We hired Meredith to sing for both our wedding ceremony as well as during our reception. From the moment we first spoke to her, she was amazing. She stated that she was honored to play for us in such an important event and was honestly thankful and humble. All interactions with her were easy and comfortable and she continued to communicate with us up through the day of our wedding. She was so incredible on the day of the wedding that my guests were awestruck and asking for business cards. Her voice alone would have been enough to wow us but Meredith brought such a happy, joyous and easy personality to the stage that it is we who are honored she sang for us at our important event.
Response from Meredith McHenry:
Amber, thank you so much for your kind words and for the honor of bringing us in to perform on your wedding day! It was such a pleasure working with you both and you have such a lovely, warm family. We genuinely enjoyed getting to be part of such a beautiful day!! Hope you're both doing great!!
I met Meredith a few years back at a gig she was doing. She has an incredible voice that hooks you in immediately. Since that night I have seen her too many times to count. She has a large following from Pleasanton, Livermore, and beyond! She can alter the songs according to her audience and has a magical way of making the most popular songs stand out! There are a few songs where she has the audience participate and that makes the songs even more fun! I now hear certain songs on the radio and think of her! I would highly recommend Meredith and her crew at any event! She is the best!
Meredith has performed for our holiday and release parties and is fabulous! She can set the mood or entertain for any type of event. I have heard her sing for weddings, private parties, larger venues, etc. and always hits it out of the park. No matter what your event is, you won't be disappointed with Meredith's amazing talent!
Meredith performed at our wedding over 2 years ago. It was actually her first wedding gig, but you would have never known it by how magically she performed. Not only does she have a God-given gift for singing and an amazing range - she was really great at reading the crowd, stepping in to do some MC work, and selecting music that was right in the moment. Everyone was up on their feet dancing the night away. By the end of the evening, people were asking me where I found her, where they could hear her again, and the venue added her to their list of preferred vendors. Thank you Meredith for making our event so special and fun.
We hired Meredith and her band to play at our annual summer kick-off party. She's a true professional; communicating well in advance, arriving early to set up, mingling with guests to warm them up, and then knocking their socks off all night. They even played a few extra songs cause the crowd was begging for more. Our friends are still talking about the night and asking when she be coming back. She can cover any genre whether its a love song and soulful jazz tune or get everyone moving on the dance floor with rock and blues. Honestly, I don't know why she isn't playing in much bigger venues with her talent, but we feel very lucky she still takes more intimate bookings.
We don't get out often, but when we want a night out, we often check where Meredith will be performing in our tri-valley! She has a beautiful voice, her music style is smooth and soulful....we have invited friends and everyone enjoys the show...always a good time. I highly recommend her for any occasion.
Meredith isn't just a singer. She is a performer! Her voice, her passion, her sass. Not only is she a favorite at local Bay Area venues , I would also highly recommend her for private parties. I have used Meredith's talents at the Dublin Sister City Association Gala as well as for a private party. She can sing most any song and nail it! Have fun!
We contacted Meredith about our small wedding in Castro Valley, and she was super flexible and super professional. She and Michael performed mellow tunes while the guests were gathering, and even learned how to play "Rainbow Connection" for the ceremony. She then moved to the reception, and they brought the groove for a great and eclectic array of tunes.
Had we been thinking, we would have booked her full band for the rest of the night.
Amazing performer, professional artist, and great person!
I've had the pleasure of listening to Meredith preform for many years now. When a voice can transport your mind and make your soul sing with joy you know you're hearing real deal talent and Meredith has it in spades. If you have a chance to go to a show or want to book hey for your venue I guarantee you'll be impressed. The only thing that tops her talent is the genuine sweetness that is the core of Meredith.
Listening to Meredith McHenry live is a day-changer. Her voice will stop you. She's just that good. But perhaps even equally powerful is her ability to connect with an audience. Meredith always delivers an authentic, engaging performance that mixes soul, wit and charm.
Price Range: $400 and up
What to Expect
We arrive as a self contained unit in almost all cases and really only require access to electricity for equipment. For larger events, both indoor and outdoor, we work closely with a sound technician who brings out a more powerful system to fit the event and location.
Style of music and song choices will depend on your goals for the event. Our clients love the variety and flexibility of music we can provide. All groups are fronted by Meredith, who is lucky enough to have developed a robust local following of wonderful people who come to as many shows as they're able. So if you're booking for a venue that's open to the public you're likely to see a solid spike in attendance the night we play.
If you're looking for wedding entertainment they can provide many references from happy couples who's weddings we were so happy to play! We'll work with you to find the right combination of players and style of music for your amazing day!
Whatever the event or venue, your guests or are in for a fabulous evening of engaging, live entertainment!
Meredith has been singing since she could talk. Beginning in church choirs and at home with a group that would rival The Partridge Family. Later moving on to local theater, jazz and opera in college. Mer took some time off from music after school to focus on family but eventually found her way back when she landed on ABC's Karaoke Battle USA in 2011. The episode featuring Meredith aired to over 3 million people, and all of a sudden her phone was ringing with gig work! So she quit the day job in corporate training, dove in to music full-time and never looked back.
Mer performs all over the bay area, but you can most frequently find her singing around Livermore and Pleasanton at various venues. To find a calendar of events just visit (link hidden)!
