Celebrating Our 49th Year!

When you want an experienced, professional, affordable, authentic 19-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.
