We hired The Cast for my sisters wedding and they did not disappoint. They have a great selection of songs and more than accommodating if you requests a few not on their list.
Importantly for me, as I was coordinating the wedding plans from Australia, was that Bill was super organized and responsive throughout all the planning stages and the whole band were the ultimate professionals on the day.
We made a great choice hiring The Cast, they sound great and would throughroughly recommend them.
It was a pleasure to work out the details of our Cinco de Mayo event here in Solivita with Bill Schwartz. From the first email and subsequent phone calls it was very evident that I was dealing with someone who has a passion for what he does. All the arrangements were made, the play list gone over...everything was set. The private event for just over 80 guests was a huge success. Everyone praised The Cast Band for their performance. Bill and members of the band kept the room entertained throughout the evening. I look forward to having The Cast Band perform at future functions hosted by myself and others here in Solivita. Don't hesitate to hire them for your event. Thank you to Bill, Steve, Grant, and Melanie for a great time. See you guys soon!
I have worked with The Cast on two events and both were a pleasure ! Great communication leading up to each wedding had bride and planner feeling perfectly at ease knowing everything would run smoothly. Each night was flawless and the dance floor was always packed.
We hired 'The Cast' for the big 2012 Sea World Ski Show Reunion at the Caribe Royale in Orlando. They are great for getting the party started! Lots of dancing to our favorite songs. The party was rockin' and so was the band!
The Cast band is excellent entertainment for any size party. We have had them for 3 parties and they are just great!
The Cast Band played at our wedding, well they did more than just play a few songs...they brought the party! I cannot say enough nice things about these great people. They took our requests, prepared songs and even helped me with a surprise or two.
Our wedding took place on Saturday, June 15th, 2013 at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes in Orlando.
As the size of our wedding grew, our plans changed. So we decided to hire a live band for our reception. This was pretty last minute, but I was lucky and blessed to find DJ Steve Schulz' number.
From the first moment I was in contact with Steve, he was incredibly responsive, professional, and always went out of his way to accomodate all of our needs. Due to the fact that everything was pretty short notice, Steve and I were in constant communication to make sure everything would be perfect. There was never a time that Steve did not return my phone calls or texts, and he always went out of his way to make sure all of our questions and concerns were answered promptly.
DJ Steve Schulz and the Cast Band were incredibly talented, fun, and entertaining. They kept the party going all night long thanks to their versatility (our group of guests were pretty diverse) and high energy performance. Laura Brooks, the vocalist, is beautiful, confident, and incredibly talented. Bill Schwartz, Steve Ramsdell, and Grant Smith were absolutely fabulous. But what I loved the most was that not only were they incredibly entertaining and fun, but they all had an air of sophistication that not only made our wedding super fun, but also quite elegant.
Words canot express how greatful I am to Steve and the members of the Cast Band. They met every single one of my high expectations due to their talent, professionalism, responsiveness, flexibility, and ability to make each one of our guests happy and entertained!
The Cast played for us at a large reunion in a corporate venue. The band not only had a terrific sound, but they were punctual, professional and delivered everything promised. I definitely recommend hiring this talented group.
At Downtown Bar and Grill we have had this group come and entertain our people on several occasions and as I stated in the title wow they absolutely rocked the house and everybody dances and enjoys the entire evening. If you have any type of occasion where you need somebody that plays a mix of absolutely everything this is your band we so look forward to having them come back and play hopefully on a regular basis.
They can play anything!
