Wedding Wednesday - The Band

Whenever I hear the band's tunes, I want the wedding to be here immediately.  Haha!  I just simply love live music and a good band was top priority for me. 

My friend Katie suggested Still Cruzin' last summer and I basically booked them immediately.  She has impeccable taste and they played at her own wedding, among many of her friend's weddings as well.

Still Cruzin' is the "Party Band of the South."  They play everything from Top 40 to Motown to Beach Music to 80's.  Anything you want!  They are out of Georgia and began in 1977 having played over 1,300 weddings.

6 out of the 8 are lead vocalists so needless to say, they can sing!  One thing I'm debating on is having a lady join them.  Thoughts on this?  I love a good girl singer so I'm leaning towards asking her.  They say they can make a party without her but they will do whatever.  Hmmm....I don't have to decide until November but yall know I must decide before then.

Soooo let's get to the real scoop.  Tell me your favorite song you've seen at a wedding.  Or any essential song that you think must be played.  They know between 500-700 songs so I need to come up with a fun list of "must plays."  Or feel free to email me your wedding song list! ;)

Yayyy! I love bands that go from mo-town to pop to 80s, but regarding favorite songs, I don't know! I love everything! :)

Just their names makes them sound like tons of fun! I think if you have a lady who can belt it out that would add even more to it, but with 6/8 of them being lead vocalists I bet they will be fantastic either way. I love wedding news!

we also had a "do not" play list in case some of the guests requested songs that we really did not want played. more work, i know! the band sounds like a great choice!

live music is the best at weddings! its so rare to see it, or at least at the weddings I have been too. But my boyfriend is a musician so I'm sure our wedding (one day, not yet) well have a live band.

I love the classic '80s songs like "Jessie's Girl" and "Livin on a Prayer." They always seem to get people to dance!

Having spent a majority of my life in Louisiana a 2nd line to 'When the Saints Go Marching In' is a total must!!!

How cool! I love bands like this! My best friend's wedding was terrible.... she had a friend of her husband who is in a band perform and no one knew any of the songs and you could not dance to anything it was really tragic. Any song that gets people dancing is always a must. xo
