VIPs Entertainment Wedding Bands Featured in Modern Luxury Weddings

We are so honored to once again receive a great mention from an esteemed wedding publication this summer, Modern Luxury Weddings.

VIPs Entertainment had the honor to provide acoustic guitar, acoustic bass, Ukelelé and vocals for the wedding ceremony , a Jazz quartet with guitar, bass, Jazz drums and vocals for the cocktail reception and the Uptown Live Variety Dance band for the indoor reception and dancing!

Here is a link to the article


Along with our strong representation as the leader in Southern California Wedding Bands and becoming known as the go-to wedding music company in Monterey, Carmel and the Bay Area, VIPs Entertainment has continued to rapidly grow our brand in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara and throughout the Central Coast of California. So it was a perfect fit when Aly Henderson(John), owner of Sundrop Vintage reached out to us and asked that we provide the music for her upcoming wedding in Cayucos, CA.

There are so many details, logistics, questions and often challenges that come up when working off site from a traditional venue. Things to consider are power, places for vendors to prepare and change, storage, travel, accommodations and overall preparation for the event. That is why it is so important to work with vendors you trust can handle the task and have done this in the past. Because we send so many bands, musicians and production crews throughout Country and internationally for destination weddings, we were prepared for Cayucos, the travel, the heat and the blank canvas venue. Ultimately, the final product left our client happy and made us extremely proud to be trusted and included in such a special celebration!

Uptown Live Band plays wedding for Philadelphia Eagles star Zach Ertz and soccer star Julie Johnston

VIPs Entertainment was so honored to provide music for every aspect of this gorgeous wedding. It began with the seaside ceremony music and then flowed seamlessly to hit country music for cocktail hour out on the lawn. We then moved everyone into a beautiful customized tent for dinner and dancing with Uptown Live Band and then the after party with a DJ in one of the amazing Bacara Ritz-Carlton Ballrooms!

Thank you to Kelsey Events, Rayce PR and all the amazing vendors! photos by Britt Rene


Here is bit of the article published on Martha Stewart Weddings!

While planning her wedding to the Philadelphia Eagles tight end, Julie (who plays for the United States Soccer Federation and National Women’s Soccer League) was keen on throwing a celebration to remember. With the help of the couple’s team of experts (including planner Kelsey Events), her vision was achieved. On the beautiful spring day of March 26, 2017, Julie and Zach wed in Santa Barbara, California, at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara. The two tied the knot in front of a number of attendees, including members of their athletic teams, and, of course, their other friends and family members. Following the seaside ceremony (the venue sits on the Pacific Ocean), everyone headed to the reception tent, where they were met with a mix of classic and personalized details. “It was the perfect spot for our families and Zach always wanted a beach wedding,” the bride says. “And Bacara is beautiful!”


Before their nuptials, Julie and Zach hosted a laid-back welcome party on the beach. Post-wedding, they celebrated into the night with an after-party featuring a DJ, pizza, and some of the couple’s favorite candies. Not long after their big day was complete, the couple jetted off to Hawaii for their honeymoon. The bride also turned in her “Johnston” soccer uniforms for ones displaying her new last name, “Ertz.”
