The Asheville Gentlemen is a group of professional musicians known for their good dancing music (especially standards from the 1930's - 1950's and Dixieland), versatility and showmanship. Under the leadership of saxophonist Lloyd Weinberg, well known as the director of the UNC-Asheville Community Jazz Band, this dynamic group of top-notch musicians has performed for weddings, conventions, concerts, festivals and private parties since 1987.
The Asheville Gentlemen can accommodate any size event, whether it's a show, a dinner-dance or just for background music. Any arrangement from a solo pianist to a large band can be provided according to your needs. The core group consists of piano, bass, drums, and saxophone. Guitar, trumpet, trombone and/or vocalist can be added to suit the occasion.
