“We had so much fun dancing with The Band Wanted. I felt like they were close friends playing just for my husband and I. They are so personable, we've been to other dances with live bands and those other bands felt so distant. Joshua and Candy somehow climb into your heart and make you feel so good you want to dance.”
Joshua and Candy Carpenter are the hearts behind The Band Wanted. The Band Wanted plays Original Country Music, (made famous by Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, George Jones and Dolly Parton), as well as current Country hits, classic rock favorites, gospel and some award winning originals of their own. Additionally, Candy and Joshua are loved for their smiles and their beautiful harmony, both on and off the stage. Joshua's unique style of piano playing is remarkably mesmerizing. Their dream of singing and traveling together was born in Colorado where they were married and have three grown children. They enjoy meeting new people as they travel small town USA together in their "Band Wanted" toubus. Candy says, "We want to inspire others to be the best versions of themselves by being the best version of us!!" The Band Goes Where They Are Wanted!
