The JOHN MONTESANTE DECTET is a quality 10 piece Jazz band, that boasts six horns, a matchless rhythm section, with additional guest vocals – performing the coolest jazz arrangements in town.
The Dectet had its genesis in Montesante’s stylish, horn-led Quintet, (JMQ - formed 1990) which performs regularly at venues, events and festivals, and is lauded for its quality, longevity and versatility.
