The Music was amazing, the talent was amazing, the service was phenomenal and the expertise in what they do are above and beyond. We definitely recommend this band!
Oh man - what a great choice in selecting Sandy Vine and the Midnights for our wedding!
From the moment they started until they finished, most of our guests were out of their chairs and on the dance floor moving and grooving.
The most complements we have received from our guests are about the midnights. Would hire them again in a heart beat! Job well done!
My husband and I booked Sandy Vine and The Midnights to play at our wedding this past July 11, 2015. Sandy Vine and The Midnights were absolutely amazing! All of our guests were up and dancing all night long, which was exactly what we wanted! They played oldies, Italian music, new music and pretty much anything we had requested them to play. Many of our guests complimented the music that was played and we could not have asked for anything more. We love Sandy Vine and The Midnights. They truly helped to make our wedding a fun, romantic and wonderful! They were extremely easy to communicate with and very professional.

We booked Sandy Vine to play at our wedding at the Pillar and Post in February 2015. We really enjoyed having a band and having tons of people dance all night long. We also enjoyed the piano music during our cocktail hour and dinner too.
Sandy was great at touching base before the wedding and getting all the songs we wanted played. He did a great job announcing our wedding party at the reception.
Sandy Vine and the Midnights made our wedding day memorable! We legitimately think that we owe the fun and energetic environment at our wedding to this band! They are worth every penny and more! Forget the DJ, Live Bands are were its at! They play music for every age and they constantly change their tunes to make sure everyone is on their feet! My 82 year old grandparents were having the best time dancing up a storm!
Sandy created the atmosphere that we were hoping for -- great music and energy and a full dance floor! The band quickly picked up on our guests' tastes and played hit after hit. And the jazz during cocktail hour was phenomenal. We couldn't have been more pleased with Sandy Vine and the Midnights!
Thanks for adding to the magic of the night!!
Beyond amazing! We fell in love with this band when they performed at my brother's wedding 2 years ago, and as soon as we were planning our own wedding there was no doubt who we would choose. Sandy is a pleasure to deal with in terms of communicating and organizing prior to the event. The band is professional and knows how to adjust to the crowd. As many other reviews indicate, we had people dancing during dinner and right through until the end of the night. They truly made our wedding memorable, and many guests keep raving about the band. My cousin has already signed them for her wedding next year.
Was an absolute pleasure to have the band play our wedding. I didn't know our friends had the stamina to dance all night long! Must of had something to do with the music. Thanks for a great night.
Both my wife and I had heard Sandy Vine and the midnights play at a wedding that we attended and we thought right then and there that we had to have them perform at our wedding. They simply had people dancing right as they started out and people did not leave the floor until the band ended. Even throughout dinner people would get up to dance because the music was just that great. Their rendition of songs is so bang on with what you would hear from the real live band. After our wedding we heard from almost every guest that our band was simply amazing. Some even asked for contact info for their own events. The band has a great gauge of the mood in the room and play music to what gets people excited to dance. They are extremely professional and want to see others have a great time. They also want to make sure that my bride and I were involved with song choices and they ensure that plenty of pre planning is done prior to the event. They simply made our night and we would recommend them to anyone having any event. They are professional and yes simply amazing. Thank you Sandy vine and the midnights for playing our wedding and making it a more than memorable experience.

Sandy Vine and the Midnights are amazing! Their music is fantastic! From The Beatles to classic rock to modern music -they can play everything- and so well! The female vocalist is outstanding!! We paid extra for the sax and it was so worth it!! So many of our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to - and I think the band played a big roll in that!
Sandy was so wonderful to work with. He was quick to respond and help with any questions we had. Sandy wanted our whole experience to be easy and care free and he went out of his way to make this happen.
Thank you so much to Sandy Vine and the Midnights! You made our wedding night a party that people will be talking about for a long time!!

When my husband and I got married last year he was adamant that we have a band instead of a DJ at the reception. I was hesitant, but he said that he had the perfect band for our wedding, Sandy Vine and The Midnights, and he was right - they were the perfect choice! The band was a tremendous hit! They were incredibly entertaining, professional, and very personable. We could not have been more pleased with our decision to go with them. Now Sandy and The Midnights are our must have form of entertainment, which is why we hired them for another event this July. Once again Sandy Vine and The Midnights rocked the night away with us and our guest, taking requests and thoroughly impressing and entertaining everyone with their incredible vocal ranges, musical abilities, and extensive song list. We highly recommend them as a reliable and stress-free band, who will truly entertain all your guests beyond your expectations.
From the response received that evening, Sandy Vine and the Midnights provided a wonderful evening of music. The entertainment was a great hit. The band provided an eclectic array of genres, much to the delight of the supporters of the One Foundation - A Royal Ascot Affair for Kidney Care.
Thank you Sandy Vine and the Midnights for an awesome night of entertainment at Cottonwood Mansion Silver Anniversary Celebration. I am happy to say that we received just as many top notch comments from our community on your show as we did on the fireworks that followed. You made the organizers Heroes
They were the perfect band for our wedding. Dealing with Sandy was a great experience from our first email to his last song to close out our party. They had the dance floor jumping throughout the night. Their playlist is huge from our soulful first dance to classic rock hits to top 40 pop. Our guests made a point of telling us they loved the band. My favourite part of his performance was our first dance. I will have that happy memory etched in my mind the rest of my life.
Sandy Vine and the Midnights closed the 2014 Niagara Folk Arts Festival and despite the rain and cold weather, put on a fun show for the small crowd that stuck around and the many volunteers in Montebello Park. The band did not diminish their enthusiasm, performance or presentation quality despite the low numbers and they played their full sets-a great show of respect for those in attendance and testament to their professionalism. Also, due to the nature of our event, the band helped our mandate by playing Italian cultural pop songs as well as their current sets-an excellent blend of Canadian Multiculturalism. I plan to engage the group again in the future.
