“Not your average wedding and special events band, The Business is just the right mix of heart and soul with incredible musicianship. An all star collection of Asheville based players whose love of music and having fun is evident from the first note.”

 Peggy Ratuz, Asheville ’s finest blues Diva.


“Wow..what a great night of music and dancing. I cant wait to hear y'all again at The White Horse on New Years Eve. You can bet I'll be getting my tickets early for that one. Here are some photos I took at White Horse last night.”

"They were wonderful. They played a wonderful background set during the cocktail hour and dinner, and were so much fun after dinner! Everyone was up and dancing and having the best time! Most importantly was how pleasant they were to work with. They were so friendly and flexible, and they were really a breath of fresh air compared to a lot of bands I work with."

 Margaret Brewer, The Westin Charlotte

"The Business was AWESOME!!! Everyone was just blown away by how geat they were. Chris and I were impressed by how well they played (and learned) our first ance song - You and Me by Dave Matthews.  All of our guests left wanting to hear more because they were so good! Hiring The Business was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding.  We couldn't be happier!!!"

"The Business are true professionals who make a direct connection with the audience members from the moment they hit the stage. In the world of live music as in theatre, a proverbial "fourth wall" commonly separates the performers from their audience, but that wall is destroyed buy The Business who create an experience where the audience members are participants in the celebration as opposed to being mere consumers. I've been privileged to watch The Business perform on numerous occasions. Their shows are characterized by diversity of material, superior musicianship, and danceable rhythms.  The blend of familiar songs from the sixties through the eighties never fails to produce smiles, celebratory shouts and dance floors filled with satisfied celebrants.  Audience members always feel like they've gotten more than their monies worth and leave feeling like they've participated in a celebratory experience as opposed to just attending a concert.  in any field of endeavor, excellence and professionalism lead to success. The Business have demonstrated that they know how to please an audience anf have developed a loyal fanbase who follow them from venue to venue to experience good times and good vibrations.  I recommend them highly"
