The musical focus of the 17 piece LGS Big Band is jazz in all styles with an emphasis on swing and dance. The classics from Miller, Goodman, Basie, and Ellington are featured along with some rock/funk classics from the 70's and 80's. The bands format is 5 Saxophones, 4 Trombones, 4 Trumpets, Piano, Bass, Guitar and Drums. Participants must be over 18 years of age. The band rehearses on Wednesday evenings at Fisher Middle School band room. If positions are filled, the band is still always looking for players to sub for absentees (no fee for subs).
