Chris Hough’s Utah Jazz Band
Jazz, Pop, and Rock Music
The Chris Hough Band is actually two bands in one, both of which are dedicated to providing a sophisticated, smooth music experience to all audiences. Their core players include jazz guitarist Chris, drummer Christian Parry, and bassist Linke Hebrew. However, depending upon your needs, the band can create the perfect sound for your individual event by expanding to include keyboards, saxophone, and additional vocals.
As a party band, playing high-energy cover dance tunes from the past five or six decades, they call themselves the Wing Dings party band. With their huge selection of songs, they appeal to guests of all ages. The Wing Dings are a trio, but can add an optional female vocalist, keyboardist, and saxophonist.
But if it’s a jazz trio or larger jazz band that you’re after, they transition into the Chris Hough Jazz Band, playing hundreds of popular songs from many genres of music such as jazz, swing, Bossa Nova, and pop. They can perform everything from soft background, dinner, or cocktail music to entertaining dance music, making them a perfect fit for events that include dinner and a dance.
This personable group of players are always highly professional in appearance, behavior, and of course musically, and pride themselves on being sensitive to the needs of the guests.
Chris’ bands are always crowd-pleasers and know how to tailor their performances to provide the best possible entertainment experience for each event. And if you want a special song or two that they don’t already know, they’ll learn them for you.
Plus, Chris also fronts the Joe Friday classic rock band, so if you’re into classic rock music, let Joe Friday take you a trip back to the good old days, when music was rockin’.
