Compaq Big Band
But standards are merely a terrific base for a truly complete big band. We complement these arrangements with the best swing charts from the 50s right up through the hottest big bands of today.

Next gig - Swing City - Saturday, January 31 - Cambridge, MA.
Join - The Compaq Big Band has an opening for a full-time trumpet player. The position requires proficiency on the lead position for many charts on a gig, but not for an entire performance as lead responsibilties are often shared between multiple players. Candidates need to have consistently solid volume and intonation on lead trumpet range, as well as possess excellent sight reading skills and 'team player' philosophy. Jazz soloing ability is a definite plus, but not mandatory. See our Join page for more information.
