The Motion Band

I just want to say thank you so much for everything this weekend. The band was my favorite thing from our wedding. From beginning to end absolute nailed it and kept everyone on the dance floor! We couldn’t have asked for a better range of music.
Thank y’all so much!

I loved every minute of it!! You guys were fantastic!! My brother in law who has a band of his own said what great musicians you all were esp guitarist. I loved being up onstage for”shout”! Along with the wedding couple and my grandson!! The band can make or break a reception and y’all made it a happy joyful night to remember. The floor was packed all night Thank you so much for your efforts to make it perfect for us!!

We just returned from our honeymoon in Italy and are still catching up on emails and post-wedding odds and ends. 🙂 We had THE best wedding weekend and Motion helped make that true! The band was truly incredible and made the night so much fun. Everyone from the few kids in attendance to the oldest members of our families were on the dance floor thanks to your team. We had several different people ask us throughout the night “who are these guys?” and comment about how incredible the band was. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if you hear from a few of our “soon to be engaged” friends within the next year about hiring you all for their big day. 😉 Every member of the Motion team was polite, professional, friendly, high energy, talented, and seemed truly committed to making sure everyone was having an amazing time. Thank you so much for all that Motion did to make our wedding reception a night we will never forget! You all have been so easy to work with from the very beginning and we are so grateful to you for your frequent contact in the weeks leading up to the big day. You have been a pleasure to work with, Haley! We would be so grateful to you if you would pass along these words to the band members who performed at our wedding reception! We could have danced all night. 🙂
Very best,

Exceeded expectations! When wedding planning, you have enough to worry about. Researching and hiring the band should be easy and satisfying. Absolute Entertainment fulfilled, and exceeded, those wishes. The communication was superb, and Stacie, specifically, was top-notch with both professionalism, and her aim to please. We chose The Motion Band, and they were fantastic. From their demeanor, to their communication, to their pure joy to be performing on such a special day for us. As a musician, I wanted to play a song on drums with them (as a surprise), as well as shocking all in attendance by a (newly learned) bagpipe performance. They took that desire and ran with it. We choreographed a version of “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey, to where I came in with the bagpipes from the back entrance, playing the vocal melody. Never once did they act as though they were put out by all of this – but rather, embraced it. Although I will continue to get better on the pipes, their “stage presence” added so much to it that it appeared perfect! I could go on and on about how pleased we were with The Motion Band, and Absolute Entertainment as a whole, but I’ll simply leave you with a guarantee that you won’t be disappointed with either – but rather ecstatic at your decision. Thank you Stacie, Absolute Entertainment, and The Motion Band. You will always be a part of the memories of our special night!

The Motion Band was EXCELLENT! We found Motion via recommendations from friends who were guests at other weddings where they played. I had to put my foot down with my mom to hire them, she preferred a DJ for the variety of music they could play vs a band and after the wedding my mom agreed that the Motion Band was worth every penny. The reception was a blast, never a dull moment on the dance floor. My husband had an impromptu request for our reception exit, and with the bands large repertoire they were able to accommodate it no problem and was a huge crowd pleaser!

First of all you guys were GREAT! Thanks so much for putting on such a fun show. Everyone had such a great time at the reception and was asking,”where did you find this band, they’re awesome.” Morgan and Jackson had a blast on stage with y’all and y’all were great to to let the bride and groom be your BACKUP SINGERS!! Everyone thought that was so cool. Thanks again for your part of a fun evening.
