Absolutely loved the band.... How can they get better than this???? What can I say????

No one wanted to leave the dance floor, including me.....ONLY complaint is we needed a larger dance floor....I wish you could see photos.....we had a stage and dance floor built to accommodate the band.( dance floor was 576' and we could have lengthened it by at least half).

Over 600 people and the majority stayed close to dance floor.

We would highly recommend "Shimmer" to anyone... Clean music, Christians.... Love that part....and extremely talented.( a few of my high school friends are musicians and one is a former Band director and Symphony Band member).... Very impressed with music and musicians....

Great entertainers!!!!!

Need I say more???

I wish I was planning another event..... ( I need a month or two to recuperate) Thanks a million

Rick: they were awesome. I absolutely loved them and cannot count the number of people who came up to me just to compliment the band. Thank you for everything!

Villy S.

Hank, First off, thank you so much for bringing this amazing band to us! Our guests were complimenting them all night and the next day. We had so much fun. The entire dance floor was packed as soon as dinner was over. They sang a great variety of songs and a lot from the list we had requested. Neither Jay nor I have a single negative thing to say about them. My only regret is not having met them prior to the wedding so please tell them thank you from us. They may be hearing from some of our guests soon, as others in the area may directly request shimmer band as well for some of their events. Best band ever, and amazing dancing and partying because of them! Thank you again for everything!

Caroline and Jason M.


We just absolutely LOVED Shimmer!

From the second that we walked into the reception Shimmer was setting the mood for the evening. They professionally knew what lower key songs to play while guests were arriving and eating. During that set, they kept the music and ambiance upbeat while at the same time stayed in the background.

Every song they played was amazing! The band kept picking it up a notch as the evening progressed. The first song of the 3rd set, we had requested Sweet Caroline for the bride whose name is Caroline. The band blew it out! It was a highlight of the entire wedding weekend. From that point on, I don't think anyone left the dance floor. When they played Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars, everyone thought it was Bruno on the stage! All of our friends are asking for Shimmer's information and if they travel to Houston, which is where we are from. 

We requested a song that was not on their song sheet for Caroline and Stephen's first dance - The Best of My Love by The Emotions. They learned the song and it was unbelievable!  I wish I could post a video of their first dance - they LOVED it!

I could go on and on. The lead singers and all the instrumentals were absolutely the best! This band could go on tour! Jay made the whole process so easy as far as picking the songs and assuring me that the evening would be flawless - and it was! When they ended with Shout, my only regret is that it was over.

I cannot thank Shimmer enough for making our daughter's wedding reception such a huge success! Band's can make or break a reception. Shimmer made our reception unforgettable!

Linda B


Thank you so much! You guys were the absolute hit of the night! People have not stopped talking about how amazing the band was, that it was the best wedding band they'd seen, best wedding they'd been to, etc.

Everything was fantastic from our entrance to first dances, dinner music, toasts, the cake cutting and champagne toast, the epic hora, and all of the other fun party music throughout the night. It all went off without a hitch!

Music really makes the party and sets the tone for the night. Thank you for helping to make an already very special day that much better.

We loved having the opportunity to work with you and will definitely be singing your praises to all of our friends and family that are looking to book a band for events in the future.

I wanted to let you know that I think that Shimmer is an amazing and talented band. They were perfect for my daughter's wedding.  They are nice to work with, play great music, have great energy and were so nice to all of the guests.  They made everyone feel special and were so sweet to the bride and groom.  I really couldn't have asked for a more perfect band for the night.  Please use my review as a 100% endorsement.  If anyone needs to talk to someone who has worked with them I am happy to be on that list.

Jud S.

Father of the Bride


Just wanted you to know how pleased we were with the band Shimmer that played for our daughter’s wedding. We were a little concerned that we had not heard the band nor knew anyone that had used them in our area.

WOW! What a pleasant surprise. They had the crowd on the floor from start to finish with all the guest begging for more. I have had a dozen emails and text asking “Who was the band”. But the most important factor is that Mallory and John loved them and they helped make their night perfect. I would recommend Shimmer with the upmost confidence that they will make any event special and fun.

Thanks for all your help,

Don H.

Mother of the Bride


I can't thank you enough!!!! What a kind person you are to treat us to such a fantastic evening! "Music with Friends"was the perfect ending to a wonderful week in Charleston.  

We could not have picked a more perfect band for Katy's wedding! Thank you for suggesting Shimmer to us as one of the many great bands you represent. They did not disappoint.....WOW!!!

Shelly U.

Father of the Bride

‘Shimmer’ was incredible and absolutely MADE the reception.  As I mentioned to Jay last week, we have received an abundance of compliments and comments from our friends and guests – “where did you find that band?!”  “They were phenomenal!”, etc.  I think the true test is that the dance floor was jam packed until the very last song.  I felt badly that, in the frenzy of the bridal couple departing, I didn’t get to express my personal appreciation to Jay and the band.  Everything was happening so quickly and then the evening was over.  I did reach out to him by email last week, but would be very grateful if you would convey that again.

My daughter’s friends are definitely in the “marriage zone”, so of course, we will recommend any and all to you.

I really have appreciated your help through this effort and am so glad that we were able to work with you and Jay.

Reid C.
Father of the Bride


I can't say thank you enough.  We have had so many compliments on so many aspects of the wedding - but over and over, everyone has said how GREAT the band was. I appreciate how helpful and professional you were throughout the entire process - even when we overloaded you with emails.  All of the music was perfect - from start to finish.  You were right - it was never too loud.  You really helped to set the pace for the entire evening.  Interacting with the bride and the other guests was just wonderful - I know that everyone had a great time out there dancing.  Thankfully, I was back up at the lodge when Ryan was being hurled through the air...a memory was made for many with Shout!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!  You let me know if you need a personal reference at any time and I am happy to provide it for you. I know a couple of my friends took your card  - I think you will have more bookings after your night at RT Lodge..

My only regret is that I did not get to hug your neck and say thank you in person.

Mary Jeanette R.

Father of the Groom

I can’t take credit for booking Shimmer; my son made the arrangements. And I am so glad he did because I can’t imagine how anyone else could have been better.  

To begin with, his wedding was at our old country home.  We did everything we could to put lipstick on a pig and it showed, but the highlight of the evening was Shimmer.  When they arrived, they could not have been more professional or pleasant.  Everything about the set up was easy for us and then they were off to a little house on the property where the bride and bridesmaids were staying for a little quiet.

They began on a low key as they learned the crowd and what to play to keep the dance floor full.  That didn’t take long and the rest of the story is they were just fabulous.  They played long sets and took short breaks.  They raised the tempo as the night went on and finished on a peak.  What a band!

Since the wedding we have had conversations with many of our guests.  To a person, they have all praised Shimme...  They are the best!  Thanks for having them on your roster.  They create happiness.

Shimmer was everything I expected and more. They are true professionals and easily won the crowd over. Even today I am still receiving comments on how great the band was. My niece wanted to know if they could get Shimmer for her wedding in San Antonio Texas!!! I said "don't know but I can give you their number!!" What a super band with super musicians and top shelf singers. Words fall short.

Larry S.
Father of the Bride


I just want to let you know that Shimmer Band was absolutely fantastic on our wedding night. In fact, they were far better than even we expected and perhaps the best band I've ever seen in a party-type atmosphere. They did a fantastic job of mixing up hits from yesterday and today, the band itself and the additional horns sounded great, and the vocals were spot on all night. Our guests danced from start to finish and numerous commented on the band's overall quality. They absolutely played a major role in making Sara and I's wedding the best night of our lives, so thank you again.

Scott J.

We just arrived in Italy for our honeymoon. It was an amazing time I had multiple compliments on Shimmer. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that asked! Made the night perfect. I will be sure and email Jay our sentiments. Thanks for all your help in making our night special.

Andrew and Laura

Mother of the Bride

WOW!!!! what a great band. Both my husband and new son-in-law want to write reviews on the band, so I will let those two do the honor. I will say, I have never had so much fun!

Being new at having a wedding reception, I was so fearful of how things were going to turn out. Shimmer was so much fun, they were so easy to work with,and we had so many compliments on the band. That is just a short review to let you know about band. I love the band! I wish I had something else coming up again soon, so I could have them play again.

Thank your for your help.

Debbie B.

Father of the Bride

Debbie gave me your email address. I am the Father of the Bride. I am so thankful to you and the band. They were spectacular. The variety of music and the quality of the product were unbelievable. They were incredibly tight and the sound was great. Even more, they were so courteous to all. As the night progressed, they got better and better. They did not mail it in. They seem to feed off the crowd and the total effect was awesome. I have been to so many events where music and dancing were a cursory thing. Maybe the relative younger age of the crowd helped. But I think it was the band. "If you don't love this, you must be dead" is a comment I heard. They played their ass off and for one really appreciated the smiles and enthusiasm they displayed.

If there is anything I can do to promote these guys let me know. You are welcome to use us as a reference any time. Thank you and thank you again.

Roger B.

We were extremely happy with Shimmer. They were so much fun and they energy kept the party going. Very accommodating and we were very pleased. You were all so responsive when dealing with questions on last dance,etc and we appreciate the efforts given to make Brittany and Lake's night so special. They had a blast!!' Several people were so excited that we has shimmer playing as they had heard them at other functions. Nice sign when they remember the name if the band. Thanks for all of your efforts and we will definitely recommend you guys!

! wanted to take a minute to write and tell you how much we enjoyed having Shimmer perform at our wedding on September 21, 2013. Everything went wonderfully. The band members were so nice and accommodating. Jay was such a pleasure to work with throughout the whole planning process for the big event. He always responded in a timely manner and was very insightful & helpful. All of our guest are still talking about how amazing our band was. We danced all night and had a blast! I will certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a band for an event. I would like to plan another event just so I can have them perform again! Please extend my gratitude to the band. We are so grateful to them.

Brooke & Aaron K.
Bride & Groom


We were so happy with Shimmer's performance and they were by far my favorite part of the reception. I don't think there was a single person who wasn't dancing, and their music was so upbeat and definitely kept the crowd going. Also, it was such a pleasure to work with Jay and he did an amazing job at getting back to me promptly whenever I had a question or concern. We got many, many compliments and I'm sure when my friends get married I'll be asked who the amazing band was that played at my wedding!

Thanks again for everything. You guys are great!

Mariel S.


Just wanted to follow up on my previous note now that I have had time back from my honeymoon. Shimmer was unbelievable. They had great showmanship which is imperative to a successful reception but on top of that they're sound was unreal. I have received many compliments from friends and family and will be sending all friends who come to me your way with Shimmer recommended.

On top of their performance, Jay was so great to work with. He made me look like I actually knew what I was doing in planning a wedding with my wife and in-laws.

Thanks for all your help, and many thanks to Jay and Shimmer as well for making our reception the best night of our lives.

William H.


They were absolutely wonderful. The night was a huge success and I don't think there was literally more than 1 minute that there was not someone on the dance floor. They were so accommodating and flexible - everyone said it was one of the best weddings they had been to and the best bands they had heard - so we were thrilled!

Is there a way to put in a review/rate them? would definitely love to do that too!

Thanks so much!

This past Saturday the SHIMMER BAND performed at the wedding reception of our son and his new bride! We can't stop talking about it!

The band made for the most fun evening we've experienced at a function. The quest were out of their seats and on the dance floor. Even the pastor and his wife were dancing! We have attended many wedding receptions, but have never seen so many people having such a great time at one event! We didn't want the evening to end.

Now we have to find another event in which we can call on the SHIMMER BAND to make our evening a success. They're music, style and and performance was fabulous! We highly recommend this band and promise you will love it!

We loved Shimmer! They were on time, professional, and had a very wide range of music and really had fun with the crowd! I'm highly considering them for next year; Jay was great to work with! I'll hopefully get back to you tomorrow with a date and a budget.

Broadmore Forest Country Club


They did a great job. Jay was so easy to work with. This was my 19th gala and I think they were undoubtedly one of the best bands we have had.

Nancy K.
Deaconess Hospital Fund Raiser


They were great! Everyone loved them and had a great time! They got out in the crowd and really got them going! I did not want anyone "staying seated at their table" for the whole night which is why I really wanted a band, and they accomplished my goal for sure! Everyone danced the night away and I thoroughly enjoyed them as I think everyone did! They played a well rounded bit of music (something for everyone) and accomodated my request of Brown Eyed Girl when I asked for it so they get an A+ from me!!! I will def. recommend them to others as well as your services.

Thanks again for everything!

Shelly M.
Deaconess Hospital Fundraiser


I am thrilled to tell you about them! WE COULD NOT HAVE HOPED FOR A BETTER CELEBRATION LEAD BY SHIMMER MUSIC!! They were all professional and personable. Jay went out of his way to craft the playlist exactly to suit our ideas. There were musically superb, brought incredible energy to the dance floor, and interacted with everyone in a way that was engaging but not over the top. They absolutely met all of our expectations and actually far exceeded them. We got numerous enthusiastic comments about how great they were from all ages present. I also want you to know that Jay brought extra PA equipment and the group spent a little extra time helping provide sound support for the area where the ceremony was held. While he and I had talked about this in advance, he was cheerful and willing and this was outside of the requirements of the contract. I would give them the highest possible recommendation and would be happy to provide any more testimonials you might need. Lauren and Denton are on their honeymoon but I know everything I have said speaks for them too. Thanks for checking in. I only hope I have a chance to hire them again sometime.

Bill H.


I wanted to write you back and tell you how much fun we had with Shimmer at the Vandever wedding on June 25, 2011. The band was everything we could have asked for. They were true professionals. The evening flowed as well as it could have. They did a good job of letting the party come to them as the night progressed, then once everyone was ready, the band totally won the crowd over. We are very happy with our decision to use Shimmer and would recommend them to anyone thinking of using a band for their reception. Our crowd was about 50/50 young to old, but from the looks of the dance floor, everyone was having a blast. They played a wide range of music like we requested so there was something for everyone. We were impressed with their musical talent as well as their ability to interact with the crowd. The musicians were very talented and the singers were very versatile. All band members were very friendly. We have been told my numerous guests how amazing the band was and that we had the most fun wedding they had ever been to. Thanks for referring them to us. We are very happy with the outcome. Feel free to reply to me or Maggie.

Jewish Wedding

David, Emily, and our Families and Guests wanted to thank you so much for being a part of executing our perfect wedding. We were just thrilled with your energy, style and performance. You played all of the crazy songs that we requested and that we love to hear, and it made our wedding perfectly tailored to us. I cannot believe that I sang three songs with the band, into a microphone at the wedding, I LOVED doing it, and I'm so glad that there is no wedding video to have recorded that performance!

My dad had the best time performing with the band and it truly made his night and wedding weeking. Thank you for practicing with him in advance. He has been talking about his performance with you every day since the wedding.
David also wanted to let you know " just how incredible and professional the band was, and how every person has commented on having the best time."

David and I look forward to using you at future events. You were such a pleasure to work with. All the best.

Thanks so much for recommending Shimmer for Cari's wedding. We have heard from so many of our guests that they were the best band that had ever heard at a wedding. The dance floor was packed with both the older crowd and the younger guests. We wanted fun - and Shimmer delivered. Thanks again for your help in making Cari's wedding day so very special and please pass on to the band that we could not have been more pleased.

Corporate Event

I just wanted to write you to let you know how exceptional we thought Shimmer was at the retirement party on February 5, 2011. Since the party the guests have raved about how great you guys were and how great the music was that night. Your incredible energy from the moment we walked in, continued through the night without ever letting up! Everyone had a fantastic time and felt that you guys really made the event. One gentleman said that he had not danced this much in 20 years. I have never seen that many people dance at a company function especially a room full of construction folks.

The Band can really make or break a party and we were completely thrilled with everything you did to make ours a success. Please let everyone in the band know how much we enjoyed and appreciated your hard work. We will recommend you to everyone we know. Also, please feel free to have anyone contact us as a reference. We would look forward to speaking with any of your potential clients to let them know how outstanding you were.

Corporate Anniversary Gala

We just wanted to take a minute to thank you personally for all of your hard work and performance during our 15th Annual Gala. The event was a great success, and we've received much positive feedback from the attendees. The music was perfect and the musicians were adored by our guests. They brought a fantastic amount of skill and energy to the performance and, as evidenced by our guests' requests for an encore, were entertaining well into the end of the evening. I have already been looking into 2011 dates and would like to know if you have Nov. 12, 2011 still available? I know this is early in the game but maybe you can put a lose hold on that date for us.
