Hundreds of people outside on a beautiful summer evening, listening to great music performed by a great band. What could be better? The crowd was up and dancing through the whole performance and the music mix fit was just right. We would highly recommend this high energy group and look forward to working with them in the future.

Such fun and what a great band! I booked the Mojo Kings with out ever hearing them live, and they put on an amazing show for our reception. My family is not a "dancing" family but they were able to get a lot of people on the dance floor! John Melinchock was really great in handling communication, and always was on top of things. We had an 8-piece band with a horn section. I had a ton of people come up to me during the reception and say "These guys are great! Where did you find them?!" They really made the reception and would book them again in heartbeat!

Very professional, experienced and accomodating band - they kept the dance party going from the time they started until the time it was over. Played wide range of dance music and provided their play list prior to party for minor adjustments. Would definitely hire again!

The gentlemen arrived early to set up their equipment and do their sound checks, performed for the allotted time. Their music had people up and dancing. It was a great experience for me as the person who hired them for the event. They were easy to deal with, contact was exceptional. I have had people ask where I found them and I give them the website. They truly were Fabulous!

We were extremely pleased with the professional, flexible attitude all of the guys had at our party. There was a few surprises that interupted their flow of the night and the band was able to get the dance floor hopping again!

We hired John and Theresa for a small coffeehouse event (40-50 attendees) where they were the sole entertainment. They were both very friendly and accommodating to our requests as well as those of the guests. I'm sure it would be a very different show if we would have hired their full 12 or so piece big band. This is just a review for their 2-person coffeehouse style band. Overall, definitely still a fun night.

The band MADE our party! We couldn't have asked for a more energetic and entertaining group of people. Even though the weather was bad, they still kept their word, and got to us on time. We are still getting compliments on how great the party was, from every age group... Thanks to The Fabulous Philadelphia Mojo Kings Dance Band; we can't wait until next year when you come back!!
