This group of musicians!! When they say they pride themselves in reading a group of people and desire to make your event a success, THEY ARE TELLING THE TRUTH!!! In our eyes having a successful party means everyone is up dancing! Even the stodgy doctor that feels too old!! The Lucky Devils did it!! BOOK THEM!!! You will never regret it!!
I never write reviews but honestly Lucky Devils Band was SO spectacular that I felt compelled to log on and write something!! They really truly outdid themselves and contributed to making our wedding celebration such a special, fun and enjoyable day- we seriously wish the day continued on we were having such a great time. All of the band members were so talented and really gave 100% to make sure everyone was having a good time, our guests were raving about the band and we were so elated they were part of our day : )
Can't recommend them highly enough!! I was told about this band by a friend, but at first we couldn't find them on the web. I think they don't advertise very well.
Anyway, then I saw them again at my friend's wedding last year and they were really AMAZING!! They played like, mostly Frank Sinatra at first, and then current stuff later on, then the lead singer DJed for the last hour. Seriously the best wedding band I've seen - everyone was loving it! I asked them for a card, and went to see them again in Hollywood at their "showcase" night, and they were even better.
They are pretty young - in their mid-late 20s, but they just seemed to have so much more fun than any other bands I saw. They seemed to play way cooler songs than the other bands, and they just GET the whole thing. It really made it feel like a party. They had the whole room up and dancing the WHOLE night.
They were probably the easiest contractor we dealt with for our wedding- even more than our venue, which was also great. Very organised and responsive. We've never booked a band for anything before, but they handled everything for us.
I'm recommending them to everyone!
If you choose these guys, you will not be disappointed! From day one, they were very attentive to our needs and wants. You have so many choices, from the amount of people you could have, to types of music etc. The price was amazing, we definitely got Way more for our money. The band was amazing, and full of energy from beginning to end. We will be using Lucky Devils Band in the near future!
We ordered the whole package from Lucky Devils. They played stringed instruments during the ceremony, played the piano and a sax during the cocktail hour, and then played the reception. We got the 7 piece band, including two horns and two vocalists. The staff could not have been more professional. The quality of the music could not have been better. Considering the fact that I bid out the music to four different bands, for the price I paid, the value was incredible. I could not recommend them more.
The Lucky Devils are absolutely incredible and made our wedding a blast! They are an extremely talented band who were able to get the dancing started early and last the entire night. Throughout the entire process Jerry was professional and easy to work with. They even catered to our request of having our first dance song to play live which sounded perfect! We had Heather MC for the reception and she was beyond amazing, making the night run smoothly and everything felt so personal. It was such a memorable end to an already wonderful night. If you're looking for a super fun, energetic, party-starting band, book the Lucky Devils! I cannot praise them enough and am so grateful for their talent and hard work.
Great music. Good, careful planning for a successful event. The online account facilitation’s excellent communication and planning. You enter your playlist and the anything the band can’t perform from your list will be pre-recorded and play during the breaks. This is a great service.
The Lucky Devils Band was exactly what we were looking for when planning our corporate event. The band started out playing jazz music to accompany our networking/ cocktail hour. After the light mingling was winding down and the finger foods had been consumed The Lucky Devils turned it up a notch and truly read the crowd, they played covers from different genres and blew the crowd away everyone was dancing and singing along! The planning process was extremely easy and straight forward Aaron made sure we were well taken care of and every random question we had was answered promptly. We could not have asked for a better band from planning to quality of band members, they made our event!!
I have worked with several bands in the past while planning events. I found Lucky Devils Band to be one of the easiest to work with during the entire process from contract to night of the event.
They know how to read a crowd and keep the dance floor going! I heard nothing but wonderful comments about the night and the band. Thank you for helping us ring in 30 years in business! I would highly recommend you to any size group!
These guys absolutely killed it at our wedding, even better than expected. They're quite reasonable and there's nothing like a live band for getting people up and dancing. We had a seven piece band with sax and trumpet and it was truly a perfect evening. They even let me jump up and sing with them. Highly recommend them!
Very professional. Great communication with the person in charge of the event. Love the way they will send you reminders on how to make our event a success and how they care on making our event a great success by listening and creating a great agenda for us. They were in character with the theme of the party (old Hollywood). They work well with our other performers. I will highly recommend them.
It doesn't get any better than Lucky Devils Band. If they are still available for your event date, book them. You will not be disappointed. Every song they played was a hit - they kept our wedding guests on the dance floor all night. Thank you so much Lucky Devils! Our guests are still raving about you!
These guys were great. Very helpful and flexible during the planning process. Made sure we got the most value possible. Went with a 7-piece band to include a sax. It was well worth it. Sax was amazing. Singers were awesome.
We used the Lucky Devils Band for a fundraising event and they were awesome! Mike was great and made arranging the night easy. The band showed up with plenty of time to set up, they were very organized, and ready to play when it was curtain time. Incredible musicians and beautiful voices! The music choices were perfect and had guests dancing during salad service! We are definitely using them again next year. Lucky Devils Band will make your event one to remember.
Gabriela was an excellent performer. The City of Cupertino had an event in the park for our Wednesday Concert Series and she rocked the park. Had many people dancing and singing the songs along with her while she roamed the area with a wireless mic. Highly recommend the band Lucky Devils.
Lucky Devils were one of the best and easiest choices when it came to planning our wedding. Mike was SO easy to work with from day one, always quick to respond to any questions, and made the whole booking/planning process simple and painless. We only had a 3-piece band, but they still managed to keep everyone dancing and having a great time all night! They even let our friend come up and take the mic for a few songs :) Would highly recommend Lucky Devils to anyone looking for great live music!
The Lucky Devils made our reception a huge success! Gabriella and Brian were incredibly punctual and helpful throughout the planning process. The band was amazing! They had excellent song choice that fit perfectly with our preferences. The singers and musicians were absolutely amazing, and Erin did a phenomenal job as our MC. We got so many compliments from our guests about the band. We also used Lucky Devils for our ceremony and cocktail hour music as well, which was amazing. I can't say enough great things about my experience with them.
The Lucky Devils Band was one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding! A live band was a must for us, and finding a good one was was even more important! Live bands can completely make or break and wedding and the Lucky Devils made ours incredible. They are SO talented and will have your guests dancing all night long! We also had Michael emcee and he was also amazing! Highly recommended!
The Lucky Devils were AMAZING. Aaron was very professional from the moment we hired him to the day of the wedding. He called us regularly and even met us in person before the wedding to go over final details. We had some out-of-the-box ideas of the music we wanted for cocktail hour, and Aaron worked with us to make our dreams a reality. The day of our wedding our music was phenomenal. The Lucky Devils were so fun and the next day our guests couldn't stop talking about how amazing they were. They had all of our guests up and dancing ALL night. If you're looking for a wedding band - look no further: the Lucky Devils will not disappoint
Jefferson knows what he is doing, a great musician bring great music and vibes to every event he works on.
We have worked with Jefferson in the past and we also enjoy working with him and the Lucky Devils to help bring an amazing show. We recommend him for weddings!
Could not have gotten more compliments on the band, and the dance floor was full the entire night!! Recommend paying with debit to avoid a credit card fee.
We live in Los Angeles and the event was in Napa so we wanted to find a band that resided in N. CA. I flew up to San Francisco for an event to see Lucky Devils in person and was very impressed with the caliber of the musicians. I met Jefferson at that time & new right away that he would be a great master of ceremonies and leader of the band. Jefferson and the band exceeded our expectations on every level. We had 130 people at the wedding who danced all night and everyone raved about how good the band was. I can't say enough about our experience with Lucky Devils. They were simply amazing
We honestly don’t even know where to begin here. As we prepared for our wedding, we either wanted a great band or a good DJ, and so the search began. Pricing took some candidates out and others didn’t hit the quality we were looking for. Then we came across the Lucky Devils Band and we immediately knew we were onto something.
We worked with Michael (who is an amazing coordinator and even better person) for some initial questions and then went to Neck of the Woods to watch their showcase (they do this monthly in San Francisco - go check out the free show!). We were sold immediately. The performance was amazing and covered the entire music spectrum, which was extremely impressive. We decided to sign them as a 7-piece band right away for our wedding date. The process was extremely easy, and you’re given an online band page to fill out the information you need and any notes you’d like to add in there. The whole process, from first communication to final pre-wedding chat was easy, relaxed and, most importantly, fun. We can’t speak highly enough about how polished their process is - it’s clear that they’ve done this before.
The band was nothing short of perfect on our wedding day. We simply guided the music selection with what genres we wanted and didn’t want, and they took on the rest. Gabriela was one of our lead vocals and also our MC. It was flawless. They rolled with the punches with us, never pressured or stressed, and made sure every step of the day was executed perfectly. They rocked out and our guests couldn’t keep off of the dance floor, and they happily played to the crowd the whole time. We can’t emphasize enough how amazing the music was, but also how amazing the MCing and coordination were. Our day wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was without them. They are true professionals and do it all with joy.
Check out their website for times they’re playing (monthly in SF) and get yourself to a show. You won’t regret it. And you’ll probably see us there.
We planned our wedding date around Jefferson and The Lucky Devils Band being able to play at our event (no matter how crazy this sounds…it’s so true). We heard Jefferson sing at another event about a year and half earlier and as soon as we got engaged we knew exactly who we wanted for our special day. The 9 piece live band we hired made the event a true success – from the horns, to the piano player during cocktail hour and everything in between. The perfect sound and lively spirit of the band kept everyone on the dance floor and the wedding vibe alive. There was humor and personality brought to life through the music – exactly what we wanted to keep the energy up. All of the pre-event communication was so well organized and every detail was addressed. We had monthly calls with Jefferson leading up the event to make sure everything was on track and any outstanding action items were addressed. He listed to our music needs and surpassed our expectations. Everything from the processional to the last long of the evening was well throughout and created a custom flow for our amazing day.
The Lucky Devils were fantastic - they did an excellent job at continuing the party into the night. I have been to a number of weddings where the band have not been able to engage with the audience - the Lucky Devils are not one of these bands - I don't think I ever saw the dance floor empty!!!
Both in the run up to the wedding and on the day itself the band were excellent at keeping in touch and making the organisation very easy.
Lucky Devils was one of the easiest vendors we worked with during our wedding planning. The process with them is a dream. They have showcases in the city every few months so we got to see them play and meet some of the band members. That night we were SOLD. They were seriously incredible. The bands range blew me away! We went with an eight piece band and after the wedding I have no regrets spending a little bit more than we'd planned for. Our guests danced the entire night and still talk about how great the band was. It as so much fun to watch them perform. Gabby MC'ed and was perfection. They even let my brother in law, who studies percussion at Yale, play a song with them which was the highlight of his night! They have detailed contracts and documents explaining everything you'd need to know about booking a band. Their band planning page was GREAT and allowed us to keep all of our notes about what we wanted out of a band in one place. I would book them again in a heartbeat and recommend them to all my couples getting married on the west coast. Thank YOU guys so much for helping make my day unforgettable.
As an event coordinator, I work with a number of bands. I love working with bands because of the unique element it adds to any events. However, some can be rather challenging to coordinate with. The Lucky Devils were amazing!! So easy to work with, fluid, understanding, and true team players. On my end, the logistics of setup / breakdown / and following the timeline are critical. From my clients end, having their dance floor packed is their ultimate goal. Well, Lucky Devils succeeded in all elements. They have my highest referral and I cannot wait to use them again! Thank you LDB!
Lucky Devils Band played our wedding on July 1st and we couldn't have been happier! During the booking/planning stages, we worked with Jefferson (he's the BEST!) and he helped us put together the band of our dreams. Lucky Devils provided us with a sound engineer for the ceremony, string quartet for cocktail hour, MC, and a 10 piece band for our party. Everyone at the wedding said that the band was incredible and they kept everyone on the dance floor all night! Thank you for being a part of our special day!
This band was all that and more.
1) The band was super responsive before even booking to help us figure out our needs.
2) The planning portal online is KEY. You get to fill out everything for your event and use a section for likes/dislikes which the band really adheres to.
3) Week of they very reaching out like crazy to make sure all final details were good to go. They even did a site visit to make sure things went smoothly.
4) THEY ROCKED. Not one person in our wedding was disappointed. Us especially. There were some small timing hiccups and other minor work outs, but the MC was spot on and the band was killer.
I feel like I can only use them for every event ever after the job they did at our wedding!
I can't say enough great things about Lucky Devils Band! I was on the fence about whether it was worth it to get a band, but my fiancé really wanted one. after we went to their showcase, I was sold! Kevin made the whole planning very easy. He responded quickly to emails and our phone conference with him was great- he gave us ideas and suggestions when we asked and was more than accommodating for anything unusual we asked for. I have no idea how things went for the band to get there and set up, so I'm assuming it went smoothly because they were already set up and playing when I showed up. Mariela was our main singer and out MC and she was fabulous from start to finish. She came out and met my bridal party before announcing them and kept the energy up and the schedule for the night moving. I got SO many compliment on the band and everyone said it was the best party they had been to! Cost for value was not matched in any other band we looked at. I would definitely recommend them to any of my friends!
I had the pleasure of having the Lucky Devils perform at my wedding on April 8th 2017. I went with a 4-person band for the reception and they MC'd for me too. The communication leading up to the event was perfect. They gave me just the right amount of guidance and information without bombarding me with decisions. The night of was perfect. They sounded great! For 4 people, it was a big sound, just perfect. They are so talented, they played everything from ZZ top to Bruno mars to Miley cyrus to Creedence Clearwater! They can definitely do it all. My dad even put them on the spot for a request and they nailed it! I had several people at my wedding compliment the band and tell me how great they were, even my brother who himself is a musician so he is harder to please! Nothing beats a live band at a wedding, I wouldn't change a thing and I would recommend the Lucky Devils to anyone for any event!
The Lucky Devils were a highlight in a weekend full of highlights. From the acoustic set before the ceremony to the dance floor rock they brought for hours at the reception- the The Lucky Devils were professional to deal with in the months leading up to the event and every bit 'musician' on the day/night of the wedding! THANK YOU!
We recently had Lucky Devils play at our Wedding and we can’t begin to recommend them enough. Our guests are still raving about the music!
We did not want ‘the same old wedding band’ and Lucky Devils delivered. We had a six piece band including two singers, drums, guitar, keyboard, and saxophone. They played three hour-long sets. They started with music that was geared more towards our parents’ generation but played music that got everyone on the dance floor right away. Over the course of the night, the music transitioned into more contemporary songs. They were able to play a great range of music from Rolling Stones and Stevie Wonder to Justin Timberlake, Prince and Pitbull. Everything they played sounded amazing. They did a great job reading the crowd and keeping everyone engaged with the music.
We first went to listen to Lucky Devils play a showcase in San Francisco and took note of our favorite band members. They made it very easy to work with them by providing an online form that allowed us to enter our favorite and least favorite songs and all event logistics. A couple weeks before the event we had a phone call with Jefferson. He was very easy to work with and understood our goals.
Jefferson provided the MC service and did an amazing job. He did not try to be the center of the event but he did a great job making introductions, including pronouncing some difficult names correctly! A couple of months before the wedding, we provided the band with a unique Beatles cover song for our first dance and they were able to learn it and did a great job with it.
Our wedding was in an unconventional warehouse-type space, which presented some technical challenges. The band was able to address some technical difficulties cause by our venue without any of our guests noticing. The Lucky Devils are as professional as they are extremely fun!!
A few weeks after our wedding, my mom is hoping to find a Lucky Devils show she can attend because she loved the music so much, and our friends all want to hire them for their weddings.
If you want a professional, energetic, and great sounding band that will keep your guests dancing through the night, The Lucky Devils is the band for you.
I can't even remember how I happened upon the Lucky Devils Band, but as I sit here writing this about a month after our NYE wedding, I can't imagine having had anyone BUT them play the day. I'd gone to see them at a showcase in San Francisco, which I highly recommend doing if you're on the fence or even "band shopping." It's a great way to test the product and in the case of the Lucky Devils, their showcase was like a concert -- and in my case, it completely cemented that this was one of the best event bands I'd ever seen. I literally hired them that evening. It was one of the earliest decisions I made in the planning process (right after venue selection), and it was easily one of the best. I'd already been interacting over email with their manager, Jefferson, so I also knew that they were very professionally run, which also meant a lot to me. They'd also sent over a terrific demo CD (for free), which also had a very pro look and feel -- again, these things matter when you're talking about forking over several thousand dollars in a deposit to someone you may or may not ever meet in person. Anyway, all of this is to say that Jefferson/the band's responsiveness, handle on pre-wedding day logistics, and professionalism was a huge bonus to what I knew would be true: the day-of music kicked ASS.
I actually hired the Devils to provide the music at all three "junctures" of the wedding: the ceremony, where I had a keyboard and violinist; the cocktail hour, where I had a jazz trio; and the wedding reception itself, where I had an eight-piece band. The musicians for each component of the wedding were absolutely top-notch. One thing to know is that the total band is large - it's more like a band version of a theater company than a band, in the sense that the people you see at the showcase may not play your event. But rest assured that whoever does will know their way around their instrument. The band that played my event was wildly talented and a lot of fun. I can't say enough about the quality of the music and their ability to keep people dancing on what was a long (but really fun) night!
Finally, I'd be remiss not to note how accommodating the band was in incorporating live versions of songs that meant a lot to us as a couple. I had specific ceremony music requests, which were beautifully rendered, and we had the band play our first dance song (which they learned, and executed to perfection). The band went above and beyond to make our day as incredible as it was, and anyone who can should hire them. They're the best!
This band was great, from the management to the musicians and singer. Nice people to work with, reasonable pricing. The performers werenice folks, polite and very professional. They played well, and our guests had a great time. I would definitely use this band again, and recommend the band without hesitation.
We cannot stress enough how amazing the Lucky Devils Band was at our Wedding October 30th. Jefferson, singer and manager was an absolute dream to work with. He just got it. And he was an excellent MC for the event. He made setting up what we needed easy and was a pleasure. The band has many members so the mood and feeling of what you want is curated to you particularly. My husband and I were lucky enough to go to a wedding 3 weeks before ours that also had the Lucky Devils playing and they were awesome! When they played at our wedding, they were just as awesome and perfect for the feeling and energy of the venue. I kept saying "Why wouldn't everyone hire them!" I found them after working my way through many bands and went with my gut. We spoke to Jefferson and his energy and focus made us know this was the band for us. We also heard them at a local venue and they were so versatile and powerful. Loved! Thank you to Jefferson and the Lucky Devils for being such a huge part of our beautiful wedding day.
Great value for the money. We got a great 6-piece band. Our singers were high energy, fantastic, friendly and professional. Got a lot of compliments from the guests about the band choice. They were also great in that the improvised when the power failed and they coulnd't use keyboard. Improv'd with acoustic guitar the exact music we were hoping for. Very impressive. They were also good emcees for us. Overall highly recommended. The service and communication throughout was really good. Really one of the highlights of our wedding. We hired a 6-piece band, which would recommend if in your budget, as having full instruments, including brass, and an extra vocalist were nice.
The band was truly awesome. Exceeded all expectations! Lively, talented, and a complete blast. They nailed it! Thank You to Lucky Devils Band for helping us make our wedding so special.
I wish I could give them 10 stars. My guests all RAVED about the band, they absolutely LOVED it ... and so did I! I knew I wanted a band and not a DJ for my wedding, and I knew I wanted a horn section. I heard them play at the Tin Roof in San Diego and I knew I had to have Lucky Devils for my band and I'm so glad I hired them. The musicians are superb, the vocals were amazing, they did a great job on the song selections, and they got EVERYONE out on the dance floor ... literally people I have never seen them dance EVER were out dancing which is exactly what I wanted. This band is amazing, I cannot endorse them enough and if I ever have another opportunity to hire them for an event I will do it in a heartbeat!
We were so fortunate to have The Lucky Devils Band play at our wedding. It was definitely one of the highlights of our night and they were truly incredible....especially our MC. They did an exceptional job and made the night an amazing party!
We went big for our wedding - 9 pieces (Drums, Bass, Guitar, Keys, Male and Female Vocals, Trumpet, Sax, and Trombone). The Lucky Devils were a great value, and delivered a fantastic performance. Kevin spent hours with us making sure the band understood our tastes in music, what we wanted to hear, and what we did not want to hear. Fantastic experience at a great price.
Best band ever! The Lucky Devils were so fantastic, from the very first moment of communicating with them to the end of the event, we couldn't have asked for a better band. They were having as much fun onstage as we were on the dance floor. We had the best wedding ever thanks to them.
We really loved having Lucky Devils Band play at our wedding. The strings for the ceremony were perfect, so many people commented on how great they sounded. The musicians during cocktail hour were exactly what we hoped for. Last but not least, the complete band during the reception were awesome! They truly kept the party going and everyone had an amazing time. We are so happy with how everything turned out!
We really enjoyed working with all of you. Thank you so much!

The Lucky Devils band are one in a million. From the word "go", my interactions and communications with the band (via band leader Jefferson) were exceptional--and far beyond what I received from other bands I contacted in researching for our wedding. He was responsive, thorough, friendly, and genuinely excited to help us find the best match for our event.
The informational/sample music packet they sent was amazing and really showcased the level of variety you can expect from The Lucky Devils. Everything from pop dance hits, to cultural specifics (think Hava Nagila), to crooner classics, to soul/R&B and classic rock: The Lucky Devils truly do it all! Jefferson will also work with you to learn your tastes and preferences in order to develop a playlist and style that best suits your event. Perhaps best of all (aside from the incredible value you receive for the price) is the customizable format of the band. Want a casual jazz trio? Done. Full 10-piece band with horns. No problem!
Night-of was no different. The band arrived, checked in with us and started setting up with excellent communication throughout the evening regarding set times, announcements, music choices, etc. The party was an absolute blast thanks to the incredible musicians on stage, and we left our wedding with The Lucky Devils surpassing any and all expectations. All of our guests, from Grandma to Groomsmen, LOVED the band, and even the catering staff and venue coordinator all commented on how it was one of, if not THE, best wedding band they had seen--and they see a lot! As someone who works with touring bands in a venue setting professionally, I can say with full confidence that Jefferson and The Lucky Devils are one of the best, most affordable, most communicative, most flexible, and down-to-earth, and downright FUN bands out there. Look no further: you've found your wedding band!
Lucky Devils Band are hands down the only band I would ever consider recommending. From their organization, preparation and planning (Jefferson), to their performance at our reception (Geechi, you were amazing! The whole band was phenomenal!), Lucky Devils was a class act and brilliant performers, with the best professionalism and follow-through. I wanted a great singer/vocalist, with the range to sing jazzy Sinatra and then flip to upbeat John Legend, but could also hit Ray LaMontagne, too. Do you know what I mean? I wanted a real cool cat. And Geechi was the man. He delivered a home run! And what WOULD and COULD have been terrible, was if they were a great sounding band, but couldn't deal with the technical stuff of working with the venue restrictions, etc. But INSTEAD, they have a true gentlemen and professional organizing everything behind the scenes! Jefferson worked with my music taste and demands wonderfully, integrated with our planner and our venue coordinator, and made sure his team on the ground nailed the delivery. And that's exactly what happened with Geechi. Just perfectly delivered...Everyone kept saying how awesome they were and that "this is the funnest wedding" they'd ever attending. How cool is that?! Perfect compliment for our selection of Lucky Devils, in my opinion. There's really not more I can say. There is likely not a better, more professional and amazing sounding live band. I CAN NOT SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS about them...So, if you THINK they could be a good fit, let me finalize your selection process...give them a shot. They will not disappoint.
I cannot thank you and your bandmates enough. You MADE the party. It was the first time in the history of our events that everyone got out on the dance floor! The band was incredible - they read the room brilliantly and created a highly memorable experience for us. I will be recommending you to anyone I know who is looking for musical entertainment at their event.
From the pre-event planning to the post event follow up, you guys are phenomenal to work with. I am still in disbelief that musicians can be so organized and responsive...that is not the norm!! ;) Thank you again for everything.
Lucky Devils Band was PERFECT! I wanted a great dance band for my daughter's wedding and they blew everyone away. From the ceremony music, cocktail hour music, dinner music, and then dance music, I could not have asked for a more perfect performance. Working with the Lucky Devils was so easy. Hire this band now. You won't regret it.
My husband and I hired the San Diego Lucky Devil's Band for our wedding in March. We knew the band was one of the most important aspects of our wedding and spent months searching for the perfect group. After watching video after video of boring traditional wedding bands we discovered the Lucky Devil's Band.
We immediately knew they were the perfect combination of that modern, soulful, exciting Band we had been searching for. I HIGHLY recommend asking them to send you a demo CD. They have a lot of clips to listen to on their website but their demo CD really gives a better understanding of who they are (full songs, not just clips). If you are still unsure they have monthly free showcases where you can check them out live. We booked them before seeing them live (because we live in Arizona) but to no surprise were extremely blown away by their live showcase one we did get out to SD to see them before the wedding.
Like I mentioned it was a little scary booking a band out of state but Kevin could not have made the process any smoother for us. We had several hour long phone calls to discuss everything: What music we liked, what we didn't, our vision for the day, specific songs we wanted them to learn, the vibe we were going for. They typed it all up and provided a timeline for the day of. They even learned a brand new song we requested for our first dance the week before the wedding and absolutely killed it the night of!
Every individual in their group is extremely talented and they could charge WAY more money then they do. Our wedding could not have been any more magical and a huge part of that is because of the Lucky Devils Band. We hired a trio for our outdoor cocktail hour and a five piece for the reception. They also did the MC service for us. We made it clear from the beginning that our wedding was going to be a younger group who like to dance and party. The Lucky Devil's Band had EVERYONE and I mean everyone up dancing all night long! By the end of the night we were all jumping around laughing, being silly, letting loose and most importantly celebrating our marriage the best way possible.
Hopefully my review has convinced you to book them. I promise you no one will do more Band research then my husband and I did and you WILL NOT find a better band in this price range (or even higher) anywhere. Hands down best wedding vendor decision we made.
Thank you Lucky Devil's Band for keeping Club DuFour Rocking all night long. We had the best time of our lives!!!!!!!!!!

The Lucky Devils were key to all the fun at our wedding and we couldn't thank them enough. We got so many compliments from guests for the cocktail hour set and especially for the evening set. They played the best songs and all of ones we requested and kept the crowd going. We can't compliment them all enough for your hard work and energy. Our guests are the partying types, but it was brought to another level with the band.
I’ll begin my review by being completely honest. My then fiancé and I wanted a band, but we just didn’t have the budget for the prices we were getting from entertainment companies in the area. We even went so far as to book a DJ, until I started doing a little more “just-in-case” research and found the 5-star reviews of the Lucky Devils Band. I inquired about pricing, and to my complete and utter shock, they emailed back a simple-yet-detailed quote with all of the information I could ever need to make a decision. They were in our budget! The band manager sent over a demo CD and invited us to come see them at one of their live showcases, which is how you know they are good. They take complete pride in their sound.
Once we booked, they had everything down to a science which was perfect, as I was planning from across the world. I maybe had to send three emails before wedding day? When I did send a question or outlandish request, they responded immediately. They had an online system to efficiently record all of our requests and other information, which was incredible because I could continuously update it as soon as something would pop in my head. I also really appreciated their honesty throughout the planning process. They even helped me decide how many and which instruments to book based on my budget and song selection. A few weeks before the event, I had a call with the incredible Jefferson to check-in and verbally run through everything, and we were good to go. Easy peasy!
I cannot even begin to explain to you how amazing this group of people was when they performed. We had them booked for ceremony string music, a jazz trio for cocktail hour, and a 6-piece band for the reception, and every moment they played was ELECTRIC. You can tell that each and every musician is unique, talented, and passionate about their work. The song choice throughout the evening was exactly what we had envisioned, as they struck the perfect balance between playing the popular, always-a-hit weddings songs with the weird songs we requested (who in heck knows “Rocky Top” outside of the state of Tennessee?). In addition to the music, they were just a ball of energy – interacting with guests and keeping almost every guest on the dance floor (which was my bridal dream)! Every single person at the wedding couldn’t stop raving about how unbelievable they were, and now I’m just trying to find another excuse to go back out to California to hear them play again. Thank you, Lucky Devils Band, for making my wedding day the most outstanding party!

The band is great and everything exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend!
Sending a BIG THANK YOU for all of your work on our wedding. The band was FANTASTIC!!! Super professional, very approachable, they looked great and sounded amazing. The versions of all of the songs requested were super awesome. We really appreciate everything you did to make our day so special.
The Lucky Devils Band was THE highlight of our two-day event. Hiring and planning with their manager, Aaron, could not have been easier. He promptly answered all questions we had and was very easy going. The first night we had a jazz trio and the second night we had a 5-piece party band, including a singer. Both assembles were amazing! The were completely self-sufficient which was a huge help since we had a lot of other vendors/entertainment to deal with. I would definitely hire them again!
The band and DJ were amazing. We had 1 piece for cocktail hour and 5 piece + DJ for reception. The music never stopped with this combination. Guests never left the dance floor and it was one big PARTY thanks to lucky devils !
The Lucky Devils Band was amazing!!! They were seriously the highlight of our wedding reception! They are creative, energetic, and beyond talented! They listened to everything we wanted and put in more time than we could have imagined! Our vision was complicated, and we were honestly nervous, but there was not one ounce of disappointment from this group!!! 100 stars!! Hire them now!
I'm a professional musician and so was very critical with my choice of band because I knew guests would be expecting a lot. The Lucky Devils were flawless.
Their performance was great, but they went far beyond just performing. They accommodated wedding changes without batting an eyelid. They had to move a bit, no complaints, the timings went awry (as they are likely to do at a wedding!) no complaints. Their announcements were spot on and they were always smiling and interacting with guests on their breaks.
I couldn't have asked for a better group and highly recommend them to anyone wanting a live band at their wedding.
The Lucky Devils are talented, professional, adaptable, and very easy to work with both in preparation for the event, as well as the event itself. I would recommend them and have already booked them again myself.
Lucky Devils performed at our wedding on July 20 at Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Los Angeles. They were, in short, amazing. We had a small group of them perform at the Ceremony, then the 7 piece band at the Reception. Our guests are still talking about how great they are. They were professional, very talented, and kept our guests on the dance floor. Perfect.
I absolutely would use them again and again. They are top notch and very professional. Everywhere I go, one week after our 25th Annniversary Celebration everyone is asking where I found them and how great they were. I will say that all great parties come out of what the band brings to them. All of my guests loved them, they kept my crowd dancing all night long. The Lucky Devils are a Fantastic Band! Thanks for making our party so fabulous!
Lucky Devils Band was amazing! I am so happy they performed at my company holiday party. They are very accommodating to people of all ages and are very upbeat! I promise you will be on the dance floor by the end of the night
My Fiancee and I heard about the Lucky Devils from a friend who lives in NYC as she knew one of the musicians in the band. We went to see a showcase a few months ago and booked them immediately when it finished. Their talent is unreal. Everyone at the showcase was ecstatic and when they performed at our wedding last week, the joy amongst our family and friends was 10 times what we remembered from the showcase. We dealt with Kevin in the band and he was super responsive and professional throughout the whole booking/planning process. The great thing about working with the Lucky Devils is how organized their whole operation is. We hated the idea of booking a band through a booking agent and having zero contact with the musicians throughout the booking process. We had Kevin's cell phone number and he would happily step away from what he was doing to answer our questions and the suggestions from both himself and other band members were brilliant. In my opinion, the best part of the Lucky Devils experience was 3-4 weeks before our wedding, the band called us to run through the schedule from top to bottom and went through every little detail thoroughly. We knew then that we made the right choice!
On our wedding day, two of the musicians performed at our ceremony - violin and keys. Then three of them did the cocktail hour - drums, bass and keys. Then we had the full 8 piece band for the after dinner music and dancing. They had EVERYONE on the dance floor and their song selection was perfect - they definitely knew how to read the crowd!
My now wife (Jen) and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Lucky Devils to anyone. They're AMAZING! Thank you Lucky Devils!!!
What to Expect
The Lucky Devils Band are trained proffessional musicians with a wealth of knowledge and experience under their belts. They offer a fully customizable performance in all aspects, from band size, to performance length, to music style and more. We are capable of performing smooth jazz one night, then 80s glam rock the next, to a Great Gatsby style 1920's Big-Band the next!
Please speak to us about your specific requirements.

They play all your favourite songs! The Lucky Devils Band can play all the classics and 70s, 80s, 90s etc, and all the latest stuff too – from Frank Sinatra and Chuck Berry to Black Keys and Beyonce – and everything in between. Although this band was built from the ground up to fill the dance floor, they are all trained jazz musicians, who are just as happy to play cocktail music, acoustic covers, and all of those tunes that work best at the beginning of the night, before the party has really fired up! But when it is time to fill the dancefloor, this is when the band really excels! They pride themselves on knowing exactly the right songs to play at just the right time to pack your dancefloor. See their website for a full list of tunes that they can play, plus live recordings etc...
