About

2021 Couples' Choice Awards Winner

Collision Six is a professional, versatile and high-energy band operating out of Metro Detroit. Simply put, we are passionate about being the best at what we do -- creating unforgettable experiences for our clients and their guests!

We do that by collaborating with our clients to bring their unique vision to life. That includes taking the time to learn and understand what they're looking for before we sign a contract, and then locking arms to make sure that vision is realized.

We take a professional approach to the planning process, guiding our clients through the design of their timeline and the song choices that make their night special, and we're going to make it easy and fun for you. On event day, we'll be there early to make sure everything looks and sounds great before any of your guests arrive. Then, it's party time!

We are NOT a group of hired-gun musicians or a group of individual musicians assembled for an event. Our band performs together every weekend and rehearses during the week so we can do things other bands simply can't do. Our performance builds as we transition smoothly from song-to-song, and our song selection includes music from every generation that is mixed and mashed up in ways that will keep people on their feet (and on their toes!). The best part? -- it's all done with 100% live music (no computer tracks) so we can keep our attention on the vibe in the room, and we can pivot if a song doesn't hit the way we thought it might. Add some interactive lighting and the high-energy showmanship, and you're ready for a party people are going to be talking about for years to come!

Collision Six provides options for services and pricing that can be customized to suit your needs and preferences. That includes music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. It can include additional musicians beyond our core 8-piece group and lots more! We also include an MC, a sound system and audio engineer, interactive lighting and a planning meeting with Matt (band leader + MC).

    Collision Six is amazing!

    We could not have asked for a better band to play at our wedding. From our first meeting, through the planning phase, to our ceremony and reception, Collision Six was extremely professional and thoughtful. Throughout our reception, we received endless compliments about how amazing the band was. Our guests were on the dance floor the entire night. Matt was a great MC and the band brought so much energy to our wedding. We could not recommend Collision Six more highly!

    Collision Six's reply:

    Thank you so much for sharing this feedback. So happy you received so many compliments about the music, the band and the MC style. We loved working with you through the planning process and are so glad that our approach was a good fit for you. It was such a great party! Thanks for trusting us to deliver the goods! Congrats again!

    Breathtaking Band and Worth Every $

    Collision Six is an absolutely FABULOUS band and SO TALENTED! Not only are they a band, but the also MC your whole wedding night...from getting people seated, to speeches, and first dances.....they made the night run so smooth and were amazing. They filled every request of mine and MORE! As my dad and I were dancing...he looked at me..and said...Honey I am sorry for the fuss about the price of the band.....It is a 100% worth it! and they are amazing!!

    Collision Six is by far the best out there! They have played for multiple of my cousins weddings and I hope to see them again soon at another family wedding :)!

    Collision Six's reply:

    Thank you so much for sharing this review! Ahh....you two were so much fun. From seeing you at your cousin's weddings in the past, to working together on the planning, to seeing you smiling and dancing all night. It was such a fun evening, with a lot of positive vibes in the room. That's so cool to hear what your dad said -- that means a lot -- because we know we're not the cheapest band out there. We hope to see you at another wedding sometime soon too! Congrats again!

I recently worked with Collision Six on a mutual client wedding and they were phenomenal!!! Not just the sound they produce on stage but Matt my contact was super friendly, prompt on returning my emails and just an overall nice guy. He really has the best interest of the client and you can tell he loves what he does. His trio that played cocktail hour was one of the best I ever heard! I have been in this industry since 1999 so you can only imagine how many I have heard but they are stellar!! Book them today for all your music needs. You won't regret it.
