The latest reviews:

Everything went GREAT! I received tons of compliments on the band! I had spoken to them before the event and asked for their help in a game, and that came off great too! I explained to them that my party tends to die early so he should go big right from the start – they did and it got the dance floor filled! The entire band was especially gracious and played strong to the end, even when there were about 10 guests left.

Overall – fabulous! Thank you again!

MVP Smash was the hit of our homecoming! Our crowd included young children all the way up to guests in their seventies and everyone enjoyed the performance. The set list featured a great variety of music that you hear on the radio and the quality of musicians was outstanding. MVP Smash would be great for any event looking to get people moving and singing along. Highly recommend this group.

When trying to decide what to do for a fundraising benefit we called MVP Smash to talk to them about getting involved. What a great time we had planning this event and with MVP Smash playing it was such a blast. What a talented group of musicians! We loved them so much they are now booked for my sisters wedding. All I can say is they are so professional and so much fun. Thanks MVP Smash and Craig for making my benefit a huge success!

One of the best decisions we have made celebrating my husbands 50th birthday party was picking MVP Smash to play. Everybody raved about how great you were! We were able to pick out music and worked with us so effortlessly on the details. I would encourage anyone to book this awesome band and your event will be amazing. Brads 50th will forever be remembered!

MVP Smash was a total hit at our company party! It was an important celebration and Craig Dion and the band delivered a high energy, super fun mix of music to really make it a party atmosphere. Everyone raved about how talented the band was and how much fun they added to the event. They even accommodated a last minute request for employees to sing with the band. They were also very professional and easy to work with. Thank you, MVP Smash, for making our celebration memorable!

We had a memorable and amazing celebration with MVP Smash playing at our wedding reception! All of our guests had a lot of fun, including our 3 year old nieces and nephews. The dance floor never slowed down and the band impressed everyone with their unbelievable talent. We were also very pleased with their quick email responses and how accommodating they were while we were planning our event. If you are looking for an exceptional live band experience for your wedding reception or party look no further, MVP smash is the band for you.
