Tad Dancin'

Tad Dancin'


Funky as a gym sock, fresh as a new gym sock, Tad Dancin’ brings the energy and groove that makes dancin' happen. Funk. Soul. Rock. Jazz. Blues. We play it all. Tad Dancin' - More Bounce Per Ounce!


Familiar with a fresh twist - Tad Dancin' is the best of both worlds.

Everyone knows Bobby Hebb's 'Sunny' and Three Dog Night's 'I Just Want to Celebrate', but they haven't heard them the way Tad Dancin' performs them.

We perform eclectic covers and/or fresh arrangements of familiar songs. Check out our set list tab for a partial list of songs that aren't the standard fare, but are guaranteed to get the crowd moving.

Some may dismiss this 24-armed monster of funk, soul, and R&B as just another cover band--they're wrong! The instrumentation and shear size of Tad Dancin' lets us put on an electrifying performance and allows us to cover a much wider range of styles and genres to keep the crowd engaged and dancin'.

Tad Dancin' is made up of 3 vocalists, 4 rhythm, and 5 horns (2 trumpets, 2 saxes, trombone).

Is it worth having such a large group perform at your event/venue?


Just ask Goose Island Wrigleyville, Mahoney's Pub & Grille, Reggie's Music Joint, Wild Goose, and the countless number of patrons that have flooded the already packed rooms when Tad Dancin' unleashes its brand of danceable energy on the crowd.

Funk. Soul. Rock. Jazz. Blues. We play it all. Tad Dancin' - More Bounce Per Ounce!
