Stellar Performance & Professionalism

What a wonderful experience it was to work with Love Peace and Happiness Band on Beth and Shannon's wedding this past weekend. Love Peace and Happiness made it so much fun for the entire wedding party and all the wedding guests. I mean there was not a moment the dance floor was empty. As a coordinator I have seen a number of bands but Love Peace and Happiness were just different , from the special dances and highlights to the all around great energy, it was really an amazing performance!From a professional standpoint the responsiveness in email communication leading up to the wedding as well as punctuality on the day of the wedding is a must have that I admire in working with other wedding professionals. These two qualities makes for a stress-free wedding day for the couple not having to worry with if their vendors will be on time but just focus on enjoying their wedding day. Thanks again for making Beth and Shannon's wedding day a beautiful memorable experience that they will never forget.

LPH Band was AMAZING!!!!!

We found this band using random internet search engine searches for Motown Bands near our wedding city. We were a little nervous choosing a band we had never seen in person, but boy are we glad we found them.

Firstly, Valitus (band contact) was so easy to communicate with- very prompt in all responses, very courteous. The band honored all of our requests (which were numerous) some of which include: Learning a completely new, out-of-their-normal genre first dance song, MC'ing the night whenever an event was set to take place (cutting the cake, bouquet toss, etc); they even cleared the dance floor at the end of the night so my bride and myself could have a last dance of the night together.

Before the wedding, one of our most important "wants" for the wedding was for all our friends and family to enjoy be on the dance floor the whole night. Our expectations were BLOWN AWAY on this. From ages 6-60 (and especially us mid-20 year-olds), not a single person left the dance floor until we had to be pulled off the dance floor at the end of the night. Some of our guests were literally asking for business cards from the band at the end of the night so they could use them for their own next reception.

I was so extremely impressed with this band. Besides actually getting married, this band was the highlight of our wedding. I would STRONGLY recommend this band to anyone wanting a band that is easy to work with and will keep your guests on the dance floor the whole night!!!

Love, Peace, and Happiness made our wedding amazing!

Everyone who attended said our band was the best they have ever heard! Seriously, this band made everyone dance and took our reception to the next level! Also, Val responded quickly to all my emails and calls. This band went above their call of duty by learning two songs for us and helped me select my father-daughter dance song. If you choose this band, you will receive five star customer service!!

Awesome!

Had so much fun dancing and listening to this group of musicians at a wedding tonight. They play all the old classics, they can really sing, and they interacted with the crowd extremely well. They have a big sound... but also do the slow, quieter songs beautifully. They are a ton of fun... and nice people, too, as I discovered chatting with them during breaks. :)

Love, Peace, and Happiness was the band for our wedding reception in Chattanooga. What a perfect, awesome band for our big day! They made everything so much fun! Everyone left our reception talking about how much fun they had. The band kept the party rolling, and rolling, and rolling! I couldn't have asked for a better band. They played such a variety of music and the fun never stopped. I wish we could do it again! I will definitely book Love, Peace, and Happiness for my next big event!

I want to thank you for another wonderful performance from Love, Peace, & Happiness at The Farm last Saturday night. You all were a hit! The members all complimented how fanastic the band was at our Valentine's party. It is always a pleasure having you here. I value your talent and professionalism. You will continue to be first on my list of recommendations. I look forward to seeing you again.

Hello Valitus,
Your band is the best. My wife Angela and I photograph hundreds of weddings and we see many live bands. You get everyone on the dance floor. You also get the bride and groom involved in the music and we love that. I am constantly looking for emotion and fun moments and your energy helps create some really fun receptions. Thanks again for all you do. We will look forward to working with you again.

Additional Booking Notes

Dear Friend:

Your special event needs to be fun, but it must also be done in good taste, with class, and with variety. Love, Peace & Happiness has the years of experience necessary to make your event flow at the perfect pace.

The pricing is based upon the band arriving 2 hours prior to the event and having access to the performance area for set-up and sound-check until 30 minutes before show-time.

The rate covers travel, lodging, lighting, sound system, equipment technicians, and musicians pay. The client will provide a pre-meal for the band, access to food and drinks, and a place to dress and take breaks.

The time period starts the moment the doors are opened for the event. A twenty-percent (20%) deposit and signed performance agreement will guarantee the date for you and the band will turn down all other offers for your date, no matter what.

Our band books as far as 12-14 months in advance so we have to book by first-come-first-served basis. We honor the first deposit check and signed performance agreement we receive for a particular date and time-slot. The balance is due the day of the performance.

All special requested songs, that are not on our song list, must be communicated to us a minimum of 30 days before the event.

We take pride in our work, value our professional reputation, and will discuss your song requests, ideas, concerns and questions in order to make your event a complete success.

Aloha Mr. Edwards,

I am a teacher at Kaahumanu Elementary School in Honolulu, Hawaii. I found an article about your test motivation song, "We Won't Stop (Until We Get to the Top)" online and was wondering if I would still be able to order this song on CD.

Our school is looking towards creating a test-ready campaign to get our students motivated about the test and by the description in the article, it sounded like your song would be a great motivator!

I hope that this song is still in production. If so, please let me know how I can order it.
Thank you.

Testimonials

Love, Peace, and Happiness was the band for our wedding reception in Chattanooga. What a perfect, awesome band for our big day! They made everything so much fun! Everyone left our reception talking about how much fun they had. The band kept the party rolling, and rolling, and rolling! I couldn't have asked for a better band. They played such a variety of music and the fun never stopped. I wish we could do it again! I will definitely book Love, Peace, and Happiness for my next big event!

– Beth Flanagan Webb

We are still getting over yesterday and last night...Our daughter's wedding was beautiful and the reception was such fun! I had to write and thank you for helping to make the reception a huge success! We had so many guests ask us who the band was and how we found you! You sounded absolutely wonderful and we loved that you included the bride, groom and their friends in all the fun!

Thanks, again!!!!

You guys played my cousin's wedding at the Dalton Country Club in Dalton, GA a few years ago and were great!! She gave me your information and I'm interested in getting a quote for you to play mine. It's being held at the Beach Club in Gulf Shores, AL because I wanted a beach wedding so we're traveling. The reception is in the clubhouse on the veranda so no sand for y'all. I'm on a budget like everyone else right now and I'm not sure I'll be able to afford your fee + travel but please let me know how much it would be. You guys are so much fun and I'd love to work something out.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Valitus,

Your band is the best. My wife Angela and I photograph hundreds of weddings and we see many live bands. You get everyone on the dance floor. You also get the bride and groom involved in the music and we love that. I am constantly looking for emotion and fun moments and your energy helps create some really fun receptions. Thanks again for all you do. We will look forward to working with you again.

Dear Love, Peace & Happiness,

Thank you so much for making our reception a blast! We got more compliments about you all than anything else at the reception, and I thought it was all pretty terrific! We saw guests from ages 1 to 70+ on the dance floor. Nick had told all of the guests from Iowa how great you all were, and it exceeded everyone's expectations. It was definitely worth the trip for them to see you!


Thank you so much!
