"We booked Jack Rabbit Slims as our wedding band and we could not have been any happier!! They were extremely accommodating with song requests and even learned a new song for my father and I to dance to! All of our guests (young and old) commented on the great song selection and how entertaining they were. Make sure to book Jack Rabbit Slims for your next event. You will not be disappointed!!" - M. Sellar (Bride), Monroe, LA
"Great band with a wide range of music! Having a live band hands down beats having a DJ. This band is reliable and punctual. It made me have one less thing to worry about on my wedding day.

"We are so happy that we hired Jack Rabbit Slims for our wedding reception! Not only was the music great, but they were also very professional yet engaging with our guests. We danced until we dropped! And, the best part is, the let my 8-year old nephew play the drums for a while! He was so happy, and that was so nice of them. I highly recommend Jack Rabbit Slims for any occassion and will hire them again. Great music, great talent!" - J. Mercer (Bride), West Monroe, LA

"During the multiple phases of wedding planning, as I assume is customary in most weddings, I only had the final say in a few things. JACK RABBIT SLIMS was one of those things and an amazing choice. The entire wedding party loved them as well as my new bride! They learned a couple songs per our request and didn’t turn down any request during the reception. I highly recommend them for any wedding or any other events you may have. I’m looking forward to our next trip to MS/LA so that I can book them again!! Great guys!!" - C. Windham (Groom), Natchez, MS
