AOA (Alive On Arrival) is led by outstanding saxophone player, Laura Newman. Each AOA musician has been hand picked by Laura herself. The group plays pop and soul from every decade. The members of AOA have been performing for a cumulative of over 100 years. Their attention to detail and experience make them a hot band for all occasions. AOA is also able to perform incredible jazz sets.

"When I set out to find the perfect band for our wedding, I had no idea what I was getting myself into! You guys were smokin’ & exactly what I’d hoped for! Thank you for making the event funky & for showcasing my brother Chris. Can’t wait to come by Herb’s & hear you again!"
