About The Band

The Late Show Band is Southern California’s premier 70s/80s (some 60s, too!) pop variety band. In addition to performing classic pop and dance songs, The Late Show Band also performs some fun classic TV theme and film songs such as the FRIENDS’ show theme I’ll Be There For You, ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW’s Time Warp, THE MUNSTERS theme and a medley of songs from the 90s film THAT THING YOU DO, among others. The crowds love to sing along! With everyone in the band singing lead and backup vocals, they're a formidable harmony group, very professional and experienced. But most of all, they’ll bring FUN to your event!

The Late Show Band members:

Jimmy Caprio (bass/vocals) has performed with Linda Ronstadt, Nicolette Larson, Andrew Gold, Rick Nelson, Herman's Hermits and the Romantics, in addition to playing 'Paul' in 'Beatles' bands all over the country.

Steven Beasley (lead guitar, vocals, bandleader) met Jimmy while playing in Andrew Gold's (Thank You For Being A Friend, Lonely Boy) band a few years back. Steven's also shared the stage w/ David Crosby, Warren Zevon, Brian Hyland (who recorded 3 of his songs), and many more. He was Assistant Director of the Scoring Dept at Paramount Pictures (Hollywood) in the early 90s. A published author and songwriter, Steven is the group's bandleader and producer.

Kurt Fries (keyboards/guitar/vocals) has performed with Steve Perry (Journey), Southern Pacific, Lou Diamond Phillips (La Bamba), among others. He's a published songwriter and musical director at Moorpark Playhouse.

Sharon Roberts (vocals/percussion/administrative) has a wide variety of singing styles, all of which she performs brilliantly. She's shared the stage with Manhattan Transfer, produced and directed many musicals, and teaches voice lessons. Sharon also takes care of many details to make sure the client is satisfied and things run smoothly during the event.

Michael Ness (drums/vocals) has the raspy 'soul' voice of the group, and shines on the R & B material, sounding something like Wilson Pickett, in addition to keeping the band tight w/ his percussion skills. Mike has played w/ Bad Poetry, many 'Beatle' bands as 'Ringo', and is an excellent showman.

Michael Forbes (sax/flute/vocals) has played with many pro bands over the years, and is currently with Which One’s Pink (Pink Floyd tribute band) and The Hollywood Stones (Stones tribute band.) He shines on sax, and flute as well. 

The Late Show party band will make your event shine and keep crowd dancing and singing along to over 3 decades of the best, most danceable radio rock and pop hits.
