About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

Nitro Express is hands down the finest Country Rock band in Southern California. Our song selection ranges from New Country to Classic Country, Classic Rock, Classic R&B, Southern Rock, Tex-Mex, Surf, & Oldies Rock. Though billed as a Country band, Nitro Express has influences ranging from Rock to Blues to R&B to British Invasion to Southern Rock to Surf Music to Motown and even Reggae! When they play a Classic Country song it is authentic...and when they play a Classic Rock song it is equally authentic to that style. But at the same time Nitro Express always puts their own stylistic stamp on every song they perform. When you book Nitro Express you have your choice of which style(s) would be most appropriate for your function. Nitro Express is known as one of the hardest working bands in Southern California. They are in high demand and are usually booked well in advance. They typically perform up to 200 shows at various Casinos, Corporate Events (Qualcomm, Kaiser Permanente), Private Parties, Theme Parks (Sea World, Magic Mountain, etc), and Summer Concerts. We are available for a wide range of functions and would love to talk to you about making your next Event something to remember!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on October 23, 2017From Corona del Mar, CA

This band was AMAZING! First for me to find a band through gigmasters. The band member Jim mentioned several times that they were the best of the best. Don't all band members say that? well he wasn't kidding. THEY WERE THE BEST OF THE BEST. I hired them for my husband's 50th surprise party. They played old school country for us. The music was awesome, the band members were pleasant to have. Thank you again! Carol Sue Haas
