Wow! What else can I say? The show last night was awesome and entertaining in every way. We heard a lot of positive comments from the crowd who seemed to enjoy every single moment. The musicianship and showmanship of the three of you is tremendous and impressive. I know our president is ready to sign you up for next year so please mark your calendars for June 30, 2013.

The Christmas Show presented by the New Odyssey Show Band has been a big hit for the last two years, so we have rebooked them for a third year. A big part of their appeal is that they, in addition to being terrific musicians and singers, are entertaining and present a lot of clean comedy. Each year the musical and comedy material changes quite a bit. All this including quite a lot of Christmas music make the New Odyssey an unbeatable Christmas Show.

I have seen dozens upon dozens of bands, but nothing like New Odyssey. The variety of different genres, styles, etc kept the crowd wanting more.

I wanted to take a moment and thank you all for an awesome performance at our 47th Triennial convention. Wow! It’s quite obvious that your group has been performing together for a long time. I loved the mix of music that was played throughout the evening. If I ever have an opportunity to incorporate a live band into a future program, there is no doubt, I will request New Odyssey. Thanks again for entertaining our guests!

Thank you for making our 40th reunion a great success! We couldn't believe all the positive feedback we received and how much everyone enjoyed the music and entertainment. You guys took this reunion over the top. Hope we can get you for our 45th!!

New Odyssey made our Board Retreat theme party the success it was. From the moment they began their show, I knew it would be a big hit. The band engaged everyone in the audience with their humorous and entertaining show followed by dance music that seemed geared specifically toward our group. We have hired many bands during the past 10 years but none as entertaining as New Odyssey -- they offer a show within a show!

Lederhossen Luncheon at Oktoberfest in La Crossse would not be the great event it is if it were not for New Odyssey. They have been at Oktoberfest for 14 of 15 years and I hope they are here for another 15 years or more.

Michael Aliesch, Director La Crossse Festivals - Oktoberfest, USA


It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of support for New Odyssey. This unique band has entertained thousands of visitors at our annual Heritagefest festival for the past 10 years providing them with an unforgettable experience. With its diverse combination of music, comedy, skits and acrobatics the New Odyssey has established itself as a "MUST SEE" act at Heritagefest.

Each year the New Odyssey performs as headliner entertainment for our festival, which attracts 40,000 visitors annually. Their performances appeal to audiences of all ages, from young children to seniors. The New Odyssey has established itself with our audience base and keeps them coming back year after year, after year!

We love these guys because of their high caliber of performance, their variety of entertainment and their ability to get the audience involved. They are masters at adapting their program to the diverse audiences at Heritagefest. Whether they are performing to a sedate afternoon crowd or a late evening party crowd, the New Odyssey is, indeed, a crowd pleaser.

I recommend the New Odyssey to anyone looking for entertainment that will provide its audience with an unforgettable, memorable experience!

If you are considering hiring New Oyssey for your event...Just Do It! The Monroe County Fair in Monroe, Michigan came upon the talents of this group back in 1992...and we've been using them eversince! New Odyssey performs three shows a day for our entire seven day run. Our free show pavilion holds about 900 and every show is filled! Their shows truly have something for everyone...from comedy to patriotism...from Big Band to Pop....they truly are unique and a delight to work with!
