“OMG just amazing. We hired Locked-N-Loaded for our wedding and they were fabulous. I have so many people telling me how amazing the band was, they made our wedding extra perfect and I cannot imagine not booking them”

Stephanie S. - Valley Springs, CA

“Locked-N-Loaded is my favorite country band in the Bay Area! I love going to the Rodeo in Houston Texas every year, especially for the live music. I NEVER thought I would hear that caliber of live music here in Northern California – but these guys are it! They are super relaxed and easy to work with. I have reffered them to everyone I know and can’t wait to hire them again”

Telesha D. - Belverdere, CA

“Great band. I would hire them again, no question. I had requested a specific song and they learned it for the event! Great reviews from our guests. There were special requests for songs and they accommodated. Thank you Locked-N-Loaded for helping make our event a success!”

Detailed Reviews

“Locked-N-Loaded were fantastic great music mix, great vocals, covers done like the original artist. Very professional, WE WILL DEFINITELY HAVE THEM BACK!”
John and Carla S., Dixon, CA

“Mark, Brandon and the rest of the guys were more than friendly and accommodating. They were professional through and through. They helped make sure everyone from the oldest to the youngest had a great time. They are very talented and they sound fantastic. I would definitely hire them again.”
Jason S., Taylorsville, CA

“Being from Texas, we really wanted a country band at our wedding, but finding a quality group in California was really challenging. My wife and I were really happy we found Locked-N-Loaded. They were very responsive and accommodating as we were planning, even down to our song selections. They’re great musicians, matching the style and sound of a wide range of country artists. Our friends and family, from teenagers up to our grandparents, were on the dance floor for two hours straight and told us after how they enjoy the band. Highly recommend them.”

Chris F., Lake Tahoe, CA

“Locked-N-Loaded was flawless. The music was wonderful and they kept everyone engaged and on the floor dancing. The wedding guests had such good time, no one wanted to leave!”
Tara Y., Santa Rosa, CA

“Locked-N-Loaded was the best choice I could have possibly made for our wedding music. From the beginning of the process to the end, they worked closely with me and the venue to be sure the day went smoothly. They even accommodated two special song requests for the day. The guys provided both my ceremony and reception music. My guests could not stop talking about what great musicians they were and many said it was like, “being at a concert!” And yet, it never felt like the event was about anything other than my husband an I. I would highly recommend them to anyone having a wedding or other big event. Thanks Locked-N-Loaded!”
Lauren B., Carmel, CA

“Locked-n-Loaded was awesome! Our little town had nothing but great things to say about them. They really know how to get a crowd going. I highly recommend them for any occasion! Can’t wait for them to come back to the city of Cloverdale and perform again!”
Mahkayla R., Cloverdale Fire Dept., CA

“We hired Locked-n-Loaded to perform at our wedding reception, and it was the highlight of the weekend. We had a multi-day outdoor wedding with multiple events planned in the same area. They showed up earlier than promised and managed to load in and perform sound check without disturbing any of our guests or events. The guys were friendly and gracious and involved the guests in their performance. We have had multiple guests tell us they were one of the best bands they had ever seen. Can not recommend them highly enough. They helped us throw a wonderful party that we will always remember. These guys are true professionals. 6/5 stars”
Stephen M., Coloma, CA

“Locked-N-Loaded was amazing! They were available when I needed them leading up to the event, they were kind and understanding to my preferences, and they were extremely professional. Not to mention, they sounded amazing and we received a million compliments on how awesome the band was! If you need a good country band for a party, Locked-N-Loaded is the band to hire! If we ever have another big party, they will be first on the list!”
Natalie B., Saint Helena, CA

“Locked-N-Loaded arrived at our venue on time. They set up without a fuss. They were professional at all times during the evening. They worked very well with our MC, line dancing instructor and an assortment of raffle and auction announcements. They were sweet and cuddly when they needed to be and a little raunchy and rockin’ when the time was right. The sound mix on every song was great, due in part to their full-time sound guy wirelessly mixing the band from the audience perspective. We had 340 people at our fundraiser and I heard nothing but praise from everyone. Locked-N-Loaded was a major factor in the success of our fundraiser. A+++”
Thomas O., Roseville, CA

“Locked-N-Loaded was an amazing find, every song they played crowded the dance floor. They were so much fun that our group would like to hire them every year for our annual event and I’d like to hire them for my Husband’s Birthday too, can’t wait to hear them again!”
Kim L., Tiburon, CA

“Locked-N-Loaded is a hidden treasure. From a business standpoint, they are professional, well organized, and well worth the money to see or hire. From an entertainment standpoint, the band is AMAZING! They cover new and old tunes, and sound great! They get the crowd moving and having fun. Add them to your list of must-see bands, you won’t be disappointed!”
Rachel Cameron Photography, Sacramento, CA

“We have used several bay area bands in the past and took a chance to have them come down to San Francisco. They were one of the best bands we have ever used for our event. Was probably just lucky to have found them and I can highly recommend them to anyone having a large festival as this is a very professional group and we enjoyed their music and show just as much as their laid back and easy going personalities!!. A day the city will always remember!”
Cynthia M., San Francisco, CA (Event Planner)

“An incredible, professional show that all of our employees are still talking about. They handled every request and even sang the National Anthem for us. They brought a very professional sound company with full stage lighting and really made the show spectacular. We will use them again.”
