Reviews From The Knot Wedding Channel:


Dance Floor Was Packed All Night

"After hearing a number of wedding bands, when we went to hear SYNERGY play, my now-husband and I knew immediately that SYNERGY was going to be our band. They have the perfect energy for generating a great party. Their song list was extensive. They were professional and sounded GREAT. They were able to accommodate us when we wanted to have a song that was not on their list for our first dance. Our dance floor was packed throughout the night, and I have heard from multiple guests that our band was great!"

The Band

"LOVED LOVED LOVED! They had our guests dancing all night! The performers had amazing talent!
We are so glad we chose them!


"I love Synergy! They are such an amazing wedding band! We had such a blast at our wedding with them. They played such a variety of songs and kept everyone on the dance floor all night! The dance floor was literally packed from 8pm til midnight. They were just so great and great to work with! We had never seen Synergy perform prior to our reception but had heard that they were a great wedding band. They did not disappoint. Our guests had a fantastic time and danced all night long. At the end of the day they put on an awesome performance which definitely helped make our wedding a fantastic party."

High-Quality, Energetic Band

"We hired Synergy as our wedding band, and opted for 10-pieces, which included three vocalists. We were more than happy with their performance! All of the singers and other band-members were very talented – they had a very professional, clean sound. The range of the group was impressive – from Sinatra to Black Eyed Peas. Having Synergy, a high-quality, professional band, had a huge impact on the reception. Our guests (and my husband and I), just couldn’t stop dancing! Even at midnight, when things ended, people of all ages were still going strong on the dance floor. The band just provides so much energy that people want to keep going – it made the evening so much fun! I’d highly recommend this band!"

Rockin Band!

"The band did a great job keeping everyone dancing all night! They were phenomenal. Great band everyone loved them!"


Powerful voices

"I knew they were good – but they were REALLY good! 3 singers, all with gorgeous, powerful voices. They really hit the songs well. They knew how to work the crowd and keep the dance floor going. The music quality was superb!"

The Best Band Ever

"I have to say that Synergy was OUT OF THIS world. They were so amazing, they made my reception.  All 250 of our guests literally stayed until the reception was over @1:00am because the band was sooo good. Everyone danced. All of our guests commented on how great they were and that it was the best band they had ever heard at a reception, hands down. Dick Whitbeck is a dream to work with and so talented. We had three singers and a 10 piece band. You can choose the size of the band and he will create it for your perfect day!"

Rave Reviews

"Wow! You and your band are AMAZING!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you for playing at our wedding reception! I can't even tell you the number of people who were commenting on the awesomeness of your band. We heard nothing but rave reviews!!!! And a big thank you for being so flexible. I'm very sorry that we were so behind schedule. Because of the rain at our ceremony, we ended up doing a makeshift receiving line at the Dellwood which then backed everything up. Thanks so very much for your flexibility. Dick, I can't thank you enough. Thanks for making the night so special and memorable with your amazing music. Many thanks, Alecia and Matt Thank you for providing such truly amazing music for us and our guests! I got so many comments, from other accomplished musicians and everyone about how fantastic your band is. Thank you. And if Jenna ever wants to come shadow us, the invitation is open." Thank you again for everything! Stephanie

Fabulous Evening

"I am about to write thank you notes to all of my favorite vendors (which are all of the ones I chose) and thank them for a fabulous evening!! Look for your note in the mail this week! You were such a big help to me during the process! Is there a wedding website I can give a positive review for Synergy?" So pleased with the band! Patti

We Loved The Songs

"Thank you so much for helping to make our reception amazing! We loved all the songs you played and had such fun dancing all night! We’ve had a lot of comments about how great the band was!" Thanks so much! Ellen & Craig

The Crowd Went Absolutely Wild

"It has taken us at least a week to recover. Wanted to tell you that Synergy was fantastic. It all seems like kind of a blur now, but you need to know how much we appreciated your band coming up here. I hope the experience was good for them. The crowd went absolutely wild. The pro football players and the others partied like no other wedding (Christina says). I just hope they weren't too wild since the band was pretty close to the revelers. I could not believe they took their shirts off! I really don't know how our wedding staff got enough power to you, but it all seemed to come off so well. If you and your wife are ever in the area, please come in for a 5 drink and we would be delighted to give your wife a tour of the place since you are into antiques and the past."

Better Than The Original

"Have a great and hopefully profitable summer. The singers were so great. "Islands in the Stream" was just beautiful! Better than the original recording. Hope to hear your band again someday!" Warm regards, Susan

The Playlist Was Perfect

This Band Is Phenomenal!

"I just had to write and say how much we enjoyed Synergy at the Kadlec wedding. This band is phenomenal! Their music selections provide music of interest to every age group, 18 to 80. They know how to keep the party engaged, and truly perform to the highest standards. You cannot tell a Synergy performance from the real artist. The voices are phenomenal along with the extremely talented musicians, the sax was awesome! They were fun to sit and watch as well as dance to. A very, very enjoyable evening." Thank you. Julie House
