Dance Force | « Dance Bands

Dance Force is a high-energy dance/show band that is co-lead by dynamic lead vocalist Laura Farrow and her husband keyboardist Rick Agronick. What this exciting group does best is entertain! Whether it's a showroom or dance venue, wedding reception, Bar Mitzvah or Casino lounge, "Dance Force" will impress. The front vocalists are wireless. They'll often be seen performing on the dance floor or interacting with seated guests.

Dance Force's rich vocals, pulsating rhythms and fun filled stage personalities will keep you dancing and partying all night long. They use state-of-the-art technology to achieve the best sound possible using enhancement tools such as Laptop MIDI sequencing (triggering high-tech sounds from digital samplers, drum & synthesizer modules). The band tastefully blends this technology with their electrifying "live" sound to produce music that is second to none.

Dance Force was the house band at Trump Marina in Atlantic City for 8 years (1991-1997). They have also performed worldwide including the Park Lane Hotel in Hong Kong, The Bayside Club in Yokohama Japan and on "The Enchantment of the Seas" cruise ship touring the Caribbean.


Dear Melanie, Rick & Laura, Melanie, thank you so much for taking such good care of us and recommending "Dance Force" - Rick & Laura & all the talented people in their group. They were terrific and did an outstanding job. They made Kristen's wedding extra special. I had so much fun dancing and watching the band perform. It couldn't have been more fun for everyone.

Thanks again! Lynne & George Kranich (Parents of the Bride)

Hi Rick & Laura, I can't say thank you enough. You are a great band and you totally outdid yourself Saturday night. I had to do things towards the end of the night and really didn't have the opportunity to thank you properly. You will be hearing from me and hopefully we can do some more affairs together. Once again, thank you for a great time.

Maryann Hovan Schiavone Construction

Dear Rick & Laura, This letter is long overdue, but I would like to take the opportunity to personally thank you for the beautiful music you provided for our Anniversary Dinners of 2000 and 2001. Your band is outstanding and Laura you have a very special gift in your voice. Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was obvious if you looked out at the dance floor. You always conducted yourselves in a professional manner and it was good to leave the crowd in your capable hands. It was a pleasure to work with you and I hope in the future we would have that opportunity again.

Sincerely, Laurie Choate AllState Insurance Company

Dear Rick and Laura, "O, what a night!" Thanks for being the most fun and talented entertainment we could have imagined for Jamie's wedding. I can't tell you how many cards, e-mails and phone calls we've received about the wedding in general, and about Dance Force in particular. WOW!!!! I knew you were the perfect band for us the night we met you in Atlantic City. We need your schedule so a group of us can follow you to Atlantic City. I never dreamed I'd be a "groupie".

Elaine Leonardi (Mother of the Bride)

Dear Rick & Laura: Thank you, thank you, Thank you for the part that you both (and the other members of the band) took in making our Party in to the "Special " event that it was. You all were just wonderful and we had many, many positive comments from our guests about the wonderful band and the music they play. The background music at the "Cocktail" hour was superb. It was just the right kind of music for conversation and socializing. Hopefully, you will get some more work from this exposure. As for us, you know how much we love your type of music. And Laura, you must have been exhausted at the end of the night. You really earn your money. I know I needed help lifting my feet on to the bed that night. But it was great fun and we had a wonderful evening. Many, many thanks to you. We will watch your schedule and come to see you again. Love & Hugs to you.
