Wally's Cocktail Combo!
Wally's Cocktail Combo is a pared down version of
Wally's Swing World that Wally uses at certain
nightclubs and private events to accommodate the
diverse needs of clients and audiences.
The Combo is a four or five piece band featuring
Wally on vocals and guitar. He is backed by upright
bass, drums, and piano and/or sax. The band is based in
Santa Cruz, California and travels throughout the
The smaller band offers Wally the opportunity to
branch out musically into 50s rockabilly and
jump swing, guitar twang 60s surf rock, neo ultra
lounge, Latin jazz, samba and salsa, while still
maintaining his usual solid repertoire of cool "Rat Pack"
swing. The group has many loyal fans and, therefore,
many regular engagements. The band appears monthly at
Severino's in Aptos, the San Jose Fairmont Hotel,
and at Gordon Biersch and Agenda restaurants in San
The Combo is ideal for elegant formal events or
"dress down" casual parties. They play danceable music
with an intimate sound that is suitable for small
rooms and lounges as well as larger venues; intimate
gatherings as well as grand celebrations. From jumpin'
1940s jazz and fiery 1950s rock, to smooth 1960s
lounge, Wally's Cocktail Combo plays it with style. For
