What's the difference between FAST LANE and other bands? No matter how large or small your event and/or venue, FAST LANE will perform with the same passion and intensity during each and every performance. FAST LANE blends musical styles into an explosion of funky grooviness that keeps dancers on the floor till last call. SCOTT FREE emerged from the Northeast in a full fury of musical ideas. He's been playing professionally since his formative years - sneaking in to play club gigs as an underageling. He has played with a wide variety of musical stars - Bernie Worrell, George Clinton, Parliament/Funkadelic, Bo Diddley, to name a few. His musical repertoire is impressive ranging from country to r and b to rock, but inherent is the deep down funkiness.....evident in his contributions to FAST LANE. VERNON MONTOYA studied music theory in Boston, wrote songs since he was a teenager, recorded music in his early twenties. He learned to tinkle the ivories under fire.

Review by Adrian A.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on February 11, 2012From Miami, FL

We booked fastlane about 7 to 8 months in advance for our wedding in Miami Florida. We had alot of requests for specific songs for our reception. Fastlane's only request was that we get them what we wanted to hear a few months in advance and they would easily accomodate. True to thier word they delivered on what we wanted to hear and then some. Most impressive was that only about a 3rd or so of our request were on thier song list that they posted on Gigmasters. Every guest was impressed with the band and we partied. We would highly reccommend Fastlast for any event. If you want a professional talented band Fastlane is the best choice by far.....

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on October 16, 2010From Orange Park, FL

The Fast Lane played at my wedding in October 2010, and was a HUGE hit! We knew we wanted to hire a band, hoping it would make the event more lively and get everyone up and dancing instead of sitting at their table waiting for the next thing to happen. Fast Lane provided not only music, but ENTERTAINMENT all night, no guest was left waiting for what happens next. They made all the announcements throughout the evening fun by singing a jingle instead of bossing the herd of guests to the next room. I am not exaggerating in that the FIRST compliment we get from 90% of guests is for the band. Vernon is so professional in the booking and details. Will not be disappointed!

FundraiserReviewed on April 11, 2010From Saint Augustine, FL

Fastlane was phenomenal. They were professional, prompt, entertaining and movtivated my guests to join in and dance till they couldn't. I would hire them again without a moment's hesitation.
