About The Band

Al Paris, former lead singer of Kool & The Gang, is a performer of rare talent, whose charisma really shines on-stage in front of a live audience. After a decade touring globally as a former member of Kool & The Gang, best known for their hit "Celebration", Al’s “renaissance man” career has spanned acting, singing, songwriting, and producing from his home base in Memphis, TN.
Working with artists like Gladys Knight, Pink, and Joe Walsh exposed Al to a wide range of music and talented performers and studio musicians – many of which he has recruited into The Heartbreakers. Al Paris & The Heartbreakers formed in late 2013, and has quickly become one of the most in-demand show bands for wedding receptions, corporate events, festivals, fundraisers, and private events like milestone birthdays and anniversaries.
The core of the band includes Al Paris singing lead, his female lead singer, drums, keyboards, bass, and lead guitar – a troop of experienced musicians known for exceptional on-stage choreography with strong visual appeal and over-the-top performance of today’s hottest hits as well as a wide variety of all-time favorite songs customized to your event and audience; adding the optional horn section and back-up singers give the band an even greater depth of sight and sound that’ll make your event a truly lasting memory.

BONUS: The provides four hours of continuous music, with a Live DJ to provide music during band breaks, or during cocktail hour, free of charge. 


  • Option to include a Michael Jackson impersonator
  • Make your reception even more special with a custom written song by Al Paris all about you and your love story!
