The John Daversa Big Band

Throughout its 25-year tenure, the multiple Grammy® Award winning John Daversa Big Band has passionately pursued a musical philosophy that aims to stretch boundaries, illuminate imagination, and explore new worlds of improvisational music.

Originating from Los Angeles, John Daversa brings his 18-piece jazz orchestra back to Yoshi’s featuring Grammy® Award and MacArthur Fellow, Dafnis Prieto on drums, with special guest vocalist, Tiffany Austin. The big band will perform music from Daversa’s Grammy® nominated album, Kaleidoscope Eyes: Music of the Beatles, the Grammy® winning, American Dreamers: Voices of Hope, Music of Freedom, and Global Music Award Best In Show winner, Junk Wagon: The Big Band Album.

Allied with musicians from Miami, Los Angeles, and the Bay Area, Daversa’s imaginative, genre- fusing compositions, arrangements, and improvisations have returned to Oakland!
