The Sneakers Band led by Ted McKee is a dynamic party group with countless weddings, corporate events and festivals under their belts!


Father of the Bride


Just wanted to let you know how happy my family and I were with The Sneakers music for my sons wedding.  I could not have asked for a better group of talented musicians who were also so accommodating and helpful in every regard.  As a busy working musician myself I was concerned how this would all turn out.  Ted and The Sneakers band exceeded all my expectations and I would highly recommend them to anyone.  Thanks so much for arranging all this and as the saying goes, the music definitely makes the party!-David D.

“Dear Ted, a huge thanks to you and the Sneakers! The music was absolutely fantastic! Everyone said the music was the best they had ever heard and many guests were exhausted from dancing the night away! Thank you!”

- Danyel and Rick




We chose The Sneakers as our band to provide the entertainment for our daughter’s wedding day! We had had the opportunity to hear them at another wedding and LOVED THEM!! They play soo many great songs, so easy to contact and communicate with, fun to dance to, and always anxious to help out in any way possible. Our daughter and her fiancé (now husband) picked out dozens of songs, their special song, etc. and The Sneakers played all evening! We had some special requests from some of their friends throughout the night so special groups could gather on the dance floor, and The Sneakers were more than happy to accommodate and play those special songs, too!! They are an awesome band; very fun, yet always showing decorum and respect for what they do and for whom they are providing entertainment! We would highly recommend them!
