  2. #2 Magnolia Jazz Band

    (5 reviews)

    Marla T.

    Magnolia Jazz Band did an AMAZING job at our office party. It was the perfect touch to our New Orleans inspired jazzy party. The music was classy and we got so many compliments on the music. Robbie was easy to deal with and very helpful when our building management had specific requirements. It was a pleasure to have them here and they were absolutely, hands-down, the best fit for our party. If you're looking for an elegant touch and music that can go from conversational level to entertainment level, go with Magnolia Jazz Band!!! Worth their weight in GOLD!

    Nataliya A.

    Stop looking for a band and hire MAX CRUISE today!!! We hired Pete's band for our housewarming party. I thought of a band at the last moment and Pete did all he can to make it happen. Well, I did not expect to get such a quality music! We had more then 30 people in our house and the band rocked them all! The bend arrived two hours before the party to setup the equipment. They brought the disco lights and other fun lighting that created the party atmosphere. We all danced like we where 18 again! Everyone loved the music and everyone asked where I found the band. One of our best friends is a an opera singer and she knows good music. She LOVED the band, complimented them several times! The next day, I got calls from my friends to praise the music again. I will invite them again and again!!!!

  6. #6 Campbell's Jazz Soup

    (2 reviews)

    Maia S.

    Brian and his band were a fantastic choice for our wedding! Brian was quick to communicate with me all the way along. The website is clear and contains snips of the songs so it was easy to make my set list. Although not everyone knows how to swing dance, anyone who wants to boogie can get down with the band. They adapted to the energy level of the crowd, they played hits that everyone would recognize, and they were totally professional! We had a reception of around 150 people and the dance floor was going the whole time! They also were very kind and let my brother in law use their equipment to sing us a song he wrote. What a blast! I would recommend this band to anyone who wants a smooth, fun loving, and professional experience. Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts! -Maia and Jed

  8. #8 The Snapcats Band

    (2 reviews)

    Bob A.

    We had a private birthday party of 50+ guests that the band played at. The band was absolutely fantastic. The songs were great with a great mixture between all of the 60s-80s rock and soul genres. We live at a RV & marina resort in the Delta. The local bars/restaurants have live bands playing 3 nights a week between May through October. Our guests were very impressed with this band and said they were the best band this year here at the Delta. There was so much dancing going on that night that our feet were sore two days later. Two local bars will booking them for next year performances. If you want a great time with great music, you must have Snapcats be at your gig.
