Here is an actual email we recieved from a client on Oct 16, 2008 regarding our performance just two weeks before:
I just wanted to tell you thanks & let you know how much I appreciate your band! Since we've returned to the "real world", I have received countless complements on the music -- everyone has told me how great you guys were & how much they enjoyed the music & dancing. Even my grandmother has been gushing to all her friends... and by the way, the fact that you got an 80 yr old to dance to YMCA shows you're doing one hell of a job!! And thanks also for being flexible with the schedule -- I know we ended up doing everything out of order (and late), but it was great that you could work around us. Overall, I couldn't have asked for anything better -- I had a fabulous wedding day & you guys made the reception wonderful!!

"They were extremely professional and accommodating. They played the most entertaining music all night. Most wonderful band to have for our wedding. We couldn't have been happier."
- Melissa W.
in Birmingham, AL
"Meet the Next did an excellent job. The Summit where the reception was held while a spectacular view and a sophisticated setting, also represents a difficult and challenging venue: Dancing requires transferring guest from the dining area to another room. Ken did an admiral job in leading the transition, flow of the wedding and bringing guess to the dance floor.
Ken's professionalism, quality of work and dedication to the event was superb. "
- Bill P.
in Birmingham, AL
"Prior to the wedding when we were in the planning stages they responded promptly to questions. They provided a great planning document to provide information regarding a play list, directions and requests form the band.
They did a wonderful job at our daughter's wedding reception. They had a good sound and struck a nice balance between energetic dance music and slower more romantic slow dance numbers. The music was just what we expected. Our guests enjoyed the music. The bride and groom were very pleased. We would recommend them highly."
