Mike and his band were AWESOME! Everyone had a great time. He definitely knows how to get a crowd going and make sure it's a great experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND AND WILL BOOK HIM AGAIN! Review by Tim S. Reviewed on April 23, 2022 From Munster, IN

We had an absolutely amazing time. All my guests raved about MDO and are now trying to figure out what event they can plan next to hire them! The talent is out of this world, song selection was amazing, and they kept guests dancing the entire night. The band even helped surprise our guest of honor. I’d definitely recommend Mike and his team to those who want to “wow” their guests and give them a party to remember. We can’t wait to have them again in the future! Reviewed on March 13, 2022 Review by Natalie S. From Chicago Ridge IL

I have been to many weddings and Mike’s band is without question one of the best if not the best bands I’ve ever heard.

Wedding Reception Reviewed on August 15, 2020 From Omena, MI Review by Teddy M.

I was having a hard time finding the right band for our wedding - went through recommendations and companies that help you find one. I then came upon this website, and found Mike D's band. It was exactly what we were looking for! From our first call, Mike was so accommodating to come up to Northern Michigan from Chicago, and helped us figure out the right size band. We asked him to learn songs of different genres for when I walked down the aisle, when we exited the ceremony and first dances. All were AMAZING. Their energy kept people on the dance floor all night 🙂 Book Mike - Thank you! Birthday Party (Adult) Reviewed on August 23, 2020 Review by Frances Q. From Chicago, IL

Mike was so wonderful to work with. He and his band brought so much fun and joy to my mom's birthday. Even in social distancing, she was able to have a lot of fun and everyone in her neighborhood loved having some live music on a Sunday afternoon. Highly recommend.

Review by Tami F. FROM BEACH PARK, IL ON 2/15/2020

I hired the Mike Dangeroux Orchestra to sing just one song at my wedding, immediately following the ceremony. Mike was very patient with me as I had a certain way I wanted it sung and he had three different singers make a video until I found one I liked. When they showed up I was literally blown away. They looked so professional and Peter's singing was exactly what I had envisioned - he was perfect! An added bonus - they wore red (it was a Valentine's Day wedding). I cannot say enough about this band, and Mike personally. If you have the chance to book them, do it! Review by Susan D. FROM OAK LAWN, IL ON 2/14/2020

All of our guests for the evening had nothing but positive things to say about the band. This was a dance event and they kept our guests on the floor dancing. Would definitely hire them again. Very professional!
Review by Danielle R. from Merrillville, IN on 1/26/2020

Mike Dangeroux Orchestra absolutely killed it! Our guests were all wowed and couldn’t stop talking about how talented they were. They surprised us by learning a song by a band who’s show we met at and it was super special. This is not a typical “wedding band,” these are artists. They made our reception so much fun! We will remember them forever! Review by Maureen B. FROM OAK PARK, IL ON 10/5/2019

Mike was AWESOME!!!! Excellent guitarist, very talented, professional, and personable. The entire band was so nice and made our event special! Hire them if you want a GREAT experience!
Review by Mike S. FROM HUNTLEY, IL ON 9/28/2019
The real deal!!! We hired them for our wedding this summer at the Chicago History Museum, and they were amazing!!! They kept the energy high all night long, and our guests are still raving about them! By far the best for our wedding!!!!! They are real musicians, not a not a big wedding corporate band. Furthermore, Mike is the utmost professional, and responded to emails promptly throughout the entire process. Review by Teresa P. FROM CHICAGO, IL ON 07/27/2019

We hired Mike Dangeroux to play during an Realtor Open House. WOW! It was a wonderful experience, Mike responded promptly, accommodating and the group is extremely talented, well versatile in all types of music.

A hearty thank you for playing at our daughter's wedding in Madison on April 13th. You had everything - soul, variety, vitality, emotion . . . Clearly the whole gang from age 3 and on up enjoyed your music. We received many, many compliments. You engaged our crowd from beginning to end. You made the "first dances" sweet and wonderful. Thank you! Review by Julia and Wayne Reschke FROM MADISON, WI ON 4/13/19

The whole band was professional and easy to work with. Would hire them again. They really know how to get the crowd going!

Mike Dangeroux Gigmasters' Top Rock Band did a fantastic job performing for our seniors during our Halloween Party! They were very professional and the residents loved that the band were getting them involved with requesting music. Thank you for making my residents' day!
Review by Maria I. FROM RIVERSIDE, IL ON 10/31/2018
What a fantastic performance Mike and his band put on for the wedding. Mike is a gifted guitar player and his band has talented musicians and vocalists that love to perform. Their energy was off the charts, they were on the dance floor mixing it up with our guests and the dance floor was packed all night. They are true professionals, great to work with from booking through the wedding. I highly recommend them .
Review by David G. FROM IOWA CITY, IA ON 10/6/2018
They were absolutely great. All of our wedding guess raved about them. They were professional and very friendly. They came out on the dance floor and interacted with our guests. Our venue has added them to their highly recommended list.
Review by Rhonda H. FROM HINSDALE, IL ON 9/29/2018
Mike and the band made our wedding. We are so glad we hired them!. They were incredibly accommodating, from learning songs (in Spanish, no less) for our ceremony music, to performing back-up while my brother played a song during the reception, to working with us for a Spanish language DJ set to play during the band's breaks . Their energy was high and they kept the dance floor packed, even though the wedding was kind of small (less than 100 people). Our guests LOVED them, and could not stop talking about them. Thank you guys all so much, we're so grateful and happy that you were apart of our day.
Review by Bridget W. FROM BERRIEN SPRINGS, MI ON 8/26/2018
Mike Dangeroux's band was the best way to spoil ourselves on our wedding day!!!! Their performance was stunning. Honestly, it was dream-like. In addition to playing a number of songs we requested, they just really knew how to read and work the crowd. This was not an easy task considering the crowd included everyone from elderly midwestern family members to our friend groups from India and the US. The energy in the room was at the absolute highest for the full four hours.
Review by Erin R. FROM CHAMPAIGN, IL ON 8/4/2018
Mike and his entire band are amazing. We booked them to play our wedding reception and we were not disappointed. We asked them to learn some songs from our favorite band (Phish) and they threw them down with the heat. Every person at our party was impressed and how great they were. The dance floor was packed until the very last song. We would book these guys again in a heartbeat.

I thoroughly enjoyed this band for our event at UIC. Thank you SO much Mike Dangeroux!
Review by Marina B. FROM CHICAGO, IL ON 5/9/2018
We didn’t have space for the full band so they accommodated with a 2 piece acoustic and vocals set up. They were super professional, simple to deal with and had great personalities. Not only did they sound great but they kept it exciting and engaging with the crowd. Their music list was expansive covering all types of music. The party was amazing and they really helped make that happen. Now we know, and will be calling them again for the next party. Review by Ramon O. FROM PARK RIDGE, IL ON 5/5/2018
The Mike Dangeroux band was by far the best private event band I've seen. We had them at my wife's 40th birthday and they rocked the place! The musicians are so talented that nothing seems forced or artificial. They focused mainly on our 50s-70s and blues requests and everybody at the party was dancing! All of the musicians were smiling, pleasant, entertaining and professional. They obviously enjoy what they do. We are in Milwaukee and I had jitters about getting a Chicago band to make the trip, but it was so worth it. The venue owners told me they felt like they were in a Chicago blues club. It was a pleasure doing business with Mike. A lifetime of memories! Review by Emil H. FROM SAINT FRANCIS, WI ON 1/12/2018
Mike Dangeroux Gigmasters' Top Rock Band did an incredible job at our wedding. They kept the dance floor packed all night long and everyone wanted to know where we found them. Upon submitting my request to gigmasters.com, Mike immediately contacted me to introduce himself. He was prompt with all communication and was great to work with. They even adapted our first dance to play it live! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to keep their party rocking all night long!
Review by Nicholas L. FROM LAKE GENEVA, WI ON 9/16/2017
This band is worth every penny! They rocked our world. On time. Ready to play. Completely professional on level of evaluation. Never have I felt such satisfaction in the hiring of musicians as I have with this band. They took reggae from traditional to jazz fusion and back again! The highlight of the evening besides the actual wedding itself was the hour and a half set Mike played for us. We were thoroughly enthralled and mesmerized during the entire performance Thank you Mike and gigmasters for coming thru in the clutch!

Review by shannon o. FROM ROSELAND, IN ON 5/6/2017
5 stars all around for Mike and the Band. They were awesome for us! We booked them to do 1 hour cocktail and 5 hour reception. They nailed it- our guests did not stop dancing and wanted more at the end. Easy to work with, on time, professional and fun. Learned the songs we requested- pretty sure they even took a few requests from guests towards the end of the evening. At one point one of our guests was on stage playing along, tambourine in hand. Sure sign of a good time. If you have an upcoming event- book Mike Dangerous. Serious bang for your buck!
Review by Jill I. FROM GENEVA, IL ON 5/27/2017
Mike and the band were excellent! We have hired them before and will hire them again for our next event. They are very accommodating and sound amazing.
Review by Tina M. FROM BRISTOL, WI ON 10/15/2016
Mike and his band are the real deal. They are outstanding musicians, extremely professional, and able to adapt to any type of audience or venue. At our recent wedding party, they played chill R&B for the first half of the night and then cut it loose with some great dance tunes as the party got hopping. It was perfectly appropriate for the occasion and exactly what I asked them to do. Their rendition of Marvin Gaye's "You're All I Need to Get By" for our first dance was spectacular. I would hire The Mike Dangerous Band again in a minute. They were a very important part of making our party a huge success.
Review by Curt M. FROM WILLOWBROOK, IL ON 9/24/2016
Having Mike Dangeroux's Band perform was one was the highlights of our wedding! They had everyone dancing and having a good time on the dance floor and they were extremely professional throughout their performance. I really appreciate that they were able to provide additional emcee services for the wedding and Mike replied with any questions or concerns I had in a very timely manner via email. My husband and I both agree that one of the most memorable moments of the wedding was when they were able to perform the Horah (chair/circle dance popular at Jewish weddings) live!
Review by Sherry W. FROM SOUTH HAVEN, MI ON 8/13/2016
This band is extremely talented. The singers were great, the bassist was crazy good and Mike brought his inner Hendrix for us to be amazed by. They played enthusiastically outside on a very muggy night. I would highly recommend them.
Review by Curt T. FROM DANVILLE, IL ON 7/23/2016
Stop looking because your answer has arrived! As an event planner you always want to ensure that your client is beyond happy. Well, Mike and his band delivered just that not to just my client but to her guests! To see guests singing out loud, dancing in their chairs while enjoying brunch and interacting with the band was more than what I could have expected out of any band. I would highly recommend them again and you will not be disappointed.
Review by Grace K. FROM RIVER FOREST, IL ON 6/12/2016

Mike Dangeroux band was great! they interacted with everyone, and they were a ton of fun. My guests asked me to be sure to give them their number. Would definitely hire then again.

They were very musically talented and the singing was outstanding! They interacted in a great way with the crowd, they took requests, they were very flexible, and they were a lot of fun! Really outstanding band and I would definitely book them again!! -Kristen D, Chicago, IL on 1/16/2016
Anyone looking for the perfect band for any event should book these guys. I cannot rate them high enough!! I had some specific requests and they absolutely nailed it!

- Barbara R Birthday Party (Adult) in Wolcottville, IN on 4/4/2015
This band is awesome! They are able to play a wide variety of songs as well as play requests by the audience. Their vocals and instrumentals are amazing and they sound just like the artists that they cover. I booked these guys last minute and they were able to come to the event on time, play an incredible set, and were very professional and entertaining. I still have people asking who those guys were that played that night. Every person at the event was more than impressed. Best band I have heard in years, hands down.

If I could go higher than a 5 on talent I would! The band was ammmmmmmmazing, great job feeling the crowd and getting everyone involved and really becoming the rhythm of the party. I hired Mike and the band for a raggae 30th bday party and these guys were outstanding; they mixed it up here and there with non raggae beats which truly impressed me because their talents much reach much further than what I had requested but these guys were awesome, showed up extra early to setup and make sure everything was perfect, which I have never experienced before (usually DJs show up max 30 mins early) and my only regret is I booked a 3 hour gig, should have done 5 stars! Thx Guys!

- Delilah I. Corporate Function in Chicago, IL on 12/05/2014
I'm pretty sure Mike Dangeroux and his band made our wedding reception! For months after and even still now, we get told that our reception was the best and most fun our guests have ever attended. It is in no doubt in part because of the talent and entertainment delivered from the stage. Dora's voice is amazing and Mike's talent on the guitar is thrilling. The dance floor was packed all night and elder guests who normally would have left earlier were found hanging around the edge of tent watching the entertainment with smiles on their faces. There is just something about live music from a band like this; it grabs you and makes you FEEL the celebration.
- Brooke S. Wedding Reception in Mattawan, MI on 07/07/2012

After driving all the way to Michigan for the gig, they were willing to let us use their equipment during dinner, make announcements as we needed, and they even let a few guests accompany them! I will always cherish my memory of drumming to Sweet Home Chicago with such a talented band. They did a great job of getting all the guests - spanning three generations - into the music. Everyone was dancing and singing and having a wonderful time. I would not hesitate to recommend them! True professionals."

They played everything we wanted. The best!" - Abigail R. ,Chicago IL , 9/22/12
"Great communication from start to finish (above and beyond expectation). Mike played our marina party with his reggae band "the tropics" it was a sunrise party and they were good sports and showed up on time (7a.m.) and were very professional and fun. They really had the talent and look of a great reggae band. They really worked the crowd with fun sing along songs. They had a great mix of music and played all our requests. Highly recommend Mike and the tropics. I know they will be back to the Chain O' lakes very soon to entertain us again! Thanks guys! We had a blast and all our guest had nothing but good things to say about you! John, Gary and Brian " - John B., Chicago IL , 8/11/12
"There are two types of performers. Those who play music, and those who know how to play for a party and entertain. Mike is the second type, not only did he and his band know a variety of songs and play some great hits, they knew how to work with audience members and put on a great show. Will book him and his team again for future concerts, and would give a very strong recommendation for anyone looking for a star performer for their show." - Varun G. ,Westmont IL , 6/2/12
I am from South Florida and hired Mike over the internet for my mother's surprise birthday party in Chicago. I was concerned about hiring a band "sight unseen" so to speak but had no other options. Mike was always prompt in answering emails, called and confirmed a few days before the party. Needless to say, Mike Dangeroux and his band were GREAT! Everyone loved them and a number of people were asking me for their contact information. They seemed to gauge the energy of the party to find just the right songs to play to "get the party started." The only setback is that it all seemed to end too soon. In the future, I will have to hire them for 6 instead of 3 hours. -- Mario Theodore, Chicago, IL, 3/31/2012
Mike Dangeroux performed for our first fund raising event. After they played for 30 minutes, I started receiving compliments from those in attendance that the band was great, and questions about where they were from and how I found them. We were so happy with the band, that after the show, we booked them to perform for us at our fund raising event next year. -- Ronald Klein, Merrimac, WI, 2/25/2012
Mike Dangeroux was great! Everyone enjoyed the band, we had guests grabbing the microphone and signing so they were very accomodating and we were so happy we picked them. His response to our emails and calls was very prompt and helpful in planning our event. I would definitely recommend them! -- Sonja Sadowski, Chicago, IL, 4/30/2011
perfect. every guest was blown away. it was an incredible party and performance. the band kept people dancing and was interactive. thanks so much! -- Wes Block, Madison, WI, 8/13/2011
Mike got the party started! My friends and family were on the dancefloor from the minute they swallowed their last bite of cake until the reception ended (including some family who I did not think would even get on the dancefloor!). As many others have commented, Mike is extremely responsive by phone and email, and he had great suggestions for me when I was unsure of some decisions for the timeline of the evening. The whole band was very talented and maintained high energy throughout their performance. I would definitely recommend them! -- Jennifer Shrear, Chicago, IL, 6/25/2011
Mike was professional, responded to email/phone promptly, was easy to work with, and he was flexible working with the demands of our event (we needed two sets of music - steel drum/beach for the first set and rock/dance music for the second). He configured the band one way for the first set, and he swapped in another musician for the second set. Most importantly, the crowd loved the band in both sets! The band has high quality musicians and sound. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat. -- Anne Gould, Glen Ellyn, IL, 3/12/2011
We got a lot of positive feedback from our guests about how great it was to have live music, and about how wonderful the band was. They were able to figure out what made our crowd dance and kept the party going. They were friendly and accommodating. We really enjoyed working with them. -- William Mooney, Skokie, IL, 4/30/2011

If you are serious about having a good time at your event, BOOK THIS BAND. They played our December 11th wedding and I cannnot say enough great things about Mike Dangeroux. We have lot of crazy rock and roll fans in our family and they are hard to please, but our guests cannot stop talking about how great the music was! Mike played a mix of rock and roll, reggae, and motown songs that pleased everyone, from teens to grandmas - the dance floor was absolutely packed all night. Mike was easy to contact and very professional and independent when setting up and tearing down - the music at our wedding was absolutely flawless! He learned several songs for us too! -- Kerry Lanigan, Chicago, IL, 12/11/2010
This band is bar none the best band that I have ever experienced. I can't even begin to describe how good they were....you have to see it and hear it to believe it. We booked Mike for our reception and we had a wide range of age groups from 20's to 70's and they rocked it! They were interactive and had everyone on the dance floor.....the guests are still talking about how good they were. This band made the night a total success! Thanks to Mike and his crew....you guys are a class act and highly recommended! -- Jessica Fuller, Quincy, IL, 11/27/2010
Amazing performers!!! Everyone loved the band. My dad, who has never danced in his life, was even out on the dance floor having a ball. One of our vendors commented that he had never seen so many people on the dance floor for such a long period of time! Seriously, great band, great performance... I only wish our wedding was longer!! -- Hannah Alphs, Chicago, IL, 9/25/2010
Mike was fantastic! He was responsive and great to work with. My party enjoyed the music very much. -- Sarah Kotva, Chicago, IL, 7/26/2010
Mike,s band was terrific for our event. The performers were very curtious and professional. Unfortunately I was not able to be there for the finale, however I was told by several people that it was great. -- Cindy Howard, Braidwood, IL, 7/16/2010
We were so very pleased with the Mike Dangeroux band! They helped to make our event one of the most memorable yet amongst our friends in Des Moines. The guests are still asking how they can book Mike Dangeroux for future events! The music and vocals were outstanding! I will recommend Mike Dangeroux to anyone. -- Toni Clark, Des Moines, IA, 6/11/2010
Mike and the band were phenomenal! We had the a fabulous time dancing at our reception, as did all of our guests. Mike was nothing but a reasonable, accommodating professional from the time we put a bid in to book the gig through the time he and the band packed up their instruments at the end of the night. -- Erin Scanlon, Lisle, IL, 6/4/2010
I planned my Chicago wedding from Los Angeles. I wasn't able to go hear bands play or take the time to get demos All of the band's demos are online and accessible, and I truly could not have picked a greater band for my wedding. ALL of our guests danced from the first dance until the very end of the night. My mom's fiance wants to fly them all out to Vegas to play at his wedding. They were very professional, the singers were amazingly talented, and the musicians were fantastic. I'm a performer by trade, so my expectations and standards are high, and I couldn't have been more impressed. They are great people who know how to rock out and have a good time. -- Christina Valo, Oak Brook, IL, 5/15/2010
Fun and vibrant performance. Very approachable and kind. Very professional. Would definitely hire again! Best wishes! -- Sylvia Kucinska De Ocampo, Chicago, IL, 3/20/2010
I have nothing but good things to say about Mike. He created a vibrant atmosphere for our event. Some of the comments from our students was, "This finally feels like a real college campus" People are asking me when I'm going to have them back. Thanks for all youjr hlep in making this event a success. -- Darrell Lofton, Milwaukee, WI, 12/7/2009
Mike and the group were punctual, knew what they were doing and were very easy to work with. They are extremely versatile and very talented. Would definitely recommend the group for any type of performance. -- Jo Avent, Chicago, IL, 11/14/2009
Everyone had a great time! Terrific playlist!! Did not disappoint. -- Nicole Tyler, Berwyn, IL, 10/10/2009
Wow, wow, and wow! This band was excellent! They had everyone at the reception on the dance floor! We had a pretty diverse crowd - young and old - everyone enjoyed Mike and his band! We are still getting many compliments from all of the guests. It was a great mix of music (everyone loved the polka!) Everyone got a kick out of watching Mike play his guitar with his tongue! They were just perfect! You can't go wrong. (Plus, they were all very friendly) -- Joy Lazouskas, Chicago, IL, 8/29/2009
Mike was more gracious and accommodating than I could have hoped for. He responded quickly to my calls and e-mails, he took the time to help me decide what kind of music to offer, and which band members to use. All of my guests had an amazing time at my party, even though it was cold outside, because Mike kept them engaged. Many of them asked for his business card and plan to hire him in the future. I will definitely hire him again,myself. I am very grateful to him. -- Carolyn Williams, Chicago, IL, 8/30/2009
Kick aXX! Highly recommend - very nice people - very talented. Rave reviews from my wedding guests. -- Amy Greime, Chicago, IL, 8/22/2009
WOW! Mike and all were great! They really made our reception special... there wasn't a song they couldn't play and they in many cases sounded better that the orignal artists. They got the party really stoked up and even had my grandparents out there cutting a rug. It was awesome to see Mike play the guitar with his mouth, how cool! We would definately hire them again. -- Lanise Peavy, Madison, WI, 7/25/2009
Mike was wonderful to work with. However, due to weather issues we mutually agreed to reschedule for another date, so I cannot assess his talent. I ranked it at a 5 since I needed a rating to complete the survey. I am anxious to reschedule. -- Cairy Brown, Glen Ellyn, IL, 7/4/2009
Mike Dangeroux was a perfect match for our event. Our zoo was hosting its first concert and we were unsure of what to expect. The band arrived on time, set up quickly and efficiently, started on time, and played solidly for 1.5 hours. They were tuned into our audience and did a great job getting the crowd involved. They sounded wonderful--the volume was perfect and the musicians seemed to genuinely enjoy themselves. Mike was a breeze to work with. We would definitely book them again. -- Molly Holman, Wheaton, IL, 6/26/2009
Mike Dangeroux, very professional. Returned phone calls and E-mails quickly. Very willing to work around our budget. Very talented. Made our wedding reception very lively. He even let my 10 year old daughter sing a song with the band. I got nothing but good comments from everybody that was there. Awesome job!! Thanks Mike. -- Beth Lund, Mokena, IL, 6/14/2009
When we decided we wanted a band rather than a DJ for our wedding reception, it was because we didn't just want music, we wanted to entertain our guests with a live show. Mike and the band did that and more! They were so professional and gracious and really set the tone for the latter part of our reception. They were very accommodating to song suggestions or requests, and they kept a crowd out on the dance floor the whole time! We felt like the entire playlist was customized just for us. On top of that -- we were wholly impressed at the level of talent of each member of the group. Amazing! Thanks for a great time! -- Anne Rodgers, Madison, WI, 5/16/2009
Mike and band were awesome. I could not of asked for anything better. it seemed as if every guest asked who he was and how great he was. I would hire Mike to play any event I have. My wife and I have been trying to come up with "excuse" to have another party just to hear him again. -- Chad Overton, Terre Haute, IN, 4/18/2009
Mike Dangeroux and his band were awesome. We had a 6 person band with a male and female vocalist for out wedding and they sounded amazing. From jazzy background dinner music, to rocking out Skynard, they were tight, professional, and a lot of fun. I would absolutley recommend them, especially over your typical "wedding orchestra" that sounds like every other wedding you've been to. -- Jim Herbst, Chicago, IL, 3/28/2009

Mike and his band were AWESOME. I was nervous at first booking someone I never seen before. He was super polite and fun. Mike also was good with communication and follow through. The band was loved by everyone at our school. Parents are calling me and emailing about them because the kids loved them and so did the parents. I can not say enough about this band. I am going to promote them for another school function. I would also go and see them if they ever played around my area again!! -- Jacki Kochanski, Park Ridge, IL, 2/20/2009
Amazing! I was worried booking with out hearing them live, but the minute they started playing any worries disappeared. They did everything we asked, even if it was a last minute request. You will not be disappointed with this band, they were truly a "10" and our guess loved every minute of it! We have been receiving calls week telling us how wonderful the party was, especially the band! -- Lory Matheson, Racine, WI, 1/17/2009
i am not casually clicking 5's. this band was what made our wedding. they were so talented, fun and just nice people to deal with on every level. all our friends and family were blown away and we loved the song selection - they were very attuned to what we were about. they gave us an encore that brought down the house because people were having so much fun. i'd recommend them to anyone but i don't have to because all my friend already love them after the wedding. please share these comments with Mike. thanks so much. -- Beth Jacobs, Evanston, IL, 11/22/2008
Mike and Raw Dawg gave and outstanding performance and was a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend this group and will have them back again. -- Rich Fluhr, East Dubuque, IL, 8/31/2008
I hired Mike and his band to play at our 30-year wedding anniversary party for about 80 people, with ages ranging from children to grandparents. We had a pig roast, so we asked Mike to play a lot of Jimmy Buffet, Caribbean (steel drum), Reggae, and such. Everybody was thrilled with the music - we did a limbo, people sang along, it was great. He even threw in a Sinatra song on request. I was very pleased with the band's professionalism, friendly attitude and talent. Numerous guests asked me "where did you ever find these guys?" I will hire him again for another party, and many of my guests also plan to hire him. Great party band. -- Richard Meeusen, Delafield, WI, 8/30/2008
