One of the Twin Cities’ longest running Big Bands, the Cedar Avenue Big Band has compiled a book of over 400 musical arrangements by renowned composers such as Bill Holman, Thad Jones and Sammy Nestico. The band also features the music of resident composers including Dean Sorensen, John Ahern and founder of the group, composer/arranger/trombonist Steve Devich. Hearing this music performed live is an essential experience for any music enthusiast.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
