Rye, New York September 2022
From the FOB at Shenorck Shore Club: “Everything about Michael and his band is professional and absolutely first-rate. They are all top-of-the-game musicians who can play in every genre. Michael is a fantastic vocalist, and a pitch-perfect emcee to boot. From my guests I’ve heard nothing but praise for him and his band, who have entertained at my two daughters’ weddings. Michael also makes the logistical details easy. He does a lot of the work for you. There are many, many good reasons that reviews of the band are filled with superlatives. If I had another daughter who was getting married, my first call would be to Michael, to save the date.”

Top class, top notch
This band made the first big party for all of our guests since pre-COVID… the party of a lifetime! We put their flexibility to the test with COVID shifts over two years, and they rose to the occasion every time with grace. Then they nailed it! This band is better than a dream come true, they literally played the crowd as if they knew every song that could bring out the happy in each and every person: dancing, smiling, and loving on each other!
