JIVE is the top Florida band playing modern party music - Current Hits, Disco, 80's dance, and rock cover songs.
JIVE packs both male and female lead vocals, two keyboards, bass and drums, and backup vocalists into just four human beings to cover the most popular party hits. From modern pop/R&B/dance artists like Robin Thicke, Daft Punk, Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 to classics from Kool & The Gang, KC & The Sunshine Band, Donna Summer and Michael Jackson, JIVE gives you no choice but to dance your booty off.
We Keep It Moving! Like a DJ, we keep people on the dance floor. We know that even a few seconds between songs lets the energy drop. But we have an energy and presence unlike any DJ, since we are live musicians playing live music!
Hot Songs! Music from the radio. Music from the clubs. Songs with tens of millions of YouTube plays. Music out right now... with a smattering of enduring 80's and 90's hits that we just can't leave behind because they always turn people on. This is JIVE music.
Are you planning a company party? Wedding? Birthday, graduation, or anniversary party?
If you're hip, ready to dance, and want to hear what's on the radio today - instead of the same tired old "wedding band" repertoire - JIVE is your bet.
Experienced: We are professional musicians. Performing is part of what we do for a living. We aren't new to corporate parties, private parties, weddings or festivals.
Professional: We have pro gear, pro sound, pro attitude, and pro dress (at your request). And we are professional on the back end of things, too - like logistics, communication, planning. The things that can save your sanity... and make or break your party.
Reliable: It goes without saying. On time, every time, ready to play our best for you.
Flexible: We'll work with your vision and your budget, whether it's a small backyard graduation party, a 500-person corporate party, or a 2,000-person festival.
We only use pro gear. JBL powered mains and subwoofers
We can provide anything from a few colored LEDs to make a small party that much more special, to all-out lighting systems with a dedicated lighting engineer. Just let us know what you're looking for and we'll put it together.
DJ & EMCEE SERVICES
We can provide music during our short set breaks - just let us know what you'd like to hear, or leave it up to us. We can also join forces with a DJ to provide the best possible combination of a DJ's infinite playlist and non-stop party, plus the live energy of a live band. And do you need someone to make announcements at the wedding? Yep, we can do that. Or you just want to borrow our wireless microphone to make some announcements and then pass it around for toasts? No problem.
JIVE believes that a party should be for the people. We aim to please. As a totally LIVE band (with no backing pre-recorded tracks), we complete the show through our dynamic and spontaneous ability to READ-&-PLAY-TO-THE-CROWD, an art form in itself. The effect: the band and the crowd become one amazing experience! JIVE understands and practices this concept by playing to the crowd's desires. This means that we can play either, a variety of eras, OR, with an emphasis on one or more eras for your event! We are also known to learn songs for your event, with proper notice.
