Since the age of 10, over the past 25 years, I have followed Mango Punch! all over Houston and, once, to San Antonio when they opened for the Barrio Boyzz. Having been able to book Walter Suhr and Mango Punch! for an event was a dream come true. Their energy is amazing and the ability to play to the audience is perfect for any event. It is obvious that Walter loves what he does. He doesn't just play music for the audience, but involves the audience in the performance. The band's original music is fantastic, as well as the range of genres/songs they cover. Walter Suhr and Mango Punch! is the perfect band for any occasion!
My wife and I had Mango Punch perform at our wedding this summer. Coming from a hispanic background and marrying into an irish catholic family, we needed the best of both worlds for spanish and english music. Mango Punch was the only band who fit the bill and far exceeded our expectations. All of our guests specifically mentioned how impressed they were with the balance and seamlessness of transitioning between spanish and english music. Everyone raved about how awesome the band was and how they livened the party! Walter was so engaging and made sure everyone was having fun. They even got family members that we had never seen dance out on the dance floor. They where even so accommodating as to let my dad sing a couple songs with the band. (Sort of a family tradition of ours.) I would recommend Mango Punch to anyone who is looking for a fun, lively, and entertaining band who plays awesome music. Especially if you're needed someone bilingual! Thank you Walter and the band for making our night so special, fun and an overwhelming success! Wish we could relive it all over again!
We had Mango Punch performing at our wedding recently, and I couldn't be happier with their fantastic performance. Walter is such a nice and friendly guy, he truly wants to make it perfect and involve every guest. All of our guests said how great was the band. We had a very mixed crowd of different ages and cultures, but they all loved Mango Punch!
Walter Suhr and his band Mango Punch did an amazing show for my husbands 50th birthday at House of Blues! Walter was very involved with the planning and set up and worked with the venue on lighting, sound and set-up so that everything was perfect that night! We had guests ranging from 9 years to 80 years and everyone danced and enjoyed it! Walter gets out onto the dance floor with the guests and really gets the party going. Even folks who don't dance ended up dancing and singing all night. Walter even helped us perform and plan a Flash Mob dance to Uptown Funk for a special birthday surprise. Walter and his manager Susana were easy to work with - always available and it was perfect. I would highly recommend them for any celebration!

Walter and crew from Mango Punch are absolutely incredible! They played for us until about 4AM - such a great party going during the reception. Great quality of music, great voices, great music selection - would recommend them with my eyes closed. Additionally, super friendly people to work with - THANK you WALTER!!

Review for Mango PunchReviewed on 5/10/2010 Lorena B
Mango Punch is #1 in creating a fun, party atmosphere. For the third year in a row Mango Punch! has won the Houston Press Music Award for Best Salsa/Latin Pop band in Houston. The lead singer Walter Suhr is very good at reading the crowd to know what to play next and they played a perfect balance of a variety of genres of music. He even had us over to his house in order to discuss what kind of music we wanted before our wedding! Susana Trimmer, the manager, was very easy to work with to book and work with the band.
