Can we fit them all on the stage??? Yes we Can!

The Big Band Theory had its genesis in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, without any clear idea where this project might end up. And… WOW! what an explosion of sound when seventeen of Kitchener-Waterloo’s (and beyond) most talented jazzers showed up for that first rehearsal in October 2011.

The band’s music ranges from the danceable swing music of Benny Goodman’s orchestra and Sammy Nestico to Jazz Rock of the 1970s right up to the extraordinary contemporary sound of the Big Phat Band of L.A. The Big Band Theory is an exciting band to listen to and hear live.
