    Best Band Ever!

    Dave,Irene and the band were amazing ---- just the greatest band and the greatest to deal with! They played at my daughter's large wedding last month and they had everyone up dancing the whole time- even the few people who don't typically dance. I have been to a million weddings and other events and this was by far the best band I have seen. If you want a high energy band, pick The Dave Macklin Band. I am still getting compliments about them. They are also so easy to deal with in all the planning before-- very responsive, very warm, and very professional. We are just so happy they played at their wedding. They are the absolute best!

    Great band!!

    We have had two other big birthday parties with a band, and each band was the talk of the town for years afterwards.

    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!!!!
