Jeremy Shrader and The Hot Memphis Four were incredible! Every step of the way - from the booking to the communication to the performance, the band surpassed my expectations a thousand times over. I wish I could change my star ratings to 10. I would HIGHLY recommend hiring Jeremy for any function - these guys are top notch. It was a pleasure working with them and hearing them play. Their talent is amazing and just what we were looking for. I hope this review helps others when choosing to book this band - you will NOT be disappointed. Best of luck to Jeremy and his band, I hope they see and reap the rewards from the success they so much deserve.

Jeremy is wonderful! This is the second time my family has had the pleasure of having him play for an event. We couldn't have asked for a better band to play at my dad's 60th birthday celebration.
