My husband and I recently hosted a gathering of neighbors in our backyard with musical entertainment provided by Gayle Wilson and George Rubaloff. What a magical evening! Gayle and George are talented, creative and engaging. And it's obvious how much they love music and entertaining. With their harmonious voices and two slightly unique instruments, they took us on a lively musical journey around the globe and back in time. The spell they cast is due in part to the enticing mixture of songs they perform. Everyone loved their interpretation of the familiar songs from the '20's, '30's and '40's. But equally enjoyable were the quirky, clever tunes previously unknown to the audience, and the foreign tunes that transported us from Backyard, USA to a sidewalk café in France, a fountain in an Italian piazza or an outlaw hideaway in the mountains of old Mexico.
"We arranged a gathering of relatives and friends this summer to celebrate our mother's birthday. We hired a caterer for the event of 25 people and we also hired The Gayle Wilson Trio. They arrived early and stayed longer than expected. We had requested tunes from the 1940's and 1950's and they provided just that along with any requests from those who wished specific songs be played. She has a three-piece band and their music is absolutely wonderful and their harmony is awesome. Gayle is an extremely professional performer and singer, beyond our expectations. All of our guests and ourselves would highly recommend her band for any event where folks might want high quality musical entertainment.

"Gayle Wilson’s Dance Band is the best! Her band has been playing for the Rogue Valley Manor Dinner Dances for the past 7 years and we would not trade bands for anything. The band plays such danceable music that’s enhanced by Gayle’s beautiful voice. The variety of music is amazing, the big band sound, rock & roll, swing, tango and many others. They will take requests and if they are not familiar with the request, will learn it and play it next time. As Gayle says, “we aim to please”. Gayle is so easy to work with and I have nothing but praise for her and her band. They are all excellent musicians.”

"What a blast to take in this amazing review of the Blues Divas of the 1920's! I was spellbound by the energy, savvy, sexiness and humor of these women -- both the '20s women AND Jade and Gayle today as they alternately sang sweetly about love and then would belt out songs of lust and love, so funny, rich and good!!! This era was a huge, historic turning point in music, the first time women composed and cut their own records and sang them to black and white audiences, with white listeners barely prepared to be set back on their heels in amazement. This was the sound track to a crazy decade, similar to the Sixties, when the whole country emerged from boring decades of good behavior and went wild with the delights of life."
"We wanted to treat our family to something special at our recent Family Reunion and filled the bill with Gayle & her Band. It's almost two months later and they are still talking about how much fun they had and how much they enjoyed the music and entertainment. The Band fit right in like they were part of the family! We are so glad they are a part of our memories."
asked the "The Gayle Wilson Band" to come perform for a group of
Shriners in a scenic outdoor area in Fort Klamath Oregon in summer, 2015, and
was wonderfully surprised at how well they played to the crowd. These
Shriners had a wide variety of music tastes and the band successful found the
music niche that appealed to everyone. Gayle has a wonderful
personality and beautiful voice. She can play a wide variety of music and
entertain most any group of listeners. I highly recommend The Gayle
Wilson Band to anyone wanting a high quality performance and
entertainment at group functions."

"Gayle, you just knock me out! The way you front the band, your
connection to the audience, how you treat the material, your preparation, your
style and grace, your confidence... Masterful! Some people are born with talent
but it's the people that do the footwork and present that talent with
precision, maximizing all aspects of the material and energizing the artists
around them, presenting to the audience not just a well rehearsed show, but a
gift. I'm truly inspired. Thanks."
“The Gayle Wilson Band is fantastic. I
always wanted a live band at my wedding and they exceeded my expectations.
They rocked the stage! All my guests were very impressed and commented on
how entertaining they were. Gayle accommodated my specific song
requests and kept the dance floor hopping with the classics, swing, line
dancing and good ol' rock'n roll! If you want to have a good
dance party, Gayle's band is the best!”
"Hello, Good Morning and Congratulations Gayle.
