Exit 505 provided such excellent entertainment for our charity fundraiser. From the moment I reached out to them, they promptly responded to me and were available to answer questions regarding booking. They are extremely reliable, being able to contact them and receive prompt responses about the event's details. For having such a large group, they arrived to the event in a very timely manner, and were able to set up and have things ready in a short amount of time. They did a great job of engaging the crowd and playing a whole array of music, from classic rock, to some of their own, to their own renditions of pop hits on the radio. They come with a huge array of unique musical instruments, from guitars, ukuleles, and more.

Most of all, all members of the band were extremely friendly and a great pleasure to collaborate with. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking them for any future events, be it wedding, cocktail party, or private events!!

My fiancé and I were planning our Austin wedding from out of state and knew we wanted a live band. I stumbled upon Exit 505 on the internet and looked into them further. They had a lot of great reviews from others who had hired them, and the videos I had seen of them seemed perfect for the Texas band I was looking for. However, never having seen them live, I wasn't entirely sure how it would go. Well, I just want to say they were perfect!!! One of the very top highlights of my wedding night! Not only did I love them, but I can not count the number of guests who approached me to tell me how impressed they were by the band. The band worked very closely with me leading up to the wedding, learning multiple songs I had requested for all the special moments (which they performed so well) and from there had their own list of songs which kept the wedding guests dancing all night! This band is very talented, affordable, and wonderful to work with. I 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a live band at their wedding or event! Thank you Exit 505!

Exit 505 provided the music for New Hope Counseling Center's annual fundraiser. We were looking for a band that had the ability to play a variety of music during our event. We needed music during dinner as well as music for dancing after dinner. Exit 505 came through for both; they did a tremendous job! Our participants (about 150) loved being able to visit with their friends during the evening while enjoying the music. The dance floor was full most of the evening and everyone had a great time. We are still receiving compliments on our choice for the band and many say they loved not only the variety of music but the variety of instruments the group played. Everyone had a great time and I was thrilled that they all loved the music....especially since I have been an Exit 505 fan for years!. I would recommend them for your wedding, anniversary, birthday celebrations or company events. You won't be disappointed!

Exit 505 played for our granddaughter's wedding. They were perfect. The band was enjoyed by all of our guests. Everyone danced and enjoyed the music. We have used Exit 505 at several events in the past Birthdays and Halloween parties we even had them at a West Kerr Mixer that we we sponsored. They are wonderful people and the music is great for dancing and listening.

They were absolutely excellent. Exactly what we wanted. They were so good for us that we paid them more than what they requested. They may not be everyone's taste, but our guest repeatedly told us how much they enjoyed the band.

Exit 505 did a spectacular job at both our welcome dinner and our wedding ceremony. They are versatile and can play a huge range of music. They are also flexible and willing to learn a number of songs for their clients. As big music fans, my husband and I had a strong vision of the music we wanted to feature during our wedding weekend. I worked closely with Chris of Exit 505 to develop the song list, and everything turned out perfectly.

The ambience they created with their music set a perfect stage for both events. At the welcome party, Exit 505 played classic and new country hits, as well as several other genres. Everybody was dancing by the end of the night, and they really kept the party going. We did not want the show to end! During the wedding ceremony, Exit 505 played a number of medleys they composed from our favorite hymns and gospel and folk songs. Their music was creative and classic and instantly recognizable. Our ceremony took place in the hill country on the Guadalupe river, and their music set a magical and spiritual tone for the event.

We definitely recommend Exit 505 for anyone looking for a band with great musicians and versatile skills. They are wonderful to work with and won't disappoint!

Great Valentine's Entertainment
By Sharon R.

Exit 505 played for New Hope Counseling's annual fundraiser. With approximately 150 people attending, the dance floor was hopping most of the night. Our older crowd loved the variety of the music including a waltz which drew everyone to the dance floor. I heard from a number of attendees that they appreciated the band playing at a volume where they could enjoy the music and still have conversations at their tables. I would definitely recommend Exit 505 for any event that you have. The diversity of instruments, variety of voices and overall play sets were terrific!!! We are hoping they will play for us again! Try them out, you will love them!!!!

To the rescue...GREAT BAND!!!!
By Amber E.

With a week and a half until the big wedding, the band we hired backed out with a scheduling conflict and Exit 505 was ready to help! They played during the "cocktail" time and also learned a song, that the bride and groom requested, to be played as the bride and groom left the chapel. They arrived early, set-up without assistance, played wonderful music and then broke down. A wonderful band for a wonderful event.

Good music, good people, great kazoos
By Roberto F.

Exit 505 played our recent golf charity event. First, they were incredibly generous in making themselves available b/c it was the Saturday of Easter. Next, the music was fantastic. Very creative takes on well-liked tunes. The three female "lead" singers have lovely voices and sing in wonderful harmony. And then the kazoos. Oh the kazoos. When you can creatively and successfully bring kazoos into your music then you are doing something right.

We will be holding our event again next year. We will be asking Exit 505 to play at our event again.

EXIT 505 was AWESOME!

Great musicians full of passion and enthusiasm!
By Deanna E.

Exit 505 is an amazing group of musicians full of passion and enthusiasm about the music they play which translates into a great show/dance for all that attend! They are a very talented group with many of them playing multiple instruments as well as having beautiful harmonizing voices! They played in our venue for a dance open to the public. The dance was well attended and the dance floor stayed full. I would definitely recommend them. Chris and Bill Booker were my contacts, they are two of the kindest people you will meet. They were very easy to work with and eager to please. If you need a band with a wide variety in their play list, This is the band to choose. Thank you Exit 505, we will call you again!

10/17/2014 Event
By Robert K.

On Friday evening of October 17th, the band Exit 505 played music for a gathering of 160 people at the Tuscany Ranch Music & Cooking venue, of which I serve as director. The band set up early, played late, and displayed a positive, engaging attitude throughout the evening. They exhibited a variety of music which was well-received by our guests. Everyone seemed to have a great time enjoying the food and music, dancing and singing with friends as the evening progressed.

In short, all of the comments about the band that I heard from folks were most favorable, and I sincerely recommend Exit 505 for any entertainment gathering featuring live music. This band is a pleasure to know both personally and professionally.

Genuine Talent!
By Madison O.

I had the pleasure meeting Chris Booker and her wonderful bandmates at an event we threw, Texas Roots Music Festival. What a jovial and talented group! They bring their personality and dynamic twist on an incredible variety of music. They are extremely adaptable and down to earth, making them a splendid choice to bring character and originality to any event. Truly a wonderful experience.
