About
The Dave Banks Big Band- This powerhouse 17 piece big band is
based out of Akron, Ohio and is led by Ohio native and 20 year Las Vegas
veteran trumpet artist, Dave Banks. The band boasts of having the top musicians in the Northeast Ohio area. Dave fronts the band with his soaring trumpet and also shares the stage with some of the finest vocal talent around. They specialize in the ability to do several themed shows including "The Tribute To Frank Sinatra" show featuring Michael Sonata, "Big Band on Broadway" with Shannon Eller and Paul Hoffman, and "The Rockin' Big Band Show" with Peggy Coyle and John Morton as well as "Tribute To The King," an Elvis Tribute Show. They have backed several "Rat Pack" shows in major venues as well. This band will definitely make your event sparkle. Their repertoire ranges from original compositions to contemporary pop songs to standard big band favorites.
The music from many current top exciting arrangers is featured. They have played to large houses at the Cleveland Bop Stop, Cleveland Playhouse Square, Carousel Dinner Theatre, and The Tangier Ballroom. They will travel the United States, Canada and Europe and are available for Cruise Ship bookings, casinos and Las Vegas Showrooms. They can do wedding receptions, anniversaries, public concerts and will leave your audience begging for more!

I highly recommend the Dave Banks Big Band! I chose them after I had attended a performance to see how well they played. Price is reasonable and have a HUGE band. A bigger area/venue is recommended because of how loud it can be but we were HIGHLY satisfied even though my event was a smaller area. I would book them again. Thank you Dave, for making my parents surprise party perfect. - Nik

Our company could not possibly be happier with the Dave Banks Big Band. They arrived on-time, were ready to start, had obvioulsy prepared heavily and were above-all-else EXCEPTIONALLY TALENTED. Dave has put together a group of musicians that I would hire on an individual basis if needed without question. When you put them all together they are truly one fantastic band. We were looking for a way to bring up the level of our previous awards shows and DBBB gave us exactly what we were looking for! If you need a band that you know without question will do you right and entertain you at the same time... I suggest that you hire the Dave Banks Big Band!
