Here is a little bit of how we handle wedding receptions: We vary our music selections greatly depending on what people want. While we make out music lists for each show, we often deviate from it. We pay close attention to the crowd and adjust our songs to match what we think they want to hear (slow dance, two step, upbeat, etc.) We also try to fill any requests that the guests may have. The songs listed on our site are all songs we have performed at one time or another, but there are many songs not included. We've often added new songs for a particular wedding or event that we don't normally play (and may not ever perform again.) We have performed everything from blues and rockabilly to Texas and top 40 country, pop, and rock music. If you have particular songs that you're interested in, let me know and we'll make every effort to include them. Songs that we can't include as a live band are often added as DJ music between sets. We gig as DJ's and have an extensive library of dance and hip hop songs and crowd favorites (the Cupid Shuffle comes to mind.) We're happy to try to add extra songs to the band sets if we feel it's something we can perform well and we have enough notice to work the material up to performance level (we prefer at least 3-4 weeks, but have worked with less.) By the way we often perform as an acoustic act for ceremony or dinner music during your event.

We are back from Hawaii and I wanted to thank you and your band for giving us such a great party! We have had so many compliments on the music and you did a great job of reading the crowd and playing to them. My husband and a couple of other guests almost never dance and you had them tearing it up on the dance floor! I will definitely pass your name along and I'd be happy to be a reference for you in the future. Thanks again.. Elizabeth S. - Dallas, TX.
Wow! What a fantastic wedding we had this past weekend! Thank you so much for being so great and easy to work with - ya'll made the party fun! I hope we have a chance to work with you again in the future. Abbie and Katie - Todd Events, Dallas, TX.
Hackberry Road played for our wedding this past weekend! They were absolutely amazing!!! There was someone on the dance floor from the first song to the very last. Everyone came up to my husband and me all night long, and said how awesome they are and asked where we found them...I referred them to Gig Masters of course! Hackberry Road helped to make our special day that much more special and we would recommend them to anyone. They played a variety of songs from rock and blues all the way to Texas Country, which was exactly what we were looking for in a band. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a good band and a good time! -Ben C, Satin, TX
We had nothing but good things to say about the Hackberry Road Band. they worked with us on every part of our wedding. We asked them to learn special songs and they did it without a hitch. A very Professional band when it came to taking care of our Wedding needs. They setup early and were willing to stay as long as we needed them. Everyone at the wedding was asking about who they were and how we found them. We would refer them to anyone who wants a band. A -- John R, Pilot Point, TX,
This is an amazing band. They are extremely professional and so talented. They played for the ceremony, during dinner and the reception. I have gotten nothing but compliments from everyone who attended the wedding about how wonderful the band was! Their rates are above reasonable, they are true musicians and go above and beyond to make the event special and worry free. I would recommend this band to anyone who is looking for musicians for any event of any size whether casual or formal! Thank you so much for being a part of making my wedding picture perfect! -- Alison W, Dallas, TX,
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! What a great time! Everyone at the wedding thought you guys made the evening. Three guys rockin'. It doesn't get much better than that. Thanks for being so accomodating to our group and letting me set in with you on a couple songs too. Keep rockin'. -- Dennis C, Grapevine, TX, 5/30/2010

David Truesdell Sales and Sponsor Manager American Numisamtic Association -- David T, Fort Worth, TX, 3/24/2010
An excellent band with incredible talent — extremely professional and fun. I book bands from all over the country every year for our annual conference and Hackberry Road is simply the best! It is amazing the big sound that comes out of just 3 guys. They are just too good for words. They know how to read a crowd and adjust their level and song selections to perfectly match the mood. If I can bring them to another conference, I will do so. They rocked it! -- Shari L, Dallas, TX, 10/21/2009
