We've hired Yesterdays News on several occasions over the past few years. Always a great experience! They've never had to cancel a date, always show up on time, their song list continues to grow, and they continually update their equipment. Their sound is great and their versatility / adaptability is amazing. They have even agreed to learn new songs and tailored songs to fit the event. Yesterdays News always gives us our money's worth and their fees are very competitive. We're looking forward to next time.

Art & Joe with Yesterday News were great! They played are our backyard BBQ / family reunion. They brought tamborines, maracas, etc for the guests to play along with for some interactive fun. If you like Beatles, Eagles, Tom Petty, Jimmy Buffet - classic rock - you'll love these guys and their acoustic flavor of these classic tunes. Sound was great, and EVERY ONE of my guests raved about the band!! Very affordable - and a class act! If you're on the fence, HIRE them, you won't be disappointed!! A+++++ all around!

Booked Yesterdays News as a surprise for a neighborhood BBQ, known as Meatapahlooza. The hosts were thrilled! The band’s sound quality was very accommodating. Conversations could be heard without having to scream over the music. Being a backyard event, this was huge! Guests enjoyed their style and music. Comments are still made about Art’s customized rendition of “Margaritaville”, personalized for the hosts. Art and Joe are professional, yet down-to-earth guys. We definitely made the right decision with this duo! Check out Yesterdays News. You won’t be disappointed. They’re the perfect addition to any event!
