Knowing our top three important items for our wedding; the food, the bar and the band. It was important to us to make the right decision and truly the only decision -- Collision Six. Once we picked the venue it was rather smooth sailing. Our reception was in a restored theater with a beautiful stage. We knew we needed a band who could perform, but not need the spotlight on them all night. At the time of planning, my fiance requested a full 10 piece band including the horn section. The group sounded like they had been playing together their entire lives. Sarah's voice is like no other, a true unique gem! From our first conference call to the day of the wedding, Matt was professional, organized and did everything he could to make us feel like we were the most important clients. They truly personalized the entire wedding for us. We love country music and they did everything they could to play as much as possible. Throughout the night Matt did an excellent job communicating with us to ensure everything was going to plan and to make minor adjustments when needed. Talk about a seamless experience. The dance floor was packed all night, even when they took breaks. Four weeks after our wedding, are friends and family are still talking about how much fun they had and I thank Collision Six for helping to create the most special night. One of my favorite memories of the night is dancing on stage, with my husband and the band. If you want your guests to dance all night and you want to have a blast, trust me, choose Collision Six!
It’s been one month since my husband and I were married, and aside from the sparkly ring on my finger, there is one thing I can’t stop smiling about- Collision Six. I would consider myself somewhat of a music critic. It runs in my blood as the daughter of a radio DJ. I have been to over 200+ concerts in my lifetime, and enjoy ANY and ALL opportunities to listen to some quality, live music. I had the opportunity to see C6 at my best friend’s wedding in August 2015, and was truly blown away with the band. Days after the wedding I could not stop complimenting my friend on how much I LOVED the music, and how proud of her I was for booking such a talented band. Little did I know, just weeks later, I had my own proposal, and my own wedding to begin planning for. The absolute 1st thing that came to my mind was not when or where I wanted to get married, but that we HAD to have Collision Six as our wedding band. My other half was a bit apprehensive, as he likes to consider all options before he makes any decision in life. Well, this was a decision I was adamant on making, and BOY are we glad that we did! After reaching out to Matt and meeting face to face with Matt & Sarah for the first time, a big weight was taken off our shoulders. We were a truly naive bride and groom, and without the help of Matt & Sarah, I don’t know that we would’ve considered exactly how many elements of a wedding reception there are, OR that you could have a wedding without hearing the same old “Celebrate Good Times” songs that are routinely played. They sat with us, so patiently, and listened to all of our questions, concerns, requests, etc. We even had a specific request for a certain Jewish-tradition to take place at the reception when the last child in a family is married off. Without a question Matt & Sarah knew exactly what this tradition was, and had no problems including this in the evening’s timeline. Not only did Collision Six learn specific songs for our first dance (that included BEATBOXING- OMG!), and our parent dances, but they really took into consideration our favorite style of music and began to play more alternative rock (mixed w/ awesome 90's music) later on in the evening, even so much as to bring out an old Foo-Fighters song that they hadn’t played in some time. To this day (a month later exactly as I am writing this), I still receive texts and calls w/ compliments about how fantastic C6 was. There are not enough synonyms in a thesaurus to describe the utmost passion, professionalism, and pure talent this band has. There was a moment just before I walked down the aisle, by myself, no bridal party around, where I had that “OMG, I’m getting married” panic moment, and I am what you would consider a very laid-back gal. However, all of the sudden, I started to hear the music to one of my favorite songs, by one of my favorite bands, played in the most beautiful arrangement. I took the biggest breath, told the lady to open the doors, and I could not stop smiling! Obviously, this was due to the fact that my husband was waiting at the end, but more importantly due to the fact that I don’t know of many bands out there who would take their time to arrange a Blink 182 song and make it sound “pretty” so that I could be the most relaxed bride walking down the aisle. This is just a small example of what true, talented musicians can do. I will never forget (and continue to brag about) Collision Six for the rest of my life! THANK YOU x 182!
My husband and I booked C6 for our wedding in August and it was the BEST decision we could have made. We knew right away that we wanted a live band at our reception and that we'd make it a priority to find the best of the best! First of all, this band is the most incredible group I've ever heard live (take a look at their YouTube page and you'll see what I mean)!! Matt was awesome throughout the entire planning process and took the lead on so many things that we needed help with. We met Matt & Sarah via FaceTime and he took us step by step through each part of our wedding reception leaving us feeling even more excited and very relieved. Matt and C6 worked directly with our reception venue coordinator and made the day-of process worry free. Matt even took the time to make custom edits to our family dance songs that we could not do ourselves. Now on to the wedding day. This was already THE best day of our lives, however at the reception the party got started right away and literally never stopped. Our reception was supposed to end at 11 but our dance floor was still so packed from all of the high energy, great music that C6 was playing/singing that we decided to extend our reception and we are SO glad we did. This group is filled with unmatched talent and they have great personalities on top of it! They put on an incredible performance but never took away from the fact that it was our big day. I can't tell you how many compliments I've received about C6 even weeks after our wedding day. "That band was UNREAL", " Best band I've ever, ever heard!" and "I will 100% hire them for my wedding!!" just to name a few. We wish we could relive our wedding day over and over again for so many reasons but to experience C6 in their element again would be at the top of our list. We cannot thank each and every member of C6 enough for making our day the best day ever. Each member's unique talent created unbelievable music. We give our highest recommendation to Collision Six!!
Matt and his crew were fantastic. Energetic, fun and our guests are still talking about them! They learned special songs for us, and were super professional and affordable too!
I loved working with them and our wedding was such a blast for us and all our guests! It felt like a personalize concert!!
An organization I used to work for booked Collision Six to play at their annual gala a few years back, and even as an employee, I danced all night - the band was so amazing! When my husband and I began planning our wedding, we knew we wanted Collision Six. I booked them as soon as we picked a date, more than a year in advance, but honestly, we would have changed our wedding date to work with their schedule :) Hiring Collision Six for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. Matt was a total professional from the very beginning - he’s quick to respond to emails and calls, answered all of our questions in great detail, and was just easy to communicate with overall. The band’s website is also really helpful - full of song lists, videos, and helpful wedding resources. Every time we talked with Matt and Sarah they were very friendly, super organized, and clearly on top of everything. Matt followed up every phone call with a detailed email to summarize what we talked about and lay out next steps. As our date got closer, Matt was in communication directly with our wedding planner, our venue, and even those giving speeches to make sure everything was all set for our big day. He brings and takes care of all the A/V, sound, and light equipment too (so we didn’t have to pay extra to our venue for these services). I am admittedly a micromanager, but I totally trusted Matt and never once felt I needed to micromanage him. Collsion Six’s Jazz Trio played our cocktail hour and created such a great vibe. From the Grand Entrance to the last song, Collision Six rocked it. They learned music for us, and even welcomed a few of our family members on stage to play during our Klezmer/Jewish dance set. My husband and I prepared a “first dance” and I was a little nervous about doing it with the band when we had never practiced with them. But it was perfectly timed, just like the recording we sent them (except 100x better). The set list we chose was mostly Motown and funk with some pop, and our dance floor was packed all night. My husband and I stayed on the dance floor, right up next to the stage, and pretty much didn’t leave that spot. At one point my husband and my little brother got on stage and took over the keyboard and drums for “Superstitious” - definitely a highlight. They played Rent’s “Seasons of Love” as the last song and had our family and friends surround us in a love circle, such a tear jerker moment for us and just an amazing way to close the best night ever. Collision Six really made our party. Don’t hesitate to book them. For real, do it now. It will be one of the best decisions you make for your wedding :)
Collision Six made our wedding awesome! They were prompt with responses, were easy to work with, and took our song choices very seriously. We watched them at another venue, and that didn't do them justice because they had catered to that wedding so much (that wedding the bride/groom liked rock, I like pop), but they give you a detailed questionnaire so you can make all of your preferences know. Wow on the day of the wedding did they deliver! They kept people out on the dance floor until the bar shut down. Highly recommend!
You would be absolutely crazy to not book Collision Six. Not only were they incredible at the wedding (our guests are still talking about it), but even leading up to the wedding they made us feel at ease and so confident in our decision to use them. We had some requests for different songs and TOUGH father/daughter and mother/son dances and they KILLED IT. They made our wedding, hands down. We cannot recommend them enough and wish we could do it all over again!
These folks are true professionals. Shopping for a wedding band is tough and C6 is definitely not the cheapest option when it comes to choosing a band, but just like anything else...You get what you pay for! We found C6's website to be laid out in a very professional way and the sample recordings of their songs (in a studio instead of iPhone footage from a guest at a party) were very impressive. When we decided to pull the trigger we couldn't believe the thorough communication and service that we received. We were able to hand pick the songs they played, choose DJ set songs and choose the order that things were going to go during the night. Truly made it feel special and catered to our needs without any hesitation. They really made our party such an incredible success and people are still talking about how it was one of the best they have ever been to. Highly recommend!
We had been deciding between several bands, but are extremely happy that we went with Collision Six. The band is obviously extremely talented and helped us throw a crazy great party, but they are also great to work with. They helped us put together a timeline for the night and worked with us every step of the way leading up to the wedding. We cannot think of anything we wish they would have done differently. We got tons of compliments on the band from our guests from around the country. A well earned 5 star rating!
Look no further. Collision Six was hands down the BEST DECISION WE MADE for our wedding vendors. Aside from marrying the love of my life, the best part of my wedding day was dancing with all of my friends and family while Collision Six gave a SHOW. We got married at St John's and held our reception in the Grand Ballroom. Our wedding was large (~220 guests) with a wide variety of ages. The dance floor was packed from start to finish, the entire crowd (again, very diverse crowd) was just loving them. Seriously, people would not leave the dance floor. The lead singer, Sarah, has PIPES! The whole band was just absolutely fantastic, especially the saxophone! The other HUGE perk of hiring Collision Six was having band leader, Matt, help MC the entire night. We had multiple meetings before the wedding where Matt helped us work out the schedule and details for the reception. Seriously, no need to hire a Day-Of Coordinator, Matt is your guy! We did not worry for ONE MINUTE. All logistics were handled months/weeks in advance and we had complete faith in Matt & the band to run our reception. Truly, the entire night was magical. We started off at 5pm cocktail hour with the Collision Six jazz trio. Our reception was scheduled for 6-11pm, but our guests WOULD NOT LEAVE because the party did not slow down! We ended up extending the band and the bar to keep the party going later. The next morning at brunch, Collision Six was all our guests could talk about. Truly the most best day of our life, and we wish we could live it again and again. We are hoping one of our siblings gets married soon so we can encourage them to hire Collision Six. From our first email to the final song at our reception, Collision Six was 5 stars. Could not recommend more highly.
BEST. BAND. EVER. Collision Six played at my wedding earlier this month and they were beyond amazing! Matt and Sarah are the kindest and most caring people to make your wedding reception one to remember! They can play pretty much anything and will learn anything if you have a special request. They played our specific Daddy/Daughter & Mother/Son dances live which made it so special (our first dance was a waltz so that had to be a recording!) They met with us in person over coffee to go over every detail and make sure everything was perfect! They took care of the progression of the entire night and everything flowed so smoothly. I would give them a million stars if I could! They truly made my husband and I feel like we were their top priority. Two thumbs up!
Words cannot express how much we LOVED having Collision six for our wedding band! They were the life of the party! They had the dance floor packed all night, even the people who were not dancing were just watching them perform because they put on such a great show. So many of our friends and family have reached out to us telling us how amazing the band was. Matt and Sarah took the time to meet with us, get to know us on a personal level, and help us plan exactly what we wanted. We were able to pick the songs we liked too which was such a perk! They were so thorough, they went over everything in detail about the grand entrance, first dance, parent dances, hora, etc. Needless to say everything went perfectly smooth on the day of! This band is not only amazing at making great music, but they are also extremely professional and thorough. They made our day so personalized and special. They were BY FAR the best decision we made throughout the entire wedding process! We cannot thank you enough Collision Six!
Something about live music - its authentic, personal, and unique. Collision 6 is every bit "live". They are outstanding Musicians and exceptional performers. They can read a crowd and deliver exactly what the moment needs. These amazing talents performed recently at my son and daughter-in-laws wedding. I had recommended them - never once concerned that they would not deliver! Having had the pleasure of working with them on a corporate event, I knew they were perfect for this very special occasion. The bride and groom met with many other DJs and bands, and eventually choose them. They were not disappointed! Their remake of the original music the couple chose for their special moments; cocktail hour, entrance, father/daughter dance, first couple dance, etc were exciting to say the least. The music complimented every detail - never overpowered or distracted from what was happening. A beautiful evening and wonderful celebration for all of our guests? Easy to say the band feels like family now! Forever grateful!!
My fiancé and I recently went to see Collision Six to consider them for our wedding and couldn't have been more impressed. We aren't sure if we can do a live band in our budget yet but, if we can, this is the only group we will pursue. If you're going to do a band you really do need to do it right and, after seeing them live, it became clear to us that it was this or nothing. Despite us still trying to figure out how we can do this, if you know that you can, we truly recommend going to see them. Their energy was awesome, they somehow did live mashups of songs (still trying to wrap our minds around this) & beyond all else, are genuine people you'd want to work with. Matt & Sarah were so friendly, spending an entire set break with me & my fiancé and were SO easy to talk to, which is exactly the kind of dynamic you'd would want with someone that you're going to be working with. I personally was further blown away when I saw my fiancé talking to someone and thought that he ran into a friend only to find out that their lead singer came by to introduce himself and to thank us for coming. In our book this kind of stuff goes a long way and is the kind of energy we want to be a part of this experience. Like I said, we haven't booked (hopefully) yet.. But even after seeing them live while seeing if we can make it happen, we felt it was worthy enough of an impression to write a review. Side note! We didn't decide to check them out because of any youtube videos. All the reviews and every communication we had had with the band was enough for us to realize that this was the direction that we wanted to head in. If you aren't sold on youtube videos (to be honest, I don't even think we've watched any now that I think about it, haha) do yourself a favor and check them out at a bar gig they have or something. We went into this process thinking it was something we couldn't swing. Now, we're trying to figure out what we can cut out so that we CAN swing it. If you already can, you're golden. But if you aren't sure, we really recommend checking C6 out before making other big decisions, because this will probably impact where you prioritize. Unfortunately, our "big ticket" items have already been booked out prior to seeing the band. And to be honest, I think we would've done things differently had we seen them beforehand. SO! THAT SAID! Out of this super long post from someone who hasn't even booked the band!... 1) if you're even considering having a band, check them out sooner than later because that's probably our biggest regret in our wedding planning thus far (even if you don't book you'll still have an awesome night out like we did) and if you do a band, do it right 2) when there, make sure you take the time to introduce yourself. Something we've loved throughout our wedding planning has been connecting with so many great people and C6 fits that mold & 3) Pull the trigger and book them. Even though we are still figuring out if we can, I recommend that you do. Because if we could, we would! And if we can, we will! P.S. You probably won't come across other reviews for other bands recommending you book that band when the review hasn't. If nothing else, consider the weight of that concept & realize that you're already in the write place if reading a review on this page. I suggest scrolling back up & clicking the "Request Quote" button to get your party started. Cheers, and congrats on your engagement (or other celebration) to whomever may be reading! :)
Collision six was THE BOMB. We chose them for our wedding day and we could not recommend them any higher. From initial email correspondence to traveling around metro Detroit to watch them play to meeting Matt and Sarah in person to go over every detail of our big party - C6 was world class all the way. To sum up the band's performance I think my grandpa said it best "the only people in the state who were having more fun than the wedding guests was the band!" The tone was set with a high energy wedding party introduction and the music and dancing did not stop until the party was over. The dance floor was overflowing with people the entire night. We will never forget collision six's two pieces of wedding day advice: 1. Make sure you stay with your bride / groom as much as possible and 2. The vibe and energy of the night will be determined by how much the bride and groom dance We followed 1 and 2 to a T and had the best day of our lives. Thank you Collision Six for making our wedding day exactly what we wanted: an epic party filled with great music, laughs and dancing the night away.
A fantastic experience from beginning to end. We personally went and saw them play at Motor City Casino and we were immediately impressed with their energy, range of song choices, and their ability to get a crowd of people, who did not know eachother, dancing right away. They came and met us during one of their breaks and quickly won us over with their friendliness and genuine care for the product they are putting out there. Without looking much further we ended up hiring them with no doubts in our mind that they would be great for the party we wanted to have. We met with them about 90 days before our wedding to go over songs we wanted to hear and other details about our day. Their attention to detail is far beyond an A+, as well as their communication leading up to our big day. Matt and Sarah know how important a band is to the wedding and they execute on all fronts from customer service to performance. They kept the party going from beginning to end and delivered on all of the promises they had made to us during our planning process. Even at our wedding, multiple people who know music came up to us and said "Where did you find them? They are great!". I would highly recommend them to anyone for any type of event that requires a band. They were simply a true pleasure and we can't wait to see them at other events. -Allison and Brad
Can't say enough good things about Collision Six! They did an amazing job at our wedding and had the crowd dancing the whole night. Matt is great to work with and very fast at communicating. Would highly recommend!
By far - Matt and the team at Collision Six was the best vendor we had during our entire wedding planning process. We booked C6 from out of state - and had never heard them play - so we based our decision on Matt's professionalism and their YouTube videos - and we are so glad we did. Matt and Sarah really understood that we weren't the experts, but instead of imposing a generic "way" on us, they led us and guided us to get to the party we truly dreamed of. Matt had a questionnaire that we filled out to make sure our day was customized, and he spent countless hours, emails, and phone calls with us to understand and guide us in our vision. It was truly what we needed. He never said no, and was so collaborative - offering suggestions to our (sometimes eccentric) ideas to make it both customized and executable. The party truly refelected us as a couple because of Matt's tireless work. He was amazing. The day of - the band sounded FANTASTIC. They are amazing musicians and amazing vocalists. We got a ton of compliments. The band learned our first dance song and our parent songs to play them live. And Matt and the band kept the party rocking all night long. Even during the inevitable "lulls" - the band took the initiative to get the dance floor packed again. It was amazing and we felt so lucky to not have to worry about the band all night. We highly recommend this group!
If you are looking for an awesome band that knows exactly what they are doing, look no further! We struggled to find a fun band that was well organized, professional and responsive. After seeing Collsion Six and meeting with Matt and Sarah we knew we found the best of both worlds! They learned our first dance song since it wasn't on their active play list! They set aside time to meet us and call us before the wedding! They even coordinated our ceremony and cocktail hour music. Matt does such a nice job with the introductions. If you're looking for something special, ask about adding on a full horn section. Most importantly, the reception was an absolute blast!! Everyone, complimented the band!!
Collision Six was easily the best decision we made (besides actually getting married) on our wedding day. From the moment you email them you get incredible responsiveness from the band and it really puts you at ease with the process. We booked them from out of state and never saw them except for YouTube videos but Matt made sure we did a Skype call so we could meet and go over everything. Collision Six really served as our "Quarterback" on the day of the wedding. Our wedding flowed perfectly thanks to their lead. I really could go on and on about how amazing they were but people at our wedding kept coming up to us with comments like: "THIS IS THE BEST BAND EVER!" "I don't know what you paid for them, but they are worth every SINGLE penny!" "How do they just flow from one song to the next without stopping??? I've never seen that!" Even our musician friends were blown away by the quality of the music. If you want to have a vendor that you know will deliver the goods and not stress you out while also keeping your dance floor rocking, then go with Collision Six. If you do select them, you will have a meeting with them before your wedding where they give you some very good advice about your wedding day (I won't spoil it) but my wife and I took note of what they said and definitely applied to our wedding day and it made the day so much more amazing. So definitely listen and take note.
Spot on perfection! Collision six made our wedding day complete . They were the highlight of the reception and put on a killer show . They were the most memorable part of the wedding for our guests . I run into folks who were not at the wedding and they mention hearing about the great band we had ! That says it all ! Very professional , organized and above all a GREAT band !
I cannot say enough about how great Collision Six is! We were planning a wedding from across the country and they were so easy to deal with. The band was one of the first things we booked and we are so happy we chose Collision Six! Choosing the right band was so important to us because it can 100% make or break the party. They are so friendly and professional and totally understood what we wanted for our wedding. Collision Six was the perfect band for us! They are young, energetic and so entertaining. We got so many compliments from our wedding guests about how awesome and fun our band was. We even had an aunt ask us why our band never took a break, but they actually took 2 breaks.. Matt just does such a great job DJing during the breaks that there was never a lull in the party, our dance floor was packed from beginning to end!! The drummer even got out on the dance floor and sang from atop one of our tables at the end of the night. I would choose this band all over again and definitely recommend them!
Collision Six was absolutely amazing. They were awesome to work with in the planning process and almost always two steps ahead of us. They not only helped guide us in the music department but many other aspects of the big day. They took so much stress away from the planning process! The wedding day came and they did an unbelievably amazing job. They were flexible when we were running late and kept the party going all night long. I've had 100s of people ask for their information because they were THAT GOOD. They were more than we could have ever imagined and cannot thank them enough!
Collision Six is the most amazing band ever!! The planning meetings were so well organized, they listened to exactly what we wanted, and the actual wedding night was perfect! The dance floor was packed all night and we were asked over and over who they were and told how great they were!! If you're planning a wedding, you need to have them as your band!!!
