Danced all night posted 10/21/2010

Hiring the band was one of the only decisions I had to make in the wedding planning. Our wedding was outside on a hot day and everybody danced anyway! Really fun band and they we're great to work with.

We loved them!! posted 10/21/2010

They had a mix of music that everybody danced to, their stage set up looked great & they even helped us set up a special video presentation that started our introductions. We were also lucky enough to see them the following month at a friend's wedding in Lake Geneva and they rocked again. Highly recommended!!

Great Band! posted 10/21/2010

My guests are still talking about them. They played a wide mix of songs and sounded great on everything. They we're also patient and extremely easy to deal with on the planning stages. I highly recommend them if you're looking for a fun and memorable reception!

Best wedding EVER!! posted 11/17/2011

From the moment we met them we knew everything would be handled and the night would be perfect--it was! They have an unbelievable play list and they all make you feel that it's your very special party. They played to the crowd the entire night and the dance floor was packed at all times. I would have to say, they made the night. People came up to us all night and asked where we found the band, book them early, it will be the best decision you will make. Thank you so much for making Mary and Brian's wedding one we all will never forget! I have a feeling we will see you again very soon.

A dream to work with and so much fun! posted 11/15/2011

We knew we wanted our wedding band to be able to play a blend of old (think parents and grandparents) and newer (for our friends!). Patrick and the Team were phenomenal and delivered! From our first email to the day of, they were responsive, friendly, professional and went above and beyond our expectations. They worked wonderfully with our vendors (wedding coordinator and event manager) and had every detail covered. Our guests were so impressed with Green 13. We are still receiving compliments and questions about "our band"!

Book this amazing Band! posted 11/8/2011

My wedding was this past weekend, November 5th 2011. They were completely professional but also very fun! I cannot tell you how many compliments we received that night and the next day on how awesome the band was. Many of our guests mentioned they would travel to hear them play anywhere! The less you have to worry about on your wedding day the better and Patrick took the guess work and stress out of everything. My husband and I want to get married again just to experience the band and the dancing again!

My husband and I couldn't be happier that we chose them to be our wedding band. They are true professionals and ensured that our wedding day “flowed” exactly as we had planned. Patrick met with me and my site coordinator weeks before my wedding to plan the event details and schedule down to the minute. They emceed the event flawlessly, kept the dance floor packed, and the party rocking all night long!!!

The Perfect Wedding Band! posted 10/26/2011 (updated 10/26/2011)

The band will make or break your reception so, if you want a crowd-pleasing, "dance all night" band, choose Red Seven! They're talented beyond words, fun to work with, professional, and not to mention...afforfdable!!! Absolutely everyone loved them. As Mother-of-the-Bride, Patrick Doody instantly appealed to me. "You feel like one of us, I kept telling him. My daughter agreed and said they were everything she hoped for and more. We would gladly hire them again!

A pleasure to do business with !!! posted 10/25/2011 (updated 10/25/2011)

These guys were great. Got so many comments from guests who thought so too. They are very professional, meet w/ you before hand to get a handle on understanding what you want & what you are going for. They truly are as anxious to please and make the event all that you want it to be as you are. Although we had a small wedding on a Sunday afternoon, they were successful in getting everyone out there & keeping them there!
