This two-man band is St. Louis’ premiere entertainment choice for all of your live entertainment needs!
Musicology offers the most diverse musical experience you will find in the Midwest with the sound of a full band and a song list that spans decades and includes current pop, rock, disco, country, swing, and R&B.
The band consists of two veterans of the entertainment industry, each with more than 20 years of performing experience in music and comedy. Jimmy (aka. The Hat) is one of St. Louis’ elite guitarists and has had a guiding hand in the success of multiple bands since the early 90’s, including Swing Cat Swing and SLAM. Brad (aka. Sugar Lips) is a certified crooner and began delivering his velvety vocals with his self-named jazz quartet in the mid-90’s. He started blending jazz and R&B with his Texas-based band Cold Sweat, before returning to St. Louis and teaming up with Swing Cat Swing and SLAM.
Combining live music with well-produced accompaniment, Musicology delivers a full-band experience with only two people. That means the party is just as big, just as loud, and just as epic as you want it to be…but, unlike bands with 5 or more players, Musicology can easily control the volume. That means no room is too big or too small for Musicology.
And, Musicology is much more flexible and affordable than an 8-piece band! However, if you really want a full band, additional players, including drums, bass, horns, and a female vocalist can be added to create the best full-band experience in the St. Louis area…JB & The Musicology!
“These guys made our tiny reception totally come to life. They are incredibly talented, easy to communicate with, and extremely professional. All night I got nothing but compliments on how fantastic the band was! We even had a totally random wedding song by an artist not many people know. We were apprehensive about a band learning a song like this, but decided it wouldn’t be our wedding without it. Jimmy and Brad NAILED IT! It was a super special moment for my husband and me! I was so relieved to know they had everything taken care of and kicked our party off when we walked in. They truly made our night one of a kind. Highly recommend!!!
Brian and I wanted to express our sincere gratitude for your help and Musicology's performance at our wedding last weekend. The members of Musicology were very professional and are wonderful performers. They were tentative to our needs, read the crowd well and communicated with Brian and I to ensure everything went smoothly. We received many compliments from our guests about Musicology. My mom and I are also very appreciate of how flexible and responsive you were to our requests and inquiries. If Contemporary Productions or Musicology need a client reference in the future, please keep us in mind, as we would be happy to provide that for you. Thank you!!
“My wife and I had Brad and Jimmy sing at our wedding and it was one of the best parts of the wedding. Besides being fantastic singers (look up his videos on YouTube) they were both interactive and very entertaining. Originally my wife wanted a dj for our wedding so I took her to see them play at a casino, all it took was one song for her to listen to for her to say she wanted them at our wedding. We both highly recommend Musicology for any entertainment needs. ”
