Special Statement on Covid-19 Pandemic

April 2020

We want to let all our valued fans and clients - current and future - know that the entire Compaq Big Band is thinking about you and your families during the chaos that is the Covid-19 pandemic. Especially for our clients, we are also thinking of the people that are the fabric of the wonderful organizations you represent, and the incredibly difficult business challenge this pandemic represents for for-profits and non-profits alike.

We're watching all the daily developments that will hopefully lead to better times ahead, not the least of which is the opportunity to make great big band music together for New England's best swing dancers and avid jazz listening audiences. As restrictions continue and we are notified of official gig cancellations, where possible we will work diligently with clients to re-book a future date as soon as appropriate. We'll return to the stage just as quickly as all applicable federal, state, and local restrictions are modified/lifted, our clients feel safe in restarting operations, and the band members are confident we are not risking our and our family's health by gathering to rehearse and perform.

When we are able to all enjoy live big band events again, the Compaq Big Band remains more dedicated than ever to providing a superior musical experience to clients, and to remain flexible on compensation. We understand that it may take some time to eventually get back to packed houses, and our emphasis will remain on partnering with clients to get dancers and listeners back into the venues for the long haul.

In the meantime, please stay healthy, and please visit the Compaq Big Band on Facebook to scroll through our posts over the last year plus – some great times, great tunes, and great audiences. A 'Like' would be very cool, too ;) We'll continue to update www.compaqbigband.com with the latest gig schedule information.
