About The Jon Bates Band

THE JON BATES BAND is what’s known in the entertainment industry as a “destination event band”, not your typical “wedding band”! They literally perform all over the world. They have the touring experience, pre-production knowledge and the resources required to effectively navigate all the logistical challenges involved with performing at remote geographical locations, and always offer clients the highest quality and most affordable entertainment options on every level.


"Not only are they incredible, it’s the band I had play for my own wedding!"  

Patrick French, Maitre' D for more than 20 years at The Rainbow Room, NYC

Meet The Jon Bates Band

The Jon Bates Band
For those who may be interested, it’s called "The Jon Bates Band" because Jon is the common thread who, as he describes it, "was blessed with the extraordinary friendships and opportunities that gave me a chance to bring this world class group of musicians and vocalists together as a working unit". He became well established over the years as a music contractor and producer, and was responsible for putting many different performers together for all sorts of musical events around the world. Since Jon was the one who clients, producers, agents, promoters, event planners, and club owners always dealt with, they referred to this collective wealth of musical talent as his band – "The Jon Bates Band".
