Just wanted to let you know the Skyline Band did a great job at my daughter’s wedding.  I have played in bands for many years and for our prior three weddings we hired local musicians that I have known —- we go out to support live music regularly and have been absolutely committed to having live music at the weddings for our children. … This year we had some challenges in finding local bands that were available and/or suitable for the type of event that my daughter desired, so we investigated Skyline. … The band was stellar in every respect and contributed to a wonderful dance-filled evening.  They delivered an amazing professional experience and were easy going and pleasurable to deal with.  Our guests stayed the entire evening — a big investment, but totally worth it!
Ruben and the rest of your musicians represented you exceedingly well.

Review for Skyline Band

“Just want to say “THANK YOU” for working out our performance by Stephen Hull for last night’s Gazebo concert…..what a talented musician and entertainer! He is so talented and also has a great rapport with the audience.”

Stephen Hull at the Greenfield Gazebo Concert Series

He brought everyone together and we had the best time ever! It was an 80th celebration for my dad‘s birthday we had family and friends in from all over the country. It was simply amazing. Kevin is the best ‘entertainment‘… you can feel he is genuine and you can feel the love! Please tell him thank you from us!

Lisa Brown

OH MY GOSH!!! Kevin knows how to read a room and light it up!

Kevin Kennedy is beyond talented! So fortunate that he was doing an event in Milwaukee at the casino and had the opportunity to see him live. I’m 100% now a huge fan! It won’t matter which song he’s singing, you will love them all, especially if you are an R&B fan!


Kelly Brzenk-Smith

Barbara and Peter provided an awesome performance last night…smaller crowd (but still 150 people)!!!  The weather couldn’t have cooperated any better than it did (and guessing it also held some people back-their loss)….it was warm but a beautiful breeze throughout the evening.  Barbara and Peter were incredible – and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your time, work and effort to secure them for our Greendale Sunday Gazebo concert series.  Again, too, I’m sure they receive higher compensation than what you provided for me to pay – and with no budget to help support-truly appreciated how nicely you worked with me!

Again, thanks for Cameron Webb and Barbara and Peter….it’s been a great Summer of programming (and you’ve been a big help with that)….

Stay well!


Thanks again for a great find!

A note to say thank you for suggesting DJ Tony for the Lincoln Court condo association block party.

He did a fabulous job given the tough crowd of older guests.  Also a great job as Emcee for the Name that Tune game and really engaged everyone.

I look forward to another opportunity to potentially book him again.

Many thanks,
Kathy  – Lincoln Court Association June 2021

Thank You for Suggesting DJ Tony

Hi Michael,
I just wanted to say THANK YOU for providing the entertainment for what was a wonderful evening on Saturday, August 15th. You guys absolutely killed it — the dance floor had a sense of electricity the entire night thanks to you guys. The #1 and #2 comments I’ve heard since the wedding have been how great the band was and what the name of the band is. Everyone loved it.
I will personally continue to recommend MWO to anyone that reaches out. I can only hope to see you guys perform again!
Jack – Wedding – Westmoor Country Club Summer 2020

THANK YOU for providing the entertainment!

Velocity was a fantastic band to work with for our wedding! Their enthusiasm and spunk kept the dance floor going all night, and we appreciate the good variety of music played. We were especially grateful for their flexibility and willingness to allow some of our musician family members to join them for a couple songs. They were a great hit! We received many compliments from our guests; many saying the band made for one of the best weddings they’ve been to. Anyone looking for a fun, reasonably priced band..we’d definitely recommend! – Tien and Thomas Oct 2019 Hilton City Center MKE

Their Enthusiasm and Spunk Kept the Dance Floor Going All Night

Chris and Livin The Dream-
The dance floor was jammed with dancers for four straight hours during Livin’ The Dream’s terrific performance. No wedding celebration is complete without good music and that’s what we got. The band was at the top of their game and sounded as if they spent two weeks practicing just for our event.
Much Appreciated,
Jim and Julie (Parents of the bride) Milwaukee Country Club – Oct 2019

No wedding celebration is complete without good music and that's what we got.

Hi Michael (Michael Walters Orchestra),

Thank you very much for playing at our wedding on Saturday. The band sounded incredible and it made our night! Emily was on cloud nine singing with the band, too, so thank you for setting that up!
We’re also reaching out since we intended to give a thank you card to you and the band since you went above and beyond, but the envelope was accidentally taken to a family member’s home in a bin of other wedding items instead of to the reception as we planned. We’d like to mail you the thank you instead. Could you please provide us with your mailing address?
Thank you!
Emily & James – Madison Masonic Center – Sept 2019

The Band Sounded Incredible!

We would just like to thank you for doing such a great job last night! Everyone seemed to have so much fun.

Thank you again! Kimmy and Ryan – Aug 2019 – Brighton Acres, WI

Great job Downtown Harrison!

Just wanted to follow up with you about North Coast Orchestra. They were incredible – from cocktail hour, to dinner, to dancing – they were everything we could’ve wanted in a wedding band and more! Just wanted to provide some positive feedback and express our gratitude for such a fun, fun night. Please pass on our sentiments to the band 🙂
All the best,
Anna and Alex – Aug 2019 – Knollwood Country Club – Lake Forest IL

Everything We Could’ve Wanted in a Wedding Band and more!


The band (Velocity) MADE THE NIGHT! Of course the setting was LOVELY but the fun was provided by the music!!! All great musicians and vocalists!!! Got a bunch of stodgy white guys in their 50s out cutting the rug! Heard one comment- “danced more than in last 20 years put together!”. BRAVO and THANK YOU!
Julie and Keith – Aug 2019 – Private Res Brookfield, WI


Such a blast! We love Velocity!

Velocity was a hit. Friend and family are still raving about them 1 month later! They were easy to work with and happy to work with any requests. We had a bridal party mishap before announcing the group and they helped us stay calm and managed the situation well. They handled a bummer situation when the flu hit the bridal party SO WELL. Finally, their lead singer was caught in a storm, and he couldn’t make out wedding. They had another dude fill in and he killed it!! We really couldn’t be happier. – Caroline – Wedding July 2019


Such a blast! We love Velocity!

Hi Nancy,

I wanted to reach out and say thank you so much for the amazing activities that you and your team provided us on Saturday for our annual company picnic. Everyone had so much fun and there were a lot of smiling faces the whole day.

Your staff was very professional and polite, they did a great job were a pleasure to have there helping out. We really appreciate all of your hard work, and we hope to see you again next year for our 2020 company picnic!

Thanks again!

We used ACA to find a DJ in the Richfield, WI area for our son’s wedding. They suggested a couple and we went with DJ Chris. He was professional, fun, easy to work with and kept the dancing going all night long. Thanks Chris and ACA for making this a special reception!

  • Renee (MOB) July 2019 – Terrace 167

Thanks Chris and ACA for making this a special reception!

I personally did not have a chance to express how FABULOUS each and every member of the band was at my sons wedding this past weekend. Please pass on my sincere appreciation and gratitude for making it the best wedding ever and certainly the BEST wedding band ever. Platinum was incredible. John and Kimberly loved dancing to the music not to mention their friends and family. Thank you!!!!
Kathy MOB – Grain Exchange July 2019

Platinum was Incredible

Good morning, Jay,

Ken and I would like to thank you again for providing entertainment and ambiance for our family party on Saturday at North Shore. Everyone enjoyed listening to you and even singing along on some of the songs.   I think our guests felt very comfortable visiting and stayed a little longer than they normally would because of the atmosphere in the room that you created.
Thank you, again for your beautiful music.

Guests Stayed Longer Because of Jay

Matt (ACA) and Jason (Velocity),

Meg and I just wanted to thank you both for the amazing time that we and our guests had with Velocity at our wedding! The night went off perfectly for us, and Velocity was such great partners to us throughout the night. I cannot even count how many guests proactively told us during the night and after that they absolutely loved the band. So again, thank you!
Matt – thank you specifically for being so accommodating and responsive throughout the planning process.
We definitely will spread the word about how great Velocity is!

You do not need to go to Chicago to hire a band when you have “Livin The Dream” right here in the Milwaukee area. They were extremely easy to work with, learned the bride and grooms wedding song as if they had been performing it for years, excellent communication, and most importantly, created an energy throughout the entire evening leaving our guests wanting more. The feedback I heard from our guests have been tremendous. Thank you, “Livin The Dream” for being a HUGE part of our wedding reception’s success!

You do not need to go to Chicago to hire a band when you have "Livin The Dream" right here in the Milwaukee area!

“I can tell you now that LTD was a fabulous addition to Saturday night! The crowd adored their music and the dancers who were there at the end absolutely did not want to let them go.
The event itself was extremely successful and LTD put the perfect cap on the evening. So, please thank everyone from the band and I’m sure we will be able to work together in the future.”.
Sharon Lynn Wilson Center 2019

LTD was a fabulous addition to Saturday night!

ACA DJ Tim received a nice review posted on The Knot, from bride and client Courtney!

Courtney: “I really liked DJ Tim Synold from ACA! We wanted to have mainly 90’s, early 2000’s, and guest requested music played at our wedding and he did just that! He was very friendly and punctual.”

Great work, DJ Tim!



Great work, DJ Tim!

The band (Livin The Dream) was amazing!  Loads of comments on how good you were.

Everyone had such a great time and that couldn’t have happened without your flexibility and great music.

Great job!

Kind regards,

Dear ACA ,

On behalf of our corporation, I would like to thank you for all that you did to ensure our 2018 Holiday Party was a SUCCESS! Your willingness to answer any questions I had was much appreciated! Also, thank you for being so friendly through out the planning process. Your enthusiasm always makes me smile! We appreciate your business and look forward to working with you further.

All the Best,

Kaitlyn H.

We are proud to service your Holiday Party!

The Jazz Trio and the Arcade/Casino/Table games were all a hit! The Jazz Trio arrived early for set-up, which is always appreciated. The arcade games were ready to go when I arrived at the Marriott and the table games with the dealers arrived around 4:45pm, which was impressive as I did not think they would arrive until 7:00pm. Throughout the night, both the Jazz Trio gentleman and the table game dealers were very friendly and accommodating!

Thank you again for ensuring the 2018 Holiday Party was a success!

All the Best,

Kaitlyn/Corporate Client

The Jazz Trio and the Arcade/Casino/Table games were all a hit!

Our wedding was great and all, pretty dress, beautiful decor, all that stuff, but I don’t think anyone in attendance remembers ANYTHING except for the band. Seriously, my husband’s godmother had to be physically removed from the venue by her husband because they needed to leave and she couldn’t stop rocking out. My little nephew was so inspired that he actually thought he invented the air guitar. Velocity kept the evening flowing, kept the energy pumping, and could not possibly have been more fun. The planning leading up to the event was professional and easy as well. My husband and I are seriously considering getting a divorce just so we can have another wedding with this band. – Loretta and Michael (Sept. 1 2018 Delafield Fish Hatchery)

Velocity Was Ridiculously Good

North Coast Band –
I wanted to thank you and the rest of the group for the fabulous music you provided at  the wedding last night. You all just nailed the ambiance Caitlin and Jake were hoping for! Also, it was so wonderful that you learned and sang the Irish Blessing- beautiful!!! Such a lovely moment for us all. 

We would definitely recommend your band for other events- heck, I have 2 more daughters to be married so we may be seeing you again 🙂

Thank you again,

Jane – Mother of the Bride Oct. 2018 – Villa Terrace, Milwaukee, WI

Thank you for the Fabulous Music You Provided!

NCO was the very first thing we booked when we were planning our wedding bc I wanted a KICK ASS BAND and let me tell you, The North Coast Orchestra nailed it!!! Not only were they incredible to work with throughout the planning process, but they also took time to learn a few extra songs we wanted with no cost or hassle. They had the party going all night long and I am still getting compliments on how KICK ASS they were! I would get married all over again 1000 times and have NCO be the band – they KILLED IT!” -Erin and Dan Aug 2018

The North Coast Orchestra Nailed It!!!

I just wanted to let you know how much everyone enjoyed Marr’lo. He hit it out of the park with his beautiful voice, his accommodation of “singers” from the audience, his easy spirit and his wide range of songs.
Everyone at the party was astonished at his talent.
Thank you once again for your recommendation!!!!!
😊Lisa M. – Private Party Aug. 2018

Marrlo was Awesome!!!!!

Platinum was AMAZING! Their songs were so great and they were so accompdating with our requests. They made the event so personal and impressive! – Olivia Harlan (ESPN) and Sam Dekker (NBA), Door County July 2018

They made the event so personal and impressive!

Truly an awesome band (Platinum). I think our wedding guests were shocked at the quality of this band. The dance floor was never not packed and the DJ they work with was great too. Literally no issues at all. The band had a fair price, were super easy to work/coordinate with and they even had a cool style on stage. Would book this band every time! YOU. WILL. NOT. REGRET. IT. – Lewis and Renee – Bishop’s Bay WI Aug 2018

Would book this band every time!

“You can’t go wrong booking this band (Livin The Dream). At our recent wedding, the dance floor was packed from the first song to the last. They went out of their way to personalize our experience and create a memorable reception. The vocals are amazing and the musicians top notch!!” – Nan Gardetto (Gardetto Snacks) July 2018

You Can't Go Wrong with LTD!

Hiring PLATINUM was the absolutely best thing we did! The excellent live music made everyone have such a great time. Our guests filled the dance floor from the first song until the last. The band was so great to work with and helped with mics for speeches and were just so nice. Everyone commented how much fun they had dancing to live music. Nothing compares. Save money somewhere else. They are worth every dime! – Amy (MOB) Black Pig – Berkshire, Sheboygan WI July 2018

Nothing Compares to Live Music!

This was the best thing I could have done for our wedding. The band kept in contact with us, made sure they understood exactly what we wanted for music. Learned a song we wanted that wasn’t typically on their play list and were 100% accommodating. Our guests continually came up to us and told us that we had the best wedding they ever attended. I know they were referring to the awesome band. Even the bar tenders were rocking!!!! Even the over 60 crowd danced the night away until the very end! I would highly recommend the North Coast Orchestra. – Tami and Tony – Milford Hills July 2018

Even the bar tenders were rocking!!!!

This group (Livin the Dream) was so much fun! Being a music teacher, there were a lot of musicians present as guests and they all commented about how much the live band and the quality of the performance really made the night special. I was especially excited to get a group of my friends on stage to perform “Africa” with the band! The best surprise was Jesse showing up to sing! We went to college together! I am blown away by the talent in the band and could not have asked for a better group of musicians to be a part of our special day. – Angela and Chris – Milwaukee County War Memorial June 2018

Livin The Dream was so much fun!

We had Dann Smith​ as our DJ on June 16th, 2018 and he was AMAZING! He was responsive and very helpful leading up to the wedding and let me make a list of “must play”, “like to hear” and “don’t play” songs and helped me come up with different games and songs for everything. At the wedding, he took complete control and told me not to worry about anything which was very nice because it’s a stressful day! He came and got me when it was time for the special dances, the bouquet toss, and the garter toss so that I didn’t have to think about anything and could just have fun! He was the right amount of serious/professional/funny/goofy and my guests loved him as well! Dann also DJs for my Childhood Cancer Camp every year so you know he has a heart of gold as well : – Amanda

We had Dann Smith​ and he was AMAZING!

Amazing talent and professionalism! Fantastic performances by Livin The Dream during pre-ceremony, ceremony, post ceremony and post dinner party. Dance floor was packed the entire evening. Every band member is to be commended for their top notch skills. Thank you! – Richard and Nan, Lake Park Bistro July 2018

Every band member is to be commended for their top notch skills

“I have only positive things to say about our experience with Platinum. Matt was extremely helpful in the weeks leading up to the wedding. He was responsive and incredibly accommodating with our song requests. And the night of the wedding Platinum was a HUGE hit. We had a jazz trio for our cocktail hour and dinner, which was wonderful. And then the full band set up for dancing after dinner. We had three straight hours of dancing—the floor was packed for the entire time! Our guests are still talking about how great the music was at our wedding. And the energy Platinum brought was amazing. They helped make our wedding the most memorable weekend! 10/10 recommend to anyone. ” – Patsy and Charlie – Horseshoe Bay Golf Club June 2018

Platinum was a HUGE hit!

I received so much positive feedback from the guests at the wedding re: the band (Livin The Dream) for the dancing portion of the evening.
Nan was so happy with Barbara and what she did with the two songs that she wrote for Richard/the kids.
Chris was a delight to work with and it was great to get to know Anthony a little better, as well. The whole group did a great job reading the crowd and making the ceremony and reception sound beautiful.
Thanks for all of your hard work. We appreciate it and I know Nan & Richard do, as well.
We’ll look forward to working with you again soon!

“Wanted to thank you for everything Saturday night. You guys (Platinum) killed it!! It was like a real life concert. Everybody during the evening and through texts messages on Sunday was raving about the band. Thank you guys for truly putting on a show. You made our night memorable for everyone! Thank you!” – Megan and Scott Tolzien (NFL Quarterback)

Thank You Platinum for Truly Putting On A Show

Bobby (Bobby Way and The Fabulous Wayouts). I wanted to Thank you and the band for the great performance you
gave at Lauren’s wedding Saturday. The number of people that stayed and
danced all night was amazing. They were having so much fun, mainly due to a
great band playing great music! You and I talked about how bands may
becoming a lost art form. Saturday night showed what a mistake that would
be. Your lucky you have such an experienced group that have stayed with you
a long time. We have seen you play at least a half dozen times and your
consistently very good. And you were great at both our kids weddings. Please
tell the other members of the group how much Char and I appreciate all their
efforts. You help’d make it a great wedding. I will always recommend your
group to anyone I talk to thinking of live music. See you at Summerfest or
one of festivals you play at this summer.

Thanks again for everything. Ken H. 6.2.18 Concourse Hotel Madison, WI

Great Band Playing Great Music

“On Tuesday, February 6th, 2018 I saw some of the biggest smiles from our residents that I have ever seen in my almost 7 years as the Service Coordinator at Hadley Terrace Apartments.  Those big smiles and true joy are all due to Community Projects for Seniors.  Jeffery, his amazing staff, and volunteers have constantly supported our residents with everything from a hot meal on the holidays to special outings.  On Tuesday, February 6th, Jeffery onnected our residents with attentive staff who aided in a snack, goodie bags, and a fantastic musical performance by “Special K”.  This was one event that none of my residents will stop talking about.

The ability to make a mostly forgotten population feel complete and special is something that Jeffery Hansen and his loyal staff continue to do within the older adult population in Milwaukee.   This organization is truly a blessing and I personally feel so honored that Community Projects and Hadley Terrace have maintained such a great relationship.”

I want to thank you so very much for getting this event together!  It could NOT have been a bigger hit with all the residents that attended!  They will NOT stop talking about Kevin K, the awesome music, and the wonderful staff that came!   Thank you again!!” -Colleen, Community Projects for Seniors

They will NOT stop talking about Special K!

We had Dann as our DJ for our wedding on December 30th. I met him at a bridal show and really liked his sense of humor, but also appreciated how much he put me at ease. He really made me feel like his sole purpose the day of the wedding was taking care of things for us and making sure we were relaxed. It was the same way the day of our wedding. He called me a few days before to run through all of the information that we gave him and confirm any final questions (and relax me a bit!), and then he checked in with us before the reception as well to put our minds at ease and let us know how the night would go. He was so helpful, kind, and professional throughout our whole wedding. I trusted him completely to do his job and he made sure not only that we were happy, but that all of our guests had a great time. I would HIGHLY recommend him! We also booked our photo booth through ACA, and our guests had a great time with that as well. There was a green screen backdrop and tons of props, and now we have a photo book of memories from the best night of our lives. Thank you Al, Dann, and everyone else at ACA!

Hi Louie,

Jenny Thiel was amazing as always; her performance of Santa Baby was awesome!!!

Platinum was by far the highlight of the night….they really put on an amazing show!!!!   Matt was fun and easy to work with, plus all band members were professional, fun and extremely talented.

Thank you again for providing wonderful talent for our party!

Merry Christmas!

I wanted to writer and thank you for connecting us with DJ Paul for our wedding on 9/30/17. He (Paul) was a GREAT DJ!!! He was on time and super friendly. He played all the music we requested. He was great with working with our event coordinator and our first song went off perfectly. I wanted to share this with you. I will recommend him to anyone that needs a DJ and wants a quality person that will elevate an event.
Keith – Sept 2017

Paul was a GREAT DJ!!!

We are SO thankful for you and the band (Velocity).  You were absolutely incredible at our wedding.  Having eleven musicians made it sound HUGE and everyone’s playing was super tight.  Most of my conversations with friends and family during the reception were about how great you were.  My friend has been to 66 weddings in the past five years (I can verify this) and said you were the BEST wedding band of all.  I appreciated that you played our entrance music even though I forgot to send you the downloaded song!
I would especially like to commend you for the ceremony music.  The versions of “Sunday Kind of Love,” “That’s How Strong My Love Is,” “Nothing Can Change This Love,” and “Something” were utterly perfect.  I told Lindsay’s mom seconds before we all walked down the aisle that it was just how I dreamed it.  I wanted it to be soulful and classic and it was just that.
The four singers shined in different ways throughout the evening.  I wanted to call out exceptional performances of “Sweet Child of Mine,” “Shout,” “Tennessee Whiskey,” “How Will I Know,” “American Girl,” and one of the best versions of “Into the Mystic” I’ve ever heard.  I’ll be sure to recommend you to other friends and family members, and once again, THANK YOU!
Dan – Pfister Oct. 2017

BEST wedding band of all!

We were so thrilled with the quality of this band! They have it all…talent, great music selection, variety of voices, I could go on and on. The night was unforgettable!

The band (Livin The Dream) was great!!! The dance floor was full most every song from beginning to the end of the evening. We got so many comments and compliments from our guests – They loved them.
From all the weddings I have worked at Whistling Straits I know how important good live music is to a successful party, LTD really made the night happen.
I can’t imagine what the event would have been like had they not been there, so kudos to the band.
Thank you so much for the wonderful experience you and your band provided us on a very special occasion.
Take care and look forward to seeing you in the future.

I cannot thank you all (Velocity) enough for such an incredible experience on Friday! Jason was amazing to work with and the timeline was seamless. The Jazz band during dinner was unbelievable! I loved them so so much! We are still getting messages from guests asking who our band was and complimenting us on such an amazing dance experience. Our guests inundated the dance floor from the minute the band came on- it was pretty awesome to watch everyone’s expressions with each new song, they were blown away by Velocity and so were we. Thank you a million times over for making our night perfect!

All the best,

The band, Livin The Dream, did an amazing job.  I got an incredible number of compliments about the band and their sound.  One of the guests has a daughter that she hopes gets engaged within the next month, and she told me your band will be her #1 choice for her daughter’s wedding.  The band is always the element of any wedding that people remember the most, and your band really delivered.

Thank you so much for an incredible evening.

We cannot thank you enough for the magnificent music you provided, not only at Carly and Brad’s wedding, but for all three Freedman weddings.  It has been an absolute delight and pleasure working with you.  You captured exactly what Carly and Brad wanted in their music and it was completely perfect.
We loved your acknowledgement at the very last dance for a Freedman wedding!
Thank you for everything you have done to enhance our weddings and dreams come true.

Oh what a night! The sounds of Dynasty were awesome at our dance party for 100+ guests. 
People have not stopped talking about the professional and varied sounds of your top notch group.
Through swing, jitterbug, rock classics, R&B and pop, Dynasty did not disappoint.
Heard all night were comments to me about the soulful music: “Great band.” “Where did you find the awesome band?” “Who are these guys?”
I really appreciate your attention to customizing the sets for the range of our musical interests.
You exceeded all of our expectations with the inclusion of Ella Fitzgerald and Buddy Holly requests.
Thanks again to you and the entire band for making our night special.

Don for Dynasty

Thank you guys so much for ROCKING our wedding and making it such a great time! We are incredibly happy that we chose you to be the life of our party and will be telling all of our friends to use you for their events! Also, a huge shoutout to Sam. Our guests keep complimenting your keyboarding performance at the ceremony!! Our guests loved you all and said how amazing North Coast Orchestra performed! 5 PLUS stars to you guys

Best band ever! Hired these guys (Platinum) for my wedding two weeks ago. I did not leave the dance floor and neither did the guests. Not only they but they were so flexible. I’m a musician myself and they let me play and sing a song with them. Such a cool moment. I’d recommend them to anyone/everyone.

Gregory said (of Platinum)…
As father of the bride paying for the wedding at Whistling Straights on 7/29/17, this band was worth every penny. Professional, great quality and quantity, music to make everyone get on the dance floor and stay there, and very easy to work with for cocktail music, dinner music, and the reception/dance music. I would highly recommend this band and certainly will use it again for my next daughter’s wedding. Everyone complimented me on my choice of bands–they should have been complimenting Platinum. Matt Anton manages the band and I was very comfortable with him throughout the entire process. Well Done.

Greg, Father of the Bride

We got more compliments on Diamond than anything else. I’m still hearing from people how great you all were. THANK YOU for making it such a fun celebration for everyone there. You really made the day perfect and so, so special. Especially with the improv “Eye of the Tiger!” One of the highlights of the night. If anyone we know is planning a wedding in the area, we’ll be recommending you for sure. Sending you and the rest of the band the biggest hug from our mini honeymoon!

We just had MWO as our wedding band 2 weeks ago and cannot stop thinking about how fun they were! They made the entire night of our wedding so fun for all of the guests. We loved the selection of songs that they came up with given very little guidance from us. When it comes to everything that has to be planned for a wedding, the last thing we wanted to do was have to create a playlist for them. We sent a small list of “please don’t play” and a few requests and they did an amazing job! We had so many guests on the dance floor who stayed all night long until the very end who commented that the band was the reason they partied until after midnight. They’re so incredibly talented that some of our guests said the band covers sounded just like the real songs! Thanks again for everything MWO! – Amanda Waite July 2017

Thank you for your email. North Coast Orchestra was fabulous!   They did a great job keeping the dance floor packed all evening – just as you had promised.  All age groups danced and had a great time.
We have received many compliments on the band.  Many  of the young friends of Maggie and Clint said they were the best wedding band they have ever heard!  And most importantly, Maggie and Clint said they were great and made the reception so much fun!!
Thanks for everything.  I would highly recommend North Coast Orchestra.  As you may remember, the bride and groom were upset that I hired a band, as they wanted a DJ.  Now, they realize how fabulous it was to have live entertainment at their wedding. Once and a while, Mom’s are right about a few things…..and, even better, hear those words!!
Best Regards,

Hello Matt,
We cannot thank you and PLATINUM enough for all you did for us. I can’t tell you how many times we have been asked by people for your name and contact – hope something comes your way because of it. Everybody has been telling everyone that was the best wedding ever, BWE for the whatever crowd. The people who run the resort, and they are on their third generation, keep talking about it. Kim, the owner, said “we have never had a band like that before” and that is a lot of weddings in 70 years! You are the talk of the town, both here and with the grooms family in the Milwaukee area.
The best part about all of you is that you all seem to be real nice people and we appreciate that more than anything. We hope that you felt the same working with us. It would be great if the opportunity would arise to work with all of you again. God’s blessings to all of you!!!

Platinum had an amazing performance during our wedding reception — literally the dance floor was never not full (which is a brides worst fear!). I am still receiving compliments on how awesome they were. They played a great mix of oldies, newer songs and many more — truly did a fantastic job. We would recommend them to anyone! – Taylor and Brian

Just getting back to you about our party last Saturday night at Blue Mound.  The band was terrific and we got a lot of compliments.  There were several people who asked about where we got the band and we passed along your contact info to them.

We would like to thank you for the wonderful music you provided for our wedding. The ceremony was lovely and the 3 piece band was amazing! (Even though we only got to hear a couple songs I know our guests loved it)

DJ Paul did a very good job for us on Saturday evening. I think 80% of the attendees were on the dance floor at any given time. Pretty amazing!


Thanks again for connecting us!  Mark

Dear Dave (DJ’s Dave and Chris)-

You are a wonderful DJ!. Thank you for providing all the sounds at our party last September at Horseshoe Bay. You had all ages dancing and there WAS a great age range. It was such fun to see, not only the short people, but the grownups as well, on their feet and on the dance floor loving the music, We even found a tiny pair of socks shed by an enthusiastic little “Cinderella”!

Many, many thanks! It worked so well. Kind regards, Patricia

“We just wanted to send an email to thank you and the entire (North Coast) Orchestra for a fabulous entertainment package on Saturday evening! We have heard so many great comments about the music and how fabulous it was. Some of our local friends asked us if you were from Chicago, thinking you must be to have been so terrific – you sure showed them, didn’t you!!

I know you worked with the bride to learn the songs she requested for first dance, Father-Daughter, and Mother-Son. You made her so happy and they all sounded spectacular!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!”

A huge thank you to you and the team at North Coast Orchestra! You guys rocked the house and made our wedding party one for the ages. Our family and friends were so impressed by the quality of music and your professionalism. We couldn’t have asked for a better band!

The (North Coast) orchestra at our daughter’s wedding reception last night was fabulous! Everyone loved the music. It was EXACTLY the mix of music that we wanted. We heard rave reviews all night long. It certainly looked to us like our guests in every age group were having a wonderful time dancing. We are so happy that you were available and that we booked you for the event!

Thanks so much for the great job at our wedding this past Saturday. We loved the music as did our guests. You helped make it a very special event.


I wanted to take a moment to thank ACA Entertainment and Dann Smith for providing me, my groom, and my wedding guests with spectacular DJ services. Dann, you were so accommodating and perfectly sweet the entire evening. I appreciate that you read the crowd and gave them what they wanted! It made me so happy to see everyone dancing throughout the entire reception. This wouldn’t have been possible without you! Thank you so much for being a part of my special day and making it so much fun for everyone!


I just wanted to let u know that you MADE the party last night!! Everyone loved the music I would recommend you any day!! Thanks again the night was amazing and sorry to keep u up soooo late!!


Thank you so much for playing for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We loved your music and willingess to please. We received a number of compliments about your music and how it made a difference for the party. If I ever have an opportunity to host an event or offer a suggestion for a musical group, I will certainly pass your name on as a recommendation.


The band just played our event and they were awesome. They are professional and know how to engage a crowd. The band brought a youthful energy that kept the crowds attention. I would highly recommend Blue Light Scene for your event. Thank you BLS.
