Dance Band from Jersey City, NJ - Will travel up to 10 miles
BOOKED {{daysSinceLastBookingText()}}

$800 - $3600 per event
If you seeking something other than your average cover band, look no further. An amazing live phenomenon and 6-11 members deep, blue number nine can pare down to an instrumental quartet and then later, it's all about fun. It's like a party onstage whenever this tight and lively unit kicks out their original jams and creative re-makes.

Formed in Jersey City in 1995, with members from NJ and NY, blue number nine is lead by Stefanie Seskin (lead vocals/flute/songwriter), a former soccer jock who holds a Master's in Communications and is a 2001, 2002 & 2003 recipient of the ASCAPLU$ songwriter award from ASCAP in the Popular category.

The music is a blend of eclectic, danceable yet listenable funk, jazz, pop and all manner of rhythm and groove and at times, they bring in horns and/or keyboards to fatten up the mix further. blue number nine has released 3 CD's to date and has toured from New Jersey to Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Carolina, South Carolina and points in between.

blue number nine is the first independent band ever to receive an
endorsement from Ultimate Support, creators of guitar, speaker, microphone and other stands. The band opened for Chicago at Jones Beach in 2001 & 2000 and opened for Average White Band in Stamford, CT in 2006.
