Robert-Oh My God we all can’t stop talking about Saturday night. Meet The Press is not just a band but you guys are the utmost professionals that build lifetime memories. Saturday night is what our family’s needed we have lost a lot of loved ones over the past year and Saturday night was really the first time we have gotten together since the funerals. All everyone could talk about was the band I think they forgot there  was a wedding also. It was fun for all ages from 3 years old to 85 years old or to sum it up anyone that had a pulse had fun. And it might be my nieces only chance at stardom they loved being on stage and you guys nailed “Aint No Stopping Us Now” and every other song on the playlist. You have my word that I will recommend MTP to anyone and everyone that is having an event and a band is needed cause I want to hear you all play as often as I can…Again thank MTP for making our night not only a lifetime memory for us but a memory for everyone that attended.

Please use us as a reference if you ever need to also. If there is a location on your website I will go out there and put our experience on your site.

Thank you and May God Forever Bless Yourself, Drew, John, Johnny and Xayvon better known as   “Meet The Press”.

Dear Robert,

I just wanted to personally thank you and all the members of Meet The Press for the wonderful music and entertainment at Amelia and Dustin's wedding Saturday night! We couldn't have enjoyed ourselves any more than we did! We have been receiving many phone calls since then and comments from family and friends about you guys. Several people have asked for your cards and I have passed on your website to them!!!

If you didn't realize it, Amelia and Dustin had planned to leave between 11-11:15 that night. As you know, they closed down the reception!!!! Thanks for such a memorable time at our only daughter's wedding reception! We will be checking your schedule at BNB bar at the Ameristar for future dates.

God bless you and your talented group!

Sincerely,

Zoe and Mike Crumpler


Hey Robert,

This is Katherine, you and your band played at my reception on Oct 3 in Andalusia AL. I just wanted to tell you what an awesome job y'all did. Your band is the greatest and absolutely MADE our reception!!! Thank you so much for traveling so far to come play for us. We have had so many people ask who the band was and how we found them! We could not have had a better band! Do y'all by chance record when y'all play at events, I would love a cd of y'alls.
Thanks again for 4 great hours of music that night!!!
Katherine


Meet the Press,

We are now back and settled in after our honeymoon and I had to take this opportunity to tell you what a wonderful time we had dancing the night away at our reception. THANK YOU for the passion and enthusiasm you and your band pour into your performances! I know I am biased when I say this but it was the funnest wedding I have ever been to! I wish we could go back in time and relive it all again but I guess that's what photos are for 🙂 We've already had several people ask who that band was at the reception… it was just icing on the cake when you initiated the "Love Train" at the end of the night and had everyone dancing around the room. I knew the night was a success when I looked back at photos and saw my grandmother right in the middle of the love train almost 3 hours into the reception! So, thanks again for giving us the memories to last a lifetime!

Words cannot express how appreciative we all are that you made the treacherous trip this past weekend! You guys ROCK! I was so impressed with everything – your music (first and foremost), your look, and your professionalism! The crowd just had a blast!! You really made the reception fun! In fact . . . I don't think I had anyone ask for a shuttle until at least 10:30 PM!! Kudos to you!

It's a "Shore" Thing, Inc.


Meet the Press

What a wonderful time my friends and I had in Vicksburg at RiverFest this past weekend! Meet the Press is a treasure of a band and we appreciate you so much! What a shame that whenever Mississippi appears in a newsclip, this past Saturday night is not shown – – folks of every age and color dancing together in the streets! Thanks again, Meet the Press – – you rock!

Meet The Press,

Thank you so much for everything that you did to make our wedding reception so wonderful. Everyone there had such a great time and enjoyed the great music played! You ALL were such a pleasure to work with. Thank you again for everything!

Sincerely,

Cryshelle & Jason Patterson


Hi Robert and the rest of you wonderful guys with MTP!

Shane and I feel so lucky to have had such a FUN and AMAZING band play at our wedding.  Even though we had to move our wedding from Florida to Louisiana in 6 days, (thanks to hurricane Ivan) your "no worries" attitude was exactly what we needed! Needless to say, I was a tad bit stressed the week before our wedding. You promised that everything would be okay and it was much more than that!  I never dreamed I could have so much fun at my own wedding! Even Shane danced the night away- and he never does that! Y'all are THE most fabulous band!  Not only do you put on a wonderful show, but you were an absolute pleasure to work with! AND you let all of my friends and me take over your stage like we owned it! Did you ever think you would go to a reception and get to see a bunch of old men having a "how low can you go" contest?!?  I am almost positive I have never laughed and smiled so much!  I hope y'all enjoyed playing for us as much as we enjoyed dacing for y'all!  We really hope to see you again- whether it be at another wedding or just hanging out in Natchitoches during the Christmas Festival.  Y'all are amazing and we thank you so much!  Please keep in touch and let us know if you'll be coming back anytime soon!
