Re: Our Event

Hi My Happy Pill!
OMG …we have received nothing but compliments! The band was great, there were ALWAYS people out dancing (including me who could barely get up and down my stairs yesterday 😊) and I know that everyone loved hearing them while they were in the casino or just visiting. Great set list, great energy, talent was over the top. We loved them!

Thank you!

Lake Mayfield Resort – Wedding

January 2018

My Happy Pill,

First and foremost, I want to say thank you. Thank you to the band that played and performed at such a high level of passion that it teleported everyone on the dance floor to a private Broadway/Vegas show. Thank you for providing an atmosphere that put both my wife and I in center stage without us being the ones performing. Thank you for the level of communication that took place before, during, and after the wedding. Working with you was professional, easy, and always a pleasure.

We were put in contact with you through a friend in the business Bobby P. I knew Bobby worked with multiple people in the wedding scene, so when I knew we were looking at having a band play our wedding Bobby was my go to guy. A little back ground: My wife and I were planning a destination wedding (Puerto Rico) when the Island was hit by not one but two Hurricanes. We were put into a position that we had to make new plans in a short amount of time (weddings standard). We started looking at venues, and to our dismay all venues had already been booked for the date we had chosen. Our date that we chose had strong sentimental value to both of us, so picking a new date was not an option. We put our thinking caps on and came up with an idea of a “back yard wedding.” Fortunately, our back yard is also my place of business, and we drew up an idea that would include an “outdoor wedding” with a “tropical” theme in the Pacific North West in January. Step two on the drawing board was entertainment.

We went to clicked on the Calendar tab and saw that the band was playing at a venue in Portland. We love trips to Portland so without any heads up we drove down for a weekend of fun in the Portland area. We rolled into the venue “fashionably late” which must have been very late in MHP standards because the dancefloor was packed, the band was engaging, and all you could see was people having a great time. Not to mention the ambiance that MHP was creating was electric and contagious. After dancing and taking in the vibe that MHP was putting out we approached someone we saw interacting with the band during one of their breaks. Valerie was so delightful. Valerie took my wife and me into a quiet corner where we could talk. I tried my best to explain my vision of the style of venue we were going to create, but I could see in her eyes “outdoor wedding in January.” We exchanged information, and I invited her and Donovan to the property to see what we were working with.

Not only did everything meet our expectations… but MHP blew the doors off our expectations. They were amazing! It was non-stop entertainment from beginning to end. MHP kept us and our guests on our feet the entire night. The genres of music played kept the whole crowd engaged, and in awe throughout the entire night. Every single band member knew what he or she was doing, as well as what each and every one else was doing. Their interaction/stage presence was hypnotic. They were playing off each other, us (the wedding couple), kids on the dance floor, the videographer, and everyone there felt it. A very common discussion with someone after the wedding goes like: “Thank you for inviting us to your amazing wedding, and OMG!!! That band you booked!!! They WERE AWESOME!!!” I respond, “OMG RIGHT?!?! Followed up with, and I am not sure if you heard, but the band MHP will be playing at this venue in a couple weeks. If you want to hear them again us, and a bunch of friends are headed down to relive our special night. Who can say that? Who plans to go with a bunch of their friends to a venue after a wedding to listen to the band that played your wedding? EVERYONE! Because MHP is that Awesome, which is why “fashionably late” is too late for this band. Because MHP does not engage the crowd as the night progresses, MHP engages the crowd when they pick up the mic.

Take it from a couple who went from being devastated at having to re-plan a wedding because their venue was literally devastated, to being told “Puerto Rico would have been awesome, but your wedding was Amazing.”

You helped us at making our very special day an Amazing one, and we couldn’t have picked a better band than MHP… Period! Why? Because My Happy Pill… what music is!

From the bottom of our hearts

Thank You

The quality of music was perfection, the variety of genres was impressive and most importantly, every song was fun and danceable. The band’s energy level was incredible, it kept the crowd electrified and engaged the entire time. You gave an outstanding performance from start to finish.

I appreciated your constant communications regarding the event purpose, venue, set-up, payment and feedback. Most importantly, the band sounded amazing and was downright fun.

Thank you,

Tim Martin – Wedding Reception

December 2015

I could make this really short. If you have the opportunity to book My Happy Pill for your next event, do it. The entire process is simple and professional, from contracting to set up, performance and tear down. Expectations are set and met. This is not some flaky operation. These are professionals and they conduct themselves that way. So what about the performance? Your guests will be impressed. At our wedding reception, I heard the same comment again and again. How did you get a band this good for your wedding? Yes, indeed. My Happy Pill plays music that will get your crowd up and dancing. The joy they take in playing songs they love is infectious! No clichés, just good music that gets you up and moving. Ask yourself this question. Why do you book a band, anyway? You book a band to entertain your guests and leave them with smiles on their faces. What better way to do that than a good dose of My Happy Pill!

To Whom It May Concern,

I recently booked the group My Happy Pill to perform at a new venue in Portland, Oregon called The Rose Room Bar and Grill. Their show was on Friday June 17th.

I was extremely impressed with MHP, as were the RR’s patrons (many of whom told me they had seen them before and had come out exclusively to see them again). The venue was packed the entire evening and several patrons told me as they were leaving that MHP was the best band they’d seen at The Rose Room yet. Several staff members also volunteered that it was one of the best shows at the venue to date.

MHP is a high energy group of very professional musicians who know how to entertain a crowd and keep them happy all night long. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for entertainment. In fact, I’m tentatively planning to have them back at The Rose Room for return engagements in both July and August.

We recently hired My Happy Pill for our biggest event of the year and they did not disappoint! Their sound was incredible, and they had such a great energy. I especially loved how they interacted with the crowd. I have had multiple club members contact me after the fact to get the name of the band. Thank you so much, My Happy Pill! We can’t wait to bring you back for another event!

To My Happy Pill:

We just want to share how amazing it was to have My Happy Pill celebrate with us and perform at our wedding reception this past September. MHP gave out such a fun and engaging energy all night and drew everyone out onto the dance floor – which is where most of our guests remained until the very last song was played! We first heard My Happy Pill play at Billy Blues while attending a friend’s birthday party, and we knew immediately they were the band we HAD to have play at our wedding and when they said YES, we were thrilled, and knew our reception was going to be amazing and our guests were going to be blown away. MHP is comprised of such a highly talented group of musicians who share their love of performing by engaging with the audience and integrating their own unique personal styles into the songs they play. They really know how to bring out the fun and their enthusiasm is contagious. We heard from everyone repeatedly afterwards, telling us that it was definitely one of the best weddings they had been to and we credit My Happy Pill for contributing to our HAPPY theme, and for helping us celebrate one of the happiest days of our lives.

Thank you!!!

Best, “A & W” 🙂


Wedding of Kristi & Rob,

Hi Valerie, Bryan, Donovan (and all My Happy Pill band members),

I wanted to reach out and express my sincerest gratitude for your help with last night’s wedding. Kristi, Rob and their guests had an AMAZING time, and we owe so much of the success of the night to My Happy Pill.

As a wedding coordinator, I have had the opportunity to work with many musicians over the years, and I am so grateful to the band for your flexibility and willingness to help with last-minute changes, requests, scheduling changes, layout changes… you name it, and the band had to endure it yesterday. Your professionalism was so incredibly appreciated, and so wonderfully refreshing. I know it’s not always easy to adapt to last-minute changes, but My Happy Pill has definitely defined themselves in my eyes as true professionals with a passion for what they do.

Special thanks to Bryan as “MC” – you did an AMAZING job. There is NO WAY we could have pulled off last night’s events without you.

If you would like to direct me to your favorite “Review” site, I would be happy to write a testimony for future couples, event coordinators, etc. to ensure that they know how much value MHP will add to their event.

Thank you again for all you have done. I hope you enjoyed the party last night (despite the changing circumstances), and I hope that we have the opportunity to work together on future projects as well. I will be personally referring you to my future couples for live music with confidence.

Most Sincerely,
Yelena King
