for 2021  

We hope all of you are hanging in there as we approach the 1.5 year mark of this *&$%! pandemic. A lot of you have been reaching out to let us know how excited you are at the prospect of getting back on the dance floor sometime in 2021 when this whole debacle is over. While I share your exuberance, I'm not sure if I share your optimism. We don't need to get into specifics, but let's just way that I am not banking on packing our regular venues anytime soon. 

We are currently booking

private events for 2021 & 2022.

Please reach out to us if you are interested in hiring Vanilla Pop, and we can discuss the new parameters and options for the 2021 season.

welcome to

vanilla pop

Winner of “Best of Albuquerque" five times, Vanilla Pop has been providing New Mexico and parts of the Southwest with the most unique corporate and private event entertainment for the past 20 years. (We are also the most awesome-est dance band you will ever see in a club.)​ ​

Consisting of Al Dente and Lester Moore, Vanilla Pop is part Vegas style lounge act, part satire and all fun.

We are an exciting and diverse performance oriented show, covering 40’s standards and disco hits as well as Eighties classics, TV themes and a few Rap numbers to tie it all together.

Vanilla Pop is one of the most sought after bands in New Mexico for corporate events, weddings, private parties and club dates.

Contact us to see how Vanilla Pop can turn your event into an evening your guests will remember long after the flowers have decomposed.
