The Pushers

Why book The Pushers?

The flow of a top DJ with the POWER of a LIVE BAND
The Pushers specialize in what they call "pushes." taking the best parts of popular songs, funk, newer rock, R&B, and classic rock, and "push" them into song sections lasting 10 to 30 minutes. Sometimes they "cross-pollinate" by mixing up genres, like an Average White Band song into Pink Floyd. They play long sets, long songs, and concentrate their efforts on pleasing the venue or event--even learning new songs-- in order for all to get what they want.

Reviews

I'd hire them again without hestation.

The band was GREAT!!! Very professional. Every step of the way I was kept up to date with the band. They were very accessible. Very accommodating to those attending. Some even sang with them!!!!

They were polite, courteous and a pleasure to have. They took our considerations first. If we wanted a song they prepared for it.

I couldn't have been more pleased.

Amazing Band!

I am the Event Coordinator for The Clock Tower Banquet & Conference Center, recently I had a client that was looking for band to play at their company holiday party. They had decided they wanted this entertainment four days before their event, The Pushers not only played amazing music for my clients, but they actually had another show that evening! They're so versatile in the music they offer, they would really be great for any occasion. They played some jazz, rock, and dinner music for this event - but I could definitely see them playing more upbeat stuff for people to dance for. Great job!! I will definitely recommend them to clients in the future!

Overview

The Pushers have specialized in putting popular dance and rock songs into long song sections, called "Pushes." They take the best parts of popular songs and "push" butt them up against each other, overlap, revise, and just have fun. They have added LUCIA, a great female vocalist, who smooths out the all male vocal lineup. We pride ourselves into learning NEW songs all the time, especially if requested for a party or event. We play LONG sets, and take short breaks. We are there to have more fun than anyone else!

Additional Booking Notes

We carry a top quality LED lighting system, and have 3 levels of PA systems, to gear our sound to the venue. Several of us run wireless and interact with crowd when we can.
