Biography

The best way to describe what The Populars specialize in is the populars! We play the most popular tunes from the '50s through today. Be it soul, jazz, pop, rock, or anything in-between, we've got it covered. We tailor our show specifically to your event. We can start playing jazz for your cocktail hour, then bring out the Motown hits to get the party started, and end the night with the chart toppers of today! We will even DJ in-between sets, so the music never stops.

Nate, Karel, and Paul started The Populars. They all spent time playing in the show and party bands on cruise ships and decided they wanted to put together their own, and most importantly, land based, entertainment group.

When you're planning the entertainment for your next event, think about what people want to hear: The Populars!
