The name GOOD TYMES speaks for itself, they guarantee you a Good Tyme, but they have a good time playing for you as well.
This band is a combination of talent, history, and technology. Even though the birth of "The Good Tymes" was 1996, their interest in music dates back to the late 50's and early 60's. It was then that every neighborhood had at least one garage band playing in it. It was a time when county fairs and high school functions were reasons to have a dance or a "battle of the bands" night. Everyone wanted to play and sound like The Beatles, The Temptations, The Stones, Bill Haley, and the list goes on. Everyone in this band were influenced by the music from that era; swing, blues, do-wop, rock and roll, psychadelic, and even hard rock.
Now, 20 years later, we have found our friendships endured and blossomed, the music sounds better, and is still fun to play. Because of technology we find that not only can we play the songs we so fondly remember, but can also replicate the sound that in the past could only be done by studio musicians. A five piece band can now sound like a full orchestra.
The Good Tymes have shared the stage with the likes of the Duprees, Emeralds, and Soul Cruisers just to name a few. Though mostly known to perform at outdoor concerts and festivals throughout the South Jersey and Philadelphia areas, they also play private venues; weddings and parties as well. Their style of music is from the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's.
