Dance & Specialty Bands

One of the true joys of living and working in the Washington DC area is the incredible talent and versatility of the local musicians.

Dance Bands »
Nothing can energize a special event like a hot dance band.  Whether you are planning a corporate event, gala fundraiser, or a once in a lifetime wedding or mitzvah, we have bands with the variety of repertoire to keep everyone on the dance floor.  Ignite your party with music from Beyonce and Outkast.  Take a trip down memory lane with old school favorites like the Rolling Stones and Van Morrison.  Spice up the evening with the hot Latin sounds of Santana and Jennifer Lopez.  Bring out the romance with ballads by John Mayer, Celine Dion and Michael Buble.

Specialty Bands »
Themed special events are extremely popular.  To date we have arranged music for all kinds of different themed events, including Pig Roasts, Beach Parties, New Orleans, Hunt Country, Brazilian Carnival, Colonial Williamsburg, Patriotic, Old West, Pirate, Cinderella and the Roaring 20’s.  Authentic specialty musicians will help create an unforgettable special event.  We have the opportunity to serve as world ambassadors, supplying international musicians from every corner of the world.  From France to Japan to Peru and every country in-between, Olivera has native musicians to cover all musical styles.

How are there not more reviews on Olivera Music?? We booked Rendezvous for our reception and Just the Two of Us for our ceremony/cocktail hour music. Before I even being to talk about them, I have to talk about how easy and helpful Olivera was to get in touch with. I dealt with Kevin Olivera, the owner, who was amazing to work with. Emails answered VERY quickly, really good/honest advice and guidance as to what band(s) you might want, how big you need the band, what type of music you want. That brings me to Rendezvous, the band that played for our reception. He also plays bass for the band! My absolute favorite part about my entire wedding was the band (Rendezvous). They really guided the "mood" for the entire evening and went far beyond my expectations. Everyone came up to me during and after saying how amazing the band was and asking who they were. I knew they were going to be good, but I never realized how good they were going to be! They definitely took in the atmosphere and the crowd and headed in the direction that was perfect for the guests; that is what takes any band to that next level (from good to great). When I look back at the pictures and the memories that were made that night, there is music playing in the background with those memories and pictures . . . I will never forget the music. It means so much to me that they did such an amazing job.

“On behalf of the Wolf Trap Foundation we want to thank you for your participation in our ‘Tango at Twilight’ fundraiser. We realize that a great deal of planning was required for this event, and we want you to know that we truly appreciate your patience with last minute changes in the evening’s program. Your band did a sensational job of keeping the party moving – through tango, swing, and then onto the rock! It was a real pleasure working with you. Your professionalism, and that of your band, helped to make this a memorable experience.”
