Not enough adjectives to describe how great they were/are. Professional, Courteous, Punctual, Talented at the Highest Level. High energy, knew when to pull it down (dinner) when to ramp it back up and keep everyone dancing. And they kept dancing! My feet and back are still pretty sore and that is a good sign. See you again at Christmas! Never worry about the music when we have West Coast on the job!
The band was great! High energy and kept everyone dancing. Behind the scenes they were extremely professional as well, set up on time, took the appropriate amount of time for breaks and worked very well with me on the timing of everything. A huge thank you to them all.
Cant wait for the next one!
You are the bomb, my friend. Saturday night was magical. The cocktail hour piano and bass perfect, Hamilton so timely and a huge hit with our guests and the band and Papa G exactly as you represented....energetic, non stop and very danceable. Honestly, I was overwhelmed at the response. Thank you, Jim, for your guidance, advice and especially for overseeing the entire evening. I could not be more pleased.
Thank you, thank you.

Play had the crowd up and dancing before they even started eating their salads! Then they cooled things down, kept it nice and quiet through entrée, and have had the dance floor full since that time. Great people, great music, love them and can’t wait to have them back again!
Thank you so much!
WCM All Stars were fantastic! It was a pleasure to work with them and our guests seemed to thoroughly enjoy the music.

I want to thank everyone in your organization but would personally like to thank Sean and each member of the band for making the evening so amazing. Their energy and sound was outstanding matched only by their professionalism and total class.
What an amazing night. Thanks to all!

I do not have the words to explain how wonderful the band was for my daughter's wedding. Their voices-incredible, stage presence-mesmerizing, talent-off the charts, songs-exceeded all expectations, ability to deal with a bunch of drunk idiots-professional. The fact that they took the time to learn the songs Kelsey and Drew had asked for, was very impressive. Brittney Spears songs were a hit! The entire evening was strikingly magical and their music was the icing on the cake. I am so glad I took the time to stop, watch and listen to them and appreciate the professional talent that entertained my guests. Many thanks to them for allowing Uncle Jeff to be a part of the first dance song. This meant so much to the Kittleson family. Many, many thanks to the entire band and many, many apologies for the two boys trying to do Karaoke with them and especially for the over the top, one person, sexually explicit dance moves who was in his own little world. But I am sure they have seen almost everything.
All I can say is "Wow, Play surpassed all our expectations and delivered a memorable and unforgettable evening of beautifully played music. Their skillful voices captivated our guests. The band's first-rate talent is capable of singing songs from any genre and the delivery was flawless. I will never forget the bride and groom's happy smiles as they danced to their favorite music with their friends. Thank you.
Please forward my gratitude to the band,
Proud Mother of the Bride
"The String quartet was amazing. PLAY! is the best wedding band ever. If anyone ever wants a review or wants to talk to someone about PLAY! please have them call me. Literally the best band I've ever heard. At least 50 people told me that as well. Would hire again for any event."
Thanks Jim for a truly great day.
The band. One word. INCREDIBLE! It was such a pleasure working with them and I will absolutely continue to recommend– a great band makes such a big difference and I have to say that PLAY! Was so easy to work with and all the guests celebrated every spare moment on the dance floor.
"The event was really beautiful, and the musicians added a lot to the evening. Especially great was the gentleman who played guitar with the pianist during the ceremony - very professional and great attitude and energy!"
Fun group! Everyone had a wonderful time. The band was very easy to work with.
To quote the late Lawrence Welk....
Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!!!!
I just wanted to say an enormous thank you to all of you and PLAY! for doing such an incredible job at our Smoke Tree Ranch wedding on Saturday. I can't even begin to tell you how much fun I had, and it's impossible to keep track of all of the guests who have come up to us to rave about the band. They were so, so awesome. We really, really appreciate all the work they did to learn several new songs. And it's unreal how they sound even better than many of the artists they cover. They had a ton of energy and really made the party. The night went by in a blur for me, but I'm so glad I was able to spend a huge amount of it on the dance floor!! So. much. fun.!!!
In the craziness of the night I didn't get a chance to personally thank each of the band members, so please convey my gratitude and admiration to them! They are just awesome.
Thank you so so much!!
Everyone LOVED the music ~ Everyone was dancing right up until the end and we raised a record-breaking 1.25 million - all to support foster children and their advocacy in San Diego!
Thank you again for being part of Starry Starry Night and Voices for Children!

Thank you again for all your help and getting everything situated. West Coast did an amazing job and everyone LOVED the band, they couldn't stop dancing.
Everything was perfect, we were right on schedule w/the timeline, and some point, we were even ahead.
Thanks again, look forward to working with the West Coast team again.
Thomas Bui - Coordinator
While I know I speak for both me and my brand new wife, I'll also grab the mic as the sound nerd of the two of us to say: your work was extraordinary. Play! was amazing, their integration into our meal and the flow of toasts worked brilliantly, and the sound throughout - ceremony through reception - was exceptional. Thank you for the brilliant work.
Mr. & Mrs. Klein
We just wanted to let you and Jim know, just how much we truly enjoyed the band/music on our special day!!! It was incredible!!!! Not only were Steve and I completely amazed by how great the music sounded, we had many guests comment in very positive ways as well. EVERYONE enjoyed the entertainment provided by WCM!!!! Please let Jim know how much we appreciated all his help with planing our event. West Coast Music definitely nailed it!!!!!

We are still in awe of the amazing night West Coast Music created for our Wedding. We are still receiving compliments about how wonderful Play! was. They were absolutely perfect and helped to make our wedding the best night ever! They got the crowd going and had the entire wedding on the dance floor the whole night! We are thrilled with how everything turned out and we truly cannot thank you enough! We had an amazing time at our wedding! It was a true pleasure to work with the entire West Coast Music team. We hope you are around when we have children one day and they get married!
Jaynee - Bride
The band was FANTASTIC! They were on time, set up and played their hearts out! The guests, bride & groom and myself LOVED them. I look forward to the next time with Play! and would highly recommend them and you to my other clients.
Thank you again for your attention to detail.
All my best,
Alexandra - Event Planner
Just wanted to say thank you. The band was incredible and did such a great job. We had so much fun. As usual, you never disappoint!
Sound was great! Sean was awesome to work with - I love Play!!!!!
Paula - Event Planner
It was a pleasure meeting you last night and I'm still blown away by surprises you brought us without much notice. Your band and the gentlemen in the zoot suits singing with Dan McGinnis made the party a real success.
I have had three friends ask for your name for parties they are throwing this summer, and my co-hosts want to bring Black List back for next year's Rendezvous.
You and your company were wonderful to deal with and I'll look forward to seeing you again at the next Vintage party.
The band was terrific!! We had an exceptional time and the energy was amazing. Thank you so much!
We had so much fun. They were amazing!!! We will recommend them to everyone. Thank you!
FANTASTIC. Everyone loved them!!!!!
Robert T. Simon
PLAY! was the absolute perfect and best choice we could have made for music at our wedding. They were entertaining and just all around fantastic. All of our guests, were raving about the band. We have even had requests for our playlist! Thank you and Jim so much for everything. I don't know if you can get word to Blacklist, but I wanted to thank them again for learning "My Wish". It was the perfect touch for our family and bridal party dance.
Thank you so much again, and we are already trying to come up with another 'party' so we can work with you again!!
Kristin & Nick Nino
The band and sound team were fabulous, truly a pleasure to work with! I would love to work with them both again. Stay in touch.
Rebecca Feeney - Custom Event Group
I loved the band and so did everyone else! The music selection was perfect and all ages were out on the dance floor!! I will definitely be using them again. I have been receiving phone calls and e-mails for three days now raving about the party and every one mentions the band first.
Sheryl White - Co-chair of MOCA, San Diego
I would like to thank you so much for everything! Our wedding was absolutely amazing......thanks to your wonderful band!! They were phenomenal!! Everyone was asking who the band was and where they were from, etc. The band played perfectly for our guests. Everything flowed perfectly and they were great with all of our guests and the children too! Thanks again for all your help with the planning and coordinating of the schedule. We hope to have another excuse to use you guys in the future! Maybe for our children's weddings someday!
All my Best,
Lindy and I want to thank you for recommending we work with Play! for our wedding. They were truly outstanding. Everyone at the wedding couldn't believe how great they were (we even heard the same from people not at the wedding). They knew the right things to play at the right time, sounded amazing, had enthusiasm and played music that was very current (too our surprise!) and in line with what we indicated we liked. I would recommend people work with you and Play! every time.
I wanted to tell you how great the band was last night. Everyone was raving what a great band, the music kept the party rocking. Sean was totally professional and fantastic to work with.
Please thank the band again for me for a wonderful night of music. Everyone loved them. It was such a nice night under the stars with good food, good friends and great music.
The band was FANTASTIC!!! They were absolutely amazing. We have received countless compliments. People said it was the best wedding they had ever been to because the band was that great. They loved how they started off with the high energy dance set and the first song being by The Black Eyed Peas. People said that they had never seen so many people dance right from the start. The Motown Quartet was also such a perfect add in. They appealed to all ages and they were all such amazing singers. People said they forgot they were at a wedding because it felt like a concert. These were the exact responses we were hoping to receive and we got them.
Thank you again for providing such an amazing band. I am hoping someone I know will have them for an event so I can see them perform again!!
I wanted to send a quick note to thank Play! SO much for their performance at our wedding. They were absolutely incredible and every one of our guests raved about them. The ceremony songs were beautiful and the cocktail hour music was perfect. They set the mood and did an amazing job with getting people on their feet, and keeping them on the dance floor at the reception. Heather and I wanted to express our sincere appreciation for the band learning the songs we chose; we know that they put in a great effort in preparing for our day.
Please extend our thanks to them for helping to make our wedding such a fun and memorable experience. They were AWESOME and we will recommend them to all of our friends!
Michael and Heather Capuzzi
Play! was fantastic! They were everything we were hoping for and more. I spoke with them during their break and expressed these thoughts as well. Based on this experience and the 2 previous weddings that utilized West Coast Music bands, I will happily recommend your services to any and all. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding one of the best parties that I could ever imagine!"
Dear Jim & Play!,
I can't tell what an AMAZING time we had at our wedding. I'm still having friends and family call me saying we had the best band ever! From the first song they played the entire wedding was on the dance floor. Jim, your team was total perfection! Thank you for all your help.
wow wow wow! Play! was so amazing! and here's why.. each singer was so special and that made the music super versatile, every song was not good but great, people danced all night and i mean that, the band was so present, everytime we looked up they were looking at us! there was a ton of eye contact and not the creepy kind! from the 'kids' to the abuelos, we loved the band! thanks so much for making our son's wedding a ball really... all the best, we wish we had more weddings to give in LA..
Laurie & Roberto Tuchman
Just wanted to let you know that the Tuchman-King wedding went GREAT. The band was the highlight of the evening, and everyone LOVED them! They rocked the house, and the guests didn't want to stop the party!! Thank you, thank you... As always, a HUGE sucess.
Trisha Haner, The Hidden Garden
The event was a complete success. And the band made it. They were great; people were dancing until 12am. Sean was the perfect co-MC who worked well with our guy. Can't wait to work with you again..
