“ I emailed other staff members that were there on Sunday and they all came back with the same fabulous reviews!   
Wildcard was a fantastic addition to our bike festival! The band was able to help us out on short notice and took care of all of the little details. We are so glad that the Calgary Bike Festival had such a great music group to play at the event. Thank you so much for being so professional and working with us during the early morning hiccups of possibly not having power! Showing up early was such a blessing; as it really helped me as the event coordinator to manage set up and get everything organized. Wildcard was professional, punctual and most importantly entertaining! Thank you for a job well done, we look forward to working with you in the future!”

I wanted to extend a huge thank you to you and your stellar band Wildcard for performing at all three of our Tenant Stampede Functions. Our tenants were quickly energized and enjoyed themselves so much that we continue to receive compliments on hiring the best band ever! From your song choices with sweet harmonies and solos to your accomplished musicians, you really set the tone for such successful events.

It was a complete pleasure working with you and I appreciate your professionalism. I will look forward to working with you again in the future.

Best regards,

Nancy S. Tenant Relations Manager

Hey Jeff, 
Back to reality today after an awesome week in Mexico! Thank YOU, for your fantastic show at our wedding. We have had so many comments about how great you guys were, you really brought the party to life (and kept it beating even after we left so I have heard)! We will certainly do so and wouldn't hesitate to book you again. 
Also a big thanks from my Aussie friends and family who really appreciate the Aussie touches you worked in!! 
Cheers to you and the whole band!

“In regards to WILDCARD playing our annual corporate Stampede Event.... 
WILDCARD performed beyond my expectations, they read the crowd and kept everyone entertained.   
WILDCARD performed beyond my expectations both on stage and off, excellent communication in the weeks and days leading up to our function, and then they blew us away with their performance"

On behalf of the Lake at Heritage Pointe Stampede Breakfast Committee; I would like to pass along a special thank you to all the members of the Wildcard Band for putting on such a great show for our Stampede Breakfast. They were and still are 'the talk of the community.'   

This was an outdoor family event which our community puts on every year. Even though this was our first year using the Wildcard Band, we would love to invite them back to play in our future events.  The booking started off with great communication from Jeff Stillie, ironing out all the details like which power generator we needed to rent (as it was an outdoor event away from any power source), giving us advance knowledge of their play list, and arriving in plenty of time to do their set up and sound checks before the show was to start.  The show went on without a hitch.  Wildcard was great entertainment for the whole family.  We have teenage daughters and the feedback I received was "Mum this was the best band ever, as they played lots of songs that we knew!  

Thank you to all of you!”

Wildcard was excellent! They were professional, courteous, low-maintenance (from a planner’s prospective), and did a great job of engaging with and reading the crowd. Not to mention that they’re very talented and sounded great.

I would definitely recommend this band to others.

Wildcard plays a great mix of Classics, Rock, Pop, Country and Oldies, a very danceable combination. They are a well rehearsed band with tight sound and fabulous vocals. Every time they play at our venue they bring in patrons. They are a real crowd pleaser.

Thank you very much for your performance on Saturday night! You obviously found a successful way to appeal to the very mixed audience, as all the responses I received were very favourable. I was also very impressed with your willingness to be flexible and adapt your sets to whatever was going on. I will definitely recommend Wildcard for any other functions I may get to organize. 
 
Thank you very much and hopefully we will get to see you again in the near future.

Just wanted to thank you for both Wildcard and EJ. They were all absolutely wonderful and very patient.  

 Just my thoughts, you have an absolute GEM in Wildcard. Talent doesn't even begin to describe them, they were outstanding, both to work with and in their performance. They love to play and completely enjoy themselves while they're doing it. They have great respect for the client (ours was a little
eccentric) and they blew away everyone there. Thank you so much for that.

"Wildcard is the best band I have ever seen at a wedding in my entire life!!"


​Ted (Wedding Guest at Dave's Wedding)

“Wildcard” played at my parent’s 50th Anniversary party on August 22, 2009.  Everyone at the event thoroughly enjoyed the band and made a point of commenting on “how good they were”.  Wildcard played a wide range of material to suit the varied composition of the audience.  Each number was very professionally performed with the band sounding very tight.
 
Leading up to the event the band was very easy to talk to and always quick on replying to any questions we had.  They asked good questions of their own and always seemed to be happy to meet our requests, particularly as this was an outdoor party with the stage located in a tent.  When we inquired about booking the band I mentioned two old songs that meant a lot to my parents, to my unexpected surprise Wildcard learned both songs and performed them perfectly. 
 
The band arrived in plenty of time to set up their equipment and review any last minute items with the organizers.  Wildcard was very flexible with the schedule at the event and was willing to modify the length of their sets to accommodate the needs of the program.  In fact the band played an extra set on their own accord (much to the delight of the crowd) as they felt the previous sets were shorter than they were expecting. 
 
I have seen Wildcard perform at least 4 times now and have been very impressed each time.  Having been together for a few years now they are at the point where they are extremely fine tuned with each other and are a very solid band.  I would highly recommend “Wildcard” to anyone, or any establishment looking to book a great “good time” band.  You will not be disappointed and your expectations will be exceeded.”
