Dance to the sounds of The Basie Orchestra, one of the most thriving big bands in history With
17 Grammy awards, our musicians have grown up with the Kansas City Swing style of Count Basie and add their own voice to the band. With 19 performers, 17 sidemen, 1 vocalist, and 1 bandleader, we’ve become the premier jazz band. Check out the Kansas City style swing for yourself. Our Orchestra celebrates the big band experience through the completely original and identifiable Count Basie repertoire. Come and experience our musical heritage. We will be releasing our latest recording in the next few months, be on the look out for new album wherever the Count Basie Orchestra performs. You can then say, ” I came back to Basie.
