Danny Balancio / Trombone

Danny Balancio 2Jazz and Big-band have flowed through Danny’s veins since he was 11 years old and for him it will forever be the music where it all started. As an alumni of the infamous 6-year Jazz program at Eagle Rock Jr/Sr High school Danny cemented a love for music that he will carry to the grave. He took that passion to Pasadena City College under the direction of Dirk Fischer & Bobby Bradford and later to USC under John Thomas and Shelly Berg. 

Danny toured extensively with Lou Bega as the opening act on the Cher Can You Believe tour and toured throughout South America with Lou after the Cher tour.  He’s had the honor and privilege to share the stage with the likes of Barry Manilow, Barbara Morrison, Joan Sebastian, Poncho Sanchez, El Canario, Herman Oliviera, Eddie Santiago, Francisco Aguabella, Yeska, The Garcia Brothers, Fred Ramirez Latin Jazz ensemble, and has works much of the Jazz, Salsa, & Latin jazz scene in Los Angeles today.
