Playing a consistently busy schedule of club dates, private parties, and special events since
1983, the Cauc's performance is now tighter and more exciting than ever. Numerous repeat
bookings and thousands of satisfied fans and clients proclaim the Caucasians' ability to rise to
any occasion.

Countless fans still remember the Caucasians' gig as the house band for the popular Morning
Zoo with John De Bella on Philadelphia radio station WMMR. Their energy and musical chops,
as well as their spontaneity, won them the chance to "rock the house" starting at 6 AM and back
up an impressive list of recording stars, comedians and celebrities, including Southside Johnny,
Warren Zevon, Gregg Allman, Alan King, and Sinbad.

At the birthday party for Willard Rouse, builder of One Liberty Place, Philadelphia's tallest
building, the Caucs performed on the top floor of the then-uncompleted building!

Inevitably, the Caucs have found their way into millions of homes on local and national TV
Featured on WPVIs AM Philadelphia, they performed with comedian Big Daddy Graham. They
provided musical backup in commercials for KYW Sports announcers Lou Tilley and Ukie
Washington and played "Heartbreak Hotel" on a public service announcement for the Women's
Humane Society.

The Caucs were especially pleased to perform at the Inaugural Ball of their good friend and
former mayor, Ed Rendell. At his invitation, the Caucs kept the party rollin' in Washington, DC,
at the Pennsylvania Democratic Committee's party for the National Democratic Party.
The bipartisan Caucasians also rocked with the Florida and Michigan Republicans during their
2000 National Convention here in Philadelphia!

Nationally, the Flamin' Caucasians performed house band duties for two popular shows: ESPN's
Lighter Side of Sports, working with Jay Johnstone and well-known sports celebrities; and the
syndicated Morton Downey Show with location shoots from Atlantic City to Detroit to Harlem's
legendary Apollo Theatre in New York. At the Apollo, the Flamin' Caucasians found themselves
keeping the peace playing "Walk, Don't Run" while police quelled a near-riot sparked by an on-
stage dispute between Reverend Al Sharpton and Roy Innes!

The Flamin ' Caucasians are the band of choice for private, corporate, fundraising, and political
special events. Here are some of the organizations and happenings that have rocked and rolled
with the Caucs:


Air Products Corporation YO! Philadelphia Festival
Johnson & Johnson The Junior League, Philadelphia, PA

As a club attraction, the Caucasians continue to be a solid headline act as well as an opener for
many national recording artists. The band is comfortable with any age group. They are the
natural choice for weddings, festivals and fairs!

The Caucs ' repertoire includes hundreds of songs ranging from very old to brand new — Nat King
Cole, the Four Tops, the Clash, and Smashmouth are among the many artists covered.

The band loves and respects the music it plays and shares this enthusiasm with its audience,

The Flamin Caucasians were the absolute highlight of our wedding! We knew they would be great, but they far exceeded our expectations and blew away both our family and friends (of all ages) on the big day. Leading up to the wedding, Bill, Dave, Rick the dj, and the rest of the crew were helpful and responsive with our questions, concerns, and planning details. They traveled to Washington, DC for the big day, had everything set up and ready to go early, and were courteous and thoughtful to the venue and wedding coordinator. Everything was completely seamless and we never worried for a second about anything as the band was totally on top of things. Most of all, the music was FANTASTIC and kept our entire wedding of ~200 guests on the dancefloor from the moment the band started playing to the very last song. Many people told us it was the best wedding band they have ever seen, and we could not agree more! We cannot recommend the Flamin' Caucasians highly enough and are tremendously grateful to them for making our wedding so much fun.

The Flaming Caucasians were fantastic at our wedding. They even drove 2 hours to play it. We had seen them at my cousin's wedding in 2013 and we knew right away we wanted them to play ours. They kept the entire place dancing all night. Every time I run into someone who came the first thing they tell me is how great the band was. Absolute blast, would recommend them to anyone.

The Flamin’ Caucasian’s experience can be summed up in one word…..awesome! Unlike a lot of us….these guys have gotten better with age. I first saw them play at my sister’s wedding 17 years ago. It was the best wedding reception I had ever attended until my own this past April.

Our reception was multi-generational with ages ranging from 12- 80. I have never seen so many people with gray hair dancing and singing at one time. It was a blast! Our friends and family are still commenting on what a fantastic time they had and what a great band The Flamin' C's are!

The process from booking them to playing the gig was seamless. They were easy going, professional and accommodating. They answered all questions in a timely manner and were receptive to our song requests. They have such an expansive repertoire of songs that I would recommend limiting your requests. They really played to the crowd and were very charismatic.

The only disappointment was when the reception ended! I would highly recommend making the Flamin’ Caucasian’s your wedding band choice…..but only if you want to have a lot fun!

The comment that originally sold us on the Flamin’ Caucasians for our wedding band was the fact that at any one time, the FC can get three generations on the dance floor. We attest that that was 100% true, from the beginning of the reception to the end. Ours was the only wedding we’ve been to where people actually danced during cocktail hour! Then, in one of our greatest memories from the night, during the final song “Shout!” literally every single person was on the dance floor, arms raised, singing their hearts out. (In between all that, there was a wicked drum solo, a fantastic Louie Armstrong cover, and of course, Paul Simon awesomeness.)

As further testament to their musicianship, they took our requests and made them work with the feel of the night and the mood of the crowd. A major perk of the FC is they come with their own DJ. Cocktail hour is generally covered by the DJ, but the band saw some dancers on the floor and went with it. Just awesome.

From start to finish, the Flamin’ Caucasians were professional and genuine. They were easy to coordinate with – Bill responds to email quickly and thoroughly – and left us with nothing to worry about. Do not hesitate to trust them with anything: they will do it all impeccably. This comes from years and years of experience and exposure…they’ve been everywhere! The best part is that their sound and energy is indicative of a group that actually enjoys playing music and entertaining crowds and is not just in it for the business. They have fun, which makes it more fun for everyone else.

Should we ever have need for a band again, they’ll be the first people we call. Thanks to all the members for making our wedding celebration an absolute blast.

These guys are a MUST BOOK for your wedding!! The Flamin Caucasians were great!! Throughout the whole wedding process (and it can be a stressful one) these guys totally set me as ease. We worked together to create a set list that was perfect for us as well as our guests. Everyone was dancing the entire night... Even my old Aunt Shirly was on her feet!! When we got our pictures back from the photographers, the majority of the pictures from the reception were photos of our guests bustin' a groove with their mouths hanging open from singing. It was incredible... and that was just what we wanted. Booking these guys was the best decision we made :)

...and the DJ (DJ Rick) that the Flamin Caucasians work with was great!! He was a great MC for the night. He played everything that we asked him to play and honored our request for no Electric Slide or YMCA!! He was just a genuinely nice person and easy to work with.

Our guests are still talking about our wedding and the awesome band. You cannot go wrong with the Flamin Caucasians and DJ Rick.

As we all ( at least the parents of brides and grooms to be ) know ,weddings can be a lot of ups and downs in the planning and hard work that leads up to the day. Once there ,I think we all want the best for our children ,and want all our guests ,friends and family to have a wonderful event . As they look back on this day we want to have them remember how special it was ,not because of the planning or ,the place or the food ,BUT because of the good time they had ,the friends and new acquaintances they made! To have that happen takes a lot of energy, and from our experience we could not have gotten there without the outstanding energy ,sound and all out involvement of the “Flamin Caucasians” !!!!!!!!!! In a few words ,SIMPLY THE BEST !, Thanks.
