The Sensations are a dynamic four-piece group whose musical presentation will get your attention. With rich, full vocals, melodic solos and intricate harmonies, it’s evident that these guys work well together.
The Sensations morph seamlessly between standards, oldies, R&B, Motown and dance tunes of today. They have developed into one of the most sought after bands in the area.
All of the band members are accomplished musicians and recording artists who have been celebrated locally and nationally.
John Rongo (guitar/vocals) was a member of Menagerie, a successful rock band in the late seventies with recording contracts, a popular night club, and a clothing store. John then joined up with Lary Paoletta (drummer/programmer/vocals) to form the group Savannah, another successful local group that worked six nights a week consistently for a number of years.
In the nineties, John and Larry joined Chip Byers (bass/guitar/vocals) in The Five Sensations. Although the group has evolved, John, Chip and Larry have been the anchors of this band and haven’t missed a beat in over a decade.
Jeff Green (lead vocals/saxophone), who has performed with many local and national R&B and Gospel acts, joined in 2009. This combination was an instant success, and some say The Sensations has never been better.
The band was absolutely phenomenal. The dance floor was packed all evening. We had so many comments from our guests saying just how great they were, and some specifically saying The Sensations were the best live band they have ever seen at a wedding. We knew they were going to be good, having seen them perform before we booked them, but they were way better than good! Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so special. Could not be more highly recommended.Amy & Philip FirrellJul 23, 2016Glidden House
