Goodman Fiske is without a doubt the best band we could have hired for our wedding!

Goodman Fiske is without a doubt the best band we could have hired for our wedding!  It’s been over 2 months and our guests continue to mention the amazingness of the band.  The reason we hired Goodman Fiske is we were looking for something a little different- not the standard 8 piece band that performs a preset, standard wedding playlist (If you’ve been shopping around you know the bands- a couple brass instruments with a singer performing Black Eyed Peas ‘I’ve got a feeling’) .  We wanted a band that felt a little more authentic that our friends and family could sing along and be a part of the experience.

Ryan and the guys were extremely easy to work with and eager to make the night unforgettable.  For example, we envisioned the wedding party coming out to Jock Jams with fake statistics.  It was a small, funny idea that we threw out there.  Ryan took on the challenge, edited the music, and embodied the perfect Jock Jams MC. It meant a lot that they put a personal touch to our day.

The music throughout the night was phenomenal! Goodman Fiske played to everyone in the audience- Motown, Classic Rock, 90’s pops, Today’s Hits – they absolutely killed it! They fed off our guest’s energy and the dance floor was filled the entire night.  We could not be happier with Goodman Fiske and cannot recommend them enough!!!

You will not be disappointed for choosing GMF for your wedding or event!

“Let me start from the beginning….
My parents were on vacation in Key West, saw GMF perform & automatically told me to look them up to see if they do weddings. We weren’t even thinking of having a band for our wedding at first! We then realized they were from the Jersey area and went to see them play in Philly! WOW- my husband and I could not believe how amazing GMF was! We realized GMF was never scheduled in Western PA so we weren’t sure if they would be willing to come to Pittsburgh, but of course they were!

Our wedding day was absolutely amazing. GMF entertained the crowd starting with the bridal introductions and through the whole night! They were extremely professional. Everyone LOVED them & no one wanted the night to end. We really cannot thank GMF enough for everything they did to make our wedding day so special.

You will not be disappointed for choosing GMF for your wedding or event! We’re already thinking how we can have another party just so we can have GMF perform again!

Thank you so much again to Shore Bets (Heather) and GMF for everything!”

If you want a great band, great personalities and an unforgettable wedding reception, GoodMan Fiske is for you!

We are Debbie and Dave, not your typical newlyweds as we are in our late 50’s.  We love GoodMan Fiske shows. Ryan, Gene, John and Alex are so down to earth and so much fun.  We try to catch their gigs whenever we can.  It was a no-brainer to hire them for our wedding last May.  They were awesome as usual, and our guests were dancing all night.  They can and will play any music genre requested, and also have music playing while on their breaks.  If you want a great band, great personalities and an unforgettable wedding reception, GoodMan Fiske is for you!

Hiring Goodman Fiske to play our wedding was the easiest decision my wife and I made..

Hiring Goodman Fiske to play our wedding was the easiest decision my wife and I made when it came to planning our nuptials.   From introductions to the very last second that we had the room, they had all of our guest engaged, entertained, dancing, and having fun.  My father was concerned about the band being too loud, and guests not being able to socialize.  Their sound engineer perfectly matched the output of the band to the size of the room.  Not one person, younger or older, complained about the music being too loud.  The range of songs from Motown to current day gave everyone something to relate to, laugh about, or was the push to get them on the dance floor.  I would tell anyone planning a wedding to book GoodMan Fiske first and then start worrying  about the rest of the wedding plans.  The entertainment should be a no brainer.

These guys rocked the house.

We have been seeing Goodman Fiske play for over 5 years now and every time we went, their shows got better and better. New music. New people. New energy. So when me and my girlfriend got engaged we decided that we didn’t want just a regular wedding DJ. We wanted everyone at our wedding to dance and we knew they would have if it was a DJ but I knew that if we got a band to play, no one would stop dancing. So we decided to hire Goodman Fiske. These guys rocked the house. Watching Ryan and the band interact over the years with the crowd I knew him and the guys were the right choice. He gets off stage and brings the microphone to everyone and let’s them sing along. That’s how you know this guy loves what he does. Everyone that attended our wedding could not stop talking about the band. The music selection was great. They knew what the crowd wanted to hear and that’s what I think makes them a great all round band.
