Overview

During our performances your friends can expect incredible diverse styles. Although our band specializes in Swing, Sinatra, Big Band, and Big Bad Voodoo Daddies we also do Popular rock, Reggae, Motown, Polkas, and Latin styles. The audience will see a very classy orchestra in tuxedos, hear artistry of talented real musicians who have studied in finest music schools in the country and are excelling musicians. Our more than 15 years as a band has grown our professionalism and our musicianship.
We do not do light shows, we do not do rap or music that is crude, rude, or vulgar. We are not loud even in small spaces but we are fun and powerful because we swing and rock.

Additional Booking Notes

Although we are usually a 10 piece band our talented musicians can play in many different combinations, piano solo, jazz trio of sax, jazz guitar and bass; or drums. Our usual small group is 7 or 8 musicians for a skeleton big band sound.
