Dandy Wellington, born and raised in Harlem, NY, grew up with one foot on the stage, and jazz pumping through his veins. Three years after tossing his graduation cap from NYU, Dandy decided to dedicate his life to social awareness through the mediums he knows best: fashion, production, and entertainment. Through his own brand and lifestyle, Dandy has developed strong relationships within many industries, both local and abroad, and is consistently creating partnerships as a social media guru, producer of events, performer, or conceptual stylist.
Clients such as Make Up Forever, Vigoss Denim, Red Bull Space, and Laura Dawson have enlisted Dandy for his sought-after imagination, and unparalleled eye for detail. Featured in The NY Times, The NY Post, Vogue, Ebony, and Time Out NY, Dandy Wellington has become the “go-to guy” for all things lifestyle related.
The classic aesthetic and modern perspective that is Dandy, has, and will continue to be a fixture of NYC and beyond. With each performance, fashion production, and event collaboration, Dandy Wellington will continue to be the glue that binds a generation of creative minds and corporations to their prospective audiences.
Dandy is currently vocalist of Dandy Wellington and His Band, and a member of world renowned performance group, The Harlem James Gang.
Inspired by the Big Band Era of Jazz, Dandy Wellington and his Band have taken the sounds of the 1930’s and 40’s and created a world of well dressed music. With a passion for obscure songs steeped in the Jazz tradition, Dandy Wellington has assembled a catalog of music that invokes an atmosphere of class. From the golden age of cinema, to the bounce of New Orleans, each song is hand selected and played to perfection by a band cut from the cloth of elegance.
