Colorado Swing Big Band

Colorado Swing Big Band performs an exciting variety of great music including classic Big Band Era and Las Vegas show standards as well as popular music arrangements from contemporary artists. We would love to entertain at your festival, fundraiser, dance, wedding, or special event.
Our full-size big band creates that exciting sound you rarely hear anymore.

Colorado Swing Big Band features the area's top musical talent including great vocalists. Our arrangements feature the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Harry James, Stan Kenton, Frank Sinatra, Les Brown, George & Ira Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter, Buddy Rich, Brian Setzer, Gordon Goodwin, Bobby Darin, Doc Severinsen, Etta James, Nora Jones, Michael Bubl´┐Ż, Patsy Cline, Ella Fitzgerald as well as contemporary popular songs and artists.

Colorado Swing Cats is our smaller version of the big band that has the music, style and excitement that you expect, easily fits on a smaller stage, and may be just the right size for your venue.  If you want to create a Great Gatsby or Mardi Gras party with Dixieland and Roaring 20s music, this group offers the option to combine a variety of roaring 20s, big band era swing, traditional dance music and contemporary popular music and vocals at your event.  www.roaringtwentiesjazz.com

We have great references from our many happy customers
from our summer festival concerts, black-tie fundraisers, private parties, dances, weddings and special events. We would love to entertain at your event. We maintain an extensive list of fans and media contacts and will help promote your event.

  Call Kip Scholl at (970) 416-1414 to reserve your date.
