About
The ROMANTICS FOR LOVERS PAST PRESENT & FUTURE specializes in creating magic moments and excitement. We are after all ROMANTICS!

WHAT DO WE DO?
The ROMANTICS are offered as a quintet, quartet or trio to be more economical and intimate. We are standing by for your Wedding entertainment or to serve as a cover band. We focus on your event and take pride in customizing our performance to fit your needs. As a Wedding music band we have great Wedding singers who are experienced and can sing in a number of languages. As you will see from our videos we are great as a Jazz Band, Rock Band, Beach, Americana and Traditional Jazz Band.

WHERE HAVE WE PERFORMED?
The ROMANTICS are favorites with the Jazz Club of Sarasota and recently performed their Jazz Festival where we featured John Lamb who was bassist for Duke Ellington. We are performing at Vinoy Renaissance in St. Pete, Woody's River Roo in Ellenton and St. Valentine's day at Captiva Island. The ROMANTICS served as the House band at Coolinary on Main Street, Sarasota and Amore by Andrea (5 Star Restaurant) Longboat Key. We have performed at a variety of venues including , Tampa Museum of Art, Ringling College of Art & Design, Hilton Downtown, Tampa, Ybor City, Z's on Main Street, Harbour Island Tampa and Fat Tuesday at Duval's Fresh Seafood. I have also served as sideman for many regional bands and acts including NuJazz (Smooth Jazz, Second Line, R&B), Stone Crab Steve Arvey (Beach, Blues, Rock), The Hoo Doos (Louisiana Jazz, Blues, Rock), Nexxlevel (R&B), Democracy (Reggae) and Smash (Rock).

WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
Experience has taught us that the primary genre you need from a party band for hire, is sometimes just not enough. A Wedding live band often requires music for 3 generations. Versatility is a valuable and challenging quality for your band to have.
WHERE ARE WE FROM?
I owned and performed with The Leon Merian Band (16 piece big band). Leon was a famous sideman and lead trumpeter for Elvis, Sinatra and The Burt Parks Orchestra where his 2nd and 3rd trumpeters were Doc Severinsen and Clark Terry. These guys later became the Tonight Show Band. Leon was in fact replaced by Louis Armstrong on the famous Worldwide Ambassadors Tour.

For Jazz Band, Latin Band, Mariachi band, Cover Band, Rock Band, For Beach Music, Wedding Reception Band, For Traditional Jazz Band.The ROMANTICS FOR LOVERS PAST PRESENT & FUTURE specializes in creating magic moments and excitment. We are after all ROMANTICS!

While the musicians were all very talented...I stressed to Steve that they needed to keep the people on the dance floor..their music was beautiful but they didn’t meet our expectations and when we mentioned it to them...they didn’t change their repertoire....hence our guests walked out with about an hour to go on their session....

Our residents are very particular about the entertainment we use! We had booked the Romantics to play a 50's, 60's , 70's Show on February 23rd. At the last minute, with one days notice they stepped in to replace another band that had let us down. THEY WERE FANTASTIC! They were on time, their sound system was professional and well equipped, they took requests. At several points they had nearly everyone in our hall on the dance floor to Electric Slide, Line Dancing and what ever WE wanted! WOW! This is a completely different experience from what we have become used to!!!

My guests LOVED my music. I loved the horns especially but it was just GREAT and well played music. It made my 50th birthday celebration one i will never forget and an unforgettable experience for my guests. Organized music is a must for any well thought out party and I appreciated Steves constant follow up, contact, pre planning and organization. Will hire again and would absolutely recommend for any classy event you plan on throwing, especially for 40 and over.
