"A Sought Out City" is Central PA's dynamic variety dance band that will be sure to make your event an exciting and memorable one, providing high quality musical entertainment.
S.O.C. can be "all things" for all musical occasions: with the ability to scale down to a small duo or trio to fit your venue or budget, or full band with professional sound and lighting and even live videography from our on stage screens!
If you want your occasion to get your dancers on the floor and keep them there, look no further. Or if you're looking for quality listening entertainment for a concert, or even background setting, SOC is for you. Strong male and female vocals gives S.O.C. great depth and diversity, as well as supporting instrumentation (with lead/acoustic guitar, bass, multiple keyboards/piano, percussion, and flute. Additional instrumentation, such as sax and/or brass are available upon request). We have state of the art sound equipment with electric drums, no guitar or bass amps (all direct) and no bulky floor monitors which means no sound issue/feedback; our keyboard player performs with three different keyboards! Also female singer is professional flautist.
S.O.C. performs for all types of venues: restaurants, corporate events, country clubs, night clubs, casinos, fairs and festivals, wedding, and churches. From styles of top 40 current hits, to classic rock to oldies and motown, to disco, to modern and classic country to standards and ballads, we'll provide something everyone will enjoy.
One of their most favorite venues is wedding receptions, where SOC's female vocalist has over 20 years experience helping the bride and groom make their day the most special one, not only by providing entertainment, but also coordinating, emceeing… start to finish. We can provide 'light' singing or instrumental entertainment for cocktail or dinner hour, then take the next step with getting your guests on the dance floor, and keeping them there, while providing announcements, keeping the event flowing smoothly, so that the couple can enjoy their most special day. If you have a special 1st dance song, we'll be happy to learn it; or Lisa Ann can help you with some ideas/selections. Or for a father/daughter or other special song, we'll be delighted to accommodate your wishes.
Some past experiences: sang/performed for 1993 Presidential Inaugural Ball in Washington DC; opened before Jerry Lee Lewis at Chesapeake Bay Blues Fest in 2002 of audience over 15,000 in Sandy Point, MD; showcased Patsy Cline hits at Opryland Hotel, as well as famous Tootsies on Music Row in Nashville; also perform American Music/Multicultural Fest and Kipona on a regular basis for the city of Harrisburg. S.O.C. travels to various beaches providing concert bandstand entertainment as well as casinos with high energy show, keeping the dancing going.
Be assured that your event will be most exciting and enjoyable yet tasteful, as we will not make any inappropriate language or explicit music a part of their performance.
We look forward to working with you and for your audience we serve!
