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!

Hot dance band – unforgettable

Posted on: January 7th, 2019 by Mbenson

Michael was fantastic to work with and I really appreciated them playing for our wedding Nov.17, 2018. People just danced the night away and even danced during the cocktail hour after the ceremony. If you want a truly professional band to play your wedding this is it. At the time of hire we had a little sticker shock but would not hesitate to hire them again as they provide the full service and are so professional. The lead singer in Michael’s absence (Darelle Holden) used to sing back up for names you would know!
