With ample notice, Fresh Air will even learn a request for a special “spotlight” moment, or to match perfectly with your party’s theme.

A Great Band Makes A Great Party!

Fresh Air is widely considered the very BEST live musical entertainment available in the Washington, DC and Baltimore region. The group is often referred to as a “musicians band,” due to the quality of talent on stage.

Bandleader Jim Templin carefully plans each event’s playlist in advance. His song choices are based on conversations and interviews pertaining to your event, your vision, and your own taste in music. He also coordinates with your other event vendors to assure that all “team members” are working from the same game plan. Nothing is left to chance. Fresh Air arrives well-informed and well-prepared!

Please take a few minutes to enjoy our band video, and check out our song list. Then contact us to book your event today! We look forward to helping YOU create great memories!
