Since 2009, Foreverland has been mesmerizing audiences around the country with their larger-than-life tribute to the one and only Michael Jackson.Featuring four dynamic vocalists, a powerhouse rhythm section, and the hardest working horn section in the biz, Foreverland recreates hits from the Jackson 5 era through the end of Michael’s incredible career in a way that honors the King of Pop’s musical genius and legendary showmanship like no other tribute band has ever done"

East Bay Mudd is a dynamic 9-piece band that has been thrilling audiences and dancers all over the Bay Area for years with their upbeat and powerful take on Soul, Funk and R&B classics. The band’s approach is to stay true to the songs they cover both in musical arrangement and style. A stellar lead singer and fabulous rhythm section are the basic ingredients for an outstanding band, but East Bay Mudd has an additional feature that makes the band great – a dynamite horn section. Talented band members include lead singer Tommy Banks, drummer T Moran, bass and guitar players Brian Hough and Bobby Cedro, with Cote Reese on keyboards, Michael Peloquin tenor sax and harmonica, Craig Bryant trombone and Cookie Reese baritone and alto sax.
