About Us

A.P.B. is a power pop-rock band that puts a unique spin on traditional pop and rock tunes. The band brings arrangements and a fresh perspective not heard in other venues today.

The band has a passion for creating fun and unique arrangements of classic tunes that everyone can relate to. The mix of the two provides a familiar feel but is different from the typical dance band.

A.P.B. is made up of top musicians that have been playing the circuit for many years. The band's talent and musical selections make them a great fit for many venues from small clubs to rockin' the bigger stages and everything in between.

Our typical song list includes songs like Purple Rain, Bad Mamma Jamma, Can't Stop the Feeling, Forget You, Hot in Here, Hard to Handle, Old Town Road and classics like Superstition, Jail House Rock and whatever it takes to keep the party going.
