The Jon Bates Band
THE JON BATES BAND is a phenomenal group of high caliber musicians. They have performed together since 1989, and have played at many prominent music venues, clubs, halls, theaters and exclusive hotels. They have also performed as the featured entertainment aboard many of the most luxurious cruise ships in the world. They have shared billing and/or performed as the back-up musicians for the legendary Bo Diddley, The Temptations, Gatemouth Brown, Jeffrey Osbourne, Richie Havens, Jennifer Holiday, and others. They have entertained at hundreds of parties, festivals, weddings, fundraisers and dinner dances, that have included celebrity guest lists with some of the most prominent names in business, politics and entertainment. Without exception, THE JON BATES BAND makes a party come alive! They musically engage and inspire people to have fun and enjoy themselves! This is a band that can satisfy any musical appetite, and is well known for their extremely diverse repertoire of Classic Rock, Jazz, Latin, Rhythm & Blues, Motown, Funk, Disco, and popular songs from every era, including current hits, traditional Swing standards, Romantic Ballads, Folk, Country, and assorted other world and ethnic styles.

THE JON BATES BAND uses a professional state-of-the-art PA system to present high quality sound, with optimum clarity at an appropriate volume. This also allows clients the option of having digitally mastered CD's played during band breaks, and for those clients who prefer to have "Club Mixes" blended into their overall entertainment package, making the transition between live and pre-recorded dance tracks is never a problem.

THE JON BATES BAND always makes every effort to accommodate a client's wishes and exceed expectations. The standard instrumentation of the core band includes keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, saxophone, and a male and female lead vocalist. Depending on the personal preferences, space, and budget allowances for each event, the size of the band can also be modified to accommodate a more intimate setting when necessary, and/or expanded to a thirteen piece orchestra, with a full horn section and/or other genre specific musicians when circumstances permit.

Once you confirm with THE JON BATES BAND for your event, the date is reserved for only you. The musicians and vocalists represented to you are the same musicians who will actually perform at your event. This is an extremely cohesive band, with a unique and special chemistry. They have developed an extraordinary sound by playing together for years, and are available at a very fair and competitive price.
