Mischief was founded as an alternative to the "status quo" classic rock cover band. The change was afoot. All we needed was the perfect lineup of professional, committed, fun and ohhh TALENTED musicians. If you build it they will come, right? Come they did in the form of Tommy Vincient, Will Payne, Danielle Santelli, Chris Elrod and Jerry Turmaine. The group quickly gelled into on of South Florida's Premier Rock bands. What you'll notice right off the bat is how the band gets into the "pocket" and cruises into the groove of the music. It's infectious really. Most bands only have one singer, Mischief has all five members singing lead and backing vocals. The Heartbeat comes in the form of our phenomenal bass guitarist. Will slaps the bass better than anybody and pays particular attention to detail. Joining Will in the rhythm section is Jerry Turmaine. Driving the band on drums and percussion. This dynamic duo runs this infectious crazy train. Tommy Vincient comes to us by way of an extensive rock and roll resume including groups such as Heartless, One Red Wall, Martini Band and Far From Grace. His melodic acoustic and shredding guitar solos add that "PUNCH" to the band. The "guy who plays everything else" is Chris Elrod on keyboard. Horn section, guitar, piano, synth and maybe even tuba if we needed one. Standing in the front of the band is our outstanding lead vocalist, Danielle Santelli. Belting out the soulful style of Aretha Franklin with the technical range of Stevie Nicks. She is able to deliver a powerhouse performance that hits you in your toes. Together we are Mischief. We hail from all corners of the United States, infusing the R&B from the West Coast and the Groove from Boston with the energy of New York and the flavor of South Florida.
Are you planning a company party? Wedding? Birthday, graduation, or anniversary party?
If you're hip, ready to dance, and want to hear what's on the radio today - instead of the same tired old "wedding band" repertoire - JIVE is your bet.
Experienced: We are professional musicians. Performing is part of what we do for a living. We aren't new to corporate parties, private parties, weddings or festivals.
Professional: We have pro gear, pro sound, pro attitude, and pro dress (at your request). And we are professional on the back end of things, too - like logistics, communication, planning. The things that can save your sanity... and make or break your party.
Reliable: It goes without saying. On time, every time, ready to play our best for you.
Flexible: We'll work with your vision and your budget, whether it's a small backyard graduation party, a 500-person corporate party, or a 2,000-person festival.
We only use pro gear. JBL powered mains and subwoofers
We can provide anything from a few colored LEDs to make a small party that much more special, to all-out lighting systems with a dedicated lighting engineer. Just let us know what you're looking for and we'll put it together.
DJ & EMCEE SERVICES
We can provide music during our short set breaks - just let us know what you'd like to hear, or leave it up to us. We can also join forces with a DJ to provide the best possible combination of a DJ's infinite playlist and non-stop party, plus the live energy of a live band. And do you need someone to make announcements at the wedding? Yep, we can do that. Or you just want to borrow our wireless microphone to make some announcements and then pass it around for toasts? No problem.
Mischief believes that a party should be for the people. We aim to please. As a totally LIVE band (with no backing pre-recorded tracks), we complete the show through our dynamic and spontaneous ability to READ-&-PLAY-TO-THE-CROWD, an art form in itself. The effect: the band and the crowd become one amazing experience! Mischief understands and practices this concept by playing to the crowd's desires. This means that we can play either, a variety of eras, OR, with an emphasis on one or more eras for your event! We are also known to learn songs for your event, with proper notice.
