|BANDS AND MUSICIANS|
Why we book bands.....
In addition to being an event planner and producer, Peggy Phillips knows bands. Peggy Phillips has produced and recorded several hit songs for the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment), in addition to coordinating singers for the WWE Wrestler theme songs, Smackdown and RAW T.V. shows. She has spent most of her life working with bands, developing musical acts, managing musicians, and producing live shows. She understand musicians and know what it takes to make a great band work.
When we recommend a band for your event it will be the band that is the best for your event-not just a band we want to sell you-or a band we have never seen. And, all of our bands are managed by Dial M Production Managers, when Ms. Phillips can not personally attend.
And why should you hire us to book the band? Your event is not just a one time party for us, it's a relationship that we are establishing with you. We want you to turn to us for all your event planning needs. We want you to be completely satisfied.
Standards are important! Music is crucial to any party. We maintain standards with our bands that require them to be on time, dress properly, take the agreed upon breaks, match the video we are showing you, and stay away from your bar. It's your party and your band should provide the entertainment we have agreed upon.
Let us take responsibility for your band so you can relax and enjoy the party

HIT SQUAD COVER BAND
I would like to recommend the band Hit Squad. They play a bit of everything and everyone in the band sings. I call this band the "Live DJ" because they know so many songs. They are one of Disneylands top performing bands, so they're very professional and concerned with maintaining their high quality of work ethics. They're well groomed, on time, don't drink, stay on schedule, and comfortable working for all ages. They can play every style of music, even country. They can take requests, will learn a song for you, can perform light Emcee duties, and know how to interact with a crowd to make the event a party. The following will give you an idea of what they can offer you: Typically, we start en evening with what we call "dinner music". Low key - easy listening - jazzy stuff. Some songs would be: Breezin' (George Benson) How Sweet It Is, Nora Jones, a few standards like Fly Me to the Moon. Second set we move-it-up a knotch with recognizable R&B & classic songs like "Heard It Through the Grapevine" ,"It's Alright to Have a Good time", "Don't Be Cruel", "Groovin'", Layla... 3rd and 4th sets we'll bump it up to dance music with Classic oldies, R&B, Disco, Pretty Woman-Brown Eyed Girl-Love the One Your With-Get Down Tonight, Mustang Sally, Dancin' In the Streets, Heatwave, Jump Jive and Wail, Play that Funky Music, Santana, Beatles, Disco, Pop, Latin... music to dance to/upbeat party music.

With their debut CD "Supernova" just released and their World Tour just beginning, Liquid Blue ("Best Contemporary Band 2003" and the #5-ranked cover band overall) is gaining recognition as one of the world's most talented original rock/pop dance bands.

While they are also one of the top cover bands in the country, performing 70s, 80s, 90s and current dance and pop covers, they also perform exciting original dance hits-to-be like the upbeat "Rhythm Of Love" and pop ballads like "Rescue". Their female back-up vocalists' choreography is nothing short of sensational (We rank them in the Top 3 of choreographed bands in the U.S.). They have now performed on every continent in the world and in 2002, they performed for 65,000 in Dalian, China and in 2003 in Tahiti. Liquid Blue was voted "Best Cover Band" at The 2002 San Diego Music Awards.

U2 TRIBUTE BAND
It's no easy gig being a tribute band, particularly when your inspiration is U2. Not only are they one of the highest profile bands on earth, but their legendary musical ability, passion and vitality are an integral part of the complete package. For a tribute band, this means you have to look right, you must do justice to some of the finest rock music ever written and you have to capture and transmit that indefinable energy that fuels U2.
Having toured extensively through over 20 countries,including many shows for the U.S. Department of Defense, this U2 Tribute band is here in the United States.
About the show:
This 2 hour extravaganza covering all stages of the bands career from “Boy'” to “All that you can't leave behind”, opens as we are whisked back in time to the ZOO TV tour. The leather trousers, the huge Fly shades, and, just as essentially, the tongue in cheek 'Dadaesque' Bono. In the first hour-long segment we are treated to all the highlights of the Zooropa tour as well as the cream of U2's earlier hits.
Part two sees the four re-emerge on-stage in the guise of today's Elevation era U2. As well as songs from the current album, we get a series of 'classics' that have wowed audiences the world-over for years. After another hour of blistering performance the Boys leave the stage to the strains of the elated crowd singing “How long to sing this song?” from the anthem “40”.
Dueling Pianos, a piano duo offering a Las Vegas-style show of comedy and extensive audience participation featuring an unlikely and surprising mix of music and parodies that range from classic rock and country to rap and show tunes. The key to their marathon of musical comedy, however, is the unabashed and completely liberated participation of audience members from 18 to 80.
The show takes on an organic nature, feeding not just on the kinetic performing energy but on the audience's growing confidence and comfort level about the impromptu acting, dancing, or singing that is heartily welcomed by everyone in the house. Group toasts, good-natured ribbing of individual audience members put briefly under the glare of spotlights, and the firm yet gentle recruitment of reluctant show participants add to the camaraderie that develops during a DUELING PIANO performance.
