My wedding was 10/1/11...here is an email I just sent to Jim D:
Well I can't believe it has been a month already since our wedding at Michigan Shores Club. I just wanted to send you a note to tell you how much we LOVED the band. I have had rave reviews on our reception from so many people, and everyone agreed that the band made a good wedding into a fantastic wedding! As I am sure you could tell since they would not let you stop playing! Thanks for going the extra mile, and playing a few more songs. I will never forget the final song with everyone in a circle around us and John Denver Country Road. Sounds sappy, but when you are buzzed at the end of the night, it was perfect!
And by the way, Matt and I thought you guys nailed For Once in my Life! We didn't know what to expect, and had been practicing our dance to Stevie Wonder, and you guys didn't change a thing, didn't miss a beat....and for me our first dance will always be one of my best memories of my wedding!
thanks again for everything!

We couldn’t be happier with choosing Underwater People for our wedding reception! Jim was so informative, friendly, and amazingly easy to work with from the very first emails we exchanged, and their performance on the day was unbeatable! We continue to hear raves from our guests weeks after the wedding, and would recommend UWP in a heartbeat. You guys rock!

These guys are a really fun alternative to a "traditional" wedding band!
