We had heard a lot of horror stories from bands who played the "wrong" music for the crowd so at first we insisted on picking out our play list. We received reassurance from NMS that they are great at playing to the crowd and work better with more flexibility....they were right. Not once during the wedding did we question the song selections!
We strongly believe that NMS is the best value that you will get for your money. Not only do they learn songs just for your wedding but they also DJ during band breaks....honestly, we could never tell when there was a break because the dance floor was packed all night.
We have received countless messages and notes from our friends and family asking who the band was, telling us how great they were and overall that our wedding was one of the best they have been to. We have NMS to thank in large part for that!
We strongly recommend NMS....they exceeded all our expectations of a band for our wedding.
My internet search for wedding bands was quickly narrowed when I found Nine Mile Smile's website and watched their YouTube videos. Their schedule had them playing at a local bar, so we stopped by and listened... They are talented performers and we knew right away that we wanted to hire them.
Nine Mile Smile has an impressive song list that spans many genres and they offer to learn requested songs. We actually had a difficult time coming up with new songs for them to learn because they already knew so many. In the end, they learned an '80s song for our first dance and a song by Clutch (rock/metal)!
We had never seen so many people on the dance floor at a wedding! All of our guests had so many great things to say about the band. They emcee better than most DJs and had great party music between sets (and during our cocktail hour).
Kurtis was very responsive and polite toward us and our wedding coordinator during the planning process. The band members were all relaxed and very easy to get along with - plus, Jordan graciously handled the attention she received from my husband's drunk cousin before we had a chance to pull him away. :)
The ambiance that Nine Mile Smile helped create at our reception is something that my husband and I are truly grateful for. They exceeded our expectations and made our wedding extremely memorable - guests are still talking about it nearly a year later!

Nine Mile Smile is AMAZING! I cannot say enough good things about them. My first experience with Nine Mile Smile was at my sister's wedding in June 2011. They were a hit. When I got engaged, Nine Mile Smile was one of the first vendors I contacted as I knew I just had to have them play at my reception too. They were extremely professional and always responded to my questions in a very timely manner. And, they sound simply wonderful.

"I worked with Kurtis from Nine Mile Smile and he was incredible flexible and fun to work with. My fiance and I really wanted to add some horns and he was able to set that up. Our wedding guests are still talking about how amazing the band was. Live music is such a great break from the norm and there are some extremely talented individuals in the band!"

Not only were they reliable and professional, they were a heck of a good time. We wanted a band at our wedding because it always provides for a great atmosphere- if the band is good.

Nine Mile Smile played at our wedding in Traverse city in July, 2011. Kurtis was our contact throughout the planning period. He was professional yet personable made the process very easy!

"We had Nine Mile Smile at our wedding reception on 6/4/11 in East Lansing, MI. From the moment I first contacted NMS for information, to the last song they played at our reception, they were FIRST CLASS."

"NMS was a more than a great addition to our May 29, 2011 wedding. This band is a class act. Knowing Kurtis as a friend is a blessing, but hearing the band play at our wedding - priceless! The band gets you moving and off your feet, and really enjoying the music. They knew how to read the audience and entertain everyone of all ages. For those of you planning a wedding or other event, don't miss this opportunity of really entertaining your guests and creating some great memories."

If you're getting married and are in search of the perfect band, Nine Mile Smile is for you. Call them!!!!
