We have booked Best Day Ever multiple years in a row for our XO Group Holiday party. They are a hit every year! We get great feedback from our employees about how they are interactive and really make the party come alive! They showed up on time for set up and were very professional throughout the night. Always ensuring we were having a good time. Thanks again!

Best Day Ever! was a huge hit at our company holiday party for XO Group, Inc, which is a part of the GigMasters team. They provided sound equipment for us, set up hours in advance and even stayed later then the event end time. Coordinating with them was easy and extremely professional. All of our employees loved the music and the singers engaged with the audience, they were a huge hit! You can beat this band for your next event! Thanks again Best Day Ever!

Best Day Ever is in fact the best band ever!! We hired them for our company holiday party and they were a huge hit! Everyone was up on their feet dancing and jamming along the whole night. Dave is incredibly nice and such a pleasure to work with! He made sure the playlist targeted our whole audience and sounded even better than I could imagine (which was hard to believe since they sound amazing in their clips!) We hired the 10 piece band with the full ensemble and 3 lead singers. I would definitely recommend them for any and all events and hope to work with them again! - Callie, XO Group Inc

Thank-you, Callie! The band had a fantastic time providing musical entertainment for your event, and we had a wonderful time getting to speak with you and your colleagues at GigMasters, and getting to know you. What a fun evening! The GigMasters community should know what a fabulous "family" they have working for them. Great party!!!

dave arndt was a pleasure to work with. from start to finish, he kept me organized in planning all the songs we wanted to hear. he planned out the evening with dances, toasts, etc. he let me know what the band needed in terms of electricity, generator, etc. he also got in the loop of emails with the caterer and tent guy to help figure out best layout for dance floor, stage, etc. the band itself was phenomenal. they played all the music we wanted and once they started, they didn't stop all evening. it was fantastic! everyone danced until we were shut down for a noise complaint! thanks for everything. laurie curtis

As an event coordinator/producer, having delivered events for 100's of people each year, entertainment has a major role in setting the pace. Best Day Ever is truly top of the line. They maintained a tight professional relationship from start to finish. But once they arrived and interacted with me & my team, I knew I'd hired a very fine group. The musicians are extremely talented but most pronounced was their desire to create a wonderful effect upon their audience and ensure I was satisfied with their performance. I am now working out HOW CAN I USE BEST DAY EVER ONCE AGAIN! Thank you for not only being Best Day Ever, but for being The Very Best! - L.W.
