Lesbian Owned: Gay Wedding Entertainment in San Francisco, CA, USA
The Party Monsters Band is a high energy good-time Party Dance Band in the San Francisco Bay Area. Veterans of hundreds of concerts and festivals, the band members have performed worldwide, providing music for events ranging from intimate get-togethers to large celebrations.
We specialize in infectious dance music and romantic soulful ballads. Our repertoire features well-loved R&B and Motown tunes from artists such as Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Etta James, Wilson Picket and many more. Our infectious beat has people on their feet and heading for the dance floor in no time. We have so much fun onstage, that your guests can't help getting into the party mood!
The Party Monsters Band is led by Jean Fineberg, co-director of the fusion group DEUCE which performed at the Michigan Women's Music Festival for years. She now also co-leads the 17-piece Montclair Women's Big Band. Her credits include platinum and gold albums by David Bowie ("Fame,") Chic ("Le Freak,") and Sister Sledge ("We Are Family".)
In addition to performing, Jean has taught Motown and R&B ensembles at the Jazzschool in Berkeley, California for 15 years.
The basic 5 piece Party Monsters Band consists of Lead Vocals, Guitar/Vocals, Keyboard/Vocals, Bass and Drums, but can be expanded to add a tight horn section. We can also provide beautiful flute music for ceremonies, as well as Swing and Latin tunes, to create an elegant background ambiance for cocktails or dinner.
We are specialists at reading the mood of your guests and adjusting to the flow of the party. Once your event begins you can relax and leave the music to us. We tailor our instrumentation and repertoire to your specific needs, and would love to discuss how the Party Monsters can help give you and your guests the time of your lives!
REQUESTS: Please have a look at our sample songlists below. Would you like a first dance? Would you prefer all dance music, or should we mix it up with Swing and Latin? Would someone like to sit in with the band? Need a mic for toasts and speeches? Tell us about your needs, and let us work with you to plan the perfect event.
Cheers, Jean Fineberg (The Party Monsters)
