As a Corporate Event, Special Event and Wedding Reception Band, ECB burst onto the Dallas music scene in the summer of 1983. Emerald City electrifies audiences with a repertoire encompassing the last 50 years of popular music, as well as playing the most current songs on the radio with a mix of their original music.

Emerald City Band has performed for President and Mrs. Bush at The White House, and numerous fortune 500 companies including MCI, Ford Motor Company, Southwest Airlines and American Airlines. As Wedding Musicians, ECB has been featured at many high profile weddings for clients such as Emmitt Smith, Mark Cuban and Angie Harmon.

Averaging more than 300 performances a year, The Dallas Morning News voted Emerald City as Dallas’ Best Band. Their ability to entertain is rivaled only by their extensive ability to get the audience up on the dance floor.

The collective energy of this 14 piece, 4-horn section group has flown all over the country from New York to Los Angeles, and internationally from Bermuda to Europe. At each engagement they take their audience to an even higher level in entertainment.
