KELSEY & ED TRUITT

Recently my husband and I got married at Renault Winery and  had GoodMan Fiske as our wedding band. HOLY CRAP!!! We saw them play at a friends wedding and at a few local places. They were good then but even better at our wedding. They went above and beyond what we discussed prior to the wedding and were more than willing and flexible to make adjustments prior to and during the wedding to make everything special. They offer a lot of options and are one of the best if not the best at what they do. This was not only from our perspective but many of our guests had nothing but great things to say about them and the atmosphere they created. GoodMan Fiske was amazing and made sure not only my husband and myself had the most amazing day ever, but also our guests. They played various music genres for all to get involved, had great transitions between songs, and even learned a specific song. And they nailed it. From the time we were introduced to the last song of the night people were on the dance floor singing and dancing. This was all due to GoodMan Fiske doing what they do best and keeping the party going. If you are planning any event that requires music or a band, I highly recommend using them! They put on the best entertainment for the crowd and I promise everyone will love them! I will definitely be suggesting and hiring them again for future events!

GoodMan Fiske absolutely killed it for our wedding! We didn’t want the typical 12 piece wedding band, but something different that would get everyone dancing to music from all genres and decades. Thankfully, we took the advice of a couple friends and hired GMF.  It was one of the best decisions we’ve made. Working with them was such an easy process as they were so professional yet down to earth. From perfectly executing the type of vibe/performance we wanted, to engaging with our guests and feeding off their energy on the dance floor, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Everyone in the band truly went ALL OUT to make our day extra special, and they even threw in some fun surprises along the way. 

 

Our friends and family (even the toughest critics) are still talking about how epic GMF was (seriously, their cover of “Tennessee Whiskey” was mind blowing), and how our wedding was “the best wedding they’ve ever been to.” We would highly recommend GoodMan Fiske to anyone looking for a live band that will make your wedding extremely memorable!  We can’t thank them enough and can’t wait to see them live at another show soon!

I couldn't speak more highly of this band and their entire crew. They made the whole wedding planning process so flawless, and they communicated with me the entire time. As a bride, that means the most. They would do anything to make the day as seamless as possible. The reception was a complete GAME CHANGER having them. They interacted with the crowd, and us as newlyweds the whole time, and knew exactly what should be played to keep the party alive!! 10/10 recommend and then some more!!

First and foremost we wanted to thank GoodMan Fiske for making our wedding night the absolute best night of our lives! The band has a way of engaging everyone at the reception and getting them out on the dance floor. Having been to multiple weddings that GoodMan Fiske has performed at I can say quite easily they were the most memorable weddings I have attended. You won't find a better MC for your event, Ryan is the absolute best!  If you are having any kind of event or wedding you need to hire GoodMan Fiske!

When my now husband told me we HAD to have GoodMan Fiske at our wedding I didn’t think much of it. He took me to see them at one of the local bars and still teases me about asking, “Do you think they’ll make me want to dance?” From the first song they played I was out on the dance floor having a blast. We spoke to Ryan and he put us in contact with their agency (Shore Bets) right away. They were consistently attentive and extremely easy to work with. Ryan personally called us to iron out all of the small details a few weeks prior to the wedding and was always there to assist in anyway possible. Fast forward to the wedding... They KILLED IT! They had the dance floor packed from the first song to the last. They play such a variety of songs that they can appeal to any type of audience and are able to read the crowd to keep everyone happy. Our guests still rave about the band and how much fun they had. We can not speak more highly of this band and the fantastic job they did at our wedding. Thank you GoodMan Fiske!!

When it came to picking music options and an MC for our wedding there was no choices… it had to be GoodMan Fiske. From day one Ryan and his management made the whole process so easy. We said we wanted to have a big party on the dance floor and that’s exactly what they delivered. From the first song to the last…. the dance floor was packed. One month later, people still rave about how much fun they had at our wedding and what an amazing band. They covered every genre and not one person could say they didn’t have a great time. Thank you again to GoodMan Fiske for making our wedding the most amazing night for not only just us, but all our friends and family!

GoodMan Fiske is without a doubt the best band we could have hired for our wedding!  It’s been over 2 months and our guests continue to mention the amazingness of the band.  The reason we hired GoodMan Fiske is we were looking for something a little different- not the standard 8 piece band that performs a preset, standard wedding playlist (If you’ve been shopping around you know the bands- a couple brass instruments with a singer performing Black Eyed Peas ‘I’ve got a feeling’). We wanted a band that felt a little more authentic that our friends and family could sing along and be a part of the experience.

Ryan and the guys were extremely easy to work with and eager to make the night unforgettable.  For example, we envisioned the wedding party coming out to Jock Jams with fake statistics.  It was a small, funny idea that we threw out there.  Ryan took on the challenge, edited the music, and embodied the perfect Jock Jams MC. It meant a lot that they put a personal touch to our day. The music throughout the night was phenomenal! GoodMan Fiske played to everyone in the audience- Motown, Classic Rock, 90’s pops, Today’s Hits – they absolutely killed it! They fed off our guest’s energy and the dance floor was filled the entire night.  We could not be happier with GoodMan Fiske and cannot recommend them enough!!!

Let me start from the beginning….my parents were on vacation in Key West, saw GMF perform & automatically told me to look them up to see if they do weddings. We weren’t even thinking of having a band for our wedding at first! We then realized they were from the Jersey area and went to see them play in Philly! WOW- my husband and I could not believe how amazing GMF was! We realized GMF was never scheduled in Western PA so we weren’t sure if they would be willing to come to Pittsburgh, but of course they were! Our wedding day was absolutely amazing. GMF entertained the crowd starting with the bridal introductions and through the whole night! They were extremely professional. Everyone LOVED them & no one wanted the night to end. We really cannot thank GMF enough for everything they did to make our wedding day so special. You will not be disappointed for choosing GMF for your wedding or event! We’re already thinking how we can have another party just so we can have GMF perform again!

Thank you so much again to Shore Bets (Heather) and GMF for everything!

We are Debbie and Dave, not your typical newlyweds as we are in our late 50’s.  We love GoodMan Fiske shows. Ryan, Gene, John and Alex are so down to earth and so much fun.  We try to catch their gigs whenever we can.  It was a no-brainer to hire them for our wedding last May.  They were awesome as usual, and our guests were dancing all night.  They can and will play any music genre requested, and also have music playing while on their breaks.  If you want a great band, great personalities and an unforgettable wedding reception, GoodMan Fiske is for you!

Hiring GoodMan Fiske to play our wedding was the easiest decision my wife and I made when it came to planning our nuptials.   From introductions to the very last second that we had the room, they had all of our guest engaged, entertained, dancing, and having fun.  My father was concerned about the band being too loud, and guests not being able to socialize.  Their sound engineer perfectly matched the output of the band to the size of the room.  Not one person, younger or older, complained about the music being too loud.  The range of songs from Motown to current day gave everyone something to relate to, laugh about, or was the push to get them on the dance floor.  I would tell anyone planning a wedding to book GoodMan Fiske first and then start worrying  about the rest of the wedding plans.  The entertainment should be a no brainer.

We have been seeing GoodMan Fiske play for over 5 years now and every time we went, their shows got better and better. New music. New people. New energy. So when me and my girlfriend got engaged we decided that we didn’t want just a regular wedding DJ. We wanted everyone at our wedding to dance and we knew they would have if it was a DJ but I knew that if we got a band to play, no one would stop dancing. So we decided to hire GoodMan Fiske. These guys rocked the house. Watching Ryan and the band interact over the years with the crowd I knew him and the guys were the right choice. He gets off stage and brings the microphone to everyone and let’s them sing along. That’s how you know this guy loves what he does. Everyone that attended our wedding could not stop talking about the band. The music selection was great. They knew what the crowd wanted to hear and that’s what I think makes them a great all round band.
