Great, fun, dance cover music is our hallmark! To witness a Raising Cain show is to see ultra-polished entertainers, with professional choreography and dance moves that get your whole crowd up on their feet! To see for yourself, check out our new Live Video under the "Media" tab above! We're also one of the most decorated bands in the Rocky Mtn. region. Gigmasters awarded Raising Cain their 2011 Top Star award as the "Best Variety Band" in the entire nation! With thousands of bands across the U.S. in this category, it is an extreme honor. Raising Cain was also selected by the White House Social Director, from all bands in Colorado, to play for President Obama in Denver in Feb., 2010.
We are an ultra-professional specialty wedding/event band that excels in: modern pop/Top 40, current hits, classic rock, 70', 80s, 90's, Motown, swing, ballads, modern country, and jazz! Classically-trained members also perform ceremony music at weddings for far less than a separate ceremony group can! Your one-stop shop for greater savings, less hassle. We feature fantastic male and female lead singers, and several virtuoso multi-instrumentalists (9 total instruments on stage). Although we're a six-piece band, it's like having ten pieces for the price of six! We can also add one, two, or three horn players upon demand. As a result, we can cover more music styles and songs than typical bands our size. We are trained announcers, and MC's, per your direction. A state of the art sound and light system round out the amazing experience that is Raising Cain.
With our group, you get professional musicians who dedicate hours to planning, rehearsing, and preparing to make your event a smashing success. Our comprehensive song lists cover all the popular genres, from rock to pop to jazz to Jewish and ethnic tunes to classical to well, you name it! It is very rare for a five-piece rock/dance band to have members with college-level classical performance training, who can superbly play beautiful classical music for your ceremony on violin, classical guitar, and/or piano, on up to a full string quartet. We do this for 60% off of our normal "ceremony only" rates (if we're already playing your reception). Clients always tell us how much they prefer having just one music contract for everything, not having to worry about multiple bands, and not having to pay minimum trip charges to multiple entities. With us, it's simpler, it's better, and you get way more - for less overall cost!
As total wedding and event pros who have played hundreds of fantastic weddings and events, we, as your band, are also available to provide complimentary assistance to help you plan things and wade through the ocean of details. We provide thoughts, ideas, perspective, and considerations on song selections, timing, flow, order, and any number of things related to extraordinary weddings and events (at no charge, of course). Over and over we have seen what works and what doesn't, year in, year out, regardless of the event or location. We know dozens of little-known strategies that will make a FANTASTIC wedding or event for you!
