The dance floor was packed as everyone danced and sang along with the band. Reprimand made this blessed event a night of total enjoyment! They played a wide variety of genres and time periods so guests from 4 years to 80 were up. They even Incorporated our ethnic requests.
My husband and I were adamant about having a live band at our wedding for at least major 2 reasons.
1. We had our wedding at a concert venue with a stage
2. We are big music fans and wanted people to dance the night away. Our expectations were pretty high and we wanted to stay away from you typical wedding band. The moment we heard Reprimand’s demo video, we knew their style would have the majority of our guests dancing the whole night and that is exactly how it went!
Throughout the night, our guests approached us to rave about how great the band was. The songs they quickly learned for our special dances sounded outstanding.
Devon, the band leader, is a true professional and is wonderful with arranging the details of our set list. We look forward to the next opportunity that we can attend a party band Reprimand event.
They did a great job playing to an older crowd at a wedding. They tore through some classic rock and 80s jams and sprinkled in more contemporary music. They were high energy and came out on the dancefloor and among the dining tables to engage everyone with the performance.
Wonderful ability to play excellent mix of music.
They project like a real band with real talent as they get the room dancing and singing.
It would be Reprimand. Totally professional, yet laid back & flexible. Outstanding communication prior to my wedding & wonderful follow through.
Now onto the actual music - the band has a great sound! Very evident they know one another and have played together where there's actual chemistry. Classic rock, R&B, 80's in tune and tight. It made the wedding. Sincere thanks again!
We had Reprimand to perform during our ceremony and after the dinner at the reception during our wedding May 16, 2015. Devin is such a pleasure to work with! He is responsive, takes action, follows up and you can tell that he loves music. Devin and the girl singer learned a Swedish song for us - and sang in Swedish during the reception!! It sounded very good.
We provided Devin with a list of songs and they played them during the reception. A great band that seems to have great fun when performing which is contagious on the guests. Awesome musicians and great sounds! Good value and it can't be said enough how professional they were - no problems or drama. We highly recommend Reprimand!
Reprimand played at my eldest daughter's wedding -- a gathering of 85 family and friends under a tent on a windy and rainy evening on Long Island. They were really wonderful. They are stellar musicians and vocalists, friendly and funny, accommodating and flexible -- and they had the dance floor packed until 5 minutes before the last limo left for the hotel. Their performance was so irresistible, even my 89-year-old father and 85-year-old mother danced to several songs! I can't wait for those photos. Thank you, everyone, for a great evening.
Response from Reprimand:
It was our absolute pleasure!
Reprimand played at our wedding reception and everyone loved them. At our request they did rock covers, mostly classic rock but with a few newer songs mixed in. Even though it was only a 75 person wedding, the dance floor was busy the whole night with guests of all ages. The musicianship was excellent, and they were energetic throughout. They also played instrumental music for the ceremony.
When talking to guests after the wedding, one of the first things everyone mentions is how much they liked the band. I can not recommend them enough, they really provided a lot of energy and enjoyment for the party.
Reprimand performed at our party in February and did an excellent job. They were a pleasure to work with from start to finish and their professionalism and adaptability was very much appreciated. They were very engaging and energetic which was exactly what we had hoped for.
I highly recommend them for any event! Thank you, Reprimand!
Reprimand was the perfect addition for my graduation party. They were very professional and have a wonderful set list and sound.
REPRIMAND WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL FROM START TO FINISH.THE MUSIC WAS TERRIFIC AND MADE OUR NIGHT ONE TO REMEMBER.WE WOULD GIVE THEM 5 STARS.
These guys have a wide variety of songs and did a great job for us last weekend. Everyone had the best time and we cannot thank them enough. We would definitely recommend them!
Reprimand provided the music for my husband's and my wedding reception. They were an across-the-board hit (as you can probably see from some of the other reviews)!! We enjoyed every aspect of working with them, from coming up with a song list to the big night where they performed with class, energy, and pizzazz. Their musical talent is enormous and their interaction with the crowd was perfect - keeping people interested in the party without being obnoxious or stealing the spotlight. I would highly recommend them!
Not sure of the date, but we saw this band at a club in Mineola. Excellent musicians and showmanship. I'm in a 3 piece cover band myself and I know talent when I hear it. (And now that I know about this site, I'm going to see about adding my group.) Reprimand, you da band!
Big talent, great vocals and showmanship; Pop, swing, jazz, you name it, working hard and making it look easy. Reprimand is a band that does it all.
REPRIMAND ROCKED OUR PARTY!! They've got it all and can do it all! As the father of the bride who hired this band, I must say I could not be more pleased with every aspect of REPRIMAND'S performance, presentation and attitude. This band exceeded my wildest expectations in every way--generating captivating rhythms, smooth transitions and flawlessly faithful representations of all the pieces they played. Each multi-talented band member brought creative, spirited professionalism to every piece performed--displaying great style variety, technique and interpretation. In addition to their artistic virtuosity and depth, they played with focus and energy from beginning to end; and, on top of everything else, they were just plain fun to work with. Prior to the event, they met with my daughter and son-in-law and thoroughly discussed song selection and agenda. The program mix they came up with was perfect. I whole-heartedly and unreservedly recommend REPRIMAND to everyone!
Actually, I'm not sure of the precise date when we saw Reprimand perform at a club, but I remember clearly how well they did their thing. It was on the basis of seeing them at the club that we engaged them for our daughter's wedding this past January, and they have turned into a truly power-packed group.
I heard this band at my sister's wedding reception. They did an amazing job in getting the reception guests happy and dancing. I was surprised at how well they performed. It was hard for me to hear any difference between their songs and the originals. I definitely recommend them for any event!
Reprimand performed for our daughter Marigold Bethany's wedding. The band met with her and her husband Joseph Ernst 6 weeks before the wedding and carefully worked out what Marigold and Joey wanted. On the day of the reception they delivered four hours-plus of high-energy, high-quality, high-ebulliency music, with hardly a break. They engaged those attending the reception with well-planned and also cheerfully improvised ideas. Their selections of music were both well-known enough that we could join in singing, but also given just the needed touch of originality that made th songs unique to the reception and yet faithful to the bands they covered. They went far above and beyond what we could have imagined.
We have had tons of comments about what a great wedding reception it was. This was largely due to Reprimand. Their performance really made the night what it was. The dance floor was packed the whole night. They were great to work with ahead of time and even learned some songs for our event that we requested. This is a great band and I highly recommend them for any event.
What to Expect
A lot of singing, dancing and fun! We make sure the great music never stops as we jump from genre to genre, from fast to slow and back again. If you close your eyes and just listen, you'll swear you're listening to your favorite classic rock radio station based on our variety!
All of the band hails from Long Island, having met up in high school or college. A mutual love of music and performing it has driven all of us to be where we our today, as Reprimand.
