"The Craig Vaughn Experience surpassed our expectations! We recently hosted an outdoor barn party for about 250 people and by the end just about everybody was dancing, from the young 20-somethings to the 70 and 80 year olds! Everyone commented on the great song choices and how fantastic the band sounded. They played something for everyone and many people were singing along the whole time. It was fun to watch them play together and feed off of each other's energy. They are definitely a talented group of musicians.  Craig was very easy to work with, took requests, and was very considerate of our needs. He even sent us a "preview" video in the months before our event! I could see hiring just Craig for a smaller event or using the entire band for any number of occasions, not just weddings. We'd have them come play at every family gathering if we could! We would highly recommend Craig and his band to anyone looking for true talent and musicianship, especially if you want to get your group dancing!"

"Thank you to 'The Craig Vaughn Experience' for helping me complete a dream evening for my lady friends.  I was extremely pleased with the “main event”.   The band’s  entertainment after dinner that night was awesome!   Even though we had bad weather and weren’t able to do it outside, your last minute adjustment to inside couldn’t have been more perfect!    The music selection was awesome and just what we wanted.  I appreciate you playing some of our favorites over again.   The interaction you guys had with us & my friends,  your accompaniment for my god-daughter and myself to share a song together created memories we will not forget.   Simply put you guys completed the evening and made it perfect.   It is a real testament  when you have 20+ ladies up on their feet dancing and singing the night away!!    Super fun! And talented ..all of you!    By nights end we had adopted you all as family.   Thank you and no doubt we will look forward to singing, playing and dancing with you guys again in the future!"

"Wow!  The Craig Vaughn Experience  was the perfect band for our event.  I guess it is important to note that they are easy to work with and talented – but that wasn’t really the most impressive part.  Somehow they delivered a playlist -- and really creative arrangements for some really unexpected songs (i.e. what if Doc Watson wrote Uptown Funk?) that thoroughly entertained 3 generations.  I’m still not even sure how they did it.  As someone from the “high” generation, I was glad they could also deliver great roots and country covers.  It was like they had known us all for a long time.  Every request was accommodated beautifully! Our party had about 100 people, but both my wife and I are sure they’d be great for much bigger AND much smaller events.  Can’t wait for the next one."

"The Craig Vaughn Experience knows how to throw a party, that’s for sure! He and his wife helped make a 60th surprise birthday party for my mom and our family/friends especially memorable. They helped provide acoustic music during a more intimate wine tasting (the perfect set list and volume!) and then transitioned into everyone’s favorites after dinner. They were receptive to input from the guests which made the event feel very personal…they even let my 3 year old nephew take over the mic to sing happy birthday to his Gigi (grandma)! When our guests were leaving, everyone kept asking “where did you find the band?” – that’s when you know you hit the mark! We will 100% be working with Craig again for our future events….he is a trusted business owner and does everything in his power to put the customer first. Thank you for helping us make our party and family gathering so memorable!"

"Whoa! What a great event. And a large part of its success is due to Craig's fantastic performance. Everyone was singing his praises -- even my most musically discerning guests.
I booked Craig on a whim. I'd neither seen nor heard him before. I found him online and his professionalism so impressed me that I had to give him a shot. He made my Saturday afternoon party for about 100 friends an absolute blast.
Thanks, Craig. I'll let you know as soon as I confirm the date for next year's party!"
