Absolutely Incredible – Highly Recommend Shimmer exceeded our expectations and made our wedding night THE BEST! Their talent is exceptional, extremely fun and engaging, and very professional. Would recommend them 100%! We and all of our guests can’t stop talking about how incredible they were! – Claire , married on 04/09/2022
Oh my gosh. Shimmer was the HIGHLIGHT of our reception. We had never heard them play in person and chose them solely based on their sizzle reel (and because we thought they were a great value) – decent-sized ensemble and good variety in their music for a fair price. They BLEW US AWAY. I would recommend them 1,000 times over and have shared their name with so many of our guests! Every single time a guest talks to us about our wedding, they always mention how great our band was! We obviously thought they would be good or we wouldn’t have hired them, but their ability to read the room, play music the crowd was feeling, and just generally KILL IT was astounding for the price. I did not want the night to end! I absolutely recommend Shimmer for any wedding or event, you will not regret it!!!! – Meredith M. , married on 01/08/2022
The Shimmer band did an amazing job! We really, really enjoyed them. And we have received a lot of feedback from guests who have said that they had a great sound. They got our group up and dancing and we had a wonderful party. Please know that we highly recommend them – Pam T, Married Dec 04, 2021
Shimmer band was amazing – they kept the dance floor full the entire night, were so easy to work with and so accommodating. Nicki and I both said we need to remember to refer them more often, it had been a few years since we had worked with them! – Collins Korman Events, Sep 18, 2021
The band was absolutely amazing- they could not have been better or easier to work with. When I have told friends that I spoke to Jay so many times prior to the event and that he asked so many questions to make sure everything was perfect they have been shocked at how hands on they were. The whole flow of their sets was perfect- everyone was dancing the whole time and I would recommend them to anyone!! -Rebecca, May 01, 2021
I don’t even know where to begin. Shimmer was amazing on Saturday!!!! I honestly lost count of how many people asked me, “where did you find this band!?!” I gave very minimal direction on the setlist and they killed it. They read the room and knew exactly what to play. I couldn’t leave the dance floor! We had the most amazing time! Thank you for everything! – Chelsea- Bride, Mar 20, 2021
Thanks for following up….Shimmer was EXCELLENT and far exceeded our expectations!…our guests had a great time and we have received many compliments It was an unforgettable evening. – John, Wedding, Dec 12, 2020
The band was GREAT! All of my guests commented on the quality and variety of music played at my daughter's wedding. My wife and I heard the band at a wedding four years ago and said then that they were the band for our daughter when she got married. You guys did a fantastic job and, if the need arises, we will use the Shimmer band again. Thank you very much for making the wedding reception special. – Debra K. , married on 10/02/2021
Perfect Wedding ❤️ My daughter recently got married at The Barn of Chapel Hill, great venue I might add…But the band Shimmer was awesome! The dance floor was full all night!!!

Incredible band. We hired Shimmer Band for my recent wedding and they were absolutely incredible. Not only were they incredible responsive and helpful during the planning process, but their performance was nothing short of AMAZING! They kept our guests dancing the entire time and played a perfect mix of songs. We are STILL hearing from our guests how great they were. They made the night. 10/10 would recommend Shimmer!!!!!!

The best vendor of my wedding! Guests still talking about SHIMMER! WOW! Shimmer was by far the best vendor from my wedding. Not only were they amazing and timely with communication, they were able to customize songs and preferences for my father/daughter dance. Jay was a pleasure to work with! They also allowed our best man to play the harmonica with them on stage to Piano Man. My venue, The Omni Hotel, immediately wanted to hire them for future parties. I will forever compare all wedding bands to Shimmer, and none will come close to comparing!! I can’t recommend this band enough.
You were fantastic. I really enjoyed working with you. Thank you so much for helping to make my daughters wedding so memorable.
Mother of the Bride
I cannot say enough wonderful things about how incredible Shimmer was at our reception. We heard from many of our guests that Shimmer was the best band they’d ever heard at a wedding. They were easy to work with, and Jay made sure everything was exactly how we wanted it to be for our event. They involved the crowd the entire night which I know our guests loved, and thought it was really fun how they invited the bridal party up on stage for one of the songs. The dance floor was packed the entire night. They helped make our reception everything we could’ve hoped for and more for our special day. I will certainly recommend you to any friends I hear of looking for entertainment for an event.
Shimmer was FABULOUS! They were a joy to work with and everyone enjoyed them very much. I’d love to use them again.
Shimmer KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!!! I have no words and the crowd was blown away as was the client. I did let Jay know how happy they all were.
Wow!!!! It was an extreme pleasure to work with you and Shimmer Band a couple Saturdays ago at Lowndes Grove Plantation. You all are incredible musicians!!! I have worked with a lot of individual musicians and bands, and I must admit that working with you was one of the best experiences I have ever had with a group of musicians. Not only are you all some of the best in the business, but your responsiveness, thoroughness, and willingness to speak with me made my experience that much better. I cannot thank you enough! Please extend my gratitude to the rest of the members, and know that Kelly and David had the time of their lives. Here’s to an exceptional Spring, and kudos to you all for being a bad-ass group of musicians. Y’all rock! Many thanks again for all that you do, and I hope to work together again in the future!
Honestly, choosing Shimmer for our band was one of the best if not the best vendor-related decisions we made. We truly LOVED them – from how they MC’d the night, to their crazy good talent, to putting up with all of our special requests, they truly made the reception so special. I was dead set to have a live band, and couldn’t have made a better choice. We’ve received so many compliments from our guests about how much they dug the band too, and how much fun they had dancing the night away. I would wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone wanting live music for any event!
