Artist Bio:

The Atlanta Allstars, are an absolute, out of this world dance band, perfect for wedding receptions and private parties with an outstanding cast of superb musicians and vocalists. Prime Source Entertainment Group is the exclusive booking agency for this unforgettable party band! The Atlanta Allstars are geared to please any audience, ranging from hip-hop, to classic jazz and swing, from intimate settings to major events and concerts. Every member of this star studded cast, is a seasoned veteran in all aspects of music, including musical productions and recordings.

The Atlanta Allstars consist of six outstanding musicians, with horns and is fronted by the most incredible lead vocalist and entertainer in this business. The band also has two amazing female vocalists. With every member in the fabulous band also being vocalists, there are limitless possibilities for a song list. And this band takes full advantage of that fact.

  The lead singer, Darren Leslie, is no stranger to audiences and event coordinators nationwide. He has graced the stage with some of the biggest names in the music industry, performing with Kool & The Gang, The Temptations, Debbie Gibson, Jewel and the SOS Band.  Darren has been the lead vocalist, choreographer and producer of many of Atlanta’s best party bands for over seven years prior to creating the Allstars.  Darren wrote the title song “Yes We Can” which was performed at President Barak Obama’s inauguration.  Darren has been a band consultant for The Atlanta Sound Band, Atlanta Rhythm And Groove and a host of others in the Atlanta Market.  Whether doing background vocals, being an opening act, or even being a member of the event, Darren Leslie is simply one of the most exciting and interactive artists to date. Who else could pull Virginia’s Governor Timothy Kaine on stage to sing “My Girl”? Who would have the nerve to convince First Lady Laura Bush to show off some dance moves of her own? Simply put, there’s no event to big or small for this man, or this band.
 
  Whether you are the bride to be, an event coordinator or planner, the only concern should be the date itself. The Atlanta Allstars travel with a road manager that will be onsite to help coordinate with all of the details.  If there is a good time to be had, however, leave that part to Darren Leslie and The Atlanta Allstars. You bring the people; The Atlanta Allstars will bring the party.

They had our members on the floor at the first song and held them captive until the very last song. Fantastic musicians and true entertainers.

The Eve of Janus, a long-standing Nashville Fundraising event benefiting the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, has used the Atlanta Allstars for several years. They are absolutely fantastic. They appeal to the 50-ish crowd, as well as to the college crowd. At one point this year, I looked up and they had three fathers on stage singing with them. They are engaging, seek guidance and requests from the hosts about the type of music that will appeal, and are exceptional artists. They are well-loved by our attendees. I've even had potential attendees ask if the Atlanta Allstars will be performing, and I've overheard college girls say that the want the AA to play their weddings! We will continue to book them as long as they are available!

Oh my gosh,
Darrin and the Atlanta All Stars did a fabulous job at the Heritage Ball.  Darrin and his female side kick really know how to work the crowd.  They did a lot of interactive numbers that required audience participation and then when time to get down…... Really blew the socks off people.  Thank you for a great job.

Lee,

They were fabulous! Received rave reviews from everyone. I suspect they will have several bookings from the wedding. Guests were incredulous-many asked how I found the band-I gave you all the credit for being great to work with & super reliable.

Thank you for helping to make their dream come true.
