"Jeremy Shrader and his band did a wonderful job. The music was perfect and we had a lot of complements on them. I have been in 7 weddings and heard a lot of bands, but these guys were by far the best. We had a number of guests ask about the band and comment on how they would enjoy to use them for future events. "

"I am so glad that we booked Jeremy and his group to perform at our client event. We were looking for an upbeat group with an old school flair that would keep the tempo of the event lively. We definitely found that in Jeremy and his group. We were very impressed with the group's professionalism and talents and would definitely recommend to others.
Thanks again! "

"Jeremy was FANTASTIC. He is incredibly professional, while still being kind and laid back at the same time. Of all the details about my wedding that I had to juggle and worry about, the band was not one of them. After a few interactions with Jeremy, I felt fully confident in his ability to do a stellar job and take care of everything. And he did! He accomodated several special requests that I had, including letting one of my bridesmaids use his keyboard to play a piece during the ceremony. He also ran all our sound during the ceremony, which was a HUGE help. He and his band were fab during the reception-classy and fun. Everyone LOVED them and their music. "
