The Big Band Sound jazz orchestra  ... is a Band performing Swing/Jump, Big Band, Jazz, and Musical Theater music.

The Big Band Sound orchestra recreates the swinging jazz sounds of the big band era, performing compositions that span an entire century of music, including classics made famous by Duke Ellington, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Count Basie, Stan Kenton, Harry James and Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey. In the tradition of these great orchestras, The Big Band Sound is a 20-piece jazz band consisting of six saxophones, four trombones, four trumpets, guitar, bass, piano, drums, and male and female vocalists. The Big Band Sound has an active library of hundreds of compositions, from jumping jive to slow and sweet, all to bring the brassy big band era boisterously to life. The foundation of the band's repertoire is based firmly in the classic swing era of the 1930s and 1940s with all those golden hits, but the band also performs a wide variety of music from the 1950s through today that continue the tradition of the stirring, full-bodied sounds of the big bands. The Big Band Sound performs the greatest music in the world in the most exciting setting of a live big band! The Big Band Sound is based in Poughkeepsie, New York and has received rave reviews while performing throughout the Hudson Valley ever since 1975, including concerts, dances and shows at the Paramount Center for the Arts, Mohonk Mountain House, Sharon Playhouse, Vanderbilt Mansion, Mills Mansion, Locust Grove, Bard College, Vassar College, Marist College, Dutchess Community College, the Culinary Institute of America, West Point, Millbrook Vineyards & Winery, and local parks and festivals, in addition to appearing at private events and on local radio stations.
