MIB2 made our wedding night fantastic! They are so talented, so enthusiastic, so easy to work with. I am already trying to figure out another party to throw so that I can hire them again!

All of our guests loved MIB2 and could not (and did not!) leave the dance floor all night long. I've had so many guests compliment us on our music. (MIB2 also played for our ceremony and cocktail hour).

I cannot rave enough about this band.

I cannot say enough about Men in Black 2 (MIB2). These guys were amazing. They had people on the dance floor before dinner was served and didn't stop until they were essentially forced off the stage by the venue. They killed it on our first and last dance songs and did everything we asked for and more! We had some interesting requests (my cousin worked with them on the bridal party announcements, my father/daughter dance required two different song speeds, my family planned a surprise performance for me that the band rolled right along with it, etc.). From thinking about signing the contract through to the end of the wedding night, MIB2 was responsive, extremely helpful, and seemed truly excited about making our reception everything we hoped for. We had people tell us this was "the best wedding they've ever been to" and I believe MIB2 played a large part of that. My grandmother was even rocking out! Our reception would not have been what it was without this band and I cannot recommend them enough!!

Men in Black 2 was unbelievable! They absolutely made our wedding day and did a phenomenal job! I had so many people throughout the night and the weeks following our wedding commenting on how amazing the band was. I also got many comments like "I haven't seen my husband dance like this in years!!" They were really flexible with us throughout the night on the schedule and even showed up early to help set up a microphone for our pastor (the wedding was outside and we were worried about sound). Many of our guests also commented on the fact they'd never been to a wedding with so many people constantly on the dance floor. This band was so great it seemed impossible not to be on the dance floor! They did a great job reading the crowd and adjusting appropriately. We couldn't recommend them enough!

This band was awesome. I was a little sceptical about a band, its value and how much impact it would have on the wedding and I can say absolutely that I am a convert!

We had ceremony music, cocktail hour music, dinner music and after dinner party music. It was all perfectly executed with taste and pizazz!

They added energy just when it was required and made sure our most special day was as special as it could be.

If you are unsure about bands vs DJ's then you are like I was... but they are the best and Men in Black 2 were just amazing from start to finish!

Matt - A very happy groom!

MIB 2 is the perfect wedding band. I have never seen a band so capable of bringing a reception to life. Their musical skills combined with their versatility made our reception one that was enjoyed by every guest regardless of age. The dance floor was full of life and laughter the entire night. The spectrum of music they played ranged from classic 50-60's hits, classic rock, 80's, country, and current pop hits. As the night progressed and people got more loose, the band adapted and increased the energy. Countless numbers of our guests raved about what a great band we choose.

On the admin side, the band and their manager are extremely responsive. They fielded all our questions in a timely manner and ensured that we were all on the same page before the event began. I would recommend this band to anyone looking to have a great time at their reception. They have mastered their trade and are hands down the best wedding band around.

MIB2 performed/MC'd our outdoor tented wedding in June. The services they provided were well above and beyond what we had dreamed! Not only did they learn our first dance song, but the band leader, Ralph agreed to arrange a surprise that my sister wanted to do for us. They learned another song that my sister wanted, which they played and let my sister sing it! They accommodated each and every request we had. And the best part is, EVERYONE at the wedding loved them! I got numerous compliments about how fun they were and people were saying "this is the best band I've ever heard at a wedding!" We will never forget the awesome time that MIB2 showed us. They gave us exactly what we wanted- to have a blast!!! Thank you MIB2!!!!!

MIB2 played at our wedding in Bristol, RI on Saturday June 1, 2013 - they were a blast! The entire band was friendly, had tons of energy and really played to the crowd - people danced all night long! We've had lots of guests say the band was incredible and we completely agree! Courtney Menzel & Mac Budill

This band is AMAZING!!! When my fiance and I got engaged we knew we wanted a band but we didn't know where to begin in choosing one. We asked around and everyone friend or family member we asked recommended MIB2 so we knew they were meant to be our wedding band. They made our wedding so much fun and kept everyone entertained the whole time! They were extremely professional and made our wedding day so much more special and memorable! Every guest, all ages, LOVED them!! Our favorite part was that they invited the wedding party on stage to participate, even my Dad, who usually would never go on stage, was dancing and having such a great time!! Their entertainment consultant, David Gianopolous, was so nice and extremely responsive! No matter what time of day within minutes he would respond to all of my phone calls and emails. He was amazing and because of him I was so confident everything would go smoothly. Ralph, the band leader, was awesome!!! He even videotaped my ceremony since last minute I regretted not having a videographer. If you are looking for a wedding band this is your band! They are worth every penny!

Dear Ralph,
Thank you so much for everything. We absolutely loved you guys and we have already had FOUR people ask for your information-- which we passed along. Many guests said you were the best band they had every heard at any wedding. You really made the whole night fantastic. Every single person had a blast and I really felt like with the wide array of music that there was something for everyone. One wedding guest, a teacher at Berklee School of Music was abosutely blown away. It was more than we could have ever imagined.
Thank you again!
Sincerely,
Kristen and Trevor Powers

The band is a critical part of the wedding and Men in Black ROCKED the party! It's extremely important to pick a band that can keep the dance floor packed all night, and they did just that. They played three awesome sets as well as background music for the cocktail hour and ceremony. They learned special songs that we wanted them to play at the wedding, and they put together an incredible playlist of all different kinds of music from the 70s, 80s, today and even some country!

They keep music on (using an iPod) in between sets so the dancing never stops. The song choices for the breaks were just okay, but the great songs were those performed by the live band.

During the final set, they invited the bridal party on stage with our parents and we joined the band in entertaining the guests on the dance floor. Some of my guests later told me "it was the best ending to an incredible night", "great music, great band!" so we know everyone truly had a great time.

Ralph (band leader) is great to work with and is more responsive than the agency that represents the band. I would recommend working directly with the band instead of the agency if you can.

Men in Black 2 played at my wedding last week and they were spectacular!!! Their song selection was superb and they truly sounded amazing, both instrumentals and vocals - they are one talented group of artists!! They had people up and dancing even after the salads before dinner was served. All through the night the dance floor was full and I got so many compliments on how awesome the band was throughout the night. I would definitely recommend this band to anyone!!!
They are excellent to work with leading up to the event as well...very responsive!
Awesome awesome awesome!!
