Play is a 5-piece band of veteran musicians from the tri-city area of East TN. With years of experience behind them, there is a complete mix of veteran and fresh talent to give you an energetic performance that will bring you up out of your seats. You will hear music from Madonna, Blondie, Benatar, Huey Lewis, Duran Duran, Roxette, Berlin, and many, many others. Play doesn't play music you can dance to; they play hits that make you want to dance!
Play is experienced with all types of events, from parties to clubs, fair to festivals, reunions to cotillions, and especially weddings; we have done so many, we can even help plan the entire event.
"I've never dealt with a band more prepared, professional and accommodating. I did not have to do one thing for set up or take down."
"Play (formerly "The SoundDrivers) were a great ending to our event. They kept the music going, and the crowd rarely left the dance floor!"
Quotes like these are common around the members of Play.
