It's not just about music - it's about the right music

 

Mama's Stew Band Picture2014 is another busy year.  Mama's Stew has been hard at work since 2008 becoming one of New Jerseys premier cover bands.   Formed by  experienced musicians from three existing popular bands, Mama's Stew immediately began playing numerous shows in the NY - NJ Metro  area, bringing all their old fans - and rapidly picking up new fans - everywhere we went.

We play a variety of classic party rock, R&B, Motown and even some country favorites from the 50's through the 80's. We combine excellent musicianship, strong vocals and a varied song list with showmanship. We entertain and keep a crowd energized.  We are ideally suited for a wide variety of venues and have the repertoire, capability and equipment to stage a complete show from the most intimate indoor setting to outdoor concerts.

We consistently play 60 plus shows a year with many return engagements.  Mama's Stew attributes much of its success and popularity to a number of factors; most notably its diversity of popular material.  This allows the band to instantly adapt to the mood and desires of the crowd. Mama's Stew is a band that will get everyone energized and dancing from the very first set!  In addition to the long list of classic favorites, the band is constantly updating and evolving their show.  Fans are guaranteed to always hear new material at every show they play.

Beyond the impressive showmanship and material, the members of Mama's Stew are consummate professionals.  The band always arrives early, brings and setups up their own PA and instruments, and rapidly break down quickly and efficiently when the night's work is done.  Mama's Stew works with all of our clients to make it an enjoyable experience.  We measure our success by the success of our clients.

So whether itís for entertainment for your club, bar, house, backyard, park, street fair, wedding, divorce, birthday, reunion, corporate event or just ready for a party, Mama's Stew is the party band of choice.  Their high energy, exciting show is a must see for all, and will leave you always wanting them back - time and time again!
