The 16 Piece Happiness Big Band

The HAPPINESS BIG Band is composed of some of the very best musicians in California. Many of them played extensively with big names like Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and you name it. Here you get that authentic big band sound from the golden era of swing that really can’t be produced by a small band.

We have: 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 3 trombone, Piano, Bass, Drums, Percussionist.

This band is so much fun for the audience and for the band I wish we worked every night of the week! The great Dave Berges is our singer in this video but we have lady vocalists available, also. We also do a big selection of Latin big band charts on request.

The Happiness Gala Band

We call this combo THE HAPPINESS GALA BAND because we seem to get hired for a lot of gala fundraisers and grand openings. But we also play weddings and other classy events.

This band is extremely versatile and can do anything from Roaring 20’s Gatsby events to a full evening of current rock/pop hits---or both---or anything in between!

Speaking of classy, our vocalist is Victoria Summer, who is a bona fide Hollywood starlet. See to see her impressive acting career.

First Four Hours

The Happiness Swing Band backed up Vegas' premier Dean Martin tribute singer, Andy DiMino, at the 50th Annual Lions Club Watermelon Festival in Sunland, CA. When Andy was on stage, he really became Deano. It was amazing!
