Dear Tom and and the Everyday People Band, 

My husband and I cannot thank you enough for what a wonderful job you did at our wedding on May 4th, 2018. Nathan and I did not stop smiling the entire night. The band kept everyone dancing all night long, and that is one of our favorite memories from our wedding day. Thank you so much for all your help throughout the wedding planning process and answering all my questions very promptly. It was a big weight off of our shoulders to know that you and the band had everything taken care of from MC'ing to the music. We also really appreciated you learning a couple of songs especially for our first dance and mother-son dance. The days and weeks after the wedding, we received SO many compliments on the band and how much fun everyone had out on the dance floor! I can't tell you how many times we heard, "That band was amazing!" We will be recommending Everyday People to any friends planning a wedding or event. We hope you all are doing well and we get to see you at another wedding sometime soon! 

- Pauline and Nathan



Everyday People were great to work with. We opted to have them play two piece (piano and bass) for an additional 2 hours during cocktail hour and dinner and they even worked with us so that they could play outside for part of that time, when the rest of their setup was indoors. They kept everyone dancing for the whole reception and we are pretty sure we saved money on the bar tab because people were staying out on the dance floor instead of standing in line for drinks. We got so many compliments from our guests who enjoyed their music and they did a great job learning our song for us to do our first dance to. Thank you, Everyday People! Heather Mees Posted 1 6 16

To Mike and the entire Everyday People Band!!! WOW!!! I want to thank you for being so amazing and fun, and professional at our daughter’s wedding. From start to finish you have been so easy to work with. You did everything we asked and more! I do believe all 308 guest were on the dance floor one time or another. I can tell you, we never had so much fun dancing, you and your songs were just the best! I can’t count how many guest have asked me “Where did you find that Band?” One guest said he thought it was a D.J. playing the original songs till the dance floor cleared and he saw the entire group playing. He said and I quote “They were just that good!” We appreciate your hard work, amazing talent, and all around congeniality. THANK YOU! You made me look so good to my daughter’s in-laws, and out of town guests! Score! Blessings to you all Liesa & John Hartin

Hey Mike, You guys were absolutely fantastic Saturday! We got so many compliments about you guys! Thank you so much for everything! 08/25/14 



Everyday People was the band that I hired for my wedding on 6/20/14 and I cannot speak highly enough about them. They were quick to respond to any questions and they were so easy to work with. We had the jazz trio during dinner and then the full band after dinner and they made a very smooth transition and kept the music playing all night long! They were organized, on cue and very fun! I received several compliments from family and friends how great they were. They do an awesome rendition of " At last"! In a nutshell they are not your typical wedding band- but they are better! Thanks for a great evening Everyday People! 



I just wanted to tell you that the band was fabulous and made the reception!! Please let them know how great they were and everyone commented on how great they were! Thanks again for all your help! It was a memory maker!!

We booked your band for our daughter’s wedding back on Sept. 24 at the St. Louis Zoo. Your band was amazing! We have received so many compliments and questions about your band! Everyone was dancing and having an incredible time. Your song selection was perfect for our crowd. I will definitely recommend Everyday People to anyone who asks! (posted 10/17/11) 



Just wanted to tell you that we thoroughly enjoyed the band that played at our daughter's wedding reception on May 28th. They were wonderful! We had so many wonderful comments about them and feel very fortunate that they were able and willing to come and play this far from St. Louis - as we're about 100 miles straight east. My husband and I are still recovering from all of the work (especially the yard work) and the planning of the event - but, we have nothing but praise for the excellent job that the band, Everyday People, did. Sincerely, Sue and Wayne Hurliman Flora, IL (posted June 6th 2011)

We want to express our feelings to you and the band for making our wedding the most memorable. I can't count how many people came up to me and told me how great the band sounded and the song selection really made it a great reception. Ours was an older crowd with some guests in there late 80's but your music got everybody on the dance floor and having a great time. When it's 2 weeks after your wedding reception and people are still talking about the band you know you guy's got something going on. A few of the guests wanted to know if we could have a dance every month. Thanks for making our wedding reception the happiest time of our lives. Sincerely Denny and Mary Beth Carrino

I just wanted to thank you and the band personally, for a wonderful evening. I had a great time, and thanks for the CD. Everyone in the band was great, and I loved the way you mingled with the people. You are all GREAT. Bonnie Venice Social Club. 



Subject: 60th anniversary party Message: I want to thank you all for the wonderfull performance you gave at our 6oth anniversary party at the Venice Social Club on Saturday night, June 21st. Everyone I talked to had nothing but the best to say about your group and the songs you sang. We all had a wonderfull time and one woman stated that if you closed your eyes you would believe you were listening to the original singer of the song. Thank you for making our party a huge success.

Everyday People is one of the area’s elite groups performing in the St. louis area for over 25 years. The group is packed with talent and delivers a large sound. If you have the chance to see them in person, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. They will be playing the Loading Dock again this summer.

Dear Tom and all the member of Everyday People: 

You guys ROCK! I had (and am still getting) so many compliments on the band from Saturday's wedding that I've lost count. Most importantly, my Dad kept telling me how wonderful he thought the band was throughout the night... he had to hear it for himself, of course; me telling him ahead of time that I had an awesome band just wasn't good enough to convince him. To see him dancing the night away was a priceless gift. 

Thank you so much for allowing us to change your play list on the fly so many times. Every time I turned around, I was being asked to see if you could play this song or that song. 

I really appreciated your subtle sense of humor and comments throughout the night, the fact that you played at the right decibel level for the hall and the crowd, and your wonderful mix of songs. Your pacing was right on. And thanks so much for throwing on the "special songs" CDs. 

Everyone had the time of their lives, including me. You always hear how the bride is warned that the day will fly by and seem like a foggy memory, and I figured I would not get to have any fun...but I had a blast, and got to dance and dance! 

I simply can't thank you enough....Maybe I can use you guys for an anniversary party some day! If there is anything that I can do to let the world know how great a band you are, I'll do it! I couldn't be happier. There were people there who had never been to a wedding with a live band who are now die-hard converts, thanks to the band.

Dear Tom: 

We really enjoyed having Everyday People play at our daughter's wedding party on Saturday. The guests had a great time. I haven't seen that many people dance at a wedding reception. Please extend our thanks to the band and I am including a gratuity to be shared with the band.

Just wanted to thank you and the band for helping to make our son's wedding reception so much fun. 

The music was great and our guests enjoyed dancing and listening to the music. You played for the group and the music was enjoyed by all ages. We are still receiving compliments from our guests on the great music. 

Our family had a fun time that evening and all went smooth, thanks to your help. 

Great job! Thanks Everyday People. 

Dennis and Barb 


So many of my wedding guests commented how they loved the band and how much fun they had dancing. My father was so excited to have such an excellent band play for my wedding reception. You covered exactly what I was looking for and I loved being the leader of such a great conga line! I would highly recommend your band to any friends or future wedding parties. Great job, well deserved recognition! Thank you so much Everyday People.

When my wife and I were planning our February 2004 wedding, one of the earliest and easiest decisions we made was booking Everyday People for our wedding reception. We had known drummer Mike Ehrhard for only a few months during my recording sessions at his studio, but we instantly recognized his honesty, integrity, professionalism, and talent from day one. Those traits are common among all of the members of Everyday People, and we were privileged to have them entertain at our reception at Windows Off Washington. 

We told them what we wanted and didn't want and they delivered. They even graciously allowed me to sit in to sing with them on a few songs at the reception, including an original, surprise song I had written for my wife. As a fellow musician, I do not give out musical compliments easily, but I, along with my wife, wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Everyday People. They made an already magical day that much more special for us, our family, and our friends with their outstanding performance of their vast repertoire. Thank you again, Everyday People!
