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.



“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.”
