Depending on the personal preferences, space, and budget allowances 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, with a full horn section and/or other genre specific musicians when circumstances permit.

I want to take a moment to thank Jon Bates and the Band for an incredible performance! As musicians, it was important for me and my husband to have a live band for our wedding, and The Jon Bates Band met every expectation, and more! I had first heard them perform at my sisters wedding a few years ago, so after booking my wedding date I reached out to Jon immediately. From our first conversation he was friendly, professional, and accommodating of all of our requests. The wedding was a hit, and the dance floor was packed all night long. We received so many compliments on the bands performance and were even told that their versions of every song were “as good as the originals, if not better!” I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a classy band at a fair price. Jon, thank you for taking the stress out of wedding planning, and for making our wedding day perfect!

Jon and the group are terrific! The planning and execution process was so easy and so flexible, rather than other music vendors we spoke with who very much wanted to execute "their way".
Most importantly, their music is phenomenal, we had a packed dance floor, and have continued to receive compliments in the months since about how awesome they were! If you want terrific music, professional staff, who don't nickel and dime and make you feel inexperienced, book with Jon Bates Band!!
