Wedding Reception 2019
"Jake and I had Element for our reception and they did a great job! Michael was in contact since day one and was easy to work with.

George Iowa Freedom Days Celebration 2019 (Chamber Event)
"Michael, First off.......THANK YOU and your band for performing at the George Freedom Days Celebration. During our Sunday morning community waffle breakfast, people were definitely talking about how great you sounded and how professional it was. People were impressed how you not only let the opening act use your equipment but you were talking to them while you were setting up. That was huge for them to see how professionals do things. I will most certainly get online and post a review, you guys earned that much !! As for photos, go to our chamber facebook page of "George Iowa Chamber of Commerce", as people will be posting pictures of events. I personally did not take any photos, so I am really hoping somebody snapped some photos of the band and will get those posted. If another town is having a celebration and they would like a band reference, I will gladly provide one for you.Once again thanks for the professionalism and for providing such great entertainment for our celebrations!"
Company 30th Anniversary Party 2017
We had Element Varierty Band come and play at our companies open house and anniversary party. They were the perfect band for the evening. They showed up early and got their equipment set up and played back ground music for the first part of our event. Once they took the stage the party was in full swing. The band knew every song the was requested but one, yet they still found a way to learn the song and play it by the end of the evening. I would recommend Element Variety Band for any event where you need a wide range of music to please a diverse crowd. Weston Sharp, Vice President, Agri Tech Aviation
