The Tighten Ups

The Tighten Ups


The Tighten Ups deliver a full dance floor & funky arrangements of classic Soul, Blues, & Rock hits of the 50's, 60's, 70's! Based in San Diego, The Tighten Ups keep your party moving for up to 3 sets. Fronted by Laura Jane's voice, accented by horns, and built on a powerful rhythm section - tight!


We've been playing together since 2007, and have over 100 years of collective service to the many fans of our former projects. The Tighten Ups was created to pay tribute to the music that forged our earliest dance floor urges, and has compelled us to rock ever since! Our sets are high energy, time-tested Blues, Soul, Funk, and Rock & Roll super mega hits. Sure, we can twist reality to suit your needs, and throw in some ballads, or our originals, too.......we will work with your vision, you entertainment visionary, you.
