The Dallas Jazz Band The Dallas Jazz Band

Dallas-Fort Worth trumpeter Chuck Fesperman began his musical career in North Carolina. He performed with Bill Hanna's Charlotte All-Star Jazz Band while in high school. He studied Music Education at Appalachian State University and The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Chuck served in the U.S. Coast Guard and during that time he performed with the Coast Guard Training Center Bands in Cape May, NJ and Petaluma, CA. After his military service, he performed with regional bands, including The Memphis All-Stars, The Herb Williams Band, The Mob City Swingsters and also with the late Marcel Evans (formerly with The Drifters). He has played throughout the USA and Caribbean, as well as on cruise ships. Chuck has studied jazz improvisation with smooth jazz trumpet artist Rick Braun, and also with the great jazz educator, Dan Hearle.

Chuck currently resides in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Chuck leads The Dallas Jazz Band and performs in clubs and restaurants, as well as private parties, weddings, corporate events, and festivals. The band plays jazz standards, smooth jazz, blues, latin, and pop/R&B.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
