The band can transform itself from a simple duo up to a full 9 piece band. We perform at clubs such as "Grand Del Mar "M" Club," Tango del Rey, The Headquarters at Seaport Village, Dance for 2 and Club Six2Five in Chula Vista.
The band provides it own sound equipment and the only requirement needed would be a cover area if the band performs outside or regular lighting if the band is performing inside.
Our customers are such as Corporate Clients, private parties such as birthdays, wedding receptions, clubs events and private performances requiring a smaller group such as a duo, trio or quartet.
We are reliable and insured for 1 million dollar liability, a requirement necessary to perform at many hotels in San Diego and Los Angeles.
