THE JON BATES BAND uses a professional state-of-the-art PA system to present the highest quality sound, with optimum clarity at an appropriate volume.

THE JON BATES BAND always makes every effort to accommodate a client's wishes and exceed expectations. The standard instrumentation of the band is mesmerizing front-line male and female lead vocals, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums and saxophone (full horn section when space and budget allow). Depending on a client's personal preferences, for each event, the size of the band can also be modified to accommodate a more intimate setting when necessary, and/or expanded to a thirteen piece orchestra.
Once you confirm with THE JON BATES BAND for your event, that date is reserved for ONLY you. The musicians and vocalists represented to you are the ones who will actually perform at your event. This is an extremely cohesive band, with a unique and powerful chemistry. They have developed an extraordinary sound by playing together for years, and offer their services at a fair and competitive price.

Incredible band, everyone loved them
Incredibly talented, wonderful band! Everyone agreed they were the best wedding band they'd ever seen. We only had 46 guests and they were fantastic, getting every single person dancing and singing along, sure they would be just as amazing with hundreds of guests - we felt so lucky to have them as a huge part of our big day. Also so lovely to work with, and played every one of our requests! Thank you!Sent on 05/10/2019

Better then I could have hoped for
Hiring the Jon Bates band was one of the best decisions I made for our wedding day. Jon and the rest of the band put SO much love and heart into each and every song. They kept our guests dancing all night long. Jon met with us before the big day to make sure that they would give us everything we wanted. They did that and More. We even asked for them to learn a few special songs and again. They were quick to make sure that they knew every song we wanted played. The best thing was that we asked Jon and the band to learn a special edited version of a song for my Father / Daughter dance. They did an INCREDIBLE job. The way they made the song their own made that moment even more special for us. If you are looking for a wedding band that will do more then just, Play the music. Then you have found them.Sent on 05/05/2019
