"Desert Brew Band" is a five-member group which has been together for twelve years, playing a variety of venues: private parties weddings, and events. We have entertained all over the valley and surrounding areas. Most recently, we were honored to be chosen to open at the Scottsdale Performing Arts for a special event! We play cover tunes that made the charts, to tempt any age group to get up on the dance floor. We choose upbeat, danceable music, creating a mood for the guests to feel relaxed and able to interact with the band. We have professional equipment, professional look, and we are known for our vocals, and harmony. We feel we are a perfect wedding band because of the versatility of our music. Our goal is always to consider the crowd and give them what they want, and also work with the Bride and Groom to make it a very personal occasion for them. It should be a day that everyone will talk about for years to come! Call us, and together we can make it happen! Read less

After listening to & interviewing several bands, we hired the Desert Brew Band for our son's wedding in Las Vegas, NV & are so happy we did. Not only did we get a fabulous band but also found a band who has a member that is a wedding consultant. This made our wedding so personal as they were so attentive to our needs. They were able to choose the perfect music for a wedding & even added some special requests. Such great sound & vocals & fun personalities! They were able to bring young & old to the dance floor. The dance floor was packed all night & all of our guests complimented us on what a wonderful, fun time they had. A wedding takes so much planning & is a time when one hopes all will go perfectly. The Desert Brew Band definitely played a big part in making our son's wedding a huge success! If you're looking for a band who appeals to all ages, & will accommodate your needs, then the Desert Brew Band is the band for you!
