Complete Desire is THE BEST!!! They played at my sister's wedding in VA and then we got them to travel to Cape Cod, MA for my own wedding two years later. And both times they were incredible! If you want a packed dance floor and people talking about your wedding band for years to come, this is the band for you. They were so good, two of my best friends had them play at their weddings too! I am now just sad I don't have a Complete Desire wedding on my calendar to look forward to. My friends and I are already talking about 40th birthday parties and using them :)
What a memorable moment June 7 was for Brice and Reid (as well as for Anna Kate and me). A big chunk of the credit goes to Complete Desire and all the fine folks who represented your band so well. Everyone's thorough, professional approach, the group's imagination and creativity, as well as the personal warmth each of you brought to the Hipp Celebration made a great package. I have been booking bands from the basement of the Phi Delt House in Lexington, the pavilion at Pawleys Island and to the top of Paris Mountain for forty plus years. Complete Desire gets full credit for being on the scene six hours before start time. It was obvious you wanted to make sure that the venue was appropriately prepared and the set up was arranged to your high standards. The quality of Complete Desire's performance was reflected in the thoroughness of your group. We hope you enjoyed that evening as much as the 400 people who celebrated with us enjoyed you. And, we would be delighted to be a reference.
Hi Flash and Complete Desire! I don't know where to begin! Thank you for making my wedding the best party I have ever been to in my life!! I have been getting e-mails, phone calls and letters from all my guests saying how much they enjoyed ya'll. I have never seen so many people dance at a wedding. My sister is getting married next May and she'll be calling you to book the date soon...so I can't wait until we all get to see you perform again! In my past job as a wedding planner out of every band I have ever worked with you are not only the best performers but the nicest and by far the most professional! I cannot express my gratitude to you enough...you are the absolute BEST!!

As my wife and I reflect on our daughter's beautiful wedding, there is no detail from the wedding itself to the reception we would change. It was an absolutely perfect evening in every respect. As far as our experience with your band Complete Desire, it, too, was perfect in every respect. When we started the process a year ago, we looked at videos of a number of different bands and yours "stood out from the rest". We could not have been more pleased with your professionalism from the moment we booked your band until the reception was over and you were packing to leave. It was quite obvious with the number of people who stayed until the absolute end, young and old alike, that the performance of your band was phenomenal! The delightful smiles on our daughter's and son-in-law's faces as they danced with Complete Desire told it all!! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping provide a wonderful lifetime of memories and feel free to use me as a reference for future promotions for your band either by letter or by phone.
Flash, I want to tell all of you at COMPLETE DESIRE that you were the BEST EVER!!!!!!! As I told you in our phone conversations, my daughter Carrie's number one priority for her wedding was the band ....food being second!! The minute the music started, I knew we had made the right decision. Old and young alike hit the dance floor and never got off. In fact I never got a chance to speak to you because I was out there dancing with every male and female ..... says a lot for a 61 year old woman!!! We have never had more fun. I loved the way you got the guests interacting with you. I am sure you remember my friend Mollie in the red dress ...by the way she is from Atlanta. With your fabulous music, she entertained us all night. Also I cannot tell you how many people came up and asked me where I found the fabulous band. I do know you will be getting bookings from friends at the wedding. In fact we have already recommended you to Liza Martendale ....you will be performing for her in Charleston in May. So I thank all of you ever so much for giving us such a fun, memorable, action filled and dynamic night. I could barely walk for 2 days ....oh and I especially thank you for playing my all time favorite, I CAN'T HELP MYSELF ....a wonderful tribute to the late great Levi Stubbs. Take care, a million thanks and hope to be at an event where you are performing soon.

Guy and I cannot thank you enough for such an incredible performance. Our friends and families have not stopped commending us on "Complete Desire" as you could tell, we all had a wonderful time. Your professionalism expertise and patience (with me) was greatly appreciated. I truly believe someday I will read about Rodney Flash Epps making it big in Hollywood. Best of luck to you and your band and thank you again for making our big day a very memorable and enjoyable time.

Dear Flash, You and Complete Desire were awesome! Thank you for turning my wedding into an all-out celebration, not to mention, being so easy to work with and so accommodating. You made the whole process, from booking your band to showing up and setting up for the reception, absolutely easy and pleasant. Thank you for your hard work and TALENT. Feel free to use me as a reference - I would sing you and Complete Desire's praises a million times over.

On June 22 you gave the people in Selma, Alabama a show that has been much talked about and will never be forgotten. My entire family and all of our friends agree that you did, in fact MAKE our reception. When anyone asks me what my favorite part of the wedding was, my immediate answer is, "the band!" You are an amazingly talented group of artists. Your music is exceptional and your show unequaled, but more than that, you are a most professional group of people. Working with you was at once easy and fulfilling and each and every band member was a true joy to work with. You are truly the best of the best in the industry and I was the luckiest bride to have the opportunity to have you at our wedding. I think my father told you that he has represented people like Otis Redding and James Brown in legal matters. He said that you were even better than they were and that you are on your way to the big time. Enjoy the ride and let me know if there is ANYTHING I can ever do for you. You certainly did a lot for us and we will never forget it. One more thing- the country club manager called us to ask if we would have a one-year anniversary party. As it turns out, they didn't much care about us, but wanted to see Complete Desire again. Thanks again for making our night the best it could be.
We booked Complete Desire for our daughter's wedding and couldn't have been more pleased. The band handled all of our song requests beautifully and even learned a song or two. They were great entertainers and had everyone out on the dance floor all night long, even the guests who swore that they were not dancers. To add variety, they called people up on stage and came into the crowd. They also handled MC duties well, calling out the special dances, bouquet throwing, etc. I would book them again in a heartbeat and recommend them highly.
