Testimonials

In over a decade of handling our calendar exclusively, Gregg Schmitt and TMW have never failed. We have never had a dark stage. Gregg instinctively knows what works best, and he always delivers. I would recommend Gregg and TMW to any venue that needs an honest, reliable agent to handle their bookings.

Well Gregg you did it again! Features Fest 2019 broke another record. While we did experience a problem with one of the artists and needed your advice, you were available and took the time needed to rectify the problem. I’m looking forward to working with you again next year. You’re the only guy bin this business I trust!

Mr. Brown indicated the entire rider was met and the band well taken care of on each night of this run of dates. Thank you.

Ben Bart
James Brown’s Manager

This is a note to thank you so much for your suggestions for our festival this year. Music is such a huge portion of our event and year after year your suggestions and recommendations are right on the money. We could not be more pleased with the service Gregg and TMW provide.

I’m pleased to say I’ve worked with Gregg Schmitt and The Music Works for nearly two decades. Booking agents often get a bad rap. Not in Gregg’s case. He’s built his reputation through hard work and perseverance. I’m convinced, there’s no agent in the Twin Cities who works harder, for his bands.

Jonah & The Whales

We did great with Blackhawk! We sold over 1300 tickets. That was a good number for us. We had the perfect weather and the show went off without any issues. Our beer sales broke the record for a single night.

Branded was a great fit with Blackhawk. You were spot on recommending this combination for our fair!

It is so nice to be able to use someone like you that cares about our success, has the experience you do and we can trust.

Thank you Gregg. We’ll be in touch shortly for our headliner next year.

 

Emily-Houston County Fair 2019

Thanks Gregg for bringing in Ledfoot Larry. We really enjoyed them. They are a very tight band, they did a great job and I received tons of compliments on them!

Jonah & the Whales did awesome! The weather didn’t cooperate, but the band sure did. We had to move the event inside. The band was just great to work with!

Rhoda
Partacular 2017

They were great performers and lovely people. We were very happy with their rendition of “Amazing Grace!” The rest of their country tunes were awesome. Thank you for all your help Gregg. My mom’s Celebration of Life was everything we hoped it would be.

When Gregg produces one of our shows I know it will be done right.

Gregg Schmitt of The Music Works is the only agent I deal with that when he tells me what a band is it is exactly what shows up on stage. I trust him.

I have played in Music Works exclusive bands for over 2 decades. For the past several years I have run my own band with all bookings handled by The Music Works. I have always found working with the Music Works’ personnel to be at the highest level of professionalism. All communications have been respectful, honest, and straight to the point. I have benefited greatly and truly enjoy working with the Music Works.

The entire party was a success. And, as for working with your company, I appreciated your flexibility, quick turn around and willingness to do research according to my client’s needs.

“The bands once again this year were great, as has been the case for over 10 years using exclusively bands from The Music Works. We will be having a wrap-up meeting at the end of this month and then I am sure I will be in touch for next year! Thanks again, always love working with you!”

Haley - Mall of America 2018

Thank you for working with us reviving our event this year. We appreciate all your help and your professionalism. The After Hours Band drew more people than we’ve had in years. We will continue to use The Music Works in the future.

Tom
Milltown Community Days 2019

When I called Gregg, the band that I had been counting on had just canceled due to some big change-ups in their band. This was maybe 2 weeks before our event! Gregg was able to fill the date. Not only that, they did it for a reasonable price, showed up early, and put on one of the best performances I have ever heard a cover band do. They are outstanding musicians, for sure, but they’ve really got the vocals covered too. It was an awesome time and we will definitely be inviting these guys back!

Wes Ovre
Owner Morton Pub

Eight years ago (2009) we were looking for some national acts to play an outdoor show. We had a pretty small budget and never thought we could do it. Working with Gregg at TMW brought what we could have only imagined a reality! We started with crowds around 500 and now we have crowds upwards of 2,200!! Gregg worked within our budget to get the best possible routing dates and he knocked it out of the park! Eight years is a long time to get to know somebody. I trust Gregg and wouldn’t think of working with any other agency other than TMW!

If I were a lady I would actually ask Gregg to marry me! That’s how much I trust him.(Ha Ha Ha)

“Charlie Daniels informed me they had a GREAT experience working with you at the festival this year. I can always expect if you are involved my artists will be well taken care of.

Ray Shelide

I book various corporate clients and festivals including the Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Vikings, and Canterbury Park Racetrack. Often I have specific “types” of bands needed for the public promotions they create. I can always trust a candid and professional band suggestion from Gregg and The Music Works’ office. The bands are always spot on with their professional attitude, equipment, and delivery.

Thank you for operating a high-quality band agency to serve our needs.

You know Gregg, whenever I work with you everything is done right-you are the best out there and have been for many, many years. I just wish you would book more of my calendar!

Your entire staff was great to work with….from one end of the spectrum to the other. Thanks for being part of our celebration!

I truly enjoy working with you year after year and look for many more years to come!

Sheila
Strawberry Fest 2018

The best thing about working with The Music Works as opposed to booking a band directly is if the band were to break up an agency always has options for us, and we’re not on our own scrambling to find a replacement. As we had to this year. We should have, and will, work with you in the future for ALL of our entertainment needs.

Gregg-you’re the best!

Gregg, I love you, you’re a good, good man.

I really appreciate the attention from Gregg and the TMW staff. My only regret is we won’t get a chance to work with TMW again until next year!
