Sean Overington - Guitar, Lead Vocals
Hailing from the same hometown as local favorites Nantucket, Sean grew up on a steady diet of rock and southern rock. However, once he heard another group out of Atlanta–Mother's Finest, he realized that rock could funk too. Picking it up at age 15, he tried to learn everything he could about rock and funk guitar. After forming various bands in his hometown, he moved to Raleigh and continued to play. He has played in a variety of local bands including Stateside, WhiteFly and Time Machine and is a founding member of both Sleeping Booty and Bailey's Comet. He continues to rock and funk with CPB and loves to bring it to every show he plays, no matter what the event.

He played the trumpet throughout middle and high school, and in the Virginia bands Majesty and The High and Mighty, earned him a scholarship to Berklee College of Music. Life took a different direction as he earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering and joined the US Navy. After his service, Ken's career as an engineer and software architect took him around the world, living and playing music in Japan, Italy, and Australia. His family settled in Raleigh in 2001, and he's performed with several bands in the area, joining Central Park Band in 2017.

This band is TOPS! Their versatility, professionalism, and overall talent are stupendous. North Carolina is very lucky to have such an outstanding band. The fact that they can play jazz, motown, classic rock, and contemporary music so well is remarkable. This band is by far the best wedding band I've ever heard. They have my highest endorsement.

WOW! I can't tell you how much our guest enjoyed this band. We had a very diverse group and no matter what song, there was a crowd on the dance floor. Early in the evening they really got the guests moving and didn't stop till the last minute! People are still calling and asking me about the "Central Park Band"! Best Band for any event!!!
