The best party band, both in looks and performance...and rockingness
Michael St. James. Duffel. Stik E. Sweet. Roxy Rockett. Four earth-shattering rock superstars from the '80s. If you ask anyone who survived L.A.'s famed Sunset Strip scene about these guys, they'll pretend to have never heard of them, and they'll say something like, "Were they even born yet? Don't you see how young they look?" Well, that person was just trying to be cool by paying attention to Hit Parader and Headbangers' Ball while these dudes were tearing up the underground scene. After taking a little time off from being unstoppable to regroup and relax, Girlz Girlz Girlz has once again reclaimed their rightful position as the torchbearers for rocking parties across the nation.
Besides everyone's favorites from the heyday of '80s rock, they jam out the biggest recent hits with the same arena-imploding feel. Whether they're ripping through "Livin' On A Prayer" or "Bad Romance", "Sweet Child O' Mine" or "Larger Than Life", it'll be sure to bang your head and rock your socks off...so wear a helmet and leave your socks at home.
Sam Griggs - Tuba, Kemp Williams Leader and Drummer, John Hoppe - Trumpet and Vocals, Vince Demor - Accordion, Matthew Hanna - Clarinet and Vocals.
We have entertained at birthday, anniversary and New Year’s celebrations, wedding receptions, a soccer playoff, and once played German songs for a St Patrick’s Day gathering at a Mexican restaurant. The band plays throughout the year for private parties parades and festivals.
We like to think of ourselves as your "Turn-key Festival Band". There's no need to hire a separate sound company as we can bring our own mixers, amps and sound system. Our performance includes audience participation such as sing-alongs, marching, clapping and slapping. We bring the Oktoberfest feeling to any audience, indoor or out.
Bob Wilusz, the Strolling Accordionist is great for special themes, festivals, and parties. He takes the music to the people by making personal contact with the audience or to just add to the atmosphere. Bob's repertoire includes various European music (French, German, Italian, Irish, and Polish), plus old time and Patriotic American. Bob has vast knowledge of songs from the time period 1890 to 1959. Special hats and vests compliment each musical style. He could perform just one type of music or all six.
Bob also does a lot of senior work. He'll do special lunch programs combining music and history or stroll during dinners or picnics. Bob will play special Irish, German, old time music with an explanation of its historical significance, and Christmas programs. Currently, Bob is booking for weddings; dinner, birthday, anniversary, picnics, and international theme parties.
