Classic Swing from the Big Band Era
Listen... the sounds of Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller and more. It's the Minnesota Jazz Orchestra playing swing that's so real; so gutsy and smooth you'll want to dance to it all night. Whether you desire the coolness of "I Get a Kick Out Of You", the slow passionate crescendos in "When I Fall In Love", the swinging beat of "Sing, Sing, Sing", or even latins and waltzes, MJO delivers a full big band sound the way you've heard only on CD's... better yet, it's live!
Members of this fine ensemble include proven professionals with road experience and trainingfrom top schools around the country. MJO features a magnificent 16 piece big band along with fabulous vocals.
The Minnesota Jazz Orchestra has been featured at the Artist's Quarter and can be seen regularly at the Wabasha Street Caves in St. Paul. They are a member of the Twin Cities Bridal Association and can be heard regularly during Jerry Swanberg's weekly Big Band show on KBEM radio.
Named as one of the Twin Cities Top Ten Cover Bands, Minneapolis/St. Paul magazine called MJO "...hep cats [that] will have you dancing the Texas Tommy and the Shim Sham to luscious covers from the big band era." Whether it's the most spectacular wedding you're planning, a Bar Mitzvah, corporate party, or an evening at a dance club, MJO is the group that you've been looking for.
Oh, one word of warning... you'd better have your dance shoes on, because you won't want to sit this one out.
