We had the privilege of speaking with the team at Good Day Fox 4 about the rich history of the Emerald City Band. Starting in 1983 we hit the ground running, playing for public events with our original music and then moving on to covers of popular songs on the radio at weddings and galas. Now, 38 years, over 4000 weddings, galas, fundraisers, playing for the White House (twice), Oprah Winfrey, and countless amazing opportunities, we sat down with Fox to give them the story of the Emerald City Band. Thank you to Fox for telling our story! Check out the full interview below.

June 4th, 2021 Emerald City took the main stage at Taste Addison to open for the amazing Flo Rida and kick off the summer with one of many upcoming outdoor concerts. The morning of, our founder, Deno Taglioli, and a few band members were featured on CBS to give the public some extra information on Taste Addison. With 180+ restaurants, 22 hotels, upscale living, world-class special events, and more than 10 million square feet of office space, Addison had a lot to pack into two nights for the public to enjoy.
Taste Addison hosts the best eats, boutiques, and fun activities in Addison all in one place for you to enjoy. With cuisine choices ranging from Mediterranean to Chinese, a cupcake and wine tasting garden, petting zoo, and airbrush tattoos, Taste Addison has everything you and your family would need on a night out, all packed into two nights. They also follow CDC safety and sanitation protocol for the health of the public.
Every year in addition to the festival of activities, Taste Addison features live music on both the CBS Legends stage and The Main Stage at the center of the festival which is free to attend with the price of admission. Local bands from DFW like The David Whiteman Band, Satisfaction, and LIT were asked to open the show and get the party started. This year Emerald City was asked to open for chart topping Rapper Flo Rida! We’ve covered songs by Flo Rida like, “Low, My House” and many others during our own shows, but to OPEN for him ourselves was truly a unique experience.
The evening started with a heavy downpour that caught more than a few of our band members in the rain and resulted in a short delay of the start of the show. But soon enough, the rain stopped, the stage dried and we were ready to rock! The show kicked off without another drop and soon the audience was moving and shaking, puddles forgotten. Our frontline man Bishop even managed to do a little crowd surfing!
Thank you so much to Taste Addison for having us! It was truly an honor to open for Flo Rida and rock out with everyone! Check out the Recap video and photo gallery below and follow our Social media for updates on the rest of our Summer!
Sold Out again with Fantastic Food. Great Music. High-Energy Dancing.
We love putting on this event every year, and every year it feels like it just gets better. This year was no exception. Starting with a VIP guests Meet and Greet, Deno and the band took pictures with all the guests. There were interviews with Mayors & Politicians from 5 cities, and sports figures from the Cowboys and Mavericks.
Scott Murray opened up the dinner introducing open band Special Edition, as guest ate shrimp and steak and started getting down on the dance floor. As 10pm rolled around Scott was back on stage introducing Emerald City. The room went dark and the audience watched as the music and lights started to build, the HD video wall lit up and the party was on as the full 15- piece Emerald City Band rocked the stage. For the next 3 hours the dance floor was packed and the music and entertainment brought us into 2017 with a bang.

Drumlines, Dancing Girls and Emerald City
This week we performed at The Bomb Factory in downtown Dallas. The party had a brazilian flare, with dancing girls and guys, a drum line and beautifully themed decor. After that opening we hit the stage to an enthusiastic filled dancefloor, I could say more but the video says it all. Check it out.
Our original song for the Holidays, “It’s Christmas Time” is getting airplay all over the radio this year. If you haven’t heard check out the music video below.
Original Song by Deno & Emerald City Band
We are so proud of this new Christmas song since its creation two years ago. It has been played during the holidays on radio stations around the country as well as being used for Fox Dallas Fort Worth’s Toys for Tots Campaign.
The song has even been used in light displays during the Christmas Season. Enjoy these videos and get the song today on iTunes or Google Play.
It’s Christmas Time was used in all promotion of Toys for Tots on Fox. In 2015 they had Emerald City come perform live on the air as part of their Christmas Special, check it our HERE.
Seen by over 500 people per night during Christmas Season, this one-of-a-kind display lights up Emerald City Band’s song “It’s Christmas Time”. Gordon Lights, who specializes in providing lighting solutions for some of the top events in the country created this scene to bring the song to life for the Dallas/Fort Worth Area.

One of the more fun events we do is Rock the Red Door. For one it is for a good cause Cancer Support Community of North Texas. For another we get to dress up in Halloween Costumes and get crazy.

Cancer Support Community of North Texas was created to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
There is something famous about the town of Tyler and for another year Emerald City Band carried on that famous Tradition celebrating the Tyler Roses at the annual Rose Queen’s Ball. Young and old danced the night away in tuxes and ball gowns at the Harvey Hall Convention Center as Emerald City performed hit after hit in this concert like atmosphere.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott even took in the sounds in the packed eastern asian themed room, and had time to take a picture with some of Emerald City’s Band Members.
Thanks again to Texas Rose Festival Queen’s Ball for allowing ECB to entertain at this spectacular event. Check out the video here!
The Texas Rose Festival, a three-day event held annually in Tyler, Texas, celebrates the role of the rose-growing industry in the local economy. The festivities, taking place during the third weekend of October, draw thousands of tourists to the city each year. The first Tyler Rose Festival was organized by Tyler Garden Club members, local rose growers and the Chamber of Commerce in October 1933 for the purpose of focusing attention on the importance of the rose industry to Tyler, and to showcase the towns elegance, it was renamed the Texas Rose Festival during the Texas Centennial in 1936.
