I can't stress enough how amazing this band is! They were SO awesome throughout the planning process and the night of the wedding. Kurtis was amazing to coordinate with and I would highly recommend this band to anyone and everyone! They had the crowd on their feet the ENTIRE night and people are still raving about them today! Seriously - BOOK THIS BAND!!! I can't wait to hire them for another event sometime in the future.

My husband and I agree our wedding was the most fun we've ever had, thanks in no small part to Nine Mile Smile. When we chose our venue NMS was the recommended band, we had never heard them so we snuck into another reception to hear them and we were sold within 60 seconds. Kurtis made the process easy and convenient from the initial contact through the reception. We wanted to make our own playlist for the cocktail hour (we aren't really soft jazz kind of people) and Kurtis was happy to accommodate our online playlist for the cocktail hour and during the very short breaks they took. That night and in the time since I have had TONS of people say our wedding was the most fun wedding they have ever attended and specifically called out NMS as being amazing! They learned Uptown Funk for us and it was a HUGE hit, especially with my 5 year old nephews who love that song! My husband and I hardly left the dance floor we were having so much fun. I would HIGHLY recommend NMS to anyone for their wedding. Whatever your musical style is or your crowd's style NMS will accommodate from their large set list. The music at your reception can make or break it and NMS will ensure an amazing time for everyone! I can't say enough how much fun we had and how great Nine Mile Smile is!!

Nine Mile Smile was honestly one of the best investments that we made on our wedding day. They were prompt and professional; we felt completely at-ease entrusting them with the details of our big day. Kurtis was fantastic at always answering our emails right away, which is great when trying to finalize all of the last minute details. They thought of everything! We had total faith in their song selection and they kept our reception rocking from start to finish. The dance floor was packed the entire evening, and even now... MONTHS after our wedding... our guests are still talking about how amazing our wedding band was. They are high energy, appeal to all generations, and made us feel like their personal friends throughout the entire process. Recommend them 100%!

Nine Mile Smile was an exceptional band and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone for their wedding! There are a few major things to mention:

•Personality! Everyone in the band was just lovely to work with. I had a lot of communication with Kurtis in advance of the bid day. He was always very responsive and accommodating and just a friendly/fun person. The day of the wedding I am thrilled to say the rest of his band mates were the same! Just a great group of people that I really enjoyed having on our big day

•Flexibility and Patience. Kurtis was so great in accommodating our special requests and needs. He worked with my dad and I to learn are really unique old tap dance song so that we could have a really special dance together. Additionally when my MIL picked a truly ridiculous song, Kurtis was able to make that work too! I never felt there was something I couldn’t ask of the group. Additionally onsite they took any special requests we had and worked them into their set where it made perfect sense.

•Variety. The place list is really truly exceptional. My husband and I have pretty varied tasted and Nine Mile Smile had a bit of everything. And since the only thing we can’t stand is country, which was easy to just pull off the list. Plus the 4 song choices, wonderful!

•PARTY! The whole reason for going with a band instead of a DJ was that we really wanted our wedding to be an amazing party and to have a great atmosphere. Mission Accomplished! Our dance floor was full the entire night and people loved the variety of music to dance too. Kurtis and crew were great at reading the audience and playing the music that would keep everyone on their feet.

We really can’t thank Nine Mile Smile enough for their amazing performance. It was truly a pleasure to work with them and was better than we even imagined!

My fiance and I were dead set on having a band at our wedding but felt very overwhelmed with finding one that fit our very different musical styles. We researched bands all over the state of Michigan and even Chicago but we couldn't quite find a perfect fit without spending an arm and a leg (and we had a pretty large budget for this portion of our wedding!)
9 Mile Smile was referred to us by a friend who had them at their wedding the summer before and absolutely loved them. Once we listened to some of their music and saw some video, we were hooked. It only got better from there.
Kurt and the entire band was so easy to work with. They communicated back and forth quickly and were very helpful throughout the entire process. What sets this band apart from others (besides Jordan's AMAZING voice along with a stellar male singer as well), is the fact that they will learn up to 4 songs for you in addition to their eclectic song list. That seriously made our night to have EVERY song that we wanted played.
I could go on and on about every detail about them that made our night absolutely perfect but there are not enough words. From talking to others who have had them, I know that they do this for all their clients and have as much fun as you are! We would absolutely recommend them to anyone and we hope we get to attend a wedding with them again soon!

Prior to our wedding, any questions that I had for the band were answered immediately and very thoroughly. I felt very confident in their services, and didn't have to worry about anything. I loved how they introduced our wedding party, and our reception was an absolute riot thanks to Nine Mile Smile. I wouldn't have changed a thing, and feel very fortunate that they were able to play for us... I didn't want the night to end!

Nine Mile Smile was such a huge part in making our wedding the celebration that it was! They are incredible - our dance floor was packed all night, even during their breaks when they DJ'ed music.
They are also extremely professional and responsive. My emails and questions were always answered promptly, they gave me multiple references I was able to speak with before hiring them, and they were more than willing to help with additional sound/music needs for our ceremony. They really understand how stressful planning a wedding can be and were so willing to go above and beyond for my groom and I to handle any extra items they could.
I would highly recommend them for any event (wedding or otherwise) - we couldn't have been happier they were part of our day!

9MS stepped in to play at our wedding with only about 4 weeks notice after our previously arranged wedding band split up, and the arrangements for the event went amazing smooth. The band had everyone dancing from start to finish, and happily played an extra long encore when no one wanted to stop dancing. Their selection of songs throughout the evening were perfect. Nine Mile Smile is awesome!!!

We strongly recommend Nine Mile Smile for anyone looking for a band to play at their wedding. We were looking to throw a great party and NMS made it happen. NMS was a pleasure to work with during the planning stage and the day of our wedding. They are very easy to get along with, professional and very responsive.

We had heard a lot of horror stories from bands who played the "wrong" music for the crowd so at first we insisted on picking out our play list. We received reassurance from NMS that they are great at playing to the crowd and work better with more flexibility....they were right. Not once during the wedding did we question the song selections!

We strongly believe that NMS is the best value that you will get for your money. Not only do they learn songs just for your wedding but they also DJ during band breaks....honestly, we could never tell when there was a break because the dance floor was packed all night.

We have received countless messages and notes from our friends and family asking who the band was, telling us how great they were and overall that our wedding was one of the best they have been to. We have NMS to thank in large part for that!

We strongly recommend NMS....they exceeded all our expectations of a band for our wedding.
