Some of our Testimonials

Jonah & the Whales did awesome! The weather didn’t cooperate, but the band sure did. We had to move the event inside. The band was just great to work with!

Partacular 2017

They were great performers and lovely people. We were very happy with their rendition of “Amazing Grace!” The rest of their country tunes were awesome. Thank you for all your help Gregg. My mom’s Celebration of Life was everything we hoped it would be.

The City of Oakdale has been contracting with The Music Works for the last 10 years to help assist us in finding the right bands for our Summer Concert Series. From my experience, The Music Works has been nothing but helpful and informative when it comes to asking questions about bands, pricing, and contracts. The management always will recommend a band, give you samples of their music, direct you to their website, and in my 5 years dealing with Gregg Schmitt and The Music Works, I have yet to be let down!

Mike Anderson
Recreation Coordinator, City of Oakdale

The entire party was a success. And, as for working with your company, I appreciated your flexibility, quick turn around and willingness to do research according to my client’s needs.

General Mills 150th Anniversary

Eight years ago (2009) we were looking for some national acts to play an outdoor show. We had a pretty small budget and never thought we could do it. Working with Gregg at TMW brought what we could have only imagined a reality! We started with crowds around 500 and now we have crowds upwards of 2,200!! Gregg worked within our budget to get the best possible routing dates and he knocked it out of the park! Eight years is a long time to get to know somebody. I trust Gregg and wouldn’t think of working with any other agency other than TMW!

If I were a lady I would actually ask Gregg to marry me! That’s how much I trust him.(Ha Ha Ha)

I’m pleased to say I’ve worked with Gregg Schmitt and The Music Works for nearly two decades. Booking agents often get a bad rap. Not in Gregg’s case. He’s built his reputation through hard work and perseverance. I’m convinced, there’s no agent in the Twin Cities who works harder, for his bands.

Jonah & The Whales

Brat Pack Radio did a great job! They drew well and kept the crowd is spite of the weather. Highly recommend!

Onalaska Community Days 2017

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!
