About Us

What We Do

We are a quality driven, professional cover band in Phoenix, AZ that can mold a song list to fit any party or event.  We can play anything from Top 40 Hits, Rock, Pop, Motown or Country.  We are comprised of experienced musicians that highly prioritize sounding good and having fun.  We have our own high quality PA system, lighting, and we can perform DJ and MC services as well.  We want your party/event/night at the bar to be the one that everyone is talking about. Of course, results always speak for themselves and that is what we focus on.  We are always open to any venue and any budget.  Click the button below and lets have some fun!
