Vested Interest, the Michael Drange quartet is a Jazz Band based in the San Gabriel Valley, just east of Los Angeles. Specializing in jazz standards and bossa nova, Vested Interest will set the tone for your event with sophistication and suavity.

Perfect for an elegant cocktail hour, we can also get your party going with up-tempo swing. Our repertoire includes music by the great American songwriters like, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and Harold Arlen as well as international writers such as Carlos Antonio Jobim. These songs, made famous by artists such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald are timelessly kept alive by new artists like Michael Buble'. Vested Interest brings these songs alive for your event in a way that recorded music just cannot.

We will play the perfect music for your occasion. Whether at a wedding reception, corporate function, private party or their weekly performance at Spirit House Lounge at the Lincoln Plaza Hotel in Monterey Park, Vested Interest will keep the audience and guests entertained. Music for dancing, dining or anything in between. We know hundreds of songs, but will be happy to learn any special songs, like the first dance. We want the music to be the least of your worries, whatever the occasion.

Led by singer and saxophonist Michael Drange, Vested Interest has been performing together since 2010 throughout Southern California. Featuring George Woo on piano, Dave Mulligan on bass and Karen Federoff on drums, Vested Interest has performed over 250 gigs together and will work with you to get just the right music for your occasion.

Looking for a larger group, our Mini Jazz Orchestra is the perfect compromise between a full Big Band and a Jazz Combo!

Vested Interest Mini Jazz Orchestra is a 6-7 piece group, adding trumpet, trombone and a female singer to the quartet. Performing favorites from the swing era (Ellington, Basie, Goodman, etc) while including bossas by Jobim, songs by Mancini and the occasional Be-bop tune by “Dizzy” Gillepie in the repertoire, Vested Interest is ready to entertain at outdoor concerts, wedding receptions and corporate or private parties.

With the addition of Bryan Lackey on trumpet, Brent Decker on trombone and female vocalist Diane Drange, the Vested Interest Mini Jazz Orchestra reminds you that “It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing.”

The professionalism and talent of the trio was great. I would definitely use their services again. They were able to accompany me on an event where I needed background musicians for my performance and the reviews were wonderful from the audience. Great Job!!

Michael was a delight. Although I was not able to attend the event, I have heard from all of the guests and all were thoroughly impressed with his song selection, professionalism and charisma. I look to booking Michael and others from Gigmasters in the future.
