"The Test Icicles are the band we turn to year after year to bring the house down - there simply is not a better set of musicians that do what these guys do. Professional and charismatic with an insane attention to detail in their music, The Test Icicles are booked solid through our summer season. The band is one of the reasons for our venue's growth and success over the past few years, giving our spectators, athletes and sponsors vivid memories from every unique show they perform.”

“We wanted to let you know how fantastic you guys were at our event - as promised, you kept the dance floor full ALL NIGHT! Everyone LOVED the band, and went on incessantly about how amazing the event was. Thank you also for working so well with our DJ, you complemented each other perfectly, and we hope we can work together again. Everyone was blown away… THANK YOU!!"

“I, along with my fellow event coordinators, could not have been happier with the performance from The Icicle Test. With a crowd of over 600 students in attendance for our annual Landscape Architecture conference ‘LABash’, this band made sure that each person was up on their feet dancing the night away. They had an amazing and explosive energy on stage, interacted so well with the crowd, and made the entire evening feel extremely comfortable and made sure everyone was excited for the night to continue on.
Aside from their fantastic performance, The Test Icicles were a pleasure to deal with. Band leader Mike B put in countless extra hours weeks in advance to help us obtain and coordinate top notch equipment for our event. He was always available to answer questions and was extremely accommodating, even when last minute changes arose.
Without any hesitation, I would recommend The Test Icicles for any event. If you’re looking for a high-energy, enthusiastic band – this is it!”

"Mike and the band are amazing. They played our Christmas party and every single guest, all ages, just loved every song they played. You could close your eyes and actually believe you were at the original artist's live show, and they were able to handle all the requests we threw at them. Total professionals and total fun. We've booked them for next year already."

“A quick note to thank you and your band for a phenomenal close to our meeting. After 3 days of meetings in Ottawa, we headed to a venue for dinner, networking and celebration. To say that The Icicle Test exceeded our expectations would be stating the obvious. It was a pleasure to work with such a fabulous group of professionals and best of all, my client (a prominent Pharmaceutical company) was thrilled. Proof of this was extending the end time of the event, no one wanted to leave. Thank you! We'll definitely be contacting you again in the future.”

“From the moment we contacted you to play our wedding, we knew we’ d done the right thing - and in the crazy times leading up to our wedding, having someone we could count on really meant a lot. You guys took care of everything for us: renting the A/V equipment, making sure everything was setup on time, and of course putting on a killer show! All Meg and I can remember from our guests was their one resounding comment, ‘where did you find that band, they are amazing!’
Thank you again for putting on such an unforgettable show, you definitely made our wedding what we think is the best wedding of all time (sure, we may be a bit biased but who is going to argue!?!).”
