I would highly recommend this band. They can do it all while performing a wide variety of songs and genres. They played for my wife’s 40th birthday party and they were amazing. No need to second guess on whether you should book this band or not, just do it and thank me later.

Can’t say enough good things about Mike and his band. He was informative and responsive from the first contact all the way through the night of the event. The band sounded incredible and had a wide range of songs to perform for all age groups. I wish the weather was more cooperative so there would have been a larger audience but those who were in attendance couldn’t say enough good things about their sound. Will definitely book them again for future events.

The Mike Dangeroux Orchestra recently played at our reception in Chicago and they killed it! They arrived well in advance of the start time and were complete professionals. They played incredible jazz and the compliments about the music that we received were numerous. If you are looking for music for your event in Chicago, look no further than the Mike Dangeroux Orchestra. Easily the best band I’ve worked with in 20 years of event planning.

Excellent performance, really engaged the crowd and got them involved with maracas, tambourines, cowbell, etc. Very personable to the crowd and to Park District staff. Extremely talented musicians who know how to make an event like this flow smoothly. Would love to invite back next year or whenever a performance opportunity opens up!

We had an absolutely amazing time. All my guests raved about MDO and are now trying to figure out what event they can plan next to hire them! The talent is out of this world, song selection was amazing, and they kept guests dancing the entire night. The band even helped surprise our guest of honor. I’d definitely recommend Mike and his team to those who want to “wow” their guests and give them a party to remember. We can’t wait to have them again in the future!!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on August 15, 2020From Omena, MI

I was having a hard time finding the right band for our wedding – went through recommendations and companies that help you find one. I then came upon this website, and found Mike D’s band. It was exactly what we were looking for! From our first call, Mike was so accommodating to come up to Northern Michigan from Chicago, and helped us figure out the right size band. We asked him to learn songs of different genres for when I walked down the aisle, when we exited the ceremony and first dances. All were AMAZING. Their energy kept people on the dance floor all night 🙂 Book Mike – Thank you!!!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on February 14, 2020From Oak Lawn, IL

I hired the Mike Dangeroux Orchestra to sing just one song at my wedding, immediately following the ceremony. Mike was very patient with me as I had a certain way I wanted it sung and he had three different singers make a video until I found one I liked. When they showed up I was literally blown away. They looked so professional and Peter’s singing was exactly what I had envisioned – he was perfect! An added bonus – they wore red (it was a Valentine’s Day wedding). I cannot say enough about this band, and Mike personally. If you have the chance to book them, do it!

Awards Night PartyReviewed on January 26, 2020From Merrillville, IN

All of our guests for the evening had nothing but positive things to say about the band. This was a dance event and they kept our guests on the floor dancing. Would definitely hire them again. Very professional!

The Mike Dangeroux band was by far the best private event band I’ve seen. We had them at my wife’s 40th birthday and they rocked the place! The musicians are so talented that nothing seems forced or artificial. They focused mainly on our 50s-70s and blues requests and everybody at the party was dancing! All of the musicians were smiling, pleasant, entertaining and professional. They obviously enjoy what they do. We are in Milwaukee and I had jitters about getting a Chicago band to make the trip, but it was so worth it. The venue owners told me they felt like they were in a Chicago blues club. It was a pleasure doing business with Mike. A lifetime of memories!

-Emil H. FROM SAINT FRANCIS, WI ON 1/12/2018

Mike Dangeroux Gigmasters’ Top Rock Band did an incredible job at our wedding. They kept the dance floor packed all night long and everyone wanted to know where we found them. Upon submitting my request to gigmasters.com, Mike immediately contacted me to introduce himself. He was prompt with all communication and was great to work with. They even adapted our first dance to play it live! I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to keep their party rocking all night long!

– Nicholas L. FROM LAKE GENEVA, WI ON 9/16/2017

This band is worth every penny! They rocked our world. On time. Ready to play. Completely professional on level of evaluation. Never have I felt such satisfaction in the hiring of musicians as I have with this band. They took reggae from traditional to jazz fusion and back again! The highlight of the evening besides the actual wedding itself was the hour and a half set Mike played for us. We were thoroughly enthralled and mesmerized during the entire performance Thank you Mike and gigmasters for coming thru in the clutch!

5 stars all around for Mike and the Band. They were awesome for us! We booked them to do 1 hour cocktail and 5 hour reception. They nailed it- our guests did not stop dancing and wanted more at the end. Easy to work with, on time, professional and fun. Learned the songs we requested- pretty sure they even took a few requests from guests towards the end of the evening. At one point one of our guests was on stage playing along, tambourine in hand. Sure sign of a good time. If you have an upcoming event- book Mike Dangerous. Serious bang for your buck!

Mike and the band were excellent! We have hired them before and will hire them again for our next event. They are very accommodating and sound amazing.

– Tina M. FROM BRISTOL, WI ON 10/15/2016

Mike and his band are the real deal. They are outstanding musicians, extremely professional, and able to adapt to any type of audience or venue. At our recent wedding party, they played chill R&B for the first half of the night and then cut it loose with some great dance tunes as the party got hopping. It was perfectly appropriate for the occasion and exactly what I asked them to do. Their rendition of Marvin Gaye’s “You’re All I Need to Get By” for our first dance was spectacular. I would hire The Mike Dangerous Band again in a minute. They were a very important part of making our party a huge success.

– Curt M. FROM WILLOWBROOK, IL ON 9/24/2016

Having Mike Dangeroux’s Band perform was one was the highlights of our wedding! They had everyone dancing and having a good time on the dance floor and they were extremely professional throughout their performance. I really appreciate that they were able to provide additional emcee services for the wedding and Mike replied with any questions or concerns I had in a very timely manner via email. My husband and I both agree that one of the most memorable moments of the wedding was when they were able to perform the Horah (chair/circle dance popular at Jewish weddings) live!

– Sherry W. FROM SOUTH HAVEN, MI ON 8/13/2016

This band is extremely talented. The singers were great, the bassist was crazy good and Mike brought his inner Hendrix for us to be amazed by. They played enthusiastically outside on a very muggy night. I would highly recommend them.

Stop looking because your answer has arrived! As an event planner you always want to ensure that your client is beyond happy. Well, Mike and his band delivered just that not to just my client but to her guests! To see guests singing out loud, dancing in their chairs while enjoying brunch and interacting with the band was more than what I could have expected out of any band. I would highly recommend them again and you will not be disappointed.

If I could go higher than a 5 on talent I would! The band was ammmmmmmmazing, great job feeling the crowd and getting everyone involved and really becoming the rhythm of the party. I hired Mike and the band for a raggae 30th bday party and these guys were outstanding; they mixed it up here and there with non raggae beats which truly impressed me because their talents much reach much further than what I had requested but these guys were awesome, showed up extra early to setup and make sure everything was perfect, which I have never experienced before (usually DJs show up max 30 mins early) and my only regret is I booked a 3 hour gig, should have done 5!

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.

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 accommodating 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!

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.

WOW! Mike and all were great! They really made our reception special… there wasn’t a song they couldn’t play and they in many cases sounded better that the orignal artists.

Mike was more gracious and accommodating than I could have hoped for. He responded quickly to my calls and e-mails, he took the time to help me decide what kind of music to offer, and which band members to use. All of my guests had an amazing time at my party, even though it was cold outside, because Mike kept them engaged. Many of them asked for his business card and plan to hire him in the future. I will definitely hire him again,myself. I am very grateful to him.

Some of the comments 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.

I planned my Chicago wedding from Los Angeles. I wasn’t able to go hear bands play or take the time to get demos All of the band’s demos are online and accessible, and I truly could not have picked a greater band for my wedding. ALL of our guests danced from the first dance until the very end of the night. My mom’s fiancee wants to fly them all out to Vegas to play at his wedding. They were very professional, the singers were amazingly talented, and the musicians were fantastic. I’m a performer by trade, so my expectations and standards are high, and I couldn’t have been more impressed. They are great people who know how to rock out and have a good time.

Mike and the band were phenomenal! We had the a fabulous time dancing at our reception, as did all of our guests. Mike was nothing but a reasonable, accommodating professional from the time we put a bid in to book the gig through the time he and the band packed up their instruments at the end of the night.

Mike got the party started! My friends and family were on the dancefloor from the minute they swallowed their last bite of cake until the reception ended (including some family who I did not think would even get on the dancefloor!). As many others have commented, Mike is extremely responsive by phone and email, and he had great suggestions for me when I was unsure of some decisions for the timeline of the evening. The whole band was very talented and maintained high energy throughout their performance. I would definitely recommend them!

Mike Dangeroux was great! Everyone enjoyed the band, we had guests grabbing the microphone and signing so they were very accomodating and we were so happy we picked them. His response to our emails and calls was very prompt and helpful in planning our event. I would definitely recommend them!

Mike Dangeroux performed for our first fund raising event. After they played for 30 minutes, I started receiving compliments from those in attendance that the band was great, and questions about where they were from and how I found them. We were so happy with the band, that after the show, we booked them to perform for us at our fund raising event next year.

I am from South Florida and hired Mike over the internet for my mother’s surprise birthday party in Chicago. I was concerned about hiring a band “sight unseen” so to speak but had no other options. Mike was always prompt in answering emails, called and confirmed a few days before the party. Needless to say, Mike Dangeroux and his band were GREAT! Everyone loved them and a number of people were asking me for their contact information. They seemed to gauge the energy of the party to find just the right songs to play to “get the party started.” The only setback is that it all seemed to end too soon. In the future, I will have to hire them for 6 instead of 3 hours.

There are two types of performers. Those who play music, and those who know how to play for a party and entertain. Mike is the second type, not only did he and his band know a variety of songs and play some great hits, they knew how to work with audience members and put on a great show. Will book him and his team again for future concerts, and would give a very strong recommendation for anyone looking for a star performer for their show.

I’m pretty sure Mike Dangeroux and his band made our wedding reception! For months after and even still now, we get told that our reception was the best and most fun our guests have ever attended. It is in no doubt in part because of the talent and entertainment delivered from the stage. Dora’s voice is amazing and Mike’s talent on the guitar is thrilling. The dance floor was packed all night and elder guests who normally would have left earlier were found hanging around the edge of tent watching the entertainment with smiles on their faces. There is just something about live music from a band like this; it grabs you and makes you FEEL the celebration.

Great communication from start to finish (above and beyond expectation). Mike played our marina party with his reggae band “the tropics” it was a sunrise party and they were good sports and showed up on time (7a.m.) and were very professional and fun. They really had the talent and look of a great reggae band. They really worked the crowd with fun sing along songs. They had a great mix of music and played all our requests. Highly recommend Mike and the tropics. I know they will be back to the Chain O’ lakes very soon to entertain us again! Thanks guys! We had a blast and all our guest had nothing but good things to say about you! John, Gary and Brian

Mike Dangeroux really made our wedding! People were dancing from the moment they started to play until the very end of the night; and this is coming from a big Irish family that usually doesn’t dance. They couldn’t have been better! They played everything we wanted. The best!

The band was great. they showed up on time ready to play and were very professional. Everyone enjoyed their sound and wanted them to play for longer, next time we will definately book them for a longer time. I was very pleased with the experience from booking to the day of the show. Great job!
