DC Synergy Showcase Highlights
  1. DC Synergy killed it

    We absolutely LOVED DC Synergy who made our wedding night truly unforgettable. They had an amazing set and were an extraordinary group of artists who got literally the entire party on the dance floor (even my 94-year-old grandmother was dancing to their music until 10 pm). We are so grateful to have hosted DC Synergy and cannot recommend these artists enough for your event! Thank you so much DC Synergy for marking our evening so special- we received countless compliments about how energizing the band was, truly an incredible experience!

  2. Best band Ever!!

    The best decision we made at our wedding was hiring DC Synergy. We had a number of professional musicians/music connoisseurs among our guest list and all were extremely impressed with the band. (And those of us who are not either of those loved them too!!) Jarreau was very professional and unbelievably talented— truly an exceptional vocalist! Jarreau was a pleasure to work with, took custom requests, learned a very vocally challenging song for our first dance and did a fantastic job “MC”-ing the reception. He kept all of the speeches on track and did a great job keeping the party going and getting everyone on the dance floor. The other vocalists and instrumentalists were also extremely talented. Erik the guitarist is classically trained and played acoustic guitar beautifully during our cocktail hour. The band was also happy to accompany an outside performer who was a guest at the wedding. DC Synergy made my wedding reception so much fun.

    We listened to a number of other bands in the area that were great but DC Synergy was by far the most talented and yet amazingly was still within our budget! 100% recommend!!!!

  3. Best wedding I've ever had 🙂

    Jarreau and DC Synergy absolutely brought it at our wedding. Jarreau was on it every step of the way, calling and emailing to get the set lists right, work with us on how the processional would flow, and even learned a song for our first dance. We had seen them at another wedding last year and we’re so amazed that we lined them up as soon as we had a venue locked in.

    Everyone commented on how energetic and fun they were. We added the horns and they were worth every penny.

  4. DC Synergy is THE BEST!!!

    One of our biggest decisions was choosing an excellent band to celebrate. My husband and I are big dancers and this was truly one of our biggest decisions. Everyone at Entertainment Exchange was wonderful to work with and we simply can’t say how much we loved DC Synergy!! We hired the entire 10-piece band and they were INCREDIBLE! Jarreau is SO talented and such a natural on stage. He handled all of the wedding details and flow of the day with ease, and don’t even get me started on his voice! What. A. Talent. Everyone was on the dance floor the entire night– which was exactly how we dreamed the day to be! We received rave reviews from countless guests about the band and it truly shows up when you see the joy on our faces in our wedding pictures. If you want a stellar band to celebrate your big day I can confidently day that DC Synergy is your choice!

  5. DC Synergy was phenomenal! We had a wonderful evening. Our guests were constantly telling us how great the bad was!

  6. Best band ever and perfect wedding night!

    We were blown away by the talent that DC Synergy brought to our wedding night. They knew exactly how to make sure everyone had a good time. They were extremely professional and buttoned-up throughout the process and when preparing for our special night. They read the room perfectly. Couldn’t have asked for more. We HIGHLY recommend DC Synergy!!!

  7. Absolutely Unbelievable Performance!!!

    DC Synergy,

    THANK YOU for an absolutely unbelievable performance!!!

    Our guests were blown away by the band and everyone wanted to dance. Seriously, they won’t stop talking about the energy that DC Synergy brought to the room.

    I have posted a review on Wedding Wire: perfect score, plus a few paragraphs that I hope will convince plenty of people to book you!

    Any time y’all had your set going, our dance floor was packed. And we really loved how even though our guests were mostly in their 30s or their 60s, you crafted a setlist that found a way to connect with a blend of people, to draw different couples out to dance.

    Your talent, your charisma, and your kindness are a gift. Heather and I are thankful that you could share that with us and with our guests.

    Thank you for making our wedding night so much fun!

  8. Amazing Band!

    Amazing Band

    I legitimately do not know where to start. Jarreau and his crew far exceeded our expectations. We hired DC Synergy for our wedding and it was the best decision we have ever made! From the minute they started playing not one of our guests ever sat back down! They truly had the place rockin’ all night long. From song selection and music taste, Jarreau made the whole process seamless and easy. The band played a little something for everyone which made it even that much better. The band was also top notch professionals with state of the art sound equipment and instruments! Our guests have still not stopped asking where on earth we found this band! We strongly recommend you hire this band for your next event!

  9. DC Synergy kept the party going!


    Jarreau and the entire DC Synergy band were absolutely fantastic. We were thrilled with the flow and energy of the evening, as were all of our guests. They truly put on a spectacular show and dozens of guests asked where we found them. They were confident, energetic, great with little last minute changes, communicated well, clearly knew the timeline and put together an awesome playlist from our pre-approved song list – they even learned a few songs for us. Also, Jarreau’s voice is AMAZING!!! We enthusiastically recommend DC Synergy to anyone. They helped keep the party going all night. The reception would not have been nearly the success it was without Jarreau and DC Synergy.

  11. Amazing!

    You and the entire DC Synergy band were stellar last night. I was thrilled with the flow and energy of the evening, as was the client and all of the guests. You truly put on a spectacular show and are hands down one of the best MC’s I have ever worked with on an event. You were confident, energetic, great with little last minute changes (I have never seen group photos managed so well!!), communicated well, clearly knew the timeline, and stayed calm under pressure with what I know was a tight load-in and setup. All of that AND your voice is AMAZING!!! I have and will continue to confidently recommend DC Synergy to clients and friends. You made the event. It would not have been nearly the success it was without you and the band.

    Hats off to you and, thank you, thank you.

    DC Synergy is amazing! We can’t imagine having had a better band for our wedding. The band had the dance floor packed the entire time, and countless guests have told us how much they loved this band (and are planning to tell their friends about this band!). They also did a great job performing our first dance and parent dances, as well as the wedding party introductions. Members of the band also performed during our cocktail hour, which was a huge hit! We are recommending DC Synergy to all of our friends getting married in this area. Hire this band!

    Wonderful experience! They traveled to Richmond October 21, 2107 for our wedding at the VMFA and did a fantastic job! I wish the party could have lasted longer. They kept us on the dance floor pretty much the entire time! Highly recommend this band! We had one male and two female singers and added two horns to their base band – worth every penny!

  18. Wedding Planner Review

    Thanks to DC Synergy for making Saturday so special for Taylor and Ian. It was a stunning evening and I can’t wait to see the photos and video. The family and guests were raving all evening. Look forward to working with you again very soon.

  19. Weddingwire Review

    DC Synergy played at our wedding and they kept the dance floor full the entire party! All night, guests told us how much they liked the band. We needed the band to play popular music from today and traditional Jewish music for our hora and Mizinke and they did both beautifully. They also learned three new songs for us and all three were great. The best part was how affordable DC Synergy was to book. We looked at other bands that were twice their cost. We really felt like we got our money’s worth. I would definitely recommend DC Synergy for any important event!

  20. Karen - Wedding

    DC Synergy was amazing! We were searching bands in Washington DC and this one stood out in the videos, and on our wedding day they did not disappoint! They were in touch with us well before our event date to talk to us about our wedding celebration timeline and what music we wanted to hear. When I told them that I wanted my brothers to play the first dance song, they were not only accommodating but also really supportive. Ariel, the bandleader, took the time to do a conference call with them so that everyone felt comfortable. Also I don’t know if they always do this, or if they were just reading the crowd, but they ended our party with “Don’t Stop Believing” and we were all dancing and singing and smiling. Great way to end on a super high note. There has to be a kind of magic happening on your wedding day, and the band is the biggest part of that magic. DC Synergy was amazing- and if you are thinking about whether or not to go with horns- GO WITH HORNS!

  21. Wedding Reception

    Hi Pat. We really enjoyed DC Synergy. Please tell LaKeyia and Cory that we are getting lots of kudos for the great music. I think Cory’s piano playing was a great spontaneous component of the entertainment. You all have great voices and are accomplished musicians. Thanks so much. We’ll be sure to tell our friends our friends about DC Synergy.

  22. Wedding Reception

    DC Synergy brought it ALL to our wedding this October. As in: pitch-perfect vocals from Cory and Pat and Lekeyia (her pipes don’t lie!); Tight and funky drums and keys; and adding the 2 amazing craftsmen on horns was the wisest decision of all (and what a deal!). The energy was throttling all night with our focus on the latest jams. Equally importantly, they nailed the ballads and even learned Ain’t No Mountain High Enough on a week’s notice and sung it with enough power and precision to make DC’s native son Marvin Gaye proud. The compliments were flying in the whole night from party people from a wide range of ages. The people were saying, “By far, one of the best wedding bands we’ve seen.
