We want to thank The IMPACT Band so much for everything!!! You have been so great to work with! The band ROCKS!!!! Davin and I did not stop dancing the whole night....I didn't even go to the bathroom all night because I didn't want to miss a moment. You guys sounded incredible and kept people out shaking their booties all night long!! All of my guests said that they haven't had that much fun in a long time. Our wedding day was truly one of the best days in our lives. Please thank all the band members and the pianist (he was also fantastic) for making our wedding a blast !!!!!!! Thanks again

Talk about a GREAT TIME BAND!!! I can't say enough about how surprised and pleased I was seeing this band for the first time!! When I say this is a band for ALL ages I truly mean that!! One minute we are dancing to today's Top Hits that my son could even relate to...(You wouldn't think a band could pull off the Cupid Shuffle but think again!!) And next minute we were on the dance floor with my older family members singing "Don't Stop Believing!!!" by Journey... I can't say enough about the whole night with this band!! Never a dull moment and the whole band is enthusiastic in getting the crowd off their feet!!! Every time I hear they are playing a venue I try to rally up my friends and go out for a great night!!! Again...this band ROCKS!!!! Love you guys!!! I'm a forever fan and same goes for my whole family!!! We love you All Tuned Up!!!!! Keep on rockin!

About

With fusing elements of pop, psychedelic rock, trip-hop, electronica, jazz, and rhythm and blues, this diverse, six-piece band from Washington, D.C. challenges audiences and defies easy categorization. Spanning the middle ground between soulful and experimental, the powerful rhythm section of Tommi Nathan (bass) and David Ray (drums) lays the foundation for Liora Valero's provocatively phrased, blues-tinged melodies. Ethereal harmonic arrangements, coupled with chunky rock rhythms provided by Stephen Baker (keyboards/guitar), Avi Elisar (lead guitar), and Regina Fiorentini (sax/keyboards), add the emotional backdrop for the lead singer's intense, but heartfelt lyrics. Satori Trova made its start in 2008 when Liora, Tommi, and Avi first got together to hang out and play some songs. Since then, the band has transformed into a serious but genuinely unique ensemble. Called "a band to keep your eye on in 2012", they have headlined DC venues, such as The Rock and Roll Hotel and The Velvet Lounge numerous times, and were finalists for The Deli Magazine's "Best Emerging Artist" award earlier this year. Most recently, they have been getting an airplay on local radio stations, including DC101, WMUC, and WRGW, and will release their debut EP later this spring. We're one of DC's best new bands available for your next event.

About

"What strikes me about Sote's sound is its rhythm of delight and of soul." (Recent review) Sote, a native of Brazil, blends a personal voice with Joao Gilberto-inspired Brazilian bossa nova, samba, MPB, reggae, African pop, funk, soul, and rock rhythms on his guitar. He has unique interpretations of songs ranging from Antonio Carlos Jobim (Tom Jobim) to standard jazz, from Bob Marley to The Beatles, from Joni Mitchell to Tom Waits, and even a handful of classical pieces. Sote has plenty of experience both as a live performer and in the studio. Please consider hiring Sote for your event, restaurant, bar, lounge, or recording project. Please include the date and type of event for which you seek live music. Rates vary depending on the gig. A small party involving little travel would typically be $250 for two 45-minute sets as a solo act. Weddings are usually $500 for two 45-minute sets, plus travel costs as a solo act. Sote can also assemble a band for your event, and prices are usually $125 per musician, per hour. He frequently performs as a duo (Sote + trumpet), trio (Sote + trumpet + drum kit), and quartet (Sote + trumpet + drum kit + bass). If you can offer a regular gig, rates are negotiable. Studio rates vary based on the complexity and logistics of the project. Prices may vary by location and logistics required (like sound equipment set up). Prices are negotiable for non-profit fundraisers and events. Thank you!
