Detroit Party Bands

Everyone, young and old, loved the band and had a blast! At the very end of the night, as we were packing up equipment, a lovely lady, who I suspect was in her 80s, stopped me to say that this was the best wedding she had ever been to and that I had done the finest job of coordinating that she had ever seen. When I told her that she made my day, she replied, "Oh no, you made my day!"
Best Detroit Swing Bands

They wanted a band that could incorporate the big band sound throughout the evening. During Mary's first conversation with her, Rebecca said, I did a lot of swing dancing in college with my friends. We just love swing dancing! One of Rebecca's friends told Mary at this Detroit wedding reception that she and her college friends spent hours taking swing lessons and watching old Fred Astaire movies to perfect their dance steps and moves.
