Unlike most, Around Town is a "set" group that is rehearsed and polished. With their dedication to perfection, they are always prepared to perform today's top radio and club hits as well as bringing life to the old classics, including jazz, motown, disco, rock and roll, soul, and big band. Their high energy performance creates a dynamic, yet sophisticated party atmosphere for all to enjoy.
When it comes time to planning an event, Around Town is there from day one to help design an entertainment outline. With an experienced advisor and an extensive song list, each client is guided through the selection of music styles and direction for their event. It is important to recognize that every client has different tastes and needs, and therefore the music and entertainment must adjust accordingly.
In addition to live music, Around Town with their team of experts, can provide a full entertainment production by incorporating DJ's, MC's, full lighting and effects, professional sound, video, high tech games and giveaways.
Additionally, specialty groups such as Latin bands, string ensembles, broadway singers and dancers, Sinatra specialists, crowd motivating dancers, and classical opera singers are available to add a unique touch.
"We wanted to thank you and your band for an amazing time at our wedding. You really exceeded our expectations! Everyone was telling us how much they loved the music and how great you all sang (in case you couldn't tell my the repeated standing ovations)! Our friend will be calling you soon for her upcoming wedding, so we look forward to seeing you again!!!"
