    The band was very good and entertaining! We will definitely book The Cold Hard Truth again. Rossi Theodore - Chi Omega Social Chair - University of Alabama

    The Cold Hard Truth are the most professional and talented band we have ever hired for an event. We hope to have them again! Paul Alexander - WALX Radio - Valley Grande, AL

    The Cold Hard Truth has become a local favorite around the Auburn bar and fraternity scene. Their on stage performance is only rivaled by how great they are to work with. From the moment they got there to the wee hours they left at, they had a constant smile on their faces. From their multi-instrumental lead singer to the incredible light show and sound, The Cold Hard Truth gave a great performance, keeping the crowd up and dancing the whole time as they rocked out. I constantly recommend CHT to anyone looking to book a high energy performance that comes at a great value. Matthew Kreston - KA Social Chair- Auburn University

    The Cold Hard Truth was perfect for our event. They played a great mix of songs and really got the party going while still being appropriate for our independent school environment. Taylor Strunk - Bayside Academy Fundraiser - Daphne, AL

    The entire group was a pleasure to work with! We would love to have them back for an event in the future. Robert Gunn - Aquapalooza 2011 - Lake Martin, AL

    We had an absolute blast at our wedding reception and had so many compliments on The Cold Hard Truth! Thanks for everything! Austin & Rachel Wilbanks - Wedding - Ridgeland, MS
