  • While other reviews are about Mission Dance’s musical performance, we cannot comment on that as the pandemic prevented them from performing. Instead, this is about our business interaction with Mission Dance, which was a long, difficult and emotional taxing process. My wife wanted Mission Dance after a relative had them perform at their wedding a few years ago. Before the Covid-19 pandemic arrived, we diligently paid our deposits and the planning went smoothly with minimal contact. After the outbreak and the beginning of shutdowns, we saw a darker side to Mission Dance. Our event was for the end of May. However, due to restrictions imposed by the state in March, we were forced to reschedule. During this time, I contracted a serious case of Covid-19 and my wife, juggling my condition, her remote teaching job and attempting to reschedule a wedding had to quickly locate a new date before none would be available before 2022. As time was of the essence, we decided to secure the dat... Read more

  • Look no further! You will not find a better band. Mission Dance is amazing. They exceeded all expectations. I have now been to three weddings were they have performed so this is not a small sample size of their talent. Needles to say when it came to selecting a band for my daughters September 19 220 wedding the choice was easy. Lee and the band were incredible. They keep everyone on the dance floor with a outstanding selection of music. Lee worked closely with the bride and groom to create the set list they desired. He could not have been more accommodating. It was an incredible evening and I credit Mission Dance for the pivotal role they played in its success. They are extremely talented professionals and they will help make your wedding one to remember.

  • We had Mission Dance perform at son's wedding at Jumping Brook on 4/27/19. They made the evening. Entire wedding was dancing. Total class. Total entertainment. We had a number of out of town guests who inquired about flying to band to events in other states like OH & CO. Amazing band

  • Mission Dance was fantastic from the start to finish. When we saw them play at the the American Hotel we knew we had to book them for our wedding. They are extremely professional and so much fun!! Their communication with us and overall customer service was great. Lee met with us to go over everything to ensure our day was perfect from start to finish(music selection for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception). Our guests couldn't stop talking about them! We even had 2 couples who were at our wedding book them for their upcoming weddings in 2020 :). They know exactly how to read the crowd and get everyone on the dance floor. There wasn't a single person sitting down; EVERYONE was on the dance floor. It was incredible. That is all we could have asked for in a band for our wedding. We wanted everyone up and dancing, and they did exactly that with such ease. They have an awesome song list, and they also learned songs that were important to us as well. They made our night truly unforge... Read more

  • I cannot say enough wonderful things about lee and the entire mission dance band! They played at our wedding on December 14th and they went above and beyond our expectations. Our friends and family have not stopped talking about how great they were. The dance floor was packed from start to finish and the song selection was absolutely perfect to keep the energy going all night long! Mission dance really made our wedding a night to remember and we could not be happier with our decision to have them be a part of it! If you are still searching for a band for your wedding do yourself a favor and book mission dance, you will not be disappointed!!!

    Dear Caitlin & Kevin, Thank you so much for your kind words. I really enjoyed spending the time with your in helping to plan the wedding night. It was a beautiful night for a December wedding and the Stone House was beautiful. I remember everyone dancing and having fun. It was a perfect end to a holiday wedding, having Mission Dance play all I want for Christmas is you at the end of the night. Great idea Caitlin ! I hope you had a great time on your honeymoon in Turks and Caicos and look forward to seeing you and Kevin in the future at another wedding ! All the best and Happy New Year !

  • We had Mission Dance for our Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, and Reception at the Molly Pitcher. They DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT. If you and your fiance definitely want a band that is going to get your guests out of their seat and keep them dancing, HIRE MISSION DANCE!!! We got married almost 8 weeks ago and our guest are STILL telling us what a great band we had. Also an added bonus if you have songs that you want played that aren't on their playlist they are willing to learn it! Best Decision we made without a doubt was getting Mission dance for Our Wedding Day

    Dear Caroline and Mark, Thank you for your kind words. Every great once in a while, a bride and groom picks a wedding song that is unique and special. I have to say that "Swept Away" by Christopher Cross, was just that kind of song. We really enjoyed learning it and playing it for your wedding song. I also enjoyed spending the time with you before the wedding in helping to nail everything down. It has been a pleasure doing multiple weddings for your family, over the years. I want to wish you all the best in the New Year and hope to see you guys soon ! Lee Deedmeyer / Band leader

    Thank you Debralee, for your kind words. We truly had so much fun with your friends and family at your wedding reception ! I especially loved that you picked Forever Now, by Michael Buble to dance with your dad. I love that song and it was the first opportunity for me to sing it. It was an honor and a pleasure. I hope you had a great first Christmas and all the best in the New Year....... Lee Deedmeyer

  • Lee and the rest of Mission Dance were absolutely spectacular. They listened to our every want and need and made our wedding day absolutely perfect. Between their vocals and passion for singing and entertaining, they brought our entire room to life. If you want a perfect day, hire them. Every song they sing sounds just like it is being performed live by the original artist and they are masters at getting everyone onto the dance floor at some point!

  • Phenomenal, spectacular, fabulous, amazing. There are not enough words to describe how incredible Mission Dance was when performing at our wedding. Our dance floor was filled with people the entire night, thanks to them. They put on an amazing performance for each and every song. Everyone had a blast dancing, partying, and singing along. The band members even came out on to the dance floor to dance and sing with us! Each band member has such incredible talent. The singers and musicians sounded perfect. Mission Dance plays a wide variety of music, so they can cater to anyone's interests. We also had a musician play instrumental during our ceremony and cocktail hour. It sounded so beautiful. It really made the moments perfect at our ceremony. I cannot even tell you how many compliments I received throughout the night and days later saying how fantastic Mission Dance once. Everyone was raving about them, several people requesting business cards saying they must hire them! Highly highly re... Read more

  • As many people say, the band makes the wedding. This couldn't be more true with Mission Dance. They bring so much energy and talent to the dance floor that my friends are still talking about them to this day.

  • I’ve been to a lot of weddings but I’ve never seen people up dancing all night like they were at my wedding, and that’s due to how amazing this band is. From the minute speeches were done until the last song, the dance floor was packed the entire night. Our guests only stopped to eat dinner, at which point we were blown away by the band singing opera. I really can’t recommend Mission Dance enough. They bring an amazing energy and can cover stuff from Motown to today’s hits. They were super easy to work with leading up to the wedding as well and were willing to learn songs for us. Best money you’ll spend!!

  • There a few songs that no cover band should ever touch. Celine Dion one of them. This band? KILLED IT. We asked them to learn "My heart will go on" and "Its all coming back to me now" and I was blown away by how amazing their voices were. Some people may have been in tears. During dinner at one point I felt like I was on Broadway. My guests stopped eating because their jaws were literally on the floor. This band had us dancing the ENTIRE night. All the songs were multi-generational getting everyone on the dance floor even Grandma! Lee the band leader took much care to detail sitting down with us and planning out every single moment of the wedding from ceremony to finish. Completely seamless! My husband and I literally can't thank this band enough for giving us the wedding of our dreams, we had guests calling us the next day freaking out asking us to renew our vows ASAP to have another party. If you don't book this band you are missing out!

  • My husband and I attended the wedding of a friend, who hired Mission Dance. At the end of the night, my husband turned to me and said “I don’t care what we eat, or what I wear, but that band IS going to play at our wedding.” Mission Dance is worth every penny-they made our wedding night. We sat down together with Lee before our wedding day, to go over our music selections. It was so much more than that. Lee was so attentive to our style of music, the mood we wanted to set for the evening, coming up with awesome ideas, even collaborating on a jam with the band and my husband. They made the night unforgettable. Our guests were blown away by them. WE LOVE MISSION DANCE!

    Hi Sharon, Well it was a beautiful night under the stars for an outdoor wedding and I don't think it could have been any better. The love I saw in your family during your wedding reception was truly amazing. I loved working with you and Scott and wish you Scott and the boys all the best! Have a great 2020

  • When the Talking Heads came on, it was evident that Mission Dance was undeniably "burning down the house"... Weeks later, I still have guests contacting me, and saying that Mission Dance was, "absolutely the greatest live music I've ever seen, felt, and heard at a wedding reception!". They hit every note between the mesmerizing duets, to the electrifying guitar solos... not once leaving a lull of energy into the late night. If these guys are on your radar, don't hesitate; book them before they aren't available for your special day!
