Modern and Classic Rock. From Corporate Events to Private Weddings and Parties. Performed at events for DISNEY - BUDWEISER - SONY PICTURES - MICROSOFT - LA DODGERS - ANAHEIM DUCKS - IBM - HP - DELL - HOUSE OF BLUES - USS MIDWAY - PETCO PARK SAN DIEGO - PLUS MANY MANY MORE. Named 'BEST COVER BAND' by CBS/LA and multiple 'Best Rock Cover Band' awards.
Even though I've seen The Trip perform 3 times before and was impressed each time, as were all my friends, I was nervous in hiring any band because an entire New Years Eve event hinged on the success of the band (as did my reputation). Turns out I had no reason to worry because The Trip pulled off the best NYE performance we've ever had. From the first song the dance floor was packed, and it stayed that way all through the night. The Trip can play to any audience, and our group's age was perfect for the 60s to 90s music that they targeted for us. One of the most common comments we heard was that The Trip sounded just like the original bands that made the songs famous. You don't often hear a band that can pull off Journey, the Eagles and AC/DC very well. They even learned a song just for our event which had a James Bond theme, so they opened with the James Bond theme song. It made for an awesome night.
Response from The Trip:
Thank you, Dan for entrusting us with your very special event. I'm so glad you and your guests enjoyed our show. I know we had a great time as well. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
What to Expect
Can provide PA and/or stage plot for sound company.
Good attitude and easy to work with.
MORE ROCK, LESS SHLOCK! You and your guests will be entertained by a high energy, genuine rock band that takes you on a fun-filled musical journey through the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's … as well as today's Top 40 and rock hits.
For over 16 years and 1000's of shows we've been one of the most popular booked bands in California, have won multiple “Top Rock Cover Band” awards, and were named best cover band by CBS.
We have entertained some pretty famous customers. While performing at his daughter's wedding, we were joined onstage by no other than rock legend Michael Anthony from Van Halen and Chickenfoot. We've also had the honor of being joined by country superstar Toby Keith at his “OK Kids Korral” benefit concert, and Stephen Stills from Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young sat in with us at his Bel Air event.
Are you planning a corporate event or private party? Concert for your local park? We are the official Los Angeles Dodgers pre-game party band and have rocked the deck of the USS Midway.
The world's largest companies have enlisted us to make their events fun, successful, and memorable. We've travelled across the country and rocked hundreds of events for Microsoft, Disney, Lucasfilm, IBM, HP, Sony Pictures, Budweiser, Dell, Cisco, Intuit and many more Fortune 500 companies.
Hundreds of our customers are folks just throwing a party! We are a top choice for any size rock themed party, concert or event, big or small … and we love to play at weddings! Are you a couple who wants something different for your wedding day? Choose us if you don't want the same type of black suit band or DJ that you've seen at every one of your friends' and families' weddings.
We have performed at hundreds of weddings and each one has been a unique experience. It's YOUR reception so choose the playlist to your life. If its Maroon 5, Black Keys, Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars or 80s hits, or The Beatles, Stones, AC/DC, Journey, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, FOO Fighters—whatever suits you and your guests. YOU can create the playlist from our songlist of over 250 songs. We will deliver an authentic jive-free concert-quality performance. No tuxedos. No horn section. No backup 'singers'. Oh … and unlike other bands, we have a guy singing “Locked Out Of Heaven”
Along with great reception music we can provide elegant, wonderful ceremony music (Solo Classical and Contemporary Guitar), Cocktail Music (Solo and Duo), Emcee services for reception and activities (free), DJ music—any genre (free), and multi-colored stage lighting.
Thank you for your time and consideration. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We are here to help you make your event a success.

We were so impressed with this band. We hire a band each year for this annual fundraiser. As the coordinator of the event, I field all the complaints when the crowd is not pleased with the band. The Trip received RAVE reviews from all those in attendance on April 18, 2008. The fee was slightly beyond our usual budget, but the gamble totally paid off! They were great, wonderful, talented, professional, charming and flexible. We thoroughly loved them! ...a really, really good band. I would certainly hire them again and recommend them to anyone who asked.
It is a rare that I would book a group without seeing them, however the Trip came so highly recommended that we took the chance. The band was early for the set up and sound check, very flexible with their playlist, and even allowed one of our attendees come up and play with them. We definitely look forward to working with them again!!
Dear Trip: Who says you can't dance to Led Zepplin? Or U2, Pink Floyd or the Beatles? Can I say you guys rock? My wife and I disagreed about our choice in music and bands for my 50th recently. Luckily it was my birthday and I won out. We enjoyed everything about our night with you all and your performance made my weekend even more special. You guys are pros yet not pompous and VERY accomodating. Thanks for letting my 13 year old drum with the band and even a no-talent old rocker like myself get up there and sing (lipsync) to some of my favorite tunes. All our friends raved and talked of flying you to Chicago for another gig. Simply the best.
The Trip did an amazing job...They Rocked our Corporate Cruise to the max...They took every request that we threw at them and then some...Their musical chops are incredible and they are some very cool guys...I would book them again in a heartbeat!!!
The Trip was an amazing band to work with. Their positive, helpful attitude coupled with great talent made for a fantastic event! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality cover band. Thanks for everything gentlemen!
I booked The Trip to play at my yacht club, Balboa Yacht Club, opening day party and they made the event! They were on time, very professional, and they where good sports about participating in the theme of the party. They have amazing singing abilities, every member was a strong performer and the drummer was remarkable. The next day I ran into some of the residents on Balboa Island and they even enjoyed the music from across the harbor! Everyone was dancing until the final song. This is an amazing accomplishment because the demographic at our club ranges from members in their 20’s to the most senior of members. Even the Commodore was dancing
We booked The Trip for our wedding reception in San Francisco in May 2008. We were a little hesitant to book them at first since we hadn't seen them perform live ourselves. But we had a feeling from their press kit, playlist, and feedback from other clients, that they were the high energy and talented band we were looking for to help make our reception a great party. They really delivered! They had everyone on the dance floor the entire time and even got an enthusiastic encore! The songlist was great. They performed our special request songs which aren't on their playlist without a hitch! They were professional, on time and great to work with. Book the Trip!
I am not even sure I can put into words just how talented these guys are. My wife first saw them at a charity event before we were even engaged. She came home and said "if we ever get married, I have our band." From there we saw them at a few gigs around town, and we were immediately fans. They just know how to play. They were easy to work with, completely professional, yet artists to the core. We had a requested song which they learned in merely one week. Our wedding was a giant party, and The Trip played right into it. They were warriors, going basically non-stop for over three hours - they kept the place dancing and never stopped. Thanks Guys!
The Trip was AWESOME! They were very cooperative in working with our event planner and our special program, and the quality of their music was FANTASTIC! As the person responsible for hiring them, I received nothing but positive comments about the band.
Booking The Trip for our wedding was the single best decision we made. They were amazing! All of our guests are still raving about them, and here I am on my honeymoon doing an online review because I love these guys SO much and would refer anyone who wants to have the best party of their life to book them! Only problems were that 1. I never got to eat cake because I kept waiting for them to play a song I didn't like which never happened, and 2. I danced my toe-polish off which I didn't even know was possible. Trip- if you're reading this. PLEASE consider a re-lo to NJ so I don't have to fly all the way out here to have my next party! Love, Erin & Carl
The Trip was an amazing group of guys with extraordinary talent. We gave very little direction and they took it upon themselves to show us a great time and succeeded. From the moment the band started until the moment they finished, the entire party was up dancing! I cannot wait until my next opportunity to see them again. The Trip rocks!
The Trip was truly amazing. They were professional, prompt, courteous and played incredible music. We had a great experience having The Trip play at our party. They made my 40th birthday one that I will always remember. Our friends and family are still raving about how good the band was! Thank you for making our party a blast. Julie and Justin
All of the Band members are very talented and quite accomodating. Everyone in my 50th Birthday bash had commented to me how wonderful The Trip was. Even the "younger" family members who are not really into Classic Rock and Roll had told me without prompting them how wonderful and talented The Trip were. They were on time, courteous and professional in every way, and played all the songs I had requested, and even learned a few songs at my request for my party. They are Way too cool, I could not have had a better experience with another band in the Southern Califorinia area. I will ask for them at my next bash which I hope will be sooner than later. Raul in L.A.
The Trip truly made our wedding reception--solid rock classics, great vocals, awesome attitude made for a killer performance. Our collective guests had been to hundreds of weddings, and each one of them said this wedding was the the most fun, and The Trip helped make that happen. My father said he's never danced for 4 hours straight before. If you want a true party, book these guys; I plan to try mightliy to get them to the east coast to see them again.
Since our wedding 2 and a 1/2 weeks ago, we have heard nothing but raving about The Trip! Steve and his crew did such a great job and were very accomodating to our special needs. We would recommend The Trip only to those who want the best band available!! Thanks again you guys, you rock!
These guys were awesome, professional, fun and rocked. I hired them sight unseen for a high end wedding in Carmel Valley and it could not of gone better. There video on the site does not fully capture how great this band was. We still have people from our wedding asking about these guys. I would recommend these guys 100% for your event!
The Trip was fantastic. One word that comes to mind is "awesome." they made our wedding extra special. the guests are still talking about how great the band was. the dance for was crowded from the moment they began playing and continued throughout the night. Not only did they play exceptionally well they really helped out with the flow and timing of the wedding. thank to the trip our wedding was phenomenal.
I couldn’t have asked for a better band to perform for our event. This was a corporate function, but I would use them for any event. I heard about them through the site I was using for our party and went on line to check them out. The clips of songs they had posted sold our company and me right away. When they performed, they proved that we were right about them. The song list was a variety that all enjoyed and guest loved when request were taken. They were professional and easy to work with from start to finish. The Trip was a hit and many of my guests talked very highly of them and wanted to know how I found them. All I can say is that you will make any functi
The Trip was the perfect band for our wedding! We wanted a group that would not play all of the standard songs that are always heard at every wedding or event--more classic rock--less cheese. We didn't even have a chance to hear them live first--just took the word of others they had worked with before of how good they were. They responded to all of our calls, emails, and requests quickly and were very easy to work with. They even came extra early to set up and waited several hours to play with no complaints. Everyone loved their music and how they played to the dancing. I would hire them again with no reservations--great group of guys and very talented!
Besides being an awesome band, these are four of the nicest people I have ever met. So talented and accommodating, I would recommend The Trip to anyone and everyone that wants to have a great party. My guests were raving about them all night. In addition, their professionalism went about and beyond my expectations.
The best and easiest decision we have ever made was booking the trip for our wedding. My wife and I had the most amazing night of our lives, and it was due mostly to how much our guests, families, and friends enjoyed the night of dancing and killer music that The Trip delivered. This is an amazing band, do yourself a favor and hire them for whatever event you might have coming up... you and your guests will have the time of their lives and The Trip will always make you feel comfortable that you've made the correct decision by hiring them. When these guys aren't playing their many types of events, they are rocking the bars. Go see them play, you'll be sold!!!!
My family and I had such a great time listening and dancing to the band. We continued to receive compliments all evening about how good they sound, the song selection, and their overall attitude. I highly recommend this band for a wedding, birthday, or any party.
The Trip was nothing short of spectacular. We received complements from every person who attended our wedding, including passers by. The band was fun, professional, accommodating, and truly warm/good people. We were honored to have them as a part of our wedding, and have already recommended them to friends. It was a night we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Jena and Jeremy Meredith
They were fantastic! Great playlist, great showmanship, reliable. They adjusted the tempo according to the energy on the dance floor. My staff has been complimenting them since the party! Will definitely hire them again!!!
The Trip richly deserves their #1 rating. We engaged them for our daughter's wedding 12/27/08 in Santa Barbara. Not only were they professional, prompt and responsive, but they are an incredibly talented group. We had an equal mix of 20-somethings and over-50s in attendance, and everyone raved about the band. Our photographer (who has shot many, many weddings) said she had never seen so many people flock to a dance floor at a wedding before. Our wedding coordinator, who has worked with many bands but never before with the Trip, said to us, "Great call on the band." Bravo to the Trip. Steve & Peggy, Santa Barbara.
HIRE THE TRIP!!! I am telling you that you won't regret it. We had them for our NY Eve wedding and they were AMAZING! They are extremely professional, very nice, and most of all, talented. Everyone was getting their business card afterwards and was talking about how great they were days later. One of the managers at the Four Seasons where we got married told me that in the 9 years he worked there, it was the best band they have ever had there. I wished they could have played for us every night. They sounded like the bands whose songs they cover. I am telling you-if you want a great event, wedding etc. hire them!!!!!!!!
The Trip was great. Good guys....Nice, professional, talented. They are very tight musicians and stay on top of the hits, old and new. As th groom, it really felt good because it was our weddding, but it was essentially a concert as well. The attendees of our wedding loved the band. When we ran into our friends and family after the wedding, usually the first thing out of their mouth would be how great the band was. Thanks to The Trip, and when we have another event, we'll hire them again.
Its obvious why The Trip is the number one band on gigmasters,these guys are awesome.They are not only very talented musicians,but professional,reliable,easy to contact,and best of all way cool peeps.They played at our wedding,and EVERYONE loved them.Dance floor was never empty.If your asking yourself,(like I did)"Will these guys be really as good as everyone says they are,or will they be too hard rock to cater to everyone regardless of age"Don't worry,they're perfect for any occasion you'd possibly imagine.Oh yeah,they also learned 'Faithfully'-Journey,for our first dance,and nailed it.Im trying to think of another party to have,just so I could book them again.
The TRIP was incredible. I truly cannot say enough positive things about them. I had SO much fun at my wedding and danced the night away-as did all my guests-which is EXACTLY what I had hoped for. They made our wedding so much fun and I received endless compliments from such a wide range of ages and personalities on how great the band was. It was the best money we spent.
The Trip was awesome! Highly recommended!!
The Trip made our 40th bash SO much fun! Absolutely everybody loved the band and at certain points, the entire party was on the dance floor! No one could stop talking about how great the band was. Thank you for making our party so much fun for everyone!
The Trip is an amazing band! My guests had a great time dancing to their music all night long. Three people from my wedding want to use them for other events. They are fun, professional and talented. They rocked my wedding! Thanks guys!
After having The Trip play at our wedding, I can see why they are the #1 requested band on Gigmasters! They left our group of 120 wanting more. They learned new songs we requested, played the songs we wanted, and downloaded tunes we asked to have available onto an MP3 player for music during the break (although they never took one...we were having too much fun!!). My only regret is we started the dancing too late. When you book the Trip, get the band started early!! These guys rock the house! Can't wait for our next party with the Trip.
The Trip exceeded all of our expectations! Not only were they BEYOND talented, they were so nice and personable.I can't wait to book The Trip again!They made our event!Jimmy, Steve, Erik and Steve: What an amazing band! You were absolutely the best part of our school party. The wide range of music you played, and so well, was a complete surprise and so very welcome! So this mom of 3 from New Jersey, growing-up in the 80's, has gotten lost in Radio Disney, Raffie, the Wiggles, etc. Hearing all your covers of some of the best songs, just brought me back to the good old days of having no responsibility (like 3 little kids) and just lovin' rock music! I could have listened to you all night ... groupies! Best wishes for continued success.
The Trip were fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to others, as well as booking them again for any future event we hold. They made our wedding when it came time for dancing, a rocking event. They were a delight to deal with and very accomodating. We would classify them as a highly talented group of musicians who demonstrated a complete command over every song they played. We received many compliments from our guests about The Trip and heard over and over again how it was the best music anyone had ever experienced at a wedding. Thanks again to The Trip and we look forward to having them again at one of our parties!
Great Band but a better bunch of guys. They really made my birthday party a success. I would and will rehire them in a second.
This is our second time booking The Trip. They are a great band with a lot of talent, very easy to work with. This band has a wide verity of music. We enjoyed having them perform at our Holiday Party. I had a number of guests enquire about the Band. They thought they were great and it truly showed with the number of guests on the dance floor. Thanks again guys we had a blast!
The Trip was great for our wedding, they were energetic, engaging, and everyone had a great time... they were great to work with, very accomodating, and we really enjoyed them. I would highly recommend them!
I just want to thank you for playing at my Daughter Heather's wedding on May 19th. The Trip is one of the best bands that I have listened to. Every song you played was just wonderful, you captured the sounds of the original artist on every song you played. My daughter called me again from her Honeymoon in Italy just to tell me once again how happy she was that we were able to have your band play at her wedding. I have gotten so many complements on the band from people who were attending the wedding and have already had several people ask for your contact information for future events they are planning. You kept people dancing all night long. Thank you again for making my daughters wedding night something she will remember for the rest of her life.
Thank you so much! We really enjoyed having The Trip part of Monster Bash. We had a great turn out and glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves... WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll definitely keep you in mind for future events. Thanks!
Great performance. Great time. I heard a lot of great response from the crowd.
I think this band was great. They were exactly what I was looking for and very easy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone!
The Trip did a great job at our party. I highly recommend them and will hire them again in the future.
The Trip was a terrific band. They were accomodating with the time, travel, risers and music list. The video of them was great so my husband went to Laguna Beach to see them in person. He was wowed and we booked them right away. Our event was on Aug. 11 and our guests are still telling us what a great band they. We'd definitely use them again and recommend them.
These guys were absolutely awesome! Great music, great interaction with crowd; moreover - impressed corporate executives with their talent & sound! Easy to work with and a crowd favorite - WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone!
