I hired Bob for my dad's surprise 60th Birthday Party. He played outside on the back deck and was absolutely fantastic! He showed up on time, setup his own sound system and got the party going right away. I gave very little direction on what to play (mostly said Springsteen and Rolling Stones and anything 50-65 year olds would enjoy), but he knocked it out of the park. Everyone had such a great time dancing and celebrating. If you love live music, a good party and all the classics (and who doesn't?!), I would highly recommend Bob for your next event! (the photo I attached isn't great quality, but it's the only one I got of just him... in all the others he was hidden because everyone was dancing in front of him!)

Bob did a great job entertaining at my party. His play list was just what we all liked. He was very personable and fit into the evening seamlessly.

We hired Candygram for our wedding and they did a FANTASTIC job!! They were great and very easy to work with before the wedding, but they completely over-delivered on the night of the event. They sounded great and were so high energy, the dance floor was packed all night. We would definitely recommend them!!

The event was a 5th grade end of the year pool party...unfortunately the rain delayed the pool off of the party. This could have been catastrophic but not for Greg. He was up for the challenge and passed with flying colors. He played hula hoop games, played current music and included the kids in on DJ-ing. He was awesome and we were so glad that we hired him for the event! Thank you Greg for all your help and flexibility!

The Chuck Taylors absolutely made our wedding! From our first interaction, Greg was easy to work with and helped keep things running smoothly at the reception. Plus the band kept the dance floor packed all night long. I would highly recommend them for any wedding or event.

We asked Matt W. and his band to play our wedding reception this past August. It couldn't have gone better. Matt was responsive to my emails, arrived on-time, and set up with no issues. I hadn't expected country music to get people dancing as much as it did, but he kept the dance floor packed for four straight hours. They put on an awesome show for us. Thank you again, Matt!

The Sharp4 is a four piece jazz ensemble that knows exactly what they're doing! This band guarantees to draw large crowds - They sound amazing! The Sharp4 finds it difficult to leave the stage at the end of its performance with the audience hollering for more...

Nick and his band are fantastic. The band is comprised of professional musicians who will "wow" you and your guests with their talent and showmanship. In addition to being great musicians, they offer a great blend of 3 part harmony. They play a huge variety of music, are willing to accommodate special requests and Nick is super responsive in his communication. I highly recommend the Nick Netherton Band.

About

The No Name Band is a local Cincinnati classic rock band that has been together for four years; it is a good one, loud and fun! We are comprised of 2 guitars, bass, drums and a new addition that unfortunately, does not yet appear on the website, keyboards (Dan Henning), with three of us also being vocalists. We are all former full-time professional musicians, now with successful business careers but found ourselves a few years ago, missing our music. So, we've decided to get together and form the No Name Band with the desire to work with energetic groups and charity non-profit fund raisers like you. You can see from our website that we only play about 8-10 outdoor events per year and are able to provide our own equipment. We are a lively band with a lot of energy and fun, with a great big sound. Our song list ranges from the '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s, from the Beatles, Santana, Stones to Steely Dan and the Allman Brothers. We are well suited for events, ranging in size from 250 people to 3,000 people. It takes us approximately three hours to set up in advance of the event and one and a half hours to tear down at the end of the event. We require a covered stage due to the amount of equipment involved. Our fee structure runs from $500.00 to $1,200.00, depending on the event size, and we have donated our services for charity fundraisers. If you like good rock n roll, we're your band. Contact Mark Owens, the drummer.
