project offers the music of ETTA JAMES, CHESS, STAXX, MOWTOWN, ATLANTIC RECORDs, DANCE, CLASSIC ROCK, BLUES, JAZZ, 70'S, and just plane PARTY music!

Everyone still wants a live sound and might not be able to afford it. Also, everyone is tired of attending the same kind of wedding with the same kind of EXPENSIVE dance band that plays the same songs! Make yours intimate and special with THE RAGE PROJECT! Have it jazzy or get ready to dance and party really hard all night long with THE RAGE PROJECT whis is the music of ETTA JAMES and the artist from CHESS, ATLANTIC, MOTOWN RECORDS and more, such as B B KING, MARVIN GAYE, ARETHA FRANKLIN, RAY CHARLES, THE ROLLING STONES, DOOBIE BROTHER, EARTH WIND AND FIRD, SARAH VAUGHN, NATALIE COLE, JANIS JOPLIN and so much more!
