PERFORMANCES

The Evolution Big Band spent the majority of 2021 preparing more than 60 new big band arrangements for our audiences. The band also performed a series of private events that benefited the Live Oak Performing Arts Center.

So far in 2022, the band has performed for four enthusiastic and appreciative audiences. Here's a sampling from a recent performance: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The band is taking some well-deserved time off until August, when we will restart our weekly rehearsals to prepare for our Fall performance schedule. The band is currently booking events, and we will post new concert dates as they are confirmed.

These concerts will feature popular big band arrangements from Count Basie, Buddy Rich, Sammy Nestico Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, Gordon Goodwin, and many more. Plus, we will showcase modern arrangements of jazz standards.   

Unless otherwise noted, admission is free and reservations are not required. As always, we will be asking for goodwill donations to help us support non-profit organizations in the area. 

Our mission is to support local charitable causes by performing contemporary arrangements of big band music at concerts and private events. The band has raised more than $250,000 for non-profit organizations in the area.  If your organization is interested in booking the Evolution Big Band to help your fundraising and outreach efforts, please contact Executive Director Jeff Shawd (jeffshawd@msn.com).
