Why 1st Generation Band?

Well, we are the WINNERS of Gig-MASTERS’S GOLDEN BEST BAND AWARD and The RISING FIVE STAR AWARD for being the TOP Booked Motown Band. WOW!!! What an accomplishment !!!

Our clients always tell us that we really know how to keep them and their guests on the dance floor all night long!! They call us “Da ROCK-IT-SHIP” because the dance floor ALWAYS stay packed. The dance floor feels like it is moving around like an earhtquake. All of this motion puts you in a HAPPY TRANS. REALLY… it does!!! Hahaha… You know, we found out that the source of all of this motion is actually coming from all of  the dancers being in SYNC causing the  floor to vibrate. Truly. it gives you the elusion of the dance floor is about to BLAST off (10..9…8…7…6…5…4…3…2…1) !!!

We LOVE to provide our clients with a wide variety of musical entertainment. Our diverse repertoire is a mixture of 60′s, 70′s, 80′s, 90′s, and ‘TODAY’s TOP 40 HITS’. One of the most exciting thing about us is, you will experience all of this entertainment within the same night… which gives you a breath of fresh air. See, we don’t put limits on what we can do.

Our band includes the awesome electrifying strong FEMALE vocalist Brenna Johnson AKA Brenna J. She has a diverse vocal style is in the likes of Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin. Oh boy..Oh boy, we also have the awesome MALE vocalist Dennis L. Taylor, the Nephew of the “Legendary Blues Singer Johnnie Taylor”. His style is like Lionel Richie of The Commodores and Marvin Gaye. I tell you they are an awesome DUO.
