Biography

Established in 1981, Westside Band has performed continuously for nearly 29 years. The sound and the show is big. The style is R&B Rock that gets U on your feet dancin' on the stage with the band or on the dance floor. Our sound is uniquely our own flavor on covers and our original material. We live for live performance. Studio musicianship bores us. We don't do DJ in our spare time. Influences--From--Santana, Earth Wind & Fire, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Rolling Stones, to the Red Hot Chili Peppers. There ain't NO party like the WESTSIDE party. And the Westside party DONT stop.
