This band is absolute perfection. They "made" our event. The music was at a level few can achieve, and their flawless command of the room was notable. Pitch Perfect in all ways! The musicality and harmonies were fabulous. I can recommend this band with great enthusiasm. Take a look at their credits, and listen to their sound. It cannot be better. I am indebted to Michael and Jennifer, Dan, and Kori for sharing their great talent with us. It is real music, and the best of the best. My thanks! MPW

ConcertReviewed on September 23, 2021From Greensboro, NC

We could not have asked for a better group for our event than the McLains and their band. They were awesome and we will absolutely use them again. I think Jennifer thought I was being funny, but having been a professional musician for a number of years, it was so refreshing to hear a bluegrass band that was always in tune. I recommend them without reservation.

Wow! What an incredible performance. If you like Alison Krauss you are going to love Jennifer's voice. Both Micheal and Jennifer are outstanding musicians and I would highly recommend them both. They played at an employee appreciation type event and the team loved them. They really made the event. We only had Michael and Jennifer play but the duo was awesome. I can only imagine how good it would have been with the entire band. Check out their CD if you have never heard them!

WeddingReviewed on April 15, 2017From Weaverville, NC

We inquired about Michael & Jennifer for our wedding that was just three months away; they responded promptly and amazingly, were available! They were reasonably priced, and agreed to let my musician brother play several songs with them. Talk about accommodating! Their music was the perfect backdrop for our Western North Carolina wedding.

WeddingReviewed on September 18, 2015From Dexter, MI

Michael and Jennifer and the others in the group were superb! True professionals and very talented! For my daughter's wedding, we wanted them to play on the farmhouse porch during the ceremony, then move and play from the barnhouse patio immediately afterward, then move again to the pavilion tent to play during dinner. None of this was a problem for them. Very accomodating! And everybody love them! Their musical talent and audio expertise was all top notch! I rated them all with 5's because they truly deserve that rating! Thanks Banjocats! (also very nice people!.. it was a pleasure meeting them!) Sincerely, Rick Howard

Rehearsal DinnerReviewed on November 8, 2013From Lenoir City, TN

Michael and Jennifer were wonderful to work with. We hired them to play at our son's rehearsal dinner in Knoxville. Their music and energy was one of the biggest reasons the evening was so much fun. They even took the time to learn a new song I requested. I really cannot say enough good things about them. They definitely were 5 PLUS in every category! In addition to being professional and extremely talented, they are NICE, as well. I feel like we made two new friends. I would not hesitate to hire them again, and can recommend them Highly!!

Mr. and Mrs. McLain were very accommodating and most of all very professional. They went above and beyond with providing much needed help with the booking process and and delivered a five star performance. I would most definitely consider booking them again and I would recommend them to anyone looking to receive a great performance!!!

CelebrationReviewed on February 28, 2015From Charlotte, NC

Michael and Jennifer did an amazing job at my house party. They were able to accommodate my venue and budget; and suggested a paired down version of their full band, to just the two of them and it worked out beautifully. I wanted a more intimate, casual music environment and they delivered exactly the mood I was hoping for; warm, engaging, fun. They took great care to make sure the acoustics were right in my home, and let me participate in the song selection and even learned a special song I wanted for the event. And they are both lovely to work with; pleasant and helpful. I would hire them again in a hearbeat!

WeddingReviewed on May 24, 2015From Boulder, CO

Delightful people, superb musicians. Flexible, helpful. They made for a memorable "sound track" for our wedding weekend--the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony( many of our guests raved that church music was "best ever") and the reception. They are great but showed no ego-- graciously allowing some (pretty talented actually) guests to play a song and even helping out with a base line and fiddle. I would have them again ( and might--i've got one more kid) in a heartbeat. Only one qualifier. Michael is too humble to be an MC-- I would not ask him to do that. (But he'll do whatever you ask, with a smile. And amazing musical gifts.

They did a wonderful job with the little info that I gave them with what songs I wanted. They were very flexible and friendly when they came on the day. They played beautifully and made a special day even more so with lovely music. Thank you so much. I would definitely use them again. Allison Harrison

We had the banjo cats for a rehersal dinner . They were very accommodating on types of songs and how the program should run. Set the tone for the evening as enjoyable and upbeat
