The Trendells are much more than a band, they are an institution and they have entertained wonderful crowds all over the country from the largest corporations to private parties and wedding receptions. The Trendells is a ten member musical show that features the music of the sixties and the seventies with a particular emphasis on the “Motown Sounds” and contemporary music from Beyonce, Mary J. Blige, Bruno Mars, Pharrell and etc. – for the younger crowd.

The band features four vocalists as well as four rhythm players (drums, bass and lead guitars, and a full compliment of’ keyboards). The group also has a horn section.

The Trendells is a group with the richest tradition in Kentucky — spanning four decades and awarded “Best of the Bluegrass” status by the readers of the Lexington Herald Leader.

We can tailor our band to meet your needs, including a big band orchestra for the first set or the entire evening. We can mix the soul and Motown with the big band orchestra and the old standards. Choose the band that has been the favorite of so many corporations, country clubs, and individuals, The Trendells.

In summary, The Trendells has it all – great talent, crowd interaction, a great mix of music for all age groups, and satisfied customers.

The Trendells were the perfect band to keep our wedding guests on the dance floor all night long. The song selection & talent are still the best in Lexington. Every guest, no matter their age, enjoyed dancing the night away to the Trendells. We couldn’t ask for better entertainment at our wedding. Thank you for making the night so special!

My name is Dale Suttles, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass. Last March we booked The Trendells for an event we had at the Crown Plaza and what a time we had. I highly recommend the band for any event where music is required, and if your crowd loves to dance, hold on to your hats. I promise you that a good time will be had by all. Not only have The Trendells assembled a top notch group of musicians, the showmanship and musical delivery was the best I have heard in a long, long time. If you want a swinging band, and a show that will deliver a great time for all, I highly recommend The Trendells. The selection of songs as well as the precise vocals has made the Trendells favorites for many, many years. For an evening that will deliver on all levels, the Trendells are the way to go!
