Welcome Engaged Couples! Congratulations on taking the plunge!!! In the often stressful and drawn out wedding planning process, let $P make your decision of hiring a live band for your reception the easiest thing you'll ever do. Look no further, $P has everything covered!

Having the experience that only a "wedding" band has makes all the difference in the world. This is your night, your once in a lifetime and your happily ever after and there's no room for error or do-overs. There's a reason all the rave reviews about not only the band, but Lisa's involvement from start to finish.

Lisa, $P's front woman, essentially becomes your entertainment planner and coordinator. She works with you on the layout and timing of the evening, orchestrate and emcee your evening's events and timeline, and assists to make sure everything moving smoothly and efficiently. As for special songs, (1st dance, mother/son, father/daughter, wedding party, etc) the band can learn special dance or song requests and has even occasionally accompanied your "guest" musicians and singers. All Ipod music needed is provided throughout the evening- including playlists for grand march, cocktail hour, dinner music, garter toss, bouquet toss and break music. All music and set lists can be customized to your liking and specified when filling out our special event packet, which helps to know more about you and your event. If you prefer, your personal Ipod and playlists can be used. Included for convenience is a wireless microphone and use of the PA for toasts and special announcements. Looking for something fun and different from the norm, think about adding karaoke service, with a 1 hour minimum block of time required for karaoke. Nothing says a good time like crooning a tune karaoke-style.

CEREMONY MUSIC

In addition to wedding reception entertainment, $P offers wedding ceremony entertainment services providing live or pre-recorded music for
  • guest seating
  • procession,
  • bridal procession
  • interlude
  • unity candle
  • recessional.

Ceremony music packages include sound system, wireless microphone for officiant/readers and music. There are several packages to choose from for your ceremony music and can be personalized to your liking.

As Seen on The Knot

Having never seen this band play before, my husband and I went out on a limb booking this band for our wedding. What did it for us was the variety in music the band offered/played, their responsiveness/follow-up to see if we'd made a decision on a band to book, and their willingness to accommodate our budget. If you have any reservations regarding the professionalism of this band, do not worry! The band was very responsive and planned ahead. The questions Stimpack asked ahead of time (such as availability of the right type of power outlets) set my mind at ease that things would go off that day without a hitch. In terms of the music itself, we had a mix of young and old guests at our wedding, we got married in May, and are still receiving compliments on the music at our wedding. The dance floor always had people on it, which was exactly what we wanted when we decided to book a band. My husband and I have ABSOLUTLY ZERO regrets in booking this band, if we could do it all over again, this band would be the first thing we booked! Aside from marrying my husband, this band was the best part of our wedding!!

I don't even know where to begin. They were absolutely incredible in every way. From the performance and quality of music, to accommodating requests, to learning new songs, to including guests in the performance, they were everything we could have hoped for and more. More than a few of our guests stated they were the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. You will not be disappointed, they will be a wonderful addition to your special day!

I would recommend $TIMULU$ PACKAGE to anyone asking. My husband and I are huge lovers of live music so there was never any question that we wanted to have a band at our wedding, we just wanted to pick the right one. And we definitely did. Stimulus Package was amazing and exceeded our expectations in so many ways. First and foremost, they are talented and because of that it’s so much fun to be in their presence. Wedding receptions are their bread and butter – hands down, they nailed it. But it was some of their other work that really blew me away. They did a beautiful job performing music for our ceremony. For the ceremony, I had very specific songs in mind – none of which were very common for a wedding processional, they were rock songs more or less. And Stim Pack was able to take the songs that we wanted to incorporate into our day (for one reason or another) and turn them into these lovely instrumental versions that were perfect for the ceremony. Stim Pack had also planned to play acoustic sing-a-long songs at the campfire after the reception officially ended. Unfortunately, our campfire got rained out (more on that below), but it was great that Stim Pack was so accommodating to all of our crazy requests nonetheless. They had no problem at all switching from instrumental rock songs to an awesome dance party (with karaoke) to an acoustic sing-along set. I also danced with my Dad to a pretty atypical daddy-daughter song – Marshall Tucker Band’s Can’t You See is one of our favorite songs. I would have loved the opportunity to see MTB perform that song live with my Dad but the Stim Pack cover was probably just as amazing! It meant a lot to us both that they really made sure that they performed the song just right. I also felt like Lisa was our pseudo wedding planner. She helped come up with unique ideas for our reception and weighed in on the flow of the night. She was honest about what she thought would work and what wouldn’t work, which was refreshing and SO very helpful. If I had a not-so-great idea, she had this brilliant balance of nudging me in the right direction while being flexible enough to ensure the vision I had for the day remained intact. Honestly, she made the otherwise sometimes stressful wedding planning process So. Much. Easier. and her execution was incredible! And finally, on paper our wedding could probably seem like a total disaster. We had an exclusively outdoor tented wedding reception – and by tented I mean semi-tented. Key pieces of the tent weren’t setup properly which would have been fine except for the INSANE thunderstorm that blew through with torrential downpours and wind that took down a 100+ year oak tree. So we had an incredibly wet wedding reception – a leaky tent and a mud-pit for a dance floor. And on top of all of that, because of the rain, dinner service was delayed a looong time. So, can you believe that we had not one unhappy guest at our wedding? Stim Pack jumped in and turned the storm into the party of our lives. Nobody cared that dinner was late or that their clothes were ruined because they were too busy dancing and singing karaoke. I’m not sure other bands would have handled the circumstances very well, let alone embraced them to create the most fun and memorable time for everyone! Thank you, SP!

We loved having $timulus Package play at our wedding! They did an awesome job from start to finish! Lisa did a great job MC'ing during the cocktail hour, wedding party introductions, and throughout dinner. We also enjoyed playing the "Shoe Game" after dinner which was hilarious! The band sounded awesome all night and they did a great job playing a mix of classics and current hits! We also enjoyed being able to select the iPod music for the breaks. We would strongly recommend $timulu$ Package to everyone!!!

Booking with $TIMULU$ PACKAGE was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Lisa was extremely helpful from initial booking until the day of the wedding. We were confident going into the "Big Day" that everything would be taken care of. During the wedding, the entire group went above and beyond our expectations! Our guests of both young and old were dancing and singing alongside their energetic sets. Very professional, fun musicians who put on a show that made our evening THAT much more memorable.

Lisa and the band not only played for our wedding, they helped with the ceremony music, lining up the wedding party and keeping our night on track. They learned a funny kids song and rocked the polka!  We would suggest Lisa and Stimulus Package for your wedding or any other event you want live professional music at. You guys made our night fabulous!!  Everyone needs more cow bell!

$timulu$ Package was a lot of fun! They kept the crowd involved, and even let the groom go up on stage and sing a couple songs with them! Lisa was a great asset in the planning process, as well as making sure things run smoothly throughout the evening. They can play a variety of music, and will cater to your preference. I've received so many compliments from my wedding guests who absolutely loved this band!

Can't say enough about these guys. Great and professional communication that made everything go seamlessly. One of the most important elements to me was getting the crowd involved, and boy did they! Lisa and the band even learned a song I loved the afternoon of the sound check! Talk about going the extra mile and a half.  Do not hesitate to book $timulu$ Package. I was the
lucky enough to get them for our reception because someone did just that, hesitated. Thinking of putting them on my thank you card list.... Thanks again guys for making the night so great!

What can I say....Stimulus Package is amazing! From the moment we decided with having them play our reception, it was nothing but easy to contact and talk to Lisa and she had very helpful ideas that I would have overlooked. Stimulus Package was exactly what we were looking for to get our party rocking! I have nothing but the best to say about this band! I would recommend them to everyone I know for any event! I can actually say I made a new friend and made amazing memories with Lisa. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

$TIMULU$ PACKAGE really turned our wedding reception into the rocking party that we were looking for! Great music, interaction with the crowd and amazing set-lists! They were super organized and professional, as well. Please consider them if you are looking for a great time!

As the parents of the groom we wanted to hire a band that would cover the wide range of musical tastes for all of our guests. Stimulus Package delivered! We had so many comments about how the band "made the reception." At the end of the evening there was still a huge crowd on the dance floor. We'd definitely recommend them to others looking for a band that can do it all.

When we set out on planning our wedding my husband and I decided that our main focus was not going to be the look it was going to be wining and dining our guests and we both said we want a band that will keep them on the dance floor till the end of the night!! Our dance floor was packed until midnight and we had to kick them off at the end of the night!! They did an amazing job and kept it interaction but not overkill!! Very good and professional during dinner and then let loose for the dance portion!! We have already recommended them to others!! :)

Our wedding was about our guests, and we wanted to make sure our guests had an incredible time. The ceremony was perfect, the dinner was perfect, and $TIMULU$ PACKAGE...rocked!

As a detail-oriented Bride, I planned everything down to the "T". Lisa helped make sure I didn't miss anything and that I had covered all the necessary details. She is extremely easy to work with and will help make sure your event is perfect!

Here we are a week after the wedding and we have received so many compliments from our guests on how great the band was and the variety of music they knew. To me, they are much more than just a band though, they are entertainers and will keep you entertained all night long.

We are very happy with our decision to have $TIMULU$ PACKAGE play and hope to catch them playing again in the future.

$TIMULU$ Package is the perfect wedding band. A band brings so much energy and passion to a dance and celebration, and Lisa and Stimulus Package brought that energy and passion and more. The band is extremely easy to work with and goes above and beyond to help you plan the reception. The band is very flexible and open to try anything. Their sound is truly awesome- this is a professional band that loves what they do and do it to a standard of excellence. The range and variety of music they can play is truly impressive and they tailor it to you. My wife and I could not have asked for a better band- they truly brought our Wedding Day to a whole new level. We are filled with gratitude for their performance and the wonderful way they conduct business. I could not place a higher recommendation than $TIMULU$ PACKAGE.

Stimulus Package was amazing!! I have worked as a wedding coordinator for upscale weddings in Nashville so when it came to my wedding I knew how important responsiveness, professionalism, and flexibility are- and they were all that and more!!! They kept the crowd engaged the entire time. We are still receiving compliments on how fun the band and reception were. A band can make or break your reception and they absolutely made our wedding the best!!! Thank you Stimulus Package!! The Leinie's love "y'all"!

Stimulus Package did a great job playing at our wedding reception. Honestly I did not think that the reviews online could be accurate because it was all so positive.....but they were! Lisa was fantastic to work with and knew all the info she needed up front and throughout the process to make it super easy and stress free. Everyone loved the band and the music selection, it definitely helped make our wedding perfect!

One of my greatest desires for our wedding was to have a live band. $timulu$ Package Band met our expectations and more. They go beyond the performing at the event as they emcee the entire night and keep the flow moving with a timeline you discuss with Lisa ahead of time. I didn't have to worry about a thing the entire night as Lisa and the band took care of everything. They kept all our guests engaged and dancing. They were also very flexible with what we wanted to personalize the night. We would recommend them in a heartbeat!

Venue: Lake Waconia Event Center
From the very first contact, Lisa was such a pleasure to work with. It was such a relief during all the planning to know there was at least one vendor I didn't have to worry about. They stayed in communication and were always prompt with a response. They learned new songs that had a lot of sentimental meaning that made our might so very special. They provided us with beautiful live ceremony music which added a beautiful touch to our service. I can not express how much they added to our wedding, their song choices kept the group going all night and were so gracious with the kids that wanted to be on stage. They even went out of their way to play straight through their breaks since we were delayed getting them on the stage. Amazing!! I can not say enough about how happy we are that they played our wedding, everyone is still talking about them. Thank you so much for making our night so special.

Stimulus Package was great from start to finish. The music was good and the dance floor was full most of the night and everyone had a great time. We really wanted our guests to have a good time and stay and enjoy the music and party with us and they did.

We really enjoyed $timulu$ Package at our wedding. The band was very professional and very flexible to our wishes. It was great to have someone take care of everything (even the timing of the evening!) so that we could concentrate on enjoying our special day. Lisa was a rock star and a pleasure to work with. The evening was flawless and we have SP to thank for that.

$timulu$ Package did such an amazing performance at our wedding reception. We couldn't of asked for a more fun yet professional band to have on our special day! They were always very quick at responding to any questions and feedback prior to the wedding and when they arrived they were so on top of things and kept everything running smoothly at the reception. The day is so busy that you forget about certain little details but $timulu$ Package is there to help make sure things are going how you planned. They play such a wide variety of songs, everyone loved their music and I couldn't keep track of how many people asked "Where did you find such a great band?" They get people on the dance floor and they also keep them dancing. We are a couple that loves to have fun and dance and also see our friends and family have a good time and $timulu$ Package made that happen. They even let people rock it out on their tambourine and our favorite, the cowbell!! We can't thank them enough for making our day so memorable!!

$timulu$ Package played at our wedding (about 250 guests) and they were fabulous! They kept the night rocking and the dance floor was full from the very first song to the very end! They were accommodating to what songs we wanted, and even learned a few for us. Lisa is fabulous to work with in preparing and kept me on track for a successful reception! They sound great and play all popular music that people enjoy. We had everyone out dancing - from kids to our friends, parents' friends to a few grandparents! We have gotten tons of comments about how fun they were and how they really added to the reception!! Definitely the best vendor we used!

Stimulus Package kept in contact with us before the wedding. They kept EVERYONE at the wedding dancing. My 80 year old Grandma stayed the whole night because she was having a blast! I had several calls after the wedding asking the name of the band and where they are from. If I did it all over I would hire Stimulus Package again for sure!! Thank you so much for making our day great!! Also... they do requests for special songs that they will then learn before your big day!!

Stimulus Package was truly sensational! They were so easy to work with, down-to-earth, and extremely accommodating. And they were just so much fun! I've never seen so many people out on the dance floor for a wedding as we did at ours with $P as our band. They really interacted with our guests and made the night so special and memorable. I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat.

$TIMULU$ PACKAGE was so wonderful at our wedding reception! I couldn't have asked for a better band, especially since I was against the band to begin with! My husband didn't want a DJ and I was not totally sold on the idea of a band (too loud, not enough variety, etc.). I am so pleased with how great they were, I find myself wishing I had another event that I can hire them for! Lisa totally went with the flow with some last minute changes, and didn't even blink an eye! Thanks for helping to make our reception perfect!
