Dance Band

Featuring the rhythm section, key horn players, and sometimes violin too from the larger Dance Orchestra, the Palace Avenue Dance band takes it inspiration from the small groups of the 1930-50s such as the Count Basie Octet, Billie Holiday/Teddy Wilson, Benny Goodman and Artie Shaw small combos.

These bands were distilled down from their respective Big Bands to a rhythm section and a mixed group of powerful horns out front. Featuring the wonderful Cherise on vocals, the Dance Band is guaranteed to fill a dance floor and swing out in style.
