The Oz Big Band
The Brunswick Big Band
Brunswick Big Band has only entered the performance space this year, but they sure have entered with a bang! They are an 18-piece band that get together each week to play swing, funk, Latin and contemporary jazz. Between the hurricane of horns and rambunctious rhythm section, the dedicated band has a lot of sound to brighten your day.
