Music director/arranger is Paul McDonald on keys, Grammy winner Kevin O'Neal on bass, Grammy nominee Sammy K on drums, Duane Benjamin on bone, Dan Heffernan on tenor sax/reeds, Ed Mann, leader, on trumpet/flugelhorn. The band members are all stars with credits that range from Conan on TBS to the Kenny Cetera Chicago Experience, to Bob Hope and Burt Bacharach. Two of our members run their own bands. We've gigged throughout the Los Angeles area, including Catalina Bar and Grill, Typhoon, Jazz at the Rad, private parties such as Don Rickles 89th and in August, Vibrato Bar and Grill.
Ed has been featured in big bands throughout LA, including those led by Woody James, Danny Pucillo, Psych!, Rex Merriweather, and Larry Robison.

As a soloist, he’s a Conn-Selmer/Bach Stradivarius endorsing artist.
