The After Party Experience is a young, dynamic and energetic live band that features some of the region’s most talented singers and musicians together with an on-stage DJ. This innovative approach to live performances allows them to deliver continuous music as well as the most current Top 40 hits at every event they play. A typical performance includes over 100 songs, often played back-to-back, either as a 3-hour continuous performance with no breaks, or as a combination of live band, DJ and set breaks as requested to fit the flow of the event. Led by multi-talented married couple Erika Dawn and Daniel Rhodes, the APX travels far and wide to bring their unique non-stop approach to weddings, corporate events, colleges, festivals, and concerts across the country. “We provide something fresh for everyone young and old!” says lead vocalist and founder Erika Dawn. “What’s special about us is that our DJ doesn’t just play while the band is on break. He actually performs and spins alongside the band, creating a synergy between the songs you know and love and the energy of a live band. We take our audience on a musical journey every time we take the stage. This is not just another party band – it’s an experience!” With over 15 years of experience, members of the APX have performed with or for numerous recording artists, TV programs and public figures including President Obama, BET’s “Being Mary Jane”, VH1’s “Single Ladies”, Eli Manning, Nene Leakes, Pat Benatar, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many others. Equipped with an extensive song list featuring everything from rock, pop, country, soul, r&b, hip hop, jazz, Motown and current hits, The After Party Experience is ready to take the stage at your next event.
