Band Bio

The Love Handles are a 13-piece high energy party band featuring multiple singers, a full blazing horn section, and a butt-shaking rhythm section. They perform a mix of floor-filling dance hits from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s. 
The Love Handles formed in 2014 as a modest dad band project in Mike’s garage and have since evolved into a large, fun-loving group of guys and gals with a professional stage show whose sole drive is to get people dancing and partying.
The Love Handles are known for their hard work, humble attitude, and passionate dedication and commitment to music. They rehearse every week and continually add new songs to keep the show fresh.
