Repertoire

Our Big Band Party Show spans decades of the best swing, big band, soul, funk, latin and pop music ever written – featuring artists such as Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse, Frank Sinatra, Average White Band, Michael Buble, Booker T, Aretha Franklin, Joss Stone, Etta James, Robbie Williams, Bobby Darin, but to name a few – all performed with our UNIQUE band set up, the likes of which you will not find anywhere in the country.

And for the more discerning big band fan, who loves to listen to the ‘high energy’ jazz fusion of legends such as – Maynard Ferguson, Buddy Rich, and Stand Kenton – we have a whole other show just for you – ripping shout sections, screaming trumpet and sax solos, and a driving rhythm section … we have it all packed into our Big Band Legends Show that we showcase at a number of events throughout the year.
