collageMORE ROCK, LESS SHLOCK! You and your guests will be entertained by a high energy, genuine rock band that takes you on a fun-filled musical journey through the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s … as well as today’s Top 40 and rock hits. We’re one of the most popular booked bands in California and on Gigmasters, have won multiple “Top Rock Cover Band” awards, and were voted best cover band by CBS.

But enough of that—we’ll let our clients do the talking for us. Please read the 100+ unedited testimonials to see rave reviews from so many happy brides, grooms, event planners, and party goers. Here are a few highlights:

“Our experience with The Trip was terrific. Along with being a very talented group of performers, they were completely professional. They knew how to read the crowd and knew what songs would resonate with our crowd of professionals. We would whole heartedly book The Trip again, and recommend them to any other association or group looking for a band to play at their next conference or meeting.” – Khoa L

“I’ve planned corporate parties for the past 13 years and this band was as top notch as they come. The Trip literally tore up my shoes and they ended up in the trash before leaving the resort!! They played a great diverse mix of current & classic rock music… but when they played Led Zeppelin’s Rock and Roll I was a goner (in a good way). It was like I was at a concert. The dance floor was packed all evening. Everyone commented to me during and after the party on how great the band was. I’d book them again in a heartbeat (and I probably will). Great job guys!! “– Lorie M

“We hired The Trip for our wedding and it was by far the best decision we could have possibly made. From Erik’s ceremony guitar music to the last note of the evening, they were incredible!! Our guests had so much fun, and could not stop telling us how amazing they sounded! They had such a variety to play to all age groups. The dance floor was packed all night. Also, they were extremely professional, and accomodating to our requests and timeline. We ran a bit late and they simply played straight through without a break! I can’t rave enough about this band! We didn’t want a typical, everyday wedding band so instead we got an incredible party band for our special day!!!” -Jenny C, La Jolla, CA

We have performed for some other pretty famous clients. At his daughter’s wedding, we were joined onstage by no other than rock legend Michael Anthony from Van Halen and Chickenfoot. We’ve also had the honor of being joined by country superstar Toby Keith at his “OK Kids Korral” benefit concert, and Stephen Stills from Crosby, Stills, Nash andYoung sat in with us at his Bel Air event.
