We wanted a great band for the wedding and The Miles Band did not disappoint one bit. If you’re in southern Vermont and a little nervous about finding a band for your wedding, your search is over - book them today!
On a perfect Vermont mid-June evening outdoors under a big tent, The Miles Band played a flawless set. The thing that stands out with this band is how the front line of Peter (guitar), Molly (percussion), Tim (bass), and right behind them Sean (drums), take turns on lead vocals. This allows for an amazing range of song selections. The musicianship of all the band members was incredible. Peter Miles and The Miles Band transcend the wedding band category. They had the entire dance floor packed from the first song to the last. The amount of people that have come to us telling us how good the band were is unbelievable.
I think I’m going to gatecrash future weddings just to hear these guys play again and relive our amazing wedding night.
Wow, Thanks Dana! That was such a perfect setting and a beautiful day all-around. So glad we were able to be there with you! Best of luck, always!
We hired Peter Miles and The MILES Band for our wedding day and they were amazing! They are all so incredibly talented and they made our day even more special than it already was. Their song list is extensive - I'm pretty sure they play almost every single genre. They even learned 3 songs for our first dance, mother/son and father/daughter dances! I gave Miles a little bit of direction about how we wanted them to sound and they were beyond perfect.
We also had Miles play for the ceremony. He played acoustic guitar and made the day so intimate and beautiful.
If you are looking for a band for your wedding, I highly suggest Peter Miles and The MILES Band! They are all so talented, friendly and performing is clearly their passion. You could tell that they truly enjoyed playing for our wedding as much as our guests enjoyed them!
Jaime - The songs you chose were so perfect, and we had a great time learning and rehearsing them. The way those dances came off was just fantastic! Thanks again for all your kindness!
The Peter Miles band was nothing short than amazing. They were so flexible, easy to contact and FUN! They totally surprised us and had learned ALL three of our personal dance songs and all sounded fantastic. For performing in a smaller area their sound was on point, volume wise and as a unit. The energy and clear talent from this group was amazing for all to watch and we got many compliments for having them! I HIGHLY recommend them for anyone looking to have the perfect live music
Hey guys - Thank you SO much for your review - Great pictures! That was a rockin' Father/Bride Dance for the record books! We had so much fun.
The guitar music for the ceremony was simply beautiful! The Miles Band then kept our guests on on the dance floor all night long! We highly recommend working with them!
Thank you so much, Chelsea! I thought your Ceremony was beautiful, too. The band had a great time watching all the hip-shakin' and swinging on the dance floor!
Miles and The MILES Band are absolutely amazing! From the moment we initiated an inquiry with Miles he was prompt in responding to us. After chatting with him on the phone, hearing his music and seeing the list of songs they play we knew they were the band for us and we could not have been more thrilled with their performance. Through the entire process leading up to our wedding Miles was quick to respond, worked with us to accommodate our wedding timeline as well as learning special songs for us.
The music that Miles (solo) learned for our ceremony was so special for us to have and extremely well done, absolutely amazing! The music that the band learned for us for our entrance song, first dance and father daughter dance were outstanding.
The MILES band are a very talented group of musicians. They had our dance floor packed the entire time. We got so many compliments from our guests about our band! I highly recommend Miles and The MILES Band!
Thanks so much, Leah! Your excellent planning made it all possible! We're so glad to have been part of your celebrations.
We highly recommend the MILES Band for your wedding or event! They are AWESOME! We enjoyed their jazz trio (fantastic!) for our cocktail reception and the full band (incredible!) for dinner/dancing during the wedding reception. Miles was so professional and responsive planning the live music for our reception. The band covers all types of musical genres, and Miles worked with us on song preferences (which appealed to our wedding guests ranging in ages from 5 to 90). They even learned a few new songs (ZBB!) that were not on their playlist for us. The MILES Band kept the dance floor packed for our entire reception and guests were shouting "encore" at the end! Such a blast.
Simply put, the MILES Band was outstanding. If they are available for your date, book them!
Oh, Kelly - Your so kind! Thanks very much for the glowing review. Wishing you both the very best as you settle in here 'up north'!
The MILES Band is the best wedding band I've ever heard. They had everyone up dancing the whole night from the grandparents to grandkids at my son's wedding. The positive, professional energy this band brought to the wedding set the tone for a very fun time, despite the crazy thunderstorm we endured! Great song selections that people sang along to. Everyone loved the band!
Thanks so much for your kind words, Mina. We'll never forget the spirit and joy of that day!
Miles was the perfect addition to our special day! We had a very small wedding (
Aw, Brad - I'm blushing..! ;-)
Peter Miles Band played at our wedding and they were AMAZING in every way! Peter was incredibly organized and communicative with me throughout my wedding planning process. The band played for hours and the crowd was having the best time. They were the best part of our wedding and I would hire them again in a second!!
Thank you SO much, Marisa! Hope to see you guys again soon!
Miles and the band made our big day SO incredibly memorable and fun! Their musicianship and professionalism were truly top notch, and their flexibility made everything flow smoothly throughout the reception. They were also so gracious in taking time to learn new songs for the Bride/Groom, Mother/Son, and Father/Daughter dances. My wife and I wholeheartedly recommend the band to ANY couple looking to make their wedding day all the more special with fantastic music and dancing!
Rich, you are so kind! That day was pure love, all around! Thanks so much for including us!
The Miles Band were exactly what my husband & I wanted for our recent wedding in Vermont! From my first point of contact with Miles to even after the wedding, he was extremely responsive & very professional. We booked him for a solo acoustic set during the ceremony (amazing), 3 piece jazz set during cocktail hour and the entire band for the reception. For the amount of time and effort that they put in, I feel their prices are extremely reasonable. We did not want a DJ or a cookie cutter wedding band and after seeing their extensive song list, I knew they would be perfect! They were happy to learn our 1st dance song and graciously had my mom come up on stage and rock out with them! They were easy to work with, accommodating to all requests, and great musicians! We couldn’t be happier to have had The Miles Band part of our special day!!! Alyssa & Kyle
Thanks so much, both of you! That was such a memorable, beautiful Vermont day!
Yes! Just say "yes" to hiring The MILES Band! They had our guests up and dancing all night long! From 6 to 89 years old, everyone was on the dance floor, showing off their moves, and having the time of their lives! I cannot tell you how many times I was asked during our reception, "Where did you find that band?!" They are amazing!" Miles is also very responsive and incredibly easy to work with. He had the band learn our first dance song - "First Day of My Life" by Bright Eyes - my father/daughter song - "Then They Do" by Trace Adkins - AND my parents' wedding song - "Longer" by Dan Fogelberg, which meant the world to me and my husband. Miles is a true artist and professional, and we are so thankful to him and his band for helping us to throw the party of a lifetime!
Thank you SO much, Cara. It was a fantastic day for all of us!
Peter Miles and the MILES Band were awesome! They helped make our wedding day perfect! Every request was accommodated. Highly recommended!!
Thanks Kathleen! That was a Grand party!
The Miles Band rocked our Vermont barn wedding! We were very happy with the communication from Miles and together we were able to tailor a set list and schedule to fit our celebration. They had our guests on the dance floor from the first song to the last!
We had some special requests, including learning a first dance song, letting the groom's band play a short set, and even a surprise musical toast from the father of the groom. They were extremely accommodating and flexible and this personalized approach really made a difference!
We had guests ranging in age from 1 to 94, and the band was able to find a little something for everyone to get down to. Highly recommended!
Thanks Willie! Your wedding celebration will go down in the history books! That was an awesome day for all!
We had a fantastic wedding reception thanks to Peter Miles and his band. I had hired them based on reviews and listening to their samples online, but I fully intended to make it to one of his regular public gigs to listen in person, but in the end I couldn't find the time to get there, so was the tiniest bit nervous never having heard them in person. I should not have worried--Miles and the band were amazing. We had a jazz trio playing during our cocktail hour, then the whole band on the stage during the dinner/dancing part of the reception. Both were perfect--they were able to read the crowd and pick the right sound for the right moment of the evening. Miles had our guests of all generations up and dancing. Hire this band!
Thank you so much M - it was an absolutely beautiful wedding!
The Miles Band and Peter Miles were amazing. We hired them off a recommendation by our wedding coordinator, who had used them for her own wedding, and we were absolutely blown away. We had Miles play solo acoustic guitar for our ceremony and hired the entire band for the reception. From the beginning of the process, Miles was very responsive to our emails. I felt I could trust him implicitly, which was a very unique feeling in the wedding-planning world.
He had awesome music suggestions for me when I was drawing blanks on ceremony songs and father-daughter dance songs. He and his band learned some very diverse songs for us, from Edward Sharpe's "Home" (for our ceremony recessional) all the way to Phish's "Meatstick" (a surprise for my Phish-loving groom), which they executed perfectly.
These guys have talent and heart. The dance floor was packed all night and the most common feedback we heard was how awesome the band was. They were easily the best decision we made for our wedding (perhaps tied with the aforementioned wedding coordinator) due to both the ease of working with them and the product they delivered. You will be so happy you hired them!
Emily - You're too kind, thanks!! We had a blast!
The Miles Band was absolutely amazing! They made our wedding perfect! They were willing to travel to Lake George, NY from Brattleboro, VT for our event and I can't even put into words how professional and fun they were! They got everyone up and dancing! The Miles Band learned new songs for our wedding and they were perfect! My mom was high-fiving the whole band after they finished the song for our dance. From beginning to end they were fun, energetic, and great! Can't say enough good things about them!
Peter Miles was fantastic to work with and was wonderful. The MILES band was amazing and made our wedding truly special. Everyone loved the music throughout the day! We received so many compliments.
The Miles Band was everything we wanted for our wedding day! Miles was extremely responsive throughout the planning for our wedding and worked with our venue as well so that everyone was on the same page come the big day. Miles himself played for our ceremony on acoustic guitar and then we had the four piece band play for the rest of the day. He was extremely professional in all of our communications with him and worked with other vendors throughout the day to make sure everything ran smoothly.
The staff at our venue said that they have never had a wedding there with as many people on the dance floor for as much of the night as they did when we had Miles playing! He and the band are fantastic musicians with a great set list that kept everyone dancing all night! People could not stop raving throughout the entire night and even after our wedding about how fantastic the band was. They were the absolute highlight of the evening and we cannot say enough about them. If you do not book this band you are missing out in a BIG way!
I have been watching Peter play solo and with his 4 piece band for over a decade. I have always loved his music and his personality. In a few dealings before my wedding I was aware of his professionalism but it was not until I hired and began to deal with him as my wedding band that I realized the extent of that professionalism. He knows weddings. That simply sums it up. His experience with all kinds of weddings will guide you through what you need and want for your special day. And the band, well they are all just incredible. The music was fun, appropriate and amazing. You'd be silly to question this addition to your wedding if you want a band. They are excellent!
Thanks very much, Celeste! You planned a fantastic day of celebrations, and I was so proud to help with that. It was a great experience to play locally for such a diverse group of family and friends from around the world! See you & Tom again soon!
If you're getting married, hire the Peter Miles Band - If the Peter Miles Band is unavailable, move your wedding date!
They were phenomenal. Everyone was off their feet as soon as they started playing and we've had countless guests send us messages about how much fun they had dancing to this band. Peter also did a fantastic job playing a solo acoustic ceremony and cocktail hour set. And after the band wrapped up, the drummer, Sean, transitioned to a DJ to keep the party going! They are super flexible and really work to tailor everything to your needs. Can't recommend these guys enough!
Hey - Thanks very much, Andrew. It was a beautiful day all-around! We were so glad to be there with you guys!
Miles and his band were amazing! The choices of music were right on the money! Miles made all the planning so much easier, with the way he coordinated with the venue as well as the other vendors!!.....Total pros!
Miles and his band was amazing!
Everyone loved the music.
Miles was very patient when selecting music for the ceremony.
The guys were AMAZING! They were the perfect choice for ceremony, cocktail
hour, AND reception. They were flexible and worked to make my vision a reality!!! We LOVED having them at our wedding and HIGHLY recommend them for any event you may be planning. LOVE THEM!!!!
We hired the Miles Band to play at our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. For the ceremony, a trio of band members played a couple of jazz songs we had picked out in advance. For the cocktail hour, the trio played jazz standards. For our reception, the full band played a mix of rock and roll, oldies, new songs, and funk. From start to finish, everything was absolutely perfect, and all of the band members were incredibly friendly, fun, and professional. The ceremony and cocktail hour music sounded beautiful and they were flexible and understanding in working with us on a customized ceremony plus some last minute location changes due to rainy weather. The band was a huge hit at the reception. They had the dance floor crowded for the entire party and guests are still raving a month later about how talented they were and how much fun everyone had. Guests were chanting at the end of the night to try and get the band to stay longer and multiple people asked us, "how did you find these guys!?" We were blown away by their rendition of our first dance and couldn't wipe the grins off our faces when they nailed song after song. They read the crowd perfectly and played just the right mix of well-timed slow songs and fast songs. As you can tell from this review we were blown away, but I honestly have no critiques and would choose the Miles Band again without a doubt if given the chance.
Wow! Thanks Alicia, that was a fantastic night. Thanks again for all your patience and your great communication with us leading up to the big day! We had a blast!
