You guys were amazing! Thank you for setting the tone and making our wedding celebration a night we will always remember. Your performance of ‘God Gave Me You’ for our first dance brought tears to our eyes. We felt like Blake Shelton was right there on stage for us.
— Amanda & Richard, bride & groom (April 2015)
I am wearing my Pickleback Shine T shirt as I type. You were everything and more for our event! You truly are the talk of the town. We will be doing this as an annual event to celebrate our work, and will be at the J&J Ranch again. Once I figure out a date I will be booking you again. I absolutely love your sound and I play you on my computer. Please come back next year!
— Christine, Coachella Valley Pet Rescue Center (March 2015)
Thank you so much for such great entertainment Saturday night. Wow! You guys were amazing! I can’t tell you how many compliments, texts, and e-mails we have received about how awesome you all were!
— Jo Anna S., surprise 50th birthday party (March 2015)
First of all, everyone raved about you guys. Just the other day I got a card in the mail from one of my Mom’s friends who attended the wedding. In it her husband wrote that he “loved the concert.” (He’s about 70 years old!) My niece, who is 9, can’t stop talking about the band either. Looks like you guys appeal to a very large audience!

My favorite part was watching you guys perform on that stage. The lighting, the backdrop, the way you guys were dressed, all added to the ambience of the night. You guys nailed the music. At one point I thought you were playing a CD. The dance floor was rocking! Everyone really enjoyed the line dance instructor - she is very talented. Evelyn (my mother-in-law) even learned some new dance steps! I really enjoyed the songs you performed for our first dance and father-daughter dance. You hit the nail on the head!

All-in-all, this was our dream wedding!! We put forth a lot of work and attention to detail to make it the night of our lives! The music was one of my top priorities and you guys exceeded my expectations! If I ever need live entertainment again, I’m calling you!
— Stephanie, the bride (November 2014)
All of us at Green Hill’s are now 100% huge fans of Pickleback Shine! You guys played everything great! I am still getting incredible feedback from our staff and guests about your performance. We hope you’ll join us next October for our 2015 Harvest Festival where we expect as many as 3000 people to attend. Many thanks!
— Robert McNerney, Operations Officer (October 2014)
Pickleback Shine was fantastic! Lupita (from Knott’s Berry Farm) and I looked at each other and at the same time said “OMG – they’re really good!!” I’m a big fan of the Wagon Camp – it’s a great amphitheater. We estimated that you had 200-225 people per set. Lupita said it was more. She would know. As far as Knott’s is concerned it was a total success! It was Lupita’s idea to close the gap between the Texaco Country Showdown activities. She was right on target - that there would be a great turnout and was blown away with your band’s talent. I thought your entire band was upbeat, friendly and very talented. You looked like you all were having as much fun as our listeners – particularly those who danced and sang along. I wouldn’t hesitate to use you again – although, I suspect that you will be so popular, we won’t be able to afford you!
— Linda Sanchez, Go Country 105 (September 2014)
Thank you so much for performing last weekend! We all had a blast and everyone really enjoyed the band. We will definitely keep Pickleback Shine in mind for any future performance opportunities. Thanks again and hope to see you soon!
— Meghan Jones, Knott’s Berry Farm (September 2014)
Pickleback Shine was just amazing! Truly, you made our community event a success. I look forward to working with you again and will pass your name on to my counter parts in other communities.
— Julie Crandall, RanchLife Events and Activities Manager (August 2014)
Stefani Rose and Pickleback Shine were great tonight! Stefani is a great performer and song writer and the band rocked. I loved how you guys mashed up Blake Shelton’s ‘Boys Round Here’ with songs from Sublime and Kacey Musgraves. That was very cool! You guys are always welcome back to Raleigh and the Pour House Music Hall.
— Jac Cain, Pour House (August 2014)
Thank you so much for a great show! This was the event of the year at Coto! This is going to be the talk of the town for a while. I am a country fan so I knew and loved everything you guys played! We always end our concerts right at 10pm but Saturday’s show lasted about 20 minutes longer because of encores. Lots of compliments about the band on how they interacted with the crowd. I think that special touch really makes the event more fun for the audience. We look forward to having PbS back at Coto in the future!
— Kristen Greenough, Coto de Caza Country Club (August 2014)
It was a joy to have Pickleback Shine perform for my daughter’s wedding. We would recommend you for sure and hope you guys and gals continue to have a good time doing what you do. You guys really made a great day even better!
— Mike Armstrong, father of the bride (May 2014)
Just wanted to say thank you for doing an awesome show at the wedding. Being a former sales manager for Sam Ash and a drummer, it was insanely refreshing to see good QSC speakers, quality instruments and awesome band members. My daughter was the curly haired ‘tambourine player.’ I totally blew it while filming it as I had the camera sideways. I was smiling too much to think about the camera!

P.S. Always play Compass uptempo how you did. That is probably the only song you played that I didn’t know before last night. I liked your version better than the original!
— Jeff Leko, Guest, Cooley Wedding (May 2014)
I wanted to drop you a note to express my sincere appreciation for the job you all did at the party. The band was MORE than amazing! Everyone I talked to had praise for the presentation, sound and enthusiasm. Thank you and the band so much for agreeing to play and perform – you made the night!
— Keith Bremer, 50th Birthday Party at the Red Rock Hotel (May 2014)
We wanted to send a great big thanks your way for helping to make the Walk to End Epilepsy at the Rose Bowl a huge success this year and for keeping the crowd of almost 4000 people energized! We were so happy to have Pickleback Shine a part of the 2013 event this year. Thank you for being so flexible with our last minute run of show changes and for rolling with the flow on-site. Everyone was really happy and we heard great feedback on the band’s performance!!
— Erin, Sterling Social Events and Experiences (November 2013)
You met and EXCEEDED all expectations! You and the band were amazing. Heard many great compliments and are still hearing them. We’d absolutely love to work with you in the future and will be in touch about future opportunities.
— Cheri Bazley, Executive Director, Long Beach Ronald McDonald House (September 2013)
We were EXTREMELY happy with your service and performance. Everyone loved you!. We hope to work with Pickleback Shine again in the future.
— J. Van Winkle, Recreation Coordinator, Riverside County Regional Park and Open-Space District (September 2013)
Pickleback Shine was unbelievable! Dan, the band manager and drummer, is extremely professional, helpful, and a great communicator. We always felt like we hired the BEST band even before the event. The group arrived on time, quickly set up, did a great sound check, and were ready to start the party on time. All the guys and girls in the band are friendly and fun to be around. We felt like they were our friends... They played for 4 hours with a couple of breaks. We loved every song they played. Everyone was dancing and telling us how much they loved the band. They made our event GREAT! The surprise proposal was pretty unforgettable too! We can’t thank them enough!
— Debbie Andrade, San Pedro (August 2013)
Everytime, and I mean everytime, these guys play at our wine bar - we sell out and they rock the house!
— Mitchell Schroeder, General Manager, Amazing Grapes Wine Store (August 2013)
We’ve had the pleasure of Pickleback Shine play at both our Back Bay Bistro and at our 4th of July event two years in a row! Great band that got great reviews from our crowds!
— Andrew Theodoro, General Manager, Newport Dunes (July 2013)
It was great having you play for us at RanchoFest and are hoping you’ll join us for RocktoberFest October 26th 2013!
— Susan Singh, President, RSM Chamber of Commerce (July 2013)
I just wanted to let you know that having the band at my party made it amazing. Everyone had so much fun, and the band was a hit. I’ve had so many people ask about the band since the party. They want to come see you guys play!
— Terri B., Director of Campus Initiatives, FACT Alliance (June 2013)
Just have to say... our client on Saturday LOVED you guys! Thanks for being so wonderful to work with, there will most certainly be more gigs coming your way!
— Sarah G., Malibu Conference Center at Cal Amigos Ranch (June 2013)
I am excited to tell you that the entire staff was very pleased with Pickleback Shine! They enjoyed the song selections and were even more impressed with the talents of the band. I personally enjoyed the harmonies as well as the lead singers. So, please know that if our future events call for a Country band – Pickleback Shine will be the first invited!
— Gina D., The Rock Church, San Bernardino (June 2013)
