About Us

The Skyline Jazz Duo

The Skyline Jazz Duo consists of Dave Ramsay on piano and Greg Silva on upright bass and vocals.  Their repertoire consists of classic jazz standards and songs from the great American songbook.   For more info on Greg please visit the Bio page. Dave recorded and toured extensively with the Maynard Ferguson big band in the 1980's in addition, he also toured with jazz trumpeter Tiger Okoshi.  Together their chemistry will bring the listener with them as they perform some of the greatest songs ever composed. They are a great addition to the classier event or venue. We can also perform as a trio with the addition of a saxophonist or a drummer. We can also do just an instrumental performance.

The Greg Silva Trio gave an exquisite, live performance at Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, RI on May 9th, 2017. Whether you book the Duo or Trio, Greg Silva is the perfect artist for your event. From Jazz standards to unique covers, there are no boundaries for Greg and his bands! Five stars for Greg Silva! We loved having them and we highly recommend hiring them for an event."

 In October 2015, Skyline Trio, led by Greg, performed at cocktail hour for our wedding at the Aldrich Mansion in Warwick, RI. We booked them with with no reviews from Gig Masters and frankly could not have been happier. The jazz trio sounded awesome. Greg and his band clearly take their music seriously and we received numerous compliments on them after the wedding. We found Greg easy to work with (low maintenance), quick to respond over email and found their price very fair. I would hire them again and highly recommend to friends and family.

We hired Greg and his band to provide the music for our wedding, and boy, are we glad we did! They far exceeded expectations. They were a pleasure to work with, always answering any questions promptly, and working with us to make sure that they would be doing the songs and styles we wanted. On top of all that, all their music was just great! They had us and our guests happy and dancing, and many guests told us how delightful the musicians were. We now want to find and attend some local gigs they play. These guys are very talented and personable -- highly recommended! --

 My wife and I both really like jazz, and we have a lot of friends and family that do too, so we knew we wanted live jazz as part of our wedding. We found the Greg Silva Trio online and hired them to play at our wedding, and we couldn't have been happier that we did. Greg was very responsive and helpful during the run-up to the event, he was organized and on time during the day-of, and most importantly, the band sounded fantastic. We even asked Greg to provide the processional music when the bride walked down the aisle, and their beautiful rendition of Sam Cooke's "Nothing Can Change This Love" brought tears to our guests' eyes. Of our friends who know jazz, almost all came up to me and told me afterward how much they enjoyed the music. I'd highly recommend the Greg Silva Trio to anyone looking to have sophisticated, tasteful jazz at their wedding.

Greg was great to work with! Fantastic communication, easy coordination, and a couple wonderful musicians. We booked the Skyline Jazz Duo and our guests loved it. We will certainly consider Skyline for any needs going forward as well as for the same event next year. Thank you, Greg!

Our celebration of life was for a bass player and lifelong lover of jazz music. The duo were wonderful, they reflected Charlie's reverence of jazz and set the mood for family and friends to celebrate in Charlie's style. Many people left with great comments regarding this wonderful duo. 


The Skyline Duo was great, I can't wait to used them at my next event. Everyone who attended asked where I found the group.Mark P. FROM QUINCY, MA ON 1/3

When my wife Eileen had a special birthday coming up, I planned a nice party in a private room at a local restaurant and did what I had always wanted to do; book jazz musicians. As much fun as the Trio or Trio+1 might have been, the occasion and venue called for something more subtle so it was Greg and his keyboard player, Dave. The music selection was impeccable and the volume balance was perfect so that those who wanted to talk could talk and those who wanted to hear music could listen. Every venue has canned, piped-in music available but live jazz really, really made the evening. Greg and Dave are so good, so smooth and in sync. I cannot thank them enough for making a special night that much more special and enjoyable.
