The Spokane Jazz Orchestra has been bringing the sound of life to the Spokane community for more than 40 years!
The SJO is a traditional big band orchestra that performs thrilling arrangements from classic big bands, jazz legends and modern jazz ensembles. For more than four decades, the SJO has featured performances and arrangements that highlight local artists and composers, as well as drawing inspiration from other genres.
Milonga was founded in the summer of 2001 by Spokane native Nicolas Vigil, and has since become a household name throughout the Pacific NW. The band plays original songs, based on the musical traditions of Latin America, Spain, and the Caribean. Milonga's focus is to expose diverse audiences to a Pan-Latin musical and cultural experience.
