WHAT WE DO

     For starters, we get people dancing if there’s a floor (even if there isn’t) and having a great time. We also place a premium on professionalism and working closely with organizers, on the front end and throughout, to make sure their events are a success.

     It takes a special touch and knowledge for a band to play large-scale parties and events, and we’ve honed that through years of playing at them.


     WHERE WE’VE PLAYED

     We’ve headlined over the past decade at many major annual fundraisers for the American Cancer Societies of Tampa, Pinellas, Pasco, Orlando and Sarasota/Venice; the annual Children’s Dream Fund gala and auction inside Tropicana Field;  the Commodore’s Ball -- the “Super Bowl” of dances  each year at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club; the Davis Island Yacht Club’s Christmas Party and Commodore’s Ball; a gala event at Universal Studios; the Beaches Chamber of Commerce gathering at the Don CeSar; many popular “Full Moon” parties at Harvey’s Grill in St. Pete; Quantum Leap Farms events to benefit U.S. veterans, law enforcement and first responders dealing with trauma; Country in the Park in Pinellas Park (a decade as the featured local band); Mainsail Arts Festival in St. Petersburg; the Carlton Arms Complex Holiday Parties at seven locations annually around Florida, the St. Anthony’s Triathlon post-race athletes party; the 75th anniversary celebration of St. Paul’s Church at the St. Petersburg Coliseum, the Richard Montgomery High School Class of 1966 Reunion in Rockville, Md. (our longest roadtrip and one of our all-time great gigs) and an array of weddings from St. Pete to Tampa to Boca Grande.
