Rojek Wedding

Patriot's Point, Mt. Pleasant, SC, August 31, 2019

"Planning a wedding is never easy, so worried about the gowns, food, flowers, etc… But what the guests remember long term is not the gowns, food or flowers.  What they remember is how much fun they had.  This is where The Louie D. Project made our daughter’s wedding PERFECT!!  Ceremony music was beautiful, soft jazz during dinner then following up playing music that all ages enjoyed.  The entire night everyone was off their seats smiling and dancing the night away.  Louie was very easy to work with and made sure that he met our every need.  We highly recommend the Louie D. Project and we will definitely have them at our other children’s weddings!!"

Mt. Pleasant, SC, October 24, 2019

“Mount Pleasant Towne Centre was ecstatic to have The Louis D. Project as a featured performer at our Live Under The Oaks concert series in October. There is certainly a reason they are called the Best Funk Band in town! Their music made all event guests feel like they were at a party!”

"What a great time we shared with The Louie D. Project! They have so much energy and will keep your guests on the dance floor! They did a great job communicating with us and we were very impressed with their presentation. From the moment we first contacted them, Louis made us feel at ease and walked us through a very easy booking process.  They have been the talk of the town ever since they were here.  The Louie D. Project was perfect for our event."

Osprey Point Clubhouse, Kiawah Island, SC, June , 2018

Absolutely incredible job! We hired Louie D. and his band, The Louie D. Project, to play at our rehearsal dinner and welcome party on Kiawah Island.  He also performed saxophone solos during the dinner and was outstanding.  The group was prompt and professional; but, more importantly, the music was great!  They are phenomenally talented and do a wonderful job of playing to the audience.  People danced and had a fabulous time. They really know how to work the crowd. Highly recommended for your next event!

"Louie D. took the necessary time and effort to prepare for our event to ensure the clients' music requests were honored and his set up worked well with our layout and venue limitations.  He was always so friendly, professional and accommodating each time we spoke with him leading up to our event. The day of our event, we experienced the same kindness and professionalism - it was a pleasure to work with him and The Louie D. Project and look forward to doing so again soon!"

Gaillard Municipal Auditorium, Charleston, SC May, 2017

"The Louie D. Project performed at the 20th Annual Best of Charleston Party after being nominated in 6 different  "Best Of" categories! This band has such great energy and put the crowd in a dancing mood early in the evening. Louis was quick to respond via email throughout the planning process and we would recommend his band for future events!"

Stacia Baskin - Paper Swallow Events

Charleston, SC May, 2017

"Working with The Louie D. Project for the reception music is a wonderful choice! They are great at getting all of your guests out on the dance floor and will keep the party going throughout the evening. If you start to work with them early enough in your wedding planning process, they are willing and open to learning song requests, which ensures that your reception has a personalized touch. However, if they're unable to learn your requests due to either a time constraint or some other reason, they will happily play it through their sound system for you. Louis was easy to get a hold of and communicative throughout the planning process, and the whole band showed up on time and ready to play when the big day arrived. Both the couple and their guests thoroughly enjoyed the band, and everyone was sad when the evening had to end and the band stopped playing. I would definitely recommend The Louie D. Project to any couple wanting a live music element for their reception that will keep everyone dancing on the dance floor!"

"We were beyond pleased that The Louie D. Project could play at our Wedding on April 22. Their energy was amazing, and our guests couldn't stop raving about them.  Louis Dixon kept very consistent communication with us, and made sure our song list was exactly what we wanted. Thank you very much for making our special day so memorable! We would highly recommend The Louis D. Project for any wedding or event."

"We enjoyed you, and your band.... At the Windjammer.. On My Wedding Night... April 15th.... Friday... I absolutely loved your music and look forward to hearing y'all play again....."

Summer Hamilton Birthday Party

Charleston, SC (Gadsen House) October, 2016

"We recently selected The Louie D. Project to be the band for my husband's black tie 40th birthday party that we hosted at the Gadsen House.  It was really important to us to have a band that could keep a party lively and also span a wide range of music.  We went to see them play live a couple of times before the event before making our decision and really felt like they did an even better job the night of the party.  All of our guests comments following the event mentioned the band and just how good they were.  We are hopeful to have another event that we can hire The Louie D. Project to play in the coming year or two and wholeheartedly recommend them for any event,  formal or casual!"

"James Brown was not available for our wedding so we called Louie D. instead.  We were not disappointed.  He brought the funk!  You should only hire Louis if you want everyone to dance."

Katie & Jon

Charleston, SC Dec. 18, 2014

"I think it's safe to say that every bride (and groom) wants their wedding day to be perfect.  Well, our wedding would not have been as amazing without The Louie D. Project by our sides.  Louis Dixson was nothing short of professional throughout the entire process, and he made absolute certain that our day went off without a hitch.  The band sensed when the crowd needed some relaxed dinner music, then quickly transitioned to the type of music that keeps the dance floor filled for hours.  My hubby and I wanted a fun party wedding...we achieved that easily, with The LDP as our entertainment!  Our friends keep talking about it months later...and we will always recommend Louie D. to others!!  We love them!!"

Andrea & Luke

Charleston, SC Sept. 4, 2014

"We just had The Louie D. Project play for our wedding last Saturday and they did not disappoint!  They played everything we wanted and had the dance floor packed the whole evening.  Louie was also very easy and flexible to work with leading up to the event.  I've seen them put on a great show at a bar downtown before and it was great to see that transition into a wedding as well.  Great guys, great songs, a must see for a fun funky night out on the dance floor!!  Thanks again Louie!!
