B i g   B a n d  &  S w i n g  4

Nostalgic but offering something new, this Band is reminiscent of an era’s swanky style that preceded most of our births. The lead singer adds a modern panache to the musical compositions that brought America through the ‘30s, ‘40s, ‘50s and ‘60s. He croons and delivers jazz standards with the distinctive swagger found in Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Billie Holiday.

The band is the #1 Southern California-based Jazz band specializing in popular Jazz Standards of the 30’s, 40's, 50's and 60's. Known for the lead singer’s classic Jazz style and engaging stage presence, he reaches the audience with an attitude and style that garners attention both during and between songs.

Big Band & Swing 4

The lead singer packs a powerful performance, gets the crowd involved, and carries you back to another era. His energy and interaction with the audience must be seen to be believed. With never ending energy, he is often found singing on the dance floor or dancing with the ladies in the audience.

The band transitions between swingin' numbers and melancholy ballads that capture the attention of the entire room with straight-ahead good stuff that takes you back to a time when live music was imperative; hats were checked, ladies were respected and having a blast was the norm. Collectively, his musical troupe employs musicians who have played around the world for some of the most renowned groups in musical history. Bring your dancin' shoes and a handkerchief; you'll need them both.

The band presents classic vocal Jazz standards in the style of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Harry Connick Jr. and others from our “American Songbook”. We’re even making new “Standards.” Previously they have performed Rat Pack Revues, weddings (including the ceremonial music!), engagement parties, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, casino parties, casinos and even Parades. In fact, if you can’t think of a reason to have a party, call him, he’ll think of one for you!

Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the lead singer was raised in a talented family, rich with musical tradition. He has been singing, entertaining and playing harmonica since the age of six. His interest and familiarity of Rhythm & Blues and classical Jazz accompanied him around the world through a ten-year tour of duty in the United States Marine Corps. During that time he formed his 11-member big band. Soon after leaving the Marines to pursue a career in music, he formed his Quintet. Since then he has seen impressive success. His band plays almost every night of the week at Jazz venues around the country.

The Band features music from the golden age, songs performed by such great vocalists as Frank Sinatra, Billie Holiday, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Louis Prima, Mel Torme, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Bobby Darin and more!

As you know, many of these famous and popular musicians did not write all of the songs that they made famous. Some of our favorite composers include: Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Sammy Cahn & Jimmy Van Heusen, George & Ira Gershwin, Lerner & Lowe, Leigh & Coleman, Myrow & Gordon, Lawrence & Altman, Stephen Sondheim, Hoagy Carmichael and other greats from the “American Songbook.”
