Whinin' Cheez...Don't let the name fool you. We are an acoustic trio consisting of male and female vocals, piano, acoustic guitar, mandolin and percussion covering many genres and musical styles from the 50's through today. Our extensive song list features hits that your parents and your children can all agree on...no easy task.
We fully understand the needs of our clients and adjust our set list accordingly...usually starting out at a lower volume so guest can mingle and talk to one another without having to scream over loud music. We can kick it up as the event progresses with dance tunes (Jackson 5, Frankie Valli, etc.) and some of the more rockin' material (Pearl Jam, Allman Bros, Neil Young, etc).
Our sound quality is second to none...pure and natural and our setup is also neat and professional. We do not use pre-recorded tracks or drum machines. Our song selection, humble laid-back stage presence and warm sound conveys the comfort of an intimate living room concert.
We arrange our set lists to strike a nice balance between the male and female vocals, harmonies and classic duets. We do the same with the instrumentation...mixing the James Taylor and Neil Young guitar driven material with Elton John, Billy Joel and Carole King piano music just to name a few.
Whinin' Cheez will always arrive at your event and set up in a timely fashion ready to start earlier than scheduled if necessary...and extra time is never an issuer. We love what we do !
Thank You for taking the time to check out our profile and we hope you'll consider us for your next event.

I can not say enough good things about this band! From the time that I started planning my wedding until the actual wedding day, I was in frequent contact with them (mainly Bill) over email. Not only were they kind enough to play some instrumental music for my ceremony, but I also asked if they could learn Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters" for my 1st dance. The ceremony music was beautiful, and I was blown away with the way John sang the Metallica song...what a voice!! The entire night my guests could not stop complimenting the band! Their price was reasonable & they were very professional & friendly. Bill, John & their new singer Dayna are truly talented musicians!

They played at my daughters bat mitzvah 11/17/12 and were a huge hit. Very professional showed up on time and the music was incredible. Many of our guests not only commented how great they were, but a few even took their cards and will be hiring them at their kids bar/bat mitzvahs. It goes without saying if you hire them you will not be dissapointed. They will be at my sons bar mitzvah and I am sure at many other's that I attend. - THEY ROCK!!!!!

Whinin' Cheez first performed at my 30th birthday party, and I liked them so much that I had to book them for my husband's! Bill and John geared their setlists toward our personal tastes, and our guests thoroughly enjoyed each song. Additionally, Bill kept the lines of communication open throughout the weeks leading up to the event, so I never had to worry about unanswered questions or requests. I look forward to booking the band again one day in the future!
