Review by Kerri F.

EventReviewed on August 13, 2011From North Smithfield, RI

John Erikson and Blockhead did a wonderful job at our 20th High School Reunion. They were able to met our request not only with choice of songs, but also they were able to DJ. It was great! We got to hear some live tunes, while mixing it up with "old school" jams in between sets. Did I mention we requested an acoustic set towards the end of dinner too? to do that as well. Prior to the event, John answered my emails promptly and professionally. What he said he would do...he did. Plan and simple. And let's not forget the reason we booked them in the first place...John has a great voice with a great band to back him up!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 24, 2010From Hull, MA

We couldn't be happier with you and the band. You truly made our wedding a night to remember. Our guests, young and old are still raving how good the band was. Everything was perfect from song selection to introductions and most of all learning the song we chose for our first dance. Blockhead is a talented and professional band that i would recommed for any occasion. Thank you, Joe & Shari Teague
