"Quotes and Reviews"

Maurice the Fish was the PERFECT addition to our evening. They were a pleasure to work with from day one and extremely professional. The tone they set for the military ball was fun, exciting, and celebratory... everything that we asked. My only complaint is that their music was SO good we had some people doing "the Robot" on the dance floor. Literally everyone was dancing! Thanks again to Maurice the Fish for a wonderful event!

Maurice was accomodating, easy to work with, talented, and very professional. Ray Hayden provided piano music for our wedding ceremony, starting with his own amazing work, and even attended our rehearsal! At our reception, the band was incredibly interactive with the guests, coming down into the crowd to play blazing guitar riffs and do the "power slide" with the kids! They brought vibrant energy and excitement to our party, and really made the evening! They even let our son play guitar onstage and be a rockstar for a few minutes! They even invited guest vocalists from the audience! They were amazing and we highly recommend them for any event!

We are looking forward to having Maurice The Fish come back for many years to come. We hired them to rock out our end of the season Fishermans Party and that is exactly what they did. This was a party that our community will be talking about for some time and we as a staff are very satisfied with our decision to hire Maurice The Fish!!

I was blown away by how personally involved Maurice the Fish was in helping us to set up our wedding! It truly was above and beyond anything I coul dhave expected or hoped for. They even learned the song I wanted to have for our parents' dance. The music was amazing and got everyone out dancing and having a great time, even past our cut-off point! Thank you for bringing the soul to the party! AMAZING!

The band was absoslutely amazing! They were fun and engaging and if only 6 people were on the dance floor you would have thought they were performing for 6,000- their energy was just that good!

Maurice the Fish performed at our destination wedding in Kelowna, BC in September. The band was our number one priority and we were not disappointed. We had never heard them in person but Julianna was wonderful and so accomindating to our needs. They even learned our first dance song and traveled 8 hours to our event. We couldn't have asked for more. Everyone was on their feet dancing from the moment after our first dance until midnight. Perfect! Hire Maurice the Fish!

Everyone loved them! Everyone came up to us and said, where did you find this band? They're great! They made the 50th Anniversary of our organization a truly special event.

These guys were amazing. They were easy to communicate with and were very helpful with making sure everything would work the way we wanted it. They totally rocked our wedding reception. They played guitar for the wedding ceremony as well and it was absolutely perfect. Our guests were very impressed and we were too! Thank you so much Maurice the Fish!

Let me describe my experience this way: Maurice the Fish is exceptional. Firstly, Julianna is an excellent communicator, which is an important factor. Next. There is the attention to detail. Done. Next. The band and support staff are totally accommodating. They are responsive to your needs. They care. They are flexible. They improvise. They are truly awesome. They deserve your business. Oh, did I mention they are all extremely talented and versatile? Any questions?

Julianna and Maurice the Fish were an absolute pleasure to work with! Their upbeat performance helped created a lighthearted and fun atmosphere for everyone that attended the MS Walk in Seattle. They were extremely accomodating and flexible...very easy to work with. We would love to have Maurice the Fish be a part of the MS Walk again in the future!

Great energy and interaction with the crowd - at one point they gave out musical instruments (wooden sticks, bell, etc) so we could be involved with the music. Good choice of songs - upbeat & fun; made you want to get up and dance. Skilled/quality musicians - knew their stuff and obviously enjoy what they do. They were fantastic to work with; extremely professional and accommodating. They were very flexible, and seemed to trul - Various Different Clients
