Their down to earth funky R&B sound reflects the individual members love for this style of music. Formed in the early sixties, these nineteen year old musicians performed in the South Eastern United States Area for almost a decade, primarily for college student "dance" crowds. Just a note that during the mid 60's The Esquires spent their summers at Myrtle Beach and worked with some of the greatest shag groups. After a twelve year hiatus the band reformed in 1983 and began performing once again to the delight of the now thirty to sixty year old audiences. They have performed with the Beach Boys, Three Dog Night, Chubby Checker, and The Coasters since their revival. In 1995 they were guests of the Russian Government for an 11 day whirlwind tour of Moscow, where they performed at 5 of the most prestigious night clubs in Moscow plus a live television viewing audience of approximately 120 million.
The current accompaniment of instruments consists of a lead guitar, bass guitar, keyboards, drums, and three piece horn section. The band features one female and two male lead vocalists that provide audiences with a variety of vocal ranges. Combined with the addition of their four background musician/vocalist, the band is able to produce a 'Rich and Gutsy" R&B Sound.
