Merimac rocked the house last night – they were a huge hit!! It was really great working with you guys.

You wouldn’t believe how many compliments we got on the band, they were fantastic.

Received July24rd 2014 from Trenton FunFest

I thought the band was fantastic! Everyone seemed to be enjoying the music. Always a hit.  I was lucky enough to have a chance to actually stand out front and watch them for a few tunes. Very talented group of guys! You’ll be at the top of my list to recommend for future events in or out of the park.

I’ve forwarded your email to the chair and treasurer. They’ve had only positive things to say about Merimac.

“Thank you guys so much for playing at our wedding reception.  I couldn’t get over how many people immediately went to the dance floor as soon as you guys came on.  It made the night even better than we could have imagined.  Everyone who was there said you guys were awesome and you did a really great job engaging the crowd!

Looking forward to seeing you at my cousin’s wedding in two weeks!  All the best, Candace & Andrew

Hey you! 

Well I guess you guys could have dressed in tuxes or stark naked (!) on Saturday, and it wouldn't have mattered as the reviews are pouring in and well let's just say, YOU ROCKED!!!  (yes pun intended :))!

The only thing I will worry about now is if we CAN'T book you for next year!! 
Can we do that now? For our 8th Annual Swing Into Spring Gala! 

 I look forward to hearing back from you soon and thank you again for a wonderful evening, Eddie!

Hello everyone:
I just wanted to thank all of you for your support of the Hanlon's 2nd annual St. Patrick's Day party.  We had a wonderful evening with friends and family (about 65 people) and at the same time we were able to raise approximately $3400.00 for Phoenix Youth Programs.  This would not have been possible without the help of so many generous people...those who donated items for the silent auction, bid on these same items or made out right donations...we thank you all.  To our kitchen help, Fran and Geoff, our bartender Neil and the band Merimac you made a great contribution to the smoothness of the evening.  Thank you.  It was nice from our point of view to be able to mingle and talk to folks instead of tending bar and kitchen...and believe me, you wouldn't have wanted to hear either one of us sing!!
Hope to see you all at next years event!

Hi Neil,

I just wanted to let you know how really pleased we were with the band, Merimac,  at Krista and Jeff's wedding.  They did an absolutely tremendous job of getting everyone up dancing and having fun.  We had lots of guests remark on how great the band was and Krista and Jeff thought they were fantastic.  So please pass along our thanks to Eddie and the rest of the band.....they really made the wedding a great party and without them it wouldn't have been the same!

Thanks again!

I just wanted to pass along to the guys in the band that they did an incredible job at our wedding in Moncton on August 1st. We had an amazing  night and the band did an fantastic job of entertaining and keeping everyone on the dance floor. We got so many compliments from our guests about how great the band was. It really made our night and we appreciate how great of a job that did on such a big day for us. Even people who never danced commented on how much they enjoyed the band, including grandparents.

 If you ever have someone thinking about hiring Merimac vs. a DJ for their wedding, just tell them to email me and I’ll explain to them how much fun we had and how it made our night. We have absolutely no regrets.

Thanks for everything.

Hey, I just wanted to say that the Band was fantastic in Trenton on the weekend.
We've actually been following Merimac around Nova Scotia for about 2 years now

 and every concert is a blast and every concert is different.
And I also want to give a Kudo's to the band for taking the time when the concert was over
 to get a quick picture with my niece.
She also had a blast dancing and thought it was the best thing ever to be asked on stage to dance
 while the band played...she's still bragging!!

Hi Neil,

Merimac has a very good reputation I'm sure you're aware of.  In fact, the brother of a friend of mine is a Halifax radio personality and he said you'd be great...  Makes our lack of luck (in not being able to book with Merimac), more painful... but happy that a good band like yours is getting the recognition it deserves.

Take care and all the best,

Good morning,

I just wanted to say thank you for such a great show last night! I met a few co-workers in the elevator & lobby this morning and the first comment from all were how fantastic the band was. And Cory (the guy who asked you if Scott could play the drums) already asked me to inquire about next year... But I told him you guys would probably be touring the country by then and might be too big to do our little corporate party!

Take care,

Eddie, We had an awesome time!  Everyone was raving about the band.  The energy you folks put into the songs is contagious.  I don't imagine there are any other bands of your caliber in the area who actually take the time to try to learn some new songs just to satisfy the tastes and requests of the persons hiring you folks.  I think that alone sets you guys apart.  We really appreciate all you did to make our wedding day (2nd time around for each of us!) a fantastic experience.  We also really appreciated the effort you put into varying your set list to meet the tastes of all generations.  Everyone had a great time; thanks for starting early as we requested (we knew the out of towners and older relatives might want to leave early).  We will certainly come check you out again anytime you're in the area and we can break free from the family (we have 4 teenaged girls now in the house!!)

Hi Eddie,


Thank you for the great performance at our wedding.  The band was fabulous.

We couldn't have asked for better.  Everyone had a really good time and people kept asking me how we found you guys.  Even the older ones kept saying how happy they were to see you playing some music from their generation.  We had more compliments on the band then on anything else.


It was Franck who really pushed to have a band at the wedding and I'm so glad he did.  It really made the atmosphere great at the reception.


Franck and I would be more than happy for you to use us as a reference anytime.


All the best with future performances.

Received Aug. 31st, '07 from Wedding in NS.  (Comment of "Heavy Metal" is a joke)

For a Heavy Metal band from Halifax, you guys sure did it right.  The music was fantastic.  I do believe the dance floor was never empty and the cry of "Sociable" is now heard throughout the states thanks to you.  The reviews were universally fantastic, including the neighbors who got the benefit of a free concert. 

Again, thank you for everything.  I hope you had as much fun playing as we did dancing and listening.

Please put me on your mailing list and my girl and I would love to see you play again, perhaps next summer when we are back North to visit family.

Received Oct. 18th,05 via E-mail from wedding played in Pennsylvania, US on Oct 8th,05.


I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you once again for traveling down to Pennsylvania to play at our wedding. It was only fitting that Merimac play at our wedding since you guys were Natalie's first exposure to Maritime music during her first visit home with me to PEI three years ago. You guys were amazing, everyone in attendance was raving about what a great time they had. I knew our guests that traveled from the Maritimes and all over the US would not be disappointed, especially since you played all of our Maritime favorites including 'The Night Patty Murphy Died', 'Sonny's Dream', 'Home For A Rest' and of course 'Old Black Rum'(3 times) and that is only to name a few. I can't tell you how many of our American guests were walking around the days following the wedding raising their glasses and shouting 'SOCIABLE', you certainly have a new following in the Eastern United States. I also want to thank you for learning our wedding song on such short notice, my Mom was also very pleased with your rendition of her Anne Murray favorite 'Could I Have This Dance' for our mother/son dance, nice job on the vocals.

Here are some quotes from a few of the emails I received from those in attendance......

"Jack and cokes with no ice and no coke and Patty Murphy, I felt like I was at the Lower Deck"
'"That band rocked, best time I have had in so long, that type of music is so much fun to dance and party to, I want to do it every weekend, when are we going to Canada?"
"What a phenomenal night, I think that old black rum still has a hold on me and the dog continues to be wrapped around my leg"
"Saturday was stupid fun. One of the better weddings I ever attended, so awesome that the band let us sing with them"
"I am really pissed I missed your wedding. the boys have been talking it up all week, all they talk about is how great the band was."

Thanks again for being a part of our special day, we are extremely grateful and you guys are true professionals. We hope to see you next time we are home in PEI or over in Halifax.

Hey Eddie,

We're back from Vegas safe & sound and back to reality! The reception was AWESOME and I lost track of how many people commented on how good you guys were, but I can surely say that it was A LOT.

I fully suspect you'll be hearing from some of our guests to book you for their events! thanks also for playing "ONE MORE SONG! ONE MORE SONG!" long after the lights came on, and for being such good sports about having special guests (aka tambourine experts) up on the stage with you. it was the true maritime party we were hoping for.

I will email you some pics next week. there are lots of good ones from the disposable cameras but they are not of the best quality.

I would most certainly recommend you guys to anyone.  The pictures we have so far from the reception tell the story pretty well...not the most "attractive" pictures, but by God people look like they are having fun!  (see attached!)  You guys had a lot to do with that!  Can't thank you enough!! 
Hope to see you play again when we get back to Halifax.

After visiting your site and listening to some of the samples and speaking with some of my colleagues, the band came highly recommended.  A little apprehensive, buying 'sight unseen', I was completely thrilled with the outcome of the evening in Atlanta, Georgia.

Ninety percent of the audience (750+) were Americans and they simply didn't want you to stop - 2 ½ hours of straight playing, did you guys in, I don't think you had any more in you...but they wanted more.

In the future, whether it's an event I'm responsible for or assisting with, I will always recommend Merimac as the band of choice.  The music you chose for our American networking event was well rounded with Maritime tradition, Classic & Pop Rock.  You definitely know how to play to the crowd.

Good Morning,

I just wanted to thank you for providing such fantastic entertainment at our wedding on Saturday.  We really had a fantastic time (could you tell?) and several people have told us it was the most fun they have had at a wedding.  Thank you again for allowing our friends to participate up on stage and for being so accommodating.  If you are ever in Maine or Boston let us know and we’ll bring a crowd for you!

Take care,

Dear John,

    I wanted to thank you for providing a great band for our Christmas party.  After several bad experiences, we were thrilled with Merimac.  The songs were well chosen, and everyone had a great time dancing.  Be sure to thank the band on our behalf.  They will be our first choice for our next event!
