Lost Wax 


online reviews


“We have put on the Masquerade Ball for the past 8 years. We’ve never had such rave reviews about our corporate entertainment as we did Lost Wax. They are EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL and easy to work with, but their performance style alone is what sets them ABOVE THE REST. We have used several local & out of town bands but NONE HAVE COMPARED to the energy that Lost Wax brings!” – Cerner Corporation

“I am reaching out to first of all, thank you and all the band members for a tremendous showing at last month’s KVC Gala at Union Station. Our guests LOVED you all – every single person I have spoken to has mentioned Lost Wax and how fun and engaging you all were. Not only that, but the music was perfect – you all are such talented musicians. Wow! We have already begun pre-planning for next year’s Gala. We would love for you all to join us again.” Kim Madden, KVC Gala

“You guys are truly THE BEST. I heard nothing but amazing comments about you guys during (and after) the event. Please pass along to the whole crew how fantastic you are and how much people loved the show.” – Ashley Lopez, Children’s Mercy

“I just wanted to send a short note and a huge THANK YOU for an awesome event on Friday night. I lost track of the number of people that came up to us and said “BEST WABASH EVER” and it was so much because of Lost Wax. We could not have done it without you! We had a blast, our personal guests had a blast and all 800+ people in the room had a blast – please give my heartfelt thanks to everyone for their amazing work. You have an outstanding group of talented musicians there and we look forward to having you all tear it up again for us in the future.” Missy Heidrick, Wabash Cannonball

“I absolutely loved the LED dancers and the entrance – it grabbed people’s attention and got them hooked for the party. I can’t wait to see the video. I can’t thank you enough for your creativity and for being such great partners. I love creating a wow factor for guests and it makes them anticipate what we are doing from year to year – keeps it exciting. The event is so much fun and you all are a huge part of that!” Laura Lopez, American Heart Association

“Should come as no surprise that you all were an absolute hit at our gala this year, and everybody wants to book you for next year – can we start talking about next year?!” – Mike Russo, KCUR Gala

“WOW! LostWax delivered on the most epic wedding reception ever. Our guests still talk about it! I have never seen so many people get up and dance at a wedding. We planned our date around their availability because I knew they were great and I am so happy we did! Eboni, one of their female vocalists, spent the week leading up to our wedding learning our first dance song and it was perfect! LostWax is easy to work with, talented, high energy and worth every penny (and then some)! I refer them every chance I get! Thank you, thank you to the LostWax family for being so great at your jobs and making our wedding one for the books! We are big fans!” – Ashley W.

“Lost Wax is AMAZING!! We hired them for our wedding last weekend, and were blown away! They were the very first vendor we booked, and are so glad we did! They are true professionals, and have an amazing ability to create a fun experience and memorable time! John was amazing, he was super easy to work with! They learned a couple different song options that we really wanted, including our first dance, and it was awesome! They also act as the emcee, which was super important and made the evening flow flawlessly! If you’re looking for an awesome band to make your wedding the best, you’ve got to book Lost Wax! You will not be disappointed!!” – Natalie S.

“You won’t go wrong with Lost Wax as your wedding band–their energy and talent made the night. Our guests all asked us where we flew them in from, assuming we must have scoured the whole country to find a band this good. They read the room perfectly and had our guests dancing all night. They also brought a huge level of professionalism and were a delight to work with throughout the planning process. They’re the best!” – Aaron M.

“Booking Lost Wax for our reception was one of the easiest decisions we made during the wedding process. During our consultation, John was so thorough and helpful. We needed a little guidance deciding on our ceremony music and the suggestions made were perfect.” – Gina L.

“The reception was a BLAST, and the dance floor was packed all night. For weeks after guests would comment, “that band was amazing” – and they absolutely were! They have a set list that includes everything…and more! And, they’ll even learn a song if its not in their list. If you are looking for a high energy, amazingly talented band that will ensure you have a night that you and your guests will LOVE – look no further. We can’t thank Lost Wax enough for such an unforgettable night!” – Katelyn R

“Lost Wax is literally the greatest wedding band EVER!!! We are huge Lost Wax fans, and they were the first wedding vendor we booked for our big day! Music is so important to us that we actually chose our wedding date based on Lost Wax’s availability! Chris Davis is SO amazing to work with, and he really took the time to get to know us and find out what kind of vision we had for the music at our reception! We had countless people tell us that our wedding was one of the best parties they have ever been to, and that is due in large part to Lost Wax! The dance floor was packed all night long, and they even let us get on stage and sing a song with them! I would recommend Lost Wax over and over, as would all of our friends and family! I can only hope that I have another big party someday so I can hire them again! We love you Lost Wax!” – Jennifer K.

“I arranged for the band to play at a gala that I was hosting to honor the wedding professionals of Kansas City. There is a certain standard that is set when hosting a party for 400 people that are in the business of hosting parties for a living. And Lost Wax (or Yacht Wax) did not disappoint a single person there – they were full of eneregy, played old and new songs to please all guests, and kept the party going all night long! A huge thank you for making the evening a huge success!” – Britney

“If you want your dance floor to be FULL for the entirety of your wedding reception / special event, Lost Wax is a must. They are amazing to work with and will be sure to make for an unforgettable experience. I cannot say enough good things about this band. Nearly a month after our wedding and we’re still getting comments on how great the band was. Thank you for such a fun and memorable night!!” – Adam J.

“We work with Lost Wax regularly and they are our first recommendation to clients looking for a fun, non-stop party with professionals who are accommodating and easy to work with. I cannot say enough good things about Lost Wax and our experience with them!! They make the party and we are always happy to have them on our team!” – Hannah S.

”We’ve had Lost Wax at our gala for three years now and we are more impressed each year. They put on a great show and really engage our guests. They play a great mix of music and go nonstop. Our guests dance all night! As an event organizer I appreciate how professional they are and very easy to work with on every detail. They are the same high energy but also new and different each year. Our guests asked for them back next year and we agree! We plan to book again!” – Johnna N.

“I have been an event planner for 20 years in our fine city and let me say that Lost Wax delivers EVERY SINGLE TIME! The energy, attitude, crowd involvement and talent is second to none! I would hire them for my own child’s wedding! I can’t say enough. They are an insurance policy to having an incredibly successful event!” – Kelley F.

“Most amazing band in the KC Area! We first saw them playing at the old Odowd’s and immediately hired them to for our wedding 6 years ago and have hired them 2 additional times for private parties!! Very easy to work with and you won’t have more fun on the dance floor then you will at a LOST WAX party!!! PM me for any questions or reference!” – Josh K.

“Hands down, without a doubt, Lost Wax was my favorite part of my wedding. They were great to work with and brought personality, professionalism, great communication and talent to the day. If your goal is for your guests to dance nonstop throughout the night, this is the band for you. I can’t speak highly enough about how they tailored the event for us and made the experience beyond my wildest (and very high) expectations. My guests can’t stop talking about how great our band was. Thanks, team!” – Danielle T.

“Lost Wax should be your easiest wedding planning decision ever. They are so talented, professional, and FUN. Their performance, and the dance party that ensued, is the most talked about thing from our wedding, and we couldnt be happier about that! One of our guests was completely mind blown by their mashups, which are so original and a blast. They can also play anything you could imagine, if you need to even stray from their provided song list. Working with them is a total breeze. Chris Davis has wedding coordination down to a science, which was perfect for my husband and I, who had no idea the flow of emceeing a reception. And of course, they killed it. They also played our ceremony and that was such a special added touch. Overall, Lost Wax does not disappoint! You should feel confident in any combination of musicians at your event. So so glad we got them!” – Carly S.

“If you’re looking for a band for your event, look no further. Lost wax was amazing to work with! They helped with the set list and had so much energy all night!” – Justin M

“We had Lost Wax perform at our wedding in March of this year. Everyone in attendance raved about the performance and they were great to work with. I can’t imagine better entertainment for our wedding day.” – Jeff M.

“If there were 6 stars, Lost Wax would get all six. There are many memories from our special day, but by far, the most lasting impression of the evening was Lost Wax. From the moment the last speech ended and the band fired up their first tune, the dance floor was packed until the last song of the evening. I have never been to a wedding where the dance floor NEVER cleared. To this day, every time we reminisce with family and friends, it is the first thing we discuss and how special the night was thanks to Chris and his band. The process leading up to the evening was so easy. Lost Wax made it clear that they were our band for the day and anything that we needed, they were there to help. I come from a family of musicians and I can tell you that Lost Wax are true professionals through and through. Great communication, flexibility, top notch musicians that can play anything and play it well. Do not make the first mistake of your wedding planning by not hiring this amazing band. Highly recommend!” – G Glander

“Lost Wax played at my daughter’s wedding earlier this year and the very large dance floor was jam-packed from the first note to the last. The band is very professional, versatile and extremely talented. I highly suggest including the brass section and make sure you have at least 2 lead singers… not because it’s vital but because the sound and songs they play with that roster are phenomenal. Their mash-ups are fun and many are completely unexpected. Chris will keep you calm and confident leading up to the day… it’s clear they’ve done this hundreds of times. I highly recommend Lost Wax.” – Gary P.

“Lost Wax is the BEST band in KC! They played at my wedding back in March and I still have people telling me how great they were. The dance floor was jam packed the entire night. They played the best songs and were interactive with the crowd. My sister is getting married in June and there was not a question that Lost Wax would play at her wedding. They are so amazing and fun. If you need a band to play great songs, put on a great show and and bring the fun then Lost Wax is your band!” – Danielle H.

“Ok. This band is seriously amazing. I’ve never seen such a seamless, high energy performance at this level without paying admission. Lost Wax played my wedding and absolutely killed it. They custom designed a playlist for my needs and not one part of it fell flat. Every member is so personable and accommodating. There is a reason they are the most sought after band in the Kansas City area. I was blown away, the hype is real. They are worth every penny and more. Everyone was asking me who they were. Seriously one of the best decisions I have ever made.” – Jess S.

“Lost Wax played at my wedding recently, and they made the reception. My husband and I heard from many guests, “this is the best wedding band I’ve ever heard.“ They even went above and beyond for us and played at the ceremony and led a “second line parade“ for the guests as we all walked from the ceremony to the reception. 10/10 recommend.” – Libbie A.

“Must see this band!! It was amazing, they have something to offer for everyone. So much talent would definitely see them again!!” – Ana C.

“Saw their show live and enjoyed every minute of it! High energy from all. They covered everything so there’s something for everybody in their show. Check them out. You won’t be disappointed!” – Anthony C.

“Saw lost wax live! Amazing group of musicians who really put on a show that will make you dance the night away from today’s hits to throw backs! They can do it all” – Sabrina O.
