Start your search for a band here.  

Washington DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia are fortunate to host a variety of local bands.   The size and instrumentation of these ensembles is as diverse as the music they perform.

A good starting point for your search is to determine the "Type of Event" you are planning.  Bands listed on this site indicate which types of events they can perform. Searching by type of event will display a list of bands with a brief bio and listing of the style of music each can perform.  Clicking on the band's name will take you to a complete bio and video of that group.  So for example, if you are planning a company party for a group with diverse musical tastes, search "Company Parties," and preview bands displaying the greatest number of musical styles performed.

Sometime it’s more important to consider first the type of music a band performs.  Suppose you enjoy dancing to Motown music. You are planning a wedding reception and it is important your band plays Motown music.  Search by "Type of Music Performed", and select a band that has experience performing Motown music at a wedding reception.  It's that easy.
