Jon, just wanted to express to you how much our family and friends enjoyed your band at my daughter, Michelle’s wedding last Sat. night at The Coronado! You all were amazing! As I mentioned to you that evening, I’m pretty sure you just took one short break, and it was soooo apparent that the crowd LOVED you all!! Don’t usually see a band enjoy themselves as much as yours was, and that is quite contagious; the crowd was having a GREAT time, too; the quality of the music all night long was superb!! Thank you for adding so much to Michelle and Andrew’s beautiful day; it was amazing!!

This is an Amazing Band! They played the whole reception and every song was better than the next. They are amazing to work with and very accommodating. We took the opportunity to upgrade to their larger band Push The Limit, it was worth every penny.

Hi Jon,
Just wanted to let you know how much we LOVED your music!  You and your band were so awesome, all of our guests were commenting on it and you could obviously see the dance floor was very busy!  Thank you for the great announcing too.  You were all so professional and thorough and a pleasure to work with.  Our family and friends had a blast and you had a lot to do with it.
Thanks again,

SLAM did an excellent job. After the reception people commented repeatedly at how great the band was. We searched for a long time and I’m so happy that they were available on the date we needed them. It was all great! So glad we had them. They made the night TONS more fun!!!!!!

Downtime completely exceeded my expections! We hired them to play at our wedding reception in June 2012 and they kept the party going all night! I had so many guests compliment me on the band more than anything else! Many said that Downtime was the best band they had ever heard at a wedding. I can’t recommend them enough!!

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the members of The X Band for providing such great dancing music last Saturday at the wedding reception of Megan and Brendan Morris! The crowd totally enjoyed the entire night’s performance, as I’m sure you could tell from where you all were up on the stage. You probably saw things that you’ve never seen before at a wedding (slip-and-sliding in the beer spills on the floor, for example!!! a-hem….). As I mentioned to you when I booked your band, Megan and Brendan would rather have NO band than a mediocre band. You measured up to and easily exeeded all of their expectations, without any doubt, and have shared in creating many wonderful memories of their most special day. Thank you again for a job well-done!

I don’t think I could do justice in words just how fantastic Downtime Band was in the planning and performance for our wedding reception. The planning and coordination with the band was professional and personal. The Band made the reception unforgettable! We had several special requests and Downtime Band was flexible and accommodating to everything! The dance floor was packed the entire evening and we received continuous feedback from the guests that the band was incredible! I can’t thank them enough for making one of the most important days of my life even more memorable!

The X Band was great! The song selection is solid and they were able to learn our two requests for Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances at our wedding. They sound great and were really easy to work with. Supplementing the band’s breaks with our ipod playlist was awesome for some of our special requests. Overall, The X Band sounded great and were really great to work with, you can’t go wrong with them.

You were great. Jon was so easy to work with and the music was terrific. All our guests commented on how good the band was and that it was not a”wedding band”. I especially liked how each song flowed into the next. Everyone was sorry that the evening had to end.
Thank you.

Above and beyond! Jon & the band truly made our reception memorable for us and for our guests. We had compliments all night (and continue to receive them!) about how great the music was – the selection, the energy and the performance. Working with Jon leading up to the wedding was seamless. He delivered on everything he promised (and so much more!). Jon is quick to respond to any request and made me feel as if I was the only bride he was working with – solid attention all the way. The band was incredible – every song they learned for us, especially our first dance and the father/daughter dance was spot on – just perfect. They played every song as if it was the first song of the night – with energy, excitement and fun. We felt as if they were having as much fun as we were! If you want your guests to have a blast at your event, you cannot go wrong by hiring this talented, FUN group!

Push the Limit was AWESOME! We will definitely use them again!  My people danced their legs off and I have had nothing but rave reviews of them.  I was asked about 200 times what the name of the band was so hopefully they will see some residual gigs.
Thank  you so much for lining us up with them.  They were perfect and everyone loved that they didn’t take a break!  Kept the energy high….which I loved.

I just wanted to drop a note to let you know how much we enjoyed Fantasy at our Mad Hatter Happening Gala this past weekend. They were fantastic! We had several nice comments from our guests, everyone enjoyed them. People were out dancing and Fantasy brought an energy to the event. I enjoyed working with Jim Manley, he was so nice. Thank you to Fantasy and Downtime Productions for making our evening so much fun!”
