Client Comments:


The Beamers "Rocked" our event last Saturday night. You can tell how good a band is by the number of people on the dance floor. The dance floor was filled every dance. You obviously knew what songs would please this group.

I have had numerous phone calls and emails from the attendees telling me how good the band was, and asking me to consider booking The Beamers again. Thanks for making me look so good.

Sorry for the late response. We returned from our honeymoon on Monday and have been going 100 miles per hour since then. Hope you guys had a safe trip back to Austin. I cannot thank you enough for the great performance that you (and the rest of The Beamers) gave at our wedding. Carey and I have had a lot of people comment on how good the band was. Thank you for learning the new material we requested and thank you for keeping them ON THEIR FEET!!! Y'all made the perfect night for me and my new husband, Carey! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I'm glad that you all had fun as well and enjoyed some good food! Please count on us whenever you need a referral. We are still overjoyed about the performance by The Beamers!

Thank you again,

Wedding Reception at the Sky Room Incarnate Word University / Sat. October 22, 2011

The Beamers were fantastic for my daughter's wedding reception. The event could not have been more perfect and everyone loved the music. A big thanks to the band for working with us months in advance to handle my daughter's long and ever-changing song request list. And my personal thanks for allowing me to practice and play along with the band on that special song for my daughter during the reception. A real surprise that brought tears to her eyes. Planning a wedding reception is always stressful, but you made the process so much easier. I hope another opportunity comes along where we can book The Beamers again.

"The Beamers are absolutely fantastic, and we couldn't have asked for a more memorable evening on the dance floor!  The fact that they could play so may diverse songs that kept all generations dancing until midnight is a true testament of their talent.  We think the original artists would even give them a big thumbs up!  They accommodated all of our special requests, which made the planning process much easier.  It was such a pleasure to work with them to make our dream wedding a reality!  Thank you Beamers!"

My name is Mike Sorenson. I’m the president of the Southern Drag Boat Association (SDBA). The largest and oldest drag boat sanctioning body in the United States. We held our 35th awards banquet and hired the Beamers to play at our event. I received raving reviews from all who attended (330 members).. Many said who ever chose the Beamers did an excellent job. I had heard the Beamers play many years myself, and was still very impressed with the music they played along with the variety offered and even a few special requests… I’m definitely going to use them again in the future and would highly recommend this band "Beamers" to any one who wants to use a live band. The Beamers are very professional and great to work with.

Thanks, Mike and Nita Sorenson

 You guys were great!! I sent some feedback to the GIG Master site and it was all good. " I would whole-heartily recommend the Beamers for any ones party. They sounded great and I had many compliments from my guests. They were not the low bid but were well worth the price. They were personable and fun but maintained a professional distance as not to upstage the guest of honor. I will definitely hire The Beamers for my next function"

The Beamers are a wonderful & Talented Band. They are very professional. Working with Rick was fantastic. He recommended songs, was very accommodating of the mixture of music we wanted played at our wedding reception. It is so difficult to find a band that plays a mixture of a little country, latin, today's favorite music and classic oldies. The Beamers are the band that plays it all. The dance floor was filled with family and friends of all ages. The Beamers knew what to play to keep that dance floor full! After the wedding we still hear how great the band at the reception was. We did not have a long reception, and The Beamers were great at performing in the time we had needed. If we are ever in need of a band again, we will definitely contact The Beamers. We will also recommend The Beamers to anyone looking for that perfect band.

Thank you, Beamers for your help in making our wedding reception fabulous!

We have already received several compliments about The Beamers and I will certainly be recommending you to anyone I hear that is looking for a band!

Thank you so much for being so responsive and accommodating and for making our reception so much fun!!

Dear Rick and The Beamers,

Wow! What a great wedding! Our friends and family can't stop talking about what a fun time they had, dancing the night away to their favorite songs. We wanted to make our wedding a memorable one and it certainly was, thanks to you! The reception turned out exactly as we had envisioned- a great big party with the dance floor always full of people. Thank you for being so flexible, professional, and amazing at what you do! We will definitely recommend you to anyone having a wedding, anniversary, bat mitzvah, or party! You can't beat a live band to make any celebration a success! And you certainly can't beat The Beamers!!!

The Beamers did a wonderful job for The Women's Club Of Greater Lakeway "Spring Dance 2006". The event was held in the Rio Grande Room at the Lakeway Inn, Lakeway Texas on Friday March the 10th. We appreciate their professionalism and the fantasic array of songs played by the band including their rendition of a few special songs that we had made asked them to play.They truley gave a wonderful performance and played tirelessly for many hours. We would be happy to recommend them at any time in the future.

Rick, just wanted to thank you and the band for a very special evening. Everyone enjoyed the music so much and are raving about The Beamers. The fact that there were so many still dancing at 10:30 is a miracle in Lakeway. You all were great! I really enjoyed working with you and thank you again for a super night!

Rick and gang,

Thank you so much for playing for the THIRD YEAR in a row for our volunteers at Servant Celebration 2004! You guys are awesome! Your musical talents combined with your versatile repertoire always make for a fun event! Our volunteer base ranges from children to our "Pacesetter" group, which are 50+, and you always manage to get them ALL out on the dance floor. Your band information has been requested by our members numberous times for other events, which is further proof of your popularity with our group. You have always been easy to work with and we never worry about reliability when dealing with your group. Servant Celebration is by far our most popular event of the year and The Beamers play a huge part in it's popularity. We wish you all a great year and look forward to partying with you again in 2005!Sincerely,

Joni Kendrick / Director of Operations / Austin Christian Fellowship / May 2004

The Beamers played our wedding reception at the One World Theatre and they couldn't have done a better job.  They are a fun party band with a great sound.  They can perform such an impressive variety of music, from Sinatra and Motown to Jerry Jeff Walker, Fleetwood Mac and Outkast... they do it all so well.  The Beamers had everyone out on the dance floor enjoying the celebration.  Rick and The Beamers are true professionals that will not disappoint. 

Brandy Cappdona / Wedding Reception / April 2004

Dear Rick and the guys,

What a fun time we had at Kevin's party! Thanks for making the evening so great! We have laughed much over the fact that my family was on the dance floor pretty uch the entire time. Not sure what that says about everyone ... Anyways, you guys sounded terrific and we had so much fun! Looking forward to seeing you agin at another event!

Leslie Kerner / Surprise B-day party / April 2004

The Beamers played for our annual formal this year and they were fabulous!! I
recieved tons of compliments on them. I was even told that they were the best
band in years of this event and that they even sounded just like the beatles
on one song!haha! The Beamers worked well with a crowd of 800 college kids
and got everyone out on the dance floor to have a blast, and I mean everyone!
They were a very entertaining and enjoyable band for such a large group of
people! There was something for everyone and I know everyone had a great time!

Amy, Kappa Alpha Theta, Texas A&M University / February 2004

Awesome party! Everyone loved you guys...your songlist had something for
everyone...and I had a email from one of our VPs saying 'the band was
and that this was one of the 'best parties on record'! I did want to get
your mailing address...mind to send when you get a chance? Thanks!

Maureen / Wells Fargo Bank / Austin / December 2003

Dear Rick,

The Gala is over and all that remains are fond memories and glorious praise. Or at least that's what on hopes. I can honestly say we are experiencing both. I've received great comments about The Beamers. The guests really enjoyed your music and your style. Thanks for being on time and attentive to our needs. I greatly appreciate it. With so much to think about that night, the one thing I was sure of was the band. I hope we get to work together again.

Best wishes,
