Alligator Beach is a perfect choice for a New Orleans/Mardi Gras themed party or as an alternative to the typical top 40 dance band. The songs we play are both familiar and unique at the same time.
A concert is an exchange of energy between the band and the audience. When AB takes the stage we throw out energy like cheap beads and feed off the energy that the audience gives back. It starts with a secondline groove. We add a funky rhythm section, some tasty horns & a sexy singer. The band and the audience start to bounce and the party begins.
Alligator Beach is a 6-8 piece, LA based, New Orleans funk/party/dance band. We play classic NOLA songs from the Neville Brothers and The Meters, other pop songs that we change up and “take to New Orleans” and a growing list of originals.
