“March Hare was awesome! Would I hire March Hare again? In an instant! When they are able to entertain a very demanding group like ours AND command four encores, the results speak for themselves!”
– Norma Chrobak, TD Canada Trust

“Thank you so much for playing at our event for the third time. As usual, you were fantastic!! Everyone really enjoyed it. Amazing show and you were so easy to deal with!”
– Jenifer G, on behalf of the Holly PAC

“We have had the pleasure of booking March Hare Band for our last 2 holiday parties. They were so entertaining last year that everyone on staff was asking me to book them again! From first contact, Dan has been a pleasure to work with. His professionalism and willingness to accommodate our group’s requests made the booking process a breeze. Of course, the performance itself was even better – they had our party dancing all night! Even the people who were too shy to get up and dance commented on the band’s energy, and everyone loved Jenny’s costume changes and the variety of music played. I would definitely recommend them to any company looking to inject a bit of life into their corporate party… just don’t take our date!”
– Christine Dunsworth, Senior Account Executive, Sales, Vancouver Whitecaps FC

“We would like to book you for our Christmas party next year as well….and next year we will invite our Nanaimo company to join us – they are fun and will party to the bitter end! We couldn’t have been more pleased how the night went and I thank you all again for really making this a special event. It’s been such a pleasure dealing with you and I look forward to our next event with you!”
