Great Band and great guys!

We recently hired Section 8 to play at our son's wedding reception. They were fantastic. The variety of music, the talent, the "sound," and overall level of professionalism was superb. We highly recommend Section 8.

Awesome Band and Awesome Guys!

We had a great Memorial Weekend Party at our Arlington home thanks to the Section 8 Band. The neighborhood is still buzzing about the music and how good it was. And that is from the neighbors that weren't invited..... We have had request for a repeat party to close out the summer!

AWESOME !

One word will not sum up Section 8, but if I could only use one it would be "AWESOME" !! I have seen them play many times and they always pack the house! I always tell people if you're going to a Section 8 show you better wear your dancing shoes, because you will be on the dance floor. Section 8 isn't only a super band, but they are a super group of guys. When you go to a Section 8 show they make you feel like your part of the band and family. You can tell they put everything they have in every show they do. Again, if you haven't seen Section 8 play YOU NEED TO !! I can promise you will be talking about there show for weeks to come !!
I try to make every show I can because you never know when they are going to throw something new in there sets. I have heard them play over 20 times and they keep you coming back for more !!!

Great Music! Great Band Members! GREAT TIMES!!!

I can't count how many times I've seen this band play and I always look forward to the next time I can see them again!! Every show they put on is a great show. They are top-notch musicians who enjoy playing all kinds of music. Their love of music and extreme talent comes through in every performance. And it doesn't matter if there are five or 5,000 people in the crowd, they always give it their all. If you've never seen them, you need to!!
