In addition to performing
jazz on recordings, in concerts and clubs, Eric Allison provides a wide
variety of music for private parties, including weddings,
corporate/institutional events, charity affairs, etc.
The WONDERLAND SWING BAND is
an exciting larger band featuring a full horn section and vocals, playing
classic selections from the Big Band Era (Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Duke
Ellington, Tommy Dorsey) and repertoire of the recent swing craze (the "Jump
Swing" of Louis Jordan, Louis Prima, Brian Setzer, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy). The
band often dresses with a 40's look: crazy neckties, suspenders, and black
For the best in sophisticated
vocals, sultry or swinging, Canadian-born
FISHER is the featured singer with the Eric Allison Band. Performing at the
Montreal Jazz Festival with her own group in 2001, she was billed in their
program as "one of the greatest female singers in the history of Canadian
Jazz." Performing for private parties, Cheryl draws on the classic repertoire
of the American popular songbook (George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Cole
Porter, Jerome Kern) and carries on the great vocal traditions of Billie
Holiday, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald.
The ERIC ALLISON DIXIELAND
BAND plays authentic
New Orleans music and Dixieland Jazz with a Mardi Gras party spirit.
With banjo, tuba, parade drums, and lots of horns, this band has the
flexibility to move about and perform in different areas of the same venue, or
even to march in the great New Orleans street band tradition. The band wears
matching vests and caps.
Upon request, in addition to
Swing, Standards, and Jazz and Blues, we can provide an even wider variety of
music including Latin, Rock, Pop, Motown and Disco. Whether background music to
create just the right atmosphere or a party band to rock the house, Eric
Allison Bands can help make yours an event to remember.
