I am a voice actor who has the technical ability to produce high quality audio performance files. Therefore, the flair the customer is looking for - be it serious, comedic or simply a natural voiced approach can be captured in a recording that is exactly what you are looking for - either voice only or with sound, music, ambience added - depending on what you are looking for.
"Dave and Jimmy helped everyone have a blast at our wedding! We knew they were an excellent band from listening to them at the wineries but we were so impressed with their professionalism, flexibility and attention to detail when it came to working with them for our wedding reception. We ended up needing Dave to help keep our reception running on schedule from the cocktail hour to the dinner to the dancing and he really stepped up to the plate for us as the MC. We can not say enough wonderful things about the DIamond Dave Duo! Our guests had a blast, we had a blast and we could not have been happier to have them at our reception. "(Various)(

"These guys were fantastic. They were very professional throughout the whole process and worked with us to have a night to remember. The whole party danced and sang the night away as these guys rocked the house. Everyone of our guest came away talking about how great these guys were and how they made the night. We wished the party would have lasted even longer just so we could here them do a few more songs. Forget a DJ because these guys make the wedding reception so much more rockin!!!"

I am a happy customer of Diamond Dave Trio. The band played great and everyone at our formal dinner dance loved them. They were very energetic and interactive with the crowd. Everyone was up on their feet almost the entire time dancing and singing. The only complaint I have is that the event was too short and Diamond Dave Trio could not go on playing. We would of stayed at the banquet all night listening to this band rock out. If anyone is thinking of getting a live band for any occasion it would be insane not to look at Diamond Dave Trio. They are the best cover band I have ever heard. Thanks again guys and I looked forward to call them again for any future events.

We were all so pleased with the job you and the band did. I really think it put the whole reception over the top. I knew having live music would do that. We can’t stop talking about it. As soon as the band launched into the Frank Sinatra song for the Bride & Groom dance I started smiling from ear to ear. Then you went straight into the Scorpians love ballad that you learned for Lisa & Jeff ‘The Best is Yet to Come”. You guys nailed it. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. All night long you guys played one great song after another. You also did such a fantastic job running the various reception activities. We keep hearing from people that were there and they tell us it was the best wedding reception they have been to. I know your live music was a big part of that. Heck, the photographer even stuck around to party and do the moon dance. It was also very special to me and my family when you did the longest marriage elimination dance and my parents where the last couple on the dance floor.
Being a musician myself, I made a vow when Lisa born that would never hire a DJ for her wedding. It had to be live music. Keep sending me notices of where you are playing. We will come and see you some time.

Thank you so much for performing at our wedding. You guys were great from start to finish with all of our requests and last minute changes, you guys just went with the flow for us. We received so many compliments on you guys. Thank you for allowing our flower girl to do her special presentation and for my Matron of Honor to sing as well. That meant so much to us. You did a fantastic job on our wedding song. We definitely think you should add it to your playlist because you sounded terrific! All of our guests enjoyed you guys, you were all so nice while we were able to talk with you in between sets, and we just could not have asked for anything more. You really made our wedding a fantastic event, and one that we know our guests will continue to talk about for a long time. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who is in need of a band for any event they have coming up. Not only were your super professional but extremely talented musicians. Before we found you, every other band we listened ato sounded the same and that was not what we were looking for. You guys got our guests out on the dance floor. We have never seen a band or a dj able to get everyone from the flower girls to our guests in their 80's out there dancing, but you guys accomplished that. We cannot say enough good things about you guys, your professionalism, and your talent. Thank you again for making our wedding so special to us.
Sorry, that was long, but we could go on and on about how great we thought you guys were. Every guest we talked to about you guys talked about how great you were. We have several friends who are musicians themselves and they thought you did an outstanding job. You definitely did not sound like the corny wedding bands that are out there. Thank you again so much. We loved every minute of it. Our day was so wonderful that we are both sad it is over now! :)
Had a great time dancing to this band. I made a request for a song at the reception that they hadn't been given prior notice of and they made it work. They sounded great at our reception. The only issue was a few announcement glitches but those wouldn't deter me from higher them again. I would just make sure I communicated better to eliminate those glitches. Thanks so much Diamond Dave Trio, everyone at the wedding had a wonderful time.

They worked with us to make sure the evening was everything we had hoped it would be...also, they rocked! We couldn't stop dancing. We will definitely book The Diamond Dave Trio again.
Where else can you hear great renditions of all the songs we love to sing along with in one night?
Also, the three guys, Jimmy, Dennis and Dave are very professional and friendly. They really made the party.

Diamond Dave Trio was perfect for our wedding. They have a lot of talent, they know what they're doing, and I would definitely hire them again for another event. They even learned a new song to play for our first dance! It was great!

The Diamond Dave Trio did an amazing job at our wedding! Everyone was dancing all night! We couldn't have asked for a better band! –Kristen, Saint Louis, MO, July 24th, 2011
I was very pleased with The Diamond Dave Trio's performance at my wedding. I had many unexpected hurdles occur including a last minute relocation of the reception and the band rolled with all the changes and performed with out a hitch. We couldn't get my guests off the dance floor and I received many compliments about the band. If you're looking for a great band for your wedding that isn't a large scale production, Diamond Dave Trio is a solid choice. Their song list covers all the genres and they learned new songs I requested. i couldn't have asked for better reception entertainment. It sure beats having a DJ and my guests told me that many times over. –

The Diamond Dave Trio was AWESOME at our wedding reception! Everyone loved how versatile you were and people were dancing all night long. You kept the schedule moving and were able to quickly solve our technology issue by providing a mic for our slide show. Thank you so much for topping off our perfect day with the perfect party music!
-Mrs. C.S, St. Charles, MO, July 3rd, 2011
I would highly recommend the Diamond Dave Trio. We hired them for our daughter's wedding reception and they MADE the party! They were so accomodating on everything and have an awesome play list. They also are very willing to learn any song you may want them to play if they don't already know it. Everyone was sorry when they had to stop playing and leave!
-Scott, Godfrey, IL, August, 15th, 2010
We could not have asked for a better group of guys to entertain our guests, who all gave rave reviews and comments on the variety and professionalism. And not only are they top notch musicians, we gained some friends as well! GREAT time guys!
