The Best Wedding Bands

Designed for discerning couples and families, Drywater maintains the highest standards for talent, performance, production, and customer service. Serving Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, Fort Worth, and beyond.

The Show

For cocktail and dinner the band plays lower volume slow and mid tempo songs. When it's party time, the group provides non-stop high energy entertainment focusing on audience interaction, choreography and always keeping the dance floor full. Engaging the audience and never missing a beat, The Drywater Band performs one power house sing-a-long after another in a series of rehearsed medleys, segues, and transitions.

Master of Ceremonies

Drywater's MC's are well adept at following following your itinerary, communicating with venue and planning contacts, and performing master of ceremonies duties. Common announcements include bride and groom introduction, the serving of meals, special dances, cake cutting, toasts, garter & bouquet toss, last dance, and departure.

Special Dances

The Drywater Band knows several specialty selections including The Grand March, The Money Dance, The Hora, The Anniversary Dance, and The Second Line. Brides, grooms, and parents have several options for special dances in our extensive list of first dance, father/daughter, and mother/son dances.

Best Wedding Band in Texas

Drywater is the VERY best wedding band in the state of Texas. Andrea and Bruce were so professional and easy to work with. The band was phenomenal. Everyone - from grandparents to college friends to kids - were on the dance floor the entire night. I was absolutely blown away and could not have been happier that we hired Drywater. Go book them NOW for your event!!
