Found this band for my brothers wedding. Went to see them in Washington D.C. to show him and just AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME. These guys bring the party and provided all the fine detail. They were the only band that works independent from an agency and still went above and beyond with the sound system and cocktail hour also.
We could not have asked for a better group of musicians to be at our wedding. From our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception Night Sage completely out did themselves. We enjoyed every moment of our wedding thanks to their energy and talent! Jay was so easy to work with and helped to make sure our night went exactly how we wanted! We can not wait to go watch them play again and would recommend them to anyone who wants there wedding to feel like a party!
Every song had the people dancing and singing along. The band was very friendly and were flexible with the event coordinators. This event happens every year and we definitely will have Night Sage again.
They were very talented and had everyone on the dance floor. We would definitely hire them again!
Response from Night Sage:
Thanks so much for the review. We had a great time and we hope to work with you again in the future. Take care!
Over the years, I’ve used a Ton of different DJ and live music staffing services and I can honestly say Xen Live is the cut above. Professional, punctual...perfect. I know a fair bit about sound gear and they use only premium, state-of-the-art equipment. The performers that they sent to my last holiday party were literally some of the best I’ve ever heard. Bottom line, I don’t have any questions left about who I’m hiring for my company’s next party or which band will be playing my daughter’s wedding. Xen Live has answered.
Response from Night Sage:
William, its always a pleasure to work with you. Thanks and keep in touch!
