CELEBRATE is not just the name of our band. It's who we are and how we do it. Every song and every performance is a celebration of our music, the audience, and each other.
This is the band I've always wanted. This band can really perform the songs as they were meant to be performed. The sound and feel of Motown has been an influence my whole life, and we get it right! I am honored to share the stage with musicians of this caliber.
"From the first song to the last, CELEBRATE makes you want to get up and dance. We truly enjoy performing and it shows."
It's a party and you are invited... to "CELEBRATE!"
