“Harry and I just made it back to Alabama and honestly we both can’t even put into words how much FUN we had thanks to the Jimmy Maxwell all made the reception and everyone was on the dance floor wanting more! Your sound, style, and ability to play almost any type of music and just kill it was AMAZING!!! The lead male vocalist was unbelievable but I have to say I sure liked the lovely ladies on both the left and right...I just couldn’t get enough...I would have danced all night to you guys playing!!! People will be talking about you guys forever! Thank you so much for everything!”
— Nancy & Harry Stewart
We want you to know that you’re the perfect corporate band. Rarely do I want to stay to the end of a dinner event because of my responsibilities in the morning. I admit I tried to leave but your music kept us coming back for more. Lots of guests never left the dance floor!
Great job and thanks again!
— Alex Brandes, CEO
