  • Michael and the Area 51 Musical Services are so very talented. They absolutely made our wedding night one to remember. We had so much fun with them!! Our wedding was a destination for a majority of our guests, and everyone is still reeling about the music! We witnessed every single guest in attendance (130 guests) up and dancing all night from the time they went on until the last song. Area 51’s sound is so fabulous, several passerby’s heard the music from blocks away, thought a concert was going on and even tried to enter our reception! Which was all in good fun. Michael was so easy to work with, and he even learned our first dance song. We highly recommend hiring Michael and Area 51 Musical Services for your event. Hiring Area 51 was the absolute best decision we made for our wedding, and there is no doubt will be for you too!

  • Area 51 was the best as usual! No one does it better! Your group was awesome, I loved the backdrops ... thank you so much! They are always on time, deliver more than you expect, they get everyone dancing. They have a great mix of material. You can tell that they rehearse! I fully recommend them.

  • Before our wedding, Michael promised me that he knew how to get people on the dance floor. He was right! From the minute Area 51 started playing, guests leapt out of their seats and filled up the dance floor. There literally wasn't enough room on the dance floor! This continued throughout their sets that night. I had people coming up to me throughout the night saying how great the band was, and it made me so happy that we had a band that contributed to people having such a great time. There is nothing better than looking out at a full dance floor with all of your friends and family bouncing around with big smiles on their faces and Area 51 made that happen! Michael and the band were also so helpful and easy to work with. If you want to get the most out of the money you spend on entertainment, definitely hire Area 51. You (and your guests) will not be disappointed!

  • Everybody asked where we found such an amazing band. I took all the credit. We are grateful for Area 51's expertise in making the ceremony, the cocktail hour and the reception all perfect musical experiences. They learned a new father/daughter song just for us and it was fantastic.

  • Area 51 to one of the best nights of my life!! Our wedding celebration was a blast, and it seems I wasn't the only one who thought the music was fantastic. I can't tell you how many people mentioned "the amazing band" for weeks following the celebration.

  • Michael and his band were really great for our wedding. They went out of their way to learn new songs for our first dance, father/daugher, and mother/son dances as well. They really knocked the whole thing out of the ballpark. We're thrilled how it turned out. Plus, they got the whole crowd on the dance floor! Thanks guys!

  • If you want a great wedding, Area 51 is a must! I hate to dance and my entire family ended up daning all night. I never left the dance floor! We even ended up on stage! Their sound was awesome and they made it a night to remember. A live band is worth every penny you will spend on them and Area 51 was fantastic! Highly Highly recommend!!

  • Awesome band, guaranteed to get the attendees dancing. I really appreciated the band learning a new song for my bride that I requested. The quality of the musicians and the singers was outstanding, everyone I spoke with at the party loved them. Also I used the 3-piece band to play background music during the dinner and their sound was excellent as well.You will not regret hiring these guys...
