About The Band

Next Exit Band is an accomplished cover band playing dance and party rock favorites across Ohio and beyond (7 states so far). Voted by brides as one of the 3 top wedding bands in 2010 in Columbus, OH by "The Knot", they focus on weddings and private events. The group has the experience of over 500 performances under their belt and the good time they have on stage is contagious. Their motivation continues to be having fun playing music that excites people and gets them involved, be it dancing or joining the guys on stage for a cowbell solo!

They also believe you can't be a first rate band without first rate production. With top notch sound reinforcement and lighting, they can handle anything from a private party to a large outdoor festival or corporate event.

The Next Exit Band goes far beyond being just "the band". In addition to some great live music other services that can be provided include:

- All needed sound and lighting

- Master of Ceremonies services

- Sound reinforcement for ceremonies, presentations, etc at location other than where the band will play (can provide multiple sound systems)

- For weddings - pre-recorded music of your choice during cocktail hour, dinner, introductions, special dances

- "DJ'd" break music that keeps the party going

- Use of the sound system and wireless microphone for toasts, speeches, etc.

- Access to our large catalog of pre-recorded music for all your special dances and events during the reception. It's likely we have it which means you won't need to track it down.

- For weddings - A comprehensive guide to walk you through all aspects of the reception. This makes sure we exceed your expectations.
