We recently hired Reflections II Band for our company Christmas party. Mike & the band kept the party going on all night long! I loved how they played all types of music for everyone from classic rock to country to oldies and even some beach music. I also really like the way they played the current dance songs during their breaks so that we had non stop music all night. They are all first class musicians! As a former working now retired musician myself, I can tell you there is not many bands around that can top these guys! From Mike's excellent vocals (and wow what a vocal range!!) to Stephen's blistering guitar leads, to Brandon's drum skills, these guys are incredible! When you hear them, you will be amazed at how they sound like a 5 pc band with just 3 pcs. At first I thought they were playing with tracks as some bands do, but they are playing live. I don't know how Mike plays bass, keyboard parts, and sings lead at the same time! It's also really neat how they are all family, and my goodness what a killer sound system they have! We also enjoyed Mike's humor on the microphone and how he loves to embarrass and mess with folks. In our case we had a birthday in our company, and he brought them up on stage and just proceeded to embarrass them to death! It was so funny!
In closing, these are the guys you want to get. They invited us to come hear them last weekend at a club gig, and they still were great! No egos, no drama, just great players with a great friendly attitude! I've heard just about every band from the Fayetteville, Sanford, and Raleigh / Durham area, and these guys are the best I've heard by far. No comparison! I'm really surprised that Mike isn't playing with a big beach band or touring with some big group because he's that good!
I highly recommend hiring Reflections II Band for your event! I just booked them again for our party again next year. You won't be sorry!
Price Range: $500 - $3,000
Gig Length: 60 - 300 minutes
What to Expect
Reflections II Band strives to give a top performance every night and play music that appeals to everyone... NOT just one genre such as rock or country! We pride ourselves in playing all types of music from classic rock to southern rock to "beach music" to R & B to Country... something for everyone. We also LOVE to get the audience involved by either coming on stage and playing cowbell or tamborine with the band, or embarrassing them on their birthday! We believe that the audience should be ENTERTAINED and included, not just played to as most bands do. If you want background music a DJ is a better choice. If you want to be ENTERTAINED... Reflections II Band is a better choice!
Reflections II Band is a professional band formed over 38 years ago... and still playing! Call us today for a quote!
We are a professional band that plays all types of music.. from Classic Rock to Party Music to Country to oldies to beach to dance...

We also play the most current dance music (from the Wobble to Cupid Shuffle to top Country line dances during our breaks) through our professional 10,000 watt sound system during our breaks (We actually have 5 different professional sound systems that we use depending upon the size of your event).

About the band... Reflections II Band is made up of 3 older seasoned professional musicians who sound more like a 5 or 6 pc band due to a great sound system, and modern technology. They also play LIVE... not with any tracks like a lot of bands do! You would be surprised how many bands play along with computers to make the band sound "fuller". Reflections II Band plays LIVE always!
About the members: Mike plays keyboards... bass with his left hand, and keyboards with his right hand and is the main lead singer of the band. Mike has been playing professionally over 39 years with experience on big stages backing up many major artists of all genres. Mike has turned down several offers of playing professionally with national artists, beach music bands, and regional touring bands. Mike is also a DJ, with over 30 years experience. Weddings, private, and large events are Mike's specialty. Mike is also a great entertainer getting the audience involved at all shows no matter if 50 or 1000 people are in attendance... Mike can get them going! Mike is also a soundman, and also has a sound system he rents out for other bands & events. Paul is a very talented guitar player that is by far one of the best guitarists in these parts, and a great singer! Paul has shared the big stage with many national artists and is the newest member of the band. Many people listen to him and are fascinated with his playing ability! Vince is known in these parts as one of the best drummers around, and also has a great voice. Vince spent many years playing gospel music and even toured nationally with a dove award winning gospel group. Vince has been there... done that! What makes this band sound so good is that these guys know each and every move the other members are going to make, and they play together and sound fantastic! Reflections II Band has received numerous awards such as "Best Local Band", "Best Cover Band", "Best Musicians", etc. They are very easy to work with during any event. Mike can assist and help you plan your wedding, private party, or event. Mike can also provide sound services for your wedding or private event.
The band is located in the Fayetteville / Sanford / Harnett County area and can travel up to 150 miles for your event. We have played as far south as Charleston, SC, and as far north as Lynchburg, VA. We typically play in the Sanford, Fayetteville, Raleigh, Durham, Benson, Dunn, Lillington, Lumberton, and adjacent areas.
