To The Max was so, so great! They were so friendly and fun, and they kept everyone dancing. We got lots of compliments on the music from our guests! Thank you so much for all your help. I'll be sure to recommend them in the future to anyone looking for a band!!

Paul and I really wanted to send our love to you all. We had such an amazing time, and so did all of our guests all because of you! You really got everyone up to dance, and that's exactly the kind of party we wanted. The music was unreal, and you guys sounded amazing. I'm sad that it's over because we could definitely party all night all weekend with you guys around!! You made our wedding day one of the best days of our lives, for our entire family. We will definitely be watching your website to see when you're back in the area so we can come watch your amazing talents!

We had such a good time, and To the Max was definitely a part of that. We absolutely loved having them up there. I can't tell you how many complements the band got - we keep getting them even though it was 3 weeks ago! Vaneissa and John were great in the week leading up to and during the wedding, and it was really great to have them emcee'ing the whole reception. Please pass along our gratitude!

ToTheMax was so easy to work with and absolutely killed it at our wedding. They had everyone out on the dance floor and I can't tell you how many people asked where I found them and said they wanted to use them for an event!

I couldn't leave it with just the Mother of the Bride's review below - these people deserve lots of praise!!! To The Max Band was top notch - they brought energy and fun to the dance floor, so much so that everyone stayed on it the entire night! Vaneisa and John were incredible to work with and made the planning process very smooth. Thank you for such talent and for truly making it a wedding our guests will never forget!

Wow. I glanced around at one point Saturday night and thought, "Now this is a PARTY!!!!!!!! How much fun was that band?!"

So began one of dozens of similar emails I got the morning after our fundraising event with To The Max. Our party was a huge success and the event has been the talk of our small town since. I can not thank you enough for matching me with To the Max.

From my first phone call to band leader John Coley (returned promptly, as was the case throughout party planning), he and the band were warm, fun & incredibly professional. This was my first experience with hiring a live band and I was nervous! You, John, and lead singer Vaneisa were so friendly and patient as we went through the planning process. It was truly a pleasure from start to finish.

The most important thing in all of this was the band's performance on stage, and Sonny, they knocked our socks off!!! The vocal talent & charisma of singers Vaneisa & Arnold were simply beyond sensational. Combined with the powerful instrumental performances, chemistry, and really fun personalities of all the band members, the result was just the greatest live show I've ever seen! They were such a blast, but also extremely polished, and they all played and sang their hearts out. As an audience member, you felt like they were really having a ball, and their joyful presentation was absolutely contagious -- you could simply not be in the room without smiling, laughing and dancing!! All walks of life, old, young, shy, bold -- they got EVERYONE moving!

In conclusion, I would just encourage you to keep me posted on upcoming To the Max performances we might attend, and please let know if I can serve as a glowing reference for them. And I'll definitely hope to see To the Max at this time next year for our next fundraising event!
