WEDDINGS

NEVER STOP LOVING, NEVER STOP DANCING

“I would only hope that every event would be blessed with your professionalism, talent and amazing ability to play and say the right thing at exactly the right time. You deserve the honors you have received, and more.”

Pugh/Perry, Shenannigans, Tacoma

EVERY DETAIL, EVERY TIME.

Our service covers all the unique elements of wedding celebrations: the ceremony, the cocktail/social hour, the dinner hour, the emcee announcements and toasts, and of course, the dancing. The music begins at the ceremony with a classic piano/flute ensemble, then livens up the cocktail-hour atmosphere with our jazz pianist, duo, or the full band. An elegant dining atmosphere flows smoothly along with Sinatra-Era swing and classics, played sensitively enough to allow for easy table conversation. Finally, the unforgettable climax takes off with our 80-90 minute, non-stop-segue sets of irresistible dance favorites where Michael’s crisp, relentless pacing keeps the floor packed all night long. How do we do it?

First, all bands play time-honored hits and we are no exception. You’ll party to sophisticated covers of swing, Motown rock, funk, soul, disco, reggae, calypso, and salsa ranging from Frank Sinatra to The Stones, Temptations, Isley Bros., Earth Wind & Fire, Michael Jackson, Journey, ACDC, Prince, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, etc.

 

Here’s how our reputation for “widest variety of music” is defined:

We move the audience forward, deep into modern hip-hop, R&B, rap and pop genres of Jay-Z, LMFAO, Usher, Beyoncé, Far East Movement, Ke$ha, TuPac, Katy Perry, Eminem, Bobby Brown, Nelly, FloRida, Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown, Outkast, Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, T.Pain, Taio Cruz, etc. Fact is, no other band has this much range to offer. And the jaw-dropping, “how can these guys do all this” reaction compels dancers to party on and on and on.

Special song requests? Of course, always.

Custom break-song mixes? Absolutely. Classy

MC service? Naturally!

Traditional cultural accents? Definitely. Jewish, Italian, Greek, Portuguese, Latin, German, and Norwegian songs can all be part of the performance!


By bringing you all of this, the Michael Benson Band completely eliminates the need for a dj. Treat yourself to a website tour and discover why this band is truly in a class of our own. Hire us, and you’ll delight yourself with the impeccable service for which we are recognized.
