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.

The word from the kitchen

Posted on: March 2nd, 2019 by Mbenson

The kitchen staff at Pacific Tower Seattle reported dancing in the kitchens on our Feb. 23, 2019 performance. At tear-down time they came out to say “You guys are THE most incredible live band we’ve ever heard here”.  They didn’t throw the party, but they got all the fun just working for it!

Weather advisory

Posted on: July 6th, 2018 by Mbenson

Our musical family certifies:  Come rain or come shine, The MBB will roll the party, provided we have cover as we had here at Suncadia Resort, CleElum, Washington. But never bet on sunny skies in the Pacific northwest. Ever. Not even in June, July or August.

Best Of 2018

Posted on: June 20th, 2018 by Mbenson

The Michael Benson Band is honored to receive Seattle Bride Magazine’s Best Of 2018 award for “Best Live Band For The Reception” for the 14th year. Much appreciation for our fans’ generous support!  Now it’s onward with our best work and services for 2018 and beyond.  

“20 somethings”

Posted on: May 18th, 2018 by Mbenson

It’s amazing when we perform how consistently a 20-something venue staff walks up to the stage when we’re done with something like, ”Hey guys, you seriously rocked it. What an incredible job!” Or something like that. Now these kids don’t HAVE to bother saying it but they do, one hundred percent. But couples who wonder how we’d “connect” with a mainly 20-something crowd are missing the boat.  As always, the connection is made.

Fabulous First Flight w/Darelle

Posted on: May 1st, 2018 by Mbenson

Our new six-piece took wing on April 21st at Seattle’s The Sunset Club with songstress Darelle Holden co-leading vocals with me.  It couldn’t have been a smoother flight and the audience roared their approval. Here’s to many good times ahead!
