Gayle Wilson Band
The Gayle Wilson Jazz Project has been together as a 6-piece band since 2008. This is one of the most versatile bands in Southern Oregon. Well-versed in jazz, this band can let their hair down with the best and play multiple sets of good ol' rock and roll, Big Band swing, blues and contemporary jazz. Plus, this is one heck-uva request band. Whether you want it smooth and laid-back or you want to rock the house, these musicians know how to deliver. Check out  "Music Testimonials and Reviews" to see what previous clients have to say.

THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK is interpreted with style! This genre of music is continually being rediscovered by new generations. The Gayle Wilson Jazz Project presents these songs with wit & energy. Famous composers of the 1920s, '30's and '40's like Duke Ellington, The Gershwins and Irving Berlin are brought to life, as well as the romantic ballads, cabaret and torch songs of great singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra. These are the songs of the modern-day phonems as well i.e. Diana Krall, Madeleine Peyroux and Michael Buble. When this dance band kicks into gear, the sounds and images of the Big Bands come to mind; Glenn Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, The Dorsey Brothers and more.
