“Rod Tuffcurls does not disappoint! We hired the guys for our wedding and I can honestly say that they MADE the party. Four weeks later and we're still getting compliments from our guests on their performance. For anyone who has seen them live, they are the same lively, entertaining crew in just a smaller (dare i say more intimate) setting. The dance floor was packed the entire time so bring your dancin shoes! Our reception felt like it was straight out of a movie! From a professional standpoint, these guys are first class and they're great at their jobs. They can MC your entire event, get people moving, and manage the music before their sets and during breaks. They handle every AV aspect of the day. There is honestly nothing you need to worry about except having a great time! Cheers!”J.J. M

“Michael S - Rod Tuffcurls & The Bench Press made our wedding a night to remember forever. Tom and his group did everything we asked and brought the thunder, rocking out to two or three curtain calls that lasted 30-40 minutes past when they were supposed to be done. Next to saying "I Do" I can honestly say that the one piece of ourwedding that we will never forget is the amazing performance of the Bench Press!”Michael S
