ABOUT COMPAQ BIG BAND

Celebrating their 32nd Year!
Wanna dance to an experienced, professional, authentic 20-piece big band? Check out the internationally acclaimed Compaq Big Band. They’ve kept New England swingin’ since 1975, with a big band repertoire that begins with honoring the classics from the 30s and 40s as performed by the bands of Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Tommy Dorsey, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, and other greats. We balance instrumental charts and horn features with vocal numbers such as those popularized by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Bobby Darin, Frankie Randall, Nancy Wilson, Diane Schuur, and many more. There's no substitute for the sound of lush, full, authentic big band instrumentation.

The Compaq Big Band showcases the power of 15 horns, a cookin' rhythm section, a great feature vocalist, and terrific instrumental soloists for a diverse range of amazing live swing.But standards are merely a terrific base for a truly complete big band. They complement these arrangements with the best swing charts from the 50s right up through the hottest big bands of today. They believe that these essentials are a vital part of what dancers and listeners alike want to hear.

The band provides a great night of swing for dancers of all abilities. But they also have a broader repertoire of titles that round out traditional swing with ballads, foxtrots, Latin tempos, and more, providing the perfect dance accompaniment to a night of fantastic swing dance music
