About
ESSEX has been named the #1 Wedding Band on the Sacramento A-List in threee different years - 2015, 2016, and 2018! ESSEX has also placed in the Top 5 every year since 2008. ESSEX has been called the most entertaining band in the Sacramento area and our client testimonials prove it. With star quality male and female vocalists, the most talented musicians and supporting vocalists, and full and exciting professional sound, ESSEX delivers on a highly consistent basis with the versatility and grace you'd expect from a world class entertainment act. ESSEX plays everything 100% live - no tracks! So many bands these days rely so much on backing tracks to cover vocals and even full instruments that they wouldn't be able to play their show without them! You're hiring a live band. You should get just that! We don't use any tracks and pride ourselves on our vocal and instrumental talents to get the songs just right.

No event is too large or too small. Advanced choreography, lighting, professional DJ services, and the most memorable experiences -- all provided at the most surprisingly affordable price!

We'll tailor options to fit your specific needs, and work hard to fit within your budget. And we can always go bigger, if you wish, and offer additional musicians to provide the most expressive effect.

Contact us today for your personalized quote and be sure to ask for our website to see what so many clients have said about us. Let's get this party started!

I enjoyed Essex tremendously. They have a lot of energy and the singing was absoutly by the female leads. They were super easy to work with and very friendly.

Essex was recommended to me by a family friend and I could not be more happy that I booked them for my wedding. Grace was awesome during all of the pre-event planning and made me feel very comfortable with everything. There really aren't enough good words to describe how their performance was during the reception. All of my guests raved about them, and the floor was packed until the very end of the night. The show was high energy and very entertaining. I loved every single sing they played, and if I ever need a live band again Essex will be my first choice. Thanks for an awesome night!!!!

Lets see, They showed up on time and was patient about waiting for our speaker to finish speaking, and during the set up they worked with us to get the sound system up and going. They were all great performers with excellent talent The ladies had a beautiful voices, They started off with the right music for the crowd and worked towards really getting the crowd motivated and dancing. I had requested a song that was not on their list during the event planning part of our celebration and they took the the time to practice it before they came to Maynords round up and played it at the end as I requested and the did a beautiful job. We will have them back next year. James

We booked Essex for our Wedding in Tahoe in September and they were totally awesome! From the time we booked them, they were very easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions or requests that we had. We received several compliments on the band during and after the wedding and several of our guests asked for their contact information. I highly recommend booking Essex for your events. They were fun, sounded GREAT, were reliable and really got our party going!

Essex put on a Stellar show! This band kept our party dancing all night, their energy level and enthusiasm was contagious to our family and friends. From the opening song to the last late night groove, every member of Essex put in their very best performance. We couldn't have asked for a more entertaining, fun and easy to work with group. Thanks Essex band, John and Mary Stanfield

I hired Essex to perform at a New Year's Eve Gala. From the first contact I had with their business manager, to the time we parted ways following the event, I found them to be dependable, professional and accommodating. There was a broad age range (late 20's to 60's) that attended the event and the band created a mix of music that appealed to all of them! The dance floor was packed during every song and almost everyone in the room participated in the longest conga line that I've ever seen! I will definately be asking them to entertain not only this event next year, but hopefully many others as well. I would highly recommend them to my friends, colleagues and you! Essex, thanks for your contribution to making this event a huge success! Kary Aldridge, Chairperson Midnight Gala

We hired Essex for my husband's Christmas party on Dec. 14, 2006. Mike Kirk and members of Essex were wonderful to work with. They were concerned with the crowd having fun and kept everyone dancing until the end of the night. From the initial contact to the end of the event they were professional, responsive and courteous. Great band, great people and great fun.
