Orange County Show Bands Feature

Orange County Show Bands Feature

There are many wonderful Orange County Show Bands and Essence Entertainment is proud to represent the best!

The term Show Band usually refers to the size and style of a Professional Dance Band, appropriate for Corporate Events, Fund Raisers, large Weddings, etc.  This type of band generally has 10 or more musicians, incorporates costume changes, performs choreography, and basically presents more of a “show” than a standard dance band.

Here are a few exciting examples of Orange County Show BandsThe Red Hot Band and Stellar!


Another definition of a Show Band is what is referred to as a Theme Band…a band which specializes in a particular style or genre of music.

The Hodads is an example of a Beach Band, and The Kelly Rae Country Band is an example of a hip, current country band.


The term Show Band can also refer to a band which features a particularly charismatic solo artist — Chuck Wansley is a perfect example of this:

Chris & Lisa of Sound FX at Queen Mary

September 10, 2011

Chris & Lisa, members of one of Essence Entertainment’s very popular Variety Dance Bands, Sound FX, have a regular Duo Gig at the iconic Queen Mary in Long Beach.

Not only is the Queen Mary good for a visit, especially if you haven’t been there lately, but the Observation Bar in which they play is absolutely incredible!

Once the original First-Class Lounge, the chic Art Deco Observation Bar in Long Beach is the perfect place to relax, meet friends or simply enjoy the sunset and panoramic views. With original artwork above the bar, art deco tables and chairs, and distinctive torchiere lamps illuminating the room, drink in the 1930’s vibe as you sip cocktails in this retro, elegant lounge.

Chris & Lisa are looking forward to seeing you on Sundays aboard the Queen Mary.  They play from 3pm to 8pm, which puts them playing into the sunset – a spectacular experience from the ship.  The Long Beach skyline looks beautiful, and there’s not a more relaxing way to spend a beautiful Sunday, watching the sun go down, listening to the Chris & Lisa Duo.

Come have Evon, our world-class bartender, make you a margarita.  Sit back and enjoy a relaxing day with us.  The ship is almost free, with validated parking, and alternative parking with shuttle bus makes the ship completely free.  Just enter the Queen Mary Hotel entrance and tell them your are headed for the Observation BarMinors accompanied by an adult are allowed until 7PM. We serve excellent entrees, and people love the “food/drink/music” Sunday experience.  There’s always a Carnival Cruise ship docked next to us on Sunday, and lots of times they let you walk around the cruise ship as well as the Queen Mary. 

Hope to see you there,

Chris & Lisa
