"Easy Street" to perform.
The band was formed on January 19, 2003, bringing together the talents of sixteen area musicians, one vocalist, and a director. Its members come from numerous cities in Erie and Niagara counties.
While music from the “Big Band Era” makes up a large portion of the band’s line-up, jazz tunes and a variety of other types of music round out its repertoire. The band has performed for thousands of people at fundraisers, dances, weddings, festivals and concerts.
The band has been voted "Best Jazz Big Band" at the Buffalo Music Awards in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009.
On November 23, 2010, the band was inducted into the Buffalo Music Awards "Hall of Achievement".
Everyone in the group enjoys keeping the “Big Band” style of music alive, bringing back fond memories for some, and exposing the style to people who are a little too young to remember
