We want to keep playing to the West!"

After many requests from brides, some of the Music Garden Corporate and wedding bands have elected to add an upgrade option to play straight through without break for 3 and ½ hours. In order to accomplish this, they add two to three members so that they can keep the energy up the entire night while performing not only the early jazz and cocktail standards but all dance songs from Motown music to the high energy Hip Hop and Top 40 songs. Party bands that are offering this option include Georgia R&B and Top 40 sensation, Az Izz, Mobile, Alabama party and dance bands Musical Fantasy, 4 Barrel Funk, and Powerhouse, Alabama dance and show band 2nd Coming, Florida variety band, Black Jacket, Mississippi Motown and Soul band, Compozitionz, and Georgia party bands, City Heat and Executive Soul. More of the bands are working on this option as well.

Huntington College in Montgomery will have Grace Potter perform for CloverJam. The concert booked by Music Garden starts at 8 p.m. in Roland Arena on the historic campus of Huntington College. Grace Potter with her band, Nocturnals, has recently been on tour in Europe with The Avett Brothers. She is excited to be coming back to the U.S. and is looking forward to performing for college students on the campus of Huntington. As well as being a multi-instrumentalist Grace Potter is known for her vocal qualities (sometimes compared to rock and blues cult singers like Janis Joplin or Koko Taylor) as well as for her vibrant energy on stage. Besides playing in the Nocturnals (of which she was a founder, along with drummer Matt Burr and guitarist Scott Tournet), she has released solo material and collaborated with other artists.
