About

About Us

Weddings, corporate events and other special occasions involve many different dynamics, which is why the Gatsbys are dedicated to providing a dynamic range of services. From classic string melodies to rocking dance numbers, from mellow pop tunes to DJ services, the Gatsbys' versatility allows them to customize the music to your unique needs and provide a one-of-a-kind experience that will have your guests talking long after the event.

The Gatsbys began performing music together in 2001. Their first show ever was a Sweet 16 party in a barn in rural Utah. They rocked the rowdy crowd so hard they were subsequently invited to play at the high school's end of year party.

The Gatsbys soon sought a bigger stage, performing with national touring bands. It was during this time they honed their three-part melodies and signature sound. In the middle of a particularly memorable set, a wedding planner in the audience had an epiphany... the Gatsbys would be the perfect performers for her next wedding. She talked to them after the show and it was arranged.

On the night of the wedding, a storm rolled in and a torrential downpour doused the guests. The Gatsbys kept playing, however, so the party kept going. "The band was even able to adapt to rain and were so kind to keep playing in less than perfect conditions," the planner recalled. "I wish I had a wedding every day, because I would love this band to play for us all the time."

Impressed by the intensity and joy they saw in the rain-soaked crowd that night, the Gatsbys decided to focus their attention on weddings. They have since traveled the nation, performing in locations from San Diego to Cape Cod. Their diverse musicality has garnered praise from throughout the industry and they have been received notice in Snippet & Ink, Southern Bride, Salt Lake/Park City Bride & Groom, and many more. Most of all, the Gatsbys consider it an honor to be part of these special days and love to help make each event memorable and unique.

"Thank you for contributing to our incredible wedding night. Your energy, authenticity, and spirit were priceless. You guys are a gem! Many, many thanks!"

--Rashi, wedding client

"I just wanted to drop you a quick note to express our gratitude to you for making your way out to Cape Cod to be a part of our wedding. You guys were incredible. Perfect music to be sure - but also really great guys we felt lucky to have there with us and spend time with. One of our fondest memories of the weekend was the beautiful rendition of 'Come On Up to the House' you did for us at the end of the night. Couldn't be more appreciative."

--Cyrus, wedding client

"Every once in a while I get to work with the greatest wedding band in the world, the Gatsbys. My wedding in Montauk was one of those special occasions. They blew everyone away so much that the Yacht Club where the wedding was held asked them to play their wine and cheese tasting party they had the day after the wedding. Yeah, they are that good. If you are in the market for a wedding band, and want something that will do nothing less than make your guests thinking your wedding was the wedding of the decade, give the Gatsbys a ring."

--Jonathan Canlas, award-winning photographer

"The Gatsbys do a little bit of everything-if you need Pachelbel's Canon or a traditional wedding march, they've got you covered-but their specialty is covers of popular rock songs. The band members are all at least 6 feet, 4 inches tall, which adds up to more than 19 feet of musical wizardry."

--The Herald Extra

"A HUGE thank you to the Gatsbys-the music was absolutely perfect and we have received a million compliments and inquiries about where we found you guys. It's my goal to refer you for more weddings-and selfishly, because Jay and I want to hear you again and again! Seriously, you guys blew us away and totally exceeded any and all expectations! A million thanks for making the trek out to New York. We hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did! We really enjoyed the hell out of the weekend!"

--Katie, wedding client

"The Gatsbys play acoustic background and dance music plus popular cover songs. The band's most popular song recently has been a cover of M.I.A.'s 'Paper Planes.' The Gatsbys also take requests for special songs the couple would like played at their wedding. The band recently opened for Bishop Allen at Velour. Although they enjoy playing shows around the local music scene, the members of the band all agree that playing weddings is much more rewarding. Besides the satisfaction of making a couple's special day even better, the band also just enjoys getting together and playing music."

--The Daily Universe

"You guys were awesome! So many of our guests complimented the band and your unique sound. We could not have been happier with your performance. It was a perfect choice. Eric and I spent a lot of time picking out music for the wedding and it meant a lot to us that you were willing to sing some of our favorites, as eclectic as they were. We'll definitely recommend you guys to any of our friends!"

--Jennifer, wedding client

"The Gatsbys added that special touch to our reception. People loved it and wanted to hang out forever. We still keep getting wonderful comments about how much they liked the music at our wedding reception, and we think that is the best wedding present ever!"

--Carola, wedding client

"These guys are legit."

--Liz, wedding planner

"I just wanted to give a quick thank you, while the awesomeness of our wedding was still on my mind. All we heard was raves about our band and how fun the music was to dance to!"

--Nicole, wedding client

"The Gatsbys are a great band whose smooth vocals and unique instrumentality will bring spirit, class and fun to any type of event. The guys are personable, fun, flexible and professional. We could not have been more pleased with their performance and their customer relations. They create the greatest atmosphere for any setting. We love the Gatsbys-they rock! Thanks for being a part of our day and making it so special."

--Ashley, wedding client

"The Gatsbys were amazing! They were able to set the mood for the wedding reception and carried it long into the night. The wedding party and all that attended were so happy with the great ambiance and mood that was set by the band. The Gatsbys were able to play so many different instruments that the music was constantly changing and kept the crowd entertained, along with the incredible voices that each member has. If you desire a romantic and fun evening, then I would recommend this band to you. I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed!"

--Kadee, wedding planner
