Testimonials

OMG, WOW! I seriously cannot say enough good things about the Gary-Michael Dahl Band. This band is INCREDIBLE and so much more! We were lucky enough to book them for a company holiday party this year, and they just blew the party away. EVERYONE commented on how awesome the band was. Gary and his band were super friendly and accommodating to our venue and party schedule. We would have them back at any future event in a heartbeat. The whole band is just phenomenal, and you will not be disappointed. (Gig Salad verified review)

“Fantastic group and the best band in the history of the festival! Amazingly versatile music repertoire with great vocals and instrumentalists. We’ve never seen that kind of crowd reaction from a jazz band before at the festival. They ended the show with a Michael Jackson medley and a Caribbean Soca jam. Festival was a total success and we’ve already asked them back next year.”– River Oaks Jazz Festival

“Best band of the festival. Great musicians. With them performing, we didn’t need any other acts.” – Huntsville Tourism Week Festival

“Great band and a joy to work with” – (Pearland Town Center)
