'Jeremy & the Generations' (4-piece or 7-piece Band)
Jeremy has been performing solo and DJing for years and recently noticed a need for another local band – several brides and grooms were hiring bands from out of the area due to a lack of local options. He decided to reach out to some of the most entertaining, talented, and hard-working musicians on the beach to see if they would be interested in trying to put something together to fill this void.
In the winter of 2017, “Jeremy and the Generations” was formed! They came up with the name for two reasons. For starters, the group plays music from today’s hits to the favorites of yesterday. There really is something for everyone on their set list! The second reason why the name is fitting is because each member of the band is from a different "generation" or decade! It helps keep the music interesting and fun for everyone. The band is made up of a dynamic group of musicians who all bring something different and unique to the table. The most important thing is that they all have a great time while playing together and it shows!
Here is a break down of the 4-piece crew:
Jeremy Russell plays acoustic guitar and leads the band in vocals. He’s been playing live gigs for over 15 years now and has been running his business “Outer Banks Wedding Entertainment” for the past five years. Tom Vinick, otherwise known as “Dr. Tom”, plays the lead guitar and sings backup vocals. Talk about dynamic; he’s actually a chiropractor and a talented musician! Jason Ribiero, otherwise known as “hot Jason” by the ladies, plays a mean bass. He shreds and the ladies have not been shy about telling us how much they enjoy the show! Jacob “Cool Jake” Richardson puts the percussion behind it all with his crazy drumming skills. He may be the youngest of “the Generations”, but he’s played with many bands on the Outer Banks over the years and is sought after because of his talent and awesome on-stage personality.
For the 7-piece group, Leslie Buck joins in bringing high-quality vocals, great stage presence, and additional percussion with the tambourine and the shaker. She knows how to keep the crowd having a great time every time! Also joining in for the 7-piece band is Ray Evans and Chris Sawin; both play the keyboard for the band and alternate depending on schedules. Ray is a well-known business owner on the Outer Banks who is also known for his appearances playing with local bands over the years. He really makes the sounds of the band come together in a magical way! Chris is an established local keyboard player and he also serves as the executive director of the Dare County Arts Council. He is a busy man helping to put together art and music events all over the OBX! Dave Kreiselman is newest member of the Generations ensemble but he's no stranger to music and performing. He is a Retired Army Bandsman and served as a clarinet instructor at the Armed Forces School of Music (20 years total). Dave brings an amazing sound, invaluable experience, and a magnetic personality!
Whether you're planning an all-out party or an intimate gathering, we'd love the opportunity to help make your day something really special!

Couldn't be happier...hire this man.
During our wedding planning process, it became quite evident that my future wife had a lot of ideas as to what music she wanted played at our wedding. “I love this song” became her rallying cry to come up with a long list of “must plays”. While my list of must plays, was much shorter, I was committed to having a mix of music styles (acoustic, DJ’d, etc)…and to be frank, Jeremy is singularly talented enough to handle it all. Upon the recommendation of our wedding planners, we made an appointment to meet Jeremy at his booth during the wedding expo and had the good fortune of meeting his wife that morning as well. He walked us through everything that he offered in terms of services and it absolutely fit the tone that my wife and I were trying to set with our music: a mix of sentimental and downright fun. Jeremy is a pretty laid back guy, very easy to engage and work with but also the consummate professional. He was flexible when our ceremony details required it and yet still kept the train on its tracks. At the end of the day, we’d work with Jeremy again 11 times out of 10 and would encourage those looking for just the right mix of everything on their wedding day to consider Jeremy, you won’t regret it.Sent on 09/17/2019

We couldn't get our guests off the dance floor!
Jeremy and the band were absolutely PERFECT! Jeremy played the ukulele for the ceremony and then we had the full band for the reception. He made sure to include all of our specific requests, while also doing a great job of reading the crowd and truly setting the mood of the night. They were the perfect mix of classics and new music to ensure everyone at the wedding had something to enjoy. I continue to have multiple guest tell me how much fun they had and I think the band was a huge part in that! You will not regret hiring them for your big day!Sent on 01/11/2020
