" Mitch, the York Rotary Club fund raiser dance last weekend was super thanks to Summerdaze! I have heard so many compliments on the band and the mix of tunes played for dancing!  One person stated "you know the band is good when you see the patrons singing along to the songs being played early in the night!"  I personally appreciated working with you on making the "music happen."  As I had mentioned, this was a first experience for me to engage a band and you certainly made this part easy!

We hope Summerdaze will be receptive and available to come back to the York Rotary event another year.  A date has not been discussed, but probably will be around the same time of year. We will definitely be in touch. Many thanks and it was a pleasure working with you!"  York, S.C. I March 18, 2017 I Maria Duncan-Rotary Club

The whole band was so lively and energetic, they had the whole reception hall dancing! The band came out and danced and sang with our guests and made everyone welcome, young and old!

It's clear they love what they do, and I loved what they did for us: creating an atmosphere of merriment and joy and celebration for our wedding day. I would recommend them to any and everyone!

"Mitch and everyone in Summerdaze, I want to take a moment to thank you for making Brian's 50th birthday party such a wonderful night. I can say that you were truly the best band I could have hoped to have and am so thankful to have found you. The night was a complete success from the music to the entertainment and the following morning starting at 8am, my phone did not stop ringing with compliments about you. "Where did you find them?", "Where did you hear them before?", "That band was so amazing!" Not only did all of you engage the wide variety of ages of the crowd from college age to 50+ your flexiblity to range songs from hit list music to beach dancing music to line dancing. It was so much appreciated by everyone in the crowd and especially me. When I took a moment to sit down and just watch all of you, I realized just how lucky I was. I know you put a lot of hard work into that day and learning "Call Me Maybe" because Brian is obsessed with that song and plays it all the time, was a something I can't believe you did. It made me teary eyed that you would work so hard for someone's party and says a lot about Summerdaze. You are very special. I will pass your name along to anyone who is looking for an excellent band and hope all of you know just how much you are appreciated for doing a great job. Thanks."

I would highly recommend them for your show. I hope to get them back for an outdoor show."

"Summerdaze played at our wedding reception in Winston-Salem, NC. We thoroughly enjoyed their music and our guests did too! Their song list had just what we were looking for - VARIETY. They played everything from oldies to top 40 to country and more. We were able to satisfy the tastes of all our guests with their set list. They were willing to learn a new song for our first dance and they performed it beautifully. The band was a joy to work worth throughout the entire wedding planning process. I don't think there was ever a time that I emailed them and didn't get a response back the same day. They showed up with everything they needed to setup and perform in our venue. To put it briefly, Summerdaze proved to be a reliable, easy to work with, talented, super-fun band and I would happily recommend them to anyone looking for a band to play at their special event!"
