We have performed at the Miami-Date Arena (formerly American Airlines Arena) for the Miami Heat on multiple occasions and are always featured on the Fox Sports Channel. We have also performed at the Hard Rock Stadium for the Orangebowl and at the Hard Rock Live.
We are looking forward to working with you.

Our bass guitarist, Michael Washington, was the bass player for James Brown, The Temptations, Sly Stone, and The O’Jays. One of our keyboard players performed with The Guess Who, Three Dog Night, Los Lobos, and John Secada.
The Disco Show
The Miami Disco band isn't just some generic retro disco throwback-band playing the classic dance hits of the '70s and the early '80s, but it is a musical ensemble whose members are part of musical history. The Miami Disco band founded by keyboardist Paul Saca was a signed Sal Soul record label artist that scored two hits on the national disco charts. Miami Disco Band bassist, Michael Washington, was a member of the O'Jays during their run of disco hits. Miami Disco Band guitarist, Wesley B Wright was a member of the original Miami sound machine and recorded and performed all of their Latin disco hits and early American crossover hits. Why have something artificial when you can have the real deal. The Miami Disco band: A taste of musical authenticity.
Rockin in the USA
A Viva Band tribute to the Stars and Stripes of America's finest Rock music and bands.
Paul Saca's Viva Band has opened for over 80 National and International recording acts including some of the greatest heroes of the Classic Rock Era such as Bad Company, Foreigner, Cheap Trick, Kansas, and Grand Funk Railroad. Michael Washington's tenure with James Brown and Sly and the Family Stone add the bottom to Viva's deep street cred and Wesley B. Wright performances as a guitarist backing some of the iconic Rock legends on the Monsters of Rock Tour thickens the pot. Melissa, Randy, and Breezy perfect the mix. So put on a worn T shirt and an old pair of blue jeans and join The Viva Band and rock the house. Hell yeah!!!
The Summer of Love - Woodstock
A Tribute to the music of 1967
1967: It was a time of war, extreme political division, a new awareness of racial and social and injustices, and distrust of the police and government. But in the midst of all this chaos, it was music that brought people together and offered the world a brighter future. One of peace, love, and enlightenment. It would forever be known as 1967, The Summer of Love. The message those songs had ring as clear today as they did then. Let us take you on a magical trip and share that message of peace, love, and enlightenment. You won't forget it.
Standing in the Shadows of Motown: The Viva tribute to the best R&B from the '60s and ‘70s.

Featuring touring bassist Michael Washington for The Temptations, James Brown, The O'Jays, and Sly and the Family Stone and original Miami Sound Machine (Gloria Estefan) guitarist Wesley B Wright. A great tribute band is more than just talented musicians. The X Factor is authenticity which can only be achieved by those who have recorded, toured, and performed the genre at the most elite levels and on some of the largest concert venues possible. Along with the superlative musicianship of Melissa Winch, Randy Robins, and Breezy, Viva fills those pockets with the grooves only they can transcend. Let's get real and funky with Viva.
