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 and honored to be chosen for “Best Of Weddings” by The Knot and the “Couples Choice” award by Wedding Wire for 2022.
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 and has a limited song selection.
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 versatile 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 venue!

When we found Fritts and Chips, they just sounded like my dream option!! Which they were!
When we started looking into music options for our wedding we were so torn on if we wanted live music or to get a DJ. I had always envisioned having live music, but also know the benefits of getting a DJ and utilizing that option. When we found Fritts and Chips, they just sounded like my dream option!! Which they were! A mix of both live and DJ music, something I didn’t even know I could get all in one! Leading up to the day they were so easy to work with, very responsive, and pleasant to communicate with. The day of the wedding everything just went so great!! The music was on point and the guys were fantastic at adjusting based on the vibe of the guests. Our dance floor always had someone up there excited about what what playing and just having a fun time! Since the wedding, we have had so many of our guests tell us how much they loved the music and that they loved the mix of live and the DJ. We are so so happy we found Fritts and Chips and were able to have them be part of our wedding day. Would highly recommend including them in your plans!!

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 cannot tell you the number of people that remarked about how amazing they were
5 Stars does not do these guys justice ! They were spectacular to work with leading up to the event. We gave them the musical genres and bands we love and trusted them to run the play. From the live and curated set ahead of the wedding, to the acoustic cocktail hour outside to the reception afterwards Fritts and Chips were on point and made for a perfect day ! I cannot tell you the number of people that remarked about how amazing they were, they read the crowd and played the right songs at the right times. Requests were accommodated quickly and blended into the plan seamlessly. The mix of live and DJ’d music was perfect, the set list flowed flawlessly and there wasn’t a moment where people weren’t singing and dancing along. We thought of ourselves as a ‘non-dancing crowd’ and felt the live music would add a live music pub feel to the night where people would just converse with music in the background … we were way off. Old and young took to the floor and danced til we had to vacate the venue. I can’t recommend Fritts and Chips enough !
