"The Essentials really made our wedding!  Everybody was singing and dancing along, the energy was upbeat and fun. No one wanted to leave the dance floor and everyone kept asking "Who's that band?  They're awesome!"  I'm so glad ya'll came, ya'll added an amazing flair to the wedding and made it a night I'll never forget! 

For real though, we had the best time and ya'll were a big part of that. Thank you for making the process so smooth and easy, as you can well imagine, planning a wedding in a space that doesn't usually do weddings was challenging to say the least.  Between you and Luke, I knew I didn't have anything to worry about with the band, thank God!"    
- Amanda, a lovely bride from Lafayette

"The Essentials pack the house every time they play. Their set is not only a live music performance featuring crowd pleasing jams but a full show with gogo dancers and burlesque that never fails to keep the crowds happy."    
- Brian, the booking manager at Maison on Frenchmen

"I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you!!! We received so many compliments on how awesome the band was!! And we thought so too!!! You guys helped make our day that much more special and memorable!!! We really appreciate it!! And we would recommend you guys to anyone! Thanks again!"
- Kristin C.

"We can't overstate how thrilled we were with y'all. Countless guests came up to us raving about the music. Can't thank y'all enough for putting on the best show we could have hoped for. You and the band could not have been more professional, kind or fun throughout the event. I joked to my dad that the best decision I ever made was marrying Amy and the second best was booking The Essentials. So much fun."    
- Danny and Amy, a very fun couple
