Some of thements from our students was, This finally feels like a real college campus People are asking me when I'm going to have them back. Thanks for all youjr hlep in making this event a success. -- Darrell L, Milwaukee, WI, 12/7/2009
    Mike and the group were punctual, knew what they were doing and were very easy to work with. They are extremely versatile and very talented. Would definitely rmend the group for any type of performance. -- Jo A, Chicago, IL, 11/14/2009
    Everyone had a great time! Terrific playlist!! Did not disappoint. -- Nicole T, Berwyn, IL, 10/10/2009
    Wow, wow, and wow! This band was excellent! They had everyone at the reception on the dance floor! We had a pretty diverse crowd - young and old - everyone enjoyed Mike and his band! We are still getting manypliments from all of the guests. It was a great mix of music (everyone loved the polka!) Everyone got a kick out of watching Mike play his guitar with his tounge! They were just perfect! You can't go wrong. (Plus, they were all very friendly) -- Joy L, Chicago, IL, 8/29/2009
    Kick aXX! Highly rmend - very nice people - very talented. Rave reviews from my wedding guests. -- Amy G, Chicago, IL, 8/22/2009
    WOW! Mike and all were great! They really made our reception 't a song they couldn't play and they in many cases sounded better that the orignal artists. They got the party really stoked up and even had my grandparents out there cutting a rug. It was awesome to see Mike play the guitar with his mouth, how cool! We would definately hire them again. -- Lanise P, Madison, WI, 7/25/2009
  • Mike Dangeroux was a perfect match for our event. Our zoo was hosting its first concert and we were unsure of what to expect. The band arrived on time, set up quickly and efficiently, started on time, and played solidly for 1.5 hours. They were tuned into our audience and did a great job getting the crowd involved. They sounded wonderful--the volume was perfect and the musicians seemed to genuinely enjoy themselves. Mike was a breeze to work with. We would definitely book them again. -- Molly H, Wheaton, IL, 6/26/2009
  • Mike Dangeroux, very professional. Returned phone calls and E-mails quickly. Very willing to work around our budget. Very talented. Made our wedding reception very lively. He even let my 10 year old daughter sing a song with the band. I got nothing but goodments from everybody that was there. Awesome job!! Thanks Mike. -- Beth L, Mokena, IL, 6/14/2009
  • When we decided we wanted a band rather than a DJ for our wedding reception, it was because we didn't just want music, we wanted to entertain our guests with a live show. Mike and the band did that and more! They were so professional and gracious and really set the tone for the latter part of our reception. They were very amodating to song suggestions or requests, and they kept a crowd out on the dance floor the whole time! We felt like the entire playlist was customized just for us. On top of that -- we were wholly impressed at the level of talent of each member of the group. Amazing! Thanks for a great time! -- Anne R, Madison, WI, 5/16/2009
  • Mike and band were awesome. I could not of asked for anything better. it seemed as if every guest asked who he was and how great he was. I would hire Mike to play any event I have. My wife and I have been trying toe up with excuse to have another party just to hear him again. -- Chad O, Terre Haute, IN, 4/18/2009
  • Mike Dangeroux and his band were awesome. We had a 6 person band with a male and female vocalist for out wedding and they sounded amazing. From jazzy background dinner music, to rocking out Skynard, they were tight, professional, and a lot of fun. I would absolutley rmend them, especially over your typical wedding orchestra that sounds like every other wedding you've been to. -- Jim H, Chicago, IL, 3/28/2009
  • Mike and his band were AWESOME. I was nervous at first booking someone I never seen before. He was super polite and fun. Mike also was good withmunication and follow through. The band was loved by everyone at our school. Parents are calling me and emailing about them because the kids loved them and so did the parents. I can not say enough about this band. I am going to promote them for another school function. I would also go and see them if they ever played around my area again!! -- Jacki K, Park Ridge, IL, 2/20/2009
  • Amazing! I was worried booking with out hearing them live, but the minute they started playing any worries disappeared. They did everything we asked, even if it was a last minute request. You will not be disappointed with this band, they were truly a 10 and our guess loved every minute of it! We have been receiving calls week telling us how wonderful the party was, especially the band! -- Lory M, Racine, WI, 1/17/2009
  • i am not casually clicking 5's. this band was what made our wedding. they were so talented, fun and just nice people to deal with on every level. all our friends and family were blown away and we loved the song selection - they were very attuned to what we were about. they gave us an encore that brought down the house because people were having so much fun. i'd rmend them to anyone but i don't have to because all my friend already love them after the wedding. please share thesements with Mike. thanks so much. -- Beth J, Evanston, IL, 11/22/2008
  • Mike and Raw Dawg gave and outstanding performance and was a pleasure to deal with. I would highly rmend this group and will have them back again. -- Rich F, East Dubuque, IL, 8/31/2008
  • I hired Mike and his band to play at our 30 year wedding anniversary party for about 80 people, with ages ranging from children to grandparents. We had a pig roast, so we asked Mike to play a lot of Jimmy Buffet, Caribbean (steel drum), Regge and such. Everybody was thrilled with the music - we did a limbo, people sang along, it was great. He even threw in a Sinatra song on request. I was very pleased with the band's professionalism, friendly attitude and talent. Numerous guests asked me where did you ever find these guys? I will hire him again for another party, and many of my guests also plan to hire him. Great party band. -- Richard M, Delafield, WI, 8/30/2008
  • Mike was extremely amodating and professional. We got severalpliments from our guests. Thanks Guys! -- Mike L, Oak Park, IL, 8/31/2008
  • Mike Dangeroux and his band, The Tropics, were absolutely fantastic. Their music was great and the band made my wife's birthday party a truly memorable experience. Mike had all of my guests, as well as many of my other dock neighbors in the harbor, dancing all night. I look forward to having them play again at our next dock party! -- Eric D, Chicago, IL, 8/16/2008
  • The band was fantasic. They set a great tone for a great party. Everyone enjoyed themselves and loved the band. Great job! Valerie st. Charles, IL. -- Valerie C, Saint Charles, IL, 8/16/2008
  • Band was , professional, and very talented..I was extremely satisfied and all my guests loved the band. I was very happy with them and highly rmend them for a party and or event. -- Su G, Mchenry, IL, 7/26/2008
  • I have nothing but great things to say about Mike and his band. Not only was Mike on time but he was early. The band was very professional and kept the crowd involved through out their performances. I could have not asked for more! I will rmend them to all my friends and family. Thank you once again Mike. Grace -- Grace W, Chicago, IL, 7/12/2008
  • We used a 3-piece steel drum ensemble from Mike's group for a graduation party. Everything was great! The pricing waspetitive, the group was professional and our guests had nothing but good things to say about the music. They really turned what could have been a ho-hum party into memories for everyone involved. -- Judy R, West Chicago, IL, 6/7/2008
  • We had 120 guests. We had Mike provide a 7 piece band. They absolutely made the party. Mike learned our first dance song and gave it some Dangeroux flavor. You will not go wrong with his band. A DJ just cannot touch the energy, flavor, funk and showmanship that the talented musicians with Dangeroux Mike Music bring to the table. We didn't even bother picking songs. Mike is a turn key vendor and the final product is worth every penny. We could not have been happier and hope to attend an event/wedding they play in the future. -- Steve M, Lombard, IL, 5/24/2008
  • Our event was a huge success and we received countlessments on the music. Mike and the rest of the band were professional, talented, energetic & cheerful. We had them play ambience music as a quartet during the cocktail phase of the evening. Later, as an 8 piece band, they rocked the house with funky favorites, gladly playing requests. The band was amodating when we were forced to make a last minute change to our end time, which was much appreciated. We are planning to book them next year again! -- Heidi B, Chicago, IL, 4/12/2008
  • We would definetly consider hiring them for our next event. They were great in handling our party. -- Yesim A, Bolingbrook, IL, 12/28/2007
  • Mike was extremely organized and professional prior to the event which provided me with afort level my money was being well spent. As far as his talent he is the finest most entertaining guitar player I have seen. He is wee in my home anytime. -- Tom L, Warsaw, IN, 9/2/2007
  • My husband and I prior to our wedding decided to look on Gigmasters for assistance in finding a band. As soon as we heard their samples, we knew immediately they were the band. Their song list was OUTSTANDING. My husbands family stated that they never dance and didn't think they would, but that all changed once they heard this band. They made a family of non-dancers, get up and dance. Mike Dangeroux, made our wedding wonderful. -- Margie S, Racine, WI, 9/1/2007
  • Hello Mike, Just wanted to give you a big thanks for entertaining at my wedding! For all of you that read this want to tell you that you can't go wrong with Dangerous Mike Music! I was just married on August 25th. I am a musician myself and I couldn't have thought to hire a DJ when almost all my friends I invited to the wedding were also musicians. So from a musicians point of 't let you down, he and his band were phenomenal! I also had Mike hire a couple of horn players. Sax & Tombone. That was a really good Idea!! Now to the ! You really had people dancing! Thanks,Dave -- David R, Crystal Lake, IL, 8/25/2007
  • Mike Dangeroux and his band were fantastic from beginning to end! To begin with, he was extremely helpful when I first hired him, working with me to amodate my budget. He answered my e-mails and phone calls promptly (something that in my experience doesnâ &trade t always happen and can be just that much more stressful when youâ &trade re the bride). At the wedding, they were just so much fun and truly added to making the night a special one. They let me and my friends sing at the mic and seemed to enjoy it rather than be bothered by it. The island music (which we requested) was great and the band was tight. If I could go back and redo the night I wouldn't change a thing! -- Debra B, Chicago, IL, 8/17/2007
  • Mike was aodating from beginning to end. Response from our client was extrememly positive. -- David S, Northbrook, IL, 6/7/2007
  • Mike exceeded my $700 tip. Mike was aodating , professional and is extremely talented. If I were a teacher they would get an A for performance, A for talent and A for professionalism. Todd Page Groom -- Todd P, Chicago, IL, 5/19/2007
  • Great time, called Mike for a school-sponsored Caribbean Dinner. Everyone loved them! -- Diana L, Bloomington, IL, 2/25/2007
  • We did not know what to expect hiring a band off the interent, but Mike and his crew not only put on a great show for our event they drove through a blizzard to play. With out a doubt some the best talent we have ever hired from a band. Thanks for everything Mike hope to see you soon. Auto-Wares Inc Grand Rapids, MI -- Freddie B, Grand Rapids, MI, 2/3/2007
  • Mike is absolutely fabulous! He and his band are consummate professionals in every sense of the word: very amodating, very punctual, and incredible performers! They played for our annualpany party to rave reviews. Our theme revolved around a Caribbean cruise, and his steel drum orchestra fit the venue perfectly. Mike was in frequentmunication with me from the time I asked for the bid on Gigmasters until the party was ended so I never had to worry about the music. I highly rmend him and his band! -- Suzanne D, Milwaukee, WI, 1/20/2007
  • Mike came with his reggae band to our Pumpkin party. They were absolutely wonderful. They got the crowd up and dancing. The majority of the group hadn't heard reggae before and they loved it. I would rmend them to anyone. They were very professional, on time and did a great job especially considering it was very cold and the party was outside!! -- Elizabeth K, Laingsburg, MI, 10/14/2006
  • Mike and the crew were awsome. Everyone at the party enjoyed the music and still take about the band. They showed up just as planned and filled the outside air with great tunes, perfect for our end of the summer party. A++++++++++ -- Pete C, Oswego, IL, 9/30/2006
  • We loved the band. This was for a neighborhood picnic with about 160 people of all ages. Everyone loved the band and their music. Mike and his band were very friendly and professional. As the date closed in I e-mailed Mike a few times and he always got right back to me. He called to let me know when he would be arriving so I didn't have to worry. I was more than 100% satisfied!! -- Cindi S, Libertyville, IL, 9/9/2006
  • Mike and his group were wonderful and got everyone involved!!! Iwould highly rment them to anyone who wants to have a good time!!! -- Laura D, Darien, IL, 9/2/2006
  • Mike, Shaka B and Raw Dawg II did an outstanding job for us. I believe the band had a good time and our crowd of 400 - 500 enjoyed theresleves. We hope to have Mike back to our area next year for another production we are putting together. Thanks Rich Fluhr FreeTime Entertainment, Inc. -- Rich F, East Dubuque, IL, 7/22/2006
  • They were awesome! They sang, involved the audience, they danced, they were very talented. Thanks, I hope to have youe again one day soon. - Traci -- Traci W, Northbrook, IL, 7/20/2006
  • Mike Dangeroux and Soundstation were AWESOME. My husband's 40th birthday party was a success and my guests are still raving about how good the band was. I really enjoyed the music but more importantly, they were professional, prompt and amodating. My party was running a little behind schedule, but Mike and his band were sensitive and really waited until the right time to start the music. I plan to hire them again, and again! Thanks! -- Tracie S, Palatine, IL, 7/15/2006
  • Mike Dangeroux was great!!! We had them play at our wedding reception in Dayton, Ohio. Everyone at our reception thought they were outstanding & asked how we had found them. There was never a lull in the dancing either. The dance floor was covered all night. We even asked them to stay a little later and we agreed on an amount quickly and they were vey aodating. I would rmend them to anyone who is looking for a great band and a band that goes above & beyond. -- Kiran B, Dayton, OH, 6/10/2006
  • Performing at our wedding, Mike Dangeroux and his band of hyper-talented musicians brought down the house! In fact, they were *unbeleivably* good! Starting out with some appropriately mellow jazz during the dinner portion of the evening, they soon cranked up the energy and had everyone rocking out on the dance floor. Their arrangements were original, their playlist was diverse, and their execution was impeccable. Everyone we spoke with at our wedding (nearly 150 guests)mented on how much they enjoyed the band. Mike and the boys truly made a great event even more memorable. Did we mention that they were friendly, gracious and amodating, too? We can't say enough good things about them! -- Daniel G, Chicago, IL, 4/22/2006
  • They were excellent - Mike played to our group - he quickly assessed the atmosphere and played for it (it was a Holiday party, not anniversary party). Had greatments from everyone that they thought they were excellent. Would definately use them again for another function! Thanks. -- Randee K, Chicago, IL, 12/10/2005
  • THANK YOU Mike Dangeroux and Gigmasters for making my event a huge success! The band was incredible their talent and energy was amazing and my guests are still raving about them!

  • They did a wonderful job! The wedding guests are still all talking about the great time they had at the reception, mainly due to the incredible band!

  • The band was awesome at our wedding reception. They were very flexible with our requests and able to work with us on every aspect to make everything easier that day. Everyone was asking how we found these guys. We also lost power for a few minutes and no one could even tell cause the drums and horns still kept playing until we got the problem fixed. Mike even called me up on stage during the last song so I could play guitar with the band. I will never forget that! Thanks guys, well done! josh -- Josh J, Chicago, IL, 9/15/2007
  • Mike and the performers were great. They were very aodating with everything. Our customers enjoyed the music and the interaction that they had with the band. Thanks! -- Susan H, Edgerton, WI, 4/14/2007
