One of the most extraordinary party bands anywhere, THE JON BATES BAND is an amazing group of world class musicians playing for weddings and premier social and corporate events on Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Cape Cod, Newport, and throughout the Northeastern US for more than fifteen years. They have also played at major music venues, clubs, concert halls, and destination events across the globe, entertaining for some of the most prominent names in business, politics and entertainment, and have been the featured entertainment aboard many luxury cruise ships, sharing billing &/or performing as the back-up musicians for the legendary Bo Diddley, The Temptations, Gatemouth Brown, Jeffrey Osbourne, Richie Havens, Roberta Flack, and others. With one of the most diverse repertoires imaginable, covering all genres of music, they are the premier musical entertainment choice for any gala celebration or upscale social event.

Without exception, THE JON BATES BAND makes a party come alive! They musically engage and inspire people to have fun and enjoy themselves! This is a band that can satisfy any musical appetite, and is well known for their wide ranging repertoire of Popular Dance Music, Classic Rock, Jazz, Motown, Latin, Top-40, Old School Soul, Rhythm & Blues, Funk, Disco, Emo, Urban Folk, Country, Ethnic, and just great songs from every era.

THE JON BATES BAND uses a professional state-of-the-art PA system to present high quality sound, with optimum clarity at an appropriate volume. This also allows clients the option of having digitally mastered CD's played during band breaks, and for those clients who prefer to have "Club Mixes" blended into their overall entertainment package, making the transition between live and pre-recorded dance tracks is never a problem.

THE JON BATES BAND always makes every effort to accommodate a client's wishes and exceed expectations. The standard instrumentation of the band is keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, saxophone, and an amazing male and female lead vocalist. Depending on the personal preferences, space, and budget allowances for each event, the size of the band can also be modified to accommodate a more intimate setting when necessary, and/or expanded to a thirteen piece orchestra, with a full horn section and/or other genre specific musicians when circumstances permit.

Once you confirm with THE JON BATES BAND for your event, the date is reserved for only you. The musicians and vocalists represented to you are the ones who will actually perform at your event. This is an extremely cohesive band, with a unique and very special chemistry. They have developed an extraordinary sound by playing together for years, and are available at a very fair and competitive price.
