The Blaire Reinhard Band provides live entertainment for upscale events around the greater New York City area. Whether you need tasteful background music or an all-night dance party, the BRB will make it happen.
Seasoned professionals in their own right, the BRB is anything but your typical society band—they're a group of family, friends, singers and songwriters who are actively involved in the East Coast independent music scene and who also operate a boutique music production house for TV and film.
The BRB's standard ensemble features five multi-tasking musicians: at any given time, you might hear electric and acoustic guitar, piano, organ, synth, harmonica, mandolin, accordion, ukulele, bass, drums, percussion, and/or any combination thereof. We also regularly bring in some phenomenal saxophonists and other instrumentalists for larger events. With everyone in the core band singing lead vocals and backup harmonies as well, the BRB is able to provide a fullness and versatility not often achieved by a quintet—spanning genres from indie, pop, 90s, 80s, and classic rock, to motown, jazz, country, oldies, you name it.
Beyond the BRB, Blaire (vocals, keys, bandleader) works as a composer, session singer, and music supervisor for TV and film (on projects from Chappelle's Show to Darren Star's new series Younger). Gray (vocals, keys, guitars—and Blaire's brother) has had an exciting music career involving international tours, studio sessions with major label recording artists, and prestigious NYC theater productions. Phil (vocals, guitars) has become a staple of the NJ nightlife scene with his full calendar of crowd-pleasing, high-energy acoustic shows. Wade (bass, harmonica, vocals–and Blaire's husband) played in bands with Gray at Princeton University, and now works as an intellectual property attorney in NYC. Keith (drums, percussion, vocals) does double-duty as the band’s drummer and sound engineer, and balances a career in the wireless industry by day. Members of the BRB have worked alongside and/or shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen, Garland Jeffreys, John Popper, Richie Sambora, Stanley Clarke, Questlove, Les Paul, and Alicia Keys, to name a few. Blaire and Gray have also co-written and performed orchestral and big band songs onstage with their grandfather Doc Severinsen, former bandleader of the NBC Orchestra on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson.
