Why book Nordeast?

Nordeast is a Minneapolis-based 5 piece cover band (80's/90's/current) that is simply in it to have fun. We all have full time careers, so our prices are cheap and our energy is off the charts. We're new in 2011, but we already have a decent following (find us on Facebook) and will bring patrons into your bar/event. Our song choices are completely based on getting the crowd going with mix of 80's, 90's and current era covers.


Great Band!

Nordeast played at our Summer Festival. They did a great job! The music was good and was enjoyed by all age groups. They are very easy to work with. I would reccome3nd them for any event. A great time!

Great Sounding Band, Great to Work With

Nordeast played our event and did a fantastic job. Not only did the band play songs we knew and had us singing along and dancing, they sounded great and were a true delight to work with. They were organized, timely, and accommodating. Everyone at the party had so much fun! People are still talking about our event that was held back in February. Thank you for being a part of Party with a Purpose's success.

Got the crowd going!

I saw their first performance up in Nisswa, MN and have to say they definitely got the crowd going! The song choices are all different periods and types...but they have one thing in common - everybody knows the words and wants to sing along. Great show for a new band and would definitely like to see them again.

We have full time careers outside the band for a fortune 500 company. What does that mean to you? We play for cheap because we like to, not because we depend on the money. We are professionals....we show up on time, we respect your venue and we know that our performance is a reflection of your character. We get excited when the crowd gets excited, so everything we do (from song choices to energy on stage) is designed to get your venue rocking and show you a good time!
