The Wenatchee Swingin’ Big Band was formed over 36 years ago by fans and musicians from the Big Band Era. The 22 piece big band is a Wenatchee Valley College partner ensemble. Without a doubt, the Wenatchee Swingin’ Big Band is the most requested Northwest Big Band with a very strong local and regional draw.
Formed in 1981 the Wenatchee Swingin’ Big Band has become an active member of this region’s arts community, giving new life to the classic melodies made famous by such giants as Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie and Duke Ellington.
The civic minded band plays to enthusiastic audiences throughout North Central Washington at concerts and festivals.
