The band

Notorious is packed with glamour, sophistication, style, and fun.

Notorious always brings their A-game high energy show to any event (and their many rave reviews on Yelp prove this) and have done so for hundreds of thrilled clients for over 10 years.Notorious’ demand for high end social events has led to them performing as the headline entertainment for the Opening Night Galas for the SymphonyBallet and Opera as well as The San Francisco Giants World Series Party.

awardsNotorious is truly customizable to the events needs, whether its a preferred genre of music, customizable set of musicians or aesthetic / visual presentation.

Notorious excels at performing current hits, along with 70s, 80s and 90s classics and Motown, disco, R&B, soul and classic rock. Let’s discuss curating the perfect set of songs for your event!

Notorious is available to travel internationally, and has done so for clients world-wide to a great deal of success for companies and private clients alike.

Classical / flamenco guitar

Eli Nelson is a member of Notorious who also happens to be a wonderful multi-instrumentalist, with the ability to perform classical or flamenco guitar, violin, keyboards and more, with customized material for your event. This is a wonderful additional for cocktail hours and other portions of events that require something smaller and different than the full dance band. Watch Eli’s video below.

Top Reasons to Hire Notorious

Notorious - Black

1. Quality / Reputation: This is the very same band that Apple, Genetech, Cisco, Toyota Yahoo, Google and countless other Fortune 500 companies and other discerning clients have used for their special events.

2. Elegance & style: Notorious has been a go-to band for high end galas for the San Francisco Opera, Symphony, Ballet and other social events on many occasions. Their sophisticated musical aesthetic is matched by their stylish visual presentation, with the men in fine suits and the gals in beautiful gowns and dresses.

3. Not hired guns, but a real band: Notorious got their start in San Francisco nightclubs, and have grown to be a go-to band for all kinds of events based on the authenticity of the band. These are not ‘hired gun’ musicians but a group of friends who have played together for many years. You know you will be getting when you hire Notorious (look at the photo above!)

4. The band is good Luck: The San Francisco Giants hired us and they won the World Series. Who doesn’t want to win the World Series?

5. Scalability / diversity: Notorious has both male and female lead vocalists, and a full band of top musicians. The band can also be augmented with a horn section to be a larger 9 piece band.

6. Cocktail hour / solo + duo musicians:  Notorious band members can perform customized music for ceremony and cocktail hours prior to the band, led by the talented master musician Eli Nelson. See a video of Eli here.

7. No hidden costs: Notorious price is easy + clear when hiring a band, there are no hidden costs, taxes, fees, tips, travel. All inclusive and clear booking fee. No extra agencies, or ‘middle men’ involved.

“Encore!! Encore!! Was what the guests where yelling at the end of the night.Notorious Killed it!”  …Sharon Burns, Owner, Napa Valley Custom Events

Loved working with this band and their management team.  Notorious is awesome.  Our guests loved them and they really got the party rolling.  And all of the logistics leading up to the event also ran smooth as silk.  I’d hire them again in a minute.” … K.W., Bride

“Our party was a huge success, all in part to Notorious!I have never had so many great compliments from my guests about a vendor until the band played on. They were that good! Our party was supposed to be a one time gig, since we were celebrating a milestone. However, the band/party was such a hit, my boss is having me repeat it again next year.” Jennifer Childs, Integrated Archive Systems

2850-OperaGetty-151207“Notorious just absolutely killed it at our wedding this weekend and I couldn’t have hoped for anything better.  It was a real joy for me to see all my friends dancing and genuinely having a blast, and an even greater joy to see my parents, grandparents, and a whole span of generations cutting up a rug.  The band was professional, high energy, and fun.  The agents at Jay Siegan Presents organized the performance with the venue in a fluid and stress free way, leaving more time for me to do other wedding tasks.  Many people told us it was the best wedding they had been to and best live wedding band they had seen.  The set-list was hit after hit, energy and excitement through and through.  Having such a perfect experience on the most important night of your life… well words cannot describe.  Thank you … Artie K, Groom
