The Real Geniuses were talented, friendly, and great at rolling with the punches. The event attendees had a lot of fun listening and dancing to the band. They played lots of great covers and provided a great addition to my fundraiser event. I'd absolutely recommend them to anyone and would hire them again.
Within months, they were playing at parties and events all over the Baltimore/DC area to rave reviews. At that point the Geniuses still saw themselves as just a group of goofy guys playing a bunch of goofy songs, but they were proven wrong in the winter of 2001 when they began performing at weddings and larger events. The band began to consider themselves “professionals” as the crowds and opportunities, grew. They decided to run with it.
Over the past few years The Real Geniuses have honed their musical and technical skills while playing regularly for huge crowds of all ages at weddings, private functions, and on the Baltimore/DC club circuit. Their talent and reliability have turned them into a highly sought-after party/wedding/event band. Their enormous song catalog spans from the 50's to today's hits, which makes them versatile enough to play just about any event that could use a live band. The band comes fully stocked with male AND female vocalists, so there isn't a song that these guys (and gal) can't pull off -- and they prove it, routinely making events more special by learning special requests.
All of that being said, the Real Geniuses are far from your ordinary “cover band.” Because the members are still young (none of them were even in high school when the older portion of their song catalog was played on the radio), they bring a fresh new spin to the songs they play. Whereas most cover bands try to duplicate the songs they play as closely as possible, The Real Geniuses pride themselves on pumping a new, stronger energy into their live performances. So, if you're looking for a professional, high-energy band for your event, you can't go wrong with The Real Geniuses.
