About The Jon Bates Band

One of the most extraordinary party bands anywhere, THE JON BATES BAND is an amazing group of world class musicians playing for weddings and premier social and corporate events. They have performed together for more than fifteen years, and have played at many major music venues, clubs, concert halls, and destination events throughout the world that have included celebrity guest lists and some of the most prominent names in business, politics and entertainment. They have also been the featured entertainment aboard various cruise ships, and have shared billing &/or performed as the back-up musicians for the legendary Bo Diddley, The Temptations, Gatemouth Brown, Jeffrey Osbourne, Richie Havens, Roberta Flack, and many others. With one of the most diverse repertoires across all genres and styles of music, they are your premier musical entertainment choice for any gala celebration or upscale social event.

Without exception, THE JON BATES BAND makes a party come alive! They musically engage and inspire people to have fun and enjoy themselves! This is a band that can satisfy any musical appetite, and is well known for their extremely diverse repertoire of Popular Music, Classic Rock, Jazz, Latin, Rhythm & Blues, Old School Soul, Top-40, Motown, Funk, Disco, Emo, Urban Folk, Country, Ethnic, and just great songs from every era.

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. This also allows clients the option of having digitally mastered background music played during band breaks, and for those clients who prefer to have "Club Mixes" blended into their overall entertainment package, making the transition between live and pre-recorded dance tracks is never a problem.

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.

    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.

    Jon Bates brought my wedding to the next level

    Jon Bates Band are a blast, they were professional, on time, great performers, and did a great job turning my wedding into a dance party for the whole night. I gave them songs to learn and they nailed it all with a fluid performance that kept people dancing and having a good time. Anyone getting married in the Tri-State area, get this band!
