The Big Band Club Orchestra

Concerts, Community Events, Dances, Fundraisers

18 professional musicians - a musical experience



  The Big Band Club Orchestra has been entertaining Montréal audiences for more than 40 years, treating listeners and dancers alike with a variety of outstanding music. Today, the orchestra is more popular than ever, bringing the big-band sound to those who remember the wonderful old tunes and to a much younger audience who has rarely had a chance to hear a live big band.

The 18 piece band with its five trumpets, five saxophones, four trombones and four-piece rhythm section offers listeners a chance to hear swing, Latin, and ballad music like it was meant to be heard. Micheline Rider, the talented featured vocalist adds even more warmth and excitement to the orchestra as they play songs from Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Henry Mancini, Billy May, Lennie Niehaus, and a host of others.

Younger audiences are always amazed at how much they enjoy the music and begin to get an idea of where the roots are. People who enjoy listening to good music and perhaps dancing to the tunes of their youth are always delighted to get an opportunity to experience a big band: something that is extremely rare in today's world of recordings and synthesizers.

The big band club Orchestra will add that special touch to all your occasions including fundraisers, dances, community events and summer concerts.
