Nancy Paolino & the Black Tie Band
Nancy Paolino and The Black Tie Band is a first-called special event dance band in the Northeast. The BTB has been selected by The Knot and Modern Bride national publications as one of the best bands in the country and is also featured in Rhode Island Monthly as “Not Just Another Wedding Band.” The BTB is well known for creating an elegant environment filled with energy and fun that inspires even the “non-dancer” to jump onto the dance floor and move.
Incorporated in 1995, Nancy Paolino and the Black Tie Band has been receiving rave reviews since inception. Performing in a live format exclusively, the band features Paul Bouley on piano, Don Payne on bass, Stuart Krous on guitar, Vinny Pagano on drums and Nancy as lead female vocalist, MC and band leader. From the Rhode Island Governor’s Ball and National Governors’ Convention to the most elegant weddings on Bellevue Avenue in Newport, the BTB enjoys an extraordinary reputation. The BTB is a leader in the industry and maintains a strong and impressive performance history. With a repertoire that exceeds over 900 songs from every decade since the 1950s, all will have the opportunity to jump on the floor and move about in a crazy fashion (dance).
