"Everyone says to have a good wedding all you need is good food, booze, and GOOD MUSIC...HIRE THEM NOW!!!! I found Mainstreet Soul on The Knot soon after my (now) husband and I were engaged and were beginning to plan our wedding. Hiring Maintreet Soul was the best, and easiest decision of the whole wedding. We first heard Mainstreet Soul play at a local festival. When I first heard them I got chills, and I of course cried (what bride isn't emotional...right!?!). My husband and I hired them on the spot. The band plays timeless classics as well as new hits (adding a lot of flare with their AMAZING horn section!) sure to please your entire crowd. Mainstreet Soul is very flexible and attentive to your wishes for your big day. In addition, they put your mind at ease because they are able to read your crowd and play accordingly-they are true entertainers! They will even come out on the dance floor and get everyone on their feet! After our wedding we received ENDLESS compliments on the band...ENDLESS. Even two of my friends who are getting married next year quickly called them up and hired them! Lastly, many engaged couples weigh the options of hiring a band or DJ. Let me tell you...bands are making a come-back because they create such a unique and intimate environment for your wedding. Mainstreet Soul was even willing to have two of their instrumentalists play during cocktail hour...our guests LOVED that!"

"I cannot rave enough about Mainstreet Soul! Having a live band was our #1 priority for our wedding, and we were very nervous about booking a group sight unseen. BEST LEAP OF FAITH EVER! We are still getting praise from our friends and family about how amazing they were--literally every guest gushed about them, including a lot of die hard, Detroit-born Motown fans. Not only was the music and performance out of this world, but the entire band was a dream to work with. Our timeline went totally haywire and they were able to calmly and supportively get us back on track so we could enjoy their talents to the max--I, the bride, did not leave the dance floor all night (tip to all you future brides out there: don't worry about mingling, just hire Mainstreet Soul and enjoy EVERY SECOND!"
"Mainstreet Soul far and away exceeded every expectation at our daughter's wedding and our expectations were high! Our guests have been RAVING about the band; 2 of my friends stated that their husbands, who never dance at weddings, were out on the dance floor dancing the night away! The entire band worked their magic all night and when Danielle told us it was their last song all of us shouted for more. It was as if they had cast a spell which was only broken when the lights were turned on and the night was over. No one understood why we had to go all the way to Detroit for a band until they heard them play! Thank you Mainstreet Soul for an unforgettable evening!"
- Ilene N.
"Wow where do I even begin?! Mainstreet Soul was phenomenal from beginning to end. From the first experience having dinner with Jim (the lead) getting to know one another, to the very last song- our experience was so positive! Not only did they play amazing songs, but they did a great job as the MC of the wedding announcing speeches, dances, etc. One of my favorite parts was when some of the band members brought their instruments out on the dance floor and played and danced with my guests. Truly elevated the energy and fun in the room. I HIGHLY recommend having them play at your wedding :)"
- Allison K.
"The first time we saw Mainstreet Soul play, we decided that night we had to have them at our wedding one day and we are so happy we made that decision because they are hands down the best out there! They are amazing at reading the crowd and catering to all ages and they did just that at our wedding. They had everyone on the dance floor all night (which is exactly what we wanted)! Almost two months later and people are still talking about the AMAZING band we had at our wedding and how they usually never stay until the end but the band was so good they didn't want to leave! Jim is so easy to work with and was so accommodating even our requests were a little difficult. We are beyond thankful we had them at our wedding, as they made it a night all our friends and family will definitely never forget!"
- Megan B.
"Um... HECK YEAH!!!!! If you want to get the party started, hire this band ASAP. My husband's uncle has had 2 hip replacement surgeries and has a very hard time walking... thanks to Mainstreet Soul, even HE got on the dance floor and was singing into his cane! Our wedding was split; half of the wedding was 30-35 years old and the other half was 60-70 years old. This band catered to everyone!! High energy and very entertaining! I want to have another event just so we can hire them again! Amazing performance!"
- Sara I.
"First off, this band is AMAZING!! I knew I wanted a band the minute my now husband and I started planning a wedding. I had no recommendations to go on so I turned to the internet. I felt very discouraged and unsure of what I was finding initially until I stumbled upon Mainstreet Soul. I was immediately impressed by their song selection, videos, and the previous reviews people had left for them. We saw that they were playing at a local bar the next weekend and made plans to go see them. In the meantime, we contacted the band's manager, Kathryn, and she was extremely helpful and easy to work with. When we saw the band we were blown away by their talent and ability to get a crowd moving. You could tell that they loved what they were doing and it was amazing to see a ten piece band with horns - they're hard to find! We immediately booked them for our wedding. Leading up to the wedding Jim, the lead guy, was very easy to work with. He met with us a couple of times to make sure that all of our needs were met and that we were all on the same page. They learned our wedding song and did a phenomenal job with it the day of. During and after the reception we got tons of compliments from our guests on our band selection. Everyone loved them. A few even wanted cards to remember who they were. I can confidently say that we picked the best band that we could for our wedding day and they exceeded our expectations!! We can't wait to go hear them again!!"
- Meghan P.
"If you want to be guaranteed a terrific wedding reception, choose Mainstreet Soul for your band. We spent a lot of time looking for a great band. When we came across Mainstreet Soul by visiting their website and then talking at length with their manager, we were pretty certain that we found the right band. However, being pretty certain wasn't good enough so we took a trip to Detroit to hear them in person. Let me tell you about that experience. The band was going to be performing at a small bar on a Saturday night. We arrived early to meet the band members, who are all very personable. Right before the performance was to start, it was time for their sound check. Less then 20 seconds into that sound check we knew for certain that this was the great band that we were looking for. That's right, even in an acoustically challenged venue, they sounded amazing just warming up. Of course the actual performance was even better. And the performance at my daughter's wedding was even better than that. You may be wondering if you can rely on my opinion. After all, I only have one daughter and this is the only wedding that we have ever made. Well you should know that many staff members at the wedding venue who have been employed there for a long time came up to me to tell me that this is the best sounding band that has ever performed at this hotel, The InterContinental Cleveland. I strongly suggest that you visit the band's website and compare their sound to other bands that you are considering. You will definitely hear a difference. The band has two great vocalist and four horns that set them apart from other bands. In addition to all ten great performers, the band's leader, Jim is great to work with. We had such a terrific experience with Mainstreet Soul and I am certain that if you choose to use them for your wedding, you will have a terrific experience as well"
- Robert N.
"I knew I wanted Mainstreet Soul to play at my wedding before I was even engaged. As a musician myself, I can attest to the fact that they are incredibly talented. In addition, their showmanship and ability to get the crowd off their feet was great. I had many compliments from our guests! There is nothing like having an amazing live band. It brings a such a celebratory vibe to any party...beats having a DJ any day! Mainstreet Soul is highly recommended!"
- Rachel L.
"The experience we had with Mainstreet soul was INCREDIBLE!!!!!! The excellent experience started with their band manager, Julie, who is sweet as can be and made our experience so easy. We were then directed to the band director, Jim, who is meticulous and truly cares about every detail!! There wasn't a name pronounced wrong, there wasn't a detail missed and they made sure music was constant playing and keeping the guests engaged! The band members are fantastic and their lead singer Danielle is TOP NOTCH!!!!! They played up until the last minute and all the guests got up and danced all night!!!! I highly, highly, highly recommend them for your wedding!! If we are having another event that requires a band, they will be the first band we call!!! We are so lucky we chose Mainstreet Soul, they were a pivotal part to making this a magical night for my husband and I!!!!!!!!!!"
- Kasse P.
"Mainstreet Soul was absolutely incredible for our wedding. Not only was the music amazing and our guests burned the floor from dancing so much, but we really appreciated the service and thoughtfulness from Jim and team. We were planning our wedding from out of town and Jim set up time to meet with us during a short fly-in. They had everything set for us and even played a beautiful, jazzy version of our first-dance song. Would highly, highly, highly recommend this band and hope I get to see them again sometime soon!"
- Evan B.
"I was married in April and Mainstreet soul was our band and they were AWESOME!!! Seriously. they far exceeded our expectations. Everyone had so much fun. It was the best live performance by a band that I can remember seeing. Totally worth every penny. 6 months later and our guests are still raving about how great the band was. People who never dance were out on the dance floor. Mainstreet soul really gets the crowd into it. Their sound is spot on. All of them are extremely talented musicians. Thanks again to Mainstreet soul for making our reception an incredible experience."
- The Knot Review
"Mainstreet Soul was amazing! We had guests of all ages dancing the night away, everyone raved about them. Prior to the wedding we worked with Jim in regards to details, songs, etc. He was so helpful and patience with me! He worked with me in regards to various song choices as well as learning new songs and putting spins on old songs. We HIGHLY recommend this band!"
- Megan W.
"Cannot say enough about Mainstreet Soul and how much we loved having them at our wedding. Our number one goal was to get people out of their seats and keep them there all night, and these guys did exactly that. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, they could not have been more helpful or accessible - always available to hop on the phone at a moment's notice. They took all of our requests to heart and truly made the night even more special than we imagined. If you want a band that will get the party started and keep it going all night, I think I speak for all of our guests when I say that Mainstreet Soul will do just that."
- Matt S.
"Mainstreet Soul played at my daughter's wedding last April. They were incredible! The dance floor was full from the time they started, until the evenings end. We had people dancing from age 14 to 87. I received phone calls for several days following the wedding from guests that were complimenting the band. I would highly recommend this band for your wedding!"
- Frank K.

"We hired Mainstreet Soul to play at a gala event connected to our conference and they were nothing short of outstanding. As a true testament of their talent, the dance floor was packed the entire evening. Our 650 guests were from 17 countries and 32 states gave wonderful reviews of the high energy and very professional band."
- Lee K.
"Definitely a highlight of our wedding! Our guests had so much fun dancing the night away with this fun dynamic band! Couldn't have been better."
- Lisa K.
"My girlfriend(at the time) and I were at a wedding watching Mainstreet Soul perform. We both looked at each other halfway into the reception and said "we are having them at our wedding, I don't care what it takes but we will have them at our wedding, no doubt about it". One year later just about to the date we did, and we were not disappointed. They were Amazing! The Mainstreet Soul band is friendly and fun both on and off the stage, they make the planning process almost non-existent because it's so simple and easy because they are that good! They know what people like, what they want and how to give them a great show. Starting with Julie who manages the bands bookings and Jim the band leader, everyone is A+! My wife and I wanted a specific song for our first dance that isn't traditional, and they not only learned the song and played it for us as a first time performance, they knocked it out of the park and we couldn't have been more pleased! The band doesn't need you to give them a playlist, because they play the crowd and the night so well. Literally they play IN the crowd too. Someone told me that 3 things are remembered by the guests at every wedding 1) The Bride 2) The Food 3) The Entertainment and they couldn't have been more accurate. I've been married for 2 weeks now and the only 3 things I get mentioned are 1) Your wife looked amazing 2) The Food was great 3) Where in the heck did you find that band!?!?! Mainstreet Soul will keep your guests around longer because they are enjoying themselves and that's what the Bride and Groom want, people there all night having fun! Thank You Mainstreet Soul for making our wedding that much better, we couldn't be happier with wanting to have you and everything you did to not only please but exceed our expectations and impress the heck out of all of us! Thank You, Thank You and Thank You!!!"
- Steve G.
"My husband and I highly recommend Mainstreet Soul for your wedding band! Mainstreet Soul is easy to work with, professional, and extremely talented!!! We have been married for almost a year and our guests are still taking about the "amazing band" that played during our reception. Our dance floor was full the entire night and most of our guests were still ready to dance the night away when the venue turned on the lights!!!! Our wedding reception was unforgettable and we cannot thank Mainstreet Soul enough for being part of our Day!!!"
- Cherie C.
"MainStreet Soul knocked it out of the park at our wedding! Not only were they easy to work with pre-wedding, but they had the dance floor packed from start to finish. We've gotten tons of compliments on their performance, especially how they worked the crowd and occasionally came down and played throughout the dance floor. We couldn't have asked for more!"
- Katie G.
"My husband and I were very adamant about having live music at our wedding. Hiring Mainstreet Soul was the best decision we made! They were easy to work with, met all of our requests, and had our dance floor FULL the entire night! Friends and family keep raving about how amazing the music was. We love these guys!"
- Erica T.
"The band is great! Jim was extremely professional and friendly. He was thorough in helping us prepare for our big event and took extra care to pay attention to the details. Danielle is an amazing performer and the band was willing to learn a song just for us (You won't regretasking to hear "I Wanna Dance with Somebody"). We wish we could do it all over again. Definitely book Mainstreet Soul for your event!"
- Ann W.
"Your band was absolutely fabulous ~ everyone danced all night and we are still getting comments about how fantastic the band was. Thank you, thank you. You are simply the best!"
- Sheila G.
"My son and daughter-in-law hired Mainstreet Soul to play at their wedding. They were very professional and accommodating and played everything that was requested. Their enthusiasm and high energy level were very contagious, which had our guests up and dancing all night. I highly recommend Mainstreet Soul to play at your special event."
- Marieluise S.
"We hired Mainstreet Soul for our wedding and we could not have been happier with their performance! Jim and Carrie were great; they were very professional and worked with us in choosing the artists and music we wanted to hear. They really made an effort to get to know us as a couple and did everything to accommodate our requests. Our guests were on the dance floor all night and were raving about the performance for weeks after the event! If you are looking for a really fun and authentic Motown experience, we definitely recommend Main Street Soul; a major highlight of our wedding!"
- Mallory G.
"We contracted with Mainstreet Soul to provide music services for our daughter's wedding at Bay Harbor Village. We cannot say enough about how amazing our experience with Mainstreet Soul was -- from the initial contact with their booking agent straight through to the very last dance of the reception. We had them provide ceremony music, cocktail hour background jazz and, of course, the reception dance music. Professional, enthusiastic, personable, engaging, efficient, and over-the-top FUN! Our guests spanned several generations and absolutely everyone enjoyed the music because their repertoire is so extensive! Three weeks later and people are STILL complimenting us on the music! Mainstreet Soul knows how to get a crowd totally engaged in the celebration with iconic songs everyone knows and love to sing along to, sax and trumpet players who come onto the dance floor and move through the crowd as they belt out the sound, and MC-ing the event to make announcements and ensure that everything flows as planned. They learned special songs for the father/bride and mother/groom dances, and honored requests for what to play (and what NOT to play). Jim, the band's lead, placed personal phone calls to the bride & groom months prior to the wedding to learn their vision and preferences for the music components of the celebration. He checked in with them part way through the reception to inquire if everything was going as expected and if they needed the band to do anything differently -- a sign that his focus is clearly on meeting the expectations of clients. Mainstreet Soul not only met expectations but exceeded them by a long shot! You cannot go wrong with hiring Mainstreet Soul for your event or celebration. Thank you, Mainstreet Soul, for a job so very well done! Mainstreet Soul, 5 PLUS Stars!"
"My husband and I got married over a week ago and people are still messaging us about how great our wedding was, wanting the name of the band, and how amazing they were! My husband and I were searching for bands, came across Mainstreet Soul on the knot and decided to YouTube them. We listening to one of their clips and all our families said book them immediately. We didn't even bother searching for any other band. Spoke to Julie, said our wedding date was open and we booked them! We went to see them at MGM casino and were amazed. They got everyone up dancing. My family and husband's family continued to watched them when they went to downtown northville and Plymouth! Meeting with Jim and his wife, we knew we working with great, down to earth people. They are very personable but take their job very seriously! The day of the wedding, everyone was on their feet dancing. People that we know who never dance, were out on the dance floor! They play anything from oldies to select current songs and are just so FUN. One of my favorite moments of the night was when I looked around and saw members of the band with their saxophones playing while all our guests were on the dance floor. Such a fun moment.The vocals and instrumental talent are out of this world. We are still getting compliments. We cannot wait to continue to follow and watch them when they play live. They made our wedding night and forever grateful their were our band! We would highly recommend this band to anyone."
- Elizabeth M.
"All I have to say is WOW! Mainstreet Soul was our main entertainment for our biggest fundraiser- the Hurley Benefit Ball. This is a 425 person black tie annual black tie gala. We have had DJs and other bands in the past and we have never had such positive feedback as we did for this year's Ball. We are still getting compliments about the band but as the saying goes "actions speaks louder than words" and our guests definitely showed that they had a great time! There was dancing from beginning to end, the songs varied and always got people on the dance floor, the sound was extremely clear, the members were very friendly and engaging with the guests. I wish there were 10 stars because every single band member deserves every single of one them. Thank you Mainstreet Soul- we are already talking about hiring you for next year's event!"
"This has got to be the best horn band I've seen in years. Great vocals and such great talent all around! I recently attended a wedding and they were the entertainment. Wow!! What a great job!! The dance floor was packed all night!!"
- Tom N.
"There isn't a better foot-stomping, head-bobbin, outright good time that beats a night with Mainstreet Soul - heck, they're even my ringtone!!"
- Patrick O
"During the wedding, they played songs both old and new, mixing them together in the right order to make sure that the party never stopped. After the wedding, the band was by far the thing that people complemented the most. I would recommend this band to any friend or family member who wants to make sure that their event is a great time. There is no better choice in Detroit, in Michigan, or even in the whole country. Mainstreet Soul will be your new favorite band!"
- Kirsten Bolitho & Jonathan Skrzynski
"So much fun! The band kept everyone on their feet all night! Played exactly the music we wanted to hear and then some. Very happy with our decision to go with Mainstreet Soul!"
- Andrea B.
"Without a doubt...this group is our first pick of who's playing anywhere remotely close to where my friends and I live. TOTALY AMAZING!!! If you've never seen Mainstreet Soul.....you MUST make a point of treating your ears as well as your Soul!!!...Promise...they will NOT disappoint!!"
- Valerie O.
"This band is the most talented group of musicians I have ever seen. I never visit Michigan without coming to one of their shows. The energy is contagious, the vocalists are hilarious, and the musicians never miss a beat. They keep it tight every night. If you want to hear the best live music in Detroit, or dare I say in the state/country/world/galaxy come out and hang with Mainstreet Soul! I promise you won't regret it!"
- Andrea C.
"I've seen dozens and dozens of bands and this was without a doubt the most incredible band I have ever seen or heard. If you are reading this right now and you haven't seen these guys play live yet; you owe it to yourself to go see them. The experience was like walking into a movie. They have not only a fantastic sound but they are great performers in general. I really wish I didn't live so far away so I can go see them all the time.
Thank you Mainstreet Soul for a night I'll never forget!"
- Jonathan T.
"Just saw "Mainstreet Soul" for the first time. Fabulous band to listen and dance to. I recommend you see them when you get a chance! Love the female lead singer Danielle, and the male lead is awesome too!"
- Chris K.
"Always a tight band and a well oiled machine! You will not find a better band on this side of the Mississippi! Excellent song list with an AMAZING horn section! They truly are 'your new favorite band'!!"
- Carrie W.
"Mainstreet Soul was the absolute best at my wedding! They were professional and kept the party happening from well before the first note all the way until the very last note that was played. They were very organized in making sure that they had all of the information that they needed to be ready on time, to ensure that the toasts, speeches and the MC’ing went smoothly, played appropriate music over their PA during cocktail hour and during dinner and were just thoroughly accommodating throughout the night. And when it was the band's turn, they kicked it into high gear and packed the dance floor and the party was on!!! If you’re looking for a band that can PLAY music from Motown to Earth, Wind & Fire to Chicago to Bruno Mars, Mainstreet Soul is the band that you NEED to have at your wedding or private event. I can’t recommend them enough!!!"
"Mainstreet Soul provided the post-dinner entertainment for our wedding in September, and they were spectacular! The reason I referred to them as post-dinner entertainment is because they are way more than just a band. They were so engaging with our guests, played great music, and sounded spectacular! As soon as dinner was over and the music started, our guests couldn't leave the dance floor. For anyone that is looking for a high-energy, crowd pleasing group, Mainstreet Soul surely won't disappoint."
- Caitlyn W.
"I wish that there were additional stars that I could award Mainstreet Soul for their performance on our wedding day. From the initial moment of contact through the completion of their final set, each member of the band not only carried them self very professionally and demonstrated great musical talent, but each member of the group was also wonderfully warm and engaging as a person."
- Raeyanna B.
"If you are looking for the best Detroit-area band for your special event, do not hesitate to book Mainstreet Soul.

My ringtone has never sounded better!"
- Janice G.
"My long distance Canadian BF from British Columbia came to the Detroit area for the first time late 2013. We planned a night out with friends so he could meet everyone. Mainstreet Soul was the entertainment for the night. Although he protested over and over about not being a dancer.... he danced all night. Great talented band with great dance music. We professed our love for each other on the dance floor that night. Today - we're happily married. Can't wait to see you guys again."
- Noreen F.

"HIGHLY RECOMMENDED........We had Mainstreet Soul play at my husband's 50th birthday party. Our guests are still talking about them. Everyone I spoke with after the party commented how much they loved the band. I hope to have another party JUST so that we can have Mainstreet Soul play. All the band members were fun and professional. My husband describes his birthday party as a "magical night" and Mainstreet Soul had a major part in making it a "magical night". Thank you!"
"Mainstreet Soul was EXACTLY what we wanted -- and then some. We can't even begin to count the number of compliments on the band's playing we received from guests and how much fun everyone had on the dance floor. The band is clearly full of excellent musicians.
Both you and Mainstreet Soul elevated our special day to become everything we had imagined. They're not just a band, they're all entertainers! We're fans for LIFE!"
- Craig & Katy H.
"When we set out to begin planning our wedding, there was one thing that we knew from the beginning and that was that we needed to have a live band. We spent over 4 months researching, meeting with, and seeing bands looking for the best fit for what we were looking for. When we found Mainstreet Soul, we knew that they were the band for us.
We drove 1 ½ hours to see them for the first time and it was worth the trip. From the first song to the last we could tell that this was not your typical wedding band. This was a group of individuals that love playing music and have fun doing so. Their setlist was greatly mixed with different types of music while always keeping people on the dance floor. With this band having 10 members, the sound that they are able to create is amazing. We didn’t know that we wanted a male and female lead singer but after seeing them we knew it was a must. Jim, the band leader, took time during a break to speak with us about the band and how the wedding process worked with them as the band. That first experience was so great that we put our deposit down the next day. After the first time we saw them, we saw them 3 different times prior to the wedding, each time taking family members with us so they could fall in love with them as much as we did. Each experience being better than the last and the songs added to their song list continued to prove that they knew their sound and could find the right music to showcase each individual in the band.
Prior to the wedding, we met with Jim and Carrie to go over all key items and timeline for our wedding day. The band acts as MC for the night, introducing all major events during the night so it was important that they had all key information. This meeting was great and they were able to answer all questions quickly, allowing us to focus on other things and feel confident that all items for the band were taken care of.
The day of was one of the greatest parties we have ever been a part of and Mainstreet Soul is one of the main reasons. We cannot thank each and every one of the band members for the memories that they created for our wedding. We would tell everyone prior to the wedding “just wait until you hear the band.” They didn’t disappoint. We couldn’t keep count of how many times we had family and friends come up to us and say “this band is amazing.” They were able to keep the dance floor packed all night with the setlist that they created for the night. We continued to look around and couldn’t believe the members of each of our families they were able to get on the dance floor and keep them there for song after song. The interaction with the crowd during parts of the songs, the attention that was paid to us during the evening, and the focus being on ensuring that they entertained each and every person at our wedding.
If you are looking to book a DJ for your wedding, I would strongly suggest to go and see Mainstreet Soul prior to doing so. If but for nothing else to have a great night, but it will probably convince you that this is what you want for your big day. They do come at a higher price point, but they will turn your wedding into a day that you and your guests will never forget. We have been to hundreds of live concerts ranging different genres of music all over the U.S. The show they put on ... is now our favorite."
- Carlos and Alyssa Pizaña
"If you’re looking for a band that will make your special occasion even more memorable, then Mainstreet Soul is who you need to call! We’ve had this group of talented musicians play at our annual holiday fundraiser for the past seven years, and the people who have attended continue to rave about the amazing entertainment!! You’ll dance the night away and wish that it didn’t have to end! Without a doubt, Mainstreet Soul will make your party an event to remember!!!"
“If you’re looking for a group of crackerjack musicians who are as fun as they are professional, Mainstreet Soul is for you. I worked with them extensively on a film shoot and they were terrific, arranging the music expertly and performing with exuberance. Whether you’re making a movie, tv show or just need a great party band, they’re the best.”
- Doug Stone, screenwriter, “Salvation Boulevard”
"You and your bandmates have crafted something special. I have heard hundreds of bands get the technical stuff down, but they never got the “soul vaccination”. All of you cats certainly got the maximum dose. Now you are the Doctors giving it to the audience. Thank you for all the hard work you put in to get it right. Please pass this on to the rest of the band. Have Fun!"
- James B.
"Mainstreet Soul isn't just "another" wedding band. There are a HIGHLY skilled group of musicians who happen to use their superpowers in the form of pleasing your wedding guests (and yourself) beyond belief. They only took one break during their 4 hour set and even played an expected encore song that we loved. The biggest problem was that we didn't have a big enough dance floor ;)"

“We're in post-production of their recent gig at The Blue Goose Inn (St. Clair Shores, MI). I HIGHLY recommend this band if you a) like great music (Chicago, Steely Dan, Rick James, Rufus, Santana, Van Morrison, King Floyd - and many, many more), and b) love to hear a KILLER horn and rhythm section, and c) love to have a really good time while on the town. Seriously, this band KNOWS great music and always delivers - and then some. Check them out!”
