What makes The Mockingbirds different from other wedding/event bands?

When you book The Mockingbirds, you get a true band. Many wedding bands are comprised of hired-gun musicians who may be meeting each other for the first time at your wedding. The Mockingbirds keep a close knit roster of musicians who know and play with each other all time. That means a more polished experience than a group of strangers could ever provide!

We generally arrive 2 hours prior to the event.
