The Clubhouse Band is any combination of the players below (and a few others ocassionally). Funky folk rock and reggae to your face! On top of 2 sets of original material, Ryan Tennis and the Clubhouse Band have an extensive cover repertoire, including songs by the Beatles, Paul Simon (including almost all of the album "Graceland"), Bill Withers, Jack Johnson, Toots and the Maytals, Stevie Wonder and more.
We're dedicated to providing a real service to people with our music (i.e. - a kickass party that brings people together), while maintaining our identity as an original, artistically minded group. We always mix originals into our party sets and we only play the cover songs that we love. Most importantly we want to bring that warm, beautiful energy and connection to people that only comes when the rhythm is right and the music is played from the heart.
"The day we found your band we all knew, this was the artist and band we wanted! Ryan, your band and your music not only complimented the day of celebration but took it to a whole other level!!! We loved, loved your music, the songs, the atmosphere!!! You all did a wonderful job and made the entire day and night something that we all will never forget!!! We feel like we had the privilege of hosting an upcoming artist that is on his way to bigger things!!
We are so very blessed to have had the experience of having you sing your beautiful songs for all of us at Heather and Jason's wedding. Thank you, thank you. You have certainly been given a wonderful talent that many people will enjoy for many years to come!"
"Thank you so much for playing our wedding. Everything about the band was awesome. The music at the ceremony, the cocktail hour and of course the reception were perfect. We can't express enough how happy we were to have you and the Clubhouse band play. On the day after the wedding and over this past weekend, since we have been home, we've been able to catch up with most of our guests and they have all told us how great the music was and what a great band we had picked.
One of the concerns I had about the our reception was that people wouldn't dance and they would all end up hanging out at their tables. Thank you so much for getting everyone on the dance floor!"
"You guys were awesome. We have gotten so many compliments since June 1 about "the duo who played the ceremony and cocktail hour, who were those guys?!" We wish we could have listened to you more at the cocktail hour without family interference! Please let us know anytime you're in the DC area, we'd love to see you again and--if you're performing--hear you again!
Thank you for making the ceremony exactly what I hoped it would be."

"AMAZING! We hired Ryan and his band for our backyard wedding. We didn't want a typical DJ but wanted a fun band who would play songs people knew and were hoping people would dance and have a great time. They were PERFECT!! I think every single guests at our wedding was on their feet dancing and singing along. I'm still getting emails and texts from friends and family raving about them!!! They made an already great day a perfect one for us!!! They also played our ceremony and cocktail hour and we couldn't ask for anything better. They learned our 1st dance songs and played them beautifully, better then the originals. Hire them, you wont regret it!!!!"
"My husband Stu and I just wanted to thank you for making Ryan and Katie's magical weddingeven MORE magical. You and the guys were amazing. My friends can't stop raving! You now have a groupies in their 60's!!!! I've been on the treadmill this morning to your CD-love it! Thanks again,"
