GARDEN PARTY is a 3-piece, 4-piece, and 5-piece band that plays great California Country Rock, Oldies, Classic Rock and Classic Country and fun music!

The band breaks down to a 3-piece group when the venue is smaller and the Garden Party Trio has an amazing and full sound!  Garden Party features members from Butch Wax & The Hollywoods – one of the top bands in the area for the past 34 years.  Garden Party is a 2nd band for Gene and the guys and gals from Butch Wax to do different music and events and is a lot of fun!  The band plays lots of great oldies from the Butch Wax list and also country rock favorites from The Eagles, Vince Gill, Linda Ronstadt, Rick Nelson, Johnny Rivers, Fleetwood Mac, CCR, Elvis, Brooks & Dunn, Chuck Berry, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, and more!

“When we first got together the first song we learned was Garden Party by Rick Nelson” says Gene Ackmann. “We played it every time we rehearsed and it has always been a favorite of mine”. In the song Rick tells the story about the experience at Madison Square Garden and it became a #1 Hit for him in 72.  “But it’s all right now – I’ve learned my lesson well – you see you can’t please everyone so you’ve got to please yourself.”
