Act Profile

Dance Nation

Dance Nation - one of the most in-demand function bands of the Midlands and South West were formed in 2001, and have performed hundreds of live stage shows at some of the most prestigious and exciting venues in England. In September, the band headlined at RAF's Benson's Battle of Britain concert, entertaining more than 1,000 troops. Last Xmas, the band played at the Lloyds TSB's Xmas Party at a concert venue with a capacity of 3,500 called The Centaur. On NYE, this band was chosen as the headline act at the Cheltenham Town Hall, entertaining 1,000 people.

Dance Nation is a group of consummate professionals, whose members have more than four decades of stage experience between them. Between them, the band members have worked with the likes of The Weather Girls, Steve Winwood, The Wonderstuff, Lipps Inc, Mott the Hoople, Fairport Convention, Robert Plant, Judas Priest, and Nigel Kennedy. The band has attracted press interest, and its lead singer, Suzy Jacoby, has appeared on BBC television and radio, and recently had two of her songs played on the hit US show 90210 (series 2, episode 17).

Dance Nation bring energy and verve to the live stage, where every performance is a special occasion. When this band rocsk a house, they really rock it (at a recent wedding gig, the band did a record seven encores!) Take a look at the rave reviews from radio stations that have aired them, and from delighted customers who have hired them

The band can play for up to 3 hours of live music, and should you wish, you can also add a jazz trio, or DJ to your night. Background music, to suit your tastes, is played between sets.

Dance Nation is one of the most versatile bands you'll ever see. Mastering many different genres is the true hallmark of an accomplished and professional band, and Dance Nation will rev up your audience with rock and roll, fizz the house with disco and electro pop, and serenade guests with smooth romantic jazz and ballads. The band has the range and repertoire to delight every musical taste.
