Testimonials
Rhythm Collective and the Motown Trio went above and beyond our expectations

They were exactly what Doug and I had envisioned for our special day, and we couldn’t have been happier with the way the night unfolded and wish we could do it all again, all the time. Before planning a wedding was on our agenda, Doug and I always knew that our band would be one of the most important things we picked for our big day because we always envisioned a night full of energy and excitement, that was not just full of love, but was also crazy fun; and Rhythm Collective and the Motown Trio gave us exactly that. To give you a picture of the night, I watched people crowd surf, get thrown up in the air, put on shoulders, people looking up at the band singing as if it were a concert and hopping up on stage to dance with the band, and sweat dripped from every person’s face... the dance floor was packed, every second of the night—except for when the dance floor broke, because I guess we all danced a little too hard :)

There were about 225 people at our reception, and the overall consensus—from friends our own age to guest our grandparents age—was that the band was outstanding, and what a fun night they all had. Some of our guests have since hired Elan Artists bands since our wedding because of the awesome experience they had at our wedding.

We had Rhythm Collective perform at our wedding and they were absolutely amazing.

First and foremost their renditions of the songs were flawless and kept everyone on their feet dancing. They also worked closely with us (the couple) and our families on special requests and executed them perfectly - I (the bride) sang a song with them, and they learned a special tarantella for the father-daughter dance. They also provided some lovely piano music during the cocktail hour. We would highly recommend choosing Rhythm Collective - and Elan - for an event if you like good music and high-energy entertainers.

On behalf of Joyann and Jeremy and our family we want to give a shout out - THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!
As you know, music either makes an event great or a bust. We cannot get over how wonderful Rhythm Collective and the Gospel Choir performed. Our guests are still talking about the music. The gospel choir was just a nice surprise to everyone and their energy moved us into the dinner tent and the party started. So glad we started the evening with the band playing and the guests dancing. We cannot thank you enough for making our wedding weekend so special. Look forward to working with you again.

Thank you so much for your wonderful performance for Caroline and Brian's wedding!
You truly made it an amazing night! It was great working with you and look forward to future events! Thank you!

I literally have no words, you were just too amazing for words.
I cannot thank you enough for the best performance ever for the Marriott-Foulger wedding, they are still singing your praises. You have made me look like the best planner ever for insisting they book Rhythm Collective, and for that I am grateful. You killed it as usual, and proved yet again why you are the first call on my list.

The videos circulating on social media are incredible and I think the groom will forever be your #1 fan.

Until the next one…

PHENOMENAL!!!
Rhythm Collective simply rocked out all evening long. I couldn’t say anything better about this band. You can’t believe how many people were coming up to me and asking me, “Who is this band?” “Where did you get the band?” The dance floor was packed all night long until the very last song.

I have thrown other gala events in the past, but this band is simply head and shoulders over any band I have ever seen at a Wedding or similar event. You would have to ask the band, but from the looks of it, they had just as much fun playing for us as we did dancing to their sounds.

Please pass on our sincere thank you to all of the members of this great band. It was a pleasure working with your agency and I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again and recommend you to friends and family.

Best regards,

I wanted to send an email to let you know how extremely happy I was with the band (Rhythm Collective) at my wedding!
Everyone is still talking about how amazing they were! I was totally blown away by how much fun and entertaining they are....people were on the dance floor all night long!! I seriously do not think I left the dance floor! The energy was amazing and they were amazing...the dance floor was packed until 1 am, and I'm sure if the reception went past 1 people would have kept dancing! Please pass my gratitude to the band and thank them for extending the party until 1 am!! They were incredible!

Thank you SO much!!

Rhythm Collective was an absolute crowd pleaser at both of our largest fundraising events this past spring!
I have heard nothing but overwhelmingly positive feedback from guests raving about how good the band was! The dance floor was packed and so was the stage as guests danced alongside the band until early hours of the next morning. Rhythm Collective is able to take any song and sound exactly like the original artist while at the same time putting their own new twist on it. They are an amazing local band that I fell in love with the first time I saw them perform and would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat!

Rhythm Collective was an AWESOME addition to our Opening Gala!
It was a great idea to have the violins solo during cocktails and then pull them in for the transition to the fabulous dance party we were looking for, really tied the two parts together. As for Rhythm Collective’s actual performance, it was fabulous! We really wanted a dance party to bring the different demographics in attendance at this combined 750 guest event, and Rhythm Collective did that for us! Once the band started the floor was full of guests dancing, even Bill Cunningham made it out there!

I look forward to working with you and the ÉLAN team again soon, you are on the top of our list! Keep me posted about your NY, Phila, DC events!

Best,

We booked Rhythm Collective through Elan Artists for our wedding and I cannot say enough good things about them. If you are looking for a wedding band, YOU MUST BOOK THEM.

We saw them in a showcase in NYC and were very impressed. We booked them almost immediately for the reception and ceremony/cocktail hour music but that showcase is only a taste of what they can do at an actual wedding.

We dealt with Gretchen for the ceremony who guided me through some choices to make it unique. It was a very easy process. The band leader Daniel was terrific with planning the reception. As we approached the date, we had several phone calls about what we liked and didn't want to hear and the flow of the evening. They learned some new songs for our first dance and our father/daughter and we really felt like they were giving us what we wanted. Our last call was about a week before the wedding and I felt like he knew exactly what we wanted.

The pianist and guitarist from the band that played the ceremony and cocktail hour were terrific. They set the perfect tone to both parts. Before the reception started, people were coming up to us before we were introduced telling us how great the band was. At that point they were just playing background music. Once the introductions and first dance (learned and performed beautifully) were done and the dance floor opened up, that's when they really got going. They were supposed to take a break during the salads and it didn't happen because our guests wouldn't stop dancing. There are so many people on the dance floor that they had to move tables back. At no point did it even occur to me to "request" a song because they read the crowd perfectly and played one amazing song after another. People would not stop coming up to me and telling me how great the band was and asking where I found them. It was ridiculous.

With two male and two female vocalists, they played so many different types of music: standards, hip-hop, lounge, oldies, 80's, 90's and TONS of current stuff too. I was concerned that they wouldn't be able to do any of the hot songs that came out during the summer. Couldn't have been more wrong. They blew us and everyone there away.

Rhythm Collective are great performers and I can't rave enough about how special and fun they made our wedding.

Rhythm Collective was outstanding.
We had people coming up to us all night asking where we found them, and saying that they were amazing and this was the best band they had ever seen at a wedding. They played anything and everything. The extensive list of songs was so great. We had everything from Sinatra to Britney Spears. They we definitely on top of the Top 40, and they just really enhanced the party. Everyone was up and dancing. Even my 81 year old grandmother! Daniel called us the week before the wedding and went through everything with us. The flow and schedule of the night, songs we really wanted to have, timing, and they even let my Uncle come up and play the piano with them for Run Around Sue. It was just amazing. All the band members got down on the dance floor and performed. They even handed the mic to the kids to sing along with them. It was just really unbelievable... The timing on the music for the ceremony was phenomenal. It was even better than what I had imagined in my head. All in all, Elan Artists and Rhythm Collective are definitely the way to go if you want fantastic music and a real party for your reception.

A big congrats goes out to Daniel and Rhythm Collective for a job well done last night!
I heard many guests commenting on the choice of music and especially the violins. We were really happy with the way everything turned out in the end from all parties. Looking forward to the next Elan/DSI event!
