Here's some of the feedback Work Release have received from satisfied customers:

The Wise Guys were a joy to work with. Numerous attendees at our event asked "Where did you find the band?" Several guests and the owner of the venue where we held our event pooled their money and asked the band to play a while longer--which they did! They played a diverse range of music genre so everyone was happy and having a great time. We wouldn't hesitate to hire them again! First class all the way. -Tammy K, Rice Lake, WI

The band was great - they had really fun music and went all out for our surprise birthday event. I highly recommend them - they were very accommodating. They played all our song requests and checked in with us throughout the night to see how things were going if we wanted to change anything. A super nice group to work with, you won't have any regrets hiring these guys. -Christine E, Scandia, MN

Our overall experience with the Wise Guys for our wedding was fabulous! Having only heard this band on-line, we were very impressed hearing them live! They played some wedding songs we put on a CD for us before and after the ceremony, as well as during the dances (first and last) and their timing with it all was PERFECT! What a relief! They also let us borrow their cordless microphone for the ceremony and toasts, which was a HUGE help! As far as special requests go...we need to find a way to get this on line...they actually allowed for one of the groomsmen and the groom's father to sing a couple of Johnny Cash songs, which ROCKED! Thank you SO much! -Michelle Z, Barnes, WI

Everyone had a great time and we have received numerous comments on how great the Wise Guys were. The Wise Guys come highly recommended!! -Andrea H, Deerwood, MN

We've been having a Summer Kickoff party for our friends for the past four years. Everyone was complimenting us on the band THE WISE GUYS which we booked for this year's party. Our guests all enjoyed the variety of music that they played. Great sing along music that everyone knew and could dance to. Also, great audience participation. They did an awesome job from beginning to end! We found them through gig masters. We had never had the opportunity to see these guys play before but I would highly recommend this band to anyone! We look forward to seeing them again! THANKS GUYS FOR MAKING OUR PARTY A HIT YOU DID A FABULOUS JOB! -Tammy H, Appleton, WI

Work Release are now accepting bookings for remaining 2018 and 2019.

The Wise Guys were very accommodating to our requests and were great to work with for our wedding reception. They were fun and entertaining, playing a range of music and attempted to satisfy a wide range of requests, from polka and waltz to rock and country. They played a little of everything for everybody. We would recommend them to anybody.

The Wise Guys band members were really great to work with. Very professional and gave me great direction on what their needs were to perform. After our corporate event, with over 420 in attendance, we received all positive comments on the variety of music played and their talent. I would definitely recommend this band to for any wedding, or corporate event in the future. Thank you for being awesome to work with! Sincerely, Catherine Marshall
