When the head of neurology at Craig Hospital needed the perfect entertainment for his wedding, he hired Tony Bennett. He then decided that the perfect compliment to this extraordinary entertainer and the most perfect entertainment for dinner and dancing was Peter Yellen and his band "Dressed in Black".
The biannual “Wines for Life” cancer fundraising gala called on Peter and the band to share the stage with Billy Crystal in 1998 and again with Michael Bolton in 2000 to raise record breaking contributions for this very worthy cause.
The music for dinner and dancing provided by Peter and his band was the added magic needed when he performed with Lou Rawls at the “National Jewish Hospital Gala” in 1999.
At countless weddings and innumerable social gatherings, as well as corporate events and conventions… from a small gathering where the music needs to be intimate or a gala of grand proportions, Peter Yellen and “Dressed in Black” is consistently among the most sought after acts in the area.
The Song List
The band’s performances regularly feature an extremely wide range of delightful songs from the nostalgic to today’s most cutting edge favorites.
At most events, Peter and his band provide the classiest of listening music designed to be the perfect compliment to dining and conversation, as well as dance music that will cause the kind of excitement your guests will be talking about long after the last strains of music are echoed into the night.
The Physical Description of the Band
Most often an 8 piece band featuring Peter as the band’s lead male vocalist and emcee, their female vocalist, two piece horn section (sax and trumpet) and four piece rhythm section (keyboard, guitar, bass and drums).
In some instances, it is possible to hire a smaller version of the band… call for availability and pricing.
