“The wedding band for people who hate wedding bands”
We at Three Sheets to the Wind offer a refreshing alternative to staid and stuffy wedding bands with our preppy, tongue-in-cheek presentation--truly a band for the discerning wedding client who “gets it.”
Amazing versions of the greatest hits of the ‘70s and ‘80s keep the dance ﬂoor packed while the stylishly attired musicians bring a certain je ne sais quoi to your wedding, and to yacht clubs everywhere.
Because we too have seen parties ruined by bands taking long breaks between short sets, we believe in playing two long sets and timing our only break to coincide with cake cutting and other wedding traditions.
Although we are America’s #1 Tribute to Yacht Rock, we will happily learn a ﬁrst dance or other song for your wedding--no matter the genre--at no additional cost.
Our band leader, Topper Dandy, is always available to our clients by phone or email. He’ll be happy to work with you to help create and execute a plan for what we like to call “The Greatest Night of Your Life.”™

Better Parties Through Technology
Zero volume complaints:
All band members use in-ear monitors--an investment which eliminates 6 to 8 on-stage speakers. Guitar, bass, and keyboards are all run direct into the audio console, eliminating even more stage volume. The result is crisp, well-controlled audio on a clean stage.
No sound board in the middle of the room:
Our yachting-attired sound engineer mixes the show remotely from an iPad. We keep the sound board hidden by the stage, and out of the way of your guests.
One band, one bus:
Band, crew, and gear travel in the 24’ long shuttle bus, known to the world as “The Steely Van.”
Decreased decor budget:
Unlike bands who use incandescent fixtures, our all-new-for-2018, nautically themed, LED lighting setup operated by the band's Lighting Designer conserves energy, and provides an exciting, yet tasteful compliment to the performance.
