“The Dirty Pioneers are our favourite live band. They are such a dynamic and passionate group of talented artists. We have seen them play a number of times and were thrilled to have them perform at our wedding. The night proved to be even more amazing then we dreamed possible with their incredible entertainment and infectious energy. The transitions were seamless and our guests are still raving about it. Their set list is full of music for all generations, which ensures each experience speaks to any crowd. Whether you check them out one evening in your area, hire them for a wedding or for a special event, I promise it will be memorable time!”0P4C1894

CGC Inc.

CGC has worked with The Dirty Pioneers on a number of occasions over the past several years for both internal and external functions. The group has always been extremely professional and quick to accommodate / adapt to meet the preferences of varying demographics. The Dirty Pioneers have always done a excellent job engaging our target audience, exceeding our expectations on all accounts. I would highly recommend the group and will be using them again in future endeavours.

Wow…what can I say? Despite knowing half the band members for more than a decade, they blew me away when performing at our wedding. What an amazing group, so full of talent and energy you can’t help but get on the dance floor as soon as the first notes begin to play. They create such a vibrant energy that no one can escape their musical grip. I can’t begin to thank them enough. They turned an already amazing day into something I will never forget. Watching the smiles light up on the faces of our guests when they would start a song was priceless. They were also so incredibly sweet and patient with my son. By the end of the night he was up on stage dancing and singing with them and they never complained once. They made him feel so special and like he was part of the band himself. I would HIGHLY recommend The Dirty Pioneers for any function that would benefit from fun, dancing and one hell of a good time!!
Thank you all so much!
Love the Morris Family

“The Dirty Pioneers played our outdoor wedding on June 24th 2017 and brought down the house! Their upbeat set list crosses all genres and decades of music, which had all our guests on the dance floor busting a move or singing along with the very talented group. They are professional, fun, and dedicated to their craft. We would highly recommend them for any event if you want to have a great time! Megan & Jordy Lewis”

“The Dirty Pioneers provided the music for our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. They were our first vendor booked after we got engaged. We have known the band for quite a few years so they were the clear choice. It meant a lot to us to have them there, I was especially happy that they played our first dance; it sounded great and defiantly made the moment more special.
Jay was exceptional with his input; while I had trouble deciding on the ceremony music, he worked with my suggestions and edited the music perfectly.
When we announced we were having the Dirty Pioneers play our wedding we had a lot of messages saying they could not wait to get on the dance floor.
And those who were not familiar with the band, I have had nothing but rave reviews. Everyone was really pleased with the quality, variety of music and the energy that was brought.
I hope you guys had as much fun as we did. Cheers.”

“The Dirty Pioneers did an amazing job performing at our wedding! We decided early on that having a live band at our wedding was really important to us, as we are both music lovers. When a family member recommended The Dirty Pioneers to us, and after checking them out for ourselves at one of their gigs, we knew they were the band for us! Throughout the planning process they quickly responded to any questions we had, in a professional yet personable manner. Many of our friends and family later told us how impressed they were, with the band’s talent, energy, and obvious love of performing. Everyone had a great time dancing all night and singing along to the wide variety of well known songs they played. Their performance was exactly what we had imagined for our wedding, and we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!”

“The Dirty Pioneers were a fantastic band for our event. We had a golf tournament and then enjoyed our dinner outside. When dinner was over we were dancing under the stars to some really good music. The Dirty Pioneers had everyone grooving and their DJ selections kept us moving during their breaks. Thank you, we all had a blast!! “

Bristol & Laurie

“My wife and I just wanted to give a huge thank you to you and your entire band for being part of our wedding day. Not only did you put on an amazing show, but your personalities and character resonated with all of our guests. You were polite and friendly to everyone, and every bit of feedback we have received have all sang your praises. Thank you for allowing some guests (and myself included) to take part in some music as well.
And finally, thank you for allowing our song choices be played , even if they seemed a little odd for a wedding…….  (wrestling themes).
You were part of our first date, our engagement and our wedding, and we couldn’t be more happier to call you friends”

“Music is a big part of our lives, so when planning our wedding we knew we needed to have a live band!  We were fortunate to have thoroughly enjoyed The Dirty Pioneers at a friend’s wedding last year and on the drive home emailed them a request for our own wedding a year later.  Not only do these folks provide a versatile, never-to-disappoint performance, they are also the most easy going, stress-free vendors we had the opportunity to work with.  Whether you are planning a big event or a more casual, crowd pleasing social, we highly recommend The Dirty Pioneers.  Our guests are still raving about them!”

 “We were getting married in September 2016, and the one and only thing that really mattered to us except the actual marriage was a great band, we didn’t want a DJ. My husband and I are festival, concert going rockers that wanted our day to represent the one thing we love MUSIC.  We chose The Dirty Pioneers because they play a variety of everything, there was something for everyone that was in attendance. And Tiffany has a killer voice! The Dirty Pioneers played the previous year at a family members wedding.  The presentation, performance and professionalism stuck in my head, I needed this band at my wedding. Getting in touch with them was so easy, I just communicated with Jay through email, and everything was all set for the day. They arrived on time, performed an amazing show, that everyone still talks about 4 months later! If we ever have a large-scale party or celebration again, you know who I am going to call and recommend to others.”

Josh & Yvonne Sinka

“We had been out to see the Dirty Pioneers many times and decided to book them for our wedding. They are extremely professional in the way they manage their services as a band and were very quick to respond to all of our questions leading up to the wedding. We hired them for 3 sets of live music, plus DJ services throughout the night and the price was very reasonable for the high quality of music and entertainment they provide. Our wedding guests loved the live music and the band kept everyone dancing all night – just what we wanted. I would recommend hiring the Dirty Pioneers for a wedding or any type of private event”

Mark & Sarah Campbell

“The Dirty Pioneers played at our wedding and we cannot express enough how much they contributed to making the night as spectacular as it was! From the very first note to the last chord struck, they rocked our socks off and made it very difficult for anyone to leave the dance floor. With songs for every age and every taste, as well as letting us select our own playlist, they kept the party moving and never dropped a beat! Thank you Dirty Pioneers for taking our special occasion to the next lever and making our night!”12002276_890139634409503_499501236976689158_n

“Having seen the Dirty Pioneers several times at various locations it was a no brainer when we decided to book a band for our wedding. Not only did they provide our guests with an amazing night of dancing they also ensured my bride and I were able to have our first dance under the stars with them performing an acoustic song for our first dance. They made our wedding a night to remember.”

Tom & Amy

“We hired the Dirty Pioneers for our wedding and they were awesome!  I was living in a different city from where the wedding was being held, so Jay was prompt at replying to all my questions over email and even held the date for us for several months until we were able to meet in person.  When we were finally able to catch one of their gigs, we were blown away by Tiffany’s voice from their first sound check!  The band even learned a couple of our requests to perform at our wedding.  The whole band was friendly and easy-going and overall fun to work with, and I would not hesitate to hire them again!  Thanks guys!”picture-562

“We hired The Dirty Pioneers for our November 2014 wedding at Taboo Resort in Muskoka.  They were absolutely fantastic and definitely a highlight of the evening.  Above all else, they put on a great show and had our guests dancing into the early hours of the morning.  Just as importantly, though, they were easy to deal with, super accommodating and set a great tone for the evening.  We’d recommend them in a heartbeat.”

“As part of our Christmas Jumper holiday campaign, we held an event at the Ritz-Carlton Toronto. The Dirty Pioneers brought the right amount of festive energy to our cocktail party – from holiday classics to great covers! Many of our guests noted that the band was great and they especially loved Tiffany’s voice. Thanks for helping us make the world better with a sweater!”10850220_742694849153983_3423708144366580969_n

Stephan & Felicity

“Hiring the Dirty Pioneers for our wedding was an easy and the best choice we made because we’ve seen them play at different venues and we loved them! They were professional and very helpful in assisting me with putting together a song list. We had our wedding at the Hamilton Golf & Country club on August 18, 2012, and your band made it memorable with your excellent performance by keeping our guests on the dance floor till the early morning hours. Our guest were ranging in ages from 10 -72 years old and with the blend of old and new songs that you played, you kept everyone on their feet from start to finish! Our Dutch guests appreciated the fact that you took requests as well and played their favourite songs. You are very talented and we have been recommending you to all our friends and family. Thank you for making our wedding such an unforgettable event!”

“Thank you to the Dirty Pioneers for playing at the HHHBA President’s Gala at Liuna Station Saturday.  The music was fantastic and we had many compliments on the variety you played.  You had  everyone up dancing and that’s a testament on its own!  Thank you for being a part of our annual event and making it even better!”HHHBA325 (1)

“Book these guys NOW. They played our wedding a few days ago and I’m so glad we chose them over having just a DJ. They absolutely killed it on stage. It isn’t just one or two solid musicians, they are all really really good, and they play different songs to showcase the talent. Great repertoire, and they are good at reading the vibe of the crowd and playing the perfect next song to keep it going- after their final song I realized i had needed to pee much earlier but forgot since I didn’t want to leave the dance floor. We had so many comments about how good the band from our guests. Great great down to earth people to have met and gotten to know. They added a kick ass element to our special day. “

Shane & Kate 

“We just want to say thanks for an awesome night. I know a couple people were worried when we told them we were hiring a band, but I knew after randomly seeing you guys at Joe Dogs that I’d found the right music for the night. We got a lot of different comments on the night but by far the comment that we received the most from young and old alike was about how awesome the band was. Even the people with concerns were converted as they had “never heard a wedding band like this before!”. Thanks again for killing it out there!”
