We hired Miles to play acoustic for our Friday night Welcome Party before our wedding. Hiring him and setting up the details was such an easy process. He sent us a song list to choose from which was just what we were looking for! During our welcome party he was set up to play...

Our guests loved him and he was such a fun addition to our party! I would definitely recommend him to anyone who asked, he was great to work with!!

The Miles Band rocked our Vermont barn wedding! We were very happy with the communication from Miles and together we were able to tailor a set list and schedule to fit our celebration. They had our guests on the dance floor from the first song to the last! We had some special...

They were extremely accommodating and flexible and this personalized approach really made a difference! We had guests ranging in age from 1 to 94, and the band was able to find a little something for everyone to get down to. Highly recommended!

The Miles Band was everything we wanted for our wedding day! Miles was extremely responsive throughout the planning for our wedding and worked with our venue as well so that everyone was on the same page come the big day. Miles himself played for our ceremony on acoustic guitar... Read More and then we had the four piece band play for the rest of the day. He was extremely professional in all of our communications with him and worked with other vendors throughout the day to make sure everything ran smoothly. The staff at our venue said that they have never had a wedding there with as many people on the dance floor for as much of the night as they did when we had Miles playing! He and the band are fantastic musicians with a great set list that kept everyone dancing all night! People could not stop raving throughout the entire night and even after our wedding about how fantastic the band was. They were the absolute highlight of the evening and we cannot say enough about them. If you do not book this band you are missing out in a BIG way!

My husband often says that Peter Miles was one of the best and easiest pieces of our wedding. I don't quite know how to put into words how at ease he made us feel about learning the songs for our processional and recessional songs during our ceremony, as well as accommodating... Read More all our requests for the cocktail hour. This is on top of an already amazing song list he presented us with. Without fail, every guest we talked to was blown away by Peter Miles. We have already had guests from our wedding book him for future events. He is flexible, warm, easy going and beyond talented. We highly highly highly recommend Peter Miles.

Peter Miles & The Miles Band were beyond amazing. From our initial conversation, to all of my emails, to their performance at our wedding, they blew us away. Peter is such an awesome guy and is so easy to talk to. The guys in the band are also all great guys, you can really tell... Read More that they love what they do. I have had almost all of our guests tell me they were super impressed with the band and some even want to book them for their own events! They learned our first dance song for us, which is a bit different (Stick Figure - All My Love) and they killed it!! I really can't say enough good things about these guys. If you are looking for a band to get your people up and dancing book the Miles Band, you will not be sorry!! Thanks for helping make our wedding the best night of our lives.

Miles and The MILES Band are absolutely amazing! From the moment we initiated an inquiry with Miles he was prompt in responding to us. After chatting with him on the phone, hearing his music and seeing the list of songs they play we knew they were the band for us and we could... Read More not have been more thrilled with their performance. Through the entire process leading up to our wedding Miles was quick to respond, worked with us to accommodate our wedding timeline as well as learning special songs for us. The music that Miles (solo) learned for our ceremony was so special for us to have and extremely well done, absolutely amazing! The music that the band learned for us for our entrance song, first dance and father daughter dance were outstanding. The MILES band are a very talented group of musicians. They had our dance floor packed the entire time. We got so many compliments from our guests about our band! I highly recommend Miles and The MILES Band!

Miles was the perfect addition to our special day! We had a very small wedding (<15 people) in Wilmington, Vermont, and he came highly recommended by our local event planner. We were lucky enough to meet him in the earlier planning stages of our wedding, as he was in town... Read More while we were visiting the area. Miles was very professional, and stayed in great communication throughout the entire process. His song selection was great, and he thought of every little detail when planning, as to avoid any potentially awkward song selections for us - or our guests. Miles even accommodated a couple special requests. We were married outdoors, and then transitioned indoors for a cocktail hour, and he had everything set up to play both locations well ahead of time. While all the songs he plays are amazing, he specially learned our first dance request, and possibly performs it better than the original... We won't say who, to "protect the innocent." We could never speak highly enough of Miles, but it's also important to point out that his pricing is very fair, and worth every penny and more. We can't wait to be able to see a show out some time, or find another reason to have the Miles play another event for us!

We had a fantastic wedding reception thanks to Peter Miles and his band. I had hired them based on reviews and listening to their samples online, and I fully intended to make it to one of his regular public gigs to listen in person, but in the end I couldn't find the time to... Read More get there, so was the tiniest bit nervous never having heard them in person. I should not have worried--Miles and the band were amazing. We had a jazz trio playing during our cocktail hour, then the whole band on the stage during the dinner/dancing part of the reception. Both were perfect--they were able to read the crowd and pick the right sound for the right moment of the evening. Miles had our guests of all generations up and dancing. Hire this band!

My husband and I feel so fortunate to have had the perfect wedding day for us - from the importance our family/friends' attendance and the beauty of the ceremony, all the way down to the elegance of the reception space and the clear, mild weather. However, of all of the... Read More components that went into the weekend we have heard the most feedback on the quality of the band. Without a doubt, Miles and The Miles Band were the highlights of the day. We used Miles for our acoustic ceremony music and a solo acoustic cocktail hour; following dinner The Miles Band played two amazing sets that had the dance floor packed from start to finish. Miles and his band learned three new songs for us - two for the ceremony, and one for our first dance. Miles rightly reserves the right to build the set list for the evening, however he was very accommodating about taking our preferences and feedback into consideration. His song list is extensive, and he is very skilled at putting together a set list that increases in fun and intensity as the evening goes on (e.g. starting the evening with classic rock, and migrating more towards funk at the end). The value of Miles and The Miles Band is unparalleled. Without sounding too much like an emotional bride, it should be said that Miles' voice can literally bring you to tears - the sincerity and clarity of his voice is unrivaled across all levels of the music scene. If you're looking for a communicative, professional, kind-hearted, and talented solo act/band I would suggest no one else than Miles!!
