The Royal Dukes Band is the function and events band that is not just your stock-standard "Wedding Band"
With regular showcase performances and a free demo CD you can see and hear us live before booking, then pick and choose the size and configuration of your dream band. As full-time professional young musicians, we focus squarely on getting your night up and jumping, but without the cheese.
Best of all, we are self-managed, so they are much less expensive than other bands in this quality bracket – you are not paying any agents of middle-men! Pricing from $1500 - $5200, depending on band size.
We can play all the classics and 70s, 80s, 90s etc, and all the latest stuff too – from Frank Sinatra and Chuck Berry to Black Keys and Beyonce– and everything in between. Although our band was built from the ground up to fill the dance floor, we are trained jazz musicians and are just as happy to play cocktail music, acoustic covers, and all of those tunes that work best at the beginning of the night, before the party has really fired up! But when it is time to fill the dancefloor, this is when we really excel! We pride ourselves on knowing exactly the right songs to play at just the right time to pack your dancefloor. See our website for a selection of some of the many tunes that we can play, plus live recordings etc...
Our flexibility allows you to choose between 3 – 14 of our full time professional musicians who play with the likes of Alicia Keys, Prince, Gotye, Kanye West, Stevie Wonder, Beck & Tony Bennett, to name a few. At our regular showcase viewing nights you can check us out in action, and see for yourself why our young band already has an enviable reputation in the industry.
We hope to see you there to experience our vibe, our energy and speak to us about how we can make your big day absolutely sensational!!

WOWOWOW! Royal Dukes are beyond amazing!!! Seriously, they’re so incredibly awesome! They came highly recommended, so we booked them sight unseen having listened to some of their good tunes online. Such a great decision!!!
We loved they way they operate – letting you choose how many musicians you want (from 2-10+) depending on your event /budget. We knew we wanted acoustic/instrumental guitar for the ceremony, jazz duo for the cocktail hour, and we splurged on a 5-person band for our small 50-person wedding. Their prices are extremely competitive and you get way more than what you pay for with Royal Dukes.
They’re each such talented musicians, and they played together seamlessly! We gave them some general direction on what music we liked/disliked, and they knocked it out of the park on song choice, reading the crowd and filling the dance floor. They looked like they had so much fun playing as well, which contributed to the fabulous energy at our wedding.
Royal Dukes helped us bounce so much positive energy and love around our wedding venue, they created the most perfect atmosphere for our special day! Can’t recommend them enough!!
Now hurry up and book them before they’re busy on your big day!!!

What a great band!
Not only did the band exceed our expectations the night of our event, the booking process was very seamless! I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

The Royal Dukes Band were incredible. I got so many amazing compliments on them during and after the wedding. I would hire them again for any event needing a band in a heartbeat. They were easy to work with, and they made me feel comfortable and confident with my choice throughout the wedding planning process. Just do yourself a favor and stop looking and book the Royal Dukes.
This band is out of sight! So enjoyed them and it was a pleasure having them as a vendor recently in a wedding we coordinated at the Westin. Highly recommend Royal Dukes Band!
