We celebrated our 30th anniversary with 90 friends and The Phil Abair band rocked the tent for 3 hours. Everyone danced--even friends who "don't dance". They took one break and then kept on playing until the party was over. They are talented and can play just about anything. I asked them to learn a song to surprise my husband (it was the first song played at our wedding). They learned it and played it for us and it was great. Everyone commented on how good the band was. I would certainly hire them again. They were amazing!
With a repertoire that spans all styles of dance music...from Doobie Brothers to Bruno Mars.
The band can add horn players if you're looking for a bigger band
Their mission is to keep everyone on the dance floor, the PAB is the perfect fit for a New England wedding.
