Outstanding Performers and Highly Organized
From start to finish, Collision Six was fantastic to work with. At the beginning of our process, initial conversations with the band were extremely informative and professional. They had a very good balance of catering to our style, while making suggestions/recommendations based on the band's experience. As we got closer to the wedding, they continued to stay on top of every detail both in terms of music and logistics.Sent on 04/04/2020
Days leading up to our wedding, COVID-19 had just reached Michigan which brought uncertainties to our wedding. Matt (band leader) checked in with us almost daily not only giving us assurance they would be performing, but also offering lots of positive and encouraging words. This was so appreciated given our high level of stress.
The day of the wedding, the band could not have been more organized. Milestones throughout the night (cocktail hour, dinner, first dances, open dancing) went off without us needing to give any direction. It felt completely effortless to us and made us feel at ease, which allowed us to fully enjoy our reception.
In addition to the level of professionalism we experienced during the process and the day of the wedding, Collision Six outperformed all expectations!! A month later, we still have guests asking for the band name and saying it was the best live music they've heard at a wedding. They are a complete package with talent throughout the entire ensemble. We specifically asked for older genres (60s, 70s, 80s, 90s), and they played fantastic renditions of every song.
We were so happy with Collision Six's performance the day of the wedding and would highly recommend them. We truly valued the relationship we built throughout the process and the level of support and reassurance they provided to us before our big day.
Collision Six's reply:Thank you for this amazing review! So glad to hear that our approach leading up to your wedding date -- through planning, discuss COVID-19 related issues, and reviewing information -- felt like the right touch for you. Very cool that you appreciated the attention to detail with hitting the timeline elements at a comfortable pace and without direction. That's so important to us! And then yes, the band! We're so happy the music was on point for you, and it was really fun focusing the playlist around your taste and style. Great song choices! We loved working with and celebrating with you guys. Hope to see you both again soon. Congrats again!

Hire collision six. You won't regret it.
100% one of the best decision we made while planning our wedding was hiring Collision Six to be the entertainment.Sent on 02/06/2020
Matt was attentive, thorough, organized, and overall wonderful with all of the planning and communication leading up to our big day.
The piano music for our ceremony was beautiful and when the party got started our dance floor was packed from the first song to the last; Collision Six even learned a special song for our first dance and ABSOLUTELY SLAYED IT.
The evening flowed effortlessly and was all we could have dreamed.
Collision Six's reply:Thank you so much for sharing this incredible review! So happy to hear that you appreciated our approach to the planning side of things, but more importantly, that you loved the music we provided your ceremony and reception. It was an incredible group of people gathering together -- so much fun! Thanks for the kind words about your first dance song; it was one of our favorites we put together in a long while! Congrats again, and hope to see you both soon!

Collision 6 was absolutely fantastic! Matt was great to work with all the months leading up to the wedding and was a great MC, he kept everything on tract and the party engaged the entire time and made the whole day stress free! The band is so talented, Sarah’s voice is amazing and the guys are awesome as well! We loved that we were able to get a variety of male and female covers between all the band members! I’d recommended them to anyone because they were such a big part in making our wedding day perfect!Sent on 09/14/2020

We had a great time with everyone and can't wait to see you all again!

Band Leader / MC / Guitar / Vocals
In October 2000, after too many mundane weekends, Matt decided to do something more productive with his time - learn to play guitar. After several years of experimenting with other instruments, Matt feels he finally found his home with the old six string. Matt is a career Collision Six Man - helping start the band back in 2002 and remaining the only original member of the group. If you're looking for lots of energy and a sincere projection of the love of music, direct your attention to Matt's side of the stage.
Sarah started singing in high school and has since performed classical music in various choirs, the National Anthem at Chrysler events and Detroit Shock basketball games, and in a variety of local events. Sarah originally started filling in for c6 in June 2007 and was quickly asked to remain a full-time member. If you want energy, excitement and a voice that will ignite your party, look no further than Sarah.

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.
