Emerald City Band

Emerald City burst onto the Dallas music scene in 1983 and never looked back. Motion, movement, and energy are three words that best describe this 13 piece, three horn section super group that electrifies every audience with a combination of high-energy dance songs from the past with the hits of today. Emerald City Band has performed for President and Mrs. Bush at the White House twice, Ford Motor Company, Southwest Airlines, Microsoft, Super Bowl XLV, Apple and American Airlines to name a few.

Averaging more than 300 performances a year, The Dallas Morning News, D Magazine, Knot Magazine, and AACWP voted Emerald City as “Entertainers of the Year” and they’ve been nominated for the prestigious National Spotlight Award in Las Vegas. Emerald City has shared the stage with such artists as Martina McBride, Michael McDonald, Huey Lewis and the News, Justin Timberlake, Garth Brooks, Mariah Carey, Dan Aykroyd, Sinbad, and the list goes on and on.

Emerald City’s ability to entertain is only rivaled by their extensive ability to get the audience up on the dance floor. This super group has taken their energy all over the world, from Dallas to New York, Paris, Dublin, Los Angeles and South America. At every performance the band takes the audience to a higher level in entertainment.
