Today, my husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary. We were fortunate to have Gator Almond and his band perform at our wedding reception. They were so great; to this day, family and friends still talk about what a wonderful time they had, and how awesome Gator and his band were. I enjoyed this feature article, and wish Gator Almond and his band much more success and love.

I played with Gator in the original Spice Of Life Band in Del Rio, Texas. He was and is a truly gifted, multi-talented entertainer. Learned alot from him that I still apply in my performing career to this day. You can see some early pictures of him on my myspace page:

Thanks so much for giving my husband and I an outlet. I was reintroduced to you and the band at Fort Monroe on the 4th and My husband LOVED you all. We couldnt wait to get to Fort Monroe on the 11th to see you again. We had sooo much fun.. We arent "clubbers" so we normally sit at the house and have the classic ol skool party. We will probably become Gator Groupies! LOL Thanks so much for putting some SPICE back in our Life! See ya August 1st at The Fort

Wow! Man this was the best time I eve had at a beach behind the Ft Monroe Club. We wer at a wedding reception inside the club and we just come out on the beach to view the area and then we heard Gator Allmond and the Spice of life Band. He was all ove the place singing to the ladies and he even made one of the teenagers happy he sung a hip hop verson of happy birthday to him and all of the guys friends just danced and cheered Gator and the band. He is one of the best. We will be back to see him again on 4th July. Gator Allmond is opening for the AWB and I am bring a bunch of family and friends. See you soon

Gator, it was nice to meet you last night. Thanks for coming out, and thanks to your colleague for bringing you out. I'm glad you enjoyed it. We have several reading bands in San Antonio. The Blue Star hosts a different jazz band each Tuesday and one on the 2nd Wed of the month. I play regularly with two of the bands. Last night I was filling in. If you're ever back in San Antonio on a Tuesday, come back out. I wish continued success to you in your music endeavors. Looks like things are going very well!

Gator and his band performed at our daughter's wedding reception at the Bayside Enlisted Club 0n Oct 10, 2009. There were well over 250 out of state family members in attendance. The # one comment from all was "this is the best reception I have ever attended". This was the most exciting time we have ever had. People were in amazement of how Gator choreagraped the reception from beginning to end. The music was OUTSTANDING. Comments were endless on the band with "Where did you find these guys". Can't wait for the video. It was over way too soon. Thank you for an over the top performance. You have two more Morgan Weddings to entertain:)

[This band was fabulous. Gator was one of the best entertainers I have ever seen at a reception. I am from the NJ/NY area, and they do it big there. However, he could perform with the best of them with no problem. He made the reception exceptional and unique. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have an event of a lifetime! He is "One In A Million".

Gator was the MC at my wedding reception and I also had one of his DJs. Everyone told me that it was the best reception they had ever been too. I have had four friends at my reception get married after me and all requested to have him do theirs. He is truly a talented man.

My mother was visiting last year and had the pleasure of hearing Gator and his band at Ft Monroe. She loved it so much she can't wait to visit to see his band this year. Gator Allmond & the Spice of Life Band are a class act!

Well, I'm a little biased since Gator is my father in law, but as a testament to his talent, EVERY friend of mine that was engaged or got engaged after having attended my wedding reception which he MC'd asked me how they could get him to MC their receptions as well. Even the single ones wanted to know just in case! We all loved it! He has a real knack for getting everyone involved and having a good time. It was wonderful. Love you :)

I have been DJ'ing since 1981, and I have never met a more professional, charismatic, entertaining DJ than Gator. I have had the pleasure of working with Gator for the past 10 years. It has been exciting, and the ride of my life! We have created some memorable moments together, and it was an extreme honor to share the stage with him. Mowtown, Countdown, the attire....we had it all. Gator is the best there is, and I will put my 29 years of experience on that :) Keep it up Gator.
P.S. Thanks for everything Gator!!!

I was fortunate to hear Gator Allmond and The Spice of Life Band at an event at Fort Monroe. It had been a long time since I was entertained to that degree. Also, Gator entertained at our Christmas Party and we have not had a Christmas Party like that since 2007. Gator Allmond is truly a great entertainer.

Gator Allmond is the man. I have known Gator for years and he still gets better all the time over the years. I was trying to decide last year if I was going to have a 50th birthday party celebration and I went to Gator and said I am thinking about having a birthday party and would you be my Deejay for my party and Gator said yes. Gator was awesome and my guests are still buzzing about Gator and my party. They are ready for me to have another birthday with Gator. People are always asking me how do you get Gator so quickly for your party, I said to them because I booked Gator a year in advance. Gator is the best and where ever he performances you will always get the best music and entertainment in Virginia. There is only one Gator, and no one get duplicate him and his talent. Gator keep on doing your thing.

I know Gator too many years to count .... I have never met a most talented entertainer in all my years dealing with the entertainment industry, he is passionate about what he does and he his very gifted. Along with his fine personality and good humor, he is the best! I am blessed for counting him as apersonal friend~!

Gator Allmond is truly the BEST in Hampton Roads. He Rocks. Keep on keeping on Gator Man. Maybe one day we will see you on the big stage with all the big time bands. Just keep on doing what your are doing Gator and one day a promoter from Hollywood will knock on your door. Gator you are awesome and good luck on your success.
