Due to the incredible success of Party On the Moon… from President Obama's Inaugural Ball in DC to Eli Manning's wedding in Cabo…producer Dennis Smith, decided to create a second Party On the Moon. Rather than confuse buyers as to which version of Party On the Moon you would be buying and having two bands named Party On the Moon, he decided to create a sister band. With over a year in the making, he introduces Party On the Moon’s SISTER ACT...Simply Irresistible!
Same song list, Same great musicians, Same Grammy nominated line-up and Same THREE HOUR NON-STOP show, Simply Irresistible is already making a name for themselves in the private and corporate party markets. As legend Philip Bailey ( lead vocalist for Earth, Wind and Fire ) wrote, "Sit back and enjoy my favorite corporate and private party band, Simply Irresistible. My great friend, Ronnie Garrett, ( leader ) has put together an awesome band for any event needing great entertainment. To me, Simply Irresistible, is Simply….Out of this World!"
The band's front line features an AllStar cast of vocalists and musicians:
Toni Braxton's sister, Trina
A Canadian Idol
A Chicago Idol Winner
A former Party On the Moon lead vocalist
A male vocalist just off Broadway.
The bands pedigree is strong….Band leader Ronnie Garrett and drummer "P-Nut" Johnson are 2007 Grammy nominated producers for their work on Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion soundtrack. Lead vocalist Stephani Parker has recorded with Grammy winner Kanye West. Kayte Burgess has released her sophomore album "Checked Baggage", and on and on...
The core band is nine pieces featuring a four piece band ( lead guitar, bass, drums and keys ) and five lead vocalists. To that you can add several layers of excitement:
The Irresistible Hornz - This four piece Grammy award winning horn section, who has performed with eight time winner, Mary J. Blige, is killer! If you love horns, the Irresistible horns are a must!
The Irresistible Trio - Perfect for cocktails/dinner music to create the ambiance you need prior to the band going on. An affordable option to give you four hours of non-stop fun! They can perform on the same stage with the band or easily set-up in a different room if needed.
The Higher Power Choir - Already a powerful choir performing with Party On the Moon, this eight ( 8 ) to thirty ( 30 ) piece choir is like bring a Gospel church into your own backyard! Whether used at the wedding ceremony and the reception or for a general session opening for your corporate event, The Higher Power Choir will warm your event and get all to sing, "It’s getting hot in here, I wanna take my robe off!"
The Irresistible Strings - Whether four ( 4 ) or six ( 6 ) strings are needed, this classy touch adds elegance to any event. Whether needed to class up your event or added to rock with the band, these ladies will surely add style.
So there you have it…killer musicians, nice people and the burning desire to be better than Party On the Moon….SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE, Party On the Moon's SISTER ACT. For more info check out their site at www.preparetodancenow.com
Things went extremely well on Friday. Ronnie, Trina, and the rest of the Simply Irresistible Band were SIMPLY AMAZING! From the moment they took the stage, they WOW'd our sales reps and rocked the house! They sung their hearts out all while dancing up a storm and yet never once seemed tired. Where do they get their energy?! They truly are in a league of their own. They belted out song after song and kept the dance floor packed the entire night. We've never had the dance floor as packed as it was in the 19 conferences I've planned so kudos to the entire "SI" band for a job well done! You made us shine among our sls reps and we owe it all to you & Sonny for organizing things w/the band!
We've already had a # of reps asking that we bring the band back for next year's conference so I'm sure we'll be in touch once we begin planning for next year's conference. Take care and enjoy the rest of your Summer! Best,

The Simply Irresistible Band lives up to their name and then some - they are absolutely phenomenal. At a recent wedding, they had literally every single guest on the dance floor from the first song until the last, and had the guests chanting for more at the end (to which they graciously obliged). The band's energy is contagious and engaging, and every person in the building from guests to catering staff felt as though they were at a private concert; a far more special experience than a typical wedding reception. I will continue to highly recommend Simply Irresistible to both my clients and my friends.
I wanted to send you a small note just to tell you how absolutely AMAZING you all were and that people are STILL talking about the wonderful band that played at our wedding! The music selection was phenomenal (Andy's FAVORITE was the Bobby Brown song!!!) and yall knew exactly how to read the crowd and entertain everyone way beyond what we ever expected! The "Thriller" Routine was incredible! Yall took our wedding reception to the next level with your over-the-top music and performance! In fact, some of my friends told me that they felt like "groupies" because they were just standing at the end of the stage watching yall! Yall were an absolute delight to work with, and you made my dad's night by playing "Dancin' on the Ceiling!" J Thank you so much for everything, and for truly making it THE MOST FUN NIGHT of Andy's and my life! We really appreciate everything that yall did, and we are spreading the word about Simply Irresistible! Although, I think the "word-of-mouth" communication lines in Greenville already has y'all at the top of everyone's list! J Take care, and again, thank you for everything!

The wedding was AWESOME!! All was as smooth as glass. Linda and the gals in the band were great to work with. The manager and guys were great as well. They did all they were asked to do and were very professional. They made the quick changes that were asked of me in the evening without one complaint. The really play all over the board, right? First time that I have EVER asked for a soft set and really got one.

Hi Kris - Having an out of town wedding, traveling to return home, and getting ready to go out the door again...you emailed me before I had a chance to email and say how much we all enjoyed "Simply Irresistible." In answer to all your questions, "Yes!" They were great to work with and I did meet and talk to Mr. Garrett who could not have been nicer and more engaged in our evening. I hope everything for the group was to their satisfaction.
They had not been to Linville before and I think they found the setting in the Blue Ridge Mountains as beautiful as we do. They played the soft music during dinner and then as everyone was finishing and having dessert, the dancing began and did not stop until 10:30. All our guests enjoyed the music...wanted to know who they were, where were they from, wanted to have them at their wedding or function, etc.
I liked all the music they played and I think Katherine and John's attention to the playlist helped them play the songs that our group liked the best. "Last Dance" at the end of the evening was perfect! It was a wonderful evening and "Simply Irresistible" helped make all of Katherine and John's dreams come true! Thank you for being in touch.
We were very pleased with the music.

The band knocked my socks off! I cannot believe how they MADE the party. Having seen a lot of wedding bands in my business, you really see quite the variety and I'd have to put them at #1 if I was asked to rank them. The guests partied the entire time and I rarely saw anyone sitting down. Looking forwarding to working with you in the future.
Jaimie C. (June 2nd, 2012)
Simply Incredible as well. Thanks for all of your help throughout the process....you were kind, understanding and professional all at the same time and we will always have fond memories of you and the band as reflect over the years on this wonderful Wedding Celebration!

Steve, We loved Simply Irresistible. They were great and they definitely kept the party going. They were very entertaining and everyone loved them. Thank you so much. They made the party and I would recommend them to anyone who would like to have a really great event. Again, thank you. It was a wonderful experience, and I will definitely keep you in mind, and keep your number.

Mr. Farber - The band was amazing at Elizabeth's and my wedding on Saturday, April 14th. One of the best entertainment performances I have seen at any social gathering! Thanks so much for your amazing recommendation! Dallas people who attended are still talking about how amazing and fun they were. We all truly enjoyed ourselves and the band truly made it the best night of Elizabeth's and my lives (they even allowed Elizabeth to spend most of the night on stage with them!).
Thanks again for helping us get the best of the best for our big day! You and EastCoast Entertainment are the best! We missed celebrating with you but cannot wait to share in Adam and Sara's wedding activities with you in a few months!
Talk to you soon!

Simply Irresistible was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! By far the best band I have ever heard. All of the musicians were unbelievable and such a pleasure to have around. I was absolutely blown away and didn't want the party to end. All of our guests felt the same way.
Thank you so much for all of your assistance. I will definitely recommend to anyone looking for the BEST band ever!!! What an amazing night.
Dara R. (October 27th, 2012)
They were so incredible. I seriously could not imagine a better band. The band was very friendly and we could tell that they really love to entertain. They played to the crowd and definitely got everyone up and moving. We've been to 2 weddings since ours. One was a very fancy Manhattan wedding and several people came up to us and said they liked our band more. In fact, the night of the wedding, we were at the after after party with 20 people or so and someone said out loud to the group that this was the best band they've ever seen. It's a huge compliment considering the person saying this had been to everyone else's wedding in the room. Thank you so much for helping Greg and I have the best night of our lives!
Jennifer S. (Sept 2nd, 2012)
Well, the band was over the top!. Everyone is talking about how fabulous they were.
Even the Argyle said they were the most professional and best band they have ever had in 20 years.
Plese pass this along to all of them.
I can't wait to use them again.
Thank you for everything.

Hi Larry and Miranda,
I hope that you both are doing well! I just wanted to send an e-mail to inform you both of the AMAZING experience that it was to work with the Simply Irresistible band on the Dulaney-Escobedo Wedding on April 13, 2013. Not only was the band absolutely wonderful in their sound and upbeat performance that kept the guests on the dance floor the entire evening, but they were also one of the most pleasant bands that I have worked with in my entire time with Sea Island. Herman was extremely professional and poised, and I would be thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them again.
I wanted to be certain that your company and team is aware of the true gem that you have with this band. Please continue to recommend them to our brides and we look forward working with them again in the future.

Simply Irresistible were FANTASTIC, FUN, SENSATIONAL, TERRIFIC ... I could go on and on about how everyone at the wedding loved them ..no one sat down ...I mean how could you with music like that .... Thank Ed for your guidance , I really appreciated it ...

Lisa S. (May 11th, 2013)
This is Camille. Simply Irresistible played at our wedding this past October in Nashville , and I am writing to tell you how much we absolutely LOVED them!! I also want to thank you and the band for working with me in the months leading up to the wedding and being so helpful. Thank you so much for everything you and the band did to make our wedding absolutely unforgettable! The band did a fantastic job, and I can't tell you how many comments I got the night of the wedding and on several other occasions since then from people saying how much they loved the band. They were SO energetic, SO fun, and they did a fabulous job of keeping the party going and getting everyone dancing and having a really fun time!
We loved all of the songs they played, and they did an excellent job on the first dance/father daughter/mother son songs. It was really like being at a concert! All of the dancing was clean, together, and fresh, the girls dresses were perfect, everyones' voices sounded beautiful, the energy was through the roof...the list goes on!
I hope that you are doing wonderful, and again thank you so very much.
