Long time reader. Love the Jeff Eats’ site.
I need a great 50s-60s Rock N Roll band for a charity event that I am the Chairperson of. The charity event is in September, 2016 and will be held in North Miami. Expecting around 300 people.
I have seen a number of south Florida 50s-60s bands and although many are very good, I would love to have a band that is really special and if possible not based in the immediate area so that its appearance will be be fresh, in that most if not all of the guests have never seen the band before.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.



Got the perfect band for you, Johnny Dee and the Starlights (I know-Joey Dee & The Starliters)!

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, the band is amazingly-good!

Jeff Eats is thinking (actually I’m knowing) that your crowd will go absolutely nuts over Johnny Dee and the Starlights- as they put on a great show! I’m also thinking, that because Johnny Dee and the Starlights is based out of Orlando and seldom plays- Dade/Broward/Palm Beach Counties- that most of your guests- will not have seen the band before!

Like I said before, the band is amazingly good!

You can check the band out at

Thanks for reading…


Calling themselves “your time machine back to the early days of rock ‘n’ roll,” this Florida band features music made famous by Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, and Elvis Presley, among many others. Songs include classics like “Runaround Sue,” “Only the Lonely,” and “Unchained Melody.” Come hear the hits of yesteryear played the way they were meant to be played!

Johnny Dee and the Starlights play the music of the ‘50s and ‘60s with such passion, intensity, and authenticity that you’ll swear you’ve been transported back in time. Much more than your average cover band, Johnny Dee and the Starlights are out to change the way you think about tribute performances. Featuring popular actor and musician Andy Matchett as Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Hank Williams, and his own alter ego, Johnny Dee – along with a five-piece band, including the lovely Starlettes – this is a performance you will not want to miss!

    All I can say is WOW!

  12. On your say so we bought 2 tickets and saw yesterday’s matinee and I have to tell you it was a terrific show. This band runs absolute circles around the local 50s and 60s bands that play the Miami- Palm Beach area. Too bad Johnny Dee isn’t a local act as it would be busy playing venues literally all the time.

    All of the country clubs and communities in the area should be looking to book this band.

  13. Ellen G says...

    This was a great recommendation. Loved the band.

  14. Lo Lo says...

    The matinee was great. Fabulous band.

  15. Garcia says...

    They will be doing a free show in Sunrise this is a fun time food trucks and rock and roll

  16. Anne Gleason says...

    I recently saw the band at The Villages and they are terrific.
