Portland, Oregon based Jumptown Big Band is a professional 17-piece swing

Our repertoire of musical arrangements includes up-tempo swing, foxtrots,

ballads, rock ‘n roll, and Latin.  Our music can be tailored to suit any event.

We perform danceable Count Basie, Ted Heath, and Les Brown style

swing music as well as more modern jazz concert pieces in the styles of

Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton, Rob McConnell, and Gordon Goodwin. We have

also been known to mix in some contemporary pop hits from artists

such as Amy Winehouse and Pharrell Williams.


Whether it be a well-known big band standard, contemporary

jazz showcase, sentimental vocal ballad, or a hard swinging

brass feature, Jumptown Big Band provides a unique

and complete package of musical entertainment.
