About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

JP's All Star Band is an established nine-piece pro-level band covering soul, funk, blues, classic rock, and pop. The line-up features three vocalists, guitar, keyboards, sax, percussion, bass guitar and drums. The band is led by British guitarist Jeff Purchon who has played with some of music's greatest; Robert Palmer, Noel Redding (Jimi Hendrix), Ginger Baker, Vernon Reid, Buddy Miles to name but a few. The aim of the band is to play great songs and get people up on their feet and having a great time. JP and Friends have a wide repertoire of songs that they deliver with superb vocals and top-level musicianship providing infectious grooves that will have the crowd dancing the night away and still want more. Please read the reviews on The Bash - this band has never had less than five stars in all categories in literally dozens of reviews. The band is a one-stop shop for dance music, ceremony music, interval music, and everything you need to make an event such as an adult birthday, anniversary, wedding or corporate event extremely successful. The band mainly plays private functions these days but is no stranger to prestigious stages such as The Crossroads Festival at Memphis, The Hatch Shell in Boston, The House of Blues etc. The main front man is Michael Payette, a star in his own right who has been compared to Michael McDonald and possesses a voice and range enabling him to cover an impressive range of artists from the sixties right up to date! Mike is the consummate professional musician and knows just about every song ever written. He is also very experienced and comfortable with performing master of ceremony functions and helping run fund raisers. The vocal team includes the amazing Gospel-trained Suzanne Buell from Memphis, a former Stax recording artist and alumni of the Boston Conservatory. Suzanne is a life-long performer and administrative director of Indian Hill Music. Suzanne has performed both solo and ensemble with the Boston Pops Gospel Choir, Memphis Symphony Chorus, Cabrillo College Chorus, Oakland Interfaith Gospel Chorus, Boston Community Choir, NEC Millennium Choir, and others. Suzanne's female vocal partnership is provided by the talents of the award-winning Vicki Zelski, who has sung in many genres from jazz to pop to gospel music. A Berklee College of Music graduate, Vicki has also performed with the Boston Pops Gospel Choir, the Boston Community Choir and the NEC Millennium choir as well as singing the National Anthem at some Red Sox games. Vicki's ensemble won the Harmony Sweepstakes Regional Finals in New York City in 1986. The solid rhythm section is the best in the area. It features New York's Ron Pastore on bass, the amazing and versatile keyboard talents of Mike Valdez (can also cover classical / jazz / quiet background music if needed), the renowned Berklee pro Phil Antionades on drums, Hal Denham on percussion and last but not least, David Sanborn's rival, Brad Kohl on Sax. The band will make your event come to life. They bring all the sound equipment and lights needed to put on a real show. They are seasoned professionals and take pride in being dynamic and totally in control of volume levels - as well as being able to rip it up when appropriate! With a repertoire of over 200 songs, you can tailor your event exactly the way you want it!

Holiday PartyReviewed on December 30, 2023From Rumford, RI

It was a pleasure having JP's at our Holiday Event. The music was great, they were very responsive to the group, kept folks on the floor and worked well with the other activities that were going on in concert with the music. A solid performance! Would be happy to have them back any time!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on November 2, 2022From Newburyport, MA

I wish I could give JP's all star band a higher rating for overall talent!! They played at my daughter's wedding and had the dancefloor packed all night. I was hot and tired from dancing and wanted to sit down but every song was better than the last. Leading up to the event, Jeff held our hand and made sure all of my daughter's requests were met, from learning their wedding song to making sure everyone's name was pronounced properly for the introductions. They were professional start to finish. Did I mention how talented they are!!! Amazing musicians. Such a joy to work with. They made our event even better than we expected!! 10 out of 10

JP's All Star Band:

Thank you Belinda, it was a pleasure working with you.
