WHAT MAKES TOP TIER THE BEST CHOICE FOR MY EVENT?
Top Tier is the best of both worlds—a fun, high-energy party band and a smooth, light jazz band all in one! So whether you just want a great dance band, or you also want some relaxing dinner/cocktail music before the party really heats up, look no further. We are consistently annual winners of Wedding Wire’s Couples’ Choice Award and Gigmasters 5 Star Performer Award. The attention to detail that we give each and every event, to make sure it’s the best it can be, is unmatched. Check out our testimonials page for proof of that.
Top Tier consists of top notch, experienced musicians with a passion for performing. Our band members have shared the stage with a diverse group of artists, such as Rick Springfield, The Cars, Craig Morgan, Tiffany, Phil Vassar, Ambrosia, and John Ford Coley. Collectively we have performed everywhere from cruise ships and casinos, to arenas and headlining major outdoor concerts. Members of the band have also written music and recorded with members of Sawyer Brown, Winger, Thompson Square, Giant, and Steve Perry’s band. Our music has been used in major motion pictures, TV, advertising, and recorded by several artists. So when you want the highest level of live entertainment, for a very reasonable price, be sure to choose Top Tier!
WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU PLAY?
As you will see on our song list page, Top Tier has a repertoire that spans over 7 decades and encompasses many styles of music. Whether it be pop, rock, disco, Motown, country, jazz, or oldies, Top Tier can handle it. Although we are very skilled at reading the crowd and gearing our song selections accordingly, this is your event. So if you prefer the music selections to be heavy on the 70’s, an overdose of 80’s, or a heap of more modern material, just let us know when you book the band and we’ll gladly oblige. Of course we also take requests while performing.

Definitely. We offer both live musicians/vocalists and recorded music options for your ceremony. We have wireless lapel microphones available to rent for the officiant and/or groom as well.
WHAT ARE YOUR RATES AND WHAT DOES THAT INCLUDE?
There are several factors that are considered for booking rates (i.e. the date of the event, the travel distance, 5, 6, or 8-piece band, and the performance hours). Please contact us via phone or email and we’ll promptly give you an accurate quote once we have all the details of your event. It is almost certain that our rates will be lower than other wedding/corporate bands. Our overhead is lower because we have our own PA system and lights. This is a cost savings we pass on to you.
Our band quotes always include:
- Providing full sound system and band lighting
- Serving as Master of Ceremonies (MC)
- Learning two songs free of charge (first dance, father/daughter, favorite song, etc.)
- Wireless mic available for speeches
- Dance floor lighting
- Your input on the play list
- Playing recorded music before we start and on our breaks
- Working with you on creating a timeline (if needed)
- Liability insurance
- Any travel costs
HOW LONG DO YOU PLAY FOR?
Our standard rates are for up to 4 hours of music. You may use a portion of that time for light jazz dinner music or have us just play great dance music all night, the choice is yours. Typically for a 4 hour event we’ll take two 15 minute breaks. We will play recorded music on our breaks so there is never any down time. We can always be hired to perform for longer than 4 hours.
WHAT IF I HAVE A QUESTION THAT’S NOT LISTED HERE?
Please contact us with any questions you may have! We’re here to assist you in making your event the best it can possibly be. We will be flexible and accommodating to you, whatever your needs may be.
