We booked Stephen Lee's band for our son's rehearsal dinner party this past weekend and we were extremely impressed and delighted with the band. We were looking for a 2 piece band for mostly background music and Stephen was extremely flexible in their ability to provide a larger or smaller band depending on the need. All of the songs they played through the evening were beautifully done and we had many compliments.. At the end of the party they had everyone out of their seats dancing and it was a wonderful way to kick off our destination wedding weekend. I would highly recommend this band to anyone looking for great entertainment for their party or wedding!!
In most cases we perform as the full four-piece band which consists of electric guitars, acoustic guitars, bass guitar, piano/keyboards, harmonicas, hand percussion, and drums. In SLB we all sing so you'll hear great harmonies in our performances. Also, depending on the event type and requests of our clients we have a full horn section, female vocalists, and Country musicians that we can add. For many private parties and corporate events we can perform as a five piece jazz band down to an acoustic duo. And as a side note we also can provide DJ services!
As band leader I'm happy to act as MC handling introductions and announcements throughout the evening. We always have an additional mic for anyone wanting to make a toast or welcome. During breaks we keep a great iPod playlist on to keep the party going. We provide all of the PA system as well as our own sound engineer to ensure we give the best sound level and quality for each venue.
Our repertoire covers a wide range of music including everything from classic artists/bands such as The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Elton John, Billy Joel, Van Morrison, The Rolling Stones, Otis Redding, Frank Sinatra, and Michael Buble to modern pop artists like Jason Mraz, Train, John Mayer, Darius Rucker, Maroon 5, Coldplay, Matchbox Twenty, Keith Urban, and Bruno Mars. We also cover all the great 70s dance hits and 80s anthems by Michael Jackson, Journey, Bon Jovi, Kool and the Gang, The Police, etc.
We customize our music specifically for each client's event and in addition to our extensive playlist we can add any song requests (e.g. wedding first dance, father-daughter dance, mother-son dance). No matter the event you are hosting The Stephen Lee Band brings an exciting, professional, and top-quality entertainment experience you and your guests will remember for years to come!
