The Roof Raisers

The Roof Raisers band is a professional party band in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area that excels in nearly every style and genre of music, and guarantees to make your special event a smashing success! Our musical specialties are pop, rock, country, 60s, 70s/disco, jazz, blues and swing/big band.

The Roof Raisers will lend excitement, flair, and class to your special occasion. Comprised of distinguished members of Dallas’ music community, we can provide virtually any type of musical experience or atmosphere you desire. From the beloved Big Band songs of the 30s and 40s, to Motown classics of the 50s and 60s, to the Disco era of the 70s, and finally to the latest dance music of the 80s and 90s through today’s hits – we do it all, and do it well. The Roof Raisers also play numerous Country/Western favorites ranging from Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley to Pat Green, Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift and George Strait. A large number of our affairs are wedding receptions and conventions, and with our musical diversity, people of all ages and tastes will be thoroughly entertained both on and off the dance floor. We can dress in black tie for formal affairs, “hip/casual” for a pop/rock event, or don boots, bolo ties and blue jeans for the C&W celebrations. It’s your party, and we’ll do whatever it takes to set the right mood for you and your guests!
