About
Second Wind Jazz was formed with one basic premise: Nothing's better than enjoying the saxes-and-brass sounds of Big Band arrangements … except playing those great arrangements! We've been helping to keep the Big Band sound alive in the Portland area since 1998. Glenn Miller's classic charts, the swinging sounds of Count Basie, lush ballads, a little bossa-nova, the jump swing of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy- if it makes us smile and say "Oh yeah!" we'll play it. Our three terrific vocalists will be favorites with you crowd! Come spend an evening with us - whether you boogie the night away on the dance floor or just kick back and tap your feet, we think you'll have a good time, too.

The swinging sounds of SWJ are perfect for benefits, music series, dances, private parties, festivals, fund raisers, retirement parties, corporate events - you name it, we've played it. We have formal or informal dress to suit your occasion, and will play indoors or out (weather permitting). Whichever setup you choose, Second Wind Jazz has the vocal hits and instrumental favorites that will keep your audience satisfied and grooving!

If our full 18-piece group is a little more band than you need, the SWJ septet may be just the ticket. The Septet has four horns plus rhythm section playing jazz standards and other tunes from the Great American Songbook. Drop a line or give us a call to explore options that fit your event.
