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. Clients love our rhythmic pocket which 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. 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, et Al. 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’ve played hundreds of weddings 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 and lights are top notch Evolve 50ms, new in 2021 which helps get 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
