We are one of Central Ohio's best wedding cocktail hour/ceremony groups!
We provide a professional, fun, and sophisticated atmosphere for private and public events.
Dave McMahon and Friends - ranging from solo piano to a full-sounding duo to a quintet with vocal, keyboard, bass, sax, and drums.
Our repertoire includes jazz standards, classical favorites, and pop hits for intimate venues such as wedding ceremonies, wine tastings, restaurants, banquets, fundraisers, and cocktail parties. Instrumentation: Flute, soprano, and/or tenor sax, accompanied by keyboards. Please listen to our Wedding Ceremony Samplers for a taste of what we can bring to your event! This group currently has a weekly performance for Kroger Stoneridge Gahanna's Wine Tasting every friday from 5pm-7. Please come check us out there and chat with us to see what we have to offer. Other public venues that we have performed are the Worthington Inn, Blackwell Hotel, Westin Hotel, and many Country Clubs around Columbus.
Direct Energy - horn-driven classic rock and R'n'B featuring the music of Chicago and similar groups.
Emerald City Swing Orchestra - jazz big band with a large repertoire for concerts, festivals, and ballroom dance events.
Private event details: (all groups).
We will provide all equipment necessary for our performance. All that we require is access to power. For larger events we can bring our own pa system (amplification) and depending on the event we could work out using it for announcements. We normally play up to 90 min without taking a break. For longer events we can play 50 minute sets with a 10-15 minute break. In terms of total time, we have played events up to 6 hours long. You can expect us to be dressed professionally. We strive to bring a high level of professionalism to every event.
We have some custom-arranged music for the groups with the focus of making your event memorable. We perform jazz and pop standards with our own unique touch of class and sophistication. We can also perform latin styles like bossa nova, samba, rumba, salsa, and ballroom dance styles as well. We even have blues and celtic selections available, as well as ceremony arrangements for weddings. Please let us know in advance of any special song requests. We'd be glad to oblige! Seasonal (Christmas) music is also available.
