Lloyd Dobler Effect

LDE have been full time touring musicians for two decades, having performed in over forty states and thirteen countries. The band has an impressive list of accomplishments: winners of the 99.1 WHFS Big Break Contest that pitted LDE against hundreds of area rock bands and led to several main stage appearances at the Washington DC HFStival; headlining multiple international Armed Forces Entertainment tours; and being voted one of the top ten best bands on the east coast in a Washington Post reader’s poll. LDE has been on three record labels, has 13 CDS and performs over 250 shows each year.

LDE performs between 50 and 60 weddings a year.  They are well experienced in regards to the standard order of events and working hand in hand with venue managers and wedding coordinators.

LDE has a cover song repertoire of over 1000 songs that include all genres.  The band works with you to pick what artists and songs you like and that is ALL they perform at your event.  Additionally, the band is happy to learn and perform requests.

At weddings, LDE handles all of the reception live music, the Deejaying, the emceeing and the band lighting and PA rental requirements.  LDE also has the ability to perform classical music during the ceremony and/or live music during the cocktail hour.
