"...I wanted to say 'Thanks, thanks, thanks!' Our reception at DM Golf was wonderful. The song selection was right on, and I think everyone was dancing from the moment you guys hit the first downbeat. You made our special day a great success with our guests, and you provided us a lifetime of memories." Ryan Basham, Chicago, IL
It has been my pleasure to both recommend and work with Ed Kelly and FreeStyle for many years, at both Glen Oaks Country Club and here at the Marriott. Their professionalism and music variety assists me in making every event complete. FreeStyle is my #1 recommendation to all of my clients for live music in the Des Moines area. They keep the evening "rockin'" all night long.
"...David and I want to thank
you for doing such a wonderful job last night. Our wedding was so important
to us and we wanted everything to go just right. So many people commented
on how good the band was.

"I can't begin
to tell you how much we enjoyed the wedding dance last weekend at the
ISU Memorial Union. The celebration was just perfect -- exactly as we
had envisioned -- and you were a major part of that success! How do
you know so many songs!"
Deb Parker / Ames, IA
"...just wanted to thank you
...for the lovely music Saturday night. The kids thought 'A Little Trip
to Heaven' was fabulous. They couldn't believe that special touch. Thanks
for helping make a special day even better!"
Barb Toot, Mother of the Bride
"...Thank you for being a special
part of our wedding. We have had so many comments on how great you guys
are. Meredith especially wanted to thank you for 'customizing' the words
in her song and making the father/daughter dance one of the most memorable
parts of the evening."
Bob & Meredith Dohmen
believe a good band is the most important element
of successful events -- weddings or other celebrations. Whether
prefer to dance "cheek to cheek" or move to the beat of a salsa,
and everything in between, this band delivers the best sound. They are
fine-tuned to the needs of the guests, knowing when to change the tempo
and vary the music. FreeStyle always entices partygoers to the dance
ever-eager for the next set.
As a portrait and wedding photographer, I have been to countless events. It is clear to me that the music is key to an entertaining party, and I will always pick a live band over a dj. Also clear is that FreeStyle is this area's premier event band for two simple reasons: Talent (very important), Crowd Friendliness (even Grandma will get up and dance). They appeal to all age groups, keep the party alive, and are a must for any elegant affair.

"When assigned to throw a recognition party for 250 employees working on a special project, I immediately thought of FreeStyle. I assumed they would draw many attendees already familiar with the group's upbeat sound. I received numerous thank-you's for having such a fun band. And it was clear they were having fun. Lead singer Ed Kelly even surprised us by 'Principalizing' some songs with company-relevant lyrics. I'd gladly book FreeStyle again... and again."
"...thanks again for the incredible job you did in playing for our wedding reception. Your sound, appearance, and entire performance were completely first-class, and our guests are still talking about how much fun it was. Thank you for making our reception truly memorable."

"We've heard band music at weddings that was so far out or quiet that people just drifted home early. FreeStyle pulled the crowd together with fun, classy tunes and really set the stage for fun. We kept them for an extra hour at the club because everyone was having so much fun. Our daughter Jenny still runs into friends who tell her they had a terrific time partying that night."
husband and I annually host a party for our friends and we always
call FreeStyle a year in advance to guarantee they can be there.
Their music adds just the right touch to
FreeStyle Rules! A band with their great sound and rhythm can't miss. For many years they have never failed to provide an ideal atmosphere for every occasion here at the Hyperion Club. We get pretty intimate here in our banquet room and their infectious humor and banter with the dance crowds are legendary. Corporate crowds usually book the next year's date on the spot. Party on!
"...Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful music at our reception. We appreciate all the special things you did...it was perfect! You were great to work with and you made it easy & worry-free. Thank you!"
& Michelle Rodemyer
"Thank you so much! Everyone RAVED about your band and music... you picked perfect dance songs for everyone to dance the night away. I appreciate all the help and support you gave John and I over the past year during the planning process and we couldn't have been happier with you guys! Thanks again!
Lindsey & John Mills
"They are a wonderful, versatile band and can play anything. People hear a smooth Sinatra tune and before they know it, a Van Morrison party tune gets everyone on their feet. Over the many years they've played here at the country club, I've seen them perform at everything from a private Christmas event to a Bar Mitzvah to our Club Invitational and everyone always leaves happy."
"Comments from a (Hotel) Savery bartender said it all -- 'I've been working weddings for eight years and this is the most fun I've ever had.' We agree. Your music was great -- excellent selections! You set and maintained just the right tone and spirit all evening. There were so many rave comments from our new family and friends about the music (we had a lot of visiting 'talent' -- so they
Many thanks for your part in making it a memorable night...."

"I just wanted to take a moment
to thank you and the rest of the group for your part in making Kelli
and Bill's day extraordinary! It takes a team effort to not only meet
but exceed the hearts' desires of a client and I'd gladly have you
on my team again ANYTIME! I have a great appreciation for flexibility
in vendors... thank you for yours."
