Familiar Faces

A Motown, jazz band covering hits from the ’50s to the ’90s.

Artist Bio

“Familiar Faces is one of the hottest unsigned acts I’ve ever seen…” a remark recently overheard coming from Robert K. Oermann, The Tennessean music editor. To hear statements such as these is not uncommon at a Familiar Faces performance. To put it simply, this Nashville, TN-based show and dance band is smokin’!

So what you see is what you get. And what you get is eight very talented individuals, a kicking horn section, and a powerful rhythm section forming the basis for their sound. Three gifted lead vocalists, two male and one female, are each budding stars in their own right. Add intricate background vocals to music that is both potent and dynamic and you have a combination that’s definitely hard to beat!

“The Faces” songlist is comprised of only the biggest hits from the ’50s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. Couple that with today’s hottest Top 40 and you’ll find that you have one of the most demanding and versatile songlists used on any circuit today.
