"The Loyales were the best wedding band ever because they weren’t a wedding band. They were just a really great band.”
Joel Stein, Time Magazine
Clients rave about The Loyales' sound, their attention to detail, and the breadth of the band’s repertoire. The band can go in nearly any musical direction, and they customize their setlist around your musical tastes.
“This band is absolutely electric.”
Marianne D. (wedding client)
"...like a living, breathing jukebox, full of expertly curated 45s."
For weddings and parties, Milton (lead singer and bandleader) begins his exquisite curation of the party setlist from the very first phone call with each client.
The Loyales setlist is steeped in so many different styles, the band can go in almost any direction needed to keep the party rolling, including 50s-90s classics, R&B, funk, classic rock, reggae, country, and more. You can have as little or as much of each style at your wedding.
"Somehow they exceeded our expectations!"
The Loyales band is actually the party cover band version of the band that normally backs up the soulful singer-songwriter, Milton. Milton runs the band and sings.
"No one could resist the urge to get up and dance."
"They truly made the night."
