Bio

There really is nothing like watching a LIVE band perform! Live Wire knows that and believes audiences deserve to hear music the way it was always meant to be heard - LIVE.

At the very core of our band is a deep passion and love of music. And it isn't specific to one time or era. That's the beauty of what we play - we pull from all styles of music and eras. Assorted tunes from the 60s through today are brought to life! And when you think of versatility, there is NO band in South Florida quite like us!

We've developed a body of music that can fit any occasion or place - from the elegant Palm Beach affairs we've played at to the high-energy night club scenes. Live Wire gets crowds of 100 to 1000 moving to our renditions of songs from yesterday and today! We fill stages with lots of energy and excitement! We cover a broad range of styles from R&B, Motown, Classic Rock, Reggae, the Classic Standards, contemporary hits and more - highlighting mostly the popular Top 40 music of yesterday.
