The Complete Package!

We surprised everyone at our wedding reception with Members Only, and we couldn't be happier with that decision! These guys put on a great show and were an absolute blast! Brent was incredibly easy to work with, and all of these guys were a ton of fun. I think they probably have as much fun performing as we all did listening/dancing, and the crowd certainly fed off of it! I had at least 2 dozen people tell me that this was the best wedding reception they had ever been to because of Members Only. I would HIGHLY recommend these guys for any event you're planning. A great group of guys, that played killer music, and really brought the party to our wedding reception. What more could you want?!?

Outstanding Experience!

We booked Member's Only to play for our Holiday Party in early December. Due to weather conditions, we had to reschedule our party and these guys couldn't have been better or easier to work with through that whole process. It got down to a last minute decision and the communication with them was fantastic. We rescheduled our party for February 1st and everyone had an awesome time. There was a slight concern that the venue would be a little small and that it would be very loud. They had everything set up perfectly as far as acoustics go. I've heard them in outdoor venues where they could belt it out and they were equally good without being overbearing in our venue.The band is phenomenal. We had many, many "Wow, these guys are good!" comments. I would highly recommend them as fabulous musicians and performers and also as very professional, buttoned up businessmen. If you book them, you won't have to worry about a thing!

Wedding 10-12-13

Members Only just played for my daughter's wedding reception. She had seen them perform and had decided that she had to have them at her wedding. She actually told me that if they couldn't play on the date we had chosen, she would change the date of her wedding! Luckily, they were available on the date she wanted. I couldn't have been happier with the way the reception went. All age groups danced the whole time because the band was wonderful. Our photographer has photographed over 600 weddings and he said he has never heard a better band. They played all the best songs from the 80's. They played requests and everyone sang along all evening. The sound and the light show were excellent. On top of all that, the band members are really nice guys! We had the best time.

Rockin' Show / Very Professional

Members Only not only !ROCKED! our Saturday night, they did it with the highest level of professionalism. They brought plenty of help, were more than prepared by show time, incorporated the audience, stayed sober throughout the entire show (as expected - but not always the case with other bands) and had a good time themselves.
They draw a crowd of people that we enjoy serving. I can honestly say that having "Members Only " has been the best event we have put on down here. I CANNOT wait until the next time they play here!!

Always A Great Performance

We've had Members Only entertain our pre-show crowds for both Poison/Def Leppard in 2012 and Journey in 2013. To say they do a fantastic job is an understatement.

Completely professional yet still maintaining a rock 'n roll, party attitude, MO knows how to entertain a crowd! Great song lists, excellent musicianship and playing up the crowd make Members Only more than just a cover band. These guys are truly ENTERTAINERS!

We will always have them back at The Amp until they stop returning our calls!

It doesn't get any better than this!

We had Members Only play at our wedding in Springfield in July. The band was absolutely PHENOMENAL and we would wholeheartedly recommend them for any special occasion or event.

On a musical level, it's just ridiculous how good these guys are. Seriously -- you'll be blown away from the minute they start playing. And they're incredible performers, too; they bring an intense level of energy and fun that practically makes it impossible for anyone not to have a good time.

On top of that, the band couldn't be more professional. We communicated with them on and off in the months leading up to the wedding to iron out details. They were always responsive and eager to do anything they could to make sure we'd be happy with the way things went.

On the day of the wedding, they showed up early in the afternoon (as we had arranged) to get everything set up -- lights, sound system, the whole nine yards. It was like having a full-fledged rock concert right in our venue.

The band helped manage playback for music we'd prepared to play while guests were arriving prior to the ceremony and while we were walking down the aisle. And they were there and ready to start playing live the minute the ceremony ended, just as we had asked; they played almost nonstop for four full hours with only one short break midway through.

We were worried about things being too loud for our event, especially in the earlier parts of the evening (when older relatives would still be around and people were eating, chatting, etc) -- but the band worked with us to shape the sound and the set list so that the evening would start out more mellow and low-key and then transition into more of a party vibe as the night wore on. It was spot-on, as they promised; we really couldn't have asked for more.

All in all, Members Only turned our night into an awesome party that we -- and everyone else who was there -- will never forget. Even now, weeks after the fact, our friends and family are still raving about "that amazing band" that made the wedding so much fun.

A blast!!!! Spot on!!! Fun!!! Classy!!!

The fact that Members Only is a group of exceptionally talented musicians and over-the-top entertaining, is only part of the story. I watched people let their hair down that never do. I watched ladies get on the dance floor, that never do. We had guests from Texas that said it was the best party and best band ever!!!!! I cannot praise you men enough!!!!!!! I appreciate the huge part you have in making our Pink Ribbon Galas such a huge success!!! Heartfelt thanks.

Members Only Explodes @ Cartoons

In a word, PROFESSIONALS! These guys are the real deal from start to finish, dynamite musicians and more than that raise the entertainment bar about as high as possible. Starting on time, totally engaging the crowd, and playing until we made them stop @ closing time, we can't wait for their return. If you need a totally professional, highly entertaining group w/great musicians and people dancing and singing along all night long - MEMBERS ONLY IS THE BAND YOU NEED!

Five Star Entertainment!

We booked Members Only for our annual holiday party and I could not have been more pleased! From a planning perspective - the band was extremely easy to work with & very prompt to get in touch with me regarding any questions I had in the days prior to the event. On the night of the event they certainly brought the energy to our group - managing to get a room full of accountants to dance which is no easy task, then to receive cheers for an encore! As the event planner I always worry about pleasing our large crowd - Members Only blew away the attendees & SEVERAL mentioned it was the best party yet (some of them have been going for over 20 years)!

I can't say enough good things about them - in terms of professionalism & entertainment value these guys can't be beat!

MO brought it for 'Rock the Holidays' 2011!

Wow! I can't say enough about these guys...As the hostess/event planner for my company's Christmas party they really made me look like a rockstar. We are an advertising agency full of talented, highly discerning individuals, so suffice it say I was more than a little nervous about picking any one talent to please the critical masses. Fast forward to the night of the party and I was bowled with excitement when MO dizzied every last one of them from head to toe! They put on such an impressive, high energy show that it left everyone talking about the party was for days on end. To quote my SVP, he said it was likely "the best event in our company's history". With such a creative and critical bunch to please I couldn't be happier with the end result. I couldn't have asked for a better band talent-wise or professionally speaking either. Members Only is certainly a ton of fun, but make no mistake they are also a class act! Highly recommend. :)
