Thanks for reaching out! Trademark was the BEST BAND ever! We have never seen so many people on the dance floor at a wedding, all night long. They truly made the night the best night of our lives, and we could not be more appreciative. The songs were amazing, the lighting and acoustics were incredible. They are the best wedding band around. Thank you so much for helping us through the process!

One of the highlights, and there were many for me, was Trademark. They were professional, sounded excellent, and certainly know how to entertain and keep the flow of the evening going. There were many rave comments about them and one mother whose daughter is getting married who asked me about booking them. I gave her your information but the wedding is over a year away. I could not have been happier with them.

I cannot say enough good things about Trademark. We had one phone call with Kevin and knew immediately he was a professional and Trademark knew how to get a crowd moving. You could feel his energy through the phone. Trademark had the dance floor crowded the whole night! Every song they sang was so full of energy that no one wanted to take a break. They interacted with the crowd and knew how to keep everyone engaged. They met every request made at the wedding - even letting my 10-year-old nephews rap! They were the first thing everyone has mentioned when they talk about our wedding. They were just all around amazing!!! Trademark was such an easy vendor to work with and you can tell they've been in the business for a long time and know what they are doing. We told them what we were looking for and they definitely delivered! We are so glad we hired Trademark - they certainly made our wedding reception so much fun and very memorable!

We cannot thank you enough, everything last weekend was better than we'd hoped for! The band was phenomenal, and I can't tell you how many friends and family members said something to me about how much they enjoyed the music. As you know, it had been a long time getting to the big day, but Trademark was a big reason why it was so worth the wait. I hope we get to see them perform again someday. It's been wonderful working with you, we're so thankful for how easy you've made everything. We won't forget you should we ever need entertainment again! Thanks for everything,

Once again TRADEMARK provided us with an outstanding evening of entertainment! We hit the dance floor as soon as they started to play and we were so sorry to see the night end. They know how to work the crowd. It was a great evening enjoyed by everyone! Thanks James and crew!

Trademark was AMAZING. The dance floor was packed all night long. Even the people who couldn’t fit on the dance floor were dancing in the grass. People were coming up to me all night raving about the band. They interacted with the crowd and just made the entire event fun. I’ve had numerous people tell me that it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to because of the band!

He's very professional, he responded quickly to a couple of texts, and he has a comfortable laid back demeanor.

To say Trademark was THE BEST would be a huge understatement. Every singe one of them were absolutely AMAZING!!! We are still getting compliments on how great they were and how great of a performance they put on. They did such a good job getting the party started and kept it going all night which is exactly what we wanted. They interacted with they crowd and even got my on stage which is very impressive! Not only are they amazing performers but James was an awesome MC. He did a great job from introducing the wedding party to announcing the sparkler send off, and making sure everything ran smoothly in between. We had the best time! We highly recommend Trademark and definitely plan on seeing them again in the future!

Trademark was AMAZING! The whole time, our guests were coming up to Tyler and I just in awe of how awesome they were! It truly could not have been a complete day of fun without them and we are so very grateful for their time spent celebrating with us! We hope they had a wonderful time as well and enjoyed being part of the day despite the rather wet ending we had with the weather. We really could not have been more pleased with how professional they all were and how wonderful they sounded. Please send our kindest regards to all of the members of the band and a special thanks to James for being our lovely point of contact before and throughout the event. They made our big day that much more special. Best wishes and many thanks

Trademark brought our wedding reception to life in a way I could have never excepted. They are VERY talented and enjoyable to watch as vocalists, instrumentalists, and performers, but they also are so fun that you don't want to just sit back and watch; you want to get up and dance!! Trademark was interactive with my husband and I and our guests during the reception and helped us all have the best time! We could've kept dancing and singing with them for hours longer and did not want the night to end. Trademark's band leader, James, is so easy to communicate with and work with in the planning process as well. Along with being fun and talented, the band members are so kind and friendly! We were honored to have them with us during our celebration and thank them for everything!!

They were outstanding, both to work with from start to finish, and at keeping our party's energy through the roof. Experiencing many vendors lose their cool in the weeks leading up to our wedding really highlighted Trademark's professionalism and polish. I was a client with many demands, and Trademark rose to the challenge for each and every last "ask," exceeding my expectations. I truly appreciated that. I also felt so taken care of throughout planning because James always made himself available for phone calls and was as eager as I was to lock down all of the specifics and logistics well in advance of the wedding. Trademark kept their cool, and when other vendors seemed to scramble, they were accommodating and flexible. Danny and I have always felt that a band makes the party; it's the secret sauce. Trademark was an extra-special batch. Our guests raved about how interactive they were and they're ability to perform. They sounded amazing, and our guests (even ones who usually don't) danced almost all night. They honored our request for purely Motown hits but seemed to give the favorites new life. I would 100% work with Trademark again and would be happy to be a reference down the road if ever needed. Also, Mason, hats off to you as well for being a superb agent. You were also so helpful and available, and I always felt in very good hands. I'll try to send some more brides your way down the line!

Trademark was absolutely fabulous. They played for our son's rehearsal dinner at the Commonwealth Club and had everyone totally engaged not to mention singing with the bride and groom one of their favorite songs, "Wagon Wheel". The variety of music was phenomenal and much appreciated by the attendees as evidenced by the participation. It was a blast from start to finish. But, that's not all they did, James assisted us by providing great advice and guidance throughout the whole planning process which was a huge plus because this was our first time at arranging such a large dinner party. We would highly recommend Trademark for any occasion. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening!

I can’t thank you enough for coordinating them for our party!

Ya’ll were fabulous! There is not a better band for dancing and entertaining. The way you brought in Anna and Matt with the fanfare, sang acapella when the power went out, called bridesmaids, Anna and then Matt to the stage was all so cool! It really is extra bonus. Your wife has the voice and stage presence that the audience loves to hear and see. All of your band is so talented and upbeat. Thank you once again for a wonderful wedding experience. I look forward to dancing to Trademark  again when daughter number 3 gets married.

As always James, you’re such a professional and easy to work with.


Sep 10, 2016

I can not begin to tell you how much Trademark made the night. Your talent exceeds any we have seen at any event. Looking forward to finding an excuse to have another party. Maybe my husband and I will renew our vows.  Thank you for everything, including your professionalism, attentiveness and responsiveness.

I booked a lot of bands when I was in college for my fraternity's events and you guys exceeded all my expectations. Everyone said you were hands down the best band they had seen at a wedding. Thank you again for a truly wonderful night. If we get the chance to refer anyone for a wedding or event, we will absolutely give them your name.

It was great to meet you as well.  Here are my thoughts on Trademark:

By far the most talented, professional and gracious band I have worked with in a long time.  Loved  their energy and attitude.  It takes a talented group to be able to adjust to a crowd- weddings bring that to an even higher level.  Trademark did not disappoint.  Talented, flexible and FUN!!  From the moment they walked into the club – they were a joy to work with!

Goodness where do we even start!!  Thomas and I wanted to send a note to you and Trademark for helping to make our wedding absolutely perfect!  You all were such a hit!  I can’t believe how quickly you were able to get the entire wedding to the dance floor.  It was even better than we envisioned and wow did we have a BLAST dancing! 

In the past few weeks after our wedding the biggest feedback we have gotten was “wow the band was unbelievable”!  We wanted a wedding where everyone would be dancing and having a good time and ya’ll sure made that happen!  The songs you played were exactly what we wanted and the atmosphere was electric.  We could go on and on...

Thank you again, it was an absolute pleasure to work with you and to have Trademark perform at our wedding.  We are truly grateful and feel very lucky that we were able to book you!

Thank you again!!

You are all the true meaning of professional and put forth 110% effort into making the events you play at  very memorable.”

Sorry I was out of town! I will absolutely remember you all for future clients and both Les Jolie and Trademark were wonderful, it really couldn't have gone better!

James was a great band leader and phenomenal to work with, he made things so easy on me as the event planner and really made the night flow nicely in terms of music, announcements and events. The band had so much energy and the crowd did not stop dancing; everyone was sweating like crazy by the end of the night!

I cannot thank you enough for the incredible job Trademark did for my daughter's wedding. I have had so many rave compliments, about every single aspect - the music, the perfect sound level for different times, and perfect amount of interaction with the crowd. Another comment was how you wasted no time setting up and choosing the next song - those drum sticks clicked and you went instantly into the music.  

There were people dancing even when they were supposed to be eating dinner - isn't that the biggest compliment of all to the band? When they would rather dance than eat short ribs and crab cakes?!!!! The flow of the evening was superb and I can honestly say you made the evening.

I have already given your name to two friends, so hopefully before too long I will be at a venue where you will be playing again.

In the meantime, please thank your musicians again from me, and tell them how much they were appreciated.

It was such a pleasure working with James.  He contacted me well in advance of the concert date and then when it got closer, to send me the details of the band set-up and to find out who the sound company was so that he could touch base with them.  So professional, one of the more professional bands I have dealt with.  To say they were a big hit with the crowd last night is an understatement!   I have gotten some great feedback on the band’s performance and how much they enjoyed the music and energy of the band.  I enjoyed it myself and had a smile on my face watching the pure joy in the crowd from kids to the elderly.  We will definitely have them back!!

Trademark just blew this town away! They were fantastic, phenomenal and beat our expectations by a hundred fold. Our dance floor was packed from the first song to the last song. I have never seen that. The guest list was ages 17 to 60 and Trademark hit a total home run for every guest there. They are the most professional group out there! They are wonderful to deal with....they know there job and get it done. Our family has memories that will last a life time.

Thanks for finding Trademark for our party.

Trademark performed at our daughter's wedding at the Jefferson Hotel in Richmond on July 5th and they were absolutely fantastic! I can't imagine a better band for a wedding...or any other event for that matter. The dance floor was chock-full the entire evening. I haven't danced as much as I did that night in 30-plus years (or maybe even my entire life) and many guests who never dance were on the floor most of the evening as well. The band was simply superior. The musicians and vocalists provided a stellar performance that delighted the crowd for the entire duration of the evening. I can't count the number of people, both young and old, who commented on how great they were. So glad my daughter chose them!

From start to finish, the dance floor was packed and ALL of the reception attendees were participating in dancing, singing along, and just having a good time. The members of Trademark made this wedding day celebration one to remember for the ages. My THANKS for a job well done !!

I just wanted to thank you all immensely for the absolutely amazing job that you all did at Joe and I's wedding on April 25th!!!! You all were on fire and have amazing talent! Everyone had an absolute blast and are still talking about the band. We loved how you got everyone so involved and had the whole party just rocking! All of our guests (including Joe) thought that me and the girls had rehearsed Stop in the Name of Love...everyone loved it!!! Our photographers said that they've never seen such a party (and they mostly photograph weddings!). The photographers said that they turned around and at least 175 people were packed onto the dance floor getting low and everyone had a smile on their face and were having the time of their life! When you all stopped playing everyone said that they could have kept on dancing for 5 more hours! Seriously, you all were PHENOMONAL!! I will recommend you again and again to friends in the area that are getting married. We so much appreciate the fabulous job that you all did and hope that you all had fun as well. We had an absolute blast and will always remember the evening for the fantastic entertainment! Thank you so much again!

Thank you so much for helping us to secure Trademark for our daughter's wedding reception. We heard nothing but glowing comments all night about how wonderful they were and I thought they were fabulous. They were engaging and everyone was dancing and having a good time. It all ended so quickly, I wish we had them for an additional hour.

A friend of mine who had a DJ for his daughter's wedding and I had this discussion about the value of a band vs. a DJ. We agreed to disagree on the merits of each. During the reception he came up to me and said I was right there is no comparison and he thought Trademark was exceptionally good. They wore the white dinner jackets and black pants which matched the black and white theme of the wedding which made everything seem so coordinated.

Did your future clients make it to the reception to listen to them? There was so much going on I don't think anyone would have seen them.

Thanks again for all your help because without you I don't think we would have found them. Several other couples told us they had them at their daughter's wedding in the past and loved them.

On September 29th in Richmond, Va. we attended a wedding. The Trademark Band played for the wedding reception. They were OUTSTANDING! The band was versatile, musically fabulous, and perfect for the evening. My husband and I, plus many other guests felt that the band was the best one we had ever heard. We wanted to buy a CD, but they did not have one. Just thought you should know how terrific we thought the band was!

Thanks for all your help and insight on picking the right band for our wedding. They were awesome and I couldn't have asked for a better band and performance. Everyone loved Trademark and were consistently asking me who they were etc. Most importantly Rachael and I thought they were fabulous and we will definitely recommend them to others and think about using them again for any other functions suited. James, the band leader, was great to work with and very accommodating when it came to our iPod list. Overall I'd give them a two thumbs up! Thanks again for everything.


Jun 02, 2012

We heard nothing but great things about the band. We people loved them!! Our presenting sponsor even said he was going to book them for an upcoming event he will be having, so that was good to hear. It was nice too also have that interaction with the band. On several numbers they actually had people from the audience on stage with them and that added to the fun. James Carson emailed me first thing this morning to ask about the event. I thought that was a nice touch. We will definitely use Trademark again.

Absolutely we will use Trademark again!!! I have been in this position for 15 years and planned a lot of events. I have never had one where there was people dancing the entire night. With the last band we had, there would be whole songs that no one danced and the same story with a couple of DJs. With Trademark, our colleagues were dancing during dinner and the dance floor stayed full right up to the end. I have heard over and over again about how much everyone enjoyed the band and wished they had played longer.

Trademark was very professional and I honestly can not say enough about them. They were W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L and helped to make our event a huge success! If they need a referral, I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. If you can not guess, I was extremely satisfied.
