shake your groove thang
If you're not dancing, we're not doing it right. But believe, us... you will be dancing. With back-to-back-to-back years as Austin's first choice in party band, 100 gigs a year, tons of great reviews and winner of the 2018 Wedding Wire Couple's Choice Award, Matchmaker guarantees your best party ever.
Matchmaker Band was formed in 2008 in Austin, TX because we knew that people needed a little more funk and soul in their lives. Who doesn't want to shake it to Stevie Wonder, Tina Turner, Van Morrison and Michael Jackson?
We love music. We love this music. And we love performing it for people. When you bring us to your event, we know your guests will love it, too.

Wow! What an incredible party and performance. People keep asking me "Who was the band?" "Where are they from?" Best wedding band I've ever heard!" I guess the best compliment is when the bride tells you "Daddy, I don't want this to end."Thanks to all of you for making such a memorable evening for all of us.

"We can't quite express how unbelievably perfect our wedding was. You guys KILLED IT and we are so thankful for the countless hours you put into your craft. We have heard many times since Saturday that y'all were the greatest wedding band our guests had seen. We so truly appreciate everything you did for us - coordinated the ceremony music, played a perfect dinner set, MC'd the whole night, learned our first dance song, and put on THE BEST dance party ever. The videos our guests have are amazing so we will make sure to send them your way. Eric and I are still on top of the world and we want to thank you so much for being a part of our day. It wouldn't have been the same without the Matchmaker Band!!"

"This band is worth every penny and more!! They were seriously the highlight of our wedding!! Everyone could not stop talking about them. My grandma even stayed up until midnight and couldn't wait to hug them after! They rock the house and have so much energy. You would think doing this every weekend they would get a little worn out but they came in guns blazing and put on an amazing show. I feel so lucky to have had them!! Their trumpet player is amazing as well! He did our ceremony music which was modern songs played on a solo trumpet and he killed it. Cannot recoMmend these guys enough!!"
-- Jennifer (Bride)
"I'll hit 500 hundred weddings at the end of this year and rarely does a wedding have me smiling from ear to ear the way I was last weekend. I actually took a picture of the empty chairs (and tweeted it!) because literally everyone was on the dance floor. The mother of the bride said the second line send-off was "epic"! You make the planning portion easy and fun! You're always so attentive to the details and WANT to get it all right. You made one couple incredibly happy. And one happy planner, too!"
-- Diana (Coordinator)
"Matchmaker played at my daughter's wedding this weekend and the music was definitely a highlight! The bride and groom love Motown music but also country and pop and there was a perfect blend of new (Uptown Funk) and old (Shout and At Last). We continue to get emails and calls about how amazing they were and comments include "Best Wedding Ever!" and "I want to wedding crash every wedding they play at!" I'm just sad that I only have one daughter to marry because I would definitely book them again. Very entertaining, got the crowd involved. Plan early because they book up fast! You will not be disappointed!!!"
-- Cindy (Mother of Bride)
"What can I say? The band made the night! From the moment y'all began playing until the last song people were on the dance floor. Thank you for making my daughter's night spectacular. You were so easy to work with - very responsive, that is so important in your business! Thank you and your entire band and crew for an amazing evening!"
-- Renee (Mother of bride)
"That undoubtedly was one of the finest performances I have had from a band at one of my weddings. You all were great, you were terrific!"
-- Rita (Wedding Coordinator)
"My wife Anna and I just had the honor and privilege of getting married yesterday and I can think of no better way to celebrate than with Matchmaker Band. Their musicianship was flawless and their stage performance was incredibly and contagiously energetic. It was clearly evident that each and every member of the band has a passion for the music they love and that comes across with every song they play. If you're reading this and are curious about having them play for you, do it. Book them for all of the things forever because this incredibly talented group of people will make your day a million times better. From the bottom of our hearts thank you so very much."
