Let's face it. The goal of every party, celebration & special occasion is to have a great time. Finding a band that can complement and create that exciting, energetic & fun atmosphere is easy when you choose Attraction. Crisp harmonies, a dynamic stage show, a packed dance floor, attention to detail...this 8-12pc pro dance band performs EVERYTHING: Top 40, Motown, Beach, Soul, Classic Rock, Oldies, Retro 70's & 80's, Jazz & Cocktail music, Country and even a little Reggae! The band mantra is NO-CHEESE!

To have performed dozens of events from New York City to San Juan, Puerto Rico to Nice, France is a feat matched by only a few bands. To have performed full time for more than 15 years says a lot for this band's success. Attraction have performed for presidential candidates, governors, corporate groups, anywhere that great music and a great time was the goal. One event planner even flew the band to San Juan, Puerto Rico to insure a flawless party. Not too bad! The entire band has passports!

With Attraction you'll notice the big difference - crisp harmonies, a high energy stage show, state-of-the-art equipment, attention to detail and clean cut performers with a desire to please. Of course these guys and gals are talented, but experienced as well and it pays off. They can shift gears in an instant delivering what every event needs. There will be a song and a dance for everyone - slow dance to upbeat top 40. Don't be surprised if you see the flower girl or ring bearer jamming' on a tambourine and cowbell! The band insist everyone have a great time!

Not only is Attraction extremely entertaining and engaging, they're easy to work with, too! Band leader Dave Barton will happily work with you to ensure you're happy with the song selection prior to your event - including special requests or if someone wants to sit in and jam with the band. He's exceptionally detail oriented and will work with you or your event coordinator to ensure a good flow & momentum and maximize the most music during the course of your event. Their state-of-the-art sound system is always at the volume level that suits you, and you can always count on the band looking great in sharp.

Want a larger band? Attraction can add a horn section, too! Weddings often require a band that can easily move between light background music to high-energy, raise the roof dance music; from romantic ballads to get-everyone-on-the-floor party hits. Attraction provides top quality fun, music and attention to detail.

Attraction can announce your wedding party as the enter the reception. Attraction will take breaks when you are cutting your cake or taking pictures to play as much music as possible. Attraction will perform fun tunes for your bouquet toss and garter traditions and Attraction will happily make any announcements you may require during the course of the reception. For events as varied as upscale weddings to backyard throw downs -- Attraction can cover it all!

    if you want your dance floor packed

    HIRE ATTRACTION!! They were an absolute blast and our dance floor was packed all night. They are incredibly talented and cover a wide variety of genres that will keep guests of all ages on the dance floor. They were so fun and made my husband and I feel like rock stars. Our guests are still raving about our band and I wish we could party with them again. They were super easy to work with and accommodating as we had to reschedule due to COVID. Through their questionnaire they are somehow able to nail your playlist. Seriously look no further.

    Danced ALL night! 10/10 recommend

    We worked with Attraction and had to change times/venues multiple times due to COVID. Attraction was flexible and professional throughout it all. Dave, the band leader, even came to our final details meeting at the venue (all the way to the Triangle, NC from Richmond) to check out the venue and make sure that we had all our details worked out - he really went above and beyond!

    And the dance party was AMAZING. The band put up ropes so that we could remain 6 ft away from them. Our guests wore masks on the dance floor, and a lot of people stood off to the side to avoid the crowd, but that didn't limit the party at all. The energy from Attraction fueled our dance party all night! Every part of the band was fantastic - vocals, trumpet, guitar, bass, drums, keys, and more!

    We are so grateful that Attraction helped us to safely celebrate with so much energy and oomph! I wish I could get married again, just to sign and dance the night away with Attraction again.
