After saying your vows and eating an incredible meal, the perfect wedding is usually accomplished with a full night with your friends and family dancing under the stars. Top 40 bands have some catchy beats and latin flare can get the dance floor grooving, but sometimes a couple is begging for songs from another era — that guests across generations will know and love. Whether you're the couple that prefers Frank Sinatra's well-known hits or the couple that wants the vintage rock of '70s Rolling Stones, the below bands provide you with the best of Miami while celebrating your wedding reception in the way you've always dreamed.
Jerry Wayne's Private Party Band
Jerry Wayne's Private Party Band has years of experience and performance knowledge, meaning that they have the background necessary to perfectly deliver the classic wedding of your dreams.

Jeff Grainger & The Hoboken 11
If the swinging styles of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin are your cup of tea, then Jeff Grainger & The Hoboken 11 are the band for you. Fully clad in tuxedos, the group's deep baritone voice and incredibly skilled musicians will make you feel instantly transported through time. While the group is full of youthful energy, their fun vibe is matched only by their professionalism and musical talent — as many of the band-mates played in the Symphony Orchestra together in Cuba prior to coming to Miami. Whether you're interested in Jeff playing a solo show over your cocktail hour or you'd prefer a full 17-piece band complete with a string section, Jeff Grainger & The Hoboken 11 will set the scene perfectly for your classic event.
The Cat Daddies
The Cat Daddies are Miami's premier band for the classic rock-loving couple. After playing together for the past 11 years, these four band-mates are incredible musicians that still love to have a lot of fun on stage. While willing to be accommodating to any couple, The Cat Daddies pride themselves on playing the top songs on the B side of albums — the songs that you love, but you forgot how much you loved them. Being a group of two guitars, one bass, and one drummer, this group can fit perfectly in any size venue, from a small space to 500-person weddings.
