OMG! Unbelievable evening! Words can't express how grateful my husband and I for you and your band! Y'all were phenomenal! Everyone loved your music and all the great songs, just wonderful! Thank you so much!April Thompson, Mother of the Bride – April 8th, 2017
Wow, you guys were the absolute best! Nick and I were so lucky to have you play our wedding. Our guests had so much fun and you kept them on the dance floor all night longKylene and Nick, August 13, 2016
Michael and Permanent Vacation are perfect. Really, there is no other word to describe them! From the time we emailed and met, Michael has been professional, kind, communicative and helpful! Going through the process of planning a big wedding in Charleston can be scary and overwhelming with all the details but with PV as your band, music and entertainment will not be a cause of stress! After carefully planning every detail of the evening, Michael and the band ROCKED! They played every requested song in a way that our guest couldn't leave the dance floor! We danced all night to every single song! Cannot say enough great things about this band - really truly the best! Highly recommend to any bride. You and the band were absolutely amazing!!!!!! I cannot thank you enough for making our night a dream come true! Everyone has been raving about you all-really, y'all ROCKED! Thank you so so so so much!Mr. and Mrs. James Edwards – July 9th, 2016
The biggest THANK YOU from Chayne and me for all of your hard work this past Saturday! Y'all made our wedding night unforgettable! I hope y'all had as much fun as we did. Y'all were AMAZING!Mr and Mrs Chayne Dawley – April 16th, 2016
Y'all were absolutely amazing. So many people have told us this week that y'all were the best wedding band they had ever heard. Thank you so much for everything the past year and a half.Mr. and Mrs. Silver – March 20, 2016
I can't begin to say enough about Permanent Vacation! They played at my sister's wedding 3 years ago and everyone had so much fun that we had to have them back! The energy they bring in just amazing! From the first song to the last, they had the dance floor packed. They learned 3 songs for us for our reception and they were just perfect! The way they interact with the crowd and keep the party going is unreal. I don't think they took a break for longer than a few minutes or at least it seemed that way. Everyone is still talking about the great time they had, mostly because of the band. Michael is a great talent and very easy to work with. He always responded promptly to my mom's emails and made sure our day was PERFECT! The band is VERY reasonably priced for as talented as they are. Our family LOVES Permanent Vacation! My mom is sad there are no more daughters to marry off so we can have them play for us again!! LOL One of our guests did book them for her daughter's wedding next year so we'll be able to party with them again! If you book Permanent Vacation you will not be disappointed. They are simply the BEST WEDDING BAND EVER!!!!Laura Girard, Bride – July 11th, 2015
Permanent Vacation is one of my favorite wedding bands ever. Not only did they do an excellent job at my wedding, but I have been to several other weddings where they performed. They keep the crowd entertained and dancing. People of all ages were on the dance floor and loving the band. My now husband's grandmother said that she could have stayed a few more hours because of the band, and it was 11 pm when she left! The list of songs that they send you is unbelievable and now husband and I had to narrow down our selections because we picked over 100 songs that we would like them to play. I had several people ask me about how I found them or how they could book them after the wedding. The group is fantastic and was so easy to work with. I never had a doubt about their willingness to accommodate me or help make my day as wonderful as possible. With a million other vendors and people that I was juggling, it was nice to know that the band would take care of themselves and put on an amazing show! I highly recommend Permanent Vacation!Sandi Hall, Bride – May 30th, 2015
This weekend was a blast! Y'all were incredible, everyone loved every minute. Thanks for being so flexible!Sarah Rodelsperger – Wedding Planner – June 13, 2015
Now that wedding season is over for me I want to thank Permanent vacation for their band performance at the reception. Band was great. Lot of good feed back.George Scarborough – Father of the Bride – June 6, 2015
Well, we pretty much had the best wedding band EVER! Permanent Vacation was incredible. They are amazingly talented, highly energetic, and enabled us to have a phenomenal reception! We have received countless compliments and rave reviews... Guests of all ages had a blast! They play classics and current hits... They get the party started and keep it going! I am beyond pleased with our decision to have Permanent Vacation as part of our day! I would recommend them to anyone looking to have a memorable and amazingly fun event!!Mr and Mrs Beasley – May 2, 2015
It was a great time-everyone loved the band and are happy when you can come back each year!Barbara Nimocks – City of Goose Creek – May 29, 2015
I wanted to write you to tell you how much everyone enjoyed the music. It was especially meaningful that you led off with Dock of the Bay. Please tell your sax player how much we loved the Junior Walker song. That has always been a favorite of mine. Thank you so much for the special moments and great mix of tunes that helped make the evening so memorable!Vicki Causey – Mother of the Bride – March 14, 2015
My husband and I LOVED THESE GUYS for our wedding, and so did everyone else! I surveyed a huge network of people asking about what wedding bands they'd seen and heard of, how they were, etc. Over and over and over again I kept hearing "Permanent Vacation"...at the rate at which they were being recommended as nonstop fun, keeps everyone on their feet but classy enough for your flower girl and your grandma to jam to, I was sure they were going to be about twice the price. I was so pleased with the price that as soon as I got one of them on the phone, I booked them. They took my exact requests, made some recommendations that totally improved the set list, and were always kind and patient through countless neurotic emails and phonecalls from me. (Oops?) The loaded a rare song recording that I wanted to dance with my dad to and arranged to play me and my husband's "first dance" live. And these guys can go for hours. They play lots of weddings but also events around town, that's when you know they're really fun. Their live recordings on their website don't do them justice. People are still commenting on how great the music was--it was the best thing about our wedding and totally set the mood for a fun and laid-back night. They also can swap from tender, more serious moments and back in a flash, to always keep the mood right. Pick these guys I swear...you won't regret it.Mr and Mrs Dozier – November 15, 2014
Just wanted to thank you again for such an awesome job you and the band did at the wedding. Everyone had a blast and had such wonderful things to say. I will definitely recommend you to other clients!Mother of the Bride – November 15, 2014
You guys killed it! Everyone said how awesome you guys were and thank you for making the night perfect for us. Most of my memories revolve around you guys in some fashion! Thanks again and we will always be grateful.Mr and Mrs Griffin Coxe – October 18, 2014
We booked Permanent Vacation for our destination wedding over a year in advance and they came highly recommended. We just had our wedding last week and they were fabulous! Their set list was great and our guests of all ages couldn't stop raving about them. They performed our father/daughter song live which was simply beautiful. They really got the crowd up and dancing and I didn't stop dancing the whole night. They were great to work with and very quick with responses. They really tailored our wedding to our personal style which was great. We cant wait to get back down to SC to see them again, they were fantastic! The best band ever! Thanks so much guys!Mr and Mrs Michalski – October 11, 2014
PV played our wedding reception at the historic Rice Mill and we couldn't be happier. They were super nice, engaging, responsive, easy to work with and reasonably priced. Great sound and great musicians. They played a wide variety of music and made the reception fun for guests of all ages. Book them! You will not be disappointed!Mr and Mrs Kevin Otis, September 13, 2014
You guys are awesome and everyone had such a great time. Our wedding planner said with all the bands she's worked with you guys were just absolutely awesome. You definitely helped make my day extra special and very memorable. Such a great event!Mr. and Mrs. Holland – August 9th, 2014
Ellen Seale, Strang 60th Celebration Party
I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU for playing the best party ever! I was a guest at Laura Strang’s surprise 60th birthday party. OMG your music was fabulous! You had a roomful of mostly older adults (but very youthful) rocking out till 11:30pm! The set lists, the vocals, the sax, guitars, keyboard…you were all excellent! I danced so much that I didn’t stop to eat the delicious shrimp and other items that the servers were passing. I loved it when you played Cool Me Out by Lamont Dozier. Its one of my very favorite beach songs and you did it superbly!
I live in Charlotte but if I ever want to host a party in Charleston, I know which band to hire!
Thanks again to EACH OF YOU in Permanent Vacation!
I cannot thank the band members of Permanent Vacation enough for the best wedding music ever! From the moment the music started til the very end of our magical wedding night, our guests were rockin' the dance floor...including myself (and I am not a dancer!). Permanent Vacation helped turn our wedding reception into my dream reception...I wanted a big party, lots of fun and dancing and that is just what we got! All night long our guests told us what a great band we had...in fact, when I talk with folks who were at the reception, they still mention what a super band we had playing at the wedding reception. I felt as though the band wanted to make my wedding reception just as special as I did! Months before the wedding we were contacted by the band with questions about the types of music we wanted to have played...as well as what we did not want to have played. The band kept in touch with me right up to the wedding day...it was very comforting - I never worried about one of the biggest pieces of the wedding! From now on, any band I hear at a wedding reception or out in the community, will be compared to Permanent Vacation! Thank you again and again Permanent Vacation!!June 28th, 2014 Mrs. Julia Wormwood, bride
Permanent Vacation played at our wedding on May 31st and they were amazing! They tailor their extensive song list to the specific set that you and your guests would enjoy. The band was originally booked for the date of our wedding but when those plans changed, they reached out to me personally to notify me of the change. They were even willing to travel to Columbia when they usually play around the Charleston area. We were so happy they were available because the music really made the reception! Everyone loved the music and they were great at interacting with guests. Best piece of advice - BOOK EARLY because they get booked quicklyMay 31, 2014 – Mrs. Kirsten Moore, bride
I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for making the Senior Ball such a successful party! Our students are still raving about the time they had last Wednesday and it couldn't have happened without ya'll. I hope we can work together in the near future to continue to make these events so special for our students.Gabrielle Redding, Student Affairs, MUSC
We wanted to once again tell you how much we enjoyed and appreciated having your band help us celebrate our daughter's wedding this past Saturday evening at the Charleston Place. Your professionalism and talented members made it almost impossible to sit on the sidelines and not run to the dance floor!!! We hope you had as much fun as we did and I don't think the energy we felt could've happened without the band enjoying what they do so gracefully and energized. Once again, many thanks!May 3, 2014 – Debbie &Steve Gabrielle, Bride’s Parents
We thoroughly enjoyed the band Permanent Vacation! They have a great vibe for wedding events and are great to work with. We highly recommend them!May 3, 2014 – Mr and Mrs Matt Smith
They came recommended to me by a family member that had seen them at other events. I wasn't sure how everything would be but I am SO HAPPY that we went with them. They are the best wedding band I have ever heard! Everybody in the band was very nice and they had great energy. They have a great variety of music (which is all exactly what I wanted) and they made sure that everything was how I envisioned it. They were interactive and just FUN! I haven't seen so many people up and dancing at a wedding in a long time. THANK YOU!Parrish and John Kline, April 27, 2014
Thank YOU so much for everything! You all made the night what it was and I have gotten so many compliments on the band and how well you carried the evening...which is a lot of why we picked you. :) You know what your doing and we really appreciate you making our special day so much fun!!! Wish we had another event to have you play!!! Take care and watch out for referrals!! :)Tyler and Stefanie Hagan – April 12, 2014
Thank YOU so very much! You all were amazing and everyone raved about how great the band was the next day. Also, thanks for the huge part you played in making the night seamless and keeping us on schedule. I cannot say enough good things about Permanent Vacation and will be recommending you to everyone I know.Mr. and Mrs. Adam Pierson – April 5, 2014
Thank YOU for making our day so special! You guys were hands down amazing! I want you to know that we had countless compliments on how great you were, and gave many referrals on how to book you. You guys really did make the reception complete-we can't thank you enough! We look forward to seeing you play out and about in Chucktown in the future!Mr and Mrs Michael Bradley – March 08, 2014
Thank you for such great entertainment. Everyone loved you guys and we have heard nothing but wonderful comments about the night. Thanks for making it so special for us.Candace Gillespie – MUSC Dean’s Office – March 1st, 2014
Man, did we get lucky!!! Having no experience with bands, we chose Permanent Vacation for our daughter's wedding just on their reviews, but quickly realized we had made the perfect choice! Working with these guys was pure pleasure. They stay in close touch, ask your opinion on any decision, give you the most personalized evening anyone could expect. And then there's the talent!! Their sound was just what we asked for...a mixture of beach, pop and current music. Cant say enough about the wonderful time had by all. To really put this in perspective, we told the band, based on the extraordinary performance they gave us, that they didn't charge enough!! Now that's a true compliment coming from the bride's parents! You cant go wrong, for any event, with Permanent Vacation. They have our most sincere "Thank You" and our highest recommendation!Debra Tyson – Mother of the Bride – February 22, 2014
You guys ROCKED!!..The reception could not have been better...I have had sooo many calls about it and how much fun it was!! GREAT JOB!! We are official "PV groupies"!! Thanks for everything.Debbie Dodds – Mother of the Bride – February 08, 2014
Just wanted to send a note of thanks to all of Permanent Vacation for playing our wedding a few weeks ago at Belfair Plantation. We had so much fun that night with you guys! Most of our guests were from out of state and they are still talking about how much fun they had that night and how great you guys were! Scott had said from the very beginning we wanted to make sure that everyone had a great time and you guys were essential to that! We hope you guys enjoyed it as well. Again, thank you for being such a fun group of guys!Scott and Dee Dee Bailey, November 23, 2013
Y'all were so awesome at our wedding. Couldn't have picked a better group to play at our reception. Had multiple compliments on the music. Y'all rocked it! :)Ashley Hall, September Bride!
You all are so wonderful!!! Everyone commented to me how they just HAD to get up and dance because of your music. Thanks for being so accommodating when it started raining. I thought we were in real trouble at that point but you handled it beautifully. Party On!!!Vickie Dennis – October 19th, 2013 – Anniversary Party
THANK YOU GUYS! We had such an amazing time and all of our guests raved about you guys! Thank you again for making it a night we will NEVER forget!Mr and Mrs Daniel Wilson – October 5th, 2013

It made Polly and I so happy to see everyone dancing and having a great time. Thanks again and hope to see you play again real soon.Tom and Polly McElwee, bride’s parents – July 20, 2013
Thank you soo much!! You guys were wonderful and everyone had a great time dancing the night away! We could't have asked for a better band!! Thanks again for everything!Mr and Mrs Jeremy Bryson – June 29, 2013

I also want to thank you for your all of your prep and your patience in planning. We loved working with you!Mr and Mrs Matt Schall – April 27th, 2013

Y'all were fantastic! All of the middle aged people have stiff knees but it was well worth it!!!Mother of the bride – March 23, 2013

IF someone didn't make us leave we all probably would have stayed all night...We obviously had a great time.thank you guys for making our wedding a BLAST! We will definitely come out to see you guysMr and Mrs Steve Schwade – March 23, 2013
Thank you thank you thank you! You made our wedding day! Everything went so smoothly. All I heard all night was how great the band was.Dena Metzler March 9, 2013
You guys were amazing and truly made the party. Thank you so much for coming to Columbia and playing at our wedding! We have so many friends and family members that are still talking about the music. I am going to recommend you to others if that is ok. Thanks for making our day perfect.Mr and Mrs Michael Greene – Jan 19th, 2013
We had an amazing time and are so happy with PV! You guys rocked it!!!Mark and Jill Klotzbach – November 17th, 2012
This is THE band to have at any event! I can absolutely say it would NOT have been the same without them. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to know the lead singer xx. For our ceremony, on the lawn, PV somehow got everything set up and we had beautiful music as we processed down the aisle and our officiant and reader both had mics; I had no idea this was possible?! Then, the real party started. Even though I'm not sure 'honey bee' is a regular on the set list ;) they played it for our first dance, no questions asked, and I will NEVER forget it! The party was HAPPENIN' that night and continued the entire time...DJ for the last half was super energizing and fun to go out on!! Thank you for everything!!Mr. and Mrs. Sigman – September 29th, 2012
I just wanted to say that you guys did a wonderful job at our wedding on 9/15 at Wild Dunes! We received great compliments about you guys from our guests! If anyone needs a band is Charleston I would recommend you guys in a heart beat!Sarah and Justin Aycock – September 15th, 2012
Cara and I were so happy that y'all could be apart of our special day. Y'all rocked it and I knew you would. Everyone we talked to raved about the reception and especially Permanent Vacation!Cara and Brandon Cochran – August 18th, 2012
Absolutely, without a doubt, BEST BAND in Charleston!! They got the party started and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire evening. At 10:25 right before the last song, the dance floor was still packed solid! Michael and the rest of the guys learned "Sweet Child of Mine" just for my daughter's dance with her dad and sang it like they had been doing it for years! We surprised her with the song....and it was one of the best moments from the day! If you want a band that will appeal to everyone in your crowd, they are the band for you!!!Patti Trzcinski, Mother of the Bride – August 4th, 2012
Thank YOU! That was honestly (I know I'm biased) the best wedding I've ever been to. Everyone had SO much fun and I'm so glad that you guys were able to stay for a little while longer. So many people have asked for the name of the band and your contact information. Thank you again for making our reception the best ever!!!!!!!! I can't tell you how much it means to us that you guys helped our day be even more special!!!!Mr and Mrs Todd Farrior – Beaufort, SC – May 12, 2012
You guys were awesome... A million compliments!!! You all made my night amazing and I would highly recommend you, thanks again!Mr. and Mrs. Wheatley – William Aiken House – April 6th, 2012
We wanted to thank you for the great music! Everyone is still talking about "the band" and all the songs. We even debated which songs were the best or our favorites. Of course my favorite was Super Freak! I know at your music made the party. Thanks a million! We will always remember the party and all had a great time.Bunny Berdick – Berdick Birthday Bash – March 17, 2012
THANK Y'ALL! It was an absolutely perfect weekend and y'all just added to the excitement of it all! Harrison and I couldn't have imagined a more fun, enthusiastic band for our wedding reception. Thank you for everything you all did to make it easy and so much fun for all of us (and our guests who had a blast)!Mrs. and Mrs. Trammell – January 7th, 2012
You guys were truly phenomenal! No one wanted the night to end as you guys had the party going (even us old guys who tried to keep "gatoring" alive). I look forward to our next opportunity to enjoy PV. Thank you so much for making LaBruce and Harrison's wedding so special.Steve Boggan, Father of the Bride – January 7th, 2012
Everyone was so excited with y'all!! AMAZING!!! I could not believe the At Last version y'all performed!! Y'all made the party! Thanks Again for the wonderful entertainment!Mr. and Mrs. Ben Verdone – November 19th, 2011
A great big THANK YOU to Permanent Vacation for the super time you provided for everyone at the wedding...the music was wonderful and the energy was contagious! The Bride and Groom were extremely happy!Mother of the Bride, Ray-Lloyd Wedding – September 9th, 2011

Thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception! The music was wonderful, and all of the guests really enjoyed themselves!

Thanks again!Beth and Andrew Bellebaum – July 9th, 2011
Thank ya'll so much for performing at the reception!! Ya'll were amazing, and could not have done a better job than you did. Everyone commented on how great "the band" was.

You guys rocked last night! Everyone loved you. You brought the party. We loved the song selection!Bryan and Jessica Knight – June 18th, 2011
Thanks so much to everyone in the band for an amazing performance at our wedding!! We appreciate you working with us and taking the time to listen to our ideas and share some of your own experiences as well. Everything came together very well and we couldn't have asked for a better band to help us celebrate the start of our new life!Ashley & Grant McAnulty – June 11th, 2011
Thank you SO MUCH for playing Jenny and Chris' wedding on Friday at William Aiken... y'all rocked it as usual. You know you're one of my favorites, so I'm sad I won't see y'all again for awhile! You get the crowd going like hardly anyone else can. You're the best.Sara Hosch – Event Coordinator, Southern Protocol – www.southernprotocol.com – June 4th, 2011

Thank you to the band for my daughter's wedding on May 27th. The music was amazing - something for everyone. I saw people dancing that never dance. You drew the party together and made it the celebration we wanted! We could not have been more pleased with your services at what we thought was a reasonable price. We heard nothing but praise for the entertainment! Thanks again.Mother of the Bride, Lyons-Burkett Wedding – May 27th, 2011
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You MADE my wedding! You played the perfect mix of music for the age groups we had there. Everyone had such a great time! The next day a friend said to me that the sign of a great wedding is a packed dance floor until the end of the night - and that's what we had!Adam and Lauren Comar – May 20th, 2011
You guys ROCKED at our wedding! Thanks so much for providing such a great time. We had a blast, and I have had lots of comments from our guests on how fun you guys were! You made everything so easy and for that I applaud you. Definite good time, and I can't wait to see you guys again in August at my friend's wedding!Sydney and Lauren Kell – May 15th, 2011
We really would love to thank you for making our wedding reception one that we will never forget! You guys have a amazing band with such energy! We had such a good experience working with you before the wedding with putting all the songs together and coordinating the times for everything! You were so kind and helpful with all of my questions and that makes planning a wedding easy when everyone you work with is so helpful! We do believe that we had our fairy tale wedding and you guys were a big part that made it such a special day! We will be giving your name out to everyone! We are hoping to get back to Charleston to see you guys sometime soon! Thank you from the bottom of our heart for everything!!!Michael and Jennifer Anderson – May 7th, 2011

You guys had everyone dancing and made the reception a blast!!! Thank you all soooo much!Trey and Louise Hardy – May 6th, 2011
WOW - what an amazing band you all are!!! Our reception would not have been the same without you guys!!

You all did an awesome job. We had a blast dancing and my dad loved getting to sing with y'all. Thank you so much!Mr and Mrs Jeremy Anderson – March 19, 2011
I wanted you all to know, you guys did a fabulous job at the wedding October 23rd. I feel like I was in a whirlwind of chaos, and I didn't even get to talk with any of you. Thank you for being so flexible. My husband and I are not big planners, so I know there was no set schedule for the evening. Thank you for making our day so enjoyable for our friends, family, daughter (she was smitten with the band), my husband (also smitten with the band, thank you for letting him sing and get it out of his system) and me. I will definitely spread the word to friends and colleagues to book you guys for future events.Mr. and Mrs. Danny Porter – October 23, 2010
We had a blast! Thank you for making our reception so much fun! I will let everyone know to book you in the futureTracey and Bobby Kenneth Walters – October 17, 2010
Saturday night was an absolute blast - thank you so much for helping us throw such a great party! We had a fantastic time dancing the night away with you all, especially during Sweet Caroline. Everyone from the age of three to the age of 80 was out there on the dancefloor at some point and I know there wasn't a single person who didn't have a good time. Please tell the entire gang that we are so grateful for all that you did at our wedding - we will have amazing memories to last a lifetime! Also, thank you, Michael, for all of your help throughout the entire process. We appreciate how professional you were and would recommend Permanent Vacation to anyone!Amanda and Jared Love – October 16, 2010
THANK YOU for being such an absolutely AMAZING band. I will always remember how much fun Bill and I had with y'all, as well as all of my friends & family. My friends are still going on and on about how much fun it was :) You have my recommendation without fail. Y'all are the best... truly great at what you do.Cailla and Bill – October 2, 2010
Thank you thank you thank you for creating the PERFECT reception atmosphere for us. You have no idea how many people have commented on "the band" and how you guys made it the most fun wedding reception they've been to. I would say more than 20 people have said close to those exact words. We had so much fun and I can't imagine anything making it any better. Thank you so much for being a part of our wedding day - a part that everyone remembers and enjoyed the MOST! Thank you so much! You will be getting some phone calls from Georgetown. The Ribbon Club (society club) is interested in having PV for one of their functions. Also, a guest's friend is getting married next year and highly recommended PV. Little did I know that we didn't need food, cake, decorations, etc. because the only thing people are talking about is PERMANENT VACATION!!!Scott and Meredith Gvozdas – DeBordieu Island, Georgetown, SC – September 25, 2010
Dear Michael, THANK YOU and all of PV. You guys were fantastic!Melissa Lunsford – Charleston Celebrations, LLC – http://charlestoncelebrations.com

Dear Michael and the whole PV gang,Stefanie and Tradd Robinson – July 10, 2010
I cannot tell you how happy we are that you played at our wedding! Everyone had the absolute best time, and I totally credit you all for that! Playing your normal set music is fantastic, but Mrs. Robinson and some Hootie and the Blowfish was the icing on the cake. Tradd and I cannot thank you all enough for your talent and energy because it made our night perfect! I knew after MUSC Charity Ball that we were in for a treat, but you guys took it to the next level! You are all professional, talented, and just a pleasure to work with in every possible way. Thank you, again! I will certainly be recommending you!!
THANK YOU so much for making our night special. We had such a great time and everyone is still talking about how great your band was!!! Thanks again and we will recommend you to all of our friends in the future.Mr. and Mrs. Jared Luther Long – June 26, 2010
Mamie & Thomas Simmons – June 5, 2010
THANKS! I cannot count the number of people that mentioned how great the band was. You guys did an incredible job of keeping the energy going the entire night. You mixed up the music and did a great job of playing "non-traditional" wedding music - the song selection was great. It really was a great time and I couldn't have imagined it being any better. Everyone had a great time!Melissa and Ryan – May 29, 2010
THANK YOU!! You guys were absolutely amazing. Erik and I cannot thank you enough for putting on an incredible show last Saturday night. Everyone has been raving about you guys because you really made the night a success. It was wonderful to see all my friends, my parents and my parents' friends out on the dance floor at the same time. Thank you so much for a wonderful wedding reception and if you ever need a recommendation please let me know and I'll be thrilled to sing your praises.Catherine and Erik – March 6, 2010
Thank you for being a part of our wedding. The reception went so well, and obviously you can take a large amount of credit for that. We have been told by so many people that they just had the time of their lives, and it is always followed up with how great the band was. People are truly still talking about it. In fact, we just got home from NY Sunday night from visiting some family that was at the wedding, and they all said on separate occasions how much fun they had dancing to great music. The flow of things couldn't have been any better!! I remember looking around at some point during the night and thinking, "Is there anyone here that isn't out dancing?!?!" Thank goodness we had that long room or there wouldn't have been enough room for everyone to shake it!! I watched people dance that I have been to several different weddings with and have never seen them step on the dance floor. It really was crazy, and to top it off, Chris and I had the time of our lives with y'all!Chris and Joyce Hanclosky – April 10, 2009
Really, Chris, my parents, and I could not have asked for it to go better. We played around with the idea of having a DJ at some point early in the wedding planning, and boy we are glad we made the choice we did. We were so happy with Permanent Vacation...absolutely perfect! Also, thanks for all the help in planning. I was asking for a lot of help right there at the end, and I appreciate your patience and input.
Thanks so much Permanent Vacation (and especially you, Michael, for all your help with everything)! You rock!!
You guys were SOOO MUCH fun at the wedding!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! It was perfect!! We have received so many comments on how fun the band was at the weddding. You made it perfect for us!!Sarah MacLeod – April 4, 2009
Thank you for playing for us! As you could probably tell by the vast majority of time I spent on the dance floor, I had a wonderful time dancing the night away. I knew all the young people would be dancing, but when I saw my 60 year old dad and 85 year old grandmother out on the floor, I knew everyone else was enjoying the music as well :) Anyways, thanks again! We had a great time and are looking forward to seeing you guys play in the future!Kelly Martin Greene – March 28, 2009
I just wanted to thank you and your band for all of your help and hard work yesterday. You guys were fabulous! You were wonderful to communicate with pre-wedding, you arrived on time looking professional and excited to perform, you stayed on time with the schedule that the bride and I had created, and you made sure that the crowd had a WONDERFUL time. You even helped out with numerous things that were not required of you! I could not have asked for a more kind, professional, or accommodating band to work with. I will definitely be giving lots of brides your name in the future. I look forward to working with you again very soon!Amanda Assey – Southern Chic Weddings and Events – January 17, 2009
I was very impressed with your flexibility and willingness to perform in brutal conditions at the Daniel Island Family Cup Stadium on Tuesday night [24°F outdoors]. A band that's easy to work with!? What a concept! We look forward to sharing many more sites with youSteve Wenger – CEO Duvall Catering & Event Design – November 18, 2008
Thank you so much for the wonderful job that you and the rest of the band did at our wedding! You all really helped make our special day even more memorable -- from getting the crowd up and dancing to serenading my grandmother -- every aspect of your show was just perfect and a huge hit with our guests! People are still talking about how awesome y'all were and I can't tell you how many times someone came up to me that night and asked how I managed to find such a great band.Jennie and Don – October 5, 2008
We definately plan to return to the Charleston area for vacations in the future and will be certain to look up where y'all are playing!
Thanks again for everything!
I've received so many compliments of how great the band was and I agree 110%! Your music and the timing of that music were absolutely perfect and kept the party's tempo just as it should be. I only wish we could have kept going for a few more hours!Scott Register, Father of the Bride – October 4, 2008
Please pass on our sincere thanks to all the band members.. they were truly awesome and each of them contributed to making our daughter's wedding a truly memorable event. Our gratitude cannot be overstated!
Lynne and I will provide the strongest possible endorsement of Permanent Vacation to anyone looking for the highest quality band to play at any event, especially a wedding. Feel free to have anyone contact us for referrals.
I cannot thank you enough for everything you did, it was absolutely wonderful! Ya'll did a fantastic job, I have never in my life been to such a great party and the funny thing is, I gave it! I have given your name out at least a dozen times and am working on letters of recommendations for your use.Lynne Register, Mother of the Bride – October 4, 2008
You helped give Dee Dee and Barrett the best night of their lives and for that I will be eternally grateful.
Thank you again for everything,
We just wanted to thank you all for playing our wedding August 30th. You all truly made the night. Everyone raves about your music and how well you let all the guest "interact" with you (hope you got all your cow bells and tambourines back :))! Guests from Kentucky want to know just how far you are willing to travel to play! Not only was the music great but my mother said you were so helpful the day of, with last minute things above and beyond your call of duty. We couldn't have been more happy that we chose you all. We will definitely be hitting your shows whenever we are in town!Libby and Will – August 30, 2008
Thanks so much!

Thank you, again, for an excellent show at our wedding, May 21, Folly Beach!Michael and Bennett Brown
All of our guests are STILL talking about how great y'all were and how much fun they had.
Y'all really made our evening so much fun and special and we are so appreciative!
Y'all Rock! Thank you so much for a great time at our wedding. We have had so many people inquire about the group! Words cannot thank you enough for the great time and music! Tim and I look forward to hearing you perform again! Y'all are awesome! Thank you again!Bebe and Tim Pickett
You guys (and gal) were great. My wife and I can't begin to tell you how many compliments we got on the band. I hope you were able to hear some of the compliments yourself. I hope you know how much you helped it live up to what I wanted. I only have one complaint. I'm still sore from the dancing. I was one of the guys on the floor with his feet up in the air (of course by request only). I haven't danced that much since high school. Thanks again and I hope to be able to see you play again soon. If you need any recommendations, and I doubt you do, let me know. Thanks again!Mike Horton – January 22, 2007
I just wanted to let you know that we were all VERY HAPPY with your performance for our wedding. Complements continue to pour in from our guests about the band and the music! Everyone was dancing and having a great time...and we have you to thank for it!! It was perfect-- and your group accommodated our every need! We are so glad that we chose you for our wedding -- Thank you for making our celebration a success!Kelli Hall – October 21, 2006
