The band features vocalist Jay Middleton, who has been rocking parties and festivals since 1985. Jay is joined by his many talented musician friends who also all have decades of high-level experience. Their vast repertoire of songs covers all eras, genres and musical categories, and makes them perfect for all types of events including weddings, corporate events, private parties and festivals.


“Jay Middleton is a timeless performer. It’s rare to find an artist with such a memorable singular voice who is also such an accomplished songwriter and band leader. His original compositions are easily on par with some of the finest original songs I have heard in my venue. I have often said about Jay, that if the label industry was still as relevant and active as they once were, that they would be fighting over him. Jay Middleton does not “sound” like anyone, he sounds like Jay and once you hear him you will find him instantly recognizable and unforgettable.”

“Jay Middleton is a familiar face to Bay Area audiences, having most recently fronted the local party band All Star Jukebox for the past two decades, with a long performing career before that. Though he’s penned songs for others that have charted, Middleton turned his songwriting skills inward during the early days of the pandemic, writing the songs that would become “Forward,” his first solo album. Released in 2022, “Forward” features an uplifting blend of wailing rock guitar, a full-bodied funk-influenced horn section, gentle vocal harmonies — even a light country twang.”
