Why 1st Generation Band? Well, we are the WINNERS of TWO of Gig-MASTERS'S 2011 & 2012 Awards (GOLDEN BEST BAND AWARD and The RISING 5 STAR AWARD for being the TOP Booked Motown Band). WOW! What an accomplishment 2 years in a row!!! 1st Generation knows how to keep em on the dance floor all night long!! We are also known as "Da ROCK-IT-SHIP" because the dance floor is always shaking and moving like it's about to take off!!!

1st Generation provides a wide variety of musical entertainment. Our diverse repertoire is a mixture of 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, and 'TODAY's TOP 40 HITS'; you, will experience all of this within the same night… which is a breath of fresh air. We don't put limits on what we can do.

Now, we have the ability for you to experience the same thing with 1st Generation Band in the comfort of your very own living room via the internet in real time!!!

Merging all of this with the Electrifying strong voice of our female vocalist Reci Reign, her diverse vocal style is in the likes of Tina Turner and Diana Ross. She sang the National Anthem for the Boxing Assoc/ESPN and for The Atlanta Hawks @ Atlanta's Phillips Arena. Reci also performs with the all-girl recording group Klymaxx. Oh boy..., our band also includes the awesome vocalist Dennis L. Taylor, the Nephew of the "Late Legendary Blues Singer Johnnie Taylor". His style is like Lionel Richie of The Commodores, R. Kelly, Robin Thicke, and Marvin Gaye.

We specialize in providing music for all occasions such as: Corporate events, Concerts, Weddings, Wedding Receptions, Rehearsal Dinners, Bar Mitzvahs, Parties and more. What makes us special?

First Generation, Wow! What a BLAST we had at our outdoor wedding reception on 10.13.2012! Morris was so very accommodating and prompt from the start. We worked together to come up with the perfect songlist! Everyone LOVED the band and we had so many guest dancing all night! We (the bride and a few bridesmaids) were even spotted dancing on stage once or twice. ;-) I look forward to booking 1st generating in the future! So many of my friends (future brides!) loved the band and I am hoping they will use them as well! Thanks again, Morris and Band! Sarah Beth and Doug

1st Generation Band was the perfect band to play at our wedding. From the start, they were very professional and very quick to answer any questions we had. Mr. Drane was an excellent manager and helped ease the stress that planning a wedding can bring. They were easy to deal with and very accomidating to our requests. At the wedding, they were amazing! Their song choices were exactly what we wanted and we have been receiving comments about how awesome the band was. They will keep everyone dancing and having a great time. I would recommend 1st Generation Band to anyone. They professionalism, exciting atmosphere, and talent are unmatched. Thanks so much!!

What a time! Wow. They were eager to please, and easily learned our "special request songs.". The manager, Mr. Drane, stayed in touch with us during the months before the wedding. The band arrived in town well in advance of the wedding. I would recommend these folks any time, anywhere.
