  • Nine Mile Smile was a great addition to our wedding day! They have a wide range of music and were able to learn several new songs prior to the wedding---including a surprise song. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the band.

  • Nine Mile Smile was our band for our August 19th wedding at the Homestead and they were amazing! All of our guests have commented on how great they were. A few things that we really loved about them: - they allow you to pick 4 songs for them to learn - we gave them some tough ones to learn and they did a great job! - we had a few family members and friends that played instruments and wanted to play at our wedding, and they were very cool with allowing that. I'm pretty sure that jamming with the band was the highlight of my father-in-law's year :) - Kurt was super responsive - he would usually reply to my emails within an hour - they were very energetic and kept everyone on the dance floor. I even had a friend comment on how she's never seen that many people consistently dance throughout the night at a wedding Overall great option!

  • Nine Mile Smile rocked our wedding! They were the highlight of the party and kept the dance floor packed. Our friends and family still keep raving about them. I've never seen my elderly aunts dance so hard! LOL! Many of our guests have said they wished they had a band at their wedding. It truly was perfect. We had so much fun! BEST NIGHT EVER!

  • These guys were awesome. They BROUGHT THE PARTY and were super easy to work with. Kurtis (the band contact) was super nice and flexible leading up to the big day. Whenever I sent an e-mail, they responded quickly and were an overall pleasure to work with. I got so many compliments on my band. If you are going to get a live band, book these guys, NOW! :)

  • 9MS was phenomenal for our wedding. They were accommodating from the inception, on top of their game throughout the planning process and the day of. It seemed like each guest commented on their great performance and quality sound. They also learn 4 songs for you to play. Wonderful experience, get them booked.

  • 9Mile Smile was the perfect band for our wedding. Kurtis was always in contact and on top of all the planning aspects well ahead of the event. The band performed specific songs we requested, as well as adapted the setlist to be more aligned with the type of music we enjoy. They were the life of the party and all guests were highly praising their talents. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a live band for their event.

  • We absolutely loved having Nine Mile Smile perform at our wedding! Everyone had a great time and we received numerous compliments on how great the music and band were. Also, my husband, who is not a dancer, was on the dance floor with me almost all night. I was shocked! We had a wonderful time! Additionally, Kurtis is a breeze to work with. Super responsive and very helpful! Overall, if you like live music and having a great time dancing the night away you won't be disappointed!

  • Hiring Nine Mile Smile was one of the best decisions I made when planning our wedding. They made sure everything was taken care of and ran smoothly, and were complete professionals with their equipment set-up & sound. They do a great job at playing a variety of music, appealing to the wide range of tastes that come with a large event like a wedding. Our guests are STILL talking about how great the band was! WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

  • The one thing I really wanted to have at our wedding was a live band and Nine Mile Smile did not disappoint. They were amazing and had everyone dancing until the very last minute. Kurtis was so easy to work with from the very beginning. He answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly. I would highly recommend them.

  • We really can't say enough great things about Nine Mile Smile! Our entire wedding day was so much more than we could have ever imagined, and they had such a large part in making that happen! From the very beginning, Kurtis went WAY above and beyond with communication and answering any little question we had - and he always answered almost immediately! My father really wanted our father/daughter song to be a surprise and Kurtis was excellent with communicating with him and keeping it a secret, too! During the wedding, we could really sense the enjoyment and pride that the band had in producing great music and a great atmosphere! I have even heard rumors that the guitarist at the ceremony, Mikey, may have been so "in the moment" that he may have shed a few tears :) Afterward, Jordan and Kurtis even thought to personally THANK US for the fun night! THEY were the ones who deserved the thanks! Nine Mile Smile was worth every penny and then some! I can't give them 100 stars, but I wish I cou... Read more

  • We hired Nine Smile Smile without ever having seen them play in person. We watched a few songs online, but that was it. Throughout the planning process, Kurtis was wonderful to communicate with - he was always very quick to respond and always provided me with the information that I needed. Jordan has the most beautiful voice, and she did an amazing job with our first dance song. She also did a beautiful rendition of "Wind Beneath My Wings" for my dance with my dad. The band can play ANYTHING! My husband is a huge Dave Matthews fan, and they did a great job with the DMB song that we requested. They kept the dance floor packed the entire night! There were so many people left at the end of the night that just wanted to keep dancing, which is exactly what we wanted! We had so many of our guests say how wonderful the band was and even had people ask for their contact information to potentially hire them for their event. We could not recommend Nine Mile Smile enough for your weddin... Read more

  • Nine Mile Smile was extremely great to work with! They were extremely responsive to our requests and always remained professional. Furthermore, they can play any genre of music and it all sounds great. It was really nice of them to learn a few songs they didn't know - I would highly suggest having Nine Mile Smile play at your wedding!

  • Nine Mile Smile was an absolutely excellent wedding band! Kurtis was a pleasure to work with. He was super responsive, answered all of my questions, and even did a walk through at our ceremony site because it was outside at a personal residence and we were concerned about power issues. The reception itself was made by Nine Mile Smile. They had a ton of energy, sounded great, and kept the partying going. Our guests actually started to boo when the reception ended because everyone was having so much fun. I can't recommend Nine Mile Smile enough if you're looking for a great cover band!

  • I have to admit, hiring a band for our wedding reception was my husband’s idea and at first I was worried. I was nervous a band wouldn’t be able to entertain our guests like a DJ. Then we found Nine Mile Smile and my attitude all changed. Kurtis, our main contact, was incredibly responsive and helpful. Never did we wait longer than 24 hours for a response. Their song-list was well-rounded and included almost every song we could have wanted. I will say, the day of, they did tend to play the songs they wanted despite our requests but that didn’t seem to impact our guests experience. Nine Mile Smile had our reception timeline. Of course, things can get behind scheduled as planned. We would recommend someone continue to with communicate with Nine Mile Smile during the event to keep things moving. Live music added a different element and was a unique way to separate our receptions from others. They helped us and the crowd dance the night away!
