J Todd Music Agency made the process of booking a band for our wedding reception simple. Jeff was very professional throughout the process and worked to find us a band within our budget. We planned the wedding and reception ourselves and it was really helpful to have someone knowledgeable about music options for our group of guests. We would not hesitate to contact the J Todd Music Agency the next time we need to book a musical act. Valentine and the Knights were a great addition to our wedding reception! They set a great mood for the party and really got our guests moving. Their style and musical variety was a hit with everyone. They have a talent for reading the room and playing just the right songs at just the right time. In addition, they were professional, courteous, and on time. - Gene Moses & Elizabeth DeRose-Moses.  9/3/2017.

I cannot say enough good things about working with Valentine & The Knights. I have never worked with a more professional, talented, and enjoyable band. They knew how to work the crowd, they easily took song requests and played an awesome variety of music. They were prompt, reliable, and fun! I think they certainly gained attention from dozens of people at our block party who were impressed with them. I would recommend this band for anyone who is looking to have a fun time at their event and hear great music!! M. S.

Valentine and the Knights was the best band we could have possibly picked for our wedding reception. They were incredibly accommodating even with time changes, and they helped make our event, as many of our guests said, one of the most fun weddings they had ever been to. It sounds cliched, but I can honestly say that Valentine and the Knights had everyone from our 80 year old relatives and loved ones to my 3 year old cousins and even the too-cool-for-school high school kids dancing. My husband and I both agreed the dance floor looked like a scene out of a movie with everybody up and groovin. Thank you for an awesome night Valentine!!! Hannah H. 6/7/14

We loved Valentine and the Knights. They were just exactly what we wanted. Everyone loved their play list and had fun dancing as well as enjoying the soft music during dinner. We will rebook for next year!

We hired Valentine & The Knights from the J Todd Music Agency for our annual Pontoon Crawl at Lake Quivira. All patrons had a great time. Valentine & The Knights were helpful, entertaining, and kept the party lively. They were very open to requests. We could not have asked for better. Deborah Ehlers

We had a blast with Mark Valentine and The Knights! They were the best "non-stuffy yet classy" band we could have chosen for our reception at the Nelson-Atkins Museum. The dance floor was going from the beginning to the end of the party because they were so fantastic! Mark was very easy to work with at the reception. He and the band definitely aimed to please us by making sure we were hearing all of the songs we wanted and he was very good at reading the crowd to decide on songs that we didn't request. We would highly recommend this band to anybody looking to throw a great party!" Miriam & Kerry Zavagnin 12/27/08 Wedding

Valentine and The Knights did an amazing job at our annual employee party at Union Station. Everyone loved the music and had a great time...the music set the stage to create a fabulous event.

Valentine & The Knights were the perfect wedding band! They had a lot of energy, were very talented, and they could play any song we requested. Laura Becker 8/29/09 Wedding at the Madrid KC MO

Everyone had a great time. Everyone said Mark Valentine and the Knights are a great band!!! Alicia & Robert were very pleased, as was Alicia's father, Glen. What more can you ask? Jeff, thank you for all of your efforts.

Pat Terry. Herman Wedding. 4/9/2011

The guys in the band were great! Their music was top notch. I would highly recommend this group to play at any function in town. Barb Prater Sand in the City KC, Wonderscope Children's Museum of Kansas City 5/21/2011
