  • Dave,Irene and the band were amazing ---- just the greatest band and the greatest to deal with! They played at my daughter's large wedding last month and they had everyone up dancing the whole time- even the few people who don't typically dance. I have been to a million weddings and other events and this was by far the best band I have seen. If you want a high energy band, pick The Dave Macklin Band. I am still getting compliments about them. They are also so easy to deal with in all the planning before-- very responsive, very warm, and very professional. We are just so happy they played at their wedding. They are the absolute best!
