The Fever's musicians are extraordinary, and The Fever is NOT your ordinary party band! We love the music we play, we keep it fresh and fun, and we not only MC the entire event with sophistication, we also offer planning assistance in the days and months leading up to your big day. We are all full time musicians- playing music is our career, our lives and our passion!

Our sound is full, hip, and supremely polished. Whether you want elegant jazz for a refined Cocktail party, enticing funky beats and dance hits for a special celebration- or anything in between- The Fever will create a customized show for your entire event.

Our favorite clients are those who appreciate a variety of authentic and soulful music- we are real musicians who will play really fantastic music for you and your guests. No cheese here!

The Fever offers live music in almost any configuration- Solo/Duo/Trio/Quartet... on up to a 10-piece band! Our standard 7-piece band includes vocals, drums, bass, guitar, keys, hand percussion, saxophone, clarinet and a mean harmonica- with impressive leads & harmonies performed by two powerhouse female vocalists and great male singers. Want to add a little more sizzle? Bring in an additional horn player or two, to bring up the energy and get a fat horn section sound playing those signature lines from the songs your guests know and love. We even offer a percussionist, whose congas and percussion beats add that "can't help but dance" energy!

I would highly recommend The Fever to any bride and groom. We had a guitar/cello duo for the ceremony, a jazz trio for the cocktail hour, and a 7 piece band for the reception. The guitar/cello duo was lovely, as was the jazz trio. Then, the reception completely rocked . . . we needed a bigger dance floor! The floor was totally packed from the moment The Fever began around 8:30 until the hotel literally pulled the plug around 12:30, which was 30 minutes after the reception was supposed to end. It was crazy and super fun. The Fever even learned an off-list song--Your Love by the Outfield--on very short notice and completely crushed it. It was awesome! They played (very well, might I add) the few songs we requested they play, but otherwise controlled the song list to great success--EVERYONE, young and old, was on the dance floor all night. Great success!

As to the business side of things, before the wedding it was a pleasure to work with Michelle and Eric on the order of events and song choices for the wedding. They were responsive and totally flexible with our schedules and ideas for the night. Thanks guys!

Katie, thanks for such a great review! You totally rock. We had so much fun learning the Outfield tune for you and playing it was a blast! What an awesome response from your guests! So much fun. :-)

I also remember playing Teach Your Children for your Father/Daughter dance. That song holds a very special place in my heart, and it was an honor to sing it for you and your dad. I really enjoyed getting to know you and Tyler and helping to plan your big day.

Thank you again, and do stay in touch!

Michele/Band Leader is not only extremely talented, she
is well organized and very helpful. A three piece jazz
ensemble played classic pop standards during cocktail
hour--they were superb. The seven piece band played
during dinner and for the duration of the evening till
11 pm. We enjoyed every moment of their
performances and the vocals were consistently
outstanding, with passion & exhuberance!

We plan on hiring this band in the future for
one of our Anniversary Parties. Our Grand
Wedding Reception was at Della Terra Mountain
Chateau and the band complimented the Majestic
Nature of The Rocky Mountains. They were fabulous
from first note to last! Do not hesitate to hire
them in a HeartBeat!

I HIGHLY recommend this band for your wedding reception. From the very beginning, even before we booked them, they were extremely organized and truly wanted to tailor the music to fit perfectly to our needs. I had a solo guitarist during the ceremony, a jazz trio during the cocktail hour, and a 7 pc. band for the reception. I will admit, I was really nervous because I had never heard them play live and had only read reviews/listened to them online given that I was having a destination wedding. But given how friendly, organized, and helpful both Michele and Ariel were, I trusted it would all work out. Ariel even learned a very unique song for us as our first dance, shortened it, and turned it into a solo from a duet...it was BEAUTIFUL and so perfect. My guests are still talking about how fantastic the music was!! My parents' friends were also commenting on how great the variety of music was (a little something for everyone--both the young and older crowd) and that credit goes to the band for helping us choose a great playlist with songs we liked. Everyone was on the dance floor ALL night...which was all I could ask for. The only downside is that I wish I'd hired them to play longer!! No one was ready to leave!

Amazing! I was absolutely blown-away by how truly talented these musicians are. The ability to bounce from genre to genre at the flip of a switch was nothing less than impressive. Our event featured 5 musicians; drums, bass guitar, lead guitar, keyboards, and Michelle the lead singer. They absolutely blew the roof of the place. I can't even imagine what they sound like with their horn section. I look forward to seeing them again, and can do nothing but give my endorsement, and recommendations to any and all.

Thanks for your fantastic review, Mark! Dry Gulch is an amazing venue- so unique, rustic & gorgeous! We really appreciate how accommodating the staff was- it was such a pleasure. Looks like we'll be playing up there again in summer of 2014! Hope to work with you again!

Best,

Hiring The Fever Live was the best decision we made for my daughter's wedding. It started with a planning meeting with the band manager who was very organized and professional. We hired them for the instrumentals of the ceremony and background music for the cocktail hour, as well as the dance. She coordinated with the wedding venue, and reassured me that the flow of the event would be handled with no worries. (We didn't have a wedding planner.) We had the 7-pc band and the sound was fantastic. During the planning process we requested a couple songs that were not on their playlist, and they pulled them off flawlessly. People were on the dance floor the entire night with big smiles on their faces. The dance was at a hotel patio. The next day someone staying at the hotel told us that their group of 15 people were on their fifth floor balcony dancing to our music all night and raved about how great the music was.

The Fever played at our wedding and did an awesome job. We started off with jazz music during our cocktail hour and the band played after dinner. The band learned 2 new songs for us and both sounded amazing. The band played excellent music and had all of the guests (of all ages) on the dance floor. I think we danced to ever single song and even had them play a bit longer. Great band!

My specific needs for ceremony where met -- they learned new pieces of music just for us! My guests danced non-stop because of the fun vibe. I just love these guys!

The Fever played during the reception at our wedding and were incredible! They are a very versatile band that can play slow songs (like the first dance) and high energy dance music equally well. We received many compliments from guests of all ages on how much they liked the band and the dance floor was basically full the entire time the Fever was playing. Michele was great to deal with and very helpful and professional. We were going back and forth on whether we wanted to spend the extra money for a band for our wedding, and we definitely made the right choice. I highly recommend The Fever for any wedding event!

The band was amazing!

After our first band backed out 6 weeks before our wedding, The Fever was eager to help and make sure our experience was amazing.

I am so happy that we ended up with them as our band; they had a great song list to choose from that helped us put together an amazing play list and they even learned a song just for us.

I couldn't have been happier.
