Veteran jazz guitarist/vocalist Doc Dosco will bring a warm and intimate performance to your wedding, party, wine tasting or supper club. Doc Dosco sings in the style of Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole - uptempo swing, romantic ballads and easy listening jazz. Doc also has vocal arrangements of greats from other music genres from Elvis to the Beatles to Willie Nelson.

Although Doc Dosco specializes in jazz and standards, he also has music for guests of all ages and types, sets of blues, rockabilly, R&B, oldies and even country for those who want a change of pace. Doc says "I am known as a jazz guitarist, with a large repertoire of jazz/standards and bossa novas, but I have more than 40 years worth of other kinds of material I can pull out when requested."

Doc plays as a single (instumental solo guitar or guitar with vocals) a duo with upright bass, and has his trio with drums. Horns and keys can be added for a big band sound. Doc plays and sings jazz, standards, romantic ballads and many other styles if requested and is great for weddings, wedding ceremonies, cocktails, dinners, or for a reception or party. In a supper club or night spot, Doc is perfect with his vast list of vocal standard and popular songs.

Besides private events and club dates, Doc is a wine tasting specialist. Doc Dosco played solo jazz guitar w/vocals providing the entertainment for wine tasting grand opening events for Total Wine in dozens and dozens of locations in Southern California, Arizona and Neveda for many years. "I go well with red wine" says Doc! In addition, as RomaticJazz.Net suggests, Doc has an evening's worth of soft romantic songs. Music for lovers, for weddngs, anniversaries, or for romantic and intimate candle light supper clubs. Timeless standards and love songs that will warm the heart.

Testimonials for Doc and his trio:

The following testimonial was received from Steve Buccellato of Los Angeles:

		"Our experience with Doc Dosco is a true Internet success story!  My
		wife and I wanted a jazz trio to perform at our wedding, but we had no
		idea how to find the right band.  After an exhaustive search on the
		Internet, I found Doc's website which included some audio samples I
		enjoyed. After a quick email, we arranged to come down and watch one of
		their gigs and we liked what we heard."
		"In between sets, Doc played us some samples and we quickly decided on a
		simple, accoustic guitar for the ceremony and the whole trio to play at
		the reception during cocktails. The event took place at the Jonathan
		Club in downtown Los Angeles and went off without a hitch."
		"Doc Dosco and his band added greatly to the classy setting and warm
		mood.  We don't plan to get married again, but if we ever need a jazz
		trio in the future, we'll be calling Doc!  Thanks Doc, for helping to
		make our special night so special!"

The following testimonial was received from Misty Gibbs of Santa Barbara:

				"Hi Doc!"
		"I really appreciate you and your band members making the drive to Santa
		Barbara to play. EVERYONE loved you guys!"
		"Here is a testimonial - The Doc Dosco Trio is a 'must have' for your
		next party! I threw a small, intimate birthday party for my husband's
		40th and everyone loved the band! They did a great job of knowing when
		to play mellow sets and when to crank things up! Equally important, they
		showed up on time and were extremely nice. You can tell they love to jam
		together and really cared about making the party a success."
		"Thank you for making this a special night!"
		-- Misty Gibbs
		 Santa Barbara, CA

The following testimonial was received from Andreas Olavarria of Los Angeles:

				"Thanks again Doc."
		"You and the guys did a great job!!  Here's my testimonial:"
		"We recently hired Doc and his trio to play at my wife's birthday
		cocktail party at our home and we could not have been happier with their
		performance.  They played a perfect mix of upbeat jazz, swinging
		standards and bossa nova, creating a classy musical backdrop for the
		evening.  Every single one of our guests complimented the trio for
		their musical stylings and remarked that the addition of the live group
		really made the night special and memorable.  I very highly recommend
		Doc and his trio for any event."
		-- A. Olavarria 
		Los Angeles, CA

The following testimonial was received from Helen Shelton of Lake View Terrace:

	             Helen's Special Patio Party
		There's only one word that would describe Doc's performance at my after
		5:00 patio party - "F-a-a-a-a-b-u-l-u-o-s!!"
		I requested that Doc come alone to play for my guests, because it was a
		rather small group.  He is a great talent! He played tunes that we all
		"remembered" and encouraged us to sing along, I can't remember when I've
		had so much fun. After a week my guests are still talking about how
		wonderful he was.
		Thank you Doc for making that night, a night to remember!
