Swing, jazz, perhaps a little improv. Big Band is the Music Players' Society's larger jazz ensemble playing the highlights of the Golden Era with a focus on written arrangements.

The MPS Big Band is back and bigger than ever. With a full set of dedicated musicians and  well over 2 hours of varied material, we're confident we can cater to any request; be it set you boogieing to Jungle Boogie and Sing Sing Sing, to serenade you with classic Sinatra and Nat King Cole, or to satisfy your jazzy palate with Count Basie and Mingus we can do it all! Our flexible band allows us to change to fit your needs and we look forward to playing for you.

Like all of the MPS ensembles, Big Band is non-auditioned and new members are always welcome. If you are interested in joining, please visit our Facebook group.

Set list favourites: Jungle Boogie, Fly Me To The Moon, Sing Sing Sing

Perfect for: balls, weddings, jazz nights, background music
