"They can make an otherwise staid audience bop 'til they drop. This
is a band with fiery enthusiasm that had the crowd howling in ecstasy."
"Pride & Joy produces the best dance music around. What a joy to
dance to a pridefully... a pop-rock group to be savored. YEAH!"
Herb Caen, San Francisco
Pride & Joy is not just a fabulous
dance band, it's an unforgettable, get-up-and-boogie, high-octane
happening. This dynamic and exceptionally popular dance band takes
its name from Marvin Gaye's hit song and celebrates the excitement
of Motown bands that made such a huge musical mark in the '60s and
One of the most potent and polished acts in show business, Pride
& Joy recreates the ensemble sounds of the Motown era with all four
superb and spirited singers swapping vocal chores with equal passion
and electricity. The songs are mostly Motown instant classics like
"I Can't Get Next To You", "Shotgun", and "You Can't Hurry Love",
along with soul classics like "Respect", "Love Train" and "Take
Me To The River".
Pride & Joy plays everywhere, from the most popular clubs on the
circuit to wedding receptions to top society parties and corporate
events. Everybody, everywhere, instantly relates to the music.
During over two decades of phenomenal success, Pride & Joy has remained
one of the most popular bands on the San Francisco Bay Area music
scene. They have achieved this by presenting the most timeless pop/soul
music of our time in an electrifying high-style show that pulls
the audience directly into the heart of their performance.
"All of Pride & Joy's tunes were
re-created with equal passion and electricity in conjuring up audio
pictures of the 60's era."
