They've toured with such greats as Marvin Gaye, Roger Troutman and Zapp, New Edition, Jesse Johnson, Teena Marie and Kool & the Gang. Their two albums and three single releases in the early 1980's gained them a large and loyal following which they still enjoy. In the wedding and private party market, they are considered one of the hottest acts around. To top it off, they will play your entire event without taking a break!

Gaston did an awesome job!!! It was very hot Saturday and they were set up outside, but you would have never known by the way they performed! They kept the party going. They played music that the group wanted. They did the usual bouquet toss, etc. They were a great asset! The bride and groom didn't want to leave the party! We finally had to tell them that their boat wouldn't be able to wait much longer.
Gaston was great! They played exactly what we were looking for, they had the crowd dancing all night, and only took one break when we cut the cake. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good dancing music and no BS.
The date party was huge success considering we threw it together a couple days beforehand. Gaston was great, they really got the crowd involved and played just the right music. They were easy to work with, and were very flexible about when they started/finished. Thanks again and I'll be sure to put some younger guys in touch with you whenever we need a band again.

Gaston was the perfect entertainment for our crowd's 50th Birthday Celebration! Not only did they play a perfect party/dance mix, they played for four hours straight - no break -and the crowd begged for more when they wrapped at midnight. I'd also like to note how accommodating and pleasant Jerry Reid and his band were to work with. Our set up was less than ideal, and they made it work beautifully! I feel like I've made some great new friends, and will certainly book these guys again as the occasion comes up!

The band that played at my wedding, Gaston, was AMAZING! That band MADE our wedding, as a matter of fact! They were so awesome that my father gave them an extra tip at the end of the evening! They played for Bayne and myself, they played for the children, and they played for our families and friends...that is a very rare quality in a band!!! People danced at our wedding that NEVER get out on the dancefloor~ it was an ABSOLUTE BLAST!!! Also, Jerry Reid could not have been more professional or pleasant to work with over the phone prior to the wedding! In my opinion, they dont charge enough for they're BLAST of a performance! I would recommend Gaston one hundred times over...and then some...to bring to life any special occasion!
