The Rick Brunetto Big Band

Big Band from Columbus, OH - Will travel up to 10 miles

$800 - $3500 per event

The Rick Brunetto Big Band is a 17-piece orchestra that features the music of the 30's and 40's Big Band era on up through the present. The ensemble performs all styles of music from swing to Latin to show tunes and contemporary rock. The band's vast library of music enables it to appeal to virtually all age groups for listening and dancing.

On a typical evening you might hear Glenn Miller's "In The Mood", "Moonlight Serenade", or swing to the sounds of Tommy Dorsey's "Opus One," the music of Frank Sinatra and Count Basie. The next set you can hear the sounds of Chicago, Earth Wind and Fire, Motown or Manilow come alive or see the band bring the house down with Gene Krupa's "Sing Sing Sing."

If you're looking for a LAS VEGAS STYLE SHOW this group is sure to deliver. They have produced several shows including "Big Band on Broadway", "A Tribute To Frank Sinatra", “Swings Still The Thing”, "Bernstein on Broadway", “The American Italian Icons”, “History of The Great Big Bands” and more These shows are available for booking and provide some of the most exciting entertainment you will see anywhere.

Highlighting the orchestra are the fine vocal talents of fabulous vocalist Chuck Gillespie, former news anchor at WSYX ABC 6-TV, lovely Kelly McLennan, one of Columbus' finest jazz singers and the smooth sounds of Michael Phillips who alternate nights behind the microphone. They truly represent the finest singing talent in the Central Ohio area.

In a day and age where small electronic groups have all but replaced 17 piece bands, this group has seemingly achieved the impossible. For over 21 years they have maintained a steady engagement, appearing in various clubs and hotels in the Columbus area. Seventeen piece bands are virtually unheard of in cocktail lounges, but this bands unique situation has enjoyed enormous success and support from the many people who come every week to listen and dance to the Big Band sound.

Currently the Rick Brunetto Big Band performs every Thursday night at the 94th Aero Squadron near Port Columbus Airport. This June they celebrated twenty years of weekly performances at the Squadron - Truly a remarkable achievement
