Band Song List

Steve Ezzo & The Monterey Bay All-Stars SONG LIST:

Note:  Our musicians are extremely versatile and capable of performing music from all musical eras (1940s up to the latest contemporary hits) and we have included samples of songs from all eras.  We are a variety band that can do just about anything except country and will discuss your preferences prior to the event.  Do not be concerned if you see music on the list that you don’t like—we won’t play it!  The list contains both dinner and dance music so if you have only hired the band for dancing, we will not be doing the mellow dinner-type songs on this list.
