Drummer/Bandleader, Evan Sherman (b. 1993), is a native of New Jersey who has toured the world in the bands of Wynton & Branford Marsalis, Ron Carter, Roy Hargrove, Jimmy Heath, Cyrus Chestnut, Dizzy Gillespie All-Stars and more.
Sherman leads his groups all over the world which are often comprised of NYC's best rising stars alongside a rotating cast of incredible veterans and guests. In 2014, Evan formed the 16-piece Evan Sherman Big Band as the house band for years at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola's late night dance parties. The group continues to perform at the legendary, Rainbow Room in New York's Rockefeller Center, Midsummer Night Swing, Caramoor Jazz Festival (where they premiered an original piece of jazz theater, "A Story of Patience"), The Appel Room, The Django, Bowery Electric, & Ginny's Supper Club.
Over the years, the band has featured musical legends such as Roy Hargrove, Jon Batiste, Cyrus Chestnut, Johnny O''Neal, and Lew Soloff, creating a new unparalleled sense of camaraderie with the next generation which the band’s featured trombonist/vocalist Frank Lacy (D’Angelo, Art Blakey, Mingus Big Band) calls “a new dance-music cultural phenomenon, revisiting the old school!”
