"Best Wedding Band in the Northwest"

The Dudley Manlove Quartet is indeed a most original cover band. And since their debut in 1995, DMQ has become one of Seattle’s top club draws and corporate and wedding acts, wowing crowds with their unique mixture of cocktail lounge classics, nostalgic dance favorites, and one-hit wonders.

What makes Dudley the perfect party band? It’s the songs. The Dudley Manlove Quartet’s specialty is serving up the tunes you forgot you knew, inspired versions of pop classics from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s that you loved then and still love today.

The variety of DMQ's repertoire is unparalleled--there's swing, disco, rock, pop, ballads, and TV themes, everything from The Four Seasons' "Can't Take My Eyes off of You" to ABBA’s “Dancing Queen” to Neil Diamond’s “Sweet Caroline” to The Buggle's "Video Killed the Radio Star." It's a swingin’ Vegas floor show, a funky wedding reception, and your high school prom rolled into one giant party.

And the party is rolling. Appearing in the best venues in Seattle (Triple Door, Showbox, Crocodile, Tractor Tavern, Neumo's), Portland (Crystal Ballroom), San Francisco (Bimbo’s, Café du Nord, Fillmore West, and Red Devil Lounge), and the House of Blues in Chicago and Los Angeles, the Dudley Manlove Quartet brings the house down wherever they play. DMQ has also performed at countless weddings in Washington and across the continent, from Vancouver Island to Massachussetts, Jackson Hole to the California wine country. Big corporations – Microsoft, Philips Medical, and Price Waterhouse Cooper, just to name a few – have also called on DMQ for private events in far-flung locales like Tokyo, Toronto, and the Caribbean. They know that no matter what the crowd, the Dudley Manlove Quartet will get the joint a-jumpin’.

Here's a sampling of what DMQ's recent clients have to say:

"We were looking for a band that had a great sound, a driving beat and could get everyone up out of their chairs and dancing. Wow, did we get what we were looking for!

To see the young kids, the teenagers, the young families with babies, and even we old geezers all going crazy on the dance floor was a dream come true. And to keep everyone “out there” and energized until the mandatory 11:00 stop was also a testimony to your talents as a band.

I can’t thank you enough for your positive attitude and your clear vision of what the night was all about. You guys are champs. And talented champs as well. I’d recommend you to anyone considering an event in a heartbeat."

Joe McKinstry, Seattle


"We heard you play at our friends' wedding at Carneros Inn in Sonoma last year. It was the best wedding band/dance experience we have had (and we've been to approximately 40 weddings). We're thrilled that you're playing our anniversary party in Napa Valley this summer!"

Anna Rembold, San Francisco


"DMQ made my 40th birthday bash stress-free and totally fun. Very professional, very talented. Even the wallflowers danced. And they let me (the birthday girl) sing backup!"

Molly Lammers, Seattle


"Having DMQ perform for our party really added a great celebratory tone and immediately got people smiling and dancing. Our guests stayed on the dance floor cutting a rug until the music fell silent. Thank you for making it so easy for us and for giving us such great music to dance to!"

Dena Rigby, Seattle


"They are one of the BEST bands for a wedding or event -- they are fun, get folks up dancing and their selection of songs is so 'bad,' it's terrific!"

Karen Sharp, Seattle


"I'm a long time fan of DMQ, so when planning our restaurant's 35th anniversary party, Dudley was my first choice. The guys were really easy to work with, accommodating of our requests, and great fun at the event. I'm sure many of our guests became new fans of the band. I would absolutely hire them again."

This group was very professional, accomodating, talented and extremely fun! Everyone at the party had a wonderful time with their music. Dudley Manlove played a perfect assortment of songs and humored people who had musical requests of their own. I would love to hire them again, just need a good excuse for another party! Thank you!
