We Aerial View, based out of Charlotte, NC, has been playing its popular mix of "good time Rock, Rhythm and Blues" at clubs, outdoor festivals, corporate parties, country clubs, and private events across the Carolinas since 2004. We are a versatile, fun-loving Variety / Rock / RnB band that takes pride in our ability to play to the crowd, groove to the mood...
Our versatility stems from the diversified musical backgrounds and experience of its members, with collective performing experience totaling more than 50 years (shew, that's alot of gigs!). The 150+ song Aerial View playlist hits the spot with virtually all audiences, a performance typically featuring a handful of whatever is hot on the charts, as well as plenty of handpicked classics from the likes of Tom Petty and John Mellencamp to The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, to name but a few...
Of course, we also offer snappy versions of all your good time dance floor favorites -- from Brown Eyed Girl to Play That Funky Music to Blister In The Sun, we've got you covered with the kind of upbeat favorites that will keep the dance floor packed and the refreshments flowing!!! And, we'll work with you in advance to ensure we play just the right mix of tunes for your particular crowd! Our list of tunes is constantly changing, and therefore never "complete". Remember that there are songs on our list that will not be appropriate for one gig, yet perfect for another. The key point is there is lots of variety, good time rock and R-n-B from the 50's through today.
For private functions, we encourage you to work with us in advance to develop the best possible playlist for your event. This includes your overall preferred types of music, down to "mood changes" throughout the course of the event, for example an upbeat reception followed by mellower dinner music followed by dance floor favorites. Our goal each night is to play the perfect set for your function, to please you and your guests...Need us to emcee, provide recorded dance music at intermissions, learn special tunes? No problem, just ask...
