Introduction: The Afterparty is a true party show band! With entertaining and fun choreography, costumes and props, audience interactions, tight harmonies, and seamless non-stop music sets, we bring an unforgettable spark to every performance! If you choose us for your wedding or special event, you will get a well–rehearsed and thoroughly polished show. We have the kind of chemistry you won’t get from the franchise consortium agency bands that throw together random players who don’t perform together regularly. Just as importantly, Jeff and I are not only the band owners, but are also full-time players in the band. By working one on one with our clients at every step, we personally ensure that every detail is handled properly and thoroughly, and will tailor our performance to meet the specific needs of your wedding or special event from the first email to the final encore number of the night! We take pride in our ability to provide top-of-the-line entertainment at an exceptional value. Our performances involve a wide reaching inventory of popular songs engaging both young and old that will have you thinking the original artist is there, whilst also incorporating our own individuality and musical creativity. We always go above and beyond to fulfill our clients needs, from providing the perfect ceremony or cocktail hour music to transforming your event into an unforgettable experience!

“True professionals and wonderful to work with. The Afterparty went above and beyond to ensure the guests had a great time at our daughter's wedding. I received many, many compliments on the Band and folks were up and dancing all night long until the last song ended. They don't provide just great music but they are also very entertaining. It is apparent they really enjoy what they do. The band has a real connection to each other and their audience. Their communication prior to the wedding was excellent also, they truly want to make your event a success that folks will remember. They accomplished that and then some, wish I could give them 10 stars!” ~Lola F. (MOB. 2022.)

"We recently hired The Afterparty Band to play at a socially-distanced backyard party & they truly exceeded our expectations. They are a great band with amazing musicianship & professionalism. The band consultant Tristin was very easy to work with & provided many flexible options for our occasion. She was also quick to respond to any questions that we had & continued to communicate with us until the event was over. On the day of the event, they arrived in plenty of time to set up before our guests arrived & their set up/tear down was very quick & easy. I cannot say enough about the entertainment that they provided us - the vocals, guitar, bass, tracks, etc. were incredibly impressive. It is obvious that they are a band with dedicated members who work very hard. 2020 has undoubtedly been a tough year for everyone & The Afterparty helped bring some great joy into our lives for a few hours that we needed. Just to be able to hear live music provided by them was simply THE BEST. It was definitely an event that everyone will remember & talk about for a long time! We would highly recommend The Afterparty to anyone looking for a reliable, responsive, & experienced band that plays high energy & entertaining music for their wedding or event- you will be guaranteed an incredibly fun & memorable experience!" ~Freddy and Lisa Haase (Socially Distanced Backyard Party, 2020)

“Absolutely Fantastic Band! The Afterparty band was the perfect choice for our wedding! They were great to work with & very accommodating to our requests, these guys are Pros! The best compliment was that all our guests said the music was fabulous, many guests saying 'this is the best wedding band I've heard'! Each member was very talented, the singing sounded great & they had everyone out on the dance floor, from young to old! Even though our wedding was on a Sunday, our guests stayed late after we left to dance even more! We highly recommend The Afterparty for weddings & special occasions!” ~Brittney H. (Bride. 2016.)

The Afterparty band is absolutely incredible. From the moment we reached out to them, Tristin was so responsive and kind. She and Jeff met us in person to tour the venue. They honestly helped us with a lot of decisions about our wedding, not even related to the music! They are a wealth of wedding-related knowledge. They truly go above and beyond for you. They learned multiple songs for us that sounded so, SO amazing. They cater the whole experience to what you want. They actually came to our rescue the day before our wedding. We had to unexpectedly move our ceremony outside and they let us use their extra PA system and their sound person stuck around the whole ceremony. We were so worried about the acoustics outside, but everything sounded perfect. I can't even begin to explain how amazing they were performing at our wedding. The Afterparty band is not just a band, it's a whole performance. Our guests were completely blown away. To this day, the one thing people keep asking us is "Who was that band??? They were incredible!" I have a friend getting married in Hawaii next year and she came up to me asking how she can fly the Afterparty to Hawaii for her wedding. Another highlight from our wedding was when our friend requested the song "Shout." We had not requested this song in advance and the Afterparty Band wasn't prepared to play it. They ended up playing it and sounded amazing and it was such a special experience for everyone. From start to finish, working with the Afterparty band is all around amazing. Without hesitation, hire them for your wedding or party before they get so famous their schedule will be fully booked!!!!"

What an amazing duo! Tristin Rupp and Jeff Heiser are very talented and versatile performers who can create the perfect ambiance for any event. From sweet ballads to upbeat jams, this duo is flexible to meet any of your needs. The team is easy to work with and they come prepared with all equipment, lights, and even props! They certainly know how to engage the crowd and create an entertaining environment. We had guests of all ages dancing and enjoying the entertainment. After witnessing their remarkable performances at two events with so much positive feedback, I will certainly continue to use The Afterparty for more upcoming events.
