What a wonderful and professional band! This was the most effortless brush with perfection I have ever experienced. I didn’t have to do a thing but select your band. You all arrived on Saturday night and performed as if you had read our minds as to what music we had imagined for our daughter’s wedding! All of the song choices were superb and so well suited for our guests. From the first dances right to the very end of the evening, all of the music was perfectly selected and very much enjoyed. And I so appreciate the professionalism with which you announced the various goings on during the evening. It was a very special touch to have you performing the emcee duties throughout the evening. It is hard to choose a favorite song, but when your horn section started the intro for Crazy in Love, I expected Beyonce to come out onto the stage! And your performance of Georgia for the Father and Bride dance was beautiful! The bride loved Love Shack. The list goes on, from At Last to Don’t Stop Believing…you are all just wonderfully talented. Thank you so much for setting the tone for an evening that went from elegant to fun. We could not have asked for more. All of our guests were very impressed and said they had not had so much fun dancing in many years. Kudos to Drive Time and best of luck to you all for continued success!

All of the guests were so happy with them as well and were talking about how amazing last night was.

We were excited to hear this band and the hospital Auxiliary Gala Committee asked Drive Time to be the band for the Annual Spring Gala and Hospital Benefit.  We were not disappointed.  The more than 350 patrons danced until the music stopped when the city ordinance required us to end our event, but we could have danced all night.  It was easy to plan with Mack whose hometown demeanor is sincere and charming.  We found the band members to be professional both on and off stage.  We look forward to having Drive Time back for our Gala in 2014.

How great it is to be able to book a band that consistently over delivers. Drive Time are assured to be a crowd pleaser  for any event. Outstanding musicianship,  a play list that leaves no genre untouched, and a genuine commitment to performance insures that when this act leaves the stage attendees are still wanting more. Whether it be a concert, private reception or a corporate event you can be assured that Drive Time will set the right mood and tone .
