They’ve tried to come for a couple years and this year their busy schedule allowed the Park City-based Party Crashers band to crash the Freedom Fire Fireworks show at Utah State University on Monday night. On their website, the band is described as the nation’s premiere large event party and corporate show band. On KVNU’s For the People program on Monday, which originated from Maverik Stadium, band-member Jenny Jordan talked about how they got started.
“It started about eight years ago,” she explained. “I had been doing a lot of different kind of performing and I wanted to do something new that I could get out and travel, meet a lot of people and do what I love and entertain.
“So Party Crashers was born. And we’ve collected our jewels along the way and the band rocks.”
Jordan went onto explain, “basically we’re not an artist band, we’re not a bar band, we don’t do original content yet. However, possibly coming soon to a neighborhood near you. We basically do business events like a big corporate show band (with) costumes, choreography, impersonations.
“So a really typical event for us would be like, we fly to Cabo and Tire Centers of America will bring their top earners of the year for their big retreat at the end of the year, their awards trip, and we’ll be the dance band for that.”
She said the band does cover songs but with a lot of high energy. They get a few days off after the Freedom Fire show, being about their eighth show in two and a half weeks. Jordan said they usually don’t get children and teenagers in their audience. So it was nice to have families together to enjoy their performance.
