ARTIST BIO

For countless happy clients, Mr. Potato Head has been taking parties everywhere to the next level. Hire this extremely talented seven-piece band, that includes a full horn section, and you're sure to earn cool points with your guests! Whether you're looking for a killer band that hits it vocally and musically, or a fun, interactive group that doesn't remind you of a typical wedding band, MPH is the perfect match for you. Have a space issue at your venue? No problem. Mr. Potato Head can also perform as a four piece band without the horns. The scaled-down four-piece core members sing and harmonize as well as they play, and listeners often comment, "I can't believe this much sound is coming from these guys!"

Performing many of the all-time greatest songs, Mr. Potato Head can deliver Sinatra with the sophistication of the jazz greats, or play The Jackson Five with the same infectious groove as Motown's Funk Brothers. When covering artists like Bruce Springsteen or The Rolling Stones, their energy has a rawness reminiscent of the punk era. During "Holiday," you may do a double take to see if Madonna just made a guest appearance! Mr. Potato Head's repertoire contains an unusually wide range of material, including many unpredictable songs that will add to the uniqueness of your occasion. From yesterday's classics to some of today's current hits, Mr. Potato Head can do it all.

This band has a long history of providing exceptional musical entertainment, in part, by having always associated itself with top-notch players. Individually and collectively, current members of Mr. Potato Head have performed, recorded or toured with some of the most renowned musical artists in the world. That list would include a 12 year stint with James Brown; performances with Michael Jackson, Dave Matthews Band, Lenny Kravitz, Earl Slick; tours with Judie Tzuke, David Ball, C.J. Chenier and the Red Hot Louisiana Band; and more than a year with Ben Folds. Mr. Potato Head horn players have performed countless concerts with The Four Tops, The Temptations, Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett and Kenny Chesney. Mr. Potato Head alumni have gone on to become integral members of the recording/touring acts: Sting, Gavin DeGraw, Regina Spektor, Avril Lavigne, Jack Ingram, Little Big Town and more. In 1993, three original members of Mr. Potato Head were signed to Sony/Columbia as the band, "Dag," who recorded two critically acclaimed albums for Columbia Records and spent several years touring the US, Europe and Japan. Influenced by so many unique experiences, Mr. Potato Head's brand of entertainment is anything but typical. So, for the most memorable night of your life, book Mr. Potato Head today!!!
