The Joey Thomas Big Band is an award winning eighteen piece Orchestra. We are proud to have been Voted “Best of the best” by Metroland Magazine in 1999 and 2002. We have been Grammy nominated at entry level for our “Live on WAMC” CD in 2000 and “The Sinatra Show Volume I” CD in 2001.
The JTBB consists of 16 professional musicians and music educators along with a very talented and seasoned vocalist.
Rounding out our staff is a highly trained and knowledgeable recording and sound technician who insures that our live sound and our recording mixes are one in the same.
The JTBB specializes in performing the classic arrangements as recorded by the original hit makers.
The Big Band Swing era is part of America’s musical heritage. The JTBB is committed to the perpetuation of this treasured American art form through performances which include dances, weddings, private parties of all kinds, fund raisers, charity events, high school and college dances, concerts, clinics, special performances, specialty tributes, dedications, and TV appearances.
Our music library is expansive, with over 3000 arrangements, and keeps growing daily. At present we have two staff arrangers/writers who define the sound of the JTBB. They capture the uniqueness of the musicians who make up the band and the dreams of Joey Thomas.
Hopefully, through the use of original music and arrangements written specifically for the JTBB we will reach our goal of becoming a nationally recognized Big Band.
For the finest in Big Band Entertainment and music the only choice is The Joey Thomas Big Band.
Remember: Our business is your pleasure.
