ABOUT US

Playlist was developed, as a way of giving the client a live band, with the appeal of a DJ'ed event. We play the right songs....not what we want....we play what you want!

We have set up our sets to play continuously, and have songs run into each other, much like a dj would do. There is no dead air. Thus, we keep you on the dance floor.

Have you ever wondered why your average Vancouver band talks to the audience after each song? They end up playing less music. That's the easy way to do it. But Play>List is there to play music, so we end up playing 35% more music per night than any other band.

Playlist is about YOU, the client, the audience, the event. The Dance Floor will be packed all night, partying to Hit after Hit, from every era!

Playlist is a Vancouver Party & Event Band that Plays what "You want to Hear". Song selection taken from requests at over 300 events over the past 16 years.

One of the widest variety's of song selections you will find from any Vancouver Event Band!

Play>List can perform with as many as 10 members on stage, but has been mostly recognized as a 5 piece group. We can also downsize to a 4 piece band, or a 3 piece sometimes known as triple play [3>Play], or even as a duo [Double Play]....to work with almost any budget. We really are Vancouver's most affordable corporate/wedding band.
