The raw energy and vocal power rivals anything I have seen on the road in my 30 years in the biz.” –

Just wanted to reach out and thank you guys for helping get Simply Irresistible up on stage and making everything go so smoothly on all fronts. They killed it in both cities and our client was over the moon. Big thanks to y'all for making us look so good. Have a great rest of spring and hope to work again soon. Thanks again!
Simply Irresistible put on a performance of a lifetime. All of the guests could not stop talking about how great they were. Simply an amazing show that was the hit of the night. We've had people asking how they can book them for upcoming events. This is the second event they have done for the Smith family and they will do our future events as well!! What a show!!!
I wanted to send a sincere note of thanks to you to pass along to everyone in the Simply Irresistible band. I cannot begin to describe how much we loved them. They arrived early, were total professionals at every turn, friendly and engaging, and provided a show for our guests that we will be talking about for weeks to come. I hope they now how immensely talented they are, and how much JOY they bring to those who see them.We would absolutely love to have them back with us next year, if you are already booking for 2020! Again, we consider them friends now. They were simply awesome, kind, fun, friendly and wonderful all the way around. THANK YOU THANK YOU!!
OMG -- they are so amazing. All around the BEST -- from their professionalism to their "easygoing-ness" (parking downtown Austin is a mess) to overall performance, choreography, etc. LOVE all of them -- the bus driver, LD, lead singer. So great. I honestly don't know how I'll ever work with any other band again. Thanks so much for helping us get them booked!!! It truly made our party. The client is THRILLED.
Simply Irresistible was beyond amazing. My guests from all over the world, told me that this was THE BEST wedding they had ever gone to. The band MADE the night! I could not be more thrilled with how it went. I will recommend them and your company highly!!!!! Making the world healthier and happier!!!
The band (Simply Irresistible) did an amazing job!!! I feel you guys have gotten even more impressive since March. The choreography was great and you could feel how connected the band was. They were so in sync, such great energy. The guests were obsessed. I kept watching people dancing and then stopping to just stare at the band. It was phenomenal. Jamal killed it as the emcee. I wish I could have you guys as my band every weekend. The whole band is just so respectful and professional, always shaking hands and introducing themselves to everyone during set-up. You guys are the real deal!
One word - amazing! They (Simply Irresistible) were great to work with and we hope to have them again.
Ronnie, I just had to sit down and take a minute to send you a warm and heartfelt thank you!!! Simply Irresistible’s performance April 29 for Circle Of Life was just incredible. The medleys, the musicianship, the vocalists and harmonies, the dancers, the intensity…Wow you guys just rocked!! The client is thrilled and we ALL look forward to next year!!
I cannot begin to explain how incredible I (and everyone) thought Simply Irresistible was this past Saturday. I think everyone would have stayed out dancing hours more if they could! Everything was literally perfect. The entire band and singers were amazing and nothing but professional in how they conducted themselves. We do lots of events all over the world and Simply Irresistible will certainly be on our radar for all our large events. I have already passed your information and rave reviews to our various events people around the world. I could not have imagined a better band for this wedding or any event. You all have something very special going on. I keep watching all the videos I took! Please pass my thanks along to everyone. I didn’t get the chance to thank Ronnie and everyone in person. Thanks again so so so much!
Simply Irresistible is so incredible. I seriously could not imagine a better band. The band was very friendly, and we could tell that they really love to entertain. They played to the crowd and definitely got everyone up and moving. Thank you so much for the best night of our lives!
Concerts in the Round was a huge success this year…Simply Irresistible clearly stood above the rest as the fan favorite. It was like watching a national act that you would see at a big arena play party music for three hours non stop. Unreal! I didn’t want to leave for fear of missing a song. Clearly SI is one of the best bands in the country.
All I can say is WOW!! Simply Irresistible played at my daughter’s wedding in April and I have been to five weddings since then and everyone is still talking about how our band was the best they have EVER heard! The dance floor was packed from the first note until the last when we were “literally” shut down at 2 am. Nobody wanted to leave!! The dance floor was so crowded, the videographer said it was the very tightest dance floor she had ever tried to video. The band’s high energy matched my daughter’s personality exactly and made the wedding PERFECT! I wish we had another wedding to plan so we could hire this band again….we are thinking maybe for an anniversary party! Thank you, thank you for the fabulous job you guys did and for being so great with the guests! You are simply AMAZING, simply IRRESISTIBLE, and simply THE BEST!!
Simply Irresistible and Party on the Moon performed together at our event in October. The girls were amazing and the entire group wowed the guests. I think we could have left off the food and drinks and our guests would have still been intoxicated off these two (2) outstanding bands alone!
The band was fabulous. And so personable!!! They sang a special song that we had asked them to sing for the honoree’s birthday- and it was just perfect and not part of their usual repertoire. Thanks so much for arranging to have Simply Irresistible play for this party. They are awesome!!!!!!
Simply Irresistible was out of this world at the Heart Ball Saturday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Trump and Andre Leon Tally loved them. Ronnie and his team truly made the evening very special. I will happily recommend them to any of my colleagues around the country.
I can’t even begin to put it into words how amazing Simply Irresistible was last weekend. People cannot stop talking about it. Everyone wanted to know who they were so expect to get a lot of phone calls in the upcoming years when people start getting engaged! They literally made the night so special. They were also so sweet to me and super personal.
Your recommendation for Simply Irresistible was the best. They rocked the house down for 4 straight hours and we all had a ball. We have good friends that found a spot on the dance floor after the bride/groom dance and they swear they never left it! Thank you for keeping our booties waggin’ and our dance shoes movin’!!!!!!
Simply Irresistible played at our wedding in Nashville, and we absolutely LOVED them! I want to thank the band for working with me in the months leading up to the wedding and being so helpful. I can’t tell you how many people said how much they loved the band. They were SO energetic, SO fun, and they did a fabulous job of keeping the party going and getting everyone dancing and having a really fun time!
I wanted to be certain that your company and team is aware of the true gem that you have with this band. Please continue to recommend them to our brides, and we look forward working with them again in the future.” (Simply Irresistible)
A rare combination of awesome talent, nice people, beautiful costuming and perfect song selection. (Simply Irresistible)
In all my years at Cree, our team cannot remember ever having so much fun. With the three beautiful, need-to-be-recording SUPERSTAR ladies plus those rockin’ guys, the band (Simply Irresistible) was as good as any national act I have seen. THEY ARE JUST AWESOME! Enjoyed Much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
While our expectations were high, this talented group (Simply Irresistible) exceeded them. They were the consummate professionals both on and off the stage and will be the point of remembrance for this occasion. If a Bride and Groom want to make an unforgettable wedding memory, this is the group to have.
