My fiance and I were first introduced to the Michael Walters Orchestra at a wedding last summer. The music was phenomenal and the dance floor was packed all night from grandma and grandpa to the 20-somethings! MWO played a great mix that kept everyone going til the very end! At the end of the evening, my fiance (then boyfriend) looked at me and said "I think we found our wedding band!" Fast forward six months- we hired MWO for our wedding! I was torn between a band and DJ mostly because of price, but MWO is worth the splurge! We know our guests will be on the dance floor all night and MWO will keep everyone happy! Mike is extremely professional has been a pleasure to work with. We're super excited to have Mike and the MWO perform at our wedding!

We actually had MWO for a corporate event at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. They did a wonderful job mixing up the music for our group. I would suggest them to any organization for a fun band with a great genre of music. They are also easy to work with and very responsive!!

MWO is really great. can;t say enough good things about them. They played at a business (formal attire) event with a broard range of ages (35 years and up). Everybidy loved them and the broad range of songs they performed. As the staff person who recommended them to our leaders, I say "Thank you MWO!"

The band was amazing! They kept the dance floor crowded all night long - and the music was so good that guests who didn't like to dance or were unable to dance stayed the entire time to listen to the band. The singers came onto the dance floor and there was a sax solo on the other side of the dance floor during one of the songs. Our guests are still talking about how great they were and a lot of my friends want to hire them as well. And Michael Walters was so easy to work with - they have a huge list of songs and make it easy to include requests. The made our wedding unforgettable!

Mike Walters was very easy to work with. His orchestra was fabulous and had our crowd dancing all night. IPAD music easily filled breaks. Singers were stellar and MC duties were great. Highly recommend this group!

MWO was amazing! They kept my dance floor full all night! Michael was easy to work with and attentive to all details as needed. The band played a little bit of everything from Motown to current pop singles, everyone loved them. I have some friends still raving about how great the band was (3 days later).

MWO was the perfect band for our wedding. They are extremely professional, flexible, talented, and played funky Motown and other rock tunes all night long! Everyone danced all night and it was definitely due to the awesome music, the band's infectious personality and sound - the entire band was likewise extremely warm, accommodating, and just plain awesome to work with and get to know better. We are still getting calls and messages weeks later about how much our friends and family adored the band! We would recommend the MWO (as well as their acoustic guitarist for the ceremony, and Jazz trio options for cocktail hour or dinner) to everyone and anyone. They will work with you to make sure that your reception is everything that you want it to be - and more!

MWO was AWESOME! Mike was always great to work with and really takes the time to get to know what you are looking for! We did our first dance to "All of Me" by John Legend and the man who sang it had a beautiful voice! All of the singers and band members were so talented and our guests were always on the dance floor having a great time. We received many compliments on the band. One of our favorite parts was when the singer came into the crowd and sang in the middle of everyone--great energy! They are very versatile and sang such a wide variety of songs! I'm so happy we had them at our wedding! Thanks MWO!!

What can I say about the MWO...aside from how proud and grateful that we are to have had this ensemble for our event! First off, let me start with their level of professionalism and enthusiasm for making this wedding perfect for our needs. They were the life of the party, but did not take away from the bride and groom's attention, and were enthusiastic about every number!

They were so responsive, happy to tailor their services to our needs, and were instantly there every step of the way! They brought everything with them, making production seamless, and were there for anything that came up in the evening.

If I ever have a wedding or anything in the Midwest again...I know who I will be calling!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
