About Pat Patrick Band:

The Pat Patrick Band, Pat Patrick Orchestra or Pat Patrick's Showband, no matter which band you get they all play fresh arrangements of favorites from the Big Band era, such as: The Mood, Satin Doll, Take the A Train, String of Pearls and many more performed by Nashville's top recording musicians and vocalists. As the evening progresses, the orchestra begins to rock with contemporary dance hits and classics from the 60's and 70's to now. Throughout the party the Big Band provides an ambience of elegance and pleasant nostalgia for any event.

Over the course of forty-five years and innumerable performances, the Pat Patrick Band evolved from a four-piece combo into today's Pat Patrick Band and Orchestra. With the diversity to perform as a 5-piece combo or a 23-piece orchestra, the Pat Patrick Band has developed a reputation as one of the most energetic party bands around. The party band is comprised of Nashville's top studio musicians and is led by the only band leader in the country who has earned more than 30 platinum records. Reminiscent of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and Francis Craig, Pat Patrick brings the Big Band and Swing era to life, while continuing to play a diverse repertoire of Rock 'N' Roll, Soul, Pop and R&B.
Pat Patrick Band and Orchestra will provide you with great live entertainment no matter what the occasion from wedding receptions, corporate parties, Bar Mitzvahs, and all other events, this band brings fun, quality and professionalism. Their main goal is to create live music and entertainment that you and your guests will definitely enjoy.

It may be hard to believe, but the origins of the Pat Patrick Band started in 1958, when band leader Pat Patrick picked up the guitar at age eleven. Four years later, Patrick formed his first band and named it the Saturns Combo. Comprised of guitar, bass, drums and sax, they used Patrick's bedroom for rehearsal space. This young band received its start performing for the Hillwood Country Club, Belle Meade Country Club, and various high school dances and fraternity parties all over Nashville.

A few short years later, while attending Vanderbilt University, the Saturns were signed to Polygram Records. This contract allowed the band to grow by one more horn player. Unknown to Patrick at the time, adding band members (and subsequently growing his repertoire) would be a distinguishing characteristic of the Pat Patrick Band. During their agreement with Polygram, the Saturns remade Marvin Gaye's hit "Stubborn Kind of Fellow" and recorded one of Patrick's originals, "You Can Destroy My Mind."

As the band progressed, so did their name. The Saturns turned into the Fabulous Beech Nut Show Band around 1968. This name did not last for long, transforming into the Kracker Jacks Show Band. Even though they were at a loss for a name, Patrick's band was in such great demand that he was able to add three more horn players and one more vocalist. The band continued playing new venues in and around Nashville and for sorority and fraternity parties all over the South.

Performances for friends in Nashville soon led to bookings in Louisville and Memphis, and before long Patrick found himself being asked to play for social events and weddings all over the country. During this time the band focused on playing rock hits of the 70's. Then in 1978, Patrick increased the size of his band yet again, adding four horns at the request of a client. The band was now able to play Big Band, Jazz and Swing in addition to Rock and Pop.

Over the course of forty-five years and innumerable performances, the band evolved from a four-piece combo into today's Pat Patrick Band and Orchestra. With the diversity to perform as a 5-piece combo or a 23-piece orchestra, the Pat Patrick Band has developed a reputation as one of the most energetic party bands around. The band is comprised of Nashville's top studio musicians and is led by the only band leader in the country who has earned more than 30 platinum records. Reminiscent of Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Benny Goodman and Francis Craig, Pat Patrick brings the Big Band and Swing era to life, while continuing to play a diverse repertoire of Rock 'N' Roll, Soul, Pop and R&B.

Dear Pat and Band,
WOW!!!!! I still don't have my voice back after our wedding on April 24th!!! You all ROCKED IT!!! I cannot tell you how many compliments we have received on how much FUN our reception was. Going into our wedding, we all knew that (truly) the music was the most important part. We listened to so many bands, but kept coming back to you all. You are just the best!! I know that we had a lot of requests and I so appreciate you all playing so many of our requested songs. I don't think the dance floor ever slowed down! I knew it wouldn't be hard to get our crowd moving, but I was a little worried that some might not be "in the mood" in all the rain. Ha!! Your spirit and energy kept the party going all night and it was the best night of my life. I can't thank you enough for making out dream wedding come true. Y'all are amazing!!!
With so many thanks,
Carey (Floyd) McDonald

Dear Pat Patrick Showband,

As another example of science in action, you were the auger so very effectively for the energy and fun of Kathryn and Jeff's wedding party. The photographer said the party would be over early because it was such a long day with an afternoon wedding. He didn't count on you being the carrier-infuser-fuel for our friends and family. You still had the dance floor full when you shut it down.

From the jazz duo during cocktails and dinner to the full on- arms above your head- rocking full band you had superb dance vibe and song choice. You were probably working out beats per minute to pace the party and I was just a shameless victim of your skill dancing my shoes off literally and loving it!.

Thank you for being there to carry us outside ourselves with energy and the fuel you were there for all of us to build a really carefree, fun memory. You rock.

Highest regards,

Carrie and Charlie Eckstein

"I wanted to email you and tell you what a joy it was to have you perform at our wedding. Christen and I had a wonderful time and only wish we could have stayed longer to dance more. I really appreciate your willingness to perform a few songs for us at our request. You did a wonderful job on all of the songs. Also, I want to thank you for staying late. Christen and I heard that you kept performing until around 1am. Thank you. I have had numerous people from in town and out of town mention what a wonderful job you did. Thanks again. Christen and I look forward to seeing you again soon at a few weddings...this time we are going to be the last on the dance floor."
