VIVA is a five piece band perfect for any event or venue. We are a dance driven cover band with strong roots in Classic Rock, Motown, and Rhythm and Blues. VIVA replicates the look, sound and feel of the original groups from all the different decades. With vintage guitars, bass and drums and authentic keyboards, the sound is so close, you will think you travelled back in time. With four lead vocalist, the range we are able to cover is unbelievable. This is as real as it gets. One of our members is the original guitar player from the Miami Sound Machine. Another member is the fill-in drummer for many national acts such as Vanilla Fudge and the Association. You can view the original videos of our members performing with these bands on our website. We have performed with over 60 National Acts ranging from STYX to Three Dog Night, to Kansas and Cheap Trick. As for playing music from the 60's, 70's, and 80's, we are the best at it. We grew up listening to all the hits from all the decades so it only makes sense that we know those songs like the back of our own hands. These veteran musicians have developed an amazing on-stage chemistry and pride themselves on giving their audience an incredible high-energy, qualitative stage show from start to finish.
Also, our state-of-the-art sound system not only provides the highest quality sound of our performances, but also is available for toasts and music during breaks. VIVA can also act as the Master of Ceremony providing smooth transitions during the evening. Thank you for considering us,
The VIVA band
