Response from The Vintage:
Thank you, Jon! Really appreciate that, my friend. Best wishes!
Had The Vintage out to my home for my daughters wedding, a truly unforgettable event! The temperature that day was 96 degrees, and yes this was an outdoor wedding! Just as the bride started down the aisle, the skies opened! But The Vintage never missed a beat! They even helped retrieve chairs, got a microphone to the reverend, and as the saying goes the band played on! Ron Tippen, (Drums And Lead Singer) kept in touch with me before and after this event, and they really gave a great performance even with the heat, and storms that rolled through.
So we enjoyed them so much I had them back in October, to play for my husband's 60TH Surprise Birthday Party!! And I was lucky as the original date I had in mind, did not work, as the band was booked! But I was able to change the date, which actually worked better for me!. And once again the weather was awful! cold windy, and the had to set up in my garage to stay warm. And once again The Vintage, being the professionals they are , played all evening, and once again a great time was had by all. Great Music, Great Group of people to play it! Do yourself a favor and hire the best! You do not need an obnoxious D.J., or silly games at your wedding, just a great band to play music and keep people dancing all night! My only regret is I do not have an event planned this summer to hire them again!! Not Yet!!
Response from The Vintage:
Wow, thank you, Amy!! Hope you guys are doing wonderfully and that we see you all again soon!! 😊
Words cannot describe how happy I was with The Vintage. We lived in California and were planning a long-distance Ohio wedding, so we had to rely on video clips and blind faith when booking our band.
We didn't meet them until the day of the wedding. They were extremely friendly and eager to please. I was so worried that no one would want to dance because of the heat (very hot July night with no AC), but The Vintage got everyone out on the dance floor and kept them there all night! I received so many compliments that my wedding was one of the most fun weddings my guests had attented:)
The Vintage even worked with our friend that married us. He wrote a song for us, and he sang it onstage with the Vintage! It was very memorable and special to us.
I completely recommend this band!!!

"You guys were amazing. If anyone is on this page looking for a band for a wedding or event, I can say from experience The Vintage is awesome. They had everyone dancing all night, and the crowd even called for an encore. I had several people tell me that this was the best wedding they had ever been to, and heard nothing but compliments about the band all night. I can't thank you guys enough!"
-Matt Beachnau (Charlevoix, MI)
"Had the Vintage perform at our wedding. There were a handful of artists we combed thru. After hearing their demo and reading their reviews it was hands down the best band for the most important day of our lives. Thank you Ron!!"
-John McCue (Shelbyville, MI)
"The Vintage totally made our wedding reception... not only did they play a mix of dance rock that kept an unusually large amount of our guests on the floor all night long, but they also provided the emcee-ing and DJ music in between their sets. If you're considering live music for your wedding, The Vintage is definitely the way to go!"
