The ROMANTICS FOR LOVERS PAST PRESENT & FUTURE specializes in creating magic moments and excitement. We are after all ROMANTICS!

WHAT DO WE DO?
The ROMANTICS are offered as a quintet, quartet or trio to be more economical and intimate. We are standing by for your Wedding entertainment or to serve as a cover band. We focus on your event and take pride in customizing our performance to fit your needs. As a Wedding music band we have great Wedding singers who are experienced and can sing in a number of languages. As you will see from our videos we are great as a Jazz Band, Rock Band, Beach, Americana and Traditional Jazz Band.

WHERE HAVE WE PERFORMED?
The ROMANTICS are favorites with the Jazz Club of Sarasota and recently performed their Jazz Festival where we featured John Lamb who was bassist for Duke Ellington. We are performing at Vinoy Renaissance in St. Pete, Woody's River Roo in Ellenton and St. Valentine's day at Captiva Island. The ROMANTICS served as the House band at Coolinary on Main Street, Sarasota and Amore by Andrea (5 Star Restaurant) Longboat Key. We have performed at a variety of venues including , Tampa Museum of Art, Ringling College of Art & Design, Hilton Downtown, Tampa, Ybor City, Z's on Main Street, Harbour Island Tampa and Fat Tuesday at Duval's Fresh Seafood. I have also served as sideman for many regional bands and acts including NuJazz (Smooth Jazz, Second Line, R&B), Stone Crab Steve Arvey (Beach, Blues, Rock), The Hoo Doos (Louisiana Jazz, Blues, Rock), Nexxlevel (R&B), Democracy (Reggae) and Smash (Rock).

WHY IS THAT IMPORTANT?
Experience has taught us that the primary genre you need from a party band for hire, is sometimes just not enough. A Wedding live band often requires music for 3 generations. Versatility is a valuable and challenging quality for your band to have.
WHERE ARE WE FROM?
I owned and performed with The Leon Merian Band (16 piece big band). Leon was a famous sideman and lead trumpeter for Elvis, Sinatra and The Burt Parks Orchestra where his 2nd and 3rd trumpeters were Doc Severinsen and Clark Terry. These guys later became the Tonight Show Band. Leon was in fact replaced by Louis Armstrong on the famous Worldwide Ambassadors Tour.

The Romantics should be called The Fantastics! We hired them hoping to to get some local attention from the bars in Ybor City and they score A Great write up in The Tampa Bay Times with Pictures!!! They not only blew the roof off all the taverns they went to but they also tied this into playing the 71st Annual Fiesta Day in Ybor City !!! Talk about publicity, this is fantastic. Many thanks to this band of professionals. They really came through!
