Compaq Big Band
Night of Big Bands at the Palace Theatre (May 2007)
Celebrating Our 42nd Year!
When you want an experienced, professional, affordable,
authentic 20-piece big band, check out the internationally acclaimed
Compaq Big Band. They've kept New England swingin' since 1975, with a big band
repertoire that begins with honoring the classics from the 30s and 40s as
performed by the bands of Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie,
Duke Ellington, and other greats. We balance instrumental charts and horn
features with vocal numbers such as those popularized by Frank Sinatra,
Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Bobby Darin, Frankie Randall, Nancy Wilson,
Diane Schuur, and many more.
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. We believe that music from the bands
of Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton, Maynard Ferguson, Tom Kubis, Gordon Goodwin's Big Phat Band,
and more are a vital part of what dancers and listeners alike want to hear.
