    About EBS 

    Since 2006 The Emergency Broadcast System has whipped New England party crowds for all occasions into a frenzy with over 80 high energy performances a year featuring a unique mix of current to classic tunes from Stevie Wonder to Guns & Roses to Lady Gaga performed with all the showmanship and skill you’d expect from their extensive resumes. Singer/ guitarist Fil Pacino and guitarist Dan Bernal have packed clubs since the mid 90’s when their band Canine rose to top billing on the New England circuit. They toured extensively shooting up national radio charts and opening for the likes of Bad Company, David Lee Roth and Fishbone earning a Boston Music Awards nomination for Best Live Act. Pacino and Bernal have each written music featured on network and cable television including ABC, Nickelodion, MTV, Cinemax and others. Bassist Mike Marvuglio brings high def to the low end as EBS Bassist. Keeping party-goers in rhythm is drummer Michael Cafasso whose work with industry giants like Mike Mangini (Extreme, Steve Vai, Dream Theater) and Rod Morgenstei(The Dregs, Steve Morse,Winger) launched him into a long career with successful original and cover bands while recording for artists including Joe Perry(Aerosmith) and James Montgomery and sharing the stage with members of Boston and Sammy Hagar’s band. For a true rock n’ roll experience activate The Emergency Broadcast System.

    Meagan Fitzgerald, Big Night Entertainment, Boston, MA
    "The guys were great! They were very easy to work with and put on a great show. I will be sure to recommend them."

    Mark Bloomstein, Boston Party Makers, Boston, MA

    The Phoenix House, Sunday River, ME
    "Boston's Best Cover Band".

    Adam Geringer-Dunn, Talent Buyer, Colby College, ME
    "The Emergency Broadcast System was great to work with and put on one hell of a show. EBS was everything we were looking for in a party band and more! They were true performers at our event and rocked about 500 college students all night. At 1:30am the crowd was still yelling for more! I’d highly recommend EBS to anyone looking for a band that can play all the hits, and perform each song like rock stars.".


    Wedding Testimonials

    Capuzziello/Collins Wedding, June 2012 

    "You guys absolutely rocked it for our wedding! We could not have been more pleased.Your acoustic music was superb for our ceremony and we got a ton of compliments on it!From the ceremony music, to queuing up the specific songs and playlists, to your live cover jams - you totally nailed it and EBS far exceeded our expectations!

    Our guests did not want the party to stop and we could have had you play all night! Thank you for being so flexible and easy to work with during the whole process - hope we weren't too much of a pain!



    Schwartz/Olsen Wedding, December 2010 
    "I just wanted to drop you a note and thank you and Munk and the rest of EBS for everything you did for us. Without fail, every time we talk about our wedding to each other or our guests, no one can stop raving about the music. You guys literally brought me to tears during the ceremony. (And again both times I watched the wedding video.) The personality you added to the songs we chose left me speechless and so, so happy.

    Thanks again for putting up with us for the past few months and for literally making our day even better than we imagined."
