TOMCATZ-BAND is Tampa Bay's premier jazz / pop / dance band. We have a classy, yet edgy sophisticated sound that can best be described as: retro, hip, hot jive, high energy swing jazz. Our big-band format is packaged into an affordable (9) piece, self-contained unit. Our music has the beat, energy and enthusiasm of rock 'n' roll with the fun and rhythm of big band swing all rolled into one.

TOMCATZ-BAND's song list is made up of classy tunes by todays best swing artists - Harry Connick Jr, Michael Buble and Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. In addition, the pop-swing sounds of the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Ray Charles, Bobby Darin & The Cherry Poppin' Daddies are also part of our repertoire. As well, we perform jazz tunes by Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich and Clifford Brown.

We call our music "Neo-Swing, but in the 1920's, it was often called 'Gangster Bop'

TOMCATZ-BAND consists of:

Rhythm section: Guitar/Bass/Piano/Drums.
Horn section: (2) Trumpets/Trombone & Alto/Tenor saxophones.
In addition, there several vocalists within the band. Each brings their own style, strength and interpretation to the songs.
Upon occasion, we will also have guest artists accompany us.

* TOMCATZ-BAND can also provide a "cocktail/dinner set" of music to be played before our regular show begins - which is ideal for weddings.
* TOMCATZ-BAND can perform a (45) minute Christmas show at your holiday event.

The variety of entertainers that the various Tomcatz-Band members have performed with resembles 'who's who' in the music field. Included on that list is:
Tony Bennett, Stan Gets, Jay Corre, Cab Calloway, Sammy Davis, Tony Aiello, Earl "Fatha" Hines, Herb Ellis, Benny Carter and Tommy Dorsey.
In addition, our band members have performed with or backed up:
Elvis Presley, Natalie Cole, The Coasters, Gato Barbieri, Nestor Torrez, The Spinners, The Temptations and the Fifth Dimension.

Many of our members have attended some very fine music schools around the country, including The University of Miami, Florida International University, FSU, Western Michigan University, University of Buffalo, Lowell State College and Cortland State University, to name a few.

Our large book of music enables us to perform in a variety of settings - as a dance/wedding band, special event showcase, or jazz concert. We have the sound and experience to make whatever your musical requirements to be, a memorable event.

This group was amazing! We were hosting a 1920's Prohibition Party and they were perfect! Arrived early, were set up, dressed for the event and ready to go! I think they are an amazing bargain - would definitely recommend!
