The Rapt Presence Holiday Band consists of some of the best musicians in San Diego and performes all over Southern California for weddings, parties, receptions, coventions, concerts, corporate events, company parties, and of course, Christmas.
Rapt Presence offers to you our cheery traditional carols and popular songs, as well as some beautiful yet lesser known carols from Europe and around the world. In keeping with the seasonal theme of good cheer and brotherly love, and our appreciation of ethnic and artistic diversity, we include music from sunnier climes. We've spiced up our musical melting pot with some tropical songs and grooves. By adding Caribbean reggae, calypso & soca, latin styles, jazz, gospel, surf and country for extra flavor, we've created a California recipe all our own. We think you'll find it very tasteful!
We are dressed as "Island Elves", Santa's helpers with sunny smiles blending seasonal themes with vivid tropical fashions. We can wear aloha shirts & tropical dresses with matching Santa hats, or warm red vests with artistic African animal themes.
We can perform as instrumentalists or accompany our voices with the instruments listed below. We also have formal wear and other costumes and accessories available to suit the theme of your event.
Steel Drums, Vocals, Keyboards &/or Accordion, Guitars, Bass, Mandolin, Banjo, Dulcimer, Sax & Flute, Congas, Bongos, other Percussion (Tambourine, Bells, etc.), & Drums.
Our holiday musical entertainment creates a festive and jolly atmosphere. We are available as strolling or stationary acoustic musicians, with or without small portable battery powered sound-systems. We can also provide our P.A. system for stage performances.
