Jagged Edge

We Didn't Ruin That Wedding!

12/9/2011 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jagged Edge
A Jagged Edge fan claims his favorite band stood him up at the altar last month ... when they failed to perform at his wedding -- but the group says he's simply pointing the finger at the wrong guys.

The groom at the center of the controversy is Victor Diaz ... who claims he wanted to surprise his fiancee by getting JE to perform their famous "Let's Get Married" song at their wedding on November 19.  Diaz claims he reached an agreement with the band's reps ... and shelled out $10k for the deposit and other costs -- but the band never showed up.

But ... the band says they were never aware of the gig -- telling TMZ Diaz must have been dealing with someone who falsely posed as a representative of the band.

Diaz isn't buyin' it ... and believes the band decided to flake on the wedding when they got an offer for a higher paying gig on the same weekend.

Diaz says he's preparing to sue Jagged Edge, the record label and JE's management company -- telling TMZ, "They humiliated me and cost my wife her dream."

A rep for Jagged Edge tells us, "They are very heartbroken and sad that [Victor's] wedding got destroyed due someone using our name without permission."

The rep adds, "As far as court goes ... if the guy does decide to sue, good luck, because we didn’t agree to anything and he will see he had a forgery contract."

Firt of all if them not howing up destroyed their wedding then there is no hope for their marriage. I thought a wedding was about sharing your love for one another.

For the commenter who said he should have talked to the band, that is not how these things work. You sign contracts with management for the talent. If these guys did flake for a higher paying job, they should be held financially liable. And, why all the hate for the guy who tried to do a nice thing for his bride?

I actually think they might be telling the truth. A while ago, a friend of mine was planning her own wedding and, like so many over the top brides, wanted to get her favorite band to play. They were an indie band that was local, but pretty popular around where we are, so she thought it would be easy. She got some contact info off the internet and made all the arrangements. She paid up front, which wasn't odd. Well, the day before her wedding, they were supposed to come and do a "rehearsal" but no one showed up. A couple months later and lots of phone calls and emails, long story short, she'd never even been in contact with their management. It was just some guy that would put false info out on the net and hope someone fell for it. He'd falsely rep these bands, have people sign contracts, take their money and split. It happens A LOT more than people know really. The REAL band in this case felt so bad for her that they invited her to a show, free, with backstage passes and all that jazz. Technically she spent 12 grand for that since that's how much she was ripped off for. She filed charges, but the guy was obviously using an alias, so they never found him. It's nice what he was trying to do for his wife, but with stuff like this, you really, REALLY have to know who you're talking to and what's going on. It's easy to get scammed.

Seems to me the classy and PR savy thing to do would be to make it up to him. Play a six month anniversary gig for them or something.

$10K for a freaking deposit and then more costs??? I wouldn't give a darn if they sang in her lap, NO GROUP is worth that kind of money for a wedding!

Sounds like Diaz had a few coins so why would he negotiate himself instead of the wedding planner or attorney? Even if they didn't have one, you do not fork over $10K without some serious validation.

Maybe this group of handsome citizens would like to help find the scammer - the group's rep is damaged as well.

I guess Diaz should trash his MENSA application.

Why get these talentless hacks? For ten grand total they could have gotten David Cassidy or Barry Williams (Greg Brady). Now, what new couple wouldnt want "I think I love you" or "You've Got to be in Love" sang at their wedding?
