MVP was awesome! Their playlist was a perfect blend of new and old songs. Loved their interaction with the crowd. They kept our guests motivated to dance all night. I would highly recommend them for your next event.

They were great. Easy to work with. They had ways of getting the non dancing crowd dancing, which was necessary with this crowd . No one had been to a wedding in so long they just wanted to socialize ! Always love your bands.

The band was awesome! They did an amazing job. We have heard them several times and knew they were the ones we wanted for our daughter’s wedding. Their work ethic impeccable and their talent unmatched!


Sep 05, 2020

MVP was absolutely amazing! I would hire them again in a heartbeat. Everyone loved them and they are wonderful!! I would recommend them to anyone. If I had another party or wedding to plan, they would be hired. 😊 Please let them know how much I appreciated them.

Band was great. On time and set up well in advance of event. Music was tight and high energy. Lots of positive comments from the crowd. Would definitely recommend. Communication from Torrance was timely. Great vocalists and musicians. Since they are experienced with weddings they made announcements and emceed the reception as well. Thanks.

I want to thank you and your band for playing at my daughters reception which was held at the Grand Bohemian hotel in Birmingham Al. on July 15,2017. Your band was excellent and everyone attending the reception enjoyed listening and dancing to your music. The group was very polished and professional ! It was perfect! All of my family and friends complimented on your performance. Thanks again for a memorable night,

We wanted to let you know the entire town is talking about how great the MVP band was at our daughters wedding Saturday night. People that weren't even at the wedding have told me they heard the band was great!!! They are telling us they are the best wedding band they have ever heard!! Thank you so much!

I have to say, the band was by far one of the most important things for both Daniel and myself. We wanted to make sure everyone danced and had a great time. MVP BLEW. US. AWAY. They were absolutely incredible--and many, many people have made multiple comments to us about how fantastic they were. I could have never asked for a more beautiful first dance. The fact that they included my grandfather is something so meaningful to me, I really can never thank them enough for that memory. My grandfather is 94 and said to me multiple times before the wedding, that this wedding was the reason he was staying alive. Being able to play with the band not only fulfilled my dreams but I'm pretty sure it fulfilled his as well, and all my family members. And the voices! It's not easy to fill Louis Armstrong's shoes, but it sounded incredible and I cannot wait to hear it again when we get our video back! The dance floor was packed the entire night. Torrance was awesome about keeping things moving and on track. We were running behind and he recognized that after dinner we should immediately start the horah--perfect move--got everyone up and dancing for the rest of the night. (They did one of the best horah's I've danced to as well!) They let us on stage to dance which honestly was one of my top three favorite memories of the entire weekend (the first being our marriage). :) Older people loved them, our friends loved them, even the 13 year old cousin of mine who found his way on the stage and stole the mic for a few songs loved them (which was one of the funniest things I've ever seen at a wedding). I hope the band enjoyed themselves because it was quite the party! I will 100% recommend MVP to any of our friends who are looking for a band. I'm hoping that I get to experience them again soon! Thank you so much for recommending them. I honestly would relive the wedding only to hear them again and dance...the rest was too stressful to ever want to repeat again. :) They made my wedding night. Because of them, I can honestly say it really was the best night of my life. Please pass this onto them! I really hope I'm able to hear them again!

MVP was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They really were. Guests could have danced for hours more. Please do not hesitate to use us as a future reference for them. There were a lot of guests that got their card. I hope they will have some future business as a result. Thank you so much for all of your help.

I have to tell you how pleased I am with the excellent performance of MVP Band.They were professional and very entertaining.  The director Torrance Scott,  is so kind and considerate. He met every request I had and followed my  program to the letter. Doing that made my 30th Anniversary Party a day I'll never forget. My guests are still talking about what a great time they had. The dance floor was never empty and often overflowing. People who were not even there are telling me they heard what a great band we had! The guest kept asking "how did you find your band? It's wonderful!". MVP Band was prompt on arrival and met our building exit time. I could not have been more satisfied.

Torrance, James and I can't thank you enough for the AMAZING job MVP did at our reception! We have already gotten texts saying "Your band was the BEST EVER - no one else's could ever compare" and "I would totally pay to see your band in concert" and "I want to get remarried just so I can hire your band." James said your all's rendition of Rocky Top has changed his life. Seriously, you guys were just beyond phenomenal - words can't even describe! We are so grateful to have had another Varlan/MVP wedding! Please tell the whole band that we are forever grateful to all of you for making our reception PERFECT.

We had a mid-day, corporate employee event on our campus and were thrilled to have MVP perform. They were 100% professional as well as very talented and entertaining. They graciously accommodated our requests for specific songs and worked so closely with our event emcee it was as if they had worked together before. Many employees commented on how much they enjoyed the performance. That being said, corporate folks aren’t always willing to get into the spirit and, in fact, remained mostly on the sidelines listening to the music rather than participating. MVP didn’t get discouraged and kept their energy up to the end despite the seeming lack of support on the ‘dance floor.’

Thank you, MVP!


Corporate Event

Rave reviews from our guests.  And exceeded Maggie and my expectations. 

They kept the dance floor full all night. They took no breaks (other than dinner) which kept the party atmosphere.

We requested and they played a lot of Motown and the like which was great. But I was impressed when late in the night they played current tunes (like uptown funk Bruno Mars).  Impressive band and honestly was what we hoped for as the cornerstone of the party.


Sep 12, 2015

I cannot thank you both enough for such a wonderful show at our wedding August 29 in Florence.  The band and song list was awesome and just what the groom and I wanted.  It surely was a dancing crowd and MVP did not disappoint.  Thank you for making our wedding SO much fun! So many compliments on the band! :)


Aug 29, 2015

MVP was great.  Off the charts good.  What a talented group of musicians.  Responses from students was good, too.

Kevin, MVP was AMAZING! Everyone gave us compliments on the band all night and the whole next week! I think it was one of people's favorite parts and it certainly was one of our favorite parts! Thank you for all your help! Please thank all the members of MVP too! We loved them!


Jul 12, 2014

MVP was AMAZING!!!! We were so impressed how great they sounded and how much they interacted. We LOVED THEM! My dad said a lot of his friends asked about them and couldn't believe they weren't at $10,000-15,000 band! Thank you so much.


Jun 14, 2014

I just wanted to reach out to you personally an thank you for everything you did to help us choose MVP for our band for our wedding. They were wonderful, beyond words actually. We are still hearing from guests about how amazing the band was. They were beyond talented, professional, nice (which isn't always a guarantee), and really made the night personal just by building a relationship with the crowd. We have reviewed Eastcoast Entertainment and MVP on The Knot and on Wedding Wire, but again, I just wanted to touch base personally and tell you how much we appreciated everything.

Hope you have a great Monday and rest of your week,

MVP was amazing! The literally kept the party going all night, just like I had hoped. Thanks for the recommendation. My guests loved the band and didn't want to go home.

It is insane how many compliments we have gotten about how fun the reception was and how the band was so good. The song choices were perfect for our crowd, the dance floor was totally packed, and people of all ages were having a ball. Thanks for making our special night even more unforgettable and perfect. Working with you was a joy. You are so professional and easy to work with. We just wish we could have been out dancing longer!

I am sorry for the delay but things are finally starting to slow down following our wedding. I wanted to reach out to you and thank you and the band for the amazing performance you put on. We had heard great things about MVP from JR and had high expectations for you. Not only did you meet those expectations, MVP exceeded it by a long shot. All of you were so professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. It has been 3 weeks since our wedding and our guests are still talking about that being the best wedding they have ever been too...particularly because of the band! Again, Brittany and I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of you, you helped make our day perfect. If there is anything we can do for you (review, testimonial, etc.) please do not hesitate to ask. It is the least we could do.

JR- we wanted to thank you as well for being a pleasure to work with and recommending MVP. My only responsibility in the planning process was booking the band. Thank you for making me look good, it doesn't happen often. You made the entire process easy for us and we greatly appreciate it. I also copied you on this email so you know what a great job the band did.

Thanks Again!

I just wanted to let you know that MVP was absolutely amazing at our wedding this past weekend (10/5). They made the party so fun, and everyone was absolutely raving about how great they were. In fact, we heard from many people that they were the best band ever - even people who go to a lot of weddings said this! MVP made the party energized and exciting, and I think the dance floor was packed the entire time. Also, they played our first dance song (which was not from their song list) completely perfectly, and we loved it so much.

In other words, MVP was perfect! We had the best time possible.

Thank you so much for helping to arrange everything. We appreciate your help and we will definitely recommend MVP on the wedding blogs and to our friends!

All the best,

MVP did a great job!!!


Sep 07, 2013

Were so great to work with throughout this entire process and made sure everything went smoothly. My husband and I just returned to the States from our honeymoon and I wanted to write to let you know how AWESOME MVP was at our wedding. Every guest we've spoken to has said it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to and I have to credit the band for most of that. I was nervous about the band at first because my husband wanted a DJ and had never heard the band before, but I had nothing to worry about. They brought the most positive energy to the event and were able to get everyone on the dance floor. I have a big family with lots of younger cousins and we've had a lot of family weddings recently. Most of my relatives don't dance at all at these weddings, but I saw almost all of them on the dance floor at our wedding- a huge accomplishment! My favorite thing about the band was that they seemed genuinely happy to be there. The female vocalist was amazing- one of my mom's friends comes from a very musical family (one of her kids is on Broadway) and she was so impressed with her vocals. The entire band was outstanding, professional, and so much fun. So, thank you for recommending MVP. Torrance, please pass this praise along to your bandmates as it is certainly well-deserved. You made our wedding the best night of our lives and made sure each one of our guests felt like part of the party.


Jun 06, 2013

I just wanted to let you know that the MVP Band was absolutely FABULOUS on Saturday night. We had approximately 265 guests and I think the dance floor was full the entire night - the bride and groom never left the dance floor!! I had countless guests comment on how fabulous the band was and that it was the BEST band they had ever heard at a wedding! Torrance was amazing to work with - they all interacted so well with the guests. I will HIGHLY recommend your agency and specifically, MVP Band, to anyone who asks!!

Thank you so much for all you did to make this possible - it will be a night that Matt and Lindsay will remember forever!

Highest Regards (and warm hugs for MVP Band Members),

Greetings from Puerto Rico! I'm on my honeymoon but wanted to take a minute to let you know how awesome MVP was this past weekend performing at my wedding. They were about as professional as they come and sang all of the songs I had mentioned our guests would like. Towards the end of the night they read the crowd really well and made sure everyone was active on the dance floor. Almost every guest commented on how great the band was. After this performance and the way in which Torrance and crew involved everyone in the celebration, I will definitely be recommending MVP to anyone looking for a great, active party band that sounds amazing and can play anything. Thanks again for the great recommendation. We couldn't have been happier on our big day!


May 26, 2012

They were somewhat higher that our usual budget, but following dance and since, everyone I raves about the band, saying it was AWESOME, best band ever, what excellent vocalists they had, very versatile, etc., so hopefully, that means it was worth it! (You always have to trade off something else, which either means food or alcohol.) Torrance was easy to work with and the other band members also were personable and pleasant! Several people got their cards and others have asked where we found them. I certainly would recommend them, and I suspect we will want them again!

We thoroughly enjoyed having MVP perform at the 2012 Bay Heart Ball! They played a soft jazz dinner set for us, then played a high energy post presentation dance set that everyone loved! The crowd stayed and the Chairs of the event loved the band. I would highly recommend them since they were so entertaining and also great to work with. They rolled with our timeline changes without any problems, which was very much appreciated. I will be passing along their information to some of our other offices so they can perhaps use them in the future. Thanks again!
