We are an award winning* eight piece band with powerful and passionate vocals that lead the band in front of energetic horns and an unstoppable rhythm section. We play a wide variety of functions from weddings, corporate functions to a gathering of friends and family. We can warm things up gradually with a set of swing and jazz or jump right in to the fire, weaving together your favorite R+B, funk, classic rock, disco and top 40. We do songs just the way you fell in love with them, and we pack dance floors. Whether a large reception, small gathering or ceremony, The NINES know the music that fits the mood and deliver a professional performance that will make your event a joyful celebration.
Our name comes from the expression “dressed to the nines” meaning “to the highest degree from head to foot.” We strive to play “to the nines” at every event we participate in, including yours.
