I heard about these guys on referral from a friend and they were AMAZING. We hired the full band for the reception and their DJ services for our ceremony. The energy they have is unbelievable, their demos on their website are NOTHING compared to live. They had the dance floor packed the entire night, even people I know HATE to dance were in the middle of the floor. I have already given their info to 3 people (and the wedding was 2 weeks ago). I cannot fully express how impressed I was. For the mother-son dance, my husband and his mother chose “Sweet Child of Mine”- which the band played a slower, more swing version of LIVE!!!! What an awesome memory and they nailed it (and every other song of the night). Joe was great to work with; he answered every question and never once did I worry about anything. Joe kept me relaxed on the wedding day and handled all the detail background work. We also hired their DJ only services for our graduation reception from Chiropractic school and they were great there too. If you are even considering a live band, check out their website- their HUGE music variety was outstanding and they truly made the night!

Though Lauren is a “theme person,” she surprised even herself by not having a themed wedding. Instead, she stuck with her favorite colors of royal blue, black and purple. The band they chose, the Walk-Ins, “made the night” for Lauren. The four-piece group started with an acoustic set for cocktail hour, did an interactive piano show during dinner, and later kept the dance floor packed.

I wish I could give these guys 10 stars out of 5. They made the wedding reception a party!!! Joe sang to my Mom, sang to my husband’s mom, and even got me onstage to sing! Joe was out in the crowd, feeling the crowd, and totally sang his heart out. No one sat down the whole reception, every one was on the dance floor. Joe was phenomenal to work with, and he made our day special and memorable. My wedding exceeded my expectations because of Joe and the Walk-Ins. This band is INCREDIBLE!

The Walk-ins were awesome! They were interactive and got everyone dancing! They were also very easy to work with and I felt like they truly listened to my husband and my ideas. I have already recommended them!
