The Fabulous CruiseTones

Based in Oakland CA



The Fabulous CruiseTones are a popular Bay Area band that plays a wide variety of songs from any decade up to the hits of today. The group is available for parties, weddings, corporate events, festivals and any other occasions. FCT is available in many variations - from two to five players up to as many pieces as your budget can handle. They are an extremely professional, hard working group that would like nothing better than to help make your event the best ever. They can lay back & groove things early, then kick it up when it’s time to get the party rolling.  The CruiseTones are versatile, talented performers with a fabulous sound and a wonderful songlist that also features two other amazing vocalists, LeeAnn Christopherson & Deborah Del Mastro.

Members of the CruiseTones have recorded with or appeared in concert with Huey Lewis, the Doobie Brothers, David Crosby, War, Journey, The Tubes, Tracy Chapman, The Drifters, Grace Slick, Chis Isaak, Muddy Waters, Eddie Money, Delbert McClinton, Maria Muldair, Sugarloaf, Bo Diddley, Sammy Davis Jr, Petula Clark, Jaco Pastorius, Lou Rawls, the Smothers Brothers, Jenny Jones, Narada Michael Walden, Flash Cadillac and the Continental Kids, just to name a few! ;-)

How about a Beach ‘n Dance ‘n Surf Party?!  Put on your Aloha shirts and skirts and hit the beach or ‘hang ten’ on the dance floor as the ‘The Fabulous SurfTones’ play all your favorite Beach Boy and other great Surfin’ Beach Party Tunes.

The Fabulous CruiseTones have long been known for being one of the best ’50s & ’60s bands in the Bay Area, if not all of California!  The ‘Tones’ excel at playin’ the Oldies from when Rock ‘n Roll began with Billy Haley & Elvis right through to Doo Wop, the ‘girl groups’, the Beatles, the Beach Boys, MoTown, other great R’nB and any thing else you can imagine in that great era of music.  Whether you want to hop, bop, twist, psychedelicize or dance until you drop, the cats can ‘get ‘er done’! 😉

Ric & Dana (duo) are available for smaller affairs & budgets, utilizing the same “state-of-the-art” PA and a wonderful Boss drum machine for a great sound & dancing capability, this talented pair of ‘seasoned veterans’ deliver an amazing experience to be shared by crowds of all ages.
Stephanie & Dana - the Dynamic Duo - After leading their own groups for years, Stephanie Teel & Dana Messing discovered a new joy in playing together. While doing a TV show as a duo, they found they 'clicked' and could have a lot of fun, greatly compliment each other and enjoy a full dynamic sound. It also affords them a chance to do a wider variety of songs, many of which are real crowd pleasers. The duo has received rave reviews and enjoyed tremendous success playing parties, weddings, clubs and casinos in the last six years.
