We dress to fit your occasion.
The band’s song list then moves on to even more spicy territory, rockin’ it up with exciting, syncopated and showy tunes from artists such as Santana and Gloria Estefan, then really amping the level of excitement up with classics such as Blood, Sweat & Tears “Spinning Wheel”, Styx “Come Sail Away” and “Freebird”. This is a band that loves the challenge of bringing you the best, and has the ability to bring an unparalleled variety of music to any event. Believe it or not, we can even play Jazz and Swing upon request (i.e. for cocktails), and we’re good at it!
And we have been noticed, having been invited to perform for celebrities, including TV and movie personalities, Nancy Pelosi, other members of Congress and President Barack Obama. We are the perfect wedding band, Bar or Bat Mitzvah band, anniversary band, gala band or party band in general, as we know so much music. Rock it up and party down with the Nexus Rock Band! You’ve got to hear our samples to believe it!
What we play, how loud we play and how we dress is completely up to you!
The diversity of The Nexus Rock Band allows the band to be booked as a 4 member ensemble, to the full 8 member band, and anywhere in between. All of the configurations are great, and the full band really rocks down the house.
“I just wanted to thank you and the entire band for being so, so wonderful! We truly had the perfect wedding day and I think you played a large part in that. The music was just like we had talked about, so thank you for being so attentive to my wishes. And the female singer (Laurie) had such an amazing voice! Everyone was raving about how great you were the next morning. I hope that you all had fun as well. I’d be happy to write you a recommendation if ever you might need one, and will definitely be passing your name along to other brides to be. Thank you again for such a great evening, I wish we had even more time that night to celebrate — it was awesome!!”
- Alicia Krepps, Stafford VA
