Formed in Philadelphia in 1995 by bassist/leader, Carl Smith, and late keyboardist, Bill “Wolf” Young, The Quake (aka The Monday Night Live Band) of the now defunct Comcast SportsNetone hour variety “sports-tainment” show, Monday Night Live. Because of these experiences, the band has a wealth of knowledge at their disposal, and of course, the music and presentation are without question, spectacular.

The Quake is not an entertainment agency, a production company with multiple bands, or mercenary musicians that tend to get “mixed and matched”. The Quake is a professional, upscale, special events band. The band that you hire is the one that will perform at your event.

ALL AUDIO SAMPLES are raw, untouched and un-mixed. ALL WERE RECORDED LIVE. What you see and hear is what you. There are no audio tracks of the original artist playing along with The Quake in the background.

ALL VIDEO SAMPLES were done live. There are no elaborate sets or flashing lights to distract from or cover up any performer deficiencies.

Here's what just a few of our past clients have said:

Dear Carl,

I am sitting here with my husband and dear friend, Barb, who officiated the wedding. We keep coming back to your band being one of the highlights of Katie and Paul's wedding. We loved your music. We would be happy to endorse your band if that is something that you would like.

You were all so professional and amazing musicians! Thank you -

Carl and the Quake played at my daughter's wedding reception for 190 people in a tent at the base of Elk Mountain on Sept 6, 2014. They were absolutely incredible. Everyone was dancing all night and comments from the folks attending were that it was their favorite band ever! Actually some folks knew too that this was the SECOND engagement with the Quake for the Young family. Carl and his group also played at our son's wedding in 2010. We previewed multiple bands before making our choice in 2010. Carl and his band are simply the best dance/wedding band in the greater Philadelphia area. We recommend them highly as do our family and friends!

Hey Carl,
We just got back from Antigua last night... You definitely exceeded our expectations!!! We knew months ago when he first heard you guys play, that you would be the perfect fit for what we were trying to achieve (in terms of bringing a party to our guests). As you know I have a big family, (260 total guests attended the reception), and over the years there have been many weddings...I cannot tell you how many of them came up to me and said this was the best reception they had been to. I also had friends in from California who did know about the Quake and they were blown away by the musicianship, the play list, and overall sound you guys brought to the party. Pam & I knew that we wanted a bash, and you guys made that happen - all you had to do was look around the room, the dance floor was packed all night - beginning to end! The night was perfect & I can't thank you enough for delivering the way you did. It was first class all the way, and I know that we will be seeing & hearing you guys again. Much love from

Carl,

Steph and I have been meaning to contact you guys but things have just been so hectic in our life this past month since we got back from our honeymoon. We were both beyond satisfied with the job that you did at our reception! The comments and compliments about how great
you guys were have not stopped. My father tells me every time I speak with him that his friends are still talking about how they have never been to a wedding with such a good band that kept the crowd so involved.

Also, we wanted to say that you all did a tremendous job with our first dance song and the song for Steph and her father. Please feel free to use us as a reference for anyone inquiring about your band. We would be happy to share what a terrific job you did with anyone who asks.

Thanks again for everything!

Cart Smith and The Quake,
We can not say enough about the performance of The Quake at Stephanie's wedding reception. From the ambience of the cocktail hour thru the very tasteful dinner set we were very impressed. ……but when the party really got started The Quake ROCKED!! Our guests (literally from all over the country) could not believe the band…..a non stop dance floor. I must have heard a hundred times “where did you get these guys”

Carl's planning, all of the *** staff, and the members of The Quake went above and beyond and made our day. If anyone ever needs a reference, the Bane family is on board 110%

Best regards to all…..thanks again.
