They specialize in weddings, corporate or private parties, conventions, fundraisers or any event that needs a skilled professional true variety band that knows how to deliver.

From cocktail music to full on rock and funk the band can turn on a dime....... The band is always reading the room to keep dancers on the floor from the first song to the last. Whether it's pop, rock, funk, country or even Latin music this band can satisfy even the pickiest of crowds. For wedding receptions De Nada Band will go out of its way to learn new songs for "First Dance or Parents Dance" and can provide wedding ceremony music when called for, this band can... DO IT ALL! For private parties and corporate events Erik's wonderful MC'ing and personality will guarantee that everyone attending will be involved in the party.

What you hear is what you get. The audio and video demos accurately represent the band's live musicianship. It's really a band of 4 lead singers each taking turns and mixing it up with their own unique singing abilities. Listen to De Nada Band, and you will not only hear great songs, but a dedication to the best music ever written.

Be a hero, hire De Nada Band!

--> Erik Smith (Lead Vocals, Front Man and Master of Ceremonies ) Charisma Plus! Erik will draw you in to this amazing group of professional performers. A natural MC! Eric likes to get involved with the party and you will regularly find him on the dance floor with his cordless mic singing and partying with the dancers. He is a a great communicator and loves to interact with the crowd.

--> Ellen Godula (keyboards and golden vocals) provides lush piano, high-energy synth keyboards and a variety of other keyboard sounds and textures, adding just the right atmosphere to give each song authenticity. With a flawless soprano lead and background vocal she is the prefect keyboardist! She is the perfect soloist for any ceremony and your music choices are unlimited!

--> Ron Ruiz (lead guitar and vocals) A real guitar hero! Ron is humble enough to keep it simple when necessary, and confident enough to make it complex when it counts. Ron's vocals are top notch and his rendition of "Sweet Caroline" always gets the crowd dancing and singing along. Ron can kill it or hug it depending on the song.

--> Brian Godula (bass, vocals, cello) adds wisdom to the mix. An accomplished bass player, his resume is a testament to his talent.

--> Dusty Hill (Drums) is more Ringo than Bonzo, more Watts than Moon, always on time and in the pocket.

De Nada Band was everything we hoped for and more! We booked them less than a month before our wedding and they were very accomodating and responsive. They helped with everything from mics and a speaker system for our ceremony to helping choose the perfect set list for the rest of the night. I would definitely recommend them to anyone else wanting a very well rounded band to perform at any type of event.

WOW! De Nada Band blew everyone away. We had an AMAZING time at our wedding and can't thank them enough. I had so many people ask me where I found the band and how amazing they were. The entire band is extremely talented and really knew what to play to get everyone on the dance floor. From them learning our first dance song (You are the Best Thing, Ray LaMontagne), having the lead singer dancing and singing with the crowd and even playing through a little rain until we brought them tents, our entire group danced the night away and couldn't have had more fun. Don't hesitate to hire them you will be so happy you did. Thank you De Nada Band!

I was a little hesitant to book a band online . But De Nada lived up to everything they promised. They had a small window of time to set up their equipement but they were able to get set up on time. They are a highly skilled band and didn't miss a beat. They had a great set list that got everyone up and dancing and partying, which can sometimes be tricky at a scientific conference. They even played some extra songs at the end. Thanks Brian!!!

De Nada Band performed at our wedding and we couldn't be happier. They were professional, exciting, charismatic, and read the crowd beautifully. The dance floor was filled the entire night and would have easily stayed that way for as long as the band played! We received dozens of compliments from guests regarding the band and a few friends asked to pass along their information for future weddings. Brian was an incredible MC - funny, witty, energetic. Prior to the wedding they were responsive and attentive - we were shocked how simple it was to work with them. We would recommend De Nada Band to anyone - we are so happy they were available for the wedding!

De Nana Band was awesome! They played our wedding ceremony (classical music on keyboards), cocktail hour (great jazz & bossa nova), and reception (rock & pop music that pleased all ages). They were wonderfully accommodating, very professional, incredibly talented, and loads of fun. We met with them 4 months in advance and they even learned a new song for us. The day of, they were very flexible and great MCs, getting the crowd onto the dance floors and incorporating wedding specific things (like pies instead of cake!) into their songs. They made our day extra special. We highly highly recommend De Nada Band!

De Nada was awesome! They had great musicianship, harmonies and obvious skill. They took requests from guest, sang backup on a special song and even harmonized from new lyrics. So many guests have told me how great the band was. They read the audience, feed off the group and got people dancing. They have impressive musical skill. They are tight, harmonize well, hit all the licks and fills. The female voice increases their range and playlist. Brian was very professional, answering calls and emails, working with my brother and the facility, sending out the contract and setting up early. I would highly recommend De Nada to any one!
