“Representing some of the very best talent in the music industry.”
– Kimery Events | Santa Monica, CA
Since 2011, The Replicas Music represents some of the very best talent in the music industry. All of our musicians on our roster are session players who live, eat, breathe music every day. If they aren’t in the studio or on stage, they are music educators molding the next generation of great talent. Many of the people on our Live Music Agency roster tour or have toured with some of the biggest names in music. We are a music talent agency and our team of comrades consists of serious professionals who can handle any genre fluently.
We provide Live Music Entertainment, Production, DJs and Dancers for all types of events including Wedding Ceremonies, Cocktail Hour, Receptions, Corporate Events, Holiday Events, Grand Openings and Mitzvahs.
