We're a 6-piece live dance/wedding band booking events within a 50-mile radius of Hagerstown, Maryland. Playing under the Everlasting Love Dance Band name, we're a recently formed band. Individually, the members of the group have played several thousand professional gigs. Band leader, Tim Harrison (trumpet, bass guitar, and vocals), formerly played with the top dance band in Baltimore for 10 years, and has more than 2,000 professional gigs under his belt. Elliot Simon, keyboard, received his musical training at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, and was raised by an ASCAP composer dad who wrote for Nat King Cole and others. In addition to keyboard, Elliot sings, plays rhythm guitar, and killer accordion when called upon to play a polka. Our other band members include John Wallace on lead guitar and vocals, Mike D'Onofrio on drums, Connie Castanera singing lead vocals and playing ukulele and backup percussion, and Mary Etta Boesl singing lead vocals and playing ukulele and U-bass.
Generically, we're very much a dance band, with a focus on wedding receptions. The band name and our core repertoire was selected with wedding receptions in mind. That being said, we all read music, and we can customize our repertoire to suit your group. The core repertoire is comprised of the 200 most frequently requested dance songs from all genres and styles.
We have been rehearsing for the last 6 months, and we will be booking gigs starting in 2018. 2018 will be an especially good year for brides and others that choose to book us. As we're getting exposure as a new group in the local market, we'll be providing outstanding entertainment at below market prices.
We expect our new website to be "up" soon. In the meantime, we would be happy to have you sit-it on one of our rehearsals to hear first-hand the quality of the music and to see the great chemistry among members of the band. We look forward to working with you to make your event a memorable one!
