Thank you so much for “putting the icing on the cake” with your beautiful music, professionalism and warmth for our wedding. I had so many people express their appreciation and joy that evening. You really gave us a Joyride. Vicky

David and the crew from Joyride played at our wedding reception this past weekend. They were fantastic! They played a great mix of music. All our guests were asking “who is this band” as they were coming up to dance. A great band and they made our event very memorable and wonderful. Robin & Kim M.

Outstanding band!! Highly recommend if you’re looking for a good time at your wedding. Joyride traveled to Ketchum to play at our camp wedding and they were everything we could have hoped for and more. We wanted a high energy band to keep everyone on the dance floor and they definitely delivered. Very professional musicians that were easy to work with. They learned a song for our first dance. They got out on the dance floor with the sax and the microphone and we even had guests up on the bongo playing with them. Joyride was a highlight of our wedding! Five stars!

To Joyride, thank you so much for the most spectacular presentation of leading our special day! We had at least 10 couples tell us how great you were! David we especially appreciated your sax solo! We have never seen a band keep the dance floor packed at a wedding from beginning to end like you did! Again, thank you,  Vicky and Jade Preston 

You guys Rock! Seriously, you far exceeded my expectations and I know everyone was probably sore the next morning from dancing so hard. I was totally impressed with how you were able to learn new songs upon our request and how each song had it's own special character. Having access to the audio to play our own first dances and provide music for cocktails and dinner made things seamless, and going out of your way to learn and play "Blackbird" as Liz walked down the aisle, was priceless.

                                                                                                                               We had JoyRide play our wedding August 2014 and they were phenomenal! Extremely entertaining, engaging, and most of all, they sounded phenomenal. Everyone was smiling and dancing all night long! Their song selection and stage presence and ease to work with, made them the perfect wedding band. Anyone looking for a band to hire for an event, would be hard pressed to find a better band than JoyRide.  Ben and Cassie


Well, where to start. We invited a group of family and friends to join us for a barn dance at our home on 4th of July weekend. We ask JoyRide to play for us. They were amazing. They are fantastic musicians and wonderful entertainers. When David Westmoreland stepped down from the stage and played that saxophone from the dance floor, there wasn’t a single person who wasn’t jumping, clapping, singing or dancing. I thought our little barn would just about come apart. This group is friendly and professional.  They engaged a very diverse group of people of all ages and from all walks of life, and everyone had a wonderful time. We would invite this group back anytime and we look forward to seeing them again. We would give JoyRide a five star rating. Ed and Janet Neel Buhl, Idaho

JoyRide KILLED IT at our wedding last weekend!! They got everyone out on the dance floor immediately and kept the party going for hours with their talent and positive energy. Their set list was spot on and they even welcomed audience participation! David was also a pleasure to coordinate with beforehand. Thanks guys for making a beautiful memory for all of us at Harriman last Saturday. -Gina and Jon

An Email from a client: Hello David, I meant to get a message right off to you and the band, but life got crazy right after the dance! I want to relay to you and Joyride the tremendous amount of feedback I received from having you at our February dance – nothing but STELLAR! Not only did everyone have a wonderful time dancing and enjoying your music, they all want you back!! I will say I have never seen one of our bands receive a standing ovation, nor has that many members stayed that late to listen to the music. You are each talented musicians, performers, and best of all – seem to enjoy your audience. My husband commented it was “the best dance we have been do” – and I agreed. I hope you as musicians and performers enjoyed the night as well. I felt our members responded to you positively and hope you felt the appreciation! We have yet to set our dates for next year, but I would like to get an October date to you and am hoping Joyride will want to join us again. I sincerely appreciate you working with our  Dance Club. If the word gets out, perhaps our membership will be larger for next year! J Thank you again – please extend this to each member of the band. Not to be sexist (smile) – but we have never had a female vocalist, which was a hit, too! Best regards, Elissa

Client Feedback: Great experience!  The band was very fun and flexible to requests and participating in singing some unique "party songs" that we had for a few games.  Definitely will invite them back.

Client Comments: Outstanding! Exceeded our expectations!!!As a Certified Meeting Professional I often hire musicians for client events. Most of the time I rely on referrals from the event venues. However, for a client event in Sun Valley last week I reached out to the Internet and found Joyride. Of course, I was apprehensive and just hoped they would show up, be professional, and most of all be a good band. In the end, they not only were on time and extremely professional, they were one of the best bands I have ever heard! Their range of music was phenomenal, and I received many compliments on their diversity and ability to play various requests. I would definitely recommend Joyride and hope to use them again soon.
