  • I have been a Wedding Planner/Coordinator in the Seattle area for over thirty years now and have planned more weddings than I can count, some of them low key and others very high profile. From a Planner’s perspective there are two vendor types, the back-end, which includes the catering, linens, dishes, bar and other rentals and the front-end, which is typically the band, florist and other entertainment. While all are equally important it is the band that drives the energy of the reception and the Michael Benson Band is by far the top band in Seattle. Michael and his band understand the flow of a wedding, know what music to play and when to play it and he keeps the dance floor packed. The variety of his music is unsurpassed and he will keep the over 50 crowd as equally entertained as the 20 something people at your wedding. Michael and his band are super entertaining, super fun and he is a pleasure to work with but by no means should you take just my word for it. Please look... Read more

  • Michael was fantastic to work with and I really appreciated them playing for our wedding. People just danced the night away and even danced during the cocktail hour after the ceremony. If you want q truly professional band to play your wedding this is it. At the time of hire we had a a little sticker shock but would not hesitate to hire them again as they provide the full service and so professional. The lead singer in Michael's absence used to sing back up for names you would know!

  • While not the cheapest band for hire, we "hit a home run" hiring the Michael Benson Band - they were outstanding!

  • With all the many fine bands there are to choose from in New York, some of my friends were puzzled when I flew a band in all the way from Seattle for my daughter's wedding. But I had heard the Michael Benson Band play, and from that night on, I knew that when my daughter got married, that band would be my choice. Every band member is a skilled instrumentalist, and together they pack a bigger sound that you would think five people could possibly produce. They are equally at home playing jazz classics over dinner, or playing rock classics for dancing. Their playlist of hundreds of songs encompasses tunes for every age and taste. Most importantly of all, they genuinely enjoy themselves. Their enthusiasm helps get everyone out on the dance floor and gives the evening an indelible air of joy and celebration. Bandleader Michael Benson is an excellent vocalist as well a master at the keyboard. He is also well-spoken, lively and upbeat, which means he is a superb master of ceremonies-not... Read more

  • When my daughter told my husband and I that she was officially engaged, we told her that there was one non-negotiable item in planning the wedding---she had to have live musicians. When the couple found The Michael Benson Band, the bride and groom knew that live music was the right decision. They had gone to listen to many of the local bands, but felt that Michael's band was the best of the best. When Michael's Band played at the wedding, the dance floor stayed crowded throughout the night until the last song. That is how much energy the band infused into the guests. All the guests were enjoying great music and lyrics and just having a good time in general. Michael Benson's band can play anything. For example, the bride was raised in Texas, so Michael was asked to play the Cotton Eyed Joe. The band had never heard of the song, but Michael was game to learn it and did learn it----and the band nailed it. As the song began, the guests donned their white cowboy hats and hit the da...

  • Michael Benson Band is amazing! They are so professional and great at what they do. If you are deciding between a band and a DJ, go with a band - and go with Michael Benson. It brought our guests whole wedding experience to the next level. MBB did our ceremony piano music, dinner background music, and reception/dance music. I wouldn't change a thing! By far the best wedding band in Seattle.

  • It's hard to describe exactly what the Michael Benson Band brings to your wedding. Along with being totally professional, there is just a je ne said quois about them - they know how to bring the party! They are worth every single penny that you will spend on them - their versatility and enthusiasm is enough to create a truly one-of-a-kind wedding experience. For those who worry about not having all the songs that a DJ would have at their disposal, their repertoire is absolutely phenomenal. If by chance there is a song you really want that they don't play, you can request to have it played during the set breaks so you can be sure it will come on. For me, the music was a huge part of the wedding experience because I really just wanted everyone to dance and have a good time and with the MBB it was everything I could have hoped for. There's a reason they have been consistently voted the best wedding band in Seattle and I recommend them 1000% to everybody who can make it work for their budg... Read more

  • Amazing - everything everyone says is true. They are busy and booked for a reason. We loved every minute of every song that they played and people all email or tell me about how mesmerized they were by his repertoire and talent. It made our wedding night and I would not hesitate to raise your budget, change your date, book this band!

  • AMAZING! everyone is still talking about how awesome this band was. Michael was a dream to work with. i wasnt the slightest bit worried about anything with them. During his breaks he would come find me to make sure the band was playing what we wanted to hear. i cant say enough great things about this band. They are so good our friends booked them the very next day for their wedding next year.

  • Having a live band is key at a reception. All of our guests were so impressed with the band and had a great time dancing. When we look back on our wedding day, we always think of the band and how entertaining they are. They are pricey but your wedding comes down to entertainment for your guests. If you have good entertainment, your wedding will be remembered by all.

  • We knew from day one we would hire a live band, there was no question about it. We searched websites after website and listened to sound bites after sound bites - - And then we found the Michael Benson Band - - These dudes are seriously amazing. Their talent crosses every genre of music. Our reception was a little bit of Oldies, Sambas, Blues, to Eminem, Madonna, and JT. Guests didn’t have a choice to sit – and they haven’t stopped talking about how wonderful the music was throughout the evening. We also had specific music we wanted to walk down the aisle to – no problems there,the MBB learned our requested songs and everything went off without a hitch. Thank you so much to the MBB, you guys literally ROCK!

  • Michael Benson Band was extremely professional, accommodating and fun! Michael and his band definitely helped turn our wedding into a party. Michael checked in with myself, the groom and father of the bride throughout the night to make sure they were playing what we wanted and I never had any concerns with what they were playing or doing. Even during breaks they put on music in the background that fit in well with what they had previously been playing.

    HI Stephanie, I really appreciate your kind review! Thanks for taking the time to write it, and for giving us the opportunity to help you celebrate! With warm wishes, Michael
