Hello there. Thanks for stopping by. You most likely are asking yourself "OK, you and all the other bands say the same thing...you all say you are 'THE BEST'. (Its kind of like a 'participation trophy' in kids soccer') What makes THE TRIP so stinkin' special?"

Fair enough question. Here is why:

1. We have the most positive reviews and booked gigs.
Evidenced by our proven 100% positive '5 Star' track record, we eliminate the risk of having a failed event. At over 200 confirmed bookings on Gigmasters alone, THE TRIP is the MOST BOOKED cover band in Southern California. In addition to Gigmasters dates, we've played 1000s of other events since 2000. Our clients satisfaction is paramount to this success and its reflected in our 100% positive Gigmasters reviews.

2. Our videos and pictures were all captured LIVE.
You should ALWAYS see a band LIVE before you make your final decision. Our photos and videos were all taken at our events. We didn't shoot a video on a rooftop or in a studio with a fake dance floor. Our photos and videos are all just us and our clients having FUN.

3. We are a REAL band not (AN AGENCY).
You'll have no worries knowing that through the entire process from your initial quote to the last song you will be talking with a TRIP band member. We are not a part of a booking agency. We are a real live band. You wont get one of several look alike bands in white shirts and black ties, you get THE TRIP.

Now, on to the details....

MORE ROCK, LESS SHLOCK! You and your guests will be entertained by a high energy, genuine rock band that takes you on a fun-filled musical journey through the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's … as well as today's Top 40 and rock hits. We're one of the most popular booked bands in California and on Gigmasters, have won multiple “Top Rock Cover Band” awards, and were voted best cover band by CBS. We have entertained some pretty famous clients. While performing at his daughter's wedding, we were joined onstage by no other than rock legend Michael Anthony from Van Halen and Chickenfoot. We've also had the honor of being joined by country superstar Toby Keith at his “OK Kids Korral” benefit concert, and Stephen Stills from Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young sat in with us at his Bel Air event.

But enough of that—we'll let our clients do the talking for us. Please read the 100+ unedited testimonials to see rave reviews from so many happy brides, grooms, event planners, and party goers.

Are you planning a corporate event or private party? Concert for your local park? We are the official Los Angeles Dodgers pre-game party band and have rocked the deck of the USS Midway. The world's largest companies have enlisted us to make their events fun, successful, and memorable. We've travelled across the country and rocked hundreds of events for Microsoft, Disney, Lucasfilm, IBM, HP, Sony Pictures, Budweiser, Dell, Cisco, Intuit and many more Fortune 500 companies.

Hundreds of our clients are folks just throwing a party! We are a top choice for any size rock themed party, concert or event, big or small … and we love to play at weddings! Are you a couple who wants something different for your wedding day? Choose us if you don't want the same type of black suit band or DJ that you've seen at every one of your friends' and families' weddings. We have performed at hundreds of weddings and each one has been a unique experience. It's YOUR reception so choose the playlist to your life. If its Maroon 5, Black Keys, Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars or 80s hits, or The Beatles, Stones, AC/DC, Journey, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, FOO Fighters—whatever suits you and your guests. YOU can create the playlist from our songlist of over 250 songs. We will deliver an authentic jive-free concert-quality performance. No tuxedos. No horn section. No backup 'singers'. Oh … and unlike other bands, we have a guy singing “Locked Out Of Heaven”

Along with great reception music we can provide elegant, wonderful ceremony music (Solo Classical and Contemporary Guitar), Cocktail Music (Solo and Duo), Emcee services for reception and activities (free), DJ music—any genre (free), and multi-colored stage lighting.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We are here to help you make your event a success.

Sincerely,
Steve Fazio, Steve Bonino, Erik Johnson, Mike Lewis, Seth Romano

We hired The Trip to play at our wedding and they were awesome! It was so important to my husband and I to find a wedding band that played all the music that we love (all genres). The Trip played everything that we wanted to hear and even played special requests. Everyone could not stop talking about how amazing they were and everyone chanted for an encore at the end of the wedding. We will definitely hire them again for any special event that we have.

Played as a 4 piece band at our wedding at Casa Romantica in San Clemente due to the small stage at the venue. I have seen them at a 5 piece band and was concerned about them coming with only 4. BUT THEY ROCKED THE HOUSE! I got a photo booth, and lets just say I don't have many photos from the booth because everyone was dancing and having a good time. 1,000,000% worth every penny! We had everyone from kids to grandparents on the dance floor ALL NIGHT. Definitely my choice for a band in the OC area. Thanks again guys for the best night of my life!- Charlie

Hire this band ! My wife and I hired The Trip for our Halloween party. The Trip played and performed a wide variety of songs from different decades and genres.. With such an extensive song list, you can work with The Trip to customize your own set-list. All songs performed sounded fantastic ! All of our guests were blown away...You will not be disappointed.
