The band was amazing! Our one regret from the wedding is that while socializing with all of the guests we did not get enough time to enjoy how great the live music was! We got so many compliments from all of our guests who had a great time! We had so much fun! They learned the song for our first dance and gave a great performance! We could not have asked for a better band! Chris was so responsive! We went through all of the details in advance and talked through our rain plan on the phone the day of the wedding. He was so accommodating in answering questions! It was clear they were very experienced! Having live music is more money than hiring a DJ but it was well worth it.

I cannot say enough good things about Fusion DC. Excellent band and music, exceptional service, and amazing prices, especially for the DC market. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

DC Fusion performed at our wedding and completely blew us out of the water! We requested 2 new songs not on their song list for our first dance and our "father/daughter mother/son" dance and they were both perfect! DC Fusion kept our guests on the dance floor all night with an amazing selection of songs. I highly recommend DC Fusion, they were instrumental in our perfect wedding night.

We are so glad we chose DC Fusion to perform at our wedding! Throughout the planning process, Chris was very responsive and professional! We loved every song the band played and our guests couldn't stop raving about the music- many guests said it was "the best band" they'd ever heard! Once the music started no one wanted it to stop- truly, when it came time for our reception to end no one wanted to leave because they were having such a great time on the dance floor. I mean it when I say choosing DC Fusion as our wedding band was one of the best decisions we made.

DC Fusion absolutely made our wedding!!! They were phenomenal! The music was amazing and the musicians truly kind and accommodating. They were able to read the crowd and really made the night special. They took into consideration our preferences and really delivered exactly what we asked for. The individual dances were wonderful. We had two musicians also play during our cocktail which was a nice touch. Working with Chris was easy; he's organized, helpful and very responsive. We are just so thankful for the wonderful experience that they gave us and our guests. Would recommend 100%! Thank you guys so so much! Big shout out to Randy on guitar, you're incredible!!!

Booking DC Fusion was easily one of the best wedding vendor decisions we made. The entire band was terrific - everyone loved the music and people are still telling us how much fun they had on the dance floor! Benjie and the band went out of their way to incorporate a few special moments/tributes to key people, and the entire night was flawless. Additionally, Chris was an awesome partner to work with throughout the planning process. Our venue presented us with a few unexpected challenges, and Chris was crucial to helping us navigate around them. He was incredibly patient with my many questions and concerns, and provided helpful guidance to ensure our entire night was seamless and tons of fun for everyone. Could not recommend them more highly!

Chris was so great to work with--helped us find just the right band for our wedding, with a great repertoire and fantastic groove. We hired DC Fusion--as someone who's been playing music for pay since the 1970s, I have to say they were absolutely amazing, rave reviews from all my guests, including many musicians and a few pros. Chris was amazing to work with, thought of everything, great and fast communication, 100 percent professional. I'd work with him again any day!

DC Fusion were top-notch and really made our reception great! We listened to tons of other bands and we're so happy that we went with them. Both Benji and the female vocalist (whose name I don't know) were SO good! They were really great about interacting with the crowd and keeping the party going. We also loved the saxophone player and all the other musicians. Chris Grasso was our main contact and was very professional throughout the whole process. He always responded promptly and kept up with us on all deadlines. He is very good at his job!

DC Fusion made our wedding reception absolutely amazing. People were dancing the entire night and we lost count of how many compliments we received on the band. They really blew the roof off the tent and everything went so smoothly--from the sound setup all the way to the end of the night. The female vocalist was not the same one as in the promo videos -- but she killed it. The sound guy even downloaded our entrance music, because we forgot to bring it. Chris, our go-between, was highly responsive from start to finish. My husband and I both grew up around and playing music, so the quality of the band was extremely important to us. We viewed two other bands before selecting DC Fusion -- so happy we kept digging until we struck gold!

DC Fusion LIT IT UP!!! FROM the first song in the first set to the very end at 11: 00 pm , guests wanted more more more. Thank you so much , Benji was a true professional business man making sure to accommodate all my wishes. Excellent vocals , the two were outstanding . Unbelievable brass section, the sax player coming onto the dance floor was over the top! Imagine over 125 people dancing at any one time. Those that didn't dance , didn't because they don't know how but they boogied in there seats . WOW! Hosting a breakfast now for all the stay over guest and they are still pumped up. Congrats to you on putting together such a awesome group of 1st class musicians.

Hiring DC Fusion was one of the best wedding decisions we made. Chris Grasso was consistently prompt, responsive and incredibly helpful in answering all of our (many) questions and addressing any concerns from the first time we inquired about the band through the day of event (ranging from whether the band could adjust their volume in our small venue to when and how long the band breaks should be). This was important since we planned the entire event ourselves and had a special performance from the MOH -- the band was very willing to learn a new song, practice with her just before the event, and accompany her. The band was phenomenal. Our guests danced the entire night away and continue to rave about them still today. They were also affordable with options to expand or decrease band size based on preference/needs. I'd give infinite stars if I could (talent, value for money, experience, Chris/DC Fusion has it all). Thanks Chris and DC Fusion for making our day incredible. One more note (no pun intended), after we hired DC Fusion, Chris provided us with several options for ceremony music. Ultimately, we hired Chelle with Music by Anthem to play violin. We really liked working with Chelle to put together an appropriate musical set for our wedding ceremony. Chelle was versatile, responsive, and had helpful ideas. She was the perfect touch to our simple, but personalized ceremony. Thank you, Chelle, for being a very special part of our wedding day.
