Testimonials - Or, as we call them, fancy opinions
We understand if you have hesitations about hiring a band that willingly calls themselves "Something Stupid." The irony of the band name aside, we are one of the area's most professional, experienced and entertaining bands. But don't take our word for it; read what our past clients have said about their experiences when working with the band.
Jared Minton - Groom
"My fiancé and I were having the hardest time picking bands for our wedding. We'd settled on the location, and were in the process of looking to pay for a band to travel up from Boston, assuming no one in the Portland area were qualified for what we wanted. We then stumbled across a band rocking a variety of tunes at a venue in downtown Portland. My fiancé said "we HAVE to ask these guys." They covered the Beatles, Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, you name it. They were eclectic and also had these ridiculous suits which we felt fit in EXACTLY with our personalities. We hired them the very next day.
Leading up to the wedding, we were obviously stressed out, but Todd could not have been easier to work with. He was extremely gracious with our limited time, always very cordial and could not have been more prompt in his responses to our questions and requests. At the venue, they played our pre-selected cocktail music, MC'ed all of our introductions and dances and when they took the stage, the performance was electric! The dance floor was packed the entire night. Every song was epic. They took requests, interacted with the crowd, cracked jokes, and even invited my uncle up to sing.
Long story short, Something Stupid MADE our wedding! We received countless positive comments about the band from family and friends during and after the reception. They're extremely skilled musicians, a blast to see live and completely stress-free when it comes to the planning and coordination aspect of your wedding. My wife and I cannot recommend them highly enough."
