can't say enough good things about them; they absolutely made our night!
It's also been a pleasure working with Sam Hill; your team was also incredibly easy to work with and accommodating. I'd highly recommend to anyone looking for great music! We will leave a review on The Knot.

You beat me to the email. I truly cannot say enough about The Finns…they completely exceeded my expectations! There wasn’t one song that I wanted to sit down to. I had so many people ask me where we found the band. They all RAVED about The Finns. I was concerned about the volume…but it was perfect…loud enough to jam to, but not too loud that you could not talk.
We had them learn “Fast Car” for the reception and they knocked it out of the park!!! I think they were better than the Luke Combs cover!!
My only regret is that I did not get to meet them or thank them for such a fantastic evening.
Truly The Finns were the highlight of wedding. So professional, such great vocals, such a great song selection!
Please extend a heartfelt thank you to all of them. I know it was their first time to Sea Island, I hope they enjoyed it.

The band was phenomenal! the dance floor was full and EVERYONE was very complementary and loved them! I would recommend them to everyone and would love for them to come to Virginia for some of their performances.
My husband and I plan to come to Greensboro at some point to hear them again.
I will go to “The Knot” and “Wedding Wire” and leave them 5 star reviews. And I am sure Emily and Chase will as well.
Take care and please tell them what a fabulous job they did!
There was a prominent horse farmer there from Kentucky and he said “I have been to a lot of functions, but this one is at the top. I have never had so much fun. I haven’t danced that much in 20 years”!

This is the father of the Bride with a couple things to add. The Finns were great! My eyes lit up when they said “now we’re gonna play some Talking Heads.” And the choice of song — This Must Be the Place — for a wedding in the backyard of our home was really thoughtful. In fact, the entire playlist showed a lot of thought. May have been by accident but I’m giving them credit. Hope i get invited to another event where they’re playing.

Hi Mike,
We loved our band The Finns! They had the dance floor filled the whole night long and perfectly read the crowd's energy and adjusted accordingly. They even started the night with a surprise rendition of Harvest Moon (was a full moon the night of our wedding!). We asked them to learn Mr. Brightside (a crowd favorite!) and they absolutely crushed it. They were professional in setup all the way through breakdown. We couldn't recommend The Finns and the team at Sam Hill Entertainment enough.

Total gentlemen as well as accomplished musicians. We would love to have them back at our next event…once we recover from this one :)
Many guests asked where we found them. I sang Sam Hill’s praises. I have hired bands from you for our wedding in 2005, fam reunions here twice with Adrian Duke and now the wonderful Finns!
Btw, we put up the band in our studio apartment. They were so grateful and left it spotless. If only family were as conscientious!

The Finns were absolutely AMAZING! From a coordination point of view, they were great to work with and super flexible. Many times working with bands can be complex and involves managing a lot of demands but that was not my experience with them at all. They had a very clientcentered focus on wedding day and were so eager to meet their needs.
Additionally, the music was PHENOMENAL I seriously want to get an “I’m with the band” tshirt and be their latest groupie.

Hi Mike,
The band was incredible – they “nailed it” with the music selection. This wedding crowd was a little older than most weddings (40s, 50s, 60s) and we sang and danced all night to great music (I was quite literally hoarse the next morning!).
It was very easy working with them and they accommodated our timeline and requests throughout the evening. They also played our first song brilliantly (which they learnt for our wedding) and executed the “fake” with our guests perfectly.
People are still talking about how good they were. We are very happy.
Thank you!

Hi Katie,
Thanks so much for reaching out—you beat us to the punch. Things went way more than well... it was phenomenal!
We seriously could not be more ecstatic about The Finns performing at our wedding. They were the PERFECT fit. Not only were they extremely talented, the soundtrack for the whole event was so seamlessly tied together from happy hour to dinner to set lists to break lists that there was never a down or awkward moment.
They were also super kind, accommodating, and easy to work with, and if the opportunity arises, we would love the opportunity to work with them again.
We also want to express how thankful we are that they learned our first dance song! We've listened to videos of it so many times since Saturday and can't get enough... they sounded SO good. It was very special to us.
Please pass our gratitude along to the band members (and our Greensboro neighbors, as we live in Winston!).
Thank you thank you thank you!!!

I can not say enough good things about The Finns. What a great band! We were looking for a classic rock 70's band and we found them. It was so fun since we had a vintage theme...(and the bonus was I knew all the words to all the songs, lol.) We didn't want to have the same ole, same ole wedding songs and wanted to really have a party, and The Finns delivered. Their song list was great and we were so happy that they were willing to learn a song that Carson and Zach requested. We especially appreciate the acoustic guitar being played at the ceremony. Thank you to Mark for setting up the power monitor and playlist for the cocktail hour because I had no clue how to do it. One less thing for me, mother of the bride, to worry about. They MC'd the reception and were so on top of everything. We had sooooo many people saying how great they were, in fact at the end of the night, the crowd was chanting one more song and they graciously indulged the crowd. (Personally, when the crowd is begging for more, I think that is a sign of a really good band.) Hopefully they had fun too and got plenty to eat and drink.... I know it was a long drive to Atlanta but we really appreciate the effort it took. Thank you again for the ease of booking (my two sons also used Sam Hill entertainment to book their bands for their weddings). Please let all the guys in The Finns know how much we loved them. Hope to go see them play again.

Hi Andrew,
I just have to say The Finns were absolutely FANTASTIC! We knew they’d be good when we booked them after listening to a few of their samples online, but we had no idea just how absolutely incredible they would be live. They really wowed us and our guests, and everyone (ourselves included) danced way more than we could’ve expected! They read the crowd so well and played hit, after hit, after hit. It was amazing. Jake and I both agree, The Finns were probably our favorite part of the wedding (besides the getting married part, of course). Please let everyone in the band know how much we loved every second of their performance. They were exceptional.
Thank yall again so much for everything it was the wedding of our dreams!

The Finns were truly a highlight of our day. They were very kind to us, easy to work with and just simply amazing. Every single guest told us they thought the band was incredible and many said they would pay to seem them in concert. Many asked us where they were based so they could look them up. They sounded amazing, had great energy and played all of our special requests — including a very fun rendition of 500 Miles at the end of the night. We had such an amazing time, and as music lovers, were completely blown away by their talent. We honestly don’t think we paid enough for them.
Thanks for reaching out and thanks to you for making the booking process so smooth. We’ll leave a glowing review on The Knot and will definitely recommend Sam Hill and The Finns to anyone else we know who is getting married in the area!

You received a new review on The Knot from Taylor Shay:
Working with Katie and Sam Hill Entertainment was amazing, we were between 2 completely opposite bands and Katie helped us pick a band that made our wedding a night us and our guests will never forget. Katie with Sam Hill was extremely supportive throughout the entire process! I strongly recommend every couple work with Sam Hill!
My husband and I and our guests have still not stopped talking about how amazing the Finns were. We have been to weddings with great bands and those brides/grooms are saying the Finns were even better than their own wedding bands! It was like we were at a rock concert at our wedding! They were absolutely amazing and I think everyone should have the Finns play at their wedding. Their energy was incredible and they literally had our 136 guests on the dance floor from start to finish. They could have had us dancing and singing all night long! Their energy was amazing as well as their song selection. Our wedding was SO much fun and the Finns are the reason why! They were so kind and amazing and I wish I could see them play all the time. I wish we could get married again and have the Finns there. We are so grateful for them and will never forget their performance at our wedding!

Hello Mike,
Thank you to you and the band, you guys were fantastic. We really enjoyed the music and the only complaint that my wife had was that we didn't get a chance to enjoy other parts of the wedding because you kept us on the dancefloor the entire night! The call with you the week before was very helpful too, thanks for making time around our schedules for that. We had a lot of great feedback from our guests too. Can't wait to see you guys at Joymongers in Greensboro some time. Thank you again!

Hi Andrew
I have been to many weddings in my lifetime and The Finns were hands down the best band we have ever heard. They are fun, entertaining, engaged with the audience, smiling and most important – have extraordinary talent vocally and with the guitars. I couldn’t be happier with our decision to book them for our wedding.
They played an amazing setlist that had something for everyone of all ages. Saying they learned our song requests is an understatement. They played them with such heart that it brought tears and chills to our audience. They worked with my Maid of Honor to learn a song and tie it into her speech and they coordinated this so beautifully.
Everyone was screaming ‘One more song!’ at the end of night – to which they obliged and sang their hearts out. Everyone was on the dancefloor the entire night either singing along to every song or talking about how amazing they were!!
Thank you so much!!

Hi Mike,
We'll definitely place a glowing review on the Knot for Sam Hill.
First, the Finns will be a legendary part of our wedding. Their set list was amazing. Our dance floor was full from the start of the set to the very end. They even played an encore song after imploring chants by our guests for One more song. Second, prewedding, their manager Kenya and lead Mark were in open communication with us about our schedule, announcements, and coordinating our first dance. We actually love their rendition of the song we chose for our first dance (You are the best thing by Ray LaMontagne) that we are going to ask them for a recording! Third, they coordinated really well and effortlessly transitioned music between live to recorded for their set breaks. Finally, they were just nice and pleasant guys to work with.
For Sam Hill from the get go when we first submitted interest in different bands, we received prompt and efficient replies. After booking the band, the communication and expectation setting from Sam Hill was invaluable (e.g. when to expect contact with the band, coordinating a first dance song, etc) as it answers all of our questions before we even had them and reduced an area of wedding stress.
We will absolutely keep Sam Hill and refer on.

Andrew, Kenya, and The Finns,
Thank you all so much for helping to make our wedding night so much fun! It's hard to believe that it has already been close to 6 months since that great night at Army Navy (Sorry for the delayed thank you!) You were fantastic from start to finish, keeping the dance floor packed, picking awesome songs, and playing them to perfection while adding your own style. We have received so many compliments about you; people really loved your performance. We recently received our full wedding video, and have loved reliving the weekend all over again! Kate and I had an amazing day, and we feel so lucky that we were able to celebrate with everyone after being delayed for a year. Thank you for sticking with us, making the special video for us last September, for finding an awesome sax player, and for helping to create an unforgettable reception for us and our guests. We appreciate all of your hard work, and we hope to see you and hear you again sometime soon. Happy holidays!

Thank you,

Hi Andrew,
Thanks so much for your email and well wishes. Everything with the Finns was absolutely fantasticWill and I said to each other on the dance floor that they were, by far, the best money we had spent on our whole event! Numerous guests were asking us all about them and wanted their booking contact details (which we of course provided). The Finns truly made our party, and were not only excellent musicians but wonderful entertainers. Their ability to read the crowd, adjust songs as needed, and get nearly every last person out on the dancefloor was just amazing. It was also such a treat to have them learn our first dance songthey really did everything they could to make our night special by honoring that and other song requests. Their Shout mashup was truly legendary! Honestly, it's difficult for us to overstate our high praise for The Finns, and we are so grateful that we got to have them with us on our special day. I cc'd Kenya, the Finn's manager, on this email in hopes that my sincerest thanks is passed on to the band.
As far as working with Sam Hill Entertainment, it was a breeze. Booking was easy, and I felt that there was ample communication leading up to the event not only in regard to payment, but logistics as well. Everything went off without a hitch! As I said, we have passed on your booking info to our friends/family, and will of course keep y'all in mind if we ever throw another big bash!
Again, our many, many thanks to you and The Finns for making our wedding unforgettable,
Gloria and Will

We have worked with The Finns on a few member events before, and it was great working with them at James River for the YountPoston wedding reception on 10/2/21. It was a perfect night under the tent on the back lawn. The client was thrilled with everything!

Hi Mike!
Thanks so much! Sorry for the late responsewe've been travelling pretty much since the wedding. We had a great experience with both bands. Everyone loved Bent Mountain Trio for the ceremony and cocktail hour and we got rave reviews from our guests about The Finns!
The dance floor was packed the entire reception. We expected The Finns to learn our first dance song (which they absolutely crushed) but they also learned songs which were not on their song list that we picked for the father/bride dance and the mother/groom dance which we were not expecting. We couldn't be happier with the bands we picked and our advice to everyone getting married is to get live music! My only regret from the wedding really is that the bands couldn't play longer.
Thank you for your help during the planning process and we will certainly recommend Sam Hill when we can.

Thanks for reaching out and sorry for the delay. The Finns were absolutely incredible!!! From the selection of music to the way they played each song in their own blues kind of way was amazing. I have known some of our guests that attended our wedding for 20 years and have never seen them dance until that evening as the Finns were playing. We received multiple comments from each of our guest stating the Finns killed it and really put on a great show. We even had a 2 year old girl wearing Elvis glasses with side burns dancing to their music. Haha.
We asked the Finns to learn catfish blues from Gary Clark jr. The way they performed that song was impressive. Clearly it was right in their genre wheel house. Just out of curiosity, they wouldn’t happen to have their version recorded somewhere say on YouTube or a music app? It was so well done and we wouldn’t mind hearing it again.
We will absolutely recommend the Finns to friends as well and use them when we have future events. Please let them know we said thank you very much and for such a wonderful and entertaining evening.

We especially loved that they learned our special request Love Shack by the B52s, it is one of my parents favorite songs to dance to, & I know they will be talking about that moment for years to come! Working with Sam Hill was also great, I felt like you guys were super responsive & the site was easy to use and very informative! My only tiny critique on the band would be it felt like there was some dead time in between songs, but other than that Joey & I were so pleased with the band and would highly recommend to anyone we know getting married in the future!

Subject: FW: The Finns

as the father of the bride, the only role I wanted was to pick out the band! I left everything else up to the bride and her mother. When we first checked out your site, the Finns were by far my #1 choice. Their video was exactly the vibe I was looking for. Then my daughter looked at your site and made the exact same choice. She and her mother made a trek up to Greensboro to see the band in Feb 2020 and were sold and we booked them. Then Covid hit and our only hope was to actually have a wedding. I have to say when I got to our venue and they were setting up I was counting to be sure all 5 guys made it.
Working with these guys was very easy. We appreciate their working out all 3 first dance songs live as it makes a big difference. The vibe of the cocktail hour was spot on even though we had to move inside due to a storm. But the real thrill for me was seeing these guys on the stage. I am not a fan of most wedding bands where I feel like it’s the band running the show and it can be very awkward at times and there’s just the usual wedding staples being played every time. Not the case at all with the Finns. We appreciate their handling the typical wedding stuff like calling out the first dances but not doing that in an over the top wedding way, if that makes sense. As everyone was getting situated at the beginning, they played The Weight and that set the tone from the start that this was going to be a bit different. When dinner was done and the speeches out of the way, they kicked it into high gear and I think everyone, old and young, flashed back to the old days of just listening to a really good band. It might have been everyone just being so excited to celebrate after Covid, but the dance floor was really just everyone in one huge pack mixing around with each other like a college party. Not the traditional dancing you might see at a wedding where everyone is paired off which is just not our thing. They did a great job of picking high energy songs which have a lot of callbacks from the crowd. And not a knock on the band in any way, but not one slow song which I am not a fan of at all. Not one person sat down the rest of the night once they started playing. They made the Phish and Grateful Dead songs a real treat (not sure how they did it but they made Casey Jones a revved up party song) and about took the roof off on Sweet Home Alabama with a bunch of Bama grads there. My wife really appreciated their playing 500 Miles and making that so much fun and their Sweet Caroline felt like we are back at Fenway with a big Boston constituency there as well. Wagon Wheel felt like an indoctrination anthem for the northerners in the crowd. Fast forward to the end and What’s Up (4 Non Blondes) as a closing number just an inspired choice as I would never have seen that as a song to play at a wedding, let alone a group singalong with everyone belting it out to close out the night.
I watched their video on your site a bunch of times and was sold on their southern sole and charm, as they called it. It really came through. As did the quality of the sound, their proficiency at playing tight at fast speeds and their voices blending, as nothing to me is more annoying than a pitchy wedding band. We had tons of compliments about the band, many asking where did we even find a band like this. I was really ecstatic as I know most people expect the typical type of wedding band. And they clearly made the night as we’re still getting lots of compliments about the warmth and fun of the entire evening, which is solely related to the band, and of course some alcohol.
We have 2 more daughters to get married off. We will be back. In my mind, we’re picking the dates based on the Finns being available and we’ll figure out the rest later. And hopefully we will find some other parties along the way to bring them back to ATL. Once I get the other 2 weddings paid for, I will definitely want them at my retirement party!
I was not too involved with the details with Sam Hill, but Cathy told me all the communications were seamless and you guys were extremely easy to work with.
I am sure my daughter and new “son” will weigh in soon as well. I can’t wait for the wedding video to come out. I expect I will be replaying the party over and over.

Take care,

Hi Mike,
Finally catching up now that the wedding is behind us. Thanks for checking in.
First, I want to say how much we appreciate Sam Hill and the band working with us through the scheduling for the first wedding and then moving the contract over to the second wedding. Was certainly a challenging year in many ways.
We had an absolutely magnificent day for the wedding. Weather was stunning for the service and allowed people to take advantage of the outdoor space at the venue. At one point in the evening I was afraid the band might lose out to the beautiful evening. Everyone settled in eventually though and made good use of the dance floor.
The Finns were everything we expected. The music selection was great. Its nice when the entire crowd knows the songs and joins the celebration. The Finns was a great choice and I am really glad we were able to make the scheduling work and have them play for one daughter’s wedding.
Again, many thanks.

Hi Mike – let me just say that our reception at the Grand Bohemian in Asheville, NC was spectacular!  I have heard from many people who attended, some more than once, expressing what a good time they had and how great the band was. 
Jordan and the rest of The Finns were great to work with before, during and after the event.  The music and atmosphere they delivered was perfect for our setting.  Their mix of music and style blended well the crowd we had, which is the reason we picked them in the first place.  We couldn’t be happier.  In fact, we are hoping to catch them sometime when they have an event planned that we can travel to.  We have even discussed hiring them again at some point in the future to play for a party. 
We are definitely glad we found Sam Hill and The Knott during the early stages of planning our reception.  You were great to work with and everything progressed flawlessly throughout the process, even during all of the crazy unknowns that was 2020.  We would definitely use your company again for future events!

Daniel and I are writing this email from our honeymoon in Antigua because we were so thrilled with the Finns and wanted to respond right away. I knew they were going to be good, but didn’t expect how fantastic it was going to be. I got SO many compliments and they truly made our night one I will never forget! Even though it was a smaller group than they normally play for, they still made us feel like it was super important to them. 
I requested Hey Jude as our last song and sure enough they delivered! Our friends and family surrounded us in a circle as we sang our hearts out. There were a lot of tears and even more smiles. When Daniel and I reflected on the day, we both went to this moment as the one we wouldn’t forget. It was all the Finns! I know multiple people gave tearful thank yous for this special moment!
They truly are an amazing talented group and I hope we cross paths again! Working with Sam Hill has been great as well, we greatly appreciated all the flexibility in rescheduling/accommodating covid restrictions.

I was already really excited for them and when we walked into the reception their sound and style was even better than I was expecting. They did an awesome job handling multiple genres with their own sound, which can be hard to pull off. We loved their rendition of our first dance song that they learned. Guests during and after the wedding couldn’t stop talking about how great the band was. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again or recommend to others if another opportunity presents itself.

Hey Mike,
The Finns were amazing!! We were so thrilled with both their performance at our wedding reception and with their responsiveness in the 2 months leading up to the wedding.  Our ceremony and reception were hosted in the same room, which required the room to be flipped directly after the ceremony in preparation for the reception. The Finns graciously accommodated our hectic schedule, loading their equipment before the ceremony and setting it up during the cocktail hour before the reception kicked off. 
They introduced us to the reception, played for our first dance, parent dances and even learned to play Hava Nagilah especially for our party! They took a scheduled break from playing during dinner and they piped in music that perfectly fit the mood of the party. 
Once they started playing after dinner, our guests rushed the dance floor and never left! The Finns were able to gauge which genres were best received by our guests and adjusted their setlist to suit the party. From their expansive playlist, we made a few special requests. Other than that, they determined what songs to play and everything flowed.
After the party, the first thing many of our guests commented on was how amazing the band was. The Finns are awesome! We would definitely book them again for another party and recommend them without reservation.
Mike, thanks for your help,
Josh and Taylor

So many people told us how great the band was....and they were!!! And such nice guys, cute too! hahaha!!! Could not have been happier with them! Just wish the party could have lasted longer!

Such a small world, but made the night just that much more special :) Ill definitely write a review, they were so great, im just sad I didnt have time to really interact/speak with them to say thank you.

We danced all night long, they played all the best songs, were so easy to work with and professional. They made our wedding an amazing party that we will never forget, all of our guests commented on how great they were. Even the songs they played during their breaks were amazing, no one stopped dancing until the very last song. I love them so much! I will 100% leave feedback on the knot. I did leave the Finn's feedback on wedding wire.

We had so many compliments all evening, and since, about how great the band was, they even got my dad up dancing and singing. We couldn't have been more pleased. I don't think there was anything that could have been better. We were so sad when it ended and they were finished playing, they really helped make our day perfect. Thank you all so much!

Subject: The Finns in Review
I am replying to your latest email to my father, Bibb Frazier, in regards to The Finns and the barn celebration this past June 8th.
As I sat down to write this review, I found myself asking, “Where to begin?” Having grown up with the phrase, “I am speechless,” or some iteration thereof, I find it mildly amusing that it took until two weeks ago today, June 8th, 2019, some 30 years on this planet, for me to at long last experience the realities of that oft overused and, I suspect, rarely experienced adage. Simply put, The Finns exceeded already very high expectations in every way possible. There are no words that can truly capture the joy, the camaraderie, and the current that coursed through the barn and partygoers that evening, electric and unbridled, but if there were, two of them undoubtedly would be, “The Finns!” Their performance managed to appeal simultaneously to three generations, and powerfully enough to get even the eldest of the elders out of the rocking chair and onto his venerable pins, cane waving.
Hats off to Jordan and the rest of the crew for not only being amazing musicians, but also skilled showmen, and genuinely caring folks dedicated to working handinhand with you in the realization of your big day/night’s maximum potentiality, and then some extra for good measure. Communication, 10/10, Pricing, 10/10, and Performance, 11/10! Truly cannot recommend highly enough: The Finns, for the win!

Hey Justin,
Sorry for the delayed response! We just recently got back from our honeymoon.
It is hard to put into words how incredibly pleased we were with the Finns. Communicating with the band was quick and simple, and we never encountered any issues along the way. They turned our reception into an unforgettable experience for not just us, but for all of our family and friends. Everyone continues to comment on how they have never seen a dance floor SO full of people for SO long. The song selection and sound quality were unparalleled. We've attended a lot of weddings, and we have never been more impressed with the overall performance of the band, and I think our guests would agree. We are almost positive that we will see The Finns playing again at one of our friend's weddings! We also requested that the band learn one of our favorite songs, which they had never played before, and they mastered it! The crowd also insisted that the band play an encore song at the end of the night, and it was a perfect finale. I could go on and on about how amazing the entire experience truly was for all of us. We are so thrilled to cherish the memories we have of The Finns playing at our reception.

Hello Mike
WOW! The Finns were absolutely amazing. They made our daughter’s wedding an evening to remember with such energy, fun, and played a wide range of different genre of music from old to new. They were so accommodating and engaging with everyone even letting one of the groomsman sing a couple of songs with them and also allowing the bride and maid of honor to sing a song karaoke style.
Working and planning with them in the weeks prior to the wedding was so easy and they consistently honored our requests. They sounded even better than what we heard on the website. Our family would love the opportunity to hear the “The Finns” again sometime.
Thank you so much in helping make our daughter’s wedding a fun and memorable night. Our guests loved them and kept asking “Who was the band and where did you find them?” Even friends and coworkers that heard them playing from videos that people posted commented on what an awesome band we had for the wedding.
Also thanks to Sam Hill Entertainment for great customer service in helping chose this band and guiding us through the planning process. We will highly recommend your services.

We got tons of compliments from our guests on the wide variety of music they played, and the dance floor was full the whole evening. It meant a lot that they all were willing to work with my Aunt Annie to allow her to sing a special song as they played along. I think our absolute favorite moment (aside from the first dance) was when they played Wagon Wheel to close out the evening, it really was the icing on the cake of an amazing night.
Thank you for all of your help throughout this process, and pass along our appreciation to the band as well.

The FINNS were awesome! We worked with Mark and sent him a playlist of say 20 songs and asked to develop a evening of music that blended with what we picked . We also gave a him a script of events through the evening and he helped make sure we stayed on schedule. Obviously we were pleased with the bands level of talent they were outstanding. They got the guests festive and dancing . We wanted a fun/ party atmosphere and the FINNS delivered. Mark was a consummate professional from beginning to end. We have seen 4 or 5 couples that came to our reception and they all praised the band. A couple of them said they may interested in booking them for parties. Several said it was the best party they had been to in a long time!
Thank you for providing us with a great band to make an unforgettable evening in mine and Jill's lives.

Hi Andrew,
In a word, The Finns were perfect! They were super responsive and communicative leading up to the wedding, arrived on time for the event, were flexible and so pleasant as they setup and got the play area and themselves ready, and the proceeded to perform an amazing show. Feedback we heard from guests even after the very first song was this band is AWESOME! And 'it was like being at a concert... And we had our own private dance party...
Mark and the guys even let my fiancé, David, (who is a musician) play guitar in a song with them, which was a huge hit with the guests and so much fun for me and David.
My only regret is that the night ended before I could properly express my thanks and gratitude for their performance and professionalism. They really topped off an already fabulous day for my niece, Amber and her (now) husband, Bob.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Hi Andy!
I have to let you know that The Finns were absolutely amazing. Every single person at our wedding was (and still is) raving about how stunning they were. The energy and fun that they brought was electric and contagious. I can only give a perfect review to them and spread the word that they were the best party band I have ever seen. There was not a single dull moment and our wedding was magical. Thank you so much and I really hope to see another performance soon!!!

Hi Justin,
The Finns (formerly known as Walrus) were fantastic! Mark has such a great voice and they totally rocked our wedding reception. I was originally drawn to them because of their eclectic song list. I gave them very little guidance on what to play and they totally delivered. They also learned our first dance song and it sounded great. Mark was such a pleasure to work with, he always responded quickly to my emails and was very professional. The band showed up on time and coordinated with our venue prior to the reception to nail down any details. I've had so many of our wedding guests tell me how much they loved our band and I would recommend them 100%.
Thank you for all of your help.
