The DC Transit Band is a 10 piece dance band featuring the fabulous vocals of Lindsay Diles and Josh Alfred embelished by a four piece horn section and anchored in a veteran rhythm section.   

We play a wide variety of popular dance music and our repertoire is packed with frequently requested songs at weddings, dances, and corporate events. 

We offer a high quality Jazz Quartet to entertain your guests during the cocktail hour.   For your dinner, we can offer an excellent easy listening dinner set sure to please folks of all ages.   And when it's time to dance, we can keep 'em on the floor for the remainder of the night!  

We'll work with you to plan the entire reception program.  From your grand entrance and announcement of the Bridal Party, we can tailor the entire reception to meet your needs.   We'll work with you to select your First Dance, the Mother & Son Dance, the Father a& Daughter Dance, and the Last Dance.   We have special songs for the Cake Cutting, the Garter Throw, and the Boquett Toss.

Formed on 9 January 2011, with the vision of becoming a Wedding / Corporate Events and Festivals Band.  We rehearse in Mannas, VA and our members reside throughout Northern Virginia and Maryland.    Most of our musicians are teachers and have degrees from prestigious schools.    We pride ourselves on giving you our best so your wedding or event will be a great memory for the rest of your life.

Live music will make your event special.  Selecting our band will be one of the easiest and best decisions you'll make.

Look no further! DC Transit was the best choice we made. It really brought our wedding celebration to its full potential. Excellent playlist, talent, communication, and we had the best dance party. We honestly had so much fun at our own wedding and would not have changed a single thing.

Hiring the DC Transit was one of the best decisions we made in all of our wedding planning. Cam was very responsive, easy to work with, and did a great job of accommodating our requests for songs, programming items, etc. We had a lot of input into what songs were played at the wedding and they even learned a few new songs just for us. The band itself brought down the house during the reception. They did a fantastic job of getting the whole crowd dancing all night. The songs in their line up are extensive, relevant, and fantastically preformed. We received many compliments on them after the wedding and a number of our friends have asked about how to book them for their own events. Additionally their value is unmatched. They provided a nine piece band for the reception and a four piece jazz combo for the cocktail hour at a literally unbelievable price. Also for a small additional fee their piano player provided music at our ceremony . I can't speak highly enough of the DC Transit, I would hire them again every day of the week and twice on Sundays. You're crazy if you look somewhere else.

DC Transit Band really made our wedding! They are fabulous and SO accommodating and easy to work with! They worked up a special ceremony entrance song just for me and worked with us on all of our requests. They are great entertainers, stick to your script and requests and keep the party going! Our guests are still raving about them! They are truly the best touch to any reception!

If you don't read the whole review, the summary is this- hire this band, do it. You will not be disappointed. Everyone at our wedding, EVERYONE, said it was the best band they had ever heard at a wedding, and a lot of guests said it was one of the best bands they have heard, period. They were so entertaining that the venue we booked asked me for the band's information so that they could work the band into their recommended entertainment for when people book the venue. I am a professional musician and have heard and played with a lot of talented people and groups, but the D.C. Transit Band is the best band you can hire that I've ever seen, without question. The singers are incredible and know how to work the crowd, and the band behind them is really tight on every song, everyone locked in with each other. From "Shout" to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" to "Uptown Funk" to "Can't Stop the Feeling" to every other song in between, they were perfect. Plus, the only break they took for the night was for best man / maid of honor speeches. We didn't just get the dinner music though- their keyboard player provided the music for the ceremony. My wife had very specific requests for the party entrance music, the bridal entrance, and the recessional music, and he played each song perfectly. The horns provided a jazz quartet for cocktail hour, then the whole 9 piece band did dinner and dancing. Long story short- you cannot get more for your money than you can with the D.C. Transit Band. They could have charged double what they did and would have still been the best value of anything I've spent money on. For what they provide and the price they charge, you're basically losing money if you hire anyone else.

DC Transit is such an incredible band! I could not have imagined a more energetic, talented, down-to-earth group of musicians to play at our wedding. From the moment they started playing, everyone knew that we would have an incredible time dancing. They even LEARNED new songs for us for our "special songs" such as first dance, etc. Their horns section adds an incredible dynamic to their playlist. They pulled off songs like "September" and "Superstition" and had everyone singing and dancing along. While they were playing their dinner set and everyone was eating, they started playing "At Last" and I was so moved by the music that I had to pull my husband up on the dance floor. We think of that as our "second" first dance! I highly recommend this band to all of my friends and family for their events. They are, simply put, incomparable!!

Wow, just wow. Cam and The DC transit band rocked the house for our wedding in May 2017. From the start they were great to work with, completely professional, and so much fun too. We can't thank them enough for learning multiple songs for is and playing them better then we could have hoped for. The Jazz combo for the cocktail hour was a great hit, and then they rocked the night away in the reception and the full nine piece band. We cannot thank them enough for making our wedding more than we could have ever hoped for.

From start to finish, Cam and the DC Transit Band were top notch! Cam was always responsive and professional and really knows his stuff! They learned several songs for our wedding and played them beautifully. Our guests were up dancing before the main course was even served. They even cheered "One more song, one more song!" at the end of the night when the lights came up. The band was kind enough to play an encore which ROCKED THE HOUSE. Our guests cannot stop raving about DC Transit Band - I've even had a few ask for their contact information. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making our day one we will remember for the rest of our lives.

The DC Transit Band provided music for our wedding reception on October 23rd, 2016 and they were awesome! They're an extremely talented group of musicians and our guests certainly appreciated it. They provided the right volume and mood for dinner music, but were also really able to turn it up for the dance floor later in the night. They play in a range of styles and always sound amazing. They even helped us with our cocktail hour music- connecting us with a Celtic duo that was a side project of one of the members of the band. My husband and I are both musicians and a large portion of our guests were high caliber musicians. Everybody said they loved the band. The DC Transit Band is an unbelievable value and you won't regret booking them! Thank You!

We can't say enough good things about the DC Transit Band. The lead was so easy to work with, professional, timely, and dealt with our MANY modifications to both their song list and their script. Many thanks to the band for their wonderful contributions to our big day!!

How can we begin to tell you how great DC Transit Band was. They kept the party going all night with great music and were able to read the crowd beautifully. We got so many complements from people about how great the band was. I wanted to play a special song for my wife on banjo and they were down for it and made me sound great. Also, they lead a great Hora (for those looking at Jewish weddings). I seriously can not begin to recommend them enough. We plan on going to hear them at events around D.C. Cam was so great working through.

I'm a wedding planner, and I've worked with The DC Transit Band on two weddings now. Both times I've been blown away by their professionalism, flexibility, and commitment to making each wedding the very best it can be. The members of the band are all consummate musicians, and they bring incredible energy to their performances. The DC Transit Band isn't your typical "wedding band." They provide an awesome experience for you and your guests, and they're there to support their couples throughout the process of planning the entertainment portion of their wedding. They're my #1 choice when recommending live music to couples, and I can't wait to work with them again!

If you want a band that is accommodating, friendly, has a wide range of songs to suit every taste, and sounds great playing them, you'll want to book The DC Transit Band. I can't tell you how many guests commented on how great the band was. They played for six hours and the energy that they brought to the room never flagged. People were up and dancing all night. They even hit the photo booth, which was awesome.
