We highly recommend The Innocent Bystanders for your next party event!!!! They are beyond fabulous!! Great great music , fun dance songs and extremely easy to work with. If you want to make your party a party hire this band!!!!!
Steve and the band were great. They worked with us to make the experience tailored to our requests and played great music all night. Do not hesitate to have them at any event!
I've been an Innocent Bystanders fan since the first time I watched them last year! The band always knows how to rock out to the best music every time. Whenever they are playing, I always mark the date in my calendar! Watching them is very enjoyable and I will always be one of their number one fans! Go to the next event! It will totally be worth it.
The Innocent Bystanders rocked our backyard surprise party for my husband's 50th birthday. The band was super accommodating and easy to work with regarding set up and playlist. Best of all, the music was terrific!
I hired The Innocent Bystanders to play at Monte Carlo Night, a yearly event held by TJSL's International Law Society. If I can use one word to summarize the experience, it would be phenomenal. The band kept people rockin' and rollin' the whole night long and everyone in attendance absolutely LOVED the band. I cannot recommend The Innocent Bystanders enough.
“We just threw a high school graduation party at our home and The Innocent Bystanders really rocked the house! Their amazing instrumentals and vocals had all ages from 15 – 70+ dancing the night away. They had the right mix of songs that kept everyone entertained and engaged with the party. We’ve had so many compliments from our party-goers on the band – thank you for a memorable night!”
The Innocent Bystanders band has performed three times at The Otay Ranch Town Center. Each time they were huge successes with great energy and crowd participation! They were also very easy to work with regarding coordination and set-up. We hope to have them back soon!
We had a party last Saturday in our backyard and we hired the band “The Innocent Bystanders.” We had a blast! We had used the band two years ago and it was great fun too. Since then, they added a new female singer. Nice combination of songs and music. We danced and some of us sang along. I really recommend them. We had a wonderful evening!

What to Expect
We provide two types of live music sets including rock, soul, blues and jazz.
Our cocktail/dinner sets are designed for periods of your event where the guests want to talk, eat and drink. The music is more reserved, say some Rat Pack jazz, Van Morrison, Amy Winehouse, Sitting on the Dock of the Bay.
Our party/dance sets include lively, danceable rock, soul, and blues from the 50s through today. Our set list is extensive, and we will learn songs for you. Check it out on our GigSalad press kit.
All our sets are played with energy and good humor by a band that has played together for years.
Mature, professional, true band that loves to have fun performing live music. No hired musicians here. We are a close knit group who have been playing together for years. We have male and female vocalists, great harmonies, saxophone, piano and organ, 12-string guitar, harmonica, mandolyn, and a rock solid guitar, bass, drums rythmn section. You won't find a more professional band with a more diverse rock, soul, blues and jazz repertoire. We have played at private parties and public venues across San Diego, including a recent corporate event at PetCo Park.
