A long history of being among the Best Live Bands in America
Recognized as one of the best live bands for special events, parties and weddings, Emerald City burst onto the Dallas music scene in 1983 and never looked back. Motion, Movement, and Energy are three words that best describe this 13 piece, 3 horn section super group that electrifies every audience with a combination of high energy dance songs from the past with the hits of today.
Words cannot express how amazing this band is! They made my wedding a great success and are worth every penny. Absolutely phenomenal singers and playing… and the know how to keep everyone dancing! They can play anything and make it sound better than the recording artist. Perfect band for my wedding!
