BEST BAND EVER!! These guys are AMAZING! If they are available for your date, book them – don’t even hesitate. All of our guests had a great time and were dancing the entire night. They played all the most popular hits and then did fun 70s, 80s and country sets as well. I didn’t want the night to end. They sounded incredible and were so full of energy – I wish I could have them every weekend!!!

The River Town Band is AMAZING! We booked them on recommendation from our wedding planners and it was the best decision we made! Our guests LOVED the live music. It really made our wedding so much more fun and entertaining for everyone! They are incredible performers! The performed our first dance live which we loved. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this band! BOOK THEM!

Thank you again for everything! You truly made our Reception amazing and as my mom said “made the rain go away”. We had the BEST time and we had tons of guests tell us you were the best wedding band they had ever seen. We can’t thank you enough for making it a party everyone will always remember.

Just wanted to extend my gratitude for you and your bands hard work for our wedding. We had a great time! To a person everyone was very complementary of your band.

Greg Marshall – Groom







We are getting lots of great feedback on your band and would like to rebook for next year!

People here in Virginia are still talking about how great you all were! You all made such a wonderful night even more special! THANK YOU!

I am so happy to have worked with you at my wedding! You guys were great. I really appreciate the band literally rolling with the punches and setting up in a different location at the last minute to make my outdoor wedding a reality! It worked out perfectly and I’m really glad that I stuck with my gut feeling that it would NOT rain during and after the ceremony. Our guests have been raving about how great you guys sounded and how much fun they had dancing. Even though the dance floor was wet from rain earlier in the day, that did not stop our guests from dancing nonstop! I really enjoyed working with Scott in the months before to make sure everything was just the way we wanted. I will definitely recommend them to everyone I know having any kind of party in the Jacksonville area.

Dear RiverTown Band,

We thank you for your support of the Rotaract Club of Florida’s First Coast’s ninth annual Black Tie and Blue Jeans Gala. Your performance was very much enjoyed by the guests at the Gala. Thanks to the kindness of our vendors, including you, we were able to give a donation of over $23,000 to the Morning Star School. We hope to work with your band again in the future.

The Rivertown Band did not “Just” play and sing music, they orchestrated the tone of our event which gave the guests and my husband and I an experience of a lifetime! I’m from Nashville TN so I’m very picky about live music – I really didn’t expect to receive a big city performance experience from a local Jacksonville band, these guys could easily go pro-recording to a lable if they wanted too. I can’t imagine what else they could have done to top the performance that they gave! Equipment to talent these guys were on their game!

We hired the RiverTown Band for our wedding two years ago and they were great. They played the songs we wanted, opened with a nice jazzy instrumental for the first 30 minutes so our guests could talk and get food and drinks without dance music happening. Then they played some great dance music. Fun was had by all. I would highly recommend using the RiverTown band for your next party.

When my wife Brittany and I were looking for a band to perform at our wedding, we were looking for top of the line musicians who understood the importance of the evening. RiverTown was a perfect fit from start to finish. They played a great variety of songs that had the people on there feet and dancing whether it was fast or slow. Our night just wouldn’t have been the same without this excellent band!

We had the pleasure of having the River Town Band perform at my daughters debutante party this past December. We began working with them in the fall selecting songs and giving them our requests in which they gladly learned for our party. The band played all types of music for our guest to enjoy. Compliments about the band were positive by those who were there. The girls along with our guest had a wonderful time singing and dancing the night away. I would encourage anyone who is looking to hire a band for their special occasion to look no farther than here.

Lilli Behrens







When my husband and I were planning our wedding, we wanted a band that would fit our personality. The first time we heard The River Town Band, we knew they were perfect for our special day. The River Town Band was amazing to work with, and they catered to our every need. Plus, our guest LOVED them! They were perfect for our guests, and played music that fit every age group. We would highly recommend using The River Town Band at your next event.

I spent quite a bit of time searching for a band to perform at my daughter’s wedding. I was looking for a band that could play music that was familiar to guests from ages 16 to 60. I wanted a band that could keep the party alive, but also make announcements at the appropriate time (wedding party arrival, cake cutting, etc). I was not satisfied with the options locally in Tallahassee, and began an Internet search. After reviewing hours of band clips on the Internet, I selected The Rivertown Band. I was a bit nervous choosing a band from out of town, and one I had not seen perform live. However, I could not have made a better selection.

My wife and I drove to Jacksonville and met with Scott Coleman, the band leader. We were immediately put at ease by his relaxed demeanor and flexibility. We hired the band on the spot. Thereafter, I exchanged a few emails with Scott and had a couple of conversations with him. He made suggestions along the way that were very helpful.

On the wedding day, my biggest fear was that one of the vendors (bartender, photographer, videographer, band) was not going to show up. However, everything fell into place. The band arrived early and began setting up. They brought all the lights and sound with them. Each band member was cheerful and happy to be there. Their professionalism was evident. Not only were they great musicians, but they were comfortable in the setting. The band played the right mix of music to keep the party going, interacted with the guests (including getting me on stage with sunglasses and other props), and knew when and how to conduct the traditional portions of the reception (bouquet/garter toss etc) in an exciting manner.

One of the most emotionally moving portions of the reception was the daddy/daughter dance. At my request, the band learned a special song (“Stealing Cinderella) and performed it perfectly, bringing many of the guests to happy tears. The Rivertown Band exceeded my expectations. The band members work well together, were completely in sync, and their enthusiasm was contagious. Guests who attended the reception continue to comment to me about the fun they had with The Rivertown Band.

I highly recommend The Rivertown Band. They are reliable, experienced, enthusiastic and great musicians. They provide a fun time for all ages and make the event a memorable one. When the next of my remaining three daughters gets married, I will again be calling on The Rivertown Band.

It was SUCH a pleasure working with you and the rest of the band. I actually took a few business cards because I really enjoyed you all so much. Bands are sometimes the hardest thing for me to refer to brides because I feel like we don’t have a ton of good bands locally. I was very impressed with all of your talent and especially how easy it was working with you as well. I am good friends with Ashley and Greg (the photographers) and we kept saying how we hope more brides book you. I will most certainly get your name out there and refer you to any brides I can! Please let me know if you should need anything; look forward to working with you again!

The Rivertown Band was extremely accommodating for our wedding reception. We met with Scott and he talked with us at length about exactly how we wanted everything to go. The band kept everyone engaged and entertained throughout the evening. They entertained the crowd that was there, and didn’t just play a pre-established routine. Most importantly, they sounded GREAT and were a lot of fun! The Rivertown Band were a huge part of a successful reception and everyone complimented us on how good the band was. Our wedding venue even mentioned that they would start recommending the band to future clients!

Michael (Groom) The White Room St. Augustine, FL April 2012







Incredible….the highlight of our wedding in St Augustine. Minus a brief intermission, they played for 2.5 hours without interruption. A great mix of classics and new stuff, they kept the dance floor packed until the last song. Versatile, talented, and energetic. Their version of our first dance, learned specifically for our wedding, was beautiful. Timely with songs used from our iPod. Highly recommended for your wedding or any event. Scott was accomodating, communicative and very helpful with recommendations. These guys know how to entertain and are well-worth the money.

We absolutely LOVED you guys! There are not enough words to describe how much we appreciate everything! It was a dream to work with you and you went above and beyond. Every last guest said that you were one of the best bands they had ever heard playing at a wedding and that you had totally made the evening! The ability to read the crowd was amazing… no micromanagement needed here at all, which is such a great thing when there’s so much else going on! I have no complaints at all about you guys… fabulous from first contact to last song! Only wish we could have gone longer!

The Rivertown Band played such an important role in our wedding day, providing the entertainment and setting the tone, and we had such an amazing, fun night! Highly recommended! Far exceeded our expectations!

We feel SO lucky to have found The RiverTown Band for our wedding! Before hearing about The RiverTown Band we had originally booked a different band for our wedding. We signed the contract with the other band & placed a deposit about 6 months prior to our wedding date. As our wedding got closer & closer we realized we had made a mistake. The band we had previously hired was not returning our emails or our Wedding Planner’s emails & up to 3 months before the wedding they still had not provided us with a set list (which we had requested multiple times). At about this time our Wedding Planner gave us our options: Stick with our current band and hope for the best (and keep our fingers crossed they show up & actually play music we like) OR forfeit our deposit to book the RiverTown Band. Our wedding planner HIGHLY recommended The RiverTown Band and advised us to research them online. After checking out their website & reviewing their set list (which was readily available to us & included all of our favorite songs) we decided to make the switch. WE ARE SO GLAD WE DID! BEST DECISION WE MADE! The RiverTown Band were EVERYTHING you would want from a wedding band & more! They were extremely professional, easy going, and SO MUCH FUN! They made the Reception a party- which is exactly what we wanted. Everyone was up & about dancing throughout the night! Our favorite part was the surprise Karaoke session at the end of the night. Such a blast! Thank you RiverTown Band for making our wedding the best night of our lives!

Thank you again for everything! You truly made our Reception amazing and as my mom said “made the rain go away”. We had the BEST time and we had tons of guests tell us you were the best wedding band they had ever seen. We can’t thank you enough for making it a party everyone will always remember. J

We could not have chosen a better band. From the planning stages to our wedding day, our expectations were exceeded. It was very important to us to find a band that was energetic, entertaining and current, but that the older guests would still enjoy. The RiverTown Band was all of that and more. Numerous guests and vendors told us how how much they enjoyed the music and asked for the name of the band.

Weeks after our wedding, guests continued to express how awesome they thought the band was and how fun it was to have the band interact with the crowd. Especially the karaoke with the groom and groomsmen!! I wouldn’t change a thing! The band was wonderful and extremely flexible. I honestly cannot think of anything I was dissatisfied with.

March 2013







I was so impressed with The Rivertown Band. The entire process I had with the band from signing the contract through the reception was beyond impressive. The band was professional and very easy to work with. I was also blown away with the talent and the variety of music that was played. My guests and I didn’t stop dancing for hours!

Thank you again for the FANTASTIC job you did at our wedding!!! You really made it a special and FUN night for everyone! You guys rock!
