Who says a jazz band can't party. Klaxton Brown is the ultimate party Band. Combining the old with the new Klaxton's sound will blow you away. You'll be more than satisfied after hearing this great band. Jazz Saxophonist Robert (Bo) Bohannon formed Klaxton Brown in August 2005. He sought out diverse, seasoned, experienced, musicians that could help develop and influence the sound he was looking for. That sound and influence includes just about every genre of music including jazz, R&B, funk, gospel, pop, country and big band. These diverse influences combine to form a unique and enjoyable band.
Hello Mr. Bohannon:
We would all like to thank you for the fantastic musical performances at the Holiday Party! The instruments and the voices came together magnificently during all the great dance hits that were played by the band! The music was truly enjoyed by so many, it was wonderful to see a packed dance floor into the late night! We were thrilled to have you be a part of this evening!
We, of course, would especially like to thank you for the wonderful rendition of "We are the World" that was played especially for our "chief's performance"...It turned out great!, and was a memorable part of the evening for us. Thanks for helping to make it special. Wishing you and the band many enjoyable performances to come.

Lady and Gents,
I cannot thank you enough, or sing your praises enough. My daughter's wedding reception was a smashing hit with everyone who attended. Your band was fantastic and the music made the night.
You guys are great and I will absolutely recommend you to anyone who asks. Thanks so much for putting on such a good show. We loved it!!

The band was great. Everybody loved them. People were commenting two days later about how much fun our band was. One guy asked me (I think seriously) if it was true that Klaxton Brown was related to James Brown.
Thanks for hooking us up, I'll be sure to pass EastCoast Entertainment on to the next social chairs for future events.

Graham- Klaxton Brown was great in every way. Bo and Al were there to set up early and I enjoyed talking to them as we all got ready. They all really played beautifully and obviously enjoyed it and that comes through. All her Richmond friends and the many UVa kids and Shannon and I stayed on the dance floor and they played a great Happy Birthday version for Ramsey. Thanks for your help.

We so enjoyed Klaxton Brown! Robert and his group kept the party going from their first song until lights up. They were a joy to work with and could accommodate all of our requests. Thanks for checking in with me this morning.
Have a great week,

Klaxton Brown was by far the best band we have had since my time in Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Their entertainment pushed our annual Pig Roast to the best it has ever been. Many of our alumni commented on the excellent band and even our campus safety officers wanted to purchase a CD. I know that the brothers and I would enjoy having them back in the future. The band's energy really kept the party alive. The set list was extensive and varied with all of our favorite songs. From all the brothers here at Sigma Alpha Epsilon, thank you for bringing your entertainment to us. And once again, we can't wait till next year so we can hopefully book Klaxton Brown again.

Good to hear from you. Last weekend went really well-thanks again for all your help. Klaxton Brown blew all of us away. I heard from more than a few people they were the best party band they had ever heard. They were the best band I personally have seen while in Chi Psi, and they really made the event. You knocked it out of the park with that one!

Sorry its taken me a while to get to you! Klaxton Brown was the best band we've had yet!! They were extremely courteous and professional. I worked mostly with Robert and he could not have been nicer and more accommodating. The venue wouldn't let them set up in the room until an hour and a half before the party began, and they didn't complain at all. They played music everyone enjoyed....in fact, they didn't play a song that cleared the dance floor once. Everyone had a great time dancing to their music. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Klaxton Brown was better than advertised, if that is possible... They were incredible to work with from the beginning to the end. They take pride in not only their music, but the way they treat "the customer". Their music may be "timeless" and you may have heard it 100 times before from a 100 different bands, but until you see and hear them then you really don't know what "Klaxton Brown" is about! They were professionals in every way and I hope to have them back again in the near future.
