Hi, we are THE HOME TOWN BOYZ and we play a variety of country, bluegrass, classic rock and more. We are very audience friendly and a lot of fun. Heck, even Elvis makes an appearance at all of our shows. We play the good old 50's and 60's rock n roll and country along with some great fiddle and banjo bluegrass tunes and some 70's and 80's tunes mixed in for fun. . Five seasoned musicians, you will be very happy with us. We love parties, clambakes, festivals, fairs, weddings, etc. We may even make the audience laugh with a joke or two. We promise a good time. Everyone in the band is super friendly and very easy to work with. Our desire is to give you 110% of our energy, passion and heart. We will work super hard for your event and we promise to bring a lot of smiles and fun to your crowd. We are very versatile with our sound. We can jump from bluegrass to country to rock n roll and more. Of course we will always work with you to play what you would like to hear. We can get the crowd dancing all night with our guitar and fiddle tunes and we can bring out the slow dancing couples with some cheek to cheek ballads. We are very professional in our approach. We will arrive early, dress appropriately for the occasion, and play as long as you need us to.
All five of us play music and perform because we absolutely love it. We don't consider this work or a job, it is a labor of love and a privilege to play at someone's event. please check us out, you will be very happy with us.. . we promise...thanks

The Hometown Boyz were fabulous for our daughter's wedding!!! We couldn't have asked for a better band! With the wedding reception ending up indoors due to the NY rainy weekend, the Boyz had the crowd going by the 2nd song! Dancing & singing, everyone had a great time! I'm still hearing how fun & entertaining they we're for the evening. The band is highly recommended for any event. Joe & the boyz were all very accommodating & sweet, wonderful to work with! :-)
