Omaha, Nebraska, Iowa’s Wedding Reception Party Cover Band

The Mighty Nish Band can help make your wedding reception the best night of your life for you and a truely unforgettable experience for your guests.  We are definately not the typical wedding band. We reinvent your favorite songs and make them our own. We surprise crowds by mixing and mashing your favorite tunes with a lot of fun and energy. Everyone from your great, great auntie to your youngest nephew will feel good and be on the dance floor. To keep the wedding party going songs are chosen on-the-fly by reading the crowd. We give you more songs than other bands because, much like a great DJ, there is no break in the music. After each non-stop, interactive, all live set the party continues with your favorite recorded songs pumping through the 10,000 watt sound system. Of course, the music can be as loud or quiet as you want. At end of night your guests will be chanting ‘One more song!’

If you want your wedding reception to be the best party of your life you should choose the Mighty Nish Band. Whatever event you are planning, the Mighty Nish Band can help you make any event great. But do not just take our word for it. Listen to what our clients have to say:

‘When planning for our wedding, my fiance and I debated between having a DJ or a band play at our wedding reception. A DJ may have been a cheaper choice, but we thought that we would have more fun with a live band at our reception dance. We stumbled across the Mighty Nish Band online and they were open for our day so we booked them. From the very beginning the band did an incredible job of answering any of our questions and working with us to plan out the reception. They were very professional and I could tell that they had a lot of experience in performing at receptions like ours. When the reception dance started, all of our guests were blown away. They played a vast variety of music that each of our guests felt they could go dance to. They interacted with the crowd well by being energetic on stage and even giving the little kids that came onto the dance floor egg shakers to get them involved in the music. The best part of their performance was how they pulled parts of different songs together to make a collage of music that was so musically impressive and at the same time great to dance to. Almost all of our guests were dancing, and if they weren’t, they were sitting near the dance floor being thoroughly entertained by the band. What could beat having a lead accordion player anyways? I believe that choosing the Mighty Nish to play at our wedding reception instead of a DJ was easily one of the best decisions that we made while planning our wedding and I would highly, highly recommend that you book this band for whatever your event is. They’ll make it a night to remember.’ — Brett W,Rock Valley, IA, 8/27/2011
