The Michael Beers Band
Having a band to play at our wedding reception was a non-negotiable for us, especially since this was one of the few decisions that was really important to Brian. We looked into many bands in the Kansas City area but unfortunately we didn't hold any try-outs for these bands à la The Wedding Singer.
That's when Michael Beers, and his namesake band, The Michael Beers Band came in to play. Our photographer Jeremy Arnold told us that they were nothing short of amazing. The fact that they could do Michael Bublé, Justin Timberlake, and Alicia Keys for the cocktail hour and then break into Beyonce, Michael Jackson, and Journey for the dance party was a key selling point. Their song list is incredible.
Michael was fantastic to work with from the moment we first contacted him. We were able to have a face-to-face meeting with him where we could tell he got a good feel for us and what we wanted. He was great in responding to my lengthy emails and handling my special requests to play Jay Z.
We received so many compliments about how much fun they were from our friends and family. It's certainly not easy to appeal to all ages and musical tastes. Thank you Michael, Marcie, and the band for making our wedding truly memorable. My only regret is that I didn't get to spend more time on the dance floor!
