Far and away

Posted on: February 16th, 2020 by Mbenson

The CEO of Emerald City Trapeze Arts approached the stage at end of our recent show there, feeling the urge to say “we’ve heard every type of band here for the past 3 years and you are far and away the best of all of them”.  We appreciated the compliment.

A favorite of most people who know them

Posted on: April 16th, 2019 by Mbenson

Michael will provide you with all you’re looking for! You’ll be thrilled with him and his band. He played at all 3 of our sons’ weddings and has been a huge hit. The Columbia Tower Club had their annual “Board of Governors Ball” a March 16th and we’ve had very positive feedback from all ages. I cannot say enough great things about the band. Very prompt, quick set up & tear down, incredible for cocktail, dinner hour and then they pump it up for dancing.  They are incredibly versatile in their music and know the latest and greatest hits for the younger generation. You’ll hear horns, sax, and great singing. They are a favorite of most people I know that know of them.
