Dan Gabel and the Abeltones.jpg

Dan Gabel and The Abletones is an authentic 18-piece Big Band, specializing in the music of the 1930s and 40s. Bandleader Dan Gabel has played with the Glenn Miller Orchestra for over a year on a world-tour, played with the Tommy Dorsey and Hal McIntyre Orchestras, and is considered an expert on the big band era. He graduated with a Masters Degree in 2014 from New England Conservatory of Music, and is an active trombonist, arranger, bandleader, and teacher in the greater Boston music scene.

The band features vocalist Elise Roth, who encapsulates the look and sound of the big band era, dazzling audiences with her vocal precision and style. The Abletones sport a vintage look with matching tuxedos, vests and ties, and use period equipment, such as 1930s era mutes and stands. The Worcester Telegram has said that "Dan Gabel is the real deal! A band that looks and sounds just like the WWII era."
