Greatest Wedding Band Ever

My Husband and I were referred to Mitch & Robbie through mutual friends of ours. When we checked out the website we were immediatly on the phone booking them to perform at our wedding. Needless to say that our guests had a blast the band had everyone dancing smiling & laughing the entire night. They were 100% professional and played every single request we threw at them.
I would recommend this band to anyone and everyone ! I am so glad we decided to forgo the DJ thing and go the extra mile.

Influences & Inspiration

We play a huge variety of music, probably the most varied of any band you've ever heard. We may play a classic country song followed by a funk dance song followed by a beachmusic song. We find out what our audience likes.

Setup Requirements

we need several 20 amp circuits or access to a 220volt plug close to the stage area/
