Gabel Music

Bands, Lectures, Lessons, vintage-style swing and hot jazz groups - Entertainment for all occasions serving New England and beyond.

Gabel Music is the company that represents bandleader, trombonist, arranger, and educator Dan Gabel. Our bands represent the finest ensembles in New England, from a duo up to an authentic 18-piece Big Band. We have had the honor to play for all types of audiences, from Governors to retirement communities, with equal acclaim.

Dan Gabel is an in-demand bandleader and free-lance trombonist. His arrangements have been featured by top-notch ensembles across the country, from the World Famous Glenn Miller Orchestra, The Cab Calloway Orchestra, to the Torrington Symphony Orchestra, to the Jolly Kopperschmidts German Band.

Gabel has lectured on topics including Jazz History, the Great American Songbook, New England musicians, and the relationship of music and dancing from Elementary Schools to Universities including MIT, New England Conservatory, Clark University, and more.

So come in, take off your top hat and bow tie, and see what Dan Gabel and Gabel Music can do for you!
