    Bio:

    The Electric Company was founded in 2001 with Ray Hesson and Megan Wheatley on the lead vocals, having two lead singers makes the band more versatile and able to cover more genres. Both Megan and Ray have been performing professionally for 25+ Years and haven’t had a break since. Over the past 6 years this duo performed together with another local group named Right Foot Red and recently this band of brothers (Ray, Ben, and Mike Hesson) plus 2 (Megan Wheatley and Eric Bouchard) decided that it’s time to reunite. The chemistry of this group is amazing with their tight harmonies and incredible musicianship and there’s no substitute for experience. Weddings, private and corporate events are all they do now and the feedback has been fantastic, you can’t go wrong hiring The Electric Company.

    After 6 long years the Electric Company is back entertaining weddings. Originally they were represented by Sam Hill bands based in Richmond VA but now that the band leader (Michael Hesson) is also the owner of Hesson Entertainment they are now exclusively booked right here. The Electric Company Band brings tremendous energy to the dance floor by playing timeless classics as well as newer music. You will have the best of both worlds by having a professional DJ there to provide additional music. Check out some of their past reviews! (See reviews below videos)

    Andy-

    Sorry for the delay...just got back from the honeymoon last night.
    I do want to tell you that the Electric Company band was awesome! They were totally accommodating, learned a couple songs for us, were easy to work with, etc. They kept the music at a good level, considering it was a small room. Everyone raved about them, and had such a good time. The dance floor was packed the whole time. I know that one of my friends who was there definitely passed along the name to a couple of her friends who are engaged/about to be engaged.

    Thanks a lot,
    Mike

    Andy,

    I attended a community concert in the Lansdowne area on Sunday and The Electric Company played there. They were such a fun band and very diverse, connecting with all ages with their multi-genre capabilities. They gave my husband your company name as far as booking and so I thought I’d share the kudos with you.

    I have them in mind for future events - we have many that would be a great fit for the band. From weddings to club parties, they would be a huge hit!

    Cheers,

    Jennifer Breaux Blosser

    Hi Mike:

    Thanks for the email. We just got back from our honeymoon. Electric Company was great. They had the dance floor packed by the end of the first song, I've never seen that happen before! They were great to work with from beginning to end, as was your whole company. Easily the best experience we had with any of our vendors, thank you! We will definitely be recommending Sam Hill and Electric Company to our friends getting married in the area.

    Best,
    Tara

    We had a great time at the wedding and really enjoyed Electric Company! They were really easy to work with and learned a couple of songs for us for the slow dances which was really nice.

    Thanks for setting everything up!

    Hey Andrew:

    They were excellent. Very professsional sounding and had the entire reception pumping from start to finish. Great song selection that got everyone involved from my little cousins to the really old people. Plus they let me play a couple tunes with them, so that was fun. They were a big hit!

    Hi andy!

    The electric company band was a ton of fun. i have gotten so many compliments on what great music they played. wedding receptions are usually full of music from the 60's & 70's so our friends loved hearing the 80's music.

    I hope that you and your family are having a wonderful holiday! thanks so much for your help. if ever asked, i'll pass your name and information along to other brides.

    Andy,

    The newlyweds are still on their honeymoon in Belize, but I want to let you know that the Electric Company was a big hit at our daughter’s wedding reception. Thank you so much for recommending them to us; they were exactly what we were looking for. Even the photographers commented on how much fun it was to take pictures of the guest dancing and enjoying the music so much. We can’t wait to watch the video. The entire band was so nice and so accommodating. I would definitely recommend this band for others that are looking for a wedding/party band. I have another child coming along, you never know, you might be hearing from me again sometime in the future

    Thanks, Linda Webb

    Electric Company:

    Mike and I are just back from our rock star style honeymoon in the Bahamas and we came home to many, many pictures of our fantastic reception. We just wanted to thank you all again. My five brothers and sisters and their spouses danced all night...and it is documented. My favorites include my sister and I singing our heads off to "Sweet Home Alabama". My friends have joked in awe of the Def Leppard....truly you all were the hit of the party. Thank you for being so professional and for delivering such wonderful sets. Our only reget is that there wasn't two hours more.

    Many, many thanks. We have passed your name along more than once.

    Subject: Re: Electric Company

    Hi Che, I have been meaning to email you. The Electric Company was absolutely awesome!! I knew when they started with Michael Jackson's Billy Jean that we were in for a fun night - and they did not disappoint after that! The crowd loved them and I don't think there was ever less than 50 people on the dance floor the entire night (and we only had 100 guests total!). The reception was supposed to end at midnight but at about 11:30 when no one had left and the dance floor was still packed, we asked them to continue playing for another hour.

    Our guests had only the best things to say about the Electric Company (and are still talking about them 2 weeks later). I appreciated not only their energy and perfect song selection, but they were extremely professional and Mike Hesson demonstrated much patience for my many calls and emails leading up to the wedding!

    I will highly recommend The Electric Company and would be delighted to act as a reference for them and Sam Hill anytime.

    Thank you also for all of your assistance and guidance during our selection process. You certainly led us to the right band!

    Thank you,
    Courtney

    Hi Andy:

    Thank you for the follow up. I just got back from my honeymoon yesterday and I was going to email you but you beat me to it. Electric Company was simply fantastic. They did such a wonderful job, were very nice and easy to work with, and got everyone dancing. Many of my guests commented on how good the music was and how fun all the band members were. Kevin and I greatly enjoyed having them play at our wedding. I want to also thank you for all your help, you were by far my favorite vendor because you were always helpful and reliable. I have already recommended Sam Hill Entertainment and Electric Company to a girl I know who will be getting married next spring. Feel free to use me as a reference as I would be glad to let anyone know the wonderful job you did. I loved my wedding - thank you for helping me with it...
