The Business is the real deal. Seven of the best musicians around, including a horn section and powerful vocals and outstanding showmanship, deliver an unbelievable performance for any occasion. We LOVE finding the pulse of an audience and raising that pulse to create an experience far beyond the ordinary. We insist on your event being extraordinary in every way.

Everybody likes a buffet, but The Business is fine dining. Each song crafted out of our passion for the music and delivered to exceed your expectations. Each event tailored to the last detail and managed with the greatest of ease. And each show delivered with the energy and enthusiasm that will cause you and your guests to forget the rest of the world for a while and fully enjoy the moment. That is The Business and that is our guarantee of a great time.

We created a song list around our personalities and not the other way around because it is important to us that what we do is authentic. That commitment has served us so well and we have seen the crowd response so over the top, week after week, that we don't even feel bad anymore when we say, "No, we do not play any Bruno Mars". All of the songs that we play are familiar, but you've never heard them like this. We play this music as if we wrote it. The result is a concert-like, high energy, engaging and most importantly, REAL experience.

We work very hard in the weeks leading up to your event to know every detail and expectation and we work hand-in-hand with planners and coordinators so that the mechanics of an event never get in the way of the event itself. The Business is as professional as the name implies, but once the business has been taken care of, The Business takes care of the party. We guarantee a great time.
