About
The Deep Blue Big Band is one of Chicagoland's newest jazz big bands. Performing updated arrangements of many of the most popular big band standards, this 8-horn, vocalist, and rhythm section ensemble will bring exciting sounds and swingin' soloists to your public or corporate event, private party, wedding reception, or concert. The ensemble will also present new jazz compositions, as well as arrangements of popular songs from the late 1960's through today. We also now have several videos on our website. Whether you want to dance the night away or just listen to great music, this band is for you!

ALSO!!! If your event or space is a smaller affair or venue, consider hiring us as a small group ranging from a quartet to a septet. Our small groups play selections that are rooted in the traditions of jazz/swing, Latin, and ballad styles. We regularly include songs by the most famous of jazz composers and lyricists, as well as works associated with the great instrumentalists and vocalists. We also play music from the late 60's forward, including "lounge" music and smooth jazz styles.

We could not have been happier with our experience. We had the Deep Blue Big Band at an event at our home, and they absolutely blew our guests away. They were absolute professionals with the highest level of talent, and they accommodated all of our requests cheerfully. I hope to have them at future events, and would highly recommend them.

My husband and I absolutely loved having the DBBB at our wedding this past weekend. My parents had seen them at another wedding and they came highly recommended. My husband and I are both musicians, so obviously we wanted music to be a big part of the day. Everyone at the wedding commented on how fantastic the band was, and how fun it was to have an "old school" dance band. Even the professional musicians in the wedding party were impressed by the quality and amount of sound the band put out. The only thing that kept me from giving them 5 overall stars was that the group was a bit loud during the dinner hour. Other than that, fantastic. Thanks Michael!!!

The band helped make my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary party a memorable event. The guests enjoyed the music and dancing; it was exactly what we wanted. Communication was good before the event; we had the music and logistics worked out. The band arrived on time and started/finished on time. They played our requested music selections and were flexible to accommodate announcements/speeches. The band has a good sound with special accolades going to the Trombone, Bass, and Alto Sax. Special thanks to the band leader, Michael Stewart, for his tasty arrangements.
