By far, the best band to choose for your reception! This is one band that will have your guests talking for weeks after your event. They are so magnetic they will have all your guests on the dance floor. They even learned our song so Danny could sing it for our first dance. They are just simply amazing!

A review from a recent wedding in San Jose Stated:
Planning a wedding involves a whirlwind of details. Quality entertainment is one of the most important aspects. The MIXX surpassed all our expectations, and then some. With so much to do before the big day, working with Danny J on everything from the contract, details of the song list, the first dance, all the way to helping us connect a PA to a grand piano for the wedding ceremony, proved to be a breeze. He was highly attentive with great communication, all before the wedding even started! Danny even scouted the venue a week before to make sure he had everything we needed to be successful. On the day of, the band was there to set-up on-time (2 hours before the scheduled start-time) and brought high-end and professional equipment—a testament to their professionalism. 
A great example of how awesome the MIXX proved to be came in the form of a special request: I wanted to surprise my wife with a live performance on my acoustic guitar, and Danny did everything in his power to make me feel comfortable as well as play back-up on his ukulele (percussion was also provided by one of his bandmates on a very unique instrument). We had a quick sound check/rehearsal while they were setting-up, and his encouragement gave me the confidence to get up and perform before our first dance. He even set-up a mic for my guitar as well as myself, and a chair for the bride, while I serenaded her. I am eternally grateful (and thankful) for the experience and definitely a moment my wife will remember forever. 
In regards to the music and band, their ability to play a variety of songs proved to be a hit to the various age groups in the crowd. Motown, Latin, R&B, and Pop tunes kept the dance floor grooving,with high energy to keep everyone moving. The lead singers were AWESOME, providing a great mix of male and female vocals which resonated the space as the band played flawlessly behind them. The MIXX even provided an MC for the reception, and gave us the option to play the ceremony and cocktail hour if we didn't already have somebody. Basically, they were there for whatever we needed, and did their best to accommodate our needs. 
All we can say is tremendous customer service, professionalism and a great sound. In addition, their pricing proved to be super-competitive and the best entertainment for your money. Compared to the other bands that we were scouting, the MIXX was the BEST choice we could have ever made and are completely satisfied to have had them as our wedding band. Five stars. 5-24-12 - Christina & Sean - Sainte Claire Hotel, San Jose, Ca

Here's a recent review from the California Pipe Trades Council stated:
We've hired the Mixx three times over the past several years to perform at our California State Pipe Trades convention. We have a Saturday night party for 300 that requires a truly rockin' band to satisfy this dancing group. Not only do they seriously rock -- keeping everyone on the dance floor -- but their singers have excellent stage presence and are highly entertaining. We keep inviting the Mixx back because they do not disappoint.

A recent review from the Junior League of Sacramento - Family Fun Fest stated:
"The Mixx recently played at a Family Fun Fest which was a large community fundraiser at Fairytale Town - for the Junior League of Sacramento. Not only were Mother Goose and Old Mother Hubbard tapping their toes - but toddlers, grandparents and everyone in between danced the night away to the up beat music of The Mixx. Their repertoire was extensive and The Mixx kept the party atmosphere going all night long!! They are an extremely talented group of musicians, very professional, flexible and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend them for any type of event." 5/17/12 Mary C - Family Fun Fest - Junior League Sacramento, Ca

A recent review from the Hillel House for Education stated:
The Grand Opening of the new Hillel House at UC Davis was 15 years in the making and the MIXX set a happy, welcoming tone. Everyone was greeted with great music from the 60's to the present and walked into our new building with a song in their hearts. This band is fabulous to work with and even creatied a sound track for a special program. They are professional, polite and generous with their talents. I highly recommend them. They are terrific! 5/8/12, Anne-Hillel House for Education, UC Davis, Ca

A recent review from Stanford Youth Solutions based in Sacramento stated:
The MIXX brought their wonderful talents to our annual event, Vintage 2012. From cocktail hour on, It was fantastic. They are delightful to work with but their music is wonderful and the range of sounds that they can accommodate was perfect for us. Jazz and light tunes for the early evening and hot live band sound for the after party! Great playlist, sound and a super fun group. Danny also donated 2 gift baskets to our auction! A band with a BIG heart! THANKS to the team for their wonderful addition to our event. We'll see you next year!!

A recent review from a corporate client based in the South Bay stated:
I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank "The Mixx" for playing at our Corporate Holiday Party. Our Executive Staff and employees were impressed by the band and you'll definitely be our first to call for future holiday galas ! We were especially pleased you were able to deliver music across all genres, both new and old, given our diverse group of employees. Thanks for having such a flexible attitude with regards to agenda changes and interacting so well with our employees during the raffles and announcements. I've personally referred you to several friends for future holiday events and wouldn't hesitate to hire you again. Again, Please give my regards to the band. We had a great evening!

A recent review from a corporate client based in San Jose stated:
The Mixx are very professional, quick to respond to your emails & phone calls. They made it really easy and comfortable for me while planning. I made last minute request for certain music for our Holiday Theme Party "Night at the Oscar" and they made it happened! They were on time and made the set- up nice and smooth. During cocktail hours and dinner, they played soft music that was sweet to your ears. Every single one of the band members were pleasant and had very welcoming attitude which makes it a plus for us. They did exactly what we asked for and even gone beyond. I highly recommend them. They are awesome! -MizuhoOSI- Richelle 12/19/11 Fremont, CA 

A recent review from a wedding in Sacramento stated:
The Mixx performed MC duties, ceremony music, cocktail hour music, and reception music at our wedding for nearly 7 hours and did a really incredible job. Everyone had a wonderful time and we have heard from many guests that it was the best reception they have ever attended. The music selection and the variety of styles, as well as their great talent, make them perfect for any reception. We are hoping to hire them again for events in the future.

A recent review of wedding on Treasure Island stated:
The Mixx was very professional during the event pre-planning, smooth communication, great to work with on site and played very well. They are a great band and we would hire them again.

A recent review for a corp event in Napa stated:
We hired The Mixx for our Wine Club events in June and Oct. of this year. Our members were extremely happy with the music which makes our events even more special. Our attendance doubled for the Oct. event as our members were extremely happy that they were returning. I also wanted to mention, Danny J makes it very easy to work with the band and the event agenda.

A recent review from a Vineyard Events Wedding stated:
"My only complaint might be that the evening ended too soon! No fault of "the Mixx" surely, we could have easily kept the party rollin' for several more hours since the crowd loved the band so much! Their energy was electric, vocals were flawless and the atmosphere they created was unstoppable. From the very beginning, Danny was easy to work with, prompt in his response to all inquiries and fun too. He even went out of his way to double check the venue without my even knowing it. He was asked to do some things that were a little out of the ordinary and didn't even bat a lash before agreeing to make it happen. I have already referred a few people to the Mixx and will continue to do so. I would be delighted to work with Danny and his crew anytime."
