About

The Fun Starts Here!

In the world of entertainment, your band choices are countless. Life of the Party creator, Jerry Freeman, will help you understand the fundamental truths about his band to make your decision easy. The core band is built around three basic principles:

  • All members must love what they do.
  • All members must be nice and professional people.
  • All members must be extremely talented at their position.

The single most important ingredient that most clients look for is a fun party band. Musicians and singers that love what they do translate into just that. The name of the band reflects their belief that everyone must have a great time.

Nice and professional people make for a great relationship with you and the band. With attention to detail weeks before your event, they will make sure your party is trouble-free. From the song selection to early arrival at the event, costumes, announcements and much more, their goal is for you to say at the end of the night, “This was the nicest and most professional group of people I have ever worked with.” An extremely talented band means you simply get what you paid for and more. With over 800 songs to choose from, their lengthy song list gives you the ability to craft the perfect night of songs to create a memorable evening for you and your guests. If you do not see your first dance or favorite song, simply ask and the band will be happy to learn it. They have a great variety of male and female vocalists, tight rhythm section and awesome horns giving you tons to choose from, unlike some bands that only offer one primary vocalist and no horns. With Life of the Party, you and your guests will enjoy:
  • 3 Hours of non-stop, high-energy entertainment
  • Award-winning national talent
  • State-of-the-art show production
  • Customized song lists, choreography, and costumes
  • World-class service throughout event planning

So, if you are looking to impress your guests and have a great time, book Life of the Party!

Cocktail Hour/Dinner Set

If you desire musical ambiance as your guests arrive, during cocktail hour, or as a soft accompaniment to your dinner, enjoy our jazz trio featuring drums, piano, and bass. Make it a quartet by adding the smooth tones of a saxophone. Our repertoire spans almost every genre of music including soft jazz, Broadway classics, movie theme songs, easy listening, pop, and light Gospel standards.

You can also expand the quartet performance with some sultry vocals from one of our singers or some jazzy horns from our talented ensemble. For that special “intimate touch,” another popular option with our clients is having one of our talented keyboardists as a solo pianist.

“The quartet played during dinner and my wife, a jazz pianist herself, was literally brought to tears as she listened. Awesome!” – Steven Kincaid, Tampa, FL

DJ for Events or After Party

Incorporate our featured DJ into your event, wedding, or after party. During our live performances, our DJ is available as a pre- or post-party host and MC. Alternatively, enjoy them as a stand-alone feature as they spin the hottest tracks of the 80s, 90s, and today, as well as all the standard party tunes.

Drum Line

Add a four-piece “Marching Band Style” authentic drum line to your wedding or event. Complete with Marching Snare, Marching Bass, Marching Tom Tom and Quad Drums, a Drum Line is a unique and interesting way to introduce the bride and groom, to kick off your private party, open sessions for a corporate event, or lead guests from one area to another.

Bride & Groom Intro/Exit

You just got married. Doesn’t that deserve a super cool introduction? Consider horns or a drum role before you officially make your first public appearance as man and wife, or perhaps as you head out to the car to make your exit.
