wonderful band

I hired Infra Red Band as a surprise birthday gift to my husband in his 50th birthday last October 13, 2012 and it was indeed a pleasant surprise for him and to all our guests. Everybody enjoyed dancing to their music, and Barb was a brilliant performer and entertained all our guests with her energetic performance. I would definitely recommend them to anybody who wants real party and I would hire them again in my future special events. Thanks Michael and company for the music and fun, it was such a memorable night.

The best dance band ever!

We hired InfraRed to perform at our daughter’s Bat Mitzvah party in London Ontario. They were awesome! A great fun band! Michael is professional in every way, from beginning to end and a very accommodating musician. The band learned a new song in Hebrew, Hava Nagila, and the vocals, a pure pleasure to work with, were amazing. Guests at our event are still commenting on how great the band was. Everyone loved dancing to their music and had a great time. Thanks to them our daughter had the dream party she had wanted and all of our guests had a wonderful time. We would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a great fun band for any event! Thanks a lot Michael and everyone part of InfraRed!

Lively,Vibrant, Energetic and Professional.

Infrared provided the music for our recent family function. Their performance was lively, vibrant, energetic, and far exceeded our expectations. Michael and Donna were very professional in their communication with us and catered the music to our needs.
Our guests thoroughly enjoyed their selection of music and were greatly impressed.
Great job!!!

Review by Beverley H. M.

Since 2002 I have been hiring this band! The vocals are excellent and they have a great sound. I have used them for festivals, Business improvement rallies, private parties and for club banquets. The price point is excellent for the quality you are served. My guests always give excellent reviews and I have had people sit to dj music and dance only to the group.

The band brought some good vibes to the event, and not one person was sitting by the end of the night. Thanks for the good times!

Review by Anne B.

InfraRed are HOT! HOT! HOT! The boys warmed us up during cocktail hour with some easy listening Caribbean music and played some "easy listening" over dinner. Then Donna came out and they really turned up the heat - keeping us on the dance floor all night long! Great party atmosphere, interaction with the group and talented beyond! Great Job! We are definitely "tooting" your horn all over the Province...and we will definitely call again!

We put out a survey to attendees asking, "What did you enjoy or value the most about this Conference?"...

The Caribbean night!


Thank you for making our event such a success!

Review by Kathy S.

I would recommend InfraRed to any party where you want to have nothing but the best of times. The vocals were outstanding, the guitar playing amazing, and for just a three piece band their sound has a better quality of some much larger bands. We can't believe how lucky we were to get such a power house band at such a reasonable rate...we can't wait to hire them again.
