Tks Dan!

Dan Willer was great to deal with. We had a few other options in mind, so he let us know of a performance his band had booked in a bar, so we got to see them play live before hiring them! They were very well dressed and very professional too. Music kept everybody dancing all night long! Would refer to anyone having a wedding!

Fantastic!

We had Dan Willer play our ceremony, a violin&guitar duo at cocktail hour and than his full dance band for our reception.
It was great to be able to rely on one company for all three moments. Dan is very professional and trustworthy. We were not 100% sure what we wanted for the cocktail hour, so Dan helped us pick the right music to make our special day perfect.
What we did know was that we needed a very energetic dance band for the reception, and they made our guests and ourselves dance the night away! Everybody had so much fun! The singer was awesome!
Thanks Dan, we will definitely refer you to anyone looking for live music.

GREAT Wedding Band!

We hired the Dan Willer Band to play background music during our Wedding Reception dinner and as a full 5 piece band for our dance. We were so impressed! Their energy and professionalism made the night a huge success. The band learned our favourite requests and played them along with a great mix of Top 40 and classics.

Our guests danced the night away and had a fabulous time. I'd recommend Dan Willer to anyone considering a live band.

Wedding Violinist

We were recently married in Grimsby and used Dan Willer for our ceremony music. Dan was very helpful in our song selection as he provided us with song ideas that would work and also provided a description of the type of song that sounded best on a violin to help us in creating our playlist. Dan was also very quick to respond to questions and very professional. For our wedding we had Caroline perform. After arriving to our venue early she was kindly offered to start playing right away as guests had already arrived. She was very flexible and performed beautifully. She was a great addition to our day. I would recommend working with Dan Willer Music as we felt confident and comfortable in his service and were not disappointed.

Excellent band

We got nothing but great comments about Dan's band during our engagement party. The band was outstanding in every way. Their selection of music was very tasteful, and they were able to prepare and play some of our favourite songs during the party.

Aside from their musical talent, the band was very professional. They showed up close to two hours prior to the scheduled time and set up their equipment without any interruption to the event. They were all very well dressed, as well.

Thank you, again, for a great evening.

A Great Band

We were fortunate to learn of Dan Willer's band through my sister. On comparatively short notice Dan obliged us by bringing his band from Hamilton to Toronto to make our 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration a great success. I asked for the 50 - 60s music and not so loud that we couldn't hold a conversation. Dan complied to our delight. The band was much appreciated by the guests. We wish you every success!!!!!!
