The Band

Delta Brass Express started in 2010 as a result of a group of friends wanting to play a mix of jazz and classic rock. This Arkansas based band features a trumpet, sax, and trombone horn line, a four piece rhythm section, and lead a vocalist. Delta Brass Express specializes in 60s, 70s and 80s rock and roll as well as smooth jazz standards. Whether you are looking for a full eight piece band or a 4-5 piece combo, we are ready to perform at your next event.



David Laubach first picked up the trumpet at the age of 13 and hasn't stopped playing since. Performing with the Air force Band for 20 years, David has played for three presidents and his versatility helps DBE bring a huge variety of music to the stage.

Jon Vanhouten is a key session player in the central Arkansas area and has been playing the saxophone as long as he can remember. The youngest member of DBE, Jon is a graduate of the nationally recognized U of A Monticello Jazz program. He has talent that exceeds his years.
