About

2022 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).

    Perfect and So Fun

    Matt and Collision 6 truly made my daughter's wedding special from start to finish with music for the ceremony, music for cocktail hour, MC'ing and of course music for the reception!!
    They set the tone for the whole evening. Loved all the music, dancing and energy from start to finish. Matt's experience, communication, timeline, and follow through were seamless, well appreciated, and reassuring throughout the year of planning. Well done! Would use again in a heartbeat.

    Collision Six's reply:

    Thank you so much for sharing this feedback. We love getting to hear feedback from parents too, so seeing this review warms the heart! We're so happy that our approach to communication and everything leading up to the big day felt reassuring, and we're even happier that the music was on point all night! The ceremony was absolutely incredible and the energy on the dance floor was because of an incredible group of friends and family there to celebrate. We loved all of it, and we're honored you trusted us to create such a great experience for your family.

    The best band we could ask for!!!!

    I cannot express how Collision Six blew us out of the water on our wedding day!! Matt and his team were so incredibly helpful and thorough throughout the process of planning our wedding. Even from the very first consultation call with Collision Six, they were putting us at ease for our wedding. Throughout the process we always felt that Matt and his team really cared about the performance that they would put on and wanted us and our guests to have a great time, probably almost as much as we did. They were prompt to send us an extensive catalog of songs to choose from for both DJing and the Live band. All communication with Matt and his team was prompt and very helpful. They are the epitome of professional.

    Now get to the wedding day…. the reception was off the charts!!! Every song choice fit perfectly into the flow of the reception, and they kept the dance floor packed all night! The band even played live for all the first dances which was very special. They were very fun and high energy, and we've received countless compliments from guests about how much they loved the band. Matt even jumped onto the dance floor (which I loved!!). My husband and I did not get off the dance floor once as the party was rocking! Hiring Collision Six was one of the best choices we made, and you cannot go wrong with them as your band!

    Collision Six's reply:

    Wow - thank you so much for this awesome review. We're so happy that the initial consultation felt so good and led you to believe we'd be a good fit for your wedding. Fast forward to planning, and we just had so much fun working with you to understand your vision and help you craft a flow and timeline that would bring it to life. You had great ideas for the style and the feel of the night. On the wedding night, we couldn't agree more. The reception was off the charts! It was so much fun seeing everyone dancing, especially the two of you. Your special dances were cool and fun to play and felt great watching you dance along to the. The entire night was so high energy and so much fun from beginning to end. We're so happy that you felt we were one of your best choices for your wedding; we're honored to have been chosen. Thanks for asking us to celebrate with you!

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.
