The Pimps of Pompe provide an experience steeped in international sophistication, alongside a heaping helping of good old-fashioned groove. Their diverse musical offerings include many radio hits from the 90s/2000s as well as classic R&B, soul, and vintage jazz, and an ever-increasing range of styles from Brazil, France, and most recently, Cuba.
Bandleader Cynthia McDermott loves getting to know clients and their preferences to design the perfect musical backdrop for their wedding or event. The band will gladly learn songs chosen by the client for special moments such as first dances and ceremony processionals.
Cynthia leads the band on mandolin and vocals, and the group is available as a trio (with guitar and upright bass), quartet (trio + drums), quintet (quartet + piano), or sextet (quintet + saxophone).
With an ever-expanding repertoire, the Pimps of Pompe are adept at providing just the right mood for the moment. Cynthia’s silky smooth vocals can gently float around the room for background ambiance, and the band is also happy to launch into their signature driving grooves when the group is ready to party.
Band provides sound equipment, and can have microphones accessible for speeches/toasts if necessary. Recorded background music is available during breaks if requested. Cynthia is also happy to act as general MC (introducing couple for the first time at reception, making any pertinent announcements).
