The band was fabulous! Great communication, showed up on time and played the best music! Everyone at the party said they were the best band they ever saw at a party! They kept the dance floor dancing all the up to the last song.
A perfect way to kick off the summer!
We had Woodie and the Longboards in 2021 at our annual luau party. They are easy to work with and are professional musicians. They did Beach Boys luau music and then dance music which was what we were looking for our luau dance. They were awesome 5-stars and highly recommend them.
Declined without fully communicating to see what can work. It’s for psychiatric elderly patients and we have to go by what the hospital may or may not approve. It would still have to go up to management. Before I can say anything they declined.
Response from Woodie and the Longboards:
That’s a function of the system. I replied what our rates begin at and they were three times her budget so I clicked on decline. She responded to me that she would have to get those rates approved and I hadn’t yet returned that message as I have a day job that I’m just now finishing up and the return email just arrived 30 minutes ago. I’ll be happy to resubmit a bid if that’s what you’d like and I’m truly sorry if you took offense. I just didn’t want to waste your time. We’d love to work for you or anybody that can pay our rates and I’m sorry for any confusion I may have caused.
Upon returning to the bid to update communication I was unable to respond, once again a function of the system, not me or my band.
Perfect group for out Holiday Gathering
Did a great job. Some of our clients said they were the best band ever.
This band was the highlight of our wedding. They sounded just as good as the actual Eagles or Beach Boys and did a great job emceeing all of the principal events (e.g., first dances, cake cutting, etc.). We also had a few complicated requests that they were able to accommodate, such as performing a medley of different songs for our first dances and learning some of the more obscure Beach Boys and Eagles songs. We were worried that our requests would be too complicated, but they did everything better than we ever could have hoped for. We received universal praise from our guests for choosing this band and we would wholeheartedly recommend booking these guys for any event where great entertainment is needed.
Woody & the Longboards were very friendly & professional. Easy to work with and self-contained. It is clear that they both know & love what they're doing. Thanks, guys!
Extremely professional, sounded great, they made the party come to life!
Woodie and the Longboards were great! We have an annual event and they are the best band we've had in years! I'll definitely have them next year and for other events as well. We had a bride and groom already ask about having them for their wedding. They even got people to dance, and no one here dances. That says a lot! They also played longer and barely left the stage at all. They were awesome!
The 3 guys were friendly, talented and gave a great show!
Music was great professionals great guys nice people even played longer than we ask hardest-working band in California. Family will never forget that part II
This band was great! They showed up on time, we had Inclement weather that prevented us from hosting the event outdoors & they were flexible about set up, etc. and the music was top notch -- people were dancing and having a great time, thanks very much! I can highly recommend.
Thank you for a wonderful evening with your music and audience involvement. We all had a great time and enjoyed your song selections.
They are great to work with. We have a local event called Eagles and Ag and it happens every February. We hired Woodie and the Longboards for a concert and they made it a great success. We are doing the benefit concert again this year and we are glad they are coming back.
These guys are awesome! You will enjoy everything about them. Excellent value and a lot of fun!!!!!!!
