Anniversary PartyReviewed on June 9, 2018From Akron, OH

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

Casino EventReviewed on September 15, 2012From Erie, PA

Perfection to the max....we couldn't have asked for anyone better. Very easy to work with, totally professional and the guests loved them. I have not seen as many people get up and dance in years!!!

Awards Night PartyReviewed on February 15, 2012From Sandusky, OH

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!
