About Vendor

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

THE JON BATES BAND is a unique blend of extraordinary musicians and vocalists, with a magical chemistry that has evolved from a passion for playing music, shared experiences, and deep personal friendships over many years. They have performed at some of the most high profile venues and events around the world, and entertained for parties with guest lists including some of the most prominent names in business, politics and entertainment. They have collectively accompanied and shared stages with many legendary performers. BUT, most of all, this is just an amazingly authentic, soulful and fun party band, with an unparalleled reputation for infusing energy and making folks feel REALLY good! Covering all genres, THE JON BATES BAND is the ultimate musical entertainment choice for any gala celebration or premier social event. Without exception, they make a party come alive! They musically engage and inspire people to dance and enjoy themselves! This is a band that can satisfy any musical appetite, and is well known for their extremely broad repertoire of great songs from every era. THE JON BATES BAND uses a professional state-of-the-art PA system to present high quality sound, with optimum clarity at an appropriate volume. This also allows clients the option of having digitally mastered CD's played during band breaks, and for those clients who prefer to have "Club Mixes" blended into their overall entertainment package, making the transition between live and pre-recorded dance tracks is never a problem. THE JON BATES BAND always makes every effort to accommodate a client's wishes and exceed expectations. The standard instrumentation of the band is keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, saxophone, and an amazing male and female lead vocalist. Depending on the personal preferences, space, and budget allowances for each event, the size of the band can also be modified to accommodate a more intimate setting when necessary, and/or expanded to a thirteen piece orchestra, with a full horn section and/or other genre specific musicians when circumstances permit. Once you confirm with THE JON BATES BAND for your event, the date is reserved for only you. The musicians and vocalists represented to you are the ones who will actually perform at your event. This is an extremely cohesive band, with a unique and very special chemistry. They have developed an extraordinary sound by playing together for years, and are available at a very fair and competitive price.

Review by Taylor S.

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on July 14, 2012From Wolfeboro, NH

The Jon Bates Band is over the top. I would rehire them in a heart beat. They knocked it out of the park. We are old people and they had all of us up dancing from the very first song. They were friendly but professional. Their talent with instruments is beyond compare. I highly recommend hiring all 7 members as their harmonies were mesmorizing. Loved the sax player? YUM! What more can I say except: Thank you Jon Bates! I sincerely hope to have you and the band back again in the near futue. If anyone is looking for a go to band that does it all do not hesitate! Grab The Jon Bates Band before someone else does. Taylor Sage 7/17/2012

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 30, 2011From Clifton, NJ

Look no further, as the Jon Bates Band are the most talented, accommodating, and professional entertainers that you can find. But so much more than that, is the genuine warmth and great spirit that they share with each other and all your family/friends. They make the day all about you and doing everything possible to exceed even the highest of expectations. We can't wait for their next public venue so we can go and share another wonderful evening with them.

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on June 4, 2011From Cooperstown, NY

The Jon Bates Band performed at my wedding and they are the best!! Giving them our "special dance" song selections was virtually the only direction I gave, and I let them do the rest. At the reception and days and weeks to follow, I had guests asking me "where did you find this/that band?!" Everyone exclaimed how great they were! I had no worries on my wedding day and it was an absolute hit!!
