Summer 2017/ What a blast!

It’s been an incredible summer and moving into the fall we are still in the heart of party season in Colorado.  Something interesting happened this summer.  A lot of people hired our big eight piece band and people have been going nuts at the weddings and parties we played.  The sound with our female and male vocalists along with the keyboards, guitar, a strong rhythm section and this powerful horn section to back it all up, is huge!  And people are loving it.  We have great options with our four, five and six piece band but this eight piece combo is in rare form and it seems many people are on to it and want more of it.  We have also finished 8 new songs on our original recording and are ready for release soon.  This will be a new high for the Jonny Mogambo band as it will garner national recognition and of course more demand all around.  We have received some incredibly nice reviews from people and it is apparent that everyone is digging the sound of this band.  Hope to dig it with you soon!  Jonny 9/12 17

Fun times in Spring 2017

As April rolls on we have some fun parties booked nationwide, all over Colorado and we are bringing new music to our great lineup this summer!  All Occasions Music is booking up solid for Summer and Fall dates for weddings and private parties.  I have just finished a great ski season  playing five days a week for apres ski shows slopeside here in Vail Colorado and am looking forward to some great weddings and parties we have booked this spring, summer and fall.  If you are truly looking for a great band for your celebration, please call us.  We recently worked with some new marketing people and they suggested that we emphasize that we are essentially a music lovers type of band.  If you enjoy high quality players who can solo circles around the best, a band that puts on a great show and has high energy, a band that knows it’s music and plays it with passion (we don’t use Ipads!), and a band that’s going to deliver each song in a way you love, then this is your band for your celebration.  I’ve seen so many wedding and party bands and the trend these days is heavy on the synthesizer with a lot of the same heavy electronic sounding drum beats and singers all doing the same thing everyone else is doing.  We are truly and more original band that brings the sound of incredible guitar playing and singing, great saxophone and horns along with our keyboard player with a tight rhythm section that shines with amazing bass playing and drumming.  There is a reason some of our band members have played at Red Rocks with side projects, they are amazing players!  This all translates into getting you an amazing band for your celebration, not some cheesy run of the mill same old band that is doing all the same old tunes as all these canned “entertainment agency” bands that you see.  I hope you all hear and see the difference.  It would be an honor to work with and help you realize your musical dreams for your celebration.  We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Sincerely, – Jonny Mogambo April 12th, 2017.

February 2017 Ski Season

Hey future party goers!  It’s been a great ski season so far here in Vail Colorado and with my band the Jonny Mogambo Band, we have played some awesome parties all over Colorado. You can catch the music on the apres ski scene here in Vail every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at the Chop House in Lionshead next to the gondola.  If you like to party, dance and sing along to some fun music then this is your place!  It used to be that you could catch live music at many venues for the apres ski scene in Vail but with Vail going through some growing pains we have seen fewer and fewer venues doing live music.  Do not panic!  We are still kicking it seven days a week at the Chop House with live music and good times.  Make this an apres ski destination if you are skiing in Vail.  On another note, JMB has some great parties lined up in Beaver Creek, Telluride, Aspen and all over Colorado this winter.  We are also booking up for many weddings and private parties this spring summer and fall with parties booked in Florida, Michigan and all over Colorado.  We have some new video and great recordings coming out soon.  Stay tuned for all good times Jonny Mogambo style!

Fall wedding season 2016

Fall is an excellent time to get married in Colorado.  You can generally find better pricing on venue rentals and sometimes you have that feeling that you just have the whole place to yourself and your guests.  As the leaves change you get beautiful blue sky days with golden, orange and yellow colors as your backdrop for an amazing celebration.  We have played some incredible parties this fall from Telluride, Aspen, Steamboat, Breckenridge, Vail and The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park to Chicago, Northern Michigan , Denver and all over Colorado.  We just recently had our big eight piece band with our full horn section in the concert hall at The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park.  It was an amazing scene and the whole atmosphere was elevated to a most excellent vibe as we brought down the house with our powerful funky rock n roll sound.  We have a cool new video on the front home page from the Stanley hotel.  Hope to see you all in Colorado soon!

Summer 2016 – Wow!

We have had an amazing summer so far and we still have a week left until it is officially over.  This weekend alone we have parties in Vail on the mountain, Cordillera and in Denver.  Colorado is still in full celebration mode for weddings and private parties.  We started the summer in May and played parties all over Colorado including Denver, A-Basin, Telluride, Vail, Breckenridge, Steamboat and Aspen to name a few.  We also had some great private parties in Nebraska, Lawrence KS, Savannah GA, Chicago Il, Greensboro NC, Cocoa Beach Florida and Northern Michigan to name a few.  We have added some new Prince and David Bowie songs to our song list honoring some of those who have passed and are playing some highly requested tunes by Bruno Mars (Uptown Funk), Pitbull (Fireball) and Nathaniel Ratlief (S.O.B).

We have truly played some amazing parties this summer and here are a few comments via email that we recieved:

“You killed it at our wedding! Everyone was like holy s**t I’ve never seen the entire place get up and start dancing right when you started! Thanks for making our wedding an awesome show we’ll never forget. Definitely can’t wait to recommend you to anyone and everyone I know getting married in Colorado. Can’t wait to get out for some skiing this year as well. Hope to see you at apres as well.”

Cheers, Jake (Jacob Heninger D.O.Anesthesiology Resident, CA2University of Illinois at Chicago)

Jonny:

“Wow!  I am glad that we paid you money for your services but your music was worth so much more than we could ever possibly pay you.  Nothing is more important to the success of a wedding, from the ceremony through the reception, than the energy and emotion provided by the musicians. You are indeed on top of the mountain in delivering a fun and energetic event.

Your music created a lasting impression on our guests and family. Thanks for putting up with high school teacher approach to organization and my son’s last minute changes to the dances.  Please pass on our comments to your band members. 

If you ever need a reference or wish to use our words in your promotional materials, do not hesitate. “

Thank you, thank you! – Gail- Four Eagle Ranch wedding

I hope everyone has enjoyed this wonderful time of year in Colorado as we have.  If you or anyone you know needs entertainment services for any occasion, anywhere, anytime, please call me, Jon Lindner at 970 -331-6111

February-Best Wedding Band in Colorado

The winter season has been great and we were recently voted Best Wedding Band in Colorado.  All wedding professionals and brides and grooms recommend this band, they simply say they have not seen a band that entertains better or has more fun with everyone than the Jonny Mogambo Band.   With parties at the Stanley Hotel, The Sonnenalp in Vail and Devil’s Thumb Ranch outside of Winter Park, along with weekly shows in Vail,Colorado,  we have kept very busy.  We have added some great new music to our repetoire.  With the passing of Don Henley and David Bowie, we thought it would be nice to pay tribute and have added a few new tunes by these artists. We are working on some new video for the band and have some other new video to share and can do so via dropbox with all interested.  You can also go to this link on Youtube to check out some new video we have done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvMIhgc7Mhgl.  We are busy booking up for the spring, summer and fall season with weddings and private parties already in Aspen, Telluride, Vail, Boulder, Denver, Breckenridge, Steamboat and other parties nationwide from Toronto Canada, Chicago Illinois and Atlanta Georgia to Memphis TN and Northern Michigan.  Anyone interested in booking the band, please call Jon at 970-331-6111.
