Wright Side Up
Music for people who LOVE music.
We are a group of professional musicians who have performed all over the US and Canada, including opening acts for musical legends: Ray Charles, Kenny Chesney, The Police, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Marilyn McCoo and The Pointer Sisters.
With over 25 years in the music business, including national touring acts, and well over 800 songs on our request list, we know what great music is, and we have the talent and experience to play it right! That¡¦s what our group is all about.
We've performed in 46 US States in such renowned venues as: Astoria World Manor, Essex House, Biltmore & the Waldorf Astoria, resorts such as Greenbrier (WV), Nemacolin & Bedford Springs (PA), hotels like the Ritz-Carlton, Hotel DuPont, Grand Hotel (MI), Sagamore (NY) and Hotel Hershey, and landmarks like the National Constitution Center, The Franklin Institute, Rockefeller Center and the Lincoln Center.
We¡¦ve played casinos in Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Reno and Lake Tahoe. We¡¦ve been onstage with Donald & Ivana Trump (separately of course), Bill Cosby, and Pennsylvania governors Ed Rendell & Mark Schweiker, as well as former president George W. Bush. We¡¦ve performed for Mercedes Benz USA, IBM, AAA, AMWAY (national convention), Rotary International (East Coast conference), Caterpillar, Bank Of America, Hershey Park, GIANT Foods, Weis Markets, Ingersoll-Rand & Wachovia, to name a few.
We are fully insured, self-contained (with all the equipment we need), punctual and absolutely dependable. We love what we do, and we always have fun with our music and our audience, but we also are business people who understand that you can¡¦t afford to take a chance with a band that drinks, shows up late, is dressed inappropriately, plays at the wrong volume or can¡¦t play the music you need. We even create special arrangements of music for themed events (cartoons, TV shows, sports themes, award music, etc.).
Our bookings are most often comprised of corporate events, weddings, anniversaries, private parties and themed events for people who are looking for something special, professional and more versatile than other groups can provide.
For maximum versatility, we can vary the size of the band to suit your venue and the number of people in attendance as well as your musical tastes (rock, latin, jazz, oldies, etc.) and the energy level that you are looking for. Available ensembles range from duo to sextet and prices vary accordingly. With a duo you will get myself on (keyboards, bass, alto, tenor, soprano saxophones and vocals), and your choice of a female singer who plays light percussion, or a guitarist (electric, jazz archtop & acoustic guitars). To that we will add a drummer, a latin percussionist and a trumpet/flugelhorn player (wonderful for people who like jazz, smooth jazz and the energy of a live horn section).
The audio samples you will listen to are our actual 'live' sound. We take full advantage of the best of modern music technology to provide the sound of a full band in a smaller group. This way we can keep the prices down, the setup smaller, and the volume under control (something most bands don't do). As we add more performers, we dispense with the electronics and what you hear is the unmatched quality of live, top-tier artists at their musical best.
Most bands have one or two kinds of music that they perform best and are comfortable with. Our tremendous experience allows us to play anything from jazz & smooth jazz (perfect for the cocktail hour) to standards, rock and roll, oldies, country, island, disco, funk, strict-tempo ballroom rhythms and high-energy dance music and roll from one style to another all evening long while keeping the overall sound and volume consistent and under control. We can play music that everyone can dance to and still keep the older folks happy with fresh versions of classic tunes from the 5
