Friday Night Entertainment
Oktober 13, 2017 – under contract
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.
One of the best vocalist working today, John Németh has received a multitude of nominations for Blues Blast and Blues Music Awards, with four consecutive BMA nominations for the B.B King Entertainer Of The Year Award.
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.
