A 12 Member Band, Featuring a 6-Piece Horn Section
Love the sound of brass and woodwinds?Phantazmagoria is a 12 member band with a 6-piece horn section that delivers all the great sounds of Big Band, Jazz Standards, Swing, 1960’s, Classic Rock, Motown and Soul, Funk, Blues, 1950’s and more!
You’ll hear songs made famous by Wilson Pickett, Duke Ellington, James Brown, Count Basie, Otis Redding, The Black Crowes, The Staple Singers, B.B. King, Elvis Presley, The Blues Brothers….just to name a few.
Included is a separate sound engineer to make sure everything sounds smooth from start to finish. Phantazmagoria is experienced in playing instrumental background listening music at the beginning stages of your event(or you can choose to hire solo piano, duo or small ensemble) and then is able to turn up the heat for dancing later on.
“Twelve men strong………a who’s who of veteran local musicians, from Christian Koppenhafer ($oul Purpose, Pop Cult Kids) and saxophonist Sandon Mayhew to keyboardist Ken Harris (Hoochie Coochie Men). This four song EP erupts with a horn-powered party blast, then shakes its rump through funk, soul, R+B, and blues. Close your eyes: All you see is a packed dance floor.”
