ABOUT US

Hi Everyone

Welcome to our new website.

For those of you who are just getting to know us we are an eighteen piece big band in Melbourne Australia. We are made up of four trumpets, four trombones, five saxes, drums, double bass, guitar, piano and a singer.

The players are all highly accomplished musicians with many years of experience performing on television, radio and in concert for some of the biggest names in showbusiness.

You will be able to get to know each of us through our monthly featured artist profiles along with news about the band’s activities and upcoming shows.

 

We also feature video highlights of some of our performances and rehearsals. You can also listen to samples of our latest CD releases.

We perform at The Bentleigh Club Show Room throughout the year (check out our Show Dates page) and we rehearse at the venue every Thursday between 1 and 3.30pm. You are welcome to join us at rehearsal - it's free!

We look forward to sharing our love for big band music with you and hope to see you at our next show.

 

Hope you enjoy these excerpts from our first CD. Copies are available at our shows so have a look at our show dates page on the menu.
