Virginia Live Wedding Band

Are you looking for A live Wedding Band to play at your wedding?

Big Ray and the Kool Kats has had the distinct advantage of many, many years serving Virginia brides and their families from all over on one of their most important days. They have ONE GOAL in mind when it comes to your wedding – to create memories for you and your loved ones.

The party is not about the live wedding band, though all our musicians are professional, versatile, and know how to get the dance floor grooving, the party is about YOU. With that said, we will work with you, your venue, and your vendors in whatever way is needed to create a most special and spectacular event.

Whether you need a certain song that sparks memories for your family or friends, an emcee to announce the activities, or even a special “guest star” moment on stage, we are ready to coordinate. If you just want the most fun dance party EVER, leave it to us because we know how to read your crowd, young and old alike, and make sure that EVERYONE has a wonderful time.

As a live wedding band, Big Ray and the Kool Kats will work to add the sophistication, the fun, and high energy for you and your guests. Read the perks of hiring a live wedding band.
