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.

The Jon Bates band was exactly what we were looking for on Martha's Vineyard for our wedding reception and wedding music. From the beginning, Jon always responded to any e-mail/communication within 24 hours. The band kept the entire night flowing to perfection. Their music was enjoyed by people of all ages....and kept us dancing until the very end. They did a fabulous job for our ceremony on the beach as well.

The Jon Bates band completely made our reception! Not only were they extremely flexible with our song selections and worries about our first wedding dance song-but they were completely friendly and professional at all levels. Jon Bates & Band created an energetic environment in which all of my guests were dancing and enjoying themselves. I am completely satisfied (beyond!) with their performances and would use them again if I have the opportunity.

Want everyone on Long Island to know that this band is wonderful. I believe that adding live music to the wedding celebration was a great decision. The band was tight and everyone had a fantastic time on the dance floor.

Jon and I spoke a few times before the event and he was able to get a feel for the type of music we wanted and that was all we needed to do. Really can\'t say enough about how talented these guys are and how much they added to a fun memorable night.

One last thing - they were able to perform a cover a Wilco song as our first dance and it was done perfectly.

Thanks again Jon and the band!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Jon Bates Band!! My guests are still talking about how wonderful the music was. We were literally up dancing the entire time. Jon was very accommodating. There were a few songs that I wanted to originals to be played, and he had no problem with that. Steve's (lead singer) voice blew me away, and their rendition of most songs were better than the originals. Like I said- I can't say enough good things!!

The Jon Bates Band blew us away on our wedding day. All of the musicians are incredibly talented, you almost forget it's live because they sound like the recorded version of a song (or better)! They were wonderful to work with, extremely responsive, professional, and of course, talented. Everyone was on the dance floor from the moment they began playing until the very last song. I'm so glad we booked them and would definitely recommend them to anyway looking for a great band, no questions asked. A+++

If you are considering a band for your wedding, I'll save you some time...just book the Jon Bates Band. Now you can go on to worrying about the 10,000 other things related to your wedding. With the Jon Bates Band you won't have to worry about 1st Class Entertainment because they are it, in spades. The Jon Bates Band is not "A Wedding Band" they are a band. Which means great musicians and vocalists that have a wonderful chemistry and ability to entertain. My wife and I could not have been happier having chosen The Jon Bates Band for our wedding. They entertained us and our guests, young and old. The band was so flexible in their ability to perform 2 lesser known songs, 1 for our first dance and 1 for the father/bride dance. They did a great job and we thoroughly enjoyed their renditions. Our review is a perfect 5.0/5.0 and they are in fact that, a perfect band for an important occasion. I didn't expect people to approach me during the wedding commenting so highly on the band, some comments like "this is the best band I've ever heard at a wedding", "they are great entertainers" & "where did you find them?". The accolades go on and on, the price is a great value for what they deliver, can't wait for an excuse to book them again.

The Jon Bates Band was incredible! We had such a hard time with other bands we tried to contract and were strung along for months at the height of everything I was told with 8 months left until my wedding that the band we thought we had was unavailable (all this while my Grandmother was sick in the hospital) I called the Jon Bates Band and told them the situation and they couldn't have been more professional. They told me they had the date available and not to worry about a thing until after my Grandmother's Funeral Services. They were so easy to work with and made all of our requests a possibility. Our wedding song was by Van Morrison and the song sounded just like the recording if not BETTER! I love the Jon Bates Band! And if you have any inclination to hire them for your wedding or event I would strongly encourage you to do so!

Jon Bates Band was incredible! They had everyone dancing at my wedding the whole night! People were even out on the dance floor before dinner was served. We really enjoyed having the band play at our wedding and all of my guests continue to comment on how great the music was.
Prior to the wedding, Jon was very helpful in picking music selections and very organized in the planning process. We were overall very pleased. I would highly recommend the Jon Bates Band for any event.

The Jon Bates Band far exceeded our expectations! Jon was very easy to work with, and the band even learned a new song for our father daughter dance. We received so many comments from our wedding guests saying how great the band was, and everyone was on the dance floor! So many of our wedding memories are tied to dancing to the music that the Jon Bates Band provided. I would definately reccommend this band to anyone planning a wedding- they were excellent!

Look no further, as the Jon Bates Band are the most talented, accommodating, and professional entertainers that you can find. But so much more than that, is the genuine warmth and great spirit that they share with each other and all your family/friends. They make the day all about you and doing everything possible to exceed even the highest of expectations. We can't wait for their next public venue so we can go and share another wonderful evening with them.
