"Sophisticated" describes her look. "Dynamic" describes her stage presence. Her voice... "Phenomenal." Sometimes meteors are mistaken for stars while real stars go unnoticed until you're close enough to see how bright they shine. Michel Jons is that far away star, moving ever closer to the moment in time she claimed long ago. Never mind the spotlight she's bringing her own illuminating talent and powerful voice to enlighten the ears, minds and hearts of the world. Michel is writing her own history due to her ability to own a song. She is an ultimate song stylist inspired by but not emulating the great vocalist from the past and present. Tina, Aretha, Patti, Gladys, Chaka, Billie, Natalie, Etta and even Patsy Cline were major influences for Michel and you can hear them all when she opens her mouth to sing. And sing, she has; 15,000 people at the Narni Music Festival (with William Bell and Trudy Lynne) in Italy, 10,000 at Phillips arena (sang the National Anthem) before an Atlanta Hawks game, 30,000 during the 1996 centennial Olympic Games, 12,000 at the Sweet Auburn Festival and well over 100,000 people when she's performed at the Atlanta Pride Festival (with CeCe Peniston and Debbie Gibson). Large numbers are great but Michel has performed every year for television and movie actress Sela Ward's birthday party at her residence with fifty people in attendance. Michel has opened for: The Gap Band, Howard Hewitt (formerly of Shalamar), Percy Sledge, Chaka Khan and Georgia Music Hall of Fame Inductee "William Bell" during his induction as well as sang background on one of his recent CD releases and toured Italy with him.

Parents of the Bride

I am forever indebted to you for recommending the Michel Jons Band to us for our daughter’s wedding. The band was fantastic. The keyboard player, who entertained us on the piano during the cocktail hour, was wonderful and from the first dance till the end of the evening we were thrilled with the whole band. Not only was Michel herself a superb musical leader and vocalist, she really knows how to emcee the whole reception "show." From the introduction of the bride and groom to their final sendoff after "Last Dance," they held the audience captive! We cannot recommend Michel and her band enough!

Many, many thanks!!!!!

Michel and the entire band were incredible. They went above and beyond on all levels, as each member was courteous, on time, self-sufficient, and talented. We already knew they were good, but Michel was such a professional from start to finish and just a pleasure to work with. I can't tell you the raving compliments our guests had to share with me about this group - even the bar staff was singing and dancing as they poured the drinks. Thank you for making it an easy and fun experience, and I am definitely a Michel Jons fan!

I hope to work with you again, too.

Take care,

Heather and the band were 100% INCREDIBLE. Thank you so much for everything you did to help make our wedding night a complete dream come true.

Every single person, young and old, were in total awe over the band. The buzz in the room was electric over Heather and the others. Everyone wanted to know where they came from, who they were and were hands down beyond impressed that we had such talented artists performing a full show with costumes, dance moves, lighting, seamless song transitions, horns, just and the most incredible voices at our reception. Our first dance, Darius Rucker, was spot on beautiful. He did a wonderful job. The band even stepped up last second for Patrick and his Mom's song when the iPod had issues. Their professionalism was top notch and we appreciate every ounce of attention and detail the group took to ensure the night was a huge success.

I even had multiple people comment on how beautiful and fabulous Heather looked toward the end of the night with the Charlotte wind blowing through her hair....it was pure magic.

A HUGE thank you to you, Heather and the band too for allowing Patrick to perform Ice Ice Baby. It was a huge hit and completely melted my heart. : ) Check him out for yourself - he ain't too shabby http://youtu.be/ee1UmdAVDnk

Thank you for everything Tony. You have been wonderful to work with and we look forward to continuing to recommend the Heather Hayes Experience to ALL of our friends and family whenever we possibly can.

Love,

I cannot say enough good things about the Michel Jons band. They played at my daughter's wedding reception on June 22, 2013 and they were incredible! Michele is the ultimate professional and performer. We exchanged e mails and phone calls before the wedding as she wanted to make certain the band played every song we requested. She also wanted to take care of any special requests. Michele is also a parent and understood just how special this was for us and is so attentive to every detail.

I was so thrilled we were able to book them prior to the wedding but I am ecstatic after the fact. They got the crowd dancing all night with their fantastic sound and voices. Michele interacts with the crowd, as do the rest of the band and ensure a great party! I would rebook them for another event in a minute. My phone rang off the hook for two days with requests for the band's name they are just that good! If you want a band that will help create a fun, wonderful, amazing party for your guests this is the band.

Wow! I can not thank you and your band enough for the amazing job you all did at John and I's wedding last weekend. I apologize for taking so long to congratulate you all as we just recently returned from our honeymoon (which, by the way, was amazing!). You can not believe how many friends and family members CONTINUE to rave about your performance. I know I told you ahead of time that we loved to dance you and you completely filled my desires to do so during my wedding! It was perfect! I have received comments from friends that you all were the BEST cover band they have ever heard. Once "Proud Mary" started, there was no stopping! Thank you again for your sweet words to John and I at the end of our wedding and your entire team's professionalism. You all were truly amazing and truly made our wedding the most memorable wedding! Best of luck to you all in your future endeavors and expect calls from people in North Carolina!

Corporate Party

The Michele Jons Band was absolutely FABULOUS! AWESOME! They were one of the best bands that I've ever seen. I received numerous compliments during their performance, as well as after. I imagine the compliments will keep coming for the next little bit. They definitely are a conversation piece around town. And the icing on the cake: Michele (and the rest of the band for that matter) is an absolute jewel and a pleasure to deal with. I couldn't be happier with my choice.

I just wanted to drop a quick word of thanks again to you and your wonderful band. You all provided "a night to remember" for us and we are so appreciative! You guys have a good thing going because you really know how to respond to the crowd and I think that helps to make you a great band. Not to mention that each of you is so very talented!! I'm positive that this year we had more members dancing throughout the night than ever before. That meant that they were enjoying the music and having a great time with you super musicians. In years past, we have heard many complaints after the dance that the band was so loud that people couldn't talk or visit, particularly through dinner. I haven't heard one complaint from anybody, it's all good!!!!!! Thank you so much for a job well done, for being so gracious to work with, and we'll look forward to another time in Hickory.

Sincerely,

Carole C.

Again they did an awesome job all around, keyboardist during cocktail hour, the tonight show, everything went great. Michele did a great job of reading the crowd and working with me and the hotel. I couldn't have asked for better!

I just wanted to let you know that Michel Jons was the most incredible band that I have ever heard. In our time, we have attended many fabulous Bar Mitzvahs and weddings with great entertainment.
However, without a doubt, Michel Jons was the best band I have ever heard. Not only was their music beyond incredible, they were amazing entertainers and so friendly.

The most important thing to Josh, the groom, was the band. He hired them and told me they were outstanding. He set the expectation level very high. It's hard to believe, but they were much better than Josh had even described.
I can't wait to hear them again!

Bride

From the first song to the last, Michel Jons and her band were pure entertainment. Coordinating their song list before the wedding was very easy and Michel was very helpful with song selection. On the night of the event, our guests were full of compliments and the dance floor was packed all night! They are by far one of the most energetic and engaging bands we have ever seen perform. We have never seen our fathers and uncles dance the way they did that night. We would highly recommended this band. East Coast Entertainment and the Michel Jons Band provided us with an outstanding event and exceeded our expectations!

Thanks,

The band was incredible!! Everyone had such great things to say about them. One couple
said it sounded like Michel was channeling Aretha Franklin.

I can't thank you enough for helping me with the music.

The Allegro musicians also did a beautiful job with the ceremony.

All in all it was great day!

Thanks again!

Our daughter Helen's wedding was this past Saturday night at Crescent Bend in Knoxville. We could not have been more pleased with Michele Jon and her band. They were fabulous!! Everyone loved them. They did an excellent job from start to finish. Their selection of music was right on target, they engaged the guests without embarrassing anyone, and were a class act. Thank you so so much with your help in selecting them for our wedding. Friends took her cards and asked Judy and me how to go about hiring them or other bands. Hopefully, you will be hearing from some of them

My mom said that the band stayed and talked to them a while after we left and that they were so nice. Thank you so much for all of your help! Bob and I love to dance so a great band was important to us and you hit the jackpot, We couldn't have ask for a better band. Hope all is well! Thanks again for all of your help.

Social Gala

Our Gala was a huge success and The Michel Jons Band was better than ever! They are so professional and a delight to deal with. There's no question that they were instrumental (no pun intended) in making the night. We had people on the dance floor within seconds of their first note and some never left until their last note. On top of that, Michel and her band are ALL such wonderful human beings. Words can't express how pleased I am with our overall experience. This is exactly why I wanted them to return to Chattanooga.

I want to thank you for a fabulous evening for Candace and Jeff. Everyone wanted to know where we found the band and said how fabulous you were! Candace so appreciated your many phone calls and email exchanges. You were an absolute joy to work with. I hope you enjoyed Candace's "Ice Ice Baby". I was a little concerned when Candace looked around and saw she had a "Back up Band" that she might not give the microphone back. Seriously though, you and your group were absolutely incredible. It is so obvious that you love what you do. Thanks again,

We just got back from our honeymoon yesterday! Michel Jons was outstanding! I have gotten compliment upon compliment about the band...many friends who are getting married in the next year seemed very impressed and interested in the band. They were easy to work with and highly entertaining. Michel even played some special requests for my dad that they had to learn and it was a surprise for my family. They were a total hit.

They also played at my brother's wedding in Hilton Head 3 years ago and we knew then that if we were able to get this band for my wedding that we would. They truly made the night! I have not received any pics from the photographer yet but I plan on sending the band pics to Michele. I would recommend them to anyone.
