Silhouettes of the Crowds


Had Crossfire perform at our wedding reception, and they were BRILLIANT!!! They had the place rocking from start to finish with all ages dancing. They took the time to learn specific songs beforehand, requested by us, which they didn't know. They communicated very well with us before the wedding and catered to the setting and audience very well. They made a great night even better. We were pleased with their flexibility and enthusiasm for our day. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a fun evening. Thanks to Ralph and all the guys!


Thank you for such an awesome night! We must have gotten at least 20 comments that this was the best band at a wedding they'd ever heard. You did a phenomenal job, and we are so grateful.

We had a great time! Thank you so much,

Juliana and Damien

(wedding reception in Kenyon, MN)


The Crossfire Band was absolutely terrific. They made our wedding a huge success. I can't say enough good things about their performance and their talent. We had 20 year olds and 90 year olds that were dancing all night. Talk about 4 great guys that made our wedding one of the most fun times that our guests have experienced in years. The music selections were both modern and reflective. Ralph was so easy to work with, and very accommodating to all of our requests both before the date and all the last minute details. We even had the groom sit in as the drummer for a couple of songs that was most entertaining. Book them now to make any music venue a success.

Every guest and I mean every guest, had only the highest praise for your performance. You made the wedding what it was. Without your stellar performance, it would have been just an ordinary wedding, but you made it extraordinary. Thank you so much. We ALL had a great time.

We wanted to write and thank you for the wonderful job your band did playing at our daughter and son-in-law's wedding reception. We all had a fantastic time.


It was exactly the kind of evening we were hoping for. People kept dancing the whole night long. From the five year old flower girl to the eighty-three year old grandmother, you provided fun for everyone. Many of our family and friends told us you were the best wedding band they had heard in a long time.


We loved the variety of songs and your willingness to take requests. There were a couple of times when you said you didn't know a song and then before too long you surprised us by either playing it or incorporating it into a medley.


You did a great job of keeping everyone involved as you moved around the reception hall as you performed. And it was a great treat for the groom when you invited him to sing along with the band on his favorite song!


Thank you also for being available for the entire evening even before the official start of the dancing. Being the MC for the evening by introducing the couple and their wedding party and the special events such as the cake cutting was very much appreciated.


We plan on recommending your band to anyone we hear of who is planning a special event and would like to have a band.


The bride and groom thought it was the most perfect wedding and reception ever. What more could we ask for? We want to thank you again for helping to make that happen.

Every member of the Crossfire band is finely tuned and full of talent. We could not have asked for anything better, they over exceeded all our expectations!


They really know how to get a crowd going from ages 8 to 88! Our feedback from our guests was all A+ but needed not to be said just because of the expressions on their face when they were dancing all night!

We can't express our happiness enough!! Crossfire rules!!!!


(Ryan J, wedding reception in Owatonna,MN)


Hi, Ralph- we had such a nice time at our wedding dance! Thank you for making it fun! We had numerous people say how much fun they were having and ask, "Where did you find this band?"

Music selection – we appreciated you playing our requests as well as responding to what people seemed to want to hear.

Assistance with scheduled activities and announcements – perfect. We weren't quite sure how to run the speeches and dollar dance – you gave us suggestions and then took the lead when it came time for it.


Professionalism of the musicians – very good. Good interaction with the crowd – funny yet professional and enthusiastic.


Musicians attire – perfect –

Other Comments – Your band plays with energy and heart and that translated to our guests having a great time!


Thank you!

They were totally accommodating to all our requests. They were friendly, energetic and kept all the guests dancing throughout the evening.

They went an extra mile in playing extra time for us.

Thanks again for making our evening enjoyable and unforgettable.

This band did an awesome job! We had age range from 2 to 85 and everyone was having a great time. They were very open to music we wanted and asked if volume and such was ok during the breaks. They were dressed very nicely and it was neat how they went into the guests and played.

Everyone I talked to had a wonderful time and there were a lot of people dancing.

Thank you so much.


(Jodi K, wedding reception at the Owatonna Country Club)


Thank you for your great contribution in making our party enjoyable for all.

You were great; we had many favorable comments from my guests!

Thanks, everyone had a blast!

The music selection was great, it helps lining it up before hand.

The bands assistance with scheduled activities and announcements was good.

I would recommend Crossfire to my friends or relatives for sure.

Thanks again,

Thanks again for playing at my Birthday---you guys were awesome and everybody commented on the great music!!!

You're all the greatest and we hope to see you guys soon!!


(Mary Lou's birthday party at the Knights of Columbus in Bloomington)


We really enjoyed having Crossfire Band at our reception. We were extremely happy with how everything turned out and had a fabulous time! We had many great comments from guests regarding the band. The only thing I would change is that many guests commented that the band should display their name because they wanted to know who they were!


The band was very accommodating with special requests and interactive with the guests without being cheesy! Great band! We highly recommend!


(Kristine and Zachary's wedding reception in Albany,MN)


We thought the Crossfire Band did a wonderful job. The music sounded great. They are very talented and interacted well with the crowd. It was great to see so many of our guests on the dance floor. The band was also very organized and had all the equipment set up in advance of the ceremony and reception. 


Rebecca L. (wedding reception at the Landmark Center)


Ralph and the rest of the band were fantastic at Wayne's retirement party! They delivered on everything they advertised! I think Crossfire is one of Minnesota's finest bands, not only from a musical perspective, but they are simply really good people! I would recommend them to anyone! Thanks Ralph and the rest of the Crossfire band for an exceptional performance Friday night! P.S. Thanks for letting me play the drums! I had a blast!


I wanted to take a moment to say “Thank You” for an outstanding job Friday evening. I liked how the band members came to the crowd and interacted with the audience. You guys have a lot of talent and musical abilities! I have heard nothing but compliments today surrounding your performance. Thanks for being everything you advertised to be…..Also – thanks for letting David sit in on a few of your tunes. I really loaded him up with the song “Wipeout” but he rose to the occasion. He too had a great evening!


(Retirement party at the Best Western Hotel in Mankato)


Ralph and the band were awesome!! Our guests raved about them!! They learned a couple of new songs for us. They kept the dance floor busy all night! The communication before the wedding was awesome! Highly recommend them and hopefully going to be hiring them for our son's wedding. Thank you so much for the great evening of entertainment Ralph and the rest of the band!!! Pat & Kris


(wedding reception at Rockwoods in Otsego, MN


The wedding guests really enjoyed the band. They also played at my daughters wedding so the guests were happy to see them again at our wedding. They are very polite and professional and I have nothing but good things to say about this band. I would definitely hire them again.

What a great group of guys. You definitely compliment each other. We've had many comments on how good the music was and the selections you played. Thanks for making our day a little more special.

(wedding reception at Jax Cafe in Northeast Minneapolis)


Crossfire was amazing to say the least! From the very beginning when my husband and I were trying to find a band for our wedding, we went to see them perform, and they were very friendly and even sat down to speak with us on one of their music breaks. Once we hired Crossfire to play at our wedding, their communication response time to our questions, etc. was prompt, and they were very easy to work with! We had compliments all night from our guests on how they thought the band was great! Crossfire learned several new songs just for us, and one of those was our first dance song - Loved it! The bottom line is this...I would hire them in a heartbeat!!!!

(wedding reception at the Legends Golf Club in Prior Lake)


Thank you, Ralph, and the rest of the band, for creating such a fun and up beat atmosphere! The music definitely made the event so successful!


We were putting on a unique event for a large group of college students, and the Crossfire band definitely made the event successful! They kept the crowd entertained by offering a wide variety of oldies and classics that kept everyone dancing. I would recommend the Crossfire band to anyone who wants an upbeat, fun, and energetic band that won't disappoint!

(private party at the DS Event Center in St. Paul)


Very satisfied. Early in the planning stages we had decided that live entertainment was important to us. We knew our guests would enjoy live music.  The price was, in our opinion, fair as compared to other live performers and certainly in comparison to a DJ. Upon completion of the evening, I think there was a lot of value to the price and what we (bride and groom), the families, and guests got in return.  I have no doubt the live performance got a group of non-dancers (the majority of my family and Amanda's) on to the floor, which was incredible.  It truly was a party and a celebration.  I enjoyed that the musicians moved around the floor.  Awesome.


I thought the band was professional. Your attire was appropriate. Your equipment was appropriate.  


I thought the communication via email was appropriate.  Not all couples may want this form of communication, but your responses were prompt.  Mine were not always.  You did provide a phone number in the event we wanted to talk. I would recommend Crossfire to another couple.


We got EXACTLY what we wanted and what we paid for.  I was satisfied with the performance, it’s obvious you guys love what you do and it definitely shows and makes for a great experience.  


Thank you.

(wedding reception at the Garden Room in Eden Prairie)


We booked the Crossfire Variety Band to play for our wedding reception and felt extremely satisfied with our selection. Ralph made our planning very easy, offering the opportunity to schedule the songs for the night. We instead gave our general musical tastes and requested that they play to the crowd. These guys are very professional; it was a big stress reliever to not have to worry about music as we made our other plans and arrangements for the big day! They were a hit for all of our guests, and played guest requests on the fly! We received many compliments from our guests on our band choice and felt very proud on our wedding day.


Thanks for the very nice show Crossfire!

Ralph - Thank you for a great performance at our Holiday party.  I have gotten many great comments about how much people enjoyed it. 




(AMEC company party at the Earle Brown Heritage Center in Brooklyn Center)


We hired Crossfire for our wedding, they did a fabulous job. We had people of all generations dancing the night away. I highly recommend them if you love everything from classic rock to country.


Jean Anne and Doug Schuur


 (wedding reception at Rockwoods in Otsego,MN)


You guys did great. You have a great ability to read the crowd and keep everyone on the dance floor. A lot of the guests told me this is one of the few MN weddings they've been to where everybody was dancing. Not sure if Robyn talked to you afterwards, but the coordinator of the venue mentioned that she would like to recommend you in the future there as well.

Thanks for all of your help, it added a lot to make a great evening.

(wedding reception at Paradise Landing in Balsam Lake, WI)


Hey Ralph,


You guys were fantastic! I have not seen some of my cousins dancing like that for a very long time. Everybody seemed to appreciate the live band and all of your showmanship.


You even drew in a couple (polite) wedding crashers from the scrapbooking club upstairs who were wanting to dance.


It was great of you to play an extra song too, since so many people spent the night at the lodge and were able to stick it out until the end.


The playlist was perfect, and as you could see, polkas go over very well in that region of Wisconsin.


We appreciated the volume turn down a little since that space and those wooden walls reverberated a lot of sound. It was perfect.


I am happy you were willing to travel all the way up there as it was pretty difficult to find a band able to do that. The Lodge provided a list of local vendors for us, but only DJs are currently on it. A good live band is always better.


Thanks for providing us a great performance and show.




(wedding reception at The Lodge at Crooked Lake in Siren, WI)


Crossfire was a great band to have! We had Crossfire for our shed wedding reception and it was a blast! They played a great mix of the wedding classic's and classic rock'n'roll with a jazz twist- which everyone loved! Our dance floor was packed the entire night with family and friends! I would recommend Crossfire to anyone! :)

Thank you so much, Ralph! The Crossfire Band was amazing! We've heard from several attendees that they really liked the music and the band. The crowd engagement was key and it really helped to pull our event together. Great job. Please send our thanks to the rest of the band members and lets stay in touch!

Everyone had a great time and was still talking about it the next day. It was a very enjoyable evening. Thanks for putting on a good show for the guests!


Just wanted to let you know Pat and I received many compliments about having such a great band for the grooms party.  You guys sounded so good and were so easy to deal with.  I honestly want to have another party just to have you back! Thank you so much for making that night extra special.
