One of the most extraordinary party bands anywhere, THE JON BATES BAND is an amazing group of world class musicians playing for weddings and premier social and corporate events. They have performed together for more than fifteen years, and have played at many major music venues, clubs, concert halls, and destination events throughout the world, that have included celebrity guest lists with some of the most prominent names in business, politics and entertainment. They have also been the featured entertainment aboard various cruise ships, and have shared billing &/or performed as the back-up musicians for the legendary Bo Diddley, The Temptations, Gatemouth Brown, Jeffrey Osbourne, Richie Havens, Roberta Flack, and others. With one of the most diverse repertoires across all genres of music, they are your premier musical entertainment choice for any gala celebration or upscale social event.



Without exception, THE JON BATES BAND makes a party come alive! They musically engage and inspire people to have fun and enjoy themselves! This is a band that can satisfy any musical appetite, and is well known for their extremely diverse repertoire of Popular Music, Classic Rock, Jazz, Latin, Rhythm & Blues, Old School Soul, Top-40, Motown, Funk, Disco, Emo, Urban Folk, Country, Ethnic, and just great songs from every era.



THE JON BATES BAND uses a professional state-of-the-art PA system to present high quality sound, with optimum clarity at an appropriate volume. This also allows clients the option of having digitally mastered CD's played during band breaks, and for those clients who prefer to have "Club Mixes" blended into their overall entertainment package, making the transition between live and pre-recorded dance tracks is never a problem.



THE JON BATES BAND always makes every effort to accommodate a client's wishes and exceed expectations. The standard instrumentation of the band is keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, saxophone, and an amazing male and female lead vocalist. Depending on the personal preferences, space, and budget allowances for each event, the size of the band can also be modified to accommodate a more intimate setting when necessary, and/or expanded to a thirteen piece orchestra, with a full horn section and/or other genre specific musicians when circumstances permit.



Once you confirm with THE JON BATES BAND for your event, the date is reserved foronly you. The musicians and vocalists represented to you are the ones who will actually perform at your event. This is an extremely cohesive band, with a unique and very special chemistry. They have developed an extraordinary sound by playing together for years, and are available at a very fair and competitive price.

We were thrilled with the Jon Bates Band! They made our daughter's wedding the most memorable event ever and we cannot thank them enough for their talent, willingness to be flexible ( a very close friend of ours performed two numbers with the band) and their warm congeniality. The quality of the singers was unbelievable. And the instrumental band member were phenomenal. Much praise all around!!! Hope we have a chance to hire them again in the future!!!

We would enthusiastically recommend The Jon Bates Band for any occasion! We hired them for our wedding reception and from the first email to the event date, they were so responsive and accommodating to our requests. The dance floor was jam packed throughout their entire set. Everyone I spoke to said they were the best band they had seen at any wedding and I have to agree. Seamless transitions and virtuosic performances kept the energy high and everyone on their feet. Cannot recommend highly enough!!

I wanted to take a minute to thank the band for doing an absolutely incredible job at our wedding. I have had so many people come up to me or comment on photos about how amazing the band was. I knew they were going to be great, but they far exceeded my expectations. They were so professional and quick to respond to emails and phone calls. They accommodated all of our requests and took care of organizing the setup with the venue on their own. We had 3 musicians do an instrumental cocktail hour and then the entire band for the reception and they were all fantastic! I cannot thank them enough for doing such an incredible job and recommend them to anyone who is looking for a band for any type of event.

We highly recommend the Jon Bates Band. They are all extremely talented musicians and put on an excellent show. The dance floor was packed all night. They incorporated our requests, and the requests of our guest. They are professional yet approachable. Our only regret is not video taping their amazing performance :-).

The Jon Bates Band is extremely professional, accommodating and knows how to put on a good show. In the time leading up to our wedding, I was impressed with the level of detail of preparation that they showed. We had chosen some harder songs that the standard wedding band might not be able to play, and I must say, the musicians in the Jon Bates Band are extremely talented and nailed all of our requests with style. The true test for a great wedding band is the reaction of your wedding guests. All of our guests could not stop talking about the band and how good they were. We had a blast with the Jon Bates Band and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a talented wedding band.

We hired the Jon bates band for our wedding and they were absolutely amazing. Even our on site wedding coordinator who said that most bands are fussy said that JBB was the classiest and most professional band she had ever worked with. We had a couple of special requests but mostly just told them to play whatever got people dancing and people were dancing all night! My husband loves Dave Matthews so they played a Dave song and they sounded great! Jon was so nice, friendly and easy to work with, I highly recommend them!
