Holding true to the aesthetic style and sound of an era, we aim to play your venue or your next event.
The Essentials will bring the fun to any special occasion from weddings to festivals, birthdays to bar mitzvahs.

    Book The Essentials!

    We found The Essentials while bar hoping in New Orleans one night. We never expected to be able to book them for our wedding in Pensacola, FL. Not only were they flexible about traveling; they were really well priced compared with other bands we talked to. We had an afternoon/brunch wedding, and having The Essentials really made the party happen. I was worried about people dancing during the day, but everyone, including grandparents were on the dance floor! They went above and beyond and were very flexible/responsive in working with us and our planning team, especially considering the less traditional timeline. If you love Motown music and want to have an amazing dance band at your wedding, you cannot go wrong booking The Essentials! We can't wait to catch them the next time they are playing around New Orleans.

    We loved The Essentials so much from our wedding that we decided to hire them to play a block party. As usual, they sounded great, made the party, and got rave reviews from guests. They're the best wedding/event band in the New Orleans area, and I can't wait to dance to them again!

    We had The Essentials perform for my son and daughter in law's wedding two years ago and then very recently for a large outdoor Block Party. On both occasions The Essentials more than delivered!! They were GREAT!!! Everyone loved their performance and had a fantastic time dancing to their tunes.

    If you want great music from an entertaining and talented band that makes people want to dance and party, then BTE:
    Book The Essentials!
