“Guests loved Velocity…LOVED. When my fiance and I started our planning we decided one thing, we wanted live music as our venue had a stage; also we wanted everyone dancing ALL NIGHT. I have been to too many weddings where DJs are impersonal and guests don’t feel any need to dance and I didn’t want that at our wedding. One of our first bookings was Velocity. I researched them, they had the sound and fit in our budget (bands can get pricey). They rocked the night. They showed up right on time for what we agreed on and confirmed the set details with me and my fiance. Most important was I put in my notes, “I want the dance floor busy all night” and IT WAS! I got so many compliments on the band, people loved their sound and song list. I had family taking videos of dads and aunts that NEVER dance at weddings getting on the floor…willingly! Even our breaks were packed as my husband submitted a playlist of salsa he wanted played and they downloaded it ahead of time and played it during breaks. I have had so many people that stayed hours later than they planned because they said “the band just made them lose track of time”. Aside from their performance, I especially loved working with Matt. Our bank made a huge mistake and our final payment, that would arrive a day before due, was mailed to the wrong address and my bank said “sorry, you’ll have to wait a week to get the money back” I totally thought I would lose our band days before the wedding as the payment would be super late now. Matt was so understanding and more so said it was no problem. We arranged to drop the check off in person when we arrived a few days before the wedding and he said “that works great” Like, could have been the biggest disaster and ACA stepped up when Chase bank wouldn’t; I CANNOT praise them enough…I would hire them again and will tell everyone to book them!” — Gregory
“Velocity was a hit. Friend and family are still raving about them 1 month later! They were easy to work with and happy to work with any requests. We had a bridal party mishap before announcing the group and they helped us stay calm and managed the situation well. They handled a bummer situation when the flu hit the bridal party SO WELL. Finally, their lead singer was caught in a storm, and he couldn’t make out wedding. They had another dude fill in and he killed it!! We really couldn’t be happier.” — Caroline
“Very professional, prepared and kept the guests engaged the entire evening. We highly recommend Matt Anton and Velocity Band!” — anonymous
“The band Velocity performed at our wedding and they were WONDERFUL! Great to work with through the whole process – figuring out what time they would play, set up/tear down, what songs…everything was pretty seamless.” — anonymous
“I am so happy we went with a live band for our wedding. ACA was great to work with and the band, Velocity, is amazing. If you are looking for a fun, high energy band, with fantastic vocals – Velocity is worth every penny.” — Erin
“Awesome band! Velocity was a fantastic band to work with for our wedding! Their enthusiasm and spunk kept the dance floor going all night, and we appreciate the good variety of music played. We were especially grateful for their flexibility and willingness to allow some of our musician family members to join them for a couple songs. They were a great hit! We received many compliments from our guests; many saying the band made for one of the best weddings they’ve been to. Anyone looking for a fun, reasonably priced band..we’d definitely recommend!” — Tien Dinh
