Jazz, Swing, and Big Band—Feel the Rhythms of America
The 1900’s—the century of two World Wars, ideological revolutions, societal changes, and musical evolutions. For the United States, the musical evolutions that took place during the 20th century reflect the evolution of American culture as we know it today.
As a harmonious blend of African American and European American music styles, jazz music is considered “one of America’s original art forms.” Through its use of improvisation and incorporation of regional and cultural styles, jazz music developed into a unique genre that ranges from calm, smooth “blues” to energetic, ragged rhythms. The rhythms of jazz create an atmosphere of elegance and style—perfect for corporate functions, wedding ceremonies and receptions, and special events.
Evolving from the jazz music in the 1930’s, swing music instantly became an American favorite. Swing’s upbeat dance rhythms make it perfect for corporate functions and wedding receptions—where your guests are guaranteed to get on their feet and swing the night away.
American artists—Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, and Tommy Dorsey—help characterize the Big Band era. Big Band—a type of musical ensemble which contains 10-25 instrumental pieces—received its distinctive characterization by its little use of improvisation and increased use of sheet music. Our Big Band music energizes and enlivens the crowd—ensuring that your celebration will be one to remember.
