Custom-Build The PERFECT Dance Band!

the COLLECTIVE Dance Band is the very first Party Band to offer to its clients the option to custom-build

the perfect dance band for your event!

We start with the core of the band; drums, bass, guitar, keys and then add a minimum of two to five singers on the front line. Choose the singers based on the styles that each amazing performer best represents. Below you will find a promo pic, short video clip, a description of the style of music (including Top 40 dance, Pop/Rock, R&B, Country, Funk, Classic Rock, Disco, Motown, 80's & 90's, Reggae, Rap, Hip Hop and Latin) along with some artist/band examples. 

 

You can also choose to add a horn section, back-ground singers, a lead sax player, a percussionist, a dance troupe or a female string trio. Be the musical director of your own event band and build a musical group that best suits

YOUR PARTY!

The Collective Dance Band has also been known to invite up on stage, guest tambourinists, aspiring singers or to feature your group's best spotlight dancers! This very talented collection of artists have joined forces to make music together and they will most definitely bring the x-factor to your next special event!
