Big Band Swing music for weddings and clean-cut events. Music from the 40's and 50's -- the fabulous Big Band era. It's the kind of music that gets your feet tapping with the jitter-bug dancing sounds. It's the kind of music that everyone feels comfortable with, young or old. It's the Don Thorpe Trio. We are seasoned and experienced musicians, and we play a wide variety of songs from old to new.
We play the Salt Lake City area, but not for night clubs or parties that get out of hand. We like it when everyone has a good time without getting drunk, high or boisterous. So if you want a good, clean-cut but cool band, we are a good choice.
The average fee for an evening is $500.

If you are in the Salt Lake City area, we are available most anytime. If required, however, the trio could travel by special arrangements.
ABOUT DON THORPE
I have been playing the drums professionally since the 70's. I've played big band Swing, combo Jazz, Rock & Roll, and Country. I've even played for Greek weddings and Octoberfest. I also played the drums a couple of years for an Elvis impersonator. I was in several U.S. army marching bands, and associated with some of the finest musicians in the country. This band is called The Don Thorpe Swing Band, and we play for weddings and social events.
