Awesome! So fun! The band pretty much makes the party, and these guys kept everyone excited and on their feet the entire night. We listened to a lot of bands before we choose MatchMaker, and the truth is their singers are the most naturally talented singers we found. They can seriously belt out the songs. That’s cool, but what really matters with a wedding band is that they will be able to keep the party going, and these guys have so much energy that they feed the crowd. Everyone danced at our wedding, even the guys who never dance. Their set-list is huge, their music is great, and their energy is the thing that made our reception so much fun. If you want a band that will turn your reception into a party, MatchMaker is the right choice.

I fell in love with Matchmaker at a friends wedding 2 years ago and after all the weddings I've been to they just topped them all. Fortunately I booked them a year in advance of our wedding and locked them in and for the quality and energy the band brings to the stage, the cost is ridiculously inexpensive! They are SO awesome and fun and the entire crowd loved them and were on their feet and dancing. They welcome some fun up on stage and even arranged a special little intro that included them with my dad's welcome speech (unbenounced to me). They are so flexible and easy to work with and put on one heck of a show! I'm pretty sure they only took one break the entire night!
I freakin love Matchmaker and would highly recommend them to any bride and groom to be! They are the bomb!

My wedding planner recommended this band, and I had never heard them before. I just love motown. This band was amazing. 10 unbelievable performers. My guests kept commenting about how talented and fun the band was. I would definitely recommend them for anyone that wants their guests to get up and DANCE!

I can't even begin to express you what an incredible time we had at our wedding because of MatchMaker Band! It's the #1 thing that people keep talking to me about post-wedding. Every minute of the reception was a total blast.
- They were kind and patient to work with. Putting together the setlist, talking about flow of the evening and sound set-up was totally seamless.
- Their performance was incredible -- everyone (all ages) was on the dance floor all night. Vocals, on-stage routine, stage set-up, attire and incredible attention to detail and sound (they have an incredible sound person who makes everything just perfect).
I am beyond grateful that I found them!

I can't say enough good things about Matchmaker Band. You're probably stressed and overwhelmed right now with wedding (or event) planning, but do yourself the easiest favor and just HIRE THEM. I can't imagine you'll be disappointed.
We just had the privilege of having Matchmaker Band play at our wedding reception. We didn't stop dancing all night. And our guests were calling them "the BBE" - the Best Band Ever. And I have to agree with them.
This cute, young, hip, energetic and talented group definitely has it going up on the stage with their vocals, tunes, sound and stage presence. And you'll have the best party going as a result.

Brides - STOP LOOKING - you have found your Perfect Entertainment! I'm not kidding - The Matchmakers Band is actual Perfection for your celebration! We sought them out after Sweet August Events Owner Katherine Lopez (fabulous) referred them to us to truly set the tone for our big day! This band, this Amazing Live band blew everyone away! I had guests searching their website for their next local gig - 100% Groupie style! Each musician and vocalist is extremely professional, friendly, and committed to making YOUR DAY PERFECT. They MC'd my event flawlessly keeping the crowd entertained, laughing, and of course dancing! :). Can you imagine dancing to 'AT LAST' sung by a beautiful woman who could go toe to toe with Aretha? Or try to imagine swooning to 'You Look Wonderful Tonight' and having to continuously look over your shoulder because you are Sure Eric Clapton walked in to serenade you!! For those of you groaning - ok, your exaggerating - IM NOT! Both location event coordinators made a point to tell me in all the celebrations they have helped create... These guys are THE BEST LIVE BAND WE'VE EVER HEARD ((and they are going to try to book them for the company NYE party))!
Even better - each of the band members has their own awesomely chic style that will only help elevate the classiness of your day!
This is a No Regrets, Beyond Worth It choice! If your budget doesn't allow for entertainment of this magnitude... Re-work the budget :) THEY ARE THAT GOOD!
p.s. I'm not related to or in anyway affiliated with The Matchmakers Band ((although I'd love to be)) :) I am however, a New fan of this deeply talented band and a Fan of helping ladies out who are up to their eyeballs in wedding to-do's :)
I am also a Music Lover who really wanted to create an awesome experience for our guests! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

We loved you all and could not have been more pleased. Your dinnerset was particularly appreciated for quality and sensitivity to volume. I loved that you ramped it up as the evening went on and our kids have been beyond thrilled with their party.

From the moment the music began, the entire wedding became magical. The music was phenomenal, the band's energy was awesome, and everyone was on the floor dancing for the entire evening.

This band was perfect for my reception, the dance floor was packed until they started shutting the place down... Matchmaker plays a wide variety of music and plays it WELL!! They are a fun and talented group.
