Tropical Avenue, full of style and island vibes, is a five-piece wedding band based in Sarasota, FL. Tropical Avenue is a high-energy dance band playing a variety of Top 40 dance music, Latin Pop, Caribbean, Motown, Top 40 Rock & Country, and Iconic R&B / Classic Rock hits. The band was founded in 2007 by lifelong musician Jeff Hughes. Jeff had played in the Miami area and when he returned to Florida he wanted to start a band that had “South Beach” flair, but would be located on the “Left Coast” of Florida! The band showcases 5 talented and enthusiastic multi-instrumentalists playing Guitars, Trumpet, Keyboards, Drums, Bass, Violins, Violas, and ukuleles as needed and 3 Lead Vocalists, (2 Female and 1 Male). When appropriate with the couple’s blessing, the band invites guests up on select songs to play percussion instruments with the band! Bongos, tambourines, and maracas make your guests get involved in your celebration! The band has several sound systems covering 50 guests, up to 1000 outdoors, and approximately 2000 guests indoors. Full lighting and special effects lighting available and make for an animated dance floor! Tropical Avenue is based in the Sarasota Florida area and can travel throughout most of the State. Our primary area is Tampa Bay down to Naples. Our local area runs from Ft Myers up to Bradenton, FL. Other packages can include music for the ceremony, cocktail hour, a DJ on our breaks, an additional sound system for the ceremony, a full-sized sound system for up to 2000 guests, and wireless mics for the officiant and for toasts. We look forward to working with you in creating your "one-of-a-kind" Wedding!
