Route 66 Info & Venue List

Wedding/Band Info:

From Houston‚ Texas comes the tight sounds of The Route 66 Band. A very high quality group consisting of only 4 or 5 musicians‚ sounding like a 5 or 6 piece group. Our smaller size and big sound has been so successful due to our members being mostly studio quality musicians and singers‚ and state–of–the art keyboard technology. Our listeners will dance to ageless music mixed with current hits. The Route 66 Band is popular not only because of its great sound‚ great vocals and complex harmonies‚ but also because of its wide variety of music‚ providing something for everyone. Although primarily known for its dance music‚ Motown‚ and classic rock‚ the band also provides something for everyone including pop‚ R & B‚ 70s‚ 80’s‚ some 90’s‚ and current hits‚ country‚ standards or dinner jazz. The Route 66 Band is a self–contained group providing state–of–the–art sound reinforcement (80 folks to 2‚000+) and lighting‚ and a large collection of music during breaks‚ with casual to formal attire to suit any occasion. Their presentation‚ professionalism and attention to detail complete the package guaranteeing the best in live entertainment.

We also have available sax players or various horn combos for your event if you so desire.

First and foremost‚ we would like to thank you for your interest in booking the “Route 66 Band” for your event. The Route 66 Band has been entertaining audiences since 1997’ with the greatest of success. Our unique blend of great musical selection‚ exceptional musical abilities with the latest use of keyboard technology‚ stage energy. and fun are what separates the Route 66 Band from your typical party band. We look forward to entertaining you in the very near future.

For private parties and weddings‚ the Route 66 Band will perform 3 hours of music over a 4 hour period. We will arrange our set and break schedules in accordance with your wishes‚ but have found that four‚ 45 minute sets with 15 minute breaks tends to work best. During breaks we will play CD’s covering various styles of music choosing songs from our personal collection‚ or you may bring your own.

For Weddings:

While your guests arrive and enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres‚ the Route 66 Band will provide the perfect blend of DJ’d “dinner music” with traditional and contemporary jazz during this time.

“The Route 66 Band” traditionally entices the audience to dance to crowd favorites from the Motown era and other songs from the 60’s and 70’s. Earlier music selections will be chosen to appeal to the “senior” members of your audience‚ while later selections (80’s to more current material) will be aimed at a younger age group. Remember‚ our goal is to please everyone in attendance‚ and we’ve found this approach to be very successful.

It is our goal to make sure your evening of fun and dancing is not only the one you had in mind‚ but one that you and all of your friends will remember for a long time to come.
