Jodi was an absolute joy to work with. Music being our top priority with the wedding, I know we came off as “needy” and “music-snobs”, and Jodi was totally cool with it and made everything happen! She even recruited an amazing guitarist for our cocktail hour. The band is nothing but pure talent and professionalism. They absolutely rocked the socks off the Biltmore and worked with all our requests and needs. Oh, and not to mention she has INCREDIBLE pipes. Seriously. I cannot recommend these guys highly enough!

We used Shining Star for our wedding last October, and we could NOT have been happier. Both my husband and I are from NY, so having a great band was a must. We went to hear the band play at some local venues, and they were excellent. Even better, our friends wound up using them for their wedding a couple of months before! The day of our wedding went smoothly, thanks in part to Jodi working closely with our wedding planner and knowing exactly what to do, and when to do it. Everyone was on the dance floor the whole night. Friends and family still tell us how excellent our band was, and we couldn’t agree more! Thanks, Jodi and crew, for making our wedding so much fun!

One of the things I loved the most is that I could tell that the Shining Star band really enjoys playing together. Its evident that they love their job as they almost had as much fun performing as we did dancing to their music!!!! Working with Jodi and Shining Star was a true pleasure and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is hiring a band for a special event. We had about 250 people at our wedding and the huge dance floor was packed the entire evening, so much so that several people told me they barely ate that night since they didn’t want to miss out on the action on the dance floor. People were even dancing on the carpet since there was no room on the dance floor 🙂 Alysa

Shining Star far exceeded our expectations of a band for our wedding day! Jodi and the band did such a great job. Everyone is still talking about how great they were. They made our reception so much fun. Some are even saying that it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to, and I know it’s due to Jodi and Shining Star Band! Our reception was outside at a hotel, and I even had hotel guests come up to me the next day to tell me how great they thought our band was and how much they enjoyed listening to them. Thanks, Shining Star! You were the best!! Jennifer

We had been following this band since me and my husband met! We knew they were not only talented but also professionals. Jodi was great about setting up a time line for the ceremony to the cocktail hour and they reception. I danced along with the rest of the guest all night long. They have a ton of music to choose from. And they learned our song we requested for our first dance which was so awesome. Guests cannot stop talking about this band! Joanna

Shining Star is awesome! They had everyone dancing the entire night. I couldn’t believe how quickly everyone (and I mean every single one of our 220 guests) was on the dance floor and they never left! Jodi is an awesome MC. They play everything from Sinatra to Black Eyed Peas. My Grandpa had a request for a song that they had never played so over the break they listened to it on iTunes and played it perfectly 5 minutes later! Amazing! I can’t tell you how many compliments I received on the band. They take two short breaks during dinner and later in the night, but everyone was dancing so hard that they needed a breather :). The band is one of the most important elements and Shining Star will do an awesome job.
