The Wing Dings

The Wing Dings is a high-energy party band with songs and styles from the last 50 years.  Consisting of Chris Hough (guitar), Linke Hebrew (bass), Christian Parry (Drums) - some of the most respected professionals available in Utah, dedicated to providing a complete entertaining experience for all ages spanning the eras.  This band is also a jazz band when needed and can transition between the two as the event unfolds.  Female vocalist, keyboards, and saxophone are optional additions.  This band is a crowd-pleaser and knows just how to tailor for your event.  The band's song list contains 100s of songs, but if they don't know your special song they will learn it. 

After obtaining a degree in professional music from Boston's Berklee College of Music Chris became a member of the Winiker Band - The Boston Globe called the Winikers "Boston’s House Band." Some events Chris has performed include President Clinton’s Presidential Inaugural Ball, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Boston Ballet, Harvard University, and some venues such as The Wang Center, Boston’s Regatta Bar, The Parker House Hotel, Zanzibar, and The Colonnade. Chris gained his vast repertoire playing countless events on the East Coast.  After Chris relocated to the Salt Lake area he formed the Wing Dings in addition to his jazz and rock band.  See Sample Song List  Below.
