Shining Star… more than a band, PARTY of a LIFETIME!

Shining Star has been the top choice for the finest Arizona and national weddings for almost 20 years!  No one knows how to make your dream event come to life exactly the way you see it in your mind like this band. Choose your favorite songs from our VAST song list covering all styles of music – from romantic standards, Sinatra, 70s, 80s, 90s, 2000s to today’s hottest hits!

Shining Star custom tailors every event, and Jodi Light acts as your dedicated band leader, lead vocalist, MC, and coordinator, paying attention to every detail of your musical vision for the most important day of your life. As accredited members of the AZ BBB, Shining Star has only had rave reviews, is experienced, reliable and proven at their craft and is on the preferred vendor lists of all the most elegant resorts and venues.

Shining Star is a REAL band, not a “pieced together one” and all band members LOVE to perform together, creating a super positive charged vibe at your event! Band size ranges from a 5 to 12 piece. The finest ceremony and cocktail music is available too with package pricing. Shining Star guarantees a packed dance floor, will learn your specialty songs, make custom playlists for the breaks, and really cares about every couple!
