Reviews

We were extremely pleased with In The House. I spent a fair bit of time selecting a band for our wedding and was pumped when I found this group's great sound and awesome selections. Stephen was a pleasure to work with in advance and was able to accommodate all of our logistical needs. We used band members for classical guitar for the ceremony, an organ and guitar jazz duo for the cocktail hour, and a 7 piece ensemble for the reception. They were great at it all, and kept the dance floor rocking. Not cheesy at all, they were talented and professional with a swinging set list and great full sound. I'm pretty picky about music and have seen some pretty good wedding bands, but think we had the best in In The House, and heard many compliments from our guests.

Thank you
Tom and Sally

I am writing this letter of reference for the band In The House, not because I was asked to.... but because it is my pleasure. I had the most stress free experience dealing with the band and planning our wedding. Stephen was extremely pleasant and kind to work with. The band came up with the best set lists of songs that suited our personality, and were crowd pleasers for the young and old. Every song was done with such energy, and was performed so well.

The band In The House helped make our wedding day all that we anticipated, and so much more. Every person that attended the wedding remarked on them and their performance. I think they were an inspiration for all of my engaged friends planning weddings. When I think back on our wedding experience, I wouldn't change a thing! And the band helped make all of my childhood dreams come true.

Thanks so much In The House,
Mr. and Mrs. Michael Hillmann
