Formed in 1996, Banana Seat is a 10-piece band hailing from the Norman/Oklahoma City area. Their quest to pay ultimate tribute to the greatest artists and songs of the 1970s and 80s has earned them recognition as one of the top musical acts in the Southwest Region.
You will not hear more accurate renderings of difficult-to-cover bands such as Earth, Wind and Fire, Chicago and Steely Dan anywhere else. The band displays an impressively diverse repertoire, covering everything from Donna Summer to Styx to Squeeze. Their grand instrumentation, including a four-piece horn section and rich, complex vocal arrangements, ensures that each number is given the attention to detail it deserves.

"We love Banana Seat. Great Band!!! Banana Seat was great as always. The dance floor was packed until they turned the lights on and kicked us out! Really enjoyed their new songs, "Treasure" and "Get Lucky"! They played our favorite Chicago and Earth Wind and Fire songs perfectly, as usual. My college kids loved them as did the old folks!" – 2014 Taste of Tulsa Event
