About
Are you looking for an alternative to your typical cover band? West Grand Boulevard realizes that not everyone appreciates cheesy costumes and a set list that resembles something from a 1980s prom or a karaoke bar on a cruise ship. They have created a more classy, elegant option for those special events that require something a little bit more exclusive.

West Grand Boulevard specializes in classic Motown, R&B, and Soul hits. Formed in early 2003, the band has performed for thousands of people at countless weddings, private parties, events, festivals, fundraisers, and clubs. Performing the popular music of influential artists like Stevie Wonder, the Temptations, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, James Brown, Michael Jackson and more, West Grand Boulevard is a great way to get a crowd of any age or size up onto the dance floor.

The members of West Grand Boulevard are professional musicians, and treat their clients with care. West Grand Boulevard makes sure that every event they are a part of runs as smoothly as possible. Starting with a quick and courteous load-in and set up, followed by flexibility and cooperation throughout the event, and finishing up with an efficient tear down and clean up, West Grand Boulevard is much more than your average wedding band.

If you are looking for a high quality, talented, versatile and easy to work with musical ensemble, look no further. West Grand Boulevard is just what you need to make your special event a memorable occasion!

West Grand Boulevard was a great addition to my party this year. Everyone commented on what a great band they were and how enjoyable the party was. It was sad when they started packing up as we felt we could have stayed and listened to them for another hour or so....Thanks again for getting the vibe going at the party.

We booked WGB for our (relatively small-ish) wedding (about 65 guests). WGB was PERFECT. Not only were they great in terms of planning and coordination (super flexible, super easy to get a hold of, and super professional); they also were exactly what we wanted: a live band with amazing vocals (truly amazing), backed by true musicians playing multiple instruments (including horns). They also played the perfect mix of classic stuff (think Van Morrison) and new stuff (think Bruno Mars), all infused with their own energetic style. Guests raved about them all night; and a bunch of guests are already planning to see WGB again. I cannot recommend WGB highly enough!

Hiring West Grand Boulevard was the best decision I made for my wedding, aside from picking my groom. They were the life the of the party. All the guests raved about how good the band was. They kept everyone on the dance floor till the last song. My husband remarked that it was almost like Chuck Berry and Albert King played our wedding. But it wasn't Chuck Berry, it was West Grand Boulevard.

West Grand Boulevard FAR exceeded my expectations!! I loved their bio & the snippets I could listen to on the Gigmasters website. I booked them based on listening to the snippets & I was NOT disappointed. They sounded even better live!! The band has great range & a wide variety of classic Motown oldies that they played for my Mom's Surprise 60th Party. They were friendly, professional, & talented! I would HIGHLY recommend booking them for your next event. I coordinated all the details through email with one of the band members named Anna; she was prompt w/ her responses & very detailed in email. EVERYONE at the party wanted to know who they were & where I found them!
