Thank you Prime Source! Best Band we have ever had at the St. Nicholas Ball. The attendees never sat down and we want them back again for another year.…

We had the 8SouthBand for our wedding at Houston Station and we had about 180 people in attendance. Thank you Prime Source! They were excellent during the cocktail hour and played softer music while everyone was eating. As soon as everyone was able to get up and dance no one wanted to leave the dance floor! Everyone in the band was incredible, they sounded amazing and their energy was electric. They had multiple costume changes, kept everyone dancing and laughing and seriously made our wedding one of the most fun events we've ever been a part of. My husband and I had multiple people come up to us saying this was the best band they've ever heard at a wedding. We can't recommend them more. If this band is available on your wedding date, don't even wait, just book them! You'll be SO happy you did. Anna was incredibly professional to work with from start to finish, answered all our questions promptly, and worked with our special requests without any issues. We're so pleased with our wedding day and the 8SouthBand was a major contributor! THANK YOU SO MUCH!

The 8 South Band was absolutely amazing! People are still talking about them weeks after my wedding! They are energetic, exciting, and engaging! They made my reception perfect! I couldn't stop dancing all night ! If they are booked already for the date you'd like, change your date. I'm serious! They are the best wedding band in Nashville. My husband and I are already thinking of another way we can use them in the future! Maybe a big birthday party!!  Thank you Prime Source, Anna, Matthew, and the rest of the band for making our night so memorable!

The 12 South Band made our wedding at Cheekwood a huge success! We unfortunately had horrible weather that night but the band got everyone dancing and having a great time. We booked them about 14 months before our wedding and they were wonderful to work with the whole way...including finding us awesome string players and a dance teacher to help with our first dance. Every member of the band gives it their all for the whole night and all of our guests were wowed by the outfit changes, variety of songs and energy of the band. I heard so much great feedback from our guests of all ages raving about them and it made me feel better knowing that the guests (many of whom traveled a long way) had a great night thanks to 12 south band! We would book them again in a heartbeat...my husband said it was 'the best money we spent on the wedding'. Thank you Prime Source!

They played my daughter's wedding reception and it was over 3 hours of nonstop fun! They arrive hours ahead to set up and prepare and were so very professional! The lights and props really add to the energy of the show,our guest packed the dance floor and those who didn't dance were still able to enjoy the show. They were absolutely fantastic and all our guests comments were "Best Band Ever". We have 2 other daughters and plan to schedule their weddings around this crews availability!
