There's a reason The Touch was chosen by Modern Bride Magazine as one of the top 150 best wedding bands in the country.

There quite simply is no other band like The Touch. Though widely regarded as the most popular cover band in the tri-state area for over 30 years, they show no signs of relinquishing their firm grip on the top spot. Long known for their musical and vocal precision, The Touch continues to draw loyal fans that appreciate the band's perfectionistic approach to their craft. Their versions of the latest contemporary, alternative and dance music have made them the champions of the tri-state, live music scene. The Touch covers a wide variety of music ranging from the 40's through the most current material of 2014! The Touch is fronted by vocalist Jeff Herbst, who emulates the original artists, even duplicating female vocalists with uncanny ability. People turn their heads on the dance floor and can't believe that Jeff is actually singing. With an array of synthesizers, Bob Zanfardino on keyboards is his own orchestra and is often referred to as the "human sequencer." He's amazing. Chris Tibaldi on drums is the band's rock solid foundation. Chris' flexibility allows him to master any beat. On bass guitar is Mike Maisano, who excels in all styles of music. Chris Jusino is terrific on guitar and lead vocals. This line up has enabled The Touch to establish a reputation built on performing near-perfect renditions of songs from many styles and eras. The many receptions and corporate events at which they have performed include: The 2004 Republican National Convention in NYC, The Metropolitan Breast Cancer Benefits at The Central Park Boathouse, The Childrens Aid Society benefit, The New York Athletic Club in NYC, the 2005 Inaugural gala for the NY delegates in Washington DC, and Rachel Rays Burger Bash from 2008 through 2011. Longevity, durability and virtuosity. That is The Touch!
