Late night host - Seth Meyers & Alexi Ashe, Martha's Vineyard 2013
As a wedding planner myself with Marthas Vineyard Wedding and Events I've worked with so many wedding bands. When it came time to choose a band for our own wedding it was a no brainer for me & my family. Seeing and hearing Mike and the Keepers play so many times I knew I wanted to bring that same fun, dancy, never a cheesy moment style to our wedding celebration. Mike is a joy to work with, timely on his correspondence, always puts together an A+ group of super talented musicians, and really brings the party! Despite the insane August heat, our guests danced the night away to everything from your standard wedding classics to Dead covers. Mike is open to playing anything under the sun (and will make it sound amazing!) He truly curated a wedding day playlist to our non-traditional liking. Five stars for Mike Benjamin and the Keepers!

Once we decided to work with Mike and his band, the rest was easy. Throughout the planning process, Mike was professional and responsive, yet laid back and understanding. Hurricane Lee added some stress to our wedding week, but Mike was prepared to play no matter the weather. The band brought the best energy on the day of our wedding. From our ceremony to cocktail hour to reception, they sounded incredible. Mike knew we wanted to hear a wide variety of music without any of the cheesy hits. The band even welcomed one of our brothers on stage for a few songs. The dance floor was packed all night. Even months later, we’re still hearing about how energetic and talented the band was. Bravo to Mike Benjamin and the Keepers — absolutely stellar!
