The King of Hearts band is not only a blend of tremendous musicians and vocalists, it is a band full of energy, professionalism and fun! Being right there with them close to the dance floor....watching their phenomenal dance moves...and seeing their 'smiles' which proves they love what they do and they feed on the energy of the crowd. You all brought it!!! Thanks so very much Mark and team!!

King of Hearts performed at our wedding in July 2023. We had previously seen King of Hearts at a party 1-2 years earlier and we were so happy to be able to work with them for our wedding! They were phenomenal and we had such a fun time! They were easy to work with from the start. During the planning process, they were quick to respond and always answered any questions we had. They helped to coordinate a string trio for the ceremony music, MC’ed during the dinner reception, and played appropriate background music during cocktail hour and dinner. They did an outstanding job during our reception. We enjoyed the variety of music they played. They had a great feel for the energy and tastes of the crowd and played music to fit the mood. There were people on the dance floor all night, and we’re still hearing from guests about how much they loved the band. We had such a fun time and would recommend them in a HEARTbeat!

King of Hearts and Mark are the best band you can have at your wedding. Across performance, professionalism, and punctuality, Mark and his crew were superb in all three aspects. Performance – Mark and his crew had everyone dancing all night. Mark expertly read the crowd and kept the dance floor exciting. Further, Mark and his crew went out of his way to learn oldies to accommodate the various music preferences at our wedding. It honestly felt we had front seats at a concert where my wife and I were the VIPs. We personally believe that Mark and his crew of talented musicians are the best performers we have seen at weddings, and we have been to many weddings. Professionalism – Mark and his crew were true professionals at heart. Their instruments and equipment sounded flawless all night. They adjusted all the volume ahead of time to ensure we had the perfect sound quality for speeches and songs. Mark and his crew went above and beyond set up instruments and speakers at our ceremony for a special performance from our family members. Mark and his crew were flawless in their performance. Punctuality – Wedding can be a hectic day with many time changes, and our wedding was not the exception. Mark and his crew were always ready ahead of time, and they were always accommodating when changes happened. Mark and his crew were beyond punctual, and we truly thank them for their flexibility. At our wedding, we had friends asking for Mark’s contact information, and I think it speaks volumes to how good of a band King of Hearts and Mark are. We were blessed to have Mark and King of Hearts at our wedding, and 10/10 we would ask them again.

We could not have been more grateful to have KOH join us for our wedding day! Mark and team were thoughtful in their approach, curating the music we wanted to hear on our wedding day. They learned songs that were special to us and played them beautifully. They were incredible from start to finish, including supporting the audio for our ceremony itself, to a beautiful cocktail hour, topped off with an absolute ripper on the dance floor. It was everything you could ask for, and more. I could not recommend them enough!

King of Hearts went above and beyond for our wedding and we are so happy that we hired them for our big day. Working with Mark, the band manager, on the details leading up to the wedding was a breeze as he was incredibly responsive and very easy to work with. He responded timely to all of our questions and was very organized. I requested for one of my bridesmaids to perform a song with the band, and my mother in law had requested for a family member to surprise us with another performance, and Mark and the band made it happen seamlessly. The band provided the equipment for our ceremony and played our selected music from spotify. The ceremony went off without a hitch. The band did a phenomenal job setting the tone of our wedding reception. Leon was a fantastic MC as well as a lead singer. Deb was the co-lead singer and they sounded amazing together as well as solo. We had them learn three songs for us and each was executed beautifully. Our guests also loved how the lead guitarist played in the middle of the dancefloor and let us strum away on his guitar. The band was very interactive and high energy which is just what we wanted to get the crowd going and keep the dancefloor grooving all night long. We received such high remarks from our guests about our wedding band, so thank you King of Hearts for an unforgettable night! You made our wedding so special and we can't thank you enough!

We got married at the Mountain Top in Vermont over Labor Day Weekend, and choosing a band was one of our top priorities. We looked into and interviewed close to ten different bands, and ultimately chose KOH for a number of reasons – and are SO glad we did!! Our goal was to have every age group on our guest list – from 8 year old cousins to our 80 year old grandma – out on the dance floor, and it happened!! Our guests are STILL raving about the music and performance 4 months later. KOH read the room at every turn, and played the perfect mix of top 40 and oldies to keep the crowd LOVING it! Mark is also an incredible emcee, and managed the entire flow of the reception so smoothly, transitioning from speeches to dinner to dancing to cake cutting without missing a beat. One of the big reasons I initially chose KOH was because my very first phone call was with Mark, the lead singer AND my main point of contact throughout the entire planning process. This was so important to me because I knew nothing would slip through the cracks or get lost in translation between someone handling bookings/details and the actual band, which can happen with bigger operations. Mark was patient, kind, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. And at our actual wedding, he and the rest of the team CRUSHED it! He also handled sound for our outdoor ceremony, and if you're getting married at the Mountain Top I definitely recommend having KOH take care of this. It was truly the best day of our lives, and King of Hearts brought the reception to an entirely different level. If you're on the fence about hiring them, this is your sign to DO IT! Thanks Mark and team!!

King of Hearts was AMAZING! We could not have asked for a better band. King of Hearts had our entire wedding on the dance floor all night long. Additionally, they were communicative, professional, and personable to work with. I would highly recommend them for any wedding/event!

Mark and his band "The King of Hearts" were fantastic!! We had to re-plan and re-schedule our way through the Covid-19 year and as painful as that was, Mark guided us with the fairness of the true gentleman that he is. For those of you planning a wedding and trying to save money by going with a DJ ~ DON'T!!! They learned "Sledge Hammer" for the groom and killed it... The woman vocalist enchanted my wife and I with Etta James, "At Last" and then they got dance party started, rocking us with "Up Town Funk!" We started this journey with 200 guests at the Hyport Club and ended it with just under 50 in our back yard. My wife and I were scared it wouldn't match our other kids weddings but with their help the Guests literally danced for 4 solid hours!! Quite simply, "The King of Hearts" made my daughter's wedding great!

I do not have enough good things to say about Mark and the entire KOH band. We found KOH on YouTube and booked them within an hour. In one of the prior reviews someone wrote "I wish I could get divorced and married all over again, just to have KOH play at my wedding again" and that had us SOLD! Mark was so great to work with - he was responsive, offered great insight, and accommodated everything we wanted (even learning two new songs within 10 days of the wedding)! Our wedding guests have not stopped talking about KOH saying it was the best time they've ever had at a wedding. The dance floor was packed from the second they started playing to the second it ended. I'm so thankful we had them at our wedding and can't imagine having anyone else! Thanks Mark and KOH band!!

Hire them now! Mark & King of Hearts band were amazing!! They truly made our wedding. Hiring the perfect band was super important to us. Mark was so easy to work with - prompt & professional. The band knocked it out of the park! They played some special songs just for us and even added an a few extras to make it even better. Our guests were on the dance floor all night. I would 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a band. We can't thank them enough!

Wow -- where do we even begin?! KOH band truly made our wedding at Belle Mer so fun and extra special. They had everyone on the dance floor all night, and are excellent at reading the crowd. They are all extremely talented musicians. My guests continue to say that our wedding was the most fun wedding they've ever attended! They played the perfect combination of old & new songs, while seamlessly performing a few songs they learned especially for us. I'm a musician, so the music was such an important element of the wedding. I did a ton of research and I am so thrilled that I chose them because they beyond exceeded our expectations. All of my musician friends in attendance were blown away by their talent too. Thank you KOH band for the memories, we will cherish them forever!

Best. Band. Ever. Seriously, the best! When planning our wedding, my fiancé and I prioritized finding a fun, high-energy band that would keep our guests entertained all night, and King of Hearts far exceeded our expectations! Our dance floor was never empty (the band even forgot to take a break!) and one of our absolute favorite memories of the entire wedding day was joining the King of Hearts onstage to sing "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey before our exit. Three months later, and our guests are still raving about how great King of Hearts was! We LOVE King of Hearts and highly recommend them to anyone and everyone.

King of Hearts was INCREDIBLE. They were definitely the highlight of our wedding and our guests couldn’t get over how fun and amazing they were. Mark was so easy to work with, really responsive and also helpful in establishing what we needed for the big day.
