My wife and I saw 3 of the band member play at Cache and hired them to play at her birthday party. They were amazing! We then went and saw the entire band play at Cajun's Wharf and were blown away. We hired them to play at our Wedding at Chenal Country Club last month and they were unbelievable. Countless guests commented how much they enjoyed our band. I would HIGHLY recommend them!Sent on 12/14/2016

Couldn't Have Picked a Better Group
My wife and I hired this band for our recent wedding last weekend and we couldn't be happier with how they performed. During the planning process, they were always professional and very responsive to requests. They met with us at the venue beforehand and assured us that it would be a terrific show. That's exactly what we got at the reception and everyone had and amazing time. They have a great stage presence and have a great setlist. I can't say anything more than they nailed it and we couldn't have possibly asked for a better band to be a part fo our wedding. One notable thing they did was play classical guitar during our wedding reception. When I first heard about this, I wasn't quite sure about this type of music. We ended up having them learn a few songs on classical guitar for the ceremony and again, it was just perfect. Classical guitar really makes for a nice ceremony. The quality of their performance was excellent, they were present for the rehersal, and did a perfect job. I can't say enough good things about this group other than to say definitely pick this group as you won't be dissapointed.Sent on 12/24/2018

Mayday by Midnight played for a birthday party (not a wedding) for my wife and me. Everything about it was top-notch, from the planning and contracting to the performance. The music was great, and the show was entertaining. Many of our guests complimented the band. I would highly recommend them.Sent on 09/24/2018
