THE PERFECT BLEND OF LIVE MUSIC AND RECORDED MUSIC
A Wedding Band AND a DJ
Based out of Metro Detroit Michigan, Fritts and Chips are a wedding band with a twist.
For centuries there has been a wedding music conundrum: An acoustic guitar player or a slimed down Jazz trio are affordable but don’t provide enough energy. Having a DJ provides a danceable environment but doesn’t have the authenticity and connection live players provide. A full band is often out of the budget.
Here comes Fritts and Chips on a golden two person horse, with instruments, and a wagon with a DJ in it. We put together a special trio just for weddings that include Fritts and Chips and a professional DJ so that we can slay this wedding Dragon for you. Fritts and Chips are one of the most versitile wedding bands in Detroit. We play all different genres of music live and recorded and span all different energy levels and feels. We can adjust to whatever the wedding needs and the best part is that we are affordable and won’t be knocking grandma over by trying to stuff 10 musicians into a small space!
Whatever You Need
If you are looking for a modern approach to the ceremony with your favorite songs we offer a unique acoustic experience for wedding ceremonies that include a combination of voice, acoustic guitar, and percussion. Pick a couple of your favorite songs and we will play them in a stripped down version for your ceremony.
This is where Fritts and Chips shine. We have live music selections from just about every genre and can cover any mood. In addition to this, the DJ can play anything imaginable. The dance floor comes alive with a mix of live music and the DJ.

LIVE music for reception
This is where Fritts and Chips shine. We provide easy going music while the guests are mingling and then turn up the energy and tempo when its time to dance and party!

They exceeded every one of our expectations
When planning our wedding we always knew we wanted to have a live band. While researching bands, we happened across Fritts and Chips and listened to a couple of their songs online and were blown away. We reached out and they were beyond friendly and professional. We were lucky enough to get to check them out live before our wedding and we instantly knew we made the right decision. The guys are very easy to work with and go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable with every detail prior to your big day. They play music from every genre and if they don’t know a song they are willing and able to learn it. Come the day of our wedding they exceeded every one of our expectations. I can’t recall a single guest that didn’t at least once mention how much they enjoyed the band and how talented they were along with DJ Dave. The dance floor was always full and everyone had an amazing night. We will continue to highly recommend Fritts and Chips to all of our friends who are getting married in the future.

They were the most positive, kind, professional, punctual, and FUN guys to work with!!
Fritz and Chips was one of our favorite decisions we made over our wedding! They were the most positive, kind, professional, punctual, and FUN guys to work with!! They were all smiles and incredibly confident in making sure everything ran smoothly and perfectly. We left it up to them to read the crowd to know what music to play, and we have no regrets! They had everyone on our dance floor and were so interactive. We loved that they have a perfect mix of DJ and live performing, and many of our guests made a point to share that they could never tell the difference between the two because they were that fantastic! Our five year old daughter had so much fun dancing with them and they were so sweet with her, even including singing her name in a few songs! We are so grateful for their kindness and joy they brought to our wedding and the incredible memories they helped create with all of our friends and family. We would hire them over and over again, and recommend everyone to hire Fritz and Chips on for their special day!!

I could not have picked better entertainment
These guys are talented! I could not have picked better entertainment, they really helped my wedding stand out and made it memorable. My guests danced the night away, the dance floor was crowed the entire night. If I could give them more stars I would. They were very professional and fun. Planning was stress free and enjoyable. They played all my requests and were very good at reading the crowd. I still have people telling me how great they were over a month after my wedding. I highly recommend they for any event.
