The best swing tunes, Classic Rock, Latin dance favourites like "Despacito", and current Top 40 dance material all over the map. Something for everyone!

This classy little band sounds bigger than it is has to do with a musical juggling act: Chance plays piano and sings, in addition to left-hand bass on the keyboard. Sounds like 5 performers. And yes, we LOVE requests, just ask.
