We have had two other big birthday parties with a band, and each band was the talk of the town for years afterwards.Sent on 07/10/2019
The Dave Macklin Band continued that tradition by providing really great music from a really great band, this time for our 140th birthday party. So many people have mentioned to us how great the band was.
Thank you to all the musicians, and an extra big thanks to you Irene, for being so professional and easy to work with. We will pencil you in for our 200th birthday party in July of 2049!!!!

Dave and the band played at my wedding a few weeks ago and I have not stopped receiving compliments about them!! Every single person absolutely loved them! We saw the band play at a local venue a year ago and we were absolutely impressed. My incredibly picky fiancé (now husband) was smitten. I inquired on a limb about their prices and availability and I was ecstatic with the results! Their music persuaded even my least social/dance-y relatives to get out on the dance floor and have a blast. The interactions with Irene and the band are nothing but professional and accommodating, the performance is outstanding, the music is friendly for all ages, and the joy they include in your day is irreplaceable. Thank you so much for making our day perfect!!Sent on 07/02/2019
