What We Do


Jazz by Design Combo is the perfect choice for corporate events, parties, restaurants, and fundraisers. Jazz, Swing, Standards, and more can be performed by a duo, trio, quartet or quintet. If your budget or venue calls for a single musician, that can also be accommodated.

The group offers instrumental and/or vocal jazz with attention given to the purpose of your special event. We take pride in tailoring the music selections to the occasion. Our music library offers a wealth of tunes because by using the right music, professional performance, and polished presentation we can create an elegant atmosphere.

Who We Are


Jazz by Design Combo is led by saxophone player, Dave Tibbitts.  Dave has played and loved jazz since his high school days in the 70's. During his teaching career, Dave directed jazz ensembles for Orrville City Schools from 1980-2010. Upon retirement, Dave was called on to play with various jazz groups in Wayne and Ashland Counties. This evolved into the Jazz by Design Combo, a band that will provide music to create the environment you desire. Jazz, Swing, Standards, and more can be performed by a duo, trio, quartet or quintet. Dave would love to talk with you about providing music to meet your needs.
