Joey Thomas Big Band

The Joey Thomas Big Band is an award winning nineteen piece Orchestra Voted "Best of the best" by Metroland Magazine in 1999 and 2002.

The JTBB consists of 16 professional musicians and music educators along with two very talented and seasoned vocalists. (male and female). Rounding out the staff is a highly trained and knowledgeable recording and sound technician who insures that the band's live sound and 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.

The band's ever growing music library is quite extensive with over 3000 arrangements. At present there are two staff arrangers/writers who are defining the sound of the JTBB by capturing the uniqueness of the musicians who make up the JTBB and the dreams of Joey Thomas.
