High Society


Talent? Dynamic vocalists? A hot horn section? Try all three!

High Society’s vocalists are unsurpassed.  Local legend, Prince Havely, is loved by event planners and clients alike and his vast repertoire and charm appeals to guests of all ages. The band’s female vocalists Jami and La Teisha, are incredibly entertaining vocalists who work together to create an impressive energy that few bands can match. Add our guitarist, Freddie, a crazy-fun guitarist who sings better than most front vocalists and see why everyone talks about High Society’s vocal prowess.  The three horn players are truly exceptional, full time musicians who add excitement with every sound. High Society’s musicians have played IN THE BANDS of stars such as Wilson Pickett, The Flamingos, and jazz great Walter Beasley. Their immense talent allows the band to sound authentic playing all types of music from Swing to ‘70s-80s Retro to today’s music. In addition, our sax player is also an excellent classical flautist. He and our keyboardist can play ceremonies and/or cocktail hour. Strings can also be added.

High Society has been described as "elegant, but fun", "entertaining without being over-the-top" and "A band that appeals to guests from 12 to 82". High Society was honored to play both of President Bush’s official inaugural balls and has played at many of the top Galas and social events in the Baltimore/Washington area.

Led by drummer Ken Stern for over 15 years, High Society really knows how to make a party flow.  Ken’s experience and expertise allow him to work with you to make sure every aspect of the evening is coordinated, the music you want is played and that your expectations are exceeded.

On behalf of the Presidential Inaugural Committee, I would like to thank you for your participation at the Bush-Cheney Inaugural Ball. Your superb performance was greatly appreciated by the entire Inaugural staff.
Dennis Grubb, Presidential Inaugural Committee Entertainment Chairman

BRAVO! Right now I'm giving you a standing ovation! You really made the event a winner and me look like a star. Smooth and polished are two words that come to mind. Smooth in that everything flowed much better than in the past. Polished in that High Society added that something extra that moved us from amateurs to professionals.
