Presented by Moet & Chandon, The Dynamic Les DeMerle Band, with vocalist, Bonnie Eisele, will have you dancing the night away.

Bonnie Eisele, the band’s featured vocalist, began her career as a student of opera in Chicago until she toured Europe with the Free Street Theater Company, spending a year in Brazil studying their singing and dancing traditions. Eisele received a call from DeMerle inviting her to audition for his band and eight weeks later, they were married.
Les DeMerle, band leader and modern jazz drummer, has performed with the Harry James Big Band, Wayne Newton, Manhattan Transfer, Lou Rawls, Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme and Joe Williams just to name a few. As the founder of the Amelia Island Jazz Festival, a portion of the proceeds from Jump, Jive and Wail will benefit the Amelia Island Jazz Festival Scholarship Program.
