This professional and versatile live band has performed at over 2,000 Metro Detroit and Southeast Michigan weddings and special events. In addition to performing with Rare Blend, individual members of the band have performed with and/or toured with a number of big-name acts, including Detroit's own Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band, Aretha Franklin, The Four Tops, The Temptations, Gladys Knight and the Pips, and Martha Reeves, as well as Grand Funk, The Who, The Moody Blues, Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons, Natalie Cole, Manhattan Transfer, and David Sanborn.


Alison and Josh, who live in New York, chose to return to Michigan for their wedding. Their reception was a high-energy party from start to finish! Everyone, young and old, loved the band and had a blast! At the very end of the night, as we were packing up equipment, a lovely lady, who I suspect was in her 80s, stopped me to say that this was the best wedding she had ever been to and that I had done the finest job of coordinating that she had ever seen. When I told her that she made my day, she replied, "Oh no, you made my day!"


Rare Blend, as a premier Metro Detroit wedding band, is one of the most trusted names in music and entertainment in Southeast Michigan, due in part to the leadership of Mary Davis, Rare Blend's bandleader. With over twenty years of experience as an event planner, Mary guides her clients through each step of the planning process with extensive knowledge and a genuine desire to address their needs and create an event that matches their every dream.
