“You’re probably reading other reviews, thinking “sure, everyone says their band is amazing” – but no, David is truly in a league of his own!”

 – Chelsea and JD

You know how important music is for your wedding, but you’ve never hired a band before. The quality of music and how much fun your guests have is what they’ll remember the most. You only get one chance to get it right. It’s stressful! Don’t worry. We’re here to help you with all your music. While there are lots of options out there, we’re a very different music company. We only care about helping you get the music and schedule that’s right for you!  I started DRS Music 23 years ago because I felt you should get a wedding band that’s focused on who you are and what important to you, not just following fads or trends. We’ll give you the perfect music by playing the songs you love for your ceremony and reception. We’ll pack your dance floor, take care of all your announcements, add lots of personal touches and so much more.

“The band is incredible! My family and friends are very tough critics when it comes to live music, and so many of our guests went out of their way to tell us how much they loved the band.”

– Clare and John

There are many aspects to your wedding, but dancing is what you and your guests will remember the most about your big day. We know how to get and keep everyone dancing all night! Just look at the photos from recent weddings.

"I love live music and knew I wanted a band versus DJ for my wedding. I was recommended DRM and am so happy with how the night went. David scheduled a phone call with me to go over the different options we had for our wedding. We went with a package that had a classical duo during our ceremony, jazz trio during cocktail hour, and a 10 piece orchestra during the reception with David as the emcee and a DJ too. During the planning process, David had a ton of availability to meet with us and answer any questions I had. His band was able to learn new songs for our wedding and he had tons of suggestions for how our night could run smoothly. The ceremony director, Alex, was able to take all my notes and help my ceremony vision come to life. The musicians learned a song on the piano, and they were able to have my step sister sing the processional. The timing was perfect and it played out exactly how I pictured. The reception dance floor was packed all night long! The band played old songs, new songs, etc. The perfect combo to get everyone up and dancing. They even surprised my husband and I who are both teachers with a chalkboard for guests to sign, what a great memory! DRM played such a huge part in making our night memorable and so much fun, I highly recommend!"

We'll Give You Much More Than Just

We'll Give You More Than Just

Most music companies give you their very lowest price which seems very tempting at first. Then once you sign up, they charge you for an MC, special requests, wireless mics, scheduling help, stage lights and many more things. They take advantage of the fact that haven’t booked a band before.  It seems like a bargain but you’ll end up paying more and getting worse results. Imagine buying a car then being told you’ll now need to buy a steering wheel and brakes.

We’re much more honest. Our pricing packet includes everything you’ll need to get the best results for your wedding!

We'll Create a Free Personalized Gift
Which All Your Guests Will Sign

We feel it’s important to get to know you more than just the details of your wedding. Your wedding is about who you are as a couple. What makes you unique? What do you like to do together? How did you meet?  While other bands treat you like a date on their calendar we treat you like friends. The gift we create for you is based on something special about you.  Once all your guests sign it, you’ll have an authentic memory from your wedding!

My grandparents were married 72 years. He used to bring her a flower from the garden every day. I started this program I call “Share Your Love” in 2007 as a tribute to their amazing marriage. After your wedding, I will load up a portion of your flowers to my car and donate them the next morning to a nursing home or homeless shelter. It’s a free, easy way to share your beautiful flowers with those who are most in need.
