Hailing from Richmond, VA, Dance Candy is a party band that mixes the best of modern, popular hits of today with all the funky, soulful classics of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s. This all-star lineup features a soulful, sensuous female voice that draws influences from everyone like pop stars Adele and Whitney Houston to R&B greats like Jill Scott and Sharon Jones. The deep groove rhythm section can set the tone for everything from funk, rock and hip-hop. The sophisticated, funky lead guitar sets up the soaring melodies of the trumpet that leaves jaws dropped, and sometimes even hearts broken. Dance Candy is a tight six-pack of musicianship, schooled in the vibrant VCU music scene in Richmond. Heart and soul. Everything you need to party…and the night of your life.

At the heart of the Jersey Shore, “Backstreets” was the first band in the world to do a unique tribute to a LIVE performer. There are now an estimated 200,000 tribute bands following their lead and performing all over the world. Nearly 6000 performances later, now named the BSTREETBAND—they are still the hardest working tribute band on the circuit with 175+ shows per year throughout the country— including really large venues!

Venues include opening before Springsteen shows outside at the Philadelphia Spectrum for the final 4 events of that historic arena. Performing before Bruce shows at Nationals, Wachovia, MetLife Stadium, Prudential Center, and the newly constructed Comcast Xfinity Center at Citizens Bank Park.

The band was honored to accept an invitation from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame “Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen” exhibition to give multiple performances at the Philadelphia Constitutional Center.

BStreetBand has had the honor and pleasure of performing with several members of the E-Street Band including “Miami Steve” Van Zandt, Mighty Max Weinberg, the late great Big Man Clarence Clemons, Garry W. Tallent and Vini “Mad Dog” Lopez.

Boathouse Row

Home of your ultimate guilty pleasures. Presenting Boat House Row; a Yacht Rock experience like no other. Bringing you the silky sounds of artists like Hall & Oates, Journey, Christopher Cross, Doobie Brothers, Chicago, Huey Lewis, Toto and many more…

In October, The Guardian wrote, “Something about the rebranding of the music that inspired it as Yacht Rock – an evocative name that posited the music as a soundtrack to a mythic life of sun-kissed luxury – seemed to chime with people, bringing it to a new audience.”

“Yacht Rock” is defined as the highly polished brand of soft rock that emanated from Southern California between 1976 and 1984. The term is meant to suggest the kind of smooth, mellow music that early yuppies likely enjoyed while sipping champagne on their yachts. Significant “Yacht Rockers” include Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Kenny Loggins, Christopher Cross, Steely Dan, Toto and many more. The genre has grown to such heights that Sirus/XM and Pandora recently dedicated 24/7 channels to the genre.

This resurgence of late 70s/early 80s soft rock gave birth to the Philadelphia-area band, Boat House Row. Always musical and often comedic, the 6-piece band performs soft rock favorites in full costume to rabid fans around the Delaware Valley. The band is made up of Philly music veterans who released original music under the name, “Fooling April” over the last 15 years and also performed Beatles tributes under the moniker “Sweet Loretta Fat” more recently.

“It’s amazing how many generations this material touches” says the band’s front man, Kenny Trout. “This is music people never stopped loving. The beauty is there’s no more shame in indulging in these guilty pleasures anymore”.
