You and the band crushed it, even in a small footprint the band was making moves and bringing the highest level of performance to them and their guests.
Thanks for finishing the night with a special Happy Birthday. We were all together on Sunday and everyone was like THE BAND... and I was like I KNOW.
You all take it to another level, everytime. You read this ground perfectly.

Rhythm Collective knocked it out of the park! I cannot thank you and the entire band enough for being so kind, positive and flexible on Saturday. I so appreciated your willingness to make it happen, even when inclement weather was approaching. You really made it happen and I can't thank you enough for it. We will be highly recommending your band via Elan to many clients in the future!
You were amazing! Until next time, take care!

Our wedding day was more than we could have ever dreamed of & we feel so blessed to have spent our wedding dancing the night away with our dear friends & family. The entire band crushed it, I don't know if we have EVER had more fun. You guys brought our party to life, thank you for giving us such a beautiful memory from which to start our married lives.

Can’t thank you enough for making the evening so special. Not only did we have the best time but we got a lot of comments from friends, family and even staff at Castle Hill that you guys were the best they ever heard. Please pass this along to all the members of the group. Such an amazing night! Thanks again

You guys were absolutely incredible last night at our wedding. You did such a fantastic job for us – Karen and I are so deeply appreciative. It was just amazing. I can’t begin to tell you how many conversations we have with guests who have said – ‘That’s the best band I’ve ever heard play at an event.’ And, every single person who has commented on the night – has said exactly that. Taharqa, you personally, and along with your teammates really made the evening the incredible success that it was. We could tell that you were performing with a real positive energy – and pouring your hearts and souls into the effort. We thank you and look forward to connecting for additional events in the months and years to come.
All the best,
Jay and Karen

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.

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.

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.

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!
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.
