The Cheap Shots knows this is your big day, and we want to take as much stress out of the situation as possible. That's why we are a "set it and forget it" kind of wedding band - from the minute you contact us to play your wedding day, we take a relaxed, simple and professional approach to the hiring process. Working with us is a snap, so you can be sure that the business of the moment doesn't interfere with the emotion and joy it will certainly bring. You'll always have a direct line of communication with our hiring management team to be sure your requests are heard and honored - or, at least, we'll get as close as possible!
Yep, sometimes things get wild and wacky at our weddings! But you're supposed to have fun, so we'll rise to your level of excitement without compromising our professionalism, musicianship or reputation. You have fun, leave the "work" to us! Our professional production team will ensure that you will "see" a real rock concert right there in front of you - the perfect way to celebrate one of the best days of your lives!
The one day when you want it all to go right, we will make sure it does! Clear lines of communication with our management team make sure every detail is cared for and appropriate. You select the song list from our existing set list of more than 150 songs so you know exactly what you're getting from us. We offer you one special song - any song of your choosing - that we incorporate into our show. And our production team can play your personally-selected music from an iPod or phone during dinner or during a special dance. No request is turned down, because this is YOUR day - and we know how to help make it magical!
Best Wedding Band EVER! Our biggest concern with the wedding was the music. We knew right away we would be doing a band over a DJ. The Cheap Shots did not less us down! They learned new songs that we had wanted and already had a great song list to begin with. They sounded great and they were SO.MUCH.FUN. Our guests were blown away! Our dance floor was packed the entire night which is exactly what we wanted. Some even got up on stage!! I had so many people tell me they felt like they were at a concert. Our wedding is one that will not be forgotten, and The Cheap Shots played a big role in making that happen!

The Cheap Shots were and truly amazing. From the start all the way till the end. The communication was perfect and we appreciate that immensely. So often today in the rat race of emails and texts true communication gets lost in the shuffle. However not with you. Between myself and Brittany, to working with the venue and then back again could not have been better. The Cheap Shots are the real deal. From day one until the end of the wedding at midnight, perfection.

We only had two must haves on our wedding day: an open bar and a really fun band. The open bar was easy, but finding the right band for your wedding night comes with a lot of pressure as it really does set the mood and tone for the entire night. Thankfully, Milwaukee has The Cheap Shots. The entire process leading up to the big day was first class. The band is extremely responsive to emails/calls, willing to learn a few songs that were special to us and are extremely professional from start to finish as they understand the importance of such a big occasion. The band was easily the hit of our reception and brought everyone out on the dance floor, including our 92 year old grandparents, aunts/uncles and all of our crazy friends. They are great musicians, have a great song selection and great stage presence. We had so many guests tell us that it was the best wedding band they have ever seen. Thank you, TCS, Milwaukee is lucky to have you.

You guys rocked, literally! So many people these days settle for a DJ for their wedding and that wasn't us. We wanted something different, unique, and fun! Our guests could not stop raving about them! They even said they felt that they should have paid an admission to our wedding! The Cheap Shots are not only super-talented and entertaining, but are also genuine, great people to work with. Great value, great time, AWESOME wedding. As the Bride and Groom we even got to be a part of the show many times. Everyone could not stop telling us how epic our wedding was, and freaking awesome the band was. We can't wait to see them play again. Love you guys!

Josh and The Cheap Shots were incredibly easy, but mostly fun to work with! They never made us feel like any of our questions or song requests were too much to handle and worked with us to create a night we, and likely our guests will never forget. They even handed us the guitar and let us sing a note or two! Our wedding was wonderful, but our dance...perfection!

I had The Cheap Shots perform at my wedding in La Crosse, WI and it was seriously one of the best decisions I made regarding the entire wedding! From the initial point of contact all the way through the end of their performance, Josh and the band were nothing but prompt, professional, accommodating, friendly, and FUN! I was able to customize the set list as well as request some new songs for them to learn specially for the wedding, which was awesome, and really gave the show a personal touch for our big day. I honestly cannot even count the amount of people that came up to me during the reception and in the days after telling me how amazing the band was. At one point during the reception, the Best Man said to me (verbatim): "Usually at weddings, you expect a standard cover band, but this is like a rock show!" I probably didn't mingle with my guests as much as I should have, because I just didn't want to leave the dance floor, lol. I would, without hesitation, absolutely recommend The Cheap Shots to anyone looking to have an energetic, musically-gifted, fun, one-of-a-kind band at their next event. You will definitely not regret it!
