Here are some of the wonderful things that our clients have been gracious enough to say about us over the years. We can't say thank you enough to all of the people that have let us be a part of their special events. After the date, don't be a stranger. Send us your pics and come hang out with us again at a public show where we can say thanks in person.
I wanted to send a quick thank you and tell you what a great time we had last night...you guys are great! Every single guest told me what fun they had and how good you were. Also, Howard got pretty good video of the band when my granddaughter was tambourine-ing her little heart out with such joy and happiness (she got off the stage and told her mom "Wow, that was fun, my heart is beating so fast"). I thought that was priceless.
Your female singer is stellar!!!! Thank you again, I am so glad we decided to have you come play...I would have paid double (don't tell your boss that haha).

I wanted to say thank you for all your help in getting everything done
for our wedding! Maggie Speaks was absolutely
fabulous!!! We had such a great time and heard from many of our
guests what a "Great Band" we had!!!
We greatly appreciated Dave getting both kids on stage to sing! I am
sure they will remember that for the rest of their lives.
I know I will.
Again, we are so grateful we made the right choice in bands. We
could not have asked for more from any of you!
Thank you so much!!!!!!!

Jonah and I just wanted to send out sincerest thank you for playing at our wedding. You and your band did an outstanding job with the music. You were incredibly fun and really got the guests out on the dance floor. We have gotten so many comments, text messages, emails, and calls about you and the band. It's quite amazing! Jonah and I are so thrilled with how things turned out and it's largely in part to your performance. Thank you for rocking it out!
We're certainly the biggest Final Say fans ever and we look forward to coming to your shows in the future!
Thank you again...for everything. You exectued the reception to perfection!

Maggie Speaks on June 17th, 2011
I just wanted to thank you once again. Not only were you guys everything I'd promised people musically (and trust me, everyone was raving about "the band" all night Saturday and into Sunday), but your group was a pleasure to work with every step of the way, from when I first saw you on a corporate event in Cancun, all the way to the wedding in Washington DC. Thanks. I hope Nancy and I get the chance to see you again somewhere down the road.
Marc Bastow, Father of the Bride
Maggie Speaks on June 17th, 2011
We just wanted to say how much we appreciated all of your help. The band was fantastic! It was so hard to tear myself away from the dance floor to take pictures, etc. because I was always missing a great song! The attention we got from the band on and off stage was really appreciated as well.
Jeannie Navarro, Bride
Maggie Speaks on June 3rd, 2011
WOW!!! I can't begin to say enough about Maggie Speaks! You guys were absolutely amazing! All of our guests are raving that we had the best band ever. I can't agree more. I never left the dance floor... and most of the wedding guests were with me! At one point we had to get our caterer to move lounge furniture so the dance floor was larger.
Also thank you for being so professional and such a pleasure to work with. My entire family was extremely impressed with everything. Thank you. We will certainly be writing rave reviews wherever we can!!
Katie Malone, Bride
Maggie Speaks on April 28th, 2011
I just wanted to thank you and the band for providing us with such spectacular entertainment the night of our wedding! It was SO important to me to have good music and for everyone to dance and that was definitely accomplished thanks to you. We have received tons of compliments on the band and people keep talking about how great you all were. It was perfect and I really appreciate the outstanding service and attention to detail. We will and have already recommended you to several friends so I hope to be able to hear you again someday!
Kelly Bowgren, Bride
Spoken Four on April 8th, 2011
I couldn't thank you enough for such a great job Maggie Speaks did for our wedding. In addition to the great music, you guys are so professional and understand the needs of your customers. I will continue to spread the good news about Maggie Speaks and your whole company. It is rewarding to know that you can trust your vendor but also enjoy them. I will keep my eyes on the lookout for your upcoming events. We can?t wait to see you guys perform again. There were too many good things said to list but I do know after our wedding you found a lot of new fans. Once again great job!
Michael Bulow, Groom
Maggie Speaks on February 28th, 2011
Spoken Four is fantastic! Everyone, and I truly mean all of our guests, commented on how wonderful the band was. Your music had everyone dancing all night (all of us from 20 to 70). The emcee was great. Thank you for making our evening so enjoyable and fun! I wish I had more daughters to marry so we could party with you again! I enjoyed working with you as you were very accessible and made the planning very easy and stress-free. I would highly recommend Spoken Four!
Paula Schaefer, Mother of the Bride
Spoken Four on December 30th, 2010
I just wanted to drop you a quick note and tell you how much our guests raved about Spoken Four. The band was fantastic. The band was a pleasure to work with the week prior and night of our wedding. Everything went through without a hitch. We started late and the band only took one break which was appreciated. Additionally, the band learning and playing our first dance was a great touch. Thanks again for a wonderful evening and we will be sure to recommend you and your bands for future weddings and events.
Jason Cocco, Groom

Maggie Speaks on October 22nd, 2010
I want thank all the members of Maggie Speaks for their fabulous work last weekend at my daughter Maggie's, wedding celebration! It was all just fabulous and our family and friends had a simply wonderful evening! We are a dancing crowd and couldn't have had a better time out on the dance floor! Everything was flawless and our guests were so pleased with the band! They were all asking about Maggie Speaks because none of our group has used you before! It was a perfect fit with our lively, dancing buddies! Please pass along my thanks to all the Maggie Speaks players! You were terrific!
Katy Nowlin, Mother of the Bride
Maggie Speaks on October 15th, 2010

WOW! Simply put, thank you! We had an amazing time and were truly impressed with your effort, energy, performance, and talent. Thank you so much for making our wedding day such a fun celebration! Our guests have ranted and raved about you since we left that evening and we have heard nothing but positive, incredible feedback. From Los Angeles to New York, you impressed our guests across the nation this weekend.
Thanks for everything; for being flexible and professional as well as awesome! Thanks so much. We'll see you around Chicago!
Brittany Coffin, Bride
Maggie Speaks on August 13th, 2010
I just wanted to send you a quick note telling you how great the band was for the Faron / Greenberg wedding. The band was so helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to make their wedding so perfect. They were friendly and enthusiastic and sounded AMAZING! The fact that they took the time to learn the couple?s first dance so it could be played live was truly wonderful. I had such a great experience working with them and my clients were thrilled. I hope to work with you again in the future.
Alexis Kolpak, Planner
Spoken Four on August 13th, 2010
I can't thank you enough for the amazing job Final Say did at our wedding. There were definitely skeptics (like my mom), when I told them that I saw you guys at a bar; thank goodness everyone trusted me! I have gotten so many compliments on the band and how charismatic you were as an emcee. Even my wedding planner has decided to pass your name along to her sister who is also a wedding planner. You helped make our night perfect and I won't forget how amazing the evening was. Please feel free to use me as a reference if you ever need one! All the best and thanks again!
Wendy Macri, Bride
Final Say on August 13th, 2010

Final Say on August 6th, 2010
Frank and I want to extend our many thanks for your amazing performance at our wedding on July 3rd! Not only did you sound incredible, you brought an energy to the party that was absolutely electrified the whole room! For the past 1 1/2 months we have been receiving nothing but compliments about the music! Our guests described you as, "amazing, phenomenal, unreal (my favorite), and the best band they have ever heard!" In fact, my bridesmaid, Joanna and her fiance Nick loved you so much, they booked Final Say for their wedding next year! We're looking forward to that, obviously! You honored all of our requests and personalized a song list that got everyone on the dance floor and kept them there all night! Several of our guests that NEVER dance at weddings, were dancing all night! We have the pictures to prove it! Dayna's rendition of "To Make You Feel My Love" was everything I had imagined and more. Thank you. We loved how you surprised us with songs like, "California Girls" and at some point, I think Dave morphed into Eminem! Amazing! Booking you was the best decision we made about our wedding! You not only rocked the whole night, you all were some of the nicest, most down to earth people we've met! Thanks a million!
Gina and Frank Demonte, Bride & Groom
Maggie Speaks on July 2nd, 2010
Don't be surprised if you get calls from the guests at our wedding requesting Final Say. Everyone can't quit talking about how much fun they had especially due to the band. I literally had to kick people out of Maggiano's at midnight despite the dance floor
still being packed at that time. It was an awesome night! Thanks again for working with us.
Sheri Zebrauskas, Bride
Final Say on July 2nd, 2010
I just wanted to thank Spoken Four for making our wedding unbelievable. Paige and I can't thank you enough for making all the announcements for the introductions and cake cutting so simple. When you plan the wedding from out of state, it's nice to hit cruise control on the wedding day and let you guys do what you do best. My Family was born with two left feet and we usually shy away from the dancing. But that dance floor was packed from the opening song, all the way through your encore, which I can't tell you how impressive that is. We still have family and friends talking about how unbelievable the wedding was. So thank you very much for making it an extremely memorable party, we really appreciate everything that you guys do.
Anthony Schmid, Groom
Spoken Four on June 11th, 2010
We just wanted to say thank you for making our wedding such a blast. All of our guests complimented us on great the music was and we have you to thank. See you during your shows this summer!

Todd and I can't thank you enough for such a fabulous time. You guys were absolutely amazing and our guests were RAVING about you all night long. I know I had the best time of my life and I have you to thank for helping my wedding day be everything I wanted and much more. And thank you for adding the female singer - she was great! I hope you guys enjoyed yourselves as well. I will make sure to recommend you guys to all of our family and friends for any of their upcoming events.

Many, Many thanks for another amazing wedding. We have been so blessed to work with you not only once, but twice. I have been on the phone since Sunday morning nonstop with many compliments, but especially about your very talented band. It was another huge success. As always, we appreciate your very hard work and the willingness to put together another show stopping event. AMAZING!!!!!!! On behalf of myself and family, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. It is a privilege to know you. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
Maryellen Crowley, Mother of the Bride
Maggie Speaks on November 27th, 2009
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the band for the excellent time at our Halloween wedding! We had so much fun all night long! The dance floor was always packed, with all of our guests, from age 5 to 85! So many people came up to us all night long, and for weeks afterwards raving about Final Say! You all were a cinch to work with! From the pre-planning, to the day of, you guys were wonderful about checking in, and keeping everything flowing seamlessly! I can't praise you enough! I attached a couple pictures for you guys... I think the second one is from the Journey song "Don't Stop Believing"...It really was one of the best singular moments in my life! We have some hilariously awesome pictures of the dance floor since we were rocking so hard all night long!
Thanks again! If you ever need a recommendation, feel free to ask! I'd be happy to provide one!
Kate and Jason Hallenbeck, Bride & Groom
Final Say on October 30th, 2009
Maggie Speaks played at our wedding reception, and to this day our guests are still talking about how fantastic they were. These guys are talented, professional, high energy and fun, and wonderful to work with. Friends and family were approaching us to say good-bye at the end of the evening, and ended up staying one song after the next because they couldn't tear themselves away from the dance floor. We knew the band had a big responsibility in making sure the evening flowed properly and followed a strict timeline, and after going through all of the wedding details with the band, we knew everything was going to be perfect. Even after we sprung a last minute change on them at the reception, they didn't bat an eye and everything was flawless. Their song choices are fantastic, they sound amazing, and you'll be singing along to all of your favorites as you dance the night away. Maggie Speaks definitely made our wedding a stand-out among all the rest, and we highly recommend them for your next special event!
Jessica and Brent Wayburn, Bride & Groom
Maggie Speaks on October 2nd, 2009
Also, we wanted to send a special thanks for including the female vocalist in our package. She was AMAZING. If you ever need a reference, please feel free to pass on our information. We hope all is well, and I'm sure we'll see you soon.

Spoken Four on October 2nd, 2009
The Band was AMAZING! We've gotten so many compliments from our guests and we voted them the best vendor of the night! They truly made the wedding memorable and exciting for all of the guests and for us of course! Everyone loved the music and Robby and his crew were phenomenal!
Katie Lenz, Bride
Final Say on September 25th, 2009
Thanks for making our wedding AMAZING!!! You guys were awesome!! So many of my guests told me and I agree that you guys are the best wedding band EVER! You made the whole night perfect. We can't wait to catch a show of yours around town.

We just wanted to say thank you to you and the band. Maggie Speaks was absolutely fabulous. They made the reception. The dance floor was packed the whole time. Julie and I have received so many compliments about them, that we cannot keep track of them anymore. You guys made our special day, even better and gave us memories for a lifetime. Thanks again and we will always recommend you guys to all of our friends and family. We will see you at a future show.

Final Say on July 17th, 2009
Before Josh and I leave for Hawaii I wanted to say how much we and our guest enjoyed Final Say at our wedding this past Saturday. Robby was great to work with leading up to the event and even greater to hear in person. People were on the dance floor all night and we even had some of our older guest stay until the end just because they were entertained by the music and the band?s performance. My family is from a small town. They have never been to a wedding with a live band. Everyone commented how great they were and how amazed they were at their singing, song choices and performance!!!! I mean EVERYONE!!!! It really made our wedding memorable and I congratulate you for bringing on such a wonderful group! I know many of my guest will be looking forward to hearing them again at some local Chicago venues.
Amber and Joshua Betley, Bride & Groom
Final Say on July 3rd, 2009
Jessica and I wanted to thank you so much for performing at our reception. You guys were amazing! Everyone we talk to that attended our wedding said you guys made the party! I could not agree more. Interestingly enough we were in Napa for our honeymoon and in downtown Napa they had a Taste of Napa going on with a band providing music for the evening. They were a talented group but they didn't hold a candle to you guys. It was funny because they would start playing a song that you performed at our wedding and we would get really excited but they just didn't have that x-factor that you guys have. From energy of performance to pitch to feeling where your audience is at you guys are very gifted. We hope that the summer is going well and that you continue to be busy with gigs. We thank you once again for making our wedding reception a wonderful celebration.
Chris Fossum, Groom
Spoken Four on June 26th, 2009
We can not say enough good things about Final Say. They were very professional and really easy to work with. We let them chose the song set and they absolutely rocked it. The dance floor was packed all night and everyone I talked to said it was one of the best bands they had ever heard at a wedding. Several people told me the band was so good that they thought it was a DJ because the quality was like the original. I also had people say they don't dance and they danced at our wedding! We are so pleased and have already recommended Final Say to other people. The band was exactly what we wanted and they made our wedding so fun and memorable. Thanks to Final Say. You guys truly rock and know how to put on a show!!?
Carrie and Same Matthis, Bride & Groom
Final Say on June 18th, 2009
I can't tell you how happy Lee and I were with your performance at our wedding on May 30th. We received countless compliments about how good the music was and how talented you were. You guys really made our wedding spectacular! I have never had so much fun at a wedding or saw a dance floor so full. Of course I am biased. Thanks for your professionalism and great music. I loved the surprise of hearing Keith Urban!! The wedding celebration was the perfect start to our marriage. Thanks!
Amy and Lee Russell, Bride & Groom
Maggie Speaks on May 29th, 2009
Maggie Speaks played at my daughter, Maureen's, wedding on Saturday. I just want to thank you again. Your band really made the wedding fun. Everyone is calling me to tell me how great the music was. I can?t tell you how many new fans you have gained.
We're all looking forward to summer so we can see you at the neighborhood fests. Maureen has been a fan of Maggie Speaks for a while now and I can't tell you how really special you made her wedding day. She had the best time. The dance floor was never empty and it was great having the music playing even while you were on break. I could go on and on, but thanks.
Eileen Bowery, Mother of the Bride
Maggie Speaks on May 8th, 2009
Hello! I just wanted to drop you a note to say how extremely pleased Toni and I were with your performance at our wedding reception! Final Say did an excellent job of keeping the party moving along and fun was had by all! We have received numerous compliments/inquiries on the band and have had nothing but good things to say. I have to warn you, our family and friends can be a little fanatically about following a band once we find a good one, so you might see some of us showing up at future shows! Thank you very much for helping to make our special day all the more enjoyable!
Mike Traczek, Groom
Final Say on May 8th, 2009
I just wanted to send a quick note saying thank you for the great performance at our wedding. The feedback from the guests was overwhelmingly positive and we received so many compliments regarding the best music ever at a wedding. Also, Kelly and I had a wonderful time. Again, we appreciate all the hard work and the travel you had to endure to get to Madison. If you ever need a reference, definitely feel free to contact me. Thanks again.
Brian Chambers, Groom
Spoken Four on February 27th, 2009
Once again, thank you for the wonderful music that you provided for the cocktail hour and reception for Erin and Sean last weekend. You have no idea how many compliments we have gotten over the course of the past week regarding our choice of music. You guys are exceptional, and are so well received by all ages. Everyone had a great time! Our youngest daughter is 18--so hopefully it will be a few years before we celebrate her wedding. I will call you immediately--if you guys are still playing, you will have the job!! Seriously, when I need any type of music/entertainment I will call you first. I appreciated your professionalism and attention to details. Thank you very much.

We just had to write to say THANK YOU for such an awesome time at our wedding. Spoken Four totally rocked it and everyone had the most amazing time. The dance floor was filled the entire time, exactly what we wanted! Even aunts and uncles I have never seen leave their seats were dancing like maniacs! I can't tell you how many people have been raving about the band, and I assure you I have been passing on your information. It was an absolute pleasure working with you and I hope our paths cross again soon.

I wanted to drop a quick note to thank you so much for all that you did to make our wedding day special. You and the rest of the band are so talented and really know how to handle a wedding crowd.

You will definitely get some followers from our wedding. We will watch the website for upcoming gigs.
Lisa and Rick Nelson, Bride & Groom
Maggie Speaks on October 2nd, 2008
I just realized that I did not send you a note thanking you and the rest of the band for a GREAT time at our daughter?s wedding in September. I have had several people call me and say that the band was best. Thanks again for letting Jodi sing the first dance to the bride and groom. It was something they had talked about for years. You guys are truly a class act and you made the wedding memorable.
Doug Mulay, Father of the Bride
Spoken Four on September 26th, 2008

Julie Feldman, Bride
Final Say on September 12th, 2008
We have been getting rave reviews from all of our guests -- our friends and family had such an amazing time at the reception and they just loved the band and music. Everyone was able to sing along to every song and the songs just kept getting better and better, people just didn't stop dancing - the transitions were perfect. The dance floor was packed the entire evening with people young and old, I saw people dancing that I never would have expected! The vibe from the crowd was so positive and upbeat, you guys really set the tone. It was a blast. We were so happy with the band's performance and willingness to help with the annoucements and initial songs. You guys were so easy to work with, my sister and bridesmaid said they wished they could work with you again or see you play again (they live in TX and MO unfortunately). Thank you so very much for making our evening memorable and for being so great to work with. We didn't want the night to end, and neither did our guests! We appreciate all of your hard work in the performance! And we hope that you had an enjoyable evening as well. It was such a great time for all! Thanks again! I will definitely recommend you guys to anyone I'm able to talk to!

Steve and I want to thank you for your awesome performance at our wedding on Saturday night. You were truly amazing. We planned our wedding for a year and a half and Maggie Speaks was by far the best wedding decision we made. Our guests were crazy about you! Well over 100 of our guests commented that you were the best wedding band that they have ever seen. I saw so many guests on the dance floor stand in awe for the first few seconds of each song as the transitions between artists were flawless. Hiring Maggie Speaks is as close as we could get to having all of the original artists in the room! Your professionalism and commitment to making our reception perfect was much appreciated. I will highly recommend your services to anyone, without an ounce of hesitation. Although Steve and I are both thrilled that all of the wedding stress is behind us, we both agree that we would love to repeat the dancing part of the day! We will continue to see you at shows in our area. Thanks again so much. Feel free to give out my email address as a reference to future wedding planners.

We got so many compliments for having such great entertainment. Their energy was just awesome. Thank you so much! Again, they were awesome, awesome, awesome. We both had soooooooo much fun as did all of our guests! We danced to the very last minute!
Dina De La Font, Bride
Spoken Four on May 16th, 2008
We were very impressed with the performance of Final Say for our wedding reception. Final Say played with incredible energy and covered a huge range of songs that truly sounded better than the originals. The dance floor was full all night. We are still getting rave reviews from our family and friends that Final Say was the best cover band that they have seen, and we agree. Robby, the lead singer, was exceptional and the whole band had great stage presence and excellent musicianship. We worked with the band prior to the wedding to give our input on our song preferences to come up with the perfect song list for us. It was one great song after another and the sound was perfect. The band was professional, great to work with, and had all of the set up and sound system perfected prior to the reception. When our dinner went longer than planned the band only took one short break and played straight through the rest of the night. We HIGHLY recommend Final Say for any occasion!
Rob and Mary Dummert, Bride & Groom

Maggie Speaks on November 16th, 2007
The band was FANTASTIC! I CANNOT tell you how many compliments we have received and how EVERYONE has commented that the dance floor was CONSTANTLY packed! It's hard to tell when you're the bride - because you're having so much fun anyway and you think everything is great - but to go back and look at the pictures and see the look on everyone's faces and the crowded floor, made me so happy!
Leah Farrasso, Bride
Final Say on November 16th, 2007
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks for helping make our wedding what everybody in attendance felt was the best wedding they had ever been to. While the ceremony, the food, and the setting were more than we could have expected, it was the reception that put it over the top. Spoken Four's professionalism, talent, and enthusiasm made for a magnificent night. From our banquet manager who was impressed just by your sound check, to the Director of Catering who stopped in and told Sylvia that "your band blows away the band at my event" (which was occurring at the same time), to attendees from the other wedding who kept stopping by and peeking in to listen, to all of our guests - the sentiments were unanimous regarding Spoken Four. Not only are you excellent musicians and performers, but every detail was perfect, down to selecting "Come Away With Me" for the cake cutting. We also really appreciated the option to play our own music during dinner. That definitely puts a more personal twist on the event. Regarding your actual performance - absolutely amazing, and unbelievably entertaining. We chose Spoken Four for your ability to play anything and everything genre-wise, and you didn't disappoint. I'd have to say that at some point during the evening, the significant majority of our guests actually danced (from a friend who is a typical wallflower who I bumped into on the dance floor - "I have to dance, man, it's Earth, Wind and Fire", to my godmother who refused to dance due to "sore feet" but flew out of her chair at the first mention of Neil Diamond). The few that didn't make it to the dance floor just kicked back, enjoyed the show, and told us afterwards how much fun they had. I could go on and on and on, but suffice it to say you've garnered fans for life. While we obviously wanted our guests to have a great time, it was important to us to actually enjoy the night ourselves - which we did, immensely. We can honestly say that it was one of, if not the, most fun nights of our lives. Thank you again for a night we'll never forget.

I just wanted to drop you guys a line to let you know how much everyone enjoyed your music at my brother?s wedding reception at Eaglewood Resort on Saturday. Your blend of musical styles reached all ages and I even had to ask my 16 year old cousin who sang a song. She informed me that it was ?The Killers?. We had people come from all over, even Japan, and they all raved about how great you were and how great the reception was! There were people from the other wedding reception trying to sneak in to get a taste of what was going on in there! We live in Springfield but are in Chicago quite often (especially during baseball season) so we will try to catch another show! Again, thanks for making my brother?s wedding such a great day!

We just wanted to send a quick note to thank you again for doing such a great job at our party last Saturday. Everyone I talk to keeps commenting on how you guys rocked and were completely impressed with the range and talent of all of you. We had such a great time.

I just wanted to send you a quick note about Spoken Four from my wedding at the Midday Club. I cannot tell you how many people have complimented the band and told Mary and me it was the best wedding they ever attended. The band was great to work with, very easy going, and they played what we wanted to hear and did it well. The crowd packed the floor the WHOLE night and had a great time. I would recommend them very HIGHLY for anyone looking for a band. Thanks again for helping to make our day very memorable.

I just wanted to thank you for helping to make our wedding the best ever. We received so many complements about how fantastic you all were. Everyone we have run into said that the music was exceptional and you all were so professional. Thanks again for making our wedding day so special. We have been to 3 wedding since ours the end of August and nothing compares to having you all perform.

We just wanted to take a moment to thank you for making our wedding unforgettable! You guys were amazing and such a pleasure to work with. You far exceeded our expectations and our guests are still talking about it. I know you?ll get a few calls, as we?ve been sending out your contact info to everyone. We can?t thank you enough. You helped make our wedding what we had hoped and dreamed it would be!

I had the pleasure of dancing the night away with you at my friend's daughter's wedding at the Planetarium. You are just terrific! The variety of music that you so brilliantly covered was amazing...you are talented, have a great stage presence, I just can't say enough. My husband is exhausted, and I am still smiling with the memory of a great time!

Wow! What a great performance you and the guys put on for us on Saturday. We could not have hoped for anything better. The dance floor was hopping and Rebecca never left it except for occasional wardrobe malfunctions. I don't know if you guys get standing ovations and encore requests at every wedding you do, but you should! We had the best time and absolutely everyone that was in attendance said you were the best band they had ever seen at a wedding. You guys were terrific! Thank you so much.

I just wanted to thank you and your band for such a spectacular show at the Teasdale wedding! You all were amazing! What a great song list you put together for this wedding...it was perfect! And, I was truly impressed with how professional you all were, and how responsible you were in doing everything in a timely manner, and making the proper announcements! You made my job that much easier! Thank you for everything! I hope we have the opportunity to work together again!

Everyone had a great time and loved the band. Thanks for being so laid back with our "not-so-shy" group of friends. We have some leads for you for future events.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Our party was such an enormous success, and all we can do is thank Maggie Speaks. From sound check, until the last song, you (band and sound crew), acted as professionals. The performance you gave was second to none. You kept a level of professionalism that is compared to the best I've seen. We have been bombarded with calls regarding how good the band was! We are organizing a large group of attendees (by popular demand) to come to a show after the honeymoon. We look forward to it. Thank you for the professionalism, the courtesy, and the hard work you all put in to make the evening a great success.

I just wanted to thank you, for such an awesome job at our wedding on 9/9! The night was just fabulous and everything we imagined it to be. Joe and I wanted to throw a bash and for the dance floor to be packed the whole time....mission accomplished! Thanks again and we?ll see you soon!

A couple weeks ago we worked together in Geneva at a wedding. Needless to say, I enjoyed your music immensely. You guys let me even photograph the worked up crowd from your band stand! One of the best I ever heard on a wedding.

Spoken Four on August 11th, 2006
To say you rocked our wedding would be a huge understatement. You took the party to the next level. When we set out to find a band, we had one thing in mind. We wanted a party more than a boring reception. If that?s what people are looking for, then they should look no further than Spoken Four. People are still talking about how awesome the band was. You fulfilled everything my wife and I were looking for. We had 225 people at our reception and everyone was on the dance floor.

I just came from the wedding at Ruffled Feathers. You guys are amazing! I have never, ever heard a live band like yours. Just wanted to drop you a line to let you know how fantastic your show was.

Spoken Four was just awesome tonight for our daughter's wedding in Decatur. I have a niece who is getting married next April and they may be contacting you about the band. Again thank you for allowing us to experience the great performance of Spoken Four.

Spoken Four on July 14th, 2006
We just wanted to send a quick thank you for all you did for our wedding on July 1st. We had such a great time and everyone is still talking about how awesome you guys were. We didn't tell anyone that we booked you because we wanted it to be a surprise (especially for all the Illinois State University folks)... so it was a blast to see everyone's reaction. You all made the night something we will never forget! Thanks again and I'm sure we will be out to see you guys playing soon!
Darren and Laura Hughes, Bride & Groom

I wanted to say a big thank you to you and the band for the incredible job you did at our wedding on June 3rd. We returned from our honeymoon to emails and phone calls about the wedding, and people said that the band was their favorite part. I've never seen a dance floor so packed at a reception, and I love the fact that everyone wanted you to stay later. My sincerest thanks for your professionalism and amazing talent! You guys really made our wedding the best day we could have hoped for. We'd be happy to serve as a reference if you need us.

Tyler and I wanted to thank you A MILLION TIMES over for playing at our wedding on April 22nd. Truly, you made the wedding, and every single one of our guests (both young and old) commented on not only how wonderful your voice and musical talents are, but how diverse and lively you were. A couple of people even want to make the trip back to Chicago just to see y?all play again. It couldn?t have been more PERFECT! You?ll be seeing us at all of your Chicago shows ? WE CAN?T THANK YOU ENOUGH.
