“The Best! I cannot say enough good things about the Walton Stout Band (and either could my wedding guests!) They are some of the most talented musicians and wonderful people to work with. The Walton Stout Band made my wedding reception AMAZING. They played very well selected dinner music and then the dance floor was packed while they played some of the best music from different time periods. Guest from the ages of 5 to 85 loved them and the music worked really well with a crowd of all ages. Not only did the Walton Stout Band provide incredible music, but they also helped the reception flow and took so much stress off the planning process.”

“They are true professionals and so fun to work with! Definitely the best decision we made when it came to our reception. We had such a blast with them that we went to see them perform the day we got back from our honeymoon! We are huge fans now and I would highly recommend them for any occasion! Since the wedding, I have heard from so many guests how much they enjoyed the band and how much fun they had! Months later it's still the first thing I hear from wedding guest! If you are considering a band, The WSB is the absolute best and will make your event one that will never be forgotten. Thank you WSB for playing a huge part in the best night of our lives, we can't wait to see you all again at one of your performances!”

From the Parents
“I cannot say more positive things about The Walton Stout Band!! Leading up to our wedding date I was in frequent communication with the band, specifically Bill and Kristi. The band as a whole was so nice and professional, and they really made an effort to get to know me, my husband and my family. They were more than happy to structure their breaks and set times around what we were looking for, and they learned more than one special song for us without a problem. They truly went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable going into our wedding reception! It has been a little over a month since our wedding and I still get calls and texts asking who our band was. I have received more compliments on our wedding - specifically our wedding band - which is the best feeling as a bride! The Walton Stout Band was worth every penny! I have nothing but great things to say about them.”
Allison and Houston

“The Walton Stout Band took our wedding to the next level. Countless friends and relatives told us we had the best wedding band they had ever seen and we 100% agree. Their professionalism, light show, and ability to pack the dance floor are just a few of the numerous reasons to book this group of talented individuals for your upcoming event. While planning our wedding, we were told "It's all about the band" and if you want to have a night you'll look back on every single day, you have to book this band!! Thanks again for everything, Spencer and Courtney”
The Walton Stout Band took our wedding to the next level.
“Our wedding in October 2017 was memorable for many reasons, but the music and performance from Walton Stout Band was one of the main reasons it was a night that none of our wedding guests will ever forget. Your expertise and experience gave me a peace of mind at a time when most brides would have been panicking. I will be forever grateful for all the memories you created for us that special evening and look forward to following your band more in the future. ”
JP and Lauren
“We absolutely loved your band at our wedding. You all exceeded our expectations and went above and beyond to create the atmosphere we were aiming for at our reception. We loved the horn entrance and the way that your band interacted with the crowd. The flow was perfect and your team is unbelievably talented!”

“Thank you and the Walton Stout Band for the wonderful evening of excellent music and entertainment. From the start of the celebration to the end, each and every element was first class. The way you emceed the evening and kept things moving and energetic through each transition was amazing. We've had so many ask for the name of that great band that was so fun. You exceeded our expectations. I would recommend you to anyone interested in creating the perfect evening for their daughter or son who is being married. You did it for us and we are very grateful. Rusty & Devon Phenix, ”
From Mom and Dad
“I’ve never seen people have so much fun! I just have to tell you that your attention to detail and being just “on” in all aspects was just so appreciated at our kids’ wedding last Friday night. My word, I’ve never seen people have so much fun. Me included. Thank you so much and more for providing us an evening we won’t ever forget-the band made the night. You all rock-and we loved every moment. Tell me where you’d like reviews or any positive feedback and I’m all yours!”
“Best thing we did!
My husband and I hired Walton Stout for our wedding. It was the best decision we made. Walton Stout was incredible. They are true professionals. Our entrance and exit from our wedding was incredible. We were led in and out by the horn section of the band. They learned all the songs we requested. I have received so many compliments on the band. We will be following this band to different venues across DFW from now on. They really made our party! Highly highly recommend this band!”
From the Bride and Groom
“Life of the party!
This band made the night! We had so much fun getting to know this band by going to watch them preform several times before our wedding and then they did an OUTSTANDING job at the reception! They were very organized and helpful with the time-line planning and were played everything that we requested including a song that they had to learn for us. We are huge fans and will continue to be fans for life! If I could get married all over again, I would just because of this band ha!”
Life of the party!
“I cannot say enough wonderful things about this band and all of the members!! I would say choosing them as our band was the BEST decision we made. My husband and I were even saying right after wedding, if we did it all over again we would 100% have the Walton Stout band. We received multiple calls/text with people asking who they were and where they could see them play again! So now we have a huge group of friends and family that are planning and going to see them play live very soon!!”
Life of the Party! part II
“Your band is incredible! We were guests at the wedding last night and I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful evening. Your band is incredible but your people surpass the quality of your band. Everyone was so pleasant and accommodating. We had a blast. I'm just a guy and I don't have any events coming up to book you for...I wish I did! I've never sent a band a thank you note either. But I just wanted to encourage y'all and thank you for making not just McKinley and Tyler's night so special but all of us who were blessed to attend. Everybody had great things to say about y'all this morning at breakfast. May our Lord continue to bless you all! Thanks.”
I cannot tell you how many people have commented on the band. It has been NONSTOP with people asking “WHO ARE THEY??” Besides McKinley and Tyler, I think you all made the evening and I wanted you to know that. You were fun, professional, concerned about the schedule, and definitely know how to have a party! It was absolutely perfect. So Bill…. When we first spoke and you said ya’ll were the best in town… I believe you and you proved it! Keep it up!”
“Best part of our wedding reception!
I cannot say enough good things good things about the band! From the very beginning, they were responsive, kind, fun, and on the ball. In addition to music, they setup lighting during our ceremony. Our reception was an absolute blast and the sound was fantastic. More than any other part of our wedding, we have had more comments on how fun and entertaining the band was. As the bride, I'm a bit bias... but it was definitely the most fun I've ever seen people have at a wedding. Everyone was dancing and singing. Best decision we could have made. We plan to see them play again at the Glass Cactus this month!”
“You'd be crazy not to use Walton Stout Band!I am a classical/jazz pianist and my husband is an avid record collector... When we starting planning our wedding and thought about a "Wedding Band", we both cringed. We thought we would have to bite the bullet and put up with cheesy music for 4 hours. We didn't think it would be POSSIBLE to please us with our taste in music. My cousin and wedding planner recommended the Walton Stout Band, and we agreed to hire them. We told them a list of songs we didn't want, a list of songs we did and crossed our fingers.The night of our wedding, we (and EVERYONE else at our wedding) were BLOWN AWAY!!! They honored our (very picky) requests, learned new songs and played EXACTLY what we wanted and didn't want. My husband and I were SO IMPRESSED!!”
“Everyone had a blast at our wedding and EVERYONE commented on how awesome the band was. On a side note... My mom wanted to hire the Emerald City Band because she had seen them perform multiple times, but they were booked the night of our wedding. The day after our wedding my mom came up to me and said, "They were better than Emerald City band! I'm so glad we found them!"So there you have it... You'd be crazy not to use Walton Stout Band.”

“Amazing!! Totally exceeds 5 stars!!!
We could not have asked for a better band as far as performance goes or better people to work with!! Let me start out by saying that every single person we had contact with from the Walton Stout band was absolutely amazing to work with! I cannot think of a single negative thing to say about them. Bill & Kristi are the 2 primary people you work with and both go above and beyond to make sure your wedding day is exactly as it should be.”
