These road-worthy guys currently travel and play from New Jersey to Florida and from Louisiana to the Atlantic Ocean and everywhere in between. Their itinerary keeps them on the road playing approximately 180 shows a year.
Since the group's inception, TBC has performed for more than 1 million fans and probably driven as many miles. The majority of their shows are club and college shows but they also do the occasional high school reunions and private/corporate parties.
Formed in January of 1994 in Winston-Salem, NC, The Breakfast Club soared to new heights on the club and college circuit with the then original concept of playing nothing but early 80's dance/keyboard-oriented cover music (see song list). Since then the group has been often imitated, but never duplicated.

Rick, thanks for reaching out and Jerry and the guys were fantastic!
The crowd started slow as we blended out of dinner and cocktails but got more and more into and packed the dance floor by night’s end. The buzz afterwards, on Sunday and the social media chatter has been all really positive! I had three people asking me for your info during the party in the hopes of booking the Breakfast Club in the future so I’ll pass that along.
It was great working with you as well. Jerry, the band and your whole team were true professionals, fun and a pleasure to work with. I’m sure you have plenty, but if you need a reference, please let me know.
The Breakfast Club was fantastic! Our Reunion was 80's themed, and they kept us rocking and reliving that decade the entire night. They had their work cut out for them, as our Reunion ran out of beer at 12:30am. At this point, the crowds would normally have left to check out other reunion sites, but TBC kept a sizeable and enthusiastic group on the dance floor singing and dancing until the end of the night. Everyone had a ton of fun, and received tons of compliments about how much people loved the entertainment. Thanks to the band for a great night and for helping us rewind the clock to that special decade!

The Breakfast Club was OUTSTANDING! We look forward to working with you in the future.
They completely kicked ass and made our wedding amazing. I am 33 and have been to a million weddings but thanks to them everybody thinks ours was the best. We are trying to think of an excuse to have them play again. If not, I will have to stick with the Lincoln theater!
The Breakfast Club was a total sucess at our wedding on June 9. yall were just the best and I think you could tell that everyone enjoyed you (especially my now husband, Hunt.) I appreciate yall playing later than expected and just being beyond great and letting Hunt sing all his ac/dc songs! I hope yall had as much fun as we did.
Friday was one of our biggest Frist Fridays in the past few years! I am still waiting on the official tally but it looks like we had 2,200 people! The line to get in wrapped around to the Federal building a block away. You were such a great group to work with. Thank you so much and we wish you continued success!
Sean and I got back yesterday and were FLOODED with phone calls from people at the wedding about how much they enjoyed you guys. It was a million times better than I could have ever hoped for and you guys were amazing. Thank you SO much again!!!
The Breakfast Club was incredible!! I had heard they would be awesome, but they were an even better fit than I imagined!! I think they picked up on the specific type of music that our group liked the best and went with it. Every year our conference is better and better and this year was no exception, thanks in part to The Breakfast Club.

The Breakfast Club was one of the best band parties we've had in a while. Everyone had an awesome time, and the band put on a great show. Thanks for helping us get that together.
