About Vendor 

Learn more about this vendor for your event.

THE BIG BAND EXPRESS has enjoyed a long and rich history in performing big band music in the state of Michigan and surrounding areas. We typically play at weddings, fundraisers, anniversary parties and other celebrations. Some of our performances have included the Michigan State Fair and Henry Ford/Greenfield Village. The Big Band Express specialty is in the Big Band Era from the Forties, Fifties and Sixties. We have charts from artists such as Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Harry James, Count Basie, Billy May, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Henry Mancini, Les Brown, Les & Larry Elgart and other big band greats. We work closely with our clients so that their event is as specialized to their musical tastes as possible. We also have some smaller bands which include a nine/ten piece band and a jazz trio/quartet and quintet.

Nursing Home EventReviewed on February 19, 2024From Clarkston, MI

Big Band Express Orchestra:

Hello Elizabeth! On behalf of the band we enjoyed playing for the dedication of the new building on your campus at the Addington place in Clarkston. We talked to several people at the celebration and everyone was so friendly and accomodating. We would love to play for you again! Sincerely, Brian Buckmaster Big Band Express Orchestra.

Private PartyReviewed on September 19, 2023From Toledo, OH

Very Professional, beautiful music. Great the crowd. We loved them~!

Big Band Express Orchestra:

We (the band) loved the audience, they showed their appreciation with their applause and they loved the variety of jazz and latin tunes that we did. Our host Alison was well prepared for our arrival, it made everything go smoothly. Everyone that I talked to was very friendly! We would go back again for another performance in a heartbeat1 Brian Buckmaster Big Band Express Orchestra.
