This band has a line up of saxophones, trumpets, trombones, guitars, drums and keyboard and a mix of experienced jazz players and some that have joined from the other concert bands.

The Big Band plays three dances a year with Jazz, Latin and cuban music, jazz festivals, as well as a number of generic gigs with a bit more contemporary jazz music and some rock thrown in and has vocalists as well who are part of the group.
