On WeddingWire since 2012

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).

Best wedding band EVER!

The evening of the wedding was an absolute blast, and it's all thanks to the band's high energy and undeniable talent. From the moment they started playing, they had the entire crowd on their feet. It was like they had an innate ability to gauge the crowd's energy and tailor their performance to keep everyone engaged and excited. Their setlist was diverse and catered to all ages, ensuring that no one was left out. Matt's charisma and stage presence were infectious, making it impossible not to get caught up in the fun.

But perhaps the most impressive feat was their ability to keep people on the dance floor all night long. It's not an exaggeration to say that we barely saw an empty space on the dance floor from the first dance to the very last song. The transitions between songs were seamless, and the band's enthusiasm was contagious. Our guests are still raving about how they've never had so much fun at a wedding before.

In addition to their musical prowess, Matt and his band members were an absolute joy to work with. They were professional, friendly, and approachable, making our experience feel personal and tailored to our vision. They exceeded our expectations in every way possible.

If you're in search of a wedding band that will leave your guests talking about your special day for years to come, look no further. Matt and his band are more than just musicians – they're memory-makers, dance-floor-fillers, and all-around exceptional entertainers. We are endlessly grateful for their contribution to our wedding, and we can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you for making our night unforgettable!

Great wedding band!

Matt and the entire Collision Six band were great to work with before the wedding, and their musical abilities during the wedding itself was very memorable. Can't recommend enough!

Collision Six is the best!

Collision Six did an amazing job for our wedding and making sure it went off without a hitch. They played during the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception and kept everything moving along smoothly. Everyone was on the dance floor all night singing along to the music. They brought such a great energy to the room and we got so many compliments on their performance. Our friends and family will be taking about them ending the night with Seasons of Love for years to come. Matt was a pleasure to work with and made everything easy for us. We would recommend them in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a band for any occasion.

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.
