America’s Premier Live Party Band
“From the first song, Party Crashers packed the dance floor. All of our guests were raving about the band. This band was everything we had hoped for and more!“
– Kristen Partee, Ritz Carlton, St. Thomas, Virgin Islands
Party Crashers is an eclectic group of musicians with tremendous talent, boundless energy, and unmistakable chemistry. This band has raised the bar on performance, due mainly to the showmanship and golden vocals of Jenny J, and the production genius of J Bateman.
Sitting in the studio after one of their many successful recording sessions, Jenny and J began to realize that combining their considerable talents could result in one of the best Top 40 cover bands in the United States. The two sent invitations to a select group of studio musicians with live performance skills, and Party Crashers was born.
Two years later, the dream of creating a powerhouse entertainment dynasty has been realized. They are outperforming the competition and dominating stages all over the country and the world. They have performed for some of the biggest high-profile corporate events in the country as well as destination celebrity weddings. This hot party band has been booked in Los Angeles, CA; Portland, OR; Las Vegas, NV; Scottsdale, AZ; Salt Lake City, Park City, Deer Valley and Cedar City, UT; Jackson Hole, WY; Denver and Telluride, CO; Minneapolis, MN; Raleigh, NC; San Antonio, Dallas, and Houston TX; New Orleans, LA; Clearwater Beach, FL; Toronto, Ontario, Canada; Dominican Republic; Puerto Rico; and St. Thomas, Virgin Islands; and many more destinations around the globe. No matter how hard you look, you won’t find another live performance band out there like this one.
Jenny J’s vocals have been featured on hundreds of albums, TV and radio ads, and soundtracks for Disney, CBS, NBC, Discovery Channel, Sci-Fi channel, the “Ricki Lake show,” “Joe Millionaire,” and the “Today Show.” Jenny recorded background vocals for the Osmond’s world tour, the Donny and Marie show, and has dance tracks on “Carmen Electra’s Ultimate Workout Mix,” “Jackie Warner’s Workout Mix,” Gillian McKeith’s “Boot-camp Workout,” The Ministry of Sounds’ annual 2009 “Best of Dance” release, NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” workout CDs, and “Losing it with Jillian Michaels.” Jenny has recorded live with the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, sung with the Utah Symphony, and has twice been a special guest with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Jenny has two CDs of her own available on iTunes.
J Bateman has produced several international best-selling fitness albums, and has composed and produced music for ESPN, NASCAR, HealthRider, NordicTrack and Billy Blanks’ Tae Bo. In addition to his work in the United States, J has lived and worked in the film industry in Japan, and he produced the debut album of the popular Brazilian band, Heróis Do Dia.
He has been on several major international tours as both a sound engineer and a guitar player, including tours of Europe and the former Soviet Union. J also works as a composer for film and T.V. and his original music can be heard in video games, radio advertisements, and feature films. He recently won a “Telly” for his original score in the short film, Nobody’s Listening. He also recently composed the score for the feature film Saints and Soldiers, which won 14 best picture awards at film festivals nationwide.
J was the music supervisor and composer for the ABC Family Movie of the Month, Everything You Want. In addition to his studio work, J helped to produce the critically acclaimed regional touring production of Evita. He was the music producer, conducted the orchestra, and played guitar in the pit. Recently, J composed the score for the action/adventure film, Outlaw Trail, a sports drama, Forever Strong, starring Sean Astin, and the horror film, House of Fears.
In addition to Jenny and J, Party Crashers includes Danny Savage, a film and theatrical star, studio vocalist, and popular front man for numerous bands; Mackenzie Gray, whose singing and dancing skills ratcheted him into the final rounds of Simon Cowell’s X-Factor; Bobby James, a second generation drummer and Berklee-trained percussionist; and Will Forshee, a computer specialist who creates the cool techno sounds on his keyboard that gives authenticity to the Party Crashers’ covers of today’s latest tunes. Alex “Crazy Legs” Rowe, who rocked the American Idol tour with his booming bass and unique dancing style, rounds out this dynamic team.
The bands’ players are so exceptional, and so versatile, they can perform music from multiple genres, including pop, rock, country, contemporary, acoustic, jazz, reggae, Latin, Broadway, holiday, and opera favorites.
With their specialty in live performance, they are able to rise to the highest level of expectation for top-notch entertainment for any event, whether an elegant banquet concert, an interactive dance experience, a full-production stage concert, or even something as big and important as the Presidential Inaugural Ball. Those who put Party Crashers on their “approved” guest list are bound to have the best event ever.
“The Party Crashers are without a doubt the best band I’ve ever hired. The music was spectacular and current and combined with choreographed dancing delivered excitement. They gave a performance that the business community still remembers and talks about. I would hire them for every event I am involved in.“
- Renee Colyer, CEO, Forefactor Inc., Toronto, Ontario, Canada
