The Jay Harrison Dance Band and Big Band present the wide variety of musical material necessary for today's successful function.  Jay Harrison and Luisa D'Abramo sing the Greatest Hits of Rock n' Roll, Pop, Jive, Soul, Motown, Swing and Rhythm and Blues.  

Tunes by such artists as Elton John, Elvis Presley, Shania Twain, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Cheryl Crow, Billy Joel, Santana, Bonnie Raitt, Michael Bolton,  Whitney Houston,  Jerry Lee Lewis, Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin are expertly covered.

The Swing Classics of Glen Miller, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, as well as popular selections by Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole and Harry Connick are tastefully presented by Professional Entertainer, Jay Harrison.

The Polka, Cha Cha, Samba, Tango, Mambo and Specialty Music are also available on request.

  The additional horns in the Big Band allow for the authentic reproduction of Swing Era Classics.  

The Jay Harrison Band's set-up is visually impressive, with gold "1940's-style" music stands and attractive multi-coloured stage lighting.  The dance floor itself is illuminated with a kaleidoscopic light show that is programmed to react to the rhythm of the music.  Complimentary recorded dance mixes are also offered during the band's short intermissions.

Jay Harrison's state-of-the-art sound system provides for clear and audible sound with a volume level suited to your personal taste.  This system is available for speeches throughout the evening.  Jay is also available to assist as a Master of Ceremonies if required.

"...We couldn't ask for anything more.  We couldn't stop the party then - everyone was having such a good time.  We received endless comments from our guests on how great the music was.  A live performance is sure the way to go, but mostly it was your showmanship, professionalism and great music that stood out.  It was classy.  You brought romance back to many couples that night, especially us..."  Michael and Candess Remo (Wedding - Fort Garry Hotel - Nov 2002)


"...Everyone was extremely pleased with the music and the professionalism of the band.  We would definitely consider using Jay Harrison's bands for future functions..."  Cathy Johnston (Navy League of Canada - Greenwood Inn - Jan 2001)
