They quickly assembled a top notch, hard-hitting horn section: Steve Ebner (trumpet), April West (trombone), David Jackson (tenor sax), JP Balmat (baritone & alto sax, clarinet) and Wayne Rice (sousaphone). Euphoria Brass Band is proud to have been nominated five years in a row for various San Diego Music Awards since their inception in 2011!

Euphoria Brass Band always leaves them wanting more!

Slower: Artist Feature

If you’re looking for a unique cover band for your next event, Slower just might be the band for you. This 4-piece band features an upright bass and full percussion section along with guitars and keys, but what really sets them apart is their appearance and energy on stage. The band’s vocalist, Dominic Moscatello, sports a signature Mohawk on top of a suit and tie, and their presence on stage can only be described as exuberant.

Jaime Valle: Artist Feature

Jaime Valle: Artist Feature

This artist feature we wanted to share someone unique and different with their approach. Lyrically-gifted veteran guitarist/composer/band leader Jaime Valle has refused to allow his growing success of the last several years slow him down. Versatile is a term that captures Jaime Valle’s professional outlook. He carves out a ferocious weekly schedule, playing Latin jazz and straight- ahead jazz. He books several local clubs. And he writes music for movies and for commercials. “Those are jingles,” he notes, “some people call them that, or worse, but the trick is to make these little tunes rise to the level of listenable songs that hook you.” He chuckles when he says these words. Valle is a musician whose infectious good taste and well- acknowledged sense of humor on stage attract new admirers to his ever- expanding fan base.
