Welcome to our Big Band Website

We are an exciting swing Big Band that performs classic dance-band favorites made famous by such great groups as Glenn Miller, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, as well as 50s rock ‘n roll. We play for public events, wedding receptions, dinners, church functions, charity benefits and senior facilities.

Our 14-piece band includes saxes, trombones, trumpets, and rhythm section, and vocalist, produces an authentic Big Band sound. We can also arrange a smaller group, if needed.

We perform for everything from small gatherings to large formal events in the Albuquerque-Rio Rancho area. We have a large repertoire of Swing, Jazz, Latin, Dixieland, Polkas, Blues, Show-tunes and popular favorites, all suitable for dancing and listening.

We play fast, slow or both, you choose. If you have a favorite, we probably play it. If you would like us to play for your group or event, please call band leader, Jim Thompson at 505-917-2865.
