The Real Deal Band and Show consists of a 9-12 piece band with (3) strong front line vocalists. (2 female and one male) Our front line of vocalists are energetic, and are capable of engaging the crowd with their music. The Band can really crank out some good tunes. We play Old School R&B and have been known within the Washington, D.C, and surrounding Maryland areas for 5 years. We can be funky, jazzy, we can rock the house, we can perform oldies from the 60's and 70's, and 80's, with old school ballads that will make you go back down memory lane, and say "Oh yeah, I remember that song!" The Real Deal Band speaks for itself, we can pump up your next party, cabaret, disco, community event, and more. We have played for Showmobiles during the summer months, and recently played for a cabaret in Silver Spring, Maryland. Our future events will be taking place in Mt Airy, Maryland and also, the American Legion cabaret that we are sponsoring in December, 2011. The group practices once to twice a week, and we upgrade our song list to accommodate our next event. We play songs like Al Green's How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas Heatwave, Just a Fool in Love by Tina Turner, Chaka Khan's Sweet Thing, Mother's Finest, Love Changes, Otis Redding's Dock of the Bay, James Brown's, Sex Machine and Funky Good Time, The Horse by Cliff Nobles, Average White Band School Boy Crush, Aretha Franklin's Do Right Woman, It's Love by Jill Scott, It's a Man's World by Man's World by James Brown, you get the picture, right? We have an in-house manager, Mr. Gus Williams, who is in charge of making sure we have enough microphones, amps, and scheduling of upcoming gigs. He really keeps us motivated and is an excellent manager. We also provide DJ music for your next cabaret, wedding reception, disco, etc. We have 3 dynamic horn players, a slammin' drummer, a bad conga player who can also provide vocals, a bad bass player, who can really thump those strings, and two awesome guitar players who, in my opinion, are bad as they wanna be. For myself, I love to hear these two guys, Tee and Darnell), play at rehearsals and gigs. They make those instruments scream !!!! No joke !!! We get lots and lots of requests to play at various events, even out of town. We like the more mature crowd, people who want to party and have fun. If you, as the booking agent decide that you would like to hire us for your next engagement, we strive to tailor our song list to fit your requests. Not too many people are disappointed with our sound. We look forward to being the Real Deal at your next event !
