The Michael Benson Band

    Before we ever started wedding planning, I always thought we'd go the DJ route when it came time for our big day. For some reason, I didn't think most bands could do my favorite songs justice. Then, we saw the Michael Benson Band in action. When we finally got to planning our wedding, one of our "must-haves" was a good dance party, so it was never a question that MBB would be part of our day. We even tried to keep it a surprise to our guests, many of whom are familiar with Michael and his performances, but once we let it slip, our friends could barely contain their excitement, knowing that an especially fun wedding was ahead of them. Michael was an absolute professional from day one, humoring my bridal anxieties and accommodating some very special requests, including our first dance -- a Phish song covered by Dave Matthews (the perfect song to appease both bride and groom!). And what a dance party it was! High heels were removed, jackets and ties taken off, Gangnam Styles and lassos appeared, and guests who claim they "never dance" were mysteriously summoned out to the floor. We never wanted it to stop. Thank you, Michael Benson Band, for being such a huge part of what made our day so perfect!

    I have worked with David as a teacher of a Rock Band class and related Music Theory. He is knowledgeable, thoughtful, enthusiastic, and fun. He wrote his own theory book about improvisation which has been very helpful in making something which could be scary, both accessible and possible. In Rock Band he works with many kinds of instruments quite effectively.

    Miriam was great to work with, cooperative with our inability to pay with cash/check, and the performance was great. We appreciated the background music, but could easily see that the band would be great for a more interactive performance as well. Overall the experience was great!

    I use Ian for our monthly music and all of our Wine Club releases as well. He is always professional, easy to work with, and always demanded by our guests to come back. If you are looking for the perfect sound, from a dependable musician, look no further. I highly recommend Ian (and his band if you have the space for it) for any event. He can rock any room, and he can also serenade any audience as well. He also brings an audience with him, and his sound draws in anybody within range. And unlike a lot in his profession; he is dependable and always incredibly easy to work with. Thank you Ian!

      Band was absolutely amazing and with much better musicians at a lower price than other bands we checked out. They were able to learn and master our first dance songs on a last minute basis, play some unexpected live requests, and even allow our friends to join and sing on a couple tunes. Many people complimented the vocalist and the band in general at the end of the night as well. Highly recommend. I have background in music, and these guys know how to play.

      Pyramid Scheme was everything we hoped for and more. The interaction with them before, during and after the performance was perfect. Their repotoire is excellent, they adjusted the sound level right to the size of the room and the crowd, normal discussions were still possible without loosing any intensity of the songs played. Even joining the band to play a few numbers together using their instruments was possible. Would definately hire Pyramid Scheme again if we need entertainment in the area.

        We hired Ryan and his band to play for our wedding. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. We asked him to play specific songs, and he wrote out music for the whole group and they performed it perfectly! He made our magical evening truly one to remember. Would highly recommend Ryan and his band for weddings, corporate event entertainment, background music, and anything in between.

        Dan Kramlich is the best! Dan's grunge trio performed at my wedding ceremony and for the cocktail reception afterwards. My family and friends raved at how wonderful the music was. I had attended a few of his grunge trio's performances and contacted Dan to have him perform at my wedding. It was the first wedding decision my husband & I made - even before picking a venue, date or anything else. Before the wedding, I provided Dan with a list of songs for the ceremony and he was incredibly thorough about asking questions to better understand the length of the procession (and therefore estimated timing of songs and cut offs for the music) as well as dress code for the band. Dan was very prompt and responsive to all emails prior to the wedding for questions we and our venue had. At the wedding, they showed up early to set up and performed the music wonderfully. It says a lot to trust someone enough to let them play live music you walk down the aisle to. My husband and I were very happy about the results and our wedding guests could not have been more delighted. It was fun to watch their faces light up and exclaim, "Wait... I know this song!" We'd hire Dan again in a heartbeat.

        Lauren was able to accommodate a last minute request to play at my son's rehearsal dinner, when the musician we had hired had a medical emergency. As it turned out, I was SO much happier with Lauren and her harp than I would have been with a Jazz band - she provided the perfect accompaniment to an intimate gathering of close friends and family of the bride and groom. She plays beautifully, and I highly recommend her!

        We had Michael and his band play for a reception on New years Eve. The whole experience from booking the band through performance and breakdown was great. Very professional group and sounded great! My guests were thrilled. Would definitely use them again.

        They did the best classics, and new stuff too, it was so fun! So nice to have a real live band and not a DJ. We were getting compliments on the band all night. Such a great time! Thanks Highsteppers, you rock.

        Lindstrom and Company are truly great performers and musicians. They can be the highlighted talent, or perform as house music. They are capable of mastering a wide selection of music that easily makes them art for any occasion. You will never be dissapointed in hearing them perform.

            I used to go see K. W. and his band play in the Bremerton, WA area. After hearing him play I wanted to learn to sound like that. He has been a major influence in my playing. I strongly endorse him.

            I guess that would depend on which service we're referring to here; as far as karaoke goes I feel that it's because I add to the performance of the singer by playing assorted instruments, backing vocals, and an above average mix. These things combine to create a much more authentic feel for a singer. As far as instruction, I use a much more informal and flexible style that I feel is less rigid for a new student and allows for more creativity and enhanced advancement.
