Join the Dalton Gang at their annual pre-Thanksgiving Bash at Trumpets! Reservations highly recommended.
The Dalton Gang is a ten piece band led by guitarist, arranger and composer Willy Dalton. The band mixes jazz with a blend of funk and latin music.
The members are freelance musicians around the New York area. Among their credits are recordings and performances with such artists as Buddy Rich, Machito, Lionel Hampton, Tito Puente, Daniel Ponce, Cissy Houston, and others.
The Dalton Gang is a real “group,” not a band of musicians brought together for a special project. They performed for the first time in 1979 . They have performed over 100 original charts in the past 35 years.
The band members are: Vinnie Cutro— trumpet, Mark Friedman–alto sax and flute, Frank Elmo–tenor sax and flute,Dan Nigro— baritone sax, Conrad Zulauf— trombone, Frank Valdes–percussion, Mike DiLorenzo–piano, John Hughes–bass, Alessio Marc Cupo–drums, and Willy Dalton–guitar.
“The Dalton Gang is really a labor of love,” says bandleader Willy Dalton. “The dedication and commitment of the musicians is what keeps the band alive. When I write for the band, I try to draw on the mix of sounds that we play as working musicians in the New York area–jazz, funk, latin, big band, etc. Putting this all in one package and making the music challenging to play is what I’m aiming for.”
2 sets: 8:00 p.m. & 10:00 p.m.

One of Trumpets’ favorite performers
Audiences love Mel Davis’ playing! R & B, Jazz & Contemporary! Come out and listen to one of the finest organists and entertainers around! R & B, jazz, blues, pop.. . Mel is one of our favorite artists. You may have heard him here before, but if you haven’t, stop by. You will love Mel whether you like traditional or contemporary jazz. He does it all! Scroll down to listen to one of his tunes.
Melvin Davis, recording artist, vocalist, keyboard player and organist extraordinaire, has understood the power of his hands to transport the sound of instruments from his imagination to a concert hall or nightclub full of eager twitching bodies for all of his life, dating back to childhood. This was when Melvin?s ears, residing in the multi-cultural city of Paterson, NJ, just 20 miles west of New York, dined on the sounds of musical greats like Dizzy Gillespie, Peggy Lee, John Coltrane, Jimmy McGriff, Alvin Valentine and so many more. He played his first piano recital at 9, and at 15, when cats his age were learning how to charm young ladies, Davis was sneaking into local night clubs, hoping to charm the Hammond B3.
The Hammond’s big band grooves, thanks to masters and club mentors such as George Benson, Larry Young, Jr., Brother Jack McDuff, Jimmy McGriff and Dr. Lonnie Smith, worked their way into Davis DNA. Eventually his hands were walking and talking good music. But 24 years ago, Davis lost the ability to play with his hands. Caught in the motorized belt of a fast-moving container-making machine where he worked to supplement his music income, a finger was ripped from his left hand, which was also split diagonally.
