What to Expect
Here are some of the advantages of our band:
We strive to honor the sound and feel of the original recordings that you know and love.
Our dynamic performance is 100% live. (We do not use a laptop to play recorded "tracks".) We use multiple live instruments to cover piano, organ, strings, modern keyboard sounds, horns, and of course, guitar.
Live horns help to add variety and realistic renditions of many styles, especially Frank Sinatra, Motown, soul and disco.
In addition to 3 male vocalists, we have a female singer, allowing us to cover songs that all-male bands do not perform. And we do great vocal harmonies.
Our sound system is adjusted for clarity, so that guests can understand the lyrics being sung.
We adjust volume so that your guests can visit with each other without shouting.
We balance “party” songs with more romantic songs, to encourage couples to get on the dance floor.
We have been together as a group for over 20 years.
Here is what some of our repeat clients have to say about the band:

It’s great to hear from you and thank you for following up. We only have great feedback for you and Fantasia. I think it was obvious that you were a hit. So many people stayed and danced. Our board members also gave us positive feedback for the band. I hope you had a good experience
Let’s keep in touch as we will start planning the 2016 Big Gig very soon. Thanks so much!

I would highly recommend Fantasia to anyone. They have played at our fundraiser for many years and I have received nothing but positive feedback from the guests at our events. As the organizer of the event, I love working with Frank and never sweat the details because I know he will accommodate any reasonable request regarding the event. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me

Influences & Inspiration
We play music from over 100 different artists
Even if some of your guests are not big dancers,
they will hear SOMETHING that they can dance to,
and the rest of the night, they will enjoy listening.
We focus on music, not a show.
No gimmicks, no impersonations, no costumes, no karaoke tracks, no crazy hair. Just good music.
When people are on the dance floor having a good time, they are watching each other, not the band.
We have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to entertain great audiences for over 20 years !
