The DC Transit Band

The DC Transit Band is a powerhouse dance band on the rise in the DC Metro Area. This nine piece band has everything you've been looking for: a screamin' three piece horn section that will keep you yelling for more, a thumpin' rhythm section that will keep you on the dance floor, and two dynamic and personable lead vocalists who you'll feel you've known forever.

DC Transit is the perfect choice for your wedding (ceremony music available, cocktail hour jazz quartet, dinner music available, and dance party) or corporate event. The band's ever-growing repertoire includes Top-40 hits, Motown, Classic Rock, R&B, Funk, Disco, Jazz Standards, Classic Wedding Music, Holiday Favorites, and everything in between. DC Transit's instrumentation and versatility is second to none, and allows the band to be flexible and provide accommodations for each individual function.

    We had such an incredible wedding reception and a big thanks goes to Cameron and The DC Transit Band. They kept people moving and excited and also made sure the dinner time music was classy and fun! We LOVED their energy and feel they are a great choice for a fun, full, live, big band sound!

    Best choice for a wedding band!

    Hire the DC Transit Band for your wedding, you won’t regret it! Cam was super responsive and accommodating to our needs when it came to our wedding, they even learned 4 new songs just for us (by the way, if you are undecided on a first dance song, Lindsay absolutely rocked the band’s version of Lover by Taylor Swift)! They even provided the music to our ceremony that was held outside of the reception hall. The best part about them is that you could tell they were truly having a great time up there on stage, and it showed through their music. We continue to get compliments about the band even a month after our wedding. They were all we could ever ask for!

    What a performance! Everybody raved about how much they loved the music. Cameron was so easy to correspond with. Can’t say enough great things about DC so I’ll just say HIRE THEM!

    Simply Awesome Guest Experience

    Absolutely highly recommend DC Transit from an entertainment and professional point of view. The entire band was talented, energetic, yet down to earth and easy to work with. They learned two new songs for the first dances and provided us with those tracks in advance to review. The horns made the band’s overall sound so rich. During the cocktail hour, the horns provided a jazz quartet for background mood music. Wedding dinner and dancing featured the full 9 member band playing. The only break the band took was during the best man/maid of honor speeches. Afterwards, they played a straight 2 1/2 hour set. The band read the crowd extremely well and kept the dance floor packed all night long with great, upbeat music. DC Transit provided a simply awesome experience for all our wedding guests.

    The Most Professional

    DCTB is the hardest working, most entertaining band for events I’ve ever seen and they helped with all of the timing and proceedings with our wedding. They are the BEST band in the scene!

    The easiest wedding decision there was

    If you are reading reviews – just stop. Go ahead and book DC Transit Band before someone else snatches them up.

    I first heard of DC Transit Band from a friend. She heard them at a wedding, and the next morning texted me to tell me that she found my wedding band. As soon as I got engaged,my fiance and I reached out and we couldn’t be MORE thrilled with our decision. From the start, Cam and the group have been an absolute DELIGHT to work with. My husband and I went to listen to them one night at a bar and were blown away by their talent. When we finally got to chat with them during set-break, we were blown away by how nice and fun and all-around great they were.

    My husband and I procrastinated a little about our song-selection. Cam was so patient and professional and helped guide us through our check-list and gave us some great suggestions and guidance as we chose some special songs. He helped coordinate a string quartet for the ceremony who was incredible and nailed our songs (including a very special request song for my husband as he walked down the aisle).

    And at our party, Cam, Lindsey and the band were the best! They learned some songs for us (and on short-notice, much appreciated!!). They kept everyone on the dance floor and bouncing around. There wasn’t a down moment, I just wish the party was longer so they could have kept playing. So, so many people throughout the evening kept coming up to us and complimenting the band.

    Music is such an important choice at a wedding and can make or break a party. DC Transit Band is the best choice you could make. Their voices were on point, the instruments were on point, their song selection was on point. They made our wedding into a beautiful live affair and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. We hope we have another special event soon and get the chance to hire them again! Do yourself a favor and stop looking at anyone else, you WILL NOT find anything better.

  9. Terrific!

    The DC Transit Band was terrific! They understood our audience and played accordingly. Everyone was raving about them. The song selection was perfect, they were energetic, and the quality of the sound was excellent! We couldn’t be happier with DC Transit and will definitely be contacting them for future events!

    Professionals who bring the party

    We booked the DC Transit Band after loving their performance at a friend’s wedding, and couldn’t be happier with our choice.

    Cam was extraordinarily easy to work with. He promptly answered every email and kept close track of all our special requests. The rest of the band was every bit as accommodating – making requested changes mid-reception without any difficulty. Our venue, which coordinated with the band, praised their early arrival, quick setup/takedown, and overall professionalism.

  11. "Value is unmatched!"

    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. (Wedding Wire Review – 9/30/2017)

  12. The BEST decision we made in the whole wedding process!!!

    “DC Transit Band was the BEST decision we made during the whole wedding process!!! Cam was absolutely wonderful and easy to work with and he went above and beyond to make our wedding special. He visited our venue on his own time to get a feel for our lay out and that truly made a difference! The whole band was set up in the most perfect locations during cocktail hour, the dinner, and the reception to set the perfect mood. Two months later, our guests are still telling us how much they LOVED the band. They were that much of a HIT! A million times better than any DJ and they were very reasonably priced. Best decision we made!” (Wedding Wire Review 11/18/2017)

    The DC Transit Band were wonderful to work with from the beginning. My company used them for a corporate anniversary party and they were extremely accommodating and responsive. Cam is fantastic and he was easy to get a hold of and made the whole process seamless. The band was SO much fun and had a range of songs to get all ages on the dance floor. They are a great value (9-piece band!) and you won’t regret hiring them. (Wedding Wire review 2/9/2018)

  14. They had EVERYONE on the dance floor!"

    “Cam and the DC Transit Band were wonderful! Cam was very responsive and helpful throughout the process. Because they had played at our venue before, he was able to provide a lot of helpful information regarding set-up and room layout. And the band was so much fun the day of the wedding. They had everyone out on the dance floor!” (Wedding Wire Review – 3/10/2018)

  15. Dc transit played at our sons new years eve wedding, they were phenomenal, from the ceremony to the cocktail hour through the wedding reception they had everyone talking about how fantastic they were. People never stopped dancing they has 200 people out on the floor all night !! They played till 1 am and honestly we could of kept on going , they are professional but really easy to work with.

  16. Wow. Your crazy if you do not engage The DC Transit Band for your event!! They went out of their way to develop a play list for our event that had a broad age group and a variety of tastes. They even learned several new songs that we had requested. The jazz during our cocktail hour was amazing. Sadly, we could have danced a whole lot longer as the evening went way to fast. The communication during the planning stages was flawless. Thanks again to Cam and his world class musicians. Chuck Lawrence – Sailing Club of the Chesapeake. This was not a wedding but an annual dinner dance. [Weddingwire review]

  17. Sara's Wedding

    DC Transit played at our ceremony and reception–they are amazing! They had the whole room dancing, and our guests loved them. They were still talking about our band days after the wedding! Their band manager, Cam, is very responsive, reliable, and easy to work with. They took all of our requests, and their rate is more than fair. I can’t recommend them enough!

  18. Wedding

    From my first inquiry in February to the end of my daughter’s wedding last weekend, it was clear I was dealing with consummate professionals who love music, thrive on crowd feedback, and can get (and keep) a party going!! Leading up to the event, our venue coordinator confirmed that this was a great band with which to work and that even she had received positive feedback about the band. I have received several comments, texts, messages, and posts from our guests about this fantastic band. As with any big event, there is a lot of behind-the-scenes activity, but the band was front and center for my daughter’s wedding making it “the best day of her life.” Actually, they are masterful at both: the behind-the-scenes activity managed by Cam Towner made the event look effortless. He spoke with my daughter and me before the event to make sure everything was on track, prepared a timeline of the event, a script to ensure order and pronunciations were correct, and added songs to the band’s repertoire for the father-daughter dance and closing numbers. Customer service was OUTSTANDING! The jazz quartet was perfect for the cocktail hour, and I honestly wanted to dance during dinner hour music—it’s all that uplifting! Their specialty though was in creating a fun and festive atmosphere for the reception. The dance floor was never empty, the sound was great, the lead singers were amazing, and the musicians were talented and versatile—just the perfect blend of creativity, energy, and technique. They played just the right mix of current hits, party classics, and special requests. Wow!! We literally had to herd people off the dance floor for the sparkler send-off. I honestly cannot recommend DC Transit Band highly enough! {Wedding Wire Review)
