Welcome to the website for Alan Pachter Music, featuring the Triple Double Band (formerly known as After Hours Band) and Top Shelf. Both groups are comprised of professional musicians, formally trained in music and maintaining careers in that industry for many years. You will get a fantastic performance because of our years of experience performing in a variety of settings.

The Triple Double Band is built around the talent of pianist/guitarist/vocalist Donald Wolcott. We play everything from dance music to jazz standards. Our event specialties include, but are not limited to, weddings, corporate events, conventions, receptions, and private parties.

Versatility is our signature. Our set list is large and eclectic, and features current radio pop and rock hits to older standards from Motown, rock, pop, funk, jazz and blues. Greenday to Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon to John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Elton John, Eric Clapton, John Legend, Bonnie Raitt, Duke Ellington, Etta James. All within our trio format. Don doubles on guitar as well as piano, sometimes within the same song. He is our vocalist as well. His versatility means that your song list options are tremendous.

Because most of our work is duo, trio or quartet, this website focuses on those formats. We can answer any questions about larger groups, so please don't hesitate to ask.

Triple Double Band is:
Don - piano/keyboards and electric and acoustic guitar, and lead vocals
Alan Pachter – bass
Anders Elliason/Jamie Parker – percussion and backing vocals

Additional musicians we use for larger configurations:
Jessica – female vocals. Jessica is the female lead in her band Invitation. There is a link to that band on the "links" page of this website, with plenty of professional video of her performing!
Jerry - guitar. Jerry is Jessica's husband, and is the guitarist in Invitation, so you can take a look at him as well!
Tom - tenor sax

Our typical package includes a set of cocktail jazz with or without vocals followed by 2-3 sets of our dance music sets.

Our website is specifically designed to help customers easily and quickly get to know us. You will find live video of us at a show of the larger 6-piece group from a show in 2013, live audio of the trio captured also on stage at a performance from July of 2015, and photos taken of us performing live as well. We specifically chose to use live recordings, video and photos so that you will see and hear exactly what you will be getting if you hire us! There is a link on our "links" page to additional audio samples from the same live performance from July of 2015

We can perform in many different configurations, from solo piano or guitar, with or without vocals, to the core trio, to a full 6 piece dance band. We can play with or without vocals, and you can tailor the configuration of the band to best suit your event! We can help you decide which configuration will work best for the musical needs and the budget that you have.

Top Shelf is the other group that is part of Alan Pachter Music. Top Shelf features Alan's other music partners, in duo, trio or quartet form. These partners include:
Ro Cube on piano and vocals
Scott Giambusso on guitar
Jerry Lynn on guitar
