Express Band

Based in Whittier CA



Express has been serenading audiences with a delightful blend of German and American music, sprinkled with a hint of Latin rhythms, for over three decades. Our ensemble consists of four talented musicians, each bringing their unique flair to the stage with keyboard, guitar, bass, and drums. To add an extra layer of musical magic to our performances, we are honored to welcome two exceptional special guests—a talented saxophonist and a gifted violinist—who join us on select occasions for those truly special events.

Our repertoire is as diverse as our audience's tastes. We take pride in offering a wide range of musical genres, including beloved German standards, timeless American classic rock, the heartwarming melodies of classic country, and even some sultry Latin favorites. Variety is not just our spice of life; it's our specialty. For over three decades, we've been moving feet and inspiring dance floors to life with our rich selection of tunes, including polkas, waltzes, swing, rhumbas, cha-chas, tangos, and country line dances, among others.

It's important to note that Express is not a strolling band. We require a dedicated stage, flat cement surface, or deck area, ideally measuring at least 16 feet wide and 5 to 6 feet deep, to provide you with the best musical experience. Our commitment to delivering top-quality entertainment means that we have a minimum performance time of three hours, which includes our meticulous setup and tear-down process.

Our pricing structure varies based on the size and scope of your event. For larger gatherings exceeding 100 attendees and those hosted in spacious venues, additional sound reinforcement may be necessary to ensure everyone enjoys the music to the fullest.

Express is proudly based in Southern California, with our members residing in both Orange and Los Angeles Counties. While we occasionally make exceptions, our preferred performance radius extends to approximately 40 miles from the enchanting world of Disneyland.
