"STANDARD" BANDS

The "standard" dance combo usually consists of a piano, bass, and drums, and is usually augmented by a sax, trumpet, and/or trombone.  All of the standard bands emphasize the popular music and jazz of the 30's through the present.  In general, they will not sound like a "rock" band because they don't stress the use of electronically amplified instruments.  Some bands may include a vocalist.  Most can also do polkas, waltzes, and Latin-American selections.
