About
The Chris Humphrey Big Band (3-14 pieces) is a jazz/latin/swing band on the scene in Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts, available NOW to play events ranging from corporate parties and ballroom dances to intimate club dates and charity functions to concerts in city parks. This 14 piece big band's membership is experienced, deeply musical and all are in high demand as individual musicians in their own right.

Chris Humphrey can provide you with solo piano/vocals, duos, trios, quartets, quintets...his 7-piece "little big band", as well as the flagship "Chris Humphrey Big Band"

Musical Focus: Classic big band jazz, featuring tunes from 1930s-1960s. Stylistically, we try to emulate the Count Basie Orchestra. We also play tunes made famous by Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Stan Kenton, Buddy Rich, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble and Glenn Miller.

Number of Songs Available: over 200, special arrangements available on request.

The Chris Humphrey's Band made our event an unqualified success. Talented, professional, kind and accommodating in every way. Everyone- young, old and in between- was thoroughly entertained. I cannot wait to find another opportunity to work with them again. They're the best around.

If there was one word I could use to describe Chris Humphrey and his band it would be tasteful. Everything had a touch of tact and class, and it really allowed us to relax and enjoy our wedding knowing that we didn't have to worry about the music. He did a wonderful ob MCing the event from introducing the wedding party to the cake cutting and bouquet toss with a drum roll. The music made the mood during dinner, there was time for slow dances, upbeat swing, and at the end even some tasteful DJing for all the people who wanted to step it up a bit. We received numerous compliments on the band from guests and we couldn't have been more pleased.

The Chris Humphrey Big Band was phenomenal! We had extended the dance floor prior to the event and I am so glad that we did, as it was packed for every dance. Great volume and wonderful with announcements, Chris is the consummate professional. Many of our guests were from places as far away and as culturally diverse as Germany, New Zealand, India and China and yet they all raved about the music. It appealed to all ages as well. This is the best wedding band imaginable and I would give them my very highest recommendation.

These guys were fantastic. Everyone loved the music. They managed to get almost everyone dancing. Chris had the added challenges of not being able to use any amplified sound. We could not have a microphone or evan a piano that plugged in and the sound was still fantastic! I would recommend these guys to anyone! I loved them and so did all of out guests!

The Chis Humphrey Big Band played at our wedding and I can't say enough great things about them. We found them simply through a web search, and Chris' voice was excellent. We considered the price for his talent level exceptional! We purchased a quartet (Chris plays piano and sings, and he brought a drummer, upright bass player and saxophonist. Chris was exceptionally professional, answering emails much quicker than I ever expected, working out all of our questions and the details quickly. Chris was incredibly easy to work with and very accommodating. His music was enjoyed by all and his MC announcements were professionally done and classy.
