The Jon Bates Band is a truly unique blend of extraordinary musicians and vocalists. They have performed at many high profile venues and events around the world, and entertained for parties with guest lists including some of the most prominent names in business, politics and entertainment. They have collectively accompanied and shared stages with many legendary performers, but most of all, this is just an amazingly authentic, soulful and fun party band, with an unparalleled reputation for infusing energy and making folks feel real good!

Authentically covering all musical genres, The Jon Bates Band is the ultimate musical entertainment choice for any gala celebration or premier social event. Without exception, they make a party come alive! They musically engage and inspire people to dance and enjoy themselves! This is a band that can satisfy any musical appetite, and is well known for their extremely broad repertoire of great songs from every era.

The Jon Bates Band always uses a professional state-of-the-art PA system to present high quality sound, with optimum clarity at an appropriate volume. This also allows clients the option of having digitally mastered music played during band breaks, and for those clients who prefer to have "Club Mixes" blended into their overall entertainment package, making the transition between live and pre-recorded dance tracks is never a problem.

The Jon Bates Band always makes every effort to accommodate a client's wishes and exceed expectations. The standard instrumentation of the band is keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, saxophone, and phenomenal male and female lead vocalists. Depending on the personal preferences, space, and budget allowances for each event, the size of the band can also be modified to accommodate a more intimate setting when necessary, and/or expanded to a 13- piece orchestra, with a full horn section and/or other genre specific musicians when desired.

The Jon Bates Band also has extensive experience playing aboard Caribbean and Trans Atlantic cruises and handling all logistical and procurement aspects associated with destination events worldwide. Unlike most "event bands", The Jon Bates Band is uniquely situated in New York and Martha's Vineyard, performs regularly between Northern New England and the Mid Atlantic states, and goes absolutely anywhere that great musical entertainment is desired. Furthermore, the musicians and vocalists represented to you are the ones who will actually perform at your event. This is an extremely cohesive band, with a unique and very special chemistry. They have developed an extraordinary sound that has evolved from years of playing together, and are available at a very fair and competitive price.
