Tropix, Dallas / Fort Worth’s premier high-energy party band!

Tropix was formed in Fort Worth, TX in 1991. The band initially focused on instrumental jazz fusion, performing a mix of original material and music from other artists. Tropix released a CD in 1993 and had success performing in the DFW area for various events.

In 1995, singer Sam Tork joined Tropix, immediately increasing the versatility of the band. Demand for the “new” Tropix skyrocketed, and within a year Tropix claimed the position of house band at the 8.0 in Fort Worth, one of the most popular night spots in Texas. The recent addition of vocalist Stacia McNeil, along with the existing mix of sax, trumpet and steel drums, gives Tropix a multifaceted sound and versatility that few other bands can offer.

The band’s roots in jazz, combined with their ability to cover nearly any vocal tune, create a unique combination that allows Tropix to play an increasingly diverse variety of venues and events.

Since 1991, we’ve been livening up corporate parties, weddings and major public events with our unique blend of tight musicianship, an incredibly broad repertoire of music, and a sense of fun you won’t find anywhere else. No other local band can bring all of this to your event:

Dynamic male and female vocalists accompanied by a solid rhythm section

Jazz and dance tunes: we can provide instrumental “dinner music” during your meal, then crank up the party music after dessert

An up-to-date repertoire of over 100 songs, and the willingness and ability to add most any special song you’d like for your event

Musicians who understand how to “make” a party

Amazing horns, for a unique full sound

The experience to handle your event in a professional manner, so that you can worry about something else (like the caterer)

We never forget that our #1 job is to guarantee that you and your guests have a great time. That’s why we’ve performed over and over for groups like the Dallas Stars, Six Flags over Texas, the CBS 11 Early Show, Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, the Texas Rangers, the Fort Worth Main Street Arts Festival, Frito-Lay, TCU, Nokia Corporation, KTCK 1310 – The Ticket, the Plains Capital Fort Worth Bowl and over one hundred other corporate parties and weddings.

We’d love to be a part of your wedding or party!
