Mr. Brown indicated the entire rider was met and the band well taken care of on each night of this run of dates. Thank you.
James Brown’s Manager
The best thing about working with The Music Works as opposed to booking a band directly is if the band were to break up an agency always has options for us, and we’re not on our own scrambling to find a replacement. As we had to this year. We should have, and will, work with you in the future for ALL of our entertainment needs.
Rockford River Days 2019
We did great with Blackhawk! We sold over 1300 tickets. That was a good number for us. We had the perfect weather and the show went off without any issues. Our beer sales broke the record for a single night.
Branded was a great fit with Blackhawk. You were spot on recommending this combination for our fair!
It is so nice to be able to use someone like you that cares about our success, has the experience you do and we can trust.
Thank you Gregg. We’ll be in touch shortly for our headliner next year.
“Gregg, you’re the best!”
Wannigan Days 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017
I truly enjoy working with you year after year and look for many more years to come!
Strawberry Fest 2018
Gregg has produced at least six or seven shows we’ve performed. If TMW is involved, I know we will be provided with the correct technical equipment, our rider will be met and there will be zero problems, but just as important, we know and look forward to the way the band and the crew are taken care of.
When I called Gregg, the band that I had been counting on had just canceled due to some big change-ups in their band. This was maybe 2 weeks before our event! Gregg was able to fill the date. Not only that, they did it for a reasonable price, showed up early, and put on one of the best performances I have ever heard a cover band do. They are outstanding musicians, for sure, but they’ve really got the vocals covered too. It was an awesome time and we will definitely be inviting these guys back!

I book various corporate clients and festivals including the Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Vikings, and Canterbury Park Racetrack. Often I have specific “types” of bands needed for the public promotions they create. I can always trust a candid and professional band suggestion from Gregg and The Music Works’ office. The bands are always spot on with their professional attitude, equipment, and delivery.
Thank you for operating a high-quality band agency to serve our needs.
