Overdrive Band Reviews


What Overdrive clients are saying about us

When a client books Overdrive for their event, our booking service sends them a link to provide a written review after the show. Since we started using this service in 2012, the band has recieved 100% five star reviews. I know that seems like it isn't possible, but it's what has happened. It's not by accident. We approach every single show and client with the intention of exceeding their expectations and earning that review.

Once Overdrive has performed for you, you will be asked to rate us from 1 star to 5 stars in six categories. These are:
Professionalism | Quality of Service | Ability to Handle Special Requests | Willingness to Recommend to a Friend | Musical Ability | Overall Satisfaction

There was a time when I listed every review the band recieved on the website. Today there are just too many to keep up with. All of them are five stars. A solid sampling of the reviews are below.

Private Club Event

Overdrive has performed for us five times now. We regularly have bands in to do shows and Overdrive is hands-down the very best. Not only is this band fantastic musically, but they are Sooo fun! They obviously all like each other. Their upbeat energy is infectious. The entire audience was caught up in the energy and fun. The dance floor was packed all night long. They mingle with the audience. They are friendly, social and accommodating. Whenever they come here, they turn the hall into a nightclub. They create this high energy, fun party experience for everyone. We’re always excited for the next time they can come play for us. Thank you Overdrive!

Corporate Convention

Wonderful, superb, fun, fantastic......just a few words to describe Overdrive. They were so easy to work with. I had a ton of questions and countless emails to them prior to the event, and they were great responding to all of my inquiries. Our guests had a blast with them and they played fun upbeat music that people could sing to at their table (for those too afraid to get up and dance), and of course dance to. They had great energy, showed up when they said and even stayed later than expected. It was a pleasure working with them and I would hire them again without hesitation! By far the best experience I've ever had with a live band for an event.

Charity Fundraiser

Overdrive was fantastic! Their music was lively, fun and enjoyed by all at our outdoor community event of over 600 people. As the event organizer what I was most impressed with was the band's professionalism at every step of the way. Daniel, the band's manager was accommodating and quickly responsive to questions. The band was punctual and efficient in setup/cleanup and flexible in managing hiccups (changing plans quickly when our stage wasn't going to work). They let us choose the songs, genre and style and seemed to have fun at the event. Would definitely hire again and recommend. Thank you Overdrive!

Pro stadium half time show

Overdrive was nothing short of heroic. We are a semi-pro sports franchise with limited resources, and because of them, were able to provide a full rock concert to hundreds of fans with ease. Their organization was a miracle. Several times in advance, I spoke and e-mailed with their manager. They expanded their setlist upon request the week of the show and met me at the venue to go over every detail. Day of, they completed all setup and sound check ahead of schedule without anyone from my organization lifting a finger. The show had fantastic vocals, guitar solos, and crowd engagement. We could not be happier with this band and would bring them back without hesitation.

50th Birthday Party

Small venue, 50th b-day. The band was prompt and reliable working with us. They visited the venue to plan their set up and set up/tore down quickly. As for the event, our theme was "decades of fun" - with people in attendance dressed from the 1920s to today - with a focus on the 80s. Boy did the band deliver! Song after song had us up dancing and singing along, reliving our youth! They performed three sets and kept the party going. We didn't make special requests - and their performance for the birthday 'girl' - "They say it's your birthday" "it's my birthday too" - was Perfect! We are trying to find an excuse for another costumed dance party with them.

Corporate Convention

This was a wonderful value. My first thought was: How can we hire a decent band for so little? The reality is: For a very modest sum we can pay 10 people to share a gift that they practice and obviously love! They coordinated with the hotel, showed up early and made sure that all was ready well in advance, they were ready to go 15 minutes early and performed like pros. I had zero involvement or worry once the select was made. The mix of songs was great. Everyone loved it. I would hire this band again at my first opportunity. Thank you, Overdrive Kirkland.

Summer Block Party

I can't say enough good things about Overdrive Kirkland. I speak for my husband and myself and all of our friends, family and neighbors when I say that they TOTALLY ROCKED our Summer Bash and Barbecue. They were professional, engaging and really, really excellent in their instrumentation and vocals. Even in 90 degree heat, they had us up and dancing and enjoying song after song. I think most of us were singing along with them more times than not. Thank you so very much Overdrive, for a most memorable event. As you can tell, we highly recommend them for any venue! Most Sincerely, Bob and Mary Spisak

Private Club Event

Overdrive played our St. Patrick's Day party last night. They were fantastic! We have bands play here & Overdrive may be the best band yet! Great musicians, amazing vocalists & great energy that kept the dance floor packed all night long. Today everyone is is still talking about how great the band was and asking when can we have them back? It was definitely a great time had by all! They setup the night before w/complete sound system, lights, cable covers, everything! We had some announcements to make & an Irish bagpipe playing songs between sets. Everyone in Overdrive was friendly & accommodating. We are looking forward to having them here again & again & again.

40th Birthday Party

They were over the top!!! I don't know where to begin. They were willing to do something a bit beyond normal. They played for my husband's 40th birthday, allowing him (as well as others) to get on stage and do an informal karaoke!! They were out on the floor dancing with us. They brought their own lights, a fantastic energy, and each band member was friendly and approachable. The band definitely took the celebration to the next level. Truly amazing!!

High School Dance

We had Overdrive down to play our Homecoming dance (at a local high school) this past Saturday night. They could not have been more positive, hard-working, and accommodating to our needs! Our students had a lot of requests and ideas on what the music should look like that night, and Daniel and the crew took in all in stride ~ even learning 8 new songs (yes 8!) for the younger more modern crowd. They play amazingly well together! The music sounded GREAT, and we are so appreciative of their time and efforts throughout the process. Thanks, guys. :)

Halloween Costume Party

We've had Overdrive for two years now at our Halloween party with ages varying from 21 to 85. Everybody loves them. They play great dance music and they're willing to cater to the audience on the type of music to play. With us it's Country and old Rock and Roll which is fantastic!!!!! We're having them again this year for 3 in row. Their show gets bigger and better every year. We can't wait for Halloween 2014! Trick or Treat, it's always a Treat with them!!!!!

Private Club Event

Overdrive is a great classic rock band! They are energetic, fun and kept our members dancing all night long! I have heard from everyone how much they loved the band. They brought in their own sound system, lights, etc. Very professional, very respectful and great to work with. Daniel, the band manager, is fantastic to work with. They have played for us twice now and we are looking forward to having them back again! Believe me, if you are looking for a band to play at your event, this is the band! Jim Weaver Commander – VFW

Corporate Event

Wow, Overdrive rocked the house! This band should be on tour. They put on a great show. All of their songs are great classic hits. They are amazing musicians and singers. Very professional. Everyone kept telling me that this is the band we should hire for every event. All we supply is a place to plug in and they bring everything. Disco, party lights, huge sound system, dedicated sound engineer. Really, really great. We will definitely hire them again.

40th Birthday Party

Wow, I can't even begin to describe how much I loved this band, and it was not only me, my entire party (40 or so) told me how much they enjoyed the music and the personalities of all the band members. They were super friendly and personable. They guitar guys looked hot playing guitar! and they were all fabulous singers! I can't give them enough praise. The best band I've ever seen at a private event, and I've been to lots of weddings. They were worth double the price I paid. If you hire them you will not be sorry and your friends will all want them to play at their parties too. From 1- 10 this band is an 11! Great covers of all my favorite, 70's, and 80's music. They even let me pick 6 or so songs to add to their sets. Everyone was sad when our 4 hours was up. We wanted them to play all night! Greatest birthday party ever, my neighbors were even listening from their yards.

Corporate Holiday Party

I browsed many third-party booking sites and made quite a few phone calls in search of the right band for our company year-end party. I couldn't have been happier with my choice. From the initial contact to event day, Overdrive Kirkland made the experience an absolute pleasure, there was no hassle at all. Daniel was always quick to respond and ready to answer any question I had. On the day of the party, they took care of EVERYTHING, from equipment to lighting to sound, leaving me with bandwidth to attend to everything else. Their music was great and brought people to the dance floor. They even provided live karaoke... added appeal! The cherry on top is their more than reasonable pricing, and they are worth every penny! I will be getting in touch with them again.

Private Club Event

Another great show from Overdrive! They played our Cinco de Mayo party last Saturday night. Every song was a crowd favorite. Our dance floor has never been packed like this. Happy people dancing and singing along. I can't count how many times I heard someone say 'I love this song' followed by 'Wow, the band is so good'. Overdrive totally rocks! They are fun! They are high energy! Everyone had a blast. Everyone wants them back!

Corporate Event

Overdrive was the perfect band for our corporate event. Polished, professional, fantastic! The manager came a week early to take a look at everything for setup. The band came in several hours before the event and setup a sound system, lights, everything. Wow, what a show! Their music is perfect for the age 35 to 60 crowd. Entertaining. Great musical ability. High energy. Everyone has been telling me how much they loved the band. We will definitely hire Overdrive again!

Wedding Reception

Incredible band. The vocals were great. The music selections created energy and excitement for the entire reception party. The band members worked the danced floor in a way. Daniel (manager) was very accommodating to our every need. The guests and (more importantly) my daughter (bride) commented that Overdrive made this special evening - magical.
