An event can include light dinner and cocktail jazz followed by more upbeat music for dancing. The Rob Bennion Band isn't afraid of getting down and funky if the event calls for it, of course always using taste and discretion to make sure that the music is appropriate for the setting and your desires. The appearance of the band is very important as well, the band can wear your specific colors, suits, or tuxedos; you decide how they will look at your event.
