The "Ivey Brother's Band" is a group made up of three brothers and one of the brothers, Wilson's son. Richard and Robert Ivey (twin brothers) began playing and performing in high school back in 1965. Wilson, the younger brother, joined the group in 1968 and the final member, Chase joined in 2004.
The brothers first played for high school dances and proms progressing to college dances and frat parties at Florida State University, The University of West Florida and The University of Florida. Upon graduation from college, they continued to play in the tri-states area of Florida, Alabama, and Georgia. Their ability to entertain any group with their wide variety of music became well known as they took the club scene in Dothan, Alabama renown in the 70's and 80's for partying by storm. A European tour in 1977 and the release of a local hit song entitled "It's Not Worth The Pain" in 1978 made the group's fame complete.
"The Ivey Brothers" have played with and backed such nationally known groups as "The Pointer Sisters", "The Coasters", "Johnny Lightning", "Jeannie Pruitt", "Billy Crash Craddock", "Brook Benton", and "The Platters". They have even had the honor of having their name placed in "The Congressional Record" by an impressed Florida politician.
Today, country clubs, golf tournaments, weddings and corporate parties fill The Ivey Brothers schedule.
The use of the latest "state of the art" equipment makes it possible for the group to perform anywhere and at any volume level to meet the need of the occasion. The group travels with its own computer controlled theater lighting and costumes from formal to casual.
