5.0/5.0
Working with Mike and Pressure Point was a positive experience from start to finish.

The most important component is obviously the music: these guys are incredible! We were the first of our friends to get married, and after the reception everyone said how they had to have a live band at their wedding because of how great our music was. To those of you wondering if their acoustics are as good outdoors as indoors, fear not, we had our wedding outdoors at a Winery and the sound still rocked!

We opted to have not only the full band at our reception, but for a modest additional fee keyboard for the ceremony and classical guitar/flute for cocktail hour after the ceremony - both highly recommended.

Mike was incredibly responsive to email - important for us as we were arranging the wedding from out of state. He was able to procur some wonderful lights for our outdoor dance floor on request, and also set up a great audio system for our ceremony, best man/maid of honor toasts, etc. When we accidentally left the final check at home in California, Mike was cool about us mailing it to him after the ceremony (much cooler than I would have been!).

I guess the best way to sum up our experience is to repeat what our photographer wrote on her website: "They had the best live wedding band we have ever heard!"

Thanks again to Mike and Pressure Point for making our Wedding such a special and memorable day!

These guys ROCK! Pressure Point is an incredible band. We told them we were a lively bunch and we asked the band to play accordingly. They delivered! They even had Grandma and babies dancing until the final call. They can play nearly anything and do an amazing job blending one song into the next.

We also had their guitarist do our ceremony and cocktail hour music and he was great! Highly recommend them.

They are worth every penny and more!

A New Groove is a band in Portland OR, and they ROCKED my wedding. Perfect music selection, high energy, incredible voices, and they were so easy to work with. They had everyone from the wedding party to our priest killing it on the dance floor for hours. And in between sets, they played an iPod, which went very smoothly. AND they are way more affordable than other bands. I think they are the best kept secret in Portland wedding bands. Can't recommend them highly enough. http://www.anewgroove.com/

Lynn and CM Events was great. They provided us with our dinner music of an awesome trio - the Michael Winkle Trio and then Lynn took over as dj! She was fantastic! I was so happy we chose them. She felt out the crowd and the night just flowed! We had the best time dancing. Her transition choice of Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night by the Black Eyed Peas from the Hora was so on the money! We were so glad we hired them. They made our ceremony go smoothly with sound. The Michael Winkle Trio was perfect for the early part of our reception and I even wish I could have danced a little to them. It was a great night though!

We had Pressure Point Band perform at our wedding. They were an incredible live band. The guests at our wedding continue to gush over the wonderful music that was performed at our wedding. They played a variety of music at our wedding and respected our "Must Play" and "Do Not Play" lists we presented. They added a key ingredient to our wonderful wedding day.

One additional comment: They sounded far better live than they do recorded.

Absolutely the BEST wedding band ever! Gave us much more than we paid for, were super fun & friendly, got everyone dancing right after the cake was cut! Very eager to please, even learned new songs for us, willing to do anything we wanted or needed very quickly. Was not great with recommendations prior to the wedding. Was almost half the price of other Seattle bands (drove to our Seattle wedding for free). The guests practically rioted when they stopped playing! (They had to play for an extra 2 hours!)

I CANNOT say enough good things about this band! They are so talented and entertaining - an not corney at all (like many other wedding singers we looked at). They took my wedding to a whole new level that I had never anticipated. They had everyone on the dance floor during the FIRST SONG! They ended-up staying for 2 hours longer than we hired them for because the dance floor was still packed at the end of the night. They even learned a new song for our wedding! They drove all the way up from Portland to Seattle at no extra charge and they were $2000 LESS than the Seattle wedding bands we looked at using! My husband & I both agree that hiring Pressue Point was the best-spent money of the whole wedding.
