On Monday everyone still kept raving about the band!
Thank you guys so much!
I will get you some photos!
I cannot say Thank You enough. I was really worried about planning such a large party but I knew the band was all set - it was a load off my mind. If we do it again next year I am sure we will hire you AND try to get the horn section too!
Wendy & Group
Things got quite busy at the end of the night as we made our way to the Squire. I just wanted to pass a long a quick note thanking you for an awesome evening and for making the whole process of hiring a band for our wedding so easy. I really appreciate it. Have a great Christmas!

Dear Mike and Team -
This is the first time that I have had a chance to sit down with my thoughts to put together thank yous to the team who made Leah's day so magical -
As you know, music is really important to Leah and Terry. It was one of those details that they were really concerned with and to say that you delivered would be an understatement -
You and the band surpassed our expectations and then some - the play list was spot on - you read the crowd and gave them what they wanted and I think there were times that you actually gave them what they DIDN'T even KNOW they wanted judging from the folks that I saw up there on the dance floor and there was no Electric Slide, Macarena. Paradise by the Dashboard Lights or any other cheesy moment in site!!!!!
Having Stephen Bennett be able to join us was a true gift - the way that you and the band embraced his presence and played WITH him was really terrific - It was all just perfect -
If you are looking for a reference, you've got one in us! Please feel free to share our contact information with anyone who you think would benefit from hearing first hand just how wonderful you and the band are - of course, please share any part of this on any site that you would like as well - and, last but not least - PLEASE share this with the BAND -
With gratitude -
Sunny and Derek Krom
You and the band did a magnificent, magical job at Tammy and Joel's wedding! We sure hope our gang did not let you down on the dancing side because you all were over the top fantastic! Your renditions of Tammy and Joel's songs and "Wonderful World" were just right on!
Thank you so much for the gift of your music and Leslie!! She is the BEST! We hope to catch up with you and will keep checking your website for "gigs"!

I think the party was a success. You and your band were super! It was nice to see so many happy couples on the dance floor. I heard nothing but positive feedback the following night at the yacht club including many comments about 'the great band' we had."
Thanks so much, Sheree, West Dennis Yacht Club
"Dear Mike & Crew,
Just a quick note to say...WOW! Thank you for a memorable Wedding. You all were amazing & we're still hearing about it! Even the wait staff were on their feet dancing to you all. We truly look back on our wedding and are elated to have had you as part of it because your music and talent got everyone on the dance floor all night long, including my 85 year old Great-Aunt!"
Thanks again! Marin & Eric Knight
"This past weekend, my husband and I attended a private wedding in
Yarmouthport. And yeah, like most weddings you think, the same ole' theme,
the bride the groom and yes they were stunning but man--the band was out of
this world! Phenomenal even!
There I was under this magically lit tent, the smell of great food, the
presence of familiar guests and the background noise that captured every ear
in the crowd. The music was so good, you could catch people embarrassed as
they secretly tapped their hand on their thigh or moved their head to the
My ears were over-joyed and pleasantly fooled. The vocalist was SO good,
that if you turned your head away to comb the crowd, you might be fooled
into thinking it was the radio playing so as to give them a break.
She did a beautiful cover tune of Alicia Keys' "If I Ain't Got You!" She hit
the high's and low's right on! The clarity in her voice and her range--are
worthy of celebrity status! She made you feel like you want to sing just
like her--she was THAT good! The accompaniments, the horns, the vocalist,
the whole group! The selection of music was more than appropriate. Their
range of choices and their energy was contagious! They had people moving on
the dance floor, you could tell when they went home their feet hurt!
I no longer find it difficult to say "you can't find a good band on the
Cape." Our friends who had the wedding had the right idea finding this
group! I will forever easily find the words to say, "Get the Mike Dumas
Band, you can't beat live entertainment, AND THEY'RE GREAT!"
Thought I'd let you know. Hope to see you up there soon!"
"Thank you for helping to make our wedding such a fabulous event (6/26/04). EVERYONE loved the band. Your energy and enthusiasm certainly match your talent. We really enjoyed every minute of the evening and canít thank you enough for your part in making it so special. We will continue to pass your name along to friends and co-workers as a fantastic and reliable band and we hope to catch up with you sometime again soon Ė perhaps on the Cape. Any plans to play in Boston sometime? Have a wonderful summer and thanks again, for everything!"
"We had such a great time with you and the band at our wedding! When
you said "you will love what we do" - you were absolutely right! It was so fun, and I really appreciate your handling the wedding ceremony
music, too. Everyone raved about how much they enjoyed you - and even
our "noise sensitive" neighbor said to us the next day - "nice party
last night." I suspect he enjoyed your music, just like we did!
I especially want to thank you for learning "The Lady is a Tramp" for
my brother-in-law and his "extras" - it was so fun and my sister & I
both thank you. She captured it all on video and those who sang have
really enjoyed seeing themselves perform with the band.
A special surprise for us was when you played the Santana/Michelle
Branch song - along with "Someone Like You" - it was one of the first
songs George and I danced around the living room to when we were
falling in love. I didn't ask you about it because we were already
asking you to learn a song for us - but thanks anyway! We hope the rest of your stay in the Keys was just lovely - we stayed an extra week after the wedding and really enjoyed the chance to relax.
Thanks again for making our wedding a wonderful party!"

"Thank you so much for playing at our reception - the band was the highlight. The resort staff and guests all agreed that you were the best band they've ever heard! You really knew how to get people out on the dance floor enjoying themselves. Dave and I also really appreciated you learning a new song for us to dance to. You did it perfectly! We think you guys are great!"

"I want to thank you very much for your professionalism and follow up. You have been great to work with.
I have contacted and or worked with many vendors during the wedding planning process and I wanted to let you know
that you were by far the most accommodating and professional. I have really enjoyed working with your band.
Looking forward to dancing until I drop to your band on the 12th! Thank you very much!"
"Well, once again, I cannot find the words to thank you for your kindness and generosity. We are so
very fortunate to have folks like you that are willing to help us out. Everyone has been commenting
on how fabulous the entertainment was, and Leslie was a terrific addition. (Tyler, we missed you!
I hope you have returned home safely).
What a great day! From all counts at this point, we had somewhere around 550 people and
we're still counting the proceeds but it looks like about $89,000+ (we'll know for sure within
the next month or so as checks are still coming it). I'll let you know as soon as we pick the
date for next year. It will probably be Sept. 22, 2002 and I hope you'll be there again.
Again, thank you so much. I miss seeing you at Dino's!"

"Thank you so much for making our wedding on October 13 a great event! We
just got back from our two week honeymoon in Hawaii and everyone we have
talked to has been raving about you guys. You were terrific and it was so
fun to see everyone out there dancing the entire night. It was
perfect. We can't thank you enough!"
Beth and Todd Ryan
"Many, many thanks to you and your band for a wonderfully fun night. I'm hearing nothing but great things about you, so don't be surprised if you get some call backs for future jobs. I'm hoping our requests for the mike didn't throw you off too much. Thanks for obliging..Hope to see you soon..I'll let my gang know when you're in town! Again Mike..Thank you for making our special night even more special."
Pam (Wings Neck Centennial Celebration)
"We want to thank you and your band for coming all the way to N. Conway, N.H. on Nov.10th. You made our wedding
weekend the best. Both of us; being locals on the Cape and working in different niteclubs over the years, made
the best choice when we chose your band. When Jeff asked me to marry him I said 'sure - but not without the Mike
Dumas Band.' Looking forward to seeing you soon. Thanks Again!"
Robyn & Jeff White - Dennis, MA
"Thank You!! Everyone is still telling us how great the ceremonial music and reception were. The music is definitely what makes a good party! (my mom is still trying to take the credit for booking you guys)
I also want to thank you for the special requests you learned, that meant a lot!
We'll be back on the Cape next spring & we'll definitely look you guys up to see where you're playing."
Chris & Jill Psuik - San Francisco, CA
"Rick & I wanted to thank you for performing at our wedding June 12th in VT.
Everyone has spoken about how wonderful your band played.
We know that a good band can make or break a reception- you definitely made ours fantastic! Please add us to your long list of references -
we have nothing but the highest praises to be said about your work.
Thanks for helping to make our wedding a memorable event!"

Thank you so much for making our day and also letting our family share some song, singing, and guitar playing moments. I look forward to
hearing your group at future events."
Sincerely, Lynne Goslee - Falmouth, MA
"Applause...Applause... Applause... Applause!
Just a quick note to thank you for an outstanding job at Tessa's wedding. I think it was obvious that everyone had a great time, and to think you could have 2 gigs in one night... not bad.
Thanks again. Great job!!!"

"Just a note to let you know that the people at my daughter's wedding are still singing your praises. You did a fine job adapting to everyone's needs at just the right moment and still kept the wedding running smoothly.

"John and I want to thank you and your band for making our wedding so perfect. Everyone was asking us, "What band is that? They're incredible!"
People are still talking about you guys. Everyone was dancing from the age of 5 up to 87! We're dying to see you guys this summer!"
Thanks! Love, Samantha and John
"Andrew and I just returned from a wonderfully rejuvenating honeymoon trip (to New Zealand) We wanted to let you all know how much we loved the mood and music you created for our wedding reception back in October. We had a great time as did our guests, and we can't thank you enough for helping us put together such an amazingly fun day.
We wish you all the best and will spread the word about you guys as much as we can.
Again, many thanks!"
