The Way

Classic Rock Band from Newfield, NY - Will travel up to 100 miles

$100 - $1000 per event
What makes “The Way” band unique? We are not a “cookie-cutter” wedding/ event band that plays the same songs the same way every time. Rather, we are a fun, creative, spontaneous and lively group of seasoned professionals who love to play and love to make people happy.

We have a huge repertoire of material from many genres from classic and modern rock to Motown to jazz and even a little country. Typically for a wedding or corporate event, we play jazz or soft-rock during the cocktail hour that serves as superior background music that is interesting to listen to but not too in your face. But when it comes time that people are ready to dance, it's all about the funk, Motown, rock and boogie that will keep people movin' and groovin'.

The main strength of “The Way” is in serving your event at every moment the best it can possibly served musically. How do we do this? Our decades of experience as pro musicians (some of whom have played in many countries as well as Carnegie Hall and the LA FAME Awards), gives us the ability to “read” the crowd and respond accordingly with the perfect song at every moment. Further, each member of the group also plays in other bands and brings fresh, creative ideas to the table every time we play.

So, if you are looking for a real first-class band that is also totally fun and ready for anything; if you want a group that will get people asking “Wow where did you find this band?” then look no further. This, to us, is “The Way” it should be.

Overall Talent

We had an awesome evening this past Saturday with The Way at my birthday party! This was my first time hiring someone from online and they surpassed our expectations -- from the beginning they were easy to work with, responsive, professional and friendly. Every song they chose was perfect, and they even took a few requests from our guests. Just as we had hoped, everyone was dancing and singing along and had a great time. Thanks for everything!
