About
Great, fun, dance cover music is our hallmark! To witness a Raising Cain show is to see ultra-polished entertainers, with professional choreography and dance moves that get your whole crowd up on their feet! To see for yourself, check out our new Live Video under the "Media" tab above! We're also one of the most decorated bands in the Rocky Mtn. region. Gigmasters awarded Raising Cain their 2011 Top Star award as the "Best Variety Band" in the entire nation! With thousands of bands across the U.S. in this category, it is an extreme honor. Raising Cain was also selected by the White House Social Director, from all bands in Colorado, to play for President Obama in Denver in Feb., 2010.

We are an ultra-professional specialty wedding/event band that excels in: modern pop/Top 40, current hits, classic rock, 70', 80s, 90's, Motown, swing, ballads, modern country, and jazz! Classically-trained members also perform ceremony music at weddings for far less than a separate ceremony group can! Your one-stop shop for greater savings, less hassle. We feature fantastic male and female lead singers, and several virtuoso multi-instrumentalists (9 total instruments on stage). Although we're a six-piece band, it's like having ten pieces for the price of six! We can also add one, two, or three horn players upon demand. As a result, we can cover more music styles and songs than typical bands our size. We are trained announcers, and MC's, per your direction. A state of the art sound and light system round out the amazing experience that is Raising Cain.

With our group, you get professional musicians who dedicate hours to planning, rehearsing, and preparing to make your event a smashing success. Our comprehensive song lists cover all the popular genres, from rock to pop to jazz to Jewish and ethnic tunes to classical to well, you name it! It is very rare for a five-piece rock/dance band to have members with college-level classical performance training, who can superbly play beautiful classical music for your ceremony on violin, classical guitar, and/or piano, on up to a full string quartet. We do this for 60% off of our normal "ceremony only" rates (if we're already playing your reception). Clients always tell us how much they prefer having just one music contract for everything, not having to worry about multiple bands, and not having to pay minimum trip charges to multiple entities. With us, it's simpler, it's better, and you get way more - for less overall cost!

As total wedding and event pros who have played hundreds of fantastic weddings and events, we, as your band, are also available to provide complimentary assistance to help you plan things and wade through the ocean of details. We provide thoughts, ideas, perspective, and considerations on song selections, timing, flow, order, and any number of things related to extraordinary weddings and events (at no charge, of course). Over and over we have seen what works and what doesn't, year in, year out, regardless of the event or location. We know dozens of little-known strategies that will make a FANTASTIC wedding or event for you!

Raisin Cain were AMAZING!! They were so much fun to work with and had so much energy, they really made the reception. They are an incredibly friendly, professional, and talented group. We would absolutely recommend them to anyone. They have a wide range of music they play and it really got everyone involved, across generations. We haven't stopped getting compliments about how much fun Raisin Cain were and we think it was one of the best decisions that we made!

Only one thing you need to know about this band: You want them to play at your daughter's wedding reception. They played at my daughter's large wedding and were fantastic! They showed their fine musical talent with a wide variety of styles, tempos, interaction with the audience, and didn't miss a single beat. Vocals, guitars, keyboards, drums, horns - every musician was a virtuoso. The whole package was a night of exceptional music. The old folks danced till they got tired and left, and the young folks danced till closing time. This band worked hard to meet all our wishes. Book them.

Absolutely phenomenal. The group did an unbelievable job entertaining our guests; when you hire Raising Cane, you don't just hire a band- it's an all out performance. We (my group, not them) didn't do a great job laying out the venue, and the band got creative and ended up leaving the stage and interacting with the crowd to get everybody engaged. The music was awesome, they sounded unreal, and everybody absolutely loved them. Would hire them in a heart beat. Worth. Every. Freaking. cent.

We booked Raising Cain for an association conference. The conference attendees range in ages and taste; but for the first time in all years of this event we had the majority of people dancing! The band did a great job of getting people hyped up and accommodating song request by the audience. Their voices are amazing! Great to work with and organize with an even better turnout!

This group was perfect! The Raising Cain band really made an impression with our guests! Our small venue had us concerned with how loud the music might be. But never did we have any issues with volume and the music was fantastic. Every member conducted themselves so professionally. They helped with announcements and setting the tone of the evening. The band has awesome stage presence! They had great crowd interaction and really engaged the entire room! We will always use this band! They performed every genre of music flawlessly and their ability to switch from one style to another exemplifies their talent and ability. This is the band you want at your party!

The Band was great! They were so accommodating and easy to work with during the planning stages. At the time of the event, they were professional and full of energy. Our employees loved the event. Raising Cain was even able to get our executives out of their chairs and on to the dance floor! Very Impressed - they were a blast!!
