ABOUT THE BAND
Under the musical direction of Tom & Tony Perrone, owners of Perrone Bros. Entertainment, Naked Soul has become an award-winning event band. Comprised of the most talented and sought-after performers in the NYC area, their unique combination of youthful energy, musical diversity, and years of experience have earned Naked Soul a reputation for being the area’s most exciting party band.
An all-star lineup of talent, these highly accomplished musicians have individually worked with many of today’s most celebrated artists such as Carlos Santana, The Roots, Mark Ronson, Miley Cyrus, Lauryn Hill, Shakira, John Legend, Matchbox 20, Usher, Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Prince, Rob Thomas, Pink, Deborah Cox, Lalah Hathaway, David Sanborn, Blood Sweat & Tears, Chaka Kahn, Gloria Gaynor, Vicki Sue Robinson, Jose Feliciano, Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, among many others!
Naked Soul has experience performing in concert settings as well as every type of private event including wedding receptions, corporate affairs, fundraiser events and galas. The band has a history of performing in notable venues throughout the New York area and is preferred by many of the area's top caterers and event planners. When event planners have their pick of the best bands for their own personal events, they choose Naked Soul. Other high-profile clients include some of the most recognizable organizations such as Coca-Cola, Madison Square Garden, NY Rangers, NY Knicks, RCF USA, FUSE TV, Chase Bank, UBS, KPMG, Council on Foreign Relations, Trinity Wall Street, Condé Nast, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals and the Greenwich International Film Festival.
At the heart of the band is an extremely tight rhythm section (guitar, keys, bass, drums) with a history of working together for many years. A strong musical foundation accented by two funky horns (tenor sax & trumpet), an exciting percussionist and five dynamic vocalists, this distinctive line-up enables Naked Soul to deliver an incredibly wide-ranging repertoire. From The Beatles to Bruno Mars, the band covers a broad range of musical genres including Jazz, Swing, Rock, Soul, Disco, Funk, Pop, EDM and R&B. In a time when "track bands" have become prevalent due to lack of musical diversity, this talented group of musicians always performs completely live and without assistance from karaoke tracks or computers.
Naked Soul has been voted "Best Live Band" by the readers of Westchester Magazine for 9 years running (2014 - 2022) and was also featured on the cover of Westchester Magazine's annual "Best of Westchester" edition in July 2019! Furthermore, Perrone Bros. Entertainment easily owes their 5 STAR rating on Wedding Wire and The Knot to this incredible group of musicians.
With every high-energy performance, Naked Soul proves that live music can simultaneously provide a festive yet elegant atmosphere. With such a high caliber group of experienced musicians, it's no surprise that this band knows how to get the party started and keep guests on the dance floor all night long. It is for this reason that they’ve often been described as “the life of the party”!
