Emerald City Band

A one-of-kind party band, Emerald City Band averages more than 300 performances a year. The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, Knot Magazine and AACWP voted Emerald City as “Entertainers of the Year.”

Emerald City’s ability to entertain is only rivaled by their ability to get the audience up on the dance floor. This super group has taken their energy all over the world, from Dallas to Houston, New York, Europe and South America. Living up to its reputation of being one of the best live bands, Emerald City Band takes the audience to a higher level at every performance.
