The depth of City Rhythm’s thousand-tune playlist is truly astounding and covers all styles of music, from classic American standards to the greatest rock hits of our time. Lead singers Steve, Rich, Gill and Morgan all add a special qualities to the group with their versatility and dynamic range. Rave reviews from clients who’ve experienced the band’s magic have earned City Rhythm a reputation as one of the top party bands on the scene today.

In addition to a wide range of musical styles that can be performed by various band members there are two unique factors that make City Rhythm stand out from the rest. If you have an keen liking for both the classics and the most modern styles, Steve happens to be (in our opinion) one of the best Frank Sinatra impersonators on the east coast and together with the band will provide the perfect touch of elegance for your dinner. And if you want to end your night with some of the most modern electronic music, Gill actually doubles as a DJ and can provide those services for you along with the band, free of charge.
