The big question to ask any bandleader before you book that band...

Who will the musicians be for my wedding? Will they be a 'pieced together' group of contracted musicians hired just for the night, or will they be a 'real band' who plays together night in and night out and has for many years?

Underwater People is in the 'latter' category. Same professional musicians night after night. That's what you want. The end result for you - on stage familiarity that means strong vocal harmonies, better on stage cohesiveness, better flow between songs, and a band that cares much more about your event than someone just looking to cash a check at the end of the night. 

Five Reasons To Choose LIVE MUSIC For Your Wedding

1. Live Music Creates Excitement -

When you hear live music, whether you're at a club or a private party, it means something special is happening. It naturally draws a crowd and invites people to join in on the fun. Each year, millions of people pay huge amounts of money to attend concerts to hear their favorite singers or groups perform because they want to feel the energy of the performer. Live musicians create an energy unmatched by a DJ.

2. Live Music More Easily Sets And Changes A Mood -

Social events are all about human interaction. Live musicians can read the crowd and react to their needs. Live music can set the right tone and mood and change it throughout the event if necessary. Good musicians form a bond with the guests delivering exactly what they want when they want it.

3. People Prefer Live Music and it’s Classy -

How often have you heard someone describe an event they attended saying something like ".   .   . and that band was great! You should have heard them play!” Conversely, when have you heard people discussing a wedding in regards to the "awesomely cool DJ that really rocked the party!!!" .  .  .  . uh.  .  . never.

The music and dancing part of the evening is the last, and the most memorable, part of any wedding reception.

4. We all have an iPod or other MP3 device -

Do you really want to go out and get excited to hear someone play the same device you have in your pocket? Enough said!

5. If the event that you're planning is a wedding...

Unless you're Larry King or Elizabeth Taylor, you're planning one, one and only one, wedding day for yourself, right? Do you really want to squander the most important day of your life (and the most important part of your wedding reception) on a disc jockey?


LIVE MUSIC. When the music really matters…Underwater People.

Any chance you like the Country Music too?

If so, there is simply no better band to book for your event than Underwater People.

Why? Because the same members of Underwater People also masquerade as the very popular Country Sky Band.  Along with headlining the Main Stage at Country Thunder USA (CHECK OUT VIDEOS HERE), this band was the house band for three years at Joe's Bar on Weed St. in Chicago for their country music nights. So, when you book Underwater People, not only do you get an experienced band that plays classy wedding/private party music, you get a band that can really play country music. In fact, Jacob, the band's musical director/lead guitarist teaches a Modern Country Ensemble down at the Old Town School in Chicago. It's the real deal!
