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”).

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!

Moments we'll remember for a lifetime!
Charlie and Stevie played at the welcome party for our wedding weekend and they were a HIT! Everyone kept asking me how I found them and where they could find more of their music. They kept the party moving throughout the night and even performed a few special songs that made for some very special moments with family that will be remembered forever! From the first time I saw them play in Sayulita, I knew I wanted them to be part of our wedding weekend in some way, and they delivered! I always make it a point to see them when I'm in town and already can't wait to be back. Fan for life! Ps Their original music is fantastic, too!

Killed it for Our Wedding Reception!
We asked for a specific song to be played for our first dance. Not only did they learn it well, they played it acoustically!! We also had a freak medical accident happen at the reception that caused us to halt the music. So instead of the band ending until our initial agreed upon time, they played out the time that was missed. Charlie can freaking jam too! 10/10 highly recommended.

Everything we dreamed of and more!
From the time we reached out to book with Charlie and the band, the responsiveness and clear communication was unparalleled. Charlie set clear expectations and offered great feedback to help us plan for the wedding ceremony and reception. Charlie's musical taste and music selection absolutely blew us away. He provided a wide range of songs to select from as well as songs they were willing to learn depending on our preference. Charlie provided acoustic ceremony music for us and knocked it out of the park. The reception performance was nothing short of perfect. Charlie and the band played all of our favorite predetermined songs and then some. The entire wedding party was blown away and were raving about how well the band did. We consider the band to be an integral part of any wedding celebration and could not be more pleased with what they delivered on our special day. I give them a 10/10 review and would unequivocally recommend Charlie Higgins and the Sunshine Band to play at any event. Still can't comprehend how much we enjoyed having them. Cheers!

Top notch band
We hired the band to play at our 12/17/22 wedding reception in Puerto Vallarta. We couldn’t be happier with their performance. Hiring them was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They totally made the atmosphere of our reception, and it was one heck of a party. They had everyone , of all ages, out on the dance floor. Everyone was blown away, and couldn’t believe we were able to find such an amazing local band! My only regret is not having them play longer. Charlie was very flexible, responsive, and easy to work with. Would highly recommend to anyone considering them for a private event.

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.
