What people say about us
Having the Bill Sargent Band play for our wedding was amazing! Bill was wonderful to work with- professional, accommodating, and helpful. The band did a great job playing a variety of styles to get people out of their seats and on the dance floor. Our guests were blown away and still talk about how awesome it was to have a live band! It was such a great wedding and a large part of that is due to the wonderful work of Bill Sargent Bands!
It was so so good working with Bill – absolutely no regrets hiring Bill Sargent Bands for our special day! Bill added several of my requested songs to his band’s playbook, stayed in touch, and kept everyone moving on the dance floor! So fun for people of all ages, all of our friends and family loved listening and dancing to a live band!
Bill and his band were outstanding! From our first call to the actual date, the process was handled so genuinely and professionally and easily. Bill collaborated with us to integrate our vision, our dreams and our faith into our music selection and atmosphere. Bill was great at enhancing and making suggestions to help us create the most special and wonderful day of our lives. The musicians were so very professional, warm, inviting and so incredibly talented. They touched our hearts and that of our guests with their skill and demeanor. They created a most unforgettable day and we have a picture of each one of them and their instruments in our keeping. He made our day full of faith, and fun and wonderful romantic classics.
The Bill Sargent Band played at our daughter’s wedding this year and they were great. We had many compliments from our guests and the music was at just the right volume where we could all have a nice conversation without yelling into one-another’s ear. We had their piano player play during dinner which created a great ambiance. The singer and horn players added another dimension that capped everything off. Don’t even think of hiring a DJ for an occasion like this. You’ll never forget it!
We went with a vintage-style wedding, and my husband and I both really enjoy this style of music. We thought the band did an amazing job! Even the wedding guests who didn’t know how to dance to this style of music had nothing but compliments — the band was a hit!
We hired the Bill Sargent Big Band to play at our wedding reception. We, and our guests, had a wonderful time! I cannot possibly count how many of our guests told us, and are still telling us months later, how much they enjoyed the MUSIC at our reception. Hiring the Bill Sargent Big Band was one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding. Thanks Bill!
Perfect band for an upscale wedding! They were able to play softer music during dinner and then get everyone of all ages out on the dance floor later. They were easy to work with and you have different options with songs and size of band. Choosing a band over a DJ was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding and I would HIGHLY recommend The Bill Sargent Band!
They were very professional and flexible and provided much better entertainment than a traditional dj service. They helped make the day memorable. I wouldn’t have changed this at all. I would definitely recommend the Bill Sargent Bands to anyone who is looking to have live music at their event.
Your band was absolutely fabulous on Saturday night! Dan and I were so pleased with your friendly, professional demeanor. Your players exuded everything we could have asked for and we truly thank you for putting such a fantastic group of people together.
Your music honestly made the night so grand for us and our guests. Even our 15 year old son put the entire CD on his iPod on Sunday! You just can’t beat that!! I’m also getting calls from our guests about how awesome your group played and how it pulled the whole night together.
Bill, it was a true pleasure to meet you and have you be the outstanding part of our anniversary party. I hope we’ll be able to meet up with you again some day. Thank you so much!
Our company held a luncheon boat cruise for our 50 employees, and decided to bring in some live music. After perusing the web for a Jazz or Dixieland band, I contacted Bill Sargent to inquire as to what he had available. We discussed my budget & determined that a 3 piece jazz band was best suited to my needs. Knowing that trying to entertain a small group of co-workers is a difficult task, I requested that the music be all lively, familiar & up tempo. Bill’s band delivered on all counts. They were professional, well dressed, and very, very good! When our schedule changed a bit, making an earlier start time for the band preferable, the band complied without question & started 20 minutes early.
The flexibility of having so many different musical styles & band sizes available, along with the quality musicianship, makes Bill Sargent Bands a no brainer in my book. I would not hesitate to contact them again for my live music needs.
I would like to extend my sincerest appreciation for the excellent performance of your . . . ensemble at my wedding reception at North Hills Country Club . . . Your band’s professionalism was exceeded only by your admirable talent and personal warmth. So many of our guests expressed their praise for your contribution to our special day that it is certainly amazing how you can touch persons of such varied backgrounds and tastes. I have received so many compliments on your music that I felt that I should pass some of this praise on to you. My only regret is that I must summarize these compliments , rather than enumerate them. I have you and your band reserved for my 25th anniversary.
Thank you so much for making our Junior Senior Banquet at the Milwaukee County Historical Society a resounding success. Your artfully-crafted music set the tone and rhythm for the entire night’s allure. The band put on an energetic show that heightened everyone’s sense of enjoyment. We especially appreciated the Christian tone you crafted into the swing music. You reacted well with the high school audience and found ways to connect with them on a common level. Your professionalism was shown through your skill and your passion for musical excellence impressed us all.
Once again, thank you for your part in making this event a huge success.
They were professional. On time. And their music was outstanding! My guests had an amazing time and complemented me on my choice of music for our reception.
Wow! That was the first standing ovation the students have given an assembly all year!
