The Sun Messengers have been one of the most popular groups in the Detroit area since forming in 1980. Why? Because they know music and they know their crowds.

The Sun Messengers have played venues as diverse as the legendary rock club CBGBs in New York, followed the very next night by a Rockefeller wedding reception in Oyster Bay. They’ve gotten the party started at more than 6-thousand jobs, including weddings, festivals, night clubs, bar mitzvahs, casinos, corporate events, private parties and sporting events. Only strong musicians with a versatile repertoire can do that.

So if you’re looking for a group that’s big enough to have been the house band for the Detroit Pistons; backed up the likes of Martha Reeves and The Drifters; opened for Jay Leno; turns the streets of Ann Arbor into one big dance party every year at the annual Ann Arbor Summer Festival and can still keep the party going at a private event like yours – there’s only one band to call…..

I cannot say enough good things about the Sun Messengers! The music was FABULOUS, and they are really quite affordable for their quality. They drove up from Detroit to Charlevoix, arrived on time, and were eminently professional. Most of all, the music was top notch. Our guests were dancing ALL NIGHT, and everyone was really impressed by the sound. They went above and beyond for us - volunteering to learn two songs for our first dance, etc. - and you never would have known they weren't originally familiar with the songs when they played them. Music is so important for the tone of the reception, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants their wedding to be a party!

The Sun Messengers were such a great addition to our wedding reception! They were really flexible with our very last-minute daddy/daughter dance song changes, and they were able to play live and sing all of our requests (like the daddy/daughter, mother/son, and husband/wife dance). They had great suggestions for how to order the reception events (after all, they've done lots of weddings and I've only planned ONE!) and it went really smoothly as a result. They play long versions of each song, which keeps people out on the dance floor longer and more consistently - you aren't sitting down and jumping back up again all the time like you are with a DJ or with quicker song changes. They played a great mix of music, which is what we asked for - standards at the cocktail hour with a duo, and big band/popular-contemporary/Motown music mixes at the reception with the full band. Even though my mom had done the majority of planning/contracting with them, the band leader made a point to check with me about a few low-stress details when he arrived at the reception, just to make sure everything would go just like we wanted. We did a two long set option with a 30 minute break in-between, which gave our guests a chance to get their cake and ice cream floats and check out the photo booth. We were able to make our own country music playlist as a nod to the groom's favorite genre during the break, but the Sun Messengers will also make their own playlist for you during the break - this was just a nice option to have.

I was so looking forward to hearing the Sun Messengers play at my reception. I heard a great demo CD of them and found a great deal for our event date to hire them through Showtime Events. Unfortunately my fiance lost his battle with cancer before we could get hitched. Thankfully, the band was kind enough to return our deposit.
