West Coast Music's NEWEST band is a strong and versatile mix of classic American dance tunes spanning 1950s Rock n' Roll to chart topping radio requests of the moment.
Sean and I just wanted to thank you for everything you and your team did to help make our wedding day perfect. Every musician was incredible and professional. We can't thank you enough! Thank you for helping our dreams come true. We look forward to working together soon.

I wanted to take a moment to send you a sincere thank you for helping to make our wedding reception a dance party we'll never forget!
I'm sure this comes as no shock to you, but we had an absolute BLAST with Midnight Special in Northport Point, Michigan. They brought the party and kept it going throughout the night, had the most incredible energy, absolutely nailed all of my strange song requests and were a JOY to be around. I know Northern Michigan isn't the easiest, most exotic destination from LA and we so appreciate them making the trek.

1. Placed on a stage big enough for 4 band members at BEST!
2. Placed in a 55 million dollar home in the basement with 9 foot ceilings…albeit beautiful NOT appropriate for this caliber of band
3. Played to a group of old FARTS that have not danced in 10 to 20 years at best…
1. NOT A COMPLAINT FROM ANY BAND MEMBER FROM START TO FINISH…on the conditions, lack of room on stage, etc. etc.
2. BLEW ALL OF OUR MINDS WITH THE MUSIC MOVES SOUND INTERACTION WITH THE CROWD AND JUST “CAN DO ATTITUDE” DURING THE ENTIRE DAY!
3 OLD FARTS DANCED THE ENTIRE NIGHT, LOVED EVERY MINUTE, USUALLY GO HOME BY 10:30 ROCKED IT UNTIL ALMOST MIDNIGHT
4. HOSTS ALI AND LEWIS WERE OVER THE MOON HAPPY AND ECSTATIC WITH THE TURNOUT, MUSIC AND EVERY FACIT OF THE BAND. THEY HAVE ALWAYS HAD A LOCAL DJ SO THIS WAS SUCH A CHANGE …the band killed it!!
Just wanted to share this and say "thank you!" Feel free to share with the rest of the band!

Midnight Special just played at our wedding a few weekends ago (June 30th) at Ojai Valley Inn & Spa and we just wanted to reach out and let you (and whoever else know) how UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING they were!! They seriously made the wedding! Every single person at the wedding was on their feet dancing the entire time because the band was so incredible!! One of the first things people mention when recapping the wedding is how incredible the band was! Seriously everyone is still talking about it!
There were a few times during the night that I felt like I was at a concert because the crowd was SOOO into the band! I can't even believe how talented each and every one of them were on their own let alone together in that dream team group!
I just wanted to say thank you and let you know how much we appreciated them! If there is anything at all you need us to do like write a review or send pictures from the wedding or anything at all please let us know!
Again, thank you so much! Please let Midnight Special know what an absolutely amazing impact they had on our wedding :)

Midnight special was beyond expectations. We heard from almost everyone they were the best band they had ever seen and really made the night. We are lucky Alexandra suggested your company and introduced us to you. All the music was exactly as requested and the bands performance just could not be better so much so there are a few others wanting their information. The singing, dancing, energy, look just everything was the best. Thank you.
Catherine Shu (Bride)
The band was PHENOMENAL. We loved them, as did all of our guests. The repertoire was great and fantastically executed across genres and styles, the clarity and quality of the sound was amazing. They were fun and charismatic, and seemed to be genuinely having a good time themselves. We were so grateful that they learned so many songs at our request, and they all came out perfectly. At one point, we noticed the whole dance floor facing the band with their arms up, as though they were at a concert rather than at a wedding (in a good way). Several guests commented to us that they were the best wedding band they had ever seen, and Lisa and I certainly agree. I'll copy and paste just one note we got:
"Literally the most unbelievable wedding band I've heard in my life. I never saw a wedding guest hug a member of a band until last night. When they played Shout, it was exactly like the scene from Animal House, but better."
We can't thank the band enough. They really elevated the whole event to another level. We kind of want to get a schedule of weddings they're playing over the next year, so we can crash just to participate in the dancing.
Our experience with the whole WCM team was uniformly positive. Thank you so much for everything over these last few months.
Your band was amazing and powerful. They were the most instrumental in creating the perfect wedding. I would like to thank you for making the event so special. Your timeline was impeccable. We appreciate it so much.
Lots of love,
Shanit & David Levine (POB)
AMAZING! They definitely killed it and our guests all loved them as well! Thank you guys so much!
The Imbimbos (Bride & Groom)
Midnight Special was PHENOMENAL! They guests were raving!! We really enjoyed working with them and the client was so happy. Your sound team was great too! Very easy to work with.
Looking forward to more together!
All my best,
Leslie Kaplan (Planner)
The band was GREAT!
All the guests didn't want the night to end and were chanting "one more song".
Thanks for everything!!
Dearest Jim, Thank you for all your did to make the wedding over the top fabulous.
We are ever so grateful for the time you spent with us to make all of our dreams come true.
Our friend Brian and Lisa Kessler will be calling you soon. A wedding for their son is in the works! Does our band play at Pelican anytime soon? I'd love to surprise the kids and take them to have more great Music!
Sending my warmest thank you,
Dahlia Haas (MOG)
They were absolutely amazing! Everyone raved about them and thought they were the best.
A big thank you to the whole West Coast Music team for helping make our day that much more special.

Thank you all so much for pulling together all details for what was a beautiful event this weekend for Nicole & Mark. I so appreciate all of your hard work and attention to detail to pass along to the bands to make all seamless.
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
All my best,
Everything was great! They kept everyone on the dance floor the whole night!

The band was GREAT! Clients had a large crowd of elderly people and the volume level was a concern, but your team was helpful!
Guests loved the band! FUN NIGHT!!

Dear Fab West Coast Team!
Thank you again for everything! The clients and guests were over the moon with the band & string quartet. They SOOO appreciated the band accommodating last minute requests and especially the surprise dance number.
One thing I did forget to follow through on was the tip for the String Quartet. As you may know, I was on the bridal party and during ceremony/cocktail time, I was overcommitted with wedding party duties unfortunately. Please let me know how I can get this to the musicians. They are in a sealed envelope from the clients and I wanted to ensure that it gets to them.
So sorry for any inconvenience.
Thank you again!
Jacqueline Sheen (Event Planner)
The band was AMAZING! So much fun! Everyone I've ran into or talked to since the wedding has RAVED about Midnight Special! Please tell each of them, THANK YOU!
"It was SIMPLY Amazing...Client loved them! So did the guests.
I cannot thank you enough for the years of doing business with you and WCM. In the past as Sales Manager of Prudential, Wachovia, or Birthday parties, it was important to have great Music. It was easy - I made a call to your great folks and everything was done. It was always done with ease and the music was always spectacular.
When the time came for my ONLY Favorite Perfect Precious Daughter there was no way I was taking any chance less than perfection – the only call to make for Music was you. I understand you easily could have asked me to deal with the great staff you have (as I did in the past) but my ego and control needed you. Thank you for the time spent face to face going over the choices, timelines etc. Thank you for your patience and gracious care and concern.
I knew all was going to be well and perfect - it was better than perfect. Jimmy McFadden has been a great dream to work with. Midnight Special was beyond and better than any of my expectations. They and Leader Sam were fantastic. We had special song requests for the Father Daughter Dance – they performed it perfectly. We had College Fight Songs - they did it. We had a play list of songs - it was if the actual groups were performing them. There wasn’t anything not done to perfection.
There will be other events that will need music and of course I will go with WCM but for you and your staff’s sake, there will never be an event that will need the perfection, control, and hand holding that was needed with this event.
Please give my best to Kelly, Jimmy, Nicole and Sam they are awesome.
Thank you again for the care concern and perfection.
"The band was amazing, certainly one of the highlights of the night. Thank you very much for everything!"
"The band and entire team was amazing! We couldn't have been happier with our experience, and hope to work with everyone again."
"They were amazing!!! We had the best time and everyone loved the music!"
The band was great and both clients were very happy!
We cannot even begin to thank you enough for being part of our special day. Each and every one of your talents is absolutely unparalleled. We were completely blown away by all of the music making our day even more of a dream come true!! It was more than we could have ever asked for! And a special thank you for accommodating my father’s rendition of New York New York…. That was a dream come true for him as well! Everyone has reached out to say how amazing ALL of the music was from ceremony and cocktail hour to the very end of the reception and how no one wanted to stop singing and dancing all night. We are forever grateful for being able to work with you and thank you from the very bottom of our hearts for making Saturday, August 2nd the best day of our lives!

We can't believe it's been a week since the wedding .. John and I are still on cloud 9. Midnight Special was incredible!!!! They were so talented and enthusiastic and kept the east coasters going all night. What a phenomenal group!!!!!!! Bravo to you, Alicia and your talented musicians!
Susan & John Morrongiello
Kelly and I both had an amazing time with the band, and we got unanimously positive reviews from all of our guests. I think the female lead vocalist was different from the one in the website videos? But in either case, she was phenomenal, particularly with the song for the father/daughter mother/son dance. I wish we could listen to it again, but I think we'll have to wait for the videographer's footage. The male lead vocalist was also incredible, as was the rest of the band. The guests all had a great time, and with such great music, the dance floor was a lot more active than we were anticipating--there were many people dancing that I didn't expect to see on the dance floor, so overall, great experience! Thank you again for being a part of our special day!
Kelly and Tan
"I cannot tell you how HAPPY I was with Midnight Special!!! Sam and the rest of the crew rocked the party - The client & guests were SO happy, and they were a pleasure to work with."
We had a great weekend and great Saturday evening! The band was great and the key ingredient to the evening! Very entertaining! My daughter and husband were very pleased.
I expect you will receive future inquiries regarding this band from some of the wedding guests as they plan upcoming events.
Best regards and thank you to the Midnight Special!
