Thank you to Michael Walters and MWO for helping make our daughter's wedding such a special event. Their music was outstanding and they had everybody dancing from start to finish. My daughter really appreciated that they took the time to learn her favorite song for her first dance, and by the way, it sounded like the band had been performing it for years! Many of our guests said it was the best wedding band they had ever heard!! I could not agree more! Thank you again for being so easy to work with, and providing such outstanding entertainment

I could not be happier with the Michael Walters Orchestra! They exceeded any expectations my wife and I had for our wedding. They were extremely professional throughout the entire process (planning the wedding, changes that came up, setting up, the actual music, etc, everything was top notch). I have already recommended this band to several of my friends and would strongly encourage anyone who is getting married in the midwest to work with them. They were far and away the best value of any vendor used for my wedding, in addition to providing the best quality of service. Again, I would strongly recommend the Michael Walters Orchestra to anyone!

MWO has been a staple for all of our business and private parties and celebrations for many years! We're not sure how, but each time we use them, they reinvent themselves and get better and better! Whether it is a jazz trio for a cocktail reception, a pianist and singer for our annual holiday party or the unbelievable orchestra that "rocked the house" for our son's wedding, this band is second to none! They accommodated all the bride and groom's requests and the dance floor was packed from the first song to the last! We are still receiving calls and text messages from family and friends raving about them. Thank you MWO for making the wedding an event to remember!

MWO is an amazingly talented group of musicians and professionals. Their extensive repertoire and on-stage charisma was the perfect compliment to my husband and my wedding day. Our guests continue to comment on the incredible entertainment they provided! I took comfort hiring such seasoned performers: they worked with us to customize our song selection and even made wedding party introductions. I cannot recommend their services enough to any nearly-weds looking to hire a band for their wedding day.

The Michael Williams Orchestar played at my daughter's wedding, and they were excellent! They had the dance floor jumping all night with music for us "old Folks" - Motown, disco, etc.- and for the 20-somethings in the crowd - Adele, Beyonce, etc. We couldn't have asked for a better band. I would highly recommend them for anyone who wants to have a fun-filled evening!

As the mother and father of the bride , we cannot say enough about the OUTSTANDING quality of the music at our daughter's wedding!!!!! Mike Walters and the band were pure pleasure from start to finish...they were the perfect music and sound tech for our ceremony ...and the enjoyable background to our cocktail hour and the greatest fun for us and all of our guests to dance to!
Mike followed everything we asked of him and made the transitions of the evening seamless!
He and the band MADE US LOOK GOOD! Everyone we have come into contact with has said what a great
fun time they had...and the band had so much to do with that!
Thank you Mike and ALL!!!!

We couldn't have been more pleased with the MWO. After seeing them play at a friends wedding, we decided we had to have them perform at our New Years Eve Wedding! We already had a deposit down and a different band booked. We had such a blast dancing to them at our friends weddind and were so impressed, that we canceled the previously booked band and immediately booked the MWO.

The MWO traveled out of town for our wedding. They came in a day before, putting our minds at ease, as the weather forcast was calling for a snow storm. Their service and accommodations were completely over the top! They were flexible and made sure every song we wanted played they could perform. There professionalism and showmanship was superior to non and they had a full dance floor until 2am.

Making the decision to change our band was the best thing we did! They made our wedding and had a full dance floor until 2am! Our New Years Eve wedding wouldn't have been complete with out the MWO!

The Michael Walters Orchestra provided an incredibly entertaining wedding band for our special day. I was so impressed by how versatile they were and how many different styles they played. They even played current radio hits which really excited some of the younger members of the family. I recommend this band for any event you may be planning!
