WHEN IT COMES TO MUSIC, WE DO IT ALL!

From beginning to end, we can provide all of the music and sound amplification for your wedding which saves you time, stress, and money. Ceremony musicians, cocktail musicians, a fabulous variety dance band with optional DJ add-on, and multiple sound systems including a ceremony P. A. with lapel microphones can be included as part of your package. Our band covers all styles of music including R&B, Soul, Motown, Funk, Classic Rock, Contemporary Top 40 hits, Pop, Disco, '80s, '70s, Oldies, Big Band, Jazz Standards, a little Reggae and a little Latin. Our musicians are equally talented in all genres, which makes us the perfect wedding band! Our vocalists can cover music from Etta James to Katy Perry and Frank Sinatra to Bruno Mars and Daft Punk. When you add our professional DJ services to the band, your song choices are endless. We can also add other types of instrumentation to your wedding package such as a Jazz duo/trio/quartet, when you book our band. Whatever your vision is, we will work hand in hand with you to help create the wedding of your dreams!
STEVE EZZO, the band leader of the Monterey Bay All-Stars, is an experienced, highly-skilled professional guitarist who has toured around the world with well-known groups and has performed on The Tonight Show, Arsenio Hall Show, and at The Monterey Jazz Festival and Monterey Blues Festival. Many clients and coordinators (including one professional radio DJ) have voiced the opinion that Steve is the best Master of Ceremonies they have ever heard at a wedding. He not only keeps the event flowing smoothly and seamlessly, but he also keeps the dance floor packed! The music and emcee can make or break an event and your wedding is far too important to settle for anything less than the best. We have been the recipients of the Wedding Wire Couples' Choice award in 2014, 2012, 2011, 2010, and 2009 and are consistently given the highest rating of 5 by our clients. Please read our reviews to get an idea of the type of service and the quality of musicianship you will receive if you book us. Solo guitar, guitar and flute duo, instrumental quartet, and dance band audio clips can be heard on our web site and you can also view our band and DJ song lists, see photos of the band and of weddings we have done as well as a band video. We believe The Monterey Bay All-Stars is the best variety band in northern California, but don't take our word for it--read the pages and pages of client comments posted on our company website as well as the 5-star reviews on Wedding Wire.
Our band can be booked as a 5, 6, 7, or 8 piece group. Regardless of the band size, you will still get our great customer service. All wedding packages include one P. A. system, a wireless microphone for toasts, dance lighting, and Steve's incredible Master of Ceremony skills, all at no additional cost. With the five piece band and larger, you also get a sound technician who assists with the coordination of the music and announcements.
We’d love to talk to you about your dream wedding and if you hire us, we will do everything we can to make it happen! We are on the Preferred Vendor List of most of the Monterey-Carmel wedding venues and we carry $2 million professional liability insurance which is required by many of the facilities. We're available by telephone daily from 10 am to 10 pm, so please call for a free quote. You'll be happy you did! Read less

Steve Ezzo’s band provided the music for our daughter’s destination wedding at the Highlands Inn in Carmel, California on May 23rd. Steve and Ann were wonderful to work with in planning the music. Ann and I communicated for over a year to coordinate the music. She was very organized and very professional during our communications. We immediately felt like we were in the best of hands in coordinating the music for the wedding. The music was AWESOME!!! From the guitar music before the ceremony to the beautiful ceremony music, to the dinner jazz music, to the full band bringing down the house- Steve provided the best of the best in music for the wedding. Steve knows how to get the party going. The dance floor stayed packed with everyone having a marvelous time dancing. The soulful sounds of the soloist filled the room with a great sound. We cannot say enough good things about Steve, Ann, and the band. So glad we booked them early, Thank you Steve and Ann, you really made our daughter’s wedding a day to remember.

Ann and Steve were absolutely lovely people to work with. Our wedding was planned from across two continents which did not deter Ann at all. Ann was very patient and honest with what would be available for us when booking the band. The 6-piece band was fantastic, everyone loved the music and it was great to see everyone (old and young) up and dancing.

Have no regrets and would definitely keep an eye out for them at future weddings!

Thanks again for all of your patience, time, love for music and being the absolute BEST musicians and vocalists. Everyone had the BEST time and could not stop saying "how wonderful" the band was. You kept everyone dancing and having a wonderful time.

Both vocalists, Neal and Lisa, have INCREDIBLE voices and can sing a large variety of songs. Neal sang our First Dance, "Stuck On You," and it will be a memory that we never forget!! Neal's vocals were perfect. :)

Ann--all of our communication and preparation throughout our year of planning paid off. Thank you for all of your hard work and time. You were the driving force behind the scenes. :)

Steve--WOW! You did it all!! From being the organizer and leader of our day to the Best Guitarist I have seen. You and your band made our day all that more special.

Band Members- You can not ask for a better band! Every member of the band is extremely talented!!
The Drummer- FABULOUS!! :)
The Bass Guitarist- WOW!! :)
The Saxophone player- PHENOMENAL!! :)
The Keyboard player- FANTASTIC!! :)
2 Vocalists and Steve on the Guitar- WONDERFUL!! :)

I would HIGHLY recommend Ezzo Entertainment for your next function!! They made our day all that more special and memorable. Thanks again for EVERYTHING!! You are the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!

I was extremely happy with my selection of Steve Ezzo Entertainment. Ann, who is responsible for most of the correspondence, was very quick in getting back to all of my questions/comments with very thorough answers. They did a great job of listening to and accommodating specific requests. Steve was happy to learn a new song to play on the guitar for our ceremony. He was made sure everything ran smoothly. The band overall was awesome--they were a huge part of what a fun time everyone had at our wedding. I would highly recommend them!

My husband and I wanted to surprise our family for our wedding with live music. We both come from very musical families so we had to go with a very special band. Finding the Steve Ezzo band was such a thrill. All of the musicians are so talented and thoughtful about their work. Working with Ann and Steve during the reception was a breeze. The band brought so much joy to our reception, our family will talk about it for years to come. We want to get married again just be able to work with them again!

Steve and Ann were amazing to work with. Not only is their repertoire extensive and full of variety, but when my husband and I requested a couple special songs not on their list, they were very accommodating in learning the material quickly and the result was beautiful. I highly recommend using them for your wedding, we had the guitar and flute for the ceremony and cocktail hour, string quartet for dinner, and the full band for dancing. The prices were very reasonable and everyone at our wedding LOVED the music, we are still getting compliments on them.

Picking Steve Ezzo and his band for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made! They were absolutely amazing! My husband and I love live music, having a live band was the only option for us, and Steve and his band did not disappoint. In fact they blew everyone's socks off. Amazingly enough the power had actually gone out right before our first dance was supposed to start. Rather than calling off the dancing, Steve and his crew really pulled it together. With only one small amp they played their hearts out, and no one on the dance floor ever wanted them to stop. I was truly amazed, and so touched at how they kept the night going as if nothing was even wrong. Steve is definitely a professional, and will do whatever it takes to keep any bride and groom happy (and keep everyone dancing!). His wife Ann is also a dream to work with. I would HIGHLY recommend Steve Ezzo to anyone!
