Dan Gabel has the finest Big Band anywhere. His orchestra is the best that we have heard since my wife and I danced to Tommy Dorsey in 1942.

This was my first time experiencing this style of music live.  I truly enjoyed this concert and look forward to seeing them in the future! Just bought the album and am definitely a fan now!

-Pricilla, Stoughton, MA 

What a great night…the instrumentals were fantastic, as were all the vocals. I loved the sing-along… I finally purchased a couple CDs and can’t wait for the next production!
