  • “8 south was hands down the most amazing band I have ever seen! Our wedding was absolutely amazing and unforgettable because of this band. Our guests would not stop coming up to us asking us how we ever found them. They were just unreal! Our wedding was absolutely amazing and unforgettable because of this band. Immediately after dinner, the tables were empty and the dance floor was full, and it stayed that way the entire night. We had never seen that happen at a wedding before. We are so thankful for this band. Besides being the most phenomenal band on the planet… they were also SO great to work with. Anna was so responsive and she was always super quick to email me back. If you don’t have 8 or 12 south at your wedding…don’t get married!”

  • “You cannot beat this band… we used the 8 South Band for my daughter’s April wedding here in Memphis.. I had attended a cousin’s wedding in Nashville January 2016 and thought they were so good that they would be great for my daughter’s wedding.. they kept the crowd on their feet the entire reception and the crowd at the end was as big as at the beginning.. my daughter and her new husband had a blast.. you can not go wrong hiring them.. such fun! A day and night to remember!”
    Mother of the Bride- April 2017
  • “We had the 8SouthBand for our wedding at Houston Station and we had about 180 people in attendance. 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!”
