Total Soul will be performing on Thursday, July 12. Total Soul plays everything from Motown, to today’s pop and R&B, to the jazz/Big Band standards of the 1940’s. Total Soul performs with the flair of a well-rehearsed show band, complete with front line choreography, exciting lead singers, hot horns, and a groovin’ rhythm section.
Total Soul ranges in size from 8-13 pieces, and is a completely live band (live musicians as opposed to computerized karaoke type background tracks). Total Soul’s music includes a mix of four part vocal harmony. Their vocal front line will mesmerize audiences with slick dance moves and smooth harmonies. Each one of the front singers will be featured as a lead vocalist. They will supercharge a crowd with their extraordinary vocal expertise.
The Infernos will be performing on Thursday, July 19. The Infernos Band, America’s #1 Show Band and the area’s premier live performance group, has been on the music scene since 1977.
In recent years their fame has grown and they have had opportunities that even the most famous main-stream bands would only dream of. The band has performed for President Obama and past Presidents as well, performed at the Inauguration Gala’s for former New Jersey Governors Jon Corzine and James E. McGreevey, entertained the Spanish Steps and at the Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy.
Street Hassle will perform on Thursday, August 2. Street Hassle is a “Powerful Horn Band” with skilled area musicians that enjoy performing interpretations of Classic Rock, Blues, Motown and Pop. They are energetic and an entertainingly enjoyable band. They also cut from 60’s classic rock to 70’s disco and can ease their way through a 200+ song catalog to excite the most diverse crowd. I heard exhilarating renditions of classic from Chicago, The Rolling Stones, Dusty Springfield and Tina Turner. They also choose the right song for the moment, and don’t not fall into repetitious medleys of just number one hits.
The band has turned a lot of heads. When you see a blazing horn section in action, or see and hear the sound of a real Hammond
Organ spinning a whirl of sounds through the air, you can rest assured that this band is not aiming for the slickness of a cruise ship lounge act. They are a real band playing real songs and sometimes that just takes 12 people to accomplish. “We cant cut corners like our competitors,” jokes the bands leader and founder Steve Hantis.
Street Hassle has open for John K & Steppenwolf, Blood Sweat & Tears and many other national acts. They enjoy a loyal following centered in the NY/NJ Metro Area.
B Street Band will perform on Wednesday, August 8. One of the longest-running tribute bands in the world, the B Street Band, hailing from the same Central Jersey roots as the Boss himself, is the premier Bruce Springsteen tribute band. Performing hundreds of shows all across the country every year, the B Street Band has been one of the most popular acts attracting large audiences. The BStreet Band has been cranking out Springsteen songs since 1980 but also plays tunes from Roy Orbison, Billy Joel, Tom Petty, and John Mellencamp as well as some 1970’s disco and Motown.
Radio Nashville will perform on Thursday, August 16. This six piece band hosts three male lead singers, an incredible female lead singer, a beautiful & talented female fiddle player, a pounding rhythm section, and an amazing lead guitarist. Performing the top modern country hits from Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, Luke Bryan, and Kenny Chesney, just to name a few, plus they play your favorite Country classics as well.
Garden State Radio will perform on Thursday, August 23. Special Summertime Barbecue presented by Shop Rite of Parsippany / Sunrise Kitchens starts at 5:00 p.m. Proceeds will be donated to the Parsippany PAL. Band starts at 7:30 p.m. Garden State Radio creates the ultimate audio/visual experience.
