Weddings: Don't settle for a tired wedding band or a cheesy DJ playing the same old routines. The Boilermakers will have you jumping and jiving to a hot swing classic, slow dancing to a sentimental ballad, or trying a little Latin step. We can handle your cocktail hour, introductions and emceeing, bridal dances, ethnic requests, and swinging all night long. You're guests will feel like they've been invited to a soiree at the Great Gatsby's Mansion!

WHEN SWING WAS KING - A TRIBUTE TO BENNY GOODMAN
Benny Goodman was known as the King of Swing - his iconic Big Band recordings of the 1930's & 40's are instantly recognizable and still popular today. In this concert Paul Cosentino and the Boilermaker Jazz Band will bring the energy and delicate swing of the Goodman small bands to you, performing some of their best known material. You'll also hear some of your favorite Goodman Big Band melodies, done small band style. Benny Goodman was also fortunate enough to work with some of the finest female vocalists of the era including Peggy Lee, Martha Tilton, Ella Fitzgerald, and the Helens- Ward and Forrest. These ladies always brought a touch of class and grace to the proceedings along with the requisite swing factor! Jennifer McNulty brings you selections by Benny's Girls.

Get in touch with The Boilermaker Jazz Band and let us bring a touch of classic jazz and swing to your event!

The band was great. Very professional and a good sound. They definitely played to the crowds vibe. We had a mixture of dancers, table conversation and mingling and the selections, volume and tone was very condusive to it all.
