MIDNIGHT has received many compliments from performances.  We are asked back time and time again for many annual events and all of our bookings come from word-of-mouth as well as our Quality and Variety. 

Occasionally, we receive written reviews and comments on our performances.  Here are just a few:

Tim & Judy - 8/19/23

We were at the park on Saturday and heard you for the first time. We cannot tell you how much we enjoyed your performance. We have looked up your schedule and hopefully we can attend other times in Joliet.

Karen - 8/5/23

I was at your performance last night at Holiday Acres, and I have to tell you that I was blown away by your band. It was fabulous. You guys were great and literally play every song perfectly. I was so surprised. All the instruments were incredible. When I need a band, your band will be the first I call!!! Thanks for such a great night!

Jennifer - Festival - 7/8/23

Good morning!  I wanted to thank you again for a great event on Saturday.  We heard nothing but praise for your group.  The energy and fun your band brought was exactly what we were looking for.  Thanks again and I look forward to booking with you again in the future. 

Justin - House Party - 4/29/23

Midnight was amazing! They were so much fun! They sounded really good and even played saxophone, trombone, trumpet, and flute. It was so cool! All of our guests kept telling me how good they thought the band was. I would 100% hire them for another event and definitely recommend them to other people for their events! Thanks again guys!!!!

Keith - Wedding - 11/5/22

Just wanted to thank you and the guys for helping us provide a great time for our guests last night. Midnight received many compliments on how great you guys sounded. Everyone loved your music. Thank you so very much for making our evening special. Hopefully you’ll be playing in our area again soon. We will look forward to listening to your  great music again. 

Greg - Corporate party - 7/28/22

Overall Experience Outstanding! Its very rare I hire a band and audiences do not complain about something. I have only heard praises thus far and would hire them for another event.

Mike - Anniversary party - 5/21/22

Everybody commented on what a great band you guys are, Thank you Joe and the MIDNIGHT BAND members for making our Anniversary Party such a great success.

AL &Carolyn - Anniversary Party - 4/30/22

We wanted to thank you for playing at our 25th wedding anniversary.  Everyone enjoyed your music.  We believe you made new fans.  We know we will continue to see you when you play in the area.

Joe S. - Wedding - 6/12/21

We hired them for our wedding and they had EVERYONE on the dance floor. They were able to adjust their sound to fit our room so people could dance or sit and have a conversation. They were awesome and rocked our socks off! We also hired a DJ for breaks and they worked with him really well. Guests keep saying it was the best wedding they’ve been to and it really came down to these guys being incredible.

Jennifer - Birthday Party - 2/20/21

This band was so phenomenal. They have so much talent and great song selection. This band single handedly made my husband's surprise 50th birthday party an epic event. Do not hesitate to hire them.

Jackie B. - Party

More people commented on all of you last night far more than anything else.  My pickiest fiends and relatives were bowled over!  When you stared with "Beginnings" and the horn section started in, people talking, eating, etc. and just listened.  One of my sisters stopped and said that she had no idea that I could hire band with such talent.  I am so honored to have you play at me 50th birthday party!  I could not have asked for a better group of musicians or a better rendition of any song you played.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Will O. - Wedding

I want to thank you again for kicking ass last night! We have been receiving texts nonstop today thanking us for the great wedding! A few people have mentioned the great food, the beautiful ceremony, but every single person has raved about how great the band was. You guys were amazing, thank you so much for making the night so memorable!   Looking forward to stealing your tambourine at a future gig!

Claudia G. - Wedding

Midnight was incredible for our wedding last night. From scheduling with them 10 months ago, to staying in contact with us to plan the perfect set list up through the day before, we couldn't have asked for a greater performance! The song list is endless, and they managed to learn a few new songs for us as well. All songs were phenomenal, and we look forward to seeing the band at future gigs throughout the city. 10 out of 10!

Michael.  - Birthday Party

The event was a surprise birthday party for my wife, and it could not have been better. The evening was very nice, but Midnight's performance took it to a whole new level. They are not only gifted and talented musicians, they are so accommodating and simply a pleasure to work with. I am sure my family and friends will be looking to book them in the future. Thank you for a wonderful evening and an amazing performance.

Julian M.  - House Party

Thank you so much for the great performance by the band. It was an amazing afternoon for Dawn's party and you guys were a special part of it. I have already received many comments from our guests, including..."The band was unbelievable!", "We loved the band and the dancing" and "Great band!"

Keith R. - Wedding

Could not have been more pleased with Joe and the entire band, they were accommodating from the get-go and went above and beyond to make it a special day none of our guests will ever forget. We had numerous guests tell us our wedding was one of the best they had ever been to with a live band. From start to finish and sore legs the next day I can’t say enough good things about Midnight.

Zach C. - Wedding

These guys are great. Joe was super easy to work with and they played a killer set. They had high quality equipment and sounded so good! Their price was also great!  Would definitely recommend them to anyone for a great reception!


Linda L. - Family Reunion

They really rocked the house and we danced all night!! They accommodated our crazy Mexican family!!! They were all very nice and super talented!! You must hire them!!

Jessica D. - Wedding

The band was amazing!!! SO talented and fun! I received a LOT of compliments from guests at my wedding.  They were a phenomenal band and I would DEFINITELY rehire them! Thank you guys!

Mark J. - Wedding

Fantastic!  I highly recommend Midnight for any occasion, they answered all my questions and addressed our concerns. They are professionals and assured me that even though the venue was challenging (a beach wedding with limited power access) they just said " No worries, we'll make it work." And did they ever! I heard raves from everyone asking " Where did you find this band?" They were flexible, professional and sounded fantastic! They played a wide range of songs and played all the guests requests. Just go see them play, you'll see what I mean. Thanks Joe and Midnight for making our wedding rock!

Sandy - Gala 

Midnight was awesome! This was the first time we have had a live band after our dinner/auction fundraiser. It worked out great. They were a great band and a lot of fun to listen to. Lots of people up and dancing. They played a great variety of music and were very easy to work with. They also accommodated a special request without issue at all. I would highly recommend them and plan to hire them again next year!


Beth -Holiday Party  

They were great. Very personable. We plan to use them next year.


Susan - Wedding  

Midnight was great. I heard this group at my sister's birthday party and knew I had to have this band at my wedding. Many of my guests were telling me how much they enjoyed the band.


Sharron - Party  

"This band is fantastic! All my guests raved about their performance. Great time and they would make any party a big hit!"


Shannon - Dinner Dance 

Midnight was great! We got a lot of compliments from our guests about the wide selection of music they played. They played the right kind of music at the right time as well (dinner music vs. dancing music). Even took requests no problem. Definitely would recommend!


Lori - Dinner Dance  

I was a guest at the Metropolitan Club's event last evening, and wanted to drop a note to thank you for your help in bringing positive energy and entertainment to the event.
As a performer myself, I noticed and appreciated the finely-tuned details in your performance.  I spoke with your sound man, Mark, about the fully digital sound board and told him how nice it was to see that progressive setup.  I noticed the seamlessness between numbers in your set.  I also appreciated the variety of tunes, and found myself singing along to just about everything.  :)


Jeff - Show  

Midnight played a nice variety of music to appeal to a large crowd. They arrived on time, very professional, and easy to talk with. Our audience of over 300 people really enjoyed the band and several people asked if we knew where they were playing next! Highly recommend Midnight and hope to work with them again.


Graham - Wedding  

Call it 5 star or a perfect 10. Midnight was an incredible addition to our wedding and we were so lucky to have them. Not only did they accommodate our special song requests and announce our wedding party on relatively short notice, but they lived up to their word and had the dance floor packed the entire night. Can honestly say that the celebration wouldn't have been the same without them. True professionals and awesome musicians.


Ryan - Wedding  

Everyone at our wedding reception had a great time dancing and listening to Midnight's set! The band was willing and able to accommodate every request that we had from introducing the parents and the wedding party at the beginning of our reception to dedicating a few of their songs to our guests to monitoring our MP3 player filled with our music during cocktail hour and dinner. They were also very accommodating to our wedding guests by playing a few songs requested by them and incorporating them into their set. If we had to do it all over again, we would choose the Midnight band to play our reception without a doubt!


Kathy - Wedding  

Just wanted to give you a wonderful recommendation but couldn't find the place on the website to write a review.  You came and played in our back yard in Sleepy Hollow on Aug. 25, 2012.  You guys were the best.  Let me know where to go to write this positive review.


Kristina - Wedding  

Midnight was awesome! We had them play at our wedding reception in August, and it was an absolute blast. We no longer live in the area, so our party was full of relatives and friends we've lost touch with over the years. Who knew dancing was such a great ice breaker?! I think the dance floor was packed the entire night, and I can't thank Midnight enough for making that happen. We've received nothing but complements on the band, and I'm so thrilled we decided on live band for our night. In case you can't tell, I highly recommend them!


Linda - Wedding  

"You guys were awesome this past weekend at the reception for Keaton Lambert and Jessica Lambert. Lots of compliments. Wanted to send you a personal thank you but cannot find an address anywhere. FB will have to do. Thanks again!"


Chris - Wedding  

Midnight was an exceptional band. They were extremely accommodating with all our special requests, from learning new songs to altering songs they already played. The sound was great and the musical selection was fantastic. They had the dance floor packed all night. We had dozens of comments about how great the band was. Midnight definitely helped make our reception a special night.


Melissa - Community Event  

Midnight rocked our Depot Days festival and played a wide variety of new and old songs to please the crowd. They were very prompt on time and ready to hit the stage for our big event...We would definitely recommend these guys for any event big or small !!!! Thanks again guys


Jennifer - Wedding 

Played great music, not too loudly either-- people were able to converse during dinner. They played a great variety of music, and our young and energetic friends had a great time, as well as the older crowd!


Joey - Wedding 

I  just wanted to take a minute and send you and your guys an email and personally thank you for playing at our wedding last Saturday.  I know it was a long trip, and a bit challenging at times with the weather and such, but Scott and I were very pleased with your performance.
The song selection was great, and I know everyone had a fun time.  Thanks for letting my brother and Noah get up there and play a song too....I know they enjoyed being able to do that, and that was really cool of you guys!  I would recommend you guys to my friends in a heart beat....and working with you was easy and stress free, which is refreshing when planning a wedding!!


George - Community event 

We were very pleased with Midnight. Everything went very smoothly. I particularly like the fact that they leave few breaks between songs, so you get continuous music. I would definitely use them again and recommend Midnight to others.


John & Bonnie - Wedding 

Great, great job!! They played at our wedding in Galena, Illinois. All kinds of compliments from guests as well as hotel staff for their music as well as their cooperation with the hotel. Loved them from "Beginnings" to end. Would choose them again - no question


Sonic Innovations - Corporate Event 

Midnight is a fantastic band. They are a group of extremely talented musicians and you can tell they enjoy what they do as well. I would hire them anytime I needed a band in the Illinois area without hesitation. I'm an events manager and I deal with allot of different entertainers, these guys were easy to work with and everything was top notch.


Diane M. - Private Party 

Midnight was very responsive and professional with regard to all communications and requests. We enjoyed working with them, and we received so many complements on the band at our event! We were impressed that at least 3 different musicians sang lead and most played more than one instrument. I think they have a great sound and are a talented bunch of musicians. I would highly recommend them and definitely consider hiring them for another event.

Stephanie L. - Wedding 

This is an EXCELLENT BAND! We had many positive comments from our guests. They learned and played songs that we requested and performed at a top level. They are incredibly versatile and can cover a wide variety of music. While they were very friendly and entertaining, they didn't demand to be the center of attention. That was given to the bride and groom. We were amazed at how seamlessly they went from one song to the next without stopping. This was so much better than a DJ. There is nothing like a live band. We would highly recommend any songs that takes advantage of their horn section. This is an EXCELLENT BAND!! 


Heather S. - Wedding 

Midnight did such a wonderful job at our wedding. We were pleased with their performance and, most importantly, our guests raved about them. I had so many people asking me how I "found" such a good band. Not only were they talented, but Joe will keep in great contact with you before the event to ensure everything is exactly how you want. Thanks, Midnight!!


Review - Raider Fest  

For those of you, who know me well; know that I had the good fortune to work for a company that did security for concerts. I got to see and hear many types of music for ten years. Death metal, Rock, Rap, Raga, Classic, and Country, big stars and up and comers, last night I saw Midnight at Raider Fest, my first time, and these guy are good. If you ever have a chance to see them, you will not be disappointed.


Cara & Bryan - Wedding  

What can I say! The band was outstanding for our wedding.  Thank you so much for accommodating the last minute changes/hiccups. We really appreciated you working with us.
By all accounts, our guests (and our photographer), as well as ourselves, were delighted by the music played, and the dances danced and there were many complaints of sore feet the following morning - as well as misplaced shoes ;), which means Thumbs up to all the band.


Truman State University - Kirksville, MO  

Midnight was so easy to work with! We had absolutely no troubles at any point in the performance. They sounded great, and the students loved them. They are also incredibly friendly guys and I would recommend them to anyone in need of a good cover band.


Corporate Event - Rochelle, IL  

These guys were great!!!!!!  I would certainly use them again. Their music was as good as their professional appearance.  Their audio does not do them justice.   


Maribeth - Wedding  

We hired Midnight Band for our wedding on October 17th. It was the best part of our reception! They are so very talented, they looked great and were extremely accommodating. All of our guests loved Midnight - - we received so many comments on the entertainment. I HIGHLY recommend this band for any type of celebration!


Susan - Wedding  

This band is great!! Easy to work with, fun and FABULOUS music. I haven't been able to leave feedback because I've been too busy receiving phone calls from our guests complimenting the evening, and most of the compliments were on the music. Thanks guys! It was a fun night because of you. I highly recommend this group and would use them again.


Kristen - Birthday Party  

I hired Midnight for my mom's surprise 50th birthday party and they were awesome! Everyone really enjoyed them. They played a variety of music and were very professional. Joe was extremely helpful with any questions or concerns I had. Since it was my first time planning any sort of party, I would highly recommend this bad to anyone. People were requesting songs all night long. We were having so much fun we asked them to play for another half hour and they did. They helped complete our party.
