Shimmer was amazing. Really one of the best we have ever worked with. I was so pleased and so were the clients. I will certainly be recommending them left and right as we start to look for fall events.
Thank you so much!
Francis Marion Hotel, Charleston, SC February 13, 2012
Terry - 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.
Deaconess Hospital Fund Raiser, Evansville, Indiana 10/08/11
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, Asheville NC 12/03/2011
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.
Dear Matthew and Shimmer,
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.
Love, Emily and David H. (June 15th, 2011)

Matthew - 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.
Taylor V. (June 25, 2011)
Matthew, 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.

Dear Jay - 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.
Stefanie J. - Marketing Director (Nov 20th, 2010)
Matthew - 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. (July 10th, 2011)
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!

"Shimmer was great, I received complements about the band all night, thank you."
The Can Can Ball
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!
Dyann R. (Mother of the Bride)
August 11, 2012
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!
Erin M. (October 20th, 2012)
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. (February 9th, 2013)
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. (June 22nd, 2013)
I 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.

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!

Good morning Rick,
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.
