Alternate Take is a group of four talented musicians that have joined forces to make one of the most impressive bands in the region.  Each member has played professionally since their teen years and educational backgrounds include music degrees and Masters degrees.  Not only are they well versed in contemporary party and dance music, but also jazz standards of yesteryear, and classical music of centuries past.

This is not just your typical wedding or cover band; this group of songwriter/composers can write a theme for your event that will appeal to almost any crowd.  If there is a song you want performed, Alternate Take can do it.  Some of the famous stages these musicians have played include Jazz Fest of New Orleans, the famous Cotton Club of New York, Carnegie Hall, Bobcats Arena, and Panther Stadium to name a few.  Members have shared the stage with national acts like Hootie and the Blowfish, Edwin McCain, and Sister Hazel.  Alternate Take knows how to adjust the music they play to fit the crowd.  One of the advantages of knowing so many songs and styles is the ability to customize what they play to fit the mood and occasion at hand.  Corporate events, private parties, and festivals are performed with energy, enthusiasm, and style.

If you're looking for an experienced group of musicians that are still in touch with current music to play your wedding, look no further.  Alternate Take's musicians have done hundreds of weddings, and know the ebb and flow of the event.   Although each wedding day is unique, the experience of doing so many helps them to be prepared for anything that might happen.  Your cake cutting, flower toss, and garter toss will be announced by the band as needed, so you don't have to worry about that.  A wireless microphone will be provided for any announcements for your special day.  Your job is to enjoy yourself, let Alternate Take care of the music.
