We have fun, so you have fun
Necessary Diversion engages the audience by cranking out Top Rock hits from then and now. With six musicians strong in powerful vocals, serious rhythm section, sizzling guitar and keys, and our signature horn sound, we can handle all your music needs.
Seeing a need for a band to play the music that "everybody loves but nobody does," the members of Necessary Diversion formed in 2010. Diversions are necessary sometimes in one's daily life and they grew determined to bring the music that they love to as many people they could.
Hiring a live band is a special occasion and it needs to be tailored to YOU. Because all six members come from a love of the music of the 1970's, 80's, 90's, as well as the music of today, the result is that YOU get the focused event that matches your party.
Necessary Diversion provides a large sound but without the extra volume. Our extensive song list, energetic approach and professionalism sets us apart from other wedding/ party bands, and allows us to seamlessly move between a wide range of styles: Dance, R&B, Pop, 60's - 70's - 80's classic rock, soul, reggae, modern rock, country, etc.
Necessary Diversion will work to understand exactly what you what you want and make sure you and your guests have the time of your lives! Our ability to play from a low volume under dinner or a reception to full rock at the end of the night, makes us the perfect band for any event: from weddings and private parties, to clubs and restaurants.
