The Atlantics are a dance band of five experienced musicians who enjoy what they are doing and when you see them on stage you can tell! With over 75 years of combined experience on stage they know what it takes to make a good thing happen with the same line-up in the band since 1979. This brings an extra element to the show since it is anything but a "pick-up" band, the group can read the audience and play the right music all the time, and of course when musicians play together that long, they are intuitive among the members, creating a tight sound that just can't be recreated by bands with little time performing together. Carrying on the tradition of some of the great dance bands of The Northwest they play a mix of infectious popular music from the last 35 years. Members of the group have also performed with such luminaries as; John Lee Hooker, Bonnie Raitt, T-Bone Burnett, Chubby Checkers, The Powder Blues Band and The New Deal Rhythm Band.
Styles Of Music: Rhythm & Blues, Motown hits of the 1960's, Top 40, Rock from the 50's 60's 70's & 80's, Jazz and easy listening for background music.
Performers & Instrumentation: Keyboards, Bass, Guitar, Drums, and sax. All five members are also vocalist, bringing out the strong harmony vocals that will remind you of many of the original classic recordings.
Hello Paul, This is a very tardy note to tell you how much we enjoyed your music at our party on December 27,2008! We both still get a warm glow every time we think of that evening! The music, the food and the friends and family were divine. Your contribution to the success of the evening was huge and we thank all The Atlantics for the fabulous music.
Best Regards. Shirley Schaad.
