Dance & Specialty Bands

BACKSTAGE is a dynamic force in entertainment in and around the Nation's Capital.

In addition to performing at White House state dinners, Inaugural Balls and many other high profile engagements, its members have shared the stage with music greats from James Brown to Frank Sinatra, and from Alabama to Sonny Rollins.  


At ease in any genre, BACKSTAGE  is a 10-piece high-energy band well-suited for any occasion that will have your guests on the dance floor all night long. Spotlighting one female and two male vocalists, BACKSTAGE is driven by a world-class rhythm section consisting of guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards. To lend authenticity to any style of music beginning with the big band era through today’s contemporary hits, BACKSTAGE also features a powerful horn section comprised of trumpet, saxophone and trombone.


You may see members of BACKSTAGE  singing the National Anthem at the Verizon Center, performing at the Kennedy Center, in concert on the Mall, playing jazz at Blues Alley, performing at Mardi Gras in New Orleans or playing the latest Top 40 favorites overseas for our troops. Each musician of BACKSTAGE is a soloist in his or her own right and can be seen performing in the DC area as well as across the nation in a variety of settings.



“’Rendezvous’ was absolutely sensational at Liz and Chip’s wedding last Saturday, and you were an absolute dream to work with. By the next morning, three guests had called me to get the name of the band for their upcoming events. Your attention to the schedule we worked out, and your perfect demeanor as an announcer, made everything flow effortlessly. Most of all, the dance floor was packed the entire time and everyone said it was the BEST wedding and the BEST band. Our deepest gratitude to all the band members, and, most especially, to you. Sincerely,”
Vickie and Joe
