A Frank Sinatra Celebration

Summer Wind is a specialty band focused on that classic Sinatra sound. It's the perfect compliment to upscale events where a classy, sophisticated sound of vintage Sinatra will impart an atmosphere like no other.

Summer Wind's repertoire showcases the great jazz standards from the 30's through the 60's made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Harry Connick, Jr., Michael Buble, and many other monumental singers. The smooth vocal stylings of Dave Scott provide the voice for Summer Wind. The band also features saxophonist Bill Shreeve who is strongly influenced by the cool west coast sound of Paul Desmond and Stan Getz. Summer Wind is rounded out with piano, upright string bass, and drums. Let Summer Wind take you back to a time when smooth was cool, swing was king, and when live jazz, America's greatest contribution to the performing arts, brought sophistication to the night life.

Thanks to a high level of musicianship in the band and a comprehensive book of material, the band can be configured to match any budget and any venue. A smaller group can be used in intimate cocktail settings or a larger band can accomodate a showcase venue.

Its all about the sound. A great band with a terrible sound system sounds like a terrible band. A top quality audio experience is what a band is all about. Bill Shreeve Music Productions has taken great pains and spared no expense to create state-of-the-art sound for groups of 20 to 2,000! We bring Mackie CR-1604-VLZ and Allen and Heath Mixwizard 16 channel mixers, (2) Crown K-2 (2,500 watt stereo power amps), Klipsch and JBL speakers (up to 8 15-inch main speakers for larger jobs), and Klipsch 18" hi powered subwoofers bi-amped with active crossovers. The system delivers clean transparent and extremely accurate sound reproduction from small venues at low volume to large outdoor events at concert volume levels. A compact disk player maintains the musical ambiance during band breaks. A wireless microphone is available for announcements and Bill Shreeve will MC your event at no extra charge.

Lighting System includes:
• 2,400 watts lighting power
• 16 different lighting scenes
• eight professional par cans with colored gels
• audio controlled or free run progressive chase
• fade or quick change to different scenes or to black out
• system requires only a single 20 amp circuit
• attractive professional appearance.

When the lights go down for dinning and dancing, even a live band loses most or all of its visual appeal without proper stage lighting. However, an exciting light show will create a deeper and more lasting impression of the musical experience for the audience. Professional stage lighting is affordable! Now Aire Play not only sounds great, it's visual presentation is significantly enhanced with professional stage lighting.
