The Most Sought After Wedding Band from the Nation’s Capital!
They have an infectious energy that just can’t be matched.
The band’s foundation starts with Founder/Manager & Multi-instrumentalists, John Hall. His efforts over the years in developing this band has culminated into the creation of the area’s most polished, entertaining musical group, which on a weekly basis perform at a level not seen in this area before. Roughly 6 years ago, John signed then American Idol finalist, Travis Tucker, as the band’s new lead singer, giving the band new dynamics with his smooth vocals and debonair looks. Now-a-days, Travis shares responsibilities in leading the band as Co-Band Leader. Along side Travis, MILLENNIUM features the vocal talents of Julie Humphries as MILLENNIUM’S lead female singer. Her vocal versatility goes unmatched in this area to say the least. Her musical range allows for her to start an event singing a sweet, sultry ballad, like an original by Adele, to belting out scorching rock vocals by Nirvana! Never forgotten is founding band member, Iggy Washington, who acts as the bands Hype-man and lead personality. There is not another entertainer in the area that can stir up a crowd the way he does it! His dancing ability, along with his presence on the microphone gives MILLENNIUM an edge that most bands just don’t have! The back line is where you find the unsung heroes of MILLENNIUM. Bass player/keyboard bassist Chris Mortera is what every band hopes for in a bass player. Whether he’s playing his upright bass during a dinner set or funkin’ out during a dance set, Chris always over-delivers! Guitarist Zach Dupy has brought a rock style to MILLENNIUM that’s pushed the band to a whole other level! A band cant rock unless the guitarist has a passion for it…Zach surely does! There is no question though that the backbone of the rhythm section is the newest member of the band, Drummer John Thomakos. He has played with the like of Vanessa Carlton and most recently was on tour with Cirque du Soleil’s, Kooza. His skill set is rare and unreal and has breathed new life into what is already a truly amazing band.If you have your event date and are still considering live entertainment, fill out the form to the right so one of our Event Consultants can email you some information on MILLENNIUM!

“Everyone raved about Millennium.
You were so professional, energetic and entertaining down to the last minute.
I didn’t want the night to end.”

We used PEG to book Millennium for our Wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club. Chuck Kahanov was great to work with.
The band was completely amazing!!! We actually went to watch LIVE for a open house performance with my wife and her folks. They were blown away. John and Travis from Millennium were very professional and easy to work with. We requested a few new songs for them that they learned with ease for our first dance and father/mother dances. We liked them so much we used them for our ceremony music where they used just John on guitar and Travis on vocals. It was truly beautiful. All our people commented on how great the acoustic set was. We then used them for our cocktail hour with just light background music which was also excellent. Then the real party began with the reception. The band never stopped, never took a break. They worked the crowd and interacted with people. The lead singers danced with the crowd and interacted with everyone. The guitarist was wireless so he came outside where we were smoking cigars and played and then played up on the bar. It was an awesome reception because of the band. Everyone remarked how tight the band sounded and how interactive they were with the audience. They were great to work with and allowed us to have a friend who is a singer/songwriter perform a song during the breaks. They were great emcee’s also. Overall the best wedding band I have every seen or worked with. Truly excellent. I would definitely recommend PEG and Millennium!
I can’t say enough good things about both PHilly Event Group but more specifically the band, Millennium. They were AMAZING!!!! We had booked them based on the video clips and their song list but then heard them in person at a bridal show and were wow’ed! Little did I know that they were even more amazing than that. They truly made the reception! Everyone raved that they were the BEST band they’ve every heard at a wedding. John Hall was great to work with on the front end and Travis the lead singer (former finalist on American Idol) made sure that everything happened as it should. They did a terrific job on figuring out what type of music to play when. They got EVERYONE on the dance floor. We couldn’t have been happier with them!!! BOOK THEM!!!!!!

We used Millennium for our wedding and could not be happier. I can’t even put into words how AMAZING they were that night. We didn’t even talk to them about what to play that night and they knew exactly how to work the crowd. I saw people dancing that I have never seen dance in my life! They were truly the hit of the wedding. I’m still getting calls about how amazing they sounded. Our only regret is that we didn’t video tape the wedding so we could hear them again!! Thank you, thank you!!! Incredible band and Travis was a gem as the leader of the band John Hall. He knew exactly what to play from the light dinner music to getting the crowd moving after dinner. I can’t wait to have a party and hire them again!!!

We used Millennium through Philly Event Group and have nothing but the most positive things to say about them. They were absolutely incredible through the entire 4 hour reception. They are the most energetic band I have ever seen and kept at least 150 of our 200 guests on the dance floor the ENTIRE night. Our guests are still calling us, almost 2 months after our wedding, raving about Millennium. They can’t get over their incredible voices and amazing dancing skills! I loved how interactive they were with our guests, dancing with us on the dance floor and letting us dance with them on the stage. My only wish is that we added another hour to the reception because 4 hours with Millennium was just not enough!
We also used PEG for our videography. Jeff Schofield and David Harris shot the wedding. They were very professional and so awesome to work with. They had amazing ideas of creative ways to shoot us and fun things to include in the video. They were extremely unobtrusive (we barely saw them the entire night, but they managed to get every last detail!) I was shocked how quick our video was completed and sent to us (6 weeks!) The editing was unbelievable, big thanks to Dawn Griffin! We got a short 3 minute clip to send to friends and family (who haven’t stopped talking about it) and we also got a longer 10 minute highlight reel along with our 2+ hour video. The 10 minute reel is perfect to pop in if we’re feeling nostalgic, but don’t have 2 hours to sit and watch the entire video. We strongly recommend both Millennium and Washington Talent Videography!
We had Millennium perform at our wedding. First of all, 5 stars is so not enough. 1,000 stars is what Millennium deserves! Outrageous, outstanding, phenomenal are just some words I can say to describe how I feel about John, Travis and the rest of the band. People were on their feet dancing the entire night. All of our guests are still talking about how outstanding the band was. One of our friends said she felt like she was listening to her Ipod – they played every genre, every decade!! Travis is a super star – his voice and dance moves are amazing! John, the leader of the band and keyboard player performed during our ceremony and it was the perfect touch. Classy and beautiful! I can’t thank Millennium enough for their absolutely fantastic performance at our wedding. From the first time we heard Millennium perform, we knew we had to have them no matter what! Michelle “From beginning to end, everything was awesome! You were easy to work with and extremely flexible. Keep doing exactly what you’re doing!”
Bridget Henry Dave Sherman (Sales Director),
Hiring a band was a source of contention between me and everyone else. My husband, mother and father-in-law all tried to talk me into a DJ because of the price difference. I insisted that a live band made all the difference. Well, I am not sure that is a true statement. However, “Millennium” made all the difference. I can not even begin to tell you how many people came up to me (including our photographer, who is at one wedding a weekend-at least) and said that Millennium was the best wedding band they have ever seen. My father is a musician (he even played with the band) and he still can not get over how wonderful the band was. From the moment the reception began until the last note of the last song, the dance floor was full! It far surpassed my expectations (which were already high because I saw Millennium at a wedding the year before). I know that my wedding would have been beautiful and fun if I didn’t have Millennium, but because we booked them, that is why everyone is calling me and telling me we had “the most fun wedding they ever went to.” I also can not tell you how many people have told me that they LOVED the music that Millennium played during dinner. It was quiet, nice and set a wonderful tone. We were also very impressed with how they covered so many different genres of music, but sounded equally wonderful on every genre. At my wedding my Maid of Honor called her friend and told them to book Millennium. On a business side, working with you and John was wonderful. You both made me feel like I was the only bride you were working with and no request was too difficult or odd. You always called me back and everything that you promised was fulfilled. The week before the wedding I had a lengthy conversation with John and just talking to him made me forget all the wedding stress and get excited to dance the night away. My wedding was my favorite day of my life. I want to do it over and over again, but only if Millennium is there. I even told the band that if they ever need a ringer at a wedding, I will come and get people up on the dance floor. On a totally different note, my girlfriends are all talking about how hot Travis Tucker is and they are sad he has a girlfriend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for providing such exemplary service, and having such an incredible band!!! Betsy
