Below are some comments and reviews by people who have had us provide music for their event or special day.

“Mike, where do I start….

We were so impressed with your band, we hardly have words to describe our night! From day 1 you were so responsive and professional that I thought you were too good to be true. You assembled our band so perfectly and precisely that we can’t stop talking about it. So many positive responses from our guests and from the venue staff. We loved every aspect of it from the warmup to the final note. My only regret is that we didn’t watch your entire act because we were being drawn away for various reasons. Thank you for all your hard work and assistance throughout the year. You made our special day so memorable and I’m forever thankful. Bravo!”

“Mike and his team were a pleasure to work with. They were extremely flexible and able to provide us with all our requirements. We were not sure if anyone would actually get up for any dances after the meal, but Mike and his crew were able to provide a mixture of music that attracted several couples to get up and dance. Please thank Mike and his Jazz Band for a great night of entertaining music that complimented the evenings event and resulted in an overall successful dinner.”

“capitalJAZZ was the perfect ensemble for our event. Not only did Mike provide provide a fast and professional response to a short notice request, but the ensemble he put together couldn’t have been more perfect. The band became the heart of our event and was what everyone was talking about the next day”


“CapitalJazz exceeded our expectations. From the initial contact up to the day of the event, they were a pleasure to deal with. They were open to suggestions and were willing to accommodate our requests. The music was great. A Jazz twist on traditional Christmas songs was enough to get the party going. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the event was a hit. I would highly recommend CapitalJazz to colleagues and friends as well as consider them for future events at our company.”

At the event, the band’s setup was seamless and unnoticed and their look and music fit in perfectly. We would recommend the Mike McNeil band! {now named “capitalJAZZ”}“.

“The trio Mike put together for our Spring Open House in May was a perfect fit.  Our theme was ‘Swing in to Spring’ and the group performed the perfect mix of jazz and swing to compliment our theme beautifully.  The residents and guests alike commented on how lovely and fitting the music was.  Mike’s group is definitely on our ‘call again’ list.”
