One Five Six Four Entertainment One Five Six Four Entertainment was founded in 2009 by husband and wife team, Jared and Ashley Thompson. Since then, flagship bands Midtown 10 (formerly IDT Band) and Empire 6 have performed for hundreds of weddings, corporate events, galas, and fundraisers. They are known among clients and event planners for attracting the industry’s most phenomenal vocalists, setting trends in creative and immersive production, and staying firmly committed to quality, relevance, and good taste. Midtown 10 (formerly IDT Band) Midtown 10 combines the raw energy of a live band with all the drops, builds, loops, and craziness of a DJ. Midtown 10 seamlessly weaves brass, with thumping bass and drums, killer vocals, and soaring guitar solos with styles such as EDM, hip-hop, electro-pop, and more. With over 14 years of experience performing nationally and internationally, Midtown 10 has shared its unique style with thousands of crowds, and has set a new bar for how much fun you can have with a party band. As Lizzie McGuire once said: This is what dreams are made of. Empire 6 The reigning queen of party bands! Modeled after its older brother, Midtown 10, Empire 6 has continued to refresh and redefine the party band experience with its style, charm, and eclectic song selection. Known for powerhouse vocals, total crowd engagement, and larger-than-life performance, Empire 6 brings the experience of a national touring act to the small stage and has been one of the most sought-after party bands in the Southwest since 2012. What’s The Difference? A very common question is “What is the difference between Midtown 10 and Empire 6” The short answer is “there isn’t one.” Midtown 10 is the original band that started it all in 2009. Thankfully, because of the success and demand for the band, we were able to duplicate the formula that was proven to work, and Empire 6 was created in 2012. While some entertainment companies produce several (or infinite) versions of the same band, we elected to give Empire 6 its own identity. They immediately matched pace with Midtown 10, and both bands have now performed hundreds of events followed by rave reviews. Both bands are produced and styled identically, sharing the same song list, choreography, mashups, and even the same amazing sound production and programmed lighting.
