The best live band for fundraisers. Organizations from across the United States and across the globe raising money for special causes rely on Maggie Speaks to entertain their guests with a choreographed night of music, lights, dancing, and fun.

Maggie Speaks understands the gala and fundraising event space. The band stays out of the way of the event producers, allowing them to concentrate on your main objective: raise money. Once the fundraising is complete, it is the band’s job to provide value and entertainment for the guests who have just donated. Maggie Speaks leaves the guests thoroughly entertained and wanting more, effectively building the buzz and anticipation of next year’s event.

“Once again, phenomenal! The dance floor was packed from start to finish as we exceeded our goals for the second year!”

With a name recognized for professionalism, and over 20 years of event band experience, Maggie Speaks has helped organizations raise millions of dollars for charity.

The band has performed for fundraisers and galas including: The Illinois Inaugural Ball, American Cancer Society Discovery Ball, Brookfield Zoo Whirl, Illinois Governor’s Inaugural Ball, Ronald McDonald House Gala, Alzheimer’s Association Rita Heyworth Gala, Museum of Science and Industry Columbian Ball, and Ravinia Music Matters Gala to name a few.

We also offer a partnership to accomplish fundraising goals by donating live band karaoke, a chance to sing with the band, to your live and silent auctions.

High net worth donors, future net worth donors. Maggie Speaks knows how to relate to an older crowd, usually the high net worth donor base, and the younger demographic, future high net worth donors, so that they are continually contributing and cultivating the pipeline for future success for the charity. Your attendees will leave energized, appreciated, and elated. There are no do-overs when it comes to major events, everything must go right the first time, that is why so many organizations trust Maggie Speaks.

Need something extra for your event? Planning a theme? Want a big band? Violins? Maggie Speaks can provide customized entertainment, large or small, that fits right in with your event needs. If what you want does not exist, Maggie Speaks and Magnificent Events will create it. The band can integrate seamlessly and painlessly with production on any scale.

Put the innovative passion and professionalism of Maggie Speaks to work for you. What are you waiting for? Let’s get the party started.
