Alter Ego

Alterego

Paul Minor created Alterego in 2002 to entertain folks looking for an excellent variety of music played with professional polish and fun loving style. Alterego jump starts a party with the great swing classics by Frank Sinatra, honky tonk hits by Willie Nelson, dynamite dance numbers, 80s hits from Prince and The Romantics, and a healthy dose of oldies from the likes of Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, and Sam Cooke. Alterego offers exceptional variety and FUN!

Many thanks for a wonderful show at our wedding. Several of our guests commented about how great you guys sounded. Thanks for taking the effort to make our wedding special, and please use me as a reference.

Thank you so much for the fantastic job you and the other members of Alterego did at our wedding! I think the music is the most important ingredient for a great reception, and y’all did not disappoint. Everyone danced all night, and really had such a great time. At least 100 people have commented on the band. Thanks so much – y’all really made the night!
– Ashley McGill

I’m sure you are used to getting nice word of mouth and rave reviews, but I thought I’d pass some more along anyways. I just got an e-mail from someone looking for your contact info who is planning a wedding and heard through the grapevine that the band at Mark and Linda’s wedding was the “best wedding band they had ever heard.”
– Rob Hargrove

We did not know what to expect when we would be entertained by a “live Texas band.” In our part of the world, the DJ is the big thing . . . well, were we pleasantly surprised. To have the top wedding band in Texas and to enjoy the breadth and depth of your music… it was awesome! You and your band blew us away. Too bad we are out of children to marry!
