Charlie Higgins & Sunset Station Wedding Band in Sayulita - Driven by our passion for live music, we approach every wedding or event in Sayulita with one goal in mind: to create a memorable, magical experience for everyone involved. We always consult with our clients at the start of the booking process regarding their musical preferences, guest profile and type of event they have in mind in order to develop the perfect song list and dynamic to match the mood, whether it’s a raucous party or mellow cocktail hour.

Our ever-evolving song list includes familiar classics and hidden gems by artists such as Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Van Morrison, Elvis Presley, Sam Cooke, Chuck Berry, Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, Aretha Franklin, Willie Nelson, Gram Parsons, Chris Stapleton, Bonnie Raitt, Amy Winehouse, Neil Young, Wilco, Grateful Dead, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. We also have a growing list of original songs in that vein that we can perform if you want live music in Punta Mita, Sayulita or Puerto Vallarta for your wedding. 

Charlie Higgins & Sunset Station Live Music in Sayulita will provide you with a list of songs in our repertoire, and if you have any special requests you can just let us know. We can play just about anything, though we try to set ourselves apart from those cookie-cutter “wedding bands” that just read top 40 charts off an iPad. We want your event to feel intimate and special, where your guests pack the dance floor, singing along to fan favorites like “Tennessee Whiskey” or “Me and Julio Down By the School Yard”. We want you to have that warm, fuzzy feeling that only a kickass live band in Sayulita can provide!

Want to hear us beforehand? We perform every Sunday at a beautiful beachside venue in Sayulita called Frente al Punto, where parents, kids and dogs gather to listen to the band amidst the backdrop of the Pacific Ocean at sunset. You can also visit our Website, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and TikTok profiles (just search “Charlie Higgins & Sunset Station”).

Ultimate Wedding Band
We reached out to Charlie a few months before our wedding after seeing a few videos of the band. Charlie's was responsive and clear in his communication throughout the entire process. First, we provided him with a general vibe of what we wanted and he helped us decide between the quartet and quintet which ended up being super helpful for the type of music we wanted. We sent Charlie a set list 3-4 weeks before the wedding and the band was able to create a flow with our song list that worked perfectly. From the first note, all of our guests were captured by the quality and energy of the band. They had the entire wedding on the dance floor from early on until the end of their 2nd set. We had numerous guests asking us how we found this awesome band and telling us "this was the most fun wedding band they had ever heard". If you are a true lover of music (classic rock, blues, rock & roll, etc.) then Charlie & Sunset Station are your top choice. We could not recommend the band more!

YES - don't think twice! Amazing people and artists
There is no wonder everyone has given 5-star reviews all around. Charlie and the band are all incredible. They played for our Welcome Party at Frente al Punto and everyone said the same thing to us during/after: "I don't know how the actual Wedding is going to top this!"

They absolutely rocked and the second-most popular comment was "wow they have such range in music". This is true. The songs they already know are more than enough and part of what makes them extra special is that they learned a few new songs for us, which they CRUSHED!

Truly, our Welcome Party with Charlie and the band could have very well been our wedding party.

Even if you don't have the luxury of listening to them in-person before you book them, I can promise you they bring such awesome energy and are so, so talented.

I have very pick music friends and they all had the best night of the weekend***

Thank you guys again!

Unbelievable Performance! Unbelievable People!
We have just come back from Bucerias where we celebrated a 60th Birthday. Charlie Higgins and his band performed for our small private party and I cannot say enough about them. They are so good, so much fun and the kindest people you will ever meet. Their music is amazing and they went over and above in helping make our small party a success. Everyone at the party continue to talk about that day because of them and will talk about this for a long time. We know we will be back and know we will hire them again and again. They are that good!!! Thank you Charlie, Stevie and the band for making our celebration the best day ever!! Advice for all of you out there needing a not look any further...Charlie Higgins and the Sunset Station is where its at!!!!

Don’t wait. HIRE THEM!!!
We hired Charlie Higgins and Sunset Station to play at our wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception last weekend. The music was the highlight of our wedding, no questions asked. My guests were obsessed with Charlie & Stevie and they complimented us on our band choice all night. Charlie & Stevie had everyone dancing until the very last minute and the horns were incredible (definitely worth every penny if you’re debating getting them). I communicated with Charlie exclusively throughout the planning process and he was incredibly patient and easy to work with, even when I was not the best at responding to emails. They learned 3 songs for our first dances which was really the cherry on top of an incredible experience. 10/10 would use them again and again for future events. Do yourself a favor and hire Charlie Higgins and Sunset Station!!!

The most incredible band!
We hired Charlie Higgins and Sunset Station to play at our wedding last weekend and this was easily one of the best decisions we made! Charlie personalized the performance to fit exactly the vision my partner and I were going for. They were so flexible and played a sentimental song for us as our first dance song and even brought in a fiddle player from Mexico City to make the performance that much more incredible. All of our wedding guests were on the dance floor all night long and all agreed that this was their favorite part of the night! Would highly recommend hiring them, they made our wedding night one to remember!

Most AMAZING Band in Sayulita Area!
Charlie Higgins & Sunset Station helped create the wedding of our dreams in Lo De Marcos at Hacienda Antigua. They are incredibly professional, organized, communicative and not to mention incredibly talented at what they do. They tailored our wedding exactly to how we envisioned and even allowed us to pick songs for them to learn prior to our wedding. Not only are they talented but they are an amazing group of people who instantly feel like friends when you meet them. They had no problem getting the dance floor going and continuing through out the evening! They are an absolute must when having a wedding or special event in this area!

Best band in the world!!!!
Hands down the best band in Puerto Vallarta, and also one of the best bands we’ve ever heard! My husband and I listen to their music every night. We had them play for our wedding at Barceló, and they absolutely made our wedding night. All of our guests couldn’t stop talking about them being the best wedding band, and all of the guests at the resort have been thanking us for making their night as well! They aren’t your typical band that parties (though they make the party!) Charlie and his band are professional, beyond easy to communicate with quickly, show up very early to make sure everything is perfect and the sound is spot on - super important for a beach wedding/waves. Can’t say enough! They are the best and the nicest people ever on top of it!

Charlie Higgins & Sunset Station
Bio Please mention SayulitaLife
Lead by Charlie Higgins (USA) on guitar and lead vocals, with Stevie Ward (USA) on backing vocals, Xavier Olazabal (Mexico) on drums and Manu Arreola (Mexico) on bass, the band known locally as Sunset Station has become a perennial favorite among Sayulita locals, expats and visitors thanks to their energetic, passionate live performances. Performing a mix of Americana, soul, blues and roots rock, the band draws inspiration from the classic songs of Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and other architects of American popular music to develop an inviting, playful sound that is steeped in tradition yet imbued with the same youthful energy that has kept this music sounding fresh for generations.
