If The Straytones aren't the number one wedding band in America I don't know who is or who else would deserve the title. There isn't enough room on the page for me to say just how excellent the band is and the same goes for Crowd Theory Entertainment in general. What my wife and I wanted was a band that could play all the hits (from several eras) but have the feel of a true, original band, not a group of pieced together musicians that mindlessly play through songs every weekend.

As a professional company, Crowd Theory is exactly what anyone who books them would want. Sean is extremely responsive, adaptable, and down to earth. These traits come through in every one of the musicians he works with too. Put simply, the Straytones and Sean made our wedding day.

Even after the gig is over, this is a man who truly cares and is working his tail off to bring such great vibes and music to people. If ever there was something that warranted a guarantee, it is the Straytones.

5 stars across the board! My friends and family haven't stopped raving about this band since our wedding. There are a few musicians in my family, and the band agreed to learn a requested song that my family could jam with them on. It was such an amazing moment that we'll never forget! From ceremony to reception, everyone marveled at their skill as entertainers. I can't wait to throw another event so I can have them back! No doubt the best decision of our wedding.

Oh man, what to say about the Straytones......I can only say that they absolutely made the entire wedding!! I'm convinced that even if I didn't show up the wedding would have still been a hit haha. I'm still getting phone calls asking for the name and contact info for our wedding band.

We had some pretty talented musicians as wedding guests and they were all amazed at how great the band was. We had people telling us it was the best wedding band they've ever heard. This all made the night so incredible and made us so happy knowing that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves! Our night would not have been what it was if we hadn't hired the Straytones! Don't think twice about it, just book them!!! It'll be the best decision you make!
