Our Reviews have been outstanding

We have been one of the top bands in America for grand weddings, galas, concerts and corporate events for over 20 years. Send us your email address and we will send you reviews from brides and party planners and inaugural balls and even a video from Betty White herself. :) Here's one: "The Andrew Thielen Big Band gave us the most memorable wedding ever for my daughter and son-in law. If five stars is the highest rating…they get 5 stars. It was a pure pleasure to work with Andrew before the wedding…he offered many good suggestions from his many years of experience. Always said “no problem “ to our requests. Arrived several hours before the reception so everything would be ready when we arrived…even though Myrtle Beach is about a 10 hour drive to the reception. The music just “Blew Away ‘ our guests!"
