Backseat Love Affair
5 Reviews | Totowa, NJ
Let's just start by saying: What we're NOT. We're not a cheesy band that will sing 'Celebration', 'YMCA', and 'We are Family'. We're not an enormous 16 piece band that is going to being singing Celine Dion for your first dance (poorly.) We're not a bunch of old guys out of touch with what today's brides WANT. What we ARE. An authentic Rock band that's been together the better part of a decade and known for doing famous venues like Jenkinson's in Point Pleasant. We have an every expanding set list of the best Rock, Pop, and Country. Also, we have a professional DJ/MC to properly do your introductions, and play the songs that don't sound quite right played by a band. (Oh my god Becky, look at her butt!)
