“Actual Bank Robbers are a complete full service band! They were nothing short of professional from the time we sat down to plan all the way up to our reception farewell on our wedding night. Pedro and Morgan met with us beforehand to learn more about us as a couple and to really tailor our requests to fit our event. On the day of our wedding, they arrived on time and had their setup ready to go. They provided music while our guests arrived, an acoustic set during our cocktail hour, ceremony music, and of course a rockin’ reception show! What blew us away was their ability to emcee the night and keep the flow of the event on track. Our family and friends had such an amazing time dancing the night away. We will forever cherish the memories from our wedding!”

“We hired the Actual Bank Robbers to play at our wedding reception after seeing them just once at a venue downtown. It seemed meant to be when they played back to back songs that we loved and had already talked about wanting for our reception. Plus their show was so fun because they do a great job of involving the crowd.
After officially hiring them, the entire process was seamless and actually really fun (a nice change from the stress of most of wedding planning). After going through their setlist, we met with Pedro and Morgan to go through the timeline of the day and discuss some special requests. Not only did they happily accommodate these requests, they really seemed excited about the wedding! They were patient with us and spent a lot of time with us to understand the vibe we were going for. We knew we were in good hands and that the band was one thing we were not going to have to worry about – we completely trusted them.
When the day came, they were so professional. They made all the right announcements (and right on time) and they knew the perfect songs for dinner versus dancing. It was very clear they had taken the time to prepare for the day. In no time, everyone was up and dancing! Just like when we saw them the first time, they played back to back to back awesome songs and had such a great energy. All of our guests were dancing/jumping, shouting at the top of their lungs, LOVING the band! We didn’t want the night to end. The guests even screamed for an encore from the band, which they happily obliged because they’re so great! We lost count of how many people told us that they loved the band, or asked for their name, how we found them, etc. The band was the main thing that stood out to our guests, by far. Even now, months later, whenever the wedding comes, up the next comment is ALWAYS how great the band was.
It’s so hard to write out how happy we were with ABR. I would 1,000,000% recommend them to any couple.”

“Actual Bank Robbers performed at our wedding in St. Pete Beach in February 2019. It was the most important and best decision of our wedding planning. We initially considered using a DJ, but knew a DJ would not be the same as the performance of a live band. We had first seen ABR perform at a bar in downtown St. Pete, and then again at a 90s festival event at the Ritz in Ybor. Not only is this band immensely talented, but the energy they create is just palpable. We knew these were the guys to create the vibe we wanted at our wedding.
The lead singer, Pedro, met with us a couple of times prior to our wedding to go over all of the details, particular songs we wanted, entrance songs, first dance songs, etc. He’s done so many of these events, it was easy to trust him with the logistics. On the wedding day, everything was perfectly organized. The band was in constant communication with our wedding coordinator, everybody arrived early, and equipment was set up and tested well in advance. They saw to it that nothing would go wrong.
Anthony played acoustic guitar at the wedding ceremony and cocktail hour, setting the stage for the reception. The wedding and cocktail hour were on the beach, and his performance struck the perfect tone.
The reception itself was unbelievable. I’ve been to quite a few weddings, and I have never seen so many people on the dance floor for almost the whole night. I’m sure there were some older folks whose legs were hurting the following day, because they probably haven’t stood up so much in years. Virtually nobody left early, and we must have got the question no less than ten times: ‘where did you find this band?’. So many people told us our wedding was the most fun they’ve ever had at a wedding. My biased opinion agrees with them!
You just can’t say enough good things about this band. The band’s instrumentals, from the guitarists to the bass guitar to the drummer are extraordinarily talented. Pedro has an exceptional gift as a vocalist and an entertainer. Their talent and energy combined have an incredible power to take you to your happiest place!
There is no decision more important than entertainment that will determine how your wedding will be. For us, Actual Bank Robbers was a grand slam that made our wedding spectacular!”

“Our first time hearing The Actual Bank Robbers was at our friends wedding in Key West, Florida. We were engaged and already had a DJ booked for our own wedding, but after hearing them we knew that we just HAD to have them play at ours. The Actual Bank Robbers go above and beyond just a regular band. We now follow them to their various shows around the Tampa Bay area because we just can’t get enough of hearing them play! Our guests were entertained throughout the whole night, which included multiple comments wondering who they are and where they could see them next! They were one of the main reasons our night was so special. Looking back on our night, my husband and I both agreed that watching our guests sing and dance was the highlight of our wedding. We love this band and recommend them for any event!”
