About
The Don Elwood Big Band brings you a customized experience for your event. We cover the most popular tunes from the Swing era, along with a variety of dance charts that keep any event hopping. Our set list can include two-step, foxtrot, waltz, cha-cha, tango, latin, and even polka numbers. If a show is more your style, we have a wide selection of tunes to fit the mood of your occasion. For a truly unique experience, we provide some of our own arrangements and original tunes that you won't hear anywhere else. We play indoors or out, and you decide if we play all instrumental or include some vocal numbers. Our musicians hail from along the Front Range, including Cheyenne to Denver.

The band is available for weddings, receptions, parties, banquets, festivals, and community and corporate events. Our past gigs have included jazz festivals, county fairs, private parties, and large dances. Some organizations regularly book us a year in advance. We love making our audiences smile, and pride ourselves in personalizing our service for your event. Please contact us to discuss your plans and how we can best make your event more memorable.

The band was AWESOME! I can't say enough about how incredibly great they were to work with and the high level of talent they offered. They graciously accommodated all our requests and were extremely polite in doing so. I can say without reservation that they MADE our fundraising event and that we will be having them back next year! You absolutely cannot go wrong with The Don Elwood Big Band!

Don Elwood Big Band’s Response:

Thank you so very much for your kind words and review. We were a little worn from our previous job that day but we enjoyed every moment of performing for your event. You and all your guest were so gracious and we sincerely appreciate the opportunity to have been apart of your fundraiser. Sincerely Jerry Boynton Don Elwood Big Band

We booked with Don to provide drum and bass for our 1940s dance. They provided accompaniment for our women’s vocal group, so they didn’t just come play their own music but instead were given 27 songs from us to prepare—many of which did not have drum/bass parts written and so they had to make up those parts themselves. They did a great job and really made our event a hit! Super responsive and easy to communicate with as well. Superb musicians—Would love to work with them again!

This band played at an outdoor neighborhood carnival and wow’d our audience of all ages! The music was of perfect volume, in tune, and matched the spirit of the venue. Jerry and Don were extremely responsive, proactive and reliable. We will definitely book again!
