About this pro
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!Jun 12, 2013
The Michael Benson Band was awesome. We saw them at a friend's wedding and knew that we had to have them play for ours. As expected, they were amazing and kept the dance floor packed all night. They were also extremely professional and a pleasure to do business with. We requested that they learn a new song for our first dance, and they accepted without hesitation. They lived up to all expectations, and were an integral piece to making our wedding night a huge success. Thanks again MBB!Mar 11, 2013
The Michael Benson Band was absolutely fantastic. Hands down the best wedding band. I just hope I get to see them perform again! They really know how to keep the crowd dancing and the energy high. Great to work with, could not have been happier.Feb 22, 2013
We used Michael and his band for our daughter's Orthodox Jewish wedding & reception. Michael easily adapted to our requirements, and had an extensive repertoire of Jewish music as well as the more traditional pieces. Our guests loved his music. I highly recommend The Michael Benson BandFeb 14, 2013
We loved working with the Michael Benson Band! They came highly recommended and surpassed our expectations. Our guests can't stop talking about how much fun the band was. They left to chants of 'one more song' but unfortunately the venue was closing... Thank you, MBB!Feb 13, 2013
