    Some of the band’s Influences…
    Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Bonnie Raitt, Keith Urban, Joan Jett, Pat Benetar, Bob Seger, Lady Gaga, Miranda Lambert and Shania Twain.

The Ruby Red’s Dixieland Band was formed in 1966. The original members migrated to Atlanta from New Orleans, New York and San Francisco where they had already gained expertise in a new fad that was sweeping the country… banjo sing-a-long parlors. Folks would gather in a converted warehouse with pitchers of draft beer and roasted peanuts (throwing the shells on the floor) and play loud and rowdy music on banjos, trombones, tubas and washboards. The place in Atlanta was an old warehouse on Ellis Street.

Ruby Red’s Warehouse had a successful 4-year run on Ellis Street and then relocated as the first club to open in the original Underground Atlanta where they packed ’em in nightly for another 6 years. After MARTA construction ended Underground the band began playing all over the Southeast… backyard BBQs, pool parties, weddings, divorces, wake-up breakfasts, all-night street dances, store openings, store closings, road races, parades, house parties… even Jazz Funerals. They’ve played for every major corporation in the South and nearly every political candidate in the state. They played for the FIRST opening day of the Atlanta Braves in 1966 and have been a regular feature at Braves games over the years.
For close to 50 years the Ruby Reds Band has been playing New Orleans Jazz and Blues and lending their unique style and instrumentation to every imaginable musical genre for folks all over the South… and they’d like to play for you, too!

Sure, it’s a novelty, an attraction but my what an ice breaker and a conversation piece at just about any special event.  An Elvis impersonator, when done right is hard to beat.  I have always loved Elvis and I love representing this professional who, if Elvis himself saw him, would be pleased.

Blue Sky Atlanta Music & Entertainment has long admired this fellow’s skills and he is accepting dates solo or he can show up with his whole outstanding 5 piece band!  Travel is not a problem.  So get your favorite list of Elvis tunes out – he knows just about all of them: C.C. Rider, Loving You, I Want you, I Need You, I Love You, Love Me Tender, Jailhouse Rock – you cannot stump him!

You can give him scarves to hand out with your logo or company name, we can even modify lyrics to an Elvis song to roast your retiring business associate. All done with a lot of class!  Some themes to think about that Elvis might be a great idea for would be: a birthday party, an anniversary party, a rehearsal dinner and retirement dinners.

Atlanta German Wedding Band

Laurence “Laurentz” celebrates his German heritage (Fischer) and has fun doing so with “The Atlanta German Band“. Laurentz and his tuba have made numerous trips bringing American Jazz around the world (yes, including Germany) and he now presents exuberant German sounds in the southeast. The band performs traditional German Oktoberfest music as well as popular American-style Oom-pah music. Laurentz gets his love of the music from his “Pennsylvania Dutch” lineage and wants to promote this genre of music wherever he and his great band go throughout the world.

The “boys in the band” also feel that the inclusion of some great beer and high cholesteral foods is vitally important to the American diet (at least in October!) The instrumentation and style of the band is in the German-American. The front line is Trumpet, Clarinet and Tenor Sax with Tuba, Accordion and drums rounding out the rhythm section. “Whoopie John” Wilfahrt made big impressions on Laurentz as a boy and the “Six Fat Dutchmen’s” tunes could be heard in his home while growing up. They have always loved Frankie Yankovic and his hits dot their repertoire that also includes Slovenian and Polish selections. The Katzen perform in various configurations from a trio (trumpet, accordion and tuba) up to the full six-piece band with trombine drums and clarinet are added, From listening to favorite waltzes, Schottisches, Polkas and there’s tons and fun and excitement for all! Yah!
