The band started as The Drive, and now is known as The Loafers. The band features a lineup of some of the finest musicians in central Ohio whose main purpose is to play songs that get everyone on their feet dancing( at receptions and corporate parties ) to a rock and country band format for festivals or concerts.

The Penny Loafers, formally, The Drive were amazing! The band was rocking & our wedding guests loved them! The light set-up they bring is awesome & worth their fee alone. The music they played between sets kept people dancing! Like any party, some guests didn't dance, but they even said how awesome the band & music was! We did a fake out for our first dance, start with a recorded slow song that ‘malfunctioned’ & the band ‘had to’ play for us. The song 500 Miles was the song we wanted & it wasn’t a song they knew, but learned it for us with specific cuts to fit with our dance. It went so perfectly & wowed our guests! They are great! Book them now, you won’t regret it!

The Loafers’s Response:

Penny and The Loafers would like to thank Brian and Heather and their extended families and guests for an incredible time. This reception was off the scale from one end of the spectrum, which was the elegance of the setting and the decorating, to the other end of the spectrum, which was the fun and creativity shared by the whole gathering(tennis shoes worn by the groom and groomsmen to pottery made by Brian himself given to each and every guest including ourselves, to an incredible fireworks diplay.)If we knew they had this much money we would have doubled our fee!!! Seriously, though,we had a fabulous time and wold like to thank both families for their kindness and

The Drive has been playing once a year at our yacht club for a few years now. They put on a great show and play great songs for getting the members out on the dance floor. We will have them back next year and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a good band to get party goers up and dancing!

The Loafers’s Response:

Baypoint Yacht Club has hired us 4 years in a row and has always made us feel very welcome. We've come to know some of these people personally and always look forward to returning. Can't say enough about all the fun we have there. Next year will be 5 years, so apparently it's a good fit! Thanks,John,Lynn,Vickie, and David for your hospitality, and tell all the members HELLO! Do tell Lisa and Anna I wish them well!! Thanks, again, Scott Ridenour (Penny and The Loafers- formerly The Drive)
