The Mission The Joey Thomas Big Band is an award winning nineteen piece Orchestra. We are proud to have been Voted 'Best of the best' by Metroland Magazine in 1999 and 2002. We have been Grammy nominated at entry level for our 'Live on WAMC' CD in 2000 and 'The Sinatra Show Volume I' CD in 2001. The JTBB consists of 16 professional musicians and music educators along with two very talented and seasoned vocalists. (male and female). Rounding out our staff is a highly trained and knowledgeable recording and sound technician who insures that our live sound and our recording mixes are one in the same. The JTBB specializes in performing the classic arrangements as recorded by the original hit makers. Big Band Swing is an American Heritage. The JTBB is committed to the perpetuation of this American treasure through performances which include dances, weddings, private parties of all kinds, fund raisers, charity events, High School and College dances, concerts and clinics, special performances, specialty tributes, dedications, occasional TV appearances, as well as monthly Live Radio Shows. Our music library is quite extensive with over 3000 arrangements and growing daily. At present we have two staff arrangers/writers who are defining the sound of the JTBB. They capture the uniqueness of the musicians who make up the JTBB and the dreams of Joey Thomas. Hopefully, through the use of original music and arrangements written specifically for the JTBB, we will reach our goal of becoming a Nationally Recognized Big Band. For the finest in Big Band Entertainment and music the only choice is The Joey Thomas Big Band. Remember; our business is your pleasure. Keep Swinging, Joey Thomas & The JTBB.
