We knew we wanted to use Encore as our band ever since we heard them at another wedding. They really know how to get the party started and keep everyone dancing all night. When I told a woman that I was using Encore, she told me they hired them for her daughter’s wedding and they were the best. She was so right!  We used Chuck at Washington Talent.  He always got back to me promptly and was very professional.

You can’t go wrong with Washington Talent or Encore. Trust me!!

ENCORE was absolutely AMAZING!!! You made our reception such a hit! (Scott and I are still humming the James Bond theme song.) All of our friends and relatives are still raving about your performance and I look forward to booking you for future events. You made my girlfriends want to get married just so that they could hire you! Thank you for knowing just what to play at all the right moments!

GAIL SHANTA was our harpist for the ceremony and cocktail hour.  THANK YOU SO MUCH! I absolutely loved working with you. Thank you also for agreeing to play on such short notice and for being such a great sport! Your music was absolutely elegant and perfect.  I will never forget my walk down the aisle. Ladies: “A penny well spent brings content.”

I recently used Washington Talent for my daughter’s wedding. We went with the band Encore and were thrilled with them! They played during the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. The dance floor was never empty.  For the few who did not dance, they went to the tables to make them feel a part of the fun! Their sound is great and their professionalism and ability to read a crowed is over and above. People could not stop raving about them and most importantly, The Bride and Groom were over the top with them. Shana at Washington Talent is the person to use….she is great.

We had the band Encore at our wedding last week and they were absolutely fantastic!!! We booked them after they played at my cousin’s wedding a year ago.  After I saw all of my aunts, uncles, parents and all of the ‘younger’ crowd on the dance floor at the same time, I knew I wanted them to play my wedding.  Encore did SUCH a great job of getting everyone excited and out on the dance floor ALL NIGHT LONG.  They even learned our first dance song for us. Even though we had discussed having no impromptu performances beforehand, my husband’s grandma surprised us by wanting to sing a song and the band was totally OK with that, as well. It was simply an awesome night! I think it helped that we had an awesome group of guests who wanted to dance and party.  Encore totally got the crowd going and I can’t stop raving about them!!! I recommend them to anyone!

Vassil/Knouse Wedding

It seems like a very long time ago that Jen, Craig and I came to see a preview of Encore in the studio. I know that one of the few things people remember about a wedding is the food and the entertainment. Thus, I emphasized to my daughter that the music was very important. So when we heard Encore , we were sold! High energy, talented personable entertainers and musicians, great play list and right-on renditions are just a few of the qualities that made our decision easy. It is no coincidence that we are receiving many kudos after the performance our guests experienced at the Key Bridge Marriott on October 22nd.

Everyone, without exception, commented on the band! We wanted a party atmosphere and you gave us that and more! Even our photographers commented that having experienced many weddings themselves, ours was one of the top events as far as a “fun party wedding”. I think this quote from Maya Angelou sums up our experience with Encore: “… people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”  We wanted our guests to leave feeling that they had had a wonderful evening.   Thanks to all of you, we succeeded even if the only measure was the packed dance floor! To be sure, they will look back on this evening with great fondness. We wish you continued success in the future and we will most certainly do our best to convince prospective clients your way! Thank you again for making our daughter’s wedding a most memorable day for all! Encore ! Encore !

Thank you so much for everything. I can’t even begin to tell you how many rave reviews we had about the band. People were absolutely blown away. We heard from many of our guests that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. You really made an enormous difference. My feet still hurt!! :o) I will definitely recommend Encore to friends!!!! Thank you again – you were outstanding!!!!

ENCORE delivered a knockout on the waterfront at National Harbor!! Partnering with award-winning wedding planner Elizabeth Leibundguth of Cherry Blossom Events and Spencer McCormack of Main Event catering, ENCORE helped Steve and Cailan start their married life together with an incredible evening of dancing and celebration. After a stylishly choreographed first dance to Frank Sinatra’s The Way You Look Tonight, dinner and the special dances for Father/Daughter and Mother/Son to classics You Are The Sunshine of my Life and What a Wonderful World, ENCORE cut it loose! With a dance set weaving a musical tapestry to please everyone, there were hits from the Black Eyed Peas, Michael Jackson, Usher, Rihanna, Earth, Wind & Fire, Lady Gaga, Taio Cruz, Journey, Bon Jovi, Stevie Wonder and many more artists……with the dance floor packed and guests singing along all night. At the end of the night, the guests are all chanting “One More Song”.  Encore brought the house down with the party favorite Shout!
