The festival band
The Festival Band is a group of musicians based in Tucson, Arizona who provide live music entertainment in local clubs and venues. We play Tejano, R&B, Old School, Funk, Country and a little bit of Soft Rock. If you book us for an event and want us to learn a couple of songs, we will do that too! We play by our motto, "Live Music Without Borders" - Music for Everyone!
We dedicate this website to our brother and founder of the festival band, Danny Sanchez
We Are The Festival Band and we invite you to join us for a great time and great music for your dancing pleasure. Bring an extra pair of shoes because we'll keep you dancing all night long!
This is how we do it!
We are so honored to have been selected to perform at the Las Vegas Tejano Music National Convention's Gran Baile with some of the greatest Tejano Music artists like Jay Perez and David Lee Garza! We thank the team at the Tejano Music National Convention who selected The Festival Band out of the many talented groups from all over the nation the past two years. It is truly a dream come true and we want to share our excitement with family, friends and the entire state of Arizona! Make plans now to join us in this amazing journey and let's show Vegas HOW WE DO IT in Arizona!

our friend & roadie, Andres
Our Brother, Andrew (Andres) Phipps, went Home with our Lord on April 20, 2012. So fitting you left this world on a Friday Night while we were performing, and so were other Tejano bands in town. We dedicated our night to you and played for you that night in hopes of seeing you dance the night away as you did so many times. When you helped Festival set up, you never asked for ANYTHING. You were always the first one to show up and the last to leave. You gave so much to us and we always counted on you. How you Loved to lend a hand. We will miss you...you became a part of our family. I can still hear your voice telling me...."you're late, I've been waiting for you" every time you helped us set up. I still remember the last words you said to me and Stella....."I Love you guys." We lost a dear friend, our brother in music! RIP Andres. Love you....Rick & Stella .... Danny, Eddie, Bobby, Charlie, Patrick, Tommy & the Festival Family
