About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

There are few bands that have the skill and talent to play virtually any musical style effectively like Charlotte, North Carolina's Alternate Take. Alternate Take is a group of four talented musicians that have joined forces to make one of the most impressive bands on the east coast. Each member has played professionally for many years and educational backgrounds include music degrees and Masters degrees. Two of us are perfect pitch, and our rhythmic pocket is perfect for getting people to dance. Not only are we well versed in rock, country, r&b, soul, southern rock, and contemporary party and dance music; but also original, jazz, and classical music. We also realize that being great players is not all it takes to be great entertainers. We engage the audience, take requests, and have fun on stage which is why our audiences enjoy our show. This is not just your typical wedding or cover band, this group of entertainers can write or perform any style that we listen to. Our harmonies separate us from other groups with three distinct musicians singing lead vocals with uniquely different, yet complimentary styles and each 4 members contributing to vocal harmony. If there is a song you want performed, Alternate Take can probably play it, and if we can't, we'll download it as our dj show is just as strong as our live show. Some of the stages we have played include: Jazz Fest of New Orleans, the Cotton Club of New York, Carnegie Hall, Bobcats Arena, Panther Stadium, to name a few. We've shared the stage with national acts like Ellis Marsalis, Bonnie Raitt, Hootie and the Blowfish, Archie Bell, Starship, Michael Brecker, and many others. Alternate Take knows how to adjust the music we play to fit the crowd. One of the advantages of knowing so many songs and styles is the ability to modify the performance to the mood and occasion at hand. Corporate events, private parties, and festivals are performed with energy, enthusiasm, and style. We customize our shows according to the people we play for, versatility is one of our strongest attributes. We've played a show for a jazz and R&B club one night, then played a biker bar the next where southern rock, country, and classical rock was required. The next day, we had to drive to Charleston for a prom where shag, pop, top 40, and club dj were requested; all three crowds loved the band, few bands can pull that off. Additionally, we play an average of about 50 weddings a year, so we know how to make a reception or a ceremony flow seamlessly. Although each wedding day is unique, the experience of doing so many helps us to be prepared for anything that might happen. We are all professionals and enjoy doing this type of performance. Our sound system is top notch JBL speakers and Crown amps and helps gets people dancing, live or dj. When you hire Alternate Take, you're hiring the best 4 piece band in the southeast. We can also add a female lead singer and trumpet player if a bigger production is desired. There is an additional song list provided if you would like to add our female lead vocalist to the band. Alternate Take Band Leader Grant Draper

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on August 27, 2016From Charlotte, NC

Alternate Take experience was superb! The whole experience from the scheduling, planning of music, the weather related changes we had to make, all made my birthday event memorable!!! I would hire them again in a second!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on May 3, 2014From Mooresville, NC

Alternate Take was beyond AMAZING! I felt very fortunate to have these four guys play at my wedding reception a couple weeks ago. They did a phenomenal job playing all the songs I requested and even learned a new song for our First Dance. Their live music was incredible and their raw talent was top notch. The variety in songs and vocals for this band was truly enjoyable. They played anything and everything to meet the needs of my diverse guest list from young to old. Even during the garter toss, Grant got out on the dance floor with his saxophone and really got the group going. Pretty much if you don't book Alternate Take for your event...You're missing out! -LL
