If you are torn between a band or a DJ, then get the St. Louis Big Band and get both. Ryan was awesome to work with and even learned all of our song requests, even my dad's secret song request. I asked for a fog machine and they delivered. Even though my guest list went down in size, the St. Louis Big Band made it feel like a great big party and people couldn't stop talking about how much they loved the band.
The St. Louis Big Band even played some songs that I first wanted them to learn but then was replaced, during the DJ part of the night. So that was a nice surprise. And they even took some DJ song requests from my very Mexican side of the family and that made them very happy.
Although there were some small, but funny mishaps (the groom being called to dance with my mom during my dad's song to her), we had a blast and it was because of the St. Louis Big Band. I was able to dance all night while the groom mingled and they also handled a few of my drunk friends (who were huge fans) with care.
I would highly recommend The St. Louis Big Band. Rachel's voice is so beautiful and I'm glad we were able to get Joe as well. The duet for our first dance went above expectation and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome of it. If you are looking for a way for your wedding to stand out from the rest, hire St. Louis Big Band.

Response from The St. Louis Big Band:
Thank you so much for all the compliments about the band and especially your gleaming words about our vocalists! We loved every minute of your event and are excited that we were recently booked for another performance at Integrity Hills later this year. I wanted to take a minute to apologize for my slip-up with your Mom & Dad’s dance. I review the instructions for every event scrupulously & am disappointed that I made that mistake. Thanks so much for your review and please keep in touch, your night was truly unforgettable! -Ryan
