Atlanta Party Band’s name almost says it all but there’s even more to know. Leader Charles Smith, a veteran musical-director in the Atlanta touring scene, has put together a group that is custom-tailored to bring an energetic, wow-factor to your event. Charles has a long history in Atlanta as the musical director for Monica, Blackstreet, Keith Sweat, Dru Hill, Beyonce, Ciara, and Omarion. Atlanta Party Band is a dynamic ten piece unit, with five singers out front: three girls and two guys, plus a five-piece band: multi-keyboards, guitar, drums, trumpet and saxophone. The beautiful ladies on the front-line are excellent vocalists with dance moves to match! The two guys are professional and experienced with incredible singing abilities. They have performed extensively overseas in Asia and Europe as well as touring with The Time, Stevie Wonder, Cameo, Jodece, KC & Jo-Jo and P-Diddy. Atlanta Party Band music features all the decades from the sophistication of the swing-era to the hot urban energy of today's hottest hits, with a special emphasis on the great party music of Motown, the seventies and eighties/nineties party rock.
Just wanted you and Charles to know that we enjoyed the Atlanta Party Band SO MUCH!!!! They were spectacular and the level of professionalism was very apparent!!!
They played so many great songs and really made the party get going in a big way! I'm pretty sure every single person in the room was on the dance floor at some point!
I have never heard so many compliments on a band in my entire life! Everyone loved them!!! The bride and groom were blown away and just couldn't stop dancing! I couldn't
get off the dance floor myself!!! So very FUN and so much talent! WOW!!
We will definitely be referring this band and we also have another daughter to get married eventually- so we will be in touch at some point!!!
Honestly, this was a party my guests can't stop talking about and that was due in a large part to your incredible band!
Thank you so much,

So glad you were able to come to Coles' wedding! I wanted to tell you thank you for all of your help and for getting us a great band. The Atlanta Party Band was fantastic and Coles and Mark danced to almost every song.They hardly left the dance floor. It was just want they wanted. The band members were so nice and they keep everyone on the dance floor. Again want Coles wanted and everyone left saying Great, Fantastic , and Best Band !!!!!!! The band definitely makes the wedding, along with other things, and the Atlanta Party Band did make a fun wedding. At the end everyone was chanting one more song!!!!! Which was a great compliment to the band!!! I enjoyed every minute of the band and I have not danced that much since younger days. They were the best and I would highly recommend them to anyone!!! I am going to call Charles myself. Again thank you and I look forward to seeing you again soon and to the next time I need a band.
Have a good weekend.

What a fabulous band!! We had the time of our lives and from watching our guests and hearing their comments, so did our guests. We attribute so much of the success of the evening to Charles and the Atlanta Party Band. At one time on the dance floor (and around the dance floor because we had to extend the space to accommodate everyone who wanted to dance) we had all age groups represented from my 87 year old mother down to our 14 month old grandniece! No one wanted to leave the dance floor because the music was so great and each succeeding song was better than the last.
I can't tell you enough how easy it was to work with Charles. He is such a gentleman and so professional; he made it clear that he wanted us to be happy....and we certainly were. We had so many people asking us all about the band and telling us how amazing they were. Even some of the people working at the venue said the APB was the best band they had ever heard. Thank you so much for helping to make this such a memorable and enjoyable event for us and our friends.
Best regards -

Hi Rick: I really appreciate you following up. The Atlanta Party Band was PHENOMENAL!! I believe they are my new favorite wedding band and you better believe I will be sending more brides your way in the future. I was really impressed not only with their performance but also how easy they were to work with. They were very accommodating and laid back. It made my job so much easier. Jacquie was absolutely thrilled and they helped create the "party" type atmosphere that she really wanted for her reception. Thank you so much for all of your help in making the arrangements and answering all of my questions. I was very very pleased with the whole process.
I hope you have a great summer and look forward to working with you again soon!

Wow Charles - What a class act you are. I never expected such a beautiful thank-you note from you. Yes, I am still recovering. Had family here all day yesterday - and since they are from all over the country it was a blessing to visit with them for an extra day.
You and your band were just phenomenal - That seems to be what people have been talking about the most - and although most in my family have very little sense of rhythm, they love to dance and enjoyed every minute of the evening.
You were all so professional, and believe me you did accomplish what you set out to do - I felt The Point did a wonderful job in making the evening magical, but then you started playing and you were the icing on the cake - You made the evening go over the top of any ones expectations.
Michelle and Josh's wedding will be remembered for a long time. It was a great and magical evening, and you can take a lot of credit for that. Please let every member in the band know how much we appreciated them. Thank you so much,

I'm responding on behalf of Stephanie and Lance, The Cross Family and every single guest of ours at the wedding of Stephaine and Lance last Saturday night, September 24th at the Biltmore. The Atlanta Party Band not only met any expectation that we might have had but TOTALLY surpassed all that we expected!!!! They were professional, first class and VERY VERY entertaining. I had the opportunity to speak to several members before the wedding --- wow what a great bunch of people!!! You should be very proud to represent them! Please pass on our "thank you's" to them also.

Everyone loved them to pieces and Charles is the epitome of a gentleman!

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing, our guests did not stop raving about them. We've heard some really good bands in our lifetime this was tops. Vocals were incredible. It's not everyday I can see my 89 year old mother on the dance floor and really enjoy herself. They were so nice to work with. We didn't want the evening to end.

I just wanted to let you know how pleased my clients and I were with Atlanta Party Band on September 5th. We had new songs for them to learn which they did perfectly and without issue. The venue for the reception changed three weeks before the wedding which was really stressful. Charles assured me that they were fine with the change and were so accommodating. He was in constant contact with me and I never doubted that they would be there and be wonderful. Atlanta Party Band was so entertaining that the bride didn't leave the dance floor for the last two hours of her reception! I'm very excited to work with them again on future events. They are a great band for your company to represent. Thanks again!
Thank you for your help in booking this band. One of the top three I've seen at Mountaintop Country Club. They did an outstanding job and I hope we can book them for another event in the future.

Steve! Just back from my honeymoon.
Wanted to let you know that both Coconut Groove and APB kicked serious butt! I LOVED them. Everyone was raving about both bands.
Will send as much business your way as I can.
THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING! You made me one very happy bride.

Where do I even begin?? Atlanta Party Band absolutely set the tone for our wedding. Beginning with a personal phone call from Charles before the wedding, letting me know that he had seen our first dance song selection (which I was originally planning to play on an iPod), and loved the old standard so much, that he would be honored to learn it and perform it live for us (at no charge or anything). I could already tell Charles was one of the most genuinely nice and thoughtful people that we were going to work with on our special day.
Then at the reception, the band nailed every musical style from A-Z. They played standards, oldies and motown to perfection, and rocked top 40 hits like nobody's business. Empire State of Mind was a particular hit with all the NYers. They gauged the crowd like professionals, and kept kicking things up a few notches as the night wore on. What's more, they literally handed me a mic, and let me get up on stage and sing 'Proud Mary' with them (I'm a musical theater performer by trade)...so that was incredible. They also learned a special song that my Mom had requested--at which point SHE got up on stage and started singing (hilarious!)
Literally everyone at the reception was asking who they were and where they were from--they were making that kind of impression! At the end of the night they did 2 encores, due to the fact that our guests wouldn't let them leave--everyone kept chanting "One More Song!" Charles came up to me and was like "We're happy to keep playing-just make sure we won't get in trouble with the venue!" They weren't sticklers on their end time at all!
I just cannot say enough good things--they are so incredibly talented, accommodating, and genuinely interested in putting on an amazing show. I would recommend them hands down to anyone looking to throw an unforgettable party.

Thanks, Steve. The band did a terrific job and we had a lot of compliments. Thanks for your help. You will always get a glowing recommendation from me so I am happy to pass your name along when I have the opportunity.

What can I say? The band you chose for our Mardi Gras event, Atlanta Party Band, was just awesome.
When the lights came on we still had over 250 still dancing and wanting more. That speaks volumes. I would be glad to recommend this band to anyone.
I'll be in touch and thanks again for your help. It was a great success.

They were just amazing!
I had put such effort into the food/decor/little details...but ultimately it is the entertainment that is the life of the party. And they were! No complaints, only the highest of praise!
My wedding planner spoke pre-wedding with Charles and though he was so nice and "uber professional."
Ask him about the bride doing Beyonce with the girls. Surely one of the more memorable moments of the evening.

APB was simply fantastic!! We couldn't have asked for a better band for Katie's wedding. They were so professional and on top of everything, they were such kind people. I would use them again in a heartbeat and will recommend you and them to others. In fact, I have already sent your info to a friend who was there for the wedding and interested in them for her upcoming daughter's wedding. We can't wait to watch them again once the video comes in to us in the next couple of weeks. :-)
Thanks so much for helping me coordinate them w/ our date...you did an outstanding job!
On a personal note...how are you and your family doing since your father passed away? I know how hard that is and I pray that you are all doing well. It takes a lot of time to grieve and it hits you when you least expect it, sometimes.
Again, if you ever need me for a reference, please do so!
With a grateful heart,
