Every band has a unique story. Growing up, MPiRE co-creator Meredith Walker’s love of music was influenced by her father. He gave her the very first Sony Walkman. Born in 1971, a look through her massive music collection will leave you with a sense of variety. After moving to Orlando, Florida, her professional singing career blossomed.
Sharing the stage with some of the best bands in central Florida - entertaining for many of America’s Fortune 500 companies. She loves what she does, which is apparent from her open and engaging style on stage.
When the time felt right, Meredith reached out to her favorite musicians. The idea was to put together a band that could compete on a national level. An extremely talented and versatile rhythm section combined with a powerful horn section – and a bunch of great singers. MPiRE was born. A group of (9) people that share the common bond of having found their passion – making a living with their talent. It’s a band that has great chemistry on stage and knows how to use the Power of Great Music to engage their clients and energize the party.

First and foremost, I want to express the EXTREME customer service I received from this band. Something you wouldn’t necessarily consider at first when shopping for bands. We knew we wanted MPire as they played at a friend’s wedding and we had an incredibly fun evening. I don’t enjoy dancing at wedding usually but I had so much fun while they were performing. When we booked our venue, we learned that there were sound restrictions we had to work within. Chris the manager and Chris the sound engineer drove two hours to our venue to meet with the owner to work through all of the logistics. I feel it is important to note that this service was provided before we had signed a contract or paid them a dime. They spent and entire afternoon of time, travel, gas money and effort to help us get the band we wanted on our wedding day – even without the guarantee that they were going to be booked. Chris the manager was extremely responsive and addressed all of our questions and concerned, dealing with him was enjoyable. Finally, on wedding day, we had the best time. Our guests were raving about how great the band was. Even my father, who was against having a band from day 1 of wedding planning, has assured me several times since wedding night that the band made the night and he was extremely happy with their performance and impact on the night. Finally, for the customer service they provided and the quality and talent of their band, I feel like the value was amazing. Their price point was reasonable compared to the other bands we shopped and their service exceeding what we paid! I would recommend them without a single hesitation.Sent on 06/23/2018
