Hello Music Lovers!

Just wanted to rave about how awesome these guys are!

They recently played our wedding reception in Pembroke Ontario. While our day was amazing in every way, I can honestly say that these guys brought it to another level.

They played a little bit of everything which, is exactly what we asked. They took many of our requests and even went out of their way to learn a number of our favourite songs! We thought that maybe they'd have time to learn one of the songs we requested but, as far as I can tell, they took the time to learn more than a handful.
My wife could not wait to see them play Under Pressure and they absolutely nailed it. They nailed everything!

Here are some examples of them going above and beyond:
-After they had played their last song, I asked them to play one more (a request from a guest who was having a birthday). They played at least 3 more, including a 5 or 6 song medley!
-One of our guests is a talented guitarist and country music singer. He is in his early teens and had not really ever played in a band. He asked and the Dead Pennies let him play a few songs with them. He was super great and the band did an amazing job integrating him into their set(s). (Thank you for helping one of our guests have such a cool experience)

It has now been weeks since our wedding and Dead Pennies is the first thing all of our guests mention when reminiscing about our wedding. Everyone was up dancing! Everyone was up laughing! People I have never seen even tapping their foot were on the dance floor all night.

The band was funny, unbelievably friendly, super accommodating and I cannot recommend them enough.

Please go see these guys rock out. If you need an awesome band to really turn up the experience level for your live event, Dead Pennies are a sure thing.

Thanks Dead Pennies for an amazing time!
