We do every wedding with the best of care, detail, timing and precision. We are extremely dedicated and committed to our brides and grooms because we realize how important music is to a wedding. We can help with planning your most special day every step of the way because we have our very own events coordinator to assist with planning the exact music you want played on your wedding. In addition, we work with many great and reputable wedding planners that we can recommend.
Working with Corporations are a pleasure and joy. We work with many great companies and we love providing music for their events and nothing pleases us more than to make the company and it's guest feel comfortable with a happy and festive musical atmosphere. However, some just want a nice simple background setting which is all your choice. Let us know what your wishes are for your company event.
Social events are awesome. The picture above is a great example taken at an event we played for at the Mayflower Hotel in DC, in which there were many firms represented for an evening of networking, presentations and conversation. The site event planner brought us in to provide a small jazz trio for the perfect light touch to set the mood and ambiance. Needless to say, the night went great because the trio wasn't overbearing but served it's purpose as the background. This group is great for office parties a well!
Dear Mr. Franklin, we remember the great job that you did for Adrienne and Tim's wedding! What did you put in the musical sauce? Smiles for they are expecting their third child

Concerned Black Men National hired Howard Franklin Music to provide musical entertainment during the Organization’s Annual Congressional Black Caucus Receptions. The Howard Franklin Band musicians as well as the singers are very talented and were “on point” with their music selection and performance. We especially appreciated the professionalism exhibited by Howard Franklin which led us to hire his band on several occasions. I highly recommend Howard Franklin Music- Leroy Hughes, Jr.; Chief Operating Officer of Concerned Black Men International
Howard Franklin Music' s Wildflower Band was great. By far, this band was one of my best investments. They were wonderful! Everyone enjoyed the music so much, our banquet manager had a hard time getting people to sit down and eat dinner! They played a range of music so that everyone heard something they loved. We felt like the music was customized for us. There were no generic playlists. Years after the wedding, friends and family continue to talk about the band, the music, and how they had such a great time. My mission was accomplished!

I am still taken aback by the overwhelming feedback that my husband and I are still getting to this day. Howard Franklin and his band really DID IT at my wedding… From the interlude of soft music playing as the guest arrived to the head bouncing tunes of all genres of songs that the band played until it was over…I cannot express how much we were so appreciative and thankful for his music on my wedding day. There was never a delay in music…it continued to play on and on and on….
My favorite song was instrumentally orchestrated during my processional and also our First dance. Howard and his band were on point without a FLAW….His charismatic smile just made all of my guests feel so light on their feet and feel his music!!!! Thank you Howard Franklin and the Wildflower Band

We Hired Howard Franklin Music as the live band for our wedding in 2010. Not only did they exceed expectations with their multiple talents both instrumental and vocal, they also came with personality and a true musical spirit. They were a hit with our guest young, old and in between. We would without reservation recommend them to others, and will use them again for future functions.
