This band can play anywhere from the most popular clubs on the circuit to wedding receptions the top society parties and corporate events everybody, everywhere, instantly relates to the music. “It’s always been natural for us to reach out and draw in the audience. We make the people feel they’re part of the performance because they are”, says Pride & Joy founder and bandleader Coleman Burke. “That’s what Pride & Joy has always been about – creating a great feeling in the room. That’s as important a part of our show as the work we put into our look, choreography and arrangements.” As evidence of Pride & Joy’s across-the-board staying power, the band regularly sells out full- weekend engagements at San Francisco’s premiere nightclub, the Great American Music Hall. In addition, they have played Reno, Lake Tahoe, Arizona, Southern California, Hawaii, Phoenix, Palm Springs, Los Angeles as well as other cities.
“The crowd was dancing themselves into a frenzy. This is a band dedicated to perpetuating vintage rhythm and blues. Pride & Joy plays the most partyin’ music ever recorded. The band is as likable to a living jukebox as you’ll ever come across. All the right buttons are pushed to assure a wild time on the dance floor. The band’s music is turning yet another generation into dancin’ fools.” – The San Francisco Chronicle
