We're the area's freshest, sweetest, tastiest party band in the Omaha / Lincoln area! From the 80s Rock to today's current Country and Pop favorites, we're sure to shake your tree!
And we aren't limited to a single set list--we tailor each show to fit our audience--and we make it seem natural...organic even! So if you need a special song performed that no other band knows...no problem. Our musicians didn't just fall off the tree, and no toxic chemicals ever touch our skin...so we can master songs in hours, not days. Red Delicious can pretty much spice up anything from any genre from the last 1,000 years.
So how you like them apples!
We hired Red Delicious to emcee and perform at our wedding reception last month and it was THE BEST DECISION I made for the wedding. Everyone was on the dance floor immediately and didn't stop dancing until last call! The energy was amazing. They also did a wonderful job moving everything along and playing great music during their set breaks. Dancing with my friends and family at the reception was the highlight of our wedding :) Thank you Red Delicious!
I think the previous reviews summarize how great this band is pretty well, so I don't have too much to add (that's a lie...Red Delicious was so great so I do have a lot to say about them). I am just so grateful for Elise in all of her help throughout our wedding reception-she helped to make everything move along smoothly throughout the night. And the whole band had our friends and family out on the dance floor all night. They played a perfect variety of songs, both contemporary and throw-backs, and played them and performed them all so well. They even surprised me by playing Sweet Caroline, which I will always remember as a highlight of my wedding day. My husband also loves rap music, so Elise was really easy to work with in coordinating some MP3 versions of music into the set breaks. Elise was also very prompt at returning my emails or hopping on the phone if I had any questions, entirely organized, and overall a perfect fun and lively personality to bring the party to our reception. I think live music is such a fun element to add to a reception and if you're looking for a band in the Omaha area I couldn't recommend any group more than Red Delicious. If you want your wedding reception to be a guaranteed good time, do yourself a favor and book Red Delicious!
Red Delicious recently performed at our wedding. They were absolutely amazing!! Elise was so sweet and very helpful in the planning process. They even learned our wedding song for us!!! The day of, they took everything and ran with it. I did not have to worry about a thing. They kept the dance floor full all night!! Even during their breaks they played great music to keep the party going! They were like the cherry on the top for our day. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone for any type of party!!
I hired this band to entertain people of different ages. Elise was very helpful and easy to work with. Everybody enjoyed their music and I had a few people ask where they would be playing so they could see them perform again. I had our party at the Shadow Ridge Country Club and I even had the entertainment coordinator ask me about them for future parties at the Club to recommend them. I was happy to give them the information. Thank you, Red Delicious, for helping to make my party so successful!
We've gotten SO many compliments on how great the music was for our wedding reception. This band is so incredibly talented and our guests were dancing THE ENTIRE NIGHT!! Everyone on the dance floor had an absolute blast and Red Delicious was clearly having fun with the crowd! They even got me up on stage to sing with them for a few songs (don't tell our vows, but this was probably the highlight of our wedding day :) ).
Red Delicious was so easy to work with and get ahold of regarding the details of our big day. We threw several curveballs at them with items we wanted to incorporate into our reception, not to mention the bride and groom running late with their own schedule the entire night, and Elise and crew didn't even break a sweat! In my husband's words, we'd hire them again in a heartbeat! If you're looking for a fun, talented, and interactive band for your next event that will keep your guests on the dance floor all night, you can stop looking. You've found them!
WOW! We had seen Red Delicious play at a few local bars and had always enjoyed watching them play but our favorite so far was at our wedding reception. It was an absolute PARTY! Their playlist was such a blast and had all our wedding guest out on the dance floor the entire night! It’s so fun to talk to our guest about the big day and all them mentioned how much fun the band was! They even learned a new song for me to dance with my dad... and I will truly never forget that. It was beyond special. Thank you thank you thank you, Red Delicious. You all outdid yourselves!!!!! We can’t wait to come enjoy some more of your guys shows!!
We hired Red Delicious for my parents 40th wedding anniversary and they were fantastic! They sounded amazing in the small venue that probably wasn't made for a live band. I would highly recommend Red Delicious for your event!
RED DELICIOUS IS AWESOME! I hired this band for a surprise birthday party for my husband, what a hit!! There were people there from ages 20-70 and all had a great time. From the very first song to the last the dance floor was packed. Elise was so easy to deal with and sang a special song for my husband and me, it was great. I could go on and on with praise for them, go see them for yourself and you'll see what I'm talking about. I'm trying to think of another event I could hire them for! I think I'll become a "groupie"! 😬🎤
Besides marrying my best friend.. Red Delicious was THE best part of our wedding! They had the dance floor packed from the first song to the very last. Their variety in genres is incredible and their interaction with the dance floor is spot on. We had so many guest comment on how amazing and fun they were! Elise was so accommodating when it came to helping me make our day perfect. She had several conversations with me to discuss song choices and give me ideas on what to do. She helped provide the music for the ceremony via MP3 which worked out perfectly. My dream wedding became a reality and I couldn't be happier! We want to send a sincere thank you to the whole Red Delicious Band for making our big day so special and memorable. We are sure to see you again!
We had Red Delicious play at our wedding and we couldn't have had a better time at our reception! Our guests were dancing all night long and we had so many compliments on the great music Red Delicious played. Elise helped create a timeline of the reception so all of the announcements, speeches, slideshow, etc. were handled by the band while we were able to mingle and enjoy our evening!
Response from Red Delicious Band:
Thank you Amber and Brock! We had a great time and enjoyed playing for your wedding reception!! It was a beautiful night!!
Red Delicious has played at Milligan's June Jubilee celebration for the past two years in our outdoor Centennial Garden and always puts on an amazing show. Very easy to work with and well worth the money. The show is full of high energy, outstanding vocals and a wide variety of music, which makes this one of the best cover bands around. Highly recommend!
Red Delicious played our company's outdoor customer appreciation night party this year and it was a phenomenal show! The band was great, the crowd loved the variety of tunes they played, and even outdoors their sound setup was top notch.
My new husband and I have been to multiple Red Delicious performances at various venues and had such a blast that we knew we HAD to have them for our wedding reception! They were so easy to work with, Elise was able to emcee the whole thing so we didn't have to hire another DJ, and we all danced the night away!! So many of our friends and family members commented how much fun the band was and how cool it was to rock all night!!! Thanks so much Red Delicious Band for making my wedding reception a night for all to remember! :)
We have had Red Delicious at our venue numerous times and they never disappoint! Such a fun and energetic group that always gets the crowd involved! They play a variety of songs and the quality is always outstanding! Would HIGHLY recommend them for your next event!!
This is the 3rd time I have been around Red Delicious, they are amazingly talented, incredibly easy to work with, and awesome live.
We hosted a brewery birthday party with 500+ participants and Red Delicious had them going from beginning to end with amazing covers and jams.
Would highly recommend them for future events.
What a way to rock in the new year! Red Delicious was absolutely amazing and the crowd enjoyed them. It was a fantastic night of fun and music. The band played a variety of music and they played to the crowd. The dance floor was very rarely lacking dancers. We look forward to the next time.
I had heard Red Delicious a year ago for a Christmas Party and I was so impressed with them that I suggested to my co-workers that we have them for our Christmas party. I contacted the band and they were very easy to work with. Our Christmas Party was Dec. 12, 2014 and Red Delicious was simply amazing!! I know of one person that talked to them about possibly doing his wedding. I heard so many great comments and was told by many that this was one of the best company Christmas parties in a long time. I highly recommend Red Delicious!!!
