The decade of the 1970's generated some of the greatest music ever written. Songs we listened to on AM radio at home, in the car, and at the beach, include unforgettable masterpieces by major superstars, definitive singles by forgotten greats, and fun, quirky novelties by one-hit wonders. These songs reverberate through the decades and have become the soundtrack to our lives. The nostalgic bliss they invoke forever remain in our consciousness. Unfortunately, modern music has lost its soul and the magic of the '70's seems to be lost forever.
The K-Tel All Stars are a stellar representation of a rock concert straight out of the '70's! Their show is engaging, professional, humorous, and exhilarating, as they take their audience on a musical journey through the unparalleled songs that define a generation.
The band consists of five exceptional musicians from Southern California, each one of them an all-star in their own right. Borrowing from a vast collective experience, they are more than capable of performing each classic treasure, both musically and vocally.
Their passion for the hit songs of the decade is manifest in their meticulous examination of each song to the minutest detail, so as to deliver only the best quality representation of each musical gem.

We kept watching the band and wondering, who are these guys? They're some of the best musicians we've ever seen. Then a couple months later we found out that the same band was opening up for us. We couldn't wait to see The K-Tel All-Stars again. They're talented and absolutely authentic. And in most cases, even better than the original. If you haven't see them, then you're missing out on a great experience. We strongly suggest that you see this band!

The K-Tel All-Stars show last night was phenomenal – had the best time I’ve had in a long time!
- David Brighton, Space Oddity – The Ultimate David Bowie Experience
I saw this band for the first time last Thursday night at the House of Blues in Anaheim, and I have to say that it was absolutely one of the most enjoyable shows that I have ever witnessed . Everyone in this band is a top notch musician and their vocals were just unbelievable! Bottom line, these guys do it right. Every song is played with extreme attention to detail and the song selection was so refreshing; nobody plays these great songs anymore. You don't have to take my word for it, do yourself a favor and go see them the next time they're in your town. I guarantee you, you are going to be completely Blown Away. Excellent job guys!
- Jim Wooten, Bassist & Keyboardist for Led Zepagain
Their playlist is a blast from my 70's childhood past! I think I yelled, "F@%K YEEEEAH" at the beginning of every song they played. You will too!
- Mike McManus, Guitarist for Queen Nation
Thank you for a great show yesterday! It was so busy that I didn't get a chance to come and thank you personally, but you guys were awesome and the crowd loved you! Thank you so much! I hope we can book you again for next year!
- Ken Hartley, Manager for Fiesta Hermosa (Memorial Day Event)
This is the band to see, people! If you're into this era of great music, you won't be sorry.
- Terry Myers, Guitarist for The Ultimate Stones
There's only one band that we would ask to play at our event, and that's The K-Tel All-Stars. Everyone, from young to old fell in love with this band. Before the band had finished this year's performance, I had already booked them for next year. That's how fantastic they are!
- Mark Peabody, President of The Circle City Rotary - Corona, CA
That was one of the best shows we've ever had at Alvas Showroom. So much fun, it should be illegal!
- Art Valdez, Owner of Alvas Showroom
Great live show at Fiesta Hermosa. These guys killed it! Amazing harmonies, perfect musicianship, and an interactive front man. Go see these guys the first chance you get!
- Jeffrey W.
The K-Tel All-Stars lived up to their name and brought down the house! Everyone is excited to see you perform at our event next year.
- Michael L. Rager, Circle City Chairman & Event Coordinator
You guys were PHENOMENAL last night. Just, WOW! Officially my VERY FAVORITE BAND!!
- Nikki M.
One hell of a fun night!! All those songs bring back great memories!!! You guys nail it!
- Mike Polwektow
My wife and I have been coming to the free summer concert for five years, and THIS is the biggest crowd we've ever seen. We're fans for life!
- Tom C.
Your band puts on a show and plays songs that no other band would dare to play. I mean, where can you see a band play Carry On Wayward Son, Dream On, and Bohemian Rhapsody, then play Saturday Night (Bay City Rollers) and I Think I Love You (Partridge Family)? The answer; NOWHERE! I absolutely love your band! The K-Tel All-Stars are the ONLY band that could make you believe that the 70's really are back. We can't wait to see you again.
- Paola H.
You guys freakin’ ROCK!!!! That is all.
- Mike A.
The K-Tel All-Stars show was fantastic! I loved the setlist, and you guys sounded great. Such a great set of 70's tunes that got the whole place at the HOB Foundation room dancing and singing along. It’s obvious to me that all of you are talented musicians, and you put a ton of work into getting the songs right. Thank you for a great evening of music. Can't wait to see this band again!
- Todd Volker
This important songwriting genre had gone unfulfilled for far too long.... until now. This five piece band has big sound and steps up to the challenge of reproducing the music that set the mood when many of us first discovered music, fell in love, went to our first dance, landed our first kiss and much more. Not only did we hear all the songs true to form, but the boys were also very interactive and engaging with the crowd, and just a whole lot of fun inside the intimate atmosphere of the House of Blues. I for one, could not stop singing and dancing, and at work today still had all those songs in my head! If you're into the music of the decade of best songwriting.... Don't miss The K-Tel All-Stars!!!
- Richard D.
Nobody, I mean Nobody does the music of the 70’s better. They are all awesome musicians and singers. If you grew up in the 70’s, these guys will transport you back in time when they perform.
- Jeff P.
I can't believe how absolutely incredible your band is! You should be called, The K-Tel Superstars!
- Danny Erzinger
Jim Wooten and I went to The Foundation Room at House Of Blues Anaheim last night to support our friends in a new band on the scene called The K-Tel All-Stars... A salute to number one hits and one hit wonders of the 70s!! Absolutely fantastic...must see. Such a fun night!!
- Brenda Wooten
The K-Tel All-Stars are my "feel good" band of the year.
- Nathan D.
You guys hit it out of the ballpark, and then some. Five guys with more energy than most people in their 20’s have. As I told the drummer afterwards, that’s the best damn drummer I’ve seen and heard in Southern California. Would love to see you guys down here in San Diego before the end of the year. Keep the hits coming!
- Dave Thomas
Been meaning to get to one of their shows, because I love my pal, the drummer Seth. Yesterday at Fiesta Hermosa I finally got a chance. I never stopped singing and dancing. It was like a flashback to my 70’s childhood. All of the guys in the band sing so well. They rocked my world!💕And the energy in the crowd was off the hook!
- Candace G.
All 70’s, all night. High energy from start to finish. These guys make you want more!! 4 thumbs up!!!
- Robin R.
This band is amazing! You need to see them!!
- Debbie B.
The K-Tel All-Stars were beyond words. The amount of talent is amazing. Plus the fact that you accurately transcribed each song down to each meticulous note. The amount of songs with each tone accurately reproduced was jaw dropping. It is very evident how much the band loves playing the music. Great show!! Can't wait for the next one.
- Tim M.
They are so far out! The band takes you on a trip back to the 70's!
- Tami H.
Boy, oh boy. I only watch/follow a few tribute bands, and the ones I do are super—the best around. I think The K-Tel All-Stars just moved into the Top 10 bands around, at least. THE Top 10 of all, not just my list. Musicianship, Show, Set, Sound, Vibe, Look, Video Clips…and gems from all areas. Songs from all “crowds” I knew growing up in the 70’s. Top 40 fans, FM Rock, Low Rider, Stoners, New Wavers, Geeks…songs for everyone, from everyone. Daring songs, too. Challenging songs that not a lot of bands would attempt. People dug the video clips, too. Their placement made the show flow so great.
- Nick Jara, Bassist for Hey, That’s My Bike!
You're the tightest band I've ever seen. The execution and presentation blew me away. Thanks to you the 70's are here to stay!
- Randy Riney
It was like we were transported back in time to the 70’s last night. The K-TEL ALL-STARS gave us an amazing show that had their fans singing along to every song. Sweet’s, “Fox on the Run.” The Raspberries’ “Go All the Way." “Mama Told Me Not to Come” by Three Dog Night, and the Bay City Rollers’ “Saturday Night” were just a few of the songs these five super-talented musicians delivered, and we all sang along! Video clips of iconic 70’s movies, commercials, and TV shows were played before the show and between songs. It was a TRIP back to simpler times—my childhood! If you ever get a chance to see them, you MUST!!!
- Wendy S.
The K-Tel All Stars are not only superb musicians but they’re also MAGICIANS. I just saw them last week turn a room full of tired and work-weary 40 and 50-year-olds into a room full of singing, laughing and dancing teenagers! It was so awesome!
- Sandra K.
They are totally Awesome!
- Deborah W.
It's always fun to experience a new band, and last night was beyond anything I had anticipated. The K-Tel All-Stars made their gig debut in front of an audience who all gathered to see this band stand on it's own legs. And boy, they did not disappoint! This "Super Group" (as I will now call them) of seasoned professional and musicians, performed a stellar classic set of chart-topping hits from the 1970's, and played them even better than I remember hearing them by the original artist themselves. These songs, such as Andrew Gold's "Lonely Boy," and The Knack's "My Sharona," are songs we will never hear the likes of ever again, but they are safely in the hands of this band. Given the chance, I highly recommend that you definitely see them!
- Sal Gomez, Professional Photographer
The entire band is so freakin' talented, they sound amazing! So much fun, can't wait to see them again!!!!
- Margie L.
I can't say enough good things about this band and they knock it out of the park at every show. They are so incredibly talented and their high energy, spot on performances have the audiences on their feet, dancing and singing along to some of the greatest hits of the 70's. They take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane and it's so much fun that you never want the journey to end. And yes, I'll say it again... I just love these guys!!!
- Carolyn L.
I had an absolute blast. I danced the whole time, except for 2 or 3 songs to rest my feet. You are amazing. Look forward to seeing you again.
- Athena R.
Unbelievable! I've never heard my favorite songs played live, and yet somehow you managed to play them all. Thank you for a super evening. My wife and I loved it.
- Jack D.
A super fun show! They're amazing musicians!! I can't wait to see them again and again to dance to their awesome 70's music!!!
- Lety S.
Good day to you, Sir! I’ve got to say I don’t often get stopped in my tracks by a video posted on Facebook, but your band The K-Tel All-Stars did just that! Took me back to a time when life was simple and worry free. Sounds so much like the original radio versions that I was completely blown away!!! Thanks so much and rock on!
- Mark Knapp, Guitarist for Mr. Crowley - A Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne
I love how you embraced the 70's. You all look the part, and it's amazing how you sound exactly like the original songs.
- Cathryn H.
The K-Tel All-Stars are far out, man. They're here to save rock and roll!
